Sony Encourages Internal Studios To Support Move, 3D
If you haven't tried Killzone 3 in 3D, you're seriously missing out. Guerrilla's latest also offers PlayStation Move support.
And this support is something Sony wants to see more of from development teams. IndustryGamers asked PlayStation software senior brand manager Scott McCarthy if there's a "mandate" in place for internal studios to look at 3D and Move. McCarthy replied that while Sony isn't forcing any of their teams to utilize both 3D and Move, it's still encouraged:
"Whenever we come out with new technology, whether it's Move or 3D, there is always the request that goes out to the [development] teams that says, 'Hey it would be great if you could implement it.' We know that adds to the layer of not only the marketing message we have access to but it also adds to the availability of different Sony channels that we can broadcast our message out to."
It's Sony's technology so for the most part, it's up to them to deliver it into the homes of consumers. By having their own teams produce titles that support both 3D and Move, it puts the new technologies on display more often and in turn, should result in more support from third-party developers. 3D games like KZ3 and Gran Turismo 5 are intense, and Move-compatible titles offer a whole different way to experience the action.
We're definitely looking forward to the future.
