The only instance I've seen of this so far, but it is interesting. Also nice to see they are using Windows 7.

Wait so a tweet of a pic of a PS4 controller attached to a demo booth of Need for Speed Rivals (which is an EA game) is proof all PS4 demos are running on devkits? They probably are, but this train of thought makes no sense.

Since it's NFS, you were probably just seeing the PC version.

Multiplatform games are often built on PC and downported to both consoles.

Ubisoft has been seen doing the same.

Yes true. I have seen the dev kits. Not a big deal at this point if you quickly throw together a new build.

This is in EA's area right?

If it's not Sony's area it's 100% a devkit or PC, third parties don't bother with running on actual hardware.

That's how it works usually.

I think you mean running on PC.

It would be great, from the point of view of gauging PS4 versions, if they were actually running on PS4 kits.

I don't think ANYONE expects games to be running on regular retail hardware at this point, obviously.

I think this is only in the 3rd party booths. According to two posters in the Gamescom impressions thread AC4 was on a PC in the ubi booth but on a Ps4 in the sony booth. Who knows...won't matter till the consoles release anyway.

It's a third party. It would be more surprising if they used the actual hardware

That's what I heard as well in the Gamescom impressions thread. Ubisoft was using devkits at their booths for Assassin's Creed Black Flag for PS4, but at the Sony booth it was running on PS4s.

And if you can use that touchpad as a mouse on a PC then it would be perfect. Someone make it happen.

Edit: The bigger news.

Only at third party booths. This is the same for both ps4 and xbox one. Only first party have actual hardware at gamescom. This has already been confirmed. Go troll elsewhere op.

Not true.

You can't build a PC like the PS4. It's a completely different memory architecture. It uses x86 yes, and a few years laptops and such will use that architecture but for now, it's not true.

Trade shows always run dev kits or debug kits, how else do you expect unfinished code to run? Its been like that for generations. It would be a bigger issue if the majority, not just a select few, were running Windows or alpha kits

a game currently in development for a yet released console is running on a devkit? i'm absolutely shocked.

also this is in no way confirmation that sony will support proper DS4 use on pc. i really hope they do though, as it was a hassle to use a DS3 on pc this go around for any meaningful game experience.

There's no guarantee of those DS4 drivers being available to regular joes like you and me, though...

I really hope they are, of course, but I'm not holding my breath. It could be like PS3 where there wasn't any good support for a couple of years.

That was MICROSOFT THEMSELVES (first party) running Xbone games on PC.

This is THIRD PARTY running PS4 games on PC, like it's always at events.

I really don't know what the hell is going on and why was this tweeted like something important.
