"Meteora said:Alright, thanks for the clarification."Also I believe that technically every console game is a port; because they are first developed on the computers first. Technically there shouldn't be much problem when it comes to porting to the consoles aside from technical and graphical differences, though there are some ports that seem to be worse off than others for some reason. Guess its not as simple as it sounds."They may be written using a computer, but that has nothing to do with how it's coded. If they are using the native APIs and programming for that specific hardware platform, then that is not porting.
"Seeing as it is easier to develop for the 360, I will get that version. For some reason (I'm no expert) games seem more polished and run more smoothly on the 360 than the PS3 imo. The load times are always less too. Maybe I will wait though and see which one actually plays better or if there is, if any, bonus content for the PS3 version. if there is bonus content on one or the other, I will go with that version no matter how it runs."
I'm not sure but a lot of reports from gaming sites tell me that as well. I think its got to do something with the hardware, being different or too new for the PS3. The two key words I keep on hearing is something about a processor cell or something and maybe Blu-ray discs; but I doubt the latter since all it does is have more storage space and has tight security codings. From a technical point of thing most of the reports show that the Xbox 360 always has better anti-aliasing and the PS3 has better textures. I prefer anti-alising over textures since I get really annoyed by sharp edges not blending into the game, but that's my opinion.
It will also boil down to how well Square ports over to the Xbox 360 and how they will optimize for it. There maybe a graphical downgrade, but we don't know how much. If it bugs you out that one version is better than the other then you might as well get a new console if you really wanted to play it that badly. Hopefully both versions will be just as good. Disc swapping isn't a problem for me. The argument that nobody wants more discs for retailers is pretty much invalid. It isn't nearly as big of a problem as it is stacking up those Guitar Hero and Rock Band kits which take up a shitload of room.
