PS3 Lead Platform for Skate 2 Due to Criticisms

Black Box has confirmed that the PS3 will be the lead format for Skate 2, due to criticisms levelled at its predecessor.

Speaking to GAMER.tm recently, Black Box producer Jason DeLong confirmed that the PS3 version of Skate 2 would be the lead version of the game, after the PS3 version of Skate 1 was criticised for not being as good as its 360 counterpart.

The story is too old to be commented.

ITS BECAUSE THE 360 CAN DO ANYTHING THE PS3 CAN BUT NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND,SORRY DONT WANNA P!SS THESE CRY BABY OFF BUT ITS TRUE.

ShinMaster3635d ago

Are you sure that's just some wishful thinking in your part?

I think everyone already knows it's the other way around. Devs have said it.

demonddel3635d ago

JUST JOKING BRUH BUT JUST HATE WHEN THE 360 IS BASH ON THIS SITE WHEN I HAVE BOTH AND I KNOW WHICH ONE IS THE BEST AND PLUS THEY WHINE TO MUCH FOR ME

Skate 2 superior on ps3 like every other multiplatform game

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3636d ago

Microsoft exclusives worse than multiplatform games

bouncybullet3636d ago

Yes, especially the year-late version of Bioshock.

Superior crappiness.

gunnerheadboy3635d ago

Mirrors Edge has the PS3 as lead platform too :). Can't wait for that game!

The Dark Knight3636d ago

good, its about god damn time

FaSeCeX3636d ago

sh!t...i even play it to this day from time to time..if the 360 counterpart was really better (dont see how) then i almost envy them...haha almost but not really..im just glad it wasnt some fake @$$ tony hawk crap..almost inspired me to pick up skating again!! haha almost but not really ;)
im not sure what you could possibly fix from the 1st one by making the ps3 the lead format (graphics does not improve game play) but it does make me raise my expectations for the sequal

Once again EA makes the right decision. They have completely redeemed themselves in my opinion.

If it was really lead then they would use 50GB on the Blu-ray disc and leave the Xbox 360 version with 5 DVD9 disc to mess with.

BobDog3636d ago

@ above

well thats not very fair then is it lol

1 console gets a sub par game, thats not good for bussiness and makes the consumers who bought that lesser version weary of buying a game again off the same publisher

Thoas3636d ago

You want the best don't you?

@mikeslemonade
Compltely?

I Wouldent go that far, its only been a month since they pulled that DRM Crap, and there have made, oh so many mistakes in the last year =]

This wasnt the direct choice of EA, but of the developers.

Good choice neways =D

juuken3636d ago

EXACTLY.

About damn time indeed. Developers need to stop with the freakin' bad ports already.

SL1M DADDY3636d ago

This has proven in the past to produce two great versions of the game, both running great and looking better than if they chose to go with the 360 as lead. It is easier to port PS3 games to the 360 than to do it the other way around.

himdeel3636d ago

...it's a good investment to take this approach. The last thing any company wants to do is prematurely lower their sales by not putting the proper resources into a game to make it good. Just think of all the wasted money making a sub-par version of a game that no one wants to buy. They cannot keep games into everyones hands if they peddle crappy ports. Hope it turns out well for them but MORE importantly for US the consumers.

shovelbum3635d ago

Well finally fanboys will get their chance to backup all the crap that spews from their mouths. If this works well and the PS3 becomes the lead platform the great and if not then then whining can return. That being said, PS3 ports have been sadly underwhelming.

y0haN3635d ago

Not every PS3 game has to be 50GB. It's a limit not a recommendation.

First Burnout, then Mirrors Edge, and so on. EA will eventually have majority of their games lead platform on PS3, as it not only makes the PS3 version good but the 360 version as well.. others will follow as some already have begun. It's beneficial to all, no reason not to.

What I said would happen last year...

Bnet3433636d ago

It's fanboy food though. Now everyone thinks the Xbox 360 version will be inferior. I got Skate 1 for 360 so I guess I'll keep the series on 360 unless I hear the 360 version has framerate issues or stuff like that.

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3636d ago

@Kigmal

From your recent purchase of a Playstation 3 computer entertainment system,it looks like choice and other qualities of a true gamer have made you a smarter consumer.Congratulations

DiabloRising3636d ago

Kigmal... who cares what they THINK? Does it impact YOUR enjoyment of the game if both versions end up being the same, but someone THINKS the 360 version is slightly inferior?

mrkeith3636d ago

i cant wait for this game.
