Exploit PS4 for cutting edge Soft Body Physics? Ooo Freaky at 1080p 60fps.

He wants better looking titties

Eonjay1687d ago

Welcome to next generation.

first1NFANTRY1687d ago

All of a sudden the future looks brighter lol

Alexious1687d ago

Who doesn't? Honestly. As long as it doesn't get ridiculous

bakasora1687d ago

Yes please.
Imma forever alone guy.

Sarcasm1687d ago

"Next gen isn't needed."

"We're going to have advanced soft body physics."

"Take my money now!"

Titties, clothes, hair, water, sweat, hopefully even muscle flexion. 60fps faster paced DoA and necessarily replays, now THAT would be something.

I don't get why every dev have to say ps4 is cutting edge when it's gpu is 2 year old mid range gpu and the cpu is a beefed up laptop cpu.

Alexious1687d ago

He didn't say "PS4" is cutting edge, just that he wants to reach cutting edge physics with its hardware.

And you're clearly trying to diminish PS4 here. You can't think 1:1 in PC terms when it comes to consoles, for a number of reasons. And for a $/€ 399 console, PS4 is really powerful.

MethCupcakes1687d ago

I've seen what you did there. I'm only going to warn you once.. Watch what you say or you will only have 1 by tomorrow.

zebramocha1687d ago

@king the ps4 gpu is based on a 2 year design but it's more in line tech wise with what AMD is offering.

Developers don't make games for high end PCs. Not all PC gamers have a high end PC plus to make a game that detailed it takes more time and an upgraded engine. So while development costs rise the number of people that can actually play it goes down. That is why gamea have a high frame rate if you have a high end PC. The more power it takes to run the game the lower the frame rate will be.

Then since each console has the exact same specs so devs can tailer the game specifically for each console where as on PC since there is so many different configurations they have to make sure it works over a variety of different parts. If there was a PC with the exact same specs as the PS4 the PS4 would outperform the PC because of the optomization and stripped down operating system.

As for the CPU being weak it may be if developers engines aren't good at multithreading. But if a devs engine is great at multithreading they can spread the workload out. Plus they can offload from the CPU to the GPU.

I don't get why you have to come in every console related article talking about some unrelated PC BS.

Furthermore, I don't get how its not considered trolling.

Cryptcuzz1687d ago

Why do you even care for what "every Dev" thinks of the PS4? Don't look at each component in a system and judge it purely on that. Look at the whole and of all the components and understand that it is not simply what you can buy at the store.

Tell me when you have bought yourself an electronics device with 8 GB of GDDR5 memory. So your comment of cutting edge is null and void.

Look. Just chill and the enjoy what you like and how you game. But don't be so anal about what is technically right or politically correct all the time and you might see yourself enjoying what's around you more. Just my friendly suggestions. Cheers.

"We will divide boob physics by zero!

Isn't that going a bit in the opposite direction there, Herbert?"


"Ve shall break ze Quantum Vall of ze Boobz Mechanicz, Mien Fuhrer!"


"Egor, did you grab 'Abby's boobs' or the 'Abnormal boobs'? Again?

Sorry master...

...Damn it Egor..."

pyramidshead1687d ago (Edited 1687d ago )

I wonder what next gen boobs will be like lol. I played Metro: Last Light from PS+ the other day and that point where you get a topless lap dance was cringe worthy haha.

GarrusVakarian1687d ago

Yeah, those were some concrete hexagon boobs. Nasty.

nope1111687d ago

I thought they were nicely detailed, it was her ass that was weird looking.

kingPoS1687d ago

Here's what I predict: Small time Nippon devs will make Indie games. Left unmentioned are the 3D model projects those dev units will sometimes be undoubtedly be processing.
The eroge market lives on! (in Japan)

Feel free. You should ring Ready @ Dawn.

CharlesSwann1687d ago

The second he gets new tech he thinks about making bouncy boobies.

KonsoruMasuta1687d ago (Edited 1687d ago )

What's wrong with that? This man knows what's important.

boshi1687d ago

at least he's got his priority's right.

Festano1687d ago

I want to see a new Ninja Gaiden exploiting the ps4.
