PS3 is Lead Platform for Modern Warfare 2 [Update]
UPDATE: “We have learned by fourzerotwo, which is the committee manager of MW2, via Xbox Live that this quote is fake and there’s no such person as Todd Stevens. More information is posted up here. “… we don’t have a lead sku, both platforms have dedicated guys to allow equal dev time (the way it should be). “” – GameCenterOnline
Todd Stevens of Infinity Ward was interviewed up his upcoming blockbuster title at GDC 09, and had some interested words for his fans:
“Modern Warfare 2 is set to release early this November, and will be on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. The Playstation 3 is our leading platform for Modern Warfare 2. The PS3 version will run smoother and have slightly better visuals than the PC and 360 version. We’ve been working on Modern Warfare 2 ever since we released Call of Duty 4 back in 2007. We would like to thank everyone who is still with the Call of Duty 4 community. We will be releasing more information throughout the coming months, so be patient.”
How times have changed. The decision to treat PS3 as lead platform has become much more prevalent amongst 3rd party developers, and it’ll be interesting to see what kind of advantages Sony’s platform brings to the table.
