Join Rich and Dave for a live hands-on, as they play MGS5, Crysis 3, Battlefield 1, COD Infinite Warfare, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza Horizon 3 at 8K resolution.
8K? Damn, guess Scorpio is obsolete already.
what about ps4 pro 4k upscale ? At least games will look perform better on Scorpio
PS4 at least has some exclusive games.
What games? What exclusives? We are going to buy a Scorpio for multiplats?
They really have brainwashed there players. They don't even care about games anymore. All the see is 4K.............with zero new exclusives and they don't even care or complain.
@esmitty what fans you speak of because I rarely see xbox fans bragging everywhere I go on any site all bragging being extra dramatic goes to the other camp
Well, games like Horizon, God Of War, Days Gone, The Last Of Us, Uncharted, The Last Guardian etc will always look and play better on the PS4 Pro and thats a fact.
Plus, they won't necessarily perform better, that's less of hardware issue, more of a dev issue. Remember, you can't have a Scorpio game targeting 60FPS if the Xbox One version can only target 30. That would mean Microsoft would be screwing over their core Xbox One base...........oh hold on, yeah they probably will then.
Well since PS4 Pro never claimed to be true 4k like Scorpio does the bigger disappointment would naturally be Scorpio but sure both are objectively obsolete if it makes you feel better.
Magic beans needed if you think you can afford an 8k rig.
Well you dont know what I can afford so your comment is pointless, and beyond that the price of tech always comes down so before you know it more people will be able to afford something that can easily out class Scorpio in terms of power.
Then the Pro is super obsolete.
Well the Pro has the benefit of actual exclusives but yes as it pertains to the 4k aspect sure, feel better?
yes its obsolete cause a tech that no one can afford is out there. very good observation
Wasn't really serious but you xbox guy sure seem to get salty about anything these days, you should get a sense of humor you'll enjoy life a lot more.
8k> Scorpio /s, just kidding no not really. Next gen is starting though.
I see a dead end with simply counting pixels, something else is going to have to come to the table like VR.
Being a VR owner, I don't ever see them being mainstream in their current form. They need to drop the wires and become an all in one device (VR with the gaming console built directly into the headset). Right now they're clumsy at best, and once that "magic" you felt experience a VR world for the first time wears off, you realize good games with more that 2-3 hours of content are few and far between.
What about the cost, weight and heat issues? Nah VR needs to be 4K wireless and it will be fine.
You can stream the content from a PC, like games on demand over a local network to bypass that issue. But I agree with the games, taking a low quality game and playing it at 4K or 8K is just a really sharp bad game. Games like Stalker, Metro and The Witcher are where its at.
16x more pixels on one single-GPU card and still 30fps in FH3, like on a console that's currently shaping the game design for all the plaforms. Nothing to complain about...
The question is when will Nvidia or AMD will realease a single GPU with 20+ Teraflops??? Next year?
Im a console gamer, but im not blind and never will console gaming reach near the graphical level of a gaming pc. The Money diference is huge and a average gamer cant pay 1500 or 2000 for a gaming PC
Um. You can build a gaming pc for around 600 usd...
Ya, you can build a rig that supports 8k for $600 /s
I wouldn't call building a rig with the cheapest parts possible a gaming rig.
Don't worry consoles gamers the PS5 Pro will be 8k capable or at least upscale
Screw 8k just want fun games . When 8 is viable sure , but most companies cant make 4k games , they are too expensive for assets etc.
Oh don't start rolling this ball already.
This is one of the main reason why I don't like to play games on my PC, because you have to ticker with the settings a lot for each game.
No you don't. It has auto detect. Stop playing on a potato
Those beautiful graphics on screen could use some HDR support. So that the colors would pop out even more.
"4k hurts my eyes. Those filthy 4k console peasants".
Yes folks, i predict this is going to happen.
Ugh...I know right? 1080p already gives me a headache.
Oh great already 8K talk. This got ridiculous. Already can see the PC master race BS that's going to come from this.
Sure just buy me thousands of dollars in upgrades to do so.
Who is even thinking about 8K seriously at this moment? It simply isn't feasible yet. What about bandwidth strain? Storage solutions? What type of a cooling system do you need to run this optimally and with a great frame rate? How many displays will support this? How long before it's widely supported by tv manufacturers? How much will it cost? How long will it take the price to come down?
