Battlefield: Hardline Beta PS4 vs PC Screenshot Comparison: Not the Prettiest Princess at the Ball

The Battlefield: Hardline beta is available on both PC and PS4, but how do the two version stack against each other in visual fidelity? DualShockers set out to answer that question with a screenshot comparison.

The game itself looks pretty generic, but yeah...from these screenshots I'm not seeing any difference. Even when they pointed out differences in their blurb at the end, I don't see it. I blew up a few of these and flipped back and forth. Maybe the PS4's shadows are a bit softer?

At any rate, this game doesn't interest me at this point. I'd much rather spend that money on 3-4 well made indie titles then spend $70 cdn on "Generic AAA Shooter X!"

The only screenshots with a large difference that i saw is the first one, the others it was some slightly lower textures and aliasing.

sephiroth4201191d ago

maybe the one with the tree in there aswell, i saw a slight difference in the leaves, both look pretty poor for a new game.

Well it looks like the textures wasn't fully loaded in the first pic on the PS4. The PS4 version looks better in the 2nd pick. If you look at the garage doors and the hand and drum clip on the gun and the gun looks a little more refined. But other then that they are pretty spot on.

The differences were subtle... nothing that will affect the experience. I played on PS4, and was underwhelmed with the visuals... I know it's BETA, but it wasn't very pretty. The Destiny Alpha was better looking. But Hardline played good, and the new vehicles were refreshing. The map was good too.

You will find differences here and there with a keen eye, but nothing much to talk about.

Steering wheel on the car for PC has more detailed texture. That's about it.

That said the whole thing looks kind of meh. I still think it's ridiculous that this is being marketed as a standalone Battlefield game.

shivvy241190d ago

Yep it was the car internal that was more detailed, shadows were softer on ps4 but that's it, no MAJOR difference.

Utalkin2me1190d ago

Don't think the textures was loaded all the way.

3-4-51190d ago

It's like BF4/BF3 but more generic kind of.

It play like BF4 + GTA Cars = ehhhh I'll stick with BF4 for now.

elhebbo161190d ago

The textures are clearly better on PC, you would have to be blind to not see that.

Anon19741190d ago

Yeah, apparently I'm blind because the differences are so slight it's not even noticeable to me. I even went back after you posted this and had another look because I thought I might have honestly missed something but the differences are so slight it's almost imperceptible.

elhebbo161190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

@dark if you are telling me you couldn't notice the obvious difference on the police car dashboard and wheel you probably need to get your eyes checked.

Anon19741190d ago

Ah. I didn't notice at all. You're right. It looks like the texture on the steering wheel is tiled differently and the instrument panel is a touch sharper on the PC. Thanks for pointing that out! Personally, I've never understood these comparisons. Just pissing contests for fanboys for the most part. I mean, if the differences are so slight you have to pause the game on focus on one particular piece of geometry to notice any difference at all, it's it just nitpicking at that point?

How many 360/PS3 comparisons did we have to suffer through where someone claimed "Look! In the top right corner, the shadow on that rock beside the fence is a little blurry! Inferior!".

I'm not saying there aren't differences between the versions, I'm just saying for most people they wouldn't even be noticeable. I didn't look at each of the images the first time through, but only grabbed a couple of the others. Forgive me for missing the texture differences on the dash.

Using my 1440p monitor, from the first picture, I noticed slightly better lighting, better textures, better AA and extra details in the PC version. It's not a big difference altogether though and the game looks generic.

elhebbo161190d ago

how much AA do you use? I imagine for a 1440p you wouldn't need much if any at all because of the pixel density.

system221190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

i see some pretty big differences in aliasing and texture clarity.... then again its not final release so maybe they're just keeping the packaging small.

Anon19741190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

Really? Those are "big differences"?

Alright then. If you say so. Clearly what I view as minor and almost unnoticeable differences are stabbing someone else in the eye. To each his own.

I can't tell the difference but I'm sure someone will give us the facts..

Priestwithgun1191d ago

And yet it requires a better pc to run(than bf4), I dont get it

AgentSmithPS41191d ago

Give it at least half a year after release and maybe it will run better ;).

elhebbo161190d ago

No it doesn't, With BF4 I had around 70 frames on ultra with my 760, with this one its around 60-65 on ultra. The game is still being tuned so its to be expected.

Neixus1190d ago

It's a Beta, the textures and graphics are downgraded to keep the file size small :)

hemmo19861191d ago

Meh, looks like BF4 with a new skin. I'll pass thanks

MCTJim1190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

I'm just not seeing it. They look exactly the same.

edit, they are charging full price for this? Are you kidding? Wow..just wow
