New information regarding the PS5's specs of Resident Evil Village just came to light. The game will support ray tracing at dynamic 4K.
Really looking forward to this release. Like to see actual gameplay as dynamic 4K doesnt really mean anything from a high level, in my opinion.
doesn't mean anything why comment on it?
Maybe because it's a comments section? This is one of my most anticipated games - now gimme that PSVR confirmation, even if it's only for the next revision of the headset!
@SullysCigar - I mean I wouldn't expect a next gen headset until early 2022 realistically. I don't see there being any VR confirmation (at least console wise). Sucks, but nature of the beast.
All I care about is frame rate. I really don't give a damn about ray tracing.
Same. I turn it on to see what it looks like on the PC games I have but once I look I turn it off again and that's what I'm going to be doing when I get Miles Morales.
It’s baffling to see Assassin's Creed go to 60fps while Resident Evil drop to 30fps. Capcom better give us an option to disable this Ray Tracing crap and go back to 60fps.
Why? Don't you want both? Wouldn't that make it the best possible it can look?
I recommend Pong. Runs super smooth. No raytracing.
I mean Ray Tracing, higher res, etc are sort of reasons we are pushing for next gen. 60fps is nice and all, but I want some new features.
Thesoftware370, Sure. Why not? But if I have to drop some frames to have light bounce around realistically? Never. I really don't care much about graphical settings or fancy effects. You can bet I'm going all in on Demon's Souls at 60fps because that directly impacts how I experience gameplay. Neonridr, Good thing ray tracing is not the only new feature of next generation then. People make the case for ray tracing as a means of immersion... and I don't doubt that. But there are other ways to experience immersion that are more impactful in my opinion: the Dualsense haptics, the tempest engine, the eventual coming of PSVR2, and better frame rates are all great features to immerse yourself in a game, and the best part is that these are hardware features that have (or will have in the case of PSVR2) dedicated resources to their implementation though frame rate will largely depend on whether a game has options for that. The absence of some lighting isn't going to ruin that for me.
Everyone commenting on your common wants something different. One person says he only wants FPS, another wants ray tracing. I say, we want great looking games, now how they achieve it is not my concern.
I'm not going to indulge in resolution wars shenanigans. I will, however say, that I'm very excited that the developers are utilising the new features, such as super fast loading times, 3D audio and haptic trigger feedback. The addition of 4k with ray tracing into the mix makes me a happy chappy.
I can't wait to experience the DualSense features, those may be the most next-gen part of the PS5 for me.
I'm also really looking forward to trying the new Dualsense features. On top of this, I raided the ole piggy bank for the 3d Pulse headset & I'm eagerly anticipating seeing how the developers scare me half to death, hearing monsters creeping up on me from all directions. Yikes!
Can you imagine if they lock the trigger when you're trying to open a door while that werewolf is chasing you? I'm certainly not ready for that, However, I'm still getting because I'm a huge fan of the resident evil series.
I hope we see most games have the option between no RT 60fps and with RT 30fps in whatever 4K resolution that will be. Gamers most likely care more for a higher framerate than a light version of ray tracing.
Depends on the game imo. A creepy horror game doesn’t need 120fps for example, ray tracing can add to the atmosphere. FPS, racegames and alike are better with higher framerates indeed.
Personally, I'm stoked that devs are utilizing dynamic resolution more to keep games at solid frames! Plus, all of the other QoL features Sony is implementing has me stoked for the future of gaming
Dynamic 4K with RT @ 30fps right? Will there be a 60fps mode without RT? . Edit: Is there an 1080p PS4 version?
Last time I heard, the current gen version of Resident Evil Village was rumored to be cancelled.
It will be 60fps by default, doubt there will be 30fps at all, the engine is designed to run at 60+
4K + RT + 60fps? Delusional, much?
DMC V SE has a 30 fps mode, I believe. Same engine.
This is nice and all, but the only information I'm interested in for this game is when it is expected to be released.
good news that it has ray tracing games without ray tracing are old gen games
I can't even
@lifeisgamesok Don't even.
Wondering why so many are obsessed with graphics on the PS5 when its never been its biggest factor previous generations and nobody cares at all about Nintendo's graphics ? All's you hear with every game now is what resolution it is and if it has Ray tracing. Im starting to get over it already, I just want good games, thats all.
Because Nintendo isn't competing with MS and Sony, they are targeting other demographics. To be fair, it's kind of underwhelming if this game runs upscaled 4k at 30 fps.
There is more to games then just graphics, resolution and ray tracing, too many people are obsessed about Ray tracing now. So your a stats whore ? Why dont you just wait until you see the game, before you juudge it by its numbers?
New engines next gen will be right back to 30fps. I’m not sure why anyone thinks all next gen games will be 60fps. Developers will push the consoles limits once again and 30fps will continue to be a thing.
Shane, Well said. All of a sudden new next gen graphical features dont matter, its all about a controller with feed back and faster load times,smh. @Aussie, the beginning of last gen, graphics in fact was a huge deal for Sony. You dont recall all the Sony's 1080p vs Xbox one 900p ?
How is it underwhelming if it runs upscaled 4k? Have you seen what DLSS is capable of? It upscales resolution beyond what a native 4k signal is even capable of.
^ @thesoftware730, because the difference back then was noticeable by the human eye. These days, we need Digital Foundry to use software or zoom 400% to detect differences. Resolution is experiencing diminishing returns at this point, which is why we need to focus on other things to bring the medium forwards, like quality of life (instant/faster loading, enhanced UX/UI) and immersion (haptics, adaptive triggers, 3D sound, VR).
The software I'm really exited about that. More so than resolution. I'm not into the console war. I think MS was really lazy with their new controller. They just copied Sony's share button. However in this particular topic, I can't help to feel underwhelmed IF the game runs upscaled 4k at 30 fps. If it's 60 then Im fine with it.
@thesoftware All of a sudden graphical features do not matter... 1. It is resolution. Sony has had the best graphical features on consoles since the ps2 2. Where did all those comparison sites and articles go this gen? 🤔 Lens of truth etc.. every site would cover said differences... So with all your where did it go... ask Microsoft’s bankroll supporting those that cared when applicable. Funny how the drama articles disappear and then you act like Sony fans are the ones that shut up about it😂😂😂& #128514;
Because all fanboys of Xbox and Ps5 have right now really is a childish concept of debating if their version of multiplats will be superior to the other consoles “omg your version only does dynamic 4K and mine is native!” Once the games start coming out and people can actually judge the quality of the library...this stuff kinda goes away
The Sony Only was proud PS4 did 1080p and blast the Xbots for 720 - 900p last gen but this gen 4K native vs Dynamic 4K and it's ok 👌
@ Minute Man. You can't notice the difference between Dynamic 4k and Native. You could EASILY notice the difference between 1080p and 720. Everyone knows that. Stop trying to start shit
@minute man The issue with the Xbox one’s 720p -900p games was not only was the difference much more noticeable but the Xbox one was more expensive than the PS4 desire being weaker. THAT’s why it got shitted on.
Because it's new tech. People are excited about the possibilities. Graphics aren't separate from the experience. More sophisticated rendering techniques will allow for more dynamic and immersive worlds. Game creators will be able to tell their stories more effectively. Higher framerates will improve motion clarity and make the games more responsive. Some aspects are obviously silly, like the continued forcus on native pixelcount/frame when we've entered the age of upsampling technologies and variable rate shading, but that's mostly due to the inertia of the general consumer, still clinging to datasheet numbers that are losing their relevance.
So why dont people care about graphics when Nintendo releases a new console ?
@Aussieguy because Nintendo does not market power and Microsoft and Sony do. Right now Microsoft is actively trying to differentiate the Xbox by saying it is the “worlds most powerful console.” When seeing such slogans, it shouldn’t be surprising that some gamers will be interested in what the consoles are capable of.
Aussieguy Most people that game on consoles don't as most of them are what we colloquially call "casuals" and that goes for Nintendo consoles as well as Playstation and Xbox consoles as evidenced by PS4 vs PS4 Pro and X1 vs X1X sales. Graphics never were a key deciding factor for the vast majority of people that buy consoles regardless of what people that come to websites like this say.
sure but why are we upgrading if it's just more of the same?
Sony already has a slew of good games, they always bring games to the table, it's expected, Ray Tracing is the new hotness, not that I think we'll have good implementation of Ray Tracing for another 2 or 3 GPU generations, or at least the next console generation. I still enjoy my Switch and it's games, but Ray Tracing tech is exciting since real time Ray Tracing has only become possible in recent years.
what is up with these ray tracing articles, I don't understand how it will make a game better. we need better design/AI/creativity rather few more pixels in my humble opinion
It gaming news. Some people want to know. If you don’t that’s fine.
You should get used to it. We will see them a lot this gen.
Think of how RT can change the atmosphere of the game. Especially with horror games. Imagine walking down a corridor in Resident Evil and at the end of the corridor there is a mirror and suddenly you see a monster appear in the reflection of the mirror and it's just running after you. 😳 It's just my opinion but thats definitely a game changer to me. AI comes from the CPU which are more than capable of making good AI and doesn't require GPU performance but thats also up to the developer and their AI building skills.
Couldn't agree more. Better graphics are a given with better hardware so I don't really consider them a generational leap and that is why the current gen to me was nothing more than an extension of the 7th gen.
Your opinion is worth zero to anyone.
I think the reason we don't see better AI is because it shits off the player, they tested it in Uncharted I believe but went back to dumb AI. Recently I've been playing Fear and I have to say, that AI is impressive, sometimes it does things I don't expect from a shooting game.
dynamic 4K is absolutely ok, if it doesn go as low as 1080p is :-)
Gears 5 on XSX reference? :D
Dualsense support in a Resi game, my heart is not ready at alllllllllllllllllllllll
I'm guessing it's native 4k 60fps w/ ray tracing on the XSX then.
Pffft. 8k 120fps. What's wrong with you??
Dynamic 4K might be noticeable if you have a large 4K TV (70'') and sit a bit too close to it. Otherwise I don't think many people would see when the resolution shifts on a 55'' or lower screen, sitting approx 2 metres away (if you sit closer then that then please consider your eyes). Personally I think this is a fine compromise if it keeps the frame rate stable and adds in RT.
People can tell on Youtube videos running @ 1080p posted by DF. 4K looks cleaner that Dynamic.
How can you see it's 4K dynamic or not if you're watching a Youtube video at 1080p? I think 'people' might be mistaken friend.
You can tell bro, stop lying to yourself. But if it makes you feel better sleeping at night more power to you. Enjoy that PS Pro 2, I'll wait til the mid-gen PS5 upgrade, that's like 3 years away
No they can't tell the difference. You are lying
When they do a 4 times Zoom sure. I can't even tell when it's native 4K on a 4k screen because of YouTube compression lol
