Bungie relishing PS3 'challenge'

Former Xbox-only studio says world-class engineer team and Activision support prime it for new formats

Arguably the biggest aspect to Bungie's deal with Activision today isn't that the Halo-creator has signed with the publisher embroiled in an ugly legal spat over treatment of its studios.

No, it's the fact that the once Xbox-exclusive studio has changed focus to a new IP that will be released on multiple formats.

For the past 10 years Bungie has worked solely on Microsoft's Xbox and Xbox 360 platforms - so the switch to multiplatform could present some issues.

We put the question to the studio's community manager Brian Jarrard - will it not be a challenge moving to platforms like PS3?

"Oh, sure - we've been Xbox exclusive for a long time," he said. However he confidently added: "But it's something where we have some of the best engineering folks in the industry on board who are already thinking heard about how our new game universe might manifest itself over various devices."
