SE to show off white engine and new MMO at gdc.

Forums - Gaming Discussion - SE to show off white engine and new MMO at gdc.

I wouldn't be surprised if this game was going to me Multi-platform but what has been said is that the White Engine is for the PS3 so there is a chance that it could be Exclusive to PS3 + PC :D

"What does Devil May Cry have to do with anything??"

Its a nice little example that you can forget about the 360 version of games in Japan? Therefore games that have their biggest market in Japan are not under much pressure to get a 360 version.

"And MMOs are not even close to as big in Japan as they are in the U.S., so concentrating on the Japanese market for an MMO is stupid."

May be true, but you weren't talking about the MMO you said Square would be stupid to release ANYTHING PS3 exclusive.

However, the main topic at hand from the OP was the MMO...

Yes but you said:

"Square would be retarded to release ANYTHING PS3 exclusive at this point."

And thats just not the case. Many of their games are targeted directly at the japanese market. I agree that it will make sense to port an FF MMO on the 360.

Hmm, last time I checked the Nintendo Wii was doing pretty good in Japan(way better than PS3 in fact) so it would make since to release anything they could on Wii as well. We are not just talking about PS3 and 360 here. PS3 exclusives mean no Wii release, which would be the dumbest move ever...

The ps3's install base won't be a problem for an MMO because by the time a SE MMO comes out the ps3's install base will be over 20 million and continually growing.

Why do people manage to bring the Wii into every bloody discussion on this site... People speak like its the holy grail!



@solidar

the whole POINT of the white engine was too have a SEAMLESS Transition between CUTSCENES (CGI) & Gameplay

wii doesn't have this power



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

"PS3 exclusives mean no Wii release, which would be the dumbest move ever..."

The problem with the Wii is that it has the processing power of a toaster oven. You can port games between 360 and PS3 like you want. But there are almost no (good) games that are multiplatform Wii/PS3/360, because you would have to go after the lowest common denominator. So at the moment developers target different games for Wii and PS3/360.

(Edit: Disclaimer: And yes the Wii kicks the other two consoles anyway.)
