While Microsoft continues to rack up the bad headlines about the next generation system, developers continue to praise Sony and the changes that they’ve made to the PS4.
The most recent comes from Ubisoft’s Yannis Mallat in an interview with CVG, who says that the PS4 is a “pleasant surprise”.
According to Mallat, “PlayStation 4 really comes as a pleasant surprise because indeed it’s a very familiar architecture. I think it’s paying off for us deciding to develop on high-end PCs early. It’s a less complex transition.”
This less complex transition is obviously why we’ve been able to see working forms of games like Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed 4 with the full faith that these represent what the PlayStation 4 is capable of.
These statements also directly conflict with what Atari’s Nolan Bushnell recently claimed to be Sony’s Achilles heel in the next console cycle.
