Re: Epic Games on next gen console specs
I guess it all boils down to the same thing too, money. It is easy for devs to say "hey we want to use our engines to the max and the hardware we are given ain't gonna do that", but from Sony and microsoft's point of view they have to make machines that are cost effective. Better hardware is more cost and again the people that effects the most is the consumers.
Whatever hardware will be used for the next gen machines im sure will plop all over current console gen hardware, and if dev's really want to showcase their engines then they always have PC hardware to do it on, wether it's cost effective or not. A good example of this is Cryteks Crysis 1.
