Mark Rein, vice president of Unreal Engine creator Epic Games, has hailed the PlayStation 4 for the crazy, ridiculous stuff” developers can do with it, even going so far as to say that it was like giving you the world’s best PC.”
I think it’s a very smart move on Sony’s behalf to build this sort of enhanced PC architecture and then put so much in it. Let’s not forget it has 16 times the memory we had in PlayStation 3 – that’s not insignificant. Knowing that every machine has that, we can do crazy, ridiculous stuff with that,” he said in an interview withCVG.
Even Windows for most people is tied to about 2 GB of addressable memory space. This really opens up beyond what most PCs can do, because most PCs are running a 32-bit version of Windows. It’s like giving you the world’s best PC,” Rein added.
