PS4 powerful enough to 'blow your pants off,' says Housemarque

The developer behind upcoming PlayStation 4 title RESOGUN has heaped praise on the power of Sony’s next-generation console, saying the system packs enough technical muscle under the hood to ‘blow your pants off.’

Speaking with GamingBolt, Housemarque’s Harry Krueger revealed the studio’s experience in working with both PlayStation 3 and its hotly-anticipated successor.

“We have worked on many platforms in the past. On development side the two are not all that different; only instead of hard-to-program SPUs that require assembly-level programming if you want to extract the full potential, we have compute shaders that are easy to program and most of the cumbersome scaffolding is now in the GPU hardware. One difference is that when things go wrong, PS3 GPU crashes but PS4 GPU hangs [note: you just read some coder humor].

“As for power, anyone can look up the figures on paper. It is powerful enough to blow your pants off.”
