EA: Games on Xbox One, PS4 and current-gen will be more split apart next year

This week, we have asked a few questions to EA Executive Producer Marcus Nilsson about Need for Speed Rivals and next-gen in general. To follow up on the recent article about cross generation gaming, Nilsson comments on the gap widening between the two versions. This is what he had to say:

Now you will see games that are the same across current-gen and next-generation [consoles]. Already next year you’ll see games that are more split apart, people will understand the new systems more, how to develop on different systems. You already have games that come out on next-generation only. You have [games like] Forza, it’s a real advantage to develop on one platform for one game. I do think however, we have better games this time around than what we had when 360 and PS3 arrived. You will see an improvement. You’ll see graphics go forward with time because really intelligent people will push the bar forward.

The gap between the original Xbox and the Xbox 360 were not substantial at launch. Looking back now, those games do not come close in graphical comparison and depth to what is released now. Most can agree Nilsson is correct on the bar pushing, and the potential can be shocking if met by these systems in the near future.
