My friiend the PS3 dev says they really haven't maxed out the capabilities of the PS3 yet. It's not quite completely optimized.
Think of the difference in graphics between FFX and FFXII. We thought that FFX and MGS2 were the extent of what the PS2 was capable of. We were wrong.
I need to ask him what his opinion is of the PS4 - beyond the inevitable "@#%^!"
That doesn't surprise me really.. but the thing about FF12, if you recall, was you'd get a loading screen every seventeen feet. So yeah, the game looked better, but it came limited by system memory. I'd settle for slightly worse graphics if it meant better gameplay flow.
A port of FFXIV to the PS4 is going to depend largely on whether or not doing so would produce any kind of substantial improvement to the game. I wouldn't think they'd use development time on such a port if it wouldn't. That being said, how long before "PS3 limitations" becomes a thing?
now this poster for example is simply spouting misinformation, surely I'll be sub-defaulted for telling him that he's incorrect.
Admittedly my source there was a wiki page on fps and broadcast standards, so it COULD be factually incorrect just because wiki. But if you'd care to point out something I'm specifically wrong about, I always like to learn things. Since the very next sentence is you saying that what I'd just said was correct, I'm slightly confused why you said I delivered misinformation.
Once the game is actually launched and there isn't an NDA forbidding discussion, I will probably be more strict as far as derailing goes.
You have no idea how much that made me want to talk about waffles
