Mark Rein Optimisitic on PS3


Mark Rein (of Unreal fame) had several positive things to say about the PS3.

While he loved the 360’s online integration with PC’s, he also preferred the developer freedom and control over online functionality that the PS3 allows. Let’s hope this freedom attracts more developer attention and innovation.

He also said the PS3 is “in better place for launch” compared to the 360. That’s pretty obvious but it’s still good to hear.

Clearly, PS3 had much more to show with PS3 at E3 2006 than 360 did at 2005. Developers were getting final PS3 hardware around E3 where 360 developers didn’t get final kits until mid/late August (according to IGN). The 360 has progressed a lot since then, but this definitely bodes well for a smooth PS3 launch to see them so far ahead.

    Yes the PS3 will have a better launch, it was delayed 6 months. Remember Sony promised the ps3 in the spring at last year’s E3. I dont know the reason for the delay, but it was rumored to be because of the blue ray drive. Yeah if the xbox 360 had launched 6 mothns later it would have launched with Oblivion, GRAW, Fight Night R3, Burnout Revenge. Anyway just thought I would point that out.
