Far Cry 3 gunning to look 'incredible' on PS3, 'fantastic' on 360

But PC players will be able to "dial it to 11," says producer

Ubisoft Montreal says it can "definitely" replicate the stunning Far Cry 3 experience shown running on PC at E3 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Speaking to CVG in LA last week, producer Dan Hay said his development team is aiming to have the shooter looking "incredible" on PS3 and "fantastic" on Xbox 360 - but PC players will be able to "dial it to 11".

"Far Cry is a franchise born on PC, so we want to make sure with the PC experience you can dial it to 11," he said. "But at the same time we've got a ton of experience working on Xbox 360 and PS3, and for us making sure that they're on parity with that stuff is incredibly important.

"So we want to make sure that if you're playing it on PS3 it looks incredible, and if you're playing on the 360 it's unbelievable, sounds amazing and looks fantastic," he said.

"We're looking for the experience of anything that contracts from the great characters that we have, the really cool story, the experience that the player's going to have, the immersion... that we hit it with a hammer."

CVG got an exclusive look at the shooter sequel ahead of the E3 madness last week, and you can see exactly what we thought of the showing in our Far Cry 3 preview.

We were also fortunate enough to film a video interview with Hay, which you can see here along with new screens.
