Two well known game developers share their thoughts on next gen consoles.
It’s no surprise that Microsoft earned the ire of gamers everywhere for showing no gameplay footage while heavily emphasizing on Kinect and Xbox One’s multimedia and social capabilities. The only thing they did right was showing the box itself. Sony on the other hand showed off the games and the technology behind the PS4 but not the console itself.
Over the past few months, Sony have taken the lead in terms of positive media reception and several developers have showered praises upon praises on the PlayStation 4. One such developer is Alan Kertz, the lead core gameplay designer on Battlefield 4, who believes that the next generation will belong to Sony.
“I think Gen4 is now Sony’s game,” he tweeted.
On the other hand, id Software’s John Carmack believes that both the PS4 and Xbox One are amazing engineering products.
“They are both solid pieces of engineering. I won’t recommend one over the other at this point,” he said when asked about his opinion on the next generation consoles.
This year’s E3 should be interesting. Microsoft has a lot to prove in terms of actual games and Sony will try to win the audience over by showing off the PlayStation 4 and maybe finally revealing its price point. We will be right there on the floor and update you with the latest happenings.
