Watch Dogs PS3 Vs PS4 Vs Xbox One: Can You Tell The Difference?

Gaming Blend "with what visual information we have available – and before Digital Foundry does the inevitable visual breakdown analysis – we simply have to ask: can you actually tell which version is which?"

But Ryse came out on the weaker next gen hardware. Look at any of the 1080P exclusives like Killzone PS4 has. Now look at ALL next gen MP games, PS4 has better or if they've achieved real 1080P on the xbox one the same res. So saying Ryse was downgraded and couldn't do 1080P is pointless when the hardware of the PS4 is more powerful, they need to change their info there really because it sounds like from that, and the comments about night time play that the 1's the better hardware, when it's not.

60% of the time Ps4 wins every time. Lol

guitarded771665d ago

Yeah... I'm still trying to figure out what he was saying. I feel dumber for reading that comment.

I was surprised that there was an actual jump from X1 to PS4. Wolfenstein was basically the same between the two. Guess we'll see the differences depending on how demanding a game is and/or how well the developers understand the hardware.

Jay dude put down the joint while you still have a couple neurons left!#

Or maybe he's one of those geniuses who have trouble expressing themselves in layman's terms or in English for that matter...

Ron Burgundy: Wow. Never ceases to amaze me. What cologne you gonna go with? London Gentleman, or wait. No, no, no. Hold on. Blackbeard's Delight.
Brian Fantana: No, she gets a special cologne... It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries... Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.
Ron Burgundy: It's quite pungent.
Brian Fantana: Oh yeah.
Ron Burgundy: It's a formidable scent... It stings the nostrils. In a good way.
Brian Fantana: Yep.
Ron Burgundy: Brian, I'm gonna be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline.
Brian Fantana: They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.
[cheesy grin]
Ron Burgundy: That doesn't make sense.
Brian Fantana: Well... Let's go see if we can make this little kitty purr.

Maybe he´s like me and English is a 2nd or 3rd language?

UltraNova1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )


Same here, while I know I'm not 100% of the time correct either grammatically or in spelling, I do believe,however, I make sense 60% of the time all the time!



Hahahaha, weed/psychedelics do real wonders when it comes to general comprehension doesnt it?

wah wah , love my console hate on others. Translation complete.

PsychOff1664d ago


Please don't associate smokers or anyone who uses cannabis with people like this. It takes far more than smoking pot to write something so incoherent, that actually seems like he was drunk from alcohol no doubt. Pot does not make you inebriated as such.

Many of the stupid people you see promoting the usage of marijuana are dumb to begin with, they were stupid long before they ever decided to use it.

What is stupid is intelligent individuals get grouped with morons like this because they may represent something in a bad light.

One the worlds greatest minds probably would have smoked pot if it wasn't so badly labeled during his time. Einstein smoked tobacco obsessively but tobacco has been proven time and time again to cause more damage to your body and brain than cannabis ever could.

So does that make Einstein a dumb ass because he liked to smoke, smoking something that actually caused his brain more damage? Obviously not.

I get defensive because that is my job, I actually live in Canada and grow for patients and people who really need cannabis, if you saw first hand what it did for these people with severe neurological disorders you would never say something like that, let alone how hard it is to grow and manage these plants alone. There are also many people that I know who are very intelligent and use cannabis regularly.

So this idea that smoking pot makes you stupid is nothing more than an age old stigma that had no physical proof to begin with based off horrible experiments and even the studies that say so today are so no different because their experiments had no controls in the first place to even come to such a conclusion. Not only that they are always paid for by whom? The government, the same government who has no problem selling you a product that is known to cause severe brain damage like alcohol, a government that has no problem selling a product that literally warns you, that you could potentially get cancer from using it like tobacco. That isn't including all the screwed up pharmaceutical pills they sell with absurd side effects like pills for depression, that only increase your thoughts of suicide in a person who is already clearly depressed.

Growing plants and understanding the botanic science about plant life requires a great deal of intelligence just to master. So please think twice before you assume everyone who uses cannabis is dumb, because that is far from the truth.


Arnon1664d ago


Insulting an entire group of people for personal choice does not hold grounds for taking one seriously. Also, at least know about cannabis before making such claims about it having some sort of extremely negative cognitive impact.

DrJones1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )


..That doesn't make any sense

XisThatKid1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

I'm (sarcastically) glad you goto such lengths to justify or to enlighten about the usage of illegal and legal substances on a gaming site rather than even attempt to help clarify what his person is even trying to say. But I do agree with you on that though,
MY interpretation is that he's saying PS4 hardware is "superior" especially since the multiplatform games seem to be better on PS4 and that the article says a few things that make it seem that the X1 has better hardware and the X1 version is better during the night time sequences. I disagree I didn't get that form this article but whatevs.
I can be wrong but that's kinda what I got from it. I'm guessing english isn't their main language. overall I don't really care about all that I like 60 fps and I spent years playin in SD just fine before and during PS3s' life so anything above 480p is a blessing. 1080 would be appreciated.

UltraNova1664d ago


Normally I would agree with you since you went the whole mile to explain why discrimination is a bad thing,but I will not.

Why? first this is n4g not a patient support program nor a blog about serious matters people like to discuss, we JOKE here and we do that a lot!

In no way this was meant for people who are in need to use medical cannabis and failing to see that does not surprise me at all since you chose to attack a gamer joking in a gaming forum.

Purposefully picking on the word weed and ignoring psychedelic, my second comment, was week to say the least. The effects of the latter, can more than justify the in-comprehensive structure of the comment above. I will not get into why I would know anything about it, but lets just say I am in a more specialized field of Biology my self.

Being in the field of growing for medical use gives you no right to attack people who don’t even mean things you might perceive as ill intended. Btw do us all a favor and go somewhere else to advertise your mastering of botanic science.

Finally, do you see anyone else here attacking other users who Joke or even make serious remarks for a certain field just because they are personally invested? Even if this happened before its wrong to begin with. If you feel so inclined to do so, then discuss it, by all means but personal attacks would not go a long way.

So please, next time “mind your surroundings” and act accordingly.

PS: To those out there who felt offended by my comment and especially the dude who wrote the comment, I was joking around on a notion (false or not) everybody knows and I apologize for it.

I will let a PRO tell you...........
"Don't make the mistake of judging a console by the quality of the launch
window games. Let's have this discussion again in two years when we have
games that are actually using engines designed for next gen hardware
instead of ported last gen engines adapted for next gen. We haven't seen anything truly next gen yet..."

choujij1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )

I have no idea what you're trying to say.

But honestly, based on the images provided, I was right about which one was the PS4, but I did initially have some trouble deciphering between the Xb1 and PS3 versions, but upon further inspection I was able to decipher which was which.

In the Xbone's defense, it's probably due to the quality of these photos.

BallsEye1664d ago

I'm wondering why these fools compare low quality videos from different sources to say which console got best version...these vids even got different resolutions. That's just stupid.

corvusmd1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

The good news is that all versions of the game look great. You can pick out the PS3 screenshot rather easily, however from there it's probably 50/50 (although I have a hunch they didn't get all the screens from the same source, so it may not be a good comparison...these screens look familiar, as in almost exactly what we've seen before, but one was a game capture, one a direct feed, and one from a gif). It sounds like the author was desperately trying to make one version seem like the best, and although it might be, it's not nearly as drastic as it would seem.

They all look great, and more importantly the game looks fun, my issue with things like this article are actually the sense of entitlement that gamers have thinking they are "owed" 1080p/60fps. Is it nice, of course it is. However, other than resolution, games on next gen consoles are leaps and bounds above last gen games. If all games were 720p, you'd still definitely tell the difference. New gen and old gen 720p aren't even close to the same thing. Every aspect of visuals/graphics have been greatly boosted, even in most cases the resolution and frame rate.

Again, it's nice to have 1080p/60fps, but if this gen is teaching us anything so far it's that there are far more important graphical features than simply resolution. Would anyone in their right mind say Knack looks better than this game (and that's not even a dig at Knack, it's a very clear crisp game)? It's the beginning of the gen, we are just now hitting 6 months, the games we are seeing were in development before the consoles were fully realized and they already look amazing. I suspect the 1080p/60fps "issue" will disappear, but in the meantime let's just enjoy all the awesome games and stop acting spoiled...if you don't like something, don't buy it. I'm gonna just enjoy my Wii U, PS4, and X1 for the great systems they are.

@Ercs Ok, move along then...

ErcsYou1665d ago

You talk way too much...

thorstein1665d ago

That's because he only has one bubble.

On topic. Just give me the game and I'll decide for myself.

Metallox1665d ago

You should appreciate that, at least his comment is kinda developed.

Ghost_Nappa1665d ago

What a well reasoned argument, why waste it on n4g? Seriously though, shame you have one bubble.

Gozer1665d ago

I agree. I bought Ryse a couple weeks ago and was floored by its graphics. There is no way in hell last gen consoles could make a game look that good. Give me Ryse quality visuals all day every day at 900p I wont complain.

This article is a joke imo. They have taken screenshots from other sites and are trying to capitalize off fanboys. I personally can spot the ps3 pic, but don't have a clue about the other two pics. But I noticed the author likes to stir the pot.

hello121665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

If you can push out a game like Ryse at launch, the xb1 will be fine and it is powerful.

The PS3 version stands out it not that hard to notice.

The PS4 looks worse, but i doubt it really looks that bad. Look at the buildings, no way its that bad surely?

I think its best we wait for better footage.

SniperControl1664d ago (Edited 1664d ago )


Everything to do with the PS4 is worse in your eyes.

How the hell can you even tell from those low res blurry screenshots? They are not even at the same location with-in the game.

Another pointless comparison.

eferreira1664d ago

I just got to chapter 4 on ryse, looks great but seeing the same character models over and over looks like they had to sacrifice that in order to get the great graphics

Qrphe1665d ago

Cinemablend is a terrible site. I won't forget all those articles reporting hearsay as news regarding E3.

KonsoruMasuta1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

It is pretty obvious which one is the PS3 version. Beware though, all of this were taken from low guality images/videos.

I'm waiting until the game comes out. That's when comparisons will be easy.

memots1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

Not pointing the finger at you. But ...

Why do people care so much about this versus that .

Difference in this and that? Who cares just buy it for what you want and don't tell anyone else they are stupid for making their own choice.

fps , Resolution , sales are becoming ridiculous. I want to partake in gaming discussion not this shit.

And again KonsoruMasuta is not on you but when you said "I'm waiting until the game comes out. That's when comparisons will be easy." that got me going. lol

oh yeah on topic, If i get this game it will be on Pc ;)

KonsoruMasuta1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

I really don't care what the game looks like but I'm definitely curious about how the last gen versions will turn out. That's the only reason why I'm waiting for a decent comparison. I want to see current gen vs last gen.

Julion07151665d ago

Exactly how I feel some jus need to use dumb stuff to justify a purchase smh

ITPython1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

Vs articles help me figure out if the PS4 version has been gimped in the name of parity, which helps me choose which games I want to support or not.

Any vs article in which the PS4 is not the dominating king by a long shot, and has devs saying crap like "the two versions are identical" means parity confirmed. And I'll have no part of it. If the game appeals to me, I will buy it used so they don't see a dime of my money.

I dealt with it all last gen being a PS3 player, and it sickens me to see it still going on this gen even though the PS4 is significantly more powerful AND easier to develop for AND has the sales edge of 2:1. At least last gen it was easier to cope with since the PS3 was really difficult to develop for and had the sales disadvantage in the beginning... but this gen? No excuse why the PS4 version of every multiplat shouldn't outshine the XB1 version like night and day.

If the difference isn't massive in favor of the PS4, then that means MS got to the publisher/devs and paid them off. Or the devs are just incompetent and lazy. Either way I won't support it.

Benchm4rk1664d ago


If thats what helps you sleep at night then good for you. This whole myth about parity is ridiculous. Last gen it was "Content" parity. It had nothing to do with quality. This gen with multiplats there will never be a night and day difference. Only minor at best. Buy games and support the industry no matter what console. People work hard to create these games

memots1665d ago

yes but ultimately.. Will the comparison actually change anything ? You will buy the game on Xbo or Ps4 or PC or whatever you want and that comparison really has no value to you.

That is what i am getting at

KonsoruMasuta1665d ago (Edited 1665d ago )

That means I can't be curious about how the game looks on Xbox360 or PS3?

The comparison still has value to me because it would tame my curiosity. I'm curious and I want to see how the last generation versions will look.

I'm curious. Should I be shot for it?

memots1665d ago

Alright sorry you got defensive , just trying to get some insight on what it is that get people so worked up over.
