Pixel Enemy: In an interview with Develop, Avalanche Studios CTO Linus Bloomberg showered Sony’s PS4 with praise, but also admits it will take some time for some devs to be familiar with the platform.

I gathered as im guessing a just cause 3 game by the beginning of next year

Gamesgbkiller1895d ago

I really hope.
If its not, I don't know what I am going to do else :(

GameSpawn1895d ago

Yeah...just imagine the size and scope of the game if they make as much a move as they did from Just Cause to Just Cause 2. Just Cause 3 would be freakin' enormous.

Hydrolex1895d ago

Every developer is saying good things about the PS4...

that's a good thing man ! can't wait to see PS4 and its games

starchild1895d ago

Yeah, Sony made very good choices in terms of the architecture of the PS4. This can only be a good thing for gamers and developers alike.

TopDudeMan1895d ago

Yeah, I want to love open world games again. Just cause 2 re-sparked my love for them when that came out, but since then it's dwindled a bit.

It's says compared to ps3 dam it must have been hard

Omni-Tool1894d ago

It probably still uses a linux environment though it is not needed too often. PS3 used a default linux environment for development.

showtimefolks1895d ago

oh how the times have changed, ps3 is so hard to develop for i still remember those articles on daily bases on every site, I am glad sony has made development easier.

ps4 is just like a PC so i am hopeful now playstation fans won't get bad ports

andibandit1895d ago

You're right at least we wont have to listen to
"OMG theyz just has to learnz howz to Prokramz for PS3" defense bs.

NastyLeftHook01895d ago

@ ritsuka666

I think you didn't play ps3 this gen that is why you have a bad taste in your mouth.

Number-Nine1895d ago

square enix will still take 10 years to make kingdom hearts 3 and vs13

abzdine1895d ago

this means more games for PS4 owners, and i'll be one of them!

firelogic1895d ago

As opposed to a lack of games on PS3?

gunnerforlife1895d ago

some Devs shyd away from making games for ps3 because yes it was hard to develop for, but also all multiplatform games will be at a very high quality for ps4 compared to how they were for ps3.
i think thats what Abzdine meant.

ICECREAM1895d ago

will have games and fun for sure
it will be raging next gen
just like lion in his den
already shaking these micro things
brothers have stopped to sing
rejoice for the victory
holidays are the answer to the mystery

ziggurcat1895d ago

i'm glad to see devs are finding it super easy to develop for the PS4. it signals, to me, the end of crappy, inferior ports.

first1NFANTRY1895d ago

I agree. i can't tell you how many multiplats i skipped this gen compared to the ps2 gen. I hope we get first party quality multiplats for the ps4.

Bethesda laughs in the face of your comment.

The PS4 is the second console EVER to have the same CPU architecture as PCs (The only other console was the Original Xbox). Now that a console has a the most common architecture (x86/x64) Developers can build a game once for PC and PS4 (and depending on if the next Xbox is also going x86) and then basically just tweak the settings and level of detail and use any hardware specific benefits (Like the PS4 having GDDR5 RAM and the xbox have 32mb of the EDRAM, etc)

This is great news for developers AND the consumer because there should be less bugs and faster "learning" of the hardware. You will see the console "maxed out" sooner as well, but in a good way. PS4 now has x86 and devs have already had practice for, I don't know, 20 years?


Lol, from wikipedia:

The Intel 8088 microprocessor was a variant of the Intel 8086 and was introduced on July 1, 1979...The Intel 8088 was the first CPU to have an instruction set that is now commonly referred to as x86.

"You will see the console "maxed out" sooner as well, but in a good way. PS4 now has x86 and devs have already had practice for, I don't know, 20 years? "

So...a little thanks for PC gamers perhaps? We're not as cool as console gamers but we did, willingly, suffered through all those problems to ensure the X86 is a viable gaming platform in those years.
