95w ago - Sony Content Producer Simon Bramble interviewed Eric Webb of Id Software today, who discussed Doom 3: BFG Edition - the full experience on the PS3 entertainment system!

Below are the details, to quote: Doom 3: BFG Edition is set to launch on PS3 in October of 2012, bringing with it the first two games in the iconic series.

It means you'll be able to play the entire Doom series on PS3 for the first time and see for yourself why many consider these games to be some of the most influential shooters of all time.

We caught up with Eric Webb, producer from game developer id Software, at E3 2012 to talk about how the game has been buffed up for PS3.

PlayStation.Blog: How do you think all three games stand up today on PS3?

Eric Webb, Producer, Doom 3: BFG Edition: I think they all stand up really well. One of the first things we did when we first started work on it was pay attention to how the controls feel.

There€s something about the DualShock 3 controller and its dual analog sticks that feels really good when you€re holding it in a game like this. It gives it a different life and almost makes it an entirely new experience. So I think it€s really cool on PS3.
