Mars' lead platform is the PS3, but not for the fun of it


A studio not named Valve believes the PlayStation 3 is a “complicated” platform.

In an interview with That Video Games Blog, Spider Games CEO Jehanne Rousseau said the lead platform for the upcoming role-playing game Mars is the PlayStation 3, however, it’s not because they're in love with the shiny black box. According to Spider brass, the choice was made because “the PS3 is a very complicated platform.”

“[If] we concentrate now on all the difficulties and strong points of this console and if we can go over them, the other platforms should be simple to approach.”

Sounds like Spider Games has the right idea: start hard, and then take it easy. Interestingly, Rousseau wouldn’t say if Mars would truly hit another platform. The CEO did comment that Spider didn’t want to swindle Xbox 360 owners with a crappy port if a publisher desired to take the game to the platform.  

[UPDATE: I took out the Valve quote. I decided it was too much.]
