Shinji Mikami On PS4: “Finding Our Feet”

The Resident Evil creator and his team have had their first run at the PS4 and Mikami is talking about the experience.

Kotaku translates a Famitsu interview with the horror icon for us that makes the new console seem a little less immediately accessible than everyone anticipated. His next survival/horror effort The Evil Within is a cross generation title and Tango Gameworks is still getting ahold of the technology.

“To be honest, we’re still finding our feet with it. It’s no longer that era where you can understand a piece of hardware by making just one game for it, so I think we’ll come to see its merits as we grow accustomed to developing for it.”

If you'd like to know whether you should grab The Evil Within for PS3 or wait for the PS4 version Mikami makes a good case for the benefits provided by the new hardware:

“I believe [the PS4] has allowed me to focus on the details. By piling up individual bits of 'it can do this,' 'it can do that,' the overall visual grade has increased. Details and reality are important for the horror genre. Even in a fictitious world, if you show visuals with reality in them, you begin to think that 'such a world is possible.' I feel that the next-gen hardware has raised the bar on expression in this respect.”

really so cant wait for this!
i just hope he keeps the dark gritty gruesome almost hostel vibe the first trailer gave.
im really missing the days where survival horror was always about the atmosphere, not only making you scared but also the walls covered in filth, the characters so grotesque with bits of flesh hanging off them.
outlast is a perfect example of whats gone wrong.
scary as it may be, it just does not give you the dark sadistic twisted vibe that survival horror should have.
these people are mutilating bodies, and am killing as many people as they can find.
so shouldent you be questioning their sanity, and be completely grotesque by the surroundings they choose to call home?

Sounds to me he's basically saying to just wait for the PS4 version.

I am undecided about which version to get, I will probably cave on PS4 though so there's that. I just know I want it, I love horror.
