Creator of Resident Evil Shinji Mikami has stated that there is "no real difference" between the specifications of next-generation consoles.

Reported on The Sixth Axis, Mikami revealed his thoughts in an interview with Edge magazine.

"We only need one console," the Resident Evil creator said.

"Why do I have to make two versions of a game? And when Xbox One was first announced, it had lower specs than PS4, but now they're almost identical. So either will do."

Shinji Mikami currently serves as the director for The Evil Within, an upcoming horror game being developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and next-generation consoles. The game will use id Software's latest graphics engine, id Tech 5.

The plot for The Evil Within centres on the exploits of a detective named Sebastian, who encounters strange occurrences during a mass murder investigation. According to Mikami, the game will return to classic survival horror game roots set by titles like Alone in the Dark and the first Resident Evil.

The Evil Within is scheduled for release next year.
