"We recently got in touch with Alexander Trifonov who is the international PR for Gaijin Entertainment, the developers behind the upcoming free to play War Thunder." (PS4, War Thunder)

If that's true, that means Guerrilla has had dev kits for a lot longer than most devs, since they had 4 Gb to work with.
KwietStorm  +   306d ago
Well Guerrilla is basically Sony, so yea. Also, Gaijin said they got the game up and running in less than 3 months of getting their kits, so it wasn't even that long ago either.
WeAreLegion  +   306d ago
Thanks for the info. That makes sense. I imagine all first party developers have had the dev kits for at least a year and a half now.

I'm kinda tired of free to play games. I play Guild Wars 2 a little and that's cool, however I think in the end, a lot of people spend more than $60 if they want to buy in-game currencies, upgrades, limited time items, etc. Yeah you can play them without buying anything however there's always going to be an incentive to fork over money. Maybe it's just $10 here and there, but it adds up fast. I think that free to play may be taking games in the wrong direction. Just look at that stupid Candy Crush game, raking in over $600,000/day? Ridiculous

I play Candy crush im on lvl 141 and haven't spent a dime or a penny on anything.

i played DCUO for free for a couple months then rebought the subscription.

Pay to play is good for people with Jobs and kids and less then an hr to play on weekdays.

I don't pay on these games. Pay to win is a problem ill give you that but some games just charge you for shortcuts which sucks with people who just spend alot of time and money but i can see it being helpful to people like me who have a 10month old and less then 15% of my past gaming time. Especially in games where my buddies have no responsibilities.

I do agree with you though in alot of ways but i see a positive to some of this for me only.

No sugarcoating it or anything just straight to the point "very powerful gaming machine" the way it should be with every new generation. ;)
worldwidegaming  +   306d ago
Most console owners have no real idea what they are talking about so the real message gets lost between all the stupid people. Yeah, its very sad the smart ones who know whats going on get muddled out.
Lets talk about games and story, not graphics.
KwietStorm  +   306d ago
Just because some of us understand the technical side, because we take interest in it, doesn't mean we are the "smart ones" while other people are "stupid." That's unnecessary.
Irishguy95  +   306d ago
No the stupid ones are the ones who talk about the technical side without actually knowing it. The ones who say "I'll take the devs word over yours" or simply believe the Ps4 actually IS the most powerful machine, when we actually have the specs of the systems and immediately know how powerful it actually is(which again, neither of the next gen systems are actually 'very powerful' by todays standards). Maybe if they released 3 years ago they could be called that.

I think the majority of gamers...especially on N4G...game on both consoles and PC.
Irishguy95  +   306d ago
You would be wrong I think. N4g is a console site, and more specifically, at the moment a Ps fan site.
WeAreLegion  +   306d ago
All of the people I've met on N4G are friends with me on the PSN and Steam. That's what I'm basing it on. Do you not game on both consoles and PC?
Irishguy95  +   306d ago
Yes I do WeAreLegion, I have everything since the Nes besides the Wii U, Sega, and...that's it actually, I have/had everything elsep including PC. However, go into a common fanboy article look at the agree/disagree ratio and you'll see.

You could have fooled me. Coming on here is like being in a boxing match sometimes. I game on both console, but the minute I give my view point on something the Sony guys are ready to bash your head in.

November sure is taking a long time to get here.
Somebody make time go faster, please!!
Sadist3  +   306d ago
It all be cool if we got some proven developers to make these claims, instead of PS developers. Of course they're gonna say how powerful the console is. I wanna hear this from developers who make games for big publishers like EA, Ubisoft, not some guy that is making an exclusive indie game for Sony. That's like the developers of Forza saying how powerful the X1 is. Of course you're gonna say that. "The PS4 is so awesomely powerful, you can do so much so I decided to make a game that has a plane in it because its so powerful."
ssj27  +   306d ago
What are you talking about?
Many 3 party devs have already said so, even ex xbox 360 and PC devs have price the PS4 technology because it's indeed a amazing technology, yes they could have made it way more powerful but they keep things simple and easy, that will make the game easy and simple to make and the rest depends on the talent of the developers.

This devs are far from been PlayStation exclusive devs, they are a independent dev porting a PC game to the PS4 and they may port it to the xbone soon, maybe not.

Taken from an Article on N4G War Thunder Dev talking

" They need to stop talking and start basically doing something. Because right now you need to certify your servers with Microsoft, you need to make… it’s not yet clear if there will be updates. If you can’t make updates without Microsoft [approval] they ruin the idea of online gaming, basically. They’ve said there’ll be some kind of opportunity [for that] but haven’t yet said quite exactly how it’ll be working."

Yes and alot of people don't understand security. Why you think networks get hacked. You just don't let any Dev on your Network to run free. I can understand why Microsoft has things in place that Sony does not.

Like what happened to xbox live a few days ago

It may or may not have been hacked

ps3=pc back in the day.
ps>>>ps4 today, yetalone in few months.

See what happened 7 year later on ps3? Resolution is down to shit, frame rate problem plague 50% of the game released.

I can agree a ps4 is a nice casual playing machine, but I don't like how they praise it like jesus is comming back. The real deal is that in 3 years pc gamer will be playing in 4k and consoles gamer won't even get 1080p
Bolts  +   305d ago
3 years?? PC gamers are doing 4k today. Right now even mid tier PC gamers are already playing their BF 3 in 1440p at 60 FPS.

The fact that in 2013 some of these so called nextgen console games can't even do 1080p makes me want to puke. Seriously Sony and MS, are we really waiting until 2020 before your, next, nextgen console can do 1080p in all games? Because if you can't then tablets will completely roll these underpowered consoles in 5 years easily.
Azfargh  +   305d ago
Yeah, you must be bionic to really notice fullHD from ultraHD.

I don´t mind at all... most of us don´t.

You rather choose then be in a silly looking monstrous office chair and 8 inches from the screen (probably a 26 inch screen) with a caustrophobic table trapping your legs against a wall and hands trapped on a keyboard and mouse making your wrist suffer... with all of that costing above $3k... just to have ultraHD and ultraSettings for graphics.

No thanks, buddy... rather my modest couch-console-tv settings costing bellow $2k with the highest confort for ME... not only pleasing my eyes or my pride as a pc gamer. And I AM also a pc gamer as well.

PS4 is a Beast.
Next-Gen is going to be awesome.
Flames76  +   305d ago
After hearing what the Xbox One had under the hood they had no choice.Still it didnt help the PS4 any by looking at the launch titles.Bad thing is sony has already said the PS4 will lose money for the first couple of years.Then you have the Xbox One which is a beast and will be making profit on day one
