Japanese Developers Talk Next-Gen
Several Japanese game developers have voiced their opinions about the upcoming consoles from Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. Developers from Sega, Tecmo, Koei, and more have their opinions and Gamespot collected them for you.
Yuji Naka, Sonic the Hedgehog series creator at Sega
PlayStation 3 – “I am very interested in its high-quality graphics capabilities. It’s equipped with a graphics chip that’s twice as powerful as the high-end [graphics card] for the PC, which allows it to make realistic expressions that haven’t been possible before.”
Revolution – “I look forward to the ‘new kind of fun’ that’s unique to Nintendo, and I expect that there will be a lot of surprises, such as the unannounced controller. It’s also great that we’ll be able to play Famicom and other games via download. I hope Sega games will be playable as well.” [Note: A number of Sega games have been released for Nintendo consoles by Sunsoft.]
Xbox 360 – “[Microsoft has] used its knowledge from Xbox Live to evolve their network, making its services and controls even more convenient for the user, which I think is a very attractive point.”
