i cant believe some pc gamers were saying ps4 could only run this in medium/low settings, just goes to show you.

It's a demanding game on pc... 2 years ago

vishmarx1156d ago (Edited 1156d ago )

so at least you admit pc's need upgrades every two years to maintain its edge?
otherwise,show me a couple 2014 games a 2006 pc runs significantly better than a 360.
when will you realize were here for completely different reasons.
as much as we 'peasants' like to change our rides every few years ,most of us dont bother replacing helicopter engines with train engines in them every few months just to make it the loudest even if not entirely useful .
you have the spare money? congratulation.
nobody cares

sonarus1156d ago

blah blah blah. Release it on ps plus already

@Vishmarx not really I had a 570 when I was in alpha for PS2 as I was a PS1 player, I played it on max settings and still play it on max settings on my 570. PS2 problem was at the time crap SLI support and it also ran like crap on newer GFX cards is was coding not hardware.

PS1 ran like a bag of shit even on the most expensive hardware, it was not the hardware's fault it was the fact the code they used had massive memory leaks that screwed over hardware.

I bought a 770 a few months ago because I wanted a new GFX card not because I needed 1, there was hardly any increase in performance to PS2, again coding not hardware yet all my other games had a massive FPS boost. PC's are no where near as cut and dry as console are.

Oh and ill show you Bad company 2 run better on a really old 8800GTS than an xbox can do.

Clunkyd1156d ago

Most demanding PC games now are 3rd party.

Reefskye1155d ago

@Clunkyd and that proves my point coding.

UltimateMaster1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

People lack to see that those console has 8 cores.
They will use all the power they can get to deliver the best experience.
Sorry if you're a PC nay-sayer.

Oh yeah, while we are at it. Aren't mobile devices specs supposed to be stronger than the PS Vita?
Then how is it that Uncharted Golden Abyss, Killzone Mercenary looks significantly better than any other game on mobile; a game release 3 years ago.

Based on the way it was "optimized" to run on even a good gaming PCs, they weren't just speaking out their asses. It runs better today.

GTgamer1156d ago

The power of optimization (•ิ_•ิ)

BlingBlaine1156d ago

Gotta love the easy to build for architecture that the PS4 possesses.


PlayableGamez1156d ago

It depends on the game. Planetside 2 is a fairly old game. So the demand of that game shouldn't be hard to max out. Even for an next gen console. When PC gamers are referring to PS4 can only run medium/low settings, they are referring to modern day games. Games such BF4, Watch Dogs, The Witcher 3, etc.
I know I am going to get tons of disagrees on this comment. However, my attention is not to downplay the PS4.

mysteryraz111156d ago

those games are running at high settings ps4 is running most games at high or ultra

user56695101156d ago

Lol mid or high at 900p. Ps fanboys never fails

kevnb1156d ago

The way it was optimized at that point, it seemed like it would be a miracle if it ran at all. They must have done some serious optimization, I'll have to see if it runs better on pc as well, it could only seem to use one cpu core last time I tried.

ravensly1155d ago (Edited 1155d ago )

a 150$ card 750 ti runs it in ultra settings 1080p so i am not suprised it runs this well on ps4

*grabs pop corn box*

Yeah but the PC is 8k res and ps4 can only manage a measly 1080p.......

We are zee peasants!

MasterCornholio1156d ago

But we are happy peasants.


ps4fanboy1156d ago (Edited 1156d ago )

Ohhh yeahhh baby.

Nekroo , tongue in cheek mate.

Nekroo911156d ago

good luck getting a pc that run Planetside 2 at 8k with stable fps....

uth111156d ago

or a stable bank account :)

Kosmacz1156d ago

Well, i can afford such a PC (tbh i only need a small GPU update), but why? I really enjoy games on my PS4. And i can't wait to play new Civ on my PC ;-)

HighResHero1156d ago (Edited 1156d ago )

The peasant thing is silly. People spend more money on consoles gaming/games in general.
Not to mention the very "peasantish" online DRM and piracy that is so common in the PC world.
But as an owner of dozens of GOG games, an avid Counter Strike player, and a console game collector I wish the best for both worlds.

Saelyn1156d ago

That's nice. The main thing I would like if possible is just a concrete date to mark on my calender as to when I can download this.

ShowGun9011156d ago


even if its not what i'd like to hear, the truth is always better! LOL!

Whirlwind_Fanfare_081156d ago (Edited 1156d ago )

Dem PS4 graphics!

metalmatters1156d ago

well well well... hmmm so much for the master race lol jk jk Well this is good news for my and may other PS4 users who were looking forward to trying this out on PS4.
