id Software Hypes Nintendo Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360

Steve Nix of id Software appears to be a fan of Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3. It would seem the Director of Business Development is a big believer in the power of schmooze.

"The 360 is a great platform. It's really easy to develop for, it's really programmer friendly," said Nix in a recent interview with GameDaily BIZ.

On the merits of developing for PS3, Nix was more verbose.

"PS3 is a powerful machine but it's not quite as friendly to get to. It's also a year behind the Xbox 360 as far as tools and everything. I think plenty of great games are going to be made on the PS3. It's a little bit harder to develop for but we're definitely committed to developing for PS3. So even though John says it's harder, we're still going to make games on the PS3. It's a very important platform; plenty of PS3s are going to get sold into the market, so we're absolutely going to be supporting the PS3 and we've said that in the past. It's tougher; eventually we may be able to unlock some of the power of the Cells in interesting ways to make games on the PS3 that end up looking better than other platforms. So yes, it's a little tougher to work on, but we're going to be there. We can't ignore the PlayStation 3."

The story is too old to be commented.
