Jonathon Blow, creator of the timed exclusive PS4 game, The Witness, has said some interesting things about the next gen consoles.
He believes that the PS4 could hold a significant power advantage over the Xbox One, and Sony’s development tools are much better than Microsoft’s at this stage.
This should be a surprise since Microsoft has been always known for great development tools. It looks like Sony has really planned well this time around, since the PS4 was in development since 2008.
“I think the RAM helps a lot but there are other important hardware+system things happening,” blow tweeted. “But you might also get a scenario where games run at 60 on one machine, 30 on the other…”
Check out his comments below.
Third-party multiplatform games will probably be on par next-gen because the game publishers have to maintain parity, and it will be similar to this generation where the lowest common denominator will be used as a base to create games.
The power of a system will mostly be showcased only through first-party games which both these consoles will have. For multiplatform, though it would be unwise to expect one version to run significantly better than the other.
