Will Wright: Wii the ONLY next-gen console

The Sims and Spore creator Will Wright has labelled Wii the only true next-generation console out of the three new console platforms on the market.

"Somebody asked me what I thought next generation meant and what about the PlayStation 3 was next generation. The only next-gen system I've seen is the Wii - the PS3 and the Xbox 360 feel like better versions of the last, but pretty much the same game with incremental improvement," Wright told Guardian Unlimited.

Wii, Wright continued, feels like a major jump, "not that the graphics are more powerful, but that it hits a completely different demographic."

He said in some sense he sees Nintendo's console as the most significant thing that's happened in the console space in quite a while.

Wright went on to reveal that he has an Xbox 360 at home "collecting dust in the background," with a Wii hooked up that "we use quite a bit." He doesn't own a PS3, apparently.

"I still, for the most part, prefer playing games on the computer - to me the mouse is the best input device ever," he added.

"Every generation it's like 'the PC's dead! The PC's dead!' But it carries on growing when consoles are flat for five years. At the moment I can get better graphics on my PC than I can on the PS3."
