As developers have grown to use current generation consoles, this being the Xbox 360 and PS3, many have noted the limitations that these systems behold due to the amount of RAM that Microsoft and Sony has chosen to supply with these systems. Developers have stated that this limitation in RAM has created a barrier for a higher level of content being delivered through the systems.
With the future release of the Xbox 720 and PS4, many developers are pushing Microsoft and Sony to supply a large amount of RAM with the systems. Speaking with Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli, through an interview with CVG, Crytek believes that the amount of memory that is provided with next generation consoles is the most important part of these systems. Yerli insists that the Xbox 360 and PS3 have been absolutely crippled due to the limited amount of RAM involved with these systems.
If they find ways to cheapen the cost to a degree they could triple or quadruple their memory. Just say, ‘Hey we’re going to have 32 gigs of memory’. That would be quite amazing because memory can do so many more techniques and tricks.
Crytek wants to see a minimum of 8 GB of RAM in the Xbox 720 and PS4. With this being said, Sony and Microsoft should to listen to the needs of developers such as this, as providing features that complement developers will greatly improve the content delivered through these next generation titles.
