Midway: PS3 Tech Issues Over, 'Ambitious Open-World Game' Coming Soon

Elsewhere in the call following its results, Midway CEO David F. Zucker said the company has learned from the development process of Stranglehold and Unreal Tournament 3, and that the company's multiplatform releases would be more promptly synchronized going forward.

The Midway CEO concluded of the issues: "We do believe that these technical issues are now complete at a core level in our engine. Looking ahead to 2008, we expect the PS3 versions of our titles to ship day and date..." with the Xbox 360 and other SKUs.

Zucker hinted at an "ambitious open-world game" from Midway, to be announced shortly, and said to be one of the highlights of their upcoming slate. However, no other information was given.

I agree -- I'll be watching out for this one in the future.

kevoncox4868d ago

lol at bragging that the ps3 version of the game will now ship day to day with the 360 version... This is n64 vs. psx all over again.
Damn sony develop new tools please.

OK so now CAN ps3 fans stop talking about ut3 BEING an exclusive +) as its going to be released on the 360 the same day as the ps3 , and also he mentioned the ps3 and the ue3 do not go well im not saying but maybe xbox version will be superior.

No one else including EA has the resources to figure out the PS3, but the floundering publisher from Chicago (Midway) is the one to smooth it out? Nice PR attempt Midway.

If Naughty Dog can figure out the Cell then what is everyone else's excuse.That whole PS3 hard to develop for is a little out dated.

Bathyj4868d ago

And Media Molecule are such are huge company.

Frankly, those guys are embarrassing most of the industry, just with their lack of whining and their results speaking for themselves.

So just because EA has drunken monkeys at the wheel means that no one can figure out the PS3? Naughty dog, Insomniac, Team Ninja, Bethesda, From Software, and Ninja Theory all have a grip on it. If a bunch of much smaller devs can figure it out then what's Ea's excuse with their vast resources?

vgn244867d ago

Really? Naughty Dog has a handle on the Cell? Because I haven't seen "Uncharted" in stores. I've seen Lair and Heavenly Sword getting dusty on shelves.

Look, I understand alot of you guys who only have one system. You swear by it. But if you could afford (or like me) got all you stuff free, you'd agree the PS3 is crap. I'm not here to bust your balls. But really, you know for a fact that the PS3 isn't as good. Yet everyday you guys fight so hard for it. Why would you enjoy looking stupid?

There is no argument. It's been a year. It's done. In a year, the PS2 had overtaken the Dreamcast. You can wish all you want that your expensive Sony boat anchor is as good as the PS2, but it never will be.

So stop lying to yourselves, stop looking stupid, and most of all, stop acting like you know more about games. You do not.

cause you seem to have selectively forgotten the that the 'great' ea had issues with their early 360 games, strange that mr: 'When MS emails you saying, "No one can know that yet"' get ms out of your arse. If theres nothing on the ps3 just sell it and stop acting like a twat.

life note 4 u : the biggest companies are not always the first or the best at doing or achieving things.

Midway has finally just taken the time to get it right with some help from Sony. Sony has been working hard at helping programmers/developers figure out the correct way to program for the PS3. EA has always put out bad ports... and we all know it is one of two possibilities for this problem. First, just pure laziness. Second, and more likely... EA putting out the better version on the 360 trying to swing buyers to that console. Actually... probably a combination of the two.

HMM interesting so what was Isomniac and naughty Dog doing that others couldn't grasp.....if true then that's good news for us PS3 owners..!! since they resolved the issues can we get UT3 in december..??

Real gamer 4 life4868d ago

You see people. The ps3 different architecture was holding developers back, that the only reasn some multiplatform games was not lloking as good as their 360 counterparts. But now i see company like midway saying that we learned how to develop for the ps3, and it make me happy.
