Development Issues Cause Inferior PS3 Games.

PlayStation 3 (PS3) development difficulties are to blame for inferior quality when releasing games on schedule with the Xbox 360, according to industry games industry analyst Evan Wilson. The analyst also believes development challenges contribute to the number of PS3 game delays.

The statement comes following criticism that Madden NFL 08 for PS3 is as inferior to the Xbox 360 version due to sluggish visuals.

Wilson believes the added difficulty for developing on PS3 is directly to blame for the game's slower speed despite Electronic Arts comment earlier this week that it simply takes time to get things right for each individual console. The Xbox 360 has been available for a full year longer than the PS3.

"If your game starts on Xbox 360 you will have to re-engineer aspects of the game to run properly on PS3. This means additional effort," Sony's development team told GamePro in June. Assuming Madden first started development on 360, the above issue could have easily resulted in slower moving frame rates.

The analyst also believes PS3 difficulties are causing some publishers to unnecessarily delay their games after the 360 versions in an effort to bring the titles up to par.

Some speculated that PS3 development challenges forced Rockstar to delay the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 4 on both the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Re: Development Issues Cause Inferior PS3 Games.

I was reading this same article earlier, its Sony's fault for not giving developers the specs for the PS3 early and the right tools to help them create the games for it. I mean companies are still struggling now to develop games for it and have them running fine without being delayed etc. If Sony hadnt tried to be so secretive and hid specs from competitors then they wouldnt be having these problems now. +rep for posting

Exactly, had Sony been upfront and open with the specs of their console (just like Microsoft), they wouldn't be going through with this right now, developers would also know ahead of time with what they're dealing with.
