Motorstorm Apocalypse Director Praises PS3 Capabilities

June 11, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

MotorStorm 3 has finally been unveiled under the official title ‘MotorStorm Apocalypse’. The game’s director has recently given his thoughts on how the PlayStation 3 is taking a big step forward with 3D and also praises how all the other attributes which Sony’s console can utilize will “blow games wide open”.

During an interview with VG247, Evolution Studios’ Matt Southern stated when responding to a question about MotorStorm Apocalypse showing off the 3D capabilities of the PlayStation 3:

And we see 3D as being something that can fundamentally transform lots of different types of games.And not just visually, but it is something that can actually change the gameplay experience. I mean, the way I look at it is that one day – however far away it is – games will be fully immersive 3D. And we are not talking about that gimmicky VR stuff. We are talking about completely believable virtual worlds.

Matt added:

And one of the biggest steps towards that is some of the stuff that the PS3 can do now. Not just 3D, but motion tracking and head tracking and the computer vision stuff with PlayStation Eye. That combination of technologies is just going to blow games wide open. So we’ll see!

MotorStorm Apocalypse is currently scheduled for a release next year. For more on the game, check out PlayStation LifeStyle’s reveal of the racer.
