@szlifier: I noticed that a while ago and I honestly thought it was a feature!

P.S. there are still weird instances of this occuring:

@theshrubber: Well Driveclub was such a Hot Mess that it prevented Sony from delivering on their announcement promise of a PS+ version of that game despite it basically being the centrepiece of their PS+ pitch for PS4, it has to win IMO.

@audiobusting: The OGRE engine is doing things behind the scenes to the model, I've only used OGRE for about 6 months so I'm not fully up on it but it is definitely doing LOD.

Also the textures (which are awful) are covering up some of the nasty stuff, just looking at the wireframe you can see it isn't as smooth.

@mosespippy: That's certainly an interesting way to look at it, and also very valid, I chose the word 'better', and told you to make a snap judgement, as I wanted to keep it as subjective as possible since I already have most of the objective proof I need.

So far I feel this will make for a more interesting report than I first thought.

@bollard: It's fine, I was already writing about how my hypothesis has been disproved.

@fluxwavez: @mooseymcman:

Would you say that given the other differences between them like file size and time invested, that A is still preferable?

And about the random peaks and valleys, that is something that is definitely going into my "disadvantages" pile, most of the terrain the generator seems to spit out looks like that, a big part of my report so far has been:

"Here are the good parts of procedural generation, but here's why you will always need an artist to touch it up".

Region locking is enough to make me not want to buy a PS4. I thought we were done with that shit.

It's not region locked?

Do PS4 games have regional locks?

In general, neither digital nor disc-based games will be region locked, but PlayStation recommends that all users purchase games at the region of their residence to guarantee the best overall experience and customer service. In certain instances, a software publisher may choose to region lock a game title for specific reasons, but Sony Computer Entertainment expects these instances to be uncommon.

Look at that last sentence. It's entirely up to the publisher wether they want to region-lock their game or not. Many large publishers probably will.

That is exactly how it worked with the PS3:

"All PlayStation 3 games except for one are region free. Even though publishers could choose to region-lock specific games based on a mechanism that allows for the game to query the model of the PS3, none did so during the first six years after the launch of PS3. The first game to be region-locked on PS3 is Persona 4 Arena"


Big publishers could have done it last time 'round but didn't, Sony's policy on region-locking hasn't changed.
