Speaking in the latest Famitsu (via 1Up), Team ICO head Fumito Ueda has said that the current generation of consoles is "about expressing ideas".
Ueda, who is creating The Last Guardian for the PlayStation 3 currently, said:
"As a creator, technical skill is important, but I really feel like this generation is about expressing ideas, about what you do with the technology.
"I also got the impression that, instead of talking about what makes games innovative and so on, a lot of companies were pushing Western titles hard, positioning them as a new 'genre' for gamers to try out."
He also admitted he was looking forward to Modern Warfare 2.
"It's one of the few games, I think, that conjures up what's going outside of the picture in your mind as well. I feel a serious sublime beauty in all of Infinity Ward's FPSes."
