Sweetness. This game already looks fantastic on PS4. How much better can they do? 😮

Thoughts, SW? Will you be checking this out?

Awesome. I can't wait to play last gen games on the system that "believes in generations".

Damn, I just beat the game last week, would have been nice to play the updated version on my PS5. It was a gorgeous game though graphically even without enhancements.

You could do the same thing already with the disc version of the game by not installing the patch. Now you get to play the patched version of the game at 4K checkerboard/60fps. This also opens this up to those who only have the digital version. :)

Cows celebrating playing old games is so hypocritical. Keep up the bad work.

The funniest thing about that shitty game was that they had to patch in (later on after everyone finished it) the ability to skip cutscenes. How dumb can they get LOL.

It may be because their old games are actually good?

God of War was arguably the best game of last generation.

The game looks great, no doubt, but it could definitely look better. This patch does not change the fidelity of the graphics though. It just allows you to have the benefits of quality mode (4K checkerboard) and performance mode (60fps) all in one mode now. You no longer have to choose between the two.

Sweet. Almost done my Survival II playthrough of Days Gone. Perfect timing. Hopefully we see this with more PS4 games. There are plenty I haven't played yet.

Funny, if I had a Series X, I'd still be playing Gears 5 and FH 3-4, not exactly recent games.

Are you celebrating the basic settings upgrade or that it's free? Either way, it's sad af.

@silentchief:Really? And here I thought that they kept saying that BC is irrelevant because no one is playing old games anyway.

The PS5 is probably not capable. PS4 Pro was running 4K checkerboard at 30fps or less. PS5 is running it at 60fps which automatically requires doubling the GPU power. Then you have to factor in the extra power to keep a steady 60fps. That is still only running in checkerboard. So, to bring that up to native resolution, there is probably not enough headroom to keep a steady 4k/60fps. It can most likely run at native 4K/30. 30fps though.... yuck.

Yeah, 4K/60 or higher is an unrealistic target for these consoles. Even high end PCs will struggle to achieve that on demanding games. Overall, I think the PS5 and XSX are pretty good for their price. They have a good balance with the CPU and GPU and have SSDs. They offer a large leap over the last-gen base consoles. Checkerboard is not that bad and it is worth it as long as the game is 60fps.

4k/60fps being difficult is fine. What's not fine is a three years old semi-linear games not being able to run at a native 4k resolution. And its not like they've added RT or even increased the graphical settings. They haven't done anything. Its the same graphics as they were on the original PS4 from 2013.

These games should get a PS5 upgrade too:

  • Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • The Last Guardian (runs locked 60fps on unpatched version, which is crazy)
  • Ratchet & Clank

You have to be realistic about things. The base PS4 game was 1080p/30fps with dips. You are asking for 4X the resolution and twice the frame rate. That is a massive GPU upgrade required for that and the PS5 already has a nice upgrade over the PS4. If PS5 games were targeting 1080p/30, the graphics fidelity would be amazing. However, people want the higher resolutions these days to appreciate the finer details. That comes at a huge performance cost. So, you can't have everything with a console that is $500 or less. There are finite processing resources and developers have to pick and choose what they use them for.

@Pedro: All the gaming factions as a whole show tons of hypocrisy, so where are you when lems are doing the same thing? Your trolling game is getting weaker by the moment.
