Why There Is No XCOM PS3 Version.
The developers of Xcom 2 Ps3 had initially planned to release XCOM 2 only on one platform. They claimed that it was easier to develop the game on one platform as compared to multiple platforms. Although they later launched the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox one, the reasoning that the fewer the platforms the easier it is to develop is the main reason why we do not have an XCOM 2 PS3 version. The developers have constantly shut out the possibility of an XCOM 2 PS3 version. If you were hooked onto XCOM already the good news is there are dozens of alternatives on PS3 that offer the turn-based strategy gameplay that comes with XCOM 2.
