  • Upgraded PS4 for next Xmas

    Hmm... I wonder how compatible new / older games will be. If it will just be a case, like PC games, where you get better graphics / resolution on the newer system but older systems can still play the games.

    Will be interesting to see what they do I think.

      It will be completely compatible, the CPU and GPU have received a speed pump plus redesign of some of the architecture. The OS will be the same. The reason is so they can make it a viable platform for higher than 1080P gaming albeit still at low frame rates.

        PC gaming is invariably a trade off between frame rate, resolution and image quality unless you run a very high specs machine, even then the game may look and play crap if the coding is lazy (FIFA springs to mind)

          I read this a week or so ago, I don't think I can be bothered tbh, I'll probably wait for the PS5 Unless Sony backtrack on their promises and the new games no longer all run on the standard PS4

            If you want to game at 4k then this might be worth it, even then many games will struggle even at consol framerates as its a HUUUUUGE jump in pixel numbers compared to 1080p
            2,073,600 pixels for 1080p
            3,686,400 pixels for 1440p
            8,696,160 pixels for 4k

            I game at 1440p which is a nice compromise, still keeps my frame rate high but with lovely visuals needing little AA

              Yeah I don't have a 4k telly so it was another reason why the newer PS4 wasn't that appealing. Mrs lfcrule claims she can hardly tell the difference when on Sky HD channels although when she watches old episodes of Buffy she can see how bad the resolutions were then lol

                ive got a 50" 4k tv in the mancave and a 55" (same make/model) in the family room, my wife was the same until we went back to watching something at 480, compared to an upscaled blueray she admitted there was a huge difference.

                  The problem for game makers is how many take up the new machine and the need to develop a game for both resolutions.

                      PC games generally scale well with hardware, resolutions are easily changed and unless its a console port, ingame graphical enhancements are easy to turn on/off or graduate. Il see how the next BF1 and the updated version of the DCS flight sim engine plays on my current rig then il decide whether or not to upgrade my graphics card to the generation hitting the shelves shortly.
