Earlier this week we reported that the lead level designer of Dishonored admired the PS4’s RAM, and now Linus Blomberg, CTO and Co-founder of Avalanche Studios, has joined on the PS4’s bandwagon. He spoke to Gaming Bolt earlier today, and he expressed that a new console cycle was desperately needed, seeing as how PC gaming had greatly surpassed the current generation of consoles. “It’s always very exciting with a new console cycle, for a number of reasons,” he stated. “The consoles desperately need a boost since having been overtaken in terms of performance by PC’s several years ago, and also losing market share to mobile platforms.”
“The PS4 will not only be a very powerful gaming machine from a hardware perspective, but it will also be a social tool and integrated marketplace more akin to the successful mobile devices. It’s the best of all worlds in a way; great performance for demanding high-end gaming, good social ecosystem and connectivity, and integrated business marketplace. For Avalanche Studios as an open-world games developer this is super exciting and opens up many new opportunities.”
“It’s a perfect fit for the types of games we do, and we are confident that we’ll bring open-world gaming to a whole new level because of it. I’m glad Sony decided to go with 8gb RAM because it means that the PS4 will out-power most PC’s for years to come.” He obviously is excited for the new system, and it’ll be interesting to see what the Just Cause creators come up with for the next generation.
