CliffyB: PS3 Owners Shouldn't Worry About Bulletstorm
Developer People Can Fly have a lot of confidence in Bulletstorm, and we're psyched for the insanity, too.
But you know, as Epic Games is in charge and they're predominantly an Xbox 360 developer, the PlayStation 3 faithful have voiced their concern. Sometimes, we often think designers should simply stick with the platform with which they feel the most comfortable, and focus on getting the most out of that platform. But Epic boss Cliff Bleszinski said PS3 owners needn't worry about Bulletstorm. In a video interview shown at CVG, CliffyB reassures PS3 owners and promises they won't get some lackluster port.
"When you see the game on PS3, you'll see the textures look crisp, the depth of field looks great, the particles look amazing - it will very much take advantage of what the PS3 is capable of."
Some naysayers will claim they've heard such propaganda before because that's all it is: propaganda. In the end, the developer doesn't make good on the promise. However, that's not always the case; we refer you to Platinum Games, a team that made the mistake of letting Sega port Bayonetta to the PS3. They then addressed the issue with Vanquish, a game that turned out pretty freakin' great on both the PS3 and 360.
So yeah, we'll believe 'em for now. Besides, we're really hoping Bulletstorm is just...grand.
