TotalVideoGames.com reports that Rockstar has confirmed that their next controversial game, Bully, will now be a PlayStation 2 exclusive. The news hasn't really popped up anywhere else and the game's official site still lists Xbox as a platform they are supporting, so we'll have to see exactly where this goes.

But, with more and more developers abandoning the Xbox platform as of late, this really comes as no surprise.

If the news is true, would things be any different if the Xbox 360 were fully backward compatible? Does Microsoft even care? Bully seems like one of those games that could become a real hit for the PS2 and we're sure Microsoft would have enjoyed at least a taste of that success.
