Isn't that the point? For the current systems to be better than last gen?

The fact that this is even news is actually quite scary.


This is a big deal to them

Ooooooh shit I cant beleive it!!! Much faster than last gen console while it still hold same 10 years old graphics? Wii U pro

I would hope it would load faster, the switch uses cartridges lol.

The titles compared here are digital only.

Since it is digital only it shows that switch is just faster overall. The game is not 10 years old graphics as some retard suggests, it is a 2015 game and the switch version has double the resolution, better post processing effects and seems like if anti aliasing is too with other improvements. Also frame rate is better. So it is significant improvement for a game that is a port.

wow... had no idea they were getting that deep into acquisitions. Hopefully they crank out more new ideas on some old classics.

Still remember my old 14" TV with the Atari sticker I had on it, haha... The sticker came with Unreal Tournament 2004 and I just had to slap that bad boy on my enormous beast of a display.

I would like to see Atari getting back into the gaming scene though. We could use some old blood stepping back into the ring these days.

But this "Atari" is just a holdings company that bought the Atari name many years ago. They have no relation to the original company.

the Atari of old is long gone. This new Atari is looking to resurrect the image while also embracing modern / retro vibes.

The current official price for the Series S in Brazil is R$3,599. During the last Black Friday, many retailers like Amazon and a local one called Kabum sold the PS5 Disc for R$3,440. The latter reported that they sold the equivalent of the height of 10 Eiffel Tower of PS5 consoles on Black Friday which people are speculating is somewhere between 3k - 7k per tower or 30k to 70k PS5 sold by one single retailer during the sale period.

Meanwhile no news about sales of the Xbox Series X or S. The latter did get into a sale as well, but the sales price was still 25% higher than the price that the console was commonly found before the price hike. Whereas the Series X did not get any significant deals during the period.

Before the price hike and the sales, the PS5 had 18% whereas the Xbox Series had 14% of the Brazilian gaming market (PGB report 2023). But I'm curious to see how the numbers will be for the 2024 report.

Frankly I wouldn't want to touch the Brazilian market myself. Female players have been murdered because of gaming over there. The country has a huge issue with handling masculinity online way more so than anywhere else.

I'd gtfo of any association with that sorta terrorism.
