i'm guessing that anything with "project" in front of its name is a tech demo that will never be released as a game

xp strong disagree, this is one of the most impressive console launch/line ups I've ever seen

the one where you're the cat in robot blade runner world? the avatar/spirited away looking one... the lbw4 trailer with the go team music!

lumen (esby), Thursday, 11 June 2020 20:52 (five months ago) link

oh! the trailer had a dark twist ending...

lumen (esby), Thursday, 11 June 2020 20:53 (five months ago) link

PS.. is it 5? I think we're on 5 now. PS5

OMG HZD2!!!

Shade Kool-Aid (Leee), Thursday, 11 June 2020 21:10 (five months ago) link

we knew that was coming tho

ciderpress, Thursday, 11 June 2020 21:12 (five months ago) link

I mean yes, I knew they had a sequel planned, but I did not expect it to be part of the presentation and be a launch title.

Shade Kool-Aid (Leee), Thursday, 11 June 2020 21:19 (five months ago) link

i doubt its a launch title unless they announced it as such and i missed it

ciderpress, Thursday, 11 June 2020 21:24 (five months ago) link

2021 at earliest I'd think.

The one game (Pragmata?) had a 2022 date

groovypanda, Thursday, 11 June 2020 21:26 (five months ago) link

"talkin bout Bugsnax!"

Ste, Thursday, 11 June 2020 21:44 (five months ago) link

Was that the Morty voice actor?

Nhex, Thursday, 11 June 2020 22:19 (five months ago) link

Doesn't sound like him to me. Was that the Yakko voice actor in the Hitman III trailer?

wasdnous (abanana), Friday, 12 June 2020 00:24 (five months ago) link

That Bugsnax song is a jam

jmm, Friday, 12 June 2020 01:38 (five months ago) link

I love it when songs sound like they're in another language but it turns out to be english.

wasdnous (abanana), Friday, 12 June 2020 02:23 (five months ago) link

Unless they announce some kinda Game Pass equivalent I'm not buying a new system for a good long while

This was inevitable. Probably won't be available for launch (DLC isn't even completely out yet) but I'm sure when it arrives in a "Bureau Director's Edition" of some sort it'll have the DLC and look gobstobbingly amazing with ray-tracing and hopefully a smoother frame rate.

Nhex, Saturday, 13 June 2020 02:07 (five months ago) link

Control is one of a very few acclaimed PS4 games I want to play but haven't bought to add to my vast backlog just yet, not least because I've heard questionable things about how it plays on non-pro PS4 (though of course other people say it's fine). But if it's being better optimized for PS5, and the changes/improvements/additions turn out to be significant, I guess that means it's going to have to wait a few years for me, unless there is a PS4 fire sale that drops it below, like, $10.

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 13 June 2020 13:14 (five months ago) link

can I not just buy a cheap digital copy of control... and it will play better on PS5?

||||||||, Saturday, 13 June 2020 19:42 (five months ago) link

they haven't given details, but the hope is that they'll actually bump up the graphics and such to use the power of the new consoles
i'm saying this is one of the remasters that will actually be worth supporting? i hope

three months pass...

digital foundry put up an article on backwards compatibility on the series x:

PS5 BC in boost mode should give similar results

chihuahuau, Monday, 28 September 2020 20:23 (two months ago) link

"Should" as in "they need to match it to stay competitive" or "is reasonably expected to"?

Kaliningrad Oberst (Leee), Monday, 28 September 2020 21:10 (two months ago) link

Reasonably expected. It feels like these new consoles are more massive spec bumps than architectural leaps

That said I'm a little jealous when I see PC footage of games like Avengers which don't even come close to a steady 30fps on the stock PS4. Slightly makes me want to upgrade. Or spend $1k+ and get a gaming/streaming PC. If I do upgrade to PS5, (to be charitable) unoptimized multi-platform games like Avengers and Control will be my first tests.

Nhex, Monday, 28 September 2020 21:36 (two months ago) link

i assume PS5 BC will just run the game with the PS4 Pro graphics/resolution settings unless the dev tests and patches in a new performance profile

ciderpress, Monday, 28 September 2020 21:38 (two months ago) link

> "Should" as in "they need to match it to stay competitive" or "is reasonably expected to"?

the latter, it's hardware compatiblity

> i assume PS5 BC will just run the game with the PS4 Pro graphics/resolution settings unless the dev tests and patches in a new performance profile

that's what the legacy modes are for and no patches should be needed there except for the rare pathological case

boost mode should work like series x: games with unlocked framerates run better, games with dynamic resolution spend more time in higher res or lock to the max, etc.
this is where issues are likely to appear and patches might be needed to fix problems, for example, some games like dark souls 2 tie game code to framerate so the 60fps ps4 port initially had a bug where weapon durability wore down 2x faster

chihuahuau, Monday, 28 September 2020 22:08 (two months ago) link

one month passes...

We can't believe we have to say this, but please do not blow vape smoke into your Xbox Series X.

Not hearing a no from Sony, though.
