Not sure it'll ever reach 'banger' status, but looks like a real solid 1st party game with tons of replayability.

The more I see, the more I'm thinking I wanna play it.

Another solid marketing effort by Sony.

Still boring AF in every ways possible. I've looked at the video and it looks like everything I expected, which is yet and yet another backwood biker zombie game. It's completely redundant with...well the hundreds of zombie games released in the past decade, and especially the best of them which is due on the same platform, TLoUII.

There are a number of Backwood Biker zombie games?

this is like the opposite of the downgrades weve all come to know and love. good on sony for allowing them to take the time and fix this game up.

I wonder if they had to outsource some work to get it up to par though. might not bode well for Bend's future.

something tells me this game was due out way earlier and it just wasnt up to snuff with fans/first party exclusive expectations so had to get reworked many times over.

It's looking better. I hope they also worked a bit more on the gameplay.
If they pull it off, this game could be to action survival horror what MGSV is to stealth. That would be impressive on its own right.

60 fps trailer...I always consider console* games to be 30 fps unless stated otherwise.

Now, sony is known to show some trailers running at 60 and then the final game turns 30 fps (uncharted 3)... still, this looks interesenting. Good thing they delayed it, I can see the results.

After the initial Trailer I was really hyped for this game.
After I saw the Game Informer coverage I was like: Mehh.
But the most recent trailers are looking really good again.
A lot of things seem to have improved.
I guess I will buy Days Gone on Day 1.

December 29th 2017 to be exact, thanks to a booboo on Sony's part.

60fps trailers for a game that would probably struggle to hit a consistent 30fps.
I was hoping that there would be a 'performance' mode on the Pro for improved framerate but apparently the only benefit on Pro will be increased resolution.

Game looks awesome either way but I do hope the framerate doesn't dip too severely when these massive hordes attack.

Just going off what I have seen of the game I figured that current-gen CPUs couldn't handle this engine at 60 FPS.

Begs for a next-gen refresh, IMO

Yeah 60 FPS is probably a lot to ask for but do we expect a locked 30 FPS? I'm expecting the game will dip even targeting 30 FPS so it'd be cool if the Pro was able to lock it at 30 FPS and keep the resolution at 1080p in a performance mode (assuming that the framerate will not actually be a solid 30 FPS).

I was always in and imo it always looked good. Alot of ppl were hating just because it was another zombie game (and thts ok if you feel tht way). Shit look good and I'm in day one. Have a feeling the environments are going to be top notch as well as the gunplay.

Performance is still a concern for me, looked really choppy in those PAX videos from a few weeks back.

If that gets ironed out I'll get it on day 2 or 3.
