Guerrilla On Future Of PS4, And The Fan's Thirst For "New"
Killzone: Shadow Fall is a great shooter. But obviously, games will get even better on the PlayStation 4.
Guerrilla Games lead designer Eric Boltjes spoke to AusGamers about how titles for Sony's new console will improve and evolve in the coming years:
Being my own personal views, and not necessarily company ones, but I think with every new platform, the first games that come out, because of just the way things work — with the way the tools get developed etc — it’s not using it’s maximum potential yet. Regardless of how beautiful Killzone: Shadow Fall is and how well it runs, I think games within the next five years running on the PS4 will be even more beautiful, and even better."
Boltjes added that more than anything, gamers are "hungry for something new, something different they haven't played before." Well, that was part of the trouble with Shadow Fall, as it definitely wasn't anything we haven't seen before. However, as time goes on, developers will continue to exercise their creativity (we hope), and they'll also learn the ins and outs of the PS4 at a quicker clip as compared to the PS3.
The result? Oh, nothing shy of gaming greatness for all, of course.
