According to Scott Lowe, Executive Editor at "IGN", Sony has yet to show a functioning PS4 or a hands-on Remote Play demo with under three months until launch.
The source article has been updated with a clarification tweet from Scott Lowe.
Not long to go till I get my hands on the PS4 :)
Scott Lowe is an idiot, they said they were using the console itself for the Killzone live demo at the Jimmy Fallon show. They confirmed it multiple times, with Sony and a KZ dev. Just read it again: Basically, he says that the dev kits are not considered the console itself, because the casing of the dev kit makes him worried how it will fit into the retail model. Flame bait headline, it should read "retail" ps4's.
Scott Lowe is a true turd. I fully agree.
he just made a fool out of him self... i mean this guy assumes devkits are PC and ps4 is yet to be runned real time cz of the caseing? i mean thats why you are a editor and not a enginer.. i mean how dumb can you get, and he tries to pass it on as a FACT? WTF
http://www.gamepur.com/news... Surprise! The Turd had to retract his turd statement!
Funny thing as soon as I read this article, I thought to myself, "didn't he say BF4's graphics didn't look that good on the PS4." I now remember why I really stopped going to IGN.com.
"Ok here's a quick crash course on how game development actually works. We're seeing two different things right now... That NFS picture is not what he's talking about in the OP's tweet. They are clearly running the PC version of the game with a PS4 controller. What the OP is talking about is PS4 games running on a devkit instead of a "retail" console. First of all this is complete bullshit. They are both running games on devkits. The XB1 devkits happens to look exactly like the retail console so the PR guys can say that it's a retail console but it's actually a devkit. The PS4 devkits look different so it's easier to spot. Three months before the console is released is WAYYY too early to run anything on a retail kit. Second, you guys need to understand what a devkit actually is. The devkits that are in use right now (I'm not talking about the very early devkits but what's in use right now) are pretty much using the same final hardware that will be in the retail kits but with extra memory allocated to debug tools and the ability to run unsigned code. There's nothing wrong or devious from running games on a devkit. That's how it always been. What did you think the 360/PS3 games were running on at E3 for the last 6 years? They were not retail consoles either, they were devkits since nobody has signed code that can run on a retail console until the game goes through submission...which happens 2-3 weeks before the game is released. All those tweets and articles are just click bait to create controversy. It's a non story and people really need to move on." http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
He made it sound like we have never seen anything ever on dev kits. http://www.cinemablend.com/...
Same could be said for Xbox One...as long as the consoles work when I get them on launch, I honestly don't care.
Loool i knew it was a matter of time before this arrives.... May the shitstorm begin. He later said it was actually PS4 devkits (Speced PC's =/= devkit kits) ---> http://i.imgur.com/iwoBMHy.... Basically he's considered that the PS4 is too small and because they haven't shown anything running on Final/retail hardware he's afraid of the potential problems in the future (heating etc). While MS has been said to show off all games on Retail consoles at gamescom. Basically PS4's design is too crazy for it to be true. Albert Penello confirmed Retail/devkit XB1's are the same http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Everything about the PS4 feels rushed.
LOL...your joking....right But I bet you don't think the same about the Xbox One, the console which seems like it has no straight forward plan and how it seems Sony caught them off guard with their announcement of their next gen console. Oh lets not forget...no release date yet
Xbox One passed Certification way before PS4 ever did earlier this year. So no the Xbox One is not rushed, if anything it now looks like perhaps the PS4 is being rushed if you will..
Did it really pass the FCC, with all of Microsofts lies I can't take their word of it anymore. When the PS4 passed FCC their was a big thing on it, especially on here. Wheres evidence of MS passing FCC. You know what, I'm not even going to argue. Of all the things Microsoft have rushed around doing since the reveal shows you they seemed less prepared then Sony for next gen. Sony seems like it's had a straight out plan since the reveal in Feb. If you die hard Xbox fans what to click disagree on every comment and try to spin stuff then fair enough...I'm out, I'm off to go browse another article.
Incoming RROD2.0 and more 180's. Sbillyblindb0ts' bodies are ready to get Xbone180'd, again.
Everybody and their mothers expected the PS4 to release in 2013. Heck, every N4G usera and every gaming site said so. Why do people think MS did not?
I don't know, they're not the ones making last-minute policy changes and firing a lot of the higer-ups in the company.
Ballmer was only a matter of time, Xbox One was just icing on the cake.
Couldn't agree more. Launch better go smoothly for them.
Like your troll birth
Oh my god you're right. Better cancel my preorder now!! /s
Yea I'm rushing to get one. Otherwise you're just talking out your behind. Oh look! Jcnba is here!
Did you seriously just utter those words? After they spent years figuring out how to make it easier for devs to program so almost anyone can program, Completely change their OS so that it would be able to perform well while using minimal RAM, manage to make the massive amount of hardware fit into a box smaller than a PS3 slim, traveled to many different companies to see what they wanted in their console, and you have the nerve to say that it feels rushed? Look at their competition right now. Nintendo is selling over priced hardware which should have been released this generation while receiving minimal support from other companies while also making it harder for 3rd party devs to receive support and most of what they have been doing with this console is re-releasing games from the gamecube era! Microsoft is much more f*cked up then that, They have been in an utter mess since the beginning. Showing their console off 2 weeks before E3. Revolving their Console around the Kinect, which is a broken system to begin with, that has to always be connected. adding non consumer friendly DRM, and a 24 hour check in, so if you don't have internet your screwed. having almost no games at the reveal and focusing on the idea of changing to your TV in a fancier, more expensive way. finally get some games at E3 some of which look like timed exclusives, They get very defensive about their policies lie to and finally decided to look and see that they have almost no support so they said that they can't "change the policies with a flick of switch" yet 3 days later announce that most of their policies changed, with a patch which they can undo at anytime, with reports coming out that they can't even get Ryse to run at 30fps and it seems like most of their "exclusives" cant run far above 30. Now please, tell me, tell me how you could possibly think that Everything about the PS4 feels rushed
Here we go IGN to cause a s*** storm which will most likely be blown way out of proportion. They've done things like this before, probably when they realise traffic is slowing down on their site Gregg Miller and co have had a ton of rewind videos on a ton of PS4 stuff, why was this NEVER mentioned.
Well this should be interesting, if that is the case all this hoopla about Microsoft showing PC like kits at E3 is the same gig that PS4 has been using all along, makes me wonder what the final product will actually look like...and that to me is scary...
Nope, stop reaching. Devs have already confirmed that they had games running on PS4 Dev kits.
Not really. The problem with the whole MS devkit situation is that not only where they using more powerful hardware it was also from a different vendor nvidia and it was also using Windows 7 not 8 like the XB1. Devkits are the Retail hardware just with more bells and whistles and a different shell to make development easier. Speced PC's do not represent retail hardware in any shape or form.
This gonna heat up fast. Bring on the fanboys!
This doesn't matter as the PS4 uses an x86 architecture. Running a PS4 game on a PC devkit with similar specs is an almost identical equivalence. When you were playing those games in the booths, you WERE playing the PS4 because, believe it or not, this time around it's way more about the software being unique than the hardware being unique. The dissimilarities of the hardware between PC and console are being picked apart next gen. A company could build a PC with identical hardware to the PS4 and sell them as mid-end gaming-computers running Windows or Linux. That's how similar the hardware is. God, you really have to spell the most obvious things out to people. You shouldn't even be complaining about this anyway as we already know what specs the PS4 is going to have when you get your hands on it and at that point it's no longer about hardware, but about software. And that software is what you got to experience in the booths.
Hey this isn't true. Look at the video "what did gamers think of ps4 at gamescom" it's somewhere on n4g and probably psblog. I would post a link but I'm on my cell. Anyway there is a scene of people in front of a kiosk playing war thunder (the flying game) and you see the camera look at the PS4, lights on, and a cord tethered from the system to the controller in the guys hands. Explain that ign? Someone post the link. Actually im going to see if I can do it from my phone. Note 3 don't fail me now!
http://n4g.com/news/1342125... its 32 sec in btw
The console was there but the pc dev kit was in the display below unseen from my understanding at least at comicon.
the video you are talking about came from official playstation youtube channel.. so how can you expect a genuine feedback
Im not talking about the feedback. That's obvious. I'm talking about seeing the actual console sitting there with a cord tethered to it while someone is playing a game. You missed that completely. @Jazz4108 I can see that being possible. It still seems odd that the cord is plugged into the "prototype" but is being used on a pc. I suppose since the controller is bluetooth it can actually be "hooked" to anything. Doesn't mean that's what it's synced to if that makes sense. Eitherway im sure it will all be fine for launch. Day 1!
It's Vuja De all over again.
LoL. That's on purpose, right? It's Déjà vu, not Vuja De.
LOL Yeah it's on purpose.
At last the Xbone and PS4 have something in common!
Its exactly what I saw at e3 but was disagreed with for saying it. Eveyone was on micro for having one pc by the lococycle dev when everything else was real. This is alarming so close to launch for sony to not show a working ps4 for demo yet.
Anyone have anymore of that popcorn? The show is just starting. People do this every single console launch. They torture themselves to confirm information that we all know already. They are all dev kits at shows. Imagine a final consumer hardware build being displayed and it fails during a live event. These console makers are going to take a lot of flack or PR trying to explain the failure away. But if it is a dev kit, they can say it is not the final hardware. So for that one of many reasons they are always dev kits. Quit torturing yourselves.
I don't understand, this is the same guy that wrote articles for E3 and Pax for PS4 related news, why now? If they were running on PC, they would've been caught out by all the other journalists way back in June. I also don't understand what he means by "pure aesthetic prototypes", if they going to make all that effort to skin PCs in PS4 shells, why not just make PS4s. Nothing connects here.
This does not paint a good image for Sony or the PS4.
This guy is a well known xbox fanboy this is just BS
This is not a good thing to be hearing right now for sony.
I can tell you're really worried. Just not about what you're pretending to be worried about.
Digital Foundry: Hands-on with PlayStation 4 - Wednesday, 19 June 2013 "We leave Sony's E3 booth undoubtedly impressed, with two key takeaways in light of the Xbox One's rivalling offerings. Firstly, though almost all launch titles on show appear to be running directly from PS4 hardware..." Digital Foundry: Hands-on with Xbox One - Monday, 17 June 2013 "Microsoft has a credibility problem. Xbox One launches in less than six months and yet its E3 press conference featured visibly poor performing software and a bunch of games actually running on PC-based surrogate hardware." Oh IGN, the MSNBC news of gaming journalism.
So what does that say about N4G for approving the article?...lol You can'tit have both ways. When IGN gives great scores for Uncharted they are great and trustworthy but when they report something that's considered bad, they are garbage... Double standards are hilarious here on this site.
Is anyone seriously worried that Sony can't deliver on hardware? Where have you been for the last 20 years? It's cute but that Xbox fans are jumping on this when Sony started designing this thing 5 years ago and has had a concrete vision of their console from the start.
Sony also gave us the Blu-ray player 7 years ago. Look who else uses that now. I think we are good with Sony. They do have the worlds 1st and 2nd best selling consoles of all time.
Oh noes!!!! people are hyped about a console they have not even seen a game run on it yet. grabs huge box of popcorn.
Yep, let's just ignore ALL the evidence to the contrary. Hell, let's ignore the actual content of the article. Xbox fans are pretty good at that: believing what someone says- often a misunderstanding- even when all evidence points to that person being wrong.
PS4 and Xbone are PCs lol. Why are people so stupid that they'd make a fuss over nothing?
What a retard. If it wasn't for Greg Miller I would stay away from IGN.
Yeah this guy is terrible they have constantly had to update and clarify his articles because of the crap he keeps writing with no proof to back it up.
Under every game at the Sony Booth, AC4 BF booth, BF4 booth, Watch Dogs booth, Destiny booth and some EA games booth at Gamescom. https://sphotos-b-sjc.xx.fb...
