What technologies or group of technologies are sony using that makes them superior?
I will tell you now.
Sure returnal may have an advanced particle systems.
But flight sim has advanced clouds or metro has RT Gi
Only a fool would say that one game is flat out superior at the moment.
Sony developers have access to Sony’s development tools and departments like VASG, and many others, that gives them an advantage over other developers. Along with having in house talent of course.
Somebody from insomniac awhile back on resetera said that PlayStation has the best development pipeline in the business. From beginning to end. That’s why PlayStation games look and feel so damn polished.
The workflow is very important. Sony is the best at what they do.
