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.
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
Sucks but oh well. I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by the graphics anyways.
These 4k consoles are pointless.
Xbox One X > PS4 Pro ...Third party
Are you part of the marketing team?
It’s doesn't need any additional graphical fidelity, that’s possibly why.
Yes it does. The Evil Within 2 is far from the most beautiful game ever created. There is always room for video games to look better. Always. No reason not to make a game look better when better hardware is available.
my question is how does the Xbox One version run?
why though, it's manitory since last october/
I'm don't think MS knows what they've done. Now that they're pushing this enhanced for Xbox one X bs, PS Pro gamers are going to demand an enhancement too, and I'm pretty sure these companies don't want to alienate the base that will probably give them the most sales for their games. It's just extra work for them that probably won't even pay off for them in the long run.
Oh well plus its not microsoft fault both sony and microsoft decided to make these mid gen upgrade consoles i always said they shouldve delay base ps4 and xbox one so they couldve been 4k consoles from the start
I don't remember Sony pushing 4K like MS. 4K is a huge selling point for the xboxonex, even above games.
@Silly gameAr sony drop the ps4 pro first awhole year before microsoft xbox one x so its looks to me sony pushing 4k just as much as microsoft
Would you be saying the same if Sony did this ? Everybody loves when Sony makes exclusivity deals & it works both ways
I got the Xbox One version today - there's no mention on the box about enhancements/4K/HDR at all. I'm guessing not all games will get upgrade patches for the new consoles.
Its payed. Nothing more. One company got a deal and doesnt allow the other to have. Nothing new here. Bottom line. It wont affect sales, because hardcore gamers are the lowest % of buyers. Casual are the main market and they just want to play the game.
I guess the devs felt the diffrence would be to small from base ps4?
Goes to say how much money MS invests into buying timed-exclusive rights to third-party "enhanced games". Disgusting tbh. Not surprised though.
You would celebrate Sony doing this though
No way man, thirdplat should nerver be exclusive with anything.
@Zabatsu like Spider-Man games right ?
Pro support will come alongside the one x patch surely. That’s said I expect the one x to edge it in digital foundry tests.
I'm curious if it actually has X support. It says so on the XBox webpage, but that could easily be misinformation.
Dont worry PS4Pro owners. Just wait a little and a patch will come.
All future comparisons ps4 will lose to xbox one. If you want the best version get an xbox if not then stop whining.
