Metal Gear Solid 5 PS4 Pro Update Improves Resolution

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is currently one of the free PS Plus games of the month, and if you haven’t tried it out yet, there’s now another reason to jump in: Konami has finally released a patch that enhances the game on PS4 Pro. The patch was announced on Monday on Twitter, and then it launched a day later. It’s a relatively modest update, but it still makes an already good-looking game even better. While you won’t see vastly overhauled textures, the game does run at a ...

Here’s What It Takes to Run Games at 16K Resolution

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. For most of us, game resolutions increase fairly slowly, one periodic monitor purchase at a time. Ten years ago, 1080p was the new hotness; I was personally using a 22-inch Acer with a 1680×1050 resolution, and wondering what all the fuss was about with 1080p compared with 720p. Now, 4K displays are becoming more common, with additional support for features like HDR, upcoming support for FreeSync, and even a whisper of a promise OLED technology ...

Sources: Bosh, Heat to part after resolution

2:13 PM ET The Miami Heat, Chris Bosh and the players’ association have tentatively agreed to a resolution that would allow all parties to move on, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.

Sources: Knicks, Oakley move toward resolution

5:08 PM ET Charles Oakley remains banned indefinitely from Madison Square Garden, but there has been “some momentum toward a resolution” between Oakley and Knicks owner James Dolan, thanks to recent conversation between both sides, sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN’s Ian Begley on Monday. It is unclear whether Oakley and Dolan have talked directly since Oakley was ejected from Madison Square Garden and subsequently arrested last Wednesday.

Nioh on PS4 lets you choose between faster frame rate or higher resolution

Over a decade ago, Koei announced a game based on an unproduced Kurosawa script called “Oni.” The game was shown off in the mid-aughts as “Ni-Oh,” Koei merged with Tecmo, and then an entire console generation slipped by. We went long stretches without hearing much of anything about this game, but it was evidently put under the tutelage of Team Ninja at some point. 2015 rolled around, and it finally showed up as “Nioh” at the Tokyo Game Show. As it turns out, this game really does exist, and a ...

New surrounding the PlayStation 4’s upcoming update (codenamed Neo) continues to surface, and our understanding of what the new platform will offer is rapidly firming up. While these unofficial leaks should be treated as rumors until formally confirmed by Sony itself, the fact that multiple publications are willing to speak firmly on-record suggests that high-level sources are deliberately feeding information to the press (and yes, this is absolutely a thing that happens). Eurogamer has a full breakdown of the latest details, but here are some of the major highlights: All ...

The Final Fantasy XV demo, despite dynamic resolution, can’t deliver a solid frame rate

Last week, Square-Enix announced a giant multimedia blitz around the upcoming release of Final Fantasy XV. An anime series, a CG movie, and the release date were all unveiled at a big event, but the biggest news was the release of a completely new demo that’s available to anyone with a PS4 or Xbox One. Unfortunately, it’s disappointing in nearly every way. If you move through the demo at a steady clip, there’s about 30 minutes worth of activities on offer. There are a few hidden objects here and there ...
