The PlayStation 4 hasn’t been on the retail shelves too long in console standards, but Sony isn’t content with leaving the console as it is. They’ve already announced an upgrade to the console, the PS4 Neo, and while consumers and critics are pretty mixed about it, publisher Bethesda is happily on board with the idea.
In an interview at QuakeCon this past weekend, Bethesda’s Pete Hines talked about how they feel about potential hardware upgrades, and also admitted he has no idea what this means for Bethesda or other developers just yet.
I think that kind of stuff is great. I mean, having more robust hardware is … We’re big fans of it.
What that does for us, I mean, right now it’s all talk, right. They [Microsoft and Sony] are not out and we’re still early days on it. It remains to be seen exactly what impact it has.
Hines went on to say that such hardware upgrades make games look better, and they give developers more tools to create the exact game they have in their minds.
Bethesda isn’t alone in voicing support for the PS4 Neo upgrade. Electronic Arts (EA) said that the PS4 is great for the industry, and publisher Take-Two boasted that this new hardware is a great opportunity for developers.
