It is always the same thing, every damn times when a new gen is coming, we have a fantastic trailer, then, when we compare what we have at the release of the game we see the reality and the gap. I think the N64 started this, with some incredible pictures of Turok, I can't find a better example earlier in the past.
I would say that Nintendo is the most honnest among the 3, still you all remember this trailer, which is way above the level of the final game :
Even in 2020, 6 years later on a Switch Pro, we would be completly blown away if Breath of the Wild 2 could reach this level (shown in 2014)
This is simply MARKETING, and it just works. If one does it, the two others are forced to do it as well to survive the competition.
I am sorry, I just feel they have done exactly the same thing with Hellblade 2, I absolutly don't believe at all that we will have this level of detail in the final product, the "direct visual gap" has always been smaller and smaller between "gen n" to "gen n+1".
Will you just answer me that I am wrong and this time, the trailer was really showing us what will be the real time graphics of the XSX and gen 9th ? Or you thinking the same as me ? I am wondering really, when I watch reactions here and on youtube, it looks like everybody is in deny and believe it without hesitation.
