Contrast Dev: "Very Little Difference Between Versions on PS4 and High End PC"

"It's often been the case that the PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One for that matter, won't be as powerful as the most high-end PCs. Of course, given the architecture and how easy it is to developer for the PS4 compared to the PS3, it would make multi-platform development all the easier for the next generation." (PS4)

Youre all reading way to much into this....

First of all the article should read:

Indie Game "Contrast" will look almost the same on PS4 and High end PC.

Second of all we can begin to question why that is. Is it because:

1. PS4 is as powerful as a high end PC?.
Answer = LOL

2. Is it because it's a indie game, that could hardly stress a high end PC?.
Answer = Perhaps

3. Is it because Sam Abbot is the PR manager at Compulsion games and dosn't want to downplay either version.
Answer = Bingo

Now dont get me wrong i have my PS4 preordered, but im not gonna loose all sense of criticism because of it.

@ hellvaguy

Well, I'd actually rather pay for online multiplayer this time around so that they can actually raise some money to work on making their service faster/more dependable etc.

It seems like a very reasonable policy. After all, I've been paying $60/year for XBL for the last 6 years, so it'll be nice to cancel that and pick up PS+, which is clearly a better value, and in my opinion might even become the better service if Sony invests the raised PS+ funds into it.
stevehyphen  +   425d ago
@andibandit got it.

@JunioRS101 got it, too.

PS4 is not going to be more powerful than a good PC, although the hardware consistency allows for developers to get more out of a PS4 than if you had a PC with the exact same specs. A high or top end PC will always have more raw power to put out though.

I'm perfectly fine with paying to play online. I expected, and wanted, it to happen. Anything to make the service better. I'm not saying it was bad to begin with, but it definitely needed improvement. This benefits the consumer in another way in that Sony is now more accountable for anything that could happen in terms of outages and whatnot.

It would be better news.

Competition is always a good thing. The XBox Two is very likely to be much more performance orientated because of the associated criticisms at the One's architecture and lack of targeted high end graphic rendering (not my words, but MS's).

The 360 came out like gang busters because of previous lessons learned on the OXBox as well as building/improving on what made the PS2 dominant.

The PS3 services improved because MS had there stuff together with the 360. Sony couldn't just match them. They had to surpass expectations (PSPlus) to present a compelling argument (as there was none before) and to change the narrative at the time.

The PS4 (general launch experience and general perception) improved because Sony learned some hard lessons.

The XBox Two (general launch experience and general perception) will improve as well because MS will learn from prior mistakes as well.

"Would it be great news if he said "very little difference between versions on ps4 and Xbox one?"

It wouldn't be any kind of news, since parity is the name of the game with console multiplats.

Your hoping for him to say that or something?

This is just my opinion but developers should maximize the hardware on each platform. If console A is capable of rendering much better graphics than console B then i dont expect the two versions of the game to be the same. But if a super powerful console is limited by a vastly inferior one then the only ones who suffer are those that made the investment in the more powerful system which is unfair to me.

Specs matter but games>specs. I game on PC as primary platform ATM but the article is right as nearly all PS4 games look as good or better than at least 75% of PC games of today. When it releases that might change though as new engines scale better (both up and down) so PC will see even better looking games as well.

To be honest I would be happy if many PC games looked as good as Killzone 3 or Infamous SS. We have some that look better but not all devs can afford or attempt that level of quality. When they do yes its usually better but that's the minority to be honest.

yes. my daughters pc is connected to a 120 inch screen and it is entirely controlled by the xbox 360 controller.
It has all of their movies, all of their music, all of their games (snes,genesis,master syetem, n64,dreamcast,psx,ps2, gamecube, wii, and of course bout 30 PC games ranging from mw3 to crisis 2. its got a blu ray drive wifi N and a wireless 360 receiver all in a small compact package. about the size of a 360 original.

the only games it doesn't push 1080p with is crisis 1 and 2

the card they have installed is the 6770 low profile edition

all of this was built for 600 bucks in hardware.

all of the software can be launched closed and controlled no matter what console is playing via the 360 controller.

so in a long ass answer.. Yes and my kids love it.

oh and this pc has never been upgraded and is still trouncing the ps3 and 360 in terms of horsepower over a year after I bought it and built it.

This will probably be the case for a short while like it was with the X360/PS3.

Typically the only differences were things like higher rez textures, advanced depth of field, farther LoS on objects, higher world density, stereoscopic 3D, and higher resolutions than 1080p and higher FPS than the standard 30-60fps.

So no, there won't be hardly any differences. /sarcasm

Enjoy the PS4 guys. Its going to be a monster of a console. But at the end of the day it is a console. PLEASE stop comparing it to other products like the PC. The comparison isn't fair and in the end it only makes you sound like an idiot.

People need to stop throwing the TFLOPS about.

I'll show you what i mean.

In one of my PC'S.

I have a amd 6870. which is 2 tflops.

A 6870 is not as powerful as a 7870 which is at 2.56tflops

A 7870 has 156gb/s bandwidth, while the PS4 does more.

Also Sony's version of GPU is custom, by both amd and sony.

Most things that slow down GPU'S. Poor code.

Shadows,Shaders,particles,lig hts etc.

PS4 is a highend custom PC.

The primary difference comes about from the abstraction penalty we find with graphics apis on a PC versus the specialized apis we find on the consoles due to their fixed-hardware. For example, our current consoles are capable of pushing out 2-3x the number of draw calls than would be possible in a similar PC counterpart. "Poor code" doesn't really come into it.

However I will still be getting the PS4 for the exclusives.

Update: Brian Karis, senior graphics programmer at Epic Games adds some more insight in the comments below, explaining some of the more obvious differences - particularly in terms of the very different lighting schemes. At the technical level, the two demos are closer than it seems:

"The biggest changes actually came from the merging of two separate cinematics, the original Elemental and the extended Elemental we showed at PS4's launch event. Each had different sun directions and required some compromises to join them. This resulted in some major lighting differences that aren't platform related but were due to it being a joined cinematic. Another effect, in the original you could see the mountains through the door where in the merged one we made the view through the door white since the mountains outside were no longer the same. Same deal with the mountain fly by. The old mountain range doesn't exist in the new one. These changes from the merge make direct comparisons somewhat inaccurate.

"Feature wise most everything is the same, AA resolution, meshes, textures (PS4 has tons of memory), DOF (I assure you both use the same Bokeh DOF, not sure why that one shot has different focal range), motion blur.

"Biggest differences are SVOGI has been replaced with a more efficient GI solution, a slight scale down in the number of particles for some FX, and tessellation is broken on ps4 in the current build which the lava used for displacement. We will fix the tessellation in the future."

edit: I was going to post the same thing windblowsagain posted.

But anyway, they made this demo in like a week with very early development kits.

Well the ps4 design considered by many tech engineers as a md level pc.

On PC world as 2012 (remember not 2013)
7770 + Jaguar = low low spec
7770 + i7 = med spec
7870 + jaguar = med spec
7870 + i7 = med spec
7970 + i7 = High end PC
7990 + i7 = high end pc
7990 + Overclocked i7 = highest end pc

2013 will be change a little bit, >8 TF = Highest end PC
as the highest end will have > 7-8TF on PC

5-7 TF will considered to be High end PC
Titan 4-5TF = High end PC
8970 = high end PC, 6TF
8990 = Highest end PC 2013, > 8 TF

PS4 = 1.76 + 200Gflop Jaguar = medium pc lower bound

blah blah blah , seriously who gives a f? All I see is a wall of numbers that mean nothing on their own. Show me all the games and I will decide where I can play and have the most fun and entertainment.

So what! The PC will never have the exclusives that the PS4 will have.

Well, anyone could argue the opposite. Different preferences for different people.

And ps3 will never have the exclusives PC has.

Your point is pretty moot.

The 8000 series was just a rebrand. Essentially all OEM in fact. The 9000 series on the other hand is extpected to intoduce the 9970 as a ~8.2 tflop single gpu card with a timeframe set for october.

If you are only playing at 1080p a card like that would be overkill.

I think the main point is PS4 is a great cheaper console that u can own if u wanted something that comes close to a PC in terms of high end graphics. 4 me the biggest thing that I'm really excited is that devs have been saying that pretty much all high end games on PC can easly be done 4 ps4 in 3 months now that's tells u that PS4 is not far behind at high end PC. Truth is ps4 is more powerful then most PCs that people own that is few that own a high end pcs that r above 900$.

After seeing Planetside 2 max out on the PS4, I can believe this.

Got a link to that gameplay?

exactly. It doesn't exist. The fanboys are just running away with some quote from somebody trying to hype up the game so the uninformed buy it.

That's very good and I will definitely be buying a PS4 but the thing is PC components are always improving and getting better so next year there will be better GPU's, CPU's and so on.

As expected. PS4 with the edge.
