A video which takes a look at the PC version of Crysis 3 versus new footage of Killzone Shadow Fall.
Shadow Fall is a launch title but looks better IMO !
Well One is made to be next gen and one is made to push the bar but made with ps3 & 360 in mind. Now compare to bf4 pc. I would say killzone is about on par but that crysis 3 grass is unbeatable.
One runs on a 400$ console and one runs on a 800$+ PC. But comparing visuals with Youtube videos isn't really meaningful anyway so this article is pretty pointless imo.
best grass ever!
Crysis 2&3 sucked Killzone 2&3 sucked yet here we are discussing both because of graphics. I thought you console folk were all about Gameplay>graphics anyway? What gives?
Video comparison are stupid and pointless and it's sad how many people just get this bait and start to write such awesome, pointless opinion. In real life EVERYTHING is a lot more different. Please, do a favor to yourself and next time, avoid this video. Ps I saw and play both game (of course all of us can play Crysis 3) and I have an exact and unbiased idea how good are both the game, but I will not share my opinion here because people love only to bash each other ... But if someone want an opinion, just ask :)
@papashango Killzone 2 was pretty amazing. And the AI of KZ2 is better than the enemy AI of Crysis 2.
Video comparisons aren't real useful, but from what we can see Crysis 3 still looks more advanced. More geometry, foliage, textures seem a bit better (a few of the tree and rock textures in Killzone Shadow Fall looked a little lower res in a couple spots), and character models in Crysis 3 look better.
@Virtual_Reality yeahh kz2 AI.. the one that once triggered will chase u until its dead or kills u.. u guys have no idea what gfx or AI or physics are still u want to argue over it... im not saying crysis2's or even bf's AI was good for that matter... im just saying that most of the thing u hear are lies made up by fanboys or people who dont know shit about the topic... i have both 360/ps3 and i spend most my time on them.. but to be really really honest.. i have a pc that was under 400$'s and thats 5 years ago.. that pc shows better gfx in crysis than i have seen in killzone:SF... the leaves aare fully rendered and have the surface scattering effect.. full hdr bloom... god rays.. and the water and ocean is something i have yet to see even in nexgen games... not to mention vegetation physics and face rendering... so please stop discussing over stuff u have no idea of untill u see it with ur own eyes... and just for ur info i have a core2duo and a 9600gt.. i have custom tailored my gfx thru the config files... and running crysis on dx9...
@TRU3_GAM3R Don't forget the Top Secret Tessellated Toad Tech!
come to that conclusion from a compressed youtube video..........
I'll give you one chance to answer that question..
no way shadow fall looks better than crysis 3 pc on max!
I'm starting to be unable to tell the difference.
There is one thing that everyone seems to ignore. PC is not a closed system hardware wise. KZ:SF will look the same on all PS4s while Crysis 3 looks different on different PC builds. And to max everything out on Crysis 3 you need a beast PC that is much more expensive than the PS4. The majority of PC gamers can't max Crysis 3 with an acceptable framerate.
I have an HD 7950 and I can play it very well by lowering just a few settings. It still looks pretty much like this. I do admit that some of the better games on consoles are starting to look like high end PC games like Crysis 3, The Witcher 2, etc.
Seems like the video shows off the action packed part of KZ:SF showing cool effects and explosions, yet on Crysis3 it shows the player doing NOTHING in the same forest.
I still don't think Shadow Fall looks better than Crysis 3 though, but don't get me wrong, it looks amazing for a launch title on PS4, can't wait to see what lies ahead for PS4.
to be honest I think Crysis 3 looks better but that's simply because Crytek is better at doing forests. It's not a good comparison. To really compare, we'll have to compare the same game between PS4 and PC
Omg... How do these article get approved? This is just Pointless!!
The game isn't out yet. Nor the console for that matter.
Plus Guerilla started developing Killzone:SF with the PS4 having only 4GB VRAM in mind. It's hard to say how much more they used in the new E3 trailer but I'm sure there is still a lot of potential in the PS4.
you people on here need to realize that doubling the ram isn't gonna double the graphics. It has more to do with the gpu/cpu. Most of the amazing looking PC games on PC take up only a couple gigs of ram.
^Nobody said that doubling the VRAM means double the graphics, that would be pretty delusional.
^ I've seen the statement numerous times on here
I meant that nobody said it on this news and your comment wasn't really a reply to mine. I just said that the PS4 has some potential left since all devs developed their games with 4GB VRAM in mind until February.
RAM just determined how many processes and objects they can place.
actually your wrong ram can improve graphics. textures are nothing more than images wrapped onto a 3d object. more ram better textures.More ram also allows for better performance. its the reason 360 had an edge over ps3. now there are limits. lighting and polygon counts are based on cpu/gpu.In such a case ps4 wont beat pc.
RAM isn't going to suddenly double the framerate, but actually, if you have double the RAM, you can hold double the textures in memory. Probably more than double, since not everything scales equally, and you can always use better textures (whereas, say, pathing information isn't going to scale much).
So why do you mention VRAM?
Can't really compare different art styles to one or the other. But whatevs.
They both look great and Killzone:Shadow Fall is only going to look better in the next few months. If a launch title can look this impressive I can't wait for a few years time for a game like Uncharted 4.
Crysis 3 looks better.
It does of course, but its amazing that Killzone can put up a fight.
Why do you care? More to the point, if someone is going to make a comparison, they should compare the PS4 PC versions of battlefield 4. Comparing different titles shows/proves absolutely nothing.
it gives us an idea of the power of PS4 compared to an expensive, powerful PC. for a launch game it holds up really well, in places KZSF looks about the same maybe better this doesn't tell much though because they have different art styles. the real test will come with PS4 vs. PC Battlefield 4 comparisons
It's hard to say. What they need to do is have in-game shots where the hud is displayed so that we know the player is in full control. Too many tricks are out there. A game like Uncharted for example looks even better during a sequence when the player has no control. Once it goes back with the hud on display the graphics get toned down. We also have to compare the games while in the same settings. Have both at 30fps and in 1080p if that is what Killzone is. If Crysis looks slightly worse but running at twice the frame rate then is that a fair comparison? Killzone on the PS3 didn't even allow climbing because of system constraints. So all of these things need to be taken into consideration before people blurt out this looks better. https://www.youtube.com/wat... At the 2:30 mark he mentions how climbing wasn't possible before on the PS3 and Killzone.
I don't even like Crysis but Crysis 3 is obviously better.
Both look really nice, the trees in Killzone look butt ugly though https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.a... They posted this up on their FB page and really didn't look that great.
you're not looking at the right places then. The trees looks so colorful and alive.
What does color got to do with anything?
You might not like the trees, but they carry quite some detail and are no cookie cutters, which is quite impressive, actually. I can't really tell which is better. I'd think Crysis. But then, there is a lot of grass in the Crysis shots but more characters in KZ. Also, more distance in KZ while Crysis has more detail in the "Corridor". All in all it might just balance out to be the same in pushing vertices/pixels. Surprisingly KZ has more open space and the better draw distance - or maybe not surprising given they can play with massive amount of memory.
that looks like garbage, skyrim's forest looks better than that
That's freaking beautiful! Killzone SF that is.
Me too, can't wait to be one of the first playing Killzone online on the PS4 ^_^ Hopefully the launch will go smoothly.
Might be an overload with all the PS4 people are preordering :0.Lets hope Sony doesnt underestimate this game.
1. Crysis 3 is the very old continuously updated engine while KZSF is on a fresh new one. 2. KZSF is bound to have many themes in environments, sci-fi base, cities, jungles, maybe beaches and/or caves etc. Crysis 3 has one big, and that too mastered since 2006. Not to mention its boring as hell!
You might call Crysis boring, but many people disagree with you. Many people think Killzone is boring. It's just a matter of opinion. I happen to enjoy both Killzone and Crysis. And they both look beautiful.
So an old updated PC engine is compared with a console game that's not even out. I think we have an answer here. PC>PS4
Its just that all the pc heads were saying for months that crysis 3 made killzone look terrible. This just proves otherwise.
Sorry but crysis 3 doesn't come closr to killone shadow fall in the graphics department.Also im sure crysis 3 is running on a $1500 PC and still can't hang with killzone
you cant be serious
Oh, he's serious. But delusional.
flames youre making your self look like a fool. no one should expect ps4 to be stronger then a pc but for ps4 only 399 it puts up a hella of a fight
Of course it's running on a $1500 PC. And it's running on my $800 PC. On high settings. That's the beauty. And now, you would say that's too much money. You pay $400 for your console, and $400 for your lame PC. That's $800. So, do you have the money, or not?
crysis 3 looks better on pc. but killzone is looking really good to.
no how anyone can make any judgments watching a compressed youtube vid, even in 720p the quality is poor. cant wait to play killzone 4 regardless of how it compares to crysis 3. already been there and finished that game
A true comparison would b arma 3 and killzone both are exclusive comparing multiplat to a exclusive isnt a fair comparison Arma3 would win hands down..
A lot of people in denial here. Of course a game on a more expensive platform is going to look better. It's been proved that current gen pcs are more powerful. I have a feeling these articles will be popping up a lot.
Oh here we go again, yay now it's all about consoles vs pc yay I can't wait for all those pc is more powerful, next gen consoles are low range pcs, $400 that beats ps4, yay I can't wait.
Yeah compressed video sucks. Console vs PC is moot now that the consoles are Supercharged PCs (mid range pc at best.) But what the hell is wrong with that? Its way more profitable to release on Console than PC. And if they look better on console it pushes the PC programmers to Work harder. What you love today you might hate tomorrow.
Why wouldn't they compare the PS4 PC versions of Battlefield 4? Why compare different titles altogether? Doesn't make sense.
Of course crysis is better but KZ SF is very good for first game on ps4.
shouldn't we be comparing killzone to titanfall and destiny?
titan fall (does it have an sp mode) maybe but not destiny, its hard to compare a SP game to MMOs, that said I think Killzone will be the best looking of the 3 though Destiny had some stunning moments in the demo they showed.
no we're comparing games with stunning gfx
yeah but a high end pc vs a launch title? id hardly call that fair..
Well it was the inevitable comparison.
Crisis 3 has better lighting and textures but all Crytek cares about is graphics. Kzsf looks like it will be a blast to play but crysis 3 does beat it in the graphics department. Not by much. The real difference is up close and personal. From the demos of sf they've shown the textures up close get slightly blurry. http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co... http://media1.gameinformer.... The arts styles are also COMPLETELY different. One is more over saturated and one is more realistic
