PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett release dates are creeping ever closer, but what do development studios want from the next-generation of consoles.
After the X I'm pump for what Scarlett can do
Xbox Scartlett won’t be close to PC as it’s already so ahead of Xbox One X. Being able to play all Xbox One exlusives on PC makes owning an Xbox a dumb idea.
So, by your logic playing on a PC that is not as capable as the X is a dumb idea too. And that means, according to Steam's most recent numbers, that almost 95% of PC gamers are pretty damn stupid for not having a gaming computer at least as graphically powerful as the X.
Never played a game on a PC in my life The X is where it's at for me it's my favorite console right now
You will need a fairly new GPU to play Xbox Scarlett games on a pc. For those who do not want the expense it is a great option. I would switch to PC if they made every game cross play ( few of my friends own pc's) and allowed me to sell my games once finished with them. As it is my 970 will not be upgraded for a few more years, not worth it for me at the moment.
Most people don't have Computers, that match Xbox One X power....of coarse there are some that do, but at what cost? Witcher 3 was best on the X1X after it got its patch, it had HDR, BEFORE the PC version, I don't even know it Witcher 3 has got the HDR patch yet. Anyway, the X1X, plays many games VERY close to High End PC's...Scarlet will no doubt be more powerful than the X, which is already 40% more powerful than Pro. There very well should be next gen, enough power on both PS5 And Xbox 2, to graphically rival any PC game. Games already look really great, like Horizon 4, next gen, is not going to be a leap, that blows our minds, the graphical saturation point SHOULD be reached next gen. Developers should be able to do anything they want, no matter which system. If Sony goes backward compat, at least with PS4 games, on the 5, I will buy both systems. Xbox 2, will be backwards compatible, Microsoft has worked too hard on its back catalog not to carry the games to XBOX 2. Now, I want Switch 2.0 4K. I don't think a 4K game machine could be the size of a Switch and $299, soon though.
After the x, I can't wait to see what the ps5 can do.
Didn't mean to offend you playboy
@snoopgg "After the x, I can't wait to see what the ps5 can do." Me too! I sure that Cerny took some serious notes from the Xbox One X´s hardware, and i think he has something special in mind for the PS5, specially considering that Spencer already said that the Scarlett will be the more powerful console when it releases.
Obscure, well if it releases one year after the ps5 then it will be more powerful. (Yes water is wet). What I'd like to see MS do is go toe to toe with Sony and release their system on the same month. Now that will be interesting.
@UltraNova they released the PS4 and Xbox One a week a part in the same month and Sony didn't even do a world wide release until a few months later
@above You are missing the point here buddy.
It does seem pretty insane. Imagining what just twice the RAM would do, much less 2.5x if we're lucky. And Ryzen is going to make the 60fps graphical tradeoff much simpler for developers, I imagine more and more games will atleast have a 60fps mode(and graphically it will nearly be as good as the 30fps mode.) Only thing I hope for is that it has better cooling. I don't expect miracles, but Xbox One/X is much quieter than PS4/Pro, so Vapor Chamber cooling, as well as a form factor like the Pro(yes, slightly large is what I'm expecting as we're not getting much of a jump without keeping the form factor on the slightly larger end), could easily lower the decibels quite a bit. TBH the Pro is not crazy huge anyway.
Soul reaver should be next
Next-gen won't fix your bad writing and broken pbr pipeline, Crystal Dynamics.
Early reviews of Shadow of Tomb Raider are fairly positive. It's not like Crystal Dynamics has been pumping out mediocre games 🙄
I dont think its crystal dynamics behind shadow of the tomb rider, wasnt it Eidos Montreal?
Which is silly considering it looks like a step back from Rise of the Tomb Raider.. Any other game is more of the same = Nit pick reviews "It's more or less the same" Tomb Raider is more of the same = Oh it's fine...no problem "more or less the same is a good thing"
@Foxtrot. The Uncharted games are more of the same just improved upon. Uncharted 4 being basically perfection on that formula. Sequels usually ARE more of the same.
@Razmiran. Crystal Dynamics made the excellent ROTR which is sitting at an 88 meta. My point is they've made great games. I would love to see what they do next gen
Tomb Raider games are good. They just happen to be not as good as uncharted, but I mean c'mon very few games are of that quality.
Why even bring up Uncharted though. I get the similarities but they can coexist
I'd disagree there. I thought even the 2013 reboot had better gunplay and world traversal than Uncharted. Definitely by the time Rise came out. The extra mechanics on offer in Tomb Raider just furthers that divide for me.
Not really true for me. I like both franchises about equally. Uncharted has the more likeable characters and interesting narrative. Tomb Raider has the deeper and more enjoyable gameplay.
No way would I put uncharted or tomb raider above each other... They're both freeking class!! 2 of the finest franchises in the gaming world, period!! 👌
The reboot of Tomb Raider started out pretty good. An unseen enemy, Lara being emotional of killing an animal, shivering, and need of hunger. Then after that amazing intro, it devolves into an Uncharted Clone which was utterly lame. How I wished it would of continue from that amazing intro.
Your attitude won’t fix your poorly thought out knee jerk comment next gen.
Broken PBR pipeline? Lol There's nothing wrong with the physically based rendering in the newer Tomb Raider games. They've all been extremely impressive looking games. And by game standards the writing isn't bad. It isn't the best writing I've seen in a game, but it's better than average. The gameplay and presentation are top notch though.
A quiet PS5 with better cooling system is what I want
Agreed. I can only imagine what Sony’s 1st party Studios will achieve with PS5.
Next gen consoles will be using new Zen based processors, Jaguar cores have been massively under powered compared to Intel CPUs in PC for years. They might be quieter but i wouldn't expect by that much, but you have to remember that consoles usually have a small form factor, so cooling is limited to the size of the device as well. Speaking of PC stuff Nvidia can get stuffed this gen i think, not paying a tad over a grand £ for a 2080Ti just for some fancy ray tracing stuff which won't be used properly for another couple of years.
I want to see what AMD do in response to the 2080Ti. This is their chance to shine. They could leave out Ray tracing and up the raw power. This could benefit consoles a lot.
My PS4 is near silent. I suppose it depends on environmental factors (room size, furniture, temperature, humidity and airflow etc).
I was talking about the PS4 Pro when playing games like God of War or Spider-man in 4K. After a few months most PS4 Pro's fans start to get really loud
Better Ui. Especially on PS4. I like the PS3 menu so much better. The PS4 ui is slow. Too damn slow. Like make sure you pack enough ram or allocate enough ram to system menu. Sharing and sending messages drag forever.
Ps4 ui is a million times more snappier than the ps3 but I agree I loved the xmb look of the 3 Navigation of ps store though is so much quicker on a ps4 I recently replayed red dead on the ps3 and honestly the loading of trophy data on the ps3 was excruciatingly slow it took 10 minutes to open especially if you have been a plus member since ps3 and play lots of games
Eidos Montreal has never done a Tomb Raider game until now.. Let’s see how good it performs and then talk.
Couldn't care less for graphic improvements. Give us better gameplay experiences please.
Agreed, the last time that I can remember a gameplay revolution was during the PS 1 and PS2 era. After that the gameplay has been pretty much the same.
I love my ps4 pro but i'm ready to move on to PS5 i'll still play my pro now i'm ready to move on to PS5 in 2020
1.) Faster cpu... perhaps 8-cores running at 3.5ghz minimum at least. 2.) 2 HDD's : HDD 1: 256GB (that houses the OS) and remaining space to install a game or 2 on it. HDD 2: 2TB 3.) gpu that can handle 1440/Ultra/120fps and 4K/Ultra/60fps without issue... i think this would have to be a bear minimum IF these new boxes are releasing in 2020-2021 or so.
I'm stoked for 8K pseudo-rendering
Newer Consoles need much more powerful CPU'S. 8tflops is enough for GPU side. 12gb ram is plenty.
Was going to put down a comment, but this sums it up. If console gaming is going to be taken seriously they need to catch up with a better CPU. GPUs don't run games, the CPU does. Low framerate targets is due to lacking CPU speed and cores.
The PC already offers what this game developer wants. I still think that Sony will improve PS Now and call it a day.
