Sony ‘regrets’ PS3 problems, but has Moved on

Sony has admitted that the PS3 – Ken Kutaragi’s epitaphic console of extraordinary power and complexity – can be a big challenge to develop for.

”We [developers] were one of these people that had to go work on PS3 hardware - that was very challenging,” he says.

”It was incredibly powerful, but when we learned about the specifications when the hardware was almost done, we found it was so difficult to program on.”

I'm glad Shuhei Yoshida is Sony Worldwide Studios boss. The idea of bringing First and Second party's together to share tech, ideas, and exchange thoughts on game design has worked well and benefited everyone involved producing amazing PS3 Exclusives such as Uncharted 2, God of War 3, Heavy Rain, soon GT5, Infamous 2, LBP2, The Last Guardian, etc.

Its great to see devs come together in a effort to utilize the PS3's power. And I'm glad that he said the next PlayStation will have all of the developer's input. With 3D, Move, and PS3's line up it Looks like Sony has a bright future ahead of them.

its ok, really. i think we're good with our popular blockbuster games like halo reach and uncharted2, granturismo, mario galaxy, gears2, kz3 etc. thanks for the advice though. ill keep it in mind when shopping for my next console, the console with tons of awesome exclusives for $300 or the gaming rig that you have to dump $1000+ dollars into to play the same multiplatform titles we have, just at 1080p 60fps lol.

never really got involved the the pc gaming, i will enjoy your stay : )

@ conloles

wish I woulda got that security feature on mine. The only feature I was eligible on my account is the 5 fingers to the face package if less than 1080p.

Ocelot5253022d ago


oh yeah killzone 2 in 1080... oh wait there is no killzone 2 for PC, no uncharted, no mgs4, ...

PirosThe4th3022d ago

That's why you end up stopping being a fanboy and get both a ps3 and a gaming pc.... XD

evrfighter3022d ago

lol kz2 would have been laughed out of the pc gaming world if it came to pc with those controls.

Tomb Raider was never popular on the pc

as a pc gamer I own mgs4 and shut it off during a cutscene that hit the 30 minutes mark and never touched it since.

trust me pc gamers aren't missing a thing :)

I see what you did there

IdleLeeSiuLung3022d ago

What about this one?

"”But because Move is a completely new interface, that no one has experienced yet, it’s a great opportunity for developers to take advantage of this new capability.”"

A completely new interface? ... or a Wii rip off?

Granted it is supposedly more precise system than Wii Motion Plus, but still... completely new?

georgeenoob3022d ago

Well unlike all the PS3 fanboys that flood this site even Sony themselves can accept that PS3 has problems.

xYLeinen3022d ago

Well. Is good that the industry got a challenge, and in reward ps3 owners across the world got some pretty awesome exclusive titles and more upcoming.

I really hope they go with a upgrade of the cell processor in the PS4 since the developers have "matured" and know how to program for it now. More than 3-4 years at least..

You didn't read the article did you?

No reason to even bother thinking about the devs that had problems with the architecture, when other devs have gave us God of War 3, Uncharted 1 & 2, Valkyria Chronicles, inFAMOUS, Killzone 2, Demon Souls, Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance 1 & 2, Heavy Rain, LittleBigPlanet, and hoards of other stellar games. Not to mention the PS3's upcoming games list is delectable.

I got my spoon and fork ready.

I love how gabe "fat ass" newell had to eat the only thing in the world he didnt want to eat... That was a large slice of humble pie! How does it taste gabe? Does it feel good to eat your words? Didn't think so, next time dont be such a fanboy and remember that when all of those microsoft marketing dollars dry up you have no one but yourself to blame... BTW BBC I am a subscriber of yours on youtube, great videos!!!

I don't see myself getting into this but I really wonder how good it is going to be. ATM it looks as though it has few flaws.

I like Yoshida. He understands the power of software and I think thanks to him we will probably see more quality titles for Move and the Wii and Kinect.

jneul3022d ago

what flaws?? from what I have seen ps move is so much better than kinect or wiimote, all the people who have experienced it are calling it the most precise controller with augmented reality

RememberThe3573022d ago

That's why I said "few flaws", not "a few flaws." Move is definitely at the top if the motion control food chain.

PooEgg3022d ago

I don't really think we can judge Move or Kinect until they actually hit the market, but I am currently not interested in either product. As for the Wii I hate the control so much. In my opinion, the Wii controller ruins most non-first party games. More often then not the control sucks and I end up getting frustrated and shelving the game permanently (although the games that can be played with the classic controller are sometimes okay). It simply isn't fun to play with the Wii controller for long periods, unless you are entertaining friends. If however Move or Kinect can improve upon what Wii started, and we don't trade off quality for casual I might change my mind. But until I see it for myself, I won't jump on board.
