Sierra Spring Break 08: Wii lead SKU on new Crash title

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 28 April 2008 12:59 GMT

Speaking to videogaming247 at the Sierra Spring Break 08 in Mallorca last week, Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant producer Kirsten Forbes said that Wii will be the lead SKU on this, the fifteenth title in the platforming franchise.

“So we decided to lead on the Wii SKU this year,” she said, confirming we weren’t actually lying to you when we wrote this story’s headline.

“Developers normally lead with the lowest common denominator piece of technology, and so although we’re doing PS2 and the Wii and the 360 and the PSP and DS versions of the game, we led with the Wii from a graphics point of view.”

We then asked her if there was going to be a PS3 version, to which she replied, “No”.

However by this time we were intoxicated on free beer and too much sun and didn’t get to ask why. Watch this space on that one.

Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant comes to all the consoles listed above in October.
