BioWare: Activision PS3 comment "silly"

Greg Zeschuk, co-founder of BioWare, has branded Activision's comments over ceasing support for PS3 "silly", acknowledging the importance of the PlayStation name.

"I don't think it's really fair to poke fun at Sony," Zeschuk told CVG. "Certainly the Wii's been a massive success and Sony's probably not going as fast as they thought it would be but I think that they're starting to make the right moves and the software's coming along.

I must say I'm kinda surprised to see Bioware defending Sony. I would have expected EA themselves to say this but not one of their devs (Especially one who used to make games exclusively for Xbox)

Bnet3433142d ago

So what exclusive is BioWare supporting Sony with? Devs like to talk alot but not show anything.

I said exclusive. BioWare can praise the PS3 all they want but until they show an exclusive game utilizing PS3's power, they are just doing this for PR. Remember how Valve bashed every console except Wii and said how Nintendo has the right idea. Do you see any Valve games on Wii? Nope. Just all talk.

Bioware defending PS3 good job. Everyone knows Bioware has a better game track record than activision.

Im just hoping for Mass Effect series on PS3, and please please please bring Star Wars The Old Republic to consoles.

Activision wasnt going to leave 12 mil in guitar hero and call of duty sales on the table. (and thats just 2 games)

That is a very good point and oh so true.

It's not the devs that are going around bashing consoles and spouting hate, it's the gamers.

So it's no surprise seeing them defend the PS3 seeing how it's an amazing machine along with the 360. Fanboy goggles are a funny thing.

Anyway it's good to see them coming to the PS3 to show us what they can do, exciting!

I know, right?

I find that pretty awesome though. :D

Bioware was never critical of the PS3 as far as i can remember. They only preferred to work on the x360 for ME to cater to the x360 strength which is what i wanted to see.

EPIC comes to mind with this news. Mark Rein was one of the most vocal PS3 supporter when everyone trashed it back in 2007.

The software's coming along? It's not selling as fast as they thought? Apparently it's selling faster than the 360 did in it's time... And the software's more than "coming along", it's not the slow kid in class, the software is the best out there, the exclusives speak for themselves.

BioWare is evil now I'm like these cats are alright :)

I'm surprised to hear it from Bioware, but it is absolutely true that Activision's comments were silly because they are going to be the ones hurting from their decisions. At one time Activision could stand toe to toe with EA, but the times sure have changed this generation with EA becoming a monster that may get big enough to absorb it's once competition and teach them how to run a business.

gintoki7773142d ago
