Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game director Todd Howard has traditionally taken a platform agnostic stance, stating that his RPG stunner 'looks the same' when playing on PC and console.
However in an interview with AusGamers, Howard has admitted that he prefers to show off Bethesda's titles on the Xbox 360 at trade events such as E3. Yes, even over the PC.
He explained: "For things like this [tradeshows] - I don't know if people realise - but as a game developer, the 360 is just much easier to show it on: from getting it started, to showing it, to controlling it, it's just much easier to demo on logistically."
Howard noted that although the PC version would obviously have a visual edge over the Xbox 360, he sees the console game as often a good "baseline" example of what to expect.
"Obviously, the PC version looks better: it has higher textures, it can run much higher resolution and a lot more graphic features," he said.
"We tend to show it on 360 so that it's a good baseline for people to look at, so when they then see the PC version it's going to go up. We'd rather do that than have people see the 360 later and it takes a step down."
