I was driving around in the rain last night and there were reflections everywhere. This is real life. Not a video game. The traffic lights, street lights, car headlights. None of it looked 1:1. They were blurry, kind of vaseline covered looking instead of simple mirror like reflections.Watch Dogs uses on consoles only "short range" RT. Everything in the distance is more or less a mix of SSR & cubemaps. Only reflections near you are RT based.
And those RT reflections are also really low-res.
But yes, still looks good.
Spiderman on PS5 (as good as it looks) is also just low-res & lower-lod, short-distance RT with checkerboard-upscaling. Stills looks great, but don't expect much more of it.
The point is as long as it looks good, we dont need to go all Alex Battlestar Gallactica on them with 5000% zoom looking for sharp knees.
