Atari Declines to Offer PS3 Games in 2006

Atari has decided to hedge its bets by temporarily holding off on developing titles for the PS3, according to a recent interview given to Game Industry. Bruno Bonnell, CEO for Atari said, "It’s just that we’re lacking information about the PS3 at this stage, because we have basically a rough release date and a high retail price point. As far as the Wii and the Xbox 360 go, we’ll be there for this season; for PS3, we’ll probably have to wait a little later in the year before we release some new titles.”

Bonnell then went on to say (very diplomatically) "I think that by deciding to put the PS3 at this price, Sony has chosen to really differentiate itself from the other consoles. The fact that you have Blu-ray, and the fact that it’s HD compatible – all this is driving me to think that Sony is picking up the high-end of the market, the hardcore, passionate fans. There will be a time they can reduce the price and access more people, but clearly that’s a technical choice that Sony has made to be selective on the field at stage one."
