PS3 Is Lead Console At EA's E3 Conference

During all of EA's multiplatform game demoes, the PS3 was the lead platform except for Crysis 2. Need For Speed, Medal of Honor and Dead Space 2 were all being played on the PS3.

The story is too old to be commented.

My friend had the nerve to call me and tell me this like it matters at all.

I can see a lot of butthurt babies reporting this for no good reason. For that, I will approve.

BeOneWithTheGun2624d ago

And those are the same babies that, a couple years ago, were screaming, "HAHA THE PS3 IS DOOOOOMED!"

How does that crow taste amigos?

deadpoole2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

the thing I hate about Activision/Treyarch is that there loyalty to xbox 360 and $$$ expensive dlc packs till 2012 for Call of Duty franchise is definately gonna alienate gamers and thats the reason
EA games such as Medal of Honor, BFBC series are gonna outshine these aholes cuz

1. First they give tons of stuff for free and care about players.
2. Best Dynamic Sound Effects ever.
3. Beautifull maps.
4. They don't act like dicks (Activision).

I've seen MOH and instead of buyin COD:Black Ops, Im gonna buy something different of the same (Medal of Honor) ... at least I wont be noobtubed like you do in COD with killing streaks.

They're showing their multiplats on the PS3. You know what that means.

sikbeta2624d ago

I know HolyOrange and it was a matter of time....

I noticed that, too. But does it really matter that much? They're MULTIPLATS. They were going to show the same game, either way.

ChronoJoe2624d ago

Means there probably dev leading on 360, means they will get ports to 360. Means the 360 versions will be most probably of lesser quality.

BeOneWithTheGun2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

It's the principle of the matter. People keep saying how PS3 owners do nothing but talk crap on N4G but there is a reason. The bots were cruel, ignorant and short sighted for a few years...eating bubbles just to be pricks, trash talking, etc.

Now, one of the biggest publishers in gaming history has dropped the 360 for the PS3 to use during E fricking 3. That makes all of us PS3 owners who have had to endure endless amounts of bullying feel pretty damn good.

How would you know? You're profile history says you joined this site yesterday.

Oh, I get it. You're just another fanboy who created a new account so you can go on bitching and no matter how much you get bubbled down you can keep spreading garbage.

You're a hypocrite, you know that? You troll around looking for sympathy from PS3 fanboys even though you're just as annoying as the 360 fanboys you're constantly bitching about?

What are your other accounts? El Botto? NelsonM? Saaking?

It's so easy to be anonymous on the net but that will not change the fact that behind all these different profiles you're just a dickwad with a keyboard and too much time.

TheDeadMetalhead2624d ago

Come on, guys. What's more important: The awesome games they were showing, or what console they were playing them on? Personally I was too busy watching the Medal of Honor multiplayer demo and the awesome wheel scene in Bullet Storm to really care. I guess that kind of stuff just doesn't bother me anymore. :/

MRMagoo1232624d ago

I was on this site when it was dominated by 360 fangirls too it sucked but they get what they give now so it will all even out.

Generally EA likes to gravitate more towards the PS3 with certain things like they allowed PS3 to be the lead console for Dante's Inferno. They probably use the PS3 more or find it more reliable, idk.

duplissi2624d ago

ill tell you why.

the ps3 brings in more revenue for EA than the 360 does.

AK462624d ago

@ duplissi

That's what you call investing into the future, by EA. With that extra profit, they seem willing to spend some money on learning the tech behind the PS3, and what Publisher wouldn't want too is anyone guess. Smart move EA, because the PS3 is going to last a very long time.

SaberEdge2624d ago

Well, Dead Space supposedly had its development lead on the PS3 too, but it still ended up performing better on the 360, so I don't know what the significance of this is.

Christopher2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

Honestly, if they lead on PS3 and the game looked as good as it did on the PS3, I'm very happy with the result. The game looks and plays beautifully on my PS3 and what I saw today looked even better. Happy camper, even if the 360 somehow is a lot better.

morkendo2624d ago

c'mon guys u gotta give me agrees on CRITERIONS freakin awesome need for speed hotpursuit.

raztad2624d ago

It was very nice to see 24 DS3s in a deathmatch. Yeah, the dark side is strong in EA.

gta28002624d ago

Superior PS3 versions confirmed.

dizzleK2624d ago

expect to see this more and more.

as a serious game platform the 360 is dead. maybe now they'll stop gimping the ps3 versions.

saint_john_paul_ii2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

reason why Crysis 2 was not shown on PS3 is simple.

last week, or the week before, there was an article where the devs stated they were only showing 360 footage just to prove a point that the game will look good even on the weakest of consoles.

the game still leads on PC.

Christopher2624d ago

That and their recent exclusive game development agreement with Microsoft...

karl2624d ago

but since now they have a deal for an exclusive games with MS
it makes me doubt if crytek hasnt take money from MS to make crysis look the same or better on xbox..

TheDeadMetalhead2624d ago

"last week, or the week before, there was an article where the devs stated they were only showing 360 footage just to prove a point that the game will look good even on the weakest of consoles."

Am I the only one that finds that absolutely hilarious?

CimmerianDrake2624d ago

What do you find hilarious? Is it that Pope believes that Crytek would do that just to prove a point? Or is it that part where "the game will look good even on the weakest consoles"? Because that part is true, the 360 is the weaker of the two consoles. But the other part, I'm not really sure about so I can't comment on it.

RageAgainstTheMShine2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

More PS3 turn around stories to come after E3, assured!

saint_john_paul_ii2624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

well, you have to realize, back in 2007 EA did a bad job in PS3 development. so to see this, its breathes a sigh of happiness to see that they are on the right track again.

deadreckoning6662624d ago (Edited 2624d ago )

Pandamobile, this is really great news. The PS3 is a more powerful console than the 360. Obviously leading on the PS3 will be a great benefit to PS3 owners.

testerg352624d ago

Right... now multiplatforms are cool again? If the 360 version is the "superior" version, will you start doing the "the dev sucks", "they lied and the 360 was the lead", "its a multiplatform who cares" quotes again?

iceman062624d ago

I can't speak for everybody else. But, for me, multiplatform titles with the PS3 as the lead console is cool. Why? Because at least the devs will START with the correct code for the infrastructure of the PS3. No porting of 360 code to the PS3 and a decent allotment of time to maximize said code. Now, if perhaps, the game still sucks at least we know it was a development problem and not the fact that they just ran out of time to do a proper port. I don't care about "superiority", I just want a game that has been given equal care and attention to detail.
