Fatal Inertia for PS3: Unreal Engine "not running well enough" to release yet

The PS3 version of Fatal Intertia has been delayed due to "difficulties" with the Unreal Engine's performance on the Sony hardware. The game was originally designed specifically for the system, yet is deemed to be "not running well enough" according to a Koei representative. The Xbox 360 version is to be released ahead of it, as delaying it further while the PS3 version is fixed wasn't deemed necessary.

This thing makes no sense.

Fatal Inertia was shown in 2005, and NOW they claim its not working well enough?

Did KOEI find an envelope outside their HQ with a blank cheque from MS or something?

@ 1.1
And? You're telling me they couldn't do much in two years? C'mon now. That's just silly.
And yes, I'm aware that Lair, HS, and KZ2 were all also there, and that its been two years since then, too. But they're all coming out soon. Well, save KZ2.

2005 was a CGI trailer.

Lair has been pushed back several times. It must be because the Ps3 is so easy to develop for.

The reason is the Unreal Engine is unusable, Epic has failed to deliver a good working engine and has failed to support the licensee's and that is the same reason Silicon Knights is suing Epic. FOr the PS3 though, Sony is stepping in and providing help to Epic to make a better Unreal Engine optimized for the PS3.

The same goes for the licensee's of the Unreal Engine for the X360. According to silicon knights, Epic was pouring all their knowledge into Gear of war while ignoring the licensees and failing deadlines; the dates they were supposed to ship good working/finalized engines.

well its been known ps3 hardware has had trouble running the unreal engine thats why epic is tweaking it for the ps3. So it will get better. I do't really have any interest in this game so i could care less. Wipeout HD will be tons better and there are far too many AAA titles to look forward too

I've been waiting for this game for a while now. Fortunately for me, I'll be getting it on 360. And personally I dont think wipeout has sh!t on this game.

is optimized for PC architecture. Very similar to 360s.

PS3 architecture is very different.

I don't think it's even possible to be more truthfull than that. Bubbles up as if you need them.
