Poll: Do You Think Developers Should Make a Choice and Stop Focusing on Cross-Generational Games?
Posted by Dave Letcavage
New game announcements reignite discussions
With today’s Mortal Kombat X and Forza Horizon 2 announcements, comes a staggering number of folks complaining about the fact that the games are releasing for both last-gen and current-gen consoles. Coming to Xbox 360 and Xbox One, the concern is that graphical and performance capabilities are potentially going to be diminished in an effort to develop a product that functions ideally on both platforms. Of course, Mortal Kombat X and Forza Horizon 2 aren't the first games to start this rioting amongst gamers, but it does seem as if we’re now starting to come to a divide of sorts.
So what we’re wondering is, does this bother you or not? Do you think that, moving forward, all games should be developed for one machine or the other, but not both? For Xbox One owners a cross-generational game could mean that their version won't utilize the full potential of the hardware, but for 360 owners, they have to worry about whether or not they're getting an inferior product that hasn't been top priority. Let us know how you feel about this by casting your vote in the poll and discussing the matter with us and the rest of our community in the comments below.
Should developers make a choice and stop focusing on cross-generational games? (19 votes)
Yes, I want my games to be the best they can be.
No, I want the option to buy for 360, regardless of quality concerns.
Honestly, I own both consoles and don't care either way.
