PS3 devs starting to push console to full potential, says Sony

Sony’s vice president of Worldwide Studios Europe Michael Denny has claimed that PlayStation 3-exclusive developers are already starting to push the company’s flagship games console to its full potential.

Chatting with the folks at OPM, Denny revealed that one of the key components in the success of its in-house talent boils down to the relationship between major studios, who chip in to help each other out while maintaining their independent views and creativity.

"A big philosophy behind forming Worldwide Studios is that we can have a network of key first-party developers who are able to share ideas, best practice, thoughts – creatively and otherwise,” he commented.

In particular, the executive highlighted the relationship between Sony stable mates Naughty Dog and Sucker Punch, responsible for the likes of Uncharted 2: Among  Thieves and inFamous, respectively.

"I think the success of these studios is that a lot of them retain their independent views and creativity but lean on each other for support," explained Denny.

"What’s exciting is that we’re five years into PS3 and developers are really starting to push PlayStation to its full potential… Then you later on top of that Move launching, then you layer onto that the potential of 3D."

"It’s exiting times to be involved in PlayStation," enthused Denny.
