Ported from the Xbox 360 by Sega, Bayonetta on the PlayStation 3 left a lot to be desired, resulting in a patch made by none other than Sony in an attempt to clean things up. Platinum Games appears to have learnt its lesson, developing shooter Vanquish on Sony’s console from the outset.
Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami explains in an interview with PSM3 why the PS3 is his team’s lead platform on Vanquish:
“The team know less about making games for PS3 than Xbox 360, so we thought the sensible thing to do was to make the game on PS3 first then move it over to Xbox. If we can get Vanquish to a certain standard on PS3, we can make Xbox the same.”
And those are some wise words, as many of the best performing multi-platform games were developed on the PS3’s tougher hardware first, such as Burnout Paradise. Vanquish has been claimed to be a shooter like no other and is in development for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Watch the first teaser trailer of Vanquish here.
