    I think they should get a representative from Sony and one from MS on stage together with numbers written on boards and make them reveal them at the same time. Then we can get this shit moving.

    This.

    I know it was just a visual whizbang demo and saucy as it looked, I did find myself thinking "that's great, but I've played the bum out of Uncharted and Tomb Raider already".

    I hope Naughty Dog create new IP this coming gen, far removed from Drake and Co. as possible.
    Yup. It looked pretty but when the character squeezed sideways through that narrow gap I rolled my eyes. Also, that dynamic animation where she put her had on the door frame was already in Uncharted 3. 3!

    I think it's why I don't enjoy a lot of big games and seem to have gravitated back to "pure" games (as in, arcade shooters, racing, fighting, puzzle, etc.) instead of "experience" games.

    There's a bit of me that is half thinking that this was deliberately designed to evoke pangs of Uncharted.

    I find it harder and harder to get excited about slightly better graphics these days. Seems the days of mind-blowing generational leaps are well behind us. Although perhaps VR provides that? I’ve not tried it yet.

    First time I tried VR I was absolutely giddy with excitement and I could not wait to try it again. It did definitely provide that 'leap' for me, although it's been a while since I've been on it.

    I really hope PSVR2 is better with glasses as I couldn't wear the headset properly because mine are just too big.

    @jonathanlealand VR is definitely a leap in reality akin to the leap from 2D to 3D for me. From what I remember using VR for the first time I was fully expecting the move your head around and feel like you're in the 3D space sensation, but what I wasn't expecting was the stereo vision, which gives everything depth and a perceived solidness to it. So you get the double whammy of sensations.

    Yeah I miss that feeling of just being blown away by new tech as opposed to the incremental progress of current generation leaps, VR aside.

    Very tempted by VR but I don’t have (or want) a PC so my only current option is PSVR on base PS4... which I read is a bit ropy? Hopefully PS5 has PSVR 2.

    Incidentally I already have likes of Tetris effect, Resi 7, Rez and other VR compat games. They’re all brilliant and my mind boggles to think how good they must be in VR.

    I don't think there's that much difference between base and pro VR in all honesty.

    @jonathanlealand the first time I played VR , particularly RE7, it was one of the most awe inspiring moments of had in 30 years of gaming.

    Hopefully the PS5 comes with all the VR stuff built right in, so you can plug in the headset with one cable directly into the console and that's it (or even better go wireless). After moving, the main reason I haven't hooked up my PSVR yet is the sheer chaos of cables it creates. Right now it's tidy and nice.

    Wot? There’s a woman. With a ponytail. And a shit posh British accent. In an underground temple. Moving ancient machinery around...

    ...and your first thought is “Uncharted!”???

    I know they’re largely indistinguishable nowadays, but come on! :-D

    People say 'its not all about the gwaffix!' but I started playing Just Cause 4 on the PC recently and all the character models look like they escaped from a house fire in GTA: San Andreas. It genuinely tears you away from what little immersion you have with the game every time one of the cunts starts speaking or one of the spacky NPCs stumbles by.

    Hey, I'm not saying I don't want things to look the mutts nutts - but in the present generation there have been plenty of jaw dropping visuals paraded out before us. Feels like, for the right team with the right budget, that's in the bag. Something genuinely new though? Not so much.

    That said, of course, I'll lap it all up regardless because I'm too far gone at this point. But the fact that Hollow Knight, a £12 game made by half a dozen people, is one of my games of the generation - and even that wasn't the most original offering - might suggest that I, and by extension THE WHOLE WORLD, might just be tiring of the fizz-bang. :)

    But no. There are always the young ones coming through, mouths agape, to feed the machine. Fucking males 18-35. Make me sick.

    I would much rather their first aim was 60 fps and work out the resolution and everything else from there. AC odyssey was stunning at times and I would rather the new ac looked like that with a rock solid 60 than a shinier game at 30.

    Its probably fair to say that the most lauded games this generation are the most inventive ones, rather than the best looking. If you asked the average game poseur to list their top ten games this gen, half of them would look no better than grannys garden.

    But...... as someone with the gaming taste of Michael Bay, I want something that will blow my tits off.

    Bloodborne at an actual 60fps.

    As much as I love new and shiny, this gen still can blow me away visually; RE2, Bloodborne, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, God of War, Yakuza 0 etc.
    My favourite game this gen is BOTW but despite being on the Switch, looks utterly beautiful.I'm currently playing Persona 5 Royal, which is basically an upscaled PS3 game and it looks fantastic.

    Like some others, I'd rather the extra powah was used more intelligently, e.g. if Bloodborne 2 comes out, I'd rather it was a solid 60fps with teh shiny died down.

    You can’t see 60 fps in screenshots, so that won’t happen. Luckily, not everything has to look like a soap opera so 30 fps is much preferred.

    What?

    Can't think of a single advantage of 30FPS over 60FPS for games.
