Developers Seems To Love PS4’s 8GB RAM
8GB of RAM is pretty much more enough for doing most things on a PC, stick it into a dedicated gaming console and it’s even better. Sony’s PS4 will have 8GB pretty much for your gaming pleasure and litte else.
Dishonored developer, Arkane Studios has hailed the console and it’s a RAM as a joy.

Speaking with Eurogamer at the BAFTA awards, with lead designer Christophe Carrier said this was “a joy,” to hear, as many times developers have to cut content to meet internal memory requirements.
“We need memory, you know? As a level designer we are struggling against memory every day,” he said. “We cut things, we remove things, we strip things, we split the levels, we remove NPCs from levels because there’s not enough memory.
“So knowing that memory is something that is going to be improved in the next generation of consoles: to us, it’s a joy. It’s something that we were waiting for. We were PC gamers at the beginning.
“We love PC games, and we had to make games on consoles. But the main problem was memory. The processors are good, but the memory, for our games, is the most important. So it’s great.”
Meanwhile, Linus Blomberg from Just cause developer Avalanche had the following to say: “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.”
While I’m quite glad to see that developers are taking kindly to the PS4, which was designed with devs in mind as much as gamers, Blomberg’s claim of PS4 out-powering PC’s is just absurd. I may be a console gamer but such claims are just ridiculous.
