Atari Founder: "Xbox 720 Will Dominate The Next-Gen, Sony Software Tools Are Lame"

Atari founder Nolan Bushnell has chosen Microsoft to emerge victorious against Sony in the next-generation console race. Speaking on GameTrailers' Rollin' With Nolan, the industry veteran claimed Sony will be held back by "lame" and difficult-to-understand software tools.

"I personally believe Microsoft is in a superior position, and the reason is Sony, whenever they change consoles, the software tools that they have are lame," Bushnell said. "A lot of times in the past they were in Japanese; not well documented and getting the software development community up to speed…they may have been able to do it in Japan, but the American software community just says 'Oh boy, what a pain.' And a lot of people don't realize how strong the software community is at making the hardware platform sing and dance."

Bushnell's comments come after a number of high-profile developers have praised the PlayStation 4. Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford said in April that he is "really excited" about the platform, celebrating Sony for inviting Gearbox to the table to brainstorm ideas for the PS4.

Meanwhile, id Software veteran John Carmack said he is pleased with the PS4 system specs. In addition, Avalanche Studios cofounder Linus Blomberg said the PS4 will outpower most PCs for years to come.

Bushnell argued that it is software that drives hardware sales and that Microsoft will outperform Sony in this department, thus dominating the next-generation console market.

"Microsoft, because of their strong software tools, will end up with much better products sooner [and] easier, in my estimation," Bushnell said. "And with that, I think will be an advantage. And also don't forget, Microsoft actually has so much money to defend this. Plus, they have a good infrastructure with the [Xbox Live Arcade], with their online world."

Bushnell also cited Sony's online presence as a weakness. He said the company "really needs to get their action together" to fix their "god awful" online infrastructure.

Regarding what he believes will be vital for both next-generation platforms, Bushnell said virtual reality products like the Oculus Rift will be "really important" for future platforms, so long as latency is kept in check. He also noted that it would "make sense" for these new platforms to have 1TB hard drives, due to the relative affordability of memory today.

Microsoft is rumored to have its next-generation platform on store shelves this holiday season. Though the company has yet to reveal its official plans, Microsoft is rumored to announce the Xbox 720 in May.

He's half right. Sony looks like they have their sh*t together this gen. Guess he couldn't afford a dev kit.

But obviously he hasn't been in tune with the news. n*ggas are upset and its not with Sony.

MS has all the momemtum right now, they are definitely in the drivers seat coming into the next gen... and they have always had easy to program machine's... i'm sure he's seen both system's already or at least early builds of both systems... It don't matter what system is easier to program for or has better tools...it matter's which one has the best games...

Because this thread isn't saying much. It's one mans opinion about the future based off what's happening now.

pretty much. developers were pissed at how hard it was to develop games for the ps3 because it required its own special coding compared to how they could develop games on a pc and just transfer them over to the xbox360 coding with a dev tool.

xbox games this goes back to the OG xbox is basically a simple port of PC developed game. ps3 isnt that way ps2 wasnt that way either.

sony is smart in taking the MS route by going PC to console easy port route with the ps4 cause it will make it easier for 3rd party companies to make games. it will level the playing field for 3rd party games, i honestly think with the next wave of consoles we will no longer see sh*t like what happened with skyrim for the xbox360 vs ps3 and other games.

Because nobody really gives a fu*k when we've all seen game footage with our own eyes & actual devs are saying the complete opposite.

Based on some of his comments, he seems like a sour old man whose atari jaguar got manhandled by the Japs in the 90'sl

Everything we've heard about Xbox 720 so far has been opinion and rumor

The company actually making the damn thing hasn't even acknowledged the fact that it exists
