Did you just start it?

I'm helping my fiancé in Minecraft and I'm actually having fun.
Someone call the police.
Yes 2 all.
Got a source for that? Digital Foundry mentions none of allthatshitbyyou.word
How you like the gameplay?
Xbox has that too though.It's right there in the PS5 display settings. You can set HDR to "on when supported" or "always on". It makes the TV always go into HDR mode and applies some sort of HDR "effect" regardless of whether the game has HDR support or not. In my experience it improves the color depth and makes the visuals "pop" a little more, though it could probably vary depending on the TV. DF probably had that feature turned off though.
Anyway the gameplay is great. I haven't really gotten any further yet than I did when I first played it, but I liked it then too. Excited to finally get deeper into the game.
It does for back compat games.
When you say back compat are you talking about like Xbox One games, or Xbox 360 and older?
If it's older ones I'm assuming those are games where there's other tweaking going on, like increasing the resolution or framerate from what the game originally had. I doubt that it works with ALL of them though.
Xbox has auto-HDR which is a completely different thing than PS forcing games into an HDR 'container.' Auto-HDR uses machine learning to actually create the effect of native HDR but it doesn't work for all games
I'm pretty sure Xbox's regular HDR mode works like Playstation's 'HDR on when supported' mode
Yeah, this. And ordinarily I'd be pretty skeptical of anything that tries to "fake" an HDR effect on SDR content. But idk...whatever the PS5 is doing sure looks like a definitive improvement over the SDR modes on everything I've seen it on.
Edit: some of this could also depend on your particular display as well.
I'm surprised its not HDR on xbox, I coulda swore it was but then I read that there was a lot of confusion about HRD being included on the console port vs PC when it came out a year ago.
I just switched my ps5 from 'HDR on when supported' to 'always on' while looking at Solar Ash and I think I saw a little bit of a difference. Might be slightly darker and more saturated
It could be forcing a different color space - my Samsung QN90A has the option to use its own native color space and that makes everything look way different because it essentially shows more/different colors than what comes from whatever you're watching
