Dead or Alive 5 set for PS3?

No 360 exclusivity for next game?

Word on the street today, via the Official PlayStation magazine, has it that Dead or Alive 5 is in the works for the PS3 console.

If this rumour proves true, this would be something of a coup for Sony, recent entries in the Dead or Alive series having been exclusive to the Xbox as far back as Dead or Alive 3.

Dead or Alive 2, however, was the last time the series starred on PlayStation, Sony delivering that game to the PS2 some eight years ago.

We'll have more on this just as soon as we can, previous speculation pointing to a multi-platform release for the fifth game from Tecmo-Koei.

More on this as we get.
