Ubisoft CEO doesn't think PS4, Wii U and Xbox One will be the last console generation 

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot doesn't think PS4, Wii U and Xbox One will be the last generation of consoles.

Speaking with CVG, Guillemot said he sees a future beyond current and next-gen, due to manufacturers wanting control over their platforms; however, he does see the current form factor changing with more focus on the cloud.

With cloud gaming as a factor, he feels the quality of games will change for the better - if a bandwidth increase comes with it. You know, infrastructure and all that jazz.

"I still think it is not the last generation, because the manufacturers want a way to control their platform and the machine is the best way to have a specific access to that," he said. "What I'm happy with is, because we've been waiting for a long time, if we really come with high quality games then the public will come very quickly to buy them. So we will see a big increase in the market.

"I think that the cloud is going to change a few things. Now with cloud and the increase of bandwidth we should have the possibility to increase the quality of games a lot over the next few years. But I think five years is the right timing for it.

"If we can take advantage of the quality those machines bring, and if we can spend money, then I think we can make the business grow very fast."
