playstation 4 pro

Posted 2 years ago

 Hi

Can you tell me, will the playstation pro enhance the graphical appearance and performance of the game?

Posted 2 years ago

 They won't tell you, but they did hint at some improvements. I'm getting PRO so hope so. Sony obviously don't want to shout about it too much for fear of putting normal PS4 owners off PSVR (don't be it works great) BUT clearly they need to also realise that real VR fans don't mind spending a bit more again on a better system so long as we have real improvements.


Last I heard was the GPU in PRO has some VR boosts (similar to Nvidia Pascal) which could if true, and if used right, give us massive boosts in speed which can be used elsewhere on better graphics, AA, Supersampling and lighting etc.


I like Battlezone, had a blast online already though I find it quite complex so am taking it slow. If they could do supersampling, AA, and maybe increase the contrast a bit that would be awesome. I think the only thing that stands out to me is the washed out look sometimes, so perhaps a bit less ambient lighting and more punchy contrast (like the pre release vids) would have been nice to offset the HMD's own 'wash' (Mura).


Talking of which, on VIVE which I had they tried hard to correct MURA (but imo failed) what causes this? it's different from screen door effect (which is good on PSVR) but Mura you can see when in the tank in the dark, or on rush of blood on the dark levels, but I don't recall ever getting this on my rift DK2? It can't be to avoid black smear can it? never going true black cos I've seen true blacks (and black smear ) on other PSVR things so not sure what gives, but I'd love them, or devs if they could to reduce the MURA effect (the grainy linen overlay on dark scenes). Unless it's part of the hardware. Still as said I don't recall DK2 having it so...

Yeah, we can't really talk about the Pro at the moment, at least not in any detail. I'll get in trouble if I promise something that we can't get working in the end. I can say that, since the resolution of the headset doesn't change, any Pro upgrades we may make can only do so much to improve the visuals at the end of the day.


I had to look up the term 'mura' (you learn something new every day) but I can confirm there is a requirement for us to avoid black smear. I don't think that's what you're seeing, however - the 'film grain'-like effect is, I believe, an artifact of the screen door effect reduction process Sony are using. Again, I can't really go into detail on how I know that, but I'm confident that's the case.

 ok thanks for the reply. The other HMDs do it too, but frankly I was fine with DK2 SDE and all cos it had stunning blacks and no god rays (thankfully PSVR doesn't have god rays!). I assume they use a filter over the screen for SDE which may or may not be as clear as we'd like. I dunno. Still all very cool though and obviously the tech will get better in the years to come!

 No problem. I think it's fair to say that there's no one 'perfect' headset out there yet based on the ones we've seen. It'll be fascinating to see what the next generation of tech is like.

 I agree, have also owned VIVE (amazing tracking but awful comfort imo and also loads of god rays) and tried Rift CV1 (better on comfort but worse on lens flares and other issues + no decent VR controls till touch, finally, ships) - PSVR even with its flaws seems about the best compromise right now for price, comfort, lens quality and software support. It's early days and am hoping everyone raises the bar for Gen 2.

 Hi guys, on PRO battlezone is crisper and better looking overall. For me its really that edge for reason to buy PRO. Good job with that supersampling rebellion!

 Glad you approve. Look out for the improved dynamic lighting in the cockpit too.
