My thoughts: Demon’s Souls is out of this world in comparison to anything I’ve seen yet for next-generation, outside of Ratchet and Clank And it is a launch title. Anyone who is worried about the PS5 not keeping up from a graphics standpoint should stop. Whatever system Sony has to simulate 4K60fps with all graphic options is incredibly solid. There is simply zero chance the video is native 4K, and I look forward to DF’s take. Sony has two incredible showpieces for the system out of the gate. Games will not be an issue for Sony at all, and the machine is going to be impossible to get for months on end - just like the PS4
And the SSD is no joke. Demon’s Souls was loading a new area in less than a second, which some may have missed. Basically instantaneous. Between that and R&C I am a believer in the PS5 SSD
The hardware is just plain ugly, and it’s the largest out there. I have no doubt that it’s going to be quiet at that size, though I am very interested to see some kind of teardown. From an aesthetic standpoint this would have to go in the theater room equipment closet - I dislike it that much. And I’m interested to see if Sony has some kind of RRoD situation to deal with from the launch
Lack of UI is a huge red flag to me
Preorder situation makes me terrified for next Tuesday with MS, and this morning with Nvidia , . With no notice, hungry PS5 gamers crashed Best Buy TWICE last night, and sold out in minutes everywhere. I personally used Wario’s link to reserve the system from Amazon before the official page went up - unsure if I will keep it yet. What is going to happen when the whole world knows when MS will be available at a certain time? At this point I doubt very much I will be able to get a Series X. Hopefully demand is significantly less
And the Nvidia card I wanted? I’ll tell you in a few hours - UPDATE - yeah, right …
Not sure if I’m going to keep the PS5 though - I cannot get over how terrible it looks, and my wife (graphic designer) agrees with me. She thinks I should sell it for a modest profit given the hysteria on eBay. I have a few weeks to think about it.
Anyone seen the Spider-Man remastered footage today?
Heard a bit of fuss about remodelled characters but everyone said it looked amazing…I watched this…ol it’s 60FPS and buttery smooth…but there is a fair few noticeable LODs and pop in and low quality shadow flickering…to me that doesn’t look amazing…am I being harsh? No interest in console war nonsense so why I’m not creating a new thread. I just feel if this was Xbox people would be blowing these issues up on social media…
The Pop In was obvious but oh my 60fps was nice. Tbh though, looks like the PS4 game. I’ll buy it as someone who never had a PS4 but not really looking worth it for those who played the original unless they really wanna play 60fps.
I just saw it and came here to see if it was being discussed actually. It looks super rough imho. It does look like a cleaner, smoother PS4 game and there is a lot of details missing in the PS5 version somehow (traffic is drastically reduced).
GT7 looks almost verbatim identical to GT Sport on PS4 too. If I were playing these games on X1X would I be satisfied with visuals? Definitely. Would I be blown away? Definitely not. I thought Demons Souls looked great wrt art and tech graphics, but also came away from that just feeling really underwhelmed with how not next gen it looked to me. R&C is the most next gen PS5 game I’ve seen and I’m not talking about the rift stuff, I mean the graphics on their own. Looks straight up Pixar quality CG.
