Crysis 2’s producer Nathan Camarillo has stated that the two internal development teams working on the 360 and PlayStation 3 respectively have a long term competition going as to which version of the game looks and plays better. According to Camarillo — while speaking to VG247 — the performance of each console’s version has improved dramatically since this internal war has begun.
“We have two really strong internal teams on the programming side working on 360 and PS3 all the time, and they’re always in competition with each other,” said Camarillo.
“If you think ‘the internet’ are going at each other about this, internally our developers are doing this as well,” Camarillo said. “For a week or two PS3 will look better, then the 360 guys go, ‘No, no, no, we won’t have that,’ and they make the 360 version look and play better. In the end, fine, go at it. It’s going to make a better game all round for everybody, so we have that internal battle.”
In the end for us, this is great news as it sounds as though all gamers should expect a great product to hit retail shelves. While the Crysis development team has been pumping out the info as of late (since the world reveal was just a little bit ago), it seems as though the info is going to tail off until closer to release now.
