Quantic Dream: Sony Has "The Best Studios In The World"
It's no surprise that Quantic Dream boss David Cage thinks highly of Sony, and it's encouraging to know he has no plans to sever that partnership.
After the tremendous success of Heavy Rain, many have asked if Cage and Co. will start developing games for the Xbox 360 and other platforms, but the answer is clear: no. In speaking to CVG, Cage said Sony "trusted" his team from the start and thus far, the global electronics corporation has never let them down:
"Being a part of a company with what are probably the best studios in the world is something really pleasant for us. We're happy to continue this relationship and create content for the PlayStation brand. But they fund our projects, so we're staying exclusive to PlayStation.
I am very loyal in general - or I try to be. I know that trusting me is always a big risk and when people do, I feel like I owe them something. It's not just because I want to thank them, though. We have a relationship that works, we're excited by the platform - we think it's the best platform out there. We're glad to continue to work this way."
He also said they routinely talk to other Sony-exclusive studios like Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Guerrilla, and Media Molecule. "We talk about technology, best practice, how we do things - we share experience and expertise. I think that's of real value for everybody." For our part, we're fairly certain Quantic Dream can utilize their talents best on the PS3, so we're fine with this decision.
