In an interview with Geoff Keighley on Summer Game Feast YouTube Chanel. The Mortal Kombat 11 Creative Director Ed Boon shared his thoughts about Xbox Series X and PS5.
In his statement, he said that people are missing the main point of the upcoming consoles. Ed Boon further said that people are not paying attention to loading times on new consoles.
“It’s funny when these new consoles come out and everybody goes, ‘OK, what do the graphics look like?’ I think people are underestimating the impact that the almost zero loading time is going to have,” he said, as reported by Twinfinite.
“That’s suddenly going to open doors that weren’t considered possible before and I think we haven’t even scratched the surface of what will eventually be done with those systems.”
Moreover, Ed mentioned that graphics being improved are just a plus point. What we will truly admire is the “loading and stuff like that is going to be huge”. Mortal Kombat boss also said that he was shocked seeing the Unreal Engine 5 Demo being played on PS5. He recalled, “that can’t be real”.
“We’re all gamers too, so everybody is kinda like… we’re part of that audience. We’re sitting there seeing… I was riveted watching the PS5 and Unreal 5 demo and going “that can’t be real! Come on! That can’t be real!” We’re all fans of that. ”
“To me, the graphics are kinda like a given. Ok the graphics are going to be better, but this new memory of handling memory and loading and stuff like that is going to be huge.”
His statements are very related to what was reported last week. In a statement released by Sony, the console developers wrote that PS5 is 100 times faster than PS4. Fans are currently busy paying attention to exclusives, graphics, and features. However, it is too early they realize that we are moving from an average car to a Hyper Car. From a technological point of view, The Xbox Series X and PS5 are huge upgrades from previous consoles.
Lastly, we have heard a lot about Xbox Series X. Some fans would argue that Xbox Marketing Team should learn from Sony’s talk less approach. While others would demand some clarifications from Sony.
Let’s look forward to the rumors surrounding the PS5 reveal on June 2.
