Tabata on 3rd Birthday: “We should have made the game for PS3″

Hajime Tabata, director of PSP’s upcoming Parasite Eve entry, The 3rd Birthday, has said that, due to PSP not being the most popular platform in the west, they should have made the game on PlayStation 3.

“We are very much aware of the fact that the PSP is not currently the most attractive or popular console in Europe, but we’ll have to deal with that depressing fact. We should have made the game for PS3, really,” Tabata told VG247 during a recent interview.

“At one point, I was seriously considering that we had opted for the wrong platform,” he added.

“So, we have shaped up the kind of game that is more interesting to experience if we could play it on the big screen. It had a kind of quality that could be enjoyed on a PS3 or Xbox 360 but as we had already made the decision to put it on PSP, we had to stick by it. We had to squash it down to a smaller screen, and that was extremely difficult.”

Like it or not, The 3rd Birthday launches for PSP on March 29, 2011.
