Shinji Mikami, creator of Resident Evil, has said that there is “no real difference” between next-generation console specifications. “We only need one console,” he said in an interview with Edge magazine, as reported by The Sixth Axis.

“Why do I have to make two versions of a game?” he continued. “And when Xbox One was first announced, it had lower specs than PS4, but noe they’re almost identical. So either will do.”

Mikami’s next game is The Evil Within for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, as well as next generation consoles. It’ll make use of id Software’s brand new graphics engine, id Tech 5, and is designed as a return to classic survival horror, a genre in which Mikami has been instrumental. Some gruesome new screenshots were released yesterday.
