Quantic Dream's co-founder on PS3 exclusives and virtual actors

Quantic Dream is one of the few development studios confident enough to deliver an exclusive title for a platform holder. While the majority of developers and publishers have chosen to cover as many formats as possible to cushion the financial cost of game development, Quantic is teaming with Sony on original PlayStation 3 project Heavy Rain.

A tech demo for the title – The Casting – was first shown at E3 in 2006 but since then both companies have remained quiet on the project.

So you were happy to sign the deal as an exclusive – you're not concerned about limiting your market to one home console?

We believe that the PlayStation 3 is going to be extremely successful, as successful as the PlayStation 2. The other point is that when you look at the architecture of the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 you see huge differences and it's extremely difficult to create games of the same visual quality on both platforms.

Even from an economical standpoint, if you really want to give the best shot on both platforms you have to invest far more money than just spending the money on the one platform. Or you have simple ports, which are of less quality.
At Quantic we have high standards and we really want to give our fans the best possible experience with our creations and we didn't want to downgrade any version by porting a game. It was far more important to chose the right machine where we could express ourselves and give it the best shot.

HEAVY RAIN would sell a million alone in EU not to even mention NA/JAPAN

Now you are disappointed since the devs have revealed the massive differences between the 2 consoles:-

"We believe that the PlayStation 3 is going to be extremely successful, as successful as the PlayStation 2.
