Interview with Bethesda's Peter Hines

SPOnG was pumped to be able to catch up with Bethesda's VP of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines (pictured) earlier this week to find out more about the forthcoming PS3 version of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Not to mention quiz him a little on what else the mighty Bethesda is up to these days, including finding out some tasty tidbits on its next major game project: Fallout 3.

The story is too old to be commented.

How long have the team been working specifically on the PS3 version?

Pete Hines: Since last March, since we shipped the PC and 360 versions.

SPOnG: And what have been the highs and lows of that [PS3] development process?

Pete Hines: Erm, you know…highs… well, the high is getting it done! That's the only high we care about [laughs]. The low is that it is a long, long process… You work for four years to get this game ready for two platforms and then it's really good.

The PS3 version was just one year in developmenet? That's surely something 360 fanboys won't like. There it goes their longer developement statemnt...

Some correct me if I am wrong. Is the PS3 version a completely new game with different stories, characters, etc? I was under the impression this game was a port. If this game was a port than what you said about "The PS3 version was just one year in developmenet" it's completely wrong since what took them a year to do is porting. Let me see how I can explain this to you in terms that you can understand. It takes longer to develop a game since all game assets and concepts need to be created than to port a game to a new platform.

they want to move on.the ps3 gave them some hiccups because it's different.but what he said about 360 FANBOYS is right on the money when it comes to ps3.to take all the negative crap with a grain of salt.and that they had to step in and shut the haters up on some things.love that.

THEY HAD TO STEP IN AND SHUT YOU GUYS UP WITH THE LIES:

1.PS3 NOT HAVING ENOUGH MEMORY.

2.DOUBLE INFORMATION BLOWN OUT OF PROPORTION.

3.NOT GETTING ANY MORE CONTENT FOR PS3.

4. NOT LOOKING A LITTLE BETTER ON PS3.

5.BLURAY NOT BEING FAST ENOUGH TO LOAD GAMES.

6.RSX NOT BEING ABLE TO PRODUCE AS GOOD OR BETTER GRAPHICS.

THEY HAD TO SHUT YOU GUYS UP.

oblivion is a buy for me.just because it's coming out later doesn't mean it's not still an award winning game.you fanboys got PWNED by the devs themselves.I LOVE THAT.TO THE GUYS WITH THE LIES.YOU GOT PWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNEDDDDDD!!!!! !!
