Sony Makes It Hard To Develop For the PS3 On Purpose

adeelarshad82 writes “CNet reports on a bizarre comment from Sony’s Computer Entertainment CEO in response to complaints from developers on how hard it is to develop games for the Playstation 3. ‘We don’t provide the “easy to program for” console that (developers) want, because “easy to program for” means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?’ Given that games heavily drive console sales, and the fact that the PS3 is already 8 million units behind the Xbox 360, I think making a developer’s job harder is the last thing Sony needs.”

    Nice blog, I was performing some net browsing and happened onto your blog, I was wondering if you knew your website is rendering strangely in the K-mellon browser. I will see most of it but the graphics are one way or another out of whack. In all probability not a massive issue since basically no one uses it any longer but I am old school and still use it.

    I didn’t even know about that browser. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the tip.
