Steve Papoutsis, producer for the for the hit horror-action franchise Dead Space, has spoken out in what he wants out of the next-gen consoles…and you might not agree with some of them.
Speaking to Xbox 360 Magazine, Papoutsis revealed the following:
“I’d love the convenience of installing your games like you do now but making that process automatic, as I want to avoid having to change discs. Microsoft has made a lot of nice improvements to the dashboard over the years so I’m expecting an even more refined and streamlined user interface for people to interact with when checking out stuff on the marketplace.
I’m hoping the next Xbox will be up to speed with the cutting edge PCs of today. I’m looking for 60 FPS gameplay across the board with outstanding visuals and more processing power for physics. In terms of features, I hope the new system will always be on and connected, because it would be awesome to have games load up super-fast and take me back to where I was the last time I played.”
While it’s common sense that developers would want more power under the hood for prettier graphics, it’s quite shocking to hear that they also want consoles to “always be online.” Not because I have anything against online gaming, but if they indeed do that, aren’t they alienating their customers who don’t have access to the internet – albeit, regardless how small of a portion they are?
Aside from that, I think what Papoutsis has said seems to be right on track for what most gamers want, too. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait long till the next-gen of gaming is finally revealed, no?
