Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney is known for being vocal about his opinions and thoughts. He gave a piece of his mind to Microsoft not too long ago over UWP. However, he is pretty happy with Microsoft’s Project Scorpio and Sony’s PlayStation 4 Neo.

Speaking in a recent interview with Eurogamer, Tim Sweeney said:

I’m absolutely thrilled with this. It gives you the best of both worlds, the upgrade cycle of the PC which ensures that people always have access to the latest and greatest hardware and games don’t go out of date over a seven year cycle, together with the fact there’s a box you can go and buy – or two boxes – and you’re guaranteed that everything can work. And I think the configurations for developers are very reasonable

Both machines will add to the overall growth of the console market. He believes that the industry will be more stable if hardware makers won’t have to reset its user base every 7 years.

The idea of throwing everything out and doing everything from scratch every seven years is completely crazy. And everything Epic’s done with our new game development approach, involving these online games we’re going to maintain over time, it’s about building games where we don’t have to reset our user base to zero when we want to add new features

Project Scorpio was announced at E3 2016 by Microsoft. Meanwhile, PlayStation 4 Neo is confirmed but yet to be unveiled by Sony. Over the next decade we will see major changes to the way console cycles are handled. From the looks of it, companies may provide different variants of a base model.
