Microsoft’s Albert Penello Responds to Former People Can Fly Dev’s PS4 Claims: “Don’t Know ‘Em”
This despite the fact that the developer worked on Xbox 360 exclusive Gears of War: Judgment.
Recently former People Can Fly creative director Adrian Chmielarz, who has worked on games like Painkiller, Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment, tweeted about how “all next-gen AAA devs” he talked to said there was a 50 percent power difference. Guess which console he ruled in favour of (pic courtesy of GAF)?
It wasn’t long before Director of Product Planning Albert Penello was asked about the 50 percent power difference that Chmielarz was touting, which then prompted this exchange:
When pressed for a further reply, the response was surprising.
Which is very interesting considering that People Can Fly worked on the Xbox 360 exclusive title Gears of War: Judgment under Epic Games’ supervision. Despite the studio closing, the man who leads planning for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Kinect isn’t aware of the developer that created a high-profile exclusive released in 2013 itself? Regardless of your thoughts on the PS4 versus Xbox One hardware, it’s hard to deny how strange that statement must be.
What are your thoughts on the matter? Will it influence which console you buy when the PlayStation 4 releases on November 15th in the US and the Xbox One releases on November 22nd worldwide? Let us know below.
