PS3 Haze Cleared for Dec. 14 Release

Much like Rudolph leading Santa's sleigh in the murky winter night, Haze, one of this year's few third party PlayStation 3-only titles, will light the way for Sony's console on December 14, reports Three Speech.

Telling the tale of a drug-enhanced commando facing a moral quandry, the first current-gen effort from TimeSplitters developer Free Radical was originally announced for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The other two versions disappeared from Ubisoft documents in May, and at the time, an Ubisoft rep declined to label the game an exclusive, chuckling, "We just felt that PS3 needed some love." nope

Later on, Free Radical co-founder and GoldenEye 007 (N64) veteran David Doak claimed that development of the first person shooter was proceeding on all platforms, but that the game would debut on PlayStation 3 first.
