PS4 offers visuals 'that rival high end gaming PCs,' says PlanetSide 2 dev

PSU writes:

"The developer behind PlanetSide 2 has heaped praise on PlayStation 4’s technical prowess, stating Sony’s next-generation console offers visuals comparable to that of high-end PCs." (Planetside 2, PS4)

"PS4 offers visuals 'that rival high end gaming PCs"

How can we know? PS4 isnt out yet. Meanwhile it has specs that rival very low end PCs.

Atleast PS3 had specs that rivaled mid range pcs at launch. PS4 is low end before its even launched.

"PS4 'optimized' visuals can rival current high end PC's" says PlanetSide 2 dev.

there, title all fixed.

Seeing as PC's will continue to get improved hardware, the fixed hardware of the PS4 (and XB1) will only get better optimization with what they have to work with.

Until the days of a modular console, the PC will always have the hardware advantage. but hardware is only as good as the software and on a closed system like the PS4.....Sony has some very talented teams to make it work.

I have no idea why all the disagrees. Indeed you can't buy a PC better than a PS4 for $400, because it is well done and made to run games. A gaming PC need to be powerful because of course, it won't only play games, but several other tasks to keep it up, and that's why we need to get PCs at higher prices to get same performance as PS4.
But bad news for PS4: PCIe 4.0, DDR4 and SATA Express are going to launch in 2015/16, that will push consoles WAY down, and that's an example of PC being worth the price. But in the end, it all gets to games, exclusives, and what's more comfortable for you. For me, is a keyboard and mouse, for some, is a gamepad.
In short, what he said can't be disagreed lol.

@above- read 'em and weep. http://www.notebookcheck.ne...

and seeing as how almost none of the next gen games so far are promised to run at 1080p and 60fps I would hold my breath on that statement if I were you.

And turning down visuals/texture quality/particle effects/physics to run at a higher fps or faster refresh doesn't count.

But as I said, no one buys a console honestly expecting to be anywhere near high end PC. Especially not early in the life-cycle of the system.

Also here is an old APU playing crysis just to further refute your claims- http://www.youtube.com/watc...

And here is a 7850m laptop playing Crysis 2 high settings - http://www.youtube.com/watc...

I think you guys forget just how good visuals can be on a mid range PC. You act like its a horrible thing the consoles are mid range in comparison to a high end gaming PC. You should be extremely happy that the consoles have that much horsepower with more gains to come once they start fully optimizing for it. Seriously, saying a console has mid range capabilities is a compliment to the system.

I have what qualify as a mid range spec laptop.... (well my cpu is a little lacking but it's still faster than ps4's by a fair bit albeit dual core not quad) but my graphics card and RAM etc are all firmly mid range. It cost about £450. And that was after searching for cheapest price. I an tell you this thing hasn't got a hope in hell of matching some of the stuff the ps4 is running. Granted it was bought around xmas. But even allowing a years changes to hardware of which there aren't that many-a mid range laptop hasn't got anything on the next gen consoles.... So please stop talking crap...

Sorry buddy, your dualcore laptop rates only work-force entry level. There isn't a single dualcore laptop that is sold today that rates anything above entry level.

So please, stop posting when you don't know what you are talking about. I just posted videos above of the first APU running crysis on high on an old laptop (not as old as yours obviously) as well as a link to the notebookcheck site to prove your statement as being a complete falsity. Matter of fact your dualcore laptop hasn't been "mid range" since 2008. Then to further my point I posted video of a 7850m running crysis 2 on high settings flawlessly. Again, proving my point with FACTS. Not a desire to defend a company/console beyond the point of absurdity ignoring all real, physical, scientific proof posted otherwise.

@JsonHenry

I don't think you really understand what devs have been saying.

More power doesn't actually equal better quality. Optimization does. You can have all the power in your PC but the total package of the game will be all over the place in presentation.

FPS might be up, texture resolution might be up and particle effects might be up but that really doesn't mean jack if the devs don't optimize well.

Take for example Crytek who act like Crysis is the greatest thing ever and that they believe they are the best devs ever. Yet when they put Crysis on consoles neither title matched Uncharted 2, TLoU, GoW3 or Ascension, Beyond TS or any of the KZ games.

At the end of the day your talking raw power but a box designed with one main purpose and a simple constant can and will allow devs to better optimize games so that they do look better than high end PC' just using raw power.

You simply can't just take it as the specs are higher and call it a day because that is only part of the story and not the final answer.

I see high end PC games all the time but it's clear that they are not fully developed and then I see console games that are way more polished and look way better. At this point it has less to do with the hardware and more to do with the devs.

@dantesparda
I don't know for sure but I would be VERY surprised to see otherwise. Here are some of the reasons I would be surprised to see a faster hard drive:

1. Historically, Sony (and Microsoft) have never put anything but the least expensive hard drives that they can negotiate into their consoles.

2. The price disparity between a 5400rpm laptop drive and a 7200rpm laptop drive is significant when you are building a box that only grabs $400 at the register.

3. A 7200 rpm laptop drive uses more power and produces more heat. More power means a bigger, more expensive power supply which also produces more heat. More heat impacts many more areas of design. The size and cost of the enclosure, how big, fast, loud and expensive the fans are, the size, efficiency and cost of various heat sinks etc

4. The 'mainstream' buyers looking at the 'specs' will never ever look past the number of gigabytes available.

p.s. It would probably be more than worth it to spend $15 more for a 1Tb 7200 rpm 64 Mb cache hard drive for a computer build.

DICE have confirmed the following:

So..mid-ranged GAMING PC then.

Why in the hell console fans downvote FACTS from the devs mouths just to piss off PC fans is beyond me.

extermin8or  +   462d ago
^Thats the Xbox one version for starters... THe PS4 version is running at a higher res than 720p just not quite 1080p... So as this is talking about PS4.... those facts are wrong already... And I read the interview myself there was no "mixture of medium and high" they explicitly stated "high settings". They said it would run at 60fps...I don't know where these "drops below" 'fact' came from.... (although even the highest end PC's sometimes drop below the frame rate they usually run in be it 60, 120 whatever- for whatever reason be it bug or anomolies, or sudden brief moments of high demand from the game for whatever reason). This console's specs may be equal to that of a so called mid range pc. (Although personally a $400 PC is low, $600 mid and 800-$1000 high and anything over that is going on to whatever is above high generally speaking.) But it's clear that developers are getting a much higher performance out of it than they would out of a PC because a PC game has to run on so many different pieces of hardware you can't ensure it runs well on one with optimisation if that optimisation is going to fuck up how it runs on another equally as powerful pc that's using a different manufacturers tech. Also I don't think you can really classify the console hardware in the way you would off the shelf PC hardware because in many cases there IS NO PC EQUIVALENT because it's been custom made, or custom modded. Just like some of the games are on PC.... A game like Skyrim can't really be compared to it's console counterpart if it's running 50 mods and is almost a different game on the PC to the console version. In the same way that the PC hardware can't really be compared to customised console hardware. So you're 'Facts' as you put it are all very well and good were they all actual 'facts'. I'm not saying that PC's aren't more powerful but when your PC's specs are as unlimited as your budget then ofc they could be more powerful if your budgets great enough. I don't understand this obsession with relying on DICE and BF4... Wait till the things out on the PC at least, it could release and you might hate it or it might not look as good as claimed then what? It's unlikely but possible. Simple fact. You go on about disagreeing with facts yet here you are disagreeing with a developer who's telling people that when optimized they have managed to get it to match the graphics high end machines play their games on currently. That would seemingly be a fact he's stating. Yet you're shouting him down.... His comment had nothing AGAINST PC gamers but was merely a point of comparison clear.

Also just to add as reprtedly the graphics drivers still aren't finished etc I don't think first gen games out for launch can be used to gage how powerful the consoles are.... Wait at the very least till early next year when some of the q1 games release and remember the consoles will continue to improve for a few years without a hardware change. It'll be a good 2-4 years before they really are maxing out their performance. Usually a new console rears it's head within a year of that happening this gen was just different.

How do you KNOW that? Highly optimized hardware can't just be categorized like that. It all depends on how good the developer is. One game could look like a mid settings game and the other a high settings game depending on the quality of the developer and their knowledge of the console architecture.

Same applies to the PC version of Battlefield 4.

So now you're questioning DICE's game development skills, one of the best developers when it comes to optimizing PC architecture hardware since they've been PC developers for decades now. DICE is a top tier developer, you cannot damage control that. They would be pushing the PS4 to it's limits to run BF4.

The PS4 is a entry to middle level PC, just based off it's hardware components. You can build a PC with PS4 components for around $500 - 600, that's middle to entry level.

You know that the point of a console is to be able to squeek out every inche of power out of it. PC's they can't because they have to make the game work over a variety of different variations of the CPU, GPU and RAM. If it has the same specs as a mid level PC by the time they are done getting every inche of power out of it will outperform the mid range PC no problem. Then it's more comparable to the high end PC in terms of visuals with a lower frame rate then the high end PC would run it at.

That is the benefit of having a console where ever single console has the same specs.

LOL. Not a chance. If games like Killzone cannot run at 60fps on single player gameplay, Drive Club not at 60fps, and Battlefiled failed to do 1080p and 60fps at the same time, all this this talk about rivaling high-end PC is just 1st party PR talk. That goes for all consoles.

Edit: fixed 60fps for below.

" If games like Killzone cannot run at 30fps on single player gameplay"

Singleplayer is confirmed 30fps 1080p, don't post lies.
decrypt  +   462d ago
High end PCs dont run games at 30fps. They put out a lot more and at resolutions way beyond 1080p
Azfargh  +   462d ago
Guerilla is tunning the coding and graphics. Already making it run (quoting) "...far above 30fps". Probably stating single player campaign.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   462d ago
@ Decrypt

Im not talking about PC, so why are you? He said Killzone isn't running at 30fps so i corrected him. It was stated as running "far above 30fps" here on N4G a few days or so ago.
windblowsagain  +   462d ago
That's correct decrypt, they do put on higher rez then 1080p, because they are meant to for the price.

I mean most idiots get sold on what nvidia says,lol.

like physx in batman games hahahaahhahah. comical shit.

"If games like Killzone cannot run at 60fps on single player gameplay", they chose to have it run at 30FPS to show the PS4's graphics capabilities at launch. Seriously man what kind of logic is that? Can run it at 60FPS for multiplayer but can't run it on single player? -____-.

LOL, what logic is that? You just answered it for me. It shows High-end PCs can run both single player and multiplayer mode at high graphics without having tradeoffs like Consoles.

More processing power = Processing more Logic codes. :D
hellzsupernova  +   461d ago
to be fair these release games are built using dev kits with a lot less power then the release kit, so wait for the second round of games and maybe then itll rival pc's of today, even though the pc wpouldve moved on.
iamgoatman  +   461d ago
I think you've got that backwards. Dev kits are typically MORE powerful than the actual console to allow more overhead when developing.
hellzsupernova  +   461d ago
You are mistaken the ps4 kits only had 4 gig of ram total
cunnilumpkin  +   462d ago
yeah, i'm sorry but no

the ps4 is about on par with a mid-high end pc from 2010

a modern mid range pc destroys it

planetside 2 runs maxed out on a 3 year old gtx 560ti that you can buy for about $140

http://www.amazon.com/nVidi...

a modern mid spec card like a gtx 760 basically will run circles around the ps4 and xbox1

why doesn't this dev say their game is native 1920x1080 on the ps4.....is it?

does it have 4x msaa anti aliasing or is it using that AWFUL fxaa garbage that just blurs the screen? does it run at 60 frames???

because a 3 year old gpu I can buy for $140 does??

what exactly is so powerful about the ps4??

Compared to high end PC's? Not much.

Buts its a £350/$400 gaming console and compared to other CONSOLES, its the most powerful.

Plus, console 1st party devs > any others.
starchild  +   462d ago
Blah, blah, blah...I'm a fanboy. That's all I heard.

Seriously, I'm sick of this delusion that 1st party developers are soooo much better than everybody else. It simply isn't true. Some of them are very good, some of them are average and some of them are below average.

Naughty Dog is a very good developer. But there are 3rd party developers of that caliber for sure. Guerrilla is about on the level of Crytek. The Crysis series actually has a somewhat higher average metacritic score than the Killzone series does. (84 vs 80)

I hate that attitude because it shortchanges all the amazingly talented 3rd party developers and all the truly outstanding 3rd party games that they create.
MysticStrummer  +   462d ago
I'm looking forward to Planetside 2 on my big screen, but I'm tired of hearing this. I want footage, and personally I don't care if the visuals don't rival a high end gaming PC as long as the game runs smoothly even in a huge battle.
stevehyphen  +   462d ago
MMO creators talking about graphics...

We all know how far MMO games push the envelope graphically.

Oh wait, that doesn't happen.
Fishy Fingers  +   462d ago
My current PC blows the next gen systems out of the water on paper, but that's it, in real life situations the consoles will allow for much greater optimization and while I'll continue to pick up multiplats on PC I'm sure (for the next few years at least) I'll be more than impressed with the console exclusives visually.
I'm impressed by what we've seen so far and it's only going to get better as the devs get their heads around the hardware.
It's win win whether your a console or PC guy.

@Fishy Fingers

Thank you, your comment was a breath of fresh air here on n4g. I wish there were more like it. I have a powerful PC and am also very impressed by what I've seen on next gen consoles.

John Carmack stated that due to custom hardware and optimisation, a pc will need at least twice the specs of either next gen console to be on par graphically. From what I've seen, I agree with him.

I personally can't wait to get my hands on my PS4.
thereapersson  +   462d ago
I am tired of the bickering; I just want the systems to come out so the games can speak for themselves. Enough of this ridiculous speculation and hyperbole.

PC doesn't count in the console war.
If you compare wii U / Xbone and PS4, Yes, PS4 is superior.
But it is by no means a PC.

PC Gamers, Shut up.

I'd say the same about you console owners who downvote PC users that know what they're talking about.
mixelon  +   462d ago
As awesome as both platforms are (obviously)

Planetside is made by Sony so I wouldn't exactly expect them to be totally unbiased. ;)

One thing that IS interesting though is if you get something like 3DMark (or even the steam surveys) - what most PC gamers consider a "high end" gaming rig is actually a VERY high end gaming rig.. I mean I have CPU/Mobo (Phenom quad core) that are years old but I still score in the top 25% of 3DMark scores - with a Radeon 7950.. Which isn't even that beefy. Very few people seem to have the cutting edge stuff..
pennywhyz  +   462d ago
Their just trying to sell consoles with that statement. PS4 does not have specs of high e nd PC's.

When PS4 releases ill download planetside2 on my PC and my PS4 and put his comments to test and see exactly how strong the PS4 is compared to a PC. I have a good high end PC I built myself. Also since PS4 has an easy share button I will probably post the differences side by side.

Many game on ps4 run 720p60 while pc are in 2560 1440 and got more eye candy.. total lie
thehitman  +   462d ago
Tell me 1 game running only at 720 on PS4 where are some of you getting your information from?
kingduqc  +   462d ago
bf4 is
some game are also 900p, surele the trend to decrese resolution will continue
even if it was 1080p pc still push 1600p without a problem and more eye candy

"High end"is wrong it should be more like ps4 is more powerful then low end pc, but that's not really a sensationalist title
thehitman  +   461d ago
The BF4 that was reported wasnt even optimized just ported over and still has 2 months of development on it.

so planetside 2 on pc has probably less than 100k users and its FREE.

when they launch PS2 on PS4, it will most likely hit 500k-1m downloads. and you wonder why developers dont want to use the full potential of the pc, Its a waste of money for them.
iamgoatman  +   461d ago
Yeah, they released Planetside 2 exclusively on PC in the first place because it's a waste of money to do so. /s

What the... I don't even...
modesign  +   462d ago
if developers made a 100million dollar AAA game for pc, they would have to make a 200million dollar AAAA game for Consoles to make up the costs.
