Epic Games vice president, Mark Rein, believes that PlayStation 4 is “the world’s best PC” that surpasses most computers available in market today.
"When you think about Windows, even Windows for most people is tied to about 2GB of addressable memory space," he explained. "This really opens up beyond what most PCs can do, because most PCs are running a 32-bit version of Windows."
"It's like giving you the world's best PC ... The kind of stuff that they announced that they're doing, the level of convenience and things like that... they're making a really perfect gaming PC."
Rein’s words make it hard for us to believe that he is not really that informed about the current mainstream PC technology. For one, 64 bit CPU and operating systems have been available since 2003 when AMD released its first Athlon 64 CPU and Microsoft released the 64 bit version of Windows XP. Over the few years that followed, 64 bit PC became the norm. In fact, almost all Windows 7 and 8 PCs used today are 64 bit and it has been nearly impossible to buy a new 32 bit PC for several years now.
Rein also made an odd assumption that memory size is the most important factor influencing a PC’s performance. We don’t need to remind our hardcore gaming fans that CPU and GPU play much more vital roles in that regard.
