Oh Crytek how you love to just talk and talk.
"I think the next console generation is going to be more a mix of the top devs - they'll be much more PC-driven this time around," Yerli told us in issue 97, on sale now. "In fact, I believe - oh, I can't talk more about that. Let's say this: PC devs will be much more comfortable than last gen console devs.http://www.oxm.co.uk/51150/crytek-pc-devs-have-the-advantage-over-xbox-360-devs-on-next-gen-consoles/
"Last gen, the move from PS2 to PS3, or Xbox to Xbox 360, for many devs was back-breaking," he explained. "But for us going to Xbox 360, we had to work backward, we had to bring down all our tech to make it happen. As opposed to finding ourselves in that situation with today's PC... I'm already talking too much."
Yerli went onto state that "the next gen consoles are, for the first time ever, not going to be beyond the PC generation". This tallies with what we know of PS4, which CVG has deemed a "posh-ish PC". Microsoft has yet to reveal specifications for its next console, of course, but you're welcome to knock your head against some rumoured specs.Crytek
While I do hate how they keep poking at the situation lately and seem to try drum up some drama there is at least some truth to what he says. This is the first time consoles and PC have ever been (or will be) so alike. No longer will PC devs have to make as much compromises to get there stuff on consoles, it's not as big a downgrade or architectural change as before.
Personally I look forward to seeing how multiplat games get on next gen. They will truly benefit the most I think
