Bleszinski says Nintendo possibly out the hardware race and Microsoft and Sony about to “come to major blows”


Cliff Bleszinski believes now would not be a great time for him to make a return to the industry as he says now would be “the absolute worst time” for him to come back, reports GamesIndustryInternational.

Bleszinski wants to rather wait for the dust to settle a bit before making his next move as he believes the videogame business “has not been in a state of transition like it is right now since the video game crash of the ’80s.”

“I really think we’re in a massive state of turmoil,” explained the former Epic developer.

“I think Nintendo could possibly be faced with the situation of becoming a company that only makes software moving forward. I think Sony and Microsoft are about to come to major blows.”

He also cited that iPad games are proving to be popular and that the PC is going through a “wonderful renaissance right now.” Lastly, he believes the that we are ready to digitally download games “all the time,” and so he explained that the industry is all but settled at the moment.

“I just want to see what happens. In regards to the industry, it’s like the Super Smash Bros. of business right now, and I want to see if Peach or Mario wins,” he said.
