Naughty Dog wants the PS3 to stick around for a while longer

Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells is hoping the PS3 will remain Sony’s main HD platform for another 5-6 years. In an interview with G4, the co-president said the Uncharted developer is getting “pretty comfortable” with the system and is “not itching for new hardware.”

“…we made a very big advancement between the first game and the second game, we’re really tapping into the Cell processor, but there’s more there,” Wells explained. “I would love to keep working on the PlayStation [3] for 5 or 6 more years…I think there’s still a lot to get out of it. We’re not really feeling limited by the hardware, it’s more about the hours of the day and how quickly we want to get the next game out.”

Of the Cell’s power, Wells says, “It really feels that sometimes it’s this bottomless pit of processing power, you find the right kind of job for it and it can just churn through those things so fast, which really helps with a lot of our rendering and post-processing effects.”
