PS4 will be bringing a lot of new content to the industry, but some developers think it and other consoles cannot be as risky as other generations have been.
According to a report from Edge on Wednesday, there will be some new game development upcoming in the years of the PlayStation 4.
Flippin Pixels art director Steven Hurst discussed some of the current climate in the console world and how developers can't risk as much.
"In the console market you just cannot take risks nowadays.
"If you’re making a AAA title there’s so much invested in it. So much manpower – everything. You have to give the people what they want," Hurst said.
Flippin Pixels software director James Ackroyd then talked about how it is not the best idea to invest all of a company's money into one game, like many studios do.
"You can’t put all your eggs in one basket, spend two years on one game – and however tens of millions of pounds on it – and then hope that it works, unless you’ve got that strong brand or IP behind it.
"The thing I like about mobile development is you can get a product out quickly and then see how people engage with it. If it works, brilliant, you can work on it and extend it in a way that people like. If it doesn’t then you can move on.
"With the speed and the flexibility with which we can make these games, then it kind of gives you the chance to try out these ideas, and react to how things are going," Ackroyd said.
