Is There A Limit To PlayStation 4? Sony Destroys The Shackles Of Developer’s Imagination

Developers have been allowed to run riot over the PS4 to brilliant effect. Does this suggest Sony have finally freed creativity? (Dev, Industry, Next-Gen, PS4, Sony, Tech)

I completely agree on this. The whole idea of having more processing power is great and all, but it doesn't force developers to think about what they're actually doing with their game.

This goes back to the good ol' 8 and 16 bit era. The reason so many veterans consider that to be golden age of gaming is because of the limitations of the consoles. A flaw in your game stuck out like nothing else.

There's always limitation when it comes to programming. That whole removing limits thing was mostly PR buzz, and while more power can make ideas come to life easier, in the real world they have to work around numerous limitations on a daily basis.

My fear is devs will max out the PS4 too early. After that we will then see very little improvement in gameplay and graphics for the rest of its' lifetime.

Don't see that happening any time soon

Not necessary. Look at the ps3. They maxed out the power but they release better games every year so specs are importent but the vision is important too..

People that says specs doesn't matter are idiots. Does ps1 capable of running GT5 ?. I don't think so.

Well this is awkward.

I wouldn't have pointed it out if you hadn't been rude.

People will laugh.

I'm sorry but i don't see it rude. It's how they talk without thinking. Maybe i said it wrong way but it's true though

I hope you guys are right.

The difference though with the PS3 was that devs didn't fully get the hang of using all of the PS3's capability in the beginning. Even now we are still seeing better PS3 games graphically and technically still this late.

With the PS4 being very easy to dev for accroding to reports i wonder do if this will lead to them fully maxing out the PS4 in say 3 years.

I guess we will just have to trust Sony devs to continue to push it further than ever in later years.

As for now. I am just so happy with Sony's conference and the new games. Great show Sony.

I don't care about maxing out a system too early. I just can't wait to see what kind of games we'll get this gen.
