Shinji Mikami: “No Real Difference” Between Xbox One and PS4
The Evil Within director doesn’t see the point of making two versions of the game.
Tango Gameworks founder, industry veteran and director for the upcoming psychological horror title The Evil Within Shinji Mikami has expressed his opinion on the Xbox One and PS4, stating that “There’s no real difference between them” when speaking to EDGE Magazine.
“We only need one console. Why do I have to make two versions of a game? And when Xbox One was first announced it had lower specs than PS4, but now they’re almost identical. So either will do.”
That’s not the only area the Xbox One differed from the PS4. Originally, the console was to feature a daily online authentication process, a digital library that could be shared among friends and region-locking. Now the only real differences are in the exclusives and online services, aside from the PS4 being slightly superior in some technical aspects.
The Evil Within is scheduled to release in 2014 for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
