Ghostbusters Dev Prefers PS3 Over 360

Everyone is interested in hearing more about the new Ghostbusters game, and the Videogaming247 blog spoke to Terminal Reality president Mark Randell to learn more about the promising action game based on the legendary movie franchise.

As it turns out, the team has opted to have the PS3 be the lead development platform for the game, and chances are, it might be a fuller experience on Sony's platform. Perhaps "opted" isn't the right word, though, as Randell pointed out that the new movie is the property of Sony Pictures. Randell also admitted to wanting to "show off the PS3 technology," and if they had made Ghostbusters exclusive to the PS3, it coulda been mighty interesting:

"We’re running the same game for both platforms but if we made a PS3-only game, for example, you could double the amount of objects on screen that you’re seeing. The PlayStation 3 has seven processors and the 360 only has three, so seven versus three means you can do a lot more on the PS3. We’re keeping the game the same over both platforms so we don’t want to take out any features."

Randell goes on to say they "reserved one whole processor on the PS3 for Dolby Digital 5.1 sound," where they had to use only a part of one processor on the 360 to do that. He also reemphasized that they could be doing "a lot more" on screen if the game was PS3-only. All of this is very encouraging news to most PS3 owners, and it seems very likely that the PS3 version of Ghostbusters is going to be the one to get.

Good news, but too bad it's coming from someone developing a game for a movie.

If it was coming from Rockstar or Square, maybe someone would notice.

someone should make it a crime to purposely tone down the ps3 version of multiplatform games if the ps3 is capable of better quality....

seriously why gimp it? just etch a 'the game may look inferior on platforms other than the ps3' on the box

So what he say is that thanks to the Xbox 360 we get a more shafted product? So again it is about the money.

Sucks that the 360 being sub-standard is hurting PS3 owners.

Wtf?!? How come its ok to make a crappy 360 to PS3 port but its not ok to make the PS3 version better! If the Micro"crap" version is inferior gives the PS3 owners or multiplatform owners to obviously go for the superior version...gah PS3 getting the shaft again.

Man... These "news" items sure have a tone of xbox envy. "All of this is very encouraging news to most PS3 owners"... lol, ya'll need some encouragement, I guess. I have been checking out both 360 and ps3 since GTA4 dropped, and the ps3 hype is embarassing. I was actually leaning towards ps3 when I first hit this site, but I'm going for the 360 now. I can just imagine all the "shitbox" whining on the ps3 online. Get some self respect and quit moaning about the competition.

Even though I may not care that much for Ghostbusters or it's movie franchise I will agree that the better games will most definitely go to the PS3 and not only for its looks but for its awesome video gaming capabilities...

Returning back to this statement made by the developers after the flood of news claiming the visual deficiencies of the PS3 version compared to the 360 version.

Was this comment made by the original developers?
