MotorStorm: Pacific Rift's lead designer Nigel Kershaw has lashed out at those who criticise the use of pre-rendered videos in game presentations.
The original MotorStorm came under HEAVY fire in the early days of PS3, after it was revealed that the clearly stunning unveiling video (compared to real gameplay video) wasn't real game footage, but a CGI 'target video'.
But Kershaw says it's blown out of proportion. "We always do a render. Before you do a game, you do a test render that says, 'This is the game we want to make, now let's go make it.' It's just like writing a game design document," he said.
