[GZ] Crytek want 8GB of RAM in next-gen consoles

post #1 of 61

Low memory a "crippling factor" for Crysis 2 on consoles, would like to see "a minimum of 8GB" for the next-gen.
Quote:
"My finger-pointing at Microsoft/Sony would really be on the memory side," said Crytek's principal graphics engineer Tiago Sousa while discussing with Eurogamer the problems the team encountered when developing Crysis 2 for console.
Quote:
Current generation consoles, of course, have significantly less.
Xbox 360 only has 512MB of DDR3 RAM, and while PlayStation 3 has the same, only 256MB is allocated towards video memory. The remaining is put towards system resources.

To put that into perspective, the PC version of Crysis 2 requires at least 2GB of RAM, and 3GB if you're running it on Windows Vista.

Yeah I've some hope that in future, MSFT and SONY will response to CRYTEK.

Can someone enlighten me? Why does it also say "and X amount of more memory if you're running Windows Vista"? I've always wondered what's the difference that causes you to need more RAM?
post #6 of 61
Vista wasnt as optimized, ram wise, as the other OS'

Or that's what i believe.

Perhaps 2-4GB; 8GB is ridiculous

The OS doesn't magically disappear from memory when u start a game, the extra ram is what the OS uses.

will that hold tru 5 years from now?? what was enough 5 years ago?

imo this is great the studios are starting to talk a lil about the weakness of consoles its laughable they only used this amount of memory this gen if this would happen pc gaming would get alot less ridiculous ports, they need to admit they failed this gen and bring the next one on with realistic hardware i mean sony bragged so much about the cell processor but to give it 256mb usable mem is just well there isnt a word dumb enough
