    @LifeIsStrange

    Yeah had a Google and found that. Apparently that what it says on the Xbox store.

    I set the demo downloading so it'll be there for me in the morning.

    About 7.5gb on the PS4

    My (basic) PS4 can't handle this game, constant fan noise (loud) and framerate issues.

    Ah well, maybe in the future on ps4 pro/ps5.

    The full release of this title might behave differently on your console.

    Considering RE7 runs at 60fps (and even on PSVR which os 90fps) I would be surprised if this had framerate problems.

    Framerate issues on Xbox too, arguably more pronounced. The basic PS4 also looks sharper and wasn't too noisy for me, although of course the Xbox is much more quiet by default.

    Who knows, in a horror game, this might be a pretty big advantage after all. But... the image quality on Xbox is just too soft.

    Fine on the pro. Graphics and frame rate are fine. It looks lovely.

    Couldn't resist and played 15 mins and turned it off.

    Not gonna spoiler anything.

    Only thing I didn't like was the controls feel a bit RE6. I felt like I was dragging Leon around especially when running. I'm sure I'll get used to it.

    I'll be playing on regular PS4, RE7 was no bother so I'm hoping this won't lag too hard given it's the same engine

    For a quick comparison (couldn't get the exact same spot, but), a shot near the beginning of the demo:

    PS4

    Xbox One

    If anyone has a Pro or X, I would like to take a look too, just to see how it compares.

    Played the demo on a Pro and it seemed to run fairly well with the odd slight hiccup in framerate here and there but nothing bad at all. Really nice and smooth to play, the gunplay is fantastic ( especially the shotgun ) and the gore is spectacular. The music was fairly muted but the ambient sounds of water drops etc are very well done. The atmosphere overall was definitely Resident Evil though, so strange to be in the old familiar police station but it all felt so new.

    In summary, can't wait for it.

    For the noise level of the Pro, I didn't hear the fans ramp up too much, seemed quieter than God of War throughout the demo but had headphones on most of the time so can't comment too much. Noise levels from what I heard were akin to the playful low growl of a spaniel or possibly collie. Will have to download on Steam later to see how it fares on the PC.

    @quadfather I enjoyed it. Very intense though and I scraped through to the end of the demo period.

    It gave me the Resi 4 courtyard intro vibes, although the controls did seem a bit loose.

    It made me want to pick it up, that's for sure.

    Controls were better than I expected tbh. The UI could do with a rework but it looks solid and I will pick it up.

    Looks quite soft on the X too. Going to have to bump the sensitivity on the ol' camera.

    This is definitely more survival than the original game - it can take several headshots to drop a zombie for good, and the aim is nowhere near as precise as the laser sight of RE4.

    I'm sure things will get more actiony later on, as they always do, but at least in the beginning it looks like it would be better to play conservatively.

    Tonight, I guess. Steam always updates in the evening.

    Horror games are not really my thing but will check out the 1X version for image quality assessment.

    Is this is a bit special then because it seems that Capcom may have hit a bit of a purple patch of late.

    While the demo is pretty familiar (and great) the video at the end spoils some surprises.Once you hit the screen showing your completion time you may as well turn it off there.

    Disappointed to hear it doesn't run well on base PS4, I'll give it a shot anyway.
