Digital Foundry - Dying Light 2 (PS5 vs Xbox Series X/S)

Well PS5 is the only one with a 8K game...

That's for media, but it actually has a 8K/60fps game.
That's interesting if it is for media because it is first and foremost a video game console, not a media player. And yet 8k is the first thing listed on the box.

And there is one game at 8k....after 14+ months on the market. Seems a bit like false advertising.

Again, I don't know what's on the chip. Show me the chips so I can see for myself. I've never seen the chips.

This is your response? Oof. So you got nothing to add and you admit defeat. Go enjoy your "8k console" the ps5. ;)

Defeat? What are you, 10? This console war is a real war! Oorah!

Did you bother clicking the link I posted? Says 8k too for Series X. False advertising? Nope.

It's 6K, I believe.
Why are you making this into a console war? My first post was in reply to someone saying the PS5 was advertised as a 4k console when it fact it's advertised as an 8k console.

I never brought up the Xbox, yet you keep bringing it up. We're talking about the PS5 here. No need to console war, little guy

Because if it's false advertising for one... It's also false advertising for the other. One of them has a 8K game though, but neither is a false advertisement.

That's cool. Thanks for sharing. You got a pic of the PS5 chip?

One 8k game. LOL. What a great 8k console! Good thing 8k is displayed so prominently on the front of the box.

That's one more than the other console that says 8K.

And there you go again with your console wars! What are you, ten years old? PS5 has 8k prominently displayed on the front of the box. They have ONE 8k game. You don't find the humor in that?

Not really, because the 8K on these consoles is meant for media, like I said. It's not a false advertisement for either of them. I don't think anyone expected any 8K games on these consoles (maybe Pong).

Funny because only one console has actual 8k game.
And you are trying to spin in something bad lol

Imagine how Xbox owners will feel with your comments.

It's meant for media when IT'S THE FIRST THING DISPLAYED ON THE BOX?! Get the fuck out of here!

You know you can just turn the box around right?

So wether it’s on the front or the back shouldn’t really matter. They both have them j the box and therefore it’s a feature being sold with the systems.

Had to check twice if I was in a Dying Light thread or one about resolution differences between Xbox / PS5

Anyway, hope that they improve the overall resolution in all modes.

Seems like their optimization job was lackluster

Has any review played the game on XBO/PS4? I haven't seen any mention of that.
Is this another situation (CP2077) where the devs are hiding the 8th gen versions before release?

I never said it didn't, the dude I was replying too was acting like it was only stated on the Xbox box.

Sorry about that. It just appeared that many were overly focused on the PS5 when the XSX does something similar. I wouldn’t call either an 8K system IMO. Heck even 4K isn’t guaranteed with all games on both platforms. Doesn’t mean these systems are not capable some incredible looking games.

My little VRR pleasure pearl goes vrrrooommm.
I’m not aware of any games that output at 8K on either system. Maybe I missed something but correct me if I’m wrong.

Because they can't actually output 8k like I said. Makes an 8k game pretty pointless really.
 
"We not count pixel native anymore because meaningless."

19% of more pixels on series X

Yeah and it's missing shadows in areas that the PS5 is not, same thing that seems to always happen when the Series X has a slight res advantage, there is a concession made in some other area although that could be a bug for all we know.

Same with the 6K games on Xbox, they are supersampled down to 4k. Until they are both updated for 8K output, that's what we'll have to deal with (which is fine because who the fuck has an 8K TV?).

You gotta have the FULL RT rendering in order to push visuals higher. Shadows is extremely important to present a realistic scene. Without them, you have last-gen visuals. I've mentioned this over and over again, RT is too much for this generation @4k. We need more bandwidth. This generation is already peaked out as far as features are concerned. The shortcuts are literally lowering the pixel count. No more optimizing ASM language code to get better performance. Give us bandwidth next time dammit!!!

The 8K marketing has always been a bit of false advertising from both. Neither can even play back an 8k media file without supersampling right back to 4K. I understand that both are technically 8K capable, but I would say don't market it until you can actually support it. At least MS didn't plaster it on the front of the box.

I really dont think this game was well optimized

Launching with bugged DLSS support kinda says a lot, imo

I see Techland improving the game technically in the next few months
