Blueside on why they chose to develop Kingdom Under Fire II on PlayStation 4 and how they're using the DualShock 4 touchpad to get RTS management right. There's still hope for an Xbox One version, though.
Kinda guessed that but thanks for sharing all the same
Blueside, telling it like it is. Props.
I'm glad more and more developers are coming out and speaking their mind and are not trying to deceive the masses by making false statements so as not to upset "a certain console manufacturer". This way people can have all the facts before them and make informed decisions about what console they are gonna buy. If you prefer the xbox exclusives then go for the xbox if you prefer the ps exclusives then go for the ps. If you're srtictly into multiplats then go for the ps4. If you're into tv and kinect then go for the xbox. This gen will be epic for sony. As the ps4 hardware evolves I think we'll be getting titles that will be giving pc a run for it's money.I can't even fathom what first party games are gonna look like. This will be the best gen ever for gaming.
Can't blame devs for telling the truth, it is def the best hardware ever created in a console , no other currently released console compares to it, and that's a good thing because the higher the roof the bigger potential there is for the games to grow into what we want as gamers. @georgenoob in your opinion the xbone games are better , in most ppls opinion ps4 has better games and will continue to have better games as last gen, still completely off topic tho considering this is about hardware and I can bet it hurt just saying "hardware wise maybe" tho it's not "maybe" it's 200% confirmed now that the ps4 has a big gap in power now and will continue to grow. I'm sure xbone games will be fun but none will compare to ps4 this gen exclusives multiplats and even indies will be better on ps4 IMO and most others too, hence the sales gap.
Yeah, of course in the end there will be many fun Xbox One games, but there were for GameCube, N64 and Dreamcast as well... Xbox One will do better than those but certainly not as good as PS4 or even the 360.
lol. No kidding. Although, a small part of me would have guessed Dreamcast. Stating the obvious is the new black.
It's true, PS4 is probably the best console hardware ever conceived.
Not true. Hardware wise, maybe. I don't know about you but I usually like the console with the beset games, And Xbox definitely has the best games IMO. It has the most AAAs by a long shot though and that's a FACT. @Sharky MS basically announced the next Crackdown and Gears of War today, at the most random time ever. You can only imagine what they have in store for this E3 and the next year to come.
Say that in 2 years. Sony's AAA games are coming. I will say right now AAA wise xbox one has a slight edge , but Sony's moment is coming.
Ummmm GOTY!!! The Last of Us. Check it out.
"It's true, PS4 is probably the best console hardware ever conceived." That's what the guy said,try focusing George! Here is a hint for you : "Best Console Hardware". ----- "And Xbox definitely has the best games IMO" Exactly,it's "your opinion",and since you're a Xbox fanboy,your "opinion" isn't relevant tbh.
dude crackdown 2 was trash, why do people keep spouting this nonsense? I literally swore at my friend for convincing me to buy it. Plus the idea isn't even original, you are a cop fighting some criminal orgs, and zombies come out at night. Dynasty warriors rehashed every year is about as interesting, just with melee weapons instead of guns. But as you are a known shill, it should be expected that you would name every single game that MS ever possibly conceived (nevermind if they are out in 2017) and name them as the greatest game ever and upcoming as well.... why didn't you give up after RYSE got its first 6/10
Ps4 has the best meta rated launch games... That pretty much stomps the games argument, plus sony's studios always deliver the goods.
gears is a reason i bought ps4. tired of it. tired of gears, forza, halo.
What next Crackdown? Ruffian Games is doing something else entirely, an indie game with Square Enix... And Gears of War by an entirely new developer isn't exactly a certainty.
Yes George, you definitely have an opinion.
I think I would have to agree.. I've always preferred Xbox only titles. This generation of consoles is going to be fun to watch either way. I'm glad I have both to ride out all the fun :)
" It has the most AAAs by a long shot though and that's a FACT. " That's your problem right there, it's all about quantity with you guys. All you care about is quantity of games. Quality > quanitity. I'll take Infamous SS and Driveclub over a 4 hour linear hack and slash that can't even hold 30fps at 900p and a cancelled 360 generic zombie game that can't even hold 30fps at 720p....are those really the games you are bragging about here? Really? Those games would be unacceptable on the PS4 as exclusive titles. PS exclusives are of a much higher quality than that, any PS gamer will tell you the same. Those 2 games are just multiplat quality that happen to be exclusive to the company that bought them out to buff their launch numbers. Funny how all you guys talk about now is exclusives, exclusives are the only numbers that matter now. Even though multiplats will make up the majority of games this gen, as they do every gen. And if these 2 short months are anything to go by, then im glad PS4 is my main console. The PS4 is the wisest long term investment, just stop living in the here and now for one minute and look at each companies track record for exclusives. PS3 still supported TO THIS DAY with great exclusives, while the 360 is a wasteland. Once Sony's 1st parties start revealing their games it's going to be business as usual, exclusives on tap, add to those... superior versions of pretty much all multplats (apart from ones that aim for parity) and some really great indies and it's as i said, PS4 is the wisest long term investment.
Crackdown and Gears? Oh boy!
So what happened to new IP!,eh?.
We are talking about hardware not game.
But of course!
Well yes, it is the most powerful console ever created, by quite a significant margin. It's an engineering marvel and as far as development goes, offers immediate benefits to those looking to get the most out of the hardware. Pedal to the metal development.
In terms of hardware, it is simply great. Now it's up to the devs to make it shine, they have no excuses like "Cell is too complicated" or anything like that
Man, i can't believe KuF2 i finally getting somewhere. SO EXCITED!!!
You and me both, man. You and me both!
People know the truth
It was tailored to developer's needs. Nothing more needs to be said.
Exactly this. Devs asked for more RAM, and more RAM they got.....quite a lot more!
When they announced 8GB of GDDR5, many jaws fell - including mine.
You can say not only ram was in discussion, i think Mark Cerny said that even the architecture, everything was put on desk, so it is a fact that Ps4 it's a developer's heaven, it was built for them first :)
and the accolades just keep pouring in!
Meaningless if it doesn't have the software to back it up. Original Xbox was also more powerful than the PS2 but the PS2 was the king of its generation.
PS1 was the king of it's generation PS2 was the king of it's generation PS3 came out on top at the end of it's generation So what makes you think that PS4 won't continue the trend? :)
Who said that it wouldn't continue the trend? I just think that gamers are putting too much enphasis on the power of the hardware when what really matters are the games.
@Studio.....you are right about the PS 1and two, but wrong about the PS3. The PS3 did not come out on top and nether did the X360. They where both outsold by the Wii, and it took the PS3 seven years to catch the X360. Still til this very day we still don't know how many PS3's Sony has actually sold since they haven't released any official numbers recently.
@imalwayswrong Without more powerful hardware the devs cant make bigger and better games, put it this way, if you have an artist with 5 colours in his paint box, he can make a few pictures, mix some new colours up and make a few more games but there is only so far you can go with it and so many ideas you can make with those few colours, but if you give that artist 1000 colours then you increase the possibilities, you increase the range and have much more room to invent. I am not saying its the most important thing but without console power we are still playing pong. @marcelliuss1 I think he is comparing like for like consoles, the wii was not even in the same demographic, it may have sold a lot but that didnt impede what so ever on the 360 or ps3, most ppl got a wii and one of the other 2 consoles, and looking by the sales of the wiiu the wii was a short lived fad as in ppl got bored with them pretty fast and either sold them or put them away for a good while.
Well, with the Wii no longer being manufactured, but the PS3 still doing well and likely to continue to do so, it's a safe bet that the PS3 WILL come out on top. In all likelihood, the PS3 will be the first console to be the most powerful and also win its generation. As it stands, the PS4 is currently poised to do the same.
"Without more powerful hardware the devs cant make bigger and better games" I'm sorry but that is straight up bullshit. Ask most FF fans if FF13 is better than FF7 or FF9 or maybe ask RE fans if RE6 is better than RE2 or RE4. Better yet, ask yourself why Killzone SF or Ryse aren't mentioned for the best games of last year when the devs behind those games had the oh so much more powerful next gen systems to apply their 1000 oh so special colors. This talk, or better your talk, about more powerful hardware being able to produce better games is all crapolla because if the devs behind the games aren't passionate or talented enough to produce great games their games will be garbage no matter how many "colors" they have available to work with. Ín other words the power of the hardware is absolutely meaningless if the software doesn't back it up.
This comment is for Inalwaysright FF7 was very advanced for its time. You cannot compare it to ff13, they are in different era of gaming. The hardware is the tool, with better hardware you can give it more possibilities and immersion. It all depends on the artist or team.
So excited to have my launch PS4, the skies are the limit for the Quad! First I heard EQ Next is coming to PS4 along with planetside 2 and now this!
Well, EQNext was kind of a given since Sony Online Entertainment is still a Sony division!
well I wanted a EQ on PS3 and we never got one. SOE has plenty of PC only games and while I do own a PC I am happy about the transition mmos are makng to the consoles.
Still waiting on something real.
False statement. The Sega 32x and Nintendo Virtual Boy were the best consoles in history.
I guess the last line of defense of the Xbox community is ”the games” like if the PS4 will not have their wave of big guns games. When it comes to games, diversity and exclusives Sony has always demonstrated they are number 1, period. Anyone with a PS4 simply ignores that "game" argument because they know the PS4 will have the best library and multiplatform games will look better on it. I recommend looking for another excuse to defend the xbone.
Wait till they get a steam machine then wow, cant wait to play this one of my faves that's for sure hope it has enhanced features for pc.
I don't even think PS4 is that special, 1080P TV's have been standard for a few years now so a console capable of 1080P at a decent frame rate was to be expected... I think what has surprised me the most is just how much of a train wreck Xbone is considering how well Microsoft did with 360. Microsoft can quickly sweep Windows 8 under the carpet but they'll be stuck with Xbone for at least 5 years unless they want to further damage their reputation by killing it off quickly.
