We’re almost two years into the eighth generation of gaming, yet the latest PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles still suffer from quite a few bitter issues that are hindering their progress, such as their incapability to run next-gen major triple A titles at fully optimized next-gen standard settings. That is, however, because the true potential of the eighth generation video game consoles has not been completely realized yet, says Staruass Zelnick, the CEO of Rockstar and 2K Games parent company Take-Two Interactive, who said during a recent presentation that we have yet to see the best.
We Have Yet to See What Can be Done Using the Power of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Consoles, Says Take-Two CEO Staruass Zelnick
While the latest major video games are hitting 4K resolution mark on PC, the eighth generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles are still stuck at trying to run the games at full HD 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second. However, it has been said several times that this is only due to developers not yet having realized the true power that both the prevailing consoles have to offer. Same are the thoughts of Staruass Zelnick.
Speaking at the 43rd Annual Technology, Media and Telecom Conference this week in New York City, Zelnick said there is still time before we get to see what technology can allow us to do. He said that the publisher has released some games on the current consoles, but that doesn’t mean the offerings of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have been completely explored, and that is something super exciting. He said:
"We have yet to see entirely what the technology can allow. We've had a couple releases for new-gen, but I don't think we remotely have seen what can be done, and that's super exciting. And that speaks to many of our titles; hopefully all of our titles, ultimately."
Zelnick’s statement of opinion follows comments from president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Andrew House. Speaking at Sony annual Investor Day conference earlier this week, House said that he’s expectant that E3 2015 next month will be a show where we will finally see the new consoles delivering games that will take a lot more, if not full, advantage of the latest hardware. He said:
"I think it will be a show where we see the next generation of hardware really start to deliver great content and experiences that, if not take full advantage of the platform, take a lot more advantage than we've seen before.”
GTA V is the most prominent video game released by Take-Two Interactive on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles up until now. However, this can’t be counted as the publisher’s brand new contribution to the current generation, as the game is just a remastered version of the best-selling title that was originally released on the seventh generation PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. It will be interesting to see what Take-Two has to offer in terms of major triple A games exclusive to the current generation.
