The Witcher 3 got a PS4 pro patch today. People can finally play in 4K with High Dynamic Range (HDR) support without having to navigate seas of vegetation magically popping in as they travel.
When the Xbox One X launched in November, players discovered the console could run a completely un-patched disc version of The Witcher 3 at 60 frames per second. The Xbox One X update for the game dropped today, giving players a choice of 60 FPS performance or 30 FPS at 4K.
The Xbox One X update for Fallout 4 arrived this week, and while Microsoft’s machine delivers the best-looking un-modded version of the game on a console, Digital Foundry’s in-depth comparison found the PlayStation 4 Pro’s version ran a tiny bit smoother. That’s the difference full 4K makes.
The 4K and full HD remaster of Star Ocean: The Last Hope is now available on PC and PS4 for the special launch price of $20.99. This might be my last hope of playing through one of the best 3D Star Ocean games, after my previous attempt was thwarted 25 hours in by burglars.
Today marks the launch of Elgato’s 4K60 Pro, the first “consumer-priced” capture card that will grab 4K video at 60 frames per second. It works great, but its PC requirements are as steep as its $400 price tag.
When my older capture devices wouldn’t accept a 4K signal, I switched to Avermedia’s Live Gamer Portable 2 Plus. The $200 box records 1080p, 60 FPS video to a PC or SD card, while still displaying at 4K on my TV. Downside—it won’t pass an HDR signal. Upside—it’s shaped like a Toblerone.
Here’s a comparison between Star Wars Battlefront II running on Xbox One and Xbox One X, courtesy of YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits. It’s a great example of the difference high-resolution textures make. Looks so clean and crisp, doesn’t it?
A 40-inch ultra HD curved LCD monitor with the ability to display up to four full HD inputs simultaneously, Philips’ BDM4037UW seems like the perfect large monitor for a multi-platform gamer. And it would be, if not for a couple small missteps and one large stumble.
Age of Empires Definitive Edition will come to PC on Oct. 19, 2017, exclusively for Windows 10. A new trailer from Gamescom showed off the new 4k graphics, remastered soundtrack, and lots of good zoom.
Xbox One X will have a limted “Project Scorpio” edition available when it launches this fall Microsoft announced today at its pre-Gamescom briefing.
This is footage of The Witcher 3 running 60fps at 8k resolution. That’s 7680 x 4320. On max settings. Gulp.
Regardless of your thoughts on flimsy content, streamlined mechanics and game modes — Star Wars Battlefront is a gloriously pretty video game.
Having played Grand Theft Auto V on the Xbox 360 and again on the Xbox One, I didn;t grab a copy of the PC version for the story or the multiplayer—I got it for those sweet 3840 x 2160 ultra HD graphics. So far I’m very pleased.
I've been toying with the idea of purchasing an Ultra HD monitor since toying around with the enhanced resolution early last year. With the release of the first 4K screenshots of Grand Theft Auto V on PC, the time for toying is over.
Dishonored came out two years ago. So, you'd be forgiven for forgetting how splendid Arkane's Victorian stealth game looked. But, thanks to the glory of screenshots done up in 4K, you can marvel at the design of Dishonored all over again.
The next-generation of monitor technology is upon us, quadrupling the number pixels our monitors can manifest and placing a heavy burden on our beleaguered video cards. What does it take to put together a 4K-ready gaming PC? Let's find out, with a little help from AMD.
