inFamous developer believes that the PS3 is twice as powerful as the Xbox 360

Infamous 2

Not content with just saying that inFamous 2 could only happen on the PS3 the PS3 loyal developer has now stated that inFamous 2 is only using 50% of the PS3’s power and it already couldn’t be run on a Xbox 360.

And they expect to pile even more power into this game meaning that you will need to duct tape 2 Xbox 360’s together if you want to run inFamous on the Microsoft platform.

Really though comments like this simply make a developer look a little ordinary as games like Gears of War and Mass Effect 2 have proven that the Xbox 360 is an incredible machine, it may not be as powerful as the PS3 but to say the PS3 is twice as powerful is a little bit of a stretch.

But then again Sucker Punch are betting the future of their company on the Sony platform so you can’t blame them for trying to hype it up as much as possible.

I for one am looking forward to inFamous 2 and hope it lives up to the expectations they are setting.

    Twice as fast? LOL!

    Developers are free to make claims like that. But then they need to put their money where their mouth is. Show us a game that looks twice as good and i’ll happily believe them.

    Have you seen that game play footage of Rage running on the 360? Very impressive! I think he’s just cuddling up to his employer. 😉

    All’s fair in business. It’s like when Kudo Tsunodo declared that PC gaming was dead, or when whatsisface declared that the PS Move was a pale imitation of the Wii, or even when Kudo declared Kinect the future of gaming, because waving our hands around is.. not in the least bit sad. Obviously Sucker Punch is playing the political game, and they need to generate as much hype as possible and what better way than to throw a bit of flamebait onto the internet (and reading the comments so far, it’s been successful).

    Xbots and PSants love to fight virtual battles about which system is truly the most awesome. I’m sure the PC gamers find it all very amusing.

    Hmm thats very interesting coming from a developer thats never made a single game for the XBOX, I mean if Bioware or maybe Rockstar said this it would actually mean something.

    I read the interview myself and the guy says nothing like that. So take a chill pill Gavin. Read the interview properly. What part of Sucker Punch has no idea did you miss? Even the original article on CVG has a question mark at the end of the title. Nice one Gavin. All he said was that the PS3 had more horse power and we all already know that to be true because the Cell is a powerful CPU. Heres the interview guys before Aussious and Fox have a heart attack…….

    “So yeah… Do you think [Xbox 360] could pull off Uncharted 2? Everyone’s comparing us to Uncharted 2, so if you think you can make Uncharted 2 on Xbox then OK maybe you can make Infamous 2 on Xbox.”

    He added: “It’s pure speculation, [Sucker Punch has] no idea of whether we can do it because we don’t work on Xbox or any other console.

    “That’s good for us because we don’t have to play to the lowest denominator of the consoles. We’re playing to the PS3 and we’re making a game that we can make, technology isn’t limiting us.”

    He added: “We can focus on the specific things that the PS3 provides and tailor everything on the technology specifically for it so that we can squeeze every drop out of it.”

    “And I don’t know if we could make this game if we had to go cross-platform.”

    I have to agree with AC!D here.

    Gavin, you using your grade 4 maths to make that very simplistic comparison between the two consoles just looks idiotic.

    piet & Ac!d : I disagree with both of you, Gavin is posting a summary of the article and when asked directly if he thinks 50% of the PS3s capacity already exceeds Xbox he said, and I’m quoting here, “”Well, yeah. Yeah. I mean we’re still a way away from launching so we’re probably going to throw more stuff on that Cell processor.”

    Article is accurate IMO.
