He states now that the development on the PS3 version of FIFA 09 is now “caught up”.
“This year we’ve done a heap of work to make sure that the actual visuals of the game are at least as good on PS3 as 360, to the extent where we’ve had meetings with executives that have basically been fine tooth combing almost, taken a microscopic look at what’s going on to make sure they are as good as each other, and they are. There’s no graphical features or level of rendering or anything else that’s different between the consoles this year.”
Why would so much attention need to be given to one version of the game?
“A lot of it is to do with the fact that when all the game teams around the world started work on console games they ended up making a 360 version before a PS3. So tools and technologies were there to support 360 in advance of PS3, and the investment required to do both is obviously an up front cost, and it takes a little while to catch up.”
He says that the graphics will be “at least as good” as the 360 FIFA 09 this year. Lets hope that is true.
