ps4 version is 2% better lol
pedrof93  +   518d ago
The Ps4 version loads faster, the textures have clearly way better resolution, the shadows are way better on Ps4,on the Ps3 version there is a very noticeable blur, not to mention the difference in the fog. But I have to agree that the character models are quiet similar.

If you watch on Full Size there differences are quiet obvious.

I believe a 50 % better.


You also can notice aliasing on the Ps3 version.

Obvious? 50% Better?

Your a fanboy.
Im getting the ps4 with killzone shadow fall. But saying that PS4 version looks 50% better is bullshit.

They just didnt spend alot of time making the next-gen version look good. (Making a game on so many platforms is a hard thing to do)

You can see AA on the rope @ 00:55 in the second video,you can see that the rope and most of the scene does have aliasing all over.

The difference is minimum though,maybe a 20% boost in visuals & physics I would say.

You're right about them not changing much in the PS4 version other than small tweaks here and there,but why call him a fanboy over it? he see's the percentage as 50%,I see it as 20% & you may see only 10%.

Nothing wrong with that.

There is also the water & the blur effect with the character they did on the PS3 version to boost frame rate while they didn't on the PS4.

Just by looking at these videos the most noticeable difference is the water. Other than that, it's very close.

I think we will have to wait a year or two to see true next-gen games. Most games made today have to work on old consoles too so in order to give everyone the same experience, they have to make some sacrifices.

You should have a more clinic eye.'Nough said.

Perhaps you only based your opinion on what you saw partially. The framerate, the view distance, aliasing, texture resolution, shadows, blur, water ,etc.

That's why I said 50 percent.

I think you should educate yourself.

If you go back and look at first generation 360 games compared to Xbox Original games than there were examples of games being not discernible. Such as Dead or Alive.

Wow it's actually quite noticeable, especially in terms of lighting and shadows, they are miles better on the PS4 which means skin tones look more realistic. Better draw distance too.

It's not a huge difference, but definitely noticeable. It was never going to be a huge difference though, because they want to keep parity between platforms to an extent.
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   518d ago
trust me, most of the nerds won't even notice all those things. Also ps4 should be more stable with FPS as im sure ps3 will have some drops here and there..
Braid  +   518d ago
The difference seems minimal, the only noticable difference in the video is the quality of water. Of course there'll be a resolution difference but it seems like the game will be using the same source models/textures on both versions so it's safe to say that this game is definitely "current-gen".

What I'm more curious about is how the PS4 version will hold up against the PC version, though.
mistertwoturbo  +   518d ago
Some of you guys need to get your eyes checked.

There's a clear difference although the core game is the same.
UltimateMaster  +   518d ago
The game itself is built by current gen standards.
As time comes, games will significantly improve over time.

this video doesn't really do it justice.
Here's what the PS4 gives more to than the PS3 doesn't offer.
Better vegetation, better waves and storms.
But remember the last PS2 games compared to the PS3 early games? Not much difference if you ask me.

Look at the water to see some serious difference. Still not much different. Still a cutscene might not be the best way to compare. gameplay would be much better
KUV1977  +   518d ago
Also real gameplay will be much more interesting. Having better framerate and the physics effects. All the cloth animations there are most certainly keyframed in a cutscene so you won't notice that much of an effect. However it is obvious that geometry was created for last gen. ACV will probably look so much better.
Bigpappy  +   518d ago
Could be a straight port. But I would like to see some gameplay.
isa_scout  +   518d ago
I don't know man. The draw distance is clearly better on the PS4 with a much less fog effect, but as far as textures I rather like the PS3 version, not the faces but the clothing. I'll be picking it up along with Killzone regardless, but I must say I was expecting a little bit more from the next-gen version.The colors seem a bit washed out on the next-gen version compared to the PS3.
JimmyLmao  +   518d ago
the fact that it runs at 1080p 60fps on PS4 compared to something like 720p 30fps (a generous guess) on PS3 is already a 450% increase in performance, and this is without taking into account many other things such as better lighting, better particle effects, better weather effetcs, etc.
ANIALATOR136  +   518d ago
I thought it ran at 1080p 30fps on PS4

This is exactly what I feared, this sh*t looks like they just ported the PS3 version to the PS4...

This shit is really sad, all that Bullsh*t about how they are taking advantage of the PS4 and this shit looks like this...

Dam if I didn't already order the digital copy of this sh*t I would cancel immediately -Nex Gen my A$$..!!

You gotta be kidding me, if you can hardly tell the difference that means they didn't do shit, it's just a Port... Simple as that, they ported the game to PS4 - the end...

Pathetic -- Looks at 2k14 PS3 and PS4 -and right away you can tell the nex gen PS4 version -This sh*t here -they didn't even try they just ported the game and added some fog and lens flare, that's nex gen -that's what you think nex gen graphics are.. WTF?

Dam Pathetic... No wonder they pushed back watchdogs this sh*t is as stupid as Call of duty telling me fish A.I is one of the new features... (I guess these companies just feel the consumers are seriously dumb)

If you looked at that and thought that was Nex Gen if you even thought that was 10% better then the PS3 version you are an idiot. (no seriously you don't know a dam thing about graphics)

-better lightning on ps4
-overall all textures are better on ps4
-things are less blurry and slightly sharper on ps4

Conclusion: I am getting PC version.
Shake_Zula  +   518d ago
lol No doubt, if you've got the horsepower for it, the PC version of any game will be better.

...At least you can still use the PS4 controller to play. All in all, you get what you pay for.
Nachoman32  +   518d ago
If you observe closely the Ps4 version has several enhancements:

- Better Ocean Physics
- Higher polygon count for objects
- Soft Shadows
- Better AA
- No cheap Motion Blur
- Better Draw Distance
- Better Native Resolution
- Better Frame Rate

So yeah add that up and you probably got 50% better
gpturbo81  +   518d ago
and? is it gonna make the game better or worse? nope
Ju  +   518d ago
Going by raw specs and technology it's probably far beyond 50%. But then, how can you put a number on something which is pure subjective. Especially when frame rate is capped and resolution matched.

I actually think Ubi did a fantastic job on the PS3 version. This is one of the best looking games on the platform.

I agree however, that I think Ubisoft played this safe in the PS4 version. Could probably be better. Especially number of polys in character model for a game which is so character driven.

Nachoman32  +   518d ago
@gpturbo81, Yes it probably will make the game better as a whole. Especially in terms of the visceral experience. The dynamic effects make the game more believable. And the upgrade in detail certainly makes the game more beautiful. So, in the end subconsciously the game is gonna feel better.
Shake_Zula  +   518d ago
lol Come on, it's better than that!

In the PS4 version, nearly all of the textures are upgraded. Observe the wood grain, hair, battle marks on the armor, the rustic look of the wheel. On top of that, there are many other small things happening in the background like between :45 - :55 where you have the shadow from the ropes on the ship displayed on the black guy as the ship is moving in the PS4 version, but not the PS3 version. Either way, I think this is more testament to how strong the PS3 still is rather than a indication of weakness on the PS4's part. Seriously, the PS3's main problem is that it has VERY small RAM space. I mean, can you imagine how much better the console would be if they re-released it with 2 or 3 GB instead of the 256 MB?

I wonder what the Xbox's versions look like?

Pintheshadows  +   518d ago
Yeah, I guess it will be a bit more noticeable if you buy and play both copies.

Still, I never thought this looked next gen in anyway. It looks nice enough I guess but not amazing. I still think this game was the main reason Watchdogs was delayed. On the new consoles they were launching two games on the same day which would essentially compete with each other. I knew Ubisoft would delay one of them. I guess at this point they probably saw AC4 as easier money.
mynameisq  +   518d ago
True. But online videos never do justice to graphics imo. I saw Fifa 14 on next gen online and it looked exactly like current gen but when I actually played it on PS4 immediately I saw a big difference, not a massive difference but still encouraging signs

I find that launch titles that also exist on previous gen never really showcase the systems potential. Remember the 360 launch? LOL, most of the games looked exactly the same as the Xbox versions with merely a higher resolution output.

The insignificance between the versions could be that they used the last gen systems as the lead platforms then ported up to the PS4/XB1.

But I agree, some cleaner textures and the water looks much better in the PS4 versions. But nothing here to make me jump up and down for.

KUV1977  +   517d ago
Clearly a lot of people care about Killzone!

It always depends on taste. I am mainly a third person action adventure fan and frankly couldn't care less about competitive multiplayer shooters. Killzone is the only shooter I ever played in mp and liked and I have tried lots of PC shooters. Also I don't like the style of wii-games. I don't care for mario and donkey kong. For me the number of WiiU-titles is completely irrelevant because they have exactly zero titles that I like. Doesn't mean it is a bad console. It's just not for me.

I was just making the comment that the 'buy a PC instead' argument is void because a lot of games that people enjoy are not on PC and that is a reason why people prefer consoles - no matter which one - over pc, and raw power won't help it. Buying a pc or upgrading one next to a console makes much more sense. The only games I played on PC recently were StarCraft and Diablo III and both weren'T that great. I am looking forward to StarCitizen but I will not buy a new graphics card for just one game. I hope it comes to PS4 eventually. Chris Roberts said that SONY's business model and architecture may make it possible. Doesn't look very likely but I haven't lost hope yet.

And 4K can barely be achieved with a 30 to 60 FPS on PC,let alone being achieved on the PS4,it's for movies only,not for games on the PS4.

If you followed in with this you'd have known,instead of sounding so bitter.

Yeah and just for the info,I have a Nintendo WiiU & I had a Wii before it,I also had a NES & SNES(poorly crushed by my brother kids),a Nintendo 64 & a gamecube(which I played RE4 on for the first time).

I am a multi console owner,my brother bought an Xbox360 last gen & he might buy the XboxOne this gen,so I have no worries over that too.

Enjoy your bitterness,lol.

"They do look, actually. lol"

No,in all seriousness they don't,not even close.

"Dont get me wrong, I dont have anything against ps4, and I will eventually get one (for MG5), like I did with the ps3. fanboys just need to be realistic and not so much oversensitive."

I'm sure you don't,it shows that you don't.

"Ps4 will be fine, but dont ask for the most beautiful games on it (Best graphics already belong to PC, end of story)."

Never said that PC doesn't hold the crown for the best graphics,but not by much(for now at least) and not excluding the fact that a PC is upgraded at any time,a console is not.

And not forgetting the other fact that not every PC gamer has a rig that can surpass the PS4 in visuals with a steady Frame rate and high res.

"EDIT2: Cool, then buy all and stop defending sony like you work for them (do you? lol)"

I don't,I'm just being honest and you can't handle it,that's your problem,not mine.

Its quite impressive how the old consoles stack up, lets be honest though this game ain't next gen.
OrangePowerz  +   518d ago
The engine shows it`s age since AC3, they should switch to the same engine they use for Watch Dogs.

They have to use depth of field very heavily on the PS3 to save resources.
imXify  +   518d ago
PS4 version is obviously getting 60fps while PS3 stays at 30 you fools :P
Jsoc  +   518d ago
There is some differences , but I say u have to look at them in person and on top of that depends what TV u have it on and if u have the tv in perfect settings , I have 3 different Sony tv 's one is lower basic , one in the middle and a top on the line XBR 240 MHz with motion blur at 960mhz processing ... On the lower end the game looks ok. But on the XBR it looks great... So I don't really judge anything until I see it in person IMO....
The_KELRaTH  +   518d ago
Looks like a typical PC v PS3/360 games comparison - high res v low res textures.
The scene depth is really too small to show off the real differences and of course this is just an animated sequence rather than gameplay.
There seems to be an error at 1.20 with PS4 textures.
Studio-YaMi  +   518d ago
Yeah just noticed that 1:20 too!
seemed like the textures was washed out for 6 seconds then it become crisp again.

Good eye!
FANTA1180  +   518d ago
i gotta say they both look very alike, some textures are noticable , but for the most part its very similar the ocean looks alot better on ps4 , but the ps4 version also looks blander color wise , ps3 looks a bit more colorful.
jay2  +   518d ago
People saying theirs little to no difference need to wear glasses. Look at the sea. Sky. Wood. The ship and island in video 2.....

but does that make the game more fun? Because the water looks more detailed in the background? Because you can see splinters in the wood?

Nobody said there was no difference to the textures and details, but that alone doesn't justify a $400 purchase.

1st party games will do a better job of showcasing what the PS4 can really do.
Heisenburger  +   518d ago
I'm about sick and tired of people saying things like "$400 for better water" and the crap you just spewed. Does the game centered around piracy and sailing benefit from better water? Yeah...

"THIS" doesn't justify a $400 purchase? Who said it did?
Have you ever played a console before? Let me break it down for you:

The console is worth $400 dollars. It's that simple bro.

ACIV and Shadow Fall are my two launch games. I'm not buying my PS4 for either. I'm buying it because I want the new Playstation.

In all seriousness though, you must be a younger gamer. I say this not as an insult, but as a statement of fact. Because you definitely haven't grasped all of the aspects of this hobby and culture.

Just plead ignorance(lack of knowledge) and learn from others.

Don't be afraid, because GREATNESS AWAITS.
Neonridr  +   518d ago
wow, did you even read my post before you went off on that tirade? You seriously need to calm yourself down. The system is coming, I know it's a painful 3 weeks away but chill my friend...

Have I ever played a console before? No, what's that.. what kind of dumb question is that?

I was merely offering my opinion that the differences are very cosmetic and minor at that. I was only stating my opinion that you could get the PS3 version and still be quite happy.

If you bothered to read the last part of my post you would see that I clearly stated that it's the 1st party titles (Killzone falls under that category) that will showcase the power of the PS4. Not a 3rd party title that is clearly being developed across multiple platforms, not being built from the ground up for next gen consoles.

Dude I am 34 years old and my first "gaming" console was a Colecovision, so why don't you stop with your childish assumptions and read before you go blowing your top off.
FullmetalRoyale  +   518d ago
I didn't read your reply. I'll just assume it was a long winded way of saying that you are sorry.

Apology accepted, friend.

Be well. :)
jay2  +   518d ago
1st party games will do a better job of showcasing what the PS4 can really do. So true everything else out there (accept PC), are weaker than the PS4, PS4 will come out on top, but it won't ever show it's true power on Multi-format.
jronj  +   518d ago
PS4 looks better but I'm not sure that it looks $400 better. Doesn't YouTube cap something anyway? Are we seeing the real difference between the two?
leahcim  +   518d ago
is like HD version of an HD version.

not impressed here.

Nex-gen for my is iNFAMOUS SECOND SON.
The Meerkat  +   518d ago
This is just a current gen game made to run on the next gen.

Now if a PS4 is able to emulate a PS3 it means it has one hell of a lot of power.
Whitey2k  +   518d ago
I see that the water has pretty much improved on the ps4 version the characters on the clothing and skin looks more sharper and clearer and theres AA on ps4 version n better draw distance and if anyone noticed the wood on the boats looks real on the ps4 side and ps3 version looks washedand blurred
Kurogane  +   518d ago
LMAO!!!! The ps4 version looks remastered LOL!!!!!!
Holeran  +   518d ago
Ps3 holds up pretty well for last gen.
ATi_Elite  +   518d ago
OMG look at that PORT!

Seriously there were times that the PS3 version looked better.

This is OBVIOUSLY a game made on PS3 and just DUMPED on the PS4 so NO need to compare a RUSHED port.

PS4 is better than this.
Tzuno  +   518d ago
face the reality and open your eyes. you sound hurt. next gen consoles are not worth.
Ol_G  +   518d ago
how can they port from ps3 if they port it from pc build
also ps4 can't play ps3 games but somehow this is an upscaled ps3 version please don't be delusional
Naughty__Boy  +   518d ago
why is the sword on ps4 a lot thinner is it not the same one?
only exclusive games will show the true power of the ps 4. in about 3-4 years ksf might look next gen.
Tzuno  +   518d ago
and they call it next gen pff... I'll stick with the PC from now on next gen console graphical leap is smoke and mirrors.
PFFT  +   518d ago
They are close to identical. Ive been playing the PS3 version since last week and what ive noticed are minor things missing from the PS4 footage ive seen. Like water getting into the jackdaw when there are actives waves in the ocean or the smoke of the cannons when firing. And of course the PS4 version has better smoother textures. All in all both version look great.
9meez  +   518d ago
I see no major difference except the sea water :( :(
young7yang  +   518d ago
I would like to see how the Wii U version of the game runs compared to the ps4 version of the game...

I am curious to see how good the frame rate is
#26 (Edited 518d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
Yep  +   518d ago
Ubisoft said somewhere in between. Considering the PS4 version looks exactly 0.5% better than the PS3 version, I guess we can conclude that the Wii U version will look exactly 0.25% better.... lol.
DevilishSix  +   518d ago
I can diffently see the added detail in textures and the resolution is clean whereas PS3 has a slight washed out look. Out of focus background has much better detail. The added effects for saw weather effects and no loading screens I can not judge as I didn't see that kind of footage.
WorldGamer  +   518d ago
TBH, given the technological gap, they are really close. I would chalk that up to it being a first generation game for the PS4.

Still a nice looking game on both systems, but I don't think we will be seeing the PS4 really flex it's muscles until the next wave of games, save for a few games like KZ:SF.

I might have to pick this one up since Watchdogs was delayed. What a shame with that and Drive Club, but the extra time should yield some impressive goodies I believe.
sigfredod  +   518d ago
The stichs and details on the leather way better on the ps4, the sea is way more real on the ps4, better drawn distance you can see looking the islands and boats on the background, picture is way crisper on the ps4 aswell and the AA helps a lot too
ArcadePixels  +   518d ago
Ubisoft really needs to start building games from the ground up for next-gen if they want to sell cross-gen games on PS4 and Xbox One next year.
