GSY Video PS4 Xbox One PC

Final Fantasy XV has finally hit the sunny shores of PC gaming, so we have put our GTX 1080 Ti to good use to give you some high quality footage to watch. The 4 Nvidia graphics options available are pretty demanding, but even without them on, maintaining a steady 60 fps frame rate in 4K is not achievable when the rest of the game is set to the highest setting. What we did is we scaled down the 4K resolution to 75% and only left Nvidia Hairworks and Nvidia VXAO on for the first 3 videos, while we deactivated VXAO in the last one but turned on the other 3 (Nividia Hairworks, Nvidia Turf Effects and Nvidia Shadowlibs). Enjoy the footage and let us know what you think of the port.
Update: 2 videos added, showing the HD pack in action this time.

Final Fantasy XV will finally arrive on PC in March but [url=benchmark.finalfantasyxv.com/]you can now try the game's benchmark[/url] to see if your rig can handle one of the 3 graphics modes available (lite, standard and high, just like on consoles). You can choose between 3 resolutions (720p/1080p/4K) and activate HDR on Windows 10. Apparently, the high mode is pretty demanding, even with our INNO3D iChiLL GeForce GTX 1080 Ti X3 Ultra, which is probably because this mode features Nvidia technology such as Turf Effects, HairWorks and Flow. If you plan on playing the game in 4K, be aware that it will probably not run at a steady 60 fps, even in standard mode, so you'll have to make a few compromises or play in Lite mode.

We just received an Xbox One version of Final Fantasy XV so we can finally propose a few videos showing the game on Xbox One X. Inside, you'll see the different graphics modes included in the game, the best option to truly enjoy it still being the High mode from what we've seen. Since we had to start a new adventure, we can only show you the first area of the game, but hopefully, it'll be more than enough to decide which mode you prefer.

Square Enix revleaed the details of the Windows version of Final Fantasy XV that will arrive in early 2018. The title features several GameWorks technology and some capture and share tools. Details inside along with the trailer and screens.

We've been waiting for months for the PS4 Pro patch for Final Fantasy XV and it is now available. Sadly, the game only runs at 60 fps when it can, which we have not even been able to see yet as the game seems more comfortable around 40 something frames per second. No option to lock the famerate at 30 like before if you can't stand a fluctuating framerate (we'll probably have to wait another couple of months for that). The only possibility is then to play with the high quality mode and its horrible frame pacing issues (you didn't expect them to be fixed in this patch, did you?). Well, well...

If you expected to read a full (or even partial) review of Final Fantasy XV on Gamersyde, you're in for a big surprise. Indeed, Square-Enix did not consider us worthy of giving you our opinion about the game, so that's why we we were only sent a code today. Thankfully, one of our contacts at a local retailer was kind enough to lend us a PS4 copy last Wednesday, and we have been working hard at preparing a fair amount of videos ever since. Inside, you will find footage from the PS4 version (4k and 1080p) and the base PS4 one, along with a few FPS Analysis videos. We hope you'll be able to do without a full review, especially since the real professionals have their own up by now, which we advise you to check out. When it comes to true HQ videos though, no one can compete with us just yet. Enjoy!

GSY Live PS4 Xbox One

Don't think you'll be able to read our verdict concerning Final Fantasy XV today, for reasons we'll evoke in a few hours. Don't worry though, as we'll have a few videos to share with you. Also, we will be live playing the game tonight if you want to ask us a few questions. If you're interested, be there at 9 p.m. CET for our 30-minute-livestream.

Trailer PS4 Xbox One

All you need to know about Final Fantasy XV in more than eight minutes, this is what Square Enix released today with the 101 trailer (extended cut) and you can find it in good quality inside. A free "Crown Update" will be available at launch (November 29), details about what it brings after the jump.

Since someone asked nicely, here are both the Universe trailer present in the new Final Fantasy XV demo, along with the introduction we forgot last time, including the computer generated sequence introducing the main characters.

Japanese players have been granted a new demo for Final Fantasy XV, allowing them to discover the beginning of the adventure. What's more, this trial version of the long-awaited RPG features 2 graphics mode for PS4 Pro, but also HDR (whose implementation is far from being convincing). The first mode pushes the visual quality while the second proposes a steadier (and higher) framerate. If you don't have a Japanese PSN account and don't want to bother open one, check out our videos.
The demo is also available on Xbox One. It is even simpler to get it as you only have to change your console's region to access the Japanese market.

    jmd749 @KORNdog: I actually like the design, it lends for good ventilation and aesthetically speaking it's in the shape of the Roman numeral for 5, a "V". :P (3 Hours ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I would honestly be surprised if both the next Xbox and ps5 don't just look like simple black plastic boxes. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I can't imagine Sony coming along 10 years too late and adopting that styling when it's clearly not what is considered good design anymore. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog I just look at Sony's consumer design and it doesn't fit at all. Electronics are about clean lines and boxy shapes. Even in the PC space that fuck ugly vent covered alien ware design has fizzled out. (1 Day ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @MrWhite: for the same reason they stuck a big metal.faceplate to the PS4 dev kit? I mean. They could have just made that a plastic box too. (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite It looks like a big dirty wifi router of some sort. Which makes sense if you think about where gaming is going. Especially if they want to make the PSVR2 wireless. (1 Day ago)
