Braben feels digital titles take just as much effort as other titles

Frontier founder David Braben has told Develop that those who think PSN, WiiWare, and XBLA games don’t take the same amount of effort to create really annoy him.

“One of the things that really annoys me is when people see XBLA, PSN and WiiWare as a dumping ground, in terms of ‘you don’t need to put the same amount of effort in’”, said Braben. Actually, it’s quite the opposite.

“It’s like how novelists approach short stories. It’s a way to try out a radical idea, and quite often a lot of those do become novels later on.

“What I don’t like, is the idea that people can scratch one out at the bus stop, which I’ve overheard at conferences.”

If it was really that easy, we’d be on it.
