I'm a bit skeptical but if true it is great news for PS3 owners.

Makes sense. Both can double their earnings. Makes the PS3 more attractive.

Ugh like the UK would get any news first :D

I hate it when reporters speculate and then call it a rumor.

It's only a rumor when you can get an employee by name who flubs a bit :winkwink:

Mass effect will be on the ps3, and eventually so will bioshock. I have a cousin who works in the industry, trust me on these two claims.

Well..if they initially made it for the ps3 they could of made Mass Effect alot longer and better. It was a good game, but people I've talked to act like it's the second coming of Christ (same goes for COD4) which is really MOH w/ perks.

How so? If anything it might have been shorter and even more choppier. Developers HATE working with the ps3.

That's a bit of a generalization. Name one game where the PS3 was the lead platform for development that was short and choppy.

Tell that to Criterion and every other developer who feel that developing for the PS3 first and then porting to the XBOX 360 is better for BOTH systems.

Tell me where one didn't have a head start over the 360 version because it needed it?

From PSX Extreme, EA CEO John Riccitiello
“But in circumstances where we either led with the Xbox 360 or ran parallel production, for the most part, we’re still experiencing some delay on the PS3. It’s a little bit more of a challenging development environment for us. It’s probably only a third of a problem for us as it was [nine months ago]. But there still remains some catching up to do on the engineering side for the PS3.”

Go ahead, knock EA if you want, but they ARE one of the largest third party creators in the industry, probably THE largest. AND EA owns Bioware now, who made mass effect, which is the game in which i was asking about.

I'm not saying the PS3s not a powerful machine, it is. But from a development standpoint, its a complicated machine.

here's a good article on the argument as well.

Just didn't understand the statement? I mean I actually wanted an answer to my question, still do. How would Mass Effect have been better on the ps3 than the 360?

He said the game would be worse if it had been developed on PS3. Nothing was said about length of development. I'm not denying that it takes them longer to do it for PS3. They're still learning.

Bluray holds tons more info. I was also watching G4TV or whatever it is and developers were saying they're finally getting their heads around how to work on the ps3. It's a "beefier" system so it takes a little more to program for. I mean I'm sure it's easier to build a Honda than it is a Ferrari but that doesn't neccesarily make the Honda the better buy.

The ps3 has sold more units in the same time frame as the 360 as far as I know. You gotta remember the 360 has been out like a year + more than the ps3.

I am not saying that the PS3 is not going to outsell XBOX 360.

My "laughing" smiley comes from the idea that EA has flipflopped about their opinion on the PS3. At one point they complained (harshly, mind you) about the PS3's difficulty. On the other hand, they say PS3 is going to outsell now.

We all know EA sucks though. They flat out ruin just about everything they touch.

I'll agree with that 100%, but that may be a reason third parties choose the 360 over the ps3. It's possible, maybe even probable, they'll be able to make a better game with the ps3 hardware, but they'll be able to produce a game faster for the 360. Third parties don't always have the luxury of delaying games to make sure everything about them is right, unlike first party games.
