Jonathon Blow: PS4 Games Were Running on Dev Kits, Not High-End PCs

#1
Multiple developers and first hand evidence have confirmed this to be the case. Interesting given the recent info on Xbox One games running on Power PCs and all the rumors about their dev cycle being behind:


Jon Blow, The Witness Developer:

Infamous Second Son Developer:

Knack Crashed to Playstation's OS desktop during one Gaffer's Play at E3:

The error screen had a lot going on, including an information box that revealed the current HDD space usage. If you look carefully the dev unit was using 385gb out of 423gb. When you factor in how manufacturers rate the drives you get actual usable space of 465gb. Now subtract that from what we saw on the crash screen and we get roughly 42gb of reserved system data that is not user accessible. That number could decrease or increase on actual retail systems.

Tiny Brains (not at Sony's booth, but at the show) was using a PC build with Dual Shock 4s.

A inFamous Second Son producer confirmed they were running on ps4 dev kit at the show.

lol Key word there is " as many other devs did"

Of course it you can get your game to look good on the ps4 if you are just showing off an indie game that is not graphically impressive.

I bet most of the games that were actually graphically impressive were shown on pcs at this years e3.

You clearly haven't seen The Witness, and Infamous: Second Son was also confirmed..

Wrong post is wrong.

Why does this ultimately matter? Is it some indication that MS is going to have to delay past November? Because if it isn't then what is the point of making a case about it?

Why wouldn't it be? If he was lying plenty of other people could discredit him, you think he would risk that?
Well I'm not doubting his game is running on a dev kit, others may be too. But with posts like this, I'm not sure how it can be confirmed.

I played 1 PS4 game on a PC. It wasn't at Sony's booth though and we were told it was the PC version running with PS4 controllers.

If Sony games were running on the same silicone that we'll get, and the Microsoft games were running as has been discussed at length on much higher specced GPUs, then what people saw form Microsoft is not representative on what we'll get.
