PS3 development no longer an issue for Bethesda

Developing titles for PlayStation 3 is no longer an issue for the team behind The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, it seems.

Bethesda, like many other developers, once noted Sony’s current home console to be a bit of a pain to develop for in comparison to other consoles. That’s no longer the case though, according to studio lead artist Mike Carofano.

“I don’t think that’s an issue anymore,” he said, speaking on the development of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim during an interview with IncGamers. “This is our third game on PS3 so we’ve got a lot of experience about how that console works and how to make the most out of it.”

He added: “The key is to take advantage of the PS3 in a different way than we would the Xbox 360 or the PC.”

Let’s hope Skyrim offers more moments of brilliance than glitches seen in predecessor Oblivion when it launches for PS3, as well as Xbox 360 and PC on November 11.
