Dynamics' Riley Cooper has endorsed Sony's
Playstation Network as a more viable method of
video-game distribution during
an interview with GamesIndustry.biz. Eidos
previously used Xbox Live to distribute Tomb
Raider Legend and Tomb
Raider Anniversary, and Cooper believes PSN
could be a better service for developers looking
to bypass retail.
very, very interested in digital distribution
and the potential it has," said Cooper, speaking
during GDC Lyon last month. "PlayStation Network
is extremely interesting because it's a more flexible
an in-road with Anniversary on 360, and it was
a full game essentially, but Microsoft is only
slowly increasing requirements and opening up
the constraints of Xbox Live. It's been a slow
process, whereas PSN hasn't been restricted by
size, they've just done Warhawk for example."
Dynamics are currently working on Tomb
Raider Underworld for Microsoft Xbox 360,
Sony Playstation 3 and Games For Windows. Eidos'
acquisition of BlueFish
Media in 2007 compounds the company's commitment
for online distribution of video-games.
