It's amazing that PS4 is already this good w/ the PS3 going as strong as it is and GT6 has yet to drop. Sony has something really, really special on there hands here w/ these two beasts. Personally I can't keep up - I'm so broke! :P

You forgot that Beyond 2 Souls is about to drop also. That game might give TLOU a run for it's money. I really can't wait to see what Sony's 1st Party Studios can do with the PS4.

It's always great news when a 3rd party publisher let alone a great Indie studio gives you praise.

No one can deny that the PS4 if the most powerful console ever conceived. Cant wait to get mine.
sonarus  +   784d ago
@Mwong i will agree with you that TLOU was great but personally i am not a big fan of all these choose your own adventure type games like heavy rain. I simply lack the patience. Last of us started slow i bought it and launch and honestly stopped playing like 2 hrs in thats how impatient i am. It wasnt until a friend essentially forced me to play it that i finally finished the rest of the game in about 3 days. This was only about a month ago and i will say definitely one of the best PS3 games I have played and is up there for me with MGS4 as a game that blew my expectations away.

I don't see anyway i could have enough patience to enjoy beyond souls regardless how good the game looks and i am a graphics whore. I hope to see more impressive games than Killzone shadow fall by next yr because so far that is the most impressive game graphically shown so far but is still not 16x better than current PS3 games like sony claims. I am not expecting 16x better games but i want to see games that leave no doubt that they couldn't run on PS3.

mewhy32- Most powerful console conceived? I take it you completely missed out on the recent announcement for the SteamBox or whatever they're going to call it. Even the slowest hardware configuration kicks the crap out of both the PS4 and Xbone. See... Valve put an actual desktop CPU and GPU in their console, both of which have their own dedicated memory (fast DDR3 for CPU and fast GDDR5 for GPU). Shared memory like PS4/Xbone utilize is what's commonly referred to as "laptop tech", like every other component Sony and M$ are using.

I had hoped these "next-gen" consoles would have gone with a hardware setup like the low-end steambox. But they didn't.

And I'm sure someone will complain that steambox is "just a PC running linux", which is true. But the same goes for PS4. Both systems use a closed linux based OS.
And another person will b*tch about price. Well... at least with the steambox you can upgrade the GPU or CPU in a few years and not have to replace the whole thing.
Towards the end of the PS3's cycle, look how pathetic it started looking...

Skyrim on PS3-

Skyrim on my PC- (i had to shrink this down to 1280x800 to closer match the PS3's 1280x720 resolution)

This is exactly why long platform cycles like consoles have done in recent years end up holding back graphics technology and innovation. My Skyrim screenshot is running a bunch of mods, but it clearly shows how much better graphics would be if they made consoles more powerful OR if they would run shorter cycles between platforms. If PS3 and 360 weren't so weak, I guarantee Bethesda would have released Skyrim with graphics like my modded version.

And with such an already weak PS4/xbone... the cycle repeats itself.

And I GUARANTEE that neither the PS4 or Xbone will ever be able to produce graphics like my PC Skyrim screenshot. (btw... it looks like that while running 1600p/60fps). Neither console has the power to match my "Last-Gen" GTX680 which currently costs less than either the PS4 or xbone.

Groo  +   784d ago

why is it that PC fanboys can't help themselves to try and bash anything console? Everyone has a preference be it handheld, Ipad, console, pc etc to game. I don't believe many console gamers will go into a PC oriented article/comment section and just start bashing on PC's. If PC is so great then why would you need to bash on consoles in the first place? are you jealous? are you bored? you aren't going to convince anyone of anything by trying to bash consoles to make yourself feel better.

If you have that much time on your hands, more power to you. Sounds like the symtoms of a bored troll.

DigitalRaptor  +   784d ago
You say it looks like a stupid mobile game. You should be asking yourself "does it play like a mobile game?" - and the answer would be... Nope.

Regardless of any kind of shallow judgement you can throw out about these types of games, they will always be made to perform to the strengths of the console. Resogun is another strong example.

Great/Lucky/Great design decisions are paying dividends for this next gen.

I really do not understand Microsoft. Not talking about all the 180s but I guess its related - am talking about releasing their console too early when not fully ready.

PS4 caught them off gaurd in Feb. I believe MS were geared up for a 2014 release. They have rushed just to compete.

It would of been more clever to let Sony have their end of 2013 glory then hit back with some hardware improvements to match if not better the power of the PS4 in say 6 months or so.

Microsoft's haste has meant all they seem to be doing this past summer is chasing Sony's tail. Missed a great chance here MS!

@ vigilante
I agree, to me the xbox one keeps reminding me of the sega saturn. i hope it doesnt end that way, but it still seems to have that same feeling.
dmeador  +   784d ago

I still dont understand why people keep saying this. If you were a company and had 5 years to plan a console, what season would you want that product to launch? And if you look at the launch games, its clear the devs didn't plan on another year in development. Look at the big multi-plats coming out. You can be sure that the major publishers knew the time table all along, they would not spend the resources getting a title ready for a system when they had an extra 6 months.

The X1 isn't chasing so much as reverting. The backlash turned them back into the standard console setup. You can't chase much on the hardware side, they cant do much about having a few less horses under the hood

The PS4 is not overrated. It is going to be a great console that I am looking forward to owning sometime in the spring. It is easy to get burnt out though on n4g. This site is a Sony circlejerk if I ever saw one with articles like these being a perfect example of another unnecessary affirmation of how powerful the PS4 will be when it already speaks for itself. My advice to you if you are not a troll, is to find a more balanced site where people are excited for the PS4 but do not worship it.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   783d ago

then why is everyone giving Ryse a hard time, and every other launch X1 game?

Is it because the really cool thing to do right now on game boards is to make fun of the X1? It's so hot to bash it right? I've never seen anyone defend X1 games being launch titles... just how weak the X1 is.
Syntax-Error  +   784d ago
Enough with this fanboy bullshit! Both consoles will me amazing. They both have features that stand out on it's own merit. That pick a side nonsense is juvenile an immature as shit. An XBO exclusive will look amazing for it's console and a PS4 exclusive will look amazing for it's console, period. Multiplatforms will be identical regardless of what platform was lead because they are so very close in architecture unlike current gen.

QZP - You must be the only idiot still calling it Xbox 180. Hey why dont you try going back to hating COD and EA since the trend slowed down. Maybe you can rejuvenate the hate train. #FOLLOWERSALWAYSFOLLOW

Not everyone has the money to get 2 consoles in one year. If you state otherwise then let me borrow a couple hundreds.

According to you, one "Xbox One dev" says it, it's a fact. "Multiple developers" say the PS4 is more powerful and easier to develop for, it's a lie.

Xbox fanboy logic is getting worse every time a fact gets proven more and more each passing day with developers. By the way, there's more games on the PS4 that is running 1080p native which proves a more easier to develop console. Why is Ryse running on 900p native and Killer Instinct running at 720p, a game that doesn't match Ryse graphics. You'll never answer because you're obviously blinded. Microsoft PR dollars are doing a good job on you so far.

PS4 does not use a 7850.

Sorry GDDR5 has much to do with the framerate,simple because it can move big chunks of data at high speed!It moves almost 3x plus faster than DDR3,WITH GDDR5 you dont have to slice data in small chunks like DDR3 to move upstream,Big chunks of data plus high speed equals better framerates;less pop ins,better lods,bigger textures...............

Well, I think you can do the math.
If the PS4's GPU = 1.8 Teraflops....& XBONE's GPU = 1.3 Teraflops, then the PS4's GPU is approx 40% more powerful..... approx.
hollabox  +   783d ago
So if you think I can do the math what's the point of responding? Every other article the performance difference seem to change regarding how much more powerful. Some say 50 percent, some say 40 percent, MS says 30 percent or less because they have more capable Audio hardware and a faster CPU, similar to the PS3 advantages over the X360. By Sony own math the PS4 is weaker than the PS3 (1.84 vs 2TFLOP claim based on Sony official specs) if you go purely off TFLOPs. That's why I asked the question which one is it? Well I guess it was a waste of time asking that question on this site. I'm probably going with 30 percent after reading multiple technical articles on both consoles which in the end probably means one platform will use more upscaling than the other.

Persistantthug  +   783d ago
I didn't say anything about audio chips, bro.
I didn't say anything about CPU, or ram, or bluetooth, or upscale chips, or HDMI cables.

I said that from a raw numbers standpoint, PS4's GPU (1.8 Teraflops) is approx 40% more powerful than the XBOX One's GPU (1.3 Teraflops).

That's basic's easy to calculate, and it's basically true.
If you have a problem with this, as it's not randomly generated nonsense......well, respectfully, I guess that would be your own personal issue.

Take care, hollabox.

PS... The reason I and many others are so focused on the "GPU" as much as we are, is because these are both GPU-centric consoles.
Had they been using IBM based CPUs ( POWER PC based ) instead of AMD, then I'd be more interested in including the CPU single precision flops.
But if you wish, you can add 0.1 Teraflops to both consoles, but it's rather pointless considering AMD is X86.
#6.4 (Edited 783d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
hollabox  +   783d ago
If you don't get it the whole point I was making is the totality of both systems. The PS4 monster GPU is 40% more powerful, plain simple easy enough to understand, but XB1 CPU is around 10 faster with audio hardware twice the reported performance. That is why I'm leaning more towards 30 percent or less since TFLOPS like MHZ can be misleading regarding hardware performance.

As mentioned before no doubt the PS4 graphical performance trumps the PS3 but yet PS3 CPU core is twice as fast (3.2GHZ compared to rumored 1.6) with higher overall TFLOPS performance. In the end as mentioned before I think most games will come down to upscaling
Persistantthug  +   783d ago

With all due respect,
I think it's you who is truly not getting it.
This whole article and topic's premise is about the GPU.

Again, the reason people--including the article itself--are so focused on the "GPU", is because these X86 machines are GPU-centric.
And with that, PS4's GPU is approx 40% more powerful than the XBONE's GPU. Period.

Btw, PS3's total output--GPU + CPU--was approx 400 GFlops (0.4 Teraflops).
I have read that Sony said the PS3 was 2 Teraflops or something like that, but that was a lie.....basically.

Anyways, since you're out of bubbles, you can PM me if you want.
I'll teach you how to do the math on GPU GFLOPS calculation. The BEYOND3D forum guys showed me a few months ago. It's surprisingly simple.

Take care, hollabox.

Gaijin Entertainment, the developers of War Thunder recently claimed that the PS4’s GPU is 40% more powerful than the Xbox One. So we made sure to ask about the console’s GPU and whether it’s eased out the number of things you can do on screen in the game.
“From a pure tech perspective it’s undeniable that the PS4 GPU will make it the most powerful console in the world and for us that means we can turn on every visual flourish we want while keeping a smooth & responsive 60fps. We’re focused on every version running at 60fps including Vita, frame rate is king.”

the thing is i'm not gonna say the xone is weak but i've never heard any dev say it was stronger that the Ps4 its always the other way around just saying. thats all the proof i need, http://farm4.staticflickr.c... i look at this and im blown away everytime.

When Rockstar Games' Dan Houser was asked what do he think of the Xbox One and the PS4 , he said both are identical but the GPU of the PS4 is better but instead the Xbox One have the better CPU advantage
thechosenone  +   784d ago
And yet Killer Instinct runs at 720p/60fps, Ryse 900p/30fps What the hell is the point of that massive CPU if it can't help increase graphics/res/fps.
IHassounah  +   784d ago
Looks like you don't even know what a CPU do , right ? it organize the way the system runs meaning the CPU isn't a GPU , the GPU does all the visuals and the CPU manage to handle the smooth gameplay and easy functionalities , now that Sony denied the huMA chips to be displayed in the PS4 at Hot Chips Los Vegas , Microsoft on the other hand announced HSA as a GPU and a CPU combiner meaning that it's easy to program for the system on just one side , later on the OS could use 0.3% of RAM so it can operate the Xbox One and that means that developers will have 7.083GB of RAM to use for their games , on the PS4 instead they used most of the RAM on games and the built in software could fail if Sony does not fix it meaning the PS4 in the future will use 14% of RAM for the OS and give 4.000034GB of RAM meaning eventually the Xbox One will get better over time and given to that people don't realize how the PS4 and the
Xbox One are Identical in somehow , not even a GDDR5 or eSRAM will make something better for both sides .

Don't see 4K sets being even in the ballpark of "affordable" for another 2 year's, that's why I bought a newer set earlier this year. Hell, OLED sets seem a bit pricey still.

I don't think either of the consoles are capable of games running in 4K. We'll see.

Not the point. His comment's not about who has what, it's what the console's able to do. If those specs he's posted are right, the game'll run on any old laptop.

And what's the point of rendering at native 4K or near it if it doesn't benefit the majority of people?

Why waste resources on that. Am pretty sure it could if they wanted to but Sony have said PS4 wouldn't play games at 4k that may be mandated. I mean if the PS4 can produce graphics like KZ:SF SP at 1080p 30fps --->
why doubt it wouldn't be able to run this game at 4k if they wanted to?
MidnytRain  +   784d ago

I took cunnilumpkin's comment hypothetically, the point being that with recommended specs like that, it's pointless to say how well the console runs it when the game itself isn't even demanding.

This game was designed to run on the PS3. So yeah. It's a last gen game running on a nextgen system. On the PC even modest systems are ripping it apart. It's like saying WoW will run at 1080p 60 fps, which is a none achievement.
MRMagoo123  +   784d ago
The same could be said about Ryse and DR3 both made for the 360 yet we all know how thats turned out with the 900p and 720p respectively and less than 60 fps.
EXVirtual  +   784d ago
It's good to know that the PS4 is a very powerful console. I'm very excited to play next-gen games with not only good graphics and frame-rate, but good physics simulation and larger worlds. FFXIV being at 1080p 60fps really surprised me.

The PS4 era is going to be sweet. I'll be even more impressed of they get War Thunder at 60fps.

MASTER_RAIDEN  +   784d ago
not sure if trolling but that definitely made me LOL. anyway i just think that using the term "most in the world" implies a certain vastness that isnt really there. when i hear something is "the most powerful in the world" i picture a thing or being rising above several different counterparts and competitors outshine them all.
while the ps4 does outshine the one technically, its not like there are also 100 other different console makers the ps4 also outshines. its JUST the ps4 vs the xbox one.

its a lot like when a football team wins one game and saying that football team is now "undefeated". while technically true, thats still a totally unneccessary use of the term. does that mean the xbox one can start calling itself "the LEAST powerful next gen console in the world!"? (cause wii u doesnt count)

You missed my point, the PS4 is in fact the most powerful console ever made, so far. More powerful than the Super Nintendo, the Commodore 64 etc etc. in the history of technology there has not been a home gaming console as powerful as the PS4, therefor my point is still valid, I think you misunderstood. The fastest car in the world is only faster to others by a margin but still holds the record until a new car inputs more ponies

Funny 1 misquote from a article and now the xoxo boys run with it. You should wacth the video . A reporter asked does killzone sf running in 1080p 60fsp . GG joking said sometimes if 24 grenade go off at once it dips. All game dip frame rate pc or console . Killzone sf is running 1080p 60fsp please stop talking. also xbone is running BF4 at 720p PS4 is running BF4 900p . EA is in bed with MicroSCAM and are gimping the PS4 so xbone lame wont look inferior to the PS4 to much.

remind me again what BF4 is running at on the One80....Oh that's right 720p just like Killer instinct and Dead Rising 3...Wow looks like ALL the One80 launch titles are running at less than 1080p...If Ryse is 900p upscaled lol, most likely means that Forza will be less and than upscaled also

no game harnessed that power. to be the best looking and playing game on ps3 was TLOU, and even that had texture and aliasing issues.

saying most powerful console is like saying most powerful station wagon

while it may be true

there is a whole world of more power out there!

1920x1200, 2560x1440, 2560x1600, 5760x1080

4x msaa

60 frames
120 frames

using powerful and console in the same sentence is kinda like saying jumbo shrimp

if it was truly powerful it could handle bf4 in native 1080p at higher than medium settings

its a 3 year old game engine that runs on 3 year old mid-spec pc's in higher settings and resolutions that this "powerful" console can run it
ssj27  +   784d ago
There is technology that can do over 8k at 1.000 fps..
my point is what's you point?

The best developers are makind games for the PS4 and will be making games for it in the next few year's.

Games is what make me be a gamer not resolution or fps.. those are just plusses.
The PS4 is powerful enough to do native 1080p at 60fps at that is going to be something new for the 98% of the gamers community.

Now 1080p and 60fps is not good enough? Obviously it abd it will be for the next few years.

If ganes like BF4 are doing 900p at 60fps does not mean the PS4 can't handle 1080p at 60fps Killzone SF looks 2 times nicer and it has way more advanced technology than BF4 and it's doing 1080p natively and multiplayers runs 60fps smooth.

And don't tell me BF4 has destruction .. that is just a design decision .. same goes for 64players .. KILLZONE could do that to but it does not goes with their design, ganeplay.
Beastforlifenoob  +   784d ago
My 2 year old mid range PC(just under a thousand dollars after getting some items on discounts) at the time can run battlefield 4 beta at Ultra 1080p ~35FPS.

If the PS4 cant even handle ultra or 1080p I would say Im gaming on my midrange PC for another 2 years boi.

And where do you plug the controller into the gpu ? Where does the power to the gpu come from ?

theXtReMe1  +   783d ago
Battlefield 4 could run at 1080P and 60 frames per second on the PS4 and look as good as the high settings(not max) on the PC if they had gone down to the metal and tried to get the most out of it. The problem is, theyve only spent a minimal amount of time with the consoles and don't know how to get the most out of them yet. Guaranteed when battlefield five hits, it will be 1080P and 60 frames per second and look almost as good as the highest settings on the PC.

I laugh at PC fanboys who do everything they can to justify the thousands of dollars they spend every few years, upgrading their PCs so they can get an extra five frames per second out of it. While console owners tend to enjoy the same game, with slightly lesser visuals, for a fifth of the price you pay... over 5 or more years, as developers learn and exploit the next gen hardware even more.

Why can't you just enjoy what you have and not have to jump into every console thread and try to find reasons to down them. If you want to spend thousands of dollars yearly so you can claim that extra inch in a pissing contest, that is your prerogative. But you don't have to show your balls at every opportunity you get, just to justify the money youve spent over the years... That console owners haven't.

All that money spent, trying to extend you E penis, or whatever you try to do by playing a game at 120 frames per second at max settings, possibly bragging rights? Is money I, and many other gamers, used to save for their future and live in nice homes with gorgeous families, or even comfortably by themselves... Knowing they didnt spend their rent money so they can brag on a gaming forum about something that matters not, to real life.

Next time you're at the store and you are looking at that thousand dollar video card that you don't need, think of all the money you spent for your gaming rig so you could go on gaming forums and brag about the extra 10 frames per second you get over consoles. Because the only person you're impressing by doing so... is yourself and the stores, whos lease youve just paid for the next month.

I and many other gamers, will be enjoying pretty much the same next gen visuals for $400 in November. The cost of a decent video card, alone, for a PC. Remember that most game development is based around the consoles anyways. So our games, that you brag your system can play better, are limiting most of the functions that your $400 video card can do... anyways. So then you are left with your extra frames per second, that don't matter at all past 60.

Leaving you with games that are gimped and have you playing the same title with almost the same visuals... As we are. So then you have to question yourself, what did I spend all that money for? When I could've just spent $400 and been done with it and not wasted time or money on something that matters very little to the actual gameplay of any game.

Or maybe it's worth it to diehard PC gamers to spend all that money to make themselves feel better about their lives. Either way, console owners win because they spend their time playing games and enjoying them for what they are instead of going on gaming forums and talking about how much better they could be at 4k and 2000fps.

All those pundits a few months ago saying next gen graphical differences wouldn't be that noticeable were completely wrong. With Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls, the PS3 gave a sample of next gen graphics. The PS4, with examples like the playable demo of Infamous:SS, shows what kind of fluidity, range of motion and volumetric particle effects are being rolled out in the beginning days of a new console generation and next gen graphics, with the PS4 and no other.

PS4 is an astounding console then again Xbox One looked best of show graphics at EGX with BF4 (demo is shite though) and Watch_Dogs looked amazing on PS4. Both consoles are massive fun and both do superb games but only one has titanfall and thats the game for me next after playing it. I will get both consoles though as I don't like to miss a good game.

Rekoil is another game I want to see in action from Plastic Pirahna. We are doing a skype this week so hopefully a lot of new info on that too. Lets just love all consoles including the SNES ahh good times.
