EA: Games Use 20 Percent of PS3's Power (http://kotaku.com/gaming/ps3/ea-games-use-20-percent-of-ps3s-power-221137.php)

An Electronic Arts (http://kotaku.com/gaming/electronic-arts/) exec estimated recently that the company's Playstation 3 games are only using about 20 percent of the console's power.

"The whole industry knows it's been a challenge; the PS3 (http://kotaku.com/gaming/ps3/)'s a very complex piece of equipment. On one hand it's a challenge, on the other hand there's tremendous potential in that box. I think it's going to take developers a little while to figure out how to unlock that power. We've got games coming out now where we feel we've hit maybe 20 per cent of the potential of PlayStation 3. We know the power's there, but like any new platform it's going to take us a little bit of time to unleash it.
Was it more complex than we were expecting? Yes, probably; there were some challenges that we didn't expect. We've got tremendous confidence long-term that it's going to be a phenomenal games machine."


The question is how much of the 360's power was being used in it's early games by Electronic Arts. Specifically, I'd love to know that about Fight Night 3 which, to me at least, looks nearly identical on both systems. Brian Crecente

Well we have been hearing from the get go that the PS3 is a B!itch to write for so there may be some truth to it. But only 20%? I find that very, very hard to believe.

I don't think its hard to believe at all. Look how long the PS2 has been out and some of the recent games for that (God of War 2) look AMAZING! I think there is much more power to be unleashed on both the 360 and PS3.

Honestly, there are certain times now that I have to do a double-take when playing Fight Night Round 3 because certain angles look like watching TV. I can' even imagine them being 80% better :lol:

So imagine 100% of our brains playing 100% of the PS3's power..............
