David Cage on PS4: “It’s another world”
Talking about what the next generation technology would bring he said, “Generally it will give us more subtlety, more nuance, more detail”. He also thought that the new capabilities would have an impact on development saying, “New hardware provides new technologies that allow you to be more subtle. And that in itself does change the developer’s incentives. I probably wouldn’t have attempted Beyond on PS2 because I wouldn’t have thought I could get there. There would have been certain trade-offs.”.
Speaking about his current project he said, “We could have made just a sequel with Beyond. We could have gone with the same template and just fill the holes with different characters. But I started with a blank page and imagined completely different things. I don’t want to replicate the same things. The engine is completely different. We have built it from scratch”.
