Sony PS4 had 4GB memory originally Sony revealed at the Tokyo Game Show that it made a business decision based on feedback to bump the PS4 from its original 4GB, to 8GB GDDR5 memory.
The upcoming PlayStation 4 (PS4) console was to feature 4GB of memory, but Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios, revealed that it had made a decision to bump up the memory following feedback.

"And because we chose expensive memory...we really liked the performance, but it's pricy, right? So going to 8GB was a bit of a business decision," Yoshida told GameSpot.

"But we were able to make that decision because of a lot of the feedback from developers."

Sticking with 4GB would have caused some frowns in the gaming community as memory is vitally important to delivering optimal performance for the longest possible time.
