Why did not NHL 18 get 4K update to PS4 Pro ??

Why did not NHL 18 get 4K update to PS4 Pro ?? When the Xbox One X get 4 update??

  • Because need does it not one, include it’s on already disc launch since.
  • Yup, the Pro has been out for over a year now, which there was plenty of time to develop the game for it in 4K. NHL 18 came out in September and the One X came out in November, so they didn't have the "technology" in place yet when the game was made.

    Had this not been EA's "red-headed step-child" game they may have had the 4K available the day the X was released. Just speculation there.

  • Wait, you mean to tell me they released two different versions of the game, but adding a third would be too much work? I just don't understand it, I mean Dark Souls got lambasted for making a really bad port of that game to PC. However that didn't stop them from coming back with the second and third and making them great. Kinda, the second is the one most people don't like.

    However they didn't just give up because they made a bad port. EA made a bad port of NHL 09 and subsequently gave up trying to make a good port of their game for some odd reason.

    If they can make and release two different versions of the game one for xbox in sd and one for ps in hd they can easily make another for pc with minimal effort.

    Wait, you mean to tell me you've made 1200 posts in a couple months, pushing an agenda in almost all of them that no one on said forum cares about, for a game that you don't even play?

    There's a reason why people here don't like you, eh bud? :kissing_heart:

    OMG, that is just cold lol
  • I also wish for NHL PC because the modding community has more talent and knows more about hockey than anyone at EA ever will but it’s never going to happen.....give it up already.

    Change doesn't usually happen without some kind of push somewhere along the lines. I wonder what the NHL series would look like if the games looked like they were created by devs that had half the passion for quality game-play that some of our forum members do.

    I guess in the end as long as the HUT players are happy and spending money then that's all that matters, right EA?

    Hopefully they add HDR support to all versions of the game next year. It is in Madden and FIFA, but I also understand implementing HDR is more difficult than bumping the resolution.

    For example, Halo 5, which came out in 2015, added variable 4K resolution and made some other enhancements for Xbox One X, but did not add HDR support because it required too much work.
