Oh so now it’s “everything would run fine on a HDD.. except this.” And “but this doesn’t require a ‘fast’ SSD”. Keep shifting those goal posts, friend.
I don’t know or care what you think about what qualifies a game as next gen or not because your definition is constantly changing to suit whatever Sony is doing and furthermore you’re the only one who was making a big deal about cross gen and “real next gen games” anyway.
What is the IO gap? How much does the XVA improve XSX? Again you’re speaking factually about things right after claiming no one knows. Also yeah we can only judge the games. Neither has shown anything super impressive yet imho. The most impressive stuff was not gameplay for both, Hellblade II and HFW. But that doesn’t mean the games won’t be good. I was more impressed with games like Little Devil Inside and that K game and both of those are cross gen, your literal nightmare. Funny how that works.
Cant wait to see your definitions change again after the July and August events.
How hard can it be to grasp what the average person would consider next gen graphics? Like I said before, they should be self explanatory. Now, has it ever occurred to you that what Sony showed got people excited because it simply felt next gen, and not because Playstation is so popular that the masses will flip out over whatever they show by default. I mean do you think anyone got super excited over Godfall? That game is also not on ps4, but its obviously not going to push the ps5 to its limits and have insane requirements on pc.
Anything we've seen so far on Series X are either cross-gen titles or games that, just like Godfall, aren't going to take full advantage of next gen like specs. They looked like run-of-the-mill pc games in 4k and that's why MS's event lacked that next-gen excitement.
