If you’ve been following Nvidia, then you would know that the GPU manufacturer isn’t very high on next-gen consoles. In fact, the company had stated that it was “no longer possible” for consoles to have better graphics than PC. We decided to speak to Bugbear Entertainment producer Joonas Laakso, who is developing Next Car Game (working title), who has extensive experience developing on both PCs and consoles for his thoughts on the same.

“I don’t know if that’s a very relevant thing to say. I expect our PC and possible (likely) Xbox One and PS4 versions to look very near identical. For me personally, graphics have long since passed the point where I really care anymore; most of them look so nice that I don’t need anything better. Take something like Dishonored: it won’t get substantially better by increasing lighting effects or resolution or particles, let alone polygons.

“It’s more about interesting, unique takes in an artistic sense than just pushing more bits. On the whole I expect all manner of hardware to keep converging and in the not so distant future, the whole notion of hardware will become irrelevant. Nobody will care anymore, it’s just games and screens and experiences.”

Speaking about next-gen consoles, we also asked Laakso if Next Car Game would be taking advantage of the Xbox One’s Cloud gaming feature. “Some sort of cloud streaming is definitely in the future. We have no concrete plans for it yet, though.”

Next Car Game is slated to release in 2014 for PC.
