Regarding the HD consoles’ architecture, Platinum’s Atsushi Inaba – producer of Vanquish – reckons the PS3 is a sports car, while the 360 is more of your everyday vehicle.
He believes the PS3 has more horsepower, but the 360 offers more versatility.
â€œThe PS3 is kind of like a sports car that’s very high-performance and specific in its usage, whereas the 360 is more like a car that everybody’s driving,â€ said Inaba, to the fellows from VG247.
â€œIt doesn’t have the same range as a sports car, but it has more versatility.â€
After criticism of a sub-standard PS3 port of Bayonetta, Platinum games are using the PS3 as their lead platform this time around.
â€œIt’s about adapting your game to those two sorts of different frameworks,â€ added Inaba. â€œThat’s where we’re focusing. Fundamentally, the gameplay experience itself is the exact same game.â€
If leading on the PS3 means everybody gets to experience the sheer knee-sliding, guns-blazing insanity of Vanquish with the same graphical fidelity, I’m all for it. Vanquish is expected to release later this year.
