    3D games don't crumble under immense CPU hunger: that's "bollocks", MotorStorm maker Matt Southern has said.
    "You do need a little bit more processing power, but I don't think it's quite the hit that some people are claiming," Southern said at his Eurogamer Expo 2010 presentation. "That might just be the fact that we've been doing it for years now and have kind of got really optimal code.
    "I've seen people say that it takes a huge chunk of the processing power. Bollocks. It takes a little.
    "The main thing is drawing the game twice, and if your code's efficient and you've done a decent job of optimisation then it's not going to have a massive effect on visual quality."

    And we all know how careful they (developers) are with optimizing PS3 games.
