Square Enix wants plenty of RAM in next-gen consoles

Square Enix’s Luminous Engine turned a lot of heads but there’s a reason for that. It was running on a GTX 680 with a generous helping of RAM, however, we don’t know the status of next-gen consoles and their specs, except the Wii U.

Creative Director and Senior Manager of Square Enix Takeshi Nozue has mentioned that RAM size has been the biggest challenge for them.

“Memory size is the biggest challenge. The texture quality in the Agni’s Philosophy demo is an enormous drain and it’s clear that the next-generation consoles will have to carry a fat wedge of RAM if they’re to support Square’s tech,” he said.

It remains to be seen how much RAM the PS4 and Xbox 720 will support, but as far as the rumours are concerned we can expect them to be more than 3GB. However, all this is just speculation at this point.

    Honestly it is not outside the realm to see 8gigs or more given the price of ram now a days, it isn’t very expensive. ofc they may have to use DDR2 ram, but the difference between DDR2 8 gigs of ram and DDR3 4 gigs of ram is highly in favor of DDR2 (and roughly the same price).

    Given that Xbox said the next console they put out will be their last and will be full upgrade capable over time, makes me happy.

    I could see the next xbox running 2 gbs of ram as the xbox is not a computer that is running windows in the background with other processes running.
