"The PS4 version of PlanetSide 2 will have a significant improvement over its PC version."
Sigh, prepare your anus for the annoying fanboy wars.
I saw the comparison between the PS4 and version and the Xbox One version. The Xbox one version was all black I'll see myself out...
Ahaha it funny because it no coming to Xbox! /S?
I really have no idea what you're saying, and I have no idea why you have so many agrees. Were you making a joke?
It took me a moment to get this joke, but when i did, i laughed my ass off.
The funny thing is the ps4 versions of dead rising 3, titanfall, sunset overdrive are black.
@ChrisGamer Same with the Xbone version of Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, and Final Fantasy 14
Lmao! Bubble for making me laugh literally out loud.
Now that was funny xD
If you own a PC and Planetside 2 and a PS4 you know this article is 100% false.
Relative to whose PC?
Any PC I believe they've redone the graphics from the ground up for the PS4, hence the long wait
Far as I was aware it's the same as ultra on PC and in 1920 X 1080. Thats nice but the game will be two years old on PC when this arrives for console and it wasn't that much of a looker in the first place if we are completely honest. So PS4 should be able to run it pretty decently 2 years after the thing arrived. It's an online game. This sort of game usually evolves over the years even just on PC. They add visual revamps in massive client downloads etc. They already did some since the game launched way back when on PC.
The game is old on PC und redone for PS4, not such a big surprise here, it is not like the PC could not handle the PS4 Version.
My Pc Eonjay.
Lol...PC gamers hate these articles. I like to sit back and read all the butt hurt comments. Lol
* UPGRADED and improved Visuals DOES NOT = Better looking game. * Basically they've improved the visuals and fine tuned some things so it will look better. Like a graphics update. So the PC version STILL CAN LOOK BETTER, if your graphics card allows it too. * At the base level, some of the lower detailed things have been improved for the PS4 version. Title is misleading kind of.
"UPGRADED and improved Visuals DOES NOT = Better looking game" No, that's exactly what it means. "So the PC version STILL CAN LOOK BETTER, if your graphics card allows it too" Your graphics card can't utilize visuals that haven't been incorporated into the game...
No. Just no. If your grafx card allows you to, you can play the inferior grafix at a higher resolution.
" UPGRADED and improved Visuals DOES NOT = Better looking game" <-----------This comment here I am going to book mark so I can show everyone THE most stupid comment I have ever read on N4G. Did you read what you even wrote. Hey guys having all the money in the world does not = having more money than a person that is broke.
I play PS2 at 4K so I have NO IDEA what this article is talking about.
Resolution does not = be all for graphics. Hell, you could play a 16 bit game on 1080p and its still 16 bit.
@ATI_Elite your Playstation 2 can do 4k?!?! /S x999999999, I fully understood your comment
I would never believe that multiplat will look better on PS4 compared to PC, but it seems heres a first example. Although its understandable, PS2 launched on PC a while ago and surely they can optimize it even further now on a console.
I'm sure the fact that the PS4 is easy to develop for helps.
they totally went back in and redesigned PS2 for the PS4. PS2 ran like CRAP for a long time on PC but instead of fixing those issues they concentrated on the PS4 version. I have no problem with it as PS2 PC is loosing it community because of the stagnant updates due to the PS4 release and I'm playing Firefall a lot more along side BF4 PC anyway. so no time for PS2 PC but it's still a good game.
This statement will not be taken well by some on this site. I believe if we take the emotion away from the assessment of what was said, his statement may indicate that they may have added better effects, optimized animations, maybe tweaked the visuals overal. All these things can make a game look "better" in a lot of ways. Overall, the takeaway from this should be that the PS4 is a very capable console, and one that should provide its users with plenty of playing options going forward. If they can make this happen, I can just imagine if they decide to revive MAG for the PS4..... EPIC. My nephew was all about this game, so I can't wait to try it out. I just hope people actually start using the FREE microphones that were included with their PS4s. Speaking of mics, if anyone wants to get in a few rounds of BF4 from time to time with a microphone add me up PSN:TASHITO. Hope you all have a great weekend. And Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.
Are you a sony rep? Good god. Your positive and balanced spin on this makes me feel very combative
That says a whole lot if anything he said at all makes you feel combative. We're talking about a video game.
Emotions aside, its gonna be taken the right way and not the wrong way. The right way is saying that A)The dev didn't optimize properly on the PC side or just stopped after a certain point. An Hd 7950 has 2.87 teraflops and 3gb gddr5. A 1.8 teraflop ps4 shouldn't look better B)no doubt its easier to optimize on consoles, and the extra time allowed the Dev to make graphical changes. C)I doubt the differences will be HUGE as the title suggests. If they are, then what is the point of PC development because devs no longer show that they care about it
I'm glad the PS4 is looking so great already. Yeah barely anyone in BF4 CQ uses a mic and/or they're all in a party, many don't get how much more fun it is and how much better you'll do when working as a team. People like to complain about the mythical screaming kids on mic but that's even more rare than people talking.
Everything they are doing to make the PS4 version look 'better' can be done to the PC. It's BS.
Everything that was done on 2k last year, could have been done on pc. The key point is that it wasn't lol. Why would devs care about pc players, when you only wanna spend 20 dollars on a game?
They're just trying to sell it. They've done that multiple times in the past. Eventhough I wouldn't mind if they update in those graphical upgrades they're talking about into the pc version.
there just trying to sell it?? its free!!!!!!!! dont need to sell it
Their servers and dev teams don't run on good times and happy memories. They want you playing it so you will spend money on microtransactions in the game. So when they're advertising and making marketing hype claims they are 'selling' their game as much as any other game with an advertising budget is.
Just because it's free doesn't mean they don't need to sell it. They need players interested to sign up for Subs or buy the microtransactions.
You sell the concept to people so they use their time to play it. Free games cost time.
It looks almost identical to me. The main advantage on PS4 is that everyone's console will run it the same.
what??? heresy! :P
Honestly, I seriously fail to believe this at all. PC has a lot of graphical quality settings, making this statement completely rubbish or open for debate. Planetside 2's engine is demanding. It's got nothing at all to do with optimization. You need a VERY beefy machine to get it to run on Ultra. It's also incredibly CPU dependent. Also, they haven't told us what kind of PC it can look better than. If they've taken a mid-ranged PC with 5 year old tech, then yeah, MAYBE. Unless they have altered the engine, which means it's not even the same game any more, then there is 100% no way it will look better. This is typical SOE and Sony marketing hype bollocks to make the PS4 look more powerful than it is.
Who cares the new updated version should bring in new players so if the games fun, win win
So, wait a minute, you're saying as long as it's FUN that it doesn't matter? Sounds like what XB1 fans have been saying since the launch of the XB1. SO like usual, if SONY does it, it's okay, it's all about "FUN"... but if MS does it, then the only thing left to cling to is GFX? regardless of how playable a game actually is? Hypocrite much? Sounds like greatness awaits.. in the form of the same PR b.s. That Sony fans get mad at XB1 fans for. Double standards are unbecoming. Especially when you guys have "THE BEST CONSOLE" Upgraded GFX is more likely to mean optimized, especially since the game has been out for years. What dev WOULDN'T get better at rendering a game after 2+ Years?
True, i have a mid average PC, you can tweak all the visuals an a .ini file, THEN you can make the game look amazing, far better than the Ps4 version. and even my PC runs the game at 40 fps.
I don't understand how this is possible.
Because they enhanced the visuals for the PS4 One thing that many PC gamers just don't understand is throwing more hardware, higher resolution isn't going to automatically make a game look better. It will look SHARPER, sure. But a game with crap visuals will still look like crap with ultra settings. Just sharper and more crisp crap. A much bigger factor in how good a game looks is the quality of the artwork in it. What they are saying is they added better quality artwork to the PS4
Great point. PC that has similar specs with the PS4 isn't automatically going to give you the same quality with every game. Never underestimate optimization and tweaking. Nevertheless, I just watched the Gamespot interview and when they were showing the PC version with ultra settings the guy said that PS4 owners could be expecting similar quality. I don't know who to believe at the moment..
I'm pretty sure your talking out you a$$ with that PC gamer talk. You comments shows you Dont know about us. Throw more hardware and resolution isn't going make the game look better? Wrong crowd PS fanboys does this. If what your saying is true how do we have so many tweaks and mod the make everything better. This is common sense. More disinformation. We know better than anyone that res isn't the only thing that matters. Is it because we have 4k that you try to make sly remarks? Is it because we have mods to improve textures you try to throw sly remarks? Is it because we have mods that enhance gfx accros the board that you throwing sly remarks? Is it because we have tweaks that enhance performance that your throwing sly remarks? Is it because we have mods that changes or improve gameplay that's why you're throwing sly remarks? It because we support dev greater and set trends and gave birth to games you like? You do know most of these devs y'all worship is mainly PC gamers. Most PC gamers know what you stated. We know about features and options that are demanding more than console gamers. Y'all maybe scratching y'all head wondering this game is demanding while comparing to one of the many corridor shooters. Try again
Why not update the PC versions visuals to the "improved" PS4 versions level? Making stupid comments like this will not achieve anything other than piss of PC players unnecessarily.
who cares tho ? are people afraid of pc petitions ?
Well we are the ones supporting them while they are making the PS4 version. I am pretty sure they care about there one and only revenue stream.
Planetside 2 was a shadow of the previous game, so this doesn't surprise me at all. It's also why i completely lost interest in the game. To outright say that the PS4 version will look better is crazy, because it's patches away for the PC version.
Who hurt you?
https://www.youtube.com/wat... Doesn't look as good as the PC version I played. In fact it looks noticeably worse. I'm guessing it's a long way off if they plan on making it look better than the PC version, because what they've shown so far clearly isn't.
I'm not defending the article but that a youtube vid and its offscreen so you're not see the true quality of the visuals.
So lemme get this straight. When a youtube vid is shown, you SONY guys say "youtube vids don't make a difference or don't show the true quality of the visuals... but when a 792p version of a game is shown on XB1, and it looks like 5% or worse than the PS4 version, you guys go apeshit? Which is it? I can tell a difference between the 720p and 1080p vids on youtube, and if we're talking about the game's true potential, then what's to stop a 720p from looking as good as 1080p title...? especially when there are more effects or post processing being done due to the lower rez overall. If Uncharted really was in engine, and the streaming video for the conference FROM sony was running in 720p direct from SONY, then where's all the butt hurt a holes crying about resolution gate? Sony is no better than Microsoft. the Passion for destruction of all things MS is still stronger than the typical group of buddies defending XB1.
sooo basically they just said we optimized the game better for ps4 and dont really wanna optimize the pc version.
Expect a back tracking explanation on Twitter later, there is no way my PS4 will run Planetside 2 faster, and with better detail that my overclocked Core i7 with 16GB of RAM and a 780Ti graphics card.
Also will it be running at a dirty thirty fps, because to me that's a massive downgrade when comparing it to the PC version. Ive played War thunder and Warframe on my PS4 and they both look and run worse than my PC so I have my doubts.
60fps has already been confirmed for PS4, so you'll be fine.
Planetside 2 on PC only uses DX9 and the devs outright refuse to upgrade it to DX11. Comparing the PS4 version (witch uses api with similar features to that of DX11) to the DX9 PC version is not a fair comparison. SOE just shot themselves in the foot with that statement and they will loos a lot of players because of this. Lets just hope the PC version gets a DX11 boost.
DX9? Really? That's so early 2000's
Seem understandable they been working on this version for the longest. PS2 is not the gfx benchmark it use to be. Not really sure what they are going to do to make look better in gfx you basically fight in mountains. Redone models, textures, better effects? Sound like PR. Devs always wanna say sound but Dont explain. PS2 was a benchmark because the amount that goes on and the physics, not for the gfx per say. Good to hear if true PS fan not getting a sh!tty port
lol the only way this is possible is if they upgrade the graphics on ps4 and decide not to make the same changes to the PC version.
If true it just means they are a lame pc developer and is not using the power of more powerful pc's
thats funny sony not being able to make THEIR game better on their platform lol
It is ugly I just re downloaded and forgot how bad it looks on ultra , still a grind and very average to play.
It only makes sense when they have been working on it for all those months and its far easier to optimise for one static piece of hardware than it is for thousands of possible configurations. SOE left the PC version of this game to the dogs long ago.
