Sucker Punch: No PS3, No inFamous
We've heard similar refrains before from developers who have worked exclusively with the PlayStation 3; something along the lines of, "this can only be done on the PS3."
Now that inFamous is a mere two weeks away (and those of you who have pre-ordered at GameStop should've already played the demo), Sucker Punch employees are handing out a lot of interviews. They often speak at length about the very involved development process, and in the latest talk with Giantbomb.com, one of the team members says quite clearly at the start of the video- "PS3's the only place we could've made this." Feel free to watch the trailer to hear what else the guys have to say; it's definitely worth your time. Besides, there's plenty more gameplay scenes to drool over, too. But the aforementioned statement is what has the Internet talking - this typically happens when a professional says the PS3 can do something the Xbox 360 can't - and the controversy continues to rage. But Sucker Punch seems convinced that the piece of hardware they have chosen is special; they call it a "very deep well" that they "haven't seen the bottom of yet," and because of this, it's a "pleasure" to work with. Now, your imagination and creativity is the limit because the hardware isn't the "roadblock" it used to be. The sky's the limit!
With everything we've seen of inFamous, we've no doubt it'll be another awesome PS3 exclusive. And is it really a coincidence or a Sony conspiracy that these exclusive developers are praising the PS3's significant technical power? ...seems unlikely. Seems they just like working with the most powerful console available.
