Metal Gear Solid 5 Ground Zeroes: PS4 Versus Xbox One Head To Head Screenshot Comparison

"Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is finally available for North America players across current and next gen platforms, but we've known for a good solid month now that it's the Xbox One and PS4 versions that fully realize Hideo Kojima's open world vision."

The PS4 version of metal gear 5 has better dark shadows than the x1's version.

Don't know why we need more comparisons. Everybody knows the PS4 version is superior.
christian hour  +   318d ago
Plus Konami, being very transparent about their games, which i foudn unusual for a big publisher (Ubisoft, take note!)released their own comparison comparing all 4 platforms.

This is all you need to see


PS3/360/XBONE are very similar, with xbone coming out on top with higher resolution textures etc and better shadows and AA.

PS4 is above and beyond all 3, its the only version touting a dynamic sky box, however I dont see why the xbone does not have this feature at all, even though its hardware is slightly weaker than the ps4's, theres enough under the hood it should be able to do this.

Hopefully by the time MGS5 comes around they'll have figured it out and xbone people can get that nice pretty, supposedly Dynamic, sky.

Either way regardless of what platform you buy this game on you're going to have hours of enjoyment, Kojima Productions did a bang up job on making this game look beautiful on all platforms, even the 360/ps3 versions look fantastic despite being on extremely dated tech at this point in time.

We need to rub it in. We still got like 6-7 years of doing this to pay back those bros who always use to brag about a tenth of pixel that was missing from the PS3 versions last time around.
Gaming101  +   318d ago
It isn't just the darker shadows, it's the more advanced lighting, higher resolution textures and lighting on each individual object. It's also the higher and steadier framerate. We DO need comparisons like these, as not everyone is schooled in the differences of each version. I always hear X-bone fans clamoring about how the differences aren't anything noticeable in a feeble attempt to justify their fanboy attitudes.
Gekko36  +   317d ago
@all This is ridiculous!. I can't tell the difference between the screenshots. I've got good eye sight and there is no difference I can see.

I think this is like some pompous art lover seeing something in a painting where 99% of the population seeing nothing but a painting of dogs playing cards.

Dumb article and dumb comments!

cozomel  +   317d ago

Damn, dude, seriously? you still cant tell after looking at those 2 pics? Damn, click on them to make them bigger then flick back and forth between them, Its clear as day. The PS4 is sharper and has better textures and more rocks, plus its also got dynamic sky whereas the XO ver. doesnt. You may have soemthing wrong with your eyes
badz149  +   318d ago
I'm scratching my head too over this comparison. The xbone's version is not even on the technical level of the PS4 version and which version would looks best is already decided before the comparison even made. It's like comparing multiplats on PS3/360 vs PC version which is also a waste of time because there already is a clear winner.

So what does this comparison suppose to do? Just for the sake of rubbing it on the xbone's face or trying to deceive people into thinking that the xbone version looks comparable despite the low res?
shinrock  +   318d ago

I agree with you.

"So what does this comparison suppose to do? Just for the sake of rubbing it on the xbone's face or trying to deceive people into thinking that the xbone version looks comparable despite the low res?"

These screen shots where carefully selected to show there is no difference between the 2. I can't see any difference in them. For the record maybe you and others can see it. I think if you put them side by side and remove the PS4, Xbox One title most people would not see the difference. Someone above also said the PS4 has better shadows. I took another look just to see that and I didn't. But there were really no good screen shots to highlight that. With all that said if they added the Xb360 and PS3 screen shots some people would not see enough difference to call the PS4 screen shots better. IMO.
DemonChicken  +   318d ago
I am no techie but I like to raise the question of why is the shots of both the PS4 and X1 at 1920 x 980 dimension (I just clicked on screens, zoomed in, right click, save and checked the properties of pic)?

At least the screens are .png (lossless). But kind of questioning this and where the shots came from as if it was me I would take actual shots of the game running on their respective consoles.
dantesparda  +   318d ago

PS4: http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co...

X1: http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co...

Seriously, you cant tell that the PS4 version looks sharper? its also missing stones on the X1 version and also has lower res textures. And this is with res truncated pics like DemonChicken said. So its not even showing the full res, which benefits the X1.

Every website, unless it was run by fanatics has acknowledged there is no question the PS4 version is on a different level than the X1 version. Then I read this:

"These screen shots where carefully selected to show there is no difference between the 2."

Do you know what an agenda is? Because I smell one and you are giving your website a huge black eye. Can you say BIAS?

Dependability rating? Absolutely zero.

I don't think you realize the impact of what you wrote. It reads like someone in a desperate situation willing to subvert the truth to support a platform.

I don't think anyone is going to want to pay your site the least bit of heed from now on and that includes not giving a click. When this hits a place like Gaf I would say you are sunk because they'll be all over this.

If I were you I would look for two knobs. One says, "DAMAGE CONTROL IGNITION". If that one fails find the one that says "EJECT".

My goodness, this specific screenshot show the biggest difference between the two:

PS4 - http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co...

XB1 - http://gamingbolt.com/wp-co...

XB1 version is significantly blurrier (looks like a last-gen game in that screenshot), and if you switch back and fourth you see that the PS4 version also has more things laying around on the ground, and has more plants, cactus etc.

If they didn't accidentally use the 360 for that screenshot, then the XB1 version might as well be a last-gen game. Because it looks absolutely terrible.
Aloren  +   317d ago
XB1 is significantly blurrier indeed... but what strikes me the most in this screenshot is how terrible it looks even on PS4, I'm glad I saw gameplay footage, cause based on this screen alone, I'd say the game looks terrible.

Sure, if you don't consider a difference in res (1080p vs 720p) to be anything but "slight".

Edit: "but looking at those screens there's not much in it."

shazui_20  +   318d ago
Yeah, from a technical aspect that is a fairly huge difference but it doesn't translate to a gigantic visual difference, really. The difference I'm interested in seeing is the dynamic atmosphere simulation on the PS4 version
Fishy Fingers  +   318d ago

No, your comment post edit was centred purely round the use of the word "slight" which as I said is Kojimas words. Now you've edited your post to try and pick fault in my comment. I'm here to read about games, not play games. I'm getting it on the PS4 regardless so I'm not interested in making a big deal out of something that has little to no impact on me.

@ Fishy: If it's no big deal to you, stop replying to it, then. Problem solved. :)

And, btw, I know what Kojima said, but if you're backing his words, then you're supporting the content, which, again, was what I replied to, no matter how pedantic you want to be about it.

He was hardly gonna alienate Xbox fans by stating their version is much worse even if it was so the words don't really matter, however I do have eyes and yup the difference is minimal yet at the same time noticeable
Fishy Fingers  +   318d ago
I'm not here to psychoanalyse the agenda behind his wording, I merely stated it as in an article comparing versions of his game his opinion is probably the one that carries the most weight.
nucky64  +   318d ago
fishy, if those screens above are indicitive of the game - the ps4 version looks much cleaner and lifelike compared to the x1 version. you must not be looking at those pics to say "there's not much in it".also, what carries "weight" with me is how the game looks - and that ps4 shot above looks stunning.
and no - i don't own a ps4 or x1 yet - but i'm leaning ps4 when i see screen comparisons like the ones the poster above showed.

Not as big a difference as I would've expected as both look pretty good.
PS4 looks to have darker colors and higher resolution compared to the Xbone version.
Cryptcuzz  +   318d ago
Its not only the resolution that is better on the PS4.
Look at the two screenshots posted above by members like BattleTorn.

It clearly shows better anti-aliasing, sharper images overall, better textures, and even rocks/cactus are missing from the Xbox One version.

That and the fact that the PS4 version is the only one with dynamic sky, whereas the other versions is a static sky. Plus, I found the use of the DualShock4 built-in speakers to be quite a neat feature that does not get talked about much.

If all that is apparent with just one screenshot, imagine the overall differences throughout the whole game.

Either way, I am sure the game is enjoyable on all versions, but if anyone who has a PS4 or plan on getting a PS4, I suggest getting the PS4 version for all the reasons listed above.
filipakos  +   318d ago
The last 2 pictures was what revealed the true differences.Its like day and night :P
tucky  +   318d ago
Pfff, you would remove the labels on top of the pictures and sure it would be a hell to identity which image is from which platform. Olala fanboys nowadays.... Such a pain !!!!
By the way , where do you live ?... A country where you have no differences between day and night :-)
filipakos  +   318d ago
The day and night was joke because it is ACTUALLY day on one picture and night on the other.
If you cant see with your own eyes how much more detailed the ground,rocks etc is on ps4 or even the lightning then you are a blind fanboy not me.
Im a pc/ps3 gamer, i dont own a ps4 yet because its to soon to decide and also afraid of the first models but until now ps4 is the next console i buy somewhere in the future not xbox and not because of the power differences
MasterCornholio  +   318d ago
Biggest difference is in the resolution where the PS4 version looks crisp and tgs Xbox One version looks blurry.
BattleTorn  +   318d ago
And the Xbox One version is missing some serious foliage and clarity in draw distance.

That's a major issue here tbh.
Bundi  +   318d ago
You mean my ps3/x360? Because I don't own any other console. I'm not about to buy a ps4 and Xbox one has not released in my country just yet, which I still wouldn't buy because it is probably going to be too expensive.

The Xbox version of this 5 out of 10 game is missing a couple of rocks, yeah that really really sucks!

No one should be surprised. Better hardware begets better graphics. Not rocket science.

Let's just go play the game. We have been beating a dead horse for too long.

Edit: Shockingly, I see a bigger difference between the two than I thought I would based on those screenshots. The hair in the PS4 version in much more crisp. Further, the last two comparison shots really show the effects of the resolution difference.

Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!

Better OPTIMIZATION gets better graphics, RYSE looks damn good for the so called underpowered XBONE. Forza is also at 1080P 60FPS, it's not that the XBONE can't perform as well as the ps4, It all comes down to developers. So please can you Sony fanboys, Nintendo fanboys, Xbox fanboys put a sock in it?

Something is funny between that second to last 2 shots. the PS4 screen is sharp as expected but the Xbone shot is very blury and not only the terrain.. look at the Xbone HUD..its the only shot where the HUD is blurry.. did someone mess up that Xbone capture shot on purpose? the HUD looks fine and sharp on those other pics but this one.

Nobody said unplayable. Don't be so dramatic and immature. This article is a graphical comparison - and that's what we're discussing. No one is discussing playability so it's a stretch for you go even imply that in such an immature manner.

And given the option, who wouldn't play the best looking version?

The details pointed out by Studio were accurate and further the point of this article. It further exemplifies the gap between the systems based on what PS4 can render and XBone can't.

On 2nd look, the top pic looks sharper with more details on the rocks on snakes left and right. Plus the colors also looks better not washed out compared to the bottom pic (caused bybetter lightning & weather system?)

That specific set of pictures should stop being used as a reference as you can tell the XB1 pic is horribly off. The weapons display on it is a dead giveaway that that shot needs to be redone. You can tell in every other picture that the weapons display is clear to look at but that specific shot needs to be redone.
