Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary: Developer Thinks next Gen Xbox 720 On Its Way
There is an ongoing buzz about the next generation of Xbox – the 720. It is not here yet but people are already exploring its possibilities. Matthew Karch, Saber Interactive CEO and head of Halo- Combat Evolved Anniversary single-player campaign believes that the next-gen console can serve up “phenomenal things”, such as groundbreaking physics and realistic body movement simulation.
PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720, according to Karch, may also lead the way to the creation of smaller, licensed games. We can do a lot of things right now but next-gen can pave the way to power that cannot yet be wielded by our current processors.
A speedy growth spurt in technology, specifically with physics and AI, will surely be welcome. The games we have right now are great, yes, but still reflect a lot of the technology that has been discovered a whole decade ago. We need some changes, people. The Halo Anniversary, for example, should get you thinking.
The game is ten years old but does not look that much different from titles that have just sprung out of the development board. So yeah, hopes are high for the Xbox 720. I also want to see more licensed, downloadable games. Publishers, however, are bent on churning out games for existing consoles, which may be in millions of houses right now just waiting for new games to be loaded.
