Sony boss talks PS4′s philosophy, future & building something both developers & gamers want.
" The idea of the event was really to explain to people our philosophy, our vision for PlayStation 4. That we wanted a very focused approach on the gamer. A very consumer-centric plan." Good enough for me. :) "OPM This is the first time you’ve used non-custom chips for a PlayStation. Was it an economical choice? MD I think the main reason behind it is that’s what the development community wanted. That’s what the development community want in terms of ease of development and making the best games they possibly can. What we bring to the table as Mark was explaining last night was how we architect the system, to make it almost like a supercharged PC specifically for gaming. This is a multitasking system like most PCs are, but this is a still a console made for gaming with gaming at its heart. Making decisions like having the 8GB high speed system memory on board is just a massive win for developers in terms of the sort of games they can create and the ease of game development." Nice :)
