Creative Director/co-founder of Irrational Games Ken Levine, best known for the Bioshock Infinite title was in a recent interview with Eurogamer, where he discussed the next-gen console and PC.
He feels that they are “very much similar beasts” and the most important aspect is going to be “more about the software.”
Levine gave his input on the ongoing console war by saying, “People want to talk about owning the living room. I don’t think the living room matters that much any more,
“It’s about wherever you want to game and having your experience. I’m not just saying playing an iPhone game, I’m saying having your game – your big, hardcore game – playing on whatever screen you wanted.”
With all the technology we have today, Levine knows that gaming will advance and reach places it has never been before.
He states, “The technology’s there – it’s actually very, very cheap,” Levine said. “I’m just waiting for someone to do it, because letting gamers define their experience – how they play it, where they play it – that’s where it’s going. Gamer-driven experiences. That’s what excites me.”
Irrational Game’s current objective is to focus on the DLC ‘Burial at Sea’ for Bioshock Infinite. The team is “working on our engine technology in general.” At the moment, they don’t have the “have the bandwidth to think about” next gen titles.
