Development on EA's next instalment in the highly-acclaimed Burnout series is being focused on the PlayStation 3, developer Criterion has said in an Interview.
Criterion are Sony fans wholeheartedly, so yeah they will intentionally skimp on the 360 version.
Here is a link to the whole interview:
since they preferred PS2 hardware, and that the PS3 shares some instruction sets and architecture with the PS2. I already thought their crashes were amazing, but I can't wait to see what they put out there.
Motorstorm is the current king of crash physics, but I'm sure Criterion can top even that.
Like you are floating around on the moon!! Where is the gravity??
demo version of motorstorm and i have to say the crashes were explosive but not REALISTIC. Realistic would be location damage not a full explosion because you clipped a pole. Driving the truck felt like a chore and not fun at all.
Then port it over to the 360 easily within 2 weeks. Makes sense. If they did it the other way around the game would look and run like crap on the PS3 compared to the 360 like every other game that got ported over to the PS3 from the 360.
Lying must be fun huh. I wonder what you'll think up next year.
Porting a game from 360 to PS3,isn't a good idea.
Doesn't matter if they start on the PS3, the PS version will be less anyway.
As Burnout Revenge on the PS2 wasn't able to get on the level of the XBOX version of the same game
the PS2 versions are superior? (except for Revenge. That one was equal on both platforms)
Revenge looked so much sharper on the XBOX then on the PS2
Get the harderst part done first! That way the 360 version will be equivalent and not superior, as with every other multi-platform game out.
What, like a Volkswagen commercial? No thanks.
I don't care who they develop for first, so long as everyone gets some Burnout Love.
The real reason why they are not making this game for the 360 is simpler than what most think. That genre is saturated on the 360 (even 2 1st party racing games in development). You think they don't know they can't compete with PGR4 and Forza Motorsport 2 which happen to be 1st party and are guarantee to get more love from 360 gamers, and a massive ad campaing from microsoft? How many racing games are available for the 360 plus all the ones in development? They have to be stupid not to take advantage of the lack of racing titles on the PS3; almost no competition so they have a better chance selling their game on the PS3 than the 360.
Totally different genre, Forza is simulation nr. 1, PGR is a bit more arcaderacing and Burnout is fun driving hitting opponents.
I'd rather would state that someone that's into driving games, would buy multiple driving games. THe lack of (driving) games on the PS3 doesn't have to kick the sales up.
Last but not least
PS3 has 450k users now
360 has 8.6 million users
I think the 360 has more potential buyers for the game on short and long term
Did you even read the news? They are doing a 360 version. They just said that they're "specialists" on the Sony platforms and their focus will be on the PS3 version, whatever that means.
""We're kind of specialists on the Sony system. Because it was always that way on Burnout," Criterion's Alex Ward tells MSNBC, adding that Criterion is still "doing some cool stuff" on the Xbox 360 version of Burnout 5."
thanks for correction, I didn't read the article since I'm [not] very interested in the genre. I shouldn't rely on other post.
there has to be SOME kind of reason to buy a PS3, if it was just a port it WOULD NOT be better than its 360 predecessor (look at the ports COD3 and other sports titles) I agree bladestar.
Its simple and plain they're smart, they know where the PS3 is goin.. who gives a damn what the game did look like in the xbox, the ps2 version mashed the xbox version, in sales, in popularity.. so stop makin excuses now..
Because the PS2 was out a year before the XBOX, had more units out there and so sell more.
THis time around the 360 is first out. It's about at 8.6 million units out there fof 360 as we speak. It'll sell for sure. PS3 only has about 450k out now. Now compare how sales will be...
cant compare before the PS3 is available, the 360 have millions of units out but they sale maybe 25% or less of them, PS3 have sold what sony have puten into the marked that means sony have sold 100% of their units right? (so who wins??) see u cant compare before there is more ps3's in the marked... and let me refresh ur mind, about the time xbox came PS2 had a very small fan base (the media was allover sony's d1ck that time, exactly like this time around with the PS3) so maybe the 360 have that advantage (1year) but it aint big..
where you are going with this. The PS3 will sell well. The obvious flaw in your thinking is I think alot of PS3 fans think the 360 will stop selling altogether.
Unfortunetly for you that is simply not the case. At this point it will be extremely hard for the PS3 to catch up to the 360. At that price point it is not going to move as fast as you think .
What ? Saying that they only sold 25 % of their production would implies that they made like 34 millions. And for the the PS3 selling 100 %... well of course every console will sell evething until all hardcore gamers has one.
25% of 10,000,000 is 2,500,000. They just solid 2,000,000 copies of Gears. So you are saying only 500,000 people own a 360 and not Gears?
You are truly a mental midget.
nice to hear that! development studios should concentrate on the ps3! = amazing games.
Amazingly long load times and many load screens. The PS3 needs a ram stick lol
when we all know good and well that the atari 2600 is by far the best system to ever grace the face of the earth. a controller with 1 stick and 1 button that did everything you needed to do. black, white, and gray graphics at their finest. you didn't have to switch cartridges in the middle of a game. it was the first multi media console. you could listen to your walkman while you played for custom soundtracks. you could put a photo album in your lap to browse through pictures while you played asteroids. bezerk was gears of war before gears was cool. tomb raider can't hold a candle to pitfall. madden...please. 3 on 3 football with huge block characters beats that any day. so everybody needs to give up this battle right now because neither system can compete or compare with the 2600.
Buying any games ported over from PS3 to 360, look how ugly PS3 games are WTF is that piss sh*t green color?.
Fucin nasty, it's sad that i have a(top notch) HDTV hooked up to a console that can produce vibrant color and detail only to get fuced up PS3 piss poor BS ports. That sh*t is ugly truly sad and pathetic.
Im mad as hell WTF is that color in all PS3 games?. Faded 3 or 4 colours in enviroments. PS3's not even on the same level as the 360 as far as im concerned.
Sony really fu*k up on the PS3 and it will show only months from now.
That sh*t green color because of the PS3, folks are not going to like that sh*t.
thats right my pretty, get more and more rabid, show your true colors more, you rabid fanboy. Muahahahaha! Whats the matter? poor baby mad?
I Don't Believe or even Care is cause of the Fact EA is bullsh1t artists. When both of them come out You notice a dramatic deference between the 2 in lighting and Framerate. My Bad 3, Online mode.
as with madden and and other games E.A. brings out on the 360 they half do Azz do the job anyway ..
seriouslly who speaks Nerd-a-nese?. WTF is Fanboy?, is it because i dont like PlayStation. haha hehe.
yo 360 freaks, are ya mad?? well hit ya heads on the wall.. everybody knows that the PS3 is 1000000 more powerfull than 360 (and out) its simple these people are smart and know where the ps3 is goin' (2 the top like his old brothers did) and as I told u devs want money, who gives a damn what the game did look like in the first xbox, it didnt sell and the ps2 version trampled on it.. and thats what devs want more money and more fame and etc. as mather of fact the PS2 version trampled on the 360 version too, hahahaha, that sh1t is actually funny, hahahaha, PS2?? hahahaha?? 360 is gettin slapped by the PS2, what about when the ps3 establishes it self well, guese we wont see niether ms or the xpired box anymore..
Have no idea what you're talking about and i probably don't want to know, i just dont want green games on the 360 like MGS4, Lair ect.
That color isn't right bro you guy's can dissagree 1000 times, PS3 games still look like sh*t.
doesn't mean there won't be a 360 version.EA will make sure of that.each dev is going to have their own preference of what they like.ps3 or 360.from the pictures,the crashes alone should be impressive.
i see rabid fanboys taking this article as an attack on microsoft.so sad people.so sad....
these devs would rather work on the ps3 version than the 360 they prolly regret doin a deal with ms and they wont do it again, ya just gotta accapte it that the ps3 is gettin love from devs u f*ckin retards..
this game really that important in the grand scheme of things. Schizophrenia.
its not that its important I never bouth a burnout game and will never do that either, the things is that these kids hungs up on everything, the dev said their self that they wanna focus more on the ps3 cus they're fans of sonys consoles, and then u see these freaks start talkin sh1t like its my fault that I posted news or sonys fault for makin that console.. I mean somebody has 2 make them shut the hell up..
doing a good job... I have yet to figure out what the hell you're saying. You're almost as bad as videl.
unleash the Hammer of Dawn on 'um, that'll make 'um shut up.
it looks/plays EXACTLY the same on the 360.....but with better online, and faster framerate. Criterion has made basically 2 games: Burnout (and 3 rehashes/sequels), and BLACK (which sucked ass, and largely because of the PS2's inferior hardware).
Black is one of the most impressive shooters in recent memory, and the PS2 version performs and looks identical to its Xbox counterpart. Call the PS2 inferior all you want, 'cause it has a ton of games that absolutely spanked the other consoles.
And I don't know why you're claiming the 360 version of Burnout 5 is going to perform better. All the evidence points to PS3 having superior performance. The online section is up for debate though since we don't have any details.
you're so rabid.burnout 3 and 4 were cool.black i'll admit was over hyped.because game editors that saw it behind closed doors were saying it was this awsome game.but it was just okay.criterion's game was getting more popular than need for speed.so EA had to buy them.and to get renderware.but they do try to push hardware.that's why i like them.even if they are under EA's roof.
I agree with you 100%. Don't worry about little old DJ and Shadowgamer. Those guys are in complete denial. Its funny how Shadow wants to call everyone rabbid now. He has major issues. ha ha ha ha ha ha.... And as far as their claims about Black and so on. Heck naw...There wasn't ONE ps2 game that compared well to the xbox versions. From textures, lighting, effects, framerates, and load times. The xbox kicked the ps2's but on every game and in every area. Thats how you know some rabbid sony fans are hopeless. If they believe that the ps2 ever kept up with the xbox....they will continue to dillued themself that the ps3 can keep up with the 360. It simply doesn't. Reviews tell the story...head to heads tell the story...but kickings at award shows tell the story, and televised head to head comparissons tell the story...And the story is clear. The 360 out performs the ps3 in every area just like the xbox did. But the main difference is this time the 360 is spanking the sony next gen system in sales as well. While sony fans continue to make excuses and call timeout. Naw, ain't no time out. After this Christmas is over....The next gen console war will be over as well. The first console to 10 million sold ALWAYS wins. Respect History sony fans. And please...Get over it. You guys are looking pathetic now. ha ha ha ha ha
The console war is not over yet. I agree Sony is definatly going to struggle with catching up, but it`s still possible they can make it. We`ll see who can sell the moast when Sony has enough units out there and 4-5 more years has passed.
Let`s wait until more games on final def kits come out before we determine which system has the best graphics. Moast developers, with some exceptions like this, consider the two systems almoast identical performancewise, but 360 as easier to develop for. But it`s to early to tell which system has the best grapichs. That too, will become clearer during the coming years, and developers knows the systems better.
What matters is which console has the best games, not the best grapichs. That, has history thought us. And you don`t have to list every exclusive the 360 has now, i know they got some great games incoming ;) All I`m saying is that`s it`s to early to say which will win in both aspects
Yeah well who cares cause Burnout games are crap anyway.
its not a sony exclusive anymore. i wonder why, probably cause the 360 has a more installed base. and where is the wii version?
That both games are going to suck no matter what system. Only because it is getting made on the pS3 first. What a waste.
You know what, the PS2 didn't have a GPU, and even then Burnout Revenge on PS2 looked just like the Xbox version, played a little faster and it ROCKED!!! They've always made Bornout for Playstaion system first and are great successes. This time again, BO5 is going to be much better than 360 for this time PS3 has a GPU as well, and when Criterion could make BO-Revenge as great on PS2 and is bringing BO-Dominator which is going to be even better than revenge and exclusive to PS2 and PSP...then PS3 owners are going to get a real treat from the devs. Great work folks !
where did the graphics come from? did the ps2 come with a little man that sits inside your tv with an etch-a-sketch and draw out the games as you played? was it like the bulge in ron burgundy's pants...an optical illusion?
At least you see this is a major problem, do folks really want honey coloured games with less detail faded washed out depth.
Mercenaries 2 for PS3 is one other example.
that's how rabid you are.i commented on burnout.you brought in 360 as if that was the topic.you need a rabies shot.i didn't say one was going to be better than the other.
you say the xbox kicked the ps2's butt.then why did one system sell 110 plus million systems and one died an early death at 24 million?but it came out one year after ps2 and is still bleeding money?why is one system still getting the best games while the other is getting nothing?
make sure you get that shot.you need it.
I'm really looking foward to part 5. I will say the past verisons did look better on the xbox than PS3.
On the developers side, I don't think porting to the 360 will be a problem. Every other developer has prasied the ease of developement and supprt from Microsoft. Since the PS3 isn't more pwerful than the 360, they can get the hard part over with, and port it over. I jsut hope this process doesn't limit the game overall.
And DJ, there is NO evidence either version being superior, as nobody has seem anything aside from a few screenshots jazzed up for magazines.
I don't see how this open world GTA style is going to work with this type of game. If they fail to implement this properly, bith systems will have new coaster. It doen't matter how pretyy the game and crashes are. athe hole fun of the series was arcade style smash-em-up racing and specific crash junctions. I think they might fudge this one up....
ps3 can handle thousand times more polygons than the 360,so its a fact that the ps3 version is gonna be better by miles, the 360 is built to handle only high resolution textures and thats a shame...
did your Playstation Monthly tell you that?
A CPU arguement is valid, as there are many factors to consider.
A GPU arguement is not. This is one area where the 360 hands down wins.
Thats what happens when you slap in a desktop GPU from a few years ago.
A couple of years ago? Then why did the PS3 beta kits(the ones with 2.4Ghz Cell chips) have 7800 GTXs hooked up to them? BTW, the RSX has a few features that even ATI can't match up to, like 128-bit HDR rendering. It was co-developed between nVidia and ILM, so ATI's behind in that department.
I could go into specs, but when first-gen PS3 titles end up matching and/or surpassing second-gen 360 titles, it's understandable why many of you would want to sink into denial. Come on, even ATI admitted that nVidia produced a more powerful GPU than they did. That's what happens when you split your resources to accomodate two consoles instead of one.
he could clean my bathtub with it.but since it is already clean,and my kitchen floor,how about letting me bottle it so i can use it to put out fires with.i think australia needs it.so you keep foaming.maybe it will put out the flame wars and save people's lives there.
gta4 should be great on both systems.you're so rabid it's funny.
put so much effort into the ps3 veresion only to find u still wont get quite as good results if they work equally hard on the 360 version. wat a waste...all that effort for nothing...
but since wen was "effort" one of EA's mottos?
128-bit HDR is false. The RSX is a modefied 7800 GTX, which launched in mid 2005. It utilizes the NA032 format, a hacked version of HDR similar to what valve does to allow HDR+AA so it takes far more resources to make it happen than it would be to incorporate true HDR on the 360's GPU or any other gpu for that matter. It hurts the RSX as far as power for other things goes with such a method.
This adds drwawbacks as well. GPUs usually support hardware blending in RGB color spaces, hence hardware assisted blending is not going to work on a NAO32 frame buffer - it would produce incorrect results
Xenos uses 32 bit HDR, but what you don't realize the efficiency of the xenos design. This is why the games can use full HDR and AA at the same time. Just look at the lauch title PGR3 as a perfect example. For a PS3 example look at TH8. Sloppy overbtight HDR at a cost of texture resolution.
As for other featues ATI can't match, well they can't match to pipeline idle times due to inefficient design.
And I have never read anything that states "ATI admitted that nVidia produced a more powerful GPU than they did."
That's a nice piece of BS you made up.
