Shadow of the Colossus on base PS4

Shadow of the Colossus on base PS4

Some people expressed concerns regarding the base PS4 version of Shadow of the Colossus, so we got our console back and captured 2 short videos showing bits from the beginning of the adventure. As you'll see, there doesn't seem to be much to complain about.

The PS4 is a very capable console, and the Pro is a very modest 2x upgrade. The xbones have both the best and worst graphics of this console gen, but PS4 is a very happy medium with it's killer exclusives. Thanks to Sony spearheading this Gen even the new Fable game is now possible thanks to what Phil saw HZD accomplish.

Still looks better on my PCSX2 emulator...

Did they really redo the soundtrack, or am I hearing things? If so, that's a sin.

They made them more grand and extended some of them...the original composer was involved.

Only the opening and ending music was remastered. Probably would be really expensive to do the whole ost.

Holy crap lol, no it doesn't. Your PCSX2 upscaled version does not include the magnitude of detailed upgrades like to the landscape geometry.

Watch this video at 480p resolution to get all the versions running at the PS2 versions original resolution. Does that Remake footage look even remotely like the PS2 version?
And playing that PS2 footage at 12K resolution on PCSX2 isn't going to change that either.
For another reference and proof here is SOTC running at 4K on PCSX2 and not looking on any level close to the Remake.

It was a joke, but since you asked. I actually like the grain of the ps2/PCSX2 version, it brings a certain texture to it where it feels like you can reach out and touch the objects rather than shiny, plastic gloss which has the opposite effect.

There are filters you can turn on that work ingame, also film grain was one of the options i think

I'm glad it was a joke because frankly, PCSX2 is no where near even the PS3 version of this game. Sure, you can get 4k60fps on an EMU but you can't get better draw distance, or textures.

Cool, what are the other filters? I particularly like the film one of the PS2 version too. :)

@crookedmind Probably make it known you are joking next time lol.

That’s an improvement to what normally comes out. :P

I can wait to play this game, again. :) Everyone’s giving it glowing reviews, calling it best remaster ever.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's crazy that Fortnite hasn't launched in China yet. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They must allow some early access since FN is still early access, but I guess Daybreak wasn't ready. I wonder how anyone can keep up with Epic. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: it could get a second wind on PS4 on account of there being no PUBG. be good for those who want an alternative to Fortnite. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX PUBG and Fortnite really stole its thunder. And its users. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still.. the life of that game was its early access period. The PC version isn't dead, but it's on life support. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Seems like a missed opportunity for Daybreak. I guess Playstation doesn't really do early access though? They just went 1.0 recently. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: i think it was originally going to be back when they were Sony online entertainment inc. But then Sony dumped them and things changed I guess. (2 Hours ago)
