PlayStation 3 is the best console in the world gushes Quantic Dream boss David Cage, and Sony has the best first party studio’s anywhere.
All this praising comes as word broke that Cage and his team would be developing yet another PS3 exclusive, hot on the heels of Heavy Rain’s both critical and financial successes.
“The relationship on Heavy Rain has been fantastic,” he told CVG. “They trusted us from day one, supported us all the way through. It was really a very risky project [for them] and they never let us down.”
“Being a part of a company with what are probably the best studios in the world is something really pleasant for us. We’re happy to continue this relationship and create content for the PlayStation brand. But they fund our projects, so we’re staying exclusive to PlayStation.
I am very loyal in general – or I try to be. I know that trusting me is always a big risk and when people do, I feel like I owe them something. It’s not just because I want to thank them, though. We have a relationship that works, we’re excited by the platform – we think it’s the best platform out there. We’re glad to continue to work this way.”
Cage also loves the interaction between Sony internal studios, and adding he was even asked to give advise on modern FPS titles. He did say, however, that it was not Killzone 3.
“We talk to Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Guerrilla, Media Molecule – all these great studios,” he added. “We talk about technology, best practise, how we do things – we share experience and expertise. I think that’s of real value for everybody.”
