Looks impressive on both consoles but one clearly looks better than the other.

Seriously I know theres suppose to be a difference but at least here dont see it.

Edit disagrees? This was not a fanboy comment I#m sure ps4 version is techically better with the higher res what I'm saying is I just really dont see a difference. I welcome those with better eyes to point out the difference either way I already admitted ps4 version was better. Actually Im very impressed as the game looks sweet on both with BF4 running at 60fps the gameplay looks smooth. Now Im thinking I might just pick it up when I get my X1, I wish the sp wasn't so short but hey this is really about mp.

They both look fine. The PS4 version looks a tad smoother and has less overdone lighting, but both versions are mind-blowingly close to the PC version..something that I didn't expect at launch.

Come on guys look at this on Xbox One:

We should compare this to PS3 instead.
P0werVR  +   837d ago | Well said

I don't see how you can tell which is smoother? They both look solid frame rates and in game brightness seems more done for PS4 than Xbox One that is about it.



More like a matter of what the mind wants to see. What I see are no significant difference. Just turn down brightness level on Xbox One and they look EXACTLY the same.

@allformats - Unless your planning on playing both versions side by side on identical televisions, it really shouldn't matter. They both look good.

@PowerVR - I suppose its a matter of opinion. Not everyone sees things the same way. For me, I like the slightly more subtle lighting of the PS4 version.

EDIT: Your right. The differences aren't significant (you know how obsessive people here get), but they are noticeable in my opinion.

Remember way back in 2007 how COD4 looked a little more washed out and jagged on the PS3, well..this is sort of the same situation but in reverse. The PS4 version's subtle lighting gives it a cinematic/realistic effect that I don't see in the XB1 version.

But of course, someone with different tastes may prefer the overdone lighting on the XB1 version.

Hmmm so it wasnt just me. If this is the difference between X1 and ps4 neither fans need worry. Well I'll just speak for myself which is I think I can live with X1 versions of multiplats until I get a ps4. Fellas no matter which one you're picking dont let the negativity get to you I've been gaming for a long time and this is the best variety and quality launch games I can remember seeing ever. The constant internet rumors is the only bad part I hate about this gen.

When everything is close to the screen the graphics start to to be similar. But as you start looking further in the distance you can see the differences.. X1 definitely starts getting more jagged edges and PS4 doesn't
nukeitall  +   837d ago
Frankly I'm disappointed in both of them. I was expecting to see less pixelation and defects, but instead what I got served isn't impressive.

I hope the game is a lot better than the previous rendition. BF3 had terrible campaign.

Ps4 AA looks slightly superior,
NewMonday  +   837d ago

it's funny how only XB1 fans can't see the difference, must be dem tainted glasses.

exactly! and BF MP is primly played on open maps and long distance shooting, this will actually effect game play, playing on the XB1 we can hardly make out anything with the low resolution and jaggies

The same? Someone needs to visit the optometrist. The PS4 is pushing twice the pixels with a far far superior framerate. The X1 damage control is amusing. I hope people have plenty of powerade because it is going to be a long generation and the gap between the two will widen rather than narrow. Anyone that believes cloud powah is going to make up the difference is foregetting two things. The cloud doesn't work in that manner and where it does compliment MS aren't the only ones with the tech.

Someone should also ask Penello to explain the 1080p demo at the MS E3 conference.

ABizzel1  +   837d ago
Both versions look good, that being said the XBO seems to have a higher saturation of color which is why people claim it looks better (high saturation makes colors POP). That being said the XBO version suffers from significant AA issues that the PS4 version doesn't have (although the PS4 version has this sketchy shadow on the ground during in-game scutscenes). Also frame analysis have been done by Eurogamer (don't quote me on the source) and the PS4 version seems to run an average of 50fps for singleplayer, while the XBO version is around 40 fps.

Overall, better native resolution, better AA, better framerate, means the PS4 is the WINNER (as far as consoles go). But the XBO version is still is a great runner-up as this game was meant to be played on next-gen.

Best comparison video

That being said, this is only a multiplatform title, what happens when exclusives start dropping. Like I said in my blog you're basically comparing an HD 7970m w. a 10% downgrade to the GPU (PS4) with an HD 7790 with a 20% downgrade to the GPU (XBO).

The 7970m (PS4) is more powerful to begin with, and then you downgrade the 7790 (XBO) by another 10% more than the 7970m (PS4), so of course the PS4 is going to produce better graphics along with it's better setup of RAM.

Read my blog, great one by the way detailing all the pros and cons of XBO

Is your monitor 1080p? If it's 720p you shouldn't be able to tell the difference.
dantesparda  +   837d ago
To any fanboy asking where the extra 50% power is on the PS4. Well, its right there in a 64% resolution increase. 1600x900(= 1,440,000) is 64% higher resolution than 720p (1280x720=921,600). Plus the X1 version definitely has more aliasing, so that's another technological plus for the PS4.

That being said, i dont the blurrier look of the PS4, and prefer the sharper look of the X1 version

There is really very little difference there. If we were visiting each others house and had different systems I doubt you would be able to tell the differences. I am looking at both and can't see much of a difference honestly.

Any way. They are more reasons to get the X1 than graphics, which obviously look great.
amiga-man  +   837d ago
I have to say looking at that video trying to notice the difference while it's all moving is not as obvious as some of the stills going around, the PS4 has the better graphics but as a game neither look bad.
SilentNegotiator  +   837d ago
This video is REALLY poorly compressed. Everything is really washed out. This video is ALMOST worthless for comparison, however...

1) PS4 clearly has either better AA or a higher resolution, as the belt buckle shows more aliasing on the Xbox One version.

2) 0:35 - More evidence of higher AA/res on PS4. Those lines on the bridge are half disappearing a lot more than on the PS4 version, as slightly tilting thin lines will do on lower resolutions.

3) More flicker on building than PS4, another sign of lower res/AA.

I could go on, but I would just be bringing up the same kind of stuff over and over.
darthv72  +   837d ago
to me, i see one that is washed out and brighter than the other.

I can assume that if the brightness/contrast were adjusted to make them appear the same, i wouldnt be able to tell the difference.

but that's me.
XboxFun  +   837d ago
Hilarious the difference is minimal and I find it even funnier that some fans are using terms like "pushing twice the pixels" or they can actually see the 900p difference. And it's only because they were told this earlier.

Now everyone is a pixel counter and the grains of dirt suddenly matter.

Did I call it, or did I call it:

True to form, I suspect we'll see more fans saying how they can see the difference in water running out a pipe or how the dust flutters faster when driving off road.

Ok, ok, after watching the whole thing I did see a difference...the Xbox One player played like crap...seriously, not only was he not in the mix but getting shot!

@4Sh0w Thank god the the internet is the way it is today. Do you think Microsoft would be able to deny any hardware problems with the Xbox One for 1 year and 8 months like they did with the 360 after launch? It would NEVER happen today.
UnholyLight  +   837d ago
If the Xbox One version makes use of the impulse/rumble triggers thats the version I would buy, they look almost identical, with the PS4 taking a slightly more subtle approach to lighting.

Not to mention the Xbox One version has voice commands, that's really gonna help online because I found the wheel of commands hard to utilize at times in the beta, where I'd accidentally ask for ammo instead of medic for example.
vulcanproject  +   837d ago
Xbox one: 1280 x 720
PS4: 1600 x 900

56 percent more resolution to PS4.

I remember when people used to make a fuss about just 10 percent comparing 360 to PS3!!! 56 percent is a huge difference.

Framerate: PS4 leads by 2-4 FPS more of the time in the campaign. The multiplayer shows an even larger visual difference IMO- you can see it even in these compressed videos which usually hide a lot.

DICE look like they had to cut back the multiplayer visuals far more on Xbox one than they did on PS4, just look how ugly the Xbox one version is from 2:45 especially inside, the flat and dull floors, walls and furniture.

What Microsoft have done like they did with 360 is to artificially 'sharpen' and digitally enhance the image on Xbox one's output, bumping colour saturation and contrast as much as they could.

This is because to the untrained eye, you think wow, this game stands out and looks better.

In fact it doesn't look better from a technical standpoint, it crushes blacks and hides detail (or lack thereof)

It is very much like how TV adverts suddenly seem louder than the programme you were watching (they are), or the way the past 20 years audio masters of studio albums have gotten louder and harsher across all the tracks to try and make the album stand out.

All this actually does is destroy the finer details and dynamic range of any music.

Microsoft do the exact same thing with 360 and Xbox one adjusting the output artificially. If you want the Xbox digital sharpness, colour and contrast look on PS3/4, you just need to adjust your TV to match. But you shouldn't, because its just the wrong way to calibrate a display.

I just spent over an hour playing Battlefield 4 on the Xbox One and to be honest, it just looked plain mediocre. The visuals were nothing close to what I would even begin claiming to be next gen. I welcome any performance advantages and with the superior resolution, the PS4 version is the obvious choice.

Not much difference as far as I can see in these videos. I think both could use some better anti-aliasing, but they look pretty similar. I'm getting it on PC in any case, but it seems like those on PS4 or XB1 will enjoy a nice game as well.
CrusRuss  +   836d ago
Dude are you blind? Change the format to 1080p and skip halfway through to the multi-player segment.

The XB1 is not using AA (anti aliasing, to reduce jaggies) whereas the PS4 is. Also the PS4 looks higher res. If you look at the MP gameplay you can see the XB1 environment is full of jaggies and looks like a PS3 game.

This is the 50% more power GPu at work. It is OBVIOUS to me that they had to reduce the quality to make the XB1 framerate workable. LOL!
N7KIRK  +   836d ago
Yeah, but, but, he knows which system is better. So automatically his eyes are enhanced to enable him to tell which one "clearly" looks better than the other.

After watching that this. this article seems almost irrelevant.

The funny thing is even if there is a difference. The average gamer won't even notice it.

Xbox seemingly being slower than PS4. 50% faster than X1 in all that ultimately went no where with these comparisons.

Because the average gamer can't tell the difference and casual lol forget about it.

I honestly don't see neither console one upping the other here or in the other vids I've seen.

But hey if fanboys are forcing themselves to see a difference to justify there console of choice then have fun. Because you guys are dead desperate at this point.

But look this is only 1 official game we gotta wait and see what the others look like.

LOGICWINS  +   837d ago
^^I don't think you understand what AngelicIceDiamond is saying. The comparisons are pointless because 99% of the people who buy BF4 will never see the PS4/XB1 versions running side by side in order to compare them. They will buy ONE version and be happy with that version without worrying about whether or not "the grass is greener" on the other side.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   837d ago
@Logic thanks

Listen like I said, you guys can force yourselves into thinking one's better than the other all day. When they're clearly identical looking.

Just recently:

This past summer:

Early last summer:

The Watch Dogs producer is the most interesting one out of the 3. Considering this was before the X1 upclocks and it was earlier in the summer.

"We asked Guay how the Xbox One version of Watch_Dogs would be different compared to the PC and PS4 versions of the game, to which he replied that, “The Xbox One is a powerful platform, as of now we do not foresee a major difference in on screen result between the PS4 and the Xbox One."

So 3 known devs say they're generally equal. VS unknown devs that clearly say its 50& faster but I don't see 50& faster here or anywhere. Hey maybe I will later who knows.

But anyway have fun in November and enjoy your console(s) of choice everyone

They obviously aren't equal in power if the ps4 is doing what the xbone is doing plus more at double the rez along with a better fps rate overall, thinking otherwise is just plain lying, you cant say they are the same power or on par if the ps4 is playing it at a better frame rate at 900p than the xbone at 720p.
PawnSacrifice  +   837d ago
Meh. I actually prefer the X1.
The PS4 has ALOT of missing textures, hiding jaggies with a blur effect = no no
MysticStrummer  +   837d ago
"The comparisons are pointless because 99% of the people who buy BF4 will never see the PS4/XB1 versions running side by side in order to compare them."

The same could have been said about all PS3/360 comparisons, but much was made of those differences.

The point, to me, is that once again the tables seem to have turned. Going by the limited evidence we have so far, multi plats will look a little better on PS4. It's not just fanboys seeing and saying this, if you watch the other BF4 comparison video that's hot right now. The guys in that video talk about how the differences are less noticeable in the video because of the capture method and YouTube limitations, and they even quote a long time XBox fan who is "sad" that PS4's version looks better.

Anyway, you can't really look at a multi plat comparison and judge the difference in power, same as with PS3/360. That rumored 50% power difference wouldn't be apparent with a multi plat, so it's not possible to look at this and say it doesn't exist. We won't really know about that for a year or two at least.

The bottom line is that both look fine and, rumored 4 hour campaign aside, gamers on both consoles will have a great time.

@Pawn - If blur effect is a no no, then surely upscaling must be... right?

I do believe the PS4 version looks slightly better, but not 50% better than xb1 version. At this point, your're just splitting hairs.

And the Sony fanboys can say what they want about multiplatform parity, but I think Battlefield 4 on xb1 stacks to PS4's Killzone:SF.
Killzone looks a little better from what I've seen, but it isn't thea"FLAWLESS" victory scenario they believe.

Next year will be crucial. Order 1886, Infamous will be on display for PS4. MS may have a Halo game by next years end, Quantum Break somewhere around the corner. If the exclusives show the "tale of the tape", we'll see.

The insane graphics lover that I am, 20 years of console and PC gaming and tweaking each and every .ini file/config file possible to get that extra special effect/more details/better resolution for the best framerate possible for each game that allowed it and then some(breathes in...) ...has an opinion if you guys are interested.

Being a game dev myself and digital artist/programmer with an eye for these little details, based on what is available online right now to compare both versions including this video...

*For this particular game* the PS4 version is slightly more advanced tech-wise. It is also slightly better looking, in the details. For most people tough, they'll look pretty much the same. Video/image compression don't help, but it's the key "advanced" graphics enhancements that tell all. There are other subtleties that mess things up a bit but here it goes:

- Better anti-aliasing on PS4. Pretty obvious.

- SSAO (shadows created at the junction of nearby objects) not as strong even sometimes not even present on some objects on XBOne when it appears to be present on PS4 all the time. (look at the tables in the lab)

- The XBOne image has more contrast, so it looks like it has more detail. You see more of the little light reflection bumps on the textures, for instance, the colors are also more saturated, but when you look at the overall texture res and quality, both versions seem pretty identical.

- The PS4 seems to have more sensitive motion blur so it makes everything a bit blurry during even subtle camera movements. More AA doesn't help in that regard either. In the video above, they paused during camera movement and it renders some comparison shots irrelevant.

Both versions will look globally identical to most people and for the most important aspects which are gameplay features, framerate, shadow/texture res. and high enough screen resolution with decent AA so you don't get distracted by too much jagginess.

Can't wait to get more info about loading times for both versions.

See you on the battlefield, soldiers.

I find all these multiplayer games comparisons funny and pointless, that only fanboys care about. If one version looks a bit better then the other, it's irrelevant... nobody cares beside fanboys! If you really want the best looking version then go for the PC version or wait for the Steam Box.
What's going to set both consoles apart are the QUALITY EXCLUSIVES. Yes, quality, not quantity.

True, both look great, but it's actually the XB1 version that looks SLIGHTLY better, just a little more detail and smoothness...the funny thing is I was expecting the PS4 version to look a little I assumed the vid on the left was the PS4 version, and I was comparing the other version to that. Nice to see that XB1 was able to pull that off. Not any major differences at all, but I do prefer the XB1 take on it...PS4 seems to be darker overall.

Look at all the Sony Fanboy rage on this haha ...down votes. Neither version looks A LOT better, but look how mad PS fanboys are that they look almost identical, they were banking on PS4 looking tons better but again it doesn't..."Na ah they can't both look the same (or XB1 version even slightly better)...I must downvote everyone that doesn't say PS4 is way better!!!

SSAO is coming on launch , Dice just confirmed that huge improvements are being done to the Xbox One version , they also confirmed that it was the last version ported and given to that , they need time to port it for more , for now they have like 22 days so from now to then , I expect them making the Xbox One version better

I'm buying bf4 on ps4 however I'll agree that the xb1 version does indeed look better

thanks for the gifs, while the PS4 version easily has less aliasing, the X1 verson has sharper lighting and textures
FrigidDARKNESS  +   837d ago
The x1 is better in this video. Ps4 version has popup and blurry textures.
DoesUs  +   837d ago
40% less pixels, lower average framerate, Shambolic multiplayer gfx, $100 more expensive! Ouch.

You sir are completely off your rocker.

Next up, Ass Creed 4. See you then.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   836d ago
@Doesus if that true i would be embarass to say ps4 looks better. It should be blowing the x1 version away but its not. oUCH!
DoesUs  +   836d ago
I see. Ouch?
4logpc  +   837d ago
Holy crap when that comparison switched to multi, both versions became really ugly, really fast.
neocores  +   837d ago
You cant compare a freeze screen with real time. Ps4 multiplayer looks better then the xbox one single player.
The single player for ps4 looks even better.
Tegrogg  +   837d ago
I posted this in every article section I could thanks, these other sites alter the video to mislead people , smh
supraking951  +   837d ago
yup PS4 wins
Izzy408  +   837d ago
wins second place.

no only 3% ply on ult-setting according steam data

so 100% of ps4 player will enjoy this lvl

Again.. the jaggies on Xbox One are a real put off.
VoodooRob  +   837d ago
Wtf are you talking about ? I'm buying the ps4 version however your comments are straight fanboy period. I'll go as far as to give a slight edge to the xb1 version based on visuals and early multiplayer DLC.

Stop being a biased gaming dork and be a fan of gaming you simple person
Sarobi  +   837d ago
Biased gaming dork?.. lmao. You seem really eager to jump into attack mode on me. I've seen enough videos already to see that the AA is not as good on the X1 version compared to PS4.

Stop being so butthurt over the internet.
R1V3N  +   837d ago
can you not see the jaggies? AA far superior on ps4

How is 720 better than 900p it defeats logic did everybody just forget that of course it looks close on a compress video when on tv it will show never is 720 better than 900p but somehow it is now
ape007  +   837d ago
people here are blind, xbox one version looks definitely better
0neShot  +   837d ago
So more detail is now called jaggies?
Sarobi  +   837d ago
No.. jaggies are jaggies.
ThanatosDMC  +   836d ago
Jaggies makes you lose detail from lines at a distance. You need to check your definition of jaggies compared to everyone else. Use youtube for in depth videos.
P0werVR  +   837d ago
Wow, both have pretty solid frame-rates. But there is a significant difference between MP and SP. 4hrs SP, thought it would have been more unfortunately.

I am a Xbox fan and I will be the first to say the Ps4 version does look slightly better SLIGHTLY it's not game changeing how everyone is making it seem... the xbox one and PS4 both look fantastic all fanboyism asside . there is no huge difference to be honest people are making it seem like the Xbox one looks like the 360 version
spaceg0st  +   837d ago

i'm a 360 fan moving to a ps4 and while there IS a small difference... it's not really enough to matter. XBone 720 still looks next gen. The comparison shots people are most commonly using are of distance objects. Not as drastic as everyone was freaking out about leading up to this.

Your other comments prove you a lier!
Any "Xbox Fan" moving to PS is just a PS fanboy.
But I agree, lets not forget this is a launch game. I doubt if Dice even had the consoles until the 75% completion mark

lol. doesn't look like you've used your little 3 bubbles wisely. clearly, you have nothing of value to say.

and btw, it's spelled liar. if you're going to insult someone, at least do it properly. moron.

and while it IS true, i preferred my 360 over my ps3 for gaming because of; controller preference, my friends list, online integration (party systems, chat, structure etc)... i am actually making the switch to ps4 with a lot of my friends because i simply have common sense. The value of sony's $400 superior system, superior subscription model giving out tons of free games, and new controller make it an easy choice.

i originally WANTED to go with an xbox, but Sony won me over with all the stuff they do to appeal to their customers. ps+ has SO many games given out that i would want to play, not necessarily buy, all for $10 less than xbl. A clear example is comparing the games sony has offered through ps+ and look at the amazing $5 bin games M$ has offered in the recent months... rainbow six vegas2? fable3? assassins creed 2? c'mon...

And how could i justify spending an extra $100 for a console that comes in last place in the graphics department.

There is a difference in texture and lightning . For me ps4 version look better even though i wish if they made it a little darker to get a dark atmosphere with good texture. It's noticeable and no one should deny that. However, it's not that big. For me i wouldn't mind if i played the X1 version. But there is no excuse for the people who made this a big deal in last generation..
polow got sol  +   837d ago
X1 looks better with this comparison. But both are pretty equal
obliterator  +   837d ago

BobBelcher  +   837d ago
both look great. Nothing really should sway a person one way or the other.
People are practically posting comments under biased assumptions w/o even watching the video.

Is this what the fuss is about? They both look the same....microscopic differences give people bragging rights? Too funny. Lol. These videos make me more sure I want a X1on day one.

Not microscopic, just open your eyes a little bit. Just a teeny weeny.

Excelent video, what a great game i can't wait to play it on my PS4, both versions looks good, PS4 of course its better but nothing to worry about Xbox fellas im sure both consoles will have a great times with this title.
MRMagoo123  +   837d ago
LOL so there is no diff huh guys wow i am just dumbstruck by the comments, even if they where looking the same (which they arent because even the ps4 MP looks better) the ps4 is doing it all at double the pixels , which means if you are using a tv bigger than the 20" pc screen you are using it will be even better still than it looks right now. What are you guys(xboners) gonna say next, the sites are all biased ?
brave27heart  +   837d ago
Clearly my eye sight isnt as razor sharp as everyone elses because to me they look pretty identical. Take away the name tags and I couldnt have told you which was which.
Izzy408  +   837d ago
I think everyone feels the same way after watching the comparison, but only a fraction of the people will be honest and say that there really wasn't a noticeable difference. Fanboys.. -_-

They are pretty close, slight lighting difference, main one for me tho is the difference in AA
elmaton98  +   837d ago
Im waiting for my ps4 bundle with bf4 and ill have to say that I though the xb1 version was better but then I was looking at it through my phone so I cant really tell the difference.
ThanatosDMC  +   836d ago
Either you watched those videos on 360p, you watched it on a CRT tv, or something wrong with your eyes. Watch it on HD on an HD monitor/screen. If you dont have the luxury for one, then yes they're all the same including the 360 and PS3 version.
EverydayGuy  +   837d ago
Still wondering why DF comparison has that high contrast, while in IGN its almost non-existence.
TOGC  +   837d ago
Best to download stuff like this off Gamersyde. Flash/YouTube etc tends to compress and not show the proper fps.

Xb1 version looks slightly better with better lighting
SCW1982  +   837d ago
Crushed blacks does not equal better lighting.
bjmartynhak  +   837d ago
Best Buy TV settings, hehe
SpideySpeakz  +   837d ago
I seriously don't know about this. Both look the same, just different contrast (as always)..
This, however, isn't the best example of the power of both systems. I say compare the exclusives of each system, and that will tell the true story.
tubers  +   836d ago
Xbox 1 automatically has black crush and no proper work around.

With the PS4, you can just do that with the TV settings.

If you guys didn't know the 360 also crushed blacks just go to avsforums.
jspillen  +   837d ago
Personally, I mainly just see difference in the detail level within sections of black color.

The PS4 clearly keeps the detail better in darker graphics areas.
tiremfej  +   837d ago
Meh...PS4 looks good. X1 looks good. It's nice to know that both systems can put this game out and have it look good. I won't be disappointed with this on my X1. As I'm sure PS4 owners won't be disappointed.

I have to say all the rumor B.S. was getting to me and having me second guess X1. Considering the only launch title I'm buying is this one, and the videos look this good on BOTH systems. My faith is once again restored in X1.
JohnJ  +   837d ago
Exactly. This whole dragged out story and bs has taught me not to listen to the internet gossip. The xbox one is guna ROCK. And as much as people want to deny they ever watch tv or will use skype in the future the xbox is going to be the mature gamers solution to complete future home entertainment and social gaming. Next gen is here - and it's with xbox one.
tiremfej  +   837d ago
I don't know if all the rumors are all BS...I'm sure right now with a month left there are some issues...however they're being worked on I'm sure.

I'll be 40 in May. I don't play games even remotely close to what I used to. That is why X1 is it for me. It is an all in one device. I can clear a few spots on my component shelf.
Themba76  +   837d ago
ps4 obviously better too many jaggies on x1 I know this because im a graphics art student and i recently completed a project at school and got an -a on my project because of one minor detail and it was I forgot to turn my raster effects up to 300dpi instead it was on 72 which showed more jaggies and at 300 alot less jaggies same with ps4 and x1. so on x1 too many jaggies=-a ps4 less jaggies=+a.

They booth look really good and pretty much the same. Except, the X1 version did look slightly better in some parts, but i'm sure other people will say the PS4 looked slightly better. The one thing we are ALL sure of is that there is definitely no 50% advantage. Hell, not even 5%.

You can see the difference in better comparisons. This is YouTube and very compressed. Not what you will see at home.

I believe the differences will be increased in the future. I mean, look at AC4. It looks almost the same between PS3 and PS4. These are all cross-generation ports and will look almost the same on all platforms.
IHassounah  +   837d ago
Sorry but stop lying on your self , like actually see some gameplay footage of The Division on both consoles , the gameplay we saw at E3 was running on a PS4 , the gameplay at Gamescom was running on an Xbox One , both looked identical but like what happened here, both had there own advantages

Oh... you mean the Neogaf forum. They changed their name to Neosony.

Seriously, don't believe everything you read on the Internet.

... and BTW, don't believe everything the corporations like Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo. Apple, Google, etc, tell you.

No, YOU and the rest of the Xbox fanboys changed their name to Neosony and SonyGAF and a bunch of other stupidity becaus they were laying into Microsoft and the XB1 for all the stupid shit that was going on. It'd be different if they were just creating and perpetuating outright lies. But since they tend to be industry insiders who must remain credible to remain part of the forum...

Well, you can curse them as pro-Sony if it helps make you feel any better.
T2  +   837d ago
wrong, if you go into any neogaf thread regarding xboxone games or wiiu games, they do not get hijacked by sony fanboys, furthermore, when there is a ps4 vs. xbone thread they are often locked due to fanboy wars.
Neogaf just happens to have a lot of people into technical stuff, and they know when MS is spouting pure b.s. and they call them on it.

And for tekkies, ps4 would be the way they would lean as it has better performance and CHEAPER price.... nothing more. most of them have pc's too
pixelsword  +   836d ago

So basically what you're saying is that professionals and people who work on games and people who know what's actually going on are pro-Sony.
0neShot  +   837d ago
It is known that neogaf is pro sony, nothing more nothing less.
