Platinum Games Using PS3 As Lead Platform For Vanquish
We all make mistakes. The key is to recognize the error of our ways and repent.
As most of you know, Platinum Games' new project is Vanquish, a slick-looking futuristic shooter that could become a huge sleeper hit. However, PlayStation 3 owners recognize Platinum for Bayonetta, which unfortunately didn't fare well on Sony's machine after being ported over from the Xbox 360 by Sega. Therefore, when they announced this new game, PS3 fans were instantly skeptical. Well, there's no need for skepticism because according to 1Up, the PS3 is actually the lead platform for Vanquish. When Sega and Platinum showed off their shooter at a press event in Tokyo last week, everyone saw that the game was running on Sony's console. Said game director Shinji Mikami:
"We're leading development on PS3. Obviously each console has its own unique requirements and limitations, but we feel if we can create a good enough presentation on PS3, we'll be off to a good start."
Mikami added that development actually began on the PC, but quickly shifted to the PS3. They may not even release a PC version of the game at this point; Mikami said that "any sort of possible PC version is undecided at this point," and they're currently focusing on the PS3 and 360. Obviously, we don't have to worry about another lacking port; the team has decided they won't shortchange PS3 owners again and they clearly want to take advantage of the PS3's hardware. Great news, no?
