Ubisoft "Very Pleased" With Both Next-Generation Consoles
We have to wait until May 21 for the new Xbox unveiling, but we know analysts, journalists, developers and gamers seem to love the PlayStation 4.
Ubisoft boss Yannis Mallat wants to be an equal opportunity optimist, as he says his company is "very pleased" with both systems on tap (presumably for later this year).
According to a recent CVG interview, Mallat said the PS4 and Xbox 720 will open up new development opportunities in regards to creativity and innovation. We're hoping that's the case, although we're not necessarily anticipating a lot of innovation with this year's cross-generation title, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. But we could be wrong; who knows? Said Mallat:
"We're very pleased with each new system when they eventually come because it comes with its own opportunities for creativity, innovation and new things. We really rely on our creatives to do that."
We've heard similar statements from other developers, but they haven't compared the two machines in question yet. Obviously, that's because we all have to wait for Microsoft's official unveiling of the new Xbox. But we'd be willing to bet that Microsoft's machine boasts the same sort of accessibility the PS4 features...
