Skyrim director, Todd Howard recently stated that the development team had completely rewritten the graphics engine to make the 360 version of the game look good, but very little has been said about the PS3 build. Pete Hines has shared some details that should calm any fears for fans that want to purchase the game on PlayStation.
When asked if the PS3 version of Skyrim will be at the same graphic level of 360, Hines replied on Twitter:
Yes, PS3 and 360 have reached a good place of parity….framerate, fidelity, etc. The PS3 version is getting a ton of attention.
Hines also specified why there haven’t been any PS3 specific screens or footage of Skyrim released to date:
We don’t ever specify what platform screens or footage comes from. It’s usually a mix.
It’s not exactly a big industry secret that overall quality can suffer if games are ported from one console to another, luckily this doesn’t seem to be the case here. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is set to launch on November 11th.
