I really hope.
If its not, I don't know what I am going to do else :(
GameSpawn  +   1064d 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.

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

that's a good thing man ! can't wait to see PS4 and its games
starchild  +   1064d 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.
TopDudeMan  +   1064d 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-Tool  +   1063d ago
It probably still uses a linux environment though it is not needed too often. PS3 used a default linux environment for development.
showtimefolks  +   1063d 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

You're right at least we wont have to listen to

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

abzdine  +   1064d ago
this means more games for PS4 owners, and i'll be one of them!
firelogic  +   1064d ago
As opposed to a lack of games on PS3?
gunnerforlife  +   1064d 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.
ICECREAM  +   1064d 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
ziggurcat  +   1064d 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.
first1NFANTRY  +   1064d 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.

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.

Notice he said compared to the PS3... Im really excited that nextbox and ps4 will use similar development processes. This will save on development cost and speed up delivery. Now its about the exclusives, tech and services the two offer. If they both ship at same time it will be interesting to watch sales numbers... reaches for popcorn

Bethesda will find something to complain about again and use it as an excuse for their bugs and glitches. (And I love their games)
FrostyZipper  +   1064d ago
I don't, but I respect your right to your own opinion.

And good God the more I hear about the PS4 the more excited I become. Hope MS has something cool to show us all when their turn comes.

They are the worst coders in the industry right behind Codemasters. lol
kupomogli  +   1064d ago
Codemasters, here's this code book. It might be handy if you, the masters of coding, take it with you.

I actually haven't bought any Codemasters games before. Never thought of making a Resident Evil reference until now either.
NegativeCreepWA  +   1064d ago
Until any other dev makes a game as open as Bethesda with less bugs, I wouldn't be complaining about their coding skills. Bethesda games have way too many ways to go about doing something to be properly tested.
Kidmyst  +   1064d ago
I am hoping for a Just Cause 3 with Co-op. Oh the fun to be had with that in Co-op like the Mod for Just Cause 2 that allowed it on PC. I wouldn't mind the enemy re-building some bases, so I can blow them all up Again!
Typical-Guy  +   1064d ago
I'll believe you when I see and play the game... Not saying he's lying or anything, it's just devs have big talks until the game is hit with criticism.
Myst-Vearn  +   1064d ago
Just Cause 3 is one of my most wanted next gen games, I really hope they are working on it right now

I'm glad its so easy to develop for, developers are gonna go crazy for it, and were gonna get so many quality games
Tundra  +   1064d ago
More familiar architecture means less stress and more money saved. How couldn't a dev be happier.
iizMonterZ_  +   1064d ago
based on all the information for ps4 i think sony maybe messed up where you cant play ps3 games its good and bad at the same time.. when i get the ps4 killzone doesnt interest me at all.. im more interested in infamous second son and watch dogs..then if Call of duty has anything coming out im getting it. But as of right noww the ps4 has no good games.. we still have lots of time. so we can see what will happen in these next few months.

And I am enjoying JC2 right now.

The feeling of using a helicopter to transport a car far up in the mountains. And then drive it of the cliffs..

THAT feeling....cant wait to do it again on a PS4 :)
StrongMan  +   1064d ago
Cool. So Sony will have the easiest console to develop on this time. No more excuses.
TheKayle  +   1064d ago
easiest compared to other sony console? yes...ps3 was an hell to develop for....bad bad bad...

all the others being always easy ..also last gen

for this reason 3rd party games was better on x360

Lvl_up_gamer  +   1064d ago
Such a stupid comment.

MS haven't announced their console yet so how do you know the PS4 is easiest to develop for?

The devs are saying it's a walk in the park because the PS3 and it's all mighty CELL is a train wreck and the PS4 is basically a PC with it's off the shelf PC parts.

It's Strongman, what you expect. He is from another universe and making sense is not in his repertoire.

PS3Freak  +   1063d ago
Agreed, Just Cause 2 was one of my top 5 games of this gen. It may not have been the best game, but I had an insane amount of fun for about 70 hours.

Doesn't sound like a big change from its Predecessor. PS3 development was like a walk in the park too...:

It's amazing how angry people get when people say the PS4 will be easy to work with.This gen Sony took it into their hands to create a system that they wanted to make and now they made a system how everyone else wanted it.Of course if they created a system based on what developers asked for it will be easier to work with. But it's amazing how angry people get when developers say it. I think people are scared that the PS4 might just be easy to work with not giving the other consoles the advantage they had this gen.I think that is what all the anger and sarcasm is all about.Arrogant fanboys thought it would go the exact same way it did this gen but it won't.Sony obviously isn't going to make the same mistakes they did last gen.Now there won't be any 'Xbox 360 third party games look better' with the Wii U and PS4 on equal terms.I am sure many of you are losing sleep over that and why you keep bringing up Microsoft's unknown, not revealed console in every article.

PS3 was really complex & difficult to dev on yet they still managed to do very very well with software, apps, & features.. PS4 is a developers dream come true for home consoles so everything that's incoming from them is going to amazing.. Great power, tools, controls, network, etc... Nx gen will be fantastic & I can't wait to play the new projects everyone is working on..

Games like "Last of Us" are amazing right now with 17x less memory! Nx gen is going to be jaw dropping.. Easy porting, great exclusives & multiplats & even indie devs will have it good this time around..

Gaikai & vita functionality gets me even more pumped.. Add the new dual shock 4 into the mix & Sony has my loyalty nx gen too.. Oh & PS Plus adds even more! Lol greatness

If this is JC3...I am going to flip out. Who here did not tether two gas canisters in a public place and saw what happened? Right? Am I right??? ......good times.
