Dirt 2 "pushing the boundaries" of PS3, 360

Codemasters has told CVG that Colin McRae: Dirt 2 is "pushing the boundaries of what is possible" on PS3 and 360, running on a much-improved version of the Ego engine that powered the first game and Grid.

"DiRT 2 is actually running on the third iteration of Codemasters' EGO Engine proprietary technology, whereas DiRT was the first generation. As a result, there are many improvements that have been made to DiRT 2 over DiRT," said the game's senior executive producer, Gavin Raeburn

"The development team have learnt a lot from the development of GRID, and have strengthened massively in their ability to get the most out of the hardware, notably pushing SPU usage on PS3, improving multi-core performance on Xbox 360 and adding PC specific features and technology."

He went on to add: "Overall these changes mean we are pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the hardware as much as possible, and we're confident in our ability to lift the quality bar again."

PS3 is 'future-proof' according to Sony

Sony representatives say that the PS3 can far outlast the PS2 sales curve.

You might be surprised to hear that, and I might be too, that the PS2 is still hanging on waging a battle against a the recent gaming consoles... Sony should be proud of such a quality console!

Speaking with T3, Sony representatives said, "PS2 was still going strong after eight years, and with the power the Cell processor provides, not to mention the fact that PS3 is inherently future-proof, we see the PS3 sales curve far outlasting that of PS2."

Although analysts say that the nex-gen consoles woll be hitting the markets around 2011 or 2012, it would be wonderful to see whether the devs can tap the true potential of the PS3, and unleash a whole new world of content that takes gaming to the next level.
