Ubisoft: Ps3 Not As Much Available Memory As Xbox 360

Taken from Games Radar, from Edge magazine:

A Ubisoft developer was recently quoted as saying that porting titles over to the PS3 from Xbox 360 (their main development platform) means that there is less memory available and implied there is a DROP in quality of which they're trying to resolve.

Taken from Games Radar, from Edge magazine:

"Further to the Edge comments this month about how MUCH BETTER Call Of Duty 3 looks on 360 in comparison to the PS3 version, I noticed this in GamesTM this month On Rainbow Six Vegas.....

'' .....a chat with the Ubisoft development team shed a little light on he matter."All I'm able to say is that we're looking to ship on PS3 as well but we're not having specific content.....we're developing with 360 as our MAIN development platform and porting to PS3 means that there's less memory available for us to use, but we're trying to minimise any drop in quality"..Such comments suggest that the gap in performance between Playstation3 and Xbox 360 is nowhere near as powerful as some would like us to believe and that the console(PS3) may even be LESS able than Microsoft's..."

They also go on to say that only the 360 version will feature the face mapping technolgy and that their are no plans for PS3/PSP linkage or to use the sixaxis tilt technology.

So it seems that in terms of graphical power and online gameplay, the Xbox 360 is the way to go.

Everybody know this (at least the non Sony fanboys)that's why PS3 games look like POO, green brown dull and life-less. Expect alot of flat texture's (Painted walls).

Will There Ever Be A New Rayman Game?

Ubisoft barely have a leg to stand on lately, so do they need to crack open the vaults and return platforming royalty to glory for some goodwill?

We need Rayman 4, they could make a great platformer game if they wanted. With the open hub levels and the like.

Better than relying on Rabbids and Assassins Creed all the time

Yeah agree id love a Rayman 2 style 3d platform game over another 2d platformer I know people loved legends but it never gelled with me same as Rayman 1 back in the day on PS it just felt like a average platformer with sonic and Mario offering something better on what was then last gen hardware

Yes..but I am sure it won't be the Rayman game fans want. Not from the company that is Ubisoft today.

Ancel is retired from games. His hoodlum/rabbid team are doing their own thing. It would not be the same if Ubisoft did.

Probably far more profitable to make low effort Rabbids games aimed at kids over a next Rayman

Experience points, skill trees to fill up, level gating, endless menial tasks and side quests, constantly scrounging for resources. Always having to upgrade your gear. A.KA. "The Ubisoft effect".

No thanks, don't ruin Rayman's legacy.

Sure there will be it'll launch right alongside the next splinter cell
