Still seeing the same differences only more subtle here.
Comparing them by negatives, visible in this particular video:

over used lens flare
plastic skin
dark but not digital foundry dark


slightly washed color
soft textures

Pick you poison.
They both look great but neither is flawless/perfect.

Yeah I guess you're right, because I cant really tell myself. I think the end result is you get a great looking game no matter which console you choose so thats good news for all gamers.

PS4 version looks worse with soft textures - was expecting the PS4 version to be much the same or slightly better but it's certainly not the case in this example.

TristanPR771664d ago

Well the whole Internet beg to differ from you since everyone reviewing the game has confirmed that the PS4 version is the superior version.

RegorL1663d ago

In reality the world has quite soft textures.

When photographing cheap compact cameras often over sharp or over contrast the image.

XBox One is over the top.

But comparing to PC you see that PS4 indeed has softer textures. I wonder if PS4 plays single player completely of Blu-ray.
(XBox is know to have an option to install a texture pack)

PS4 version's advantages over the Xbox One version thus far

- Higher resolution (900p vs 720p)
- Ambient Occlusion
- Self Shadowing
- Motion Blur
- More consistent frame rate
- Better Anti Aliasing
- More accurate IQ and colour palette (similar to the PC version)

Xbox One's advantages(?)

- Sharper (Due to aggressive sharpening, which does also result in a lot of edge halo'ing and added aliasing and shimmering)
- Stronger contrast and saturation (Completely different to the PC/PS4 versions, the XO version has a higher contrast look with crushed blacks and blown whites)

"""- Sharper (Due to aggressive sharpening, which does also result in a lot of edge halo'ing and added aliasing and shimmering)

this can be easy fixed (if you want)by changing the TV setting (Sharpness and saturation)and turn on the Full RGB on ps4
so those are not advantages.
ps4 advantages however are spot on

Yeah okay buddy lol

Nick_5151664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

Yeah, that sharpening really makes some noise and makes things look ugly. Sure, it looks fine fine for surface textures, but for player models it looks horrible.

The videos don't really show the differences, as they are, obviously, not even close to the quality we'll see at home. Also, the PS4 version isn't actually blurry, it's just that, compared to the Xbone in a video, it's not as noticeable. Video isn't sharp enough to see the textures clearly. If you look at the PC version, you can see that the PS4 is very, very, close to it, minus the resolution and a couple things.

Looks like your way of spinning the fact the Xbox One version looks better.

-Plastic Skin- is the lack of being washed out with more vibrant color and sharper textures

-over used lens flare - is better lighting and more pronounced graphical effects

-Dark- Better contrast and not washed out.

XB1 scaler and Direct3D 11.2 looks like it's showing its usefulness even before the devs get a handle on XB1's custom hardware and cloud compute.

Also don't believe anything coming from Neogaf or most of the media for that matter.

Funny. Some media being upset over Sony trying to control what people said about PS4 and how to cover it and its games, was blowing up the web the other day. The top media that will have access to PS4 coverage(and get PS4's for review) verbally point out the PS4 wins but show it doesn't LOL

GiggMan1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

"Don't believe anything from NeoGaf or most media for that matter?" o_0

We should believe you though.

Every media outlet that has seen both says that the PS4 version is better and you say don't believe them, we should listen to you? A person who has just seen screenshots and youtube vidoes... lol

xHeavYx1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

What are you talk.. Oh, wait, one bubble... Nevermind, go troll somewhere else

DoesUs1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

LMAO! 43% less pixels OUCH, AND a lower average framerate OUCH, Terribad multiplayer gfx OOUUCCHH, massive aliasing issues OOOUUUCCCHHH!

Borked hardware is to blame on XB1, sames as 360 as mentioned by DICE.

"-Dark- Better contrast and not washed out."

Thus crushing detail. See above.

"don't believe anything coming from Neogaf or most of the media"

So just listen to you and Misterxmedia then? Roger that.

After years and years on N4G, you just keep talking sh!te trying to donwplay Sony. Evidence is everywhere my friend! Next it's AC4, and then its COD! A worrying pattern after less than a month! OOOOUUUUCCCCHHHH.

See you in November.

claudionmc1664d ago

They both look great. Despite running at a lower res the XB One version still manages to hold up quite well. I don't think that the PS4 version is more blurry. I think it's more of a contrast setting issue. Where I think it's going to make a difference in in MP. Because of the lower resolution, the XBO version is going to really suffer. Backgrounds will shimmer and it's going to be harder to spot actual moving opponents vs shimmering textures.

Both look good to me and pretty freaking identical.

ape0071664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

no 50% difference lol

ABizzel11664d ago


It pains me to see how ignorant some peoples comments can be.

*900p > 720p (a big chunk of 50% goes to resolution)
*50 - 60fps > 40 - 60fps
*Some AA > Whatever is going on with the Xbox one version

While these don't show a 50% difference in graphics it does show a non-arguable performance boost in favor of the PlayStation 4. Most people may be able to write off a higher resolution because they're use to 720p from last gen, but an average of around 15% - 20% more fps can't be overlooked and it makes no sense to buy the Xbox one version if you have the choice.

GiggMan1664d ago

No $100 difference either...

Nick_5151664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

You can't really say much, especially since this a cross-generation game. Of course the differences are minimal right now.

tiremfej1664d ago

To me they both look great. I prefer the darker look of X1, I watch TV with a darker contrast as well. It is my personal preference. However the PS4 does have less jaggies. Which is noticeable in distance items.

Honestly, in the end the difference isn't too discernable.

Software_Lover1664d ago


Post videos

Don't label them as ps4/xbone

Switch them up sometimes

Let the fan boys argue

Then a week later, label them correctly and watch people eat crow

Clarence1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

That's a good idea. Both look the same except PS4 has softer colors vs the xbone. I actually like the xbone sharpness better. Still going with PS4.

I don't like how M$ has handled their business this time around.

BattleTorn1664d ago

A solid idea. Another would to only show the platform after the poll has been completed.

kB01664d ago

Except wasn't it confirmed that the ps3 version is higher resolution?

dcj05241664d ago

The ps3 you use is from a different dimension.

kB01664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )


PLease ignore my "magical" PS3 comment, I actually meant the 4 hahaha

I'm glad I didnt' see any agrees ahah.
