They'll just think oh well see no one cares lets all do that now it's so much easier and cheaper to fake it.
And nothing is special about this games audio. It's a joke compared to Shadow of the tomb raiders Atmos, which is probably the best gaming audio ever.
There has to be something more behind this.
The fact that SONY backed this game so much that they make a PS4 Pro bundle out of it (to specifically utilize the PS4 Pro hardware) and the fact that the game doesn't really utilize anything the Pro offers over the standard, makes SONY look like fools as well.
I'd imagine Sony execs would be all over this to remedy the situation as well.
In the "console" battle, to not have an exclusive, and to create a bundle like this to sway people to use the PS4 over the Xbox (even though both have bad HDR), and to have the PS4 pro not even have a matched / higher resolution, means anyone who didn't pre-order the system bundle and read about this issue will 100% go the Xbox route instead.
If i was a Sony exec, the first mention of something like this would be a visit to R* headquarters for immediate resolution.
My guess is that they had true HDR implementation for both xbox and ps4 and matched resolution on PS4 pro with Xbox One X, but due to performance issues and running out of time (and the headlines regarding crunching) left R* with no choice but to temporarily disable true HDR and lower the rez in PS4 to get it out the door with the hope of resolving the issues post-launch with a longer time-table.
I can't imagine another scenario. They had to make a call to delay it extremely last minute or get it out and update it through future patches.
I for one have the game installed, but i'm holding off on playing until these are resolved. I have Spiderman I can finish anyway in the meantime. But i want the full experience when I start.
