    Warframe Dev: PS4′s GDDR5 RAM Opens Up Possibilities for Extra Detail,....

    "Creative director Steve Sinclair also talks about Titanfall and how it measures up.

    31st, Jul. 2013 | Posted in News | by Ravi Sinha

    We recently had a chance to speak to Digital Extremes creative director Steve Sinclair, currently working on Warframe for the PlayStation 4, about how the developer was using the extra GDDR5 RAM of the console, along with benefits derived from the unified architecture.

    Sinclair replied that, We are using a lot of the memory, but because of texture streaming, we have plenty to spare! Thats a good thing, it gives us options that we never thought wed have before, and it opens up possibilities for extra detail and video streaming. The unified memory is part of what makes the console so great to develop on. You can use threads to generate textures and graphics assets.

    You can use the GPU to process physics and effects data. Its key in shipping a console that is great early in the cycle while leaving the ceiling quite high for hybrid computing techniques in the future.

    We also asked a bit about Titanfall since, well, its another mech game with soldiers that wall-run and perform parkour. Especially since that game will be exclusive to Microsofts Xbox One and Xbox 360 (along with PC) while Warframe will be PlayStation 4-exclusive. He replied, Huh? Whats TitanFall? Kidding. Saw TitanFall at E3 and it looks amazing and we saw a lot of the parkour stuff we have for our Space Ninjas in there

    I expect TitanFall to just raise the competitive bar and push us further to keep our fans engaged. That said, without knowing a lot of about the game, Warframe is focused on PvE and Coop. Its a shooter/MMO blend with crafting and dojo building. We update our game at a staggering pace, which combined with our procedural level generations, keeps the game fresh on a weekly basis. I dont think it hurts that were free either.

    Warframes release date for PlayStation 4 is currently to be announced." ~ Source

    I'll admit when I first saw it I wasn't that interested, which sucked to admit since I've loved almost everything DE has worked on, but the more I learn the more I warm up to it. Now that I know its f2p I will definitely try it out!

    PS4 Launch Edition
    PS3 60GB (Upgraded to 500GB)
    Phenom II X4 955, HD 7770 1GB, 6GB RAM

    If you add my PSN say you're from PSU or I might delete it!
