Volition reckons it needed extra help to get the PS3 version of Red Faction: Guerilla up to muster with the 360 version.
“I mean, to be honest, we are pushing the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 to the limits,” associate producer Sean Kennedy told OXM.
“I mean, not only has it been a balancing act making destruction work with the gameplay and making it all come together in a cohesive way that’s fun but it’s been a balancing act getting the game to run on the systems.
“One little change and you’re out of memory. When it comes to PlayStation3, there’s less memory to work with. We actually ended up hiring some from Sony to help us make our PS3 version. Fortunately, they are the same. We’ve been able to make sure that PC, 360 and PS3 versions are the same.”
So there we are. The game’s out early next year.

THQ sends word that a new Red Faction: Guerilla video‘s just been posted on the firm’s official site, showing piece-by-piece destruction of buildings. Looks really nice, to be fair. See for yourself.

According to this, THQ has formally announced Red Faction: Guerilla, the third in the Volition shooter franchise. The game is to be third-person, as was seen in the first screen yesterday, a departure from the FPS format of the previous two games.
The game’s environment is described as “open-world”, and is set 50 years after the first game. In a nutshell, you’re a freedom fighter up against the opressive Earth Defense Force (EDF) on Mars. Expect plenty of destruction and deformation.
“Red Faction: Guerrilla expands the signature destruction elements of the series and pushes the boundaries of next-gen gaming on a massive, terra-formed Mars where gamers can literally tear down the enemy EDF presence brick by brick,” said Volition president Mike Kulas. “With a new third-person perspective, a full cover system that allows for guerrilla style tactics and a diverse planet to explore we’re excited to revitalize the gripping world of Red Faction for high-definition platforms.”
Red Faction: Guerilla will ship for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 during THQ’s fiscal year 2009, which runs from April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009.

And here it is. The top one’s real, the bottom one isn’t. Looks like a bloke holding an axe, to us, and it seems to suggest a third-person element. There’s lots of deformation going on there, which is in keeping with the first two games. No idea when we’re going to get a proper first look at this.

THQ chief Brian Farrell gave first details of a third in the Red Faction shooter series in an investor call last night, following the announcement of third quarter financials. The game was described as “Red Faction III” and is being developed, as you’d expect, by Volition. Farrell promised more on the game in the coming weeks, with few details emerging on the project other than it’s going to leverage current gen hardware for “more exciting destruction technology.”
The game is to release in THQ’s fiscal 2009, which ends on March 31 next year.
