A funny comment from Richard Huddy (European Developer Relations), Huddy recalls how, “as [he] understands it,” Sony went to Nvidia very late in the development cycle and they delivered was a modified 7800GTX – which “is a pretty powerful piece of hardware,” he notes, “but not very elegant…Xbox 360 technology is likely to outperform PlayStation 3 technology by a pretty healthy margin in the long run.”.
Amusing, I do believe the PS3 will be powerful, it will be pretty as Sony cannot afford it to not be! However I think they have missed a trick not having a Live competitor for the new platform.
Now Microsoft have to just prove how good the ATI setup inside the 360 is by sorting the DVD playback out, it is truly shocking, but hey…..
Pop over to Joystiq for the whole story.
