Factor 5 Switches to PS3, Tom’s Hardware
I know this is old news, but I haven’t mentioned it before. Factor 5, the developer of Star Wars games for Nintendo machines, will be exclusively developing for the HDTV-capable PS3 for the next generation of consoles.
Factor 5 has already played with Microsoft’s Xbox 360, but said the PlayStation 3’s 3.2GHz Cell chip offered more processing power over the other hardware options. The added power, allowing for a more realistic gaming experience, fueled the company’s decision. Factor 5 made no comment on Nintendo’s Revolution in the story.
Regardless of the company’s personal preference, however, they say the next-generation should offer much to gamers and developers. “I was shocked by how powerful the new consoles are,” said Factor 6 president Julian Eggebrecht to News.com. “They should really free our development.”
And in other news, Tom’s Hardware takes a very brief look at the PS3. Hopefully there’ll be more to come.
