Where's the Xbox One or PS4 Battlefield 4 Review?

Mitchy D, IGN Editor and the reviewer for BF 4 says "Purely from a gameplay perspective, I can say with confidence that Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 4 and PC are equally excellent. The two are visually comparable, with minor detail differences if you’re really trying to pick it apart." (Battlefield 4, PS4)

Glad to see that, even if they have exclusive DLC with another system, they didn't downgrade the PS4 version

with just 399$ .. damn!
decrypt  +   273d ago
You could build a PC for 500usd that will outperform the PS4 and give you BC to 30 years of games. So really the 399usd price on the PS4 doesnt look like a bargain at all wake up.
aceitman  +   272d ago
@decrypt ,enough of ur trolling , crawl under the rock u came from u post the same thing in every b4 article .this is 399$ well spent and ur mad u spent 1000$ to play on par of ps4, u can't get a pc to run this good for 500$ period . So troll off to ur pc realm, it's flattering that pc gamers would even compare ps4 to pc. :))))))

@decrypt, there is no $400 pc that is more powerful than the PS4.

@Decrypt
You thinking on playing Pong or something on your super PC? Let me know when you can play TLOU.
BTW BC will come when Gaikai comes

I have a PC that is significantly more powerful and a laptop which is also more powerful than either the X1/PS4 and I am still interested in the PS4/XB1 versions of games.

In this case because I have two select groups on PC and the other soon to be on PS4 that I want to play with.

The PS4 is a bargain for the people that it suits. I definitely want one for $400. Not everyone wants to game on a PC. Just because you are doesn't mean others want too and at this point EVERYONE knows the PC is a more capable platform from a performance and graphics standpoint. PC elitists fall back on that argument so often that I wouldn't be surprised if we were discussing which kind of Pesto is nicest and the 'PC IS BEAST' comments popped up.

That doesn't mean people cannot compare the differences and price points of the consoles. The consoles are a bargain. $400 for something that will be able to play games further down the line at a decent (not great level) is a bargain.

If I built a PC now for that it would be toilet in 2 years. I don't want to buy a PC and play games at a decent level. I want to play them at eye melting levels. A $400 PC won't do that. I spent more than that on my graphics card (GTX 770 4GB). I wanted to make sure I purchased a futureproof machine otherwise what is the point.

As much as many PC elitists would deny it, whilst they may struggle in the future these consoles will still be playing games at an acceptable level in 5 years. Too many that makes them a bargain.

@decrypt: Even if you could build a PC for $500 that out performs the PS4 (I don't think you can but feel free to reply with an exaple build) It still wouldn't play Sony's first party games.

Also don't act like you can play every PC game ever released on a new PC. Yes Windows has BC but it isn't nearly flawless. I have tons of games that aren't compatible with the newer versions of Windows. Even with Virtual Machines a lot of games don't work as they should (not to mention that you need to own the OS you're using in VM anyway so we're not talking about BC anymore).

I agree you can't beat the value of the PS4. I plan on getting both.

I have one question though. I have a Samsung 3D smart tv 55'. As far as I know I don't have a setting for 900p (I don't think no one does) how is a 900P resolution going to translate on my screen? When I play on PS3 the UI is in 1080p. When i start a game it switches to 720p.

Does 900p upscale to 1080p or downscale to 720p? If someone knows I'd appreciate the response.
I_am_Batman  +   272d ago
@GiggMan: You don't need a setting for 900p. Everything that is displayed at your TV in fullscreen is upscaled to 1080p. Even if it is a DVD or a PSOne game (1440x1080 instead of 1920x1080 in case of 4:3 source). If you watch SD TV your TV scales it to fit it's own pixelcount (which is 1920x1080). When you'll play BF4 and your PS4 is set to 1080p the PS4 will upscale it to 1080p.

Yeah because the PS4 version blows the XB1 away.... or wait, no it doesn't. Yes, it does. No, it doesn't. Yes, it does.

AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON WITH THIS CRAP.

You get me?
BBBirdistheWord  +   272d ago
I get you...

I remember when gaming used to be about fun.
Now it's about pixel counting and e-peens.

These forums are full of fanboys who are simply more interested in one-upmanship, not matter how minor the point.

What a waste of life.
MRMagoo123  +   272d ago
Im not saying that gaming isnt meant to be about fun........but it seems there are a lot of ppl now saying "i remember when gaming was about fun not rez and console power" and they mostly seem to be the same ppl talking about how there wont be a difference in the console power and now they have been proven wrong (e.g 900p holding fps better compared to 720 and still dropping frames) the attitudes have changed to just enjoy gaming.

If you want everyone to just get along (directed at xbone fanboys and PS4 fanboys) lets all just admit the ps4 has the better performance and then get on with the gaming hmmm ? I can bet you that wont happen tho because the xbone fanboys wont just accept the friggin facts that are presented by 99% of the comparison vids and websites.
BBBirdistheWord  +   272d ago
@mrmagoo

See, you have missed the point.

The ps4 and XBO are so similar it's not funny. Arguing over which is better is nitpicking and one-upmanship with no real benefit except to e-peens.

If you were really interested in better performance, you would be gaming on a top spec PC at 1440p, which kicks the ps4 and xboxone to the kerb. There ain't no pixel counting required. A top spec PC shames a PS4 and XBO into the shadows.

So from there, you want to claim victory because the PS4 arguably looks a teensy bit better in the shadow of the PC than the XBO in the shadow of the PC.
It just seems so silly.

It's like arguing which is better, a Porsche or a Ferrari, when in context both are the same compared to an F1 car.

But as soon as I bring that up you'll label me a PC fanboy who is anti ps4.

It seems comparisons are only ok, if you win. Is that about right?

See?

@BBB

I think the victory is claimed when you say you can't see the difference when at the same time the ps4 is doing twice as much res. that's a victory in anyone's eyes , put it this way if I was in a race with one other person and I won the race by 2 seconds or 1 second but at the same time had 4 ppl sitting on my back while I did it and the other person was by them selves how would you see that ? You xboners are getting laughed at around the Internet at the fact you deny it , no one including all the review sites think the xbone version is better and none I repeat none will ever say the xbone has the same power after this game because it can't be more obvious , it's as obvious that the ps4 has more power now as me drawing a square and telling ppl it's a square. I can't put it any simpler for you xbone has lost the war and ps4 has won the sooner you rtards admit it and stop lying the faster we can all get back to the games and the fun, just admit the fu£king truth for Christ sake.
BBBirdistheWord  +   271d ago
ok

So far, from the two pre-release mulitplat comparisons I have seen, the ps4 outperforms the XBO. There ain't no arguing that Ps4 COD 1080p is better than 720p upscaled. It also appears that despite the washed out look on ps4, the resolution of Ps4 BF4 is better than the XBO version. Any non pixel counters will have trouble telling the difference and may even prefer the crisp image and better textures on XBO, but that is beside the technical point that the ps4 pushes out more pixels.

So, yes. Happy now?

Now can you do me the humble favour of admitting that the PC completely craps on the PS4? Just admit it already. I have a PC at home over a year old that craps on both consoles put together.

You PS4 fanboys are getting laughed at declaring your hollow victory of being the king of consoles when in fact we all know that both PS4 and XBO are out of date compared to even today's midrange PCs, before the consoles are even released.
No one in the real world cares about the ps4 being marginally better. Only fanboy geek e-peens care.

I hope you see how silly you are now.
Don't blame the messenger.

Impressive. And not the first person to say the same thing.
xPhearR3dx  +   273d ago
Um no. The PS4 version looks fantastic, which is the version I'll be getting. However, I just played BF4 on PC with max settings and PS4 is most certainly not on par with it. AA is the most noticeable difference, but you can tell where textures were downgraded. However, for a launch title, I'm impressed with the PS4 version.
JsonHenry  +   272d ago
I am playing it maxed on PC as well and I agree that the PS4 version is noticeably downgraded but not to the point it is horrible. As you said lack of AA and some textures are lowered is very obvious. Overall though from the videos I have watched it seems that the PS4 version still looks really good compared to what I was expecting.
Hufandpuf  +   272d ago
I bought BF4 on xbox 360, and even though it looks like garbage compared to PC and next-gen, it is so fun to play. Can't wait to play it on next-gen!

The single player x1 version looks odd. It's like you could tell there is high res geometry and textures when watching but it's all ruined by the IQ. It's a mess. I'm surprised how much clearer the ps4 mp footage is. 720p is not that much of a downgrade to 900p. (yeah I know, 56% pixels. but still)

XB1 version of BF4 has many images that look better than the PS4/PC version

XB1 Modded DirectX Low Level Api is KILLER!

I need to find the Image link again that brought this to my attention.

Kinda getting really sick of the Propaganda saying the PS4 version is Better because it really IS NOT!

Not downplaying the PS4 because it looks really good but at the same time the PS4 version NEVER beats the PC but the XB1 version at times DOES beat the PC.

Looking forward to Mantle in December to bring that LOW LEVEL api performance to my PC.

DICE did a great job with BF4 on ALL 3 platforms.
nosferatuzodd  +   272d ago
wow Xbox fans are really delusional i mean i like ps4 but Xbox has more launch titles than ps4 right now i wouldn't be so stupid to deny that, but Xbox fans if Microsoft told them the sky is red they will fight to the death to proved its red even though its blue
Flutterby  +   272d ago
I would just ignore this tard , he was one if the ones thinking there was a dgpu lol, the ps4 MP looks better than the xbone SP, 99% of websites agree that's 99 out of 100 that thinks the ps4 is better for the dumb ppl, there is no disputing the fact that the ps4 is more powerful running at 50% more res with higher frames than the xbone and still looking better , even if they looked the same the ps4 is still doing 500,000 more pixels at the same time lol. It really is just getting stupid if the xboners just stfu and stop lying then the arguments will stop.

Makes you wonder what they will say when COD is higher Rez on ps4 as well, because I know for a fact it is.
Alvidta  +   271d ago
Duh comparing MP to SP.. I understand SP to SP but that's about it, people need to get head way out in the daylight and fyi there's been tweets that there's visuals like AO missing from Xbox one BF4 review version. so what? you wait until the real release
Obscure_Observer  +   271d ago
I´m glad that they did justice to PS4´s version even with the MS contract for the Xbox One.

It´ll a least, shut the damn fanboys who was dying to use the "Downgrade version because Xbox One´s inferior specs".

The PS4 version is better, but the X1´s version isn´t far behind. I´m cool with that.
