Reddit verified the posters identify, leading some credibility to the information posted by the tester. He also talked briefly about the upcoming title from Creative Assembly:

“That game looks amazing. Very dark, very slow (in a good way). The textures and lighting look really really good. I’ve seen it running on a PC. The PS4 devkit looks like a computer. It looks as good, if not better, running as any super high end pc. We did not have those controllers, but they look like what was promised.”
Wait, so the PS4 looks even better than PCs?


About f**king time.

They are hiring for a producer for the "AAA" Alien game... I'm really tempted to apply, does anyone work in the industry? I'm a project manager for ERP implementations at the moment for one of the big 4, do I have a chance to get in?
Try it, bro!!! Someone has to, someone has to ensure the quality!!!

Not a chance in hell. I'm sure the PS4 and XBOX 3 will look better than most mid ranged home PC's, but any dedicated rig will kick the living shit out of them. That's not PC master race elitism, it's simple economics. If the consoles really want to be on par with an £700-1000 gaming rig, then they'll be made of the same components and cost £700-£1000, which I very much doubt the console market would support those sort of prices.

Just look at the new GTX Titan, an £800 graphics card designed to work in Cray super computers, consoles simply cannot ever match up to that sort of tech power. Sure, that's an OTT example, but trying to compare consoles and gaming PC's is like comparing apples and oranges, they'll never be the same, let alone consoles being better/more powerful.

Big 4? Whos the fourth?

KPMG, PwC, Deloitte and Ernst and Young are the Big 4 professional service companies (which one is number one depends on which country you live in).

I started looking into the producer role, it sounds like a project management role which is what I do but there is a major problem, salaries in the gaming sector are insanely low! I'm not sure I could (even if I could get the job) take a 50% pay cut to do it and still live in London :-(

First little tidbit of what the game looks like in the lower left. Looks like a patch similar to the Nostromo's.

I feel like that little tidbit legitimizes that this game is coming out.  :)

^Fact. However, I am also not a fanboy for any console or PC. in terms of processing  power etc., it's just not logically possible for the new gaming consoles to be anywhere near as visually powerful as the most dedicated gaming PC.

Yeah! 8)

 But I SWEAR, if I hear anyone from the Dev team say ' I'm a fan of the series. So you can expect it to be GREAT! ' I will ignore any and ALL news until I play it myself. I have heard this sentiment before; from various writers, directors, game makers, producers, etc. that it usually only ever winds up true 0.01% of the time.

I would like to see a game like what all of you listed. But the main thing I would like is that it is based on Ridley Scott's alien cycle where it was just egg to chestburster to cacoon to alien adult.
