In a recent interview, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli seems to have confirmed the rumor that the next-gen consoles will feature 8GB of RAM, because he states that he wants to see 32GB of memory.
Of course, it seems developers are never satisfied with memory, and Yerli stated, "you can never have enough memory."
He went on to complain about the limitations of consoles.
"Memory is the single most important thing that is always going to be underbalanced - I've never seen a console where the memory was the right balance," Yerli said, "Xbox 360, underbalanced. PlayStation 3, underbalanced. Simply because memory is the most expensive part, hence I wish there would be cheaper ways of doing memory so that memory doesn't become an issue anymore."
He went on to note, "If they find ways to cheapen the cost to a degree they could triple or quadruple their memory. Just say, 'Hey we're going to have 32 gigs of memory'. That would be quite amazing because memory can do so many more techniques and tricks."
Both the Xbox 720 (or Infinity) and the PlayStation 4 are expected to have a Holiday 2013 launch.
