Mikami: Xbox One and PS4 specs are ‘almost identical’

The creator of the Resident Evil series has downplayed the PS4’s supposed power advantage over Xbox One.

TheSixthAxis reports that Shinji Mikami told Edge that there’s no real difference between them”, adding:

We only need one console. Why do I have to make two versions of a game? And when Xbox One was first announced it had lower specs than PS4, but now they’re almost identical. So either will do.”

The comments are all the more notable considering rumours currently doing the rounds that one very high-profile upcoming multiplatform next-gen launch title will run in 1080p on PS4 but only at 720p on Xbox One.

While there appears to be gathering momentum behind the whispers, for the time being they remain just that – whispers. Should anything more substantial on the matter emerge MCV will bring you all the details.
