Metal Gear Solid V PS4 vs Xbox One Detailed Screenshot Comparison: PS4 is the Clear Winner

The trailer provided by Kojima productions to compare the different versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes doesn't do a very good job at actually comparing PS4 and Xbox One, showing them just side by side or in sequence. This screenshot comparison helps seeing the difference a lot better. (Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, PS4, Xbox One)

Update Updated with news about why the PS4 version shows no clouds. It is the only one that has a dynamic atmospheric simulation, so the clip was taken when there were no clouds in the sky. But it *will* have clouds.

Do we really need comparisons from 10 different websites? Everybody knows the PS4 looks better by now.
Abriael  +   721d ago
This is a completely different comparison, made partly with different shots, and shows the difference a lot better with the GIFS. Putting the shots side by side o in sequence with a big time difference doesn't do a good job in showing any difference at all.

Having shots switching quickly put the differences in a much easier light to detect for the brain and eye. Just click on the animated GIFs and you'll see that there's a world of difference that the video didn't even get close to show.

If you tell me you can see the difference clearly in this without the help of the animated GIF, I'll commend your eyesight and short term visual memory with all my heart.

So what you are saying is that when you watch the trailers you can't tell the difference?

Sounds about right...
Abriael  +   721d ago
@alexkoepp: definitely not nearly as well then by watching still switch lined up with pixel precision.

The shots in the trailer aren't even lined up well in order to make comparing PS4 and Xbox One harder.
ElementX  +   721d ago
You posted yet another comparison from your DS website the other day comparing the different platforms and yet you couldn't even show the same screens for PS4 and Xbox One. Why didn't you just wait until you could get the same screens and write up one article instead of two or more? It's like you keep writing about the same things over and over because there's no news.
Eonjay  +   721d ago
Yeah the GIF does really drive the point home. Now with the news of dynamic weather...
Abriael  +   721d ago
@ElementX: that comparison was mostly between PS3 and PS4 and between Xbox One and Xbox 360, the shots between PS4 and Xbox One were just a bonus and didn't have nearly the level of precision as this.

We report what we see. At that time direct comparison shots between PS4 and Xbox One weren't available. Now they are. You seem angry for some reason.

@ Lukas. You have to consider a couple of things here. 1. Kojima is a Sony dev so I'm sure he was more concerned with the ps3/ps4 versions more.
2. Kojima probably feels bad he sold out the Sony fans for some MS money so his way of showing his loyalty is by making the Sony versions look better.
3. The ps4 is more powerful and easier to dev for. I think games wil
Def. look better than they do now on xb1 down the road.

I also think both the ps4 and xb1 versions look great. I'm gonna pick up this game day 1.

The only difference I see is that the one which appears on screenshots where PS4 screenies are DOWNscaled, while XBO UPscaled, which leads to obvious blur in case of the latter(pixel multiplication).
When both images are DOWNscaled, game looks pretty much identical on those screenshots.
Mystogan  +   721d ago
PS4 version looks slightly better. Not "OMG I need to buy it on PS4" better. This story will continue for the rest of the generation. Unless Microsoft finally comes out with their cloud tech to improve graphics.

Resolution doesn't make a whole lot of difference as much as the PSfanboys would like it.

The X1 version looks closer to the 360 version than the PS4. The PS4 clearly stands alone in this comparison.
morganfell  +   721d ago
Here is a serious comparison for you. Guess which is which:

And look at this shot. What happened to the guard? Was he sleeping in the other versions?


Brutally, just look at Mystogan's adult comments. He remarks how the PlayStation Move Sucks - yes that is the mature descriptive he uses, attacks PS3 titles wherever he can, and he talks a great deal in his post history about graphics. For someone that now claims resolution does not matter, it was certainly of enough importance in the past. The past being where he said the 360 would pass the Wii of course.

And just to clarify now he also bragged endlessly about 360 sales.

There are numerous other posts where his chest thumping ended in utter defeat as the 360 now sits in 3rd place and is falling ever further behind the PS3. So much for his short lived triumph. I can only imagine his rage over the sales of the current gen. I mean there were more posts talking utter crap over sales than I could count.

He is also one of the world's biggest promoters of Kinect. Look how that helped this generation. Ooops.

And the last time I checked the 360 was in last place.

This. PS4 is hands down the better looking game, but you will never have someone playing on the X1 complain about graphics. I'd say imo it looks about 20% better. And jesus I almost forgot to say I've got a PS4, that was a close one
HiddenMission  +   721d ago
@Abrial looked at the link you provided and it's very clear that the Xboxone version is very muddy texture wise compared the PS4 version.

The video actually from Konami seals the deal the versions from worst to best are as follows:

360, PS3, XB1, PS4

...remember I didn't make the video but I do have eyes Konami simply pointed out how much better 1080p versus 720p is.

Those who say they look the same need to hit up the eye doctor or at the least stay off the f***ing road because...they're blind as shit!

I heartily agree. What is occurring now and will occur for the rest of this generation, or at least until the Xbox Division is sold off has been earned a hundred times over. Every post attacking Sony supporters and poking fun at them relentlessly for years has reserved for those same people the current and coming nightmare.

They asked for this. They paid for it and it is only fair they should recieve that for which they repeatedly asked. Their own actions made it patently clear this is how one should respond to competitors.

It is laughable that they continued unabated for almost the whole of the last generation and here they are not even a year into this new hardware era and they are screaming for Sony supporters as well as impartial gamers to please please stop.

No. It will not stop. The gap will grow. PlayStation Now will make facets other than resolution and horsepower alone simply unbearable.

It will not cease and no quarter shall be given.

Actually when PS3 first launched multi-plats looked better on 360. Eventually multi-plats PS3 started looking just as good if not better (depending on the developer). GTA IV on the 360 had better resolution (upscaled) but PS3 version typically had more pedestrians on the street/vehicles. GTA V performed better on the PS3 and looked better on the PS3. Some foilage on the 360 looked better than the PS3 one though.

I remember IGN or GameInformer saying that COD MW had better something on PS3 vs better something else on 360. Dragons Dogma looked better and performed better on PS3 (overall). On PS3 it had 3-5FPS less on average but it had much less screen tearing than the 360 version.

The list goes on to be honest. Only towards the beginning of the PS3 did the multiplatform games suffer. Except from developers that never learned to use the Cell correctly.

ANother example:

MGS Rising: was better on PS3.

No one is saying there were not multiplat titles that looked better on the PS3. Certainly there were. However often they looked better on the 360. Usually the margin was extremely narrow if it existed at all. There were some bad cases such as Bayonetta but those was hardly the norm.

But you would never have known it from the stories posted here.

Your join date is Nov 2013. Maybe you visited here before that and were ghosting. It didn't matter if some games looked better on the PS3 or that exclusives on the PS3 were unmatched by the 360 in the true horsepower department. The "PS3 is teh doomed" bashing was unabated and unchecked. And it was party chat this and party chat that as if party chat was more important than the game itself.

Several times every story on the main page was about the demise of Sony, the death of the PS3, should Sony get out of the business. It was relentless. And it went on for years. PS3 fans were sick of it but we knew what the numbers were telling us. The worldwide numbers.

NPD figures and that fake crap from vgchartz, always heavily slanted toward MS were used to punch Sony supporters non-stop. Never mind that in the world the PS3 was advancing on the 360 like a silent predator. And yes at the end of the day the PS3 has crushed the 360.

We also realized in February if most of Sony's own developers were unaware of the PS4 possessing 8Gb of Ram then certainly MS was about to be checked at the boards. And they were.

That matters not. It was years of non-stop crap from quite a few members of this site and now they are getting fed their comeuppance with a bucket loader.

When you have a 60" t.v. Resolution DOES matter, and it makes a BIG difference. True 1080p is much easier on the eyes when you look at it on a television as big as mine, and with 4K televisions sliding into the market, (The minimum size being roughly 55" on those televisions) It's definitely gonna make the Xbone look even more last-gen than before.
ovnipc  +   721d ago
Its no denial that the PS4 version it wayy superior than all the others. Xbox one version its like a 20% increase from last gen when PS4 its like a 60% increase quality the lightning looks amazing. PS4 version for me. But the game its so short that I may rent it.

Not that I disagree with you, but my issue with the video is that they show the ps4 with these great backdrop pieces, at night in the rain to show the great lighting. But then the x1/360 comparison was of a fence and some mud and stupid stuff. When they did the running/f's speed slow down, that scene looked identical between ps4 and x1.
HiddenMission  +   721d ago
@TheDrunkenJester you good sir need glasses. In no shot did the PS4 version and XB1 version look the same.

Don't believe what the morons at Kotaku said. Kojima and his representatives stated that what Kotaku said were complete lies about the length of the game. Those idiots just like to make drama and try to look important when all they are are a bunch of hacks.
TheDrunkenJester  +   720d ago
@Hidden yes I have a full hd 1080p 3d blah blah why does everyone think that you don't have a nice TV if you can't tell the difference? The difference is minuscule because the game isn't even that great looking. If he could get the ps3/360 to look that good I bet they could have got the x1 to 1080 or at least 900. The fact is kojima/konami/mgs had always been a Sony product and this is the first fully developed multiplat MGS, so I'm sure they are keeping the Sony version the top dog. I'm a huge MGS fan and I'm not putting down the game or ps4 (because I always buy play stations for the exclusives obviously) but I think they could have tried harder on the x1 and got at least 900p.

My main point though is the resolution is hardly a big deal, but people want to nit pick about everything.
ITPython  +   721d ago
Wonder if these comparison shots were taken before or after the removal of the sharpening filter for the XB1.

I would assume yes, because the XB1 shots are quite blurry compared to the crystal clear and sharp PS4 shots. I mean that last shot of the warning sign, my goodness!... lol, a bit of XB1 foreshadowing going on with that picture. WARNING is absolutely correct.

You can clearly see that the PS4 version is alot clearer if you do a side by side. But, I highly doubt that Xbox One gamers will lose sleep over it. I've always gotten MGS on Sony Machines and that is the way it's gonna stay. But going multi-plat means that more people can fall in love with the franchise and that is great in my book.

Xbox fans seriously need to stop with the crap of it doesn't matter and game play. They spent 6 yrs preaching how Exclusives didn't really matter since Multi plats were the best sellers. They oved the missing grass on a game and chose to run it in every minute.

Now They have some Exclusives and now its all about exclusives. Now they lose Comparisons so now it doesn't matter its all about Gameplay.

Please refresh me... when was the last time you made a multiplatform game? Never you say? Well that's a pretty bold statement coming from someone that has absolutely no experience in developing games.

He had 2 next gen systems to work with. He pushed the game as far as he could on the ps4 and had room to spare. With the xbone, you can only work with what you have. So that's why you are left with the inferior product. Not because of the developer, but because of MS. You wanna blame someone? Blame the stupid company that designed the console to be the inferior next gen system. Jeez...

Show me a statement made by Kojima or one of his staff where they officially say that they didn't care for the xbone so they put as little effort into it as possible, then I'll agree with you. Till then how about you do what the rest of the normal gamers do and appreciate the wonderful games he makes instead of making excuses for MS.

"Yes, everyone expected the PS4 version to look the best"

you dont anyhow quote people on such a statement you made up yourself. This statement alone show how much of a fanboy you are. I for one never expect PS4 to look the best. You only show yourself a butthurt for not being able to accept when the truth is being shown. Kojima is well known for making the best use of hardware all these time. You can go back and look at the history on every games he made be it on a portable or console. He is one of those who tend to push limit on hardware. Unless the game is being outsourced, then it might be a debatable situation. As long as the game is developed in house, from the hardware use standpoint he have hardly fail to deliver in that aspect.

"For me, Kojima looks like just another lazy developer trying to make a quick buck with a crap port. If I had a X1, I would never purchase this game."

Then be my guest. In the first place no one force you to get a X1. And if you choose to buy a X1 then live with your choice. Be more logical rather than being such a fanboy. Every dev and publisher out there are out to make money from what they make. So go use your smartass brain and think about it. Why would they want to purposely shit on a platform to make sure it does not sell. That only hurt their reputation, it also hurt their sales which end of the day is all about MONEY. And that is what they are all aftering. Especially on a game such a MGS? So learn to use some logic before you pray on your all mighty X1 simply because Penello tell you that the hardware hardly have any difference. While you choose to believe that and think that a dev especially someone like Kojima is taking a pissed on you. Seriously even if you use some sense and logic and look from the actual hardware spec perspective they do indeed have differences where clearly PS4 does have upper hand in that aspect. This is another thing that clearly show you are again butthurting.

You know that MGS have been using all-engine scene since ever.
It's very rare to have in game CG trailers in MG games.

This is old...even IF you can tell a difference, it's not enough to brag's just looking pathetic now. All this resolution talk just looks to be trying to distract from game news...

ok nothing to brag about. i bet you will buy the 360 version over the x1 version even if you own both consoles since it is not enough to brag about. /sarcasm

1. You can tell the difference between 720p, and 1080p.

2. The downplaying resolution talk is getting tiring, and hypocritical since all last gen, resolution is all you people ever talked about.
gameslayer2411  +   721d ago
Granted the comparison is a bit silly since they have the same gameplay BUT the ps4 being the only one with dynamic weather is a big question in my mind? I wonder if they will explain that or if anyone knows can they say?
jessupj  +   721d ago
If you can't imediately tell the difference from just a casual glance at this you must be extremely visually impaired.

I know the constant barrage of resolutiongate articles must be getting a little annoying at this point, but coming in here full of denial is not the way the handle it.

You picked the xbone and now you need to deal with the consequences of that decision. You knew dam well what the specs were well before your purchase. You could of choose the superior PS4, but you didn't. It's your own fault, no one was forcing you to buy an xbone so stop complaining.

BTW it's not to late to try to sell your xbone for a loss and get a PS4. Come join us brother. You won't regret it.

imo the xbx 360 and ps3 versions look really good compared to the next gen versions and it shouldnt be that way, in fact it seems the next gen ports are just enhanced versions of the ps3 and x360 versions. its obvious the new consoles weren't maximized.


my thoughts exactly. if you want to make a game on last/next gen then do it properly and focus on the strengths of each hardware,don't just make it shinier, increase the res and call it next gen.

imo these games aint offering enough to justify a purchase on next gen hardware.

You're wrong. Only PS4 version has significantly improved AA. Can't say the same for Xone/last gen (basically the same)

"significantly improved aa and a next gen port being almost identical to last gen port"

dude you just proved my point. i aint saying its a bad looking game , what im saying is the last gen versions look almost as good as the next gen versions which clearly wouldn't be had he put in more effort.

next gen versions should have significant upgrades and not just better aa and lighting.

but if in your opinion these minor upgrades are good enough to justify a next gen purchase then pls go ahead. i'm just stating my opinion.


my point exactly.

I agree. Xbox One version of MGS looks similar to Xbox 360/PS3 except for 60 FPS.

PS4 version though...Kills all versions and has atmosphere simulation (exclusive to PS4) plus also running at 60 FPS.

Sometimes it's not just about eye candy, but also performance. 60 FPS>30 FPS.

PS4>XBO=PS3/360 (except FPS)

There's noting wrong with scaling to hardware. It's exactly what gaming PC's do. It makes no sense for Kojima to make 4 different versions at $30 million each ($120m). At best we could have hoped for a next-gen version and a last-gen versions then port to the other console ($80m). But business wise it makes the most sense to scale up from the LCD (PS360) and upscale according ($60m).

It's all about the money and more than likely they scaled up from the PS3 considering they have the most experience with that platform. And when it comes to scaling it's all about the hardware, and the fact of the matter is the PS4 can render the same scene as the XBO 2x as fast.

The "next-gen" ports (aka upscaled) are 60fps, have better textures, better lightning, and better AA. These are coming things that are improved when scaling to different PC hardware, and seems to be the same thing they did when making this game for the new consoles.

The problem then goes back to the XBO's hardware. GDDR5 is significantly better at texture streaming than DDR3. High quality texture attack graphics RAM first, which is why most GPUs are recommended to have at least 2GB of GDDR5 for mid -> high end PC gaming. The XBO has no GDDR5, and has to use DDR3 instead and it's a poor substitute. Textures on the XBO are going to be worse than the PS4 versions of games for a long time because of it. The blurriness is also a complaint with Resolution, but that alone isn't causing that amount of blur which leads me to believe the not only does the PS4 version has a higher resolution, but it's also using a better Anti Aliasing (probably MSAA PS4 vs. FXAA XBO).

The XBO's weak points are showing in this, but that being said I don't think it should be as much of a difference being shown here, and it seems like the PS4 version is getting all the love. But on the flip side MGS didn't sell at all on the 360.
arugula  +   721d ago
This is why i dont buy new consoles within the first year. PS3 and PS4 is little difference. The PS4 may have better lighting but the textures are very similar. I will still def pick this up but not until the potential of the PS4 is realized and im buying true next gen games.

seriously its gonna be a great prologue to an amazing game...the ps4 version does look better but does it really matter...if there was a pc would destroy these next gen version...what really matters is if its worth the price???
Eonjay  +   721d ago
You have a point. I think given that each the Xbox One and PS4 version cost the same amount of money, there is more value in the PS4 version. If there was a PC version for the same price, it could definitely be argued that he PC version had more value. After all its the same experience.

I was planning to play MGS5 Phantom Pain on Ps4 anyway, even though at the moment I only have an Xbone. Even if they looked identical I'd still play on PS4 just because I have the entire MGS collection on PS platforms, obviously. But I do agree having a comparison video for every game that comes out is getting tired. We get it. This video does prove though that no matter where you play it, even last gen, it looks damn good.
WizzroSupreme  +   721d ago
The picture above is probably the worst piece of proof for their being a "clear" graphical winner here. If anything it's a slim one, and certainly not something obvious enough that I'm going to notice it while playing.
bleedsoe9mm  +   721d ago
my thoughts exactly however i would add if i was making a choice between them in the next year or so the price difference vs games i'm interested in would be the only factor . in other words 3rd party games aren't going to be a tipping point for xbox this gen they are going to need to bring the must have console exclusives

Lets forget about slight graphical differences. The ps4 version is the only one capable of simulation of weather within the game while allegedly running the game at higher res and with better overall effects!!
I think that alone says a lot about the power of the two consoles!

I think its a little disengenuous to say that resolution doesn't matter and to also lable anyone who does care as a fanboy.

For me, if the gameplay and mechanics etc are the same in both versions however one has a better performance and/or is visually more impressive then that it the version I want to play - everytime!

It doesnt make me a fanboy, and you better beleive that if the roles were reversed and the XB1 was outperforming that would be the console sat under my TV at present.

If I were a XB1 owner, at this stage I would be very concerned as we are so early in the life cycle of the generation and I think the game will only broaden over time and I know for sure that I would be trading in while the machine is still worth a decent amount second hand.

I actually kind of agree. On one hand consumers need to know if a game runs better on one console than the other. On the other hand, everybody really ought to know by now that games run better on the PS4, so this just feels like piling on.

as far as im concerned its over, sure you will pump your chest for a year or two then dissapear, on the other hand there is a way out for you!!!! come back to playstation :)

I disagree because the main issue is the GPU itself...even if you took Kinect away, there'd still be a performance deficit.

Some of the images I thought the PS4 looked better, some the Xbox One. This is just like last gen all over. The differences between the two are so insignificant that it just highlights how stupid these fanboy console wars are.

I bought the PS4 at launch, then picked a Xbox One up later. I own both horses in the race so I don't have kid myself that one is winning by a mile when in reality they are neck and neck. Enjoying both is much better than constantly hating one. I dont care which side of the fence it comes from, the petty biased fanboy nonsense is a drag on gaming.
Philoctetes  +   721d ago
None of the images look better on the xbone. The xbone versions all have objectively worse textures, blurrier images overall, and more aliasing.
MasterCornholio  +   721d ago
OMG i just saw this on my 1080P monitor (before i was on my tablet)

The differences are huge. I cant believe how blurry the Xbox One version looks compared to the PS4 version.

Why are you all keep banging on about this. People have bought their consoles & are happy. Do you think if you keep banging on they will suddenly stop playing their Xbox's. Let's put it another way, if these Xbox owners are so concerned they could sell their Xbox Ones, lose £100 by selling on eBay yet still have enough left over for a PS4. But they are happy enough, so leave it, it's getting dull.
