Ubisoft Says Core Gamers Are “Starved” For Next Gen, Is That True?

Ubisoft Says Core Gamers Are “Starved” For Next Gen, Is That True?

The wait for the next generation of consoles, aka PS4 and the next Xbox, is just too much for core gamers to bare, Ubisoft believes, because they’re tired of the same ole of current gen, regurgitated offerings. My question is, is Ubisoft right?

Ubisoft believes people everywhere want to express themselves in increasingly unique ways, and games should be an avenue by which said expressions are relayed. Current gen consoles don’t have the prowess for such expansion, and it’s one of the reasons why the new systems need to be released sooner rather than later.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said all this in a prepared statement today, courtesy Gamespot:

We live in a world of self-expression. Everywhere, everyone is creative and wants to add value. Customization, or curating, is a huge growth area across all services and that holds true for games. People want to play in their own way, they want to define their own experience and they want to share the way they’re playing.

So do you agree? Are you starved for a PS4 or the next Xbox? Let’s talk. Do it here: The Official Games Thirst GDDR5.
