Tekken head Katsuhiro Harada says development at Namco Bandai has definitely been affected by the PlayStation Network's three-week downtime.
Speaking to CVG at the publisher's Dubai showcase last week, Harada-san speculated that removal of PS3 DLC revenues could've hit some developers harder than others.
"Rather than just Tekken, the company as a whole have been affected because of the PSN down time," he said. "Especially for example [Street Fighter head] Ono-san, we heard he couldn't release the download content he originally planned to because of the down time.
"Maybe some other developers out there planned to use some of the profits that came from DLC to further their development, so it probably had some kind of negative impact on that," he added.
"But in terms of Tekken only, there's nothing that really stands out other than fans contacting us to say their worried and can't play online."
Yesterday SCEE finally confirmed that PSN services have started coming back online in Europe.
At the same Dubai event last week, Harada revealed he's working on a CGI Tekken movie.
