The war over video game resolutions and frame rates rages on. We recently had a chance to talk to Ragtag Studio’s co-founder Chris Cobb, who is working on the PS4 version of Ray’s The Dead, an action-stealth-puzzler where you command your own zombie army. Given the number of indie titles hitting 1080p/60 FPS on the PS4, can we expect Ray’s The Dead to adhere to the same?

Cobb responded that, “We’d love for that to happen but can’t commit to anything just yet. Even the bigger studios with teams of 500 people are having a hard time hitting that target, so we’ll have to see where we are at when we get closer to launch.”

We also asked him how they  bought the game over to the PS4 and whether Sony’s open arms approach to indies the only reason behind the decision, to which he replied:

As for how Ray’s The Dead came over to the PlayStation 4 and whether it was only due to Sony’s open arms approach, Cobb stated, “It’s a variety of reasons. Yes, one of them is the very positive relationship we have developed with our Sony representatives, and their from-the-start enthusiasm for independent developers. In addition to that, the timing worked out well for us. We were already targeting a Steam release, but we also wanted to diversify by targeting one of the new consoles. The announcement of the PS4, and the announcement of Unity’s support for PS4 both came at just the right time.”

The release date for Ray’s The Dead is to be announced. Stay tuned for more details.

    Smoke and mirrors, Sony.

      The point of your comment, and the relevance to Rays the Dead, being?

    • Slay

      That the system is smoke and mirrors. Duh!

    • Axe99

      Relative to what though? The games we’ve seen for it so far look pretty solid, particularly technically. I’m unaware of another system for $400 US that could run games at anywhere near its performance. If you’re looking for overpriced systems, Alienware’s probably a better place to go ;).

    • Jason Mounce

      Best not to waste your energy on Slay, he’s autistic and he goes around the internet looking for fights. I think he has masochistic desires to being punished too. He tries really really hard to be perceived as a troll.

    • Axe99

      Thanks for the heads up :).

    • Slay

      I don’t fight with anybody. Everybody just fights with me. It also isn’t trolling when you state facts. I simply state facts. I’ve never been wrong. It’s my motto that I live by, and I haven’t been wrong yet. I know it’s hard for you to accept this. You can’t expect a Canadian to have any sort of intelligence or standards. But I’m here… I’m here to teach you the superior American ways. We didn’t reach the top for nothing. Shaaazingg, hunty!

    • Jason Mounce

      You never state facts. You say the first thing that comes out of your ass, lol.

      Most of the cases, whatever probably is stupid enough to make people wish they could strangle you to death. It’s not a good life you live if annoying people on the internet is your primary hobby.

    • Slay

      The only people that get annoyed are insecure people. People such as yourself.

    • Jason Mounce

      That is the most nonsensical and idiotic thing I’ve seen you say yet.

      Getting EMOTIONALLY upset could be. Getting Rationally, logicaly, mentally annoyed by witnessing retardation to such levels where your faith in humanity gets sliced? That’s not insecurity, it’s called disbelief that someone could be so retarded, has nothing to do with Insecurities as it’s not an internal conflict, it’s a conflict with an external stimuli. Only internal stimuli forms ‘insecurity’ such as your dilemma of likely incessantly wanting to have ‘The last word’ and that you argue with people online to give yourself a sad little ‘Purpose’ in life, I’d analyze and say you do ALL this stupid crap just to get attention, to feel like people acknowledge you by these ‘prank’ like actions.

      So….by that logic and psychology. Who’s the insecure one?…Yourself. I’m quite content and good with my life and my goals and have a stable life, for you to do all this stupid shit, ultimately means you’re Unstable and you’re looking for trouble to appease your wounded ego because you need it stroked by being a typical condescending douche. That is the reality of your life for the most part.

    • Slay

      Oh look, a paragraph of irrelevance.

    • Jason Mounce

      A paragraph of irrelevance – Said the insecure person who wants to avoid being hurt by the truth 😉

      This is where you say ‘Touché’

    • Slay

      no

    • Jason Mounce

      Sorry, but since you can’t make a proper rebuttal to my logical analysis, it’s likely that I hit the mark on the head. 🙂

      Or as a good quote once goes:

      “Ignorance never settles a question.” – Benjamin Disraeli

    • Slay

      “No” settles one just fine. And it made since with your illogical analysis. You threw the dart, but missed the board. 😉

    • Jason Mounce

      I didn’t miss it, I shattered it and went right through.

      And “No” doesn’t settle fine. Just like it doesn’t to a rapist. And you, are the victim. Now stop screaming and moaning and flailing your arms, making yourself look foolish.

    • Slay

      So you think about rape a lot. What a unstable person.

    • Jason Mounce

      So you think about slaying/murdering a lot. What a unstable person.

    • Slay

      Because I’m always slaying bitches like you. Duh!

    • Jason Mounce

      By ‘slaying bitches like you’, are you somehow mistaken and are confused by how often you set yourself up to be slain by those you pointlessly argue with?

      I’d be shocked to even think you know what victory and slaying means. You argue at the levels acceptable by the Special Olympics and consider yourself a winner. But truly, are you a winner? No. No you aren’t.

      If it makes you sleep better at night though? Go ahead :>

    • Slay

      I am the winner. I got the midas touch. Everything I touch turns to gold. I’m like a skyscraper. I’m at the top floor, while you are at the lobby. It’s best you take the elevator up to me because the stairs will just take you forever. 😉 Get on my level, hunty!

    • Jason Mounce

      Oooh, everything you touch turns to gold? No wonder, I swear I saw your boyfriend at the gay pride parade this year. He’s totally your type, you have Great taste.

    • Slay

      You’re the one that picked him out…

    • Jason Mounce

      I picked him out because he was clearly your match. With your love of Gold and how much you love slaying over the hot oven and laying over other men. This one was gold so I knew he had to be your boyfriend.

      Match made in heaven for you.

    • Slay

      You will always be alone. Better stock up on some cats.

    • Jason Mounce

      Insinuating that I’m ever, or feeling alone currently? 😛

      I hate cats and I’m allergic to them. Also, I’m not a female so I’d not be able to become a Crazy-cat-lady.

      No need to be upset and wish such ill-will on someone when I complimented you and your significant-other.

    • Axe99

      You were so, so right, sorry for not following your advice. I thought there might be a chance, given the contradictory logic he’d used, to get through to him, but he’s clearly not interested in learning or teaching, just in fightin’. I deffo won’t feed him a second time ;).

    • Jason Mounce

      Yuh. Wish they’d simply get banned or the like, but Disqus doesn’t handle moderation, and most cases you may email the specified site you’re on and ask for Mod-justice, they Never respond to you.

      Disqus is essentially a free-reign tool for scumbags, losers and troll-wannabes to be deranged cunts as much as they wish with total freedom. Which is why it’s a cesspool.

    • Slay

      My iphone can run all your games. They don’t call the ps4 the indiestation for nothing.

    • Axe99

      Soooo, I’m playing a game of Civilization V right now – your iPhone can run that eh? ;). Given you’ve posted an argumentative (and factually incorrect, not to mention poorly specified) response below a comment suggesting you don’t fight anybody, and that you simply state facts and are never wrong, it’s hardly painting you in a particularly competent light when it comes to commentating on issues to do with gaming.

    • Slay

      I don’t make mistakes. I’m being honest… I’ll be gladly to own up to anything when I am wrong, but I have never been wrong yet.

    • Slay
    • Axe99

      OK, you’ve got me on the name, but the scope and depth of that Civ V is markedly different from the one I’m playing right now (well, in between these posts). Still – your iPhone can’t run Metro 2033, and it can’t run Europa Universalis IV either – both games I own – so you _were_ wrong. Your statement, given no knowledge of my game library, was incredibly presumptuous. So sounds like it’s time for you to own up to being wrong, and that you can’t use that ‘never’ claim any more ;).

    • Slay

      I can do this all day.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhQbMAvrSgo

      Still right, hunty! I’m so good that I even amaze myself.

    • Axe99

      Are you honestly suggesting that turn-based tactics game is the same as 4A’s atmospheric first-person survival title, really? Just because something is called the same thing, doesn’t make it the same game. Anyways, you never gave evidence of EU IV, and while you’re there, how about Hearts of Iron 3 (NOT the collectible card game, but the grand strategy title), Halo 4, The Last of Us and Gears of War 2. Go on, I dares ya :P.

      And if you don’t believe these aren’t my games, you can look ’em up on my Raptr account – Axe99. In other words, you _were_ wrong.

    • Slay

      All of those are mobile. Thanks for playing, but I win again.

    • Slay

      502 games huh… That’s a lot of virgin.

    • Axe99

      Not sure if you found the right profile, but it’s 733 (although I haven’t played all of them – it clocks Steam games regardless of whether you’ve started them or not). However, anyone who thinks gaming and sex life correlate, needs to learn something about having a sex life ;).

    • Slay

      Your hand correlates to your weiner since it’s the only action you get.

    • Axe99

      You’re like still under 15, ain’t ya kid? No-one of sound mind over the age of 18 says shit like that. I highly recommend spending some time outside of your little delusional world, and dismantling some of the emotional barriers you’ve put in place, so you can grow a bit. You never know, you might even learn to enjoy yourself ;).

    • Slay

      I’m 22 actually. Thanks for playing.

    • Axe99

      If that be true, you need help. I’d start by spending less time floating around message boards and more time gaming, but getting outdoors and spending time with people face-to-face is also very important.
