Extra grass detail! Guys!
Did you know that Flower was coming to PlayStation 4? I guess I did, technically, but I've since completely forgotten -- until now. Sony Santa Monica director of technology Tim Moss has been tweeting about the new version and has had good things to share:
"Playing Flower on PS4 today. The return of 60 fps games for this generation is making me ecstatically happy. A pretty magical experience." Asked about improvements to visual fidelity and frame rate, Moss said there's "1080p, 60 [frames per second], lots of nice AA and extra grass detail. It's *really* pretty."
Somehow, I didn't play Flower until this year, long after people had stopped talking about it. And going in without expecting too much -- I almost entirely avoided those "Is it a real game?" discussions in 2009 and the years since -- I enjoyed the title. Not all of it, mind you, but most of it. I'll want to play the new version on PS4 by the time I eventually get the console.
