Frank Gibeau, ladies and gentlemen.
Apple and EA executives are both known to make some ridiculous statements. One claims micro-transactions not taking off are due to the stubbornness of consumers, the other believes that its cloud storage platform is completely secure. Of course, Apple also said that its iPhone 6 was capable of running games at higher resolutions than the Xbox One and PS4 (which itself is a dicey statement).
We didn’t expect EA’s mobile division executive Frank Gibeau to follow it up by saying that the iPhone 6’s specs compare to the PS4 and Xbox One.
Speaking to Games Industry International, Gibeau said, “With the retina display and the improved processor, combined with the Metal [graphics] capabilities and 128 GB of memory, that gets you to a device that’s on par [sic] with next-generation consoles. That’s moving perfectly into our strike zone.”
Is he talking about the same consoles that have 8 GB of RAM apiece and custom eight core AMD CPUs within? What are your thoughts on this madness? Let us know below.
