Nice so it can be done with old PS4 games.

It took 6 months so PS5 can run War Zone as is running on SX.

northpaws828d ago

Even if it takes one day longer you would have complained. Just go back to your SX, don't even know why you care how well a PS5 runs at all.

Your fan boy immaturity is showing. We love all Consoles. But the critique is honest. Just like xbox with no exclusive games out. Both have strengths and weaknesses. Stop being a brat.

alb1899828d ago

Sorry I was wrong, it took 7 months. See, I fix it.

Exactly. Ps5 needs true auto hdr and more enhancements to old games.

"We love all Consoles."

We? You guys working together or something?

RosweeSon828d ago

Well one console was stuck in the past 😑🤷🏻‍♂️ 🤣

Activision... 6 months... curious period of time. Not 4, 5, 3 or 7, 8... but 6. Like it is used with temporal exclusivities.

Dirt 5?

Devil May Cry 5? (oh, wait...)

Nioh 2?

I mean, what are people smoking now a days? There's handfull of 120hz games for PS5 already. This is just more goodiness in the bag.

Those are PS5 games. You can't run the PS4 version of any of those in 120FPS, you need to download the PS5 version. Here, it's the "original" PS4 version. That's the difference.

But for some reason you need HDMI 2.1 for the PS4 BC version, versus the games you listed can run off HDMI 2.0 at 1080P.

Either way this is good news because it might mean that developers will no longer need to make a native port if they can take advantage with the original software.

Guyfamily999828d ago

All the games you mentioned are PS5 titles. Modern Warfare and Warzone never got native PS5 releases, so you play the PS4 Pro version on your PS5. The PS4/Pro SDK never supported 120hz output, so presumably something has changed or Activision has found a way around it. This is the reason that rocket league and Overwatch support 120fps modes on Series X but not PS5. Hopefully this piece of news is an indication that a few more PS4 titles will get support, but I'm not optimistic.

You need to reread.

BlaqMagiq1828d ago

So this disproves the claim that PS4 games need a native PS5 version to be 120fps. Good. Hope to see more.

NoFanBoy828d ago

So it won't run at a locked 120 fps and as there is still not VRR support on PS5 it won't be super smooth and you need HDMI 2.1 . FFS Sony why , Playstation, play has limits. And how long do we have to wait for 60fps patched for Horizon , Bloodborn and Uncharted 4.

@NoFanBoy Sony are just sat there laughing at you squirming desperately to get your extra FPS, whilst their finger is hovering over the add FPS button.

VRR support will be added when it's ready.

Pretty sure you need HDMI 2.1 on XSX to do 120hz also. Only way around this would be to lower resolution, depending on the capabilities of your TV/monitor.
