Creative director and co-owner at The Astronauts Adrian Chmielarz is, defined by statements he made regarding the PS4 being more powerful the Xbox One. While he later stated that it was the games that defined the consoles, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter creator still has some interesting views on how to approach next gen development.

It's always reassuring to hear devs say they throw parity out the window.

His honest answer suggest that some developers to cripple the better version for 'parity.'

deadfrag942d ago (Edited 942d ago )

Its obvious true and will happen more than what some people are expecting.Expect some of the major developers to go for parity Ubisoft,Bethesda...

Before anyone brings up a parity clause. A parity clause has to do with both games having the same features, it has nothing to do with graphics. This is a common mistake people makes about the parity clause that MS has with publishers.

So much delusion... :/

Copen942d ago

It has everything to do with graphics buddy. That's the entire reason for the "parity clause" to begin with. MS has the money to create a powerful machine but no they choose to chase the Nintendo Wii crowd the casual gamer instead of the hardcore gamers that built up the Xbox brand to begin with. I honestly can't believe you're trying to defend them having the "parity clause" to begin with but at least know WTF you're talking about which you clearly do not. MS and their business practices hurt the industry way more than anything they improve and that's really not up for debate.

Gozer942d ago

Nope. Parity clause has to do with features and release date, nothing more. MS isn't any more evil than sony, you are naïve if you think otherwise. It really blows my mind how many people misunderstand what a parity clause is. You are wrong, as well as the majority of sony posters in this story.

incredibleMULK942d ago

read the bottom of the article you posted.

FAIL. ms prohibits developers for utilizing other platforms strengths.""

try reading the whole article before you post next time dunski.

Ipunchbabiesforfun942d ago (Edited 942d ago )

"Not all agree, however. One representative from a publisher who wished to remain anonymous told Eurogamer Microsoft's policy blocks developers from taking advantage of other platforms' strengths."

That's hearsay...come on now. Again, might be true, but there isn't any PROOF! You all just want to believe that because Microsoft sucks! it probably is as I said they suck, but it still isn't written anywhere.

The problem with this option is that time = money.

elninels943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

Time is money.

The ps4 is hands down the more powerful machine

Fireseed943d ago

Idk I think my dual Titan rig will be running this game more efficiently than a PS4, but hey it's an opini....

Oh wait, no. It's a fact. It's a cold hard fact.

falviousuk943d ago

Dont sya things like that, the sony crowd brush over those to crow about other things.


Evilsnuggle943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

Pc fanBoys time . We are talking about Game consoles and here's comes a thirsty pc fanBoy looking for attention. Said it before saying it again. PC fanBoys are worst that Jehovah's Witnesses knocking on your door ask you have you heard about PC? [email protected] it we got it your resolution is 4k on you 10' monitor got it. Shouldn't you be comparing GPU's with other pc fanBoys on steam forum or yelling And petitioning Facebook about Oculus Rift or something. Maybe you should start a new petition for GTA 5 I heard any day now GTA 5 on pc. You pc fanBoys begging worked for The Division I mean petitioning. maybe you can Beg Facebook away keep them petition coming. Lol lol :-) nice try

Developers will never spend more time and money on making a weaker console version better. Developers are on timed schedules from publishers. IT doesn't make financial sense To make a weaker console version better or the same. If it takes time or money to do so.

Mr_Writer85943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

Prove you have a dual Titan rig...

It's not a fact without proof.

Infamous298943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

@Evilsnuggle he is trying to shift attention from how xbox one is weak by saying that his supposedly "dual titan rig" run the game much better than ps4 , how pathetic .

@Fireseed below, says the guy who bought the inferior version of titanfall on xbox one.

Fireseed943d ago (Edited 943d ago )


You may be talking about consoles, but this is about a game that's coming to Xbox One, PS4, AND PC! And hey we might beg for the Division, but at least we don't throw a hissy fit when a once exclusive game goes to another console... But nice try.


That orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I plan on buying this game for the PC and don't want to see it downgraded to keep in line with the inferior PS4 hardware. Cause his comments are about all versions of the game not just the consoles.

@ your Edit: In a single player story and immersion driven experience like The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter, I'll buy it on the platform that runs it the best. But all my friends who play shooters play their games on Xbox... so I bought it for Xbox. Simple as that.

GarrusVakarian943d ago

Lmao, dual titan rig?

What are you trying to do, run the entire world as a simulation?

What a waste of money.

Fireseed943d ago (Edited 943d ago )


I'm a 3D character artist... I need the power to sculpt nearly 100 mil polygons at once. And I game so going the route of the Quadros wasn't optimal nor viable.


I'm a computer artist... any proof I provide would just as easily be accused of being photshopped. Or in some other way forged.

Studio-YaMi943d ago

It's funny,you replied to all the people who replied to you but didn't try to acknowledge "Mr_Writer85" comment on your "so claimed" rig.

Calling out BS.

LexHazard79943d ago

I'll take my chances on a $399 better optimization PS4 version! And save money on my electric bill aswell! Two Titan played out pimp you should have got two 780ti..not even two more expensive Titans can f with that!

Fireseed943d ago


Well owning an expensive rig isn't for everyone, but good on ya to getting the game anyway it looks like it's gonna be awesome! :)

And UGH! I wish the 780ti would've been suitable for what I needed cause god are those specs sexy, as is the price. But unfortunately the 780ti's as of the time I bought my cards and at the moment of me writing this cannot be soft modded to be "verified" hardware when running Maya where I do all my renders. :(

Why o why943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

Seems Mr fire picks and chooses when it's time to champion xbox and when to champion pc . So transparent it's comical. He'll be in the next xbox article reppin their exclusives next. When the topic switches to power he switches to pc akin to the bullied kid running to his older brother for help.

Most of us have pc's but we can't play uncharted or gran tourismo, Alan wake or crackdown on them.

Mr_Writer85943d ago (Edited 943d ago )

Still no proof to back up your facts.

Guess you are just a butt hurting XboxOne owner.

Everyone knows PC's can out perform consoles, but making up a rig to try and hide the butthurt is quite sad really.

@Why oh Why Alan Wake is on PC isn't it?

Fireseed942d ago


Im probably gonna regret even bothering with this but here's my PC handles.



Mr_Writer85942d ago (Edited 942d ago )

I never said you didn't own A PC did I?

I just said prove you own a rig with two titans.

Here is my Steam profile. However my laptop is not some beast and I don't go around pretending I have some super powerful PC to make up for my choice in console.

And then making up a fake job to get out of providing evidence.

Cryptcuzz942d ago

Wow man, that is what you get for spouting BS about PC this and PC that. Reading through the comments, I was actually hoping you would have proof of your claim of a rig with dual titans. This is so bad, even I feel bad for you. Serves you right.

PC can be great for gaming, but it is not for everyone. Just don't go into an article about X1 and PS4 and trying to be an online warrior about your rig, when you are clearly a poser.

You can hang out bro, you just don't gotta lie to kick it.

Fireseed942d ago (Edited 942d ago )

Ok here's a screen grab of my receipt...

I of course had to blur out some things.

Happy now?

And no... the job is not made up.

Flutterby942d ago

Yes we all believe you fireseed lol you spend thousands on a pc so you can play amazing games at super high res yet you bought titanfall on the xbone right /s

Copen942d ago

Your computer is irrelevant you PC elitist troll. If it's so good why aren't you playing a game on it now instead of trolling articles shouting the specs to a computer your mother bought you?

Edsword942d ago

How much did you pay for that?

Rainstorm81942d ago

Fake reciepts and Steam nbames>

How about you pop open the panel and post a picture? If you gonna boast about your powerful rig and your technical know how sure posting a pic is mere childs play..

Alot of credibility lost on here who you are..... a Xbox shame in that

kingdom18942d ago

Where in this comparison was a PC even a consideration? You CAN'T compare PCs to consoles when they can be continuously upgraded to the highest possible tech, if one so wishes.

I think it's funny that you are getting disagrees on proven facts. That's like someone saying earth is round and being disagreed. Oh Xbots.

Mr_Writer85942d ago

Buying two of them and having two installed are not the same thing.

You could have two rigs with one in each.

You could of been buying them for someone else.

You could of stole that screenshot.

A picture of your rig with the two Titans installed with a hand written note like "is this good enough Mr Writer". Would of done it.

One question tho. Who am I? No one, why do you care if people think you are making stuff up or not? Why put yourself in that position? Maybe you should care less about what people you will probably never meet think.

That or just stop boasting to try and get one over people on the Internet....

Just a thought.

Ipunchbabiesforfun942d ago

lol, well to be fair if he bought 2 of them to put in 2 different rigs he still could potentially put 2 in one rig at any time if he wanted. But the fact he posted a bunch of receipts is pretty lame lol
