Developers Already Have PS3s?
According to the Inquirer, Epic “gamers” has already received PS3 hardware. Now, they don’t say final hardware, but that’s the impression I got reading the article. And if this is indeed what they mean, it’s just a little bit hard to believe, because the graphics processor, the nVidia RSX, is not even taped out yet. So if Epic Games does have any PS3 hardware, it wouldn’t be final by any stretch of the imagination. But having PS3 hardware of some kind isn’t really big news either. Games, especially games tailored for HDTV like those for the PS3, take a long time to make. So if developers want to release PS3 games about a year from now (about when the PS3 will be released, according to rumour) then they have to be pretty far along.
