Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima unsure of PS3 development

Hideo Kojima unsure of PS3 development

"Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has stated in a recent interview with Boom Town that he is not sure if developers will be able to live up to Sony's expectations on PlayStation 3.

Kojima told he believed developers might be able to do more with their budgets on Nintendo's Revolution console, and that starting Xbox 360 development might also be easier than PlayStation 3.

Concerns over the difficulty of programming for PlayStation 3 have been a hot topic in the lead up to the next generation of games consoles, with Sony seemingly unashamed to have a platform whose intricacies could act as a filter of lesser devcos. However, speaking at the PlayStation 3 unveilling ahead of E3 a fortnight ago, where real-time footage was shown of PlayStation 3 performance using the Unreal engine 3, the demo developers' remarks included that they had found the PS3 easy to develop for.

Full details of both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 have now been announced, but Nintendo has avoided showing any footage of what is expects to compare to the console or revealling specs of the machine's innards. Nintendo shares next-generation partnerships with long time allies ATI, which developed the Xbox 360 GPU, and IBM, which co-developed the PlayStation 3's Cell processor.

Kojima is yet to begin development on PlayStation 3."

So far there hasn't really been any complaints from PS3 developers. This is the first I have seen and as the article explains, Kojima has not used the PS3 development system.
