The lights are on
Crytek's CEO and president Cevat Yerli says that the next generation of consoles will have much more in common with traditional PC development, giving PC focused developers the upper-hand in creating games when compared to developers of the current generation who focus solely on developing for consoles.
In an interview with Official Xbox Magazine, Yerli said, "I think the next console generation is going to be more a mix of the top devs - they'll be much more PC-driven this time around. In fact, I believe - oh, I can't talk more about that. Let's say this: PC devs will be much more comfortable than last gen console devs."
Yerli went on to say that it has been difficult for PC focused developers to adjust their technology for consoles in the past, but this time it should be much easier. He also continued to stop himself short as he tried to talk about the upcoming generation without spoiling any secrets.

Guess that's cool
So basically what they are saying is what we have known for a while now.
F yeah, PC gaming.
Well... yeah. Judging by the PS4 specs and rumored Next-Box, consoles won't be traditional, but will essentially be game/brand focused pc rigs.
This is exciting. I can't wait to see the potential of these devs pushed even more now.
As always, Crytek stating things that are obvious.
I loved when they got mad because Crisis 3 didn't get so many great reviews.
"Now thanks to obvious statements we can obvious statements because more obvious statements."
Really, this is their CEO?
