Could the SCEE first party developers be digging their own grave of Killzone 2 over-hype???
According to the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, Guerrilla big-wigs are openly suggesting that the Xbox 360 couldn't handle a game like Killzone 2. Well, they would, wouldn't they?
Guerrilla's Managing Director Herman Hulst stated of being able to develop exclusively for the PlayStation 3: "It's a huge benefit. If you're developing a game on multiple platforms there are restrictions you always have to take into consideration.
"We are taking huge advantage of the architecture of PS3. I firmly believe that what we've shown we can get out of that machine would be difficult, if not impossible, to deliver on a competing machine."
On the same issue of developing Killzone 2 on multiple platforms, Killzone 2 Producer Steven Ter Heide made the following comments: "I would say [It's] impossible. We literally can't do this stuff on any machine other than the PS3."
Ter Heide went on to point out the advantages of Blu-ray on the PS3: "To make it simple, the Xbox 360 doesn't have SixAxis or Blu-ray. PlayStation 3 does. And for us that's a really big thing. The level you've just seen is 2GB. We really need Blu-ray to make the game. I don't know how you could fit it on Xbox 360 without taking some shortcuts."
In fairness to Guerrilla, other third party developers such as Epic have indirectly criticised the limitations of the Xbox 360's DVD format before but, when all's said and done, would you expect Guerrilla to say anything different? Guerrilla's comments are comparable to Bungie stating that no system other than the Xbox 360 could run Halo 3, a claim that's a little salacious at best.
