Evolution Studios has said that it has only managed to scratch the surface of what it is capable of achieving on the PlayStation 3 following its work on the original MotorStorm title.
Speaking during an interview with Videogamer.com, Nigel Kershaw, director of the upcoming sequel MotorStorm Pacific Rift, stated, "We've realised we've just scratched the surface of what we could actually do with the machine. And I'm sure next time around we'll learn a lot more from MotorStorm Pacific Rift."
"The first game pushed the PS3, this is pushing the PS3, our next game is going to push the PS3. It's not so much about pushing the hardware, it's about learning how to use the hardware in the best possible fashion."
"Now we've spent a lot of time with it we're starting to make it sing under the hood," he said, referring to the advantages of having already released a game for the Sony platform.
Kershaw added that developers are slowly starting to unlock the power of the machine as companies begin work on their second or third title for the PS3, commenting:
"Actually the first and second generation of games that we've seen on the PS3 are just people starting to learn how to make great games for it. It's a long race. Now that developers are starting to write their second or third game, they're starting to untap the power that's within there."
MotorStorm Pacific Rift is due out later this year.
