Moody: Next PlayStation and Xbox should have 'more, bigger everything'

Clive Moody, Senior Executive Producer at British game developer Codemasters, chats with Game Guy Barry White about the next generation of home video game consoles, the Wii U possibly being "the future", and the possibility of a digital download gaming future.

The story is too old to be commented.

That was what I wanted and expected for this gen. But suddenly games like Uncharted and gears started popping up and linearity took over again. It was all about the visuals and nobody even bothered with draw distance. When Blu ray was originally announced for PS I though more space = more unique content. Then you have games like the Witcher 2 that are 15GB and 20-30 hours long with a few traversable maps and still look better than anything the consoles put out, and Skyrim with it's 6 gigabytes and massive world(shame they focused TOO much on the world over good game design).

Was maddening when I found out what this gen was not really going to be any different that last gen except the graphics would be better and multiplayer would rear it's backside into the middle of everything. I mean take a look at God of war 3 compared to 2. There are no notable differences besides backround scale. All the power went straight into looks. I would have been better if the game almost constantly took place near or around on the titans and the graphics where worse to trade off for it. And I know people still love God of war 3 because the way it was is just...could have been alot better. Uncharted does focus on small scale hyper looking action of course so I can hardly pin that down for what it did either, I just wished there were more games that did focus on draw distance(gameplay enhancing draw distance I mean).

Linearity took over again? last time I check linear games rules consistently.

The truth is that linear games are great for keeping a story centered experience. I love open worlds but linear games will always be around for obvious reasons.

Good suggestions. I would also add that I think they should be betterer and more good.

So in other words nothing. This comment was nothing if not immature.

You dream! Nintendo is going to be number one again! Sony, in my opinion is about to screw up royally with the PS4 they are going to give Sony fanboys exactly what they do not want. They'll steal from Nintendo's playbook but this time they'll fail completely again. Microsoft might just get their chance to be average again (Noting wrong with silver!)the one bright shinning star that the 360 offered gamers, Xbox Live, has been totally smoked by Nintendo's Miiverse. Sounds impossible but freakily true! See you in June kittens and good luck, this is going to be Nintendo's e3! I can't wait! I wonder whar Retro's been working on.

Because he says the WiiU is the future that's why.
