"We had our best programmers on the PS3 [version of Call of Duty] and it shows," Infinity Ward studio head Vince Zampella has bellowed.
"We had two separate teams working on both versions from the start," Zampella says, "Most developers only focus on a single platform, then quickly port the game over to another one. You don't get very good results that way".
Contributor's note: Games Radar's information on PS3's 24 max players vs. 360's 18 is wrong. Infinity Ward earlier confirmed that "they both have 16 players max, except on Ground War gametype which has 18 players max. On BOTH consoles."
