Avalanche: "PS4 Will Out-Power Most PCs For Years To Come”

Posted on Monday, March 11 @ 10:05:38 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
 


Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios is very impressed with the hardware packed into Sony's upcoming gaming machine, going so far as to say that the console will out-shine PCs for quite some time.

Speaking to GamingBolt, the studio's chief technical officer, Linus Blomberg, said:

The consoles desperately need a boost since having been overtaken in terms of performance by PCs several years ago, and also losing market share to mobile platforms. I’m glad Sony decided to go with 8GB RAM because it means that the PS4 will out-power most PCs for years to come.

The off-the-shelf philosophy behind the architecture makes sense from a pricing and heating point of view, but it also means that Sony more easily can make incremental improvements of their system. If that’s actually their plan I don’t know, but it could help preventing the inevitable loss of market shares that the long console cycles entails.

What do you think? Will next-gen consoles prove to be the de facto place to play all the bleeding-edge games? Provide your two cents in the comments below.
