Katamari creator backs single-format drive

It seems to be an argument that is picking up momentum – first EA’s Gerhard Florin calls for a unified single games platform, and then Silicon Knights boss Dennis Dyack backs him up. And now Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi has added his approval to the debate.

Talking to GameSpot at the GameCity ’07 event, Takahashi stated: “In an ideal world, I want to see only one major console being retailed on the market, and everyone actually making games for just one console, and bring the price of that console down from what the three currently cost right now.

“At the moment, I feel that having three next-gen consoles is only as a result of having three different companies that want to maximize their potential and their profits, and I think we should start working together to decrease the power of the market leaders.”

Takahashi was at GameCity to unveil his latest title, the PS3 exclusive Noby Noby Boy.
