March 13, 2010 // 1:53 pm - God of War III game director Sig Asmussen claims the PS3 video game could be twice as good, in a recent interview with Destructoid.

To quote: "I think our studio will use this engine again, and it'll get better. And I think we're probably about 50- or 60-percent at it right now. I think there's a lot more we can do with it."

He then talks about perfecting the transition from cutscene to gameplay, lighting improvements, and particularly, animations:

"I think individually our animations are incredible, and our animators are incredibly talented. But I think we could make our system technically better, in the way we blend animations.

And I'm pretty sure that we already have the code to do that, and we just didn't implement it in God of War III because it came in real late."

This is their first release on the PS3 and they had to build new engines from the ground, up. They will expand as they get more acquainted with developing games for the PS3, GOW 3 looks to be hype no matter how much of the systems power it uses, this only means future GOW tittles may be more advanced.

I think more developers means more crap to sort through to find good games, not more people giving more ideas for better games.

I remember Valkyrie Profile 2: Sylmeria on PS2 and it was frigging awesome!

So, it's common better graphics till the end of lifecycle.

Guess, a lot of people liked the article i digged

Games always look better and better as you get further into the consoles lifecycle. (Just look at resi 4 on gamecube compared to a launch game).

It is just more severe on ps3 because the devs have to work out how to use the cell processor.

Pretty soon Wii developers wont have a choice but develope for 360 or PS3. There has been alot of talk about the sales of wii dropping and developers have to go where the market takes them. Unfortunately those developers that make generic games for the wii might not have a home with these two consoles. Maybe in the PSN games...who knows.
