Ubisoft On PS4: Sony Has Fixed All The Possible Issues

Yeah, developers just seem to adore the PlayStation 4. ...damnit, more rhyming!

In speaking during Sony's most recent Conversations with Creators video, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag associate producer Sylvain Trottier had some high praise for the PS4.

He called it the "perfect jewel" and said that Sony has done their job; now it's up to the developers to take advantage.

Said Trottier:

"The beauty of working with Sony on this console for this generation was the fact that it was built for the game developers. And to be really honest, Sony fixed all the issues that could have been there on the console and right now I think it's up to us; like we have a perfect jewel in our hand. It's up to us to push the bar and make it shine."

The increased power will let Ubisoft "push the bar" from a visual standpoint, and Trottier was also quoted as saying that Sony's new console is "a lot more intuitive." Basically, he says they can now add all the little details they can't currently add, because the current generation of consoles are "running at 100%." All of this sounds very encouraging, so you should probably spring for the PS4 version of Black Flag when it launches later this year. We're not sure if it'll be available on October 29 (the date for the PS3, 360, PC and Wii U versions), but we're hoping.

This is quite refreshing news to hear! I remember hearing the opposite news 6 years ago. It seemed to me that every 3rd party developer had only bad things to say about developing for the PS3. It wasn't until a good 2 or 3 years later that they finally seemed to get the hang of it. Hopefully, this will lead to higher-quality games right off the bat, as the titles we've seen absolutely deserve it!

Because many developers are lazy and hate the challenge of learning something new or having to optimize code.

Ive already decided any game releasing both for the PS3 and PS4, ill be getting on the PS4. Theres no doubt. Because of what most devs are saying its obvious ill be getting the superior version of most games, not that the quality wont be there on the PS3. Obviously the thing is still a beast and I still dont believe any dev has 100% maxed out any game on it. If they had they wouldnt be saying it every time they release another game. Honestly I think ND are the only devs to even come close and Sony Santa Monica is right there with em'.

Anyways a little off topic that last part, but im really excited for the PS4. If developers are this excited I think we all should be and have no reason not to be.

So I don't want to hear any more Sony bashing out of these buggers once things get rolling like last time.

The beauty of Sony getting out ahead of MS is that there won't be anything special to say about the Xbox Infinity when the media ban is lifted. Stole all its thunder.

I'm sure Microsoft has got some goodies ready for the 21st. Xbox Infinity is a pretty cool name.

Say what you may about Microsoft but I love their product names, XBox 360, XBox Infinity, Silverlight, Expression, etc.

Like my dear old grandpappy used to say when he bounced me on his knee when I was a lad in front of that old Colecovision, 'Kid, happy developers make happy gamers.'

LOL! My wee young self always used to say, flipping a pair of pliers in hand, "smart kids are happy kids"... Cause I fixed that broken Colecovision, and the TRS-80 CoCo 3, and the Commodore C64 we got for nothing back in the 80s, and that broken SNES I got for free in the 90s... We never had a shortage of video games.

This has me pretty excited about the PS4 and all the games we have to look foreword to right off the bat. It was tough to get through the first few years of the PS3. I can't wait to see how things turn out for the next gen.

This is another great piece of news.

I am starting to wonder though, all the devs are saying a lot of great things about the PS4, what about the next-box? Seriously, are they all going to come out and say it all over again after the next-box announcement? If they don't then they will all look like they are favouring the PS4, which MS wouldn't take lying down.....

May 21st will be an interesting day. Followed by a few interesting weeks, then an amazing E3!

Well in some of these statements they did refer to next generation console(s) rather than specifically about the PS4.

compare to the older generation leaps, like b/w PS1 and 2, 2 to 3,
this still feels like PS3.5, hope i'll be proven wrong by the end of the year

The first games are never a showcase of the full potential of any platform.

Well actually, nothing wrong with looking at it as PS3.5 if you're just talking about visuals cause we won't be seeing any significant increase in better graphics from now on. It's not like the PS3 was a slacker in graphics either. (ex: My avatar is actually in-game photo mode in GT5)

PS1 to PS2 was a true 3D graphics jump in pixel count. It was such a big jump that PS2 gameplay looked better than PS1 CG scenes. PS2 to PS3 was an increased in pixel jump AND high definition visuals. PS3 to PS4? There's not much else to improve on, is there? Just more polishing and cleaner graphics...

...but let's not forget the other elements of gameplay other than graphics with the help of the massive 8GB GDDRam. That's over 16 times the total the PS3 had so this alone should indicate that the PS4 is worthy enough to be called a PS4 and not P3.5. So I also hope that it is truly next gen worthy.

Although I would argue what Ive seen so far from the PS4 demos is super impressive.

There's still a lot of room left for visuals, polish to be sure but higher resolution, detailed textures, lighting and just more of everything displayed at once. Hopefully we'll be past the point where low level things like grass don't pop/fade up as our characters only when we're close to them.

Besides that there's a ton more room now for better physics, AI, more solid frame rates and so on. The wall will eventually be hit (and likely sooner than it was this generation given the simple architecture) but we're getting closer to the point where the primary thing holding developers back is budget and not the hardware.

so having 8GBs of GDDR5, blazing fast memory, tied to a CPU/GPU APU which is the likes of a 08 combination, is not a "issue"?
so having part, well, unheard of technology, what, or who offers 8GBs of GDDR5 RAM!?
not even the 1400 dollar Nvidia TITAN has that much!
so, having 8GBs of GDDR5 RAM tied to a GPU/CPU APU of 2008 specifications, is the "perfect jewel"?
right.
as the saying goes, ill have what hes smoking!

I think any game that is coming out whether on both PS3 and PS4 or just a PS$ is.... going to be a PS$ purchase for. I am not going to be a first day or month buyer, but it only makes sense to do so. I can wait. The longer I wait the larger the game library for the PS4 becomes.

Again, the devs have to prove what they have been preaching for the last little while. So they had better not disappoint. OH and UBI!! visuals are one thing and not had better not be the sole focus this next gen. Its called a good story and game dynamic, visuals are icing on the cake. So go forth and create. Gamers will be watching and hopefully playing.

Keep Playing!

One thing I don't hear much about is the size of the games/storage medium. I wonder how much bigger game worlds will be, how much better textures and models will be, and if there will be more content (the last one I doubt)

Still Blu-Ray, don't need a new storage medium. Most games this generation were under 8GB. 50GB is still going to be more than enough space.

So much hype regarding the PS4. I hope it won't be too much hype to prevent people from being disappointed.

SURE they (Sony) have.....and with subsequent software updates "new problems" will "come up". PS 3 is living proof of that IF anyone's been paying attention that is.
