EALA "Maximizing The PS3" For Medal Of Honor
We know EA is using the PlayStation 3 as the lead development platform for Medal of Honor, but did you know the team has completely embraced the system's available power?
Or so they say. While Guerrilla Games say they can continue to squeeze more out of Sony's console, EALA creative director Richard Farrelly told CVG that the new MoH "maximizes what the PS3 can do." As they remind us, this comes not long after Platinum Games' Shinji Mikami told everyone that leading with the PS3 for Vanquish allows their project to reach "a certain standard." Said Farrelly:
"We're leading on PS3, we've developed the game on PS3. We're working hard to deliver the exact same experience across all platforms. I think for me the most important thing is for everyone that plays Medal Of Honor is satisfied... I guess the benefit to the PS3 owner is that we're leading on it, so we'll maximise what that platform can do for our game."
It all depends on how you interpret that quote. Personally, I think it sounds like the team has a set image and concept and they know the PS3 can bring that image and concept to fruition. It doesn't necessarily mean they're diving into the system to drag every possible advantage out of it, as first-party developers tend to do. Remember, he does say they have to make it identical across all platforms, so... Anyway, we're all very interested to see how this one will turn out.
