Such a gorgeous game and it runs butter smooth even on my ageing pc. (8700k, 32ram, 1080ti)

No annoying stuttering or other technical issues. The only thing i had to do was enable the sharpening filter in geforce experience to combat the TAA blur.

Had a blast so far, such a fun game! Running Survival II but hope i won´t regret it later :messenger_grinning_sweat:

This runs so much better than the ps5 version of the game, and looks so much better! Props to Sony for making this happen, and having so much more to come! Keep them coming! 38 more games/DLC to release
What PS5 version? It's a PS4 game, there is no PS5 version.

Yo how many of yall out here with this incorrect info, the game has no PS5 version period. It just runs the PS4 version with PS4 Pro resolution on PS5 with an uncapped frame rate (given via frame rate unlock patch) on the Ps5

Don't act dumb man, i clearly mentioned 60fps frame rate was just unlocked via patch for the PS4 version when played on PS5. There's no stand alone PS5 version like say a game like Destiny 2

Wait, so did Sony release a patch for the game to run on ps5 or what? I'm confused now. Or does it just run unlocked?

Dude seriously do you even own a PS5? Do you realize Ghost of Tsushima, God of War and Days Gone received patches to play the PS4 (Pro) versions on the PS5 with an uncapped frame rate, thus all three games hit 60fps PS5 instead of playing at locked 30fps.

I obviously don't own a ps5, I've only looked at comparisons of the PC version vs ps5 version of this game. I've never once claimed to own a ps5, so not sure why you are being so defensive bro. Why do you guys act this way whether PC players get to play a game? I hope you fix your behavior, so you don't end up doing this 38x more when each thread pops up with a stream release of a Sony game. Jesus, you guys can't let anyone enjoy anything.

Did I ever say anything to take away your enjoyment from playing the game on PC or PlayStation? I am merely correcting you by saying there's no PS5 version for Days Gone.

You can't play 60fps apparently on ps4/pro, so this technically is the ps5 version of the game. Maybe Sony will update the game, again, for both ps5 and PC at a later date, who knows. But wouldn't this be the ps5 version of the game, *for now supposedly*?

It is not a PS5 version, just a frame rate unlock that works when played on PS5. PS5 version means taking advantage of the i/O and the latest CPU/GPU and it's efficiencies (let alone the DualSense implementation). Nioh/Nioh 2 runs PS4 version on PS5 with locked frame rate at higher resolution, the same two games have PS5 specific versions offering more options higher res textures, higher frame rates and 1 second loading. None of Sony's First-party games have received a PS5 version to this day.

Can you play the 60fps "ps5" version, on the ps4/pro? If not, wouldn't this version be exclusive to the ps5, ultimately making this the current ps5 version? Maybe it'll get an update, maybe PC will get that supposed update too, but no word on it. I hate to bring semantics into this, but I was enjoying the game until you kept on trying to correct me.


Does anyone know where the screenshots save to?

Technically it's as much ps5 version as the patch that's exclusive on ps5 makes it. It has some upgrades that are not available on PS4. That makes is by definition some sort of a ps5 version.
Arguing about naming scheme is idiotic. It's easier to say pst version. If they will release a remaster, then it will be ps5 remaster version.
Anyway...

The only upgrade that's there is the unlocked frame rate that is it, it's mere backwards compatibility thing not a PS5 version.

Ps5 runs lower than lower textures settings on pc. Sony truly believes on pc gaming and not in generations 😂

This PS4 game runs with unlocked framerate on the PS5, yes. Not blaming you for the confusion. It's Alex who is intentionally confusing people.

The written article is pretty clear but yeah the video makes it seem like there is an actual PS5 version even though it's just the PS4 game running in BC.

Great looking port. Ssgi looks great. Looks like they are getting better at pc ports. seems well for future ports.

I do wish Alex just said PlayStation version every time he compares it because it just seems a bit annoying the constant vs the PlayStation 5 version. I do get that it’s probably an honest mistake but just wish he said something like PlayStation instead.

You mean, buy?

The initial camp don't sell guns, but the second one indeed, so you need to choise wisely what you want.

Cooper camp is more 'bike' focused, the other camp you open next will be more gun focus.
What do you recommend? Coop's camp or Tuck's camp?

So PS5 is too weak to run it??
They just didn't bother making a proper PS5 version that takes full advantage of the hardware, it's running in back-compat+ mode.

For e.g. load times on a proper PS5 version would be under 3-4 seconds, not 30+ seconds.

Either way it shits all over RDR2.
People experiencing this for the first time are in for a treat.
If you talk aboit technical prowess, No it doesn't lol.

Rdr2 was the biggest technical miracle of last gen bar none.

If you talk about game in general, they have different strenghts, i personally like rdr2 more.

Nah, even if you look past the weaker cartoony graphics it wasn’t doing anything close to Days Gone on a technical level. Less action on screen, weather poorly implemented (in comparison), empty surroundings. Doesn’t hold a candle to Days Gone. IMO

Just the animal ecosystem is more complex than anything inside days gone.

Also there is basically no npc to interact in days gone, i don't know how can you think that saint denis or any city in rdr2 is more empty than any location in days gone...

The quality of the animations, the humongous number of unique scripts (with mocap even for 30 sec events) is so far beyond anything inside days gone is not even funny.

Dg has a better weather system, but rdr2 has far more realistic mud and snow real time deformation that actually slow the movements of the characters and it's not only for show. (At least you feel a bit of difference while driving the motorcycle)


Also rdr2 is the game with more microdetails in existence, this is probably the biggest difference between the 2 games, rockstar has so much more money and manpower compared to bend, it's not even a fair comparison tbh.


I mean, rdr2 is widely recognized as the best technical achievement of last gen, days gone is good, but rdr2 was a juggernaut, shitty controls or not.

I much bigger improvement than I expected over the PS5 version (lower than low textures, lol). Good to see Sony putting a lot of effort into these ports after the choppy start with Horizon. It all bodes well for all those as yet unannounced games on their Steam page. I might pick this up someday, but GoT is the one I'm after.

The most barren open world in existence?! Yeah i don't know about that.

Great character details and great texturization for the environment, but almost zero physics or destruction and no animals or npc.

Thread is full of trolls or uneducated/misinformed folks trying to get a win over PS5 arguing its a PS5 game because it runs on a PS5.

Meanwhile all they do is playing a PS4 Game with upgraded graphics that hasn't been released on PS5.

Basically they are trying to show how powerful their pcs are while comparing their current systems against a 5 years old console. :messenger_beermugs:

Sony deserves shit for this imo. PC gets an improved version while PS5 customers (you know, the core base of Playstation fans) has to play with lower than low textures. Kinda sad tbh.

I don't know if sony deserves shit for it.
It was a game made for last gen and is playable on current gen.

There has been no re-release or something like that for PS5.
I didn't have to pay for it or anything.

If I boot up Battlefield 3 on a current pc I can't blame the developer or publisher when the game can't show current gen stuff can I?

PS5 players don't pay 50 bucks for it though.

I've played a few hours of it and the shooting feels pretty good for a console to PC port. Really dislike that you can't save during missions and the checkpoints are sometimes 20 minutes apart if you don't rush through the missions. PC games generally give you quick save/load options.

Quite enjoying the game so far, but man he missions structure is quite confusing for me so far, compared to most open world games.
I never know what i'm doing, or why. Only 3 or 4 hours in though so far.

The best looking barren wasteland in existance and best characters.
Sure, no physics and open world dynamic but it's different game. Rdr2 despite all it's tech and vast gameplay managed to be boring and too drawn out compared to death stranding. But it looks great aside from characters kinda being last gen

Arthur is super detailed, but yeah the other pg are fairly inferior, especially the faces.

Thankg god arthur is also a better character than all the character inside DS combined :lollipop_squinting:

That's because PS5 is running the PS4 version, PS4 Pro specifically. It has only 5.5GB dedicated for games so it shows.

There's no dedicated PS5 version akin to Spider-Man or like Miles Morales which takes advantage of the PS5 HW.

Goddamn this game looks da shit! Best looking Unreal engine game by far!!

I gotta admit these PS exclusives have production values through the freaking roof!! I can't wait to play other games they have in store. Keep em coming Sony!!
When Sony guys put their exclusives above and beyond third-party titles, this is what they mean by that.

IMO, Naughty Dog's games have the highest of the highest production values than any PS studio. Their attention to detail in every aspect of the visuals, gameplay animations, even sound (audio) really stands out from other games.

That isn't the point, is it? If you're talking about a tecnical tour de force, than RDR2 is it. The game has it all, you guys aren't discussing if it's a good game or not but the technical prowess of it, and imo RDR2 is the beast in the previous gen.

Fully technically, rdr2 is great. of course it is even just by sheer volume of it

I play on 48" screen in my face so I would notice this more than anyone.
But still. It is a good, expected improvement. Graphics were just already pretty good.
