However, according to a PlayStation 4 developer PS4Daily spoke to, they have access to “only” 7 GB of RAM. The remaining 1 GB is reserved for the operating system and background tasks.

That means making as many awesome and powerful tools available to as many developers as possible, regardless of how big or small their company or team.

Unity is elegant, efficient, approachable, extensible, and affordable. Unity makes it easy to iterate and Unity does the heavy lifting when porting games to other platforms.

Code is automatically converted, and just polish and optimization for that specific platform needs to be added. But all the other stuff - the art, the game logic, artificial intelligence, sound - everything else, remains the same.

Plenty of huge publishers like EA, Ubisoft, Kabam, Square Enix, and Nexon are using Unity...
