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.
