Lightbox Interactive’s Josh Sutphin Explains Why Starhawk Is So Awesome and Only Possible on PS3

Joel Taveras writes, "If there was one point in time at E3 this year where I said ‘wow, I need to have this game,’ it was during my time at the Sony booth. And more specifically it was when I picked up the controller to play Starhawk (my personal pick for Best of Show). While I was playing, it was Josh Sutphin, lead game designer on Starhwak who would break down everything I needed to know about the upcoming shooter. We recently had the chance to interview Josh about the title — why it’s so awesome, and why it’s only possible on the PS3. Check out the full interview below and before you ask, yes, those are Josh’s emoticons throughout the interview. He’s serious about those."

*DS: The first game was multiplayer only, and now that there is a clear narrative to the game, will there be co-op gameplay for the story mode? Either in the form of two players on the same console or standard online co-op?

JS: We do have a co-op game mode planned, which supports both split-screen and online co-op, but you won’t be playing through the single-player story that way. The campaign is a very personal story about Emmett and his brother, and jamming a few extra players in there would upset that.

If this here dosen't sell you on this game then something is wrong with you're brain and you need to get it checked.

Seriously, not forcing a co-op that shouldn't really be there should be rule number one for developers everywhere. It's nice to see that someone actually "gets" it.

kabala2593d ago

I disagreed with you not because the game will not be awesome. I'm upset about campaign co-op. I don't really care for the side mission stuff.

zero_cool2593d ago (Edited 2593d ago )

it is an awesome game in my personal opinion & if you don't like it then that's your own personal opinion which dose not represent the views & or opinions that other gamers may or may not have towards this game because not everybody likes all the same games as you do we all have our own preferences.

HavenDan2593d ago

So looking forward to this game...wish I had a PS3 :(

There should be another price drop coming soon, so you could have a great back catalog to catch up on. This game is definitely a must buy.


The uncharted and GOW series is epic; no gamer should miss out on it. Don't forget the Infamous, resistance, and killzone series.

HavenDan2593d ago

Good! In that case I'll be picking up a PS3 sooner rather than later, really have wanted to play Uncharted and God Of War and all that.

guitarded772593d ago

Shoot... I'm an early adopter with over 100 retail games and over 80 PSN games and I still have a huge back catalog to catch up on.

Why o why2593d ago


to more good times ahead.
*raises glass*

theres a lot to get through and enough variety and quality to keep you indoors with jrpgs being the only weak area.

cochise3132593d ago (Edited 2593d ago )

This game just looks beyond awesome. I'm happy this one has a single player mode. The story and multiplayer looks superb so far.

Septic2593d ago

I can't wait for this! SHould be amazing.

lelo2play2593d ago

I find it funny when a developer says it's only possible on the PS3... i bet it could be possible on the PC.

CGI-Quality2593d ago (Edited 2593d ago )

Did you actually read the article?

OT: I'm not as hyped for this game as other PS3 exclusives, but I definitely have my eyes on it.

BeastlyRig2593d ago (Edited 2593d ago )
