    Itís nice though. High quality feel, rather than ďgame studioĒ logo.

    I honestly expected to see Stan Lee at the end of that!

    Yes, but that was live on the PS5. First real showing of what it can do.

    I'm just fucking salty because I spent over a grand on my PC, and it looks like Sony are going to shit on my head and make me say thanks for the hat :(

    From what Iím hearing (I need to sit and pay proper attention to the interview) itís a lot to do with the speed of data transfer on the PS5.

    Itíll be interesting once we get to the actual first party titles. Console reveals are fun and everything but I want to see what the 1st party studios are actually doing with all the unhindered access, on both machines.

    It's sad that a not even real game demo of Definitely Not Tomb Raider told me more about next gen, and was more engaging, than the entire MS 3rd party thang last week. I mean - jeez, even that vid as a closer would've made last week's demo far more impactful.

    Sony stole a march on this one, no doubt. Still not gonna buy the PS5 though until someone has confirmed it doesn't sound like a fucking DustBuster though. :)

    UE5 looking this good bodes well, as said above, for PC Series X games on the engine. Wonder if that's what they've been putting all the extra CPU power into.

    Yeesh, that doesn't look like something my PC could run, even if I upgraded to a RX 5700 XT or whatever its successor will be, and popped in a nVME. Then again, I usually play on PC for convenience, not for better graphics. But you can be sure that I'm going to get at least one of these boxes.

    Btw, all this talk of PS5 and XSX and whatnot is making me wonder how the Switch will cope.

    The fact that there was little to no pop in or LOD transition kinda blew my mind.

    I'm wondering what these new engines will mean for budget gaming. Used to be that even a budget PC could outperform consoles, or at least match them.

    But what kind of minimum requirements are we going to need in the future? I mean, in the first few years I guess not much will change, since multiplatform games will need to run on PCs with crappy cheap SSDs as well. But maybe eventually a NVMe drive and RT graphics card will become mandatory. If not, all the development advantages of the new engines will be worthless.

    I wonder, with a Ryzen 3600 and 16GB of memory, if I just buy a new GPU this year, will I be able to stick it out for at least the next three years with my six core CPU and crappy SATA SSD? And then, at that point I can just upgrade my whole system, including CPU, GPU, RAM, mobo and hard drive.

    Arenít consoles basically budget PCs when they launch with the dubious advantage of a single hardware target and low level access? To be inevitably hopelessly surpassed by mid-range PCs a year later.

    @Malek86 reading the DF piece on this demo and it read like Epic havenít even really begun leveraging the fast SSD stuff properly. So in theory nothing a PC couldnít do today. Which makes sense given itís a multi platform engine.

    All the innovation is in the tool chain and workflow. Unless I read it wrong.

    To be fair the interview alludes to this new engine's performance as being "awesome" on decent PC's with normal SSD's, and especially NVMe's. I think you'll be fine, especially (if you choose to upgrade) with something like a 5700XT, which is very closely matched with something like the PS5 GPU.

    Love me a tech demo though, it's very impressive.

    I like how candid they are in the interview about the performance metrics as well, with this apparently running at a dynamic resolution resolving at 1440p most of the time and 30fps.

    Obviously this level of rendering comes at a cost and those expecting 60fps or even just 4k resolution across the board next generation need to realign expectations if they want visuals like this.

    Plus it's a tech demo at the end of the day, traditionally you're lucky to see actual games looking like this. That said, most of these new engine features seem as much about usability as they do about eye candy, so here's hoping.

    Good news for all I'd say, Xbox & PC as well.

    @dominalien I think it might take a bit longer this time. But then again, these consoles are probably going to be more expensive than usual.

    Looks well impressive, bodes very well for the visuals of the likes of Horizon:Zero Dawn 2.

    We all know there won't be that much native 4k/60fps next gen, as usual It'll be 1440p up-resed and 30fps plus loads of shiny. It will look awesome though.

    If all those other engine makers invest in this self same tech, sure. I imagine each game will have its own strengths and weaknesses on the visual side as each studio prioritises different things.

    Diminishing returns anyways. Fuck the visuals - give me something new to play.

    Iíd like them to take some crazy risks, like, maybe, an 8k brass rubbing RPG.

    So from xbox no gameplay last week, we now have PS5 1440p 30fps no game with (admittedly gorgeous) tech we wont see for 2 years, and doesnt use anything particular from the next gen feature set.

    Ffs months from launch and we have almost nada (i think we have seen stuff actually running on the x at least).

    And of course the main event is who goes first on pricing. I wonder if Sony's big cv related losses will have any impact on their approach.

    As E3 has been cancelled and there's a global pandemic disrupting pretty much everything, I'm utterly amazed that there haven't been hours of footage of a console 6 months before release.
    Amazed, I tell you.
