Powerful Sony Middleware Dev Working on Xbox 360 Engine

Split-screen: "A little over two years ago, JGI Entertainment/Kung-Fu Factory co-founder and President Daryl Pitts clarified his company's emphasis on Sony consoles. 'Our company focuses on whichever platforms we feel are best for our products. The PS2 still has the largest home console user base, and it's not necessarily wise to abandon this platform just yet.'

"Many developers followed this philosophy for success when they signed on for several of their games to be PS3 exclusives. Kung-Fu Factory was one of them. It created a 'state-of-the-art rendering engine that enables massive number of hi-res characters and is optimized specifically for the Sony Playstation 3 console'. As with all devs, however, even a predominantly Sony-experienced one like KFF is branching out."

From http://www.kungfufactory.co...

"You may not know us personally but you HAVE seen our work.

"The collected talent at KFF is unrivaled. We come from the highest of high-profile game and film studios including Rockstar, EA, Activison, SOE, Disney, THQ, Radical, Treyarch, Ritual and Sony Imageworks. We bring with us experience from best-selling franchises such as The Warriors, Bully, Jackie Chan, SSX, FIFA, NHL, WCW, Knockout Kings, Tomb Raider, EverQuest, The Lord of the Rings and Dead Space."

That doesn't include work done on Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, Daxter and Maximo. They're also a relatively new start-up who's helped other devs with their games. And judging by their experience, they've helped plenty of people with the tech developed for the PS3.

All I see is a independent dev working independently(how weird that sound?)but the tone of the article is "Sony lose another exclusive dev"

Make a game to speak for itself first...

Godmars2902962d ago

Not only that, but titles that have already gone multiplatform.

Heck, isn't Bully a 360 only title?

Elven62962d ago (Edited 2962d ago )

Even if they are the "outsource" people I still don't doubt they have talent under them. That being said, were they ever truly "exclusive"?

I don't know if I'd call them "powerful". They may have a lot of experienced staff under their wings, but as a new startup, their effect on the industry is going to be fairly minimal until they make a name for themselves.

Foxgod2962d ago

Hopefully they will make name, the more the merrier.

sarshelyam2962d ago

The company doesn't make the games, they make the tools that make games great. It really doesn't matter where they go but what they do with the partners they choose. They'll work their craft and help the development community get the most out of wherever they put their resources.

cmrbe2962d ago

and since when did Sony own this company?.

Santa Monica have always been Sony's main middleware devs. Together with other Sony 1st and second parties they form Sony's ICE team.

xlx-russ_922962d ago

the title is so misleading.

AhemZasan2962d ago

The company's website states that the tech they've been working on has been specifically focused on the PS3. The news value here is that they've supposedly decided to branch out and apply that tech to the 360. Of course this would probably seem more news worthy if we had some specific games to reference for examples of their tech in action.

krakdol2962d ago
