Epic Games’ Mark Rein Considers PS4 Really Perfect Gaming PC

If you’ve been paying any attention to PS4 news as of late, you’ll notice that a lot of developers are incredibly excited about the PS4. The latest developer to chime in on the PS4 is Epic Games Vice President Mark Rein. In an interview with CVG, he said:

“It’s like giving you the world’s best PC. ‘We’re going to make it super convenient, we’re going to make it easy for you to get games on there, we’re going to start the games running while you’re downloading them and we’re going to perform your updates in the background.’ You’re not going to turn this thing off… you’re just going to sleep it and it’s going to come back on.”

He then went on to say:

“The kind of stuff that they announced that they’re doing, the level of convenience and things like that… they’re making a really perfect gaming PC.”

While it’s understandable that developers are elated to be a part of the design process of the PlayStation 4, I think, perhaps, Mark Rein has gotten a bit too carried away. The specs Sony has publicly displayed for the PS4 have been confirmed to be already old (by industry standards), so by the time it comes out, I highly doubt that the PS4 will be the equivalent of the “perfect gaming PC.”
