Another console generation is practically around the bend, and with it comes another fight over whose technique is better, and which one better serves gamers. Prior, Sony reported an event one week from now where it will flaunt “the future of gaming on PlayStation 5.” In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan, the outlet recommended: “One way to keep PS4 users engaged would be to make upcoming PS5 games playable on the older machine, just like Microsoft is proposing with its Xbox Series X games being playable on Xbox One.”
We have always said that we believe in generations. We believe that when you go to all the trouble of creating a next-gen console, that it should include features and benefits that the previous generation does not include. SIE CEO Jim Ryan
Ryan responded by taking aim at the Xbox plan to have titles and accessories that work across generations, saying “We believe that when you go to all the trouble of creating a next-gen console, that it should include features and benefits that the previous generation does not include. And that, in our view, people should make games that can make the most of those features. We do believe in generations, and whether it’s the DualSense controller, whether it’s the 3D audio, whether it’s the multiple ways that the SSD can be used… we are thinking that it is time to give the PlayStation community something new, something different, that can really only be enjoyed on PS5.”
The Xbox group heard the proposal that games on their platform probably won’t exploit new-gen highlights to give another experience, and Xbox Games Marketing executive Aaron Greenberg tweeted “Generations of games that play on latest HW taking advantage of next-gen innovation offering more choice, value & variety than any console launch ever. All our Studios titles launch into Game Pass & you get those next-gen game upgrades for free.”
