    Never heard of last guardian before, looks impressive (for 8th gen then) game. SotC style of gameplay, going to try this on the ps5.

    Always appreciate when they focus on these, helps to put the spotlight on them and may put a little pressure out to get a proper patch, or a pseudo-PS5 patch that just unlocks the framerate like Jedi Fallen Order got.

    c (the speed of light) only happens in a total vacuum...something both Sci-Fi and people forget all the time...just to nitpick.

    Didn't remember that the Last Guardian ran that bad at last-Gen machines. I thought the 30fps patch was running with stable 30fps.

    That cutscene on Kashyyyk that they mention stutters heavily on every platform. Xbox, Playstation, last gen, current gen, PC.
    I expect the Switch port to finally get it right!

    Looks like a bug in the underlying streaming code that's shared across all platforms.

    Shame PS5 and XSS didn't get multiple profiles, especially XSS with a 30fps resolution/graphics mode.

    I get the strong feeling that the BC Mode of PS5 has the memory limit of the PS4 Pro. While the Xbox can use all the available memory if patched. That must be why they have just added the 60 fps mode for the PS5. You don't need more memory for 60 fps, just faster one. And at around 1200p it might just max out the available memory of the BC mode.
    The game was always demanding. Just dynamic 1440p on the Xbox one x in the 30 fps mode and even on pc, 4k 60 needed much stronger hardware.

    Question is why. The game looks good but not that good. And the visible areals are relative small. It uses the unreal engine which is normally quite efficient.

    Baked lighting can be part of the reason, lightmaps can get quite big on UE.

    The shot showing temporal upsampling on series s was nice and gives a reason why they told rendering resolution and post processing one.
    Post processing one is the target resolution for temporal upsampling and all post processing after it.

    According to people familiar with the three BC modes (NXGamer for one), the modes are about ensuring new GPU logic consistency with previous GPU logic and clockspeeds but maybe there is some memory access logic in there as well.

    Impressive, ive said it before but scaling between hardware has never been this good. Its the way going foward.

    It's impressive for the hardware, kudos to the devs.
