    AFAIK it's unknown
    PS: of course it is unknown only until you read it comes to Steam.

    I've read some messages saying that it's played badly in PS4. To be honest, I have a PS4 Pro and I have played flawlessly from the beginning to the end (in terms of FPS and drops) at 1080p. Since there is no FPS meter, I would tell, (before the "60FPS" patch) that the game was running about 40FPS+ without drops and after the patch, even better. I can't assure that it was 60FPS but it was pretty decent. So people, I know it's not like PC but saying that the PS4 version runs "bad", it's just a hater that can't argue and be logical.

    The PS4 version runs pretty well. That's a fact. Every statement that the PS4 version runs "bad" and < 40 FPS is just a lie.

    Now with the PC release, it looks fantastic. It was a matter of time, anyways.

    The fact that it runs fine on Pro doesn't change its performance on the base PS4. I'm sure it's not unplayable, but 1080p at 30 FPS and/or a ton of slowing is pretty bad by my standards. Especially since gaming PCs will do a steady 60 FPS at 1440p/4K as long as they optimize it well.

    Sure, you're right. I'm not defending how it is supposed or not supposed to a console run, but you are comparing a (maximum) 400€ console with a computer that can run the same game with the same quality, at the same speed that costs more

    There's a long list of games worse than FFXV but better than ET and Superman 64.

    Maybe, but in those games there's no drugged masturbator Prompto (The WORST Fictional Character of all time!) or stupid retarded selfies, and don't count how FF XV take care much more (only) about graphic and useless visual effects over storyplot, making good decent characters and solid gameplay (like the 98% of all ps4 titles; the remaining 1% are games cloned from each others and another 1% are remastered and remakes). Wiht FF XV you pratically waste 60-80 buckets for nothing.

    LOL, you are triggered about the weirdest things.
    But I agree it is a waste of time/money and a big disappointment.
    IMHO they made very bad decisions regarding story-telling, character and world development.
    They weren't able to hook me to the characters, and specially to the locations and cities.
    I stand by what I wrote in the spoiler of my previous post. For me not to be disappointed they need to fix all of that in the list.

    You forgot step 14. Remove that shitty Prompto or bring back his Versus XIII version.
    And yes, grenade-like system magics is a total shame; FF XVI will be CoD-like FPS sure.
    And... over 20 years of this saga, ALL FF have a female character playable. So i suppose FF XV is for gays because is a gay boy-band simulator.

    FF XV world is empty, like his characters, his storyplot and his devs brain.

    Probably, a bad-ass female magic powerhouse like e.g. Celes is really missed in this game.
    They could have made Lunafreya into one, perhaps...
    And add Iris to the party, as some physical attack based character,
    and well... Aranea too, she is in there, should have been playable from the get go.
    Also it would have been great to be able to choose the character you use to fight.
    Meh, a lot of missed opportunities.

    But the worst is that all characters feel superfluous, the plot, storytelling and character development fail badly.

    8K is a resolution now?

    It has existed as a resolution for some time now, but that doesn't mean anything is powerful enough to play games at a decent frame rate in that resolution. Maybe Quad-SLI with the newest Titan?

    I'll believe it when the reviews are out. Keep in mind, this is the same company that decided to hard lock their last numbered release to 720p with no graphics or control options at all. Their history of PC release treatment begs for caution... and for the love of god, don't preorder it!:whip:

    Where have you been? Linus just made a 16K setup with about 16 4K monitors. Took 4 Quadro cards using Mosaic mode, but it did work.

    Fuck... now you killed the universe man, spelling out a paradoxon.
    How can SM64 or even ET be worse than FFXV? ^^
