    I'm getting more vram usage than that. I think the lowest I've seen is around 900. Usually its more around the 1200 range.

    Anyway, I just died for the first time. Alien didn't even show up on my motion tracker. Just dropped out of the ceiling on me while I was avoiding those damn Androids.

    I've just checked Nvidia inspector and there's a profile there with SLI enabled so I guess it should work... downloading the game now so will know soon!!!

    this would indicate yes it does, look single 780 vs dual. 109fps vs 200fps.

    Might pick it up in sale with the DLC! Watched a mate playing it for about an hour and it really doesn't look anything special, so glad I didn't get sucked into the hype and held off on the pre-order, is this ACM 2?

    This game is getting good reviews from all around. Seems to be much better than Aliens Colonial crap.

    I got the PS4 version today and played it for about 1.5 hours, just past the first Alien encounter and onto the next level.

    So far, I've not been that impressed to be honest and they say that first impressions unfortunately last. The story has been completely linear, there's been lots of restarting generators and crawling through vents, nothing really exciting or gripping. I guess it is to be expected that it would start slowly but I expected that to be 30 minutes top. Honestly, I was getting starting to get bored and it doesn't help that the story cutscenes run like ****...literally at like what seems like 15 fps...it isn't just one them either but all the cutscenes have chronic slowdown. Not only that but the game crashed on me with error CE-34878-0 (yup, that one, only my second admittedly for a game) while it was loading the next level. That wouldn't have been so bad but the game did not auto-save so when I resumed my game I had to replay everything from the last savepoint. The next time I died just seconds before the next level loaded because for some reason the Alien saw me whereas it hadn't previously. Cue another reload and a replay yet again but this time I was able to save the game and call it a night.

    So, yes, as I said, my first impressions are not favourable alas and I hope the game does get better because so far this feels an awful lot like Outlast with an Alien license. The thing is though that Outlast didn't take 1.5 hours to get going and it didn't have cutscenes with uber-bad slowdown either. The game definitely lacks polish on PS4, kind of wish I'd bought it for PC to be honest... [​IMG]

    P.S. How come none of the reviews mentioned the bad slowdown in the cutscenes?

    Played as much as u on PC, as u can see it runs around 130+fps, didn't measure but since i have 120hz monitor i can ez say it runs above 120fps.

    I see ur frustration and u right, the save system is bad, suppose to make more horrorish but it give more trouble, the Alien seems very cute though.

    I think it a good game with excellent Alien atmosphere but i hope they do something to the save system.
