An encouraging read on how some in the dev community are taking full advantage of the PS4 Pro. Even mre encouraging was the 4K showcase of Mass Effect Andromenda, as well as Horizon Zero Dawn running on PS4 Pro via a 4K stream on my 55' 4K Sony Bravia display. I was truly blown away at the vibrant details and crazy lighting effects. Just fantastic! 30 frames at that resolution would be more than satisfying. I'm not going to torture myself and expect the PS4 Pro to deliver 4K/60 frames, as there are no high-end PC rigs on the market today that can smoothly pull that off. However, I do expect PS4 Pro all games which are running at 1080p to offer a smooth 60 frames. There should be no excuses there, fingers crossed!

the Amazing and underestimated thing about the Andromenda demo is that it had impressive clarity and depth despite being set in darkness.

As someone who doesn't have a 4KTV yet, did you believe that games like Horizon were not native 4K?

Just a question of curiosity.

I'm also hoping intently for a 1080p/60fps standard, and would appreciate developers to provide scaling options like Nixxes has with Rise of the Tomb Raider. This is how developers need to approach the PS4 Pro.

I pre ordered ps4 pro as soon as it was available. Like you I don't have a 4k tv and have no plans to get one. I liked what CD said about tombraider and how you could choose to output 1080p and they are "throwing every visual enhancement at it the PS4 pro can handle"

If all devs do this I'll be really happy.

When the rumours of upgraded consoles started making the rounds I hoped back then that the focus would be on 1080p and the highest visual fidelity

Daaaaaamn, you have 55 feet 4K TV? You'll need 20K or something.

Hidetaka Miyazaki 'knows for a fact' other FromSoftware devs want a Bloodborne PC port

Keep that hope alive, PC gamers.

Honestly a bloodborned PS5 Remaster and PC Port would have gone really well especially for this dry spell we seem to be in.

got_dam1d 10h ago

I think he is saying only bloodborne can make him wet.

Skuletor1d 4h ago

They're probably referring to first party games.

Poor him. I have too much to play and it's not even funny.

VincentVanBro1d 9h ago

Bud were you here for 2023? We’re drowning mate, no dry spell in sight.

-Foxtrot1d 10h ago (Edited 1d 10h ago )

It’ll happen at the PS6 launch in my opinion

We might get a PS6 Remake for launch like they did with Demons Souls for the PS5. The PC port may follow who knows.

Inverno1d 10h ago

I just wanna be walking around with my Deck playing Bloodborne like a absolute nerd on full blast so people can hear the shrieks.

"But there are millions of PC gamers out there still holding onto hope"

Game gets announced...and the complaints pile in to justify piracy. It's old so it should be 20 dollars, psn requirement means no buy but i will pirate, it's just a port they didn't even remake it and it doesn't have every graphics option ever so I'm getting the torrent.

Skuletor1d 4h ago

Even so, that shouldn't have prevented Sony from releasing a FPS/resolution patch or upgraded PS5 release by now.

VersusDMC1d 3h ago

Maybe the From Software engine is such a mess that it is not worth the cost or time for Sony. Bloodbourne is one of the lowest selling souls games.

And even with Elden Ring selling 20+ million they still haven't patched the PS5 version to play at 60fps. Only way to play elden ring on PS5 at 60fps is to play the PS4 version on PS5.

But maybe Bluepoint is working on a remake as that would be the only thing they could charge full price for and be worth the time and money.

Chard23h ago

Most FromSoftware fans would rather a port with the original art intact over a remake that messes with the assets and atmosphere

Elda1d 8h ago (Edited 1d 8h ago )

But instead Sony gives PS5/PC owners an option to buy a PS5/PC Until Dawn remaster/rework this year, something I highly doubt PS fans asked for. A Bloodborne PS5/PC remaster is highly anticipated among fans.
