Peter Molyneux has moved on from Microsoft to head up the, frankly genuinely exciting, 22 Cans development team. But despite his Microsoft loyalties, he worries for Sony.
He says, "What I worry about, with their corporate pressure and the pressure on costs, I worry about the ability to do that," by 'that' he is referring to "The way I always feel with Sony is that if they double down on those first party developers, give them the headroom to be inventive and be creative, especially when it comes it any next generation platform, then they could pull lots of rabbits out of the hat." Rabbits and hats.
He continues, "More and more - and this is a personal thing - I just don't know where they're going in hardware terms. They had the Move, but it wasn't as early as the Wii and it wasn't as innovational as Kinect. They seem to be third in line in that race. I have expected, every single press conference for the last year, Sony to bring out this magic rabbit out from a huge hat and say, 'Aha, world. You really don't realize what's going on.' And I do worry about them."
