The PS4 Pro and Xbox One Scorpio will kick off a new initiative in the console generation concept…a new generation that will end all consoles generations. At this point, both Sony and Microsoft seem to be committed to the iterative console cycle, however Andrea Farid Marsili, who is the Programmer and CEO of Marslit Games, the team behind the upcoming Unknown Fate believes that the iterative console cycle is not the future.
“I don’t think that this is going to be the future. In my opinion PS5 and the next Xbox will have some modularity like interchangeable CPU/GPU,” he said to GamingBolt in an exclusive interview. We also asked him whether Sony and Microsoft took this decision because the current gen consoles are weak. Andrea stated that this is not the case. “I don’t think that the current consoles are weak. The real problem is that people always want more and they want it now, they can’t and don’t want to wait. This is why we see 10GB patches on day one,” he added.
These comments from Andrea certainly seems interesting, specially the statements about the PS5 and next Xbox. If the PS5 and the next Xbox have interchangeable CPU/GPU or different tiers of configuration, it will bring the consoles more in line with PC gaming. However his comments on whether consumers “wanting more and wanting them quickly” is how any consumer oriented industry works. Consumer feedback and wishes results into better products and further progress in technologies. Regardless, it will be interesting to see what Microsoft and Sony will do once the Pro and Scorpio launches.
