Lately, the development studios of video game are giving their opinion on media hardware upgrade cycles, and many have agreed that it is a good move by Xbox and PlayStation. One of the company that also supports this idea is Bethesda.
“I think that kind of stuff is great,” said Bethesda’s Vice President of Marketing, Pete Hines, during an interview at QuakeCon. “I mean, having more robust hardware is … We’re big fans of it.”
So far, details about new systems of Microsoft and Sony are scarce, so, Hines said that there is not much to say about the impact they would have with the technical specifications of hardware for the games of Bethesda.
“What that does for us, I mean, right now it’s all talk, right” he said. “They [Microsoft and Sony] are not out and we’re still early days on it. It remains to be seen exactly what impact it has.”
Also, Hines said these moves by hardware companies help make the games look better and gives developers more tools to work precisely in the games they have in their heads.
One of the companies supporting the new consoles is Electronic Arts, which mentioned that Project Scorpio and PlayStation NEO are great for the industry. In addition, Take-Two, responsible for teams like Rockstar and Gearbox, said that the current systems are a great opportunity.
