PS4′s 8GB RAM was kept secret from third-party devs
In a report today during an interview with VideoGamer, Water’s CEO Stewart Gilray, the developer of a mystery title for PlayStation 4 informed that the PS4 ram was kept secret from third-party devs. It was more like a surprise for them. Only a few knew the PS4 will feature 8GB Ram. The devs were initially informed that the PS4 Ram’s capabilities would be 4GB. When architect Mark Cerny revealed the PS4 specs on stage 2 months ago during the PS4 unveiled, everyone was left surprised and happy.
“We were told “PS4″ was 4GB originally,” Gilray informed videogamer , “and we first knew it had 8GBs when Mark said at the event’s stage, ‘And it has 8GB of memory.’ We’d had kits at that point for a good while.”
A few were suspected PS4 would feature 8GB ”a couple of really close first-parties” “but I think most third-parties, if not all third-parties were like, ‘Yeah, 4GB, awesome, can’t wait.’
“It’s a fantastic amount of memory,” he continues, “especially DDR5 memory, because it’s so fast you don’t have to have everything there at once. You can swap it in and out instantly, effectively. But when they said 8GB it was like, ‘Ooookay.’”
