DualShock 4 is Best Controller Yet says Warframe Dev, praises PS4 Technical Power

Digital Extremes’ Free-to-Play shooter Warframe is coming to PS4 at launch, and in a recent interview to VG247, the developer discussed PS4’s technical power as well as PC like architecture.

WarframeDigital Extremes praised PS4 technical power and also stated that DualShock 4 is the best controller yet.

Warframe Creative Director Steve Sinclair was first asked, whether Digital Extremes approached Sony with a view to bringing Warframe to PS4?. To this Steve Sinclair replied:

“They approached us actually, I guess it’s coming up to about four months ago. We were in our open beta and rocking the Steam charts there, and Sony got in contact with James, who’s the owner of the company and said, ‘Hey what would you think about bringing Warframe over to our next gen console?

“We had, probably, a 30-second conversation about if we should do it, “Sinclair added, and then, “[Sony] squeezed themselves to send us as many dev kits as possible and three months later we were on the [E3] show floor at PlayStation 4 showing Warframe playable.”

Sinclair was further quizzed how closely akin the PS4 architecture is to PC systems?

To this Sinclair said: “Warframe supported 64-bit and DirectX 11 for a long time, and there’s a lot of commonality in that sort of architecture with what they’re doing on PS4. They’ve got a lot of cores on there, so, I was every surprised how fast we got up and running – I think Sony was as well.”

“When we went to [E3] and people said, ‘Holy smokes this is on PlayStation 4, it looks amazing.’ Maybe they were Warframe fans so they were just trying to appease us, but they said it was one of the best-looking games they saw at the show.

“In three months time, that’s a testament to how developer-friendly this version of PlayStation is. It’s absolutely awesome. What surprised me most is how kick-ass the GPU is – the graphics are super, super high-end.

About DualShock 4 Sinclair said: “It has touch screen controls. At E3 we showed little swipe gestures to activate your Warframe abilities that people thought was really cool. There are the ‘social features’ like the share button, all those integrated features where you can say ‘I just did this cool thing in Warframe’ and that pushes out over your network.”
