VG247: Platinum: PS3’s a “sports car,” 360’s a “car that everybody’s driving”

VG247 writes: "This won’t end well.

Platinum’s Atsushi Inaba, producer on speedy shooter Vanquish, has highlighted differences between PS3 and 360 “architecture,” saying the former has more grunt while the latter offers “more versatility”.

“The PS3 is kind of like a sports car that’s very high-performance and specific in its usage, whereas the 360 is more like a car that everybody’s driving,” said Inaba, speaking to VG247 at E3."

The story is too old to be commented.

That's interesting, I think...

Looking forward to Vanquish in the future.

From the article :

"“The PS3 is kind of like a sports car that’s very high-performance and specific in its usage, whereas the 360 is more like a car that everybody’s driving,” said Inaba, speaking to VG247 at E3.

“It doesn’t have the same range as a sports car, but it has more versatility.

”Vanquish impressed many at E3 with its sci-fi knee-sliding and sheer mentalness.

The game’s being developed on PS3 as a lead platform to avoid problems with porting.

The move comes after Platinum and Sega were heavily criticised for what was perceived to be a substandard PS3 version of Bayonetta.

“It’s about adapting your game to those two sorts of different frameworks,” Inaba added.

“That’s where we’re focusing. Fundamentally, the gameplay experience itself is the exact same game.”
Motomu Toriyama, the director of Final Fantasy XIII also have the similar statement I think.

If I recalled it correctly, he said that the PS3 provide much processing power but you must know how to use it.

If it is a sports car, I'll definitely handle it very well rather than my old car. :P

Japanese shooters don't always turn out as good as westerner.
But this one looks very promising

Vanquish made bayonetta right?


I'm not gonna edit it, shameful. Thanks though. Just got a little muddled.

Aggesan2944d ago

Platinum Games made Bayonetta, and now they're making Vanquish.

rockleex2944d ago

Considered to be one of the best shooters last gen.

sikbeta2944d ago

I have high hopes for Vanquish knowing that S.M. made one of My favorites Games = RE4 (I love the whole series) and I'm really glad to know the Lead Platform is the PS3, no-1 would stand another crap like with the Bayonetta Port...

PS3 success is comparable to successful luxury cars.

the rest are ordinary standard cars.

I guess it's ok to troll a system, as far as it's not the PS3.

wages of sin2944d ago

So yeah, as long as it's pro PS3, the mods don't give a flying f#@k what you say.

On topic:

This is good. If Vanquish (which I have my eye on) is being developed first on the harder system to work with, then ported, than we all win. The only question for me is, which version do I get? Hmmm...

Wrong PS3 is a FERRARI and 360 is a

raptorjacob2944d ago (Edited 2944d ago )

Thats not true. Toyota's have great reliability (overall, i know they had a gas pedal issue). They made one great sports car too. supra!

From what i read Ferraris are not reliable. not a good comparison.

a better comparison ps3 is like a Toyota Supra TT and 360 is like VW touareg.

Not trying to bash or anything just a better comparison.

oldskoolgamer2944d ago

thats not fair to toyota IMHO and toyota not only made the Supra TT but they make the LF-A also and thats no slouch

raptorjacob2944d ago


very true, i also like the sc400 and is300. The things people do with those cars are pretty amazing.

Similar to when Hideo Kojima described the PS3 as a cinema experience compared to 360 which was a home tv experience

raztad2944d ago (Edited 2944d ago )

and the Wii? I remember that awesome analogy. Interesting how another Japanese devel drew similar conclusions.


People need to realize this analogy is from a DEVELOPER point of view. It has nothing to do with prices or the way the consumer see the consoles themselves.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32944d ago

Please...this guy is trying to "save face" because of the Bayonetta results, lol. People should ask him why doesn't he make this a PS3 exclusive then.

raztad2944d ago


Bayonetta poor PS3 port (handled by SEGA) is the reason the PS3 is lead platform for Vanquish.

I think nobody is expecting a PS3 exclusive, although PS3 Bayonetta easily outsold the xbox version.

sikbeta2944d ago (Edited 2944d ago )

You know what is bad, S.M. always whined about the Power of the PS Consoles, saying he could do more stuff but he was limited and such blabbling, then he made the Capcom-5 Deal with Nintendo in order to expand himself and making more stuf he couldn't do on the PS2, Capcom-5 FAILED to a level in which only 4 of the 5 Games came out, seems like the Supporters were on the PS2, thanks to that he resign and Capcom Capcom got rid of Clover Studio, after that he went to create another Devolpment Studio (don't remeber now) and Finally he end up being part of Platinum Games, now that the PS3 is the Most Poweful console of this Gen, he couldn't handle it and made the worst port ever = Dantenetta, this time maybe he'll make a great job like he was crying for in the Days of the PS1 and PS2...


To be fair, 2 of the 4 games were successful to some extent: Viewtiful Joe and RE4 and The 2 Exclusive Resident Evil Games were successful, Remake sold Great, RE0 sold Great but less than the REmake, RE4 sold better than Both but the PS2 Version outsold the GC Version...

Rikitatsu2944d ago

Shinji Mikami did not have anything to do with Bayonetta, check your facts.

Bayonetta's team is busy with another project (Team little Angels)

The ones who are developing Vanquish are Shinji Mikami's team: Straight Story.

The ps3 isn't a sports care compared to the 360. Its more like Godzilla versus, I dont know, Elmo? I think thats a better metaphor to use.

Edit: Why the disagrees? Oh okay, I will rephrase myself. The ps3 is like a 600 hrz plasma as to where the 360 is 60 hrz LCD. Is that better?
