Game development time

I'm trying to get an idea of how much time it takes to develop a video game from concept to publication. I'm interested in a Playstation quality type game.

Thanks,

    I'm not sure exactly, but it mostly depends on what kind of game you're trying to develop and how many people are there on your team. For example Quake I was done in about a year and they had around 6-10 people on the team, can't say how many exactly. Like JCarmack once said somewhere that he believes you need to have 3 programmers, 3 artists and 3 level designers to make the best game ever(and so they did, Quake III!) I would say you need 1-2 years. Here, ou can take a look at my game: www.geocities.com/hyperactivegames/ you'll find it somewhere under Games. It took me just a few weeks to develop it by myself since there's not a whole lot of things going on in it, but it's still fun to play. Hope this helped you somehow.
