Tim Sweeney on the Tech Demo: "Nanite and Lumen tech powering it will be fully supported on both PS5 and Xbox Series X and will be awesome on both."

It really is a shame that this even needs to be clarified at all. Games are going to be so amazing next gen.
Once we start to see more and more games all of this petty squabbling over trivial bullshit will fall to the wayside.
Well, at least until miserable system fanboys inevitably find something else to complain about lol

Exactly, this was more to quell the onslaught of fanboys. The meltdowns and fights had to be stopped. It was tearing the internet apart. But also, is anyone surprised? Even if there was a difference, not saying that there is one, no way Tim would go into details.

Now the fight will be "So would it have run better on the Series X?!?!? 4k/60 on the X?!?!" It never ends man

If you read his post backwards u get.

What?

Yeah, Phil called last night, asked me to make Tim respect his contract.
Phil is my best soul provider in the industry.
He still look nice and friendly and yeah gamepass was my idea. 😈

It made think that I need to do something about cerny, his face begins to scare people...he seems to like his pact to much.

What? Yeah, I work with both side.
Business baby, business.

Don’t mind me, I’m just enjoying myself with these Little wars.
It was too quiet in the Android/apple , marvel / DC during lockdown.

Sincerely Yours
S.

Lol little late to walk back yesterday. Oh well he made everyone who was not a Sony loyalist pissed off man up and live with it. Lesson learned dont trash the platform your store is on lol. As they say dont bite the hand that feeds you. It was fine to do demo but he should of left it at that since he had a store. Going on twitter ond doing a technical break down why the platform your store is on is POS and is 4th rate had to make the marketing team pull that hair out. It be like phil going on Twitter and doing a breakdown why the series x sucks especially to a market who refers to themselves as the master race.

It seems he had to say this to curb the amount of FUD being created around the demo.

Tim Sweeney needs to stfu. Everything he says has to be for the benefit of Epic.

This whole demo on PS5 seems like he's courting Sony to put some of their games in the Epic store. I smell a corroboration brewing down the road in that regard.

No. :messenger_unamused:
PS5 was choosen to debut because ....marketing tieup .

.dat 5.5gbs io SSD dream..Tim just killed it with this Op tweet. :messenger_bicep:

Yep. Pure marketing. One hand washes the other type of deal.

Sweeney debuts it's new engine on PS5. Makes PS5 look good (even though said engine will also work on all platforms).

And since Sweeney is a shrewd business man, and doesn't do anything unless he's getting something in return, he'll get Sony to put some of their games in the Epic store. We all know Sony will inevitably put their games on PC so this seems like a real plausible scenario.

Tim: Phil we promised what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas

Phil: That was before your PS5 Demo. Now I got a case of “digging up a dead Hooker-itis”

Tim: Ok, but. Let’s clear the air here before you get ahead of yourself ... I draw the line at C64 support.

Nanite and Lumen were never even in question, though? It was the flying section and lack of LOD pop-in that people were speculating would only be possible with an ultra fast SSD I/O solution.
This whole discussion will be obsolete by the time next-gen arrives and everyone finds out that not a single developer is actually using this tech. Games will look and feel just like you're used to from this gen. It's not the hardware. It's not the available engines. It's not even the creativity of the people wanting to make games. It's the publishers and their business strategies. Innovation and risk = bad, tried and tested formulas = good.
