Impressive.

Just kidding, times are rough when you need to boast about some games that can run at 120fps after almost a decade since their release.

They already had frame pacing issues with 60 fps, imagine this with 120.

I was just thinking: on PC this is at most a config file edit, not something newsworthy.

And I especially love how everybody is throwing "120fps" and "4k" around wrt to next-gen consoles, when it is clear neither console has the HP to do both at the same time without a healthy amount of upscaling.

While it is a marketing gimmick, it is actually also possible to do both 120fps @4K at the same time. Just don't expect even a Xbox360/PS3 level of graphical fidelity. As it is now, the only games I could think off at the top of my head that can do this prolly Minecraft & other 2D/indie games. Other than that, for "normal" games, the offer is just either 4K or 120fps but not both.

Minecraft is set to receive the DXR treatment, so probably not even that...

History repeats... the PS4 was a genuine 1080p 60 FPS machine of destruction. The Xbox too...well... 900p. And both with lots of TAA... oh yeah and half the FPS, if you didn't fall back to 20-25.

But this time... this time its really REALLY fasterest.

The PS3 was fun too. The perfect media center console... that didn't play half the codecs worth a damn, had a browser experience that was worse than the first capacitive smartphone, and a bluray player that broke down in two years.

Lovely machines

I was entertaining the idea of getting a Series X, but as of now there are no games, the same goes for the PS5, worse still we haven't seen any impressive next gen game running, it's pathetic.

Considering the popularity of the series I'd say it's newsworthy.
