In an interview with UGDB, Stig Asmussen, Game Director of God of War III, discussed many topics surrounding the final addition to the God of War Trilogy. One of the statements that made the most impact on us was how Stig clarified that God of War III is only utilizing 50% of the PlayStation 3’s potential power. Now, this was odd to us mainly because of how well the game plays and how crazy good it looks.
When asked if the development team could have gotten more out of the PlayStation 3 for GOWIII, Stig replied with, “Absolutely, we can do much more with it. I don’t know if we are even close to 50% of PlayStation 3’s power at this point.”
When you look back at past titles that claim they’ve used all of the PS3’s power such as Uncharted 2, it makes you wonder what more could have been achieved had the GOW team decided to push the console even further.
Regardless of how much power is being consumer, it’s easy to see that God of War III is going to be an epic game for PlayStation 3 owners to enjoy. Just think, there are only a few days left until release.
