    Gears 5 MP Gameplay

    IGN's 14 Minutes of Gears 5 Gameplay




    Looks like....;Gears...anyways...still waiting for SP....As of right now the best looking upcoming UE4 based game (which frankly isn't super amazing either...but they seem to be aiming for 60FPS which is nice) is Star Wars Fallen Order

    They could have held 2 press conferences with the same games and given all the games more time and it would have been better, felt oddly paced and nothing was given breathing room.

    People placing any weight on them not very clearly stating that they are going to make the most powerful console like they did with Scorpio seem to forget 1 very important difference: Back then the PS4 Pro was just a handful of months from release and everything was locked down.

    Yes, this is also my conclusion, altough we do not know all the details. I am always a bit surprised how equal the consoles from MS and Sony turn out to be, not in the GPU and CPU department, because that follows the market HW cost, consumer price and release time, but that they both seem to have this special SSD solution that I believe caught most of us with a surprice. I guess it shows that the "information walls" between the companies are not very thight?. Anyhow I personally believe that these two consoles will be max 10-15 % from each other power wise. History shows that this will be a negliable difference at on screen gaming experience. (Yes I know that analysis will say resolution differences and so on...) This is good because we consumers can consentrate on which console give us the games and services that each of us want. The last few weeks I have seen people have raised their conserns at their favorite console provider, and I just wanted to get this off my chest. Don't worry be happy:).

    Exactly..but common sense has long gone out of the window and is laying dead on the pavement...neither MS nor Sony are going to claim anything until one of them has officially announced its specifications. "Rumors" at this stage are nothing more that toilet paper thin hot takes.

    I understand people wanted some more meat(gameplay) but that's for the rest of the conference. Microsoft will use Mixer & Inside Xbox to get deeper & more one on one with the stuff they announced. You can't put all the gameplay in the keynote. The show would have been 4 or 5 hours long. There's a reason why press & people go to the expo part. To see hands on stuff & report about it. If after the conference they don't dig deeper into the titles shown, then complain.

    Ori is gorgeous and Flight Simulator just looks amazing.

    And I really really hate 21:9 videos in 16:9 containers.

    Ori is crazy. One of the first game to use Unity's Scriptable Render Pipeline... the Feb 2020 release hurts tho..

    curiously enough, Sony said that PS5 supports raytracing, but we don't know whether it does support it natively via hardware or not. MS clearly stated that Scarlett supports RT via hardware.

    Even if they're capable of RT, how common will it be, at least at launch?

    4K60 HDR will be enough for the developers to tout.

    Now, are today's UHD HDR TVs capable of 4K60 or do they need HDMI 2.1?

    I kinda wish we had gotten a “and this is what a scarlet game will look like...” clip in the Scarlet teaser.

    Imagine what that means for us here? Pretty much a year of speculating and rumours to entertain our bored minds.

    Isn't that great?
