To quote: Last week, Jeff and I went hands-on with the PS3 version of [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links] October-bound first-person shooter.

All told, we experienced more than two hours of post-apocalyptic action, driving, and exploration in a nuke-shattered world of exquisite visual detail and startling violence.

Afterwards, we spoke with id Software President Todd Hollenshead to discuss what made the legendary DOOM developer shift gears to a story-driven, open-world playground – and to learn more about the mysteries lurking in that sprawling wasteland.

Todd Hollenshead, President, id Software: "You have to sort of experience it, it's very difficult to explain. The megatextures allow us to make the entire world unique. It's all painted and modeled and because we're streaming the textures, we're not really constrained by system memory. We can have completely unique elements throughout the world without costing us performance."

I wanted to pick his brain concerning his friendly rivalry with Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada, his thoughts on PS Vita development, and why he chose inFAMOUS frontman Cole as an exclusive special guest for the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken.

PlayStation.Blog: What made you and Harada face off in the Ono X Harada video?

Yoshinori Ono, Producer, Street Fighter X Tekken: We started a tradition at last year's Comic-con, this kind of a pro-wrestling-style rivalry. The new video is just this year's version of our wacky rivalry.

The game itself has kind of a festival atmosphere, so we didn't want to be too serious about it. We wanted to bring Tekken fans and Street Fighter fans to the same table, and the...
