Just Cause 3, Square Enix Denies: PS4 and Xbox One Are Treated Equally

VG247: "We've been contacted by a Square Enix representative that clarified: PS4 is not the preferred platform for the devs. Actually Xbox One version is better optimised at the moment. We'll meet the Creative Director this afternoon to know more about this."

Way to over-analyze things... Don't get so defensive. ;)

They really need to stop talking, they just gave the so called journalist something else to use against them. I see this being misinterpreted horribly.

littlezizu861d ago

Director of game said PS4 is lead platform, don't you think people tend to trust director word over some representative of SE.

IrishSt0ner861d ago

Any games that come out on all platforms are clearly using PC as the lead platform, I mean isn't it obvious considering all games are developed using PCs.. they've even said as much here.

There are of course cases in which games optimised for consoles then ported to PC after the fact, those ports usually end up a disaster, and are rare.

chaos999861d ago

Not always is the case. See tons of pc port with minimal custom graphics options. Also atman ak...

littlezizu861d ago

Clearly not always, recent example of Batman Arkham Knight which also had PS4 as the lead platform.

JJShredder861d ago

You know I posted in the original article about how it would be stupid to NOT use PCs as the lead platform and got downvoted to hell.

You speak the truth and people don't seem to realize the fact that games are generally built first and foremost of Dev kits which are freaking PCs!

Not using the capabilities of PCs hold all versions of the games back.

Arkham Knight as other mentioned is a perfect example as it could of really looked next gen if the graphical assets were built with PCs in mind then teaked down to console capabilites.

You clearly have no idea about game devloping, True the game is made on PC's but is made for consoles and coded for consoles with the help of SDK's, most games are devloped for consoles then ported to pc

"Not always is the case. See tons of pc port with minimal custom graphics options. Also atman ak... "

30 multiplatform games this year.. so one bad apple equals 3.33%. That sure is tonnes of poor PC ports eh? Games with 'minimal options' still have large post-processing, resolution and FPS differences.

"Clearly not always, recent example of Batman Arkham Knight which also had PS4 as the lead platform. "

Re-read my initial second pararaph I said exactly that, and again this represents 3.33% of all multiplats in 2015.

@JJShredder - Yea man you're rational and correct, so people disagree with you... smh

"You clearly have no idea about game devloping, True the game is made on PC's but is made for consoles and coded for consoles with the help of SDK's, most games are devloped for consoles then ported to pc"

You clearly know much much less, games are developed on a WINDOWS PC (mainly using third-party game engines such as Unity or UE4) then OPTIMISED for the specific console, it's NEVER the other way round... the rare crap ports like Batman do the exact same process, it only sucked on PC because another developer used the console optimised version to create the PC port - THIS IS A VERY RARE AND DUMB THING TO DO.

It's frankly hilarious people trying to argue that most PC ports come from the console version, delusional or misinformed, pick one.

"In fact, to be honest we found that the Microsoft console, at the time, is the one that enjoys the optimized version better." Just goes to show that VG247 shouldn't try and 'quote' people on the show floor.

littlezizu861d ago

Totally Agree, Developer of the game have already told PS4 is the lead platform. Common sense tell you Dev word over show floor guy.
The guy in show floor is there to promote the game and juggle between fan boys in order to avoid negative spin.

shloobmm3861d ago

And u know this as fact how?

TheCommentator861d ago (Edited 861d ago )

Fyi, lead console ≠ better optimized

The "better" platform doesn't look as good as the "weaker" console? Perhaps the easy-to-program-for hare is using up all it's energy trying to make the less understood tortoise look bad at the beginning, while the tortoise continues to close the gap? What happens now that devs have the tools (DX12)to use the XB1 the way MS intends?

FoxyGotGame861d ago

Both Versions will be 'equally' good. WTF does it matter which console is preferred by an individual who happens to be the project director, who is paid to produce results on all platforms.

This infantile mindset throws Gaming into the Gutter /
