Factor 5 Working On PS3 EDI Games
Factor 5, the company behind the Rogue Squadron series on the Gamecube and former Nintendo second party developer, is currently developing Lair for the PS3 and two downloadable game
When Factor 5 finishes their first PS3 game in 2007, company president Julian Eggebrecht is looking forward to making some smaller games for the PS3 download service:
"I'm really looking forward to 2007, because we're going to finish Lair, which is my biggest concern right now, but also, I'm really looking forward to working on a couple of smaller projects [for PlayStation 3], with the so-called EDI [E-Distribution Initiative] from Sony, which I think has huge potential, and personally as a director, I think it's one of these things that we in the creative community need a little bit.
"People who work on these two and a half year, three year projects have a chance, even within an organization like Factor 5, which usually works on these large games, to work on something small again."
Factor 5 was responsible for the Turrican series, a side-scrolling action game that appeared on everything from the C64 to the NES. Eggebrecht did not specify what kind of games they may create once Lair is finished.
