Comparing next-gen games: screenshots from the Xbox One, PS4, and more

The Verge: "For our feature comparing next gen games, we spent a lot of time testing — playing through graphically-challenging scenes, collecting screenshots and video clips, carefully examining graphics and shaders, watching for framerate drops, and having precious little fun. Here, you can find a complete collection of matched screenshots that you can use to compare various platforms to each other, plus full resolution images." (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, FIFA 14, Forza Motorsport 5, Killzone 3, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Madden 25, NBA 2K14, PS4, Xbox One)

Battlefield 4 is blowing me away right now. All that detail and running at 60 fps on a console, golly.

killzone looks better on ps3 than ps4

No it doesn't.

And Forza 4 is toe-to-toe with Forza 5. It even has better ground textures lol

I was actually questioning if you were serious about that statement but then I saw your comment history and realized that you're actually albert penello in disguise.

Assassins creed 4 looks way better too.

PS4 blatantly has better resolution.

PS4 can do more at more resolution. Xbone multiformat titles will never have parity if the developer pushes PS4

@shin, you better put an s at the end of your sentence unless you're blind. Forza 4 doesnt have real sand or grass and you still got way more agrees than disagrees. I know Forza 5 doesnt look as good as Driveclub even tho Forza 5 is only a launch title but its clearly much better looking than 4.

Why do fanboys fret over the "lowest common denominator" when it comes down to graphics that look alike on either console?! I mean you can't even sense a "WOW" factor in comparison to last gen.

If you want to argue specs than let's pull up our PC builds! Other than that...be true gamers and enjoy the game.

The only way you could possibly be correct would be if you have been playing killzone 2/3 in 480p and comparing footage of killzone shadowfall from youtube in 240p.
Angels3785  +   726d ago
Every game so far that has been said to be running at a lower resolution on xbox one looks worse, while the versions announced the same look the same. But it is a noticeable difference for sure you cannot ignore the screens...

heck ghosts AC4 and Battlefield were so obvious it felt like I was smacked in the face by them

same here. BF4 looks brilliant on PS4
caperjim  +   726d ago
I agree it does look great on PS4 but I wish it was 1080p instead of being upscaled from 900p. When compared to Killzone or ghosts that are running at 1080p native you can really notice the flaws that come with lower resolution.

They could have made it native 1080p if they devoted enough time to the PS4 version. Maybe they could patch it in like Ubisoft did with Assassins creed. I doubt they will though.
Chuk5  +   726d ago
It looks miles better than Ghosts. And it's gameplay scale is far larger than killzone.
Hyper_Tension140  +   726d ago
Is it just me or does Madden 25 look like is running on a lower resolution on xbone, notice the sharping from the scaler as well as the jaggies.

Okay I must be fuckin blind. For the most part kept confusing X1 with Ps4 and vice versa. That or the image quality is shit.
Chuk5  +   727d ago
The problem with this comparison is that these screens are compressed to hell. JPEG, like youtube, isn`t good enough for the next gen.
stuna1  +   727d ago
Exactly! I've seen both next gen console games side by side and compared to these screenshots... Well let's just say the differences are even bigger.
AndrewLB  +   726d ago
Did you even check the photos? They're PNG uncompressed images.

BG11579  +   726d ago
It's amazing how Forza4 doesn't suffer from the comparison comparing with Forza5.
BitbyDeath  +   726d ago
Why does Forza look worse on the Bone, are the images around the wrong way?
Muffins1223  +   726d ago
Yes ,images mixed up.
Not that hard to figure out which one is running on the bone an which one is not

2 the blind users above, check the hud please!!!the pictures are correct,quit yapping and start playing both awesome racers..and go check your eyes!!2 much playstation adorement affects eyesight aparrently!

Its another thing to downplay the machine and another to downplay the game series.Ok, ps4 is a lot better in graphics and the difference is instantly apparent, but that does nt mean thay every game on Xbox One(or bone for some idiots..)is for laughs!!Play games, not consoles!As a matter a fact, the consoles play games 2!!
BitbyDeath  +   726d ago
@doublebass2, you are wrong.
Just look at the road textures, the pictures are obviously around the wrong way, no way 360 would have better textures, also look at the beam above, according to this picture the new xbox is covered in jaggies where as the 360 version is smooth as.

The pictures are obviously around the wrong way.

yah you are right i chected the track by my self on my xb1 and find out that ther was never adidas and bmw written on the track walls ,yeah the images are wrong,i've already checked it 2 times ,or may be its looking equivalent is because the images are hihly compressed which is uncertain looks.
doublebass2  +   726d ago
you are full of its as well as blind, and preety sure you dont have either 360 or xbox1...FOrrza 4 never had tyre heat and gas brake indicators near the rpm gauge!!

STOP MAKING THINGS UP!!I am 267 level on forza 4 all achievements and play the game 2 times a week!!And i know that hud on the right is from another game and not forza 4!!(news flash ..is from Forza 5)

Nothing wrong with the picture, your eyes or belief that by spreading false impressions makes you better somewhat, is lacking severely!!

Its pretty obvious you never had played forza 4....THAT IS THE HUD!!!


go and watch videos on youtube or something, since you are practically a casual nonbeliever and even you ll figure it aut yourself!!....

And yes Forza 4 was sharp especially whne played in time lap, taken picture on the left(4x AA at that mode)

corvusmd  +   726d ago
There isn't a single case where the PS4 versions of these games looks significantly better...if at all....weird. That's supposed to be the PS4's only advantage and it's not even noticable in a screentshot
BitbyDeath  +   726d ago
Xbone has a blur effect to try hide the difference, it is very noticeable in the Battlefield comparison. Still the same game though so it really shouldn't matter at the end of the day.

Buy consoles for exclusives not multiplats.
GamersRulz  +   726d ago
well, it's very noticeable, you just don't want to admit it !

yeah ,you are right,cod is far better on ps4,but just look at battlefield and nfs ,they are like a copy paste on xb1 and ps4. there is no difference that can be found in the hell,oh sorry there is ps4 is missing some but important effects from its built,which are highly noticible for eagle eyes,i dont know but it may can be reason because sony is highy focusing on numbers's which is why they are more succesful in next gen .900p sounds more sweet then 720p and this may can be reason dice may had to off aa and shading effects or to minimise then ,becasue they had to maintain 60fps and i'am sure 720p is only the reason which is having better effects ,just look buy your self many small sadows and effects are missing from the built,yeah sony fan boys will dissagre me becasue this is n4g ,which is ruled by blind sony fanboys.

Just accept the fact the PS4 is significantly better. You choose the weaker console, you get weaker ports. Just accept it and move on. If it was so important to you, you should have done the smart thing and got the more powerful console instead. You know the one I'm talking about. It's the console that's focused on games.

They only thing you're doing by being in denial is making me full from all your delicious fanboy tears.

The visual gap is only going to widen so unless you come back to reality you're gonna be having a rough time in the near future.

Wow, ps4! Does look better and it will get better as time goes. " it's noticeable but it's not huge" then play last gen for the next gen life cycle, and see if u ain't trying to play next gen or sneak play et to be real lmao.
kingcasper  +   726d ago
you would need to be a raging inbred fan boi to not admit these games essentially look the same X1-PS4

the only thing i noticed different was color was sometimes better on X1

but on COD GHOST the color was better on PS4

but that is just color.. maybe u can adjust it or something
sephiroth420  +   726d ago
all of the pictures that are on the right, regardless of the console look better, it looks like the guy has used two different image qualities, anyone else notice that or do my eyes deceive me?
Hyper_Tension140  +   726d ago
Alot of people, I repeat ALOT of people think that battlefield 4 looks better on xbone. Go to youtube on the comparison of bf4 made by ign and digital foundry. Over a million people have seen both and most of the comments say that it looks better on xbone. You have no idea how mad I am, that was just a freaking youtube video. Its not even the final code, but people dont know that and now with the final code released things have changed. Go to eurogamer.com and look at the new face-off, xbone is no longer the sharper one. Please people of n4g tell the idiots on youtube this because their not listing to me! The comments on those videos are so stupid its not even funny. Everyone go ahead and see for yourself.

Salooh  +   726d ago
I'm playing AC right now on ps4. It's not pretty compared to BF5 and Killzone. It's a little bit better version of last generation. They need to take a next generation step or else it will have the same exact fate of call of duty. If you play it you will understand what i mean. Just don't get your hopes high for it's graphics...

SpinalRemains138  +   726d ago

Check out the atmosphere layer on Ghosts PS4 as opposed to the One version. Night and day. I don't know if its the picture quality itself or what, but the PS4 version is clearly sharper and more refined, while the Xbox version is a blurry blue mess.
darkstar18  +   726d ago
honestly im getting really bored with these ps4 vs xbone articles...can we get some real news -_-
Hercules189  +   726d ago
You'll have to wait til next week at the VGX. Then we will see that both consoles will have great looking games. Heres a news flash the difference between the original xbox and the ps2 was much larger than this current gen favoring the xbox. Did that stop Sony from having great looking games like Killzone or Shadow of the collossus or GOW. Even tho the xbox had better looking games, Sony still had amazing looking games at its time, so we should stop talking like the PS4 is in a different generation and start looking at the talented devs at Microsoft
Angels3785  +   726d ago
favoring xbox.......oh god xD whatever go back to sleep
Duke19  +   726d ago
Surprised how Killzone 3 and Forza 4 still look great by today's standards. So much time is being spent talking about graphics on launch titles, when really things aren't that different from last gen systems.

Cant wait to see what PS4/Xbone games look like in a few months when Developers have a few more time with the systems.
spacetoilet  +   726d ago
The last gen shots (360) really don't look that far off the next gen console shots. I know they are way more powerful and capable, but the days of the jaw dropping upgrades (like when I first saw ps2) are done I think. I'm not blown away by ps4/xboxone even though they are WAAAY more powerful than their predecessors.
Back in the day master system to genesis was a huge leap, so was NES to SNES ps1 to Ps2, C64 to AMIGA...yes I'm that old.
I do have a beastly PC, maybe that always keeps my expectations a little high on the visual end, IDK.
All I'm saying is that the 360 shots look great to me in this article, even though it's a decade old.
S2Killinit  +   726d ago
watching the video on my cell phone I could tell the PS4 was way clearer. but watching the same video on my laptop, I couldn't tell the difference except in the scene with the crows where you cant see some of the far distance crows on the xboxone
Flames76  +   725d ago
Wow Madden looks horrible on the PS4 what the hell?Also battlefield 4 looks dull on the PS4 ive played it i know its not just the screen shot.Battlefield 4 on the Xbox One brighter visuals and more detail.Glad thats what i got it on the Xbox One.After seeing these horrible screen shots of the games on the PS4 im glad i skipped on it.Now i know why there are PS4 at the walmart stores around here and Xbox One is sold out damn
jackdaniels  +   725d ago
Very interesting,

COD on both systems looks crap, Battlefield 4 the two systems look very similar. all the sports sims look the same.

AC4 looks better on the PS4 (to me), the boat in the distance is clearer on the PS4 version.

Having said that, the xbone is far superior to the 360's (except in the forza comparison - very similar indeed in the static comparison), in other words, Xbone or PS4 you're getting a great upgrade, everyone should be happy.
