PS4 & Xbox One Will Not Be Last Gen of Consoles, Says Ubisoft Boss
Ubisoft president Yves Guillemot does not believe that the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 will be of the last generation of consoles. Speaking in an interview with CVG, Guillemot expressed his understanding that manufacturers like Sony and Microsoft wish to find a way to control their platforms.
“I still think it is not the last generation, because the manufacturers want a way to control their platform and the machine is the best way to have a specific access to that,” said Guillemot in an interview which took place at E3 last month.
Guillemot said that he expects to see a ‘big increase in the market’ for consoles as game developers produce high quality titles.
“What I’m happy with is, because we’ve been waiting for a long time, if we really come with high quality games then the public will come very quickly to buy them,” he said.
“I think that the cloud is going to change a few things,” he added. “Now with cloud and the increase of bandwidth we should have the possibility to increase the quality of games a lot over the next few years. But I think five years is the right timing for it.
“If we can take advantage of the quality those machines bring, and if we can spend money, then I think we can make the business grow very fast.”
