    So, some games developers say that the PS3 is impossible to code for and there is no future for it.
    Then a games producer owned by SONY says that the PS3 is the dogs danglies and the other consoles are useless.
    Sounds like a knee jerk counter attack.

    But I, being a PS3 owner, am buying into it wholeheartedly.
    My PS3 doesn't suck after all. Yay!

    So according to Balestra this will be the pinical of PS3 technical gaming possibilities? Kind of pisses of Sony's claim that part of the PS3's 10-year life span is the fact people will still be unlocking new potential years from now.

    Claiming the only reason Uncharted 2 is imposible on the 360 is down to Blu-Ray is a bit dumb. It wouldn't be hard to a) texture/movie compress or b) use multiple DVDs and a HDD install. Sounds very much like a pro-PS3 knee-jerk reaction following all the recent negative press.

    Because we all know how intricately familiar this long-time Naughty Dog developer is with developing on the the Xbox 360...

    Marketing spin, they will say the same when Uncharted 3 comes out, which will of course be another jump as they figure out how to eek more of the architecture.

    The key thing to note I guess is that they are able to improve on what has gone before, which was quite impressive, meaning the hardware does have potential that many aren't tapping into, not many high profile sequels on the same console hardware provide much of a jump in anything be it gameplay or graphics, preferring to play safe and provide more of the same, from what I've read Naughty dog are tackling both, should be good.

    What's also good is that they share their source code with other first/third party devs which bodes well for future games too.

    10 year life span is a load of dogs testicles. Just think how far ahead the PC will be in 7 or so years time!

    Given that a few developers have recently said that the PS3 is both underpowered and hard to code for, I'm surprised this guy is saying that it'll run on the PS3 but not the Xbox.

    For ****'s sake. I mean really. What a stupid claim. If he had said impossible in its present form, then he would have something. Just like Gears is impossible on the PS3, in its current form. It would not be impossible to make any console exclusive game on any other console. It would just require a few tweaks and changes here and there.

    id said that the 360 was to put Rage on without an HDD and bluray, butt they worked around it. Saying that it would be impossible to make Uncharted 2 run seems a bit ludicrous.

    The NV chip can be as powerful as they like but unless it goes in a locked down platform like a console you'll probably not be able to play anything but WoW on it due to publisher piracy concerns and the shift away from PC :lol:

    I don't buy it, games on the PS3 that have their BDs filled just have lots of repeated data because the seek times are terrible.

    The graphical analysis on Digital Foundry (eurogamer.net) indicates it is a true generational leap in graphic quality.

    The first game was great and the sequel is looking even better.

    May I summarize?

    Blah.

    The End

    It is impossible because they don't care about using a different approach for a pretty different architecture. Give them a bigger budget and more time and I bet they could make it work.

    Gotta agree.

    It really is a visually impressive game. Though it could use some more intense AA. That's what bugs me about mots console games, so jagged.

    They could have put it on multiple dvd's and then installed on the 360's harddrive. It's naughtydogs job to big up the ps3. Just like epic with the 360.

    Still impressive that's it's apparently a 25gb game.

    it is a solid fact hardware on the 360 is faster than the ps3 although not by a noticeable margin. anyone who is payed by sony to use those SPE's will say this.
