PlayStation 4 Is More Powerful than Average PCs, Has More Features, Dev Says

War Thunder has better graphics and more features on PS4 than on PC

War Thunder developer Gaijin Entertainment believes that the PlayStation 4 is going to be more powerful than most average PCs, at least in the near future.

He also says that the next-gen console's extra features will allow games for it to deliver better experiences.

The PlayStation 4 is set to receive quite a few games, but by far one of the most intriguing experiences is War Thunder, an online and free-to-play combat flight simulator from Gaijin Entertainment.

The studio's President and CEO, Anton Yudintsev, believes the PlayStation 4, with its different features, is a great home for War Thunder besides the PC, on which it's currently in open beta, and mobile devices.

"PS4 is a next-generation platform, and even with our experience in console games development, we have discovered truly amazing features that perfectly fit our War Thunder MMO project, which was originally a PC game and was recently announced as being in development for mobile devices," he told PSLS.

"Because of the PS4′s features, we are going to be able to develop a lot of really cool features that are not currently presented in our PC version which is in open beta. These features will be ready for PS4 players right from the start."

Among the key differentiating factors between the PS4 and other platforms is the increased power, as the console will beat average PCs in terms of visuals for a certain period of time.

"Greater visuals, at least for some time (I don’t think that average PC will be as powerful in the near future). Head tracking, native social features (like streaming) and some other fancy stuff mark the difference between the PS4 and PC versions."

Yudintsev also remarked that for some gamers it's going to be cheaper to get a new console than a new PC.

"I don’t know what will be the price of the new console, but usually it is much cheaper than good gaming PC – and sometimes cheaper than just new PC video card."

War Thunder is expected to appear for the PS4 at the end of the year, alongside the console.
