With God War: Ascension's release this month bringing to an end the brutal action game's run on the PlayStation 3, developer Sony Santa Monica can dare to dream about the next God of War game on the just announced PlayStation 4."We're going to be able to show a lot more, right?" lead game designer Mark Simon told Eurogamer."If you give us enough time and you give us those specs, we will blow you away. Our team's pretty good."Sony shocked many when it announced the PS4 would include a whopping 8GB or RAM. Eurogamer's already spoken to the development community about the PS4's specs, and most are enthusiastic about the extra horsepower.So is Santa Monica Studio, Sony's huge, 150-200 person Los Angeles-based first-party team responsible for the God of War series and the production of other PlayStation-exclusives, including PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, The Unfinished Swan and Journey."Well, the hardware itself has 16 times the memory we had on the previous console," Simon continued. "The hardware takes a lot of the shackles off in terms of visuals."But those anxious to see the next-gen God of War in action shouldn't hold their breath - Simon confirmed the God of War development team's focus is squarely on Ascension, the first title in the series to feature multiplayer."To me [the PS4] is imagination land," he said. "We haven't touched it. We're not even concentrating on it. All we're concentrating on is we know we release in a week. I imagine we're going to be on our forums talking to players about the stuff they're experiencing in multiplayer and trying to address that stuff immediately. We're going to have half of our team ready to go for that stuff.
