Former Harmonix dev. bashes PS3

"I read various game forums from time to time, and often see gamers complaining about 'lazy ports' to the ps3. They often mention how the ps3 is the most powerful game console and blame developers working on the console for doing a bad job. Sony has all of these people duped by impressive marketing spin, and I'm often amazed at how potent this type of rhetoric proves to be. For those unaware, I'm going to break it down simply and explain exactly why ports to the ps3 will never be as good as their 360 counter parts, and why most ps3 exclusives will likely continue to suck."

LOL re: the pic
He needs the light to hide his true troll self. When I say 'troll' I mean literal (like Shrek) troll.

The guy just got fired from Harmonix so he's definitely in a self-destructive mood. Xbox 360 and the Wii will probably be next on his hit list. That girl in the pic better watch her back when sh's in the same room as him.

its official: Nasim is getting paid by Sony.
It was just a hunch at first, but as much as this guy stays on this site stating how great the PS3 is and is doing, their can be no other explaination. He posts constantly for like 8-10 hours a day, so either he goes to work and then comes home and spends 8-10 hours praising the PS3 on the internet instead of actually playing it, or the 8-10 hours on the internet praising it IS HIS JOB.

Anyone else feel this way? No one else on this website spends half as much energy as he does promoting the PS3 and bashing the 360.

gameR4fun = Most ignorant fanboy
Normally this is where I post something that makes me lose my bubbles (or lack of). For the first time I am putting up a serious post.

"wow this guy is being paid for this dont believe a word."

This is one of the most ignorant comments I have seen. The blog post is 100% correct. I am a programmer and I have done game programming before (nothing 3D but the underlying concepts are close to the same)

EDIT: I see 3 disagrees already and no replies. You PS3 turds are a bunch of idiots.

Not one thing he mentioned is false. I would like you to reply with some insight on how these comments are made-up. Game programming is all about "state"

You cannot determine the state of something if it is split across multiple processors. The problem is that you get "dirty reads" that are stored into the cache....meaning....that when you have a program that needs to know the exact state, it has to pass through one central point.....ONE CORE.

This is why we have servers. Servers act as a single entry point TO PRESERVE STATE. Since games need to stay in sync, the majority of the functions need to rely on ONE CORE. Hence why most of the SPUs aren't being used and as far as I can see they won't be able to find a use for them (outside of audio and simple tasks)

All of his points are valid and exactly why the PS3 is not doing well. It has an excellent source of power but not all of that power fits into game development.

Now with that being said. You start to see why the PS3 is getting crap ports. You have to alter your code outside the norm. This is time consuming and it will cause companies to lose interest (especially when sales are not as good as others). I feel that the AAA games to come to the PS3 are going to be exclusives. This is the only way developers are going to have the time and efforts to write code specifically for the PS3 architecture.

If you want to hit that disagree button, at least reply with a reason. Disagreeing without a reason just shows that you are a ignorant fanboy.
Give me some credit...I finally posted a REAL comment.

stop making an a ** of yourselfs
this is what gets me from fanboys from both sides.when a sales report comes out that 1 outsold the other,they are wrong if the system they have didn't sell more then the other,like they know how many units sold and the people that keep up with sales figure don't.these post are the same way,they have a man here who know about the systems because he's a delveloper but people act like they still know more then him because he said things that's against their system,but he's not the only developer that said the same thing,i read a few articles where the developer said that the ps3 isn't more powerful then the 360 because of the way it's made.but still they have fanboys saying that they don't know what they are talking about well if they are right and he's wrong then why is it that
1st- the majarity of games that's on both system looks better on the 360
2nd-developers said that it's difficulity to program for because of the way it's made.
3rd-games for the ps3 is always postspone because they are having problems developeing them.

i'm not saying that the 360 is more powerful then the ps3 because it'isn't but the ps3 is more powerful then the 360.so instead of being stupid fanboys fighting over a kids game system like a bunch of 9 year olds on a school playground, they need to stop being bias and fact the facts,if you want to play all the good games you will need both systems and that's a fact i don't care what kind of spin you put on it and till the sony fans have proof that the ps3 is more powerful they need to face the fact and the same for the 360 fans.
so instead of making an a** of themselfs they need to just enjoy their game no matter what system they have and stop acting like they will get a % of the sells because they want receice a damn dime as a matter of fact micro and sony doesn't give a sh*t about them,so they need to stop acting an ass and just enjoy their games and act like a grownup instead of their shoesize.

@Eagle-eyes
Oh, so when it is someone posting a blog about how the Xbox 360 is inferior. Or that the Wii is underperforming, it becomes bashing?

This is probably on the better end of some of the blogs posted on N4G. This is an actual game developer who has dealt with the PS3 and is voicing his disdain for it while providing local and coherent arguements much better than the typical "PS3 4 14|=3!" or "PS3 has no RROD" or my personal favorite "We have Lair (control problems), Folklore (just a generally lack-luster game compared to the "excitement" people were for it), Ratchet & Clank (which is a great game), Uncharted (who knows), UT3 (which is multiplatform anyways), Jericho (was on alot of peoples lists for a while until reviews started leaking), Eye of Judgement (which is way too expensive in my opinion but a neat toy none-the-less), etc etc etc."

I'm tired of Xbox 360 fanboys boasting the numbers of sales and how the PS3 is getting stomped into the ground.
I am equally (if not more) getting tired with the Playstation 3 fanboys telling me their system is not underperforming and then spit out a list of games that have been announced from here until the next holiday season (and 3/4ths of those games, I bet, will perform below expectations).

wow this guy is being paid for this dont believe a word.
hazeblaze  +   2451d ago
I very highly doubt he's being paid but he does seem to have his own agenda. For one, if we hadn't already seen games that look much more impressive on the PS3... such as Uncharted, MGS4, & GT5... then I could buy his story on the PS3 not truly being more powerful.

But the other thing is that there have been too many other devs stating that there is a lot of untapped power in the PS3 that gamers will really begin to see in the next few years, most notably is Mark Reins from Epic. And his word is a lot more credible to me than this guys.

The one thing I do agree with though... b/c of the additional coding and dev costs, most of the power we see for a while is going to come from the 1st party devs & 3rd party exclusives.

drewdrakes  +   2451d ago
Actually most of the comments were stupid and uninformed. One guy said that blu-ray reads just as fast as DVD, not true AT ALL from the speeds ive seen in the specs. Also some guy brought up Halo 3's 640p resolution...but failed to mention that it renders 2 frames at 640p each time, making it render the equivalent of 1.5 720p frames per frame.
Bleyd  +   2451d ago
About read speeds
The average read speed from a SL DVD is slightly faster than the read speed of a Blu-Ray disk. The average read speed of a DL DVD is slightly slower than the read speed of a Blu-Ray disk. The issue at hand is that most xbox 360 games require a DL DVD in order to have room for everything.

I'm sorry if you believe that rendering 640p twice is the same as 1.5 times the resolution of 720P. That's just wrong. You really should do your homework before you start posting things like this.

There has been a post about reading speed on BR and DVD if you follow the news from about 5-6 months ago, you will know that dual layers DVD actually run at relatively same, if not, slower than dual or single layers BR.
If you are arguing that single layer DVD reading speed is faster then I wouldnt disagree but note that no game in this generation use single layer DVD.

Haha that post was very ironic...well done. Did you know Killzone 2 multi-renders 4 times the 720p...meaning by your reckonings, it would be 2880p! Deary me.
drewdrakes  +   2451d ago
Actually I didnt say it was better then 720p I said it renders as many pixels as a 720p frame multiplied by 1.5. And the guy who said the thing about killzone, that would be inaccurate. It would be that in one dimension, but because all you did was multiply by 4, it would no longer be widescreen. The width and height would be drastically different then 16:9. It would be 1440p if thats what you were looking for...

The fact that this all came from a guy that worked for Harmonix only makes it funnier, even their next gen games look like their PS2 counterparts.
sak500  +   2451d ago
@scottie:

If 360 devs use same textures as p3 uses of ps2 then most games would end up @ 1080p @ 60fps. BUt the high rez textures and normal mapping on most objects in games like H3 takes most of the bandwith. Any game out there on ps3 which has bumped/normal mapped textures other than MS?

yeah, i know i'm going to get knocked down for this, but i believe what he says. he has worked on both platforms and has written a blog detailing what he believes to be true about the development for ps3 games. with so many ports being inferior on ps3 compared to it's counter-part, how can any reasonable person believe that these aren't very real possibilities as to why? he obviously has technical knowledge of programming and developing on the ps3 and the 360. i own a ps3 and only a few games because in all honesty i find the games on the ps3 to be less quality then the 360 by a mile. that may change next year but with the exception of littlebigplanet, there are no games that i absolutely feel i must have. of course i'll get mgs4 and ffXIII and others, but i also know as soon as i have gotten through those games i will be back on my 360.

Nice post. It's nice to see that people are actually agreeing with a real game developer rather than all these people posting that pretend they know what they're talking about. Sony fanboys always say that it's not hard to develop for the ps3, but I say, So I guess your a game developer for the ps3 then if you know that.

bubbles for you
I cant agree more. It boggles the mind that the members of this forum run off at the mouth like they do.

My programming skills are mediocre (at best) compared to someone who does game programming for a living. But I know enough to understand what this man is talking about. But when I read the responses here in this forum.

"hes stupid", "he's lazy", "he doesnt know what he's talking about", "I heard Z,Y,X".

It boggles the mind that what are clearly highschool (and younger) children can possibly be so arrogant and flippant. I know this is just the interweb, but the level of wholesale stupidity on this forum is like I've never encountered before.

Perhaps the SDF on N4G might like to read and contemplate what this developer is trying to tell you, instead of assaulting him.

Anyone even pretending to pay mild attention to the technical merits of videogame consoles would know that this isnt a new or unique opinion at all. The legions of game Developers are all saying much the same.

But, apparently, the 15 year olds on this forum know better than the collective opinion of the industry's game development professionals.

Please read:
Please read...
From a poster on that site:

"Getting data off the blue ray drive takes about twice as long as it does to get the same data off the 360's DVD drive."

Afaik the average speed on SL DVD´s is more or less the same as Blu-Ray. On dual layer DVD´s Blu-Ray has a slight advantage.

"Basically, they take the data they would normally send to the graphics chip, send it to an SPU which optimizes it in some manner, then send it to the graphics chip."

They take advantage of the Cell CPU, this is a good thing not a badt thing.

"The code needed to make the PS3 work is most likely only useful to you on the PS3, as the types of tricks you need to do to make the thing perform are very unique to the platform and unlikely to be useful on any other architecture now or in the future."

Yes and No, if you "thread" carefully you will gain speed on the 3 core cpu in the 360.

"but thats unlikely to be realized in any useful way".

Drakes fortune and Rachet and Clank takes up way more space than the 7GB you can store on a 360 DVD.
Maybe you shouldn´t use a launch game as evidence :-)

"The fill rate on the PS3 is significantly slower than on the 360"
If you want to take advantage of the "fill rate" on the 360 you have to reduce the resolution on your games. Hello Halo 3, hello Grand Turismo HD 4 real :-)

And about the author of this blog post:

Playstation Home will compete directly with his new company, so the PS3 is his enemy at the moment. With this as the backdrop, it's hard to lend any credence to his technical arguments.

If your wondering about what this blog author is up to: http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

so its for hisbenefit to discorage developers away from sony's console.

take this and any article bashing the tech of any next gen system with a grain of salt...
wageslave  +   2451d ago
I cant believe im responding to you....
I wont bother to address any of your baseless assertions. You're clearly uninformed.

But, I will stop for one bit.

you claim "this person is in direct competition with Sony's HOME, so he is unreliable"

This is what is called an argumentum ad hominem or "purely personal considerations". You cant dismiss him because of something that you presume motivates him to lie. You can't dismiss his argument *because* of your paranoid presumption.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

But what this author is saying is totally in-line with what everyone has been saying for many months. This article is saying that the PS3 is a terrible design and that the development tools are weak is 100% completely, exactly like what we've heard all along.

Does it really matter what your (presumed paranoid) motivations for this person are? What he is saying is exactly what has been said by people who couldnt possibly be accused of self-centered motivations.

Clearly your (paranoid presumed) motivations are irrelevant. Clear thinking is the key here.

If/when you get to University, you'll learn all about this kind of disciplined, logically concise thinking.

Until then, you'd be better off not writing 250 words of nonsense without a drop of reason on the interwebs.

Is truly an idiot, doesn't he realize that he just said that ports will almost always be bad on the PS3? Everyone already knew that, he just tried to put it into vague terms just to dish out some punches at an architecture that he doesn't fully understand.

He said that in order to utilize the power of the PS3 you'd have to be optimizing from the beginning (NOT PORTING) which is what everyone already knew.

This guy just went on and on about how the Playstation 3 can't efficiently run 360 code (NO KIDDING IT'S NOT A 360). Oh, and BTW, what kind of graphics has Harmonix dished out? Yea, I thought so.

This seems fishy. Then how come so many games on the ps3 run at 720,1080i, and 1080p, and most 360 games are lower than that. Look at halo 3. Plus Have they played ninja gaiden sigma or especially rachet and clank where there is almost 0 load times, from gameplay to cutscene and zero loud time from area to area. I remembering playing guitar hero on my ps2 and it still had load times. Its not like those games had great graphics to begin with.

sigh, by a mile eh? haha man some of you people. The games not made by EA normally do the same if not better, just look at GRAW 2 and oblivion. When you build it for the ps3 it runs better, if you just half ass port, it will rung like a half ass port.

Firs tof all this guy is a former Dev. He said that the ps3 is not more graphical then the xbox 360. I want the 360 to show me any game that looks better then racher and clank. There is no game that looks better then rachet and clnak on the xbox360. And i own both console so i know. All pse game run on a native of 720p but halo runs at 640p This guy doesnt know Crap. No wonder he got fired, the day he got fired was a victory for gamers.

someone will try and pull the "GEARS" card on you, to that respond..

Unreal Tournament III, Gears was just practice.

edit: hahaha i sooo called it.

oh so r&c got a 7.5 did it? Thats the same asshole who gave Bioshock a 9 for the 360 citing nonexistent frame rate issues, so don't be so quick to defend that Gamespot reviewer. And I run Bioshock at fully maxed settings on my PC (monster rig) and r&c still looks better, much different art style to be sure...but better? No.

edit 2: gear 2? ok lol. Killzone will be out by then. :)

Your post reeks of fanboy biased. No game on 360 looks better then R&C? How about Gears or Bioshock? I am enjoying R&C, but don't go saying it's the best looking game on any system. A game with the best looking graphics doesn't get a 7.5 rating.

Edit: Ok, out of all the "reviewers" I respect the highest was GamerInformer with a 9.3. It still didn't beat out Bioshock or Gears. Also, to respond to your Unreal III, I'll say Gears 2.

Edit: You honestly believe Killzone 2 will look better then Gears 2?

IMHO...
devs should optimize for ps3 first and then port to 360, because its easier to cut down codes and compress than to do the oposite. if 360 games came on hd-dvd, then the ports would be even. ps3 is a beast, and it takes real talent to make it sing. and this article is gonna turn into a fanboy war real quick. just wait.

I prefer...
That the 360 is a chick you meet at a college party and the PS3 is the girl you fall in love with. The 360 might put out now, but she'll just end up being another slut.

True,
but everyone knows sluts are a lot more fun.

Sluts may be fun, but there is a 33% chance of an STD.

PS3 exclusives do not suck??

Heavenly Sword is great, Resistance is great, Warhawk is great, R&C, GT5 are awesome (having played the demo).

This guys a strange one. We all know what the PS3 is capable of having watched the demos for games like MGS, LBP, KZ2.

I dont care which is system is more powerful. Theres plenty of good stuff on the PS3 to keep me happy.

I wish these silly devs would just shut the hell up and do their job!!

Heavenly Sword is 7.9 / 10
Resistance is 8.6 / 10
Warhawk is 8.4 / 10
R&C is 9.0 / 10
GT5 is not yet released.

Metacritic scores do not lie. Those 4 games are the *BEST* you have. You've just named every worthwhile PS3 game.

Well, after seeing Ratchet & Clank PS3, I call him a crazy idiot. If something like Ratchet TOD can be done in a console's first year, the future is more than bright.
