Epic is doing a very good job of hyping up the PS5 and not just their engine, I wonder how much input Sony have had in this presentation? especially considering this one tech demo is far better than anything Xbox showed last week.
How can you be blown away by a demo that sole purpose is to show rhe new tech of an engine. This doesn't resemble a game any shape or form. Maybe if it would be a walking simulator but thats it fir now
Impressive. Super surprised about that date. I was told in January that UE5 was still a couple years off. Maybe they scaled MVP or maybe my buddy was just off on his estimate.
Regardless, glad to see it in action and cannot wait time see some real games using it later in the gen.
Sweeney says that Sony’s storage architecture is far ahead of “the best SSD solution you can buy on PC today. And so it’s really exciting to be seeing the console market push forward the high-end PC market in this way.”
“[The PS5] puts a vast amount of flash memory very, very close to the processor,” says Sweeney. “So much that it really fundamentally changes the trade-offs that games can make and stream in. And that’s absolutely critical to this kind of demo,” Sweeney explained.
“This is not just a whole lot of polygons and memory. It’s also a lot of polygons being loaded every frame as you walk around through the environment and this sort of detail you don’t see in the world would absolutely not be possible at any scale without these breakthroughs that Sony’s made.”
