Sony finally revealed the much rumored PlayStation 4 Pro during PlayStation Meeting. The internet is just talking about the console since its reveal, and the developers think that PlayStation 4 Pro is a game changer for the industry.
After the event Sony showcased PlayStation Livecast, during which developers shared their opinion about Sony’s new console. Chris Reese, Director of Sony Bend Studio, was also their and shared his thoughts on the PlayStation Pro.
According to him it is really exciting to be working on PlayStation Pro for their upcoming game Days Gone, and the console provides an unmatched visual clarity that has never been seen before in a game.
For Days Gone, it’s really exciting working on the PlayStation 4 Pro. What it’s really providing us now is visual clarity that we haven’t been able to see before. The details in the environment really pop now, the character details, the color, the vibrancy of it…It’s just amazing.
He further added that when the first time they got the game to run on PlayStation 4 Pro, it was a game changing experience.
When we first got it up and running, it was a game changer, a jaw dropping experience. The increase in resolution was great, all the detail that the artists had been working was now on display.
He also explained that Days Gone is an open world game and obviously players will be going in dark interiors and bright exteriors. The developers did a lot of work to make the game look good on regular TV, but when HDR is connected it all becomes realistic.
It’s an open world environment, so we have a lot of scenes where you’re going in dark interiors and then bright exteriors. Trying to manage that exposure in lighting on an SDR TV, a regular TV, is tough – we do a lot of work to make that feel right. But then, when we put in on an HDR TV it all becomes natural, it’s like watching out a window from your office – which in our case, for Bend, is what you see in the game.
Days Gone is in development at Sony Bend, while there is no release date yet announced for the game it will release exclusively for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Pro.
