Warframe dev praises the PS4: “powerful console with great connectivity”

Digital Extremes is hard at work developing Warframe for the PS4, and as expected Steve Sinclair, creative director of the game, is full of praises for the next-gen PlayStation hardware.

We know for a fact that it’s a cleverly designed system with very few limitations and even the GDDR5 RAM latency was dismissed by lead architect Mark Cerny. It also contains a dedicated audio processing chip for rich audio.

“PS4 is a powerful console with great connectivity and online features. It lets us bring over our high-end visuals without compromise, with the promise of pushing it even further in the future,” Sinclair told GamingBolt.

“The PS3 was a great machine and the SPUs were insanely fast if you customized your code for them – with the PS4 the power increases yet at the same time being more generalized. We got our Warframe engine up and running in just three months on PS4 – it was such a pleasant experience… with Warframe being a ‘new’ franchise, I guess it just made more sense from an intuitive level to look to future platforms.”

The console will be released later this year for $399 and features tons of launch titles.

Thanks, GamingBolt.
