  1. Microsoft: Shows games that look kind of bleh but will actually come out.

    Sony: Shows Unreal Engine tech demo that was very carefully chosen to not represent anything that will actually be on the system for years, at which point it will probably run better on XBox anyway.

     

     

    Is it 2005 again?

      Forgot, aside from Daysgone, what first party games Sony made this last generation used the Unreal 4?

      Nope and it's not even close. I for one am glad to see what a next-gen console can actually do, and not "here's games that'll come out on current-gen anyway".

      And the difference between the consoles in terms of raw power isn't that much different except for an SSD, where PS5 has a much bigger and probably more important gap.

      Epic games showed us a vertical slice of what next gen consoles might actually be capable of and not just old PC games.

      So am I. Let me know when we actually see it.

      Different enough that Sony made sure to be very careful of their wording of it to make even the theoretical performance look as close as it was.

      The actual gap is probably in the PS5's dedicated sound hardware, which could allow offloading sound processing to it instead of needing the CPU to handle it, than it is the Series X being limited by "only" PCI-E Gen 4 transfer speeds in how fast developers can overwhelm the GPU when streaming assets.

      You're right, games will look better than the tech demo by 2023, like how UE4 games do compared to its tech demo.

      And just like UE3 games did (eventually) on PS360.

       

       

      It's almost as if I was referencing something specific that has happened in the console industry in the past when I made the status in the first place.

      😱

      ok I'm actually lost, what are you referencing?

      Sony showing off an Unreal Engine 3 tech demo running on PS3 hardware and using it to take shots at the actual games Microsoft showed running on 360 earlier that didn't look that great; when ultimately when actual games came out using it Unreal Engine 3 ran better on the 360 anyway.
