Well PS4 is only running at 900p so there is obviously is no comparison. PC also has the option for better graphics in the future via higher resolutions (4k) and better quality AA (supersampling AA for people who have the hardware). At this point PS4 is still no where to be seen.

At release PS4 user base will be of no compare to the PC user base out there and since this is an MP game it makes most sense to get it on the platform with the highest user base.

getting both PS4/PC myself

anyone who can afford $2000 on a high end rig should do so.

and to put things in perspective, this is from the face-off article on EG.

"PC set-up: just its eight-core AMD FX-8350 CPU, 8GB of RAM and dual-Crossfired HD 7970s would cost us around £680($1100) in total - not including the HDD, motherboard and PSU(also OS+M/K+BRplayer)"

now lets consider..

the PC gives that level of improved performance demonstrated in the video for an extra $1000

the PS4 gives improved performance on the XB1 demonstrated today for $100 LESS.

Dont need a 2000usd gaming rig to play BF4, a 500usd machine will do a better job than the consoles too.


You just cant consider the PS4 cost over 1 game. Too many hidden costs which when considered make PS4 easily more expensive.

Pay to go online, costlier games, Lack of BC. In the long run PC is always cheaper no matter how you spin it.

^In order to have the same level as the console you need at least a HD7850 or GTX650Ti Boost. To get 60fps at 900p that is. And based on some benchmarks on the beta, a good CPU is really needed, which is at least an AMD 6-core or i5 (i3's aren't going to cut it anymore). So in essence the PS4 still costs less at $399.

@decrypt according to steam data only 3% play on Ult-setting so that makes every PS4 player enjoy a better experience with just 399$
Nerdmaster  +   422d ago
You don't need to play on ultra settings for it to be better than consoles.
Blackdeath_663  +   422d ago
@decrypt i'd love to see you try and build a machine for 500USD that will out preform the PS4 as a PC gamer and someone who has tried to do it already there is no way in hell you can build a PC for the same price as the PS4 that will out preform it, not including the man hours you have put into making that machine work and all the hassle that follows all of that assuming you are pirating the OS i mean seriously windows 7 alone costs a quarter of the price. no way, trust me it cannot be done.

PS: that is also assuming you are buying your parts from the US or canada PC parts are many time more expensive for the rest of the world

Sad to say, but that's just downright bullshit.
I myself love pc gaming, but you're spewing garbage right now. There is literally no way you can spend 500 USD to build a machine that is as good as PS4 with all the parts available to us.
ninjajason51  +   421d ago
@snhooze Today parts are really cheap, you can get a 7870 for 150$ and a 7970 for 250$ plus a 8320 for 169$ making it really easy to build a powerful cheap computer for around 500-600$. Also to the guy that think it takes hours to build a computer, it takes roughly 45min, all it is, is putting parts in slots and plugging stuff in. and all the spots to plug stuff in is marked on the motherboard.

Decrypt. Of course pc has more options as far as upgrades go. But as things stand right now when looking at both. They look 99% the same. The capture footage of the PS4 is broken and is the same on another site.

I game at 1080p on my PC. But if a game has pushed more then my pc can handle I've dropped it to same ratio, other it looks too blurry on current day monitors. CRT still the best tbh. You could stretch and it would still look sharp,lol.

As it stands


I played the beta on PC at 1080p on a ati6870. It was between 35-45fps mostly. But I have no idea how much more the full game pushes things.

Either way it still looks good on all systems.

Looks like PC is the real next gen choice, but I do like my consoles, interesting all the crap the Xboxone got for high contrast yet the PC looks the same.
SirBradders  +   422d ago
PC isn't a gen.
tudors  +   422d ago
Don't be childish, you know what I meant, last Gen when the 360 was released it was doing things with the GPU that some of the latest PC cards were not doing at the time, with the next gen approaching we can already see the PC is way ahead already, I considered building a next gen PC but I prefer consoles, just pointing out that the PC is making the consoles look like old tech already which only matters if you are a PC loyal.

Ps4 not lived up to expectations
jp_footy2  +   422d ago
You don't have expectations.
ANIALATOR136  +   422d ago
erm. of course it did. same goes for xbox one
Buljo  +   422d ago
PS4 looks a bit washed out, but graphically there really isn't that much of a big difference. Probably the RGB range on the PS4 is the problem.
RevXM  +   422d ago
Its probably because of the capture method.
some other site compared XO and PS4 and said that the captured PS4 footage isnt quite representable of the on screen image in that regard.

PLASTICA-MAN  +   421d ago
I can understand german, he clearly confirmed that is because of capture video, also this site is specialized in PC gaming ditching consoles all the time, now he says that the PS4 looks identical almost the same if not the same as PC version(they said they used a very high priced amd CARD° also the upscaled 900p to 1080p is almost the same. He even finds it how the PS4 version ahs betetr smashed glaas window on the car than on PC. Finally he recommends the PS4 version! Come on PCgames.de you always used to balme consoels for bad ports and graphics, what did happen now? /s
MGS_fanatico_  +   422d ago
I speak fluent German (I'm not German though) and to summarize, what they're saying is:

- The PC version that they were playing was using a high-end ATI-graphics card (unspecified though).

- If your PC is under 1000 euros, it's likely that it's going to look worse than the PS4 version.

- The game is noticeably higher than 720p, but not quite full HD, so in other words 900p (this we already knew).

- Aside from the filtering, the game is pretty much identical to the PC version and even at very demanding scenes, runs at mostly 60fps.

All in all, they were impressed by the PS4 version and highly recommended it considering it's a 400 euro machine.

I cannot wait for this game my PS4 pre-order is bundled with this and Killzone.
I have a rig with a GTX770 but most of my friends will be on the PS4 and that is where the fun will be at for me, might get both when PC version drops in price.
Azurite  +   422d ago
Wow, why did they use that PC footage?
It was plagued by popups.
sigfredod  +   421d ago
Probably the PC they use was having problems to stream on the settings they use
RevXM  +   422d ago
Im going to stick with the ps4 with this one.
that is if the campaign is lenghty and good enough, otherwise Ill wait to pick it up cheap.

Id love to get it for pc, even if itll look horrid on my current spec Im bound to uppgrade some day.
Its just that the PS4 version is going to be the best I can afford in quite some time.

And how is Origin?
I've avoided it ever since it launched because it got a ton of crap, but I figure it may have changed so I might just give it a go so I can get games like BF3 and Crysis 3.
Jovanian  +   422d ago
Its a shooter, it looks and plays best on PC and thats the platform I'm gonna get it on, the true BF experience the way it was meant to be played since BF 1942.
MuhammadJA  +   422d ago
pc version is better. know why? when you buy the game for pc, go to the video settings and you'll see how much stuff in there that can be maximized or minimized. it's common sense.
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   421d ago
Then throw in some mods, like sweetFX etc.

For $599 dollars you can get a kick ass system "I'll Prove it to you"
CPU ($170): http://www.amazon.com/Intel...

Motherboard ($60): http://www.amazon.com/MSI-C...

PSU ($50): http://www.amazon.com/Corsa...

Harddrive ($54): http://www.amazon.com/Toshi...

RAM 4GB($35): http://www.amazon.com/PNY-O...

PC Case($50): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0...

Graphics Card ($180): http://www.amazon.com/MSI-G...

In a few month's when Maxwell comes out you can get what is considered a high end system today (GTX 780) for the same price!

This system that I didn't even try all that hard to put together would "DESTROY" the XBOX ONE in every way and play Battlefield 4 in full HD with high settings no comprmise!

Anyone else notice at 2:03 when the soldier open the hatch that the ligting load faster on the PS4? lol
Azurite  +   421d ago
It's because the PC-version doesn't load the models for it fast enough. You can see same thing happen when they drive in the town at about 1:12 - 1:20.

I got 5 disagrees for mentioning the popups in a previous post, be careful.
123pol  +   421d ago
why is the ps4 footage so washed out in the colors ? both pc and xbone have more black colors. but the ps4 and pc has better textures and less jaggies.
Timmey  +   421d ago
they say right at the beginning of the video that it's their capture device that makes the picture so lightcolored, they praise the ps4 image as they see it...
123pol  +   421d ago
ok. i watched it on mute. thx for answer :)
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   421d ago
No doubt, PC looks better, it should IMO. But since its just a release multiplat i would like to wait a bit, and then see how will PS4 look in 2-3 years or so.
