While many publishers are trying to push for shorter development times in order to maximise profits, THQ has decided to give developers a lot more breathing space - something which is very evident with Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
I'm glad they're aware of that.
Oh those THQ guys always giving us these great tips...
I wish Sony was aware of it. Killzone 3 was rushed, everyone on the KZ forums agreed, even fanboys. The game had a huge patch list to be relaesed shortly after launch and 1 month later, it was a no-show. Also, a Socom 4 patch was also expected after release. Socom Confrontation beta (different devs) had their game completely bugged out, to the point where it wasnt showing the select screen, and this was 1 week before release. Even in a LA Noire dev interview regarding Sony, they said devs had to fight for their release month window. I'm assuming if it gets delayed, it gets delayed 4 months for the next release window.
I wish they would tell that to their friends at Yukes. SVR every year same crap short development times. Now they are adding All Stars or Legends games to their development as well. Tell Yukes to slow down and make quality!
There's also a case for the opposite though. Long development times don't necessary make for great games either.
yeah but nobody said that except you and the dude in the next post haha
So, we should expect Duke Nukem Forever to the holy grail of all things gaming. :D
or maybe too human 2? or mr wake perhaps? :D
on the account that the too human that came out was completly diffrent than the playstation and gamecube game... and the fact that they had 2 years to make the engine and get the game out... id say too human was pretty damn good... and toohuman 2 if it is in the works has been what 3 years? if that its not taking that long....
No shit Sherlock!
"Shorter Dev Times Reduce The Level Of Quality" Fact
Next time on N4G: Oxygen - Without it, we would be dead.
and there would be no gaming
interesting... I had always thought that it would only increase the quality... I had no clue..
*ahm Call of Duty ahm*
Someone post a Captain Obvious pic in here so we can all go home.
