Sony Computer Entertainment America President Jack Tretton says a growing number of game developers have begun to use the PlayStation 3 console as a lead development platform.

MCV reports that Tretton said in a recent interview that the PlayStation 3 is becoming the lead development platform for an increasing number of developers, citing Burnout Paradise as the first high-profile game for multiple systems that used the PlayStation 3 console as the primary development platform.

“We are now starting to see developers creating games on PS3 and then porting them to other platforms, such as EA’s Burnout Paradise,” Tretton said in an interview with IGN. “Developers are telling us that they are starting to create their games on PS3 first and take advantage of the hardware capabilities and then port down to other platforms so we are seeing tremendous progress from the third party community in terms of what they are able to do with our development kits.”

“You will see some very nice things in 2008 coming from our third party partners in addition to what you will see this holiday,” he added.
