Battlefield 4: Which is better - Xbox One or PS4?

Videogamer: One of my main criticisms of Battlefield 4’s campaign was that it did little to make the player feel as if they were a part of a much bigger war. But in reality, they are: simply by coming along for the ride, every Battlefield 4 player is a combatant in a far more significant battle. And with the console war heating up as we edge closer to the next-gen launch, DICE’s shooter may end up being a key factor in the war between Microsoft and Sony, with the PlayStation 4 version displaying a clear advantage over the Xbox One. (Battlefield 4, PS4, Xbox One)

glad these guys address the different color/brightness setting on the video captures

XB1 has the worse resolution at 720p, but the inferiority doesn't stop here, the jaggies make small objects look horrible also the lighting is #@$%d up.

PS4 has a smoother images because of the higher resolution, also better AA and lighting engine, and according to multiple previews today this version is close to high end PC settings.

Xbox loses all detail in the shadows. It's way too dark due to the increase in contrast.
PS4 matches the PC version more closely in this regard. It also has better AA, ambient occlusion and runs at a higher resolution.

Well at $100 more xbox fans must be buy the console for the TV, because Games so far with multiplatform releases show that the PS4 wins... Battlefield 4 on PS4 runs more closely to the PC than the XBOX ONE!!! I'm Hearing nothing but criqettes right now from JOY, GreenPowerz/MorePowerOfGreen and all the other Usuals that have been living in lalaland!

Amiroo  +   676d ago

not even close to high-end pcs. it's high quality on pc, yes but not very high and not ultra.

XO = 720p , aliasings everywhere
PS4 = 900p , blury but better than XO

both are pc's high quality

PC = 1080p (atleast), Ultra quality = twice the resolution of XO and 1.5 PS4 + better textures,lightning + HBAO and other stuff
shivvy24  +   676d ago
the ps4 version is clearly superior but honestly its not a "massive" difference, all these articles bashing the x1 kinda seems pointless after watching the video !

PC = 1080p (atleast)

really?! so no 720p setting for the PC?

no hyperbole at all

and how much money dose it cost to get that level of performance? do tell

pyramidshead  +   675d ago
They probably had to a little bit from 1080p to 900p which is a big shame. Dice should have utilised all that ps4 power and not worry about parity at all.

Looks like this gen PS4 is going to be multiplatform king, which for me is pretty damn ideal considering some shocking ps3 ports this gen. PS4 holds up the frame rate the best and at a higher res.

If 900p still isn't acceptable....there's always Guerrilla ;P.

People acting like its PS4 compared to XBOX 360. Yea, I could see some minor differences but the game was still beautiful on both systems. That alone wouldn't deter me or anyone from buying an X1. Some of these comments are just ridiculous. If you didn't see the compare and just saw the X1 version, everyone would be saying how amazing it looks. I'll admit I noticed the differences, but when the screen was cut in half and you saw both systems side by side, it was tough to see the difference until they slowed it down and took snap shots comparing the two images. Lets stop acting like it was this huge, insane, ridiculous difference.

UltimateMaster looks like something seriously wrong with the lighting on the Xbone version, it takes away the camouflage out of that soldier's uniform! Also takes away some of the clouds in the background.
Boody-Bandit  +   675d ago

and how much money dose it cost to get that level of performance?"

I can't speak for decrypt but I can comment on price of my rig I built nearly 2 years ago. It ran me around $3k. I didn't even look into how it can run Battlefield 4 since I prefer console gaming (plug and play) to PC gaming. I just built a gaming rig on a whim cause I wanted to play iRacing on my FFB rig.

I would be surprised if my rig (dual GTX 590's) can run BF4 at 1080p on max settings. I should download the demo and test it just to see. But again I rarely even use my gaming rig and have no interest in playing BF4 on it. I only power it up when Steam is having ridiculous sales on games I've already played on the consoles. I like to compare them just out of curiosity.

I will be playing BF4 on the PS4.

Lifendz  +   675d ago
I'm getting the PS4 version, but I honestly didn't see that much of a difference. I guess it's due to the compression and them uploading in 720p. This will be one of those things you have to go to a Best Buy or Gamestop to see the games side by side to really appreciate. Regardless, both versions look fine.

Superior would suggest the difference is large, like a Corvette is superior compared to a Mustang. But to suggest the PS4 is superior based on some minor details, I don't think you know what the word means. PS4 compared to Xbox 360, superior. PS4 compared to X1, marginally better graphics, but not mind blowing. I doubt anyone who saw this is going to cancel their X1 preorder because the shadow or some lighting looks marginally better.
Thevariance  +   675d ago

Definition of superior: "higher in rank, status, or quality". The word superior does not entail that there is a significant quantitative difference, but only that there is a difference.

I would say that xHeavyx used the word appropriately and I agree that based on the evidence provided by Battlefield, the PS4 is superior.
Boody-Bandit  +   675d ago

Of course that's what you're going to hear. It always doesn't matter what you don't have until you do. It was the same way last gen with too many things to list. Don't you remember the whole "PS3 has no games"? Yet the last few years exclusives no longer matter. Now it's look at the exclusives. *head spins*

The whole thing is lunacy. I preferred MS hardware over everything else the past decade plus. Mostly because that is where my friends were gaming. Next gem I'm jumping ship and headed towards the land of Sony. I won't be looking back. Why anyone would pay more money for less simply boggles my mind.

To my friends that don't make the jump. Ciao, it's been real, but I'm moving on with or without you.

I understand what Jack Tretton said at E3 now.

The PS4 version seems to be a downgraded version of the PC build yet the X1 is entirely different in more ways than one.

The Digital Foundry videos comparing the X1 and PS4 versions to the PC are worth a watch. It will open a lot of peoples eyes because some on here would type that the X1 version looks better than the PC version based on their logic.
Jubez187  +   676d ago
You realize that the xbox hasn't really had any exclusives in the past 2 years besides a new Halo and a Gears of War cash grab? I'm not even trying to flame but I honestly think you're lying to or confusing yourself when you speak about console exclusives. IGN pretty much stopped doing System of the Year because it would be no-contest nowadays. It's cool if you like xbox but I just don't know where you come off talking about exclusives. I guess the XB1 has exclusives like Ryse but early-bird exclusives never amount to much (Lair, Heavenly Sword, Genji, The Outfit) they're more just psychological justifiers to tell yourself the console was worth a few hundo.
slimeybrainboy  +   676d ago
@pintheshadows Its not a downgraded PC build. PC version is scalable, this means that alot of people will play at lower quality than than the PS4 build and alot will play at a similar level and alot will play at a higher l;evel. Not every person who plays on PC has a rig better than PS4.

Sorry, but It really bugs me when people say compare PS4 to PC graphics its annoying. I dont mind videos that show specific builds like PS4 vs 7850 and i5 but to compare against PC which can be anything is dumb. It's like comparing a dolphin to a pokemon.
morganfell  +   676d ago
"But at the end of the day, it's about the exclusives."

Look how that worked out this generation. And the last generation. Simply put Sony has the studios and the commitment to provide more exclusives. Period. You just made the PS4 case. Even toward the end of this generation they are still delivering. Next generation it will be worse with more developers jumping on the PS4 bandwagon.

This one better proves my point, the Xbox One version used post processing to boost the contrast and sharpness to compensate for it being 720p. They did the same techniques with the PS4 to have a better comparison. After those tweaks, it's easier to see that the PS4 is the better version, but that does not take away from the fact that the Xbox One version looks great as well.

Dude, high contrast does not equal "crisp".

PS4 preserves more detail in shaded areas, much like the PC version. Whereas on XBO, that detail is gone, it's just black.
PS4 has better AA, ambient occlusion and higher res.

PS4 version shows the character's hand and face cast a shadow on the gun and shoulder respectively. Xbox lacks a few things.

Lol, dude, you are reaching but there's nothing to grab hold of. You can see on a youtube video that the PS4 version has better lighting & less jaggies. "From a youtube video". At home the difference will be seen in even more detail. The Xbone contrast is overblown & unrealistic. You loose the detail in the shadows.

No dude. Digital foundry use some picture correction ( sharpening filter ).
Dark10x (who another poster said works for DF) has surmised that DF used their own capture device but didn't have time to really configure it properly for the new systems, while the other outlets all used the same Elgato capture device that DICE provided. That's why DF's [comparison] is the only one that looks massively different.

Guys, come on. You're splitting hairs. The PS4 looks slightly smoother with a substantially softer color pallet. The Xbox One's up-conversion looks to be working very well, and I rather like what they've done with their lighting system.

Bottom line, they both look fantastic with some marginal visual differences.
ThunderSpark  +   676d ago
Smh. I used to be in denial too. No need to try and justify, 900p > 720p
Naga  +   676d ago
900p > 720p. True facts right there.

However, we're looking at 1080p = 1080p.

Both consoles are up-converting, and they both look equally fantastic with only marginal visual differences.

Here's a source to reinforce my point about the importance of up-conversion:

reko  +   676d ago
no he didnt lol

"Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 4 looks stunning, with DICE clearly utilising the console’s additional firepower to yield a superior image quality on Sony’s machine. Images are pin-sharp, appearing to run at a native 1080p and fluid 60 frames per second. But while the Xbox One version effortlessly maintains the same frame-rate, the image quality is perceptibly worse, sporting a softer, jaggier look that carries all the hallmarks of a game upscaling from a sub full-HD resolution. My suspicion is that the Xbox One version is rendering natively at 720p before upscaling to 1920x1080, although DICE opted not to confirm numbers when confronted about the resolutions of the two next-gen versions directly."

@reko - so the PS4 version is running native 1080p/60fps? If that was the case then it would look 100x better than the XB1 version - which it doesn't. It looks better sure, but not 720p - 1080p difference.
MAULxx  +   676d ago
No one is saying you can't get it on the Xbone & enjoy it. It's just a step down from the PS4 version, which was to be expected. There's nothing wrong with getting it on the Bone if that's the console you have decided on.

PS4 version is clearly the superior one between the two. You can see the differences in jaggies. I'm not digging that extra J.J. Abrams style lighting flare boost.
xKugo  +   676d ago
This what happen when you don't compress the video capture so heavily as YouTube does. PS4 has a sharper image, better frame-rate keep, higher resolution(which results in less jaggies), AO and AF use. Overall it's just a better game on PS4.

To those of you thinking that Xbox One looks better because" it's darker and PS4 looks washed out" then you obviously don't know what high gamma levels and crushed blacks mean. Just to prove my point clearly, go compare Xbox One version to PC. Clearly the difference remains the same, with Xbox One having just some ugly, crushed blacks levels compared to the softer, more accurate colors and contrast. Yes, it looks "darker" but that doesn't make it better. Not even close; the Xbox 360 did the same thing with it's gamma levels when scaling. Some of you are in denial so hard it's almost sad but you really need to step-up and face the music people. You have the weaker console, accept it and move. You still have Halo, still got Ryse and if you like Gears you might have that soon, too. Don't forget Forza as well. Just enjoy your console for what it is and quit worrying about how it compares to PS4. The best you'll be getting is parity if you're lucky.

these video players aren't even 60 frames and have low bit-rate, so of-course they'll look similar. Even comparing it to PS3 it would look almost the same too. But the resolution differences are pretty big and not to mention the AA which the XB1's version has none.

If the XB1 can't run a cross-gen title at the same quality as the PS4's, things are not gonna get better from here. That's for sure.

Anybody with some sense knows the XB1 version looks better overall. Reddit had dozens of pics showing blurry and soft textures, toned down lighting and missing objects/lighting/textures on the PS4 version.

To be fair we are not seeing the game in motion, but I do know the aa and framerate is better on ps4. They say the resolution is 900p on ps4 and 720p on X1.(EA never confirmed the resolution only DF) By those pics it doesn't seem that way, but for now on how it runs from what I hear I will agree that the PS4 is the better version..

Moreover the textures in the X1 version looks sharp, the lighting is better to. May have to do with DX 11.X. That's the only way they could do it.

UncleGermrod  +   676d ago
this is the stuff that makes me laugh. zooming in on hair nap to see the diffs. there is no denying ps4 has the edge this gen, shit they pretty much had it last gen but just for 1st party. anyway, my point is the same one ive been making for a while now...that at least in the case of multiplat, the diff is one you will need to sort of "nit pick" to really find. Most people wont have them side by side and its not gonna be that serious. Now 1st parties will deff have a much clearer advantage, but that wont matter since those games have only one home. also the xbone will deff have some sexy ass 1st parties as well. think gears vs uncharted....both were sick graphically speaking but uncharted was deff a little more stunning overall. bottom line, my way of thinking leaves me no choice but to own the both, no way im missing out on quality titles from either side.

I think any games my friends play i will play on xbone, but any games my friends arent playing or that are single player will deff be played on ps4. simply put, ps4 is more powerful and it already shows...

You get what you pay for! Oh wait....
H0RSE  +   675d ago
You do get what you pay for. Resolution in games is hardly the reason I and many others, decide on buying a console. Functionality, services, exclusives, controller, OS design, social functions, etc. these are just some of the reasons people choose one console over the other.

Here's a scenario for you:

Say PS4 was released with specs lower than the WiiU, but there was confirmation that all the great exclusives such as TLOU, Uncharted, Infamous, KZ, etc. would still be developed for the system. or let's say the online services were going to remain free. Would you pass it up because it's not pumping out pretty enough games for you?

The point is that there is more to a console than the graphic fidelity of it's games. I am getting an X1, and I am getting what I pay for. I'm paying for an online service I prefer over the competition. I'm paying for the ability to play and socialize with my friends, since they are all getting X1's as well. I'm paying for a console that comes with an accessory that despite being laughed at and labeled as "gimmicky" or "useless" by many in the community, I am looking forward to using. I'm paying for a controller that I find vastly superior compared to the alternative, and I'm paying for a console who's aesthetic design overall, is much more pleasing to my eyes.

You can have your 900p vs 720p and even 1080p vs 720p and laugh all you want, because at the end of the day, I have a gaming rig that put's both consoles to shame. If it's graphics you want, then you really should be on PC, otherwise you're just beating your chest and gloating about coming in second place, and you know what they say about the person who comes in second place...

I don't buy a console strictly for games. I buy them for the social aspect of gaming, whether it's playing solo and joining a friend later, forming a party and playing together, or simply talking to each other, this is why I play console, and in this regard, X1 simply offers a better experience for me over PS4.

NikonSteve  +   673d ago
Now say this happens: 2 companies come out with similar systems but one is more powerful and the other is easier to develop for. At one time Sony was stupid enough to think Cell would act as a cpu and a gpu at the same time. Developers hated the idea and therefore they added a Nvidia gpu to make it easier to make games for. The idea was to get 3rd party devs to make games for the PS3 and not have enough time or want to spend the effort to make games for the 360. This obviously back fired. All the 3rd party devs wanted to work with the 360 because it was much easier to work with. In the end, PS3 was more powerful, more expensive, and more of a pain in the ass to make games with. Microsoft got a hold of the market (partially if you count the many, many systems Nintendo sold). However, Sony seems to have their ducks in a row this time, and they've listened to what developers want, as well as listened to gamers. My point being is I am a gamer. I don't want to have to deal with inconsistencies on PC with gamers having different hardware than me and that having an outcome on the game online. I don't want to have to deal with cheaters who mod the games. The fact that Microsoft has all ready admitted they did not aim to get the highest performing graphics for their system shows me they are more concerned about other things than games. The social aspect is there for PS4 as well so theres no difference. If games can look like a medium spec'd PC, off great online services like Gaikai, and attract all the 3rd party developers to make great games, PS4 is going to be the superior system this time around! Kinect is pretty useless BTW. Who the hell plays games on that thing unless your dancing like an idiot in front of the TV?!
I think what he meant by his comment is that generally speaking you would assume you get what you pay for if something costs more expensive than another product that does the same thing, you get the better product...

...but in this case the ps4 is cheaper and looks sharper in terms of graphics yet the xbox one is much more expensive yet looks worse.
H0RSE  +   675d ago
I have seen multiple comparison vids and screen captures, and I have yet to see a definitive winner. At some parts PS4 looks better, at others X1 does, the whole time the differences being subtle. Largely, which version looks "better" comes down to personal preference.

There is one constant I have seen though, and others have agreed in articles as well, that the XO version is the one with the crisper visuals. You say the PS4 version looks sharper, yet it has been stated quite a lot the the PS4 version looks "blurrier" or "softer." I have even seen some say it looks as though the X1 version is sporting some type of rendering technique to ramp up the sharpness, which leads to crisper visuals but also makes aliasing more noticeable.

There's also the recent news that the XO version of BF4 in the comparison vids, was lacking AO (ambient occlusion) and it will be added in a day one patch.

So even in terms of strictly visuals, based on comparisons, people still are getting what they pay for, especially considering that a bulk (if not all) of the increased price does not have to do with beefier hardware over the competition, but with the inclusion of the Kinect, a device that has absolutely no effect on graphics fidelity.

Motion blur in multi

One :

no AA
no motion blur in multi
no ambient occlusion, patch coming with 1,8 gbs
lower framerate.

So the truth is the 50% raw power is right before you eyes and you seem to ignore it. Blinds remain blinds
