Naughty Dog feeling overwhelmed by the move to next gen, it’s “terrifying”
Naughty Dog is one of Sony’s premier studio and considering the PS3’s convoluted architecture, they have done some miraculous things with it. In an interview with Eurogamer, co-president of Naughty Dog, Even Wells mentioned that they are sceptical of Sony’s next gen console and they will be treading carefully.
“The geek inside you is always excited about a shiny new toy, but then the practicality of it starts to set in: this is going to be a lot of hard work,” he said.
“When you’re going to new technology, every day is a slog, progress is slow and it really takes a different kind of attitude and mentality to get through that kind of push and it’s not right for everybody.”
Christophe Balestra, fellow co-president added, “We made some mistakes with our move from PS2 to PS3 and we won’t make those again. I guess we’ve done it a couple of times!”
He also mentioned that the team isn’t doing anything right now and are on a vacation. Some of them are working on the DLC for Uncharted 3.
“Right now they’re not working that much. Some of them are working mainly on DLC for multiplayer, and a lot of them are on vacation. I think the team’s going to regroup and we’re going to figure out what’s going to be the next move is for that team.”
