How do PC players manage when other people have different hardware?
@Neonridr "devs may decide that they don't want to waste their time making two versions." It isn't two versions of the same game. Think of it like a PC game where there are graphics settings depending on how powerful your system is. That's all this is, except instead of near infinite combinations of PC hardware, there's only two. They'll, ideally, build the game for base mode. If it runs on Neo mode, they c...
"Seriously, how will devs plan for games accordingly" Develop game for base mode. Turn up the framerate, resolution, or other items for Neo mode. Does it run? Ship.
Reading the GiantBomb article, I'm very pleased with what I'm reading and I'm ready to order. Specifically about this: "Games running in NEO mode will be able to use the hardware upgrades (and an additional 512 MiB in the memory budget) to offer increased and more stable frame rate and higher visual fidelity, at least when those games run at 1080p on HDTVs. The NEO will also support 4K image output, but games themselves are not required to be...
So now we know the upgrades (but no word on BD drive?), I wonder what it will mean for performance. I don't care about 4K, but if I can get 1080p/60 and better textures and other goodies, I'm all in.
As many have said, HDMI 1.4 can do 4k at 30fps. AFAIK, no apps support 4k on PS4, but the PS4 is capable of it.
PS4 can already do 4k video. It might include a UHD Blu-ray drive, but it doesn't need a GPU upgrade for that. There is certainly a gaming aspect to this upgrade.
@OoglyBoogly Plus, the console can be more efficient and I don't think it would even need to be native 4k. It could do something in between and then upscale. I just hope if it is for 4k gaming, they'll have the ability to keep it 1080p and up the framerate for those that don't care about 4k.
Aisha Tyler is in playboy? Oh, wait...
Say that to Duke Nukem Forever.
Yep, and the intended article was reposted. http://n4g.com/news/1884469...
Most of the time, yes, but some games will force a full install before you can play. But yeah, probably 45 minutes then. I think, at least early on, Xbox One wouldn't download update files until the game was done installing. At least on PS4, after a minute or two you can launch the game and it will still start the download and be ready to install once the full game is done installing.
I pretty much agree too. I haven't seen the latest round of media yet, but prior to that, I probably used the same line of "I just don't see the fun."
Maybe the power of the cloud will finish development.
I don't think they would consider it a pretty day.
Is the first season done for car packs or are they skipping this month because of the Porsche pack?
Don't bother with the site. Just watch the youtube video.
Yep. A well executed story is not buried in encyclopedia entries.
@r3f1cul positive. Check anywhere for the price and it's $15 for all three episodes. Steam actually has a discount right now.
