[VG TECH] Mortal Shell PS5 vs Xbox Series S/X

I expected more out of a game that looks exactly like shit. Either way, it seems like asset loading is where the XSS and XSX dipped.

Weird, considering the dev post. God only know, roll on proper next gen.
VGTech used version 1.000.003 on PS5.

“ The versions tested were 1.000.003 on PS5 and 1.0.1.5 on Xbox Series X|S.”

Seems like there is a 1.000.004 but I won’t pay $30 to confirm it :D

OP is avoiding this like cancer, try to include everything next time:

Texture streaming is faster on PS5 than Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S http://bit.ly/3rzcVut Note that these screenshots are right after loading and these are not representative of how the game generally looks on the Xbox consoles.

Struggling with low res textures in a BC game?
Shit Bo this is a trash low effort post even for you. Just wow.

I hate how these comparison threads (which is all console war really) are the most active on this forum.

So again Xbox fans bragging about higher res with low quality textures.
While PS5 pushing higher quality textures.

Low quality textures still gonna look like shit at 4k.
If you could read (it's literally in the post you're quoting), you'd realize that this is only for a split second after loading the game. The game has the same texture quality in all versions.

Is this a fact or your educated guess? If the latter, I strongly recommend we get a second opinion on this. Given your track record we should plan our next move very carefully. 😟

In the official PS Store page of the game, it says that it is missing PS4 features but it's "playable" on PS5, and asks to go to the BC page for more info:

This is just a standard text some intern copy/pasted to fill the screen with words. Maybe you should consider contacting somebody more close to the project. 🤔 I heard a lot of devs are happy to be corrected about their own games by some random dude on twitter. 😳

Got this expensive bitch:



And starting my studio in the near future! That should make nature photography/videography more sustainable, hopefully.
Awesome. Send me some links. I really enjoyed that old tree video.
I used to be big into photography years ago when my kids were still cute(teenage boys now). Prime's for life. I used to shoot 4x5 for nature because apparently I'm a douche haha. Super good luck man. Hope it works out great. And yeah share some links you live in a beautiful area.

It's like taking the first frame of checkerboard and saying that's what the game looks like.

And yes, primes are wonderful indeed! Especially for faster lenses and low light, gonna get some for astrophography/videography and probably night videos/photos of animals.

And here's my youtube channel!


I actually sold my new DJI Mavic Air 2 to buy the a7S III, but already have plans for newer versions of DJI that can shoot 10-bit 4K@60fps instead of 8-bit, hopefully. Also if you don't think you wanna spend too much on gear, you can do wonders with Osmo Pocket 2!

Detail > Resolution
Mostly true, but it also depends how much detail and how many pixels.

I can't look now, do we actually see textures pop-ins?

And that's another win for Microsoft's approach to BC (the tools for those who like to use them as an excuse when they lose).

Damn Bo, i know you take this stuff seriously but thats just being disingenuous. Thats some textures taking longer to load, NOT lower quality textures. Unless you think the XSX version has N64 level textures lol.
He took the time to state it didn't represent how the game looks once they're loaded.

Still, this is an annoyance and I would notice this before resolution difference for any of the "next gen" versions, but the thing I would notice the most is the middle of the road framerate on series S.

Should make font bigger so people can read. I'll edit.

It's an annoyance for sure, but it has nothing to do with performance, since the game performs the same AFTER the textures loaded, so it's just a texture streaming issue that can be addressed with a patch that adjusts the balance between load and stream.

So could the fixed resolution on the PS5 (I know I m bringing the PS5 to strawman your argument).

I might have to watch some auctions cause I see some DJI drones go all the time for cheap.

I live on the East coast of Canada. Also a beautiful part of the world. Would be fun to show it off more.

If this is considered a native port worthy of these consoles then just go ahead and cancel the whole generation.

It would look gorgeous in both white snow and green in Summer! The DJI Mavic Air 2 is so easy and smart, and priced very cheap for how capable it is! Better be the combo though for the 3 batteries and multi-charger at least.

Sure, it's all in the balance. XSX will take longer to load and PS5's resolution can be adjusted at the expense of not having a perfectly locked framerate.
Probably if they waited like 2 seconds to show the screen on Xbox all the textres would be there... But we would have to fight about the load times then 🤬.

I'm really curious what would be the actual variable resolutions in a like for like setup. But then we would have to fight over those few pixels.

does the PlayStation store say that for any other games?

The resolution is locked because it is using the same locked PS4 Pro resolution.

The Dev even stated that the game will run in fixed 1800p in PS5 but somehow it is not running right now.

It is not just about PS5... Series is locked at DRS 1800p just because Xbox One X is locked at DRS 1800p... it should be at least DRS 2160p..

No checked AC Valhalla and other games that work perfectly on PS5, they all have that statement. I think they've added it after CP2077 fiasco?

yeah but could they have forgot to update it? After the ps5 patch. Seems a bit odd it got a patch but still says that

Just to confirm, this is sitting at the levels below:
Base res for PS4 on 4k is 2560×1440, upscaled to 4k (3840×2160)
Base res for PS5 is 3200×1800, upscaled to 4k (3840×2160)
There’s a big improvement here, especially paired with the new textures and framerate – let me know if you feel the difference. +

They forgot to click save when editing the file or something lol.

Lol weird. Looks like they messed up, should be as stated but isn't.

Too late now though the Rikys of this world have already celebrated their huge bc win 🙄

Pop in has nothing to do with SSD's. It's a GPU (or in some cases CPU) latency issue as the scene is drawn
Pop in where there is a range where drawing of certain elements stops after a distance may do that, but I think people are talking about asset streaming where the level will be loaded enough to get something displaying on screen, but still waiting on some assets/textures to finish loading so in their place is textureless or very low res textures until they are loaded. That kind of pop in (maybe should have a different name) is reliant on drive speed/latency.

Could be a hell lot of fun. But you should rather put that money in your piggy bank. 💰💰💰Returnal will drop soon and I know PS5 owners who've been saving their pocket money for months to afford it. 🤯
