And that means current-gen machines will be held back due to this support.

Really?

New assassins creed coming to current gen and a different game for last gen? this is supporting old gen whilst releasing current gen games

Of course they'll support old gen that has an install base of what 100million? Im certainly not wanting to get stop using my ps3 any time soon! but looking forward to ps4 exclusives

You can't make your new game look too good that people still on last generation consoles are getting crappy games in comparison. People won't buy a game that they feel isn't "good enough to buy".

The potential for the games will not be realized until every bit of focus is on the new generation. Otherwise, there will always be considerations, whether technical or marketing-wise, that hold back one so as to make the other still noteworthy and profitable in the eyes of the business holder.

Also, the old gen game will make their way to the new gen consoles with "HD ports". That's a no-brainer. Nothing from a major publisher will remain exclusive to last-gen consoles when they can easily port to the next-gen 3 months down the road.

Ubisoft may be making two separate AC games, but the truth is that the money and resources being spent on the last-gen game could have gone towards the current gen game.

Developers/Publishers need to ditch last-gen asap.

Not really look at The division and The crew they're a current-gen exclusive.

I think the difference would be more notable in games that are on both last and current gen

BattleN1271d ago

Current gen isn't even needed. I could continue on last gen just fine.

The potential for AI improvements is really only going to happen on current generation at this moment. Last gen consoles don't have the RAM/processing speed to handle it and push the same level of graphics they have.

PS3 will be supported for years to come.
X360 will loose most support next-year.
Wii already has lost most support.

That's great for current gen owners but bad for next gen owners such as myself.

More like "next gen limitations for years to come."

AaronPS1271d ago

Sure they will, and I'm going apple picking with scooby doo

lmfao nice simpsons reference xD

MegaRay1271d ago

Yay, no need to upgrade till FF XV and/or KHIII releases in US/EU then

Will continue to support old-gen... with Just Dance games. I mean, I highly doubt that they are still going to continue making Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs games for those platforms. It's happening right now with the Wii.
