Vanquish being built on PS3 first to avoid a dodgy port

Wednesday, 17 March 2010 22:16 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami has said that his decision to develop Vanquish for PS3 first was because he wanted to make sure it was not a shoddy port.

Speaking with PSM3, Mikami said that once the team figures out how to make the game for PS3, it will move onto Xbox 360 next.

“The team knows less about making games for PS3 than Xbox 360, so we thought the sensible thing to do was to make the game on PS3 first then move it over to Xbox,” he said.

“If we can get Vanquish to a certain standard on PS3, we can make Xbox the same.”

Mikami revealed this morning that he’s to form a new studio in Tokyo after the release of Vanquish.

    If Sony weren’t such cock-blocks with their hardware, this wouldn’t be an issue. *HAVING* to develop for the more poorly designed hardware just so you can effectively port a game is utterly retarded.

    O’Connor your hatred for Sony finally comes to light. I’ll have to thank M337ING for his comment, thanks!!

    Amazing, it is sooooo difficult because “poorly designed hardware” but yet, Naugthy Dog, Sony Santa Monica, Guerilla Studios, Sucker Punch, Media Modicule, I know these are 1st and 2nd party studios, but Capcom, EA (especially Visceral), Ubisoft, Konami, Rocksteady, freaking Infinity Ward, Square-Enix (with FFXIII), Gearbox, Criterion, Vigil studios. ALL of those have made great exclusives, great ports on this “so called poorly designed hardware”.

    How many games have Platinum games made for the PS3? Oh yeah, none! Because Bayo-shit wasn’t made by them, as you know. So how can you expect them to say nice things about developing for the PS3 when they have practically NO experience with it?!

    I’ve been coming to VG247 since its inception and this is my first post. It’s a shame that the SDF has invaded here like so many other sites.

    Why does ANY criticism of the PS3 or its games either elicit a call for hatred of Sony or being called an xbot?

    Why can people criticize Microsoft, 360, Wii, Nintendo (even the PSPGo) with less backlash or name calling?

    I just don’t understand why the PS3 has to be on some kind of game console pedestal :(

    “Why does ANY criticism of the PS3 or its games either elicit a call for hatred of Sony or being called an xbot?”

    I don’t know why exactly, but PS3 fanboys tend to be especially aggressive about their format being criticised. I can only assume the PS3 has a generally younger userbase.

    @O’Conner do us all a favor and stay at your cheap ass Gaming Vault site where you think you know anything about gaming because you copy what other sites post! You think because somebody says you always talk shit about Sony their meaning your an XBOX fanboy, Why does that make you an XBOX fanboy, why not a Wii fanboy? By you taking offense to your own accusation looks to me you are in fact an XBOX fanboy that’s not proud to be one!

    You wonder why PS3 fanboys take more offense to their console, well I have a theory you remember way back in 2005 when the 360 was released well like my and many other gamers we like to game, we buy any systems that interests us like me we bought a 360 and PS3 on release day. But they are some gamers that liked the PS3 better than the 360 and like me we were hated and bashed by gamers, journalists and even retailers at gamestop and other stores just because we bought a PS3, MS bashed the PS3 even before it released with all the MSNBC bashing and other company that work with MS. This was a sad attempt by MS to slow the sales of the PS3 and make Sony look bad right out the gate. Now I supported both systems while most of my friends were bitching about Sony’s release line-up, which was not bad compared to 360′s release line-up Perfect Dark, Kameo. the more the years past the better are games got as well as more games, even receiving some GOTY awards for there Exclusives. And now that PS3 fanboys start bashing back with the RROD comments and the lack of quality exclusives from the 360 it’s now to much bashing for people to handle but it was OK when MS and the 360 fanboys were doing it. It’s not that they get made it’s the fact they get excited when you bash there systems when it’s thriving like it is! So yeah you can also keep bitching about how hard the PS3 is to develope for even when Sony said they would help devs that needed it. And yet there are still devs out there that have it down and created top quality game that only rivaled by the PC, even though PC has the Obvious advantage in there constantly upgradable tech and the difference isn’t even much at all!

    Say what you want about Sony but they did things right this generation devs need to learn how to evolve!

    The aggression arises from a mix of general idiocy and a (not entirely unjustified) sense of victimisation. Mainly idiocy, though; the common ground for every breed of fanboy.

    “I fail to see your point. He pulled the first punch.”

    Part of the point is about insults, and you dish out persoanl insults and name calling aplenty, not rarely, and often with little or no provocation. As for first punches, you throw you’re fair share of firsts. The other day some posters whined about Molyneux, never mentioned you, and you blew a fuse at them as if you were Pete’s Mom. Or stalker.

    Now on the topic. I hope they ask naughty dog for some tips and remember guys use the CELL to handle most of the work load especially when it comes to the graphics because thats how you take the PS3 to the next level. the CELL is the key people. Unlock its power and you’ll release the true beast that Ken Kuturagi has built.

  19. Spaced Oddity

    “…more poorly designed hardware…”

    Comments like this are what makes O’Connor appear to be an “xbot.” Poorly designed as far as ease of use perhaps, but the best things don’t come easy. Kutaragi is a mad genius who wrapped an albatros around the necks of the company he had been with for many years by creating this Frankenstein’s Monster of a machine. A machine capable of doing things any other console currently on the market could dream but will never see the light of day, though it requires a different way of programming, giving much of the burden to the CELL. While the negative to such a steep learning curve is seeing fewer smaller developers bring titles to the platform, the positive is that it will encourage and evolve techniques for game design thus pushing the medium forward. So while the lazy and ignorant can say the PS3 is a poorly designed piece of tech, it’s aiding in the maturing and experience of development.

    Concerning fanboys:
    They’re all morons, pure and simple, seeing what they want to see while ignoring any and all facts present. It is foolish to dismiss the existence of Xbox fanboys who have also flooded to this site like a cancer spreading to the last pure cells left. Fanboyism has expanded beyond the comment forums and into the media itself. Thankfully, the editors and contributors to this site remain unpartisan to any fanboyism, which is why I love this site. And Stephanny Nunnely. The girl has the key to our hearts. lol

    I was thrilled to discover Vanquish was going to be developed in-house, but even more so that it is PS3 lead. The technical issues are what prevented me from investing in the PS3 port of Bayonetta. In Mikami we trust! Cannot wait to see how this game turns out, though I wish there would be some type of multiplayer mechanic.

Thanks Aimless, Spaced Oddity, DjFlex, even if you duplicate accounts of mine! *laughs* Even if you don’t agree with my stance on the issue, at least you lot have the ability to discuss the subject like grown adults.


    1) Because I have been directly inferred to as an “Xbot” on constant occassions, despite regularly condemning things Microsoft do.

    2) Its amazing you say that about my site considering that 1) 99% of VG247′s news is taken from other sites as well, and 2) there are numerous unique articles flying around the site. How about you a little less cheap a tactic than futilely attempting to attack my character?

    3) I have, almost without exception, been exclusivly playing my PS3 over my 360 for the past month and a half, laregly due to the fact that ther have been SO MANY BRILLIANT GAMES coming out on it! So no, you don’t have a point. I most certainly have never attacked anyone for owning a PS3. I’ve attacked people solely for being ignorant idiots.

    Just because some developers dont know how to develop on PS3, doenst make that system “poorly designed”. If anything is the developer that lacks the skills needed. Yes its different from the 360 system but look at uncharted 2, god of war 3, kz2, mgs4, LBP. All examples of the power of the PS3, IF you know how to develop on it.

    Poorly designed hardware? No chance
    Different designed hardware? Yes

    Poorly would be a matter of opinion i guess. But seeing the immense quality of some ps3 exclusives makes me think that lesser developers dont have the skill, the money needed or the will needed to develop for PS3.

    Question for everyone. Do you think a similar hardware design will be used for PS4?

    I don’t think it really matters if the design is better in technical terms, if people don’t have the skills or tools to exploit it then the point is moot.

    #34 5 years ago
  35. Blerk

    I always think it’s unfair to label developers as ‘lazy’. Making a game is bloody hard, even a simple one. If one system offers a much easier development process via a more straight-forward architecture and/or better tools then there’s little surprise that developers would favour that route.

    Sony miss this trick time and again and the fact that there are awesome games on Sony platforms is absolute proof that developers aren’t the lazy fat-arses that people who’ve never written a line of code in their life paint them out to be.

    Awesome games on PS2/PS3 arrived despite the development challenges – but just think how much more awesome they could have been if development had been a breeze?

    #35 5 years ago
  36. Bulk Slash

    Well said Blerk. Finding coders talented enough to work with the SPE and having enough money to invest time in properly exploiting it is very hard.

    I think now that Sony have sent Krazy Ken out to pasture future consoles from them will be more conventional in their configuration. I suspect Microsoft will have also taught them a lesson about providing more user friendly development tools too.

    We thought they’d have taken the hint after the PS2 though, didn’t we?

    I think it’s more likely that the PS4 will be a multi-Cell machine than it is that they’d ditch everything and start again from scratch, providing the Cell’s still an ongoing project by the time they get around to finalizing the PS4′s specs. Everyone should be used to it by then so that would lower the learning curve significantly, and it’d make it much simpler to provide PS3 backwards compatibility.

    What examples can you offer then O connor that the Ps3 is a poorly designed machine, apart from the obvious Bayonetta port?

    Every single game with a mandatory installation.

    That’s purely down to the Blu-Ray drive not being fast enough though, surely?

    I wouldn’t call the PS3 ‘badly designed’, just ‘unnecessarily different’. PC architecture has evolved to be pretty simple for a very good reason.

    But I completely disagree with your assumption that different console architectures lead to more interesting games, Hindle. Without that learning curve developers would have tons more time to put into the actual games rather than fighting to learn new ways of doing the same stuff.

    “I wouldn’t call the PS3 ‘badly designed’, just ‘unnecessarily different’.”

    Same difference. It’s difference for difference’s sake.

    Tomonobu Itagaki reckons the SNES was harder to develop for than the PS3 though.

    I personally wouldnt want all the consoles to be designed the same way as all the exclusives would start to look the same. Uncharted 2 looks like it does because of the Cell and Blue Ray.

    Left 4 Dead is so bloody good because of the 360s online design. Mario Galaxy and Wii sports are so dam fun because it makes full use of the Wiis strengths.

    It may be a good idea if they were but id say it would be really bad for games in general. The install is something the 360 can do as well and ive never had a problem with it.

    The SNES was a product of its time, though. These days we have standard ways of doing stuff, there’s no need to keep reinventing the wheel for the sake of it.

    O’Connor I swear you are the most ignorant fucker to ever post on this site next to BDH. STFU or I will rip your ass a new one. I’m tired of your shit. You don’t like peoples opinions well just ignore them, stop quoting every fucking body.

    Go to your site O’Connor and harass the people there….oh sorry you don’t get any visitors at that shit site. Do us all a favor and leave like psychotext.

    Yep, its more of a bugger to develop for than the others. But the end product on some of the games that take full advantage of it, is absolutely worth it, and look better than anything else.

    Having said that though, they are mainly Sony games. So if Sony helped out third parties more, they would get better results.

    O’Connor [...] STFU or I will rip your ass a new one.

    I wonder how you’re going to do that ^^

    To O’Connor : Gabe Newell thought that Sony deliberatly designed the PS3 so that the code written for that platform wouldn’t work well anywhere else. The strategy for Sony was that since they were the leaders, they could force everybody to develop for their console, having developers spending most of their R&D budget on PS3 programming, leaving little room for R&D on programming for other consoles.

    So, probably not for the sake of being different, but for the sake of gaining a strategic advantage (that as in fact turned against them).

    (By the way, that comment was made before the PS3 came out, so Gabe didn’t know at that time that it wouldn’t perform that well at first)

    #61 5 years ago
  62. DjFlex

    Oh well…another game site’s forums destroyed by PS3 fanboys. The animosity and name calling towards others who disagree is beyond childish.
    And to actually think that my comment was thought of as an O’Connor alternate account just shows the delusion of PS3 fanboys…jeez!

    #62 5 years ago
  63. Eregol

    I love how you only blame PS3 fanboys.
    There have been plenty of examples of 360 fanboys doing their very best to ruin things as well you know?

    A lot of us are sensible and like to actually have a discussion. So, don’t tar us all with the same brush.
