The Evil Within 2 is unfortunately another major game that doesn't offer support for the PS4 Pro.
I will wait and see what DF say about this before i make a decision.
So far only this video, but looks promising. Looking into getting it it today. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
They said there were no enhancements lol they video is already out. Same res, same assets.
Then i will not buy it till they add support
So the PRO doesn't enhance games automatically? Just a little? I'm confused...
@OMGitzThatGuy "They said there were no enhancements lol they video is already out. Same res, same assets." I wonder how Sony are letting third party studios to violate strickly rules and policies regarding support for the PS4 Pro? They said it´s mandatory that every game released for the PS4 after november 2016 should have an enhanced version for the PS4 Pro. Smdh.
I wouldn't worry since it's from an Xbox site, not from the official dev site.
Analysis is from Digital Foundry.
Sony needs to put their foot down on PS4 PRO support.
yes they should.
It's up to developers and even their own 1st and 2nd party games don't all have Pro support.
@moldybread "It's up to developers and even their own 1st and 2nd party games don't all have Pro support." Not in this case its not. Devs are free to choose how they will utilize the Pro´s resources and power for their games, but that´s all about it. PS4 Pro support for all PS4 games are mandatory! Sony has been dropping the ball since the Pro release and that´s is not the first time that a game sees not PS4 Pro support at all.
It’s bethesda. They have deals with Microsoft on these types of things. They won’t or can’t support Sony until they can support Microsoft too.
Don't think that's the case. Microsoft had a deal with Bethesda for Fallout 4 marketing. Yet that got a Pro patch in February this year.
Bethesda and MS are tied together. They always have been since 360. For whatever reason Bethesda loves to provide xbox more support which made sense last gen but didn't make any sense this Gen.
We agree here fo sure. HZD and UC4 (among others) showed us how much games can be dialed up on the Pro and they are amazing and better than on base hardware. I personally have been a bit disappointed with the amount of titles getting proper Pro support as of late, and some of the enhanced titles seem to skimp a bit on the Pro versions.
I think the Xbox one X launch will also help Ps4 pro support. Call me a weirdo, but call me unbiased. It will open another market for developers and more importantly, money wise, publishers.
No they shouldn't unlike Microsofts Xbox one the PS4 isn't a failing console. The pro isn't the main console for Sony. For Microsoft the Xbox one clearly isn't thier main console as for nearly a year all were hearing is the X1 Scorpio, it's unbelievable tht the X1 is now almost ditched and fanboys accept that and are willing to pay £450 just to side with thier favourite console manufacturer who's main games are now also on PC
... okay champ
Failing console? 25-35 million consoles isn't failing. Business obviously isn't a strong point of yours. Then you throw around "Fanboys" after being one yourself with you utterly stupid "Failing" remark. Xbox One hasn't failed.... the PS4 has just been extremely successful. Rocket science this is not.
no reason to own a Pro
Somy really should enforce games to have performance/resolution options as standard on all games for pro to kick all these lazy developers up their arse
that is strange, for a newly released title as well.. O_o on a side note: the game performs a lot better than the original though. Stable 30fps.
30fps in 2017... sigh
We had 60 fps in the early 2000’s just like that some games will sacrifice frames for something else. Doing frames twice as fast literally means you need a twice as powerful computer. I’d rather them max other things than frames
@DanteVFenris666 - 60fps is not a lot to ask of in this day and age. I am just surprised that this game is only 30fps (with reports of frame dips). I am even more surprised that there is no Pro support.
well, if you compare it to the performance of the first game, which ran in the 20s. . . You would appreciate the latest outing lol.
@Woolly - I slogged through the first one, so seeing at least that I get a solid 30fps (with my Pro) that is something. Just a little disappointed that there are no Pro enhancements. I am still super eager to give it a go. My copy is out for delivery today.
@DanteVFenris666 we had 60 fps in the 80s... it started going away when consoles started having 3d game engines... came back for ps2 and then went away again in the 360/ps3 gen.
Please stop bringing this up. Framerate hasn't been a priority for about 3 or 4 gens.
I'd have to disagree the 60fps you talk about would need beefier cpu inside current consoles. I don't think at thier launch 2013 they could have afforded to chuck in a i5 4590 equivalent if you know what I mean
Well this is a little disappointing. Still have the game coming today, but I had no clue. I just assumed that it would have Pro support. Here's hoping the Pro gets a patch in a month when the One X version launches.
It'll get a patch for sure. Probably just delayed for one X "reasons"
Shame from bethesda
Another major game...what are these other major games? Name at least 3.
it'll get a patch for the pro. I'm sure they just wanted to get the game out without taking longer for development to make it Pro enhanced they will more then likely be working on it now to release a patch to make it a higher resolution and textures. it is good to have the pro support straight up but i personally would rather the game be released when its finished and they work on the pro patch later on without the need to delay the game. either way its not like you cant play the game on the pro.
Sorry but how long has the pro been on the market? No excuse not to have a patch it doesnt take that much development time, especially if it is confirmed for one X enhancements in little over 3 weeks. If they havent started now i doubt they will have a patch done for one X launch
How many times has it been stated it is up to the dev in the end? it doesn't have to be done instantly or at all for that matter if the dev doesn't want to, even though i personally would rather it be done before the game is released. Also on top of that it's not like it's going to make the game play any different.
Bethesda playing favorites? Color me surprised.
Wouldn't be the first time.
Yes, that would be the implication.
they have obviously taken loads of money from Microsoft before. they were one of the key partners in Microsofts anti pc gaming campaign even though oblivion sold very well on pc.
its not even listed as xbox one x enhanced on the game itself. usually they put that in the back with all the other specifications, but it isn't.
Cuz it's Xclusive doy
This is disappointing. If I had a Pro I'd be frustrated
I'm further disappointed by the fact that many games say PS4 Pro enabled on the box and they clearly are not. Also many games not having support out of the box. a patch is no good to me when Sony eventually stops issuing patches. Which then leaves me with a paperweight of a console.
They probably have an exclusive deal with ms for 4k.
It has been taken off the Xbox one x supported games list. That is going to be bad haveing to play the base spec Xbox 1 game on the Xbox X.
So what's the difference with playing the base spec PS4 version on the Pro with no enhancements?
DF hasn't done a Xbox breakdown yet but from IGN you can see the Xbox is running at a lower Rez. So with no dynamic scaling the powerful Xbox x will have to run at let's just say some weird sub 1080 rez. When the X could do so much more. At lest on the ps4 pro you can get 1080 Bec the base PS4 can handle it. So when the x comes out it will be hard to decide what to play the games on pro or x when the devs don't always tell us there plans. After I got burned by prey am not picking this up today. So pretty much no difference Xbox one x owners can be 180 lines of resolution more outraged hahaha
@SPARTAN3 - so what makes you think that the One X wouldn't have a patch to make it in line with what the PS4/Pro would have at the bare minimum?
i did state in a comment before that it wont make it play any different. its just like playing the game on a base ps4 or xbone on a 4k tv which I'm sure many will be doing anyway with no complaints. its good to have the extra res bump ect but its not the end of the world. and yes before you ask i do want pro and x support for the game, i just wouldn't go out of my way to send death threats to the devs to make them do a patch coz its not the end of the world if it doesn't get one.
How will that be bad? It will be the same exact game.
As a PS4 Pro owner I feel like this mid generation console experiment has been a failure. and future patch is no good for posterity reasons e.g. (unable to acquire patch in the future). I'm sure Sony didn't want to take the aggressive approach and mandate PS4 Pro support but in hindsight it seems like it would have been the correct decision. It can't be that hard to have the game switch resolution to 1440p at a bare minimum for PS4 Pro. I'm starting to wonder if Sony should just take extended resolution support into their own hands. expand upon boost mode.
The Pro is even worse if you don't have a 4K TV. So many of the "Pro" enhanced games only benefit 4K gamers because it's either the base game or a 4K mode version. Very few games have seen any sort of 1080p enhancements made. The One X promises to do better in that regard, but that still remains to be seen. Thank god I upgraded to a 4K TV this past xmas, otherwise there would have been almost zero reason to upgrade to a Pro console. Of course I have a PSVR so that was my primary reason for upgrading to the Pro console since I didn't have a 4K TV at the time.
Most of the games benefit from supersampling on 1080p TVs and many of them have various improvements that don't require 4K displays at all. http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
@PowerControls - thanks for the list. I dunno, many of the games I am seeing lately only seem to have a 4K mode or a regular mode with no mention of downsampling for 1080p users.
The PC version plays and looks great!
It does I can confirm that
I have a pro and was tempted to buy it today. Glad I held back. Now I'll buy it when the price drops. Thank u for the heads-up gearnuke :D
if they don't add it while adding X support then that's a disgusting move and they should feel bad.
Interestingly the Xbox page for Evil Within 2 used to have badges for 4K Ultra HD and HDR for the Xbox One X verion but those have been removed.
still has the Xbox One X enhanced logo though https://www.xbox.com/en-US/...
doesn't matter the back of the box on the game doesn't list any sort of Xbox One X enhancements
Swank, that doesn't matter, older games like BF4 don't have X enhanced logo but can still got support. The X isn't out yet, the back of a game box doesn't defined the final product.
Bummer for the Pro I guess. This is kinda where the X wins beyond the extra power. Even if it weren’t patched on the X, it would still be able to run the game super fast and use all of the machines available power to keep it from dipping. It just wouldn’t have the higher res assets etc. and it doesn’t need boost mode which let’s be honest - is great but also inconsistent. Some games don’t even change in boost mode as it’s basically just kinda tricking the game to use some extra power locked up.
Are you saying that keeping an Xbox One 720p/30fps game from dipping is using all of the beast's available power?;-) And being totally serious...how is it different from boost mode on PS4 Pro?
@Neonridr If they were going to patch any upgrade why not go all the way? With it being taken off the Xbox one x list it makes me think no patch is comeing
