Namco Bandai: Tekken 6 Will Not Be Inferior on Xbox 360


Tekken 6 director Katsuhiro Harada said today that Xbox 360 owners should not fear an inferior version of the fighter when it launches on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this year.

“We want to dispel any fears that fans might have that the 360 version will be inferior [to the PS3 version],” said Harada. “We are making progress every day and we’re quite confident.”

Harada says that bringing Tekken 6 to the Xbox 360 has been a “big challenge” since it was originally designed for an arcade board with a similar architecture to the PlayStation 3.

They believed the game had much potential on the PlayStation 3, however.

“As far as [the PS3’s] potential goes, this is something we really noticed when developing Bloodline Rebellion. In the Tekken Project, when we talk about dividing the processing we say to “SPU it”. If you use the SPU’s capabilities properly and optimize the code accordingly you can pull a lot out of the hardware.”
