Free Radical says "it's nice to be able to focus on making one thing great rather than spreading your efforts".
The decision to make upcoming FPS Haze a PS3 exclusive has enabled it to "maximises the potential of the PS3", according to developer Free Radical Design.
Haze, which sees you control a soldier powered by an enhancing drug called Nectar, was originally announced as an Xbox 360, PS3 and PC game, but was subsequently made PS3 exclusive soon after.
Littlewood explained the decision: "At Free Radical we've always had a good history with PlayStation hardware. If you look all the way back to the European launch of the PS2, we had TimeSplitters coming out as a PS2 exclusive then. Ever since then we've always worked well with PlayStation hardware. And so when it came to Haze it was an obvious decision to make. Our coders were enjoying working with the PS3 and it seemed a good decision. As a developer it's always nice to be able to focus on making one thing great rather than spreading your efforts. So we were pleased to have the opportunity to focus purely on PS3."
