Gaming News Video

In the wake of E3, Sony sent over high quality 4K versions of their trailers, allowing us to get a closer, more granular look at how PlayStation 4 Pro is set deliver the next wave of first-party exclusives for owners of ultra HD displays. Technologies like checkerboarding and temporal injection persist and in all cases, the results are impressive. And that’s a good thing, as these techniques – or evolved versions of them – are likely to be a component of games designed for the next generation of consoles. By extension, what that also means is that marketing a new PlayStation or Xbox as a ‘true 4K’ console, or pushing developers to maximise pixel-counts first and foremost, may not be the best idea.
