The PS4.5 is just a PS4 hardware refresh - similar to what we see every generation.
It'll have zero impact on gaming.
It will likely add an updated BD drive and be geared toward allowing playback of 4k video content. At best.
Maybe, just maybe it will add a hardware scaler to upscale current gaming content to 4k (not the same as allowing native 4k) - but I think that's unlikely.
Releasing a 'VR focused' PS4 wo...
I'm bored of the US settings. Move it somewhere else.
Now you mention it, I recall at the end of the intro it does mention something about Europe.
Yeah, I guess a new area would have been nicer - but if I hadn't seen this article I wouldn't have thought I was playing the same map as FC4.
Ah well. No big deal. The map still feels different to me and the foliage and other geographical changes make it look different too.
I think it's cool they based the game on the same area and I don't think it's laziness at all.
The intro that counts down from modern day to 10,000BC is a big hint that this is the same place set in a different time.
I'm really enjoying the game. It's definitely Far Cry, but it feels a bit different.
No one is saying it's the best thing ever. Just that it is underrated.
I preferred the hand to hand combat in Mad Max over Batman. The car combat gets better after a few upgrades. I guess the devs had to make the initial cars handle like boats otherwise the upgrades would not have been significant enough.
I liked the story. It was every bit as interesting as the recent movie reboot. Which is to say that it was simple, stupid fun.
I did a 40 episode playthrough on YouTube and loved almost every minute.
I think a lot of reviewers saw it was open world and just gave it a generic score without bothering to immerse themselves in it.
The dynamic between Chum and Max is great. There are a few stand-out moments in the story. The combat is never less than ridiculously satisfying. Sure some of the things were tedious if you wanted to 100% the game (like minesweeping), but overall it was a blast.
If VR hits any two of those three, then it'll be OK. I have some doubts it will do that, but we shall see, and I hope to be proved wrong.
I don't think either console had a particularly good year for exclusives.
Bloodborne and Until Dawn were good, and so were Rare Replay and Rise of the Tomb Raider, but I played on my WiiU and PC more than XB1 and PS4.
You know what the best thing to do is... Sit back, relax, and just wait for the game to launch.
All this speculation, doom-mongering and hyperbole does no good. It changes nothing.
If the game launches and it's a masterpiece - awesome, SquareEnix will get my money. If it's trash then I'll vote with my wallet, and the community can go back to asking for a proper FFVII remake for the next 20 years.

Doesn't remove them from the front page but does register a vote for them... No sure what, if anything, N4G does with the negative votes tho!
Just when people started to think SquareEnix had turned a corner!
We must have all been crazy to think that SE would actually give the fans what they wanted... A Remaster of FFVII.
Now they are confusing things by saying there will be 'Episodes', and each will give a unique experience.
It does not bode well...
And still no price...
We all know the saturation point will only come when EA think they have bled every last drop of money from gamers wallets.
I haven't had chance to play much yet (only around 40mins), but on my PC it seems to OK, hovering around 60 with dips into the high 50's at 1080p.
My rig is...
Asus Strix GTX980
Core i7 4770K @ 4.2GHz
I prefer lower res and higher details. I've only had a quick look at the settings, but all are set to max (Very High), except for LOD which is High.
Once the action ramps up I could see drops into the...
Guess I should have put the /s tag on! :)
Thought it would be more obvious as Fallout 4 has been released.
WHAT!? Fallout 4 doesn't have MP??????? That's it! Pre-order cancelled.
Disgusting Bethesda, just disgusting.
This was my most anticipated game on the original XBox. Such a shame it was canned.
I hope WiLD is kinda the spiritual successor.
I think this game is much more in the vein of Minecraft. People set their own objectives and goals. And if they see some cool and mysterious stuff as they fly / walk around that will add to the immersion.
I can understand people wanting more of a narrative and it wouldn't surprise me if there are some things in the game that drive players to discover more about the game universe (like monoliths from 2001: A Space Odyssey)
As excited as I am for this game I am also keeping my expectations grounded. It's impossible to tell if it has enough gameplay to keep me engaged long term.
There are plenty of movies that have slightly different cuts for different markets. And that often means stuff is removed.
There are tonnes of anime where changes are made to the scripts when brought over to the West so that they are a better cultural fit.
No one wails and gnashes their teeth for the most part.
And yet somehow when it comes to games it's a case of 'Oh won't you think of the poor tor...
