It won’t arrive on PlayStation 3 until later, which means it could include support for the PS3’s virtual world Home service and the system’s Achievements-like system called trophies.
Home was one of Phil Harrison’s babies at Sony, where he served as head of worldwide studios until a couple of months ago. He always seemed very proud of what Sony could accomplish with Home. But it didn’t happen while he was there.
I figured that now that he’s president of Atari’s parent company, Infogrames, he might have some insight on whether “Alone in the Dark” could support Home and incorporate trophies later this year.
“If the libraries are available, then yeah, I would hope that the PS3 version can take advantage of that,” he told me last week.
No Home guarantees yet, readers. Not even from Phil Harrison.
