- Black Box has confirmed that the PS3 will be the lead format for Skate 2, due to criticisms levelled at its predecessor.
Speaking to GAMER.tm recently, Black Box producer Jason DeLong
confirmed that the PS3 version of Skate 2 would be the lead version of the game, after the PS3 version of Skate 1 was criticised for not being as good as its 360 counterpart.
"The PS3 has been our lead platform," DeLong confirmed. According to DeLong, this was due to "the PS3 version Skate not being as good as the 360 version," adding that it "was something we learned very quickly that we had to remedy on the second one."
Despite this, DeLong reckons gamers will be hard pushed to tell the difference. On the topic of whether there'll be any noticeable differences between the two versions, DeLong said "not so much."
"We're definitely been developing [both versions] in parity. The goal is that if you put both versions side-by-side, you will not be able to tell the difference."
So in a nutshell then, followers of both consoles will benefit. Skate 2 is due out sometime next year.
