How well does cutting-edge PC code translate to next-gen console?
Digital Foundry is spot on the ps4 visuals they have been downgraded compared to last year e3 demo.
You left out the lovely part where they also mention, pretty common knowledge, that the demo running last year was on high-end PCs. Edit: Disagreeing with fact doesn't make it wrong. :)
disagree because these are new consoles that nobody know how powerful they really are so saying that the demo ran on a high-end PC is irrelevant. He just said that last year's demo looked much better than PS4's demo and that is the truth regardless of your spin.
so it will be PC vs PS4 this generation and XBone is out of the game.
CGI is right. I mean if it looks and runs this much better on old PC hardware I can only imagine how good it's gonna be on my new GPU that hasn't even been released yet! I'm getting excited :)
Basically the high-end PC version looks the best graphically (normal advantages, better shadows, depth of field, etc..., just not as bad as PS360 vs. PC). Watchdogs and likely most other 3rd party games are being build on high-end PC's and being ported to other consoles. PS4 version is still in development, as they try to improve all aspect by launch. Basically right now the PS4 version is the PC version on medium settings running in 1080p @ 30fps (my guess is the goal is 1080p @ 30fps high settings). PS360 and Wii U versions might have a large and noticeable downgrade in overall graphic fidelity.
Xbox One already looks better because of the cloud. Even respawn says Azure cloud gives the X1 an advantage over PCs and definitely over PS4. Repsawn stated PS4 can't run titanfall.
At: justastranger10 Do you realize if the PS4 can't run Titanfall and the XBOX ONE needs cloud computing to run it than XBOX ONE is back to being always online and the XBOX ONE can't handle Titanfall offline, lol? Just to let you know cloud computing can happen on any platform, even PC if developers wanted to.
Titanfall runs on PC and.... wait for it.... Xbox 360? gtfo pl0x Titanfall barely makes the next-gen cut, it's graphics are nothing to boast about.
@ wishing: I'd advise you to look up "spin".
Indeed. Some of the latest footage is downright shocking. Doesn't strike me as a limitation of the PS4 though...I mean, just look at The Division. It does have its moments, but the visuals have been all over the place in the Watch Dogs footage shown so far. Art is very nicely done though. The city looks like an actual city and not just a collection of buildings and roads thrown together like some open world games out there (Prototype, Saints Row, Just Cause to name a few).
I find funny that the fanboys of this site are so hardcore that even with the proof in front of their face they still dare to disagree with your comment. N4G's users are just plain ridiculous.
Tell us, since all you've done is piggyback others' opinions, what makes fact-giving ridiculous? Why compare high-end PC footage to year later, weaker console footage and claim the comparison to be reasonable when speaking of lesser visuals? OF COURSE the better-speced machine will offer better results.
Should we be surprised. I mean its seems to just be a straight crappy port. Similar to what has plagued the PC platform for many years now. Its not entirely their fault, being new systems and all, but we are going to have to wait a year before the developers get a grip with these systems
@Masterdon: Just how much have you spent over the years to get your PC where it is now? By all means buy the next GPU, and the one after that, and the one after that ... Console owners don't want PCs because we like to have more games and play them on our TV. I don't go into PC threads so why do you feel it necessary to come into PS4 threads? It's just weird. The PS3 is still powerful enough for my needs and so it will be the same for the PS4.
compare PS4 to a PC that costs $400 Lol of course the PS4 has weaker graphics than this years high end PCs, but a single graphics card would cost more that a PS4 bundle so no thanks this can just be about X1 vs PS4 PC is dope but too expensive.
they are not using a $1000 Titan here, it's GTX 680, costs around $400 today. you forgot the $50 a year to play online on PS4, over say 8 years add $400 to the cost. You can certainly build a PC with a GTX 680 for $800, so no, PC gaming is not more expensive.
@ aquamala Haha, you sound silly. Add the price of a mouse/keyboard, a motherboard, RAM, adequate processor, a hard drive, a disk drive... You think that's less than $400? Yeah, and I'M the dumb ass...
JunioRS101 You're the one that can't read apparently. He said that you can build a good PC for $800, and he is right. That PC would include all the stuff you listed. His point was that once you factor in the $50 a year to play games online, the cost of the PS4 over its lifetime would easily be equal to the PC. PC gaming over the long term is not more expensive than console gaming. It only costs more upfront. But sometimes you have to pay more to get more. If cost were the only consideration we would all be gaming on the Wii U.
Who gives a shit about PC gaming? This is a console thread fool. News flash, I've got a kick ass rig with GTX 680. But PS4 is my lead gaming platform next gen. So I want it to be the best and it damn will be!
What about adding the virus progams that needs to be bought. Renewing subscriptions a year cost what?. Will windows vista run this. Will I need to up my ram, cpu or gpu. Come on dude. Will your computer now be obsolete in 5 years... come on you pc guys are getting really crazy about this lol. With all the maintenance and updates, renewing licenses for programs. How much do u spend a year for your pc. Lol. You guys are getting really pathetic. Funny thing is we all kno the pc is more powerful than consoles, so why da fuq do we have to go thru brainwashing techniques in every article lol over this pc console thing. Its like somebody is holding ur family hostage and you gotta go into every article to promote your personal rig lol.
honestly, to me, this game does not scream next gen. i'm not onboard the hype train for this game
This game was never impressive-looking, graphically at least.
You sir need to get your eyes check and fast.
So what exactly "screams" next-gen for you?
Destiny screams next gen to me, but that's probably another year away. Nothing at launch really grabs my fancy. Second Son and Shadowfall look cool i guess, but i'm not excited. If that game The Order looks, in real time, like anything that was shown in that trailer then that would pique my interest. I don't need photorealism, but when NPC models still seem rather blocky that just doesn't seem like a leap adequate for next gen this is all my opinion, of course
If you care so much about graphics get a PC. It's pretty simple.
ill get a ps4 and a ps3 those have better looking games to me than photorealism
You should think before you post because you make no sense at all. At least have mommy and daddy check your post over before hitting the reply button.....
I wonder y no multi plats running on xbox one to show of there games even the sick game division ran on ps4 I know y but don't want to hurt nobody feelings
Ubisoft has a great relationship with Sony, but I believe that's why they lead development of console versions with the PS4. The Division though being Next Gen only and being Open world looks better than Watch_Dogs. I can't wait. It looks impressive. I think though the reason why All of Ubisofts games were demonstrated on PS4 was because of the exclusive partnership they signed with Sony. Much like the partnership MS signed with Activision and EA for Battlefield and COD..
I think the reason these games were shown on the PS4 was simply because devkits have been available longer to devs than X1 dev kits and with that the game is just further along on the PS4. PS4 to X1 dev kits had a ratio of 5:1 (or something) in Jan. Sony pushed those out like crazy this time.
