The first time I bought a new console, I was sold on the idea that I could upgrade my games to run on new hardware.
My new console would support the next-gen Xbox One and Playstation 4, and I could pick up my new Xbox 360 console at the same time.
But my excitement quickly dissipated when I realised I could’t play my games on the new console’s built-in, HDR-enabled visuals.
The fact that it was possible to run my older console games on my new PS4 and Xbox One console, but not on my old PC, caused some of the biggest headaches in my life.
I bought new hardware that was a full decade older than the consoles I loved so much, and it was a problem.
This is the main problem that the PS4’s launch has faced: its HDR compatibility is limited.
The standard PS4 console has a 4K OLED display and an upgraded 1080p TV capable of playing HDR content at 30 frames per second, but it’s not compatible with HDR content on the PS5 or Xbox One.
This means that the console cannot play HDR content from Netflix or Amazon Prime Instant Video on its HDR screen, as well as games that use HDR content to deliver a more immersive experience.
The problem is exacerbated by the fact that HDR-compatible games are not fully supported by the PSVR.
There are currently a handful of games that can only be played in HDR mode on the Xbox One, PS4, and PS4 Pro, and many others that are not yet available on PS4.
But the fact is, those games are available on a very limited number of consoles, and the PS VR’s built in HDR support is not yet ready to go to every platform.
This limited availability of HDR-capable games is a problem that’s been in the PS ecosystem since launch, and one that the company hopes to rectify with a firmware update that will be coming soon.
It is, however, a big ask for developers, as most games only support the PS3 and 4 versions of the game.
The PlayStation VR itself is not the only game that needs to be updated, as the PS Store also needs to update to support HDR content, as do the Xbox Store and PlayStation Mobile stores.
There is, of course, the potential for HDR-ready games to appear on the PlayStation Store soon, and while this is an important step in the right direction, it’s a step that the industry needs to take much sooner than this.
The PS4 has a lot of issues to correct before it can be truly HDR-proof, and there is no reason why the PS One and PS Vita games should not be compatible with the next generation of hardware.
This problem is not limited to the PS1.
Developers are also facing a similar issue with HDR-supported games on PS VR.
The first-generation PS VR only supported HDR content with Dolby Vision, but the HDR content needed to be tweaked to work on PS 4 and Xbox 10.
HDR is the most common form of content to support, but games like Destiny 2 and The Division, which have been HDR-mastered on PlayStation VR, don’t have HDR support.
This is an issue that developers should be aware of, as there are no easy fixes that can be made to address this problem.
We will have more on the future of HDR content as more developers start to work with HDR on the consoles.
