When it comes to debate about next-gen consoles, it’s a bit sad that Nintendo’s Wii U is often left out of the mix, but in any case as it stands, the debate is whether one should go for Microsoft’s Xbox One, or the Sony PlayStation 4. Ultimately it boils down to personal preference and also which exclusive titles you would rather have, but if you’re looking to compare consoles based purely on hardware specs, you probably shouldn’t bother, at least that’s what Resident Evil’s creator, Shinji Mikami, seems to suggest in an interview he had with Edge magazine.
According to Mikami, he believes that we only really need one console, especially since the hardware specs of both consoles are almost identical. “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. So either will do.” Like we said earlier it really just boils down to personal preference, the services provided by either platform, the comfort, the titles available, and etc., so there’s really no scientific way of choosing either device, but what do you guys think of Mikami’s comments? Do we really just need one console at the end of the day?
