Wolfenstein: The New Order PS4 vs Xbox One Screenshots Comparison, Minor Differences in Graphics?

Wolfenstein: The New Order runs at 1080p/60 FPS resolution on both PS4 and Xbox One. So is there any graphics/visuals details between the two versions?

The story is too old to be commented.

In the first PS4 screenshot, the guy looks constipated, he has a red face.

In the X1 screenshot, he looks like he has just released the cause of the constipation. His face has a more natural skin tone.

X1 wins. No one likes playing games with constipated NPC's.

But in all seriousness, apart from the colour of the guys skin, they're identical. They pretty much aimed for absolute parity for this game.

pedrof931672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

On the first screen, ps4 has better AA than X1 if you look at the top left window.

The game isn't that pretty is it?

Septic1672d ago

I always find in these screenshot comparisons that I'm straining to find the most negligible differences.

This is me almost all the time:

SniperControl1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

Also look at the handle to the right of the guys head in the 1st comparison.

PS4 fairs slightly better, but TBH, there is not much in it, swings and roundabouts.

Hardly a game that pushes the boundary of graphics.

BallsEye1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

Look at the detail on his cap, on XO you can alctually see the tiny stiches and edges. Same like AA this could totally be video quality problems so how about we just wait for real screens not some compressed and scaled up video crap.


they look identical with XO having better contrast in two scenes (nothing major). That's it.

alexkoepp1671d ago

Both games look equally last-gen.

system221671d ago

i thought that too at first but then i realized the angles of the windows (where i noticed it at first) were more shallow on the xbox frame which would cause the alias crawl to be more present than at a slightly sharper angle on the ps4 version. i further figured that was the case because on the rest of the screens they more or less look the same. the color seems slightly oversaturated on the ps4 version in some screens but that could also come down to image compression. regardless they both look good imo.

it certainly is a pretty game. looks fun too. i really like the art direction.

Kennytaur1671d ago

If you need to look at a top left window to tell the difference in AA, it's probably not much to write home about. I guess performance will be the best comparison.

NewMonday1671d ago

Bethesda seems one of the few publishers willing to short change customers by hiding behind the "pairaty clause"

But despite the developers applying to the lowest common dominator the game is better on PS4 because of the better lighting

I agree... both looks amazing.

Tiqila1671d ago

I would say they look pretty decent. Regarding the two versions, they are identical.

akurtz1672d ago

i dont entirely agree with the parity goal, but im not going to fret about it.
Owners of both consoles will have the same experience, which is FUN!
Will probably purchase this.

ITPython1671d ago

Owners of both consoles having the same experience is fun? Sorry, but I don't think it's fun to have the PS4 version of a game gimped because MS screwed up and made the XB1 significantly weaker than the PS4. Why the hell should PS4 players have to suffer for MS's mistakes? It is complete and utter bulls**t.

What these moron publishers/devs don't seem to realize is that by having parity between the versions and making claims such as "The two versions are identical", they are actually alienating the PS4 userbase. Which is incredibly stupid seeing as how the PS4 userbase is nearly 2 times bigger than the XB1 userbase, and that difference gets bigger each day.

MS must be real busy doing their rounds handing out large sacks of money for this parity bulls**t.

slivery1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

I don't see how you can really make any comparison when it is obvious these are not identical shot by shot comparisons, they are each slightly different.

The reason his face probably appears a different color from what I see is because the scene is not the same and the shading is probably different at that moment as he leans in, you can tell in the PS4 image on that particular photo that it is a bit before the Xbox One image and the character movement has changed. You can tell because in the Xbox One photo of that shot, the planes in the background have moved a bit further than in the PS4 shot, That alone can change things, slight movement differences.

Then you look at all the other shots and it is basically the same thing, they are not close enough to each other for me to really tell. Never mind just gotta click view image.

Pretty poor comparison if you ask me but I know people will try to have a field day with this.

I really couldn't tell you what looks better based on these shots not being identical.

All I know is the both look like ass when you blow these images up, I know it is just the images themselves but that makes it even harder to compare them when they are such poor captures.

GarrusVakarian1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

Note to self: Never make constipated jokes, and never EVER say the X1 version looks better, even if you meant it as a joke. This is N4G, after all.....

AceBlazer131672d ago

XD I could've told you that a year ago. Still though not much difference.

Lol I imagined it in my head like everyone came in here prepared for a shit storm, only to see it look identical and be just like "Alright guys it looks identical let's go home".

Tiqila1671d ago

it's the fanboys here and not n4g itself. Maybe there are a bit more ps fanboys around on this side, but that did not stop xbox fb's to flame the shit out of any ps3 title when they had the superior version, and that has not changed only that this time ps4 seems to have an edge (hardwarewise) over xbox one.

Magicite1672d ago

this game certainly requires a powerhouse to be run /s

ifistbrowni1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

The xb1 screen looks like there is absolutely no shadows. Usually im with septic on this one (not noticing any difference), but everything is "well lit" in the Xbox One screen, making it appear somewhat less realistic.

NVM, i see what silvery has pointed out. It's obviously a screenshot from the same scene, just at different times (which is probably why the shadows are "off"). Wouldn't surprise me if the site that hosted the article took pictures with the intentions of a comparison, but after seeing that they were identical, they decided to switch it up to to "stir the pot." I feel guilty that i had given this website a click.

MysticStrummer1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

"They pretty much aimed for absolute parity for this game."

Exactly. This game's res/fps was announced months ago for both platforms.

Funantic11672d ago

The X1 version does look slightly better.

GarrusVakarian1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

No it doesn't.

PS4 version direct-capture screenshots-


Now compare them to the ones used in this article.

We have no idea how the X1 version looks until we get direct-captures of that version too, but no versions are being properly represented here, which is my point. You can;'t say one version looks sharper than the other if you aren't even using HD screenshots or direct-feed footage.


And they both run @ 1080p and 60fps! We can have 1 day of peace lol

GarrusVakarian1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

Hopefully it's a near locked 60fps. I know RAGE ran at an almost locked 60fps on last gen consoles, and that was using the same engine as this, so that would be pretty cool if they managed to do it here too.

I guess we will have to wait for the framerate analysis from DF.

Or we could just not care and play it anyway, lol. It looks like a fun game imo.

k3rn3ll1671d ago

Haha I wish... now since they are the same everyone has to compare textures. Jesus people. How is this game does anyone know? Prolly not. Devs hate people like this. You all show no gratitude its sickening

user56695101672d ago

"No one likes playing games with constipated NPC's"

lmao you win the post of the week. too funny. the best comment to a dumb comparison article

dale_denton1671d ago

how are you going to compare a screenshot face expression when the images aren't even at the exact same timing. clearly he isn't talking yet on the ps4 shot unlike the xb1 he's already talking. so there goes your stupid "constipation" theory.

Ju1671d ago

Yes! What a troll!
/s (- explicitly for n4g)

Vegetarianshark1672d ago

They almost look as good but PS4 has an obviously better AA, which looks good when you're actually playing the game but looks horrible in still screenshots. But eh, no significant difference really worth noting about, Wolfenstein is not designed to be a graphical powerhouse anyway.

pandaboy1672d ago

good? they both look last gen...

k3rn3ll1671d ago

Did u see the Pics from 360 and ps3 for this? Huge difference

Clown_Syndr0me1672d ago

I want to buy this bit don't know what for. Currently finishing up inFamous on PS4 and getting Watchdogs on PS4.
Im only playing Spiderman on X1 and its compete garbage so maaybe I should get this game on X1...

BattleReach1672d ago

Why do you have a Xbox One if you only play a game on it which you can play on PS4 too?

Clown_Syndr0me1672d ago

I don't...I played titanfall, Powerstar Golf, Ryse, Plants Vs Zombies, Forza 5, BF4, AC:BF and more...Im just not playing them right now.

ifistbrowni1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

Why are you questioning the purchasing habits of somebody else?

Even if spider-man was the ONLY game this user has played on XB1, it does not concern you and IMO should not be questioned.

I own both consoles, but choose to play everything on my PS4. Ask me why i bought both?

Because both consoles have/will have exclusives worth playing over the next 6 years. I think the folks around N4G are too caught up in the "now" of things. I'll find it hard to believe 2 years from now if 70% of the n4g community doesn't own both.

I already find it hard to believe that that the majority of us use this site daily, comment on articles that are of an interest to us and STILL manage to maintain hate for the "other" consoles. Why "keep up" with gaming news if you're just going to hate on about* half of it?

There are plenty of websites centered around xbox OR playstation, people like you (battlereach) would better fit in there.

MasterCornholio1672d ago

This game has no multiplayer so if the PS4 version turns out to better just get it on that.

ifistbrowni1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

what? How does what you're saying make any sense? Surely, it can't.

No multiplayer instantly makes it a must-have for ps4? As a bigger fan of Sony, i dont know whether or not to take this a slight or what....?

Are you implying that multiplayer is better on xbox? That's a very common misconception.


Are you implying that single player games automatically run better on ps4 by ways of magic? That's just dead wrong.

I would love for you to elaborate.

Anyone should get the game for the console they feel comfortable with. Do you collect trophies or achievements? Do you like the DS4 or Xbox controller? Do you have more friends to party chat with on XB1 or PS4 (I like to chat while im gaming)? These are all things i'd consider before making the decision.

MasterCornholio1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )


I'm so sorry that my comment wasn't clear.

What I meant to say is that since this is an FPS without multiplayer playing on the system that most of your friends play on isn't a factor. The next logical choice would be to choose the superior version of the game which will probably be the PS4 version due to the history of multiplats on it. However if you prefer the Xbox One controller for FPS and thats a good reason to get it on that(I just realized this so its new).

Sorry for angering you with my comment.

P.S Are you an Xbox fan?

vishant1011672d ago

I personally feel the xbox gamepad is still a nicer fit for shooting games. Buy it for the gamepad you prefer.

FalloutWanderer20771672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

Gamepad wise ,I agree.Prefer xbox pad,although the ps4 is pretty close.I personally disliked the ps3 controller.

For shooters? Mouse hands down any day. I have a 360 controller for my PC that I use depending on the game. FPS games work so much better on mouse there is just no contest.

I don't mean that to flame either. Trust me, I've tried both and after using the mouse I cannot ever see going back. Even in 3rd person games honestly. The aiming is sluggish.

Mouse can be floaty or overly sensitive sometimes of course,tweaking the sensitivity usually alleviates that though.

user56695101672d ago

spiderman is garbage??? i was hoping it be like the spiderman on ps2 what was it spiderman 2?

No_Limit1672d ago

Both look identical. Hopefully more games will run at 1080p and 60fps for both platforms. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg as surely within 2 years, I expect many games will run at that resoulution when developers get more comfortable with the hardware and new tools available at their disposal.

MysticStrummer1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

The resolution/fps of this game on both platforms was announced back in February. I expect that some devs will go for parity despite the still existing power difference.

MRMagoo1231671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

The xbone denial force seem to be at full swing at the mo because a whole one game is close to identical at the moment, they all seem to think that means the power difference is gone, so every game running and looking better on the PS4 means nothing now because 1 game looks the same lol.

The game isnt a graphic powerhouse either, even the PC version my friend has had for a week now isnt the best but it looks a lot better than the console versions.

lifeisgamesok1671d ago (Edited 1671d ago )

Some people just have to deal with the fact that the games this current gen will look the same

Better numbers on paper doesn't equate to the advantage you want in the case of next gen

There hasn't been one multiplatform game that doesn't look identical on both consoles

MysticStrummer1671d ago

"There hasn't been one multiplatform game that doesn't look identical on both consoles"

Vision correction can be done quite painlessly these days, or perhaps you need a new TV…?

KimoNoir1672d ago (Edited 1672d ago )

That's good to hear that both of the console owners are happy with the quality.

Only difference would be a higher resolution on the PS4 which can only be seen with a screen equal to or higher than 1600x900.

But im assuming most of us are on our androids and iphonesw which are mostly lower than the spoken pixel count, most wont notice the difference at all until they play it.

Kribwalker1672d ago

Higher resolution?? They are both 1080p 60fps. You sir make nonsense with your argument

KimoNoir1671d ago

What do you always talk without a quick search? Theyre not 1080p or even close to that and theyre both 30fps.
