PS5 and Xbox Scarlett: Power, Memory, Always Online? Expectations of an NHL20 Developer

The CEO of Take-Two Talks About PS5, Xbox Scarlett and Google Stadia

The sharing by Sony and Microsoft of some first details on the characteristics of their next-gen consoles has paved the way for a large number of considerations by members of the videogame industry.

Among these, we also find William Ho, a developer who contributed to the creation of NHL 20 at the offices of Electronic Arts Canada. The latter was in fact recently the protagonist of an interview with Electric Playground Network microphones. During the chat, the interviewer asked Ho to share his expectations about what could be the characteristics of the future PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett.

“[…] We have some ideas about it, you see, I think that something I referred to earlier is how we can allow people to have their own personal experiences wherever they want it – said the developer – I think it’s something probably the next-gen will facilitate: more power, more memory, always connected online, incredibly short loading times […] “. In short, there are several elements cited by William Ho, which he concludes with ” We’ll see “.

Ho is certainly not the first developer to express himself on the question: Tim Ash (BoxFrog Games (he discussed, for example, the potential of the SSD, while Lucas Rowe (Red Blue Games) highlighted the importance of the GPU. To find out what Microsoft and Sony actually have in store, however, we just have to wait for the two video game giants to decide to offer the public further official details on their new platforms.
