Also…

“PS5 pushes ~110% more pixels compared to XSX in quality mode and ~55% more pixels in performance mode currently.“

darthv72290d ago

A patch should fix all that. It did for Series consoles.

Sciurus_vulgaris290d ago

The game’s overall performance and visual quality is better on series X according to the presented analysis. The higher resolution on the PS5 isn’t benefiting the game’s performance.

just_looken289d ago

Wait wait so a game that was designed around direct x and a windows operating system perform better on a console with a windows os/direct x than a system unix system with its own internal game api so shocking i tell yeah /s

The Dude Bros. Booty holes clinch when anyone mentions this. You gotta keep this down.

Wintersun616289d ago

You don't need to mention it's released on PS4 Pro... Otherwise should also add PS4 Slim.

Abear21289d ago

I expect Microsoft exclusives to PlayStation will be made with about the same quality and love as PlayStation releases get on PC.

Charlieboy333289d ago (Edited 289d ago )

It has come.....and it shall go. Like the fart in the wind it is to us, the blessed Playstation Elite.

P_Bomb289d ago

I’m still shocked @ that $79.99 CAD price tag.

High On Life PS5 and Xbox Series limited print physical editions announced

Squanch Games will open pre-orders for physical standard and Collector’s editions of High On Life for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series on February 27 via Limited Run Games and IGN Store, the developer announced. Pre-orders will close on March 31.

I guess it's better than no physical at all. I was using LR when they first started. I have Oddworld New and Tasty, Octodad, Shadow Complex etc. I fell off at some point and just felt I couldn't continue so I stopped. I just would much rather be able to purchase these games off Amazon.

LoveSpuds94d ago

I used to give into fomo a lot in the early days but I am much more choosy these days. I did play this on Gamepass back in the day and had a good time with it, so I have pre-ordered a copy as I'd like to Plat this on my PS5.

jznrpg93d ago

These aren’t super limited prints so whoever preorders will get one.

BrainSyphoned94d ago

Does it come with the layer of dust this game deserves or do you have to work at it?

High On Life's DLC Hilariously Mocks God Of War Ragnarok's Puzzle Spoilers

The recently released High on Life DLC, High on Knife, takes a jab at God of War Ragnarok's puzzle-spoiling mechanic that irked many players.

ravens52232d ago

Lol. I always got em before he said anything anyway lol

Seth_hun232d ago

How? Because boy spoiling the puzzle before you even see it :D

MrNinosan232d ago

Same, wasn't there a setting for how quickly Atreus would spoil shit 😏

JEECE231d ago

Yeah I heard a lot about this before I played, and then it almost never affected me when I played the game (the few times it did were with bird form Freya).

Honestly it makes me wonder if a bunch of people are just really terrible at puzzles and took forever to do them and got hints. It's either that or they patched the game to slow down the hints (I played about 5 months after launch).

H9232d ago

Couldn't get more accurate tho

GoodGuy09232d ago

I like GOW puzzles but honestly I felt there was way too much in Ragnarok.

LoveSpuds232d ago

Perhaps another dev will include content in their game mocking devs who devalue their work by giving their games away on streaming services and then expecting to be able to charge full price for it a year later?

PhillyDonJawn232d ago

That doesn't devalue their work. They get paid regardless. How you wanna spend to play is up to the consumer

LoveSpuds232d ago (Edited 232d ago )

Getting paid my MS still devalued their work squire. Rightly or wrongly, when they announced the PS5 version of the game, I didn't give two hoots. It was an old game by the time it came, all the buzz had gone and I knew it was free elsewhere; there was no chance I was paying full price for that
now old game, it wasn't worth it in my view.

Even in articles that have absolutely nothing to do with GamePass, someone will inevitably bring it up.
