In other news, Geoff Keighley, host and organizer of the Summer Game Fest 2020, asked Ed Boon about his opinion on the new generation of consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X. The director of Mortal Kombat 11 spoke clearly about the impact that the new machines from Sony and Microsoft will have respectively, but his words were not by what we can imagine: Ed Boon focused on the loading speed of the consoles rather than on the power of the graphics.

It’s funny that when the new consoles come out, people are like, ‘OK, how are the graphics?’. I think people underestimate the impact that there will be almost zero loading times.
