Heavy Rain creator believes current generation hardware enough for his ideas

davidcageWe’re on the verge of next-gen consoles now, but that doesn’t seem to matter to David Cage. The creator of Heavy Rain and Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy, in an interview with Develop, said that he is simply not interested in the next PlayStation or Xbox consoles. In fact, he believes that his ideas can play out on current generation gaming hardware just fine.

But to be honest, I’m not that interested in technology or the next generation of consoles. If we could continue with PlayStation 3 for another five years it would be fine with me. I think the main challenges are on the creative side than on the technical side.

Are there technical things I can’t do on PS3? Honestly, no. The limitation is much more about the ideas we have. When you look at the past, you realized that the technology evolved must faster than the concepts we rely on.

Quantic Dream, Cage’s studio, unveiled the bleeding-edge “Kara” tech demo earlier this year. It seems to me that he’s advocating clever usage of current technology, as well as brilliant ideas that look towards the future, than chase higher definition graphics and more polygons.
