Metal Gear Rising development leading on PS3, says Platinum

Thursday, 15th December 2011 10:55 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Platinum Games producer Atsushi Inaba has confirmed PS3 is the lead platform for development for Metal Gear Rising.

It comes after the game’s 25 minute vidoc yesterday, which showed it being controlled from an Xbox 360 controller.

Turns out, according to tweets by Inaba, it’s what PG uses to control the game on the PC it uses for cross-platform development.

“So, in closing, Metal Gear Rising’s lead platform is also PlayStation 3,” he said in his final tweet on the matter.

For its first HD effort, Platinum had 360 as the lead platform for Bayonetta, while the PS3 version was handled by Sega. That turned out badly, with the PS3 version suffering from long loading issues.

Since then, Platinum has had PS3 as lead platform for Vanquish and the upcoming Anarchy Reigns.

Metal Gear Rising launches for PS3 and 360 next year. Thanks, Andriasang.

    so the Pc only cross-platform development and they will not release the game for pc with the xbox360 and ps3 version so why they not say that from the beginning

    Like to see more developers use the PS3 as the lead platform, not because of silly fanboyism but so both platforms turn out just about equal, it’s clear that the PS3 requires more effort.

    @4 – I did. The loading was insane when I first got the game. Sometimes up to a minute between sections. The patch that added the install option changed the whole thing around.
