1. Why? why even bother with this comparison 2. even on Low the PC version looks better 3. Compare PC Ultra Nvidia to PC Ultra AMD. 4. Frostbite 3 scales very well and what separates Low from Ultra is AA and a lot of post processing effects
Ultra on Nvidia will be the same as Ultra on AMD...
LOL... ultra settings for both amd and nvidia will look the same. what ails you?
Ultra settings are ultra settings. The only thing you can measure on PC is frames per second. Will AMD cards have better frame rates compared to Nvidia is the question. Some games run better on AMD, and some run better on Nvidia. Its about the developers tools and how they optimized there code. But you can't compare graphic quality because ultra is .....ultra.
it is an AMD optimized game, and early reports indicate that the game does indeed run better on AMD.
Ultra will look the same on AMD and NVidia GTX cards. There is a possibility of a performance(fps) disparity but that's all. Ultra settings such as 4xMSAA, post-processing, ambient occlusion, textures, exc. are universally the same across all cards so long as the hardware is capable.
There may be a tiny difference in different techs (e.g. Nvidia has PhysX, HBAO, TAXX, etc, etc) and im sure AMD have some aswell. Other than that it will be practically the same and even after what i mentioned above it will look very,very,very similar.
Playing bf4 on consoles, that's a noob move hahahaha
Youtube is very bad for comparisons thanks to fps lock plus it also scales down meaning xbox actually looks better than it is. Comparison vids are best left for other websites. Also there comparing close up with xbox to far away with pc to try to make xbox look better just watch..
3. Compare PC Ultra Nvidia to PC Ultra AMD. This clown. lol
Stupid comparison. That's a low spec laptop. Mid spec would have been a 770m or something.
WOW, The xbox BF4 actually look better than I thought.
Its because Youtube compresses video. 1080p vs 720p is a huuuuuuuuuuuugeeeeeeeeee difference that you cant tell from youtube.
Being that I have yet to preorder on PC, I tried a bit of the beta on 360. I thought it it was a blurry mess with jaggies absolutely everywhere. That's not even the PC gamer in me talking . . . that's just what it looks like. That's even playing on a 23" monitor. I promise you that these videos tell a different story than what is actually on offer with the 360 version. It really does look better in these videos than it does playing it.
As a PC/PS3 player I got the PS3 beta yesterday and I'll extend that blurry mess comment to the PS3 as well. I'm going to try the PC version tonight (just got my email to log into origin for the Beta). As far as the console fan in me, I am very interested in seeing what the final specs will be on the PS4/X1 versions. If it is closer to the PC specs or the current gen specs.
Looks OK, though I'd rather wait for next gen to witness it's full potential.
That what I thought when I saw this comparison and, having played the bf4 beta on ps3, I can tell you that it looks better on 360 (by this video anyway).
Neither impress me tbh.
Play on a PC on ultra its looks 10X better than this vid trust me I played yesterday. Looks amazing plays at 60FPS on my 7970 haswell machine on ultra 4X MSAA @1080P :)
I know man, Youtube should create a proper HD gaming section, their compression methods are no longer usable for show casing modern graphics imo.
Pc purchase for me. Recently starting to feel uninspired by the current gen visuals. Likely due to all the exposure to recent pc games and videos of next gen titles
The inability of nextgen to hit 1080p on all titles is simply put, pathetic. 1080p isn't hard or technically demanding. If you can't do 1080p on your console then you're not nextgen. I'm at a total lost on why BF4 and Assasin Creed 4 are in 720p.
Assasin's Creed 4 is 1080p on Next gen
hey man the PS4 is a Supercharged PC. better than all PC's in the world rolled up into one. like a Purrito http://i292.photobucket.com...
No, the PS4 is already old tech. The GPU is capable of about 1.8 teraflops. That's only slightly better than a 7850. It's hardly "supercharged." Although, devs will be able to make games look better than they would on any 7850 because console games are optimized like crazy.
I was being sarcastic Jneal :-). I just love that characterization of old technology
And PC looks better in every way. The lighting is way better. The water looks way better. The dust after the building collapse looked better. On consoles the dust is like a haze but on PC there is individual dust clouds inside the main one. The clouds in the sky are grouped together more on consoles than PC.
Entire effects ripped out of the console version. The car fires don't even give off smoke but there is a tonne of volumetric cloud on PC from fires and the building. Much better water, much better sky box, much better character fidelity and textures. Much more subtle lighting effects and shadows very evident in the shots of the character closeups where we also see all these particle effects misting the air in the background near the crates on the PC version. Far better modelling on the gloved hand and arm and weapons and buildings. This is obvious even from an awful low bit rate YouTube video and discounts the fact the resolution and framerate and total lack of screen tearing and far superior anti aliasing on PC alone makes the game look much nicer when you play it in person. Duh. It's the PC version. It'll always look way better. Battlefield 3 looked way better. Can't say it's like the cutting edge because in 2 years since BF3 we have had even better looking PC games like Crysis 3 and last light etc but it looks good enough for purpose.
I don't understand what people like in this game. I was watching some live gameplay on TwitchTv. And its just like COD! extremely fast paced and light weighted feels like players are sliding on ice, carrying a paper gun. Its so unrealistic...
Just like COD? nope. play it and you will see.
That doesn't change the fact the gameplay had extremely fast paced and light weighted. Players felt like were sliding on ice wearing ice skates instead of army boots shooting paper gun. Sorry but dose not qualify as good game for me. Having paper light animations...
While I would not say that it as heavy as say Killzone, it is not like sliding on ice and the weapons do have weight to them as well. However it does feel a little more fast paced than bf3 I am in the beta so I have first hand experience.
@ Haules, The vehicle warfare in the game differentiates the game from COD. Also there is no run and gun Rambo like killstreaks in this game like in COD. Team work is a must for BF especially the 64 player PC version (and surely by comparison the X1/PS4 versions) . I'm curious as to if you've ever played BF.
not going to lie, i agree with you Haules. i liked BF3 a lot, but the feel from BF2/BF2142 even Bad Company 2 reminded me too much of CoD. not the gunplay, the gunplay in CoD was waaaaaaaay to easy, but the movement with accuracy.
Just like cod except there is tanks and jets and helicopters and boats and parachutes and vertical gameplay and destruction and actual objective and big maps and it looks better and there are classes that change the way you play and squads. But it's the same, I swear. There are both guns and bullets so it's the same. Just like quake.
I watched an episode of Fresh Prince today. It was quite good. Will Smith is a legend.
Final retail version, on PC anyway, will look improved over the beta. By how much is anyone's guess.
pc version has better smoke effect when the building collapses, everything else looks about the same
I thought the pc is "SO" much more superior? It looks like the same experience on 360,7 year old tech....
just might want to get your eyes checked. the pc version is sharper, has better colors, more effects, better textures, runs smoother, higher fps, and is at a higher resolution.
When you play a PC game at 1080p, Hundred fps, eVery single detail or video option turned to the max, you will recant that statement. I been gaming on all platforms for a long time and when you play PC games on ultra, 1080p or 1920x1200, its almost impossible to go back. One thing you are right about is that it is the same experience. That is my concern too. While the quality of PC may be out of this world, has the gameplay evolved into a next gen experience? From what I have read and heard, it is not. The only pro for PC is having higher quality visuals leading to having ..better ability to see enemies in contrast to a blurry xbox360. That is the only thing. Granted dice has used these tools to create maps that change over time and that is good: im just concerned that will the gameplay get boring. I just hope developers get more creative with the current tools they have; driving the experience to make players say, "wow! Now that's next gen."
I respect your opinion so in favor i ask you respect mine by saying 1080p really is over rated.
A lot of people are in serious denial here. There is NO COMPARISON of the 360/ps3 bf to the pc. Hell most games on larger maps on the console version of BF3 were barren deserts for lack of enough players on the map to support an already condensed version. Its why I stopped playing the console version of BF3. As stated by countless others, the next gen players will at lest be able to get the real BF experience , albeit with lesser graphics.
Xbox 360 still looks good for an 8 year old system. I would have thought graphics on PC should be vastly ahead by now. But it is not a huge difference. Guess graphics don't improve like they use too. For example the Dreamcast was released about 9 years after SNES and the graphics difference is like night and day.
vídeo compression afercts quality and for sure it was not a hi end pc. maybe a mid range one. bf3 on my rig looks way better
agreed. its much better in-game on your own screen on ultra. and the textures are much better in game than on this vid. looks like they are using 2k or 4k textures on the people this time. really looks good IMO
huge difference!? not same but expected more!
I'll get it on the ps4.
I guess disagrees are from people that will try to stop you from buying it on PS4. Watch your back.
@boing1 ikr......but that was funny!
horrible comparison video. never in the same or near the same position. can't focus on an object to compare when the view point is changing.
I expected it to look worse on consoles. Not bad.
the game looks better and runs alot better than BF3 for me. my GTX 580 runs at over 40FPS on ultra and that is good enough for me :D
If your PC run BF 3 at 1080p 60 fps then it will probably run BF 4 at 1080p 60 fps. There is absolutely no reason to upgrade.
I'm curious, which CPU do you have?
an i7 3960-X overclocked at 4GHz BTW: i actually had worse performance on BF3
Holy fucking cow that i7 is powerful. Honestly, my i5 3570k is bottlenecking my HD7850 in both BF3 and BF4 I believe, but the performance is a lot better in BF3 for me. BF4 is nearly 50% more of a CPU hog than BF3.
yeah, so i hear. but the BF4 beta only uses around 45% of my CPU here XD highest i had is at 52% i think.
I have that same issue with my 3570k I have two gtx560ti 448 classified ultras running in sli with the same memory interface as the 670 yet on bf3 I have some unnatural slowdown. Could it be driver related or as you said bottleneck. Anyone have any thoughts on that? Time to upgrade to haswell or get a 670 - 780 ?
both bf are really cpu intensive. Went from amd 955 at 4.0 ghz on a 670 in 1680*1050 to a i7 4770k at 4.5 ghz in 2560*1440 and actually gained smoothness.
compare same spec pc to same spec ps4 and xbox make it a fair comparision
So I guess it's not fair to compare ps4 games and xbox one games either in your mind since they also have different specs from each other? Life's not fair, it's something you're going to have to learn someday. If you're so insecure about not having the best graphics then buy a PC.
i dont like comparisions because they arent fair anyways PS4 has beter hardware than xbox.. i never said compare but when articles pop up i have to give my opinion about whats the best its diffrent when u compare consoles to pcs.. lets see a pc with a 400$ range outdo a ps4 or xboxone..
Oh so you're not going to buy any games or extra controllers? You're not going to play online at all either I take it. Yeah sounds fun.....You people and your $400 posts hehe. It's a marathon not a sprint, and consoles lose the race.
BF4 looks very good at 360, I tried the PS3 and PC version and I liked. Obviously the PC version is better, but there isn't a big difference. PS3/360 have a big number of users ( 160 millions) and maybe the game is optimized for this huge market. I'll get for PS3 and then I'll upgrade for PS4 for 10 bucks.
Been playing pc at high settings for the last couple of days but went on my 360 today for a game with a couple of freinds and my god, the 360 looks terrible! This video doesnt show just how undecorated the terrain is on 360. There are almost no textures present and the resolution looks like old school 800x600 at times. Anyone who thinks the 360 or ps3 versions are anywhere near to pc are wrong.
