Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 Exclusive - Page 7

post #61 of 62
your right that if you sold to more people you would get a larger profits. But if the game ended up not running well on the other systems then poeple might not buy and it might not be worth the costs to port it. I think thats what hes trying to get at. You want the game to run amazing not a crappy port. So if its not gonna run amazing or the same on all the systems it may not be worth it to port.

If I buy a specialized gaming console like the 360 or PS3, I want highly optimized games. Otherwise, what's the point of all that exotic hardware?
Agreed. Cross platforming it will hurt performance IMO.
