Cage: We're not crazy with our finances

Why you won't find any Ferraris in the Quantic Dream car park

While speaking about the studio's latest game Beyond: Two Souls, David Cage has revealed a little about how Quantic Dream manages its money, and why there are no sports cars in the car parks.

"It's a little bit more expensive," he told CVG when asked about how the latest game's budget compared to Heavy Rain.

"I don't know if the budget is public but it's been a very, very reasonable price. We do very complex games, but I don't think they're very expensive compared to others out there."

"We don't do anything crazy with the finances, we pay correctly but we don't have sports cars, boats or the rest of it"

Beyond is an ambitious PlayStation 3 project starring Hollywood actors Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page and using totally new tech.

"The engine is completely different. We have built it from scratch. The project is cheaper because we've got better at what we do. We're very tools-centric and we pay close attention to our costs. We don't do anything crazy with the finances, we pay correctly but we don't have sports cars, boats or the rest of it. We run the company very seriously."

Cage made a recent appearance at Sony's PlayStation 4 reveal, showing off some new tools that allowed for the reaction of ultra realistic faces and expressions.

"If I showed you what we're doing with the PS4 you would be amazed. It's really surprising. It's another world."
