Destiny Beta Split Screen Video Comparison for Xbox One and PS4

EB's Matt Heywood writes, "The Destiny beta has come and gone, so what is the gaming world to do with itself now? Well, how about checking out a split screen video comparison of the Destiny beta running on the Xbox One and PS4? Just what the doctor ordered? I thought so.

Before checking out the video I just want to offer a few notes on it for reference. The Xbox One footage was captured using the built-in Game DVR app, so the footage is as native looking as possible for that console. A capture card wasn’t used to pull the footage to ensure that the quality was as close as possible to the resolution output of the PS4′s built-in DVR system for a fair comparison. The Xbox One footage was pulled into iMovie using One Drive to further ensure that the video is as close as possible in terms of encoding and resolution to the PS4 version, which was pulled from Facebook, and not a USB drive, and added to iMovie for processing."

Game looks great on both consoles, but the PS4 has much darker black tones and more vibrant colors overall.

Neonridr1176d ago

when one is 1080p and the other is 900p, generally one looks better than the other.

We should all be waiting for the release versions to do proper comparisons.

AngelicIceDiamond1176d ago

Even then its barely noticeable.

All I see is color difference.

They both look great though.

My problem is this:
"The Xbox One footage was captured using the built-in Game DVR app, so the footage is as native looking as possible for that console. A capture card wasn’t used to pull the footage to ensure that the quality was as close as possible to the resolution output of the PS4′s built-in DVR system for a fair comparison."

Both consoles' DVRs downgrade and compress. Neither are represented fairly in this comparison. A capture card with options would have been a far better choice to do a legitimate comparison.

Or better yet - wait until the full game comes out.

Why do a comparison video in 720p? O_o

GiggMan1176d ago

Booo! I read the title and thought they were adding split screen lol.

Would have saved me from maybe having to buy another PS4.

BallsEye1176d ago

Yep. XO runs on a bit earlier build. What I'm suprised is that next-gen Destiny looks almost same as 360/ps3 version in higher res. Next-gen should be about lighting (MOST IMPORTANT), particles and shaders, not just pixel count. Oh well, still looks great! Loving the enviroments, they're beautiful! Enemies design is so so(uninspired, modified version of enemies from Halo). Armors and chars are really cool, just disliking the funny looking hairstyles taken from a korean MMO .

EData1176d ago

I thought I also noticed favorable shaders and colors in a duelshockers article as well. I don't think it really matters all that much to be honest, but the PS4 version may look a bit more vibrant. I think we should just wait for digital foundry to determine it though.

But but but the X1 up scales it and then you can't even tell....

it would prolly help if he showed us that both brightness levels were the same

EDIT: anyone else annoyed at the fact that he doesnt go fro crit headshots? wasting ammo bothers me lol

Cryptcuzz1176d ago

LOL, ammo is plentiful in the game my friend. Maybe he didn't care and just wanted to make a quick comparison video instead.

At first I was like that and those Knight guys took longer to kill, but once I learned about the critical hits by doing head shots, they went down in no time at all LOL.

XiSasukeUchiha1176d ago

Both look excellent but PS4 has better tones, and smoother palate.

tgunzz1176d ago

Comparing betas.... look at the work being put towards comparing screen shots. They used more development tools than bungie did for destiny. They can't even be patient enough for the final releases... I wonder if all gamers would stop commenting on any new articles like these would n4g change what they are doing?

tacotruck1176d ago

I'll have to agree, both versions look good, but I think the PS4 takes it overall.

user74029311176d ago (Edited 1176d ago )

both look good but ps4 takes this one easily.

blackout1176d ago

Please stop. Compare the game when it is released.

Spotie1176d ago

Why not compare the betas as well?

JeffGUNZ1176d ago

Ones 1080p and the other is 900p. That's a solid reason.

Letthewookiewin1176d ago

I thought there was no difference between 1080p and 900p
