Sony Funding 'About 40' Downloadable Games 45

Eurogamer is reporting on comments by Sony's Phil Harrison about the e-Distribution Initiative for the PlayStation 3. Apparently they already have 40-some games in development, above and beyond the titles they'll have ready for the console launch. Harrison: "My strategy was to encourage developers to push the machine technically, creatively, artistically — to innovate in lots of different ways. But don't be restricted by ghettoising games into a particular genre, or a particular display mechanic, because what we've seen on other systems tend to be retro 2D games, and we're pushing the 3D capabilities of the PlayStation 3. Plus, the fact that every PS3 has a hard disk drive means that we're not restricted by the size of the download, and that has a huge impact on the kind of game design that you can do,"
