Dark Sector Had Issues on PS3. Almost Canceled?
“So, yeah, this is the PS3 version, umm… it looks just as good as the 360 version, which we’re very happy about. Towards the end we started having some serious conversations about what we were gonna do, uh, but we ended up pulling it off, so we’re very proud of that.”
The folks at Ripten asked for clarification, to which Austin replied: “It was just not running as well as the 360 [version].″ The conversation would then progress into off the record territory, so the rest of it couldn't be documented. But Ripten's headline states that the game was almost canceled for the PS3.
Now, the quotes published don't really suggest anything about canceling the game, but we weren't there to discuss the matter at hand, and perhaps Ripten knows something we don't. Now my question is, are Digital Extremes just saying that the PS3 version runs just fine, or will there be apparent differences, making the PS3 game inferior? I ask this because we've heard this kind of story many times before, and the PS3 version ends up coming out not as promised. I guess we shall wait and see. That said, the game's various delays do make more sense now. Look for Dark Sector to launch March 25th.
