    PS3 is lead console platform for Hitman: Absolution


    Speaking to IncGamers in a recent interview, Hitman: Absolution game director Tore Blystad confirmed that the PlayStation 3 is treated at the lead platform for the console version of the game.

    Blystad explained that the nature of the PS3 makes it more difficult to work with, but can produce better results than the 360:

    "The PS3 is a difficult beast, so if it works on that then we take that as a good sign for the other platforms," Blystad told us. "Most of the developers are using the PS3 kits to test their stuff.

    "The PS3 and 360 versions look very similar to each other because the memory and things like that are of a similar power. But the way the systems use the memory makes the textures look a bit different sometimes, and we have to trim them down on occasion [for 360]."

    However, Blystad went on to say that the console development process has not affected the PC edition of Hitman: Absolution. For PC, a custom asset set has been produced "because it’s capable of such a higher resolution."

    Awesome, it's good to know the PS3 is getting some attention

    Don't a lot of developers normally go with the 360 first?

    Ah right, I thought it was something like that, sounds like they might actually use the Bluray for once

    Not anymore, EA switched to ps3, Rockstar switched idk if for all but lately have been using ps3, Ubisoft switch i think last year and a couple other major companies have actually switched in the last year or two. And with sony already giving developers there 2nd and soon to be 3rd new dev-kit, ps4 looks like it will be the major console used to develop for the next gen bc its coming out sooner and faster than the 720 bc there still struggling getting it to work properly. With Sony they just released there dev-kit for the 2nd update, and January it will be there 3rd more updated dev kit, but when sony was doing there showing off of the dev-kit they never referred to it as ps4, they always said "orbis" so the numbered systems maybe dead, bc also the 720 has a name that microsoft refers to it as, not the 720.
