360 couldn't handle Heavy Rain - Cage

Game designer pushes PS3 cause

Heavy Rain director David Cage has stoked the flames of the console war this week, sticking two fingers up at Microsoft by stating that the Xbox 360 couldn't handle his new adventure.

"I think this game can only be done on PlayStation 3," the Quantic Dream boss told NowGamer when probed.

"We used all the SPUs, [and] I think to do the visuals, and all the stuff we're doing would be too difficult [on the 360].

"There are amazing physics there, and stuff with crowds that you just couldn't really get."

Heavy Rain, a PS3 exclusive to be published by Sony, is out later this year.
