Awesome to see all these different developers praising the PS4. Makes me even more satisfied with my pre-order than i already was seeing it getting praise from professionals who work with it everyday.

I love indie developers and their games. They honestly make some of the best games because its dedication that fuel them! Not saying big budget games aren't great but indies have a lot more freedom to express themselves! Lone survivor. Velocity ultra. Super stardust. Mutant blob. Hotline. Resogun. Flow. Flower. Journey. Limbo. Machinarium. I could honestly go on and on.

I have no doubt it's a faster, more powerfull machine and that's one of the main reasons why I'll be choosing PS4 over its competitors (along with great exclusives), but I have to be honest here- "lightyears ahead" sounds like an overstatement to me as I fail to see some visual difference of a "lightyear" between next-gen and old-gen games. Sure they look great, but not that great.

It's a good thing devs are praising the hardware, though.

Not sure how an indie developer would convince me that it's light years ahead of it's time.

It was the case for the PS2 that was much faster than PCs at the time.

But again, not many PC GPU has 8Gb of GDDR5 built to increase graphics, not for software TV shit like Xbox One.

For Games: PS4 >> Xbox One.
For kinect motion shit and TV: Toilet > Xbox One.

I couldn't agree more!

No indie developer with limited access to perhaps one console, let alone the ability, technical skills or even resources there to exploit the full power of a console.

At best of what I have seen, indie games are Wii graphics quality and complexity games.

It might be the most powerful to you, since you have seen anything else.

Warthunder I'm sure the ps4 is a great console but you and anybody who believes that just because a dev is called a indie they are "Not influenced or controlled by others" is foolish, check this right after the headline it says:

"Grip Games,who have worked with PS3 and Vita and who is currently working on a PS4 game"

Yep thats influence right there because its in their best interest to praise sony since they have a game coming to the platform. Also I keep hearing "all the devs" praise ps4 yet all I've seen are a few sites referencing "annoymous sources", or john blow who hates micro, or rumors or devs praising both. Any links to a indie dev or any dev working on both who has said one is much better than the other? Links and qoutes please.

Indie Developers don't work exclusively to sony

since the offical specs are out
show how much more powerful ps4 is in both GPU and RAM
no rumors ...no any thing
it's a simple FACT that ps4 hardware more powerful console and the best part about it is how how easy to develop on it
and not one single developer saying otherwise about PS4 since that what developers asked for
so, Let me ask you this
can you tell me what disadvantages ps4 have or why should developers say otherwise than what was said?!

because no one can find any thing but hardware advantages in ps4 favor

PS4 will be getting AAA titles as well. It's not as if Sony has reduced the number of AAA titles it will release on the platform. Instead, it has forged strong relationships with small-team, independent devs to ensure a constant flow of new content.

Having a strong stable of indie games isn't a negative for PS4. It's a positive.

And kzsf is gorgeous and plz stop saying forza the game does nothing next gen.

Only thing I can agree with is the lightyear thing until proven.
Pintheshadows  +   427d ago
Ryse and Forza are shamed equally by KZSF, Second Son, and The Order.

Just go and watch the trailers and gameplay and make a comment from an informed standpoint.

This isn't something where you can argue an opinion. Those three games are head and shoulders above what Ryse is doing for example in terms of effects, textures, lighting, animation. The misconstrued fact that the character models in Ryse are the most detailed ever. No, one of them is. The one whose back you will be staring at as you play. Honestly, Ryse is nothing special from a visual standpoint, it just looks like a good PC game. The lighting in Ryse doesn't look as good as in Crysis 3 on PC when you crank it).

Unless your eyes are broken all three of those games are far superior to everything on the Xbox One from a visual standpoint.

It's awesome to see "indie devs" praise ps4. Has nobody notice that 99.9% of devs that talk highly of the ps4 are Indies . Seems kind of fishy. Indie games of the ps4 don't even come close to the best games of last generation. "fact" so with that in mind indie dev's credibility of acknowledging strengths of a system is quite irrelevant if you ask me.... "Ask me."

These comments just fall into the bag of "overblown". Implying that nothing can touch it voids any creditably they had, even though people will jump on it as true if it falls in line with what they believe. They developed for the PS3, and from what I checked they have always been on the Sony train, so of course they are going to want to stay on the good graces of the company they depend on and have a relationship with.

They are also looking to get publicity from this, and it looks like its working
DigitalRaptor  +   427d ago
Make a list of all of those indie devs, investigate all of their previous ties to Sony, and if you come back with a list where the majority of those indie devs have worked with Sony on several projects before, you would actually have a point.

However, I could also probably name you about 10 developers off the bat that have never worked with Sony before and are praising both the hardware and the simple, no-barriers process that it takes to submit your game to a Sony platform for release.

"They are also looking to get publicity from this"

Get out of here. This is what all gamers believe - that because someone is talking about their games, it means they went out there and was looking for publicity. It's definitely not curious journalists going out there and contacting developers making games for a system that their site is covering. Definitely not. /s

@meaty. I bough a wiiu a couple months ago. Its a great system. Not tons of games but they are coming. The tablet controller is so awesome as is being able to play off screen. Its the perfect 2nd console. I will be getting the ps4 day one and it will reside under my 55" LED Samsung in the living room. After an all day session of hardcore gaming I can now retire to my bedroom and unwind playing Mario kart 8 on my 44" plasma. If the hawks are playing no problem. Just play off screen laying in bed on the gamepad. With the game on TV. This...is awesome. All day gaming on ps4...relax in bedroom with wiiu while watching football and a plate of nachos resting on my stomach.

Due to the PS4 and its policies, X1 may also turn out to be an incredible console, thanks to forced policy changes, and, more importantly, open to indies too. Bottom line is, to real gamers anyway, is that we are entering a great time in console gaming, and should be a win win for all.... for those who persist in petty fanboyism, enjoy what you did get, but leave out the stupid remarks, comments.

UMM it's an evolution of the console, but I would not say it is light years ahead.

Till the day we actually go "backwards" where we see freely open uploaded community mods and this crap business models for charging DLC, then I can say we are moving forward.

I still remember when Q3 Team arena was released, there was an uproar from the community that this extra ADDON was not worth the 40 bucks. It was a test in the PC market and to this day DLC is not as welcome in the PC market vs Consoles.

Like there is any reason to doubt that Sony will deliver on games? They got the most extensive in house production of AAA games in the whole industry. I'd be more worried about the Xbox One which ships with 1 first party title.
vallencer  +   427d ago
It's shipping with 4 first party titles versus ps4s two first party title. Drive club got pushed back so as far as games that aren't of the indie persuasion Sony has less then Microsoft.

Ryse
Dead rising 3
Forza
Killer instinct.

Ps4
Kill zone
Knack.
nypifisel  +   427d ago
How about you read up on the meaning of first party title. They're exclusive but they're not first party. Ryse is made by CryTec, Dead Rising is made by Capcom and Killer Instict is made by Double Helix. MS own none of these studios. However yes you are correct, Driveclub did unfortunately get pushed, had that not been the case Sony would've delivered three first party games to MSs one. MS can't afford to pay for exclusives for any prolonged period of time!
vallencer  +   427d ago
I edited cause I did some research and can't find anything credible other than Wikipedia and yeah I won't post that haha. That's fair however Microsoft does OWN killer instinct so that counts. It's a rare owned property and Microsoft owns rare and yes I know double helix is making it but I'm sure it's because rare is busy with kinect crap. My point is basically that Microsoft has more exclusives then Sony. For the time being anyway and we will see how things play out. Regardless of how it all plays out I'm getting a ps4 when infamous comes out. So sometime next year. I can't being myself to miss out on exclusive games.

DigitalRaptor  +   427d ago
@ Vallencer

What is important to notice and accept, is that Killer Instinct may be first-party launch, but it's not a full-game. Not even close.

Look into fighters across the industry. KI has 6 characters. That is about 1/3 of a full fighting game. No wonder Microsoft/Double Helix has that ready for launch.

And we already know for sure that Dead Rising 3 and Ryse, were originally scheduled as 360 games, so compare that to all the games Sony is still pumping out for PS3 (The Last of Us, Puppeteer, GT6, Beyond, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, God of War: Ascension) and you can see the reason for any disparity in first-party exclusives at launch.

Could you imagine if Sony had held up the middle finger to their current install base, and brought the majority of these games to PS4? Wouldn't happen. So the way I see it, Xbox fanboys can gloat about having about 2 more exclusives at launch. I still have more great games to play, on a console I still care about.

The games are there, you're just more impressed with Ryse's screen tearing or Forza's magical cloud power promises.

Games will come rowdy, if you are an adult or grown up you realise that titles take time on any platform.

You would rather have great games then half finished just to satisfy launch title numbers?? Or just rather complain about poor titles??

Every console launch since gaming began is like this until production is running fully and more and more companies get onboard, i have alot of faith Sony will deliver over the life of this gen, we have 2 pre orders and very excited see what they come up with :)
rowdyBOY  +   428d ago
all sony ever speaks about is the console and indies -

WTF ?????

getting to the point where i might cancel my pre order.

xbone games = 9\10

ps4 games = 1\10

no games dudes and dudettes
awesomeperson  +   428d ago
Go ahead, cancel your preorder.

I'm sure you'ld make someone's Christmas out there if you did. I have quite a few friends who missed out on the launch deadline and would love a console before Christmas.

Anyone with an ounce of common sense would know that launch titles are in no way indicative of what is to come in a generation.

(And on that point, this is one of the best launches for either console ever. I personally don't see any real reason why the Xbox One launch lineup is better, but that all depends on what games you want to play.)

I doubt he ever had a PS4 pre-ordered, to be honest.

@ DayZ: Agreed. But then, let history repeat itself. Watching someone stumble once is funny enough. Think of how much funnier it is to watch them get up 2, 3, 4 times and stumble and/or fall flat on their face. :)

vallencer  +   427d ago
Don't act all high and mighty. The ps3 didn't have the amount of games it had now for like 4-6 years of it's life cycle. Half way through Microsoft and Sony switched places last gen. And for the launch of this gen they have switched places again. And no I'm not counting indie games. I love indie games but for me a console is defined by it's core games and not something I can pick up for 10 bucks.

I will be getting a ps4 next year because I refuse to miss out on any exclusive a system has. I want to play infamous ss and the order because they look good but those aren't launch games so I'm getting the xbone first. And for ME it's because kill zone and knack just don't cut it.

Didn't have games for 4-6 years of it's life? it's been out 7 years.It's been non-stop games since 2008.

"Xbox gamers talking about Playstation having no games?"

They want it to be true so badly, but they ignore history. Things can always change, and at the beginning of the PS5 generation it may make sense to say Sony doesn't bring the games like MS does, but as of now it's just a silly fanboy hope based on nothing.

Well yeah please cancel your PS4 pre-order, because:

1. So that PS4(that was suppose to be yours) goes to someone more worthy to have PS4 than you.

2. I don't want to see you PS4 online(PSN) at all.

Just because PS4 better than wiiu and x1 spec-wise doesnt mean its great. Its because wiiu and x1 sucks spec-wise. Now let the spec alone and lets the games talk I want PS4 to be as good as ps2 orelse I will just stick to my PS3 and play all the ps2 HDs.

I love how the xbox fanboys are trying to downplay an indie developer's statement because they're indie. Last I checked Microsoft had indies too, they just think the PS4 is better plain and simple.

Not only that Journey was rated higher than most 360 exclusives and even won a Grammy. Care to name a 360 exclusive that's done that? Until then you have no room to talk about how indies' statements don't matter.

it is pretty funny, the attempts at spinning everything PS positive is astounding, yet if we wanted to be like them, we wouldnt even have to try with the xbone

And the Indie game in development is light years behind today's standards for an Indie game.

OH NO!
DigitalRaptor  +   427d ago
You mean graphical advancement? Sure.

It still stands that most indie games out there are more unique, original and creatively innovative compared to most AAA retail games. The kind of ideas that indie devs can come up with are going to be (more often than not) better, since they have no constraints from a publisher, who wants to influence, censor or compromise their vision and pressure them into a deadline.

Console gamers complain about stale gameplay, lack of innovation and publishers milking series, and the indie community of devs and consumers pushes completely against all of these design traits of bloated AAA development.

The insider said Microsoft has a lot off work load gfx caculations done off the GPU and CPU. He said some of the off work load include voxel ray tracing! He said lighting and shadowing takes big performance hits from GPU and CPU!So Microsoft took the workload of GPU to special processors,and caculations on CPU. He said the special processors take the place of GFX Cores. Microsoft couldn't use multiple GPUs because of bandwidth restrictions. So the special processors work as GPU cores without being one.
So I ask I that the DDR3 and ESRAM made the bandwidth equal or higher then PS4! HE responded yes,but Microsoft has a bigger vision. He said Microsoft wants prt and mega texture caches. That will use harddrive and ram so it lowers the bandwidth,but when it's all put together a native 900p game upscaled will look better then a native 1080p game. He said that is an example.He would go more in detail with me at a later time. So this brings me to the rumore VI tech in Xbox One!Volcanic Island tech is not in Xbox One,but it kinda of is.....
