Crytek: PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 is more based on PC hardware

Posted by Aeriplay On April - 20 - 2013

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said in a recent interview that next generation console development — PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 — will be driven by PC developers, who will have a much easier time making games. This is because the PlayStation 4 is based on PC hardware, and the Xbox 720 is expected to be based on the same architecture.

Yerli says that last generation was tough on developers, as going from PS2 to PS3 and from Xbox to Xbox 360 was “back breaking”, as he puts it. This time around, game makers are much more familiar with the architecture of the PlayStation 4. This works well for both console and PC gamers: console gamers will see more PC developers create games, as it’s now a lot easier and cheaper. And PC gamers will see better console ports since there will be no need to make changes to the underlying software.
