Companies like Sony, Microsoft, LG, EA, Ubisoft, Square Enix and others have formed the HDR Gaming Interest Group to optimize content.
Nice! Can't wait to see what they come up with
YES PLEASE!! as a person obsessed with image quality, the inconsistency at which HDR is currently being handled is driving me NUTS! it's being tacked onto game that weren't mastered for HDR, others are crazy dim, and some even look worse like U4 and Deus Ex. So coming together as a group to figure out a standard sounds amazing
nah Uncharted 4 and Deus ex do not look worse in HDR. Neither do Horizon or AC origins. It does get tacked on poorly though like with fifa, battlefield, cod, wolfenstein. Super unnecessary
Was nice to see it didn't get added to Halo 5, 343i was honest and said the game wasn't built for it. Haven't played some of those titles but it is definitely poor implementation in Uncharted 4, I've been trying to get through the game over the past few days and swapped it on and off, the game wasn't designed for it.
@skull Uncharted 4 looks great with HDR - yours must be broke.
actually the only games that did an incredible job with hdr are uncharted 4 (for some reason it even looked better with lost legacy) and horizon
@Exari GT Sport takes HDR top spot for me.
Cool. If I can plug in any system to any tv, and play a game from any publisher without messing with settings I’m all for it!!
That's what HDR is supposed to provide. A consistent quality standard despite the display. Unfortunately, the displays themselves don't really adhere to the standards that actually exist within HDR, and gaming so far hasn't adopted them either, and tend to just take a cursory approach by increasing sharpness and not really adjusting the colors properly.
HDR gives so much more to visual quality than 4K does. I am all for this!
HDR doesn’t take any additional resources. No real reason to sacrifice resolution. I’d like both.
Completely disagree. I prefer to have both but I'd take the ultra crisp looks of of 4K game over a lower resolution blurry/soft mess with HDR.
Bless up HDR is so inconsistent right now
Didn't we already have a group like this before? HDR implementation is all over the place at the moment.
I'm probably the only one but for games mostly I prefer sdr, I like the darker black look, some games its better than others, but overall I usually leave HDR off.
Ima have to buy a new 4K HDR set this holiday. I love HDR in games
nah Uncharted 4 and Deus ex do not look worse in HDR. Neither do Horizon or AC origins. It does get tacked on poorly though like with fifa, battlefield, cod, wolfenstein. Super unnecessary.visit this site......... www.jobsthings.com
