Well I do get the point of everyone having the same experience and not being discriminated on their platform choice BUT.

With development team of 800+ people over 6 studios they could have given a unique and best experience for each platform of choice.

You severely underestimate the amount of work necessary to optimize efficiently on all consoles then. Even with 800 people it would be an expensive undertaking.

It would cost too much. It isn't about the manpower being lacking. Its about the man-hours needed.

Transition periods are always the most challenging. We've seen a few games that were announced for the PS3, 360 gen but have since moved to PS4, XB1 (final fantasy 15 comes to mind). Most developers still want to have their feet in both pools though, until the next-gen fully takes off.

That's ridiculous, can you imagine the backlash if a system that much more powerful looked no different & also charge £20 more for it.

What a stupid idea!!

You didn't even read the first sentence. "Other than graphical updates," meaning the gameplay experience, not how it looks.

It's understandable why they'd want parity amongst all consoles.
