The PlayStation 4, the next-generation console from Sony, is quite powerful according to Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios, as the device will out-power most PCs for years to come, according to Chief Technical Officer, Linus Blomberg.

Sony presented the PlayStation 4 last month and impressed millions of fans from around the world not just with the array of games presented for the machine but also through its streaming features and even the technical specs.

According to Avalanche Studios' Chief Technical Officer and co-founder, Linus Blomberg, the PS4 is great from many different perspectives, especially for the developer who requires powerful devices.

"The PS4 will not only be a very powerful gaming machine from a hardware perspective, but it will also be a social tool and integrated marketplace more akin to the successful mobile devices. It’s the best of all worlds in a way; great performance for demanding high-end gaming, good social ecosystem and connectivity, and integrated business marketplace," he told GamingBolt.

"For Avalanche Studios as an open-world games developer this is super exciting and opens up many new opportunities. It’s a perfect fit for the types of games we do, and we are confident that we’ll bring open-world gaming to a whole new level because of it."

What's more, Blomberg also emphasized that the great specs of the device, like the 8GB of RAM, ensures the PlayStation 4 will out-power most PCs for years to come.

"I’m glad Sony decided to go with 8GB RAM because it means that the PS4 will out-power most PC’s for years to come," he said.

Avalanche Studios has already boasted that it's making games only for next-generation consoles and the PC so it's going to be interesting to see what the studio will be able to do with these powerful devices.

It's already teasing a potential reveal for Just Cause 3 which is going to be officially unveiled at E3 2013 this June.
