Speaking to CVG senior community manager for Insomniac James Stevenson has said it could be another two to three years before devs truly start to max out the PS3, much like how it was with the PS2.
“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” said Stevenson.
He went on to say that “The PS3 still feels like a young system… [and] 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.”
