This week's radiOPM podcast featured Full Auto 2 producer Mike Gallo from Sega of America who talked in great detail about the company's upcoming PlayStation 3 exclusive launch title.
Fun things I learned from this interview:
-Sony still doesn't have any online info for devs, except "it will handle gamer profiles". lollerskates
-Launch games really ARE using 3rd party connection methods because PS3's network system isn't ready (obviously- see above).
-Launch games might have no Achievements (er, I guess that means no Entitlements, right? Or are Entitlements actually going to be different?).
From what i heard there is no game right now that is using the Entitlements, just cause they(PS3 game developers), dont think its a good idea to put it in, and really no one cares about it, seeing is how its a 360 concept and the devs want to focus more on the game, than anything else. But yea, i also heard that the supposed 40player online servers for Resistance will be from a 3rd party connection for now, because the Online service wont be ready right at launch, most likely about a month later, but for now, they are using a temporary connection to have online service.
Great new feature, the developers are already passing on it!
Not every game has to use the tilt functionality just because it's in the controller.
I'm sure there's a few 360 games that don't use both the joysticks or maybe aren't using all the buttons but we don't have people crying foul about them not using parts of the 360 controller.
If the tilt functionality suits the game and serves a purpose, I'm sure the developers will use it.
So the confirmed list of 1080p games looks like this:
- Virtua Tennis 3
- Marvel Ultimate Alliance
- NBA 07
- Ridge Racer 7
- Mobile Suit Gundam
- Gran Turismo : HD
- Full Auto 2
And ofcourse Resistance is aiming for 1080p as well. Good to see developers don't find it too hard to implement 1080p. Especially as the PS3 version of these games seem to have improved graphics overall compared to the X360 version, since it would have been questionable if the higher resolution made the games look worse than their X360 counterpart.
And nice to see they've added new online modes for the PS3 version of Full Auto 2 as well compared to Full Auto on the X360. Now I just hope the gameplay improved considerably over the X360 version.
virtua tennis is being developed by separate studios for each console and there isn't a difference in marvel ultimate alliance (graphically its not super demanding) the other games you list are sony only... unless you mean nba live 07... but nba 07 is SCE
I'm still not sure why Sega made the first game for the Xbox 360 and then its sequel is an excluivse to the PS3. I would of thought Sega wanted more money. Still this game was alright on the 360.
The 360 version was good for younger kids. I have a 7 year old who loved it. It did have frame rate problems and was repetitive. But, kids don’t care about that so much. All games aren’t made for us dorks:)
The novelty wore off real quik. I did not have any frame reate problems at all. But the game was boring very boring. Getting achivements was the only reason I had to play it.
