Ubisoft: Beyond Good & Evil 2 needs more hardware power to run

#1
Would anyone mind translating what is said in this interview?

Update:
Can you tell us on which platforms BG&E 2 will be released?

We won't make promises that we can't keep. We are in an active creation stage and at this moment we are only focusing on the game and making it the best game that we can. That decision would just distracts us from that objective. I can say that it's a very ambitious game and we need some tech to achieve that ambition.

This last teaser video is very reminiscent of Mirror's Edge. Is it an influence for your game?

No, not at all. We had this concept even before Mirror's Edge launched. And we have a different approach to the first person perspective that Mirror's Edge has. Prince of Persia and Assassin's Creed are closer to what we have in mind with the control of the character in a third person perspective. We use a very dynamic camera that shakes a lot during the action to add life to the camera giving the impression of an action news cover team following Jade. Maybe that could be similar to Mirro's Edge but the game itself is very different.
" We focus on the game. We create it first, then we'll see what can run it "

Basically confirms the rumor that the tech and scale was too big for current gen and the game was delayed to next gen plateforms
He also says " we don't say 2013 because we don't know when it will come. We're working to create a great game and it needs more tech "

So next gen first, then BGE2
End Update

As there's not much else, I took some screens from the initial trailer...

Oh well, still thanks. I still don't quite get this as the videos looked pretty great.

You dont get why bottlenecked consoles might not have the power to run the game? Also that video trailer was an unrealistic proof of concept trailer.

Unfortunately, they are gonna lose a lot of money by the looks of things :(

Still, on the plus side, this thread just reminded me that the PC version of Rayman Origins came out. Bought.

that teaser looked so completely out of reach when it was first shown. now though, aside from the massive scale of that city, it looks very doable for a modern pc. looking forward to this ancel!

Based on the environmental video that was shown last year, they even have all the places from the teaser ready. Nonetheless, they don't look quite as good as in the teaser due to aliasing and worse textures. Don't know whether that's just my impression though.

Ah well, and Jade also didn't look nearly as detailed in the real prototype.

thread title + article body made me LOL. really?

what a nonsensical piece of crap
Ancel doesn't want to commit to target platforms or release date stating that the game is very ambitious and hints that current technology won't serve that ambition.

edit: Ah You mean the pics with the clipping and the bad quality textures? Those are from a game in active development. The goal state should be much better than those.

I'm glad it'll wait till next gen platforms. I'd rather have the sequel that BG&E deserve, instead of a rushed, hamstrung product.
