EA: What Would The PlayStation 4 Even Do?

EA believe that gamers are still happy with the current generation of consoles and doesn’t see how the next generation can majorly improve things.

EA Labels Boss Frank Gibeau discussed with CVG in a recent interview what Sony and Microsoft would be able to do with the next generation of consoles and whether it would be worth it at the moment.

“It’s hard for me to conceive what you would do on a PlayStation 4, the displays are already 1080p, you’re already connected to the internet… You could make it faster, you could have more polys and you could up the graphics a little bit… but at what cost?”

“It’ll be interesting to see how [Sony and Microsoft] think about it in terms of the next generation but it seems to me that customers are happy, and we’re happy to build games on [360 and PS3] right now.”

“The way the business used to run where you had these big console transitions just isn’t happening anymore. They’re much longer, the online capabilities are making the way customers interact within the audience very different from when we went from PSOne to PS2.

“I think that [the age of] big, abrupt change in consoles where we all pile in on top of each other and everything changes overnight is just gone.”

What would you like to see added or improved in the next generation of consoles?
