Insomniac Says PS3 Still Hasn’t Hit its Max

Naughty Dog may have claimed to have already maxed out the PlayStation 3, but Resistance and Ratchet and Clank developer Insomniac has stated that they believe that the console will remain untapped for a few more years. Much like EA’s comments regarding the machine, Insomniac is confident that the PlayStation will last the test of time and only improve in quality.

Insomniac’s senior community manager, James Stevenson, has said it could take another two to three years before developers truly start to max out the PS3:

“There’s always ways we can become more efficient. The PlayStation platforms are built with a very high ceiling and I think that’s part of the success Sony has had in creating these platforms with really long life spans,”

The first couple of years are all about developers getting games up and working. You see what Naughty Dog has had the chance to do in the past two years. You’ve seen what we’ve been able to do in that time. This is where it gets exciting.

The PS3 still feels like a young system and I feel like it’s finally hitting its prime. You’ve got the Slim, it’s at a good price point now and sales are really picking up.

I still think you’re not going to see the PS3 really maxed out for another two to three years. We’re using all of the PS3 right now, but you can always be more efficient in the way you use it.”

Insomniac’s latest game, Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time, is due out on November 6. Check out PlayStation LifeStyle’s review here.
