‘PS4 will out-power most PCs for years to come’ – Avalanche Studios CTO

Forums - Sony Discussion - ‘PS4 will out-power most PCs for years to come’ – Avalanche Studios CTO

Not in terms of raw processing power, but in terms of what developers can achieve on it, I completely agree.



Around the Network

To everyone talking about PC gaming and how powerful our rigs are, that is not the point. Developers are making games to the lowest common denominator. Right now the games on the market are built first for the PS3/360, and laptops that are similarly powered. They are not even scratching the surface of what the weakest GTX 600 or AMD 7000 series card is capable.

With PS4, and I assume the XB3, these consoles are set well above the $500 laptops on the market that most people buy. He believes it will take years for these devices to match these devices in power with the new trend towards tablet like mobile laptops.

This all means that for the next 5+ years games will be made and optimized around the PS4/XB3 hardware. So just like now, no matter how powerful a PC we have, it is still only going to be a PS4/XB3 game at heart. Additionally, he believes the move to industry standard tech will allow much easier transitions to future consoles.

It is going to be so nice to see this gen unfold. Many people are going to be shocked at the advancements in games. PS3/360 have been holding games back for the last 3 years. In the next 3 years, AAA games are going to be unlike anything we could imagine right now. Just be patient, it will show soon enough.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Imagine what the PS3 would be capable of if it had 2GB RAM. It's a FACT not many PC games look as good (or better) as God of War III/Ascension. Just imagine what Gow on PS3 would look like with 2GB RAM right now. Imagine that game with way better alias at 1080p res and even more high-res textures. How many PC games would be able to rival it? and that's a PS3 game.



In your dream Sony fan boys lets c if its gonna out power next Xbox than say something or post something like that haha

Most PCs: Yes
Most gaming PCs for years to come: No
Most gaming PCs this year and next year: Yes



Most of the PC gamers I know have significantly better PC specs than the PS4 can offer. Hell my laptop outclasses it in most respects. Consumer PCs for the office and netbooks, those it will outclass. The PCs made to the steambox specs, hell no. There is a lot of developer hyperbole, and people take it at face value which they shouldn't, it is usually motivated by business interests, either slagging the opposition or up-playing a platform you have an interest in. The nice thing about the PC realm is actual benchmarks rather than hearsay.

I think it's better to note the quality of the games that will come from the PS4, despite rigs that are 5-10x more powerful than it.

Taking just Killzone: ShadowFall, it looks better than 90% of my PC library. This is a launch title, at that. Imagine 2015, 2016, 2017 games.

God of War and Uncharted.

Thinking of what ND or SSM can do with next gen makes me drool considering the eye candy they still wow me with on PS3.  I hope one of them makes another unique world (Jak, GoW, Crash) rather than go realistic with their next games.  I also hope KZ gets up to 60fps before they launch since the Feb. 20th demo was at 30.  With more RAM and over 6 months to smooth it out I think it could happen.
