Developing GRAW2 For The PS3

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 hit the 360 back in March to strong praise, and now five months later it's set to hit the PlayStation 3 next week, complete with exclusive maps and weapons. We got a chance to chat with Olivier Didelot from Ubisoft Paris, the Lead AI Engineer on GRAW2 about the difference and challenges involved with developing a game simultaneously across the two different platforms.

I think it just goes to show, if you develop the games at the same time there is never going to be a performance difference. Only the first generation multi-platform games will favour the 360.

it is just an inferior game machine compared to the 360. Have fun paying 60$ for all these games 360 buyers get for 30. And below, yes the PS3 has a huge disadvantage in the AI area, you need a GPU to process AI, the 360 has 3 large GPU's and the PS3 has 1 small GPU, you do the math. The AI is MUCH more inferior on PS3, and the more games use it, the more this will show, and retarded comments with no evidence don't mean anything, look up how AI works, FACT: you need GPU FACT: the 360 has more than 3x the GPU power(AI ability) of PS3, have a nice day.

The irony of you calling any post retarded is plain for all to see. Three GPUs? WTF?

ROFLMAO! Talk about the most retarded post ever. =P Go away, fanatic scum, hehe.

Read slowly: "The code written for AI is actually exactly the same on both platforms."

Yep, AI is JUST code. If you run the same code on both consoles, the bad guys will do exactly what the AI will tell them to do. End of story.

Didn't we hear from them a week ago that AI on the ps3 is inferior? Now its exactly the same.

Laziness is a stinky cologne that many devs are dousing themselves in these days. Leave it to a division of Ubisoft to make another of its divisions look like assholes.

In many areas, studios under a publisher can function independently to a degree. There isn't this big pow wow every week - it is every 6 months to a year sometimes. That said, if a studio is having trouble, Ubisoft will send people from one studio to another to get things up to par. The sent RSE people to Romania last year.

What last weeks story does show is that people in Ubi Montreal are incompetent, arrogant, and simply do not care enough to do a good job.

This game GRAW2 is an awesome shooter and I'm excited your getting it. It has a great and challenging single player campaign and an awesome multiplayer that's not to be missed. I think I'd chose it over KZ2 b/c this game is realistic.
