Avalanche Studios "PlayStation 4 will out-power most PCs for years to come" 1

The co-founder and CTO of Avalanche Studios, Linus Bloomberg  showed his excitement and optimism about Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 4 which was announced during last month in Sony’s NY event. But many would consider his optimism as over-confidence as he said that it will out-power most PCs for years to come.

During an interview which he gave on Game Bolt, he admitted that consoles desperately need a boost as it has been overtaken in terms of PCs performance many years ago and also seem to be loosing its foothold further all thanks to mobile platforms.

He added,“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.”

Many would disagree the comments in regards to memory requirement when it comes to PC gaming (for now). Since Linus made an impression that the amount of memory is important, one can pick up an 8GB kit for a pretty decent price.

As one would expect, many criticized, ridiculed and even questioned Linus’ statement made in the interview and as a result he clarified himself via Twitter, well, sort of.

He said what he was trying to say was “most” PCs, where he doesn’t clearly (and conveniently)  point towards standard non-pc systems which is usually using in office or for generic uses. But he did clarify that wasn’t referring to memory count, but said that he was talking about Sony’s move to use GDDR5 for low latencies.

Of course, to know if PlayStation 4 can seriously benefit from this where one game studios’ co-founder could make such a claim is yet to be seen, irrespective of the fact that many would disagree without much of a thought.
