Dan Connors has provided some observations in regards to the gameplay evolution of the PS4 and Xbox 720. According to an interview with Game Informer on Feb. 18, the CEO of TellTale Games (the developer behind “The Walking Dead” video game) disclosed that the potential new interfaces will provide a new evolution in storytelling. If done right, both next-generation systems should be able to provide all kinds of entertainment in the living room. You can check out some fan made concept designs of the PS4 and Xbox 720 in the slideshow at the top of this article as well as the comments from Dan Connors below (courtesy of Game Informer):
I talk more about the specific interfaces, because I think they’re interesting in the evolution of storytelling. I think right now we still want to focus on the channel that we have, and then whatever connected experiences come with the next generation of hardware. If Xbox and Sony play this right, you people, everybody, should be getting all entertainment from that device in the living room. And it should be passive, it should be attractive, and they should be able to talk to each other. So that element of this is super interesting.
“The Walking Dead” video game was released digitally in five episodes throughout 2012 for multiple platforms. The adventure title also came out as a retail product for the PS3 and Xbox 360. You can purchase the compilation disc in the following link: “The Walking Dead”
The PS4 and Xbox 720 are both rumored to be coming with a motion-sensing camera similar to the Kinect and Playstation Eye.
