Ps4 is the undisputed champion of the current gen
Trying to get your bubbles up huh lol, I would wait until they release more games to crown it but it's looking good for us if all the games release this year.
"Trying to get your bubbles up huh lol" that was a bit well.......immature it's the way you said it it sounded a tad bit immature
@ssj4fox I think it's the way you read it, and your comment sounds a a tad bit immature as well.
Oh my god...are you still going with that.
Bubble down for you sir. OT: Chrissx is completely right. PS4 is the undisputed champion of the current-gen.
@medman I bought both. Nothing is an issue. Never a fanboy, just a fan of games.
I'm not planning on buying this game but if I was I would would choose the best console version available. PS4 is the the best option for 3rd party games this gen and with Sony's first party studios the quality belongs to the PS4
i dont need to know or wait when i know that sony has the best gaming AAA studios in their arsenal nuff said
First it was the resolution debate now framerate is the issue. Some fanboys are the worst.
It's only a debate or an issue if you bought a bone. There is absolutely no issue if you bought a PS4.
There is no debate. The PS4 has games of higher resolution and/or higher framerate. Admittance of these facts does not take a fanboy; it does, however, take a fanboy to debate the facts. ;)
Fanboys are people who blindly defend their product of choice and downplay or deny the factual superiority of the rival product at all costs. I think we all know who that definitions fits well these days...
Its only been out what 2 months, I don`t think there is a winner yet.
The winner was decided in Feb 2013 actually. The May 21st announcement kind of solidified it in Sonys favor. Better specs are better specs. How is that even up for debate at this point?
@ FamilyGuy Winner is not chosen by Specs. Look how well the WII sold, it had weaker specs then the ps3/360
As many great games were on the Wii, most people bought it casually for Wii sports and never touched it again. It's not a bad system; unfortunately, it had the circumstance of being a fad in the common market because nothing like it had come out before, and it was the cheapest console amongst the big three.
europe sony asia sony "with china in also" australia sony half of the U.S sony im pretty sure sony got this again for another generation they won with ps1 they won with ps2 they won the 360 with a year headstart + 650bucks in their back the xbox will always enjoy last place like 2 generations now
developers decide which is the "better version".
Specs aren't everything but in this case they do indeed make a difference
Specs didn't matter much before because games didn't push as many polygons. Anyone saying that specs don't matter and only the game matters is just trying to validate his/her purchases. As we move forward,better specs means : 1-better looking games 2-more content can be added(characters,textures,land scapes..etc) 3-making open worlds is easier And so on,,sure these elements doesn't mean that a game would be better,lots of beautiful looking games control so badly or are just mediocre(Crytek games come to mind) but that doesn't mean that we don't need these enhancements to our games. Specs aren't everything,but in this age of gaming,it's a must have to push the boundaries of the gaming industry and gaming in general.
RAW specs alone is not great. Smart architecture can produce better results if used right (thus pc's with gazzilion of ram and gpu power sometimes struggle to handle a game that a weaker console game without a problem) To remind you xbox360 had higher RAW power than ps3 and we know how it turned out. Recently confirmed by witcher 3 dev that 360 was more powerful than ps3...and ofcourse we got raw specs themselves! http://www.freewebs.com/bad... So knowing how XO has way more complicated architecture this time around, I think we should give it a bit of time. For MS to release better drivers and tool and for devs to learn to use move engines, layered chips and esram so it can handle things like tiled resources well.
Clearly you have no idea about how the internals of the XB1 actually work....
If you truly want to push the boundaries of gaming, buy a PC; better graphics, bigger worlds, better modding community, more functionality, upgradable, and can also be inexpensive.
@BallsEye you sure know how to spread FUD.
I'm playing this game right now...on XB1, and I can tell you that the game is still fun (I forgot how much fun, should have been in GOTY running), and it looks amazing, all the online videos do it no justice. I have no idea what he means when he says it looks sluggish...it looks FANTASTIC, and I was actually worried that since neither version is locked at 30fps that it would get sluggish at points....not even close so far...it runs smooth ALL the time. MAYBE side by side you MIGHT notice a slight difference between the two games, but if you're just playing one or the other, there is NOTHING to whine about...it just seems like all this "numbers" business is something to be spoiled about...the game is great on either system...play it, and remember what it's like to be a gamer...instead of turning into an elitist hipster number nazi. BTW, why does everyone say that the XB1 version is running AT 30fps? there has been no confirmation of this number that I have seen..if so please show it. All I have heard so far is that 30 was the minimum, but that both versions run above that with PS4 close to 60 at most times and XB1 close to 45-50 at most times. 30 compared to 60 is a bit different than 45 compared to 60...either way the PS4 is running higher...but why the need to be purposefully dishonest? It seems insecure to lie about something like that....
The xb1 can reach 45fps but it's average fps is 30fps that is what been said don't know where your heard it runs at 45-50fps at most time it runs at 30fps most of the time wait until the digital foundry comparison comes out
People that are deficient in areas they wish were bigger, seem to latch on heavily to having more in other areas to prove their worth. Fact is there is way more to these consoles than resolution and fps. That being said they were ported by different studios. Non were done by Crystal Dynamics. I am not giving that as the reason for the difference as I have no idea. But it is relevant to mention. As you said. If you play the game on X1 you will fully enjoy it, if it is your type of game. Same for PS4 owners.
The only thing PS4 owners have right now to feel confident about their purchase are minor differences in multiplats This isn't Atari specs vs PS1 Resolution numbers won't be the deciding factor this gen Idk why they exaggerate on these differences and make up things like "crushed blacks" to try to negate that multiplatform games look the same
@ lifeisgamesok http://www.neogaf.com/forum... The only things people are making up are those things which are said in denial of the truth. Microsoft actually ADMITTED that they didn't focus on producing a high-end machine, in favour of "broad-entertainment" ; which is multimedia, TV and Kinect non-gaming attributes. Sad but true. http://www.gengame.net/2013... There's nothing wrong with admitting Sony produced a significantly more focused and stronger gaming system that developers have said time and time and time again that you can get better performance from. Keep downplaying and the facts will keep surfacing, it will only make you look stupid. Enjoy your console, but don't skew what we already know to be true and what we've known for months.
Are you guys fword-ing kidding me. Where the fword were these balanced logical comments last gen you hypocrites. All of a sudden BIGGER differences mean less than the smaller differences last gen huh. Some of you guys are really showing your rear ends. How many times you going to flip flop under the guise of taking the moral high ground? Multiplatform games were, 99% of the time, just as enjoyable. Now we are seeing more telling disparities so yeah, as always, enjoy your experiences but please cut the crap. Nobody is fooled
That's why I try to refrain from fanboyism; everything in life is cyclical and comes back to you two-fold. Just in this thread alone: "MAYBE side by side you MIGHT notice a slight difference between the two games, but if you're just playing one or the other, there is NOTHING to whine about...[play it]instead of turning into an elitist hipster number nazi." "Fact is there is way more to these consoles than resolution and fps." "Resolution numbers won't be the deciding factor this gen. Idk why they exaggerate on these differences and make up things like "crushed blacks" to try to negate that multiplatform games look the same." I remember this fanbase declaring just the opposite from 2005-10. They openly wondered how Sony fantards could enjoy such sub-standard experiences like Bioshock, Orange Box, Bayonetta, Red Dead Redemption, and Call of Duty amongst others on their preferred platform. Now resolution and framerate are no longer the deciding factors. The goalposts have moved. The hypocrisy is delicious. I'm on a diet too so these empty calories are better than rice cakes.
The downplaying is more or less, sickening. Especially when you compare what these same folks were doing last gen. If these people knew the full extent of the disparity between the two consoles, they'd probably have a breakdown and go into further damage control/denial mode. It just makes me want to grab them and say "look what you did and said last gen you f***in hypocrite". The results will show, and these people will continue to portray desperation itself.
PS4 Master race :P
yawwwwwn anyways when are the decent games coming out
I'm enjoying TR right now on PS4. I didn't complete the game on PS3 so it was an easy buy for me. It looks incredible. Whats funny is that it has voice commands that work really well too.
Any noticeable frame rate hiccups or screen tearing?
I've had one spot where it hiccuped while I was going up steps. No action was going on so no biggie.
Well I'm definitely looking forward to this, and I'm glad to see that both definitive editions look better than the PC, but if anyone tried to pay attention, they'd see that thePC was simple a high res 60fps version of the PS3/360 version with TresFX, there are a host of cosmetic and dynamic upgrades in this not present in the PC version which permeates the PS4 and XBO version. Comparatively speaking the definitive edition is the version to own, and if you own both a ps4 and xbo, the PS4 is another brained, Definitely Definitive on the Definitive Next Gen Console, PS4. Picking it up next week.
Why is there even still a discussion over which console is the best? Ps4 is more powerful. FACT. (Case in point: TR:DE). Its CHEAPER. Its parent company has a 20 year track record of providing awesome, numerous GAMES upon GAMES. Even the ****ing CONTROLLER is universally acknowled to rock. Why is there still resistance? O_o
Good question, but you wouldn't believe the answer if MS told you. Its called Xbox.
Pc must be the Ultra definitive version it even has blood in it wow.
We already know that the PS4 is the DEFINITIVE console this gen.
60fps is all I ask for this gen, that smoothNess is no joke I can live with upscaled 1080p All that Gddr5 goodness is gonna make open world games kick so much ass I'm getting excited... greatness Awaits
Then you need to watch this : http://www.blurbusters.com/... Battlefield 3 being played at 120fps,it's mind blowing how smooth the gameplay is! I need to invest in buying a 120hz monitor.
you do realize if your monitor is 60hz you can only watch in 60fps right.............
My tv is 120, gotta check this out
All is cool but you shouldn't bring up the ram. GDDR5 will not help with open world games. It is only good for graphics computations, that's why it is not used as main memory in todays computers. DDR is more suitable for computations that you usually see in open world games.
WTF are you even talking about?! PLEASE, dont talk about anything you have absolutely ZERO knowledge of! Where are you reading this sh!t?!
@ DoesUs He has absolutely no idea what he's talking about. He tried it downplaying the same with PS4, a few months ago. inFamous: Second Son will completely embarrass his unfounded theory that "GDDR5 will not help with open world games". Then we'll see open world games like Watch_Dogs running better on PS4 and his statements will continue to be laughable.
I'm glad PS4 got the best version of Tomb Raider but do we need so many articles to say so?
Unfortunately, praising the ps4 for being better than xbone/wiiU is what's popular and gets the most hits. once people get bored with the same, old, redundant, polygon count debates, we can get back to actual NEWS 4 GAMERS.
Duh the PS4 is more powerful than the X1
It's ain't rocket science.
I knew there were differences in the framerate but I'm surprised that there are also differences in graphical effects. I wasn't expecting that to be honest.
Better looking than the PC version? Seriously? There is something wrong with this game. We shouldn't be happy for play 4 version. I don't like playing PC, but I know that games always look better no PCs
people fighting over the PC vs console version. Wow this is funny. You guys do realize the PC version is the same old code from LAST YEAR lol. If it had the updated version there would be nothing to talk about. This is all click bait stuff... marketing... hype Instead of saying "oh it looks better than the PC version" Say "It looks better than the old PC build with old code WITHOUT all the extra features FROM LAST YEAR" lol. That's more of the truth... If you want to admit it or not lol. HOWEVER... I'm going to pick this up for PS4 being there's nothing else to play for a WHOLE MONTH
So, while downloading the Xbox One version he started to play the game. Would not downloading and playing the game cause the noticeable "sluggish" frame rate? Why respond when there is no side by side comparison? Furthermore when one version was not fully downloaded.
Imagine with added cloud power... 1000fps minimum. /S It's logical to make decisions based on the less expensive, most advanced technologically, better games, better exclusives, better gameplay, better graphics, better future, well, just see which console have most of this items and buy it.
Both versions are a success but as we all knew and expected PS4 has the edge again. Stronger hardware - no disputing a fact. Devs able to utilize PS4 properly unlike the Cell last gen. Sony is just getting started.
i heard the Kinect integration made the xbox one version alittle more cooler..you can use your hand to view the relics at different angles an the voice commands were smoother on xbox....he says the games looks 100% the same just the PS4 run at a higher framrate which isn't really noticeable cause the game doesn't really suffer from any slow down issues....so if the only difference is a few extra frames that you really cant tell then whats all the hubbub about....I beat this game on the 360 an I actually own the digital copy with all the DLC so I see no need to buy it again...
and I still wont pay 60 bucks for a rehash game. Make it 20 and I may consider it
Well, not everyone bought this game last gen. I just picked this up for the first time today for my PS4, and I had no problem paying full price for it.
i hope you enjoy it :D Its a decent game.
Seems there are lots of articles regarding the higher quality multiplats on PS4, TR being the latest. So I decided to do some research yesterday regarding Xbox One framerates to find out for myself. To my dismay, I found on Digital Foundry that the Xbox One games running at 30fps, frequently dip below at around 22-24fps. Did MS make a 360.5? One example being Dead Rising 3, that struggles even in cutscenes? This even after the 13GB patch?? What kind of a gap will there be in performance in 2 or 3 years from now? Why have MS released next gen hardware that is well below par? Xbox One size gives the impression of power, but it's big for nothing...MS spent too much focus on entertainment/media 1st...and made XB1 a games console second. The icing on the cake was learning MS was paying $3 per every 1,000 views on sponsored youtube channels to not say negative things about Xbox One games?? This is buying opinions! I'm afraid my views have changed on Xbox One, I'm really disappointed.
Welcome, it's called being awoken,,. 4>1 1080p>720p 60fps>30fps Gaming focus>All in One entertainment .
PC>4 4K>1080p 120fps>60fps All in One Entertainment>Gaming Focus Time to really know where entertainment is to be had.
60fps should be the stander for this gen consoles. No questions ask. As time went on, I am sure we will start to see more 60fps games. Multiplat games on the PS4 and X1 this time will be about frame per seconds.
The funny thing is most of y'all aren't going to buy this game anyways.
