In an interview with Video Game Chronicles at E3, the cofounder of Platinum Games (the devs behind titles like the Bayonetta franchise and Nier: Automata) said that the hardware in the PS5 and Project Scarlett was too by-the-numbers to excite him.
“It’s OK. But it’s more of the same, quite frankly, compared to previous generations. It’s nothing that’s disruptive or super innovative, if you ask me.”
...Inaba goes on to say that he preferred the days when console hardware was based on custom chips that you couldn't get on PC, rather than slightly modified versions of existing components.
I guess this guy is hard to please. I'm still excited. Yea I'm sure it will be another "higher resolution, more framerate" yada yada talk, but innovation comes from the developers. And I think they will find ways to make next gen great. Your thoughts, SW?
