Cage: Beyond Has Proven The PS3 Is Still A Powerful Machine
Some developers are calling for new hardware, while others are content with what they have.
Take Quantic Dream boss David Cage, for instance. In a recent Game Informer interview, Cage said the PlayStation 3 still has plenty of power left and perhaps more importantly, it enjoys a very large user base. The long and short of it is that Cage is more of an artist than anything else:
"Actually, I am not that interested in technology. I like what it allows me to do on the creative side, but any technology, no matter how good it is, is only a tool. It is the pen to write the book, but not the book. If you have no vision and no idea, the best technology won’t make your game any better, just as the best pen won’t make a great book. But if you have something to say, it gives you the means to say it better."
As for the PS3's capabilities, Cage says his current project - the hotly anticipated Beyond: Two Souls - has allowed his team to see just how powerful the PS3 really is, and he believes gamers "will be surprised at what the console can do." Heck, we're already pretty impressed, aren't we? What might Beyond offer? Well, this is Quantic Dream, after all...
