HOLY CRAP, this picture looks amazing!!!!!!
I thought it was common knowledge that the engine they used is a bitch to work with which is why it doesn't look as good as it should.So now we can see the same game, on better Playstation hardware, with much better filtering than the original one.
Can this put to rest the "it's not a hardware issue at all, devs are just lazy" argument once and for all? If they didn't care, it would be bad in Pro mode too. Not as bad, because downsampling also improves that, but not as good as it is here either.
It's not that it looks bad(it seems to be one of the better looking open world games), I just thought that SE was one of the top dogs when it came to graphics and I expected its general graphical fidelity to be similar to something like Horizon Zero Dawn.That same engine has produced these results on OG PS4.
It's done well, and it's an ambitious game to boot.
It is? Gonna have do some research.That's a myth created by gaf. The engine was just still in development.
I see. Thanks for the explanation.from what I can gather, thats what we all assumed, but then siggraph 2016 and a bunch of tech lectures + looks at the engine later and it actually looks like a pretty decent engine.
Its mostly that they were building it along with the game, so it was just a mess of intertwining developments
Shit man, here I was thinking I wouldn't have new shit to play around with on Pro tonight since none of my currently owned games have Pro support.
Then Square goes and drops a new XV demo with Pro options. This company, man :lol
The review thread is going to be a bloodbath regardless of how the game turns out in the end
This is so incredibly surreal. I'm literally in tears.
If you guys haven't already (and I've read through the thread) you ABSOLUTELY need to hear the Ch0 music through till it repeats, and walking around on the world in the morning. (A Wild Wild West-ish theme with flute, guitars, piano plays)
Yes, this is my explicit confirmation. I worked on the music of FFXV.
Does... do like 2 more pop out in its place or something, because..
Actually don't say what happens, I wanna do it myself
Please do tell.
