    Yep. Besides, for all we know it may become a gimmick if it's not used properly.

    The concept of something being a 'gimmick' can be applied to a lot of things. Heck, a lot of people say that Ray Tracing, in the current implementation, is a 'gimmick'.

    It's another one of those highly subjective concepts. Some people will think it's a gimmick, some will 'get it'. And that's totally fine.

    What's important is that it is used consistently across all sorts of games, and that's all we can ask for!

    Was this speed up applied to just TLOU? Or is it’s happening on all games ? Because it looks like more than 1 title to me.

    Looks like it's happening across the board, seems they are adopting the Kraken+Ooodle pipeline. If this is the result without the data storage optimisation then it's pretty cool.

    Yea, if this is what is speeding it up. Compressed size can be the same; but the speed of decompression can be much higher which is really the what oodle kraken brings to the table.

    nice to see that license get put to work. I would love an official memo on it; but it’s nice increase worth marketing imo

    Hmm, I was under the impression that if you don't renew PSN, you lose the games even if you do get it again months later.

    Nice to know. :)

    You also get them on the camera. Haven't heard about it being on the charger but since it's on everything else, I can imagine it's on there too.

    Don't know about loosing games but you definitely loose all your game saves if you let it die past 6 months.

    Holy crap, the image quality is incredible!

    Wow, no one can say that the improvement is minimal with the new machines. That looks like a huge generational increase to me.

    Won't that list be every game since it's part of the terms for releasing games on PS5?

    I think that there might be games that simply make no use of the adaptive triggers and haptics, so they wouldn't be? No idea.

    Also, since you can't play PS5 games with the DS4, every game has to support the DS5.

    EDIT: I'm just posting opposing views on it to have some discussion that isn't focused on a ton of theoreticals in the PC realm.

    I think the point is that some people are fake-concerned that AT/HF is a gimmick that ‘won’t be used by anyone’.

    You don’t *have to* support AT/HF but seeing so many games doing so already is reassuring.

    its good to see. and hopefully this becomes the norm. People are jaded though. I am jaded myself about it. I don't think it's fake-concern more so than people just expecting the norm, which they've seen play out over the course of every generation.

    if this is different, and it becomes the focus of everything go forward, this would be genuinely the first time it's ever been accomplished since something like Wii. Joycons are more adept than the Wii controllers, but you can see that they are now largely unused for instance.

    Comparative list to titles using the 'Impulse triggers' on xbox one.
