World in Conflict Dev: 'PlayStation 3 Challenging'
The console ports for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 are on their way for a Fall 2008 release, and in an interview with Videogamer.com, Petter Sydow, VP of Development, had this to say: "Well, it hasn't been easy, but I think it's safe to say that we're tackling it pretty well! The PS3 version has been the more challenging platform of the two, but we've been hell-bent on giving both consoles the same content, and so far we're holding up to that ambition. There are naturally some minor graphical differences, but overall, gamers of either platform are going to have virtually identical experiences."
Massive is trying to aim for a simultaneous worldwide release of both console versions, but aren't sure if that's going to happen, stating that it's "too early" to tell if both ports will be ready side-by-side. Uh-oh. So if the PS3 version doesn't launch along side the X360 game, don't be surprised. Still, Sydow states: "Release dates have a tendency to be very fluid as unexpected things happen during development, so we'll keep on working and cross our fingers."
