    The big takeaway from this interview is that it’s hard for game developers to make solid moves at the end of a console generation. No one wants to bet their company on a console system that could be obsolete by the time their game comes out. On the other hand, no one wants to bet their company on an untested console system, as well. It’s entirely possible that any given next-gen console won’t measure up. Then there’s the third hand, where the game company has to produce something just to keep the money flowing. Where should they place their bets?

    This is why the video game industry is a valley of madness.
