    Looks interesting. But the decision to skip combat makes it a game I probably will forget about sooner then later.

    I like that about Minecraft. I can chose the "peaceful" option of different type of difficulties. Hopefully they see the feedback and will consider adding the option for those who want that.

  • PlayStation YouTube hosts Xbox One X Anthem footage with Photoshopped buttons

  • _LarZen_ 04/07/2017

    @jonbwfc It's fine that you don't care. The thing is. The world don't revolve around your opinions. Many do care and is why this case and others in the past have been of much debate. Reply 0
  • _LarZen_ 04/07/2017

    @jonbwfc It's still false advertising. And seeing how the media and gamers are reacting it's bad PR for both Sony and EA. And someone at Sony does care. As the video is now pulled entirely from PlayStation's YouTube channel. Reply +1
  • _LarZen_ 04/07/2017

    Seeing allot of people not understanding why there is so much noise around this. And compare it to what's often been done with both the PlayStation and Xbox in the past. But things have changed now with these new console iterations.

    Imagine if Nvida showcased their GPU lineup with a new big AAA game. Saying its running on a GTX970. While it was really running on a GTX1070.

    It's misleading. It's fals advertising. Its setting the expectations costumers gets too high and it's just not something you do without consequences.

    This time it's not Nvidia but Sony or EA that is the culprit. Because just as with the GTX970 and GTX1070. The jump in TFLOPs is almost as big with the PS4Pro and XBOX.

    Meaning in theory that Anthem will or should be several levels better on the XBOX.

    Seams EA or Sony have upladed a new video (according to comments) where they have manage to change the Xbox buttons better/completely.

    It's safe to say it's still the Xbox One X footage shown and not representing PS4Pro gameplay.

    Eurogamer will most likely conclude with the same shortly.

    @Turniplord I wrote 1440p because checkerboard don't go below 1800p. And why I also wrote dynamic resolution. It's possible the PS4Pro version will be 1800p checkerboard. If so it will or it should be a significant jump in graphic fidelity/performance on the Xbox One X even if its at 2160p checkerboard.

    Digital Foundry if I'm not mistaken have got it confirmed after they wrote their article that it is as they concluded runnning on the Xbox One X.

    Many suspected it was a verticle slice but as Digital Foundry found out there are allot of signs it was not the case with draw distance rendering in front of the character and texture assets loading in. And the fact that it was a 2160p checkerboard technique used. Something that would never be in a verticle slice.

  • _LarZen_ 03/07/2017

    @CrashOkami Digital Foundry has already confirmed the footage is running on a Xbox One X at 2160p using checkerboard.

    So the PS4Pro version will not be identical as far as resolution goes. Either that or they will have to dail down on the visuals. Textures etc.

    But most likely it will be 2160p checkerboard on XBOX and 1440p checkerboard or dynamic resolution on PS4Pro.

    Could also maybe be 1800p checkerboard and dailed down visuals.

    EDIT: If I were to guess based on hardware and earlier PS4Pro supported titles.

    It's like NVIDIA would showcase a game saying it's running on a GTX1070 (6.5 TFLOPs) when it was really running on a GTX1080 (8.9 TFLOPs) Reply +23
  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds players debate aim assist after dev mentions prospect of cross-platform play

  • _LarZen_ 30/06/2017

    @ISmoke Firstly. I'm no fanboy. I'm a multiplatform gamer. Or a gamer if you like.

    Secondly. I mentioned a high-end system price as it surely must sting after having all that sexy hardware and getting pwned by a gamer on a cheap $250 plastic box. And one that is using a inferior control system :D

    @ambershee "Gamepad players will have the advantage at longer ranges, where the aim assist kicks in"

    This is up to the developer. And I cant remember playing a big open world game with a controller where it "snaps" to targets at long distances in ages.

    Especially competitive games.

  • _LarZen_ 30/06/2017

    This just shows how ignorant and clueless the poster on Reddit is.

    Aim assist isn't just a easy mode that snaps to a target. Sure it can be but it can also be just a tiny tiny assistanse that help you as a thumb can in no way on the controllers available do the same precise movement as with a mouse.

    There is no way they would implement a heavy aim assist in this game. So if they do add it.

    Dont go crazy PC gamers if you are killed by a console player using a controller. He/she has to be damn good REGARDLESS of aim assist.

    EDIT: And to people disagreeing. Why? I'm just stating facts here. But facts can probably be hard to swallow if getting pwned by a console gamer on your $2500 high-end gaming PC.

    I'm new to Mario Kart. And its kinda driving me crazy. I can be way ahead of the others in the lead. And when we get close to the end they start sending out a shitload of stuff to stop me.

    And I cant do anything but hope to have the horn to stop them? I just have to watch the AI unload it's arsenal on me?

  • Assassin's Creed Origins on Xbox One X: can third parties hit 4K?

  • _LarZen_ 14/06/2017

    @Yoona Yes sorry. 1440p upscaled was what I meant. Yeah Horizon looks great at 2160p checkerboard. Even 1800p checkerboard looks good in my opinion.

    These "real 4K" evangelists need to calm down and see the big picture. Sure with extra power they will bump the resolution as high as they can. But there is allot of more stuff possible to add also that will boost the gameplay experience.

  • _LarZen_ 14/06/2017

    @TC0072 With one major difference. It's 2160p checkerboard on the XBO. Where it's most likely 1440p checkerboard on the PS4Pro. Reply 0

    I find the 1440p titles on PS4Pro to be underwhelming and not worth it. So I really hope the Pro will get better support when Scorpio is out. Reply -1
  • PS4 is three times more popular than Xbox One in Europe, Sony claims

  • _LarZen_ 06/06/2017

    @-Gemini44- This I agree on. A plus 1 for you sir. Reply 0
  • _LarZen_ 06/06/2017

    @-Gemini44- When everything works as it should it is basically as easy as turning on a PS4 or XBO.

    The difference comes when something does happen. And all PC gamers have encountered this many many times. Anyone denying that is either the luckiest PC gamer on the planet or a liar.

    So I perfectly understand those who just dont want to deal with it. It happened again to me yesterday. Somehow HDR was activated the second I booted up my PC on my 4K HDR TV setup.

    Something it shouldn't do. Only selected games should activate it. So then the hunt to find out what caused it started. Turned out the text scaling was somehow adjusted making it happen. That's 1h of gaming I instead used to figure out a problem.

    It's just one of many many different cases for many different people. And something all PC gamers have now and then.

    So let's not pretend it's all black and white shall we?

    I have a PS1,PS2,PS3,PS4,PSVR and PS4Pro. So you could say I'm a PlayStation fan :) And this news and what's going on over at Microsoft has me super excited for Xbox.

    Being the underdog makes companies push harder. And already Xbox is doing exciting things like backwards compatibility, play anywhere and game pass. And soon digital refund like Steam.

    And the upcoming Xbox Scorpio has a plethora of interesting features and design that's not been done before. I'm going to buy a Xbox Scorpio once it's out. And when I say this to my fellow PlayStation fans and especially the fanboys I get comments like "there is no games" and "the PS4 is selling better".

    As if I had stock shares in the company. Or that I just play some PlayStation exclusives. Ignoring the massive third-party library of games. Games that should in theory all be best on Scorpio in the time ahead.

    People think that PlayStation4 being three times more popular is a good thing. It's only good for Sony and it's fanboy army. Not for fans or gamers overall. Competition is good. And by the looks of things both Microsoft and Nintendo have polished their shoes and are ready to dance.

  • Prey finally gets proper PS4 Pro support

  • _LarZen_ 01/06/2017

    @Turniplord Well it's been advertised since day one as a 4K console. Or as of lately dynamic 4K as people called them out on the lack of real 4K games.

    It's also what developers have been focusing on since launch but is something that has just been getting worse and worse as time goes on.

    The resolution boosts are getting lower and the support is lacking just more and more.

    So I find it strange that especially DigtalFoundry was not all over Sony when Prey came out. I've been waiting for an article for a month now. Seams Bethesda beat them to it with yet a disponering PS4Pro supported title for 4K HDR owners.

    Hopefully Microsoft will try to work with developers to ensure that their upcoming Scorpio is getting big AAA titles to support the machine better then PS4Pro.

  • _LarZen_ 01/06/2017

    What I find surprising is why Eurogamer and especially DigitalFoundry have not made any article on why the game was advertised as a PS4Pro enhanced game when it clearly was not.

    One month later and it has received that enhancement that should have been there on day one as labeled on the game. That said it's a strange enhancement for a console witch main function is to increase resolution output as there is none.

    Knowing Rockstar there will probably be atleast 1 more delay :D So around september.. Meaning if there is a PC version in production it could be as long as 2019 before it launches.

    Kinda bummed out about that...hopefully PS4Pro and Scorpio will deliver some stunning visuals.

    Had an awesome time for a while with the first one on PS4 even with its shortcomings. Hopefully Destiny2 will rectify allot and build upon the things that worked so good in the first game.

    With it's co-op and raid features I can see this becoming huge on PC also and with the same if not more big and great communities. Hopefully I can get my friends that don't play on consoles to get onboard when the PC version launches:)

    @r4in If it was not for the 4K push then 1080p@60fps and some downsampling would probably we the way consoles would go.

    But with the TV industry pushing for 4K it will only be a dream. Well...unless you buy a PC that is.

  • _LarZen_ 04/05/2017

    @mostro I cant say I agree with your opinion about 1440p. It's an OK bump on a 4K TV. But 1800p and certainly 2160p is much much better.

    Hopefully there will be focus on real 4K or the highest possible checkerboard rendering on Scorpio.

    Microsoft are after all advertising it as a 4K console. Something Sony did a little while before taking a step back realizing people rightfully called them out on it seeing most game are not 4K.

    Exciting to see how this will all turn out. E3 cant come fast enough.

    Personally I found the demo highly disappointing. The graphics is really underwhelming for a AAA game of this caliber.

    Bad textures, lack of anti aliasing and art style really makes this one of the more disappointing games I've played in a while as far as visuals goes.

    But it don't end there. The demo has bad input lag on PlayStation making the game frustrating to unplayable for most. It also shows some bad game design with encounters with the mimick's and the music.

    Basically the music starts pumping as soon as a mimick comes out of hiding. Problem is you could have walked past it and stand in a completely different room wondering what the heck is going on as you walk around trying to find it so the insane music stops.

    And it's clearly not supporting the PS4Pro at all. Which just builds up on the lackluster impression of the game.

    It's a real shame as they deserve compliments for releasing a 1h demo in 2017. Who does that anymore? No one! That's who...

    It's going to be interesting to see if the game gets PS4Pro support and how it will improve the game. I'm most skeptical about the PC version to be honest. I smell a bad console port...

    Such a shame :(
