Because he also has a professional career. He cant go "PS5 sucks, cant run my game". He is being subtle.
Lol this is a joke right ? U need to take a chill pill. Non stop posting about how bad ps5 is and how amazing xsx is even when it's derailing to the thread. Get a grip . Xsx is 18% more powerful and ps5 is 125% faster . Deal with it and stop derailing threads

Apparently speaking about Xbox in a xbox thread is derailing. Do you just type those posts and expect no one to reply or everyone will agree to what you said ?

Next gen speculation threads are one helluva drug.

That just means they're limiting the potential of the game on PC.
The only way this can possibly apply is the difference between the controller and mouse/keyboard. Because the hardware in these upcoming consoles is more than good enough to keep up with many gaming PCs out there, and even have a storage speed advantage in many cases.

Your console costs 500 and a high end PC 2000. Why shouldn’t your console be technically inferior? You’re lucky it’s that close with an XSX.

I know, but so many people seems not know as much, so GAF will be fun to read for a while. It's good to not be in a "team".

Also this game is a very unique shooter, so it's good to know that M&K players will play on their platform of choice (haven't followed this game so I didn't know if PC was confirmed before).

Good read and they've shown more class and professionalism than the media and/or industry is currently showing.
If you're selling to both sides you should be impartial and not kiss ass like Epic and other devs have been doing.

Lol Reddit. Kinda disappointed this is all you can come up with fangirl.
Yeah let's not start with the name calling. This is getting sidetracked, a Dev says thier IP is a console exclusive on the X to acheive PC parity. This is great news for everyone. I'm sure it will be on gamepass so it's a steal and the story is 6yrs in the making.

So ps5 couldn't run an indie game because of 18% difference?
Gen hadn't even started and the 18% are already being stretched as far as possible by PR.
If the X1 could run EVERYTHING the Ps4 could, sometimes with minimal difference, then this is the biggest BS ever.

Just looked that game up. Wow, that's Giger level freakishness..! Hmm, shame to miss out on it, being a PlayStation devotee. Well, maybe somewhere down the line a PS5 version will arrive.

Gosh it's console exclusive because MS paid for it. All of that power talk is garbage. It'll be on PS5 6-12 months down the line, quote me on that

All these indie developers of Xbox exclusives and PS5 exclusives just need to shut the fuck up, for god's sake. It's embarassing. They don't go exclusive because platform X or Y is better, they just do it because they don't have the resources to develop for both at the same time. So stop finding excuses, just be fucking honest about it. I'll not get any of those "exclusives" on either platform until they are available on the other platform just to make a point.

Timed exclusivity, then. Okay, I can wait.

huh?

You need to read the whole quote:

“Good performance of the game is important to us. Xbox Series X is a very capable hardware that enables parity with the PC version of the game. We can’t discuss any info regarding PlayStation.”

Doesn't sound to me that he said that he can't discuss any info regarding PlayStation because there is a timed exclusive deal, I think the just doesn't want to shit on PS5 or say that PS5 can't achieve parity with the PC Version of the game.

It's like that physics-based game indie developer, he said he's making the game on Xbox out of personal preference (knows the toolchain, etc.), and zealots ran with it turning it into proof that the PS5 would never be able to run it. Similar situation here.

Feel like a chaperone having to pull apart to children. Does it matter who started what? We don't have to bring ourselves down to there people's level to get a point across.

On topic, game looks amazing. It will obviously likey see the light of day on the PS5 at some point in the future or if sequels take off. Everyone wins

are we sure this game will not release on current gen too ?
because it seems it's made with them in mind
Maybe it could, but considering it's still being worked on at this point, maybe they won't bother with current gen any more. It's their choice, really.

People are reading too much into this. It's a Xbox/PC exclusive with a pinch of marketing on top and that's it.
Unless a vanilla RTX2080 (or 2070 Super at worst) can't handle a game that scales all the way down to a GTX750.
I mean, c'mon guys.. :messenger_winking:

These are pretty low specs, so what's the concern that this would take a lot to run at 60fps? I think both PS5 and Series X specs is way better than this. Even the PRO consoles could offer a very competent version of this game going but the specs......Mid gen consoles are decked with RX 580's, a tad weaker, that is stronger than a GTX 970.....

Of course he ain't saying "Because Microsoft paid us" lmao.

Btw, this just confirms that consoles are still gonna be technically inferior to PC this year when the game comes out.

Not that I care, really, but I'll have some good breaks from work reading gaf for sure ;)
Do you hold PS exclusive devs to the same standard?

Where was all this “PR” talk when Epic/Sony were trying to insinuate that that tech demo was only possible on PS5.

Only a few days after a disappointing showing of AA games by MS. That demo looked better than probably any launch game we will get. But they knew exactly what they were doing by breaking their silence at that time.

We are running up to two console launches by huge corporations. Money is gonna be thrown, bullshit is going to be claimed. And may it deliver us great moments and memes.

Stop all this conspiracy shit, it’s how business works.

Is this the game ?



Looks like they got their PC game up and running finally, and MS helped them get the project going.

Small teams need breaks.

If that is gameplay....I’m not surprised they didn’t show this during the XSX video reel from a few weeks ago.
