Naughty Dog using “30-40%” of PS3′s power
In this ThreeSpeech interview, Naughty Dog’s Richard Lemarchand has said the Uncharted developer’s currently working with less that half PS3′s available grunt.
“We think we’re probably only using 30 or 40 percent of the power of the PS3 right now, and there’s this great, untapped potential,” he said.
“All third-party developers can get the Edge libraries for free and are going to be able to use them in their own ways, to get more and more and more out of the PS3 over the years.”
Edge is a system of tools developed by elite members of the Naughty Dog coding Mafia.
“There’s a set of tools called Edge that were developed on the Naughty Dog premises, actually, by a group of very, very senior games programmer, some from Naughty Dog and some from elsewhere,” Lemarchand added. “I think it’s tremendously visionary of Sony to make these tools, which are largely low-level libraries.”
