Beyond release date “will be announced soon”

Also, David Cage shares thoughts on 'no used games'.

A release date for Beyond: Two Souls, Quantic Dream’s latest PlayStation 3 project, will be announced soon, studio boss David Cage has said.

“Beyond is almost in beta. It will come out this year and the release date will be announced soon,” Cage told IGN at DICE Summit.

Asked his thoughts about the next PlayStation, Cage said while he “can’t really talk about the PlayStation 4,” he is “so impressed” by what’s currently possible on PlayStation 3 and “can’t wait” to see how PlayStation 4 fairs in comparison.

In light of recent rumors that the next Xbox won’t play used games, Cage said, “On one hand, I understand consumer’s position. Games are expensive. When they buy something they want to be able to trade it, most of the time to buy more games. I can understand that point.

“On the other side, I understand the point of the industry. Each time you buy a used game, this is money that doesn’t go into the pocket of the people that took the risk to create this, to finance it, to develop it. This is also unfair.”

He concluded, “So I don’t know what is the right answer. I don’t know if making this impossible [to play used games] is the answer. Maybe it is, maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s more about explaining and about telling people who really love games that if they buy used games, there will be a day where there won’t be any new games at all.”
