Sony Playstation not optimal for developers says Carmack

Anton Shilov writing for reports that John Carmack, the creator of games titles Doom and Quake is not pleased with the effort required to program for Sony PlayStation 3. However, he believes that PS3 will again be the dominate platform:

John Carmack, head programmer at id Software and the man behind many popular three-dimensional games, said in an interview that the PlayStation 3 game console is not as optimal as Microsoft’s Xbox 360, but admitted that Sony Corp. would retain its leading video game console market positions and software developers would be “forced” to program for the PS3.

“PlayStation 3 gives more theoretical power, but what is going to matter is delivering on the games. I do believe that Sony has made a less optimal decision than Microsoft from the perspective of a game developer,” said John Carmack in an interview with G4 television.
