PS3 "not hard" to develop for

ishigo

11 years ago

"6 HW threads over 3 processors on the X360 against 6 usable SPU's and an additional 2 HW threads on the Playstation 3...when viewed in these terms there I don't see much of a difference."

Go to Wikipedia and read up on Shared Memory vs Distributed Memory Architectures. They go bash yourself in the head with a book on parallel algorithm design.

"But todays GPU's with 100+ cores, that must be a bitch to develop for, right? "

GPUs have 100 cores? Mine only has the 1 and I only brought it a few months ago! Technology sure moves fast these days.

Are you sure you don't mean ALUs?

Speaking to GameSpot, a representative from Rockstar said, “We can confirm that all footage in the trailer was captured directly from 720p gameplay running real time in our Rage engine on a next-gen gaming console.”

assuming they are not lying, perhaps we can put that issue to bed...

Crackdown

Just climbed to the top of the 'Nexus' building on the central island in the demo - great fun clambering up (did it on 3-star agilty), and you can look out over the whole city. Still at excellent framerate too, looks beautiful.

Wasn't sure about the bright, cartoon-y art style, but its totally grown on me. Finally a game that isn't all dark browns :)

Def. purchase, will tide me until GTA4 drops.

PS3 back-compat update

ishigo

12 years ago

@Wite_Noiz
"That's a little unfair to Sony, the PS3 is ground-breaking new architecture. "

And what was the 360, a bag of chips?

Not sure I get your point, anyway - Sony found that they couldn't build an PS2 emulator in time and jammed the hardware into the PS3 to circumnavigate the problem. It added cost to the console, or loss to Sony per console, but it provides the capacity for '100%' BC. end of story.

TBH I've never ever used BC on any console I've owned, so this whole deal is 100% meh to me... :-|

Im sure MS would have done a better job if they had just gone the route of sticking an Xbox inside the 360, like sony have done with the PS1/PS2/PS3.

DICE reacts to BF2142 issues

ishigo

12 years ago

The game is currently unplayable - I get about 5-20 seconds of play when connected to a server before getting "your connection to the server has been lost".

That is, if I can connect at all, 50% of the time trying to join a game results in the marvelously descriptive "Error" dialog.

Its fun when it works, but I think the 'BF' in BF2142 stands for Buggy as FUCK.

They might when your energy bill starts coming in at £600 a month.


Problem is people don't give a shit. People will only give a shit when something like a massive price hike occurs; then they will moan and bitch about how they think its unfair, or its not their fault its the manufacturers/government/etc's fault.

Last time I checked the BC team is 5 ninja-grade engineers locked in a room, not a building full of drones serving your every wish and whim.

IMO they worked a small miracle getting BC running at all; moaning because your particular fave title doesn't work (yet.. might do at some point, no?) seems a little pointless. Who exactly are you whining at? You think Ninja #3 is reading this and slapping his forehead, "shit! we forgot teh Toca! ninja huddle!"

Darren, read your post again and tell me honestly that you don't sound like a whiny little girl. Honestly now.

They don't 'choose' the entire list of titles per-se - they aim to improve the emulator as best they can, fix specific bugs with games and often those bugs will fix other games. Its not like the EmuNinjas pluck "Bad Boys 2" out of their big box of games, squeal with delight and spend the next month trying to get it running at 60.

I imagine getting Doom3 and LegoSW running must have been the focus here, the rest prob fell out of the fixes or tunings for those... but that's just a guess.


Anyway, I'm not sure why you're being so bloody whiny - if you want to play an xbox game so badly, why did you get rid of your xbox? or why don't you just go buy one second hand? Y'all sounding like a big bunch of spoilt little girls!

Sony scales down PS3 specs

ishigo

12 years ago

"just had a thought... how much easier is it to produce the PS3-lite now it has all those parts missing? perhaps the plan is to make it easier and quicker to manufacture the lite version so as to be able to meet the majority of the demand?"

Not much easier, just cheaper. And then they can say things like "PS3, From Only £350!!" instead of "PS3, HOW MUCH??"

And seeing as the early adopter market is surely not going to want to put down £350 for a 'not fully spec'd' version, I imagine all the initial demand is going to be for the expensive pack, just like the 360 launch.

... difference being that you can't just buy a wifi card, memory stick reader and HDMI jack to upgrade your tard pack :-/


Think i'll be waiting till the proper version drops below £300...
