Tomb Raider is “definitive” on PlayStation 4 rather than Xbox One with game changing use of controller lights, speaker, Vita remote play and all this at 60 frames per second.
Up to 60 fps, remote play and an extra $100 in my pocket, not bad
I know I'll get a bunch of disagrees for this, but... "Up to 60 fps, remote play and an extra $100 in my pocket, not bad" Considering you need a Vita to make use of remote play, wouldn't it be $100 less in your pocket? I mean, you do need to spend $200 more dollars to make use of the remote play feature, which is obviously more than the Xbox One.
Playing TR while i sit on the toilet.... ......Priceless Xo
ive had a vita since launch, so i would not count that as an extra expense in my case.
I'm guessing he bought a Vita way back, thusly he didn't add it to the cost of the console. I could be wrong, though...
It's 100$ more and 1 extra device....so it's worth it:) it opens up new opportunities! We'll prob see ps4/vita bundles for 500$ in the future, or for 549.99. I agree though, the xbox one could have reduced resolution to achieve 60 fps, I think it would have been a good trade off:)
@ GryestOfBluSkies and MightyNoX My comment was directed at the fact that it was needlessly negative towards the Xbox One. I don't own one or even like Xbox (or M$ for that matter...), but I still dislike when people make ignorant comments like that. If you want to attack the system, then use facts. Not like there aren't plenty of those laying around...
AAA Games while taking a fluffy sh!t is one special moment just for you
Its definitive because its the best version and its on the best gaming system on earth PlayStation now PlayStation is the future PlayStation forever
apparently people disagree with maths....
This game is last gen so i dont care how great or bad it runs on any console. Remote play is pretty much useless. I mean seriously, there is zero reason to stream to the PS Vita when you can not be more than 5 yards away from your PS4 to make it work properly. And as mentioned, you will be $100 out of pocket when you start playing on the Vita. Wait until tiled resources becomes industry standard for upcoming and future games later this year and forever more. Consoles that run ports of existing games using yesterdays technology means nothing in performance tests. The XB1 architecture with lower latency DDR3 RAM and it's ESRAM buffer destroys the off the shelf PS4 hardware for performance and efficiency for upcoming use of TR.
Wow, your last sentence is one of the most nonsensical (sucks not to be able to use the word I'm thinking of) comments I've seen from a blindfolded one bubble guy.
Sometimes I wish I was young again but then I read posts like this and thank the Lord I'm old. So misinformed and so out of the loop.
This could quite possibly be the silliest comment ever posted.
@dsswhoosh "Remote play is pretty much useless. I mean seriously, there is zero reason to stream to the PS Vita when you can not be more than 5 yards away from your PS4 to make it work properly." Do your research before posting total uninformed fanboy garbage, the Vita can be used on a local wireless network with hardly any noticeable lag to stream games, it does not require the user to be 5 feet yards from the PS4.
this argument is stupid... in reality you never get to play the definitive version because PC gets the game at 60+ fps at 4K
60fps is gravy enough for me.
Please tell me the DS4's speaker works better than Wii's. If not...
Then you can always enjoy the superior framerate. :)
It does... And it's actually surprising how good the audio quality is... The first time I picked up an audio log in Killzone and it started playing through the controller I was shocked... Sony really did a great job with it.
@ron i hope outlast uses the speaker....
I agree. First time I heard it was in killzone. Startled me abit lol
Very true. I was a little stunned myself when the audio started to play. :D
The controller is so good, adds so much to a game. Love that it lights up a bit when you fire your gun, and shows your health status and stuff.
Remote play is enough of a reason to buy all my multiplatform games on PS4. Everything else is icing on the Cake.
About that ListenMode (TLOU) vs SurvivalInstinct (TR) So he thinks, ND waited till March, watched some TR gameplay, noticed that SurvivalInstinct and THEN decided to implement such a crucial mechanic 2 month before the release of their game ? That's NONSENSE. Anyway...
One major reason is because Ps4 is the real true next gen console available 2day
yes if you ignore this other platform that can play the game in better than 1080p 60 fps with tessellation and motion blur not set to low.
With outdated textures and assets that were replaced in this version.
what textures and assets? there's a new face and vegetation model and that's pretty much it, the texture resolution is higher on PC from DF: "That said, the extra crispness and clarity available on the PC game due to higher-resolution assets and better filtering are a big draw for the platform" "Does the much cheaper PC version of the game feature all the non-Lara based enhancements found in the Definitive Edition? Well, no. However, some seriously impressive effects found in the PC game - like tessellation, for example - are nowhere to be found on next-gen console."
^ The video wasn't just referring to the resolution, fps, graphics, or I would agree with you. He made other points about the ps4's version being superior for gameplay.
There's just no way ps4 can run the pc version with all the eye candy options set to max (tressfx,tesselation,motion blur,ambient occlusion) with the same texture quality and filtering. But looking at the disagrees from your post many people here do think that lol
I got an Xbox One and the ps4 version is the only one worth buying from what I read. Why would I repurchase a game just because it looks a little prettier but it runs the sames fps As The Previous gen. The remote play function with the vita is pretty cool too. I'm not jumping ship from my console of choice but got to be honest when something isn't up to par with my expectations.
Literally, two weeks ago everyone was bombing this game because it was last Gen, waste of money, etc... Hits more FPS on PS4 than X1,and it's everyone favorite topic again. By the way, you have to watch the game in slow motion to see the difference in frame rate, as proven by the article yesterday. Plus, your PS4 now cost more money than my X1 to use remote play ($400 ps4, $200 Vita = more than x1) So cost is everything this generation until it's a ps4 cost... By the way, I have a Vita, it's never used, and the only thing I I'll use it for is when I eventually do have a ps4. But honestly, I do want the graphical capabilities of the ps4,but after spending some time on n4g and seeing how the ps4 community is, I might just have to pass. The experience also counts, not just graphics and exclusives.
What? You don't have to buy a Vita or use remote play. The Vita isn't a part of the PS4. The PS4 is a $400 system, it's cheaper than Microsoft's $500 system.
So? You'll still have to buy something extra to use remote play on xbox. Everyone knows that the vita is the best device for remote play. Sorry meant second screen on xbox cus it can't do remote play.
If you can't tell the difference between 60 fps and 30 you need your eyes checked. 30 fps is mainly used in Movies, this is becuase the lower the frame rate, the hard your eyes need to work to make the moving pictures connected. So the higher the frame rate, the more fluid it will appear and the less your eyes need to strain. The reason they do that in movies is so you focus more on what your seeing. Games do not benefit from it unless it's a QTE only game, or like Walking dead....even then I personally would rather have 60 fps. If you have a Vita and never use it, then it was clearly the wrong console for you. I use my vita almost once a day, and I have 100+ hours in Persona 4 and countless hours in other games. I actually played it more than my 3Ds...but that's mainly beccause I'm a trophy whore. Either way, Vita + PS4 = 600 yes, that's 100$ more for an extra console, and extra screen and extra controller. Not just a camera that detected motion....so don't comapre that. 500 = Console + camera/mic 600 = 2 Consoles (1 portable 1 home) + camera/controller/2nd screen/Remote play. Thank you. P.S If you choose your systems based on communities of what people are saying on N4G, your not a gamer...your like a person looking for a Religion/Cult. Who says that? Seriously..."Oh PS4/Xbox people on N4G are jerks, so i'll go on the other team even if I don't really know what I'm talking about or the games it has...derpy derpy derpy derp". Pathetic.
It's about cost + quality, not just cost..
You can not use N4G as a example of any systems community.There are MILLIONS of people out there on those systems.There are not millions on N4G.N4G is its own community and does not represent anything other then N4G.
Finally going off the deep end, eh? Well... no... I guess you've been there since the start. Nobody was bombing the game two weeks ago. And no, you DON'T have to watch the game in slow motion to see the difference in framerate. There's a noticeable difference between 60fps and 30fps at speed. That's just a convenient excuse you've come up with because the video slowed things down to make the difference more pronounced. But I guess comprehension of such things is a little beyond you right now. Why add in the cost of the Vita? Grasping at straws? Yeah, you're grasping. Did you grab any? Looks like you missed, honestly. You have a Vita? Doubt it. As far as communities and experience go... if I based my expectation of the Xbox community on the Xbox fans here... I'd be ready to justify mass murder. The delusional, braindead, blind as three mice comments coming from the majority of the Xbox crowd would be indicative of a group that should not be allowed to procreate. Fortunately- even though I know an individual or two in real life who isn't far from it- I know most Xbox fans are not as off their rocker as the posters here are.
At what point does he start talking about the "5 reasons" and the definitive version???? I've watched 5minutes, and all he's done is rave about details within the game - details that were present in the lastgen version.... (I eventually got there)
All that's great, but not $60 great. Especially if you've already played it last gen. If you've never played then its a good deal.
Why is no one bored off these articles yet?. I get it looks better etc but where does it add anything more to the game you have already played and beating. Why does that make it worth paying full price for the game again on what ever console you choice to play it be it the PS4 edition be the better version in this case. I've already completed this on PC with everything set to the highest settings and got threw the game with a great deal off satisfaction. I didn't buy he game on release i instead waited for a good deal on it and picked it up for under £20. I see no reason to be paying all that money for this game. Hell don't get me wrong its good but for anyone that's completed it on ps3 xbox360 already. Your only rush buying atm because the next gen is still early days. The games haven't hit the shelves yet give it a year and you will question yourself as well. New Uncharted games etc will soon hit and TR will be a true last gen game people won't talk about anymore. Atm its just point scoring and costly at that aswell.
Pc no blur great head , more resolution options and blood effects as well as frames to your hearts content.
I may give it a try, on PS4 of course.
No arguments from me on this article. My only complaint is the severe delay in audio output between the TV's speakers and the controller's speaker when listening to an audio log. Maybe I am the only one experiencing this but it makes me want to turn the controller's sound off.
