On his webpage, Josh Robinson writes, “I am a 27 year old 3D artist with 9 years of professional experience. I have been very busy this last year trying to make a name for myself within the industry.” Well Josh, looks like you’ve done that.

The rumor mill churned out this doozy of a quote from Josh. It goes:

I’ve spent some time the past year developing for the PS3. Actually it was a cinematic demo to be shown at e3 in 2005 at a closed door viewing. I was one of the few artists selected to work on it for the demo. My job was primarily asset creation. I was creating assets to populate the path where our camera would be flying during the demo. The company I work for is also working on a launch title that I am quite familiar with. In short, I’ve spent some time around the PS3 and or the teams developing for it.
Now I’ve spoken with people who are on the technical side of the PS3. I’ve also talked with people on the technical side of the XBOX 360. The consistent comment I am hearing from people on my end is, “The XBOX 360 is better”. They are saying that it is capable of just doing more.



Last night, I dashed off an email to Josh in an attempt to clarify his quote and pretty much find out who the heck he is, but haven’t heard back. Word to the wise, folks: don’t use your real name when badmouthing your company’s gear.

You pasted the text twice.

I respect artists and they are closely involved with the fine details of optimizing and targeting their models and textures for specific numbers in a scene (polygon numbers, pixel shader performance etc) but they are not the ones that have to deal with the impossibly difficult multicore mess that is the next generation. Where specificly the PS3 must be a nightmare.

But I also ASSUME that we will se the most taken out of the 360 far sooner than will be the case with the PS3, where it will take years for developers to master the hardware.

That's a server error. It happens on occasion.

Re the ps3/360 talk, I think it is pretty commonly held belief that the 360 is an easier machine for which to develop games, especially at this early stage of next-gen gaming. 6 asymmetrical cores are going to be a bitch.

Since the forum upgrade it's got a new feature that keeps out dupe posts,, if you make two posts in the same topic in rapid succession they will appear in the same post

similarly if you make two topics with the same title in rapid succession they will appear in the same post.

When that happens it's usually because the user: submitted, received a server error, went back, and submitted again.

A good rule of thumb 95% of the time if you get a server error that DOES NOT include the "post text saved" message, it went through even though you got the server error.

This comment is really gonna juice up the Xbox fanboys. Too bad he hasn't dealt with both systems himself, because then he would actually be able to compare them himself. As opposed to repeating what people working on the Xbox 360 have said. I hope it's true though, because I have a 360, but I'd still like the PS3 someday.

I have been very busy this last year trying to make a name for myself within the industry.

i dont think this is how you go making a name for your self. i think josh is going to be a joke now. all he is saying is he heard someone say 360 is better to program for. that means anothing. this is stupid. i dont think it really matters. if it did when the xbox came out everyone would have jumped to the xbox.
