I made those screenshots by downloading the 4K trailers from PlayStation YouTube channel then making PNG screenshots via VLC media player. They are slightly heavy so I'll keep each game inside a spoiler cover:






























































































Due to the post hitting the max 75 images limit, jump to this post:

Wondering if those eyes in FF16 are raytraced. They look stunning in my opinion.
Demon Souls is absolutly beautiful, too :D

Can't way to game on 4K those new consoles and GPUs are going to be a great investment <3

The fidelity, loading, animations and LOD on Demon’s Souls is legitimately the first actual evidence of next gen that we’ve seen. Nothing else has come close.

Anyone downplaying is playing at console wars. I expect to see similar from Series X, but when we look back on this period, it’ll be DeS remake we consider to be where the gen began.

Probably, as they were reflecting the fire.

Demon's Souls looks incredible.
FFXVI looks good, but not much different from what I remember playing FFXV on PC.

Thanks for the screens OP
You're welcome! More screenshots to be added! Keep in touch.

It's a wonderful start indeed! Even first party cross-gen are looking amazing! Next is Spider-man MM screenshots...

Demons souls looks amazing, but I had to watch this gameplay trailer at 4K to really appreciate details on the walls, ground and characters. This game will shine at 4K for sure.
Indeed, mate! And that Avatar, you love photography, right? Join us!


I agree, alhough cool in 1080P when you watch the 4k trailers, you can really appreciate the next gen visuals. Its a great start!
Indeed! I mean watching that event in 1080p makes the look "ok/meh". We should see even better visuals going to the next generation, but this is definitely a good start.

I really struggle to see what makes Demon Souls look that amazing.
Yeah, it's 4k and 60 fps, but besides that, it isnt that impressive. Illumination seems baked like hell and textures doesnt look too high res either...
The textures are pretty high. The lighting isn't that good but it's the theme of this gloomy game, so it's more artistic than realistic. I'm more impressed by Spider-man MM, honestly.

Exactly. The only true nextgen experiences in my eyes are Demons Souls and Ratchet

With all the pretty graphics in Demon's Souls and nonchalant gameplay that they have shown off, it is going to be the ultimate bait game.

A lot of people haven't played a Souls's game nor are they familiar with those games. I fully expect a herd of first time players rushing online to rant and b*tching about the difficulty and getting slapped with "git gud" memes. There is a reason why these games don't have mass appeal, so setting up these poor souls like this is just pure evil. But I will be LMFAO.

But the games do have mass appeal.


Sekiro which is a new IP also sold over 2 million in 10 days and then went on to sell over 5 million.

They said that the first time it released. But with little marketing it birthed game style.

Game will be safe from that.

Sorry, but you’re either blind or too anti Sony to see how good this is. If it were on Series X it would be just as impressive.

Lighting looks so good. Very excited for next gen.

This shot here I’m just like
droooool


That one there is the most important screenshot, it shows RT in practice.:messenger_fire:
FFXVI still looks a little low res and iffy. Is it open world or running at 60fps?
Yup, it looks like a remaster PS5 game, but nice overall. I think it's 30fps, probably with a 60fps mode.

FFXVI’s screens are PC though.
Yes, forgot to add a disclaimer, edited the OP.

Spiderman MM screenshots are still in the oven...

I don't know why people are upset at FFXVI graphics...They look good, we just got spoiled by VIIR, specially the cutscene models.

I agree. I just don't see it.

That tutorial area didn't look significantly better than similar kinds of environments from games like God of War and Uncharted 4.

If it was those graphics at 4k60 then obviously that's a different story, that'd be impressive fidelity for that output. But I don't think it is, is it? It's got a high framerate mode so that suggests it's dropping resolution to achieve that. Unless it's just dropping RT?

But for me Miles Morales looks better, and that's cross gen.
Ratchet looks way better.

And I'm sorry but unheralded stuff like Deathloop and Destruction Allstars look better to me as well.

What I will say is that the reaction to it imo shows just how much easier it is to impress with realistic visuals compared to cartoony, stylised graphics.

Demon's looks so good that even though it's 2 months out I expect a downgrade. My mind can't handle the fact that I'll get a Souls game that looks that good.

I didn't notice until watching the 60fps footage that the eyes of the big gargoyle boss actually have smoke coming out of them. It just billows out while it moves around.
Did you watch Vaati's video? He theorizes that it's mist which helps explain the mist covering Boletaria. As if the demons bring the mist. Kind of cool or lame depending. Hehe

It's not 2009. After all these years Soulsbourne games have become quite popular.

Maybe you should accept that?

Demon's Souls looks amazing. FF16 doesn't look so great to me but I'm assuming it still has plenty of time in development.

I wouldn't use FFXVI screenshots simply because they are not on a PS5, for better or for worse. Just my opinion, though.

It was probably going to PC initially then Sony secured timed exclusivity. So probably they didn't optimize for PS5 just yet to run a demo.
All development starts on PC, they probably weren't working with dev kits for this trailer. Which was also most likely made for the June showcase based on rumours and was dropped because Sony only wanted stuff from PS5 dev kits

There is a disclaimer anyway, so no one gets mislead. And it does look a bit rough, honestly, with some lip sync issues. Overall, it looks clean and nice.

I can understand that and I appreciate Sony being forward with it but I still don't like it.
But it's a massive exclusive, you can't throw money on it then exclude it. So that's the case. Glad they started with it so they take it out of the way as the only game not running on PS5 dev kits.

I guess it was dropped back then as well, but you can't drop it again this late because you need the hype and you've already paid for exclusivity. ;)

Basically the same i can't even tell which is which!




You are missing the point and I admit I should've made it more clear.

What I'm saying is that FFXVI doesn't look like a cutting edge SP Final Fantasy like FFXV, it looks more like a game that has to run on as many systems as possible, which is very typical for MMORPGs, like Final Fantasy XIV hence it reminds me of FFXIV. I wasn't trying to say that it looks like FFXIV, more like it has some really rough edges which are typical for MMORPGs.

The textures of the Chocobo's beak and the sword, the chainmail, the feathers, the dirt(?) and wrinkles on the clothes are all low res textures


The grass and ambient occlusion looks worse than FFXV on PC and especially the ground textures... this screenshot in particular looks really bad for a next gen title.


The Chocobo looks much improved over FFXV... but I'd expect more from a next gen mainline FF.

Compare that to Final Fantasy XV running on a PC and I'd argue that there isn't much of an improvement and it's not like FFXV came out last year.


Now you could argue that a lot can happen until release and I hope it will, but it hasn't exactly blown me away graphically and I seem to not be the only one.

For me the best was demon's souls, that is a good example of a next gen lauch title (e obviously because it is only ps5 and not cross gen) all the rest is between ok and meh. Final Fantasy XVI is honestly terrible, the tech demo of the louminous engine made for ps4 was better than this lol
