    Seriously though. They already said they ran hundreds - thousands of game engines to actually locate the bottlenecks. Scorpio is the first console of its kind where the hardware was actually built around the software - not the other way around.

    If 900p and 1080p are easy should mean a lot of games wont have much issue. Most of the 720p games like Dead Rising 3, CoD Ghosts, Killer Instinct, Battlefield 4 and Watchdogs moved to 900p for the sequels

    There will likely be a handful of notable games at launch that aren't that cause high drama. I think a large percentage of games in the first 6 months or so will be native. Less and less as time goes on, and devs decide to put the power into other things.

    When it comes to PC gaming I've always stuck with the highest resolution possible and then slowly got rid of settings to hit 60fps. I usually get rid of stuff like ambient occlusion or insane AA settings.

    You get rid of ambient occlusion!? That's probably one of the most important effects for making games look better! I couldn't do that!

    It does. Not from a gameplay perspective, but It was much appreciated when KI upped the resolution. Like it or not, a clean Image does wonders. MS needs it if for nothing more than to remove the easy target for the very aggressive detractors that flock to any MS exclusive footage. It's good for all kinds of images!

    I can't wait for the 4k onslaught. Hell, even for movies, 4k just makes things look amazing. 1080p is like, sooooo last half-gen!

    So there are 3 people that actually think that all games will be native 4K. Interesting.

    Well it doesn't have to be because pro doesn't do it. So if 1 game isn't 4k native it is then equal in power to the pro.

    They are wrong.

    Not all games will be native/true 4K.

    No I dont think it will because that will be a games developers choice. Dont be mistaken that this device can't do 4k.

    I was hoping he'd vote so i wouldn't be the only one. Come on Val, we've been over this man. When i bleed blue it's to back you up. With Andy gone, there's a big drop off in support here for PlayStation. MW's only giving me one post a month and it's like two words every time.

    Maybe Val is finally throwing in the towel? I mean, he only plays Destiny on PS4 anyway and it will look and run better on Scorpio if everything goes right. Might as well get things in order now instead of looking foolish later.

    As I suspected, he'll take a break and cool off.

    He'll be back. Like other times he takes a hiatus due to frustration, he'll take a break, then rejoin the board posting low key posts. Then after a short time, he'll be back full swing into it.

    He is taking a vacation from Union. He may be back some day. I talk to him on occasion over PSN, and he isn't missing the place. If he came back now, he would leave again because it hasn't changed. Even though the forum is called UNION, the majority are Xbox fans from Team Xbox. Andy like PS and the games they offer, and there isn't enough PS conversations here.

    He posts over at PSU, the place me and Kvally used to post at. I still have an account there, but only post once a month now. It's PS centric, so i'm sure he's enjoying it more than he did here.

    But yeah, he's killing me in the PS section here. He used to post all kinds of great reviews and insight and now the section is dead because he's gone. :really:

    HBAO, HBAO+, VXAO, are all pretty demanding.

    They really only add to the depth of shadows. Otherwise I would consider texture quality the most important in making games look better IMHO.

    I'm positive he'll be back.

    Hey Val, I'm going to assume you read this, but here's a tip if you don't want 90% of the forum coming at you. Personally, I don't think you really care, and you know exactly what you are doing. Your 18,000 posts are heavily skewed to pro-Sony/anti-MS, so the writing is on the wall. I don't think even those perma-banned guys like consolewarz and yoyoniner were this bad. At least for them, they only posted a few thousand times and that's it. Even they run out of steam at some point.

    But if you really are puzzled why you feel like an outsider here, it really has nothing to do with being a PS fan.

    There's lots of Sony fans on this board. And many gamers here have multiple platforms.

    The difference is that almost all of your posts involving the console war. You know it, I know it, every knows it. So don't play dumb.

    Given your posts over TXB and Union, you seem like a guy who's probably around 40 and has experience over numerous generations of systems and games. Now if you can take that experience and contribute to gaming threads here, you;d be more appreciated.

    Hey, everyone knows I like MS now. I used to be a PS fan, but now prefer MS. So what? I also enjoy talking CoD, NHL (during the TXB days when we had a TXB team for two years), old time classic gaming in the 80s etc.... If anyone wants to talk about Intelly, Apple II, or quarter munching arcade gaming, I'm in. Anyone want to know how I rack up insane k/d camping with ARs and LMGs, ask away.

    You have your preferences and experiences you could surely add, yet you focus almost all of your efforts into the MS vs Sony fight.

    The only real neutral posts you do that seem interesting are your electronics thread posts where you educate gamers on TVs, features etc.... You think I know anything about backlit vs full array? Nope. But good to see people discussing it. Because at some point I'm going to get a new TV too.

    I want textures too. And I don't get why we don't have it yet. It's so confusing.

    Those gathered shadows add a ton of depth to the scene. I can't stand baked shadows on dynamic ojects. Everything just looks flat to me. Like when an arm gets close to the body, or within grass. I really hate when the implementation sucks around eyes and in mouths. Or just the corners in rooms...

    Unless things change by the time the games being shown at E3 actually get released, your post was correct.
