Default Vanguard coming to PS3?!?!

Just a rumor but the Vanguard forums are exploding with speculation, especially after a recent listing on Sigil's Career page...

Quote:
Console Programmer

We have immediate need for someone to investigate Sigil products on console systems. Qualified candidates will be faced with a bleeding edge platform with which to stretch the boundaries of console gaming. Applicants with the following properties should feel welcome to apply:

* 5 years programming experience
* 4 years C++ experience
* 4 years professional, team-oriented game programming experience
* At least one shipped title using the Xbox platform with significant contribution to success
* Experience with common console concerns such as memory management, disc access, streaming, gamma, etc.
* 2 years graphics experience with D3D required
* Experience with shaders preferred
* Experience with MMOGs preferred
* Familiar with latest modeling tools; specifically maya
* Mature, team-focused software development methodology
* Comfortable working with and re-working an existing code base
* Excellent oral and written communication skills
* Online game design experience and/or know-how
* Experience maintaining large code bases
* Hardcore, avid gamer
So unless they are making a new MMORPG for consoles, It looks like Vanguards might find its way to PS3. I say PS3 insted of X360 because recently Sigil purchased all publishing rights from Microsoft and signed a contract to allow SOE to publish their title (though mantaining all rights to the product).

Very interesting...

Sigil made it quite clear they would not be putting Vanguard on a Console. Unless they had a change of heart, I cannot see this happening

Actually from what I read on the forums, they said they would not bring it to a console if it ment they had to change the game... If its the PS3 theres no reason the game wouldn't run on it considering its using only the Unreal Engine 2...

Why else would they be looking for a Console Programmer for a MMORPG title? I dout they have the team size to work on two different titles at once...

"only the Unreal Engine 2"

Come on now Magus. You and I know there is nothing "only" about that EXTREMELY MODIFIED engine. I'll just leave my comment at that before I get myself in trouble.


edit: Back on topic. Did you ever stop to think that maybe they wanted a console developer because he might have experience APPEALING to console gamers? Console gamers and PC gamers usually like different things. Maybe the console developer can help bring some console gamers to the PC world.

He's not looking for a Console Games Designer but rather a PROGRAMMER.

Yes, I know heavily modified engines can be differnet but honestly, If the PS3 can easily run UE3, don't you think it wont have any issue with UE2?

I think the PS3 can run Vanguard, but I just thought it was funny you said "only UE2 engine".

Anyway, i still doubt Vanguard will be on PS3.

*shakes hand to seal deal*


I'm holding you to your word. On release date of Vanguard(or PS3, whichever comes last), if there isn't even talk of putting Vanguard on PS3 then I better get my 100sp

Theres no deadline... We just have to wait and see the reason for hiring a console programmer.
