Play Ten Studios Interview
Play Ten Studios is currently developing a game for the PS3 and PC called The Wall. This game is due early 2008, and it’s a FPS. PS3Land got a chance to interview the Russian company. They seem to have an axe to grind, because they want to “show the religious fanaticism with itâ€™s terrible bigotry and superstition. Often the fundamentalist zealots are ready to devastate the existing world, just to create an ideal one they imagine in itâ€™s place.” The game takes place after a global cataclysm. Which makes me wonder how they’re going to make that fresh and new, because we’ve heard that theme a thousand times before. Ah well.
The interesting part of the interview comes when asked about the console war between the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Play Ten says:
This is a tricky question. From one side, the differences are obvious. Both platforms have certain strong and weak points. But Iâ€™d prefer not to comment on them, to avoid embarking on a next-gen crusade or a holy war between the platforms, or something. Letâ€™s say we chose PS3 after a long research and many hot arguments.
And about the Cell processor they say “Itâ€™s hard to explain, kind of driving a Ferrari after pedaling on a bike for a long time!”. Multiplayer is planned for the game, but downloadable content is not. No word on whether or not multiplayer means on-line or what.
