PS4 is like 'a really perfect gaming PC,' says Epic VP

An Epic Games exec has compared the PlayStation 4 to "a really perfect gaming PC," citing the console's combination of "phenomenal" hardware and convenient user experience. (Dev, Epic Games, Industry, PC, PS3, Tech, Xbox 360)

He know's PC's can have much better hardware. This is more addressing the fact that unlike PC's, which most are tied to the Window's OS eating RAM, the PS4 is built for Gaming and to be utilized for gaming.

"He also pointed to the memory limitations of the 32-bit versions of Windows as an example of how PS4 titles could even surpass what "most PCs" can do."

Keyword is most. With the PS4 (and probably the Xbox 720 unless it's Window OS running) devs are working on a PC minus the Window's OS.
At least thats what I'm getting from this article.

Either way, when these consoles release it should be good for everyone. I'm holding off on even buying any PC hardware upgrade (only need my GFX Card), due to the reason that they may release better equipment at a cheaper price to compete.

wow, thats actually intelligent. Im doing the same thing. Im sticking with pc but wont upgrade until the ps4 goes past the early adopter stage. A huge part of the gaming market is multiplatform, and I dont want to be under powered.
but of course some of the stuff said is complete bs, less and less pcs are running 32 bit and even less gaming pcs are. If you buy a pc today it wont be 32 bit. And windows isnt even that heavy other than using nearly 2 gigs of ram.

windows OS
as far as comparing 8 to 7, 8 runs better and uses less resources than 7 did. When you look at the 360, you can see the refinement they made in that OS and translated well onto the PC with windows 8.

My netbook has 2gb of ram and runs way better on 8 than it did when it shipped with XP. And i never thought there would be any windows better than XP. It had a nice balance of performance to resource ratio.

windows 8 breathed new life into an old machine and made it possible to enjoy using it again. i can only imagine how well it makes newer PC's run on much better hardware. As a comparison, my work PC has 4gb of ram and runs windows 7 and just doesnt feel as zippy as that little netbook. Even when doing similar tasks like office or surfing the web/youtube.

Just to point out, this is my own personal experience and not representative of others in general.

I cant believe people actually think Windows is some huge hog. Windows barely needs 1.5gigs of RAM, Windows 8 even less so.

Most PC these days easily come with more than 8 Gigs of RAM. Hence Windows pulling 1.5Gigs of RAM hardly matters.

People need to look past that. Windows gives you advantages too. People gaming on PCs have access to a library of games from 25 years back. Its all possible because of a solid platform Windows has become.

Its amusing when people cheer consoles and their optimization yet forget every gen they are left with a lack of BC.

The next thing they tend to boast about is console optimization, yes its there but it wont magically make the hardware over come limitations. As an example even today PS3 & Xbox 360 both get out performed by a Dual core PC equipped with a 8800GTX. So where did the console optimization go? The same 8800GTX today gets outperformed by 100USD GPUs.

The same fate lies for the next consoles. Lack of BC and will be getting outperformed far quicker by Low mid range PCs far quicker than the last consoles.

Windows, like most general purpose OS's is a resource hog. Only focusing on ram usage is overlooking the many layers of inefficiency built in to such an OS in order to deal with all the various flavors of hardware it might be running on.

Each level of abstraction adds more overhead. Plus there are all the services that serve no purpose if it were purely used for gaming.

A purpose built OS running on purpose built hardware can greatly outperform a general purpose OS running on the same hardware.

For the disagrees just take a look at the minimum hardware requirements for windows NT vs Windows 7. Back then I was running a 66Mhz Pentium with 32MB of RAM, I think 16 was the minimum and you needed about 100MB of disk space.

Today you need a 1Ghz processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of disk space.

So RAM has gone up by a factor of 62.5, CPU speed by a factor of 15 (actually it's much higher than that since modern CPUs do far more per cycle) and disk space by a factor of 160.

If Windows is so bad then why is it 8800GTX with a dual core is still beating current consoles? PC optimization is no where near as bad as console makers want people to believe. Sorry but these are just sad attempts by console makers to make the PC look bad so they can sell their consoles, while charging a premium on every game sold.

People blame Windows for taking up RAM, wait till the PS4 releases, in all likely hood 1-2 GB of RAM will be reserved for the OS. So will PS4 OS be called a resource HOG too? Def not as a machine becomes more multi purpose it certainly needs an OS. It just so happens the PC is far ahead of the consoles and next gen consoles will most likely be featuring OSes of their own.

I didn't say PC's weren't ahead of consoles, only that because of the diverse hardware and the software abstractions needed to support such hardware that PC's are not nearly as efficient as they could be.

In my career I've written a couple of RTOS from scratch as well as porting others and kernel work on desktop and server OSs.

A simple 32bit RTOS with full multi-tasking, threads, paged memory, networking etc. can run in Kb's of memory on a 32bit arm running at a few 10's of Mhz. Running a simple OS such as that on something of the caliber of a modern PC would just scream and would provide all the services necessary for gaming.

Once you start to generalize the inefficiency is inevitable, add in the legacy code needed for backwards compatibility and the overhead becomes quite significant.

Microsoft could use Windows on the next Xbox by stripping out all the extra crap that is unnecessary on a fixed hardware spec and I'm sure it would outperform stock windows by quite a margin.
T900  +   1044d ago

Again the inefficiency isnt ground breaking. Yes its there, and consoles are more efficient no one is doubting that. However the differences arent ground breaking.

If consoles were so efficient there would be no reason why the PS3 wouldnt outperform a 8800GTX. 8800GTX is about 2x as powerful and the result is pretty simular too. PS3 runs most of its games in 720p or below while 8800GTX runs most games in 1080p. So where is the console optimization?

Now yes all of us can start nit picking over the Windows OS. However with the amount of resources available today we honestly should be looking at the benefits of backward compatibility too. I personally own over 200 games on Steam alone.

Imagine if i had bought those games for a console. It would have ended up costing me upward of 7000usd, when next gen arrives i would have had to keep the old console too, just to play my old library. Hence personally i think its a good thing Windows offers such BC, in exchange for the resources it takes up i think its a bargain specially when resources are abundant who cares?

@Kevnb-Wise choice. No reason to buy a PS4 if your just buying muiltiplats and you have a beast PC already. I would just wait too.

@Reynod- He is trying to say in order to have a PC beat a PS4 or 720 you need MORE then 8gigs of ram, you need MORE then 1.85 TFLOPS etc. Why? Because PC isn't as optimized. ON top of this.....what PC game is even fully supporting all that tech anyways? PS4 will use that tech before a damn PC game does day 1!

I'm not sure you can even name me a successful PC game this year or last year that required and used that much power.

I game on PC and consoles and the one thing consoles have over PC is opitmziation. Period. To even have a beast PC, you need to have developers ac actually supporting it. Don't run to me telling me you maxed out Assassin's Creed or Mass Effect etc.....if you did your a idiot for buying a souped up PC for just a bit of high res.

I bought my PC for games like Diablo 3 (funny enough its coming to PS3 and PS4) Battlefield 3, Skyrim mods, Guild Wars 2, Planetside 2 etc.

But don't sit there making it sound like one can game on PC and just not have consoles as if PC is truly THAT good. I love PC gaming, but I just can't not own a console.

80% of PC games are just 3rd party ports to begin with. Still building a beast PC next year, but I'm building it for the right reasons.

Most of these gaming rigs also do not have the CPU and GPU on the same die (much faster connectivity between the two), 8GB's of GDDR5 to play with, etc... They are general purpose office machines that have had high performance parts grafted onto them in order to enable them to play videogames... while still having to maintain general purpose functionality. A console is tuned specifically for gaming at the hardware level, and as such will always outperform a PC with the same specs.

"Windows, like most general purpose OS's is a resource hog."

What you are forgetting now, is that the PS4 OS is likely to be a similar "general" purpose OS. Maybe it doesn't have as many features, but it certainly will have to do a lot of the same things.

The PS4 and likely the next Xbox will also have a slightly bloated OS.

Furthermore, Windows once it is loaded and running, it's background tasks takes pretty minimal resources. The RAM requirement isn't that huge of a deal either, because most PCs today have far more RAM than they need, that is system RAM, not even video RAM.

Windows 8 on top of this is designed with low powered devices in mind, so it uses even less resources and that is why it loads so fast.

Point being, today's hardware far exceed what Windows need and minimally impact gaming performance.

The real problem of PC is that consumers installs a crap load of extra services in the background that they don't turn off. The other problem is optimization due to too many different configurations, but even on consoles you aren't likely to even get double the performance that a PC can dish out by brute force.

From what I can tell, this is the biggest gap between a launch consoles and PC performance. I suspect that is due to the PC having virtually no resolution cap whereas consoles have 1080p and a relatively low price attached.

Even then at 8GBs of GDDR5 the PS4 is going to be costly.
vulcanproject  +   1044d ago
It varies game to game how well optimised they are but PC game optimisation has gotten better and better and will only keep getting better with better OS refinement, Direct3D advances and the fact the consoles are now x86 machines.

Certainly you do not need a massively more powerful PC to beat a console.

It isn't like you need 5 times the power of a console to actually best it.

You'll start to easily the the difference when a PC is twice as fast.

To be honest, that isn't difficult. We already have cards that are more than twice as fast as what is inside PS4- that wasn't the case when 360 launched it took time for PC to reach that point.

So PC is in a great position.

In fact I saw that an 8800GTX can manage bioshock infinite playable on 'medium' @ 1080p.

According to the devs 'medium' PC settings are a bit better than console settings and 1920 x 1080 is way more than double the resolution the consoles run that game (PS3 renders the game at a mere 1152 x 640)

Soooo......... Yeah.

Lets not claim PC optimisation is that bad and that crippling when 6 year old PC hardware still comfortably trounces console hardware without being like 10x faster.

Im not understanding where people say windows uses 1.5 gb of ram comes from. Vista which was the worst OS used 1.2, windows 7 uses like 800 mb and xp used like 300 or 400 lol.

consoles may be using less software in the background and have hardware on the same die and all. But lets not forget the cpu is designed with low power in mind arm if im not mistaken. Least that's what I heard. That's basically what your smart phone and tablets use. Just with more cores. PCS still have power house processors. And lets not even talk about the gpu. The gpu that's coming with these consoels is like a big joke. Thankfully console gamers aren't picky and take what they can get. Microsoft and Sony get this therefore they will give them the cheap dirt stuff. Most pc gaming rigs are way more powerful and only cost $400. lol If you don't believe me I can link you to the parts.. its not difficult to build one. yes for $400 you can get a pc that's twice as good as next generation consoles that haven't even been released yet.

But you go on ahead and defend the corporations that are playing you for a fool and laughing all the way to the bank. Enjoy!

It isn't just what Windows uses that causes problems, it's that it's so easily cluttered. But it doesn't matter. The PS4 will be an upgrade from my PC (which is an AMD 1090t, GTX 460, and 8GB RAM). So I'll be buying a PS4 instead of upgrading and will only upgrade my PC when the need is obvious again.

There are just some things a windows (or any other general purpose) OS will never be able to do. For example, if I have a 16GB machine and an APU (Trinity) installed, wtf do I need to set the shared mem size for the GPU and why can't I go beyond 2GB and why does it take this memory away from the OS.

It's not so much the HW, but there is so much legacy code in the OS (still) that for a console this either needs to be adapted (and I am sure even MS will customize windows for the 720 to allow this) or you need your own OS.

With these new chips with an intelligent OS you would have one kernel which handles that huge block of memory and you could just allocate it with whatever you want handing it over back and forth between CPU and GPU. This needs a massive change in the OS and it requires HW which can actually share memory pointers between the two (coherent memory model).

These are just legacy restrictions which a PC will carry over with each generation. It is almost impossible to overcome those just to be compatible with a wide range of HW...things which a console does not need to do.

- a shared memory model is required to not copy e.g. vertex data between CPU and GPU which happens quite frequently, still - even though you'd push more code to shaders these days.

Why would you want to go beyond 2GB on a APU like the trinity? Its not like trinity is any good at games and even then a game requiring that much Memory just wont run on the APU to begin with, unless you want to be seeing a slide show.

For dedicated GPUs they already come with super fast GDDR5 Memory.

So your arguement doesnt make any sense. As usual you are just making attempts to nitpick over non issues.

Again if Windows is so bad as an OS why doesnt PS3 or Xbox 360 beat the 8800GTX? its just twice as powerful as those machines. As per you if Windows is so bad and unoptimized why doesnt it get beated then? Yet every 8800GTX running on a windows OS even today runs most games in 1080p, yet both the current consoles run 720p or below.

Again i would tell you to look beyond the nit picking and see the huge backward compatibility advantage Windows offers. Tell me are you going to have PS2, PS3, PS4 all hooked up at the same time just to play your games library? I know i will be having just 1 PC playing the hundereds of games i bought over the years. No need to maintain old hardware to play everything i bought. Hence while there are certain disadvantages, i would think the advantages far out way them.
Ju  +   1043d ago
That's not the point. The point is, that a PC is holding back SW architecture because of its legacy constraints - especially in dedicated use cases which is e.g. gaming. As such a general purpose machine will never be able to allow developers to go the "optimal" route. Trinity is gen 2, Kaveri is gen 3, and the 2014 road map will have a complete heterogen memory sub system. And, why wouldn't I wan't more than 2GB? Why is it the OS's job to limit my creative engineering approach? Obviously you guys boast to have more than 2GB which in return means, textures must be cached in DDR and swapped out frequently - even on a system like Trinity. This is totally useless overhead since you never need to go across a bus unless the OS forces you to. BTW: One could simply optimize games for APUs which you would probably be surprise what you could squeeze out of that cheap configuration. But I guess it kinda counters even inhouse AMD products like a 7990...

Same will happen with PC ports to PS4 if devs don't take advantage of "don't move the damn memory" rule which still applies to the PC. Guess why they stick GB's or RAM to gfx boards these days, huh? So your data must never leave VRAM. Obviously.

Not sure why I still bother talking here...I guess that's so over your heads anyway...good bye

Hybrid memory cube.


Whats the point in moaning when in about 2-3 years you'll be able to have system memory on PC knocking out over 300GB/s compared to about 25 now. You could dump whatever APU you want on a die and have loads of bandwidth to share in a unified pool should you so desire.

Chip stacking is the real computing technology revolution and consoles will just miss it and PC will reap ridiculously massive benefits from it inside the next few years.

Amazing how people are still thinking in terms of 'power' when the most popular games today are simple, small footprint titles like subway surfers and league of legends.

Hell bioshock infinite runs on outdated tech and its still a fun game. The more visually complex and 'powerful' a game becomes, the more expensive it is to produce, and the less development risks can be taken.

This obsession with 'power' is a pubescent male fetish and a self defeating loop.

^^^You're bang on about that. People need to care more about the creativity and imagination of the content over how well they can push it's pixels. It's a completely vacuous and meaningless diversion.

I mean, honestly, I don't like LoL and I don't like casual games, but nevertheless there are lots of really incredible games that have been achieved without ridiculous tech. The SNES Final Fantasies and Chrono Trigger are still some of the greatest games I've ever played by a long shot. The visuals, the music, the narrative- they're all fantastically designed and I'll never forget them.

The tech has outrun the creativity- we need to forget about the tech and just work with what we've got to produce memorable and enduring games. I can only name about 10 games I've actually cared about this gen. We have more than enough power to make awesome stuff. In fact I think the tech is holding back games from being taken seriously. Instead of making profound and intelligent games, devs are fixated on making empty blockbuster film-esque graphics showcases. And people just lap it up and demand more of the same. They don't even realise what they're missing.

To be honest, one of the reasons I'm sort of looking forward to the Ps4 IS it's understated specs. They're obviously dwarfed by high-end PCs but who cares? Maybe we'll start seeing some more interesting games at last.

They should instead be making a comparison with something like this:

3. If the PS4 can't do 1080p at 60fps across 3 screens then it's NOT PERFECT!

I'm addicted to Peripheral view in my PC Games and so far I haven't heard if the PS4 will support this wonderful feature.

4. The PC is PERFECT cause you can tailor make it to YOUR GAMING NEEDS.

I was just curious as to what you were talking about? Epic and Microsoft have a great relationship and Microsoft has really good relationships with most third party developers, which is why they've been able to take advantage of timed DLC and things like that.

What have they messed up for you personally? I mean do people not realize how bad things would be if Sony or any single company had zero competition? You'd be stuck paying whatever they want, play whatever they want, and the list goes on and on.

We need all the companies how they are, each one playing off the other and that benefits all gamer's.

Funny too how quickly Sony fans turn into Gears fans, I wouldn't hold my breath on it ever going to a Sony console though, Microsoft has DEEP pockets.

While the PS3 is no high end PC, it will play games very close to high end PCs. PC uses brute force to outpace consoles, straight up powerful hardware. Consoles rely on devs working with specific hardware to optimize for it. If you were to get the same exact hardware equivalent as the PS3 and tried running a game at the same settings, you would realize the PS3 runs it better.

you are missing the point.Also the ps3 is nowhere near a high end pc, ps4 is a couple cuts away but not the ps3.
landog  +   1044d ago
not really dude, the year the ps3 came out, so did the 8800 gtx, it SMASHES the ps3 in every game ever made, its runs games at higher resolutions and way higher framerates with more graphical options

nowadays a $30 gpu destroys the ps3

ps3 graphics may look good to you, because thats all you play, to a pc game they look, and have looked for the last 5 years, totally obsolete and last gen

whan i played uncharted 3, i couldn't believe people thought it looked good, to me it was covered in jaggies, low res textures, looked sub-hd in many areas, bad caracter models

everyone seemed to think it was amazing though, and right there you can tell its someone who only games on consoel

pc is already, today, FAR beyond anything ps4 will ever do

1200p, 1440, 1600p
8x aa, 16x aa, 32x aa, 64x aa, txaa
60-120 frames

a game like crysis 2 in 2560x1600 looks better than anything ps4 will ever do

and crysis 3......shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit, even in 720p it looks better maxed on pc than any ps4 game will, and when you crank it up to 1200p, its bloody aamzing

ilive below, people bash on the system becasue articles like this.......and people on here get the idea from articles like this that the ps4 will be anywhere near a high end gaming will NEVER be close to a pc with a gtx670, gtx 680, gtx 690, gtx titan.....never.......

a gtx 670 can be had for $300, it DESTORYS ps4

People are disagreeing with you? My GTX 590 (1000$ when I bought it) gives me a TINY performance jump for Bioshock Infinite running at 45-60FPS over the PS3 version. That's only a year and a bit old graphics card. Now take a graphics card from the year PS3 was released and I highly doubt it'll push games like Bioshock Infinite, Battlefield 3 and others as far as the PS3 can. Just like if you bought a high end gaming PC now, you need to upgrade at least every 2-3 years to keep up with the PS4/720.

It has zero to do with raw Hardware strength and 100% to do with developer support. Barely any developers (Valve and such) develop their games for hardware that isn't recent. So you may buy that Titan epic 3000 beefcake edition now, but it'll be a load of wasted money in 2-3 years when PS4/720 is outperforming it for Bioshock 8 or Battlefield 44: Dinosaur edition.

Don't get me wrong, PC hardware is much more powerful than the PS4. But pure meat means absolutely nothing when nobody supports it. Which is where console gaming has the technical advantage. Developers have been saying it for a while. But apparently gamers know more than the guys working the hardware and realizing platform strengths.

_-EDMIX-_  +   1044d ago
@El_Colombiano- he is 100% correct. The GPU or CPU of the same specs will run better on consoles because they are made JUST for gaming, where as a GPU and CPU for a PC won't run those specs exactly.

Another thing to note is the optimization done for consoles, ram usage, programs running in the background etc.

If some of you know PC SOOOO Damn well, you should know that compatibility is a big deal with PC games. There are a lot of tweaks that need to be done to get a game to run at a level of a console JUST based on PC compatibilities.

Thus a PC with 8gigs for ddr5 ram, 1.85TFLOPS GPU etc will actually be slower then a PS4 JUST because by default its running LESS ram (Widnows OS and other programs running in the background)

I know this because HELLO! I OWN A GAMING PC! LOL! Getting games to work right and run at a high frame is almost like an art. Go on toms hardware to see JUST how much work gets done to get a game to run right on certain rigs. Because everyones rigs are different the answer is not as simple as some of you might like to think.

But OF COURSE a PC will be stronger then a PS4....but it means JACK when it comes to games. I'm sorry? Can anyone even NAME 1 DAMN PC game needs 8gigs for ram and maxes out 1.85TFLOPS of a GPU that came out this year or last year?

Mind you the whole "1 BILLION pc's" is a joke. Lets look at his silly number shall we.

There are over 60 MILLION GAMING PC's out, of the 60 many run this "GTX 560" or better? How many use 8gigs of ram? I'm sure if developers knew....they would had made some of those next gen launch games on PC already.

Theres a reason why they haven't, its because no one knows. All they know is its less then half that even own such a rig...why? Cause you don't even NEED such a rig to play a game, why would MOST own something that is unessarry to even do the task?

So less then half is about 30 to 20 million.....and PS3 is at 80 million. LOL! High end gaming is like owning a sports car in a city with no roads....i mean its nice to look at, to bad no one else cares to make a road to actually take advantage of it.

I own a HD 5770 in my rig I can max out BF3 easy.....why on earth would I need better? I'll upgrade AFTER PS4 comes out, cause no one is making a PC game worth a damn until AFTER those PS4 and 720 ports start hitting PC and start getting people to start buying parts again.

Give it a blasted Rest! We Know High end rigs are amazing and they outpace Consoles
It's always been the case! You pc gamers quit trying to convince console gamers they need PCs to enjoy games.

Stay in your niche market of upgrading your cards to enjoy minimal and very negligible performance boost for the same experience in multiplat game.

And Please stop bring up consoles specs and comparing it to a graphics card as if consoles are less than the sum of their parts, games on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 are still getting games that look remarkable even with PCs being ahead.

It's a moot point. Consoles aren't PC's and by virtue simply can't be labeled as you do. Fact Console Exclusives will be what innovates and moves the industry forward. It isn't about TFLOPs and $1000 graphics cards.

you bring up a point of the GTX 8800 being released the same time as the PS3,.it out performed the PS3 because it shipped with more ram than the PS3 shipped with, while the PS3 had split pool of rams. GTFO with the crap comparisons. It still stands as a point that falls on def ears.

PC gaming is a niche market that is largely dependent on the Console market, engineers and developers, which moves the innovation of the industry forward.

So scream all you want about PC gaming being better, at the end of 6-7 years 90+ million PS4s and 90+ million XBX8 will have surpassed the notch Market of PC elitists and once again the news outlet and industry insiders will be looking forward to the next set of consoles to carry the torch for innovations. Not graphics cards on a memory hog OS PC that runs games you can enjoy on consoles that don't even use the Ram to its full potential at a much higher price.
Axe99  +   1044d ago
Well said, but keep in mind that consoles also benefit from the hardcore PC crowd, that pay for a lot of the development that then goes into console hardware. It's a virtuous circle, as the console hardware then takes those improvements to a wider audience, which provides the install base necessary to support the development of games like the Assassin's Creed and numerous other AAA franchises.

It would be very hypocritical if us who prefer the PlayStation to all of a sudden start loving gears would be like all the metal gear 'cutscene' haters all of a sudden championing the series... it does happen, luckily I own all of the gears on the 360 except one just released so I wouldn't feel any way to welcome it to sonys platform.

Epic already released games on the PlayStation 3, it's not like they hated Sony or anything. The only franchise not on PS3 was Gears Of War, which Microsoft published, funded and advertised for.

1. You dont need top of the line PC to beat a PS4. Mid range PCs will do just that.

2. Mid range PCs that will out perform the PS4 will cost about 500-700usd, Hence if people cant afford that then they cant afford the PS4 either.

BTW PS4 games will cost more ever accounted for that? PCs games always tend to sell 10-20usd cheaper than console versions, Nevermind the Steam sales (those completely make console prices look like a rip off).

Lastly for any one whos been gaming on PC this gen and has a good library. Sticking with PC as main platform next gen makes more sense as you can play all your old games in one place. With PS4 good luck, cant play any of your PS3 games.

there is no $500 mid-range PC, that's low-end unless you build it yourself by looking around for cheap parts and other deals. Mid-range PCs cost between $900-1500 at the very least while high-ends are between 2000-3000 dollars with brands like Alienware.

That's exactly the point that people are missing. People over-exaggerate the price of a PC while forgetting that everyone uses a PC for other purposes than gaming.

Axe99  +   1044d ago
The one thing that a lot of PC-only gamers seem to forget, is that it takes a bit of research, effort and time to build a PC. For gamers with a job, family and responsibilities, time (or interest) isn't necessarily there. Comparing the price of a prefabricated unit to a collection of parts that need to be assembled makes as much sense here as it does in any other industry (ie, none).

That, and the other big issue with PCs is the general work that's required to get things work. PC-only gamers are quick to talk up compatibility, but it's actually harder just getting current-gen games to run on PC than on console, let alone older classics like Master of Orion 2. It's far, far easier for me to play Panzer General and Allied General on my PS3 (then PSOne version of course) than it is on PC. Yes, it's easier to eventually get something to work on PC, but it's hardly the cut-and-dried argument it's made out to be.

I love gaming on PC - there are a range of genres (particularly flight, grand strategy and MMOs) that are far better supported than on console, and it's wonderfully flexible - but with that flexibility comes a whole lot of hassle, which is why, if I have the chance, I'll play a game on console if it's available and runs reasonably (which it does in the vast majority of cases), as I prefer the ease of use to the extra resolution and framerate.

The fact that we have these choices is a good thing - I'm not knocking PC gaming at all (hell, I do enough of it), and I'm not knocking console gaming - but I think we all need to realise not all gamers are the same, and some gamers prefer different things to others. I personally prefer the ease of use (ie, more gaming, less playing around with tech) of a console setup, while others prefer bleeding-edge frame rates and resolutions, and the ability to put on texture mods and have the latest lighting models. As long as we're all happy, we're all good :).
tommygunzII  +   1043d ago

Of course the ps4 is like the perfect gaming machine. It's LIKE A PC!!!!

PS3 is a train wreck of a console to develop for. PS4 is like a PC so it's much easier to develop on. Ever Developer is going to say the same thing...oh wait, they all already have.

The PS4 is going to be a great console. Period. It's been designed with the developers in mind. It's off the shelf PC parts the developers are accustomed too. We will see great looking games right out the gate when the PS4 releases.

I predict that the ps4 will be easier to program for then the 720. Not that the 720 will be difficult, just that the lack of a custom PS4 will make it easier for developers to work with since it's closer to a PC then the 720 will be since the 720 will be more customized.

The PS4 is built very much like the 360 and the 720 is built very much like the PS3.

When games developers make games for pc they use direct x which belongs to the windows family, they have become masters of this thing called direct x. So you say the ps4 will be more easier to develop for because its more like a pc, the 720 will be harder, because what? its based on direct x 11 the stuff that games developers have been using for years.

You know what I hear when PC gamers start comparing PC to Consoles!?

Yadda yadda yadda CPU, yadda yadda GPU, Flops yadda yadda FPS, Graphics........

I get it PCS destroy Consoles! Which is why they shouldn't be spoken of in the same sentence./s

Some pcgamers still think They know everything. Epic says flat out that ps4 is a better gaming machine than most pc's. Most...not every single one. To call epic liars is not a great move in my book. What do you pcgamers know of games development anyway, and how much experience do you have with development for the ps4. None...though so. Too many selvapointed experts on these forums IMO

I know quite a bit about games development and I must have missed all these people calling epic liars. I don't really think it is a compliment if you are saying that the console is better than most PCs. I'm pretty sure that is just common knowledge.

I'm so bored of PC specs willy waving. The new wave of consoles is gonna be great for PC & raise the bar. PC is gonna be great for incredibly high resolutions & frame rates, but the games are gonna be the same.

I'm going to listen to Carmack over the PC "experts" on here. He said Sony made smart engineering choices and fixed console architecture offers double the same PC spec performance . I think he knows a little more than moaners trying to justify expensive purchases.
All provide high quality games .

I'm happy that hes taking the PS4 seriously instead of a joke like the Wii U.

Epic lines its own pockets for posting more BS, 32 bit windows, lol... Who even uses that anymore, 2 gig of ram yeah if your using vista. Come on really, i got 8 gig running windows 8 and it uses 1.2 gig of ram. If your pc is a 32bit version of windows, then it isn't a gaming pc... Come on Mr game developer talk some fricking sense up in this mess.

Pc's with a decent card (580 or 6970 and up) can do multi monitor games. My card can do 2k and 4k...

I dont even think you will be getting 60fps at 1080p. 30fps 1080p easily though, but do that what pc's have been doing for a considerable amount of time

Let's be realistic here. It's true what they are saying. Most of the people own normal computers which mean low specs like windows 7 32-bit. It's reality right now. I don't see one person in my neighbor who own a computer pc that have higher then 2GB of ram. Maybe after 3 or 4 years you will see people own powerful pc's but right now ps4 is like owning a 4k tv in these days.

Ps4 is gonna be great for few years , All thee developers are happy with it even pc developers. Why fighting each other when we should be excited for it. Pc is a Pc , Ps4 is a console so it's unfair to compare them.
