Sony is "actively push[ing]" for PlayStation 4 developers to deliver games that render at 60FPS/1080p, according to a developer working on the console.

Discussing the differences between PS4 and Xbox One with Eurogamer, Stewart Gilray, who is working on a secret PS4 game at Just Add Water, said:

"We might see slightly smoother framerates on PS4. We're working with Sony right now, and they're trying to actively push 60 frames per second, 1080p.

"You might get situations where the graphics will be a little, but not much, lower quality on the Xbox One," he continued. "Or, you might get some fixed at 30 frames per second situations in 1080p. It depends on the scale of the game.

"If your game is going to push the heck out of the PS4, you might have to do some little tweaks [for the Xbox One version]. But if you design your game to work on Xbox One at 60, it's going to work on PS4 at 60."

The difference in performance will likely come down to the boost offered by PS4's 8GB GDDR5 RAM, which Gilray previously told had been kept secret from third-party developers prior to the console's reveal.

In comparison, Xbox One features 8GB of slower DDR3 memory, of which 3GB are reserved for system resources.

Both consoles are due to launch later this year.

I think you missed the point, the PS4 has faster memory DDR5 vs DDR3. Its the difference between system memory in a PC like 4GB of RAM and the memory found in discrete video cards like a GTX 680.

Even though you're unlikely to ever come back to the site:

The PS4 will use some of the RAM, obviously: I mean, your computer may have 4GB RAM but 1GB, for example, may be needed to run the OS.

Some of the PS4's RAM will be used for system stuff probably, but no one knows how much.

So is it confirmed that all 8GB of ram for the PS4 will be used for gaming. Or will PS4 do the same as Xbox One and use a percentage of the ram for other resources?

I'll predict now that there will be very little in it between the 2 consoles, despite the better specs, the similar setup will mean games will be ported for multi-platform titles.
