The PlayStation 4 looks like it will be debuting this coming week, but with that, one major gaming developer believes it and other next-generation consoles still have an efficiency issue to overcome.
According to a report from GamesIndustry on Friday, Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price talked about one of the ultimate issues that the gaming industry and next-generation consoles like the PS4 will have to face.
"I think that what we all face in this industry - for those of us in the console business - is the need to get progressively more efficient in terms of how we build our assets and get them into the game.
"Because that's going to get more and more complex.
"The bar continues to get raised in terms of visuals, so to keep development costs reasonable you have to have better and better tools, which means a constant focus on efficiency in your pipeline.
"The more efficiently you create assets for your game and the more quickly you can iterate on gameplay, the better the final product's going to be no matter what platform it is," Price said.
Price has certainly been one of the more vocal developers regarding the next-generation of gaming, but ultimately, he will be one of the people who needs to help decide how these new systems make the proper adjustments.
