Starhawk: 'PS3 Is Really The Only Console Out There That We Think Can Do This'

GB: "The PlayStation 3 will be completing half a decade this November and obviously some developers are already starting to claim that the current generation of gaming is aging very quickly, especially when compared to where PC gaming technology is heading.
But Senior Producer Harvard Bonin from Lightbox Interactive believes that certain gameplay elements from the upcoming Starhawk were only doable on the PlayStation 3."

Sixaxis isn't one of them unfortunately

Yes Rashid, it was an embarrassment

gameseveryday2337d ago (Edited 2337d ago )

I really hope they start using six axis more in games.

iamnsuperman2337d ago

The only game i see it in now is Killzone and its small part.

TheOldOne2337d ago

@ iamnsuperman

flow, flower, folklore and Heavy Rain etc. are also games that use sixaxis, but yh i would like it in more games.

Urrakia342337d ago

I think inFamous incorporates Sixaxis very nicely into its gameplay with that thunder ability. Examples like that make the game just that much more immersive and fun.

nickjkl2337d ago

infamous
killzone
heavy rain
motorstorm
little big planet
heavenly sword

if im not mistaken gta4 used six axis
yep

Folklore was the best game use of sixaxis

kreate2337d ago

HaHa_Ostrich2337d ago

I liked the sixaxis controls in mirrors edge.

I was playing flower again the other day. Love how they use sixaxis for this. Can't wait for Journey too. In my opinion sixaxis is not dead.

Only a handful of great games use sixaxis and that's not bad.

NewVegasTroop2337d ago

lego star wars the complete saga uses sixaxis to drive spaceships........hey no its not my game!! is my little brother's game :P

chidori6662337d ago (Edited 2337d ago )

is This thing of "only possible in PS3" IS crap.

this graphics is good but nothing groundbreaking.This game is just like any other shooter up..nothing unique..I even think the Graphics on GOW3 look better.

Max Power2337d ago

I also believe God of War 3 graphics were better, then again I am not sure why you are comparing a Hack n' Slash with a TPS.

Bonobo123452337d ago

he was referring to the AI alone, his words may hold some truth but I'd generally take them with a pinch of salt, they are 1st party after all.

However this game certainly looks to be something Unique and refreshing, I mean mixing fast pace RTS elements with the base of a great TPS like Warhawk can only lead to great things.

One of my most highly anticipated games.

FunAndGun2337d ago

I think it has more to do with the AI and scripting of actions in dealing with the build and battle situations.

Since you can build bases, walls, and bunkers, the AI has to be advanced enough to know what to do when the battlefield changes on the fly.

Along with that, the graphics, the scale of the maps (horizontal and vertical), and the amount of action that is going on across the map, its is more groundbreaking than you think.

Just because visually it doesn't look like the best game ever, the gameplay is definitely unique and it will be an amazing multiplayer game.

paintsville2337d ago

I agree with you on the graphics part Chidor. The ONLY thing and I do mean ONLY thing that makes this game uniques to ps3 is that sixaxis controller that no one seems to remember or use. Other than the controller there's NOTHING about this game couldn't be done on 360.

princejb1342337d ago

graphics isn't the only thing , gameplay is a bit thing also and he was referring to the AI not the graphics
read a article before assuming things

Ju2337d ago

@Paintsville, take a less in reading comprehension. a) he was talking about AI and b) that game doesn't even support Sixaxis (not Warhawk!)

HeavenlySnipes2337d ago

GOW3 is reserved for GOD OF WAR. All your replies are talking about God of War while you probably meant Gears 3 lol

Heavy Rain used this tech very well. And so did War Hawk. +Many other

FanboyPunisher2337d ago

lol, both consoles arnt that far apart to make a statement like that.

If you were on a 2011 pc and made the comment, sure. But starhawk is just trying to hype to fanboys like all the other companies do to net more sales.

Sorry.

Don't give GamingBolt click traffic. All they do is link to other peoples' work.

Please, N4G, for the 100th time, BAN GAMINGBOLT. They pull this crap all the time. They are hacks and leeches.

Ah here we go again with the "it can only be done on the PS3" BS.

Hey, why don't you try and make it on the 360 and see rather than "we think". Find out for sure.

theunleashed642337d ago (Edited 2337d ago )

sorry it's published by sony meaning the IP is owned by them.

EDIT: ah the great old disagrees but no replies it is indeed being published by sony, you can disagree all you want.

Drekken2337d ago

Read the interview about them dropping in buildings and having to make the AI change on the fly according to where things were built. Instead of being a little butthurt 360 fan, why don't you read WHY they think that. They need SPU's to make it all work... as do most of the phenomenal PS3 exclusives.

After saying that, they said this weeks ago and there is no need for another article rehash.

MOTY2337d ago (Edited 2337d ago )

Lame response.

I guess the point of my comments was over your head.

They said

"WE THINK"...do you understand what that means? It means that they are not sure. They are SPECULATING!!!

They know that THEY need all the SPU's in the PS3 in order for it to work. They don't know if using the 360's dual cores would work....THEY DON'T KNOW!!! Do you understand? They are building the game on a PC. I am willing to bet that the PC in which they are building Starhawk is a multi core PC...JUST LIKE THE 360!!!

Come on people, use a little common sense here. The 360 is designed very similar to a PC. PS3 games are built on a PC. HELLO!!!

Stop being sheep and use those brains of yours.

EDIT - @ thelogicking

It's understandable that Sony owns the game, but then why say "we think it can only be done on the PS3" if they have no intentions of finding out? It's an irrelevant comment. Why make it if you are not allowed to try and make it on the 360 and have no intentions of trying?

It's a stupid comment to make. That's why it's BS of them to even say it. But they do know that if it works on their computer that doesn't use SPU's but most likely is a multi core computer, then they know there is a good chance that it can be ported to the 360.

It's just Sony PR BS once again trying to make the claim that it can only be done on the PS3 when they know damn well that they have no intentions of trying to make it on the 360...even if their own PC's can do it which uses the same tech that is in the 360.

thelogicking2337d ago

well to be fair, they NEVER developed for the 360 so how would they know it wont work on it??
besides, they are making games for sony, what did you expect them to say?? "the xbox version will be better"???

Bonobo123452337d ago

@MOTY

"PS3 is really the only console out there that we think can do this"

Valid point considering the only other console is the 360 really...

"They know that THEY need all the SPU's in the PS3 in order for it to work. They don't know if using the 360's dual cores would work....THEY DON'T KNOW!!! Do you understand? They are building the game on a PC. I am willing to bet that the PC in which they are building Starhawk is a multi core PC...JUST LIKE THE 360!!!"

The PC they are building this game on is going to be one hell of a lot more capable than the xbox LOL. You think it will just be a duel core?

I think it's highly likely that this game would be impossible to port to the 360.

"Come on people, use a little common sense here. The 360 is designed very similar to a PC. PS3 games are built on a PC. HELLO!!! "

"why say 'we think it can only be done on the PS3' if they have no intentions of finding out? It's an irrelevant comment. Why make it if you are not allowed to try and make it on the 360 and have no intentions of trying?"

And yet you are suggesting the exact opposite with no intention of finding out. So, pot, meet kettle.

Also, you should apply for a job at Lightbox. Show them how advanced multi-platform AI programming is done. You sound like you are a shoe in, especially if you go in there dropping bombshells like your assumption that any PS3 game developed on a PC can run on a 360 because PC and 360 "use the same tech".
