PS4 is the “the world’s best PC”

Vice President Mark Rein of Unreal Engine creator of Epic Games has honored the PS4 for the “crazy, ridiculous stuff” developers have been doing with it, as if they were “giving you the world’s best PC.”

During an interview with CVG he says, “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 also mentioned, “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,”
