Arkham City Dev Promises Sharp Visuals on Consoles
It’s a story as old as video games. Console hardware remains static. PC hardware seems to get better by the month, or even by the hour. For studios like Rocksteady Games, who develop on PC’s thanks to their partnership with nVidia, the challenge lies in making sure that console versions of their games live up to the standard set by their PC cousins.
According to Rocksteady Lead Narrative designer Paul Crocker, his colleagues have achieved this goal: “I’ve walked into rooms and gone, ‘Is that the PC version?’ and been amazed that it was the Xbox version,” he enthused in an interview. Discerning eyes should be able to spot the difference, so the studio must be doing something right.
This is obviously a bit of good news for console fans of the latter-day Batman franchise. PC fans will enjoy one of today’s other revelations: Batman: Arkham Asylum for Steam at 75% off. Can’t pass that deal up!
