Massive considered past-gen for The Division, confident in PS4 & Xbox One base

Fredrik Rundqvist, who is an executive producer on Tom Clancy's The Division, spoke with about how Massive did think about bringing the game to the PS3 and Xbox 360, but ultimately it came down to the game not being able to work on past-gen systems.

I love all of Ubisofts games but this one looks very uninteresting so far. I need to see more!

The game-play they released looked phenomenal, I understand that Ubisoft is guilty of toning down the visuals of their games upon release but this has the makings to be a tremendously immersing game. I will probably make my decision on which next gen console to buy when we are closer to this game's launch.

I think asking for more is a bit unfounded. They have certainly shared some high impact information on the game that makes the decision an easy one for me.

The gameplay at E3 was boring. I used it as an opportunity to get a drink and go to the toilet, as it bored me.
The CGI was much, much better.

I wouldn't put too much faith in current gen if you intend to make it online only.

Sorry, you're wrong consoles need more AAA MMOs, seriously we don't get any! The Division will be a good change of pace.

An long as they port backwords from the consoles to lowest like ps3 xbox 360 Or have a seperate team working on last gen systems this should be cool.
I know everyone wants to move forword now i agree really do but not everyone can afford or have another next gen system yet. As long as devs can focus mainly on next gen system first and do proper job on old gen last no reason why last gen systems cant be supported.

Then the average consumer won't feel the need to upgrade, leading to a lower adoption rate for the next gen consoles. Companies keep making cross gen titles for money because the install base for ps4 and Xbox one aren't large enough, but if they keep doing that less and less people will feel the need to upgrade no matter how big the difference is because they are still getting so many of the care experiences next gen is getting. It's completely counterintuitive if you ask me.

Thats the point of this article the divison is a next gen only game. There wont be a ps3 or x360 version.

Considered I would of did it more money sorry to say. But then it would have taken a toll on development rendering less effects and features
