It depends on the games ultimately.

No Real Benefit in Buying PS4 Over Gaming PC – Nordic Games BM

The business development manager at Nordic Games, Reinhard Pollice, had some interesting things to tell us about the PS4 and also about their recently released game Painkiller Hell and Damnation, in a yet to be published interview.

We asked him what he thought about the next generation and about Sony’s recently revealed console, the PlayStation 4.

“I like a few functions that were announced but so far I personally cannot see a real benefit from buying that instead of a gaming PC,” Pollice told us.

“We will monitor further development closely and are also in a stage, where we evaluate certain game concepts for this hardware. Even a great platform sometimes isn’t able to convince a critical mass. A lot of factors are important here. Plus we are not in the position to be under the obligatory first-movers in that sense, so we will be careful for the time being.”

He also told us why they decided to do a modern remake of Painkiller and Painkiller: Battle Out Of Hell instead of doing a true sequel.

“We brainstormed a lot here and had ideas looking into a lot of different directions about a new Painkiller game,” he revealed.

“We ended up concluding that the market is lacking a key element of the original Painkiller, that “old school” element. So we decided that our game should be in the spirit of old school shooter games. We also noticed especially that console gamers never really had a chance to get into Painkiller, which is why we decided to take that route.”

People who are too invested in the PC platform may not find the PS4 that interesting considering what Nvidia had to say about its specs, but ultimately it all depends on games. More details on the PS4 will be revealed at E3.

Stay tuned for our full interview soon.
