Developers are really starting to unlock the potential of the PlayStation 3.

That's according to Michael Denny, VP of Sony's World Wide Studios Europe. Speaking in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine, Denny applauds third party titles but believes that it's the first party developers that are making games that exemplify the PlayStation brand.

"A big philosophy behind forming Worldwide Studios is that we can have a network of key first-party developers who are able to share ideas, best practice, thoughts - creatively and otherwise," said Denny who pointed out Sucker Punch and Naughty Dog as being prime examples of this philosophy.

"I think the success of these studios is that a lot of them retain their independent views and creativity but lean on each other for support,"

Adding to that, Denny believes the PlayStation 3 still has plenty of life in it, pointing out the addition of the PlayStation Move and 3D support.

"What's exciting is that we're five years into PS3 and developers are really starting to push PlayStation to its full potential... Then you later on top of that Move launching, then you layer onto that the potential of 3D." said Denny.

"It's exiting times to be involved in PlayStation."
