PS3 Rainbow Six Vegas 2 will not be a 360 port

Tired of watching 360 ports come over to the PS3 and not be up to snuff? The development team behind Rainbow Six Vegas 2 feels for you and agrees. Today they let the gaming community know that Rainbow Six Vegas 2 will not be a ported version from the 360 side.
Philippe Therien, Vegas 2 Designer from Ubisoft Montreal has stated that the team is currently working on putting both versions on the same level graphics-wise but each game will have their slight difference. He goes on to say that the lighting may be different from each version, but doesn’t say which will look better.
He had this to say directly, "It's very important for us that the 360 and the PS3 version are the same. We're working really hard right now to put them on par graphics wise. As far as the gameplay goes it's going to be the entire same product."
When he was questioned at the slight differences between the two finalized products in the end, Therien preached this, "The two consoles don't handle everything in the same way. Lighting doesn't come out the same on both consoles. But other than those very slight variations they should be the same graphically."
One of the best things that came from his interview with VideoGamer.com was the way he explained the development procedure that they were taking with the title.
"They're (the PS3 and Xbox 360) very different. PS3 and Xbox 360, it's not the same at all. When we were working it's not like there's a 360 version and it's being ported on PS3, that doesn't really work. So what we did is we split the team in three, we got people working on Xbox, people playing PlayStation and people working on PC. These three teams are working together but in parallel to make sure everything gets to the same point. That's not to say that one console is better than the other, they're just different. We just want people to choose the platform of their choice to play Vegas the way we want them to."
Therien also mentioned that the team behind Assassin’s Creed lent some advice and support in how to improve graphic quality throughout the title as well. With this latest information and the fact that the PS3 users had to put up with a sloppy performance in Rainbow Six Vegas, it’s comforting to know that Ubisoft is taking the proper measures in giving each console a quality game to enjoy.

Hopefully its better than the 1st one....... graphical issues aside..... the game was kind of boring and the online sucked pretty bad. After COD4 I have little to no interest in this game... lets just see how it goes.

Hopefully it will bomb and they will allow Haze to be released if it's ready.

Is the first one any good on the PSP?

I am so sick of these developers not learning the art of devoloping for the ps3!!! The ps3 is a beast!!! A Monster of a system in terms of gaming...

why not make it better than the xbox version? It happened a lot last generation so why can't we get better stuff this generation since we have the better system??

I wanted to get the first one but I heard it was a crap port . Hopefully this one comes out perfect, well, as perfect as any FPS can be on the PS3 controller.

I wil rent it and wait for reveiws, not going to waste my money..

ps3 should still look better with the rsx, maybe it'll put some extra finishing touches on it
- 11:09am EST - February 8th, 2008
Hahaha! People playing playstation?! They better work too, or else the PS3 version will suck!!

I might play this, without the excitement and tension of playing in a gamebattle,COD4 is getting boring. It takes little to no skills to get skills, and its to easy for noobs to kill ppl..cough* mp5 cough* cough* p90...

i dont like ubisoft so until they give us conviction they can stop with their bulls*** working hard on ps3
- 12:03pm EST - February 8th, 2008
key word here "ubisoft monteal." they butchered assassin's creed so dont expect this game to be any better then the last. I wont be getting this or any other game created by ubisoft monteal. They should spend less time working on their slap shots and more time working with the PS3.

Good, ports were dissapointing
- 12:16pm EST - February 8th, 2008
I think its going to be a great game.. for the PS3 ... can't wait to see the final product ..
- 12:31pm EST - February 8th, 2008
in other words it's another port. he sure beat around the bush
- 12:36pm EST - February 8th, 2008
clap clap clap.... maybe this time the graphic's will improve, hate having problems with games cough glitches, screan tears, lag's, bug's, frame rate issues, buggers, ext.... you get the point

ok graphics on first was c***p but the online was gd u felt more like ur in a team not like in cod4 wen u run round shooting the first moving thing u see and i made most of my online friends on it so bring on RSV2 but wid better graphics and port ..... :)

Ok, I would like to agree with you and I still believe the PS3 is capable of more than the 360 but what evidence is there? I have yet to see a game on the PS3 with better graphics than a game on the 360. I really hope Killzone 2 and MGS 4 will change this.

@ TwiSta i would say uncharted would fall under that better than 360 graphics

The only reason Ubisoft is finally doing this is because companies like Naughty Dog, Insomniac, and Activison have proven that quality games can be made on the PS3. Personally I still don’t trust Ubisoft any more and I never will again (too many bad games and delays, not to mention wasted money.) but I wish them all the best in getting their work together.
