Dead or Alive 5 looks set to take full advantage of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360’s meaty innards.
That’s according to Team Ninja boss Yosuke Hayashi, who told VG247 that the developer wants to make the upcoming brawler a game that will only run on current-generation hardware.
“You see a lot of fighting games come out now that are really easy to pick up and play – and play online as well. Really simplistic fighting games. You just get ready and go,” he said.
“For us though, we thought ‘that’s okay,’ but we really wanted to bring a new dimension to fighting games. We wanted to evolve, and create something that really uses the current generation systems’ full potential.”
“What would a fighting game be like if you took the base of a fighting game, and upped that 100%? Used up all the machine power of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360?”
“That’s something that we wanted to do – something that you can’t really port onto a handheld, something that can only be done on these consoles.”
Dead or Alive 5 is due out in 2012. The game was announced at the Tokyo Game Show in September, and marks the first console entry in the beat-‘em-up series to be developed without the involvement of series father, Tomonobu Itagaki. It’s also the first Dead or Alive game to be released for PlayStation 3.

If a fighting game really used all the PS3's power it would be near CGI quality. Imagine if Sony Santa Monica or Naughty Dog made a fighting game. How much detail they would be able to get into the fighters and the arenas.

This comment is like saying the new super highway will push the Chevy Corvette and the Toyota Prius to the maximum speeds. The fact the the ps3 and xbox are both mentioned in the same sentance infers that the xbox is maxed out and the ps3 is still looking for something to do with its remaining 7 free cpu cores,.

Xbox yes, PS3 no. Probably aren't even using most of the SPUs.

I highly doubt this mess. As a matter of fact, this is the ONLY studio I wouldn't expect this from. And judging by the gameplay they released already, it doesn't look like I'm wrong. They're full of crap.

@5 and 6
Talk is cheap, here is over 200 examples of detailed technical analysis on frame rate, graphics, etc. Check out how the corvette gets left in the dust the vast majority of the time.
SPUs aren't cores, they're general purpose processors with no direct access the whats on the disc or HDD and no ability to due AI or advanced physics (just simple stuff like textures), that's the job of the core, referred to as the PPE, a custom built chip manufactered by IBM. You'll find one of these IBM built chips in the PS3 and 3 in the 360.

well, why not? a fighting game uses only limited space for the combat and the fighters have a set number of moves, so memory can be used to max these aspects
