Woah, everyone is expecting every PS5/XSX game to be 4k60? Holy shit!
not me. It will be 4k for sure even if not full 4k, but 60fps? No way. Devs dont care about it, most of the public dont care about it. Hell some people cant even see the difference.
Exactly! Native 4k and 60fps (or even 120fps) is a sure fire way for developers to be as inefficient as possible as that would suck up 2/3 of gpu resources on something that some people won't even notice. So why are we all thinking Lockhart is such a great idea, saying its not going to hold back Series X? How would a game that pushes Series X to its limits at 30fps/1440p be able to run on Lockhart? The truth is that Lockhart is only going to work if Series X would be wasting those 8Tflops and 7GB of extra RAM on running Lockhart games at 4k/60fps.
I know most people don't care or expect all games to be 4k/60fps. But that's what MS is selling with Series X anyway. I mean has there been any game announced for Series X that isn't 4k/60fps or even 120fps? Its pretty much what the "optimized for Series X" stands for (together with Ray Tracing) and all uncle Phil's been talking about.
For arguments sake, lets say MS only announced Lockhart and Series X would have come out somewhere in 2024 as a mid-gen console. Would anyone have been ok with that? Because that's exactly what's happening, only they're releasing their mid-gen console early.
Again guys, look at these two badges and you tell me what's the difference between Series X and the XOne X?
