Naughty Dog's Wells: GoWIII Is Worth A PS3 Purchase
You won't find developers of AAA PlayStation 3 exclusives jawing at each other; on the contrary, they really want to support one another.
Take Naughty Dog boss Evan Wells, for instance. Only months after producing what is arguably the best title of the generation in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Wells sat down and played SCEA Santa Monica's God of War III (yeah, be jealous). You would think it'd take a whole hell of a lot to impress someone who oversaw one of the most impressive interactive achievements thus far, but if there's one game that could do it, it's GoWIII. Check out what Wells said over at his Twitter page:
"Finished GOW3 last night! Stunning! No reason not to buy this game if you have a PS3, and if you don't, you should buy one to play it!"
Competition is always healthy, provided those involved are always open to new ideas and are willing to compliment their rivals. And while SCEA isn't really a "rival" for Naughty Dog, they are two different development studios and you can bet they'll cue off each other. Uncharted 2 and God of War III might technically fall into the same category (we'd put one in the "Action" category and one in the "Action/adventure" category), they're two very different experiences. Wells obviously had fun with it; he isn't ignoring what's going on around him. And hey, remember when GoWIII director Stig Asmussen said they were using Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 as visual benchmarks for his game?
Isn't it cool when they all play nice?
