God of War: Chains of Olympus studio head Didier Malenfant tells Next-Gen that PlayStation 3 is likely to be the victor in the current console race, but says the next hardware cycle could be much more interesting.
This pretty much confirms the rumor I heard about them working on the exclusive PS3 game. I heard they were working on Jak and Dexter whiles Naughty Dog worked on something else. Am thinking Uncharted Sequel.
I can't imagine what they will do
"I can't imagine what they will do" Maybe another 4 hour game.
i don't mind a 4 hour game filled with intensity and awesomeness, its better than giving us a 40 hour game filled with boredom and bugs ;)
your a _______(insert your own word)
or a 4 hour game you can't finish because your xbox died 30 minutes in. Or a 4 hour game spread over 4 disks. Or a 3 hour game in which the last hour is an extra 4.99 off xbox live... but oh wait you bought the arcade unit so you can't even do that. Meus Resistance give it up, I've got your number.
Fitting a game as graphically intensive as GOWCOO on a handheld is quite a feat I would say. Imagine how much space all the textures, cgi movies, and scripted events/animations take up. It just goes to show that the UMD serves it's purpose in providing a cheap way to allow ample space for games to fit on, and I'm sure they used most of the capacity. The same game would be an hour long on the DS due to space limitations. So be pleased that you can enjoy a 4hr handheld game as jam packed as GOWCOO on the go.
Hmm, so how long before they become a second party studio ala Insomniac ?
Well they have been making games for Sony exclusively for a while now with the exception of Okami for wii which is a port from the PS2. So technically, they kinda are already under Sony, it just not official yet.
They are working on a Wii game. I don't see them becoming a "2nd" party developer. Which really doesn't exist. You can't speak in the 2nd person. lol, but I get what you're saying.
Whiles these guys may have just gotten their selves tickets to be the new favorite devs of PS3 owners, they just made the hate list of 360 owners with this comment.
haha..Great Comment. You pretty much right.
and this doesn't upset me one bit as I'll be playing their game (if its good) regardless. Actually, this would have been news to me if they actually said they chose the 360 instead. I mean really, did anyone expect anything different here?
Wii owners are about to love them, they are definitely working on a wii game.
iI havent heard one person say when we look a decade from now the PS3 will be in 3rd and the 360 will have kept this little 6 milloin lead that has been chipped away at for months now... WE dont even know lol... PS3 is closing the gap and soon... as in this holiday season... PS3 is going to outsell the 360 by alot. Next year and the next is domination time.(or is it already?? PS3 is winning everywhere in the world!!!! hahahahahah)
but what else is new...I have that game on my custom FW PSP. Plays great.
Come on man, you should buy the game. I have plenty of games that I didn't purchase on my CW PSP too, but this game is just pure gold and everyone should buy a copy. GoW deserves it.
I mean seriously? A great game like God Of War you're not willing to thank the developers for by making a purchase? Geez man even I have CFW and I'm still purchasing the game while I could have downloaded it a long time now. This is why the game came 2nd on the sales charts and software sells like crap on the PSP. At least Sony will learn from this mistake with the PSP2.
and I didn't buy it but you use Custom as well. Kid as long as a certain "Hardware" presents a challenge Hackers will never stop. That's the thrill. You can't play innocent for one dev and pirate the others games. As always "Developers don't BITE the HAND that FEEDS". Me surprised..naaahh
" May Peace be with you as well"..
You know that's the livelihood of many people you're messing with by downloading pirated copies of games right? People like you make me sick.
Every opinion is bias that's why they call it an opinion. I can easily say Wii is going to win it's just an opinion. They're most likely saying this because of the hardware.
Of coarse the ps3 will win... I chuckle everytime I see 256mb 360's sitting in stacks everywhere.
PS3 is the best platform, devs will keep making great games for it instead of the crapbox 360. It's just a matter of time until the 360 is considered outdated hardware and go fulfill its designed use: Kitchen Toaster May Sony Bless Us All
I like good PS3 News!!!!!!!!! ;-P
Ready at Dawn is independent, nub. Hell, they're making a Wii game right now (or porting one at least).
here we go again. this generation is not gonna be like the last previous ones, there will not be a clear winner. when someone wins it's gonna for a small amount. the real winner ? us gamers. before someone flame me. i own a ps3 and an xbox360. and i rgularly play wii on my friends house and i love it also.
"Chains of Olympus Dev Choses PS3 Over 360" Duh who saw that comment coming. Boring article just geared at sony fanboys. You know ps3 would be the best system in the market if they just concentrate more on releasing more exclusive games then just constantly working on these "games" like home and little big planet. PS3 has finally and I mean finally at a price point more acceptable to a consumer. But right now I am just not interested in anything coming out on the PS3. No I dont like FF I havent like the series since FF3 on snes when it game was gimped by the ultima stone. As for MGS the only good MGS was the original one that first came out on the PS1. Everyone after that just look great but very lame gameplay.
But i think the last MGS game was one of the best, if not, best.
If you don't have enough staff to develop for both platforms it makes sense to only program for one console. Otherwise you're pretty much running away from money.
I for one am not looking foward to it right now. Things always start off shakey and high priced, and I can honestly say that Im content with the graphics im getting off my consoles right now,, even the wii. Mario galaxies, Call of duty and Burnout look wicked. Killzone looks even more sic. I cant imagine it being any better. Anyways, It is said that the ps3's hardware is whats stoping all of the games coming out sooner than later. But think about this. Imagine how difficult games will be if made on the xbox 720 or the ps4. The devs Bi*ch about how hard it is for them now. And anyways,, this is coming from a psp dev. He might as well be making ps2 games, and he obviously doesnt know too much about next gen gaming. Im sure Insomniac and Infinity Ward could put up a good argument with this guy. One more thing. I am a ps3 fanboy, there is no doubt about it. But I do like the 360 too. I would even own one if I wasnt so worried about it breaking down on me. I think I would support the ps3 if I was a dev too. Its not that the xbox lacks the hardware, but the ps3 has way more potential at this point. And I believe the xbox is almost clocked out. I even heard an xbox dev talk about how dead rising was burning up everyones 360. Thats coming from a dev. I dont know man, Im a game whore,, give me a console that can last.
we know what console they're moving on to after the PSP...
