    "The DirectX 11 API is very mature while the PS4 tools and APIs are still in their initial stages of development - it's going to take time for devs to fully get to grips with the new hardware. Over and above that, assuming this is the same demo that was shown at the PlayStation 4 reveal, we know for a fact that most studios only received final dev kits in the weeks beforehand, the suggestion being that most of the UE4 work will have been produced on unfinished hardware."

    This is what I had understood from what I had heard. This is based off of an earlier build of the PS4 dev kit. The 8 GB GDDR5 was a late addition to the final build and i'm sure they haven't had the chance to fully optimize the engine for PS4 yet. Early days, even so, good results compared to a very expensive high end PC equivalent.
