Just wondering if the pirates game coming out in a couple days is a direct port from the ps2 version or if there are any enhancements?

if your talking about Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat...
the xbox and ps2 version were made at the same time as each other,so i don't now how it could be a port.

It could very easily be a port because it is more efficient for your development team to share as many resources as possible. That means targeting the least powerful platform.

It is easier to get PS2-level performance out of the XBOX than it is to get XBOX-level performance out of the PS2.

Pride and artistry be d4mned. The business side always wins because they hold the checkbook. The business side always wants the code done faster and cheaper.
