- He said the CPU is the biggest leap this time around.
- He also said everyone was expecting AAA games at the Inside Xbox show.
In a recent interview (via WCCFTech), developers on next-gen horror title "Scorn" made some comments about the status of next-gen hardware. Ebb Software's Game Director Ljubomir Peklar discussed many aspects of the upcoming first-person horror game as well as what to expect from next-generation consoles.
WCCFtech compiled a list of the important quotes from the interview. You can read a condensed version below.
Many other developers and analysts have lamented the CPU limitations as well in the past. It appears to be a widely acknowledged problem with the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
What do you want to see from next-generation consoles? Better visuals or better frame rates? Or a balanced approach that prioritizes 60 frames per second? Let us know.
Xbox Series X/S

It depends on the game. I played Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 30 fps because I need that 4K, and it felt just right. However, I don't want to play Gears of War at 30 fps ever again.
I agree with you maybe some games would be fine at 30 frames per second but the problem is you can get a cinematic feel even with 60 frames per second. And I agree that's why I loved gears of war 5 4K 60 I play gears of war 4 at 1080p 60
4k/60fps should be the norm if such a touted leap in the coming gens is to be belive and taken into account. I wouldn't accept any less from AAA game studios. my wallet will do the talking for me. Now for AA or indies, I can make an exception, taking into account the games and genres.
Agree on all fronts no more accepting less than 60fps
I am seriously considering boycotting any title that is not hitting 60fps
Why, not all titles need it.
No titles need it. But all feel better to play with it. Even in 3rd person action cinematic games. It all feels smoother and more responsive.
High action titles do. So do competitive titles.
I want to see better games. Creative games with engaging mechanics. That doesn't necessarily need cpu or GPU improvements. But I understand they want to maximize their hardware specs to offer better graphics and frame rates in games that are very similar to what sells most now.
The CPU's were definitely a limitation for the One and PS4, especially as the consoles aged. But I feel like it's probably a combination of parts that are the benefit in the new systems, not any one piece. That being said, Scorn also seems like it will be a more atmospheric, tight corridor affair. So I imagine the benefits of an SSD won't be as prevalent as a huge sprawling open World game.
*cough* fanboy *cough*
Fanboy of what? Both systems were called out.
I honestly don't know which system that comment implies I'm a fanboy for.
