The video game industry has been debating for years on which console has the the better graphics, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.
Julien Merceron, Worldwide Technical Director for Square, decided to chip in his opinion on the console war.
“Some consumers could have gotten the feeling in 2006/2007 that – graphically – Xbox 360 games were more advanced, but today it is quite different in fact!”
“Personally, I’d say that – on PS3 – I believe there are some major improvements that can still be done, taking advantage of parallelisation and using more of the CPU for graphics tasks. At the end of current home Console life cycle, it is very possible consumers might get the feeling PS3 is slightly ahead of Xbox 360 in terms of graphics, but it will only happen if developers dedicate time to really push things on PS3!”
Yosuke Hayashi from Team Ninja also agrees that PlayStation 3 is more powerful than Xbox 360. “PS3 came out a year later than the X360. Because of its later arrival, I would say that the PS3 has a slight advantage in performance,” he said.
