Pawel Sasko, from CD Projekt Red recently spoke about whether he thinks the PS4 is comparable to a high-end PC in an interview with Gaming Bolt. He had some interesting stuff to say that is sure to cause a bit of backlash from the PC gaming community.
“After the announcement of the PS4 many graphics programmers commented that Sony’s upcoming console is a high-end PC and I agree with them. The change of architecture made a lot of developers happy, including us. From a technical standpoint, the biggest disadvantage of PCs is customizable hardware in almost infinite number of ways. That’s why working on PS4 gives us comfort that every gamer is going to have a quality time with The Witcher 3.”
Whether the PS4 is truly comparable to a high-end PC is debatable. All I know is I can’t wait to see what teams like Projekt Red can do with that hardware.
