Project CARS PS4 vs PC Maximum Settings Screenshot Comparison: Gorgeous on Both Platforms

Recently Slightly Mad Studios and Sony Computer Entertainment released a batch of screenshots of the upcoming Project CARS, that will be released on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Wii U starting this fall.

Many wondered how the PS4 version compares with the PC version, and today DualShockers tried to respond to that question, by taking screenshots of the PC version at maximum settings reproducing as closely as possible some of the PS4 screenshots.

Hope you all pick up this game as I am an investor, make me some bank!

GarrusVakarian1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

I will be giving you monies.

Damn, the PS4 version holds up better than i thought it would, really impressive work from Slightly Mad given the PS4's specs and price. Really looking forward to this.

Dee_911202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

Yea I was planning on getting the PC version, because I didn't believe SM when they said the PS4 version would be up to par with the pc version to be honest haha... Then again, if the modding community will be like assetto corsa, I might get it for pc and ps4 later.

@Letros will we see an opponent named after you ? lol

Monaco looks awesome!

mikeslemonade1202d ago

So if I were to build a PC with the GTX780 it would atleast be $800-$900. So i don't see a $400 or more difference here. Even though I will be building a PC this fall, the self proclaimed master race has been just spewing numbers but you don't give me pictures like this.

But anyway I don't like racing games so I won't be getting this game anyway.

Aleithian1202d ago

Agreed. This console keeps paying for itself with every new game released.

ShinMaster1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

Most of these screenshots were taken in different weather conditions, angles and lighting. It doesn't make for an accurate comparison.

I'll be getting it on PS4. I got a friend who'll get it on PC, but won't be able to max it out.

nosferatuzodd1201d ago

sweet the ps4 is holding its own dam im impress

mattdillahunty1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

is the PS4 version going to be 60fps as well? if so, then that's pretty impressive with screenshots like those. if it's just 30fps, then meh. hopefully it's the former, though.

Honestly, if you at least a GTX 780. I don't see why you wouldn't get it on PC unless your community is in PSN/XBL. Great job being able to pull this much off with locked in hardware Slightly Mad studios.

"if you at least a GTX 780" wat

Flutterby1202d ago

So what you are saying is if you have paid more for just your video card than a ps4 you should get it on pc ??

The PS4 version looks stupidly good when in comparison to the pc, that is some good work by the devs.

Muerte24941202d ago

I'm saying if you're PC isn't currently capable of running the game @ max (needs minimum gtx 780) and you already have a PS4 then purchase it on PS4. But if you want to squeeze a little extra out (not much) and you already have a PC, then why not.

EverydayGuy1202d ago

If you are running at 1080p setting, you need 760 ti or equivalent. GTX 780 are needed if you want to go higher resolution, otherwise it is a waste.

AndrewLB1201d ago

Everydayguy- That's BS. I'm running the game just fine with my GTX 680 @ 1440p (2560x1440) with all settings maxed. That's almost double the amount of pixels on screen compared to 1080p (1920x1080).

Keep in mind, the GTX 680 has DOUBLE the processing power as a PS4. And costs around $250. So this idiotic claim that many keep repeating, that you need a $600 graphics card to run at such settings is patently false. It costs about $125 to buy a graphics card with equivalent capabilities of the PS4. Go price the ATI HD7870 which is actually more powerful, and it's DIRT CHEAP.

EverydayGuy1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )


Where can I find a GTX 680 for $250?

I agree that a 7870($150) will run most games at Med/High settings at 30-60fps, and a bonus is you can OC it. 7870 is still equivalent to a 760($250) performance wise.

As for the PS4 comparison, its depends on the Dev's to take advantage of it, PC's will never be as optimize as closed systems. Mantle still has to prove itself to be capable of delivering that console like performance in the years ahead.

Dee_911201d ago

Judging from these pics yes.But the difference you will see goes beyond the pics.We don't have enough info yet, but I am betting like most cross plat racers, the pc will have a larger grid which plays a MAJOR factor in needing such a powerful card for ultra settings.

Dynasty20211201d ago

To say the PS4 is holding up to the PC version is moronic.

It's 1080p, 30 FPS on consoles.

It's 1080p, 1440p, 60 FPS, or 100+ FPS on PC.

THAT is the difference. On a 120hz monitor, 100+ FPS is like buttery, silky smooth.

Anyone that says that can't see a difference at 120hz is a blind idiot in self denial.

steve30x1201d ago (Edited 1201d ago )

I have a GTX680 and this plays as smooth as butter with everything set to max @ 1080P. You dont need a GTX780 to run PCars.

This is the equivelant to a GTX680 (but is ever so slightly quicker) and is cheaper than a PS4 by €120.

If they do the sim part of it right ill be picking it up for sure!

"Project CARS PS4 vs PC Maximum Settings Screenshot Comparison: Gorgeous on Both Platforms"

the game is still an alpha, with a few builds of the alpha at different stages in development. and most of these screens by they way aren't even lined up correctly. it does however look good on the selected platforms if that's what they're trying to say.

BX811202d ago

Yeah but the PC version clearly looks better. I might pick it up for ps4 looks clean.

Imalwaysright1202d ago

You hate PC gaming. You're not fooling anyone.

2pacalypsenow1201d ago

@Imalwaysright Yes i hate it thats why i game on this , just for the fun of it and because i HATE COMPUTERS

DarkHeroZX1202d ago

Ground textures and lighting is better on PC but overall this is really close.

hellzsupernova1201d ago

do you want to invest in my business idea? need funds to finish up prototyping.

On topic looks great will buy on PC

The_Infected1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

I can't believe PS4 is holding up this good being $399. Amazing IMO.

fr0sty1202d ago

Definitely not worth shelling out a bare minimum of double that amount to get that tiny amount of extra detail...

SlapHappyJesus1202d ago (Edited 1202d ago )

Well, that's not true for me, but. That said, I don't think that argument holds true for every game in question. Not to mention, I don't believe they've ever confirmed the framerate. Just that they are aiming for 60.
Also, before anyone starts throwing around the whole "defensive PC gamer" nonsense, make note of the fact that it was he who brought PC up in the first place. Not me. I just threw some points out there in response to his statement.

F4sterTh4nFTL1202d ago

For 1 game I agree with you but when 100s of games look better and run smoother, have more control options and possibility of modding, than the answer is clearly PC.

fr0sty1202d ago

Except they don't... You can't find hundreds of games that look better on PC than PS4. It will be a long time before we start seeing games utilizing features PS4 can't handle, usually 2-3 years into the generation is when you first start seeing PC pull ahead doing things that consoles struggle with (and by "doing things", I mean more than just the same graphics at higher res/framerate).
