The PS4 was named as the top console amongst developers in the newly published Develop 100 Tech List.
Of course it did, the PS4 wins every head to head battle. Hardware sales, software sales, average game rating, media interest, specs, games being developed, controller design, etc. I love it. http://i.imgur.com/amn36.gi...
Thats great and all but I think its more appropriate to congratulate the team that engineered it. Who knew that a console created by a life long developer would be... well, loved by developers? :)
Average game rating and games being developed are VERY debatable. Everything else, yes.
Thing is, this was based on developer perception of PS4 versus other consoles as oppose to the quality of the games. But I agree that the actual library of any console, not just PS4 is debatable when comparing it to others.
Ya know at this point, that is the opinion I trust the most (besides my own of course) The devs. They make the games right? If not Sony, then in devs I trust. I wonder how the mindless trolls will get around that one.
Comprehensively beaten by the Rasberry Pi though.
@ next level: You love it?....lets see... Raspberry PI on 1. PS 4 on 5. Xbox One on 7. Wow. Impressive. Would you have posted it when Xbox was on 5? I doubt it....
Although You sound like a fanboy, You actually state the truth, so I dont get why the disagrees.
Average game rating? Number 1 game on ps4 on metacritic is flower? Well enjoy playing your stupid indies then. We will enjoy the best exclusives at holiday 2014 and the year 2015 :)
The poor fool knows not of which he speaks. LOL...best exclusives...LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!
Let's go down the list of Xbox One "exclusives" with their average ratings from metacritic included. Titanfall - 86 Forza 5 - 80 kinect sports rivals - 61 (Lame) Dead Rising 3 - 78 Ryse - 60 (Lame) Zumba Fitness World Party - 73 Fighter Within - 23 (Utterly worthless) Out of seven games only 2 can be labeled very good, 2 others can be labeled decent and the other 3 are definitely ready for Xbox Live Gold free games, because they SUCK!!!!
Wouldnt expect anything less, sony really did put a lot of effort into making the ps4 robust and dev friendly.
Frickin GameMaker has a plug-in for the PS4. GAMEMAKER! Cerny making the PS4 so easy to code for is genius.
I will be honest, I didnt know what game maker was untill now, seems very handy for non coders. Sony really are on the ball this gen.
I Used game maker before one month to create a game for my project in College ! thank you sony, I created Flappy Bird Clone xD it is very easy to learn ! congrats to sony for the honor of wining this
It was developed by a developer for developers, so hardly surprising
Well it does make sense since it is a more advanced piece of hardware
With it's ease of development, I'm not too surprised.
certain fans be like http://cdn.memegenerator.ne...
Gaming media be like: psshh what do devs know?
Cerny did a brilliant job with the hardware. I'm not surprised at all that developers love the console.
And yet most of their games gets delayed. And i don't believe the "we can add much more to the game, that's why we delayed it!" BS
You definitely know more than all these devs. /s
Never claimed i did. Well i sure as hell don't envy em'. Can't be easy to keep talking about your product, lull their fans and having nothing to show.
Well its a good thing they still have more games than the competition then.
So you're basically confirmed to everyone here you'd rather play a broken game than a finished polished one. Do delays suck? Of course, but clearly they're for good reason.
that's not what he's saying at all and you know it.
So Ice what was he saying? looks like that to me as well....or is he saying the ps4 is difficult to develop for and Devs are lying?
Ice, enlighten me then.
Since when is "2" games Most of their games? Only games that have been delayed that Sony have any control over is DC and Order:1886.
Exactly, MS also had Halo 5 and Quantum Break delayed too. Delays happen a lot in the gaming industry.
They get delayed and they STILL come out buggy messes. Look at watch dogs with the 90% load error just as an example. I wouldn't mind the delays as much if they came out and required NO patches (like the old PS2 days).
Normal. PS4 was built mainly for gaming. The Xbox One was built like a media center that could run games and where Kinect 2.0 is the cutting edge tech.
Not surprising. I'd be shocked if it wasn't named the best.
Well, it is.
greatness awaits http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It sounded like Sony spent a lot of time talking to devs to find out what they wanted in a console. It's what led to their GDDR5 decision, for instance. So now that's paying off
playstation is the best!
I gotta say as a ps4 owner im really proud of sony coming from their ps3 launch they did a freaking great job. Deserve all the praise lets hope they keep it up guys
I would say PS4 wins every category except the ones that are of people's own opinion. Those would really be excluisves, and controller design. Ps4 still has more exclusive franchises and really a more innovative controller though, but still, people have opinions.
And we know this,MAAAAAAAAAN!!
Not surprised at all we all know the truth
Neither console is better. They both have no games and are damn near the same spec wise. Sony is just looked as the better company because they don't try to pull the same bull on gamers like Microsoft does, which is the reason people suck Sony's d!ck all the time
Hmmmm that username says it all in conjunction with your asinine comment bro, your not fooling anyone you hater, love the goku profile pic though dbz is my fave, lol.
Rotfl! Eight moths on the market and not even one decent game. You guys bought it for indies right?:D Sony needs to go back in time to ps1 and ps2 era or die.
Congrats to Sony. Keep the momentum going.
As a owner of both every time I play my X1 and then use my PS4 I realized how PS4 is overall the better console. (Just my opinion) Everything about it is just simple and sleek from the Dualshock 4, to the tiny design of the console, to the simple interface. I love that console and if Sony brings the top critically acclaimed exclusives like they did since PS1 then this my go down as my favor it console ever. I love my Xbox One it's a beast also , they both are but the PS4 just does everything better for me. And for you it may be the other way around, you might think the X1 is a better console and that's ok it's your opinion. Congrats to Sony all I have to say is just keep up the exclusives like you always did in pass generations.
Lol duhhh. Hopefully this is sony returning to their glory days. Ie ps1/ps2. I really wanna fast forward like 2 or 3 years to see what old franchises they bring from the ashes.
Sony set up their current success after learning some painful lessons last generation. Last gen, with the PS3, they had incredible hardware...that was incredibly difficult to develop for. This gen, before even writing the specifications, they TALKED to the developers and LISTENED to what they wanted. This resulted in a console with a more powerful GPU, and 8GB of GDDR5 memory. They made their development tools easier and more intuitive to use. They also ACTIVELY reached out to "indie" developers, and put in place policies that made it FAR easier for small studios to publish their games than on the competition's console. The end result is the most powerful console on the market, with the most games. Those two lead into them having the highest sales...since Sony focused on making the best GAME CONSOLE they could at the $399 price point rather than trying to take over your entire living room and loading the console up with expensive gimmicks. Anyone surprised by Sony's success this generation (or the competition's abject failure) really just hasn't been paying attention. I could have told you that this would happen when both consoles first launched. It was pretty obvious Sony would have the advantage once both consoles were unveiled.
under the hood? perhaps but it isnt pleasant to look at. Neither are the xb1 or wiiu
PS4 eased development environment compared to the difficult architecture of the PS3 shows a complete reversal, and a company that has both it's eyes and ears open. Well Done Sony!
theres hardly anything good to play on it, not to mention that even the best selling games on ps4 dont even reach half of the userbase, what did we buy this ps4 for again?
Devs are just butt-hurt fanboys who don't realize the power of the cloud!!!
That's great! Now hurry up and make some great games for it!
100 indie developers count in saying that the ps4 is the best console???? really??? lol in the highest :D
