Eidos Holding Back PS3 Titles Until 2008

Are game companies holding back their PS3 titles until the install base grows? Apparently, at least one developer is. Eidos Interactive admits to holding back PS3 titles until more consoles sell.

More info inside.

As part of a statement released alongside the companys interim results for the six months ended December 31 2006, CEO Jane Cavanagh said, “We believe that PlayStation 3 will be a successful platform, and are developing technology and products for this console.

“However, as we do not believe that the installed base will be high enough until the second half of our 2008 financial year, most of our major product releases on the PlayStation 3 platform are not scheduled before that date.”

The worst part about strategies like these are the fact that not many PS3 games are being released at the moment. If there were more PS3 games to choose from, gamers might not be so reluctant to buy it. At the moment, the majority of people I’ve talked to that plan to purchase a PS3 have decided to wait until more games are released, as there are only a couple games they would purchase now.

If developers hold off their PS3 titles and gamers hold off on their PS3 purchase until more titles hit the market, where are PS3 sales going to come from?

Things that make you go “hmmm…”

    hmmm.

    Companies should take bigger risk. If you think you have a good game that people are going to buy the install base shouldn’t matter. Like D’Juan said if they keep holding back titles and gamers are holding off buying a PS3 until more games come out. Where are the PS3 sales going to come from.

    This is getting a bit much more subjective, but I a lot prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has much more flair, and some cool functions like ‘Mixview’ that let you rapidly see associated albums, songs, or other users associated to what you’re listening to. Clicking on a single of those will center on that item, and an additional set of “neighbors” will occur into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also good fun, letting you discover other people with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to some playlist developed depending on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which can also be enjoyable. Individuals concerned with privacy are going to be relieved to know it is possible to prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits should you so select.

    Could I make a suggestion? I feel youve got something great right here. But what if you added one or two links to some website that backs up what you’re saying? Or maybe you could give us some thing to look at, some thing that would connect what youre saying to some thing tangible? Only a suggestion.
