Well that is super fucking disappointing news.

It's like Bethesda don't want us to enjoy this game fully one way or the other on xbox it's 30 fps and on pc they have partnered with the much inferior amd and there upscaling technology, bit of bummer there no ray tracing either on the pc side.

No dlss support at all or frame generation, what a terrible call.

This was the game I was most looking forward to playing on my new pc, thanks for nothing amd with your bullshit partnership rules.

Fsr will be there...while not as good as dlss 3 it's still a decent option as long as it's 2.0 or higher. Also amd currently has the better gaming cpu with the x3d chips. Maybe ur talking about nvidia and even then unless u have a 4090 amd has the equivalent to nivida in performance.

JEECE360d ago (Edited 360d ago )

The problem is that they are declining to support both technologies (FSR and DLSS) simply because the company with the inferior system paid them to not support the superior tech. I'm glad FSR exists; it's great for non-RTX cards, consoles, and Steam Deck, but I don't want its existence to preclude my use of DLSS. Very disappointing. Here's hoping someone gets a DLSS mod going pretty quickly.

JEECE360d ago (Edited 360d ago )

Yeah this is massively disappointing. DLSS is such a good technology, unlike most gimmicks companies try to push. I understand FSR is available to a wider range of GPUs, but the game could have supported both technologies. It's frustrating to see Bethesda choose to exclude one tech and prevent a group of gamers from having the best experience simply because a company with inferior tech paid them off.

I guess mods may eventually fix this though.

Goosejuice360d ago (Edited 360d ago )

That's understandable from a dlss stand point, and I agree it should have both techs to use. With that said...the modding community for Bethesda games is some if not the best. Dlss will be added by modders I'm guessing within first week or 2 and at same time fixing all the bugs the game ships with.

dumahim360d ago

Funny. DF was just talking about this on their direct yesterday.

iNcRiMiNaTi360d ago

There's a chance that it might still have DLSS. Forspoken, RE4 and The last of us are 3 games I can think of off the top of my head that were AMD sponsored but still had DLSS as well. Don't think it'll have frame gen though which sucks because I wanted to try it out on this game

Sonic1881360d ago

What a dumb move. Is this the first time AMD has done this 🤔

Flawlessmic360d ago

i only just started gaming on pc, but after reading some other new outlets about this it is a practice AMD has been doing with all there sponsored titles so no its not the firs time

Sonic1881360d ago

When you said "No dlss support" I cringe 😬 HARD. I'm very upset about this news.

Well that sucks. No DLSS then. Lamé.

Good-Smurf360d ago

So no DLSS on my Nvidia setup then?
Lame.

Sonic1881360d ago

You gotta be kidding me. I am disappointed in this news. I have an intel CPU and Nvidia RTX 4090

Fishy Fingers360d ago

LOL

I wouldnt usually entertain it but based on your comment history with it's total lack of any interest/entusiasm for anything that isnt a PS5 I find that highly unlikely.

Sonic1881360d ago (Edited 360d ago )

Maybe you should keep digging in my comment history. I've mention I'm a PC gamer first before a console owner plenty of times. You just assume when you don't $hit about me 😂 My favorite game is the Witcher series and that wasn't even on consoles the first time it came out

Fishy Fingers360d ago (Edited 360d ago )

Which account did you mention that on? Its hard to keep track.

Sonic1881360d ago (Edited 360d ago )

Whatever floats your boat 😂

LordoftheCritics360d ago

This is worse than the 30fps news.

Sonic1881360d ago

It's hard to believe. This is a first

Microsoft's Xbox gaming handheld will fail unless someone else makes it

Despite Microsoft's experience in hardware manufacturing, I don't trust it not to fumble its first gaming handheld device which may eventually lead to a successor not getting released.

Unless it has some fature that really makes it standout I don't think someone who wants a handheld will pick it when the Switch 2 is just around the corner and the Steam Deck offers a huge library with much better prices worldwide

OtterX20h ago(Edited 20h ago)

Especially since the existing PC handhelds (Steam Deck, ROG Ally, etc) can already run Gamepass. I don't have a Steam Deck yet, but I did see Forza Horizon 5 already running pretty well on it natively, so I'd imagine most XBox exclusives on Steam would run pretty well too. The most Microsoft could do is try to brute force a more expensive, higher power handheld. I doubt it would do well if that were the case.

ABizzel117h ago

This has been my point. It’s too little too late, and there are too many options out now that can already do the same thing with similar or better tech, in a similar price-range. A best case scenario for them is slightly above Steam-Deck performance at $100 less, but that’s not a huge selling point for anyone who has already jumped into the handheld PC market, and people still on the fence. Or go the other route of as cheap as possible but making it a streaming only device around $199.

It would do well and reach over 1m sold just because of the Xbox branding, but their consoles are already selling less and less (by the looks of it), so I don’t see a handheld being this great savior for them.

They simply need to rebrand one of the Surface tablets into the device with dedicated controls and more gaming focused, and call it a day instead of heavily investing in a handheld

VariantAEC13h ago

I'm guessing Xbox Wireless will be a streaming system like PS Portal. And yes I fully expect their portable Xbox to be given a really stupid name like "Wireless." Maybe even a dumber name like the Xbox Series W.

Jingsing22h ago

Doesn't make much sense to have a handheld that is locked down to the Xbox ecosystem when the PC handheld can run everything. I'm sure the same people that bought the Xbox fridge will give Microsoft their free money though.

...and not name it xbox
