I bet it wont be a multiplat developer that maxes it/them out

Maybe a sequel to (The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction for Ps2) would show us what the ps4 can really do (:

Maybe eventually. But right now the exclusives aren't impressive. The best looking games at E3 were games like The Division, The Witcher 3, MGS5 and Battlefield 4.

Full power? Are developers still trying to pull this on people?

Let me just quote Naughty Dog;

'People think of systems as glasses and ask: “how full is the glass”. Unfortunately, that isn’t how it works. Any developer who gives you a “percent of system used” answer is blowing smoke. The truth is that every developer uses 100% of the systems power on every game. Some just get more out of that 100% than others. And game after game, we ALL get more out of systems than we did on the previous title. Think of it this way. If the system is a glass, some developers pour in rocks till the glass overflows and then call it quits. They would claim that they use 100% of the systems space. And it is true that no more rocks fit. Some will even put in a rock too many and the game plays slow or runs funny. But there is still some space left for smarter developers. They pour pebbles into the cracks left by the rocks, and they get more into the glass. Then they call it 100% full. But some Developers will then pour in sand, to fill the cracks between the pebbles. They get even more out of the system, yet it is still just 100% full. Some developers go the extra distance, and they pour in water. Then the glass is truly full, right? Sure, but just for this title, because some of the rocks can be replaced with pebbles that do the same thing, if you work hard at it. And some of the pebbles can be made into sand. And some sand can be pressed to water. No developer ever gets a glass filled with only water, no developer has that much time, so no developer truly fills the glass. We just get more and more out of the 100%.'

Point is, "full power" is a lame marketing term these people like to use from time to time.

Physics simulation still lacks on AMD hardware.

It'll take a while for programmers to simulate lifelike Water, Rain, Environmental Destruction, etc on AMD Hardware. With XB1 & PS$ having similar hardware, Developer will get a glass filled with water, Someday.

PS4 uses PhysX, they signed the deal with Nvidia shortly after the PS4 reveal.

@ Angeljuice

Good read, first I ever heard of it. I can't wait to see the first games that will support the PhysX and Apex upgrades. I can only imagine PhysX on BF4 or Destiny.

Also that PS4 design on that page would have been pretty cool too. M$ will probably follow suit soon.

PhysX will run on AMD CPU, many PC gamer can tell how slow PhysX run on CPU.

PhysX is tailored to NVIDIA GPUs.
PhysX for AMD GPU? Sure Why Not.
That'll be awesome, maybe my AMD Radeon GPU can now run PhysX.

yup even the PS3 haven't been maxed out by multiplat developers..only selected pure talented studios got the balls to do it.. cough* naughty dog* cough

starchild1720d ago

I'd say Tomb Raider on the PS3 and Crysis 3 are right up there with most PS3 exclusives.

Whitey2k1720d ago

i think x1 will max out be4 ps4 i mean 5gig and a weak gpu and the ps4 has like 7gig of GDDR5 and its just abit slower then Nvidia 760 series

which is impressive considering ps4 has 7 GDDR5
