By reviews / 21. June 2019

The head of the studio behind games like Bayonetta and NieR: Automata has said itshard to get excitedabout the upcoming PS5 and Xbox 2 next-generation consoles.

PlatinumGamesAtsushi Inaba doesnt seem to think the next-gen of gaming is tickling his fancy. Rumours and speculation about Microsofts Xbox 2currently codenamed Project Scarletthave ramped up since its unrevealing showing at E3 2019. We also expect to hear more about the PlayStation 5 soon.

In an interview with VGC, Atsushi Inaba made a ton of comments about future consoles that were less than flattering. Inaba blames a move towardsoff-the-shelfcomponents as a reason for his downbeat feeling towards the next-gen consoles, addingits hard to get excited about stuff that kind of already exists”.

Going into more detail on his thoughts about the PS5 and Xbox 2, Inaba explained: “Its OK. And by that I mean, Im sure that things will move faster, graphics will be better and maybe it will be easier with less wait timesthats good for the consumer. But its more of the same … Its nothing thats disruptive or super innovative”.

Inabas scorn wasnt just reserved for the Xbox 2 and PS5, however. Inaba continued: “Game hardware used to be about custom chips that you couldnt do on PCs. Now you look at it and theyre just grabbing stuff that already exists. The Switch, for example, is a Tegra which already existed and the other consoles are using very similar chips and graphics cards to what you see on PCsNone of it seems unique to that hardware anymore.”

Regarding innovation happening in the games industry, Inaba had kinder words for technology like Google Stadia or Project xCloud: “Thats why for me, things like cloud platforms represent innovation and something very, very differenttheyre platforms that excite me and where I feel there is a lot more innovation happening”.
