Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami said he doesn’t really see a difference in the specifications between Sony’s next-gen console the PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, according to a report today from VG 24/7.
“We only need one console. Why do I have to make two versions of a game? And when Xbox One was first announced it had lower specs than PS4, but now they’re almost identical,” Mikami said. “So either will do.”
Mikami’s remarks could contrast those of Ghost Game’s executive producer Marcus Nilsson, who said that the Need for Speed: Rivals development team found one console particularly more powerful than the other, though he refused to disclose which one.
When asked he was referring to the PS4 version of Need for Speed: Rivals, Nilsson said, “I think that both consoles will look pretty much on parity, but one of them might stick up a little bit.”
However, Mikami could be speaking strictly from a development side in terms of specs, rather than how the final output of games looks on each console.
The Xbox One launches in the U.S. and 12 other markets on Nov. 22, while the PS4 hits shelves in North America on Nov. 15, in Europe on Nov. 29 and in Japan on Feb. 22.
