Concerning Fact - Sony has yet to show anything running on an actual PS4

Forums - Sony Discussion - Concerning Fact - Sony has yet to show anything running on an actual PS4

I'm confused. Why wouldn't the demos be dev kits? Aren't they normally dev kits? Is it important for them not to be dev kits?

I think this proves, conclusively, that the PS4 will fail.

So the PS4 is a lie?

Yeah for someone who is the tech guy at IGN he seems to know very little about Dev Kits. Especially as the start of his posts was that Sony were not showing them on kit but PC's. If the games are running on a dev kit, technically thats perfectly acceptable.

It's very common to show games off on dev kits even when a console has launched. Mainly because most of the time when showing off games they are dev/release versions and not the actual game master (i.e the games are still in development). You don't normally make a master copy until you are going to submit the game for approval/duplication.

As for the heat issues - that's pure speculation and pointless to bring up especially as its totally normal to have games that are in dev being shown on dev kits..., he kept bringing it up when talking to Cerny.

Yes normally games are running on dev kits.

Apparently, hes concern is that the dev kit is quite a bit bigger than the retail PS4 console, which implies their might be heating issues. Theres a lot of assumptions going on there.

Theres no way in hell Sony made a dev kit that doesnt actually replicate the PS4 system.

In fact i think the guys initial statement was just flat out untrue or he made a mistake...i think hes trying to correct it with hes more recent tweets.

I dont get why people dont just come out and say when they mess up or get it wrong.
