Here is a comparison screenshot of Madden NFL 15 posted by Bryan Wiedey, analyst at pastapadre.com. Graphically the Xbox One version of Madden NFL 15 has the edge over the PS4.
I just tested this as this story comes from gamepur and the lighting is exactly the same I have just recreated the sun shining on the PS4 version. This is a gamepur story so you know its [email protected] from the off!
You have so many disagrees. it says something
It says that most people believe known journalist who provide pictures and information to support their arguments over random commenters who just say "nuh uh" ... That aside, I am pretty sure they are both grpahically the same and the pics provided are just a fluke. The lighting won't be EXACTLY the same every time even in similar circumstances.
I like Microsoft but did they pay EA to make the Ps4 verison look like a downgrade. Lol wow As much as I love the Xbox One, EA stop holding this grudge with sony because in the end, they have sold more consoles. More consoles equals more of a chance that people wii buy your games.
How's this for proof, despite the trollng article's author's claim, the SUN is not setting in the PS4 shot. He claims the sun doesn't set on PS4 version. BS is BS.
This making to the front page of this site is pretty ridiculous imo considering the article is complete bs.
What? That there were more bone fanboys in this thread than ps4?
So the xbox one has sun glare and ps4 does not. It's interesting this is only being posted by one source. Pastapadre generally is to be trusted though' however I would still rather see this from a more reputable source like digital foundry
PS4 version will be the better one. We will let the comparisons take place first. That being said the graphics are dissappointing. To quantify it the game is better looking by only about 5-10% compared to last generation.
@nicksetzer: i would believe a first-hand account from a user on this site rather than a "journalist" from the same site who, last week, used *misterx* as a source. and if it was a fluke (i agree with you on that point) then it's not fair to present it, and say, "hey, look guys xbone version has the better lightings!"
So do you lol
People should just wait for digital foundry and stop giving these guys hits... I would be stunned if the PS4 didn't show sun and lens flare. This looks like different times of day by the looks of the stadium shadow and lighter shadows. Digital foundry will look at all of it in depth I am sure.
i would be stunned as well considering ps4 accomplishes lens flare easily in more technically demanding games
I'm not saying that this isn't true since I haven't played this but why would the PS4 version have ZERO sun flare/glare in it??? You would think there'd be something there at least, right?
The difference in lighting is due to a different time of day (different sun position). Take a look at the stadium shadows cast on the field. What a joke of an "article."
are people actually dumb enough to not see the different positions of the sun one behind the hud, the other below it?
The approved news on this site is going down the shitter. For the last few months it's been 50/50, BS to News ratio.
So graphics matter again? Cant keep up with all the flip floppin.
Not sure why! They need to test this out for themselves! Or have a look on twitch!
(Sigh) Somebody call Digital Foundry... So we can quickly get this out of the way.
you "tested" this? yeah im sure you bought both versions of the game for 120 bucks just to "test" this lol.
I have never claimed to have bought both versions. Gamepur claim that there is a lighting effect missing specifically lens flare. I have checked the PS4 version and it is present.
@quicktim3: you don't need both versions. the article claims that PS4 doesn't have the lens flare, so all you need to do is look at the PS4 version to verify. and bennibop confirmed it was actually present. so someone is lying, and it's not bennibop.
I dont know if he did or didn't, but I've done this myself a few times, GTA IV being one example where I bought it for both PS3 and 360 and then kept the one that I liked best and traded in the other for the same value that I paid for it. Shop called CEX in the UK, if you trade the games in shortly after they come out sometimes you get more back than what you paid.
one has lens flare because of the situation, the other doesn't. put both in the exact same situation, and they would look the same.
^ I guess someone should have told that to Diablo 3... We have no idea how similar they are technically speaking, digital foundry will let us know fps, res, lighting. Who knows which version is "superior". It is true that PS4 has better hardware on paper, but what does that even matter with all the secret sauce X1 has? /s I guess having the superior version does matter after all though to both fan bases, good to know.
The ps4 version definitly has lense flair. Who cares about a lense flare affect anyways. Thats not really the games lighting.
yep. "lens flair" is 1 or a few sprites. its completely trivial and has NOTHING to do with lighting.
Y U CRAZY, CANT PLAY NFL WITHOUT LENSSSFLARE
I wouldn't believe it either way , EA always go for parity and if they said the ps4 was better I still wouldn't believe it. But anyone trying to say this article is telling the truth are gonna look silly when it's confirmed false and bs soon enough. I can bet my left nut they are identical because that's what EA do.
Risky to bet your left nut hahaha because I bet the PS4 version has a better frame rate and it actually has the "missing" lens flare that this article was completely wrong about. This just goes to show that there are a bunch of gullible little kids out there that will believe anything thrown at them just so their little console can be number 1 (sorry but that won't happen). Same things goes for all those idiots brainwashed by Fox News. They believe anything without doing any fact checking whatsoever.
Sony corporate PR post.
People need to realize that all u have to due is change the contrast and lighting settings on your tv to make one Version look different then the other... I can make the lighting look terrible on the highest end PC if I mess around with the settings. I'm not saying that is what this journalist did, but if u want to see if there is a real difference you'll have to buy both versions and test it for yourself.
Wait min look again closely at the pictures guys. The still shots been taken one were the sun isn't blocked by the on screen score bar were beaming the light on the field. The other looks like taken just after the other shot look at the yard line idk maybe just me its like 5am here lol. And there big icon on the field blue thing missing fom second image. Now lets say all that doesnt change anything what if the game has dynamic lighting.
@Bennibop- The difference between what you say and what they say is quite interesting. These guys had a side by side comparison where you didn't. PS4 might still have a lens flare effect but is it at the same quality? I am not taking your word for it unless you have done a side by side comparison and show pics. This article supplied pics you didn't.
So it matters to you. I just want know because you guys move the goal posts so often. You're saying graphics matter again even small differences.
Can you verify their side by side comparison is authentic? Can you confirm that the settings are the same in each image, and not at different times of day or from different angles? It doesn't take a user here posting a side by side image comparison to disprove this. All it takes is people playing the damn game themselves on PS4 and noting that, yes, there IS flare in that version. And if there's ANY doubt as to the impartiality of the author or site (Polygon, William Usher, etc) from previous outings, it's actually intelligent to fact check them. Based on other comments here, that indeed seems to be the case. I'm curious as to why you'd attack him and protect the article, yet you have nothing to confirm what they assert, yourself. Do you have some reason for wanting the article to be correct, and thus for wanting to discredit the OP's claim? I bet a check through your comment history would uncover just such a motivation.
The XB1 will never have a graphical/performance advantage over the PS4 in regards to multiplats... unless of course MS pays to have the PS4 version gimped. The PS4 not only has the superior hardware, but it is also much easier to develop for. So if the PS4 gets a version that is considered inferior whatsoever compared to the XB1 version, then foul play is absolutely confirmed. Sorry for those who disagree with this fact, but unlike last gen where the PS3 had the hardware advantage but was hard to develop for, and the 360 was easy to develop for but had weaker hardware, the XB1 has no hope as it not only has the inferior hardware, but is also harder to develop for. It's lose-lose. PS4 versions of multiplats will always be better unless it gets gimped. Fact.
Fact: you are an idiot! Sorry if you disagree with that fact, but the fact is my fact is actually a fact. I love facts.
I don't see much of, if any, difference at all.
the light shining is what they're referring to
This article seemed pointless.
The lens flare is the only difference. The true cause is that in one shot the sun simply is obscured. Whoever did this comparison is a tool.
Most of the time you can't with most of the games, but you know how people on n4g are.
Well there appears to some type of generic type of lens flare coming from the sun in the Xbone version.. not sure how that means better lighting but, what ever..
So now you guys are blind but you can notice the difference between 720 and 1080
So now you see a difference in Lens flair but can't make out the difference between 720p and 1080p , I tough graphic didn't matter?
Yep they all lied they care about graphics when its better on their console. Hypocrisy
Here come the "MS paid EA to gimp PS4 version" comments.
lol got any other explanation as to why a company that paid the NFL millions of dollars to have some fantasy football feature integrated in the console to be a NFL fans go to console wouldn't pay EA to make the only NFL game on console look better on the Xbone? Eh I'm not saying this happened at all but, just because you 'called it' it shouldn't negate the claim.. Just sayin I know you can't reply with one bubble.. its a rhetorical question.
I don't imagine stuff like that actually happens, because when it got out the sh*t would surely hit the fan. We all know it would get out. Whether it be disgruntled employee or by some other means. I think we can all let that one go.
Me neither.I never thought Microsoft would pay to delay Tomb Raider on other platforms to get first dibs either.. but that happened.. Hey, lets call it a partnership, now alls well lol. MS gave EA some secret juice and additional cloud space to boost performance on Xbone! For the record I don't think they will look any different..
can i have a tin foil hat too?
maybe they should've taken the screen at the same time? rather than the ps4 version being later in the 1st qtr and the sun being set more (hence the extended stadium shadow on ps4)
It's only a minute or so difference in time. Wouldn't make a difference. Imo
I'm a Madden fan and I own all three consoles. I call you bull$h!t sir. I've played the ps4 version and it's great, but the lighting is better on the X1. Some people........ Smdh
Very cool, but I got it on X1 because of the superior network. Better graphics is just another bonus.
Yall still believe MS got the superior network??
you don't?... all I'm saying is my experience with Dead Nation was terrible it would drop every time we got to the second chapter and make us start over and drop again idk who you blame that on but i blame it on pan servers...
Look at last weekends PSN downtime and tell me it ain't the case
Of course I do. I mean who would even try to argue otherwise
Brim: thats a bug with the game dude. lol Dead Nation had some problems.
Azure is the 2nd largest cloud company in the world...Xbl went from 30,000 servers on 360 to 300,000 for XB1, so yeah, its way better. Sony took 7 or 8 years to get party chat going on PSN...just saying.
There truly is no denying that MS has the better network. It's simple facts. There server network is vast and far superior with Amazon and Google being it's only true rivals in that category.
How does that translate in games? The PSN is just fine for online gaming. Tell me how gaming on XBL for this will be better than PSN...
"Tell me how gaming on XBL for this will be better than PSN..." It's not.
This is going to get good once the fanboys from both sides see this. I'm just going to sit back with my popcorn and enjoy the bloodbath!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's a sports game, the nerds won't care about this one.
Yes they will, if it mentions xbox v PS then they will come.
This is the Mafia 2 grass all over again.
I don't see how you could tell unless the time of day was exactly the same. Only difference I see is the sun shining through the clouds, but that could be because of the time of day.
