Am I losing it or does this thread have a bunch of posts from other threads in it all of a sudden? I made a post about Observation in the Game Pass thread, yet now I'm seeing it here. Now I'm seeing a load of posts about Tories and Covid-19.

 

Glad it's not just me. I posted something in the Covid-19 thread and it ended up in here so I hid it.

Parasite’s not a low budget movie though. It’s just not a Blockbuster Summer Movie Event, which seems to be the only type of game that gets the time of day as a major event. The bread and butter of the Oscars is movies like Parasite but gaming’s equivalent are all Marvel movies.

 

It's big budget by indie standards I suppose but low budget by Hollywood studio standards. The gaming equivalent of the Oscars (an awards ceremony put on by the industry itself) is either GDC or DICE, Untitled Goose Game was the gaming equivalent of Parasite this year as it won at both.

 

Looking at the history of both awards, major studio games have won most years but as they are peer awarded, clearly even game developers think the premium prestige games usually are the best things released that year but their taste ain't terrible usually.

 

RE: The Oscars, a criticism of that awards show is that it doesn't reflect popular taste leading to ever declining popular interest so they've been fiddling with it for several years to get more populist stuff like the Marvel movies included, even if most of Hollywood doesn't care for them.

Someone on Twitter has pointed out as the camera pans round to the right of it it moves and actually looks like it lifts up off the table, so a cgi.

Yeah I see that now. I'm sure the real thing will be much better looking.

They're not real, but they're to show scale. If you're actually asking if it's to scale, then yes.

I don’t think we need the power of PS5 if that flat-shaded jaggy mess can pass as photorealistic.

In that case we didn't need any console beyond the 360 and its photorealistic PGR3 visuals! Remember that epic discussion?

Instead of buying a new media unit to house the PS5, I think I will simply use the PS5 as the media unit.

I still can't bring myself to believe it's that big.  There'll be some slight exaggeration going on.  It's gigantic!

Don't know if it's to scale "or naw" but note that it seems bigger than it actually is in the video itself because it's stood on world's tiniest table straight out of hobbit town.

Well, it will tend to look bigger vertically compared to a console that’s horizontal, and I think the 3D model they’ve used hasn’t got tbr curves right and makes the underside a lot thicker than it really will be. But neither console is  going to be small, that’s obvious.
 

I wonder how much smaller it could’ve been if they’d gone for a denser design like Microsoft’s rather than the traditional flat box? Spreading all the chips over such a wide area has got to have an influence.

Sony's back-compat solution revealed: the console can easily house all your existing PlayStation consoles.


This is a joke, but the PS2 Slim is small enough they could put a bay for it in there and you probably wouldn’t even notice. Opposite side to the optical drive for balance.

Price, fan noise, size.

 

You have to pick 2 of 3 to be in your favour, 1 against.

 

Price against =£599+, fan noise against =PS4 Pro levels and louder, size against =PS5+

 

Price for =£399, fan noise for =inaudible, size for =Gamecube

 

Whaddyado?

I don’t care how big it is if it helps it run quieter.

The Xbox One X is very compact and small, and yet is also quiet. Big doesn't necessarily mean silent, but I hope Sony listened to the feedback on the Pro.

Really :lol:

The first thought I had was “augmented reality”

Try some augmented reality and see if you don’t move the camera in the exact same way...it’s a human thing
