          I don't know why digital foundry are flabbergasted by particles moving that shitty effect is very cheap because those particles are simply sprites and not volumetric fluids

            It's cool that Xbox can now deliver 60fps in a game, without making it look like a last gen game.

              Its just a cinematic trailer. They rarely ever represent the final product. It's merely concept art

                    Is it against the law punishable by unpersoning if you have blonde people in modern games?

                        Guess I'm in the minority here but I'm not really impressed. Looks about as good as like Killzone Shadowfall, with something like Death Stranding looking legions better while also being open world. Not seeing any kind of next gen leap here. Guess it makes sense if it's also going to be on OG Xbox One.

                            I don't think the graphics on this trailer are good and indicative of next-gen graphics AT ALL. The character models, their skin, the lighting on their teeth, it looks very artificial. At 3:27 we can see a direct comparison with a game from 2015, and I think it actually looks better on Halo 5.

                                      Hm... As long as devs make the game up from scratch, its no problem hitting that sweet 60fps 1080p on the X. Hell,even som games run at 60fps 1440p (like vanishing off ethan carter) so i think 120fps on the new Xbox in fullhd is possible, but 60 fps 4k with raytracing, that i must see to belive 👌

There is shallow depth of field describing a very fast fast focus fall off do to a large aperture setting on the lens. And then there is bokeh. Which just describes the way the out of focus areas of an image looks.

That xbox isn't finalized but it's their target so it will be somewhere in that area. I hope the xbox and playstation will be relatively the same power and graphics wise I want to have both consoles alongside my PC! Haha
