  • These games shown so far seem to me perfectly capable of running on the X1X/PS4 pro, and even the base consoles as well. So, are the developers artificially limiting them to next gen just for the sake of it, or will they be cross-gen releases? I now think the MS approach of cross-gen at the beginning is the way to go.
  • They will be cross gen. Early games generally are except in the case of some first party titles.
  • I'm assuming many will be cross gen. Would be pretty stupid of 3rd party dev. not to.
