|Subject: PS3 is a pain, and the 360 is a dump PC says game dev Thu Feb 26, 2009 5:44 pm|| |
According to the executive producer of the new game "wheelman" both consoles are a total pain, but apparently the xbox is a lot easier to dev for.

- The politically incorrect answer is that the PS3 is a huge pain in the but. Anyone making a game, if you’re going to make it for both [360 and PS3], just lead on the PS3 because if it works on the PS3 it’ll work on 360.
The easiest way to look at it is, the 360 has one big chunk of memory, but the PS3 has two chunks of memory that in total are the same size as the Xbox, but because they’re split you can’t share memory the same way. That will bite you in the but, and it bit us in the but bad.
We had to play catch up on the PS3 because of the memory constraints and how it renders, how it processes is just different. And it’s harder on the PS3. The Xbox is just like a dumb PC, which is great because it’s easier to build a game on a PC.
