Thread GTA V is a PS3/360 game and it's probably better than any open-world released in 2020. What do you expect from a GTA VI for the PS5/XSX?
It will be sensational. Will be THE most detailed and believable open world game ever conceived. I am literally expecting the greatest thing since sliced bread. R* NEVER let me down. GTAV next gen I'm also expecting quite a jump on the visual side.

Thread Demon’s Souls developer and head of studio calls their 30fps mode a “slideshow” (when switching from 60fps)
Yeah, 60fps in this AND with MB is just godly. The visual/res difference are just now worth it. Took me ...2 seconds to come to that conclusion. This coming from someone who has played 30fps titles for god knows how long and said they would rather play 30fps titles with more bells and whistles!

Thread Since it looks like the Ps5 & Xbox Series won't be supporting Dolby Vision for UHD playback would it be smart to invest in a 4k blu ray player?

Thread Sony Q2 FY2020 (July-Sept) Results - PS4: 1.5m (LTD: 113.6m) / PS4 is now the most profitable console in video game history / Profits +61.4% YoY
Christ on a bike! And to think it’s reached what it has whilst going nowhere near a $199 price point! Even with the advent of PS5, if Sony could prep a slim model to sell at that $199 price point they would get another 2 years plus, which would steer them to the 130m figure BUT...It’s clear all focus is now on PS5.

Thread Digital Foundry's Best Game Graphics of 2019
From the games i’ve played this year, my personal number one is Death Stranding (currently on chapter 10) after nearly 150 hrs. Its astonishingly good. Size and scale is simply unmatched with the most amazingly realistic rock formations on the ground ever. Its VERY uncanny! Notable mentions are COD. Next gen COD will be staggering! Division 2. Though didn't quite have the same impact the original had. Days Gone. Consistently lovely across the board. F1 2019. I only played the demo so far but I have the full game here still shrinkwrapped. A Plagues Tale. Some terrific work all around. What I didn’t play. Metro. Hated first 2, though latest looked much more interesting but the bugs I’d read about put me off, and still does to this day, though I nearly bought a few months ago when was £15 on PSN. Control. Looks terrific, sounds terrific, just never got around to playing it as was already playing other things. Even now I don’t think I’ll have enough time to play before the big boys hit in 2020.

Day/Night cycle to return etc etc, skidmarks that stay on track, and bigger everything else... People expecting more out of what PD have shown regarding the wet weather is a bit silly IMO, certainly in the visual dept.

Thread PAL Charts - Week 39, 2018
I have to say as well, as someone who ploughed MANY hours into Origins, Odyssey does actually "feel" like a different game...I don't really get any "this is just the same" feelings while playing. I loved Origins but IMO Odyssey tops in a number of areas. Peeps on the fence should absolutely pick it up at some point.

Thread UK: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey physical sales down 26% from Origins
Not convinced wholly by this, i'm sure digital will make a good chunk up and also the other games released at the same time...I think people will eventually pick it up and so they should, as for me it's arguably the best of the series so far.

Sony fanboy alert! Was one of the first in the UK to own a Japanese version (1994). A game dev friend traveled over to Japan, and returned a day later. I was £700 quid lighter. I bought a new 24" Sony Trinitron TV with the then swanky SVHS input for a further £450 . Class.

Playing this a bit different to how i play other open world games. Grabbed all the backpacks (assuming theres 55?) and done all the towers leaving just the core gameplay stuff. I've still only done the prologue mission and the first set of bits at Dr O's lab. 8)

One of the only issues i have with the game is actually the vocal processing...Spiderman not the only game mind but there should be more processing to make the convo's more bedded into the scene. Mixture of the right reverb and eq settings. Just to clean and studiofied...Small nitpick though.

Thread Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age |OT|
As a composer myself the last thing i want to be doing is turning down the music but alas, i went down 3 notches but it needs to come down a bit more. The choice to go down the midi route is a baffling one. It doesn't work for me. There's also to much music, most of the time i really just want to wander, take in the sights, let the FX do their work, but even the FX are a real mixed bag.

Thread The Last of Us Part II's Visuals and Animations Makes the Violence Look Real
As time goes by, new machines land, hardware gets better, this is what we'll see. With every passing year we get closer to reality. Same with film. Technology in all different VFX fields has evolved and continues to do so. For people saying they are no longer going to play this, do you also not watch films/tv with similar amounts of violence? Serious question so don't take it as anything other than curiosity.

Thread Commodore Amiga Appreciation Thread
To clarify, i was told just after i'd finished that release was unlikey to the point i simply forgot about it and have since always assumed it never saw light of day. In addition the music was converted from the arcade version and i could only use 2 of the 4 available channels. I had a cassette sent of the arcade music, same as Mortal Kombat 2. Fifa was a cassette of Jeff Dyke's megadrive music.

Honestly i'm just a humble composer/sound guy that happens to like the tech chat 8). Personally speaking the biggest increase is what the extra cpu grunt will allow given it will be quite an improvement. Do i have insider knowledge? No, fraid not.

Thread AMD's Timothy Lottes - Native 4K at 30 fps with PS4 image quality requires 7.4 teraflops
It's not rocket science. X hits 4k on a number of titles, Pro less so. ANYTHING can be 4k if made that way from the start. Clearly though the VAST majority of titles use all kinds of methods to achieve a higher resolution while retaining high levels of graphical detail and effects. Next gen...with 12tf, a SERIOUS cpu upgrade, increased mem bandwidth, more ram...4k with ALL the bells and whistles will be quite the sight. Exciting times just around the corner.
