Interview with Sony UK's David Reeves about PS3 price-drop, arrival of killer PS3 games and more

David Reeves is the president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe so, along with president (Worldwide Studios) Phil Harrison, he's the biggest cheese at PlayStation outside of Japan and the U.S. SPOnG caught up with him in order to quiz him about the lack of PS3 price-drop in the UK, when we'll start seeing killer PS3 games, the delay in PS3 porting of games that use Unreal Engine 3 and all sorts of other tricky questions.

SPOnG: A load of games that use Unreal Engine were supposed to be out at launch but didn't make it until recently. Now we see that Unreal Tournament 3 is going to be a PS3 exclusive. Is that payback for Epic not finishing the PlayStation port of Unreal Engine 3 when it should?

David Reeves: We have put a lot of human resources into North Carolina to make sure it works. We believe in their technology, and there are quite a lot of games that depend on their technology, so we felt that it needed turning up a notch.

The story is too old to be commented.

I see absolutely nothing on the PS3 coming out this year that will sell over 1.5 million units worldwide. (apart from motorstorm seeing as they're bundling it)

"SPOnG: What are the IPs that really stand out for you beyond Killzone 2?

David Reeves: They haven’t been announced, but I’ll give you the thought process. We have now every quarter something called Gameshow where we all get together globally and look at what Worldwide Studios are producing.

Now, we don’t see every game at every session, but every session, we see five or six new IPs which we can rate. I can, hand on heart, say that there are six or seven such games, coming in the next 18 months, which are absolutely spectacular.

There are some that are very emotional – one of the objectives we gave Phil (Harrison) is to make people cry. We know that in the middle and the back end of next year, these are going to come out and people will say: “I have never seen anything like that before”. We just have to be a little bit patient – there will be more God of Wars and so on.

What has been remarkable is that there was a crash programme to put games on the PlayStation Network – LittleBigPlanet was originally designed for that. We’ll see that some of them will be online, but some will be done as full-blown games. We started that over three years ago."

Lucky bastard! How cool is that to look every 3 months new games that no one has seen!?

"We could have gone the route of renewing, maybe with GTA and other things, and we have chosen to do it, for example, with Konami."

This should end the disscution of MSG coming to Xbox.

I noticed that too, as far as I am aware MGS is the only game Sony paid Konami exclusivity for (correct me if I am wrong)... could be the final nail in the rumors coffin
