"This is 720p for the in-game rendering and 1080p for the UI overlay."

The bad news.

jobboy437d ago

wat??!! 720p and struggling to get 60fps? can't believe it...

Ghost_of_Tsushima437d ago (Edited 435d ago )

I just can't wait until 4K/60fps becomes the norm so we can start improving graphics and A.I. more and stop worrying about resolution and framerate so much.

luckytrouble435d ago

The game runs like ass on the PC too. The fact that they have 720p and nearly 60 FPS shows a hell of a lot more work went into optimizing this version of the game than the PC version.

GreenUp435d ago

It even struggles with 1080p/60fps with top of the line computer hardware with everything in ultra. More like 20fps if lucky. That's with Dual 980ti's and a 5960x cpu.

C-H-E-F435d ago

Really? because I could've sworn not so long ago you were saying 1080p/60fps the norm now it's 4k/60fps by the time that becomes the norm you will want 8k/60fps lmao.

The point of my response is, you are happy now until the next resolution war starts.

freshslicepizza435d ago (Edited 435d ago )

the game demands quite a bit on your cpu and that is one area sony did not upgrade on the ps4 pro. any game that is quite demanding on your cpu will struggle on the ps4 and ps4 pro. thats why battlefield runs a bit smoother on the xbox one compared to the ps4 but the ps4 easily outshines the xbox one when it comes to resolution. if sony could improve the cpu the ps4 pro would be a monster but instead they just gave it a bit of a boost.

It's Ark. the game is terribly optimized.

Queasy437d ago

It's not optimized for release yet. They've been putting out performance improvements steadily as they work to release. Additionally, they showed a "Detailed Graphics" option but we don't know what that does yet.

This web site say anything about a ps4 release date? The web page won't display for me. I'm so tied of waiting on this game but figured id ask?

Liqu1d436d ago

It's been submitted to Sony. December is the expected release date.

I actually would like an argument/fight with these devs. I bought it aaaages on my Xbox1 and its still an unfinished glitchy mess. I just want the full version of the game because its a great concept for a game. Idiots need to learn how to properly develop and finish a game!

Liqu1d436d ago

Shouldn't have bought an unfinished game then.

Guyfamily999435d ago

(Sorry this had to be said XD, I agree though):

Your profile pic... The irony...

uth11435d ago

Maybe they could wave magic wands or something and make it finished

EddieNX 435d ago

Or they could just finish it instead of releasing it 2 years early...

iceman06435d ago

Isn't that what you sign up for in Early Access?
