Final Fantasy XV Director Discusses Changes From PS3 to PS4 Development

March 13, 2015Written by Mark Labbe


Though there is no announced release time frame, a Final Fantasy XV demo is set to come out next week, making it the first FF game to be native on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Hajime Tabata recently sat down with Official PlayStation Magazine and explained the differences between creating a game for the PS4 versus the PS3.

Well, the amount of money that the company invests in projects for the PS4 is completely different to those for the PSP, so I can certainly feel a difference in the anxiousness from higher management!

As a developer I did not actually feel that much of a pull from the PS3 to want to develop games for it, but I certainly feel that from the PS4. It feels like a very big evolution in game design, similar to the shift from 2D to 3D was. I really feel that this challenge to create something that could not be done on any platform other than PS4 can only happen with the latest cutting edge consoles of the current generation.

It all sounds pretty stressful, but the upcoming RPG seems to be coming along. What do you think of Tabata’s comments on Final Fantasy XV?
