Ex-Capcom Keiji Inafune was at E3 this year where the next-gen consoles made their presence and he wasn’t impressed by the game line-up of both the PS4 and Xbox One. In an interview with Famitsu, he revealed why he felt that way.
“I was mostly handling interviews during E3 so I couldn’t get around the show floor that much,” he told Famitsu. “But with the quick overview I had, I sadly didn’t see any games this time that I really wanted to try out. We’re right at the cusp of new hardware launches, after all, so my impression was that it was nothing but sequels and there aren’t any new titles in the end.
“With the previous generational shift, too, it seemed like they couldn’t do anything new, and the launch games for the new systems didn’t really seem made for the systems, but were instead previous-gen games made for next-gen systems. That’s the state we’re in right now, and to be honest, I didn’t see anything really new and innovative in this year’s title lineup.”
There are plenty of games confirmed for both the next-gen consoles and he does have a point considering not many games were next-gen quality. There were a lot of open world games though, and you can check out our complete list of that.
