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...

JackOfAllBlades1643d ago

Ahaha it funny because it no coming to Xbox!


KwietStorm1643d ago

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?

PurpatraitorMGS1642d ago

It took me a moment to get this joke, but when i did, i laughed my ass off.

Chrisgamerguy1642d ago

The funny thing is the ps4 versions of dead rising 3, titanfall, sunset overdrive are black.

XiNarutoUzumaki1642d ago


Same with the Xbone version of Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, and Final Fantasy 14

SpinalRemains1381642d ago


Bubble for making me laugh literally out loud.

If you own a PC and Planetside 2 and a PS4 you know this article is 100% false.

Any PC I believe they've redone the graphics from the ground up for the PS4, hence the long wait

ProjectVulcan1643d ago (Edited 1643d ago )

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.

Chrischi19881643d ago

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.

Jughead34161642d ago

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.

frostypants1642d ago

"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...

SpinalRemains1381642d ago

No. Just no.

If your grafx card allows you to, you can play the inferior grafix at a higher resolution.

MRMagoo1231642d ago

" 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.

SpinalRemains1381642d ago

Resolution does not = be all for graphics.

Hell, you could play a 16 bit game on 1080p and its still 16 bit.

ScottyHoss1642d ago

@ATI_Elite your Playstation 2 can do 4k?!?!

/S x999999999, I fully understood your comment

Magicite1642d ago

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.

choujij1642d ago

I'm sure the fact that the PS4 is easy to develop for helps.

ATi_Elite1640d ago

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.

calvincrack1643d ago

Are you a sony rep? Good god. Your positive and balanced spin on this makes me feel very combative

KwietStorm1643d ago

That says a whole lot if anything he said at all makes you feel combative. We're talking about a video game.

Software_Lover1643d ago

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

AgentSmithPS41643d ago

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.

tordavis1642d ago

Everything they are doing to make the PS4 version look 'better' can be done to the PC. It's BS.

truegamerkt1642d ago (Edited 1642d ago )

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?

raistra1643d ago

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.

ramiuk11643d ago

there just trying to sell it??

its free!!!!!!!!

dont need to sell it

CheexInk1642d ago (Edited 1642d ago )

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.

Truthandreason1642d ago

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.

nutcrackr1642d ago

You sell the concept to people so they use their time to play it. Free games cost time.

MysticStrummer1643d ago

It looks almost identical to me. The main advantage on PS4 is that everyone's console will run it the same.
