North Talks Uncharted PS3 Exclusivity, Next-Gen Hopes
Once you play Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception on your TV next week, you'll understand why the critics have once again gone nuts for another Naughty Dog masterpiece.
Of course, you have to own a PlayStation 3. This fact means worldwide sales potential is virtually sliced in half, as most big productions these days are multiplatform and release for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. But the developers have made it clear why their vision only works on Sony's platform and now, in a new T3 interview, Nathan Drake voice actor Nolan North echoes those sentiments.
"One of my first questions was why isn’t this multiplatform? You’d sell 25 million copies if it was multiplatform. The problem is only the PS3’s processor is powerful enough to be able to handle all the information. Naughty Dog pushes that processor to the break, it pushes the PS3 to its limits. Because they are so passionate about the project, I would certainly hope that in the next generation of consoles that Uncharted would get the nod to continue to push those boundaries."
No, he's not a programmer; we assume he's just repeating what he has heard. As for Uncharted in the next generation (PS4), North said he's "not really privy to that type of information" but if a new machine does come about, he hopes the franchise has an opportunity to once again blow people away. It'd be about taking the Uncharted experience to "another level." ...I'm sorry, but is that possible?
