The Xbox Two and PS5 should arrive by 2018-2019, says EA boss

IAmtHKQ

EA Studios executive vice-president Patrick Söderlund had a nice talk with MCV  where he explained why he thinks that Xbox Two and PS5 will arrive in 2018-2019.

“This console [360/PS3] cycle may have gone on a little bit longer than I would have wanted.”

Söderlund says that there’s an upside to a longer console cycle, though in his opinion old console games are better.  “At the same time, you have seen games like The Last of Us and GTA V at the end of a cycle which perhaps you would not have expected a few years ago.” He feels that manufacturers won’t permit ageing hardware to linger next time round, however. “A five, six-year gap is what I expect going forward.”

witch1a

Witcher 3 is expected to arrive somewhere of next year and from what the developers say, they had an easy time building it.Török,  Witcher 3 developer has said in an interview with Eurogamer‘s that “The Xbox One is pretty easy to understand because not just the hardware is similar to the PC, but everything like the [software development kit], the [application programming interface] is really similar to what you would find on a PC.” Török believes that Microsoft will open up more power to the developers just like they did with the Xbox 360, they open many ” parts ” for developers to work with. Because of that Török thinks that Microsoft will follow the same steps and open the power for the developers, but later.

Pornhub Reveals Xbox One Support In An Interview

original

Ok we didn’t see that coming that soon. In an interview with noobfeed Corey Price was asked about Xbox One and pornography site running in the console, since not long ago pornhub had announced that they will be running on PS4, for which he answered yes, pornhub will run on Xbox One. Pornhub had to  rework their media to play through HTML5 players since PS4 has lack of flash. It seems that pornhub did work on their media since they are also capable of being run in Xbox One. To make it more official pornhub had tweet about this, which surely got attention of the fans and Xbox One owners.

Marc Whitten: Xbox One’s Launch Graphics “Just the Beginning.”

XB1

In an interview with  BBC Marc Whitten, Xbox Corporate Vice President said that he believes  that the graphics of games like Forza Motorsport 5 and Ryse: Son of Rome are already amazing, but they’re just the beginning and the Xbox One will be able to show even more spectacular games in the future, this “future” part seems to be hinting us about a newer version of Xbox One.

I think there’s a couple of things: First, you know, I think a lot of the games are amazing. When you look at the play of light through the Forza windshield, the incredible graphics of a game like Ryse, I think for sure these are things that are just inherently not possible on the current generation of consoles.

But it’s also just the beginning, and you know, as we’ve seen with 360, you start with this toolbox, people build amazing things on day one, and then as time goes on, they get better and better at using those tools, we provide more capabilities in the system, and you just see better and better content come from there.

To me this is the beginning of an amazing journey.

Xbox-One-Logo-Wallpaper-HD-Dekstop-Games

In a talk with obsession, Hugues Ouvrard, Marketing Director Xbox France ‘s has said that Xbox One is the most powerful console out there. According to the interview  “exclusive” sometimes is the thing that boost the sale of the console, especially since Xbox One has lots of exclusive content and the PS4 has only few, Xbox One surely first place in that   game. When asked if the PS4 more powerful Ouvrard answered:

PS4 is not more powerful. There is a confusion about the difference in the number of pixels, but the definition of certain defined by the publisher, not the console.Especially thanks to the power of cloud - we have installed 300,000 servers – the capabilities of the console are multiplied by four. So if you connect the console to the Internet, then the Xbox One is the most powerful.

As you see the quote says all, Microsoft says to everybody that Xbox One is the best console out there.

Microsoft Figuring Out how to Bring “Versions” of Family Sharing Back To Xbox One

Xbox-one

Probably the family sharing in the Xbox One was the best feature Microsoft has ever thought of adding to the Xbox One but according to Albert Penello who spoke Penny Arcade , this feature is not that easy to add it back and if Microsoft finds a way to add that feature back, it won’t be the thing we expect.

I think people liked the family sharing stuff a lot. So we’re going to figure out ways to bring versions of that in. We now have a different model so some of that stuff can’t happen. We’ve tried to keep things we thought people liked, the conversion of licenses is one.

We still allow your stuff in the cloud, so anything you did buy digitally you can still redownload on other consoles and play without a disc. But the family sharing was the one people really liked, being able to check out and digitally share a title, we’re going to have to figure out how in the new world we do that.

Shuhei Yoshida Gives Five Reasons to Buy a PS4 Instead of a Xbox One

xbox-vs-ps4

Yep, Sony’s entrainment Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida is proud to be part of PS4 development,when  Yoshida was asked which of the consoles is better he went and gave us 5 reasons why you should buy PS4 instead of Microsoft’s Xbox One in an interview on the Financial Post.

There are many reasons, but I have a top five! [Smiles]

The number one reason is that we believe the PS4 most powerful game console. It’s future proof. The system can grow, the games can grow, but day-one there are lots of games that take advantage of the PS4 rendering natively at 1080p, which is higher resolution than [pause] other systems. It’s so beautiful.

Number two is the variety of games available day-one and coming out soon. We made it our number one priority in development to make developing games on PS4 as easy as possible. We reached out to indie developers to make very attractive, unique and interesting games. So that many of these games are coming out on PS4. We have been doing this effort for the last few years; it isn’t like we just started this year or anything. There are already many great indie games on PS3 and PSVita, and people are enjoying it. And we are making sure that the same happens on PS4 as well. And that more even games could come out on PS4, not only the biggest of the studios but the smallest of the studios, especially those who have unique, interesting ideas.

Number three are the features, like social features and the share buttons. The ease of use for the system. You can use your smart phone to purchase a game and while you are away it will download the game at home, so when you get home, the game could be already downloaded and waiting for you. So all of these ease of use and fun to use and fun to find out information about what your friends are doing, all of this is built into the system features.

Number four: We have a large network of studios in the world-wide studios. We are launching PS4 with five first party titles. KnackKillzone Shadowfall and Resogun, and Flower and Soundshapes from PS3. But there are a lot games in productions and there are many great studios working on PS4 titles. Many of them are new IPs, and we are waiting for the right time to announce them. So down the line, great games are coming from these first-party studios.

And number five: It’s a hundred dollars cheaper than some direct competition. So, if you like money, it’s always a great choice.

We’re extremely proud that we’re able to offer PS4 for a 400 dollars price point.

There were some rumors before the announcement at E3. They had the press conference before we did. We were waiting in the reharsal and watching the livestream of the announcement, and towards the end of the show they announced their price point, and we were like “yahoo!” We were high-fiving, because there were some rumors, but we didn’t believe it. We were like “Wow, that’s awesome!”

You know, competition is fun.

I starting to like this guy, he seems one happy and funny dude.
