Can confirm

Pro hooked up to a mid-range 4k/HDR display.

im a graphics snob for the most part, I don’t heap praise lightly. The game is visually stunning. Absolutely gorgeous.

my Pro went jet engine fans at beginning but seem a little quieter now
yep my pro moaned like a cheap hooker during the first half an hour but has been quiet since then.

Game looks beautiful..

I don't care where (just far)
After about the fans seem to be fine, strange. I have the quieter model and everything, they definitely went full blown jet engine for a bit at the beginning

Its amazing but RD2 on X in 4K is a lot more impressive imo, thats not to put DS down though as it's EASILY the best looking PS4 game I've played.
I don’t own an X, so I can’t directly compare, but I going into this directly after playing RDR2 on an average gaming PC.

I dunno if this is the best looking console game I’ve played. God of War really impressed me

Played on Amateur and it is one of the best graphics I played this gem.

It is gorgeous, sharper IQ, great AA.

Got some bad news for your bro. It’s NOT native 4K. Will look blurry as hell on your 4K.

Try sitting as far as away as you can, or wait for PC version.

Even low budget 4K tvs have near perfect upscaling from 1080p.

You seem to have very little first hand use of the technology.

I would agree that RDR2s graphics are more impressive overall but the HDR implementation is truly the best I have ever seen in any game on my TV.
I also love the art style and color pallet which gives it an incredible realistic look.

It looks pretty impressive from what I have seen and is definitley the best looking strand game out there right now
I get that it’s the best looking strand game, I have to give them that. Once you get past the wow, is it the best playing or most fun strand game?

I mean, strand games aren't really about fun. It's like drinking coffee at first it tastes bitter but you learn to appreciate the taste until you can't get enough. Strand games are meant to be boring at times and not fun at others thats part of what makes the whole experience complex and unique.

Haha is this a joke? Not even close of being the best looking game. Did you see RDR2 in NATIVE 4K? Looks so epic on my LG OLED
I don't know about him but i played rdr2 in native 4k. It is the best looking game of all time.

But death strandings environments look better. The mountain rocks especially look stunning. They almost have this photo realistic quality to them. Too early to say if ds will look better overall but its off to a good start.

I play mostly digital games, and my Pro is super quiet, but disc games make my console go nuts.
I think many people confuse the bd drive noise for the fan. The ps4 spins the disc super fast when installing and then when it checks the disc. Then it quiets down.

Only played for a couple of hours, but the game's visual presentation is impressive as hell. I'm playing on a PS4 Pro and a LG 55" B6 (4K HDR) and it's breathtaking at times. I'm also impressed at just how little visual "bugs" there are. No pop-in or weird glitchy shadows or anything of the like make it feel really polished.

Are all of these cutscenes real time, too?

Does it feel like it looks better than Spiderman on the PS4 Pro?

HDR is great.
Don’t have a HDR TV but do have a laptop with a HDR screen and it makes games look great.
Can’t wait to see this game on PC.

yea I've only been impressed with some of the character models. The water physics are terrible. Cutscenes are really nice. but people who are saying this is a graphical masterpiece when RDR2 was released this year? How soon we forget.
