Carmack: PS4 and Xbox 720 will not offer significant leap

Posted on Thursday, June 21 2012 @ 16:23:24 CEST by

Speaking to GamesIndustry, id Software's John Carmack stated that he isn't excited by next-gen consoles because he thinks they'll be unable to fundamentally change the gameplay experience. Instead, Carmack believes virtual reality headsets could have a dramatic impact.
"[Luckey] is starting a Kickstarter to help fund the first batch at $100 a kit. The hope is to sell these at $500 a kit with sensor and a copy of Doom 3 it could be about $600. I may wind up subsidizing a set of this first batch as they are so incredibly cool. I'm hoping that we will have these available around August... to have a chance, to have an impact on how VR is going to go, as this is better than most high-end units."

Interestingly, while the demo we played was with an Xbox 360 controller, Microsoft hasn't shown much interest, while Sony has, Carmack noted. Not only that, but Carmack told us that he's "actually going to be talking with Valve next month." Carmack didn't say who this was, but we're guessing it's Valve's Michael Abrash, who's already spoken publicly of his interest in wearable computing.
