Have to say that from the trailer i saw, i was expecting this to be like Lost Vikings. It's good they're trying to make the game for both consoles, rather than a PS3 game for 360.

Other than the graphics chips, the Xbox 360 and PS3 are very similar machines. I imagine it's the developer software that's causing trouble. Sony are notorious for having difficult programming interfaces whereas programming for the 360 is almost exactly the same as programming for PC circa 2005.
