EA LA Describes "Exotic, Tough" PS3 Hardware

PS3 hit the market over a year ago, but it remains a challenge for some devs.

EA LA has explained why it decided to cancel the PS3 version of the highly-anticipated real-time Xbox 360 and PC strategy game, Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3.

EA LA producer Amer Ajami explained to Videogamer.com at a recent press event that the PS3 is "very exotic and tough to develop for."

Ajami continued, "We actually announced a PS3 version early on but that was when we were still doing a lot of technical exploration of the architecture. PS3 is a very powerful system but as you guys know, it’s very exotic and tough to develop for and our engine really at the time wasn’t designed for PS3."

EA said last month that the PS3 version of the game was "on hold."

Ajami brought up the possibility that EA LA could return to the PS3 sometime in the future, although nothing is confirmed.
