During Take-Two's earnings report, Strauss Zelnick, the company's CEO, gave his opinion on the rumored upgrades to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as Nintendo's forthcoming NX console.

Unlike his peers over at Ubisoft and EA, Zelnick seems optimistic about what these and other consoles mean for the future of game platforms. "In general, these are all opportunities," Zelnick said (per GameSpot). "Depending how things pencil out, a successful new console gives us another opportunity to release titles whomever it comes from."

Zelnick simplified his view even further: he believes the best developers are creative, innovative, and efficient. "That's what we aspire to be," he said.
