"We are working as usual, first with a relatively small team on a next-generation project," said Hakkinen.
"One wonders all the time: Can the new consoles really be that much better than the previous? Rest assured: they are, it is a quantum leap.".

Disclaimer : I guess they talk about PS4/720 and are ignoring WiiU as a Next-Gen console.

Can't wait to see in-game actual-gameplay screenshots of the first gen games with big white text saying QUANTUM LEAP on them.

Blow my mind, Remedy. I waited for the PC version of Alan Wake, but after playing it and seeing the light, your sequel will sell a system for me. Make it shine!

Yeah, I just hope we're not going into 4K TV territory yet since comfy-couch mode has yet to even see high IQ polygonal games in 1080p. Save 4K and 100inch TVs for 2022.

Hey...

Wasn't there an episode of Quantum Leap where the dude was in a chimp's body and shot a gun at a bad guy or something?

Although changes of quantum state occur on the submicroscopic level, in popular discourse, the term "quantum leap" refers to a large increase.

There is no way we are getting decent quality games at 4K res, there'll be 4K video playback maybe.

Twice as powerful would be significant with the extra RAM and modern hardware they'll incorporate, if there's no jump to higher resolutions this time.

Well, Remedy has claimed to be working on facial animation tech with the aim of surpassing the bar set by L.A. Noire.

Edit: I don't particularly care if Remedy reaches its goal; I just want acceptable lip syncing in Alan Wake 2, because the lip syncing in Alan Wake is awful to the point of being jarring and American Nightmare's is worse still.

Yes, it does. It's a change of state, but still within quantum sizes.

I don't understand, what does quantum translate to in terms of numbers? I think it's 102.53 times more bettererer but I'm not sure.

To be fair, in the article the dev doesn't allude to any platform.

Reads more like a supposition on the author's part.

Yep. "Ob es sich um ein Microsoft- oder ein Sony-Projekt handelt, wollte Häkkinen nicht bestätigen." suggests that the author just didn't asked about Nintendo.
