Vanquish dev explains PS3 lead platform

Mikami: "If we can get Vanquish to a certain standard on PS3, we can make Xbox the same"

Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami has explained his decision to develop his new shooter, Vanquish, primarily on PlayStation 3.

According to the designer, working on Sony's box first will help avoid dodgy PS3 ports as seen in Platinum's other action effort, Bayonetta.

"The team know less about making games for PS3 than Xbox 360, so we thought the sensible thing to do was to make the game on PS3 first then move it over to Xbox," Mikami told PSM3.

"If we can get Vanquish to a certain standard on PS3, we can make Xbox the same."

Mikami revealed this morning that he is to form his own studio. Read more about the game - and see screenshots - in this Vanquish details roundup.
