Thief on PS4 will look 'almost identical' to PC version

The PS4 version of Thief will look "really, really close" to the PC version, the game's producer Stephane Roy has claimed, before hinting at a "special feature" that may only be found in the PC version.

Well duh, it may look close, but it's not really. The difference is in the details on PC.

OT: still surprised that they dumped the original voice for Garrett.

ChronoJoe1661d ago

I think he was suggesting they'd look close graphically. So they'd be close on level of detail and such too.

The largest difference will probably be whatever PCs 'special feature' is.

How close is close?

Close is an unquantifiable measure.

For the past 7 years of this generation all I have heard developer PR idiots tell us is that ALL the versions are 'identical'

Clearly this has been nonsense and yet we are expected to believe it. The 360 and Ps3 versions have infamously been quite different in visual and performance aspects of several games and the Pc version is on another level of resolution and performance hardware allowing.

The fact that they even called Pc versions of games identical to the consoles games which is an insult to Pc hardware or their weak effort on a game.

I fully expect the Pc version to exploit more powerful hardware, if it doesnt that would be poor show.

Look at them already talking about 'almost identical' versions for the consoles.

I shake my head that people still listen to this sort of thing without seeing the end product.

PS3 and 360 multiplatform games are basically identical though.

Computersaysno1661d ago (Edited 1661d ago )

They are often similar, but they aren't identical.

The fact that the question usually seeks specifics about will there be problems for one version or another and they just fob people off with saying it'll be the same.

Except there are countless examples of poorer Ps3 versions or poorer 360 version when devs have assured they will be the same. The likes of Mafia 2 or Bayonetta come instantly to mind

Not only that it is obvious the Pc version for years shouldnt be 'identical' as has been claimed in the past.

They should be a lot better for better hardware. UE4 on Ps4 doesnt even look that close to the Pc version which is 9 months older when you actually see the shots full screen!

I guess that some devs would call those shots 'almost identical' but if you have eyes you can see for yourself.

Wait for the final version of thief 4 because there is good reason not to believe them over the history of this generation.

Based on historical generational jumps and the last two gens, I'm gonna say resolution is going to be the biggest difference.


But that's optimized for only one GPU and that's the GTX680. You can't expect any one game to only be optimized one GPU and much less one like that one.
(In other words, Thief will be done around weaker GPUs in mind).

Your reading too much into it. Pixel counting is weak. MariaHelFutura is talking like a rational person. The difference will be minimal, that is what he's saying, it doesn't need to be an exact number for you to be able to understand his point. We're not talking BF3 consoles vs PC here, we're talking Tomb Raider on PS3 vs 360; nearly identical. Only if they're side by side will you be able to tell any difference.

Ya it is almost identical if you play with 30fps and have little to no aa.

"with the high-end PC and next-gen it's going to be really, really close, honestly"

He never touches on detail, he makes it sound like the only difference(if there will be one) would be the inclusion of some special tech, like TressFX or something similar. The fact that the PS4 and "high-end PC" versions look almost identical is impressive.

decrypt1661d ago (Edited 1661d ago )

Most likely Low to mid range PCs will be maxing the game out too. Hence High end PC wont really be required for this sort of game.

You may as well say PS4 will be close to low to mid range PCs.

High end PCs now a days are reserved for multi screen gaming. Sure there are games that do use the hardware, this just wont be one of them. Recent examples include Hitman, Maxpayne 3, Tombraider etc.

It's unreal 3 so the only difference will be the frame rate. PC will be capable of higher resolutions/FPS and multi-monitor support. You guys should wait to compare a UE4 game.

ThichQuangDuck1661d ago

Good because that will probably be my launch game when I do get a PS3. The return of pure stealth and patience gameplay. Yessir

ThichQuangDuck1661d ago

Ha I must have some respect because if I was new I would have just lost all bubbles and have infinite disagrees all for one number

Really close:S
The Witcher 3?
