Digital Extremes has admitted to encountering some substantial issues when developing the PlayStation 3 version of its forthcoming title Dark Sector, stating that the game was not “running as well as the [Xbox] 360” version.
Speaking during a demonstration of the game, Producer Josh Austin commented, “So, yeah, this is the PS3 version, umm… it looks just as good as the 360 version, which we’re very happy about.”
“Towards the end we started having some serious conversations about what we were gonna do, uh, but we ended up pulling it off, so we’re very proud of that”, he explained.
When asked to clarify these comments by an attendee of Ripten.com, Austin stated, “It was just not running as well as the 360.”
Fortunately though, as detailed above, development of the PS3 version has since progressed smoothly, and will launch alongside its Xbox 360 counterpart next month.
Stay tuned for more coverage on the game here at PSU in the near future.
