NBA 2K VR Version Available Revealing 13 New Achievements


The VR has seen neglection from most sports video games genre till now. 2K sports has announced the release of VR version for NBA 2K17 for the Play Station 4 . The virtual reality version of NBA 2K17 includes series of minigames for $14.99 now available on PlayStation 4, Samsung Gear VR and HTC Vive.

Instead of a virtual reality version of the game. Gamers are getting a different type of game narrated by NBA 2K17’s game’s cover athlete Paul George.

Players play a series of timed challenges once in the game: three-point shootout mode and the buzzer beater and more. Also, attaining Gatorade boosts in the game will allow you to earn attribute points.

The trailer looks impressive and it’s fair to say that VR will make a perfect addition to the sports game series. With virtual reality sports games becoming more frequent we might run into a few problems. One of the problems we’ll face is virtual reality sports games with current technology limits the gamers ability to become stimulated once inside virtual reality. Since current technology can not beat the realism of playing basketball in real life. With that being said, if NBA 2K17 can not provide accurate virtual reality in the way a player interacts with the world. Another problem we might encounter is sports game we are playing will become apparent that it’s no longer stimulated our needs for a digital version of what having a basketball career would be like.

Things to Consider Before Purchasing PS4 Pro

PS4 Pro
PS4 Pro

Recently Sony officially released the PS4 Pro after being unveiled back in early September, just a month before the release of Sony’s PS4 VR headset. Three years prior to today the PS4 console had been at a price of $399.99 still a $100 cheaper than the Xbox One, however, to your average casual gamer the price is still quite high, as of right now the current pricing of upgrading to the Pro is $399.99. So say you are on a tight budget like me with thoughts of upgrading consoles in the future while minimizing that god awful buyers regret well, here’s where we consider if the PROS outweigh the CONS!

Gamers seek PS4 Pro’s performance.

Performance is what gamers are really looking for when considering a console, I mean a company could release the most beautiful, luxurious gold plated console and although it would appeal to the eyes if it doesn’t perform well enough to run modern games then forget it. In today’s age of gaming, the ability to produce strong graphics along with a reliable well performing system is standard, the PS4 proved itself to be that how much more could the PS4 Pro push compared to its three-year-old predecessor?

Below are two videos which compare both the PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim in a stress test and a frame rate comparison.
Stress Test, footage provided by DigitalFoundry

From what we can observe the PS4 Pro offers better frame rates by 10-15 frames more per second, though not always being able to maintain the 60fps benchmark.

Frame rate test, footage provided by DigitalFoundry.

During the frame rate test, it seems like the PS4 Pro at times ran the remastered games quite similar to the PS4, there are some noticeable improvements but nothing mind blowing.

Visually, the PS4 Pro is your choice, assuming you own a 4K TV. A number of PS4 Pro 4K native titles have already been revealed for future release they include Bound, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, and The Last Of Us Remastered. By the looks of a list posted on Reddit, most of these titles should be running at 60fps.
The full list can be found here, PlayStation 4 Pro 4K Games List.

With these things considered the PS4 Pro’s apparent potential lies in Virtual Reality. The headset which sits at $1,200 for the bundle and $399.99 for the headset alone offers a sharper and crisp experience when using it along with the Pro. So should you go ahead and go buy the new console? Well, in my opinion, I’d wait until the price goes down to a more reasonable amount, the improvements and 4K experience as nice as it does not win me over. Overall deciding if the Pro is worth buying or not depends on whether you enjoy the VR experience more than your typical controller and TV setup. If you’ve got the funds and really care about the improvements visually with slight performance boost the PS4 Pro could rightfully suit you!

PlayStation 4 Pro Games Experiencing Framerate Issues On Some Titles


In recent PS4 news Eurogamer has done gamers a favor and took an exclusive look into PlayStation 4 Pro’s performance, and what they found will surprise us all. The vast majority of PlayStation 4 Pro enhanced games happen to run fine at higher resolutions, up to 4K with more advanced anti-aliasing and other visual enhancements. The problems begin to present their self in a few games, Skyrim and The Last of Us have fallen short of the demonstrated framerate. Resulting in framerates falling short of their initial target, framerates of 30fps and 60fps when running at 1080P. Eurogamer has discovered an unusual mixed result with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Some scenes are presenting a worst framerate while others are showing better framerates on the PlayStation 4 Pro than the regular PlayStation 4.

PlayStation 4 Pro Games Experience Framerate Issues Across Multiple Titles.

For most gamers having their game run at a decent stable framerate is more important than graphical enhancements. According to Eurogamer, Sony’s own developer’s standards state that the PlayStation 4 Pro frame rates should be met or exceeded past the PlayStation 4. Sony has then responded to Eurogamer’s claims, saying :”We are aware of the issue and currently investigating.” Hopefully, these games can be fixed soon and the PlayStation 4 buyers receive what they have paid for across all their titles they own.

Mafia 3 on PC is Locked to 30FPS

Mafia 3 on PC is Locked to 30FPS
Mafia 3 on PC is Locked to 30FPS

If you are a fan of the Mafia franchise, then you will be very disappointed to know that the latest installment, Mafia 3 on PC is locked to 30fps. This is a shocking news for many considering it is a game released in 2016 where PC and consoles have evolved to the point that 30fps is not acceptable. Even though many users believed that the lock would apply to the review version that was sent to publications, it has been confirmed that the Steam/retail version will arrive while locked at 30fps.

The news is not well received since the Hangar 13 did not release any public review copies. Many gamers believe that the reason the company did not release any review of the triple A title was due to the lock. It is predicted that the game is the final release copy, and this would be a significant issue that will mean many gamers will avoid buying the game. Currently, a large number of negative posts have shown on steam with many buyers stating that they will not purchase the game unless the game studio decides to fix the issue.

The issue of games being locked to 30fps is not something new. Many of the latest games need some serious computing power to play well. Mafia 3 is not an exception as it will need very reasonable specs to enjoy the game. However, it is not valid to say that the game has been locked at 30fps to ensure that it plays well in many computers considering that the review version was played on a PC with some decent specs. However, all we can do is hope that 2K and Hangar 13 will heed to the demands by loyal fans and release an update soon.

The news about the low frame was first revealed by Andy Kelly from PC Gamer who was trying out the review copy. Even after reducing the screen resolution to 720p, the game was still locked at 30fps. However, Hangar 13 have already confirmed that they will fix the issue with an update in the near future. Furthermore, they also promised to include some post-launch tweaks on PC that allows gamers to have more control over the experience in the game. Until then, gamers have to make do with the 30fps.

Since the PC game has not been released officially, there is time for the game developer to release a patch to fix the issue. Having the patch released on the day of release is possible. The game is slated for release on October 7 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
