LucasArts: We weren't 'up to speed' on PS3

LucasArts has admitted that its development team wasn't quite "up to speed" on PS3 in the past - particularly when creating the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

or having fun games *gets flame shield*

It was fun. Even the PS3 version was fun... far as I saw it was exactly the same, but with longer load times.

kasasensei2810d ago

And a not-so-solid framerate.

But i enjoyed it like hell! <3

Akagi2810d ago

It was a great game, absolutely played the hell outta of it.

I think the longer load times were not because blu ray reads slower, but the way in which the game loaded...
To be fair, the PS3 programming language was new, and many people in the industry were not used to it.
Once more developers get better at coding for it, we will see better results.
We have seen some great games already, but the ps3 has more to come.

ChronoJoe2810d ago

Yeah it was just built badly, you can tell when the game has a loading period just when you press start. It was exactly the same situation as Bayonettas. I believe it fully installed itself too, so it definitely wasn't because of Blurays read times.

I have to say I didn't notice the inferior framerates. Seemed to run on a steady 30 to me.

The Force Unleashed 2 is better on PS3 according to Digital Foundry.

"According to his figures, The Force Unleashed II's motion blur eats up 2.2ms of resources on Xbox 360 (give or take 0.4ms), while the five-SPU-powered PS3 version is much faster at 1.4ms (give or take 0.5ms). Compare this with the frame-rate upscaler, which runs at 1.5ms on 360, and 1.4ms on PS3 (again parallelised over five SPUs)."

just the way things are. But you may lose a bubble on this subject because people know its just the devs not fully understanding the ps3 architecture.

Developers half-assing on PS3 is not a good excuse anymore (im looking at you 2k >:(

Sure people were a bit unfaimilar with the tech at the beginning, but c'mon, even Gabe has had a change in heart.

It's only taken an almost complete console cycle. Hell i think the original xbox was dead by now.

aaron58292810d ago

performance not on par with the other console..

no buy.

Obvious is troll is obvious.

edhe2810d ago

Actually, obvious idiot is obvious idiot.

What he was saying is that if it's not up to par on his console he won't buy it for that console.

CimmerianDrake2810d ago

I think you're right. I was being an idiot with that post. I apologize sincerely. Guess I misunderstood what he was saying. My bad.

Nihilism2810d ago

They aren't up to speed on gaming in general, their games have sucked for years. Expect even less games as they milk SW TOR for all it's worth.

"it takes a $4000 to play TFO"....look how that turned out. Terrible graphics, locked at 30 frames, you could run it on a toaster.
