BioWare CEO talks a one platform future (CVG 27/1/09)

Post by VampiricPadraig on Tue Jan 27, 2009 12:25 pm

BioWare CEO Ray Muzyka has told CVG that he "can see" a one platform future, although he thinks "there are a few valid ways games could go".

"I can see it going there and I think there are valid reasons to do that," he said, imagining a future in which Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo aren't continually competing for market share (ok, just MS and Sony).

"I see Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo maybe having some issues with that [as] they might want to continue their platforms. Given that they create the hardware and they're big brands that have a lot of loyal fans I think that it may take a while before you see one platform.

"But the idea of a thin client that you could run code over the internet on and distribute to is a possibility in the future that I think could happen.," he added.

"You're seeing it on some PC titles now like the flash-based games that are arguably an example of that, where you're playing a game that's displayed and rendered and you interact with it on your machine but it may be running somewhere else. It's an interesting idea in the future."
