According to this, it's not:

I think they're just playing their cards close to their chests.

Whether it's through a separate release or enhanced BC, I expect it to make its way to next-gen consoles quite quickly.

I suspect it'll be relatively easy to scale up to the next gen consoles and would imo, be a no-brainer.

Man walks into a dimly lit room, light bleeds across the room from a shoulder mounted communication device. It is the most light in the scene. There is a light mist and sparks spew from a torn electrical wire tossing light and particles around as the man cautiously makes his way across the room. His boots leave prints as he walks across the polished floors the dim light showing his reflection in the floor. The wire behind him cracks and slows as it comes to a stop along with all of the other lights in the room shutting off at the same time. The man covers the device on his shoulder but the light bleeds through his hand. The man pulls a firearm and continues making his way through this large sterile room. A noise behind him and he turns around removing his hand from the device at his shoulder and revealing himself to everyone. The light illuminates the room and a table he had walked past has been knocked over. The table cloth is still slowly settling on the floor along with all of the other things from the table that have been strewn about. Off in the distance a pair of yellow eyes open and fix on the man. (You will know who he is but I cannot say) he raises his fire arm and fires off several shots. The flash from the gun illuminating the darkness as the creature reels then attacks. Another set of eyes opens as it runs across the room at him. You can see the impact of the weapon punching holes in this thing as it makes its way across the room. The man backpedals and falls down (Monster is right on top of him at this point) over something as he is trying to get away. He fires off a few more shots while on his back and scampers to his feet. The monster still chasing he makes his way into the next room and slams the door behind him. You hear a series of clicks and other weird noises coming through the door. The man leans up against it and you hear a deep inhalation come from the other side of the door like the creature is sniffing around for his scent. The man is breathing heavily and removes one hand from the door and clutches his side, blood is running down his side and his pant leg and pooling under the door. Last shot is the creature kneeling on the other side of the door putting one hand to the blood (creature has four arms) then smelling it. "I have found you." He almost sings the words then the title screen shows and that's it.

Lets see if anyone else can get this detailed. It is the best looking anything that I have ever seen and the character models lighting and physics are on another level. The main character is impossible to confuse with anyone else and this game has not been revealed but I have hinted at it several times. This is not a cut scene or a render target it is actual game play and it is very impressive. Well the end is a cut scene but man ..... You literally cannot tell the difference and Yes



This was definitely all one shot.

Edited to add: I was just given the go ahead to post this and it is from an early vertical slice that I did get to see.
And before anyone asks No I cannot describe what the man is wearing because it would be a dead giveaway.
Hey man, thanks for the info drop, I am defs excited for the game you are describing.

I just wanted to ask if you have any information regarding Sony's PC strategy this gen. Is Sony ending exclusives or will it just be PS4 games getting ported? Will PS5 exclusive games release on PC? Is there a set time window for PC releases? Is Sony going to announce their strategy or will this be a case by case basis? I would hate for all ps5 announcements to be drowned out by PC port begging and I also question how they will ship tons of PS5 consoles without some sort of exclusivity be it timed or forever. If you could answer any of these questions it would be greatly appreciated.

It also may imply they are not planning on a separate SKU, but rather a patch much like the Pro/X1X.

PS5 reveal event invitations will be sent to press in next afew days, Sony also extended invitations to company investors for the upcoming event. Announcement later this month. see you.
Many of us trust you, I follow the insiders closely and it is clear that you are legal and you have already proven it. Do not judge the entire forum by those who do not believe you, everywhere there are critical people, but there are also people who value your contributions very much. Greetings and thanks for making the wait more entertaining.

No offence to Neogaf, but if you had real insider info what convinced you to share them in a less popular forum (in comparison to REE). For internet rep/credibility? For someone like Orisis I can understand because he’s been here many years, but you’ve only registered in Feb 2019. I kind of think you’re a burner account from Xbox trying to generate hype and eventual disappointment at the reveal. 😂
RetardEra is not a respectable website.
Read through the comments to see what people think of those pedos.

honestly, if Cyberpunk has a Framerate unlock option and a high detail option on One X, it will be fine.
just give us 2 modes, 1080p and 4K, and a separate framerate lock toggle you can activate and deactivate independent from the graphics mode.

if played on Series X it should easily run at 60fps.

Just a curious question.. which console sold more the X or the Pro?
If I remember correctly, the PS4 Pro has the lead but it also had a year headstart, but the X had a stronger debut compared to the Pro. Especially in the USA but X even had a stronger debut in the UK than the Pro.

Friday and no news of the PS meeting and the acquisition studio.
Those "insiders" are pure BS.
I keep saying it. These people are NOT in the loop.

They are NOT being informed by any official sources
They are NOT receiving current information either
And most are NOT tech savvy enough to deduce specs

Follow them at your own risk.

Says ps5 releasing after feb event.... ofcourse rumor but also says prices
There's no chance the PS5 will be releasing right after the February announcement. But if the price is announced during that Feb event, then pre-orders usually go up the next day on Amazon and other other major retailers.

That concept has been around a while I'm sure. Doesn't look too bad but I doubt it will be close to the real deal somehow.

ETA:

I love all those air vents. Thermal efficiency is key, so I would love that markup to have been a bit thicker. Too bad Sony will never do this. The Japanese love small, tidy boxes to fit in their little apartments, even if the Playstation system sounds like a jet engine taking off!

so, if i had to bet on console market share in 2027, i can see it being Nintendo at 40%, MS at 35%, and Sony at 25%. this is based on:
Not gonna happens. It'll require to drastically reverse all the current trends, that is practically impossible in given timeframe.
Nintendo is on decline. It pulled off from console space (by pretense of "unifying" with portable) and their portables are on steady decline as war with mobile takes its toll. And you suddenly propose that Nin invent something spectacular on the size of 2x Wii to pull themselves out of current situation.
Xbox, although should perform better, have almost zero chance to overthow PS as a king of the hill. Most people already settled in ecosystem (playstation ecosystem) and what's more important xbox is quite weak brand outside US/UK and not much can be done to change this, especially in given timeframe.
So most probably it'll remain the same PS > XBOX > Nin

Better description Monster walks upright until it runs across the room has four yellow eyes, four arms and two legs. Is brownish in color and stands taller than the main character until it runs across the room using all six limbs. Kind of insect like but very scary. The environment main character and monster all look real. Like not stylistic but photo realistic also I have never seen anyone use sub surface scattering to light a scene.
Would you say this game was on par with Hellblade 2? Since that’s the only footage I’ve seen with actual photorealistic environments. Also, how does the character model compare to Senua?

Like I say I doubt the design will be close to this mainly because it is far too complex and expensive looking. Real PS5 will be simpler/plainer I think. They did pick the correct PS5 logo though!

I said "could". Period. Don't add to my words.



Not going to argue this anymore.
I mean even if you considered the possibility of Horizon Zero Dawn PC Port might look better than Horizon 2 on PS5 is also considered wildly unrealistic expectation.

In the end, when Horizon 2 comes out on the PS5 looking a generation ahead of Horizon 1, you'll end up whining and crying about it just like you were crying about when Detroit BH, God of War Digital Foundry tech analysis and them came out looking better than any game out there on a weak 1.8 TF with 8 cores Jaguar clusters console that came out in 2013.

All I am saying going to say to you, is that your expectations are unrealistic and do not adhere to reality.

Agreed. Could see them announce pre-orders right after.

Could you imagine the possibility? The hardcore pay x amount for an advance version of the Console and then regular tier pricing and release for Holiday 2020?

Very far-fetched, but could be cool if something like that happened. Still, need to generate enough time for people to eventually cash in. Suspect.

This goes for all of them including the one with the riddles who sounds like Ted Rodgers on 3-2-1 with Dusty Bin.

Edit: read that 'leak'. It mentions pre-orders on the same day, not the Console going on sale immediately after. I think the article misunderstood that.

Must-have AAA softwares will determine a successful launch or not, and though your scenario would make quite a few happy, I just don't think Sony has any must-have titles completed at this time.

I agree. I posted my edit shortly after. I didn't see anything in the leak that pointed to an immediate sale.

Do you think these delays we've been seeing (most recently Iron Man VR) has anything to do with this Meeting incoming?

I'm no insider, fake or not, but hat's a logical assumption.

That Xbox price is also over the top. Fake rumor.
