EA Can't Conceive What a PS4 Could Even Do

Posted on Tuesday, August 30 @ 13:31:11 Eastern by

EA doesn't think gamers are ready for a PlayStation 4 yet, because, what would it even do? EA Labels boss Frank Gibeau says:

It's hard for me to conceive what you would do on a PlayStation 4. The displays are already 1080p, you're already connected to the internet... You could make it faster, you could have more polys and you could up the graphics a little bit... but at what cost?

Faster, more polygons, upping the graphics... that all sounds pretty good to me, and as someone who wants to push the envelope with games even further, he should think it sounds good too. Instead, he's all like, "Yuck, better graphics... but we already have the internet on our systems."

The PlayStation 4 would probably play games. You know, better ones than what are found on the PlayStation 3. The same way the PS3 plays better games than the PS2, and the PS2 plays better games than the PSOne. See, Mr. Gibeau, there's a little something called console lifecycles. When one reaches the end of theirs, it's a sad day indeed, but it also means a new beginning. Sure the PS3 isn't quite there, but to be so against new consoles is just plain stupid.

He added:

I'd like to see the cycle last a little longer. I don't see consumers right now banging on the walls for a new platform. They seem to be very happy with their PS3s and 360s. They love the online connectivity, they have great communities and great libraries.

I'm happy with my PS3 and 360, too. But I'm going to start banging on walls - who's with me?
