Platinum Studio Head Doesn’t Believe Next-Gen Hardware Will Be As “Ground-Breaking” As The Switch
"that’s just my personal opinion" by Liam Doolan 11 hours ago One person who has been struggling to get excited about Sony and Microsoft's next-generation hardware is PlatinumGames' studio head, Atsushi Inaba. Here's what he had to say in a follow-up with VGC recently: I don’t want to sound like, ‘hey, I know everything about…

” that’s just my personal viewpoint”

Someone who has actually been struggling to get delighted about Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation hardware is PlatinumGames’ studio head, Atsushi Inaba. Here’s what he needed to state in a follow-up with VGC just recently:

I do not wish to sound like, ‘hey, I know everything about the new consoles and they’re boring’. With the information that I have now, I have not seen any exceptionally huge surprises.

So, what’s a surprise for him? Apparently it’s the “ground-breaking” style of the Nintendo Switch. He goes on to explain how the hybrid system opened “new” possibilities, much like the Game Young boy and DS generations.

While Inaba thinks Microsoft and Sony could still have a game-changing quality in their next-gen systems, at the minute it seems to be everything about enhancements, such as visual enhancements:

when you’re simply seeing graphical enhancements or just ‘quicker, larger’ … clearly it’s nice, however it does not have that very same inventive quality that actually surprised me with previous consoles.

Back in his more youthful years, he recalls how graphics had more of an upgrade, which individuals were “blown away” by each gen. One emphasize for him was the leap from Super Nintendo to PlayStation.

While the head of Platinum mores than happy developers “have better technology to work” with, he feels it’s a perceivable future:

There’s not the extreme surprise or the unforeseen quality that I felt from the leap to previous consoles. Now I see the announcements and I think, ‘oh, that’s cool’ and after that the next minute I believe, ‘hmmm … what should I see on Netflix tonight?’
