Mark Rein Interview


GameInformer has an interview with Epic’s vice president, Mark Rein. Remember that Epic creates Gears of War for the 360 and Unreal Tournament 3 for the PS3, PC, and 360.

What I liked best is what he says about the PS3. It sums up my mood about it pretty well.

GI: Do you think Sony’s in trouble?

Rein: No, god, no. Somebody asked me that earlier, and I was like, “What a ridiculous question.” People, just give them a break for crying out loud. People think it’s bad if they can’t ship enough, and then they think it’s bad if they can ship enough. It’s like, which is it? Either they can’t fulfill your order or they can, and they’re both good. Being able to fulfill your order is good news, right? Go out and buy your PS3 now. You can get one. That’s miraculous. They sold more PS3s in North America than Microsoft sold Xbox 360s in its same period of time, and they clearly aren’t going to have the shortage problems that Microsoft had. So as long as people are willing to pay the price for the machine—and I’m sure lots of people are—I think they’re hopefully in a good situation.

There’s actually more in there. Go and have a look, it’s a good read.

    Finally someone, who people listen to (not some digg dope), speaks out, what we here already know!

    The PS3 is GREAT!

    Nice to hear devs saying the same thing the rest of us ( PS3 fans) have been saying. I can hear it now, ‘Mark Rein’s a Sony fanbot!’

    Of course he is, since his biggest game in the past 3 years was Gears of War :D

    Okok, I dunno how much, or if he was at all, involved in GeoW but UT3 is still not here…

    But have fun with it… Not my cup of tea (anymore)
