For now, the Xbox One version seems to be suffering from screen tearing, specially when bullet cam kicks in. Screen tearing is almost non-existent in the PS4 version of the game.
Compressed gif's to compare a game? Also, they look very similar.
Agreed. If you are going to do a comparison. Do it correctly. The compressed images don't reflect the actual quality of either system's real performance.
yes im sure its a conspiracy,xbox always wins in proper comparisons. they even put tearing on purpose. cheap bastards
@vishmarx Well played sir, UNMATCHED IRONY.
@vishmarx Well, Murdered looked better on XO with much sharper textures (no anisotropic filtering in ps4 ver) and yet headlines of n4g articles were giving ps4 upper hand saying It Has better textures. Please go and see comparisons yourself. Honestly I couldn't care less since on top of all consoles I still own a 2k euro monster PC but seeing how XO getting downplayed all the time is getting really annoying.
@BallsEye "I still own a 2k euro monster PC" off course you do! as does every fan boy!! who doesn't care about their console of choice getting POWNED BY A CHEAPER, MORE POWERFUL CONSOLE!!! LMAO not calling you out dude but its just that the amount of times i have heard that line or some thing similar since the new consoles came out and the glaringly obvious difference in power was exposed, is TOO FUNNY!!
Well said LonDonE. These fanboys are such phonies.
I did watch a guy playing the xbox one version on eurogamer and there did seem noticeable screen tearing. Thought the patch would have addressed this, obviously not.
There's a v-sync option in the game to eliminate screen tearing, well there is on my copy for ps4, I wonder if the guys doing the comparison turned it on for the XO version? Either way, regardless of graphics between consoles I found this to be a very poor game that doesn't do much different from the first game or its remake. I got way more enjoyment this weekend out of Valiant Hearts; now there's a proper war game!
Lol if its a gif comparison its too compressed If its a Youtube video its the video quality's fault if it's a picture its the picture quality's fault. There is no winning.
A lossless .jpg or a raw ideo format are the only 2 ways to really compare actual quality. So yes, I agree that if it were an youtube comparison, I would probably say the same thing. Compression changes everthing, even adds false tearing and artifacting sometimes.
That might change after Youtube actually supports 1080p 60fps. Right now the only reliable sites for HiQ game videos or comparisons are Gamersyde and Digital Foundry.
@fenome No, that wont change. FPS has nothing to do with compression. There is a really good video from Computerphile that really easily explains the differences between gif and video compression. https://www.youtube.com/wat... It really all comes down to using lossless codecs to compress videos. Youtube doesn't use those codecs and settings because the filesizes are larger. Which obviously makes it harder for people to stream well. They basically tried to find the perfect middle ground between quality and size. For certain videos like console or PC comparisons the videos really have to be lossless otherwise the compression will introduce artifacts, screen tearing, pixelation, and even alter colors. @nicksetzer1 Without being compressed the raw video size would be insanely large. There are lossless ways to compress videos, but youtube doesn't use them.
@MarkusMcNugen I stand corrected, thanks for the info.
You can see the screen tearing and the contrasts, so...they got their point across, I guess.
And mo' betta performance, res, fps, aa n' effect is better, there be a no way round dis shit. Im definitely gettin it on tha PS4
The game sucks. I wouldn't get it for either system. The difference are minor. The resolution and performance are pretty much the same.
Since when did anyone care for Sniper Elite 3? oh, fanboys do, silly me, I often forget we don't live in a world created by me
oh dear, another lazy job?
Not really. I remember this studio giving interviews and talking about their issues working with the Xbox One, but also mentioning how things had gotten better and in the end, they were able to hit 1080p on Xbox One allegedly. Lazy would be like Thief on both systems.
Yeah that was originally posted on Gamerbolt.
They had to make compromises on the ONE, which is why you get a lot of screen tearing.
What makes you thing he is talking about the developer and not the comparison.
@BigPappy What makes you think he is talking about the comparison and not the developer? You said yourself that what he was talking about is "obvious" to you, despite any context whatsoever to give you such confidence.
So, because a game runs at a lower performance level on weaker hardware, it's always going to be chalked up as a lazy job on the developer's part?
Ok, so you got to take a swipe at Xbox. It was quite obvious to me that he was talking about the comparison Gif's and not the developers. My guess is that you already knew that and decided the theme didn't suite the insult you wanted to get over.
He gives absolutely zero context as to whether or not he means the article or the game. Neither of you know what he meant.
I just saw a FPS comparison video and the PS4 side had way more frame dips while the Xbox One side often held a steady 60 frames
@ life post the link
@life I'm guessing you also have a friend that makes $4677 a month from home on their computer...... Posting a link as proof is the only way to differentiate between fact and someone who's just trying to throw thier troll comments into the mix (but you having one bub is more telling than anything).
Frosty, that seemed to be ps3 fans' favorite excuse.
Except with PS3, when developers did go the extra mile, it showed with visuals that weren't rivaled on other consoles at the time, not just parity. However, few other than first party devs bothered.
Where is the Outlast article (PS4) that talks about framerate drops into the 40s and as low as 24 for Outlast, a game built on a last gen engine? http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... The screentearing will likely be patched. Titanfall screentearing is almost nonexistent post patch. Contrast can always be adjusted.
Are you really comparing a game that had several additional months of development time for the Xbox One version that ran on a last gen engine and was a port from a PC game released last year? Also, Titanfall doesn't even run at 1080p or a solid 60fps, and the fact that it STILL has some screen tearing even after the patch (even you had to admit, "almost" non-existant) isn't anything to brag about.
Illusiveman, that is about as off-topic as it gets. Your poor defensive spin is stupidly irrelevant.
@frosty It still suffers from screen tearing at 792p? Yikes.
What does Sniper Elite have to do with Outlast? P.S I read the article and its pretty much a tie between the two systems with PC being the best.
There a huuuge framerate oscillations in Outlast on BOTH consoles, Illusive_Man. And both version are 100% the same. What is your point anyway?
Looks like he didn't read the article. Eurogamer says that both versions are identical.
Huge? lol. There like 5-10fps drop when something loads in. Or some shitty Unreal3 fire effect comes on the screen. It's a very old engine. Hence unreal4. Wouldn't take a blind bit of notice of cross-gen games.
Outlast is actually better on the XB1. Digital Founder did the comparison and said XB1 loaded faster and kept a steady 60fps. Knack on the PS4 drops to 14fps. It's not even locked at 30fps. What the hell was Mark Cerny thinking? Creates a game that runs poorly on the hardware he help create.
PS4 = Headshot .... Xbox1 ~ shot to the knee .. pretty much sums it up
LOL!! No. More like PS4 = Headshot XBox One = Eyeshot.
Pathetic comparison. Contrast could be a capture issue and a poor adjustment, not to mention screen tearing could be the same, and compressing to gifs doesn't do much to help. Other than that, they are identical...if anything it's proving there is no point in comparing. Comparisons this gen yield less differences then ever, and when they do, it's like this where they are intentionally captured differently. This gif proves nothing at all, it doesn't prove that X1 does have screen-tearing nor that PS4 doesn't. Tearing is a common issue with gifs as seems to be the case here. Either way, in real time, the only reason you notice this gif tear is cause you're looking for it on a loop. Sorry but these selective comparisons are seriously pathetic this gen. I'm getting it for X1, there are just way too many gaming aspects that are ACTUALLY important to me for this to matter at all, my PS4 will have to wait till No Man's Sky or Order.
I think they may have just used the wrong word. "Lighting and shadows" would be more appropriate. With this generation of consoles, the differences are very hard to see on the internet using something like YouTube, or, in this case, GIFs.
The Screen tearing is noticeable, especially when looking through the reticle... which is a something I find mildly distracting. It shows up at other points and is noticeable, but I don't see those instances necessarily effecting gameplay.
Keep telling yourself that, the difference is there, but hey if you want to get the inferior version instead of getting it on your "alleged" ps4 , you know what they say about fools and their money..
Sorry, but comparisons this gen have much larger differences than last gen. Whether YOU notice it or not is a different story, but to say differences like 1080p vs 900p, 900p vs 720p, or even 1080p vs 720p (MGS:GZ) are smaller than last gen is a flat out lie. Last gen the differences were extremely marginal (with the exception of a few games like bayonetta and ghostbusters), and yet Xbox fanatics would brag. Now they have trouble tasting their own medicine. They want to brag when their team wins by 2 points, but act as if its no big deal when they lose by 20.
Wasting your breath on corvusmd. He needs an eye exam as he can't ever see any difference this gen.
As per usual TEH 'hard to notice difference this gen' rears it's ugly head. The differences were TINY last gen! minuscule resolution differences last gen that X fans went on and on about. But larger differences this gen can't be seen, and are so small, or don't matter. There are some true diehards on here, I will say that.
Tip: anything from gamingbolt will be extremely biased. They hate xbox.
They hate Xbox because they point out obvious issues with the game on the Xbox One. No logic whatsoever. How dare they!
I'm not sure that's true.
Tip: anything multiplat will be inferior on the xbone, get used to it.
Outlast isn't. lol!! Alien Isolation is said to be indentical on both systems in resolution and performance.
Like I said countless times before. Its time to accept the differences and move on. Just because a game is better on a certain console doesn't mean that the game is terrible on it. Sure there are differences but the game is still playable on the Xbox One which is something you should be happy for. When I bought Skyrim at launch the game was almost unplayable on the PS3 luckily Sniper Elite isn't like that on the Xbox One.
Am i missing something or do they look just about exactly the same? Also are we really comparing quality through gifs?
You're missing something. Intentionally, methinks.
the xbox one is awesome and so is the ps4 buy both like me=] ps i hate resolution i don't care if its 900p just run it smoothly but they have to cater to loud fanboys.
who really cares about this game
Lol. A lot of people. Sniper Elite is a great franchise. Sniper Elite V2 was a lot of fun. You should try it out.
Sorry Xbox fanboys, deny it all you want. PS4 multiplats will always look and run better due to its superior hardware.
i know but i will buy them on my xbox due to my friends play on that system and its superior online services.
Can't argue with that. Well besides the superior online services. They are pretty equal.
play on that system and its (insert opinion here) superior online services.
No, that would be my PC, with an i7 OC'd to 5GHz, 16GB of 1866MHz RAM, and a Gigabyte GTX780ti ; if you want to play multiplats at their finest, PC is the only way to go. And LOL @ "superior hardware" ; the PS4 is only powerful in comparison to the X1, and last gen consoles.
We are all amazed by the specs of your daddy's PC. On topic; Unreal Engine 3 had a great run last gen but is really showing it's age in this game. Some effects look a bit dated. I can't wait for the U4 games..
Shame. I don't get any screen tearing on bf4 or wolfenstien on the xb1 I wonder if it's the devs or if the graphics/on screen activity are being pushed to the point of tearing?
