Nolan North Explains Why Uncharted Isn’t Multiplatform, Comments On Next Generation Uncharted
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception is one of the biggest games of 2011. If you are a PlayStation 3 owner and if you are not planning to pick up a copy of Nathan Drake’s next crazy adventure, I suggest you take a look at some of the scores it is getting from various respected publications.
If there is one developer who has continuously raised the bar for PS3 games, it has to be Naughty Dog. They showed what they can do with an outdated hardware which is now five years old. Uncharted 3 is looking absolutely amazing, there are no two ways about that.
Obviously this means that any hardcore gamer would absolutely love to own this game. In an interesting interview with T3, Nolan North, the voice behind Nathan Drake explains why this is not the case.
“One of my first questions was why isn’t this multiplatform? You’d sell 25 million copies if it was multiplatform. The problem is only the PS3’s processor is powerful enough to be able to handle all the information. Naughty Dog pushes that processor to the break, it pushes the PS3 to its limits. Because they are so passionate about the project, I would certainly hope that in the next generation of consoles that Uncharted would get the nod to continue to push those boundaries,” he said.
He also hopes that Uncharted will be present on Sony’s next generation PlayStation. “I’m not too sure, I’m not really privy to that type of information but if and when there is another generation of PS3 and they get a bigger processor and greater capabilities, I would hope that Uncharted would have the opportunity to see what they could do and take the gaming experience for the Uncharted fans to another level, ” he stated.
Whether we will see Uncharted on next generation PlayStation is a topic that should be kept for a later date. Right now you should mark the date 1st November in your calendar.
