David Cage 'not that interested in next-gen consoles'

Heavy Rain creator candidly unenthusiastic about the coming tech shift

Quantic Dream boss man and Heavy Rain creator, David Cage, has revealed that he's "not that interested in technology or the next generation of consoles".

This might come as a surprise considering Cage has earned a reputation for trying to push the limits of video game design, and has even recently demonstrated a stunning tech demo for what's still possible on PS3 with the Kara demo.

But apparently, he's not into all that stuff. "We invest a lot in technologies and tools. We're a very tools-centric company, with about 40 engineers all working on technology right now," said Cage.

"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," he went on to reveal.

"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 realise that the technology evolved [much] faster than the concepts we rely on."

When pulled up on his clear lack of enthusiasm for next-gen advancements, Cage replied, "I suppose it is interesting, in a way. It's more stuff to play with, I guess."
