Over the last few weeks, a lot has been made about the graphical disparity between multiplatform games running on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In the middle of the dispute sits, of course, Call of Duty: Ghosts.
It sure does. In more ways than one.
Corse it matters it's amazing how bias sites like forbes, Engadget etc are what does it take for them to stop putting a spin on everything to aid Microsoft? Microsoft are putting out a considerably weaker console at a higher price and I've read articles stating power doesn't matter? the same sites that crushed ps3 when it came to multiplats this gen has even started and already we have one site (digital foundry) fixing comparison game coverage to help xbone then when caught out they blame the camera?? we have the countless spins from Microsoft and then them using PC footage but putting an xbox one banner to deceive Albert and the rest of the funky bunch completely lying to us about resolution or lack thereof.. wtf is going on with all this cover ups for Microsoft? is their advertising revenue that powerful and dependant...
What is better than great gameplay? Great gameplay with high graphics. It is simple as that. I do not see why fanboys try to cover this up.
dude wake up.
What?? Someone agrees power makes a difference..... I thought I had just been transported to an alternate dimensions where everything meant the opposite. Hopeful this can put things in perspective for those who need more proof than others.
I want more gaming quality for my money, so yes
strange thing is, compared to the XB1 the PS4 gives you more gaming quality for less money
It's interesting to see this much of a difference this early on. Clearly devs are having issues working around the various bottlenecks in the XB1 architecture. The system should be more than capable to take a game like CoD and display it much higher than 720p. 1st party games like Forza are being shown at 1080p/60fps so it's interesting to see the struggles from other devs. Looks like it could be a reversal of roles this time around where the PS4 will be extremely easy to develop for and devs will have to make work-arounds for the XB1 architecture...
I know, i actually thought we would see differences LATER on in the gen when devs have got used to the hardware some more. But differences showing at the start of a gen? The gap can only get bigger from here on....
Racing Games are much easier to make run @1080p 60fps much less detail and textures needed compared to other genres of games hence why a racing game is the only title on xbox1 confirmed running 1080p 60fps. Racing game suck to benchmark what hardware can do!
Well it must not matter too much since games on XBO running at 720 look better than games on PS4 running at 1080p, I couldn't believe it when I saw that.
Based on what crappy down sampled YouTube videos ? , YouTube butchers the quality of videos , in those comparison videos the xbox1 looked better then both PC and PS4, all the reviewers said the PC and PS4 version looked much better then the xbox1 version!
The reviewers, much like yourself, are delusional, trust your eyes, not what a bunch of xbox hating Sony hacks say in reviews. You cant trust anyone bashing XBO these days, everyone knows Xbox bashing gets hits on websites.
And I can't believe you still have five bubbles.
He has five bubbles because the "Power of the Cloud" is everywhere!
Which game is it? We would all love to know. @WeAreLegion Just another troll account. For a fact people make them to talk smack without the fear of hurting their real account on N4G.
Lol. I made a second account once. They deleted the account and banned me for a week for making a second account.
@Strikepackage Bravo No, you haven't seen it, you've never seen the gameplay of both the PS4 and XB1 running right in front of your eyes, direct from the consoles. Until you do, don't make that statement. You've seen crappy sampled YouTube videos which you probably weren't even watching at 1080p, yet that still won't make a difference as raw footage direct from the console is what you actually need to make a clear judgement.
What did you exactly saw?! Xbox one BF4 MP ( Floodzone) http://www.youtube.com/watc... Ps4 Bf4 MP ( Floodzone ) http://www.youtube.com/watc... So and now what? Did i made you cry?! im sorry.. /s You were comparing a video with 2 compressed images and now you can see the jaggies on the x720 and textures etc
Someone give strikepackage bravo a pillow and a hug, he needs a nap his delusions are running away with him. Or give him a swift kick in the ass, either way.
The denial runs deep in this one.
the PS4's software scaling to 1080p leaves a blurry after-taste, whereas the Xbox One stays sharp --albeit with more jagged edges. As you may notice in our screengrabs, the actual results on PS4 lack the corresponding level of crystal clarity we'd expect of such a significant resolution boost. This should surely be a home run for Sony's console, but what is likely to be a software-based upscale to 1080p delivers less-than-stellar returns, and for better or worse leaves the Xbox One with an often crisper looking, albeit much more aliased image. its the one and only game running less then 1080p on the ps4 and its seems the ps4 doesn't upscale very well, but all 1080p games on the ps4 will be pin sharp compared to 720p upscaled
its actually a hardware-based upscaler, Yoshida confirmed that. Your just delusional
@Nekroo91 my comment is about bf4 and this video on youtube, and yes I know that sony said there upscaler was hardware-based, regardless of hardware or software based its not working very well for this game http://www.youtube.com/watc... I was curious my self why the ps4 footage didn't look as sharp, and the above quote was from an article, which to me seems like a logical answer,
@ Strike Hey at least theres one guy out there that agrees with your nonsensical statements. haha gtfo.
Strikepackage Bravo Trust your eyes your fanboy mind is lying to yourself... http://i.minus.com/ib0gOrDz...
lol you're kidding right....
Indeed it does. Only delusional fools would think otherwise.
Well it seems its more about developers and software when the differences in power are so slight. Maybe we are just witnessing "lazy developers" at work on XBO. Although again, that DF footage proves that on XBO the games actually look better.
"proves that on XBO the GAMES actually look better."
Which GAMES are you talking about?
Oh are you speaking of the Digital Foundry article that they issued a retraction on and then a retraction to their retraction? That sounds like a super reliable source you have there.
@strikepackagebravo DF ?? What game is that a short form for ? And you obviously don't know what the bottleneck is on XBO or you would know why developers are having a hard time making XBO titles equal to PS4 , and I'm not even referring to XBO weak GPU , the major bottleneck is the 8GB DDR3 + 32MB eSRAM. The 32MB eSRAM is not big enough to handle the textures for 1080p and maintain 60fps which is why they solve this by using 720p.. 10MB of eDram worked on 360 because they only had 512mb or ram..
http://www.youtube.com/watc... After seeing this no matter what you people say, its clear that kids on the internet dont understand how specs relate to game development, XBO looks better, period. EDIT: Im convinced that lowering resolution actually allows XBO to render the games with higher quality, the PS4 footage is blurred in comparison to XBOs, it could also be Microsofts development tools or the XBOs slightly more advanced version of DirectX
Honestly, you have no idea what you are talking about. It is quite funny to see you claim expertise where none exists. 'its clear that kids on the internet dont understand how specs relate to game development' Damn straight, you are one of them.
strikepackage bravo stands before a mirror every morning and whispers "I'm a tool..I'm a tool..I'm a tool..I'm a tool........."
Yes of course strikepackage bravo..that's why all the kids are clamoring for the new 720p tv's and saying to heck with the 1080p flat panels. You make perfect sense. Heh folks, I think stikepackage bravo must be major nelson incognito. That is the only explanation for such rampant buffoonery.
Said it before and I'll say it again, comparing the two machines no longer makes any sense.
Comparing two machines with almost identical specs does, I don't see how people can even try to argue about strength of the consoles....when they use the same family of cpu and gpu with one having higher end version of gpu...there is no argument to which one is stronger... Ps3 vs 360 nvidia vs amd(with 360 having unified memory making it easier to develop for) and two vastly different cpus...its like apples and oranges... But the ps4 vs XB1 is like a comparing htc one vs htc one mini....very similar, same architecture just one is faster
The reason that comparing them makes no sense lies in the purposes they aim to serve and the experiences they aim to provide. Sony went about making their machine with very strong focus on it being a gaming machine. On the other hand, while Microsoft did intend to build a machine that can play "next-gen" games, they also wanted a machine that much better fits under the label of an "entertainment system", which is obvious seeing as its resources are spread out much more so that it can tackle other operations during gaming, such as music, movies, web surfing, snapping apps, and Kinect functionality. There is a difference between those drawn to PS4 and those to the One. The difference being that one group is buying for an affordable and powerful machine, engineered specifically games, while the other group is buying for an affordable and powerful all-in-one hub for their media consumption. The machine's may have many similar parts, but what those parts are for depends on the purpose the machine is intended to serve, thus the argument that almost same parts=almost same efficiency in operation is invalid.
Its a big gap, and will get bigger i'm afraid. Once Battlefield comes out, after the day 1 patch is added to both, and people capture the footage direct from the machines themselves, within the comfort of their own homes/offices, then they'll see why 720p upscaled is not somehow magically better than a native 1080p image.
Very much so no matter who tries to downplay it. We're moving towards a new gen of consoles, it's only fitting we get a substantial upgrade from their predecessors.
I do like that resolution no longer matters like many websites are saying. Just think the wiiu is now a viable next gen console. Also all those better ports last gen on 360 don't really matter at that./s I swear why is it ok now for a console to have less power when every website last year doomed the wiiu for it. If it mattered last year, it does today. Nothing changed.
Ps4 - Ryu, xbone - Dan
It's ridiculous, Microsoft should be running games at 1080p period. The machine cost a lot and it's next gen. To me there is no reason this should be not incorporated into their console. Upscale or not the machine should support 1080p period.
It does, it seems that at the time of development, before the specs and dev tools were finalized it was more difficult to get games to run at 1080p. Developers have said it will not be an issue in 6 months since the XBO will be finalized and everyone will know how to code on it better. Remember Forza runs at 1080p 60FPS. I do agree however this issue should not exist, Microsoft F'ed up. They are and always have been SLOW.
It must be nice to live in your dream world. Keep making excuses for them.
You have no idea what your talking about and makes me laugh, that's cool you like XBO power to you but you have no idea why XBO is running on 720p instead of 1080p . And once again racing games are the worst genre of a game to benchmark what hardware is capable of.. Racing games are much easier to achieve 1080p 60fps because there is much less high res textures needed.. You are the most uninformed person I have seen on n4g to date lol
It will be interesting to say the least when the big games start dropping such as fallout 4, borderlands 3 and red dead. We will know then if there is a major disparity between the two machines and yes, it will matter to a lot of people.
I dont know what it is with MS supporters but they insist that there is no difference between the consoles. It just doesnt exist to them. The truth of the matter is that Sony has the upper hand this round visually, demonstrating that on CoDG and BF4 pushing the same frame rate at higher pixel counts. Kinect doesnt mean crap to me nor does the unproven power of the cloud. What MS did towards the end of this generation is proof to me about how they see gaming us gamers and the future of the industry. Doesnt matter what the doubters say, I just want Sony to give me more of what they gave me on PS3, great games with variety and new experiences. Cant wait till 11/15/13!!!!
Great article. I couldn't have written it better myself and I wholeheartedly agree. All your eggs in one basket situation at MS, with Kinect.
Forbes is the most biased fu##er on yahoo. He has a huge hard on for Microsoft
But the power gap between ps4 and pc doesn't matter
The PS4 is the most powerful and superior console of the 2 period, get over it, stop the nonsense extreme denial. If you are getting the xbone that is fine, it is your money but at this point keeping denying and winning about the PS4 superiority is tiresome. The reality is there, PS4 is superior and life goes on.
Of course it matters. It is the sole reason PS4 will outsell the One by more than a 3/1 margin. The weak machine is 100 more. No thx.
