Honestly, it is hard not being able to share more or convey just the strict science of it, but I do what I do because I love it and watching a formula come to life is really why. I can't fault folks for missing the jumps many of the tech people see, because yes, we'll never quite be at a PS1-PS2/PS2-PS3 situation again. But, there is still so much work to be done and the kind of worlds that are going to be rendered this time around won't simply be a visual jump and little else.

Just remember this word: D E N S I T Y

When you say "the science behind it" I do remember the devs explaining what they done in The Order and just thought "I had no idea devs knew these much about advance physics and what not".

Yeah, much more goes into it than people realize. Often times, the devs are simply better equipped artists like me, using the exact same techniques that are at my disposal.

After you said so many times even after the UE5 demo that we haven't seen ANYTHING yet, I honestly expected more than what was on show here. Not that some of the games shown weren't very pretty - I actually was very partial to Kena in particular - but there wasn't anything that gave me that "holy shit" moment.

Put it this way, if early stuff looks like this (which includes many of the features I said it would), then the UE5 demo is an appetizer. I also said that, while the best of the best wouldn't be seen at launch, early games would display the advancements that technology had taken in the 3D world (Athia, for example, looks very much like the scene I created)...

Athia

My Scene

Same advancements, including raytracing, better draw distances, and texture work. ;)

I just see diminishing returns. Still returns but diminishing.

8th gen:

9th gen: 

We can see an impressive depth of field effect in the 9th generation and if we examine the screenshots closely, we also notice that the rough polygonal edges in the character model are gone. Beyond that, the lighting is improved and the additional processing power allows for more detailed facial expressions.

just imagine next next gen

I am in love with this gif! Hahaha! What the hell!?

Yes kirby could use a 10th gen leap

I just think everyone should go back and watch the trailers in 4k, the live stream really didn't do a lot of the games shown justice.

I`ll tell you youtube have been such a joker here that even 4k streams were looking worse than 1080p for like 2 days. I will watch the DF analysis of the show and hope their stream is good or have a download video.

Yea I am at that point myself. There are differences for sure but I haven't had my Infamous Second Son moment yet in terms of Graphics.

you need to manually put it on 4k for some vids even if the title is 4k

Gamersyde often has a decent quality in my opinion (at least if you rewatch trailers there)



While I was impressed by the UE5 demo, the actual games shown so far have diminishing returns hitting hard for me. Just like the jump from PS3/360 to PS4/Xbone, I'm left left feeling like "that's it? After 7 years?"

That "wow, now this is next gen" feeling is so far sorely lacking.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

My laptop is the diminishing return factor. Viewing static shots in 600x400 or whatever vgchartz scales them down to, I guess it looks better? Too lazy to watch 4K streams on my tv (don't even know how). Too lazy even to right click view image and zoom in :/

That gif with the instant transitions looks mighty impressive (other thread) but static shots on a 1080p SDR display, Death stranding on my 4K HDR tv looks much better. Marketing has reached an end point here. It already had no chance to properly show/market VR, now it can't market 9th gen improvements either.
