If you actually feel that way then you shouldn't buy the PS4 version. You'd only regret it anyway. Better off waiting for the PS5 and/or PS6 version.

I guess I need to decide how important portability is. I originally held out for the Switch version but haven't bought it yet because Square and Nintendo means the game will remain expensive forever.

With Switch, there's portability. With PC, there's the inevitable mods which will bring it back to the original graphics. Decisions.

Yeah, it's going to look worse than the base PS4 version. I don't know how SE built DQXI: S but by the looks of it, it seems that it would be too time consuming to use the PS4 assets...which is strange. 

If you can view this...the first image is the original PS4, the second is the new Steam, (Assuming PS4 as well) and Xbox screens... Yikes. 

Yeah, I guess the new engine they made for the Switch version is causing issues when they try to implement the vanilla assets into it. And it's probably too time consuming to re-create all the new content in the vanilla engine.
Re-posting the images here.

So, this new version on PS4, which is a port of the Switch version, which is itself a port of the base PS4 version, with additional content added, looks worse than the original PS4 version. But does the Switch version of the PS4 port look better than the PS4 port of the Switch version that's an enhance port of the base PS4 version?

Probably not, because this Switch port of a game that was a port of a PS4 game will have the same resolution as the original PS4 version.

That's for the clarification. :) It's too bad comprmises had to be made. Ideally, the new version(s) of a game will only add to the the experience. My interest is effectively rendered null, because I have to choose between content and performance.

Why wait? Seems like it is a direct port of the Switch game minus the portability factor.
Seems Switch still has the best version of the game.

Um, okay? Good for you. I personally have no regrets playing this game anywhere I wanted to on my Switch. Loved the game!

Wait...it's 40 freaking bucks? Switch Tax smh... On a separate note... why is this just not DLC?

Edit: So apparently...it is the same geometry and textures as the Switch version...just better framerate and resolution? Ehhhhh...

It's the same as with Resident Evil 4, which needed to be downgraded visually to run on the PS2, but got some extra stuff in return. That extended yet visually downgraded version got used later on for future ports, like the PC and Wii for instance. So same situation now, just the roles have Switched.

Always bring laptop with you to play anywhere at anytime? Not so sure about that



From what I read the core game on the ps4 base version is still awesome. The things that I saw on the S re-release are going to be for those super fans of Dragon Quest that loves nostalgic stuff (like all dq fans I guess), like midi sound, 2d snes like mode and some more side quests. Wich for me aren't really Important because I hardly do side quests.
