PS4 Vs Xbox One: 'We Have Superior Graphic Fidelity' - Sony

NowGamer: "The console wars are kicking off all over again as the back and forth between Sony and Microsoft continues. While Nintendo just sits there. Quietly.

But when next-gen does roll around, does it matter which console is more powerful or is it more about the games, the price or even the policies of the consoles?

Sony's senior vice president of the PlayStation brand has revealed that - as a company - Sony believes the PS4 will beat the Xbox One on graphical fidelity."

Sony just keep doing what your doing.

Graphics so superior that MS used screenshots from Killzone to promote the Xbone.

Shikoro2000d ago

I think people are taking this comment the wrong way. He's actually saying that they used the KZ screenshot to "show off the Xbox One" because it looks really good.

abzdine2000d ago

7GB for games.

Enough said! Next...

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32000d ago

Do they plan on proving this with multiplats? Because those were the games they mostly showed at their event.

DARK WITNESS2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

Right now I am in no way a MS supporter, but to be fair it's not like sony has not made that mistake before.

Remember when they used pgr3 shots to promote GTHD? it happened more then once as well.

A lot of time these companies outsource work like this and the people they give the work to just don't research enough or care that much.. they just want to get the job done.

Just saying both sides can make mistakes.

NewMonday2000d ago


sure, but they did it twice, that is a testament to the beauty of the game and the PS4's power.

another funny thing about the add is KZ had the only in-game engine image.

IMOO BF4 could be the most "realistic" at launch, but KZ:SF looks to have a good balance between "art" and "real".

justastranger102000d ago

That's what Sony said about the PS3 but 360 was way more powerful and had better multiplats.

Felonycarclub82000d ago

@Justranger10 LMFAO with that comment sorry but the ps3 is more powerful than the 360 it may not be a big difference but Xbox doesn't have a single game that can match ps3 first party games and we all know why multiplatform games look better on 360 but there are some that look better on ps3 because it was the lead platform like FF13. And now with the ps4 all games will look better than Xbone, Sony actually pushes the limit of its console.

thechowderp2000d ago

the ps3 was more powerful this gen but due to foreign hardware it was hard to program for and the xbox got better multiplats. have you ever seen a ps3 exclusive?

"7GB for USED games, because they love us"

Waller1999d ago

Talking about used games still? Where have you been?

timl2411999d ago

They might as well just rename this website

Just listen, I for one like the Xbox. I have owned it since it has come out in 2001 and I will always own one. I am not taking anything away from the PS4, chances are I will probably own one down the road. After all, I did have a PS1 and PS2. But in reality, the specs are not that much different. I will say, as an Xbox fan, the PS4 IS more powerful spec wise. I cannot take away from them, it is a fact. But, as shown this generation, it's all about how it is optimized and I think we can all agree that the PS3 wasn't optimized the way it could have been. And nothing has shown me that it won't happen this time either.

In the end, both consoles have very similar specs, both consoles will be fantastic, it just comes down to personal preference.

mxrider21991999d ago

@tim the cell was ridiculously hard to program for and now your saying you havnt seen anything for it to be different? did you look at the specs or wat?

alittleshakey1999d ago

Watching the Killzone E3 gameplay video again, I noticed foliage popping in here and there......not impressed *yawn*

starchild1999d ago

Nah. Killzone Shadow Fall looks great. I do have to say, though, that Battlefield 4 looks a lot better to me and has better physics and destruction.

inveni01999d ago

I qualified my statement with "because they love us". I know Microsoft allows them now (so they say...there's still time to flip), but they certainly don't allow them because they appreciate the gamer. Gamers are nothing but a vehicle. It's the same thing Sony did by making gamers the vehicle for Bluray. It's always a mistake to use your customer. Especially when they see it coming.

SuperLupe2000d ago

Not saying the PS4 isnt more powerful but none of the games they showed looked like they were running on a machine graphically more powerful than the XOne.

Graphically the most impressive game running on consoles at E3 was Ryse.

Feel free to disagree and tell me why.

Kingthrash3602000d ago

maybe because the were using pc's that had chips in them that were far superior than the xb1....where you been thats a week old topic.

Bennibop2000d ago

Battlefield 4 looked better!

TheLyonKing2000d ago

Xbox1 was not used in the demos.

Ryse looks all qte so they can pump more into graphics but I think the graphics were not that impressive tbh.

BF4 looked glorious and I thought 15's graphics looked smoother than ryse which look jaggier in a way.

However I still think ni no kuni and dark chronicles had better graphics since I am big fan of cell shading.

If you are talking about realism then again bf4 wins then followed by killzone shadow fall.

plaZeHD2000d ago

Ryse? Really?
This is an official screenshot from the developers themselves.

SniperControl2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )


Battlefield 4 was proved to be running on a PC during there presentation, not on a X1 as they stated.

Please note the "backspace" key in upper right corner.

Statix2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

The disagree is from you claiming Ryse was the best looking game of the show.

It looked decent for sure, and is a nice bump up in graphical fidelity from 360 games, but it was nowhere near the most graphically intensive or accomplished game shown at E3. It's an extremely linear, on-rails game, with no sophisticated AI, game logic, or physics to process in the background. In terms of pure graphical detail, the Quantic Dream tech demo, Dark Sorcerer absolutely demolishes it. And other games, Infamous: Second Son as an example (Digital Foundry calls it the most CGI-like game they saw at E3), also kills it on a technical level--despite Second Son being an open-world game with much more going on in the game world.

Ryse is a Kinect game that they scrambled at the last minute to make into a regular game for the Xbox One. I'm not even being facetious with this statement--it's actual fact.

Why o why2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

Lol, back to you lube.....

Ill also like to add that ms just don't have the developers of the same ilk as sony nor the nurturing ethos of sony towards development. If they did the contest would be a touch fairer. You cannot ignore these factors.

seanpitt232000d ago

I think personally infamous second son looked the best graphically.

Bennibop2000d ago


Ryse was not even running on an X1 it was running on a higher spec'd PC. So I am right to compare!

imt5582000d ago

You must considered that Sony deliver full spec PS4 dev kit to developers after the E3. Even with 4GB GDDR5 dev kits PS4 game look really impresive, especially InFamous or Killzone. The best graphics of the E3 show takes The Dark Sorcerer tech demo. Read article :

Well, expect PS4 games in full force in 2014. I'm sure that developers will take more PS4 raw power under the hood.

nukeitall2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

Ryse has been confirmed by Eurogamer to run on Xbox One hardware (like many other games):

"Microsoft/Crytek's game has evolved away from the Kinect-based Xbox 360 game we saw at E3 2011, reappearing this year as a God of War-style hack and slash game. Our hands-on involves a short five minute demo that is once again categorically running on Xbox One hardware."

That said, a few extra pixels or polygons doesn't make a game fun or even a good experience. I had more laughs with my Wii then I ever had with my Xbox 360 (pre-Kinect) and PS3.

It's about delivering an overall quality experience and that involves a lot more than just graphics. Graphics has never won a console war (and hence consumers) over!

etownone2000d ago

Totally agree....

Ryse is Imo the best looking exclusive I saw I E3.

Day One for me for sure.

colt-of-tipton2000d ago

I agree , ryse looked best graphically at e3 in my opinion along with killzone

SpinalRemains1382000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

I disagree because current Gen games on ps3 are comparable to Ryse.

Of all the One games shown I thought Ryse looked the worst.

Dee_912000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

@JamieL below
Decimated ?
They showed 2 more exclusive launch titles...Xbox One will have 15 exclusives in the first year,PS4 30+
What the hell are you going on about ?

thechowderp2000d ago

for everyone who says ryse was the best looking, have any of you seen screenshots or gameplay from infamous SS or KZ SF?

Polysix1999d ago

Ryse looked really really boring and it's graphics looked like a cutscene, in the worst way.

Actual games with gameplay (KZ:SF, Infamous SS) and the tech demo sorcerer were much much better looking both in art direction and graphics tech. Ryse looked flat and boring to me.

Ausbo1999d ago

Ryse looked awesome, but to me, nothing looked better than the division. Better than both systems exclusives

mav8051999d ago (Edited 1999d ago )

Ryse looked incredibly boring and generic to me gameplay wise, definitely not something that I would get excited about or sell me on a system.

Edit: @ Ausbo: I agree, I think the Division was the best looking and most interesting game shown.

Polysix1999d ago

Agreed on the Division. The game I'm most excited about.

Pintheshadows1999d ago

I thought Second Son, The Witcher 3 and The Division were significantly more impressive from a graphical standpoint than Ryse. Although Ryse as a concept is good but the previews have been very very mixed. It does look like it should be a Kinect only game.

LoveSpuds1999d ago

Probably because the dev kits running XBOne were using $650 graphics cards.

Lets just wait and see what the XBOne version of the game looks like before we get carried away. I hope it looks as good but will believe it when I see it.

extermin8or1999d ago

@Ausbo: Actually I though the division looked great to but about on par with infamous- interestingly it's not being made on pc as far as we know atm and that gameplay they showed was infact the ps4 version-although they did state if there's demand a pc version could be made.

Utalkin2me1999d ago

Sorry i thought was mediocre at best. The textures was dull and seemed spotty in the low res department. The animations was not smooth, and it had framerate problems.

While all that stuff can be fixed before the game launches. To say it was the best looking game at E3 is just absurd. Wouldn't even been in my top 10.

starchild1999d ago

Extermin8or, are you kidding? The Division looks vastly better than Infamous Second Son. Its not even close. Quit being a fanboy. I know you want an exclusive to be the best looking, but don't deny the obvious reality staring you in the face.

baodeus1999d ago


so does that mean that God of War 3/4, and especially Heavy Rain/Beyond 2 souls looks good because they are QTE fest? Others have been saying that for years, but no one on this site agree to it, but now they agrees?

and how shell shading show technical power of a console? Even PS1 or game cube can do shell shading. People really confuse between artistic vs graphic (and yes i prefer prince of persia or journey graphic over any other games out there too) but i think we are talking about technical term here (the hardware?)

I'm getting dizzy reading people comments on this sites because they keep switching back and forth.

Sony must be showing those games behind closed doors because MS owned E3 with their games. MS's games look better gameplay and graphically better at E3.

Angrymorgan2000d ago

Only thing m $ showed that impressed me was spark....oh and dr3. The rest not so much

Thomper2000d ago

I was surprised by Microsofts line-up at e3, for me they had the more interesting show

Maybe it's just my age (38) but the biggest buzz of the show was Killer Instinct. Just love the over-the-top nature of it. Second up was Titanfall. That looked awesome.

Destiny was a little disappointing, but I think that has been due to all the hype. Who am I kidding?? It will be awesome. I absolutely love the Halo series, so expect Bungie to deliver. What platform do I get it on though??

I have been consistently disappointed with Sony's on-line functionality compared to Microsofts, but hopefully they will ramp this up this gen.

Genuinely excited about this gen, and loving that XB1 has an HDMI in. I'm hoping I can hook up my sports cam, etc to it.

JamieL2000d ago (Edited 2000d ago )

This is a MAJOR thing I don't understand about this E3 backlash. The last decade all these PS fanboys have bashed MS for was their lack of exclusives. Xbox has no games. Then the list, oh those fu(king list of games maybe coming to the PS3 within the next 15 years or so. Now when MS pretty much decimates Sony at E3 game wise, and exclusive wise, (yes I know Game wise is subjective) but it's funny there’s not a peep about all the Sony exclusives, or a single list to be found that shows how many more game Sony has coming. Now it’s just about how 8GB of GDDR5 ram makes the PS4 50% more powerful, and XBones DMR, of course now it’s all about how stupid they are for changing that. I thought it was all about the games, what happen? It’s all about the number of exclusives on the way until the competition has more? I don’t know how it’s even possible, but the community on this site has hit a new low, in every article is not even a Sony circle jerk any more, just a 100% MS lynching. It gets old, ya’ll never get tired of it?

WeedyOne1999d ago


When I think "exclusive" it means that the game will not be available anywhere else... most of the excusive games Microsoft showed are also on the PC.

On top of that, games like Titan fall will most likely go to ps4 within a year due to Microsoft not owning the ip, so no Microsoft didn't have more exclusives they just painted the picture that they did by having more "timed exclusives".

DCplaymaker1999d ago

Fully agree with you. KI and Titanfall win for me. Oh and PS4 is not a certainty for Titanfall. Maybe Titanfall 2. Respawn is just being nice by not completely saying no. A one-year exclusive to what may be an annual game is HUGE. Fact is Respawn chose Xbone over PS4.

LoveSpuds1999d ago

Hmmm, for me the only XBox game of any real interest was Titan Fall was running on a dev kit that contains who knows what specs.

The company have been paid by MS to toe the party line regarding comments for other platforms but I would be stake my house that EA will want to make cash from the potentially huge install base of PS4 consumers while there is still a buzz - expect a 3-6 month timed exclusive at the most.

Personally, I think it looks an amazing game but until I see it running on a real XBOX I will assume that what we saw was a gaming PC version of the game.

I am sure it will still look amazing on consoles so there is plenty for both XB1 and PS4 consumers to be excited about.

kenshiro1001999d ago

Please...don't make me laugh.

Utalkin2me1999d ago

First off Sony showed games at pre launch and MS didn't. At E3 Sony showed a few more titles and including extra footage of games they already showed. Then MS shows all their games and people say they decimated Sony? Lets see what happens in the next 2 events. Sony has showed more exclusives then MS has.

We all know MS blew their wad at E3, that's fine. Sony still stole the show. Thats all that really matters. And people need to get schooled on the word "EXCLUSIVE", it means it is not coming to any other platform.

NextGen24Gamer1999d ago

The Xbox ONE uses a heavily customized AMD chip that combines an eight-core CPU, a GPU tailored for DirectX 11.1 graphics and 32MB of high bandwidth embedded ESRAM memory.

The keyword is tailored for DirectX 11.1
There is a reason the xbox one can do Ultra HD 4k gaming and the ps4 can't. Sure Ps4 has faster ram & gpu...but that's only one small part of the puzzle in graphics fidelity. Sony bet on faster ram, MS bet on better software and customized hardware.

So far, MS games look better based on E3. We will need to wait and see how it all pans out when both consoles release. I have a feeling based on what I have read that they will either be very similar or advantage xbox one due to the customized chips & software along with their investment in the Cloud infrastructure for games!

DoesUs1999d ago


The PS4 and XB1 share the same "custom" AMD processor. Basically 2 Jaguars duct taped together giving 8 cores in total. The GPU in the PS4 is more powerful. The Move engines in the XBONE are there to move data around the machine but this still falls short of the PS4 due to the superior bandwidth and speed of the PS4. Both machines also have dedicated processors for audio/video needs. You keep clinging on the the whole 4K thing, Sony are not saying they can't do it on a technical level, clearly the PS4 is more capable than the XB1, they are saying that it's not viable "at the moment" given the lack of 4K TV's in the wild. Also, even with these machines, the types of games you'd see @4K would be very simple affairs. Also Sony's tools are reported to be ahead of MS, should be easy for you to find. And lastly the XB1 OS footprint is considerably larger than the PS4 OS. But if you want to keep your head buried in the sand then be my guest. The truth for you is not long away now.

If only it could be that simple in business - or life in general. If a business keeps on doing what it's doing then it still relies on the PS buyers to keep on doing what they're doing as well- or at least to educate their offspring why the PS is the brand to get. But societies can change. Genres go out of style for a bit. It's a constant battle. Even if they appear to be more or less staying the same, they had to battle to be able to stay the same.

RedHawkX2000d ago

yep ps4 has the best graphics and its cheaper. its a no brainer for a real gamer. not only that but playstation has the best exclusives just look at the metacritic of little big planet, uncharted 2, the last of us, god of war 3 etc. im sorry but your not a gamer if you skip out on all of this because you want to get some achievements instead of superior trophies. as for your friends that you game with currently on the x360 with they are getting a ps4 because its cheaper comes with a mic and is more poweerful. only a fool would get the xbox one at this point. xbox is dead like myspace.

Rimfro1999d ago

I always thought a "real gamer" was someone who loved to play games. I didn't realize that a "real gamer" had to make a choice as to what games NOT to play. Each gen I get every console to ensure that I don't miss out on any exclusives. Maybe not everyone can do that, but to act like there is some moral high-ground by making the choice to limit your choices is silly. Go ahead, limit your gaming scope, I'll be playing everything you will, then I'll still have two consoles worth of exclusives and pc to keep me going non-stop. When you have multiple options, rarely will you be in a position with nothing new to play. To each their own.

irepbtown1999d ago (Edited 1999d ago )

Rimfro, I'd like to get X1 for games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3, however I cannot afford it.

PS4 is cheaper and will have quality games. 7GB of GDDR5 is dedicated to gaming (1GB for OS) compared to the X1 with 5GB of DDR3 (3GB for OS). I don't know much about ram, I'm just going by what the articles around are saying, PS4 is more powerful.

That being said, X1 does have some quality looking games. I was extremely impressed by the two I mentioned above (Ryse & Dead Rising 3).

However where I'm going with this; many many many people cannot afford both. I don't agree with the way RedHawkX worded it, but he's right in many ways. Look at some of the PS3 exclusives, TLoU looks set to be the best game this gen.

If I could afford it, I'd get both consoles; but I just cant. Maybe late 2014 I'll be getting the X1.

Its kinda an expected response from Sony. MS has been talking about cloud power and how devs will take advantage of it, and even stating their version of games will be better than Sony's.

Its a argument from both sides.

Yeah Sony keep talking instead of showing.. It gets us really excited.. We get to think about...

Ju1999d ago

What you talking about? KZ:SF, inFamous, DriveClub and Quantic Dreams Tech demo would want a word with you. But instead, MS showed, huh? With two games actually running on real HW, the rest on PCs or aren't even close of matching those above. MS couldn't even create a Master Chief tech demo for the big show? Really? Not a single first party game besides Forza? I really would want to get what you guys are taking. Works phenomenal.
