Great news for PS4 owners: it looks like EA is investigating into creating disparity between the PS4 and Xbox One versions of EA Sports UFC when the game launches in two weeks.
I really think the Xbox One version is holding back the PS4 version. Parity most likely.
"They were looking at whether or not we could have the PS4 [version run] at a higher resolution," ..."but whether or not their investigations were successful? I don't know at this time." Doesn't sound like parity to me. And no dev aims for parity if it can do 1080p it will.
It does seem like EA is kinda holding back the ps4 versions from reaching 1080p on purpose just to stay on MS's good side and avoid resolution drama from the fans... I can understand that in a business perspective, but as a gamer I find it very disappointing to see.... We will see how the witcher 3 turns out on the ps4 as to whether or not it will run in 1080p because if it does, lol, well EA is gonna have some explaining to do;-)
And what exactly are you basing that on? Has any game so far this gen been held back on the PS4 due to some parity clause ? Pretty sure the majority if not all third party games have been performing better on the PS4. DF did there analysis on a demo. Game spot did an interview geared towards PS4. William usher is a known MS hater in every sense of the word. Final game I can see both as 1080p30fps but even at 900p30fps still a good looking game. My only issue is that on easy it's unbelievably easy as in a 14 second win easy
Day one patches are not unusual, and graphics disparity seems to be the norm so far. In the end, it's not an open world game so it shouldn't be too hard to hit 1080p on either system.
BF4(900p 60fps, EA)- launch title, multplat Watch Dogs(900p 30fps, Ubisoft)- Open world, multplat EA Sports UFC(900p 30fps, EA)- ???? multplat That's three games sub 1080p on PS4. Two being from EA. What is UFC doing to put itself into that small group of games that can't do 1080p? Nothing about the gameplay looks demanding compared to other AAA games. My point is 900p is far from the standard on PS4.
@rg i know day one patches aren't uncommon these days I was just pointing out it's a demo of a game not released for another 20 days give or take. That's assuming the demo was done on its release day @argu not sure what the point in bringing those in they all still exceed the Xbox one versions and the point I was making was that the Xbox hasn't held back the ps4 yet so why would this game do it
@ArgumentumAdPopulum , Nice pick and choose...how about adding in other multiplat games like COD Ghost, Assassin's Creed 4, Need For Speed Rival, NBA 2k14, Trial, Tomb Raider and Wolfenstein also. Here we go with the conspiracy again. smh
@ jack, I think EA is aiming for parity instead of using PS4 extra power to avoid resolution talks. That's where my ideal of Xbox One holding PS4 back comes from. Is it because of their very obvious partnership with MS? who knows.
LOL, William Usher strikes again. I am shock he would come up with another outrages article like this again. I am downloading both demo now and will see it for myself...thank you very much. But I would think both will be similar.
No_Limit strikes again.
If you read the DF analysis, it says the PS4 version is better. Better anti-aliasing. PS4 has 4x msaa, while Xbox one has 2x msaa. If they end up boosting the resolution on PS4 to 1080p, you'll notice the difference. Most likely will eliminate all aliasing.
I would also think that if the games don't look the same and the ps4 does look better, you would still say they look the same, because you would probably have a break down if you had to admit every multiplat does look better.
@Flutterby , Stop stalking me and troll on all my comments like a puppy. Go play some of those superior third party ports on PS4 or something. LOL
you cant say that if the ps4 version is running at 4xmsaa and the xbox is at 2xmsaa thats not parity.
That's a excuse to deliberately bring down PS4's native resolution to match Xbox One's 900p(parity). If PS4 and Xbox One both used 2xmsaa. PS4 would be native 1080p and perform better. Imo, 4xmsaa compared to 2xmsaa is not worth sacrificing native 1080p resolution and performance. I'm sure they agree also. But for the sake of resolution parity. I think they decided to go with 4xmsaa at 900p(same resolution as Xbox One). If that's not holding back a console, I don't know what is.
4xmsaa will make a bigger difference than the leap from 900p to 1080p. As excuses go, it is a pretty good one.
Every year games get more and more demanding, these consoles cannot keep up as their hardware stays the same and to be honest both consoles have pretty low end GPUs for 2014
PS4's GPU would still be mid-tier. And any current mid-tier GPU that could be used to it's fullest potential with code developed and optimized specifically for it on an ever-evolving SDK - can do amazing things for a few years to come. Factor in the unified hUMA style GDDR5 and soon-to-be-standard GPGPU computing with the altered GPU made specifically for it in the PS4, and then the possibilities get even crazier.
Parity is real sorry to say:( but enjoy your game everyone:)
Hahaha, so you playing the parity card huh? How, when most multiplats are better on PS4 as is. If its being held back blame the devs not Xbox One.
All the fanboys think its parity which is stupid. They think The crew is aiming for parity because both run 1080p 30 frames and to them its impossible and unbelievable the X1 is doing it. They believe the 30 frames is what's "holding back the PS4" Need For Speed is 30 frames Parity! The Crew is 30 frames Parity! Drive Club is 30 frames Par!...oh wait a minute FH2 is 30 frames oh... Yeaaahh.
PS4 WINZ AGAIN
Dont get pissed when someone tells you consoles are holding back PC, 900p is already enough of a difference but you still want to go there and say the Xbox One is holding back the PS4? especially on a SPORTS game thats not even that graphic intensive? dude you think too highly of your console.
game looks like shit and runs like open world watch dogs scale game? GIMME A BREAK!
We will see soon!
I just downloaded the demo on both consoles, they literally look and play identical. Only real difference is you can multitask while playing on the X1.
Thats a feature of the OS not the game. :I
I use it as a feature of the game. Like to Skype my friends when I play so I can see their defeat!
If i was going to play this game I could record the past fifteen minutes on my PS4 instead of just five minutes on the Xbone.....game would still be the same though.
3x5=15! Just saying.
Hm, how not surprising that incendy35, found no differences aside from snap. Typical. Keep shilling brother.
Except it is already proven they don't look identical because ps4 has better AA derp.
lol who wants to multitask while playing a fighting game? wtf.. you sound stupid
I just read your comment, and it's literally BS.
umm multitasking on the ps4 floors the xbox ones which is why they used the simpler format for a ui
I thought it was confirmed a long time ago to be running 1080p 60 on both
I thought is was as well I only downloaded the ps4 version thinking they where the same .
Thought it was just 1080p confirmed. This is a demo after all and as they plaster on the starting screen not a final representation of the game
no , they never confirmed 60 , where have you read this ?
Sorry should have been. 30 FPS....my mistake
60fps was never confirmed for this game. Its always been 30fps. I cant believe that 3 people agreed with you. As expected, this comment section will be filled with primarily resolution warriors as opposed to people who are actually interested in this game. /facepalm
Rofl @ Resolution Warriors And somehow I disagreed with you....my bad.
The funny thing is nobody at all knew the demo wasn't 1080P until it was found out. In fact you can go look at their twitter and see messages to them from users on the PS4 talking about how beautiful the game is and how this is a true "next gen" experience. This should be the exact proof that is needed to debunk this resolution crap. The game somehow looked so beautiful to the gamers until people found out it wasnt 1080P lol. For the record i have played it on both an X1 and a PS4 and if you say either one looks better you are absolutely lying. They look identical, the gameplay is exactly the same as well. Play the game not the resolution.
Ive been playing the demo for three hours each day since Tuesday. Not ONCE did the game resolution or frames per second pop into my mind. I was too busy having a blast with the game. This resolution fiasco has overstayed its welcome. It never ceases to amaze me how pathetic some people are. The game plays and looks great. Thats what matters.
You are right. People just bicker over resolution cause they are told by a journalist that there is a disparity, then freak out when a game is not 1080p.
Great point Bonkers! It's a shame people are resorting to numbers to determine whether a game looks good or not Most can't even make out 1080p from other resolutions
I was going to get this on X1 for balance but, if this true it looks like I will be getting another ps4 game smh. My poor x1
Or you can make a decision. For your self and download both demos and see which version you like more.
I'm getting the best possible version on consoles.
Played both. I didn't notice any difference except the colors on the ps4 version seemed off. Nothing to worry about. For me the best version is the Xbox one. I feel more comfortable with the controller. If it was mortal kombat or street fighter I would have to go with the ps4 version because I favor the controller for those types of fighting games. Either way I hope u enjoy the game and I hope the online is better than undisputed lag.
xbox resolutions are not good
We come from THQ's UFC undisputed last gen to this EA crap Give me 60 fps or give me Death. One by one another Genre EA has monopolized and ruined :(
Want to love this game so bad but the hit detection, and controls (defense controls mainly) is annoying.
Shame your not liking the demo the way you wanted to. I'm in love with it. I didnt buy the THQ games due to the canned/unrealistic animations and odd "shine" submission system that I never understood. I bought EA MMA used but the fighting felt to clunky and lacked the sense that Im actually connecting. The lack of big names also bothered me. EA UFC fixes the issues I had with both games. The submission system seems feels 100% fair and VERY fun to play around with. You NEED to practice. I hated the game the first hour I played it. But as I practiced more, I got better and now Im denying transitions and subbing with relative ease. Not saying your one of these people, but Im sick of seeing people bitching on the EA forums that the game is too hard. OF COURSE its hard at first! MMA in real life is tough when you dont know anything. Why anyone would spend $60 on a game that they can master in a few hours is beyond. Its good that its hard on easy mode IMO. Honestly, let me know what ur having trouble with. I will do my best to help. The biggest problem people are having seems to be the takedown denials. You need to practice a lot to get the timing right.
I don't suck at the game nor do I hate the game. I've played UFC/MMA games since the Dreamcast era. I've played the demo like 40 times already. Getting use to horrible controls doesn't mean the controls aren't horrible. UFC Undisputed 3 had very good controls. The game is simply a step backwards and only a step forward in regards to graphics. The submission system is decent in my opinion. You can say what you want about THQ's animations but this game it's far too common for a fighter to walk through a roundhouse kick that lands right on the button to spam you with punches. The defense is pretty bad due to the R2 button being needed. It should have been mapped to the right analog (hoping that's an option). Don't assume the people complaining aren't spending the time to master the game. Guarantee you most of them put way more time in than you do. This game just feels like a step backwards in many ways. As you said, you didn't buy the THQ games. Their better in several ways than this installment in my opinion. The ground game is pretty lame compared to UFC3. The transitions isn't as fluid and the punches from up top seem like pillows coming down. Now with that said I don't hate the game and I will buy it, but it definitely has issues.
The ground game ( a key aspect of the sport and the game) is what's annoying me the most... when on top of your opponent and you punch the guy it seem like your throwing soft slap .. yet you can ko someone from it . Want to get out of bot position ? Just L3 your way out of it. Quite an oversight imo no touch gloves when the fight start i mean really ?! one of the most basic features that should be default in the game have to stand still to give low kicks ,breaking apart someone doesnt work , if you low kick someone an entire round , it wont matter the next , his legs will be functioning as usual . Can't punish someone for attempting takedown Stamina ,punch , kicks , takedown should have their own stamina bar imo.
Locked 60fps is whats most important
this is obviously parity issues, infamous ss is open world and looks better then this and is 1080p so is driveclub to which is a racing game, ac4 was patched to 1080p on the ps4,though ufc games suck they are boring anyways
i think it comes from the lack of knowledge from their own engine , it is fairly new and are still optimizing it.
Parity issue really. Come on seriously on get a life. The PS4 version was dropping frames, with all extra features added on. This was at 900p. You really think the PS4 version can hit 1080p with the extras and still maintain a solid 30fps? If anything it mostly likely a CPU issue, Sony 1.6ghz clock . Microsoft 1.75ghz. Weird is it not Digital foundry reported the xb1, had better frames rates, not much, but that extra 15ghz is better. Infamous really. Lifeless city with mostly the same cars, hardly any people on the streets, bad character models, some of the cut scenes were ok, but its overated compared to Ryse from what i have seen. Killzone looked next gen to me, but its not a shooter i would be into.
infamous ss was a big open world game with tons of pedestrians and particle effects to, its obviously more taxing then this game, which is just more parity crap, this doesnt even look that good, stop trolling and being a idiot, cause I can tell from you comments you are just making shit up
"Infamous really. Lifeless city with mostly the same cars, hardly any people on the streets, bad character models, some of the cut scenes were ok, but its overated compared to Ryse from what i have seen." You speak the truth! Second Son looks exactly the way I would EXPECT a launch PS4 game to look like. It didnt blow me away visually. If anything the most impressive part of that game was the voice acting. I thought it was a great game, but I didnt feel anywhere close to what I felt when I played the opening scene of Uncharted 2. THAT blew me away!
Yes, it's a parity, KNWS. I know that PS4 can get 1080p, dude. How you will react if PS4 really get 1080p and Xbone stays with 900p??? Anyway, here is about PS4 and Xbone CPU. Read! And which is faster? http://www.neogaf.com/forum... http://gamingbolt.com/subst... http://www.lazygamer.net/24... KNWS's quote : The PS4 version was already dropping frames at the lower resolution. It would have be downgraded even more graphically to get it running at 1080p. PS4 goes up to 32 fps, Xbone can't do that. Which is better? 1 framerate drops here on PS4 and there and Xbone version is a miles away better!!??? Give me a break. 4xMSAA is much more demanding than 2xMSAA and THAT's a miles away. PS4 also has better shadows. Xbone has SHIMMERING! What is SHIMMERING? Here it is ( look at the Gustafsson hair ) : http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Or here : http://i.minus.com/ibhgvy71...
Yes this is the most important part to everyone, smh.
you know what? EA loves Microsoft! Look at Titanfall!!
The PS4 version was already dropping frames at the lower resolution. It would have be downgraded even more graphically to get it running at 1080p.
do you own a playstation 4? because i never once saw a frame rate dip on the ufc demo.
Meh, once again no one will likely be able to tell the difference. Differences this gen are less than they have ever been in the final product, but you'd never tell by the way some talk about it here. There are so many more important things to gaming than these extremely minor res differences. Clinging to them looks desperate.
Last gen was miles closer in power so what are you talking about.
