Well, that didn’t last long. After the recent E3 show in LA, video game fans have been hot for the rumours surrounding the next generation of consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
But one industry legend has poured cold water over the excitement.
Speaking exclusively to VGC, PlatinumGames (Bayonetta, Nier: Automata) studio head Atsushi Inaba dubbed the upcoming new Xbox and PlayStation “more of the same”.
Inaba says “It’s OK. And by that I mean, I’m sure that things will move faster, graphics will be better and maybe it will be easier with less wait times… that’s good for the consumer…”
He continues “… 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.” Ouch.
