Wow another dev kicking the PS3 and loving the 360

Well Sony fanboys are you going to twist and say again that it's all a big lie???

And believe me, Mercenaries 2 is coming to the 360 for sure. Done deal

Captain Tuttle3872d ago

That's quite the spin, Mart. I didn't read the interview as bashing the PS3 or Sony at all. Just a little challenging at first to program for.

Antan3872d ago (Edited 3872d ago )

To be fair Mart, i read the headline in the same way! lol, but once i read the article it becomes obvious! quite a lot of love for both machines and nice to know they have other stuff in the pipeline. Mercs 2 does look interesting though.

EDIT-: oh look, im now in the 4 bubbles crew! anyone wanna join my gang?

Look at little Mart misquoting people. Quit being such an Xbot tool and remove your head from your arse. I

That is a complete miss quotation! OMG you guys are amazing. He said that the Sony guys are amazing and that the ps3 was a huge challenge to work on. They said, don't count out Sony because they aren't going anyway - as in THEY ARE HERE TO STAY. Not that Sony's stuck in the ditch. You guys are incredible.

TheMART3872d ago

Wouldn't they say anything else having to sell some Mercenaries 2 copies on the PS3 at last???

techie3872d ago

Of course not. But is there a need to spin what they were saying? Would they say something bad about the xbox360 if they are building up a strong relationship with them to create games for them? It's strange that you see it as a positive for Microsoft, but a failing for Sony when a dev says something good about both of them. Rose-tinted glasses much?

Violater3872d ago

Mart your a moron. Read the whole article.

Runnin n Gunnin3872d ago

This headline is BS. I took it out of context also but unlike a few, actually read it and Resnick actually likes the Xbox 360, and supports the PS3 and Sony. So before everyone starts bashing sony, read the article first ;-).

"We made that decision a long time ago and we … think we’re known for pushing the limits of innovative gameplay, mixing genres, and kind of having a fun sensibility of kind of irreverence that’s built into our games.

But another thing we’re known for is kind of eking out the firepower of the systems. On the PS2 we really got deep into that system and really made some great games on the PS2 that really stood out visually in terms of what we were able to push. With PS3, we looked at it and said we really think that’s going to be the biggest challenge for us, it’s going to be the hardest nut to crack. We wanted to power through that first and foremost. And Sony was really cool, got us systems early on and we spent a lot of time powering through that and we wanted to be able to really establish ourselves there and then look at other systems and stuff if that makes sense, but that’s where we started.

So the choice was simply because the PS3 was the biggest challenge?

Yeah, we wanted the biggest challenge. Sony’s always been a great partner for us, and you should never count Sony out just [because of] all the talk about all the missteps Sony has made. Hey, Sony’s not going anywhere. It’s one of the biggest brands out there and to Phil Harrison’s point in his speech at D.I.C.E., it’s like, “Look guys, we’re coming out a little bit later than the other systems, we’re having a little bit slower start, but believe me we’re going to be there in force.”

We know Sony’s going to be there in force, we’re not coming out until the second half of ’07, so do I want Sony to have a ton of platforms out there so that we can get Mercs out there to as many homes as possible? Absolutely. I want them to succeed. I’m a big fan of the 360, big fan of the Wii, big fan of some of the [older] platforms, we just saw the Sony system as the biggest challenge and we wanted to kind of jump in and tackle that first."
