The PS3 is a Sports Car to the Xbox 360’s Mundane vehicle

VanquishCar 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.

“The 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,” said Inaba, to the fellows from VG247.

“It doesn’t have the same range as a sports car, but it has more versatility.”

After criticism of a sub-standard PS3 port of Bayonetta, Platinum games are using the PS3 as their lead platform this time around.

“It’s about adapting your game to those two sorts of different frameworks,” added Inaba. “That’s where we’re focusing. Fundamentally, the gameplay experience itself is the exact same game.”

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.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
