Dishonored Developer Says That PlayStation 4 Is a Joy

Posted by Sammy Barker

Delighted with the extra memory

One of the developers behind last year’s surprise hit Dishonored has described Sony’s next generation system as “a joy”. Chatting with directly after last week’s BAFTAs, lead level designer Christopher Carrier revealed that the PlayStation 4’s surprise inclusion of 8GB GDDR5 RAM was particularly pleasing.

“We need memory, you know?” he told the publication. “As a level designer we are struggling against memory every day. We cut things, we remove things, we strip things, we split the levels, [and] we remove NPCs from levels because there’s not enough memory.”

He continued: “Knowing that memory is something that is going to be improved in the next generation of consoles: to us, it’s a joy. It’s something that we were waiting for.”

Dishonored sloped away with the coveted Game of the Year award at last week’s BAFTAs. It also sold extremely well, meaning that a sequel on the PS4 is pretty much guaranteed at this point. Put your paws in the air if you’re excited.

I never got around to buying/playing Dishonored, although I really wanted to. Maybe I should pick it up after I get Tomb Raider.

@ThatOneBlackGuy same here but i have played it on my friends PS3 and i loved it but with so many games i wanted coming out at the same time i just can't afford it at the moment

Me neither... Sad; Bethesda deserves everyone's money if just for fallout 4 and TES6. It's very good to hear that they like it. Maybe PS3 was the fluke and ps4 won't be so glitchy

@Majin-Naruto I still need to pick up Ni no Kuni, DMC and of course Tomb Raider. So, Dishonored is going to have to wait even longer.

Then again, I could just get Dishonored before DMC. I'll make a decision when the time comes.

Yup. So many games left to buy this generation, and so little money! It's dipping into my PS4 savings...
