ken_cinder Posted June 28, 2008 Share Posted June 28, 2008 The lack of love for the PS3, would be due to the fact that Carmack expressed his disdain for the multi-core architecture in the 360 back before it's launch, he certainly can't have any love for a bastardized multi-core Cell (1 core with what is it, 6 SPUs? SPUs are the equivalent of a math co-processor on early x86 CPUs. They've got to be a pain in the ass, ala Sega Saturn when multiple main processors would have made people say WTF). Only fanboys rant about any given system, REAL gamers own them all if they can afford to. All the systems have their drawbacks, but even though I want one, I can see why so many devs are having problems harnessing it's full power........it's an advanced Sega Saturn of the 21st century, with a Sony logo on it.Only unlike the Saturn, we've seen the first 2 years of sub-par development (Sony's fault for not fawning all over 3rd party devs with as much help as they possibly can) from 3rd party devs, but 1st party studios delivering decent first go titles. The next year SHOULD be good for titles on the PS3, provided Sony continues to support their devs well enough, especially new ones. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
