Eidos daddy company SCi has thrown in the towel and decided to release its blaster duo Kane & Lynch: Dead Men and Crossfire on PlayStation 3.
This sets up Kane & Lynch, the next shooter from the Hitman boys, for a simultaneous release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this year. Crossfire meanwhile, a new game from the developer behind the Conflict series, will arrive next year on the same platforms.
SCi also says it's in advanced negotiations for the film rights to the Kane & Lynch film, following up

The highly-anticipated PlayStation 3 sequel to Guerilla Game's Killzone is to be officially unveiled at next month's Game Developer's Confrence.
Well placed US sources have revealed to us that the flagship Sony shooter will be shown in full glory at the San Francisco event, perhaps even in the form of a playable demo.
As well as its high price point, the PS3 (like most consoles) has faced criticism for a lack of really high profile, compelling games which make it a "must buy" and the big
Is Sony going to use shooter Killzone PS3 to steal some of Microsoft's Halo 3 multiplayer beta thunder this spring?
Well, that's what a rumor on 1UP.com is suggesting, saying that a demo of the PS3 sequel that was last in the public eye at E3 2005 will actually appear before the Halo 3 beta begins.
It's additionally rumored that Killzone PS3 is well into development - so far in fact that the online section of the game has existed in playable form for nearly a year. Coupled with the demo
Unfurl that DS, rip the stylus from its sheath and point it towards the heavens because here comes one game that'll let you shoot a flamethrower, pilot ships, jump hurdles and assault people of Eastern European descent. Konami Classics Series: Arcade Hits - featuring Contra, Gradius, Time Pilot, Track & Field, Rush'N Attack, and more - is coming to the DS to make you remember why you cared about Konami for any reason other than Solid Snake.
To be honest, youre going to have to be a real King of Fighters fan to get the most out of this. A conversion of the original coin-op game, this throws in a lot of stuff - 11 teams, 47 characters (including three new ‘uns), three new abilities and the, er, Judgement System, whatever that is - and much emphasis on the continuing
It's the end of another great year for gamers. Two new systems launched. Two handhelds waged bloody battle. And next gen gaming got a big kick in the pants - thanks to a year of lonely rule by the Xbox 360. PC gaming fought fire with nukes, waging its battle against the console-based onslaught. In short, it ruled.
How do we handle this? We're handing out our gleaming Platinum Chalice to those games and systems which gave us the business. No boring list of 37 different strategy games, divided
It seems Killzone PS3 is likely to get episodic content after the game's director has stated that "the Killzone that will be in stores is only the beginning."
While this isn't an official confirmation that the game will be broken up into chapters, it adds some substance to the speculation that Sony could use Killzone on PS3 to promote the idea of downloading episodic content from the online PlayStation
Killzone on PS3 will not be shown again "until it's going to exceed people's expectations," Phil Harrison, executive vice president for Sony Europe, has revealed.
"It will be next year before we show it again," Harrison states, although he claims that "some elements already exceed the trailer."
Sony hasn't given Killzone on PS3 an airing since the infamously eye-boggling trailer that was released in 2005 at the E3 games exhibition in Los Angeles, wowing audiences with its retina-stunning
A trio of trademark applications have appeared in Japan rekindling hope that the Katamari series may make a return. For last month developer Namco Bandai registered three new names: Beautiful Katamari Damacy, Katamari Damacy Tres Bien and Katamari Damacy-kun.
And while our hopes have been raised again, the names can't be taken as proof of the existence of new games because applications can also cover potential TV shows, movies, fluffy dolls, sweets and just about anything
