Despite rumours to the contrary
, SPOnG can confirm that darkSector
never came close to being cancelled for the PS3. The rumours emerged following comments from darkSecto
r's producer, Josh Austin of Digital Extremes, who said of the game, "Towards the end we started having some serious conversations about what we were gonna do".
We contacted Josh for clarification and were told:
"The development of Dark Sector for the PlayStation 3 was challenging, but there was never any question that the game would ship on both systems. Dark Sector looks amazing and performs well on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 -- we expect fans will be hard-pressed to find graphical or performance differences between either one."
What stands is the fact that Digital Extremes found the PS3 development of darkSector
"challenging". Digital Extremes is not alone in this, joining the likes of Rockstar
