Developers React to PlayStation 4

IGN and its wonderful readers have been reacting to the PlayStation 4 since its reveal on February 20 -- even Xbox fans were floored. But what about the people who actually make games? After all, this is supposedly a platform "for developers by developers."

We reached out to some of the industry's brightest creative minds for feedback -- what excites designers, directors, and leaders about the platform, what might be missing, and what's Sony doing right?

This is what came back. (Dev, Next-Gen, PS Vita, PS4, Xbox One)

Developers love the PS4. They will make amazing games for it and I can't wait to play it. Looks like Sony will have the edge with multi plats this gen since they will have the most ram too.
TheGamerDood  +   1076d ago
It's looking that way! I would have thought that the hype that I'm feeling for Sony/PS4 would have settled a bit by now but, nope! :D

"Having 8GB of DDR5 ram is staggering.

We are incredibly proud to be working on PS4. Sony's passion and insight into connectivity and instant-access gaming is incredibly refreshing and encouraging to us as a developers. It allows us the ability to create immersive titles that truly engage the player at all opportunities."

PS4 is a killer!
Septic  +   1075d ago
Whilst Strongman does troll a lot, I have to agree with him here. Developers clearly love the PS4 and for good reason. Taking a plunge with 8GB Gddr5 ram is a respectable move by Sony and really goes a long way in making the console future proof.

Think about how little Ram we have on current consoles and how far developers have pushed the limits of what's possible. It's a big load off developers concerns. Couple this with the ease of development and you have one extremely capable machine. The competition has very good reason to worry.
Irishguy95  +   1075d ago
The only developers that let the Ps3's Ram affect them this Gen is bethesda.

It's also not future proof. The GPU is by far the most important component in gaming. The CPU and RAM just need to be up to scratch so that the don't bottleneck the GPU. However...they do NOT improve the GPU. Going from 4GB to 8GB will NOT somehow power up the GPU.

Alot of people say "Killzone was only using a small amount of the Ram! Just wait till they use more"...

And what will happen? Nothing. If they use more...nothing will happen. Maybe some faster loading speeds on everything(which are already fine and unnoticeable) however the GPU nor CPU has not changed.

Devs should say "8Gb's is staggering...because we don't need it"

The best way to make a beautiful game is not on the GPU its on the level of talent the developers behold, and its the only thing that is truly future-proof.

The extra added RAM is mainly to address the problem Sony had with multiplat developers. Sure it wont boost the raw graphical power directly but if you know only a little about programming you´ll know how much money and time that can be saved from spending time hiring highly-skilled people for optimizations and debugging, time and resources that can otherwise be spend on making their game better in other way than just graphical.

SDF Repellent  +   1076d ago
One thing is they better keep the cost low, 8gb of GDDR5 isn't cheap, by willing to subsidize and be in the $400-$450 price range because no matter how powerful your system is, ask 3DO and original PS3 price, pricing and advertisement dollars will ultimately determine the success of the PS4. Here hopping $399 at launch so even I can buy one at launch. If Microsoft undercut Sony by $100 or more, then it can be a tough uphill climb for Sony. Just telling like it is.
DragonKnight  +   1075d ago
Yeah, let's ask the PS3, currently sitting at nearly 80 million total units sold worldwide. Gee, what an utter failure of a console and totally like the 3DO. /s
maniacmayhem  +   1075d ago

That wasn't until the PS3 cut out features and dropped price (damn near three times)that it then started to take off as SDF was pointing out.

SONY needs to come out at 399 or they are pushing it, take a look at their TV market for example

No one is going to pay top dollar anymore for your "name" alone there is too much competition

Yeah that was expensive, but worthy actually, I'm getting the ps4 at launch, with all the features.
morganfell  +   1075d ago
"That wasn't until the PS3 cut out features and dropped price"

No, okay, no. Worldwide the PS3 outsold the 360 from day 1. They moved units faster every year including the first year. Quite a feat when you consider they didn't initially launch in the EU. During the equivalant time period of launch they sold faster. not reality. And trolling only makes you look blind and uninformed.

You see this is where shortsighted people are clipped. Yes the 360 initially led in over all sales BUT THE PS3 WAS SELLING AT A FASTER RATE. IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME AND NOW LOOK.

Sony cut their price because production costs dropped and they were staying competitive with MS and Nintendo WHO ALSO CUT THEIR PRICES - YOU LIKE TO IGNORE THAT PART.

It's amazing how simple fanboyism or adherence to sheep run anti-Sony media induces people to avoid the truth.

Your sarcasm was noted and glossed over for not caring. thanks for posting it again.



Yup, 6-7 years and at the tail end of it's life and the beginning of the ps4. They sure showed the competition. *wink*. Funny your lot like to show that around like a badge of honor. A dominate giant in the console field dethroned by a system that had less than half the capabilities and a software company on it's sophomore attempt in the console industry.

"Sony cut their price because production costs dropped and they were staying competitive with MS and Nintendo WHO ALSO CUT THEIR PRICES - YOU LIKE TO IGNORE THAT PART."

Sony cut their price when they removed BC because of the many criticisms from consumers about the price. This was ONE of their reasons and ways to offer the PS3 at a lower more competitive price. This was way before production costs where at an acceptable level and WAY before MS cut or OFFERED a cheaper version of the 360. Of course you ignored that part.

"It's amazing how simple fanboyism or adherence to sheep run anti-Sony media induces people to avoid the truth."

You speak of sheep, trolling and fanboyism but it's your own blind rage and absolute sony soldier like dedication that that statement right there is thick with irony.

Too bad that's an oxymoron. You can't note sarcasm and gloss over it at the same time.

But I'm not surprised by continued erroneous statements given how badly you're trolling.
SDF Repellent  +   1075d ago
LOL @ DragonKnight, Morganfell, ceballos77.

I know you guys are supportive of Sony through thick and thin, but com on, which part of my post is not correct? I never once said the PS3 is the next 3DO. If you read correctly, I said ORIGINAL PS3 price. The original price was utterly expensive and the PS3 didn't actually take off until the price was more competitive. Sony had to take out USB ports, drop BC, wait for the price of Blu Ray to get cheaper, and introducing the Slim model before the PS3 can get to the price that is competitive to that of the X360; in turn, it start selling well, if not better than the competition Worldwide.

If you guys don't know already, I have all the systems from the White X360 to the Phat PS3 to the Black Wii, so why wouldn't I want all the next gen consoles to be price competitively from the start so I can get all of them and start enjoying them rather than waiting for future price drop.

It is SOOOO easy to tell the 2 developers who AREN'T working on any PS4 games or haven't even had access to it yet. One said "nothing impressed me" and the other spewed off about PC. Just like the comments that have been made ad nauseum about the PS4 since its reveal. *yawn*
Saigon  +   1075d ago

i thought the RAM values were the same, 8GB, I thought the only true difference is the speed in which the data moves from the CPU chip to GPU chip.
givemeshelter  +   1075d ago
It is...DDR5 is faster however it has higher latency then DD3.
The reality is the power between the "rumored" specs of the Xbox720 and the specs of the PS4 are closer then they were then the Xbox360 and the PS3...This generation IF these specs are TRUE will see almost all games looking almost the exact same.
Saigon  +   1074d ago

I will hold judgement when MS reveals their system. Sad to say if the leaks are true, Sony system would have a slight edge. Though the structure of both systems would be very similar.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   1075d ago
So is this finally the Sony fanboys admitting that 3rd party games are better on the 360? At least most all of them?

Funny thing that I've noticed since the announcement of the PS4...

Suddenly the old six axis sucks, and had it's problems for lots of Sony people now. Before, when Xbots like myself would say that the 360 controller is hands down the best (besides the sucky d pad) and is better than the PS3 controller... the talk was that of.. "No way" "PS3 controller is the best" "There is nothing wrong with the PS3 controller"

Now that there's a new controller, suddenly all this talk about how happy people are for different analog tips and better triggers and a heavier bigger controller are all the talk.

Really? Xbots and SDF have been battling this whole gen talking about how the PS3 controller isn't as good anymore.

And now 3rd party games will be better "this time" on the PS4. So now finally, even the most fanboy of Sony can admit that the 360 has the better 3rd party versions of the game.

The truths start to come out with the talk of the new consoles. Love it. :D

The PS4 should excite gamers. And, hopefully, the Nextbox will do something similar.

Exactly. For anyone with a decent job I can't understand the mentality of "I'm not paying over 400". Why? I paid over €600 for my PS3 when it was released and have used it nearly everyday since. So that's cost me ~€85 a year since I have had it, or 20 cent a day. And that's at a €600 price tag. Not bad for a product I have used so often. Well worth it in my opinion.

deafdani  +   1075d ago
1/6th of a week's pay? Ok, let's assume you meant 1/6th of a week's pay = $150, assuming the PS4 is priced $450 and the dude is waiting until said PS4 hits $300 before buying it. (450 - 300 = 150, get it?)

So, if $150 is 1/6th of a week's pay, it means someone with that salary would earn about $3600 a month...

I work my ass off, and I work in a third world country where my salary of $1500 a month is actually on the high side of things for my job position.

Those $150 don't look like pocket change for me. If that's the case for you, lucky you, but I hope this puts things in perspective.

Now, if you meant 1/6th of a week's pay = $450 or MORE... dear Jesus. Can I get a job wherever you work as janitor or something?

I found it interesting that some of these guys are disappointed in the lack of innovation input-wise. Look, I'm 41, been playing games along time. I don't want to stand around waving at the tv or wagging my controllers in the air or have the smell of gunfire squirt out of my controller as I play a shooter. I want to sit and play a game. That other stuff is fun in small bits but it really takes away from the immersive experience IMO. Look at movies. How much innovation has there been other then 3-D? Why, because then it's not a movie anymore.

I want to play a video game. I don't want to wiggle anything, I don't want to have to get up and move around, I don't want wave my hands in the air. I want to focus on the game not some "ingenious" new way to interact with the screen.

I see a lot of people posting around that they haven't seen anything truly "groundbreaking" or "innovative" with the introduction of the PS4 footage. I'm pretty curious what it is exactly that they expect, since the change from 2-D to 3-D play, I honestly can only think of a handful of well known titles that were really all that innovative. There are of course major improvements in graphics, animations, effects, etc, etc...but are the games of today really all that different from generations ago?

Idk. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, these improvements still mean more impressive and immersive gameplay to me, and I'm really excited for the next generation.
mamotte  +   1075d ago
Good for you. In the end, is all about choices. It's not like any company is forcing a product so you have to wiggle at anything, even if you dont want to.

Problem is, there are some people who actually find fun in wiggle at something. So, can we be so selfish to make'em without any choices but become "hardcore"? I dont think so.

My point: As long as you're not forced to use something, I dont see the "problem" here.
BLow  +   1076d ago | Well said
Well, hopefully stories like this get into the hottest news section. You know the positive stories from ACTUAL developers praising the PS4 rather than the countless people on here who claim they know what the system can do. Overall, developers seem pleased with the PS4 and we should great better games for it. Isn't that the point in all this?

I find it funny that now that the PS4 is extremely more developer friendly now, people are still finding other ways to bash the system. Sony has taken all the faults of the PS3 and have seemed to correct them yet people are still hating. Easier to develop for(check)...improved controller with triggers, tighter more precise sticks, and bigger for all the banana handed people(check)...more social features like video sharing and cross game chat(check), a crap ton of memory, namely, GDDR5(8gb)(CHECK!!!)...improve d eyetoy for people who enjoy motion controlled games(check)... and the most important is that most, if not all, their studios are making games for the system.

Oh, and we have this little show coming up called E3 when we get to see the console for all those who had such a problem with it not being shown. More surprises and more details on the services and GAMES!!!! Not only more games but updates on the games already shown with the updated memory and dev kits. If you call yourself a gamer and your not excited by all this then please take all your hate elsewhere. And this is just for Sony!!! Some of you are amazing with all this hate. It will be 8 years since this generation began and all some of you can do is hate and call yourselves GAMERS.

Oh well, you guys can continue to hate and I'll be like a little kid in a candy shop soaking up all the greatness of this E3. Can't wait!!!

Well as long as the developers are satisfied I guess that is the main point.Gamers who harp on about the physical system can be ignored until they are ready to show it. Developers already know the power of the PS4 and what it can do and that is what is important to them not what color or shape the console is. I am sure most people were just disappointed that they couldn't say how ugly or how horrible a shape it or how they hate the color.i am certain they were rearing to go and then couldn't use all the quips they had all written down.

That is true. I was honestly amazed at how a dev that made a, IMO, below mediocre game talk so highly of what is to be expected next gen.

He should make a game worthy of praise first, before speaking as if he knows what gamers (or even other devs) want and like.

He then goes on a says next gen is basically catching up to PC games when the last innovative thing on PC was probably the mouse and keyboard.

Looking forward to finding out more about the PS4 and its features.
Revolver_X_  +   1075d ago
He means from a graphical standpoint. PC elitists may disagree, but graphics are slowing down in innovation. The PS4 and 720 will make leaps in graphics, but i think its gonna come down to how well the games run and what they can do on a technical level this gen.
Cryptcuzz  +   1075d ago

If you read his comment again, he talks about how he was amazed at first by Killzone SF, but then was disappointed when (to him) it turns out the game looked and played like any other FPS.

His words not mines.

I believe there is still room for graphics innovation even on consoles.

Look at games like Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us. That level of graphics is achievable with just 256 MB of Vram and is still no slouch compared to PC games.

Reason being, highly talented developers and the fact that consoles can be coded "directly to the metal". Which, given the right developers will create games exceeding games on PC running on just 256 MB of Vram in terms of graphics.

Now imagine the PS4 and its potential, keeping in mind the huge difference in available Vram and system memory.

Exciting times for us all I would say!

David Goldfarb did not make Payday.
He did Battlefield Bad Company 2.

And I agree with him.
I found the KZ demo very bland from a design perspective.
That scripted sequence hanging from the dropship was lame.
Hopefully, KZ4's novelty won't be limited to masquerading as a member of the other faction to infiltrate, and they will also bring better character development and level design to the table.
We already knew KZ would look great, and it didn't show anything other than that.
I guess they may have emphasized the tech demo aspect of KZ4 because it was the PS4 unveiling, but the game itself better have much more under the hood.

This could be true. With the hardware,ram,size of the harddrive and newly designed controller come into play. Sony really can't afford to take such a big hit on the console with there present financial status and stiff competition from MS.

I wouldn't be surprise if N720 costs are similiar. I think core gamers are more than willing to pay the asking price with the specs mention. Then as the costs are reduced the price will eventually comes down for everyone else.

The devs love it so any true gamer should love it to. I dont want to hear anymore bs attacks on the ps4 unless you want devs to just stop making games and in that case you are no longer a gamer. Sit down and bow to lord vader!. ps4 the return of the king!

SONY has done two things,

1 Realized the cell was a mistake no matter how much they fight the idea or their loyal customers

2 Listened to Devs

This equals a huge change in dynamic and puts SONY in position to take the crown once again

I'm really excited to see what developers are going to be doing for the PS4. I'm also really glad that Sony has put such an emphasis on developers and consumers. I can't wait to hear more at E3.

I think it's great that developers embraced the ps4.

I kinda feel bad for devs like Naughty Dog. They must be under a crazy amount of pressure and stress. Many people are probably expecting them to continually blow them away.
(phuny punny) lol

If tech demos look this good already then I can't wait to see how games will turn out two years from now.

Sony may have learned their 'hard to develop for' lesson by now, we can always hope.

The PS4 looks pretty sweet and I'll get one, but I just hope that this means that all the PC multiplats that I buy will be more optimized...

All the critics please sit down now. The PS4 is going to be a beast. M$ next console better be able to cure all forms of cancer.

Got to say that the comments regarding the PS4 turning out to be a super console is a little premature to say the least and pretty much laughable.
Ive been gaming for 26 years and pretty much seen it all before,for christ sake the public have only seen a Dualshock 4 joypad and possible specs!!
Although the specs do 'sound' good and the demo looking pretty decent we all know the history of companies 'showing' off the potential of the new hardware,as thats all what it is 'potential'.(ps3 Killzone demo,,,)
Ive had playstions,xbox's and pc's in the past and ill prob buy a next generation console but will wait at least 6 months after they are released to judge which one to choose as i have no preference to which company i choose,unlike fanboys of either console or pc's who have no life but argue which is best,,,the best console is the one that suits you, not neccessarily the next person.

yeah, but media likes to hype like crazy
i remember when Wii U was announced there was alot of hype and now nobody even remembers it... oh wait, they do.
they have to make the doom articles from it...

also Vita is another favorite doom article subject
and so was PS3, X360 and Wii in last gen

in the end... i couldn't care less about media hype and doom articles
