Batman: Arkham Knight dev says Batmobile wouldn't be possible without data streaming

MMGN writes: In promoting its highly anticipated new game Batman: Arkham Knight, developer Rocksteady hasn't held back with the buzz talk: "This wouldn't have been possible on last gen," they say.

Well, cool, but what the hell does that even mean? Why wouldn't it be possible? Can you show us, please?

It could be done, the city and post process effects would just have to be toned down.

So that could not have been done last gen, doesn't it?

GreetingsfromCanada1296d ago

It could, It just wouldn't look that great.

Data streaming is how opoen world loads constantly without loading screens. Every open world game had that. The problem was how efficiently and quickly it's done. Data streaming is nothing new.

looking forward to this game.

So do you require internet to play this game? Article is so vague

Volkama1296d ago

Article is not vague, it's dumb. The dev was talking about streaming data off a hard drive.

Arkham Knight will work on submarines.

...this article needs to be taken down as its misrepresenting what the team is saying. Never do they say a word about "cloud" or "internet" or "server" in fact....they are not talking about "Streaming" from one source to another. They are talking about the streaming of data from disk to now off the drive.

....I see nothing regarding cloud, internet etc. The streaming of data being referred to is based off of the data playing off of the drive vs off of the disk.

Why is everyone treating data streaming as if it's something new? Associating it with cloud, internet and other irrelevant stuffs?

_-EDMIX-_1295d ago

lol, because they hear "stream" and think 1 thing! Its just a garbage article that is trying to grasp at straws and assume, even filling in junk the developer never states.

Caters to the lowest.
