With SE seemingly already running into problems with the limitations of PS3 before the game is out, how much of a problem is this going to be with expanding and improving the game in years to come? It seems like its putting a definite short lifespan on the game, whereas a game like WoW could just keep updating graphics and content and go on for 20-30 years.
WoW didn't really start with high end graphics in the first place.
Sure you can make mediocre graphics better, but a game that uses the best possible graphics from the start would still be ahead, regardless of whether they're updated or not.
Visually, the PS3 helps this game more than harms it (I bet they wouldn't make the game so hardware intensive if they didn't think the PS3 sales would make up for the lost playerbase that have no good rigs).
Technically, there might be or might not be problems later on.. it's doubtful, and frankly, if the game is so enjoyable that I'll play so long that issues like that start to arise.. then whatever.
It's the least of our concerns right now, to be perfectly honest. Let's make sure the game comes out alright before worrying about the future aye? Edited, Jul 11th 2010 7:40pm by Hyanmen
