David Cage Shares His Views On PlayStation 4 And Xbox One


David Cage thinks that it is a bit too early to predict a winner this generation. He also talks about the vision for both of these consoles and cites that both console manufacturers have different vision for their product.

In an interview to Gamers.Blogs(France), Cage shares his thought on this new generation.

Every cycle is different, as we saw with the last cycle. While Sony had crushed the competition on the Playstation 2’s cycle, the last cycle saw a rebalancing between the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360, and, more importantly, the emergence of Nintendo’s Wii, which no one saw coming. The next cycle will probably be very different as well. First of all – and that’s no surprise, we’re seeing a very significant increase in the consoles’ power. Graphic quality and realism in games will therefore increase considerably. We also see that it’s more and more about ‘connected’ consoles. The social dimension of games will also become more and more important. By the way, we expect consoles that are more open, to the mobile world in particular, with a systematic inclusion of tablets or phones as a “second screen”.

He also thinks that it is hard to predict a clear winner now.

However, it’s hard to tell whether Sony or Microsoft (or someone else?) will win the cycle. The two manufacturers have visions which are apparently very different, although they also share some important points (such as the importance of the second screen).

So what do you think of his views? Let us know in the comments below.

    tablets or phones as second screens are useless. why bother when the Wii U (and PS4 and PS Vita for that matter) does it better?

    He’s right . I’m surprised he didn’t mention anything about power since that what everyone on the internet keeps bring up. Power is meaningless when it comes to winning a console generation.the ps2 was the weaker console in the 6 generation and won buy a land slide.the 7 generation was won by the Wii and it was the weaker console also and demolished the Xbox 360 and ps3 do anything possible and with the Xbox one trying to get more then gamer to it might just come out as the winner of this generation

      Power is a lot more important now. It means the difference between games being 720p or 1080p. That 8GB of GDDR5 RAM is a big advantage for Sony.
