The Xbox One Scorpio and the no-show PS4 Neo had been among the buzz words for E3 2016. Even though final release dates are not yet in the cards for the two higher version current-gen consoles, it seems that there is quite some interest in them.

Among these is “Final Fantasy XV” Game Director Hajime Tabata. Interestingly, he had only learned about the Xbox One Scorpio at the event. Tabata did not bring forward any plans on working with the device, though he is open to the possibility of bringing “Final Fantasy XV” to that platform but only after he and the team are familiarised with the platform. Tabata shares this with Kotaku, where he states that he can see potential in the new device.

It’d be really great though if we could have ‘Final Fantasy XV’ something we can play on the current-generation Xbox One and PS4, also give them that choice that when the new, stronger-generation hardware comes out, to have them play at that level as well,” said Tabata to Kotaku.

As far as resolutions go with the demo version shown off at the E3 2016, Tabata also stated that there are differences between the two platforms. The demo for the Xbox One comes close to 900p with 30FPS. The range for the PS4 is bigger with most plays reaching a steady 1080p and 30FPS resolutions, Gematsu reported.

Tabata is quick to point out that the team is still in the process of working out the frame rate for the final version, so there may still be some fine tunings and optimisations to look forward to.

Tom’s Hardware already sampled the first chapter of “Final Fantasy XV,” and from the looks of it, the game will provide some sort of challenge. In some aspects, it’s not entirely on a positive note, as the report cited that the combats are sometimes too fast-paced to the point of uncontrollable. The combat’s mechanics does not always go as intended, and not because of lack of following the supposed actions, but because of the flurry of confusion with buttons and moves.

“Final Fantasy XV” is expected to launch on Sept. 30. It will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One.
