That man has very good points.

What? Really?

On topic: These guys cant even get the PS3 version of Skyrim working on a console that released over 5 years ago let alone work on a console yet to come.

IRetrouk2229d ago

BOOM!!!! There it is ^^^

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32229d ago

The Ps3 has nothing to do with the risk of bringing their resources to a console that hasn't been released yet. If you read the article you would see his points. But let me guess you're a multiconsole owner who "wisely" bought the PS3 version of their game lol. Don't address me in ignorant comments please. I was wondering why you were ignored....

IRetrouk2229d ago (Edited 2229d ago )

He has a point though wraith, I own both the 360 and ps3, I got skyrim for the ps3 simply because I prefer the controller, the game was a mess, no excuses should be made for developers that release faulty products, should I be made to have an inferior version because of my choice in which console I buy my games on? Did I not pay the same amount of money? They can't even get dlc to work, and the whole myth of every 3rd party game being better on 360 is a little old now, we all know the ps3 can go toe to toe with the 360 when programmed properly, don't make excuses for lazy devs.

KMCROC542229d ago

The article wasn't about getting a certain system do all the thing created in the game . but it was about a point of view from a Publisher PR rep view.

Muigi2229d ago

I was thinking the same thing lol. the only cosole they know how work properly is a 360. God forbide when next gen truly arrives.

This is what is going to hold nintendo back. They are making the same mistakes that kept the 3rd party from developing on thier consoles. The modern 21st century console needs to be state of the art so that devs can make the games that they want to. Bethesda can't make groundbreaking HD open world games on grandpa's computer chips. Epic can't maximize unreal engine 3 on it either. It's time to listen to Epic and move forward, not backward.

GrieverSoul2229d ago

Epic says that because that have an "engine" to sell. With each generation, an Unreal Engine gets a new version. If the consoles dont renovate, the engine is the same and they dont sell the new and improved version of it.

With each game sold with an Unreal engine, a profit is made but not as big as buying a new version of it.

tehpees32229d ago

If you actually read the article you'll see he isn't convinced enough will buy Durango and Orbis to justify the cost of development. They aren't jumping on board with anybody until the hardware is set in stone and the install bases are there.


KMCROC542229d ago

I would not be quick to blame Publisher or 3rd party developers , most of Nintendo's issue w/ 3rd parties they created.

Bethesda can't even handle the ps3. Fallout 3 and Vegas are damn near broken as is Skyrim. They have a lot of nerve. lmao And yes I know they are the publisher shame on them anyway.

TheMasterShake2229d ago

speak for yourself i've played both Fallout 3 & New Vegas on PS3 and never had any problems.

waltyftm2229d ago

Not sure about New Vegas, but i have the Platinum on Fallout 3 and never had a single problem with it.

Baka-akaB2229d ago

You are the one speaking for yourself . Cool for you if you play it fine ... but those games were notoriously full of issues of issues even acknowledged by Bethesda

TheMasterShake2229d ago (Edited 2229d ago )

i didn't say they weren't jackass, how about i say it in words you could possibly understand. i basically said don't assume that everyone is experiencing the same problems as other people when they aren't. i've seen plenty of people on here besides me that have played the said games with no issues at all. am i saying its good that bethesda has been lazy developing those games on the ps3. No im not, so get your panties out a twist.

EDIT @waltyftm thank you for proving my point, zeon said fallout 3 was broken. you haven't had a problem with it and neither have i.

Awesome_Gamer2229d ago (Edited 2229d ago )

Haha, yeah, it seems Bethesda can only work on shitty, easy to develope for consoles (360) it's thier loss, i'm getting a Wii-U and PS4, fuck Micro$oft and Bethesda..

Edit: i know i sound like a Sony/Nintendo fanboy, but i don't give a damn..

SOD_Delta2229d ago (Edited 2229d ago )

Fanboy? I don't think so. Microsoft lost all of their 1st party developers. Sony and Nintendo both have huge 1st party support. I don't see the point in the next Xbox. Microsoft needs to figure out something because Halo and timed exclusive DLC isn't going to cut it next gen. I'm sure PSN will be on par with XBL next gen.

OT: Even though Bethesda games are buggy on PS3 I generally enjoy them. And I think they will support Wii-u eventually.

Baka-akaB2229d ago

Well i'm not sold on bethesda , so a "fair trade off"

DA_SHREDDER2229d ago

Bethesda can't even get off of Microsoft's lap. Did anyone think Bethesda was gonna embrace Nintendo in the first place? Sorry Bethesda, your games are not needed on the Nintendo platform to be relevant. That's not even an insult, it's the truth, and says alot about your company. Just wish Bethesda weren't MS fanboys.
