EA "Not Quite" Over PS3 Hurdles

Electronic Arts said during a Thursday conference call that PlayStation 3 development still isn't quite caught up with that of Xbox 360.

When asked by an analyst if PS3 game development has yet caught up with the Xbox 360's faster development cycle, EA CEO John Riccitiello said, "Not quite. There's no doubt that Electronic Arts, along with many other publishers, had some challenges essentially meeting the technical specifications effectively on the PlayStation 3."

Perhaps they should call Infinity Ward?

mintaro3854d ago

they should get a lesson in how to make proper multiplat games for the 360 and PS3, capcom and activision could give them a few pointers

Blademask3854d ago

Its clearly the hardware.

Everyone else just gets lucky with it.. its unpossible to dev for. ::rolls eyes::

The dumbest part is this is exactly what these idiots were saying about the PS2. Its like they wouldn't think to get some more resources together to sell a good product to consumers.

If they feel its not worthy of those resources, they should accept the money from Sony to develop games in the first place.

ea is committed to making the best games they can so i am not suprised.

Criterion says hi. According to him, titles started on the PS3 and ported to the 360 have less to almost no problems. I ask, why don't they just continue that route as it seems to benefits both consoles ?

"Perhaps they should call Infinity Ward?"

Lets hope they don't call Infinity Ward asking who to host an online game with, or design an online multiplayer lobby system.

I dont know y they (EA) are being such MS Lovers, they have seen that if the develop on the ps3 then port over to 360...(BurnOut ParAdise) the game looks wonderfull on both systems >.<

But they still want to lead on 360 and port over to PS3 which is why people keep saying 360 is better that Ps3...

antoinetm3854d ago

Why can others make tremendous games on the PS3, but EA can't? It just shows they are quite lazy.

That's because they're lazy, busy patting themselves in the back. Other developers HAD problems but they've caught up. Seems like the only "developer" still having problems is EA.
Activision, Capcom, SEGA, Naughty Dog and Insomniac seem to be doing alright.

Hey @ssholes, get back to WORK!

Let's not forget Epic games. They didn't seem to have an issue either.

Xbox is the BEST3854d ago

helping Epic to get the Unreal Engine to run effectivley on the PS#3. I classify that has having trouble. Meanwhile Microsoft never ever helped Epic with the Unreal Engine to make it run on the 360.
Behold the Power of the Cell.

I don't want another inferior port of Madden. Get me 60fps and great graphics just like 360 if not better.

EA its been a year already please step up the pace jeez!

sly7773854d ago

So when they finally do "catch up"....PS3 games will be not be suckier but just as sucky as their Xbox counterparts!!

Great, I can't wait for the next version of Madden!

PSWe603854d ago

funniest sh*t I've read all day

kalistyles3854d ago

being that EA is the largest game manufacturer in oh, what, THE F-ING WORLD!!!! You would think they would have some sort of capability to learn the freaking hardware by now. But no, not EA, not the company with the most studios worldwide. Why would they want to know the hardware that puts out the greatest machine on Earth. C'mon EA, seriously. I didn't buy Madden for the 1st time in 17 years because of last years inexcusable version for the PS3. Step up your game already. Sheesh!
