SCEA president Jack Tretton says that the phenomenal success of the PS2 has given gamers "unrealistic" expectations for its next-gen console, in an interview with EGM.
"Because we're in that leadership position, there are a lot of expectations thrust upon us and some of them are a little unrealistic," Tretton says in the interview.
"If we were a distant third in the platform race, people would have a warm spot in their hearts for the good old days of PlayStation and they'd actually root for
Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has revealed he's planning a "down and dirty" visual style for the eighth game in the series, citing Epic's Gears of War as the "look" he's aiming for.
