The next-generation of games will no doubt attract a lot of attention, but one developer in particular has expressed a strong desire to develop titles for what's next in gaming.
According to a report from VG24/7 on Thursday, Paradox Interactive CEO Fredrik Wester talked about the need for Microsoft and Sony to make it easier on those developers who want to bring titles to those systems.
"If I had a wish list, I’d wish for Microsoft and Sony to be more open, too, to make it easier for all types of companies to publish all types of material online.
"I want to make games for upcoming consoles; I am stretching out my hand saying I want to do this, and if they have a platform that suits us, it’ll be fantastic," Wester said.
Wester went on to address digital platforms in a rather rigid manner.
"Previously, iOS was pretty open, there wasn’t that much competition and anyone would publish for that platform. Same with Windows, because Steam was really open.
"Now, it’s really tough for indies to get in there. They use Greenlight to ‘screen’ what is likely to be a success.
"Five years ago the PC market was in a total decline, and the console manufacturers totally missed out on the digital download challenge, because they were worried about retailers. Now they have a chance to make up for that," Wester said.
Is this now the time for PC to take hold of some customers who are on the fence regarding the next Xbox and PlayStation?
