Posting over on the official PlayStation Blog, senior development director on Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Ultimate Edition David Seeholzer has explained why the upcoming PS3 port is rightfully titled the Ultimate Edition.

"Fortunately the power of the PS3 and the Blu-ray medium has afforded us some extra luxuries that weren't available to us previously," explained Seeholzer.

He added: "The most noticeable difference you'll see in the Ultimate Edition on PS3 is an increase the visual quality of the game so that it truly stands up to HD Blu-ray definition. A perfect example of this is what you will see in the game's water. One of the huge new features you'll see in Red Alert 3 is an increase in naval warfare and amphibious units. Most strategy games in the past have never paid much attention to navy but we're bringing it to the center. As such, we paid close attention to detail with it and ensured that we maximized its visual aspects, without penalizing game performance even under the most intense of battles."

Seeholzer also noted that the increased storage capacity Blu-ray affords has enabled the team to include exclusive features and in game content, such as exclusive new skirmish multiplayer maps and a ton of videos. The extra development time has also allowed for further fine tuning of each mission specifically for the console.

Red Alert 3 Ultimate Edition is scheduled for release on PS3 in March.

Please guys, give it a rest. Can we have one discussion that doesn't degenerate into a 'which console is better' topic?!

I think the most realistic water I've seen is in Resistance 2. Not the best looking, but the most realistic.

But clearly this is awesome news for PS3 owners as it is just one more point which can be used in the never-ending console fanboy wars.

I love it when developers work on water.

And another great jab/poke at the Xbox360 for not having a blu ray drive. You see. More space is a great option for developers. I just wish that EA would admit it as well.
