This just makes me so happy, After a slow couple of news days it seems that we have a little bit of excitement coming back into the industry.
Ray Maguire, from the black team, has been chatting to Videogamer.com about how he feels the PS3 now has a large enough install base for third party developers to start using it as a lead platform.
Well that’s not interesting, however he goes on to take a unsubtle swipe at the competition.
Apparently he believes that third party developers will find it easier to develop on the more powerful platform, the PS3, and then just remove functionality for the consoles which can’t quite handle itâ€¦ or in other words gimp the games for the 360.
What’s so interesting about this? Well according to Videogamer DICE is using the PS3 as the lead platform for Mirror’s Edge. Which means we have a perfect test subject to verify Ray’s claim, if Mirror’s Edge looks and works better on the PS3 then he has a point and we can lay this silly war to rest, However if the 360 version looks better he is going to have quite the time explaining himself.
Nothing like putting a noose around your neck, so bets anyone on whether or not Mirror’s Edge is going to be better on the PS3 or not?
