Uncharted developer takes possession of 120 PS4 dev kits

Monday, 16th September 2013 23:55 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Uncharted and The Last of Us developer Naughty Dog recently received 120 PlayStation 4 development kits. An image of the delivery was tweeted by studio co-president Christophe Balestra, whose comment suggested that Naughty Dog already had some dev kits on hand. The developer had not been confirmed to be working on a PS4 game, but as one of Sony’s premiere PS3 teams it’s – you know – pretty damn likely.

Thanks, AllGamesBeta.

    Well I guess that answers my question of how many dev kits a developer needs to make a AAA game.

    For 1 dev kit you must pay $2500 right? Sony make.believe so no developer must paying for kits. Sony is loaning them out for free for a period of one year…

    120×2500= $300 000

    Not bad that’s cheap i think…

    @5 It also may help them that they are owned by Sony Worldwide Studios.

    he says 120 “more” :) meaning they already had some of these laying around.. also it “MIGHT” mean that they are gearing up production, and actually making stuff rather than designing and prototyping. who knows!

    They hook devkits up together to serve as render farms for their cutscenes, lightmaps, etc as well.

    @9 Kz4 looks like the next in the Killzone franchise…wooo.

    Is this really news? Sony developer gets PS4 devkits – I don’t see why that’s worth reporting on xD It’d be like putting up an article reporting on how Turn 10 had Xbox One dev kits…though I don’t know if Naughty Dog is subsidized as part of Sony or not.

    With that said I would love them forever if they made another proper Jack and Daxter game xD but I don’t see that happening. Maybe for the best, the rose-tinted glasses are not always the best haha.

    Still, they’ve put out a lot of good games for the PS series in the past – I look forward to reading about their next game :)
