I find this to be really petty on Microsoft's side.

Either release the game on the PS4 + PS5 or don't.
Doing it like this makes it look like they're only making this to get dishonest internet points from those inevitable DigitalFoundry comparison videos.

PS5 doesn't handle BC the same way though. You see similar discrepancies playing Cyberpunk on the new gen, for example. XBOne games can be aware of the the new hardware where PS5 ones just kind of get "uncapped".

Gosh, people would rather not have the game rather than loosing a freaking Digital Foundry comparison.

FYI even if they made full fat PS5 version, it would still loose DF comparison.

Might as well get to play the game any not worry about frivolous things?

Companies break Kickstarter promises all the time. I know this was through Fig, but surely MS could have easily just yoinked the game from PS if they were petty?
The game left kickstar ages ago. If they had choice they would. Its fair game. Don't need to make excuse for them.

It has been said million times: because of Kickstarter, they are only obliged to make PS4 version. Actually them unlocking 60 FPS for PS5 is already a nice gesture that they didn’t really need to do.

This right here. PS5 owners should just be glad the game is backwards compatible at all—it’s not like it’s a requisite for any new titles coming out…

I mean, Microsoft could have released this ONLY for the PS4 with no Backwards Compatibility…

I'm pretty sure some of the comments in this thread are meant as 'tongue in cheek', i hope so anyway.

Like I said fair enough. I'm pro exclusivity.
My beef is with people pretending my guy flip flop Phil is pro consumer will bring games for everyone because he is a nice
Guy.

Yeah, be nice to bunch of savages that are PlayStation fans.

No thanks. Phil is nice enough.

They actually couldn't. Playstation demands that any game that works on ps4 needs to run on ps5. Let's not pretend they had any choice

I stand corrected on thinking that the game doesn’t have a native HDR.

But I don’t think it really changes anything. If MS didnt buy DF, all systems would get a compromised version of the game. I vaguely remember reading an interview with Schafer where he said that MS involvement helped them put content (I think he was talking about bosses) that they simply couldn’t afford with the initial budget they had. So, no matter how you look at it, we will get a better, more polished game now. And the fact that XS consoles get a little extra is not really an issue.



Shhh, don't speak of those things here, we're supposed to be spreading hate towards MS, follow the script. :pie_zipper:
