"similarities"?! we dont wanna hear about the similarities, we wanna hear about the differences, we wanna know why its 900p on PS4 and 720p on X1, we wanna know why you couldnt hit 1080/rock solid 60fps. Oh the politics. Its pathetic when even video games are political

Also, i wanna know why its blurry looking on the PS4 and sharp on the X1?

We already know why PS4 is 900p etc..

Better GPU and RAM leads to a better output no hidden secrets here

They already said it was the botched footage from Digital Foundry. All these sites are STILL using the footage from D.F

All we can do is take peoples word for it and Jack Frag among others (who make a living on Youtube on XBOX 360) have admitted that the PS4 version looks better.

Hm, i hope you're right about the blurry image cuz that's annoying me.


I know thats why, i could care less that the X1 version runs at 720p but i just wish they could have pushed it further on the PS4 and had made it run at 1080/rock solid 60fps.

Oh well a guy could wish, but i hope your right about the blurriness svoulis

Speaking from the mindset of a graphic designer, and not a tech specifications buff, when you blow up an image the most you can do is double it's size and it would have some visual hiccups but nothing outrageous.

So the blurriness in the PS4 version would tell me that it's really a lower resolution natively then being led on. The blur effect would be used to cover up the hiccups to some degree.

But again, I speak only from the perspective of a graphic designer and not one that's knowledgeable about technical specs and tv resolutions.

I'm sure that developers have been asked the same questions thousands of times, and I'm pretty sure they're tired of it. That's probably why they are being vague.

They wouldn't get asked anymore if they originally just told everything how it is.

In other news, Renault have decided a new model that drives just like a Ferrari. And the Renault costs £10,000 more.
C-H-E-F  +   166d ago
ehh my poor bubbles :(
but I must comment on this... uhh why would they do such a thing. That's like me buying a next gen console that does everything another one does but this one is... less powerful, Uses cheaper parts, not as sleek, not as reliable but costs more. I will be googling this vehicle you speak of smh. I thought Renault made rally cars and those little if I get in a car accident going 10mph I'll die looking cars.

1. X1 is profitable, not being sold at a loss whatsoever. That's their plan for as long as their able to stick to it.

2. They expect their current fans to follow them through thick or thin, ridicule, horrible ToS or anything else.

3. Kinect raises production cost. It's the same reason the Wii-U can't drop too far in price to where we (consumers) think it should be.

900p on ps4? 720p on X1?
RIP_Cell  +   166d ago
4k on PC :)
black0o  +   166d ago
u mean upscaled to 4k
Theendgame  +   166d ago
Your Pc can run this game in 4k?
boneso82  +   166d ago
WOW, what are you running in that PC of yours that can play battlefield 4 at 4k?

If it can play it at 4k is it v-synched at 60fps? Or jumping between 5 and 15fps?
tubers  +   166d ago
@ stable 60 FPS with crossfired R9 290x costing $ 1,100 in GPUs alone?

Amazing value! xD

You guys are such idiots. I downloaded the uncompressed 1080p videos of both and they're identical. You're getting yourselves worked up over nothing. Seriously, get a life before you get a new console! 1080p upscaled looks like native 1080p. You can not see the difference. I played it on my 55 inch Sony 1080p TV. It is identical!

That means a lot coming from a guy named KingTrash. Go play the M$ exclusive FPS coming out at launch. Oh yeah there isn't one.
Edit: I might not even get Battlefield I'm looking more towards Killzone.

KingTrash  +   166d ago
Oh no! No exclusive FPS at launch? What am I gonna play besides BF4 and COD? Oh, that's right. I can play Forza, DR3 or Ryse. What are you gonna play? Knack and a bunch of shovelware indie games? I'll get a PS4 down the line when Naughty Dog comes out with something but right now, you have nothing. Don't believe the hype!

am i seeing double?
JodyCones  +   166d ago
You're watching a compressed video. I have a 1080p Sony Bravia as well, and if you can't tell the difference between 720p up scaled and 1080p native you need your glasses changed. 720p was last gen, why are you settling for less? This is a next console we're talking about. Yes battlefield 4 is 720p on xbone, and 900p on PS4, but for that game it's still better and holds frames smoother. Everyone I know is going PS4. And it's PS4 day 1 for me. But if you're getting an xbone 720p lol, more power to you. This topic just isn't something you should be trying to justify for your purchase.

@Kingthrash360 I would be inclined to say yes, but your comments generally make more sense. Maybe it's a clone, but some of the genetic code got 'lost'

Don't believe your own eyes! Jack fags says ps4 is better! Must be true!
boing1  +   166d ago
It is.
wishingW3L  +   166d ago
And Digital Foundry says the same, so what's your point?

PS4 has higher frame-rate, higher resolution, Ambient Occlusion and more natural colors instead of crushed blacks for having the contrast so high.

I think gamers and developers have to admit that whats happening this gen is what was happening last gen microsofts console is holding back sonys console again ok i admit the shared memory pool of the PS3 didnt help but on paper both of sonys consoles has been more powerful.If microsoft is going to do that every gen they should get out of the market.But develpers wont admit that as money talks if microsoft gives enough money to make games on their systems then they will.The only time microsoft was more powerful than sony was with the original xbox and if they came out a little earlier then they may have been a force to be intimidated by.
