Sony Shows that Games Run on Actual PS4 Consoles at Events With Pictures, Debunks Rumor on Using PCs

by on October 27, 2013 10:57 AM 101

Sony Computer Entertainment is showcasing the PS4 in Italy at the Games Week trade show in Milan, and the staff at the booth finally decided to debunk the widespread rumor alleging that games at events and on demo stations are running on PCs and not on actual PS4 hardware (which would make very little sense anyway, considering that we are less than a month from the release of the console, but judging from the comments I read on many articles, some still seem to believe it).

They tweeted on the Italian PlayStation account two pictures, that you can see below. The first showcases the demo area, showing the usual blue cabinets that some still believe nicely filled with powerful gaming PCs. The second reveals the interior of the cabinets, with a PS4 unit running. From the label we can partially see at the top of the picture it’s playing Killzone: Shadow Fall.

The text of the second tweet (translated from Italian) says quite clearly:

To debunk a false myth: Inside the PS4 cabinets there are PS4s, not PCs.

There you have it. Straight from the lion’s mouth: time to find another rumor to spread, because this one’s pretty dead by now. Of course some games were demonstrated on PCs in the past, but at this stage there’s no reason to believe that’s the case anymore.

    a picture says a thousand words. Xbox was displaying BF4 on supercharged PC’s not to long ago.

    • Bankai

      Everything Microsoft displayed at E3 was running on PC, while it was proven by multiple sources that Sony were using dev kits, yet there were still rumors that they were using PC’s because everyone believes what they want to believe.

      • Michael Clanton

        your comparing now to e3? save your dumb fanboy talk.

        • Imperial Captain Zimmerman

          Its ok to be mad. 720p

        • Bankai

          Both pertain to the subject of whether or not games were running on dev kits, so I can compare them, my dear fanboy.

          • Tagarte

            as soon as you call somebody a fanboy you are instantly considered a fanboy of the other like a crook calling someone a criminal…

      • Imperial Captain Zimmerman

        My reply was based after E# I saw some pics somsone posted online not sure PAX or Gamescom which they said BF4 was running on X1 but loading errors came on the screen leading to everyone’s surprise it was a PC running. If I find the link I’ll post it

      • MajorNextGen

        Umm wrong but what you mean is Ps4 has fool please spare me with your Bs

    • Michael Clanton

      your comparing this recent event, to then? thats stupid.
      Xbox has there tour running actual units already. save your fanboy crap…idiot

      • Imperial Captain Zimmerman

        yeah I attended their Live tours. I was not impressed with Ryse tbh….a QTE fest.

        • Terrell D.

          Huh? The Ryse I played today at Area One had no button prompts or QTE’s

        • Maurice Wilburn

          I actually played it too, the only way that game was a QTE fest if you actually chose to use them.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      “not to long ago” is the key word. At recent Area One events BF4 was showcased running very evidently on Xbox One units.

      By now both consoles are demoed on actual hardware.

    • MajorNextGen

      And so has Ps4 for last 7 months and graphics still look like crap what’s your point troll ??

      • Seth H.

        did you not read this article or are you just burying your head in the sand?

      • Imperial Captain Zimmerman

        haha whats my point still in denial at your 720p resolution and god know what else is wrong with the OS?? Do me a favor and message me on the 22nd, if you don’t then I can say you dun goofed with your Xshit

      • Imperial Captain Zimmerman

        shut it 720p

  • Michael Clanton

    This is very close to launch, i would assume anything MS is showing is on actual hardware now to..this is just a natural progression of getting closer to any hardware launch…dumb article.

    • Imperial Captain Zimmerman

      720p

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      Yeah. most Microsoft’s demo stations have no room for anything (they’re literally a skeleton), so there can’t be a PC in them.

    • bestscreenname

      save your dumb fanboy crap

    • ex-XBOXer to PSer

      don’t be such a hypocrite .. if this article is about games running on actual xbox one .. you will say something else ..

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/xSubZero SubZero

    I bet those games weren’t running at……720p haha

    • Nick TwinkleToes Setzer

      Out of curiosity, when that rumor gets shot down, what will you fanboys blab on about then? Cod looks average at best no way it cant run 1080 60fps on either console easily. Just remember there have been countless “rumors” about xb1 and almost none of them have been true … especiaply from the sources this stems from … CBOAT and famous mortimer are notorious for being sony fanboys who make up rumors. (That end up to be false)

      • Davuskus

        COD: Ghosts is confirmed to play at 1080p and 60 fps on the PS4.

      • Garrison Shields

        I have yet to see an XBone rumor get shot down. Even back when the original specs were leaked, you XBox fangirls were screaming to the moon that everything was rumors. When will you ever learn? Jump Out.

        • Nick TwinkleToes Setzer

          Then you must be looking with your eyes wide shut…

      • TI_21

        Keep on denying the truthfacts. It’s not our money you’ll waste. ;)

        • willhe

          neoFag?

      • Ω GUNTZ
      • Seth H.

        IDK about these 720p rumors, but everything else CBOAT has laid out has been 100% accurate. That’s why people are taking him seriously ’cause he predicted everything that MS tried to do at E3. Say what you want, but he as credibility at the moment

      • Seth H.
        • Nick TwinkleToes Setzer

          The guys with no source … yea must be true ….

          • Seth H.

            LOL, you clearly don’t know what that site is, do you? Only the most valued investor resource on the internet, but I’m sure you know more than they do

  • raiden

    so whats up with the 720p micro fans?are you take back your pre-order or wait until dear and beloved microsoft announce something?lol

  • Shizuku Huang

    I just saw the screen with KNACK again, and we already saw KNACK running on an actual PS4 before…
    There’s a video shows a PS4 overheated and crashed while KNACK was running on live stream at Gamekyo 2013.

    There should be something more than KNACK,
    just like BF4 or what……

    • amplif1er

      Yes and the PS4 was in an enclosed not ventilated plastic box, you do that to a laptop or PC or anything else that generates heat it will eventually over heat stop trying to find any reason to bash.

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      may want to actually read the article, as it’d point you to the fact that the label at the top of the second picture indicates that the console is running Killzone Shadow Fall.

    • Guest

      The same would happen to the X1 or any other device if it’s in an enclosed space with no ventilation. That’s just common sense. Keep the device in an open, well ventilated area and overheating won’t be a problem.

      • Seth H.

        but of course you get downvoted for that bit of common sense…:p

  • Greg Hartley

    Oh come on.. Lets stop with all this Fanboy talk and unite against PC gamers.

    • Seth H.

      Don’t pick a fight that you can’t win

      • Greg Hartley

        Oh shoot. At least i tried :). To be honest mate. I would love a high end PC but just can’t afford one right now

        • Seth H.

          lol, yeah. build you own, better and less expensive…but still not cheap

  • Unemployment Master

    I don’t know why all you people keep bashing the Xbone.
    My four years old PC can’t do 1080p either but gets to 900p60fps just fine.

    • Seth H.

      that’s the thing though, you’re trying to compare a next gen console to your 4 year old PC. PC gaming has moved on since your system was built. My PC runs everything at 1080p & max settings without hiccup.

      • Unemployment Master

        It was supposed to be a poke at how my four years old PC can do something the Xbone can not.
        Which is running BF4 900p60fps@High.

        • Seth H.

          I think I see it but you were kind of vague. anyway, sorry if I killed your joke :p

  • Krakn3dfx

    This is good news, now I know the PS4 I get on 11/15 won’t just be an empty shell that requires me to sit it in a plastic box while a PC in a hidden area below does all the work.

    Whew.

    • Guest

      Oh you’re going to feel like an empty shell alright. That’s what $0N¥’s overhype does to a pauper.

  • VW

    I personally don’t reall care much about what the PS4 or even X1 is running on, was running on. End the end the games will be running on those systems anyway, & as long as titles don’t pull an Aliens: Colonial Marines then i’m happy.

  • PrinceHeir

    so it’s almost here eh? :D

  • Guest

    Too bad for $0N¥ PauperStation Foul, MS was doing this before $0N¥ Ph0n3yz ever did. Gamescom had tons of games playable on the Xbox One and ZERO on the PoS4. GFY $0N¥!

    • DelphisFinn

      I can’t tell if you are being delightfully trollish, or if you are actually being sincere. If it’s the former, kudos to you for being hilarious. If it’s the latter, how did you even learn to use a keyboard?

      • Seth H.

        I especially love how his post is in no way relevant to the one he is replying to.

        • DelphisFinn

          That almost makes it better, right?

          • Seth H.

            sort of like a random, drive by trolling…only he misses

          • DelphisFinn

            And he’s on a tricycle.

          • Seth H.

            one of those little one that all the clowns ride

          • DelphisFinn

            But not the “good” clowns with the professional makeup and such. More like the pathetic clowns who are just chumps dressed like hobos with oversized novelty shoes.

  • DelphisFinn

    Any “gamer” who actively hopes for any gaming platform to fail isn’t worthy of the title.

    • Axe99

      Well said :)

  • neomahi-217

    Its a conspiracy!!!! They just show a PS4 in the cabinet but there’s still a PC! Its all smoke and mirrors! … What do you think they do with all the used PS4 consoles?

  • RealityCheck2013

    & the POOR Xbox lovers seem to think Titanfall they saw months ago was running on a Xbox ONE LoL:D Hmm, saying that it will probably come out on the PS4 in lovely 1080p soon :P

    • Guest

      You’re still an idiot

      • Seth H.

        and you can’t dispute what he is saying, can you?

        • Maurice Wilburn

          There’s nothing to dispute.

          • Seth H.

            Sure there is, all that great game footage was made back before the XB1 was ready for prime time, but now that it is…we’ve seen nothing. Aren’t you curious to see how it runs on the console that you have put so much of your faith in?

          • Maurice Wilburn

            Played just about all the games myself recently and they looked great, but you can tell me how much they suck if you want?.

          • Seth H.

            I’m not saying anything one way or the other. I think that you are lying though, you have not played Titanfall, which was the game we were discussing

          • Maurice Wilburn

            I haven’t played Titanfall, but seeing as all the other games looked great I see no reason not to expect the same from Titanfall especially being it has had more time to be worked on.

          • Seth H.

            Amen, Brother. Just gotta have faith, right?

          • Maurice Wilburn

            None needed

          • Seth H.

            Really, you aren’t worried that Titanfall will look awesome on the PC but will be pared down to work on the XB1′s specs? Sounds an awful lot like faith to me…

          • Maurice Wilburn

            Games will always look better on PC bro, nothing I’ve seen suggest the game won’t look any good on the Xbox One, but on the topic of faith how you feeling about that PS4 launch line up?

          • Seth H.

            Pretty good since none of our games are being released on a superior platform. But we weren’t talking about the launch lineup, (since your’s is kind of ‘meh’ too) we were talking about the only game in the XB1 library that is worth talking about. Not a launch title either, btw

          • Maurice Wilburn

            I thought we were talking about faith? I mean deciding to purchase a console with only 5 exclusives announced between now and next year does take faith right? There is more to talk about in the XB1 library I assure you.

          • Seth H.

            Not that I can see. Besides, exclusives are only a small piece of the pie, I’ll be getting most of the same games that you are, plus the exclusives, plus a buttload of indies that have all abandoned MS.
            Despite their too-little-too-late policy changes.

          • Maurice Wilburn

            That’s great. I’m sure the indies will be on the Xbox One afterall they want to be on as many platforms as possible.

          • Seth H.

            But if you must bring up the launch titles, there is nothing being released at launch on any console that compares to Killzone: Shadow Fall

        • Guest

          So full of horseshit like yourself

          • Seth H.

            you don’t know anything about me, b1tch

          • Guest

            jerkoff

          • Seth H.

            That will do

    • Maurice Wilburn

      I know it wasn’t running on PS4 :D

      • Seth H.

        True, it was running on a PC, where it belongs

  • islan

    Hmmm … What’s that in the box under the PS4? Hmm? What? What is it?

    I’m just asking questions.

    • VW

      The white thingy the PS4 is sitting on, Don’t know but i don’t see any wires connected to it either.
      I do see wires connected to the PS4 though.

      • islan

        But you can’t see what’s between the PS4 and the box, can you, hmmm? Can’t see how the wires are then rerouted into the box, can you?
        But can’t CAN’T see it, either. I’m just asking questions here!

        • Stuff

          There’s a Spybox inside, taking in gamers details and heart rate. The most violent ones are NSA targets for potential terrorists.

          No wait, it’s a blast processing unit to super enhance the 1080p, that would have added $200 extra to PS4 if Sony included it.

          But it could be a box of ice-cream, you know, to cool down the console’s RLOD since it’s all enclosed under the demo tables and would probably be very hot.

          What I refuse to accept is that it’s a discreet brown cardboard box, full of Styrofoam and soft plastic, for the staff to wrap the console up nicely after the demo event.

          I’m just answering all sorts of stuff here!

          • islan

            Oh. My. A-gaw.

            Ice cream be spyin’ on us, yo!

      • Seth H.

        …….

  • jujubee88

    PS4 all like:

    “Oh Hai! ^-^ ”

    behind the cabinet.

  • You are flat out wrong

    “Bu bu but only PS4 can run Knack and they explode when they do :’(“

  • Zaren

    Why do they feel the need to hide the console under the cabinet? What purpose does it serve other than to arouse suspicions about whether it is actually a PS4 inside that box or something more powerful. Also, why is Sony so reluctant to give the console to tech reviewers? And why do ALL reviews have to be approved by Sony before they can be published? Seems like something is up to me, next month will be interesting to say the least.

    • Seth H.

      they control information tightly, they always have. It’s not a new thing for Sony. Microsoft can be pretty secretive too…when they aren’t in damage control mode
