Watch a new video showing a graphics comparison between the PS4 and Xbox One version of Alien: Isolation.
Wow, the difference is staggering, because there is no difference
Yup. Looks identical. I seriously can not wait for people to post that they can see a difference.. because it will happen.
Probably...... hold on....... wait a minute, I do notice a tiny pixel that's out of place "fiiiiiiiiiiiiight"
well the Xbox One version had an extra clipboard on the table when Ripley went to hide under it.... platform favoritism anyone??
Are you guys blind? There is such an obvious difference. Stop making excuses because you cant tell the difference. Anyway, let me show you the truth. This is superior to any Digital Foundry comparison: http://i.imgur.com/v4nfPQc....
@septic lol finally someone who has eyes. How could people not see the effects of gr8 aw8 buffering
actually, there are shadow differences @ 1:20.
I dont trust videos on the internet and I think best to rely on first hand analysis from DF but somehow often it seems to me the Xbone saturated colors make it look unrealistic. But its just the feeling I have given that the only way to really compare is with the real consoles on a large screen
Oh man, the ps4 version may have a few more pixels than my x1. My game experience is ruined. This game sucks on my X1 now... I have an x1... I guess i can never have fun playing games this generation because ps4 guys said so. (I hope you caught my sarcasM) I played Shadow of Mordor on my X1 and threw it out the window when I saw the ps4 comparison. *runs away pouting* Ps4 guy said in nerdy voice "victory is mine!" Oh man, this was funny in my head, I hope it was worth the bubble I'm gonna lose! LOL
Mr Burns voice "Excellent Excellent". Bubble up by me. So funny and true.
The only difference I saw was in lighting, in the PS4 version the lights on wall were moving,like it was swinging back and forth, other than that they were virtually identical.
Slightly deeper colour on the X1 but other than that identical.
50% more power on PS4?
Devs aiming for parity?
that's why we'll never see anything different when it comes to multiplat games. they dont want to piss micro off. at least naughty dog will show them how its done like they always do.
@Kane22 "that's why we'll never see anything different when it comes to multiplat games" Eh? We aren't even one year in and we've seen big differences between multiplats already.
"Devs aiming for parity? " Before today's news about Ubisoft, I would have disagreed. But, now I have to wonder everytime the Xbox and PS4 have the same pixels and framerate.
That would be noticeable in graphically demanding titles like Shadows of Mordor where there is a difference in the visuals. But for games like this the results will be the same. Anyways it looks good on both systems which is what matters. P.S The difference is more like 40% not 50%. @Kane Maybe some developers but most of them won't aim for parity. They didn't last gen so they won't this gen especially with the most powerful system selling the most. I wouldn't worry about parity unless the developers have a really close relationship with Microsoft.
Is there a difference in shadows of mordor? i really couldnt tell.
Yea, shadow of morodor 1080p 30fps locked on xb1 and 1080p 60fps unlocked (usually 30-40fps) is a HUGE difference.... http://www.gamepur.com/news...
FYI, it's 900p upscaled to 1080p on X1. That article is based off of an incorrect Gamespot statement. Not a big enough difference to get your panties in a knot, though. That is, unless the person is a fanboy, then they'll care more about that than the actual game.
I know SoM is open world... but it doesn't look all that great. I mean it is a cross gen game and it shows. Not to say it is hideous, but it isn't as if it was the next crysis or something. It doesn't strike me as particularly good looking, that's what I'm trying to say. Funny thing is Monolith is the dev of SoM, and they made AVP2 like 13 years ago. I wish they would revamp AVP2 with a HD re release that supports new hardware better and has visual enhancements. AVP 2 vanilla version doesn't support 16:9 or 16:10 resolutions and the mods and workarounds are horrible, mouse movement on win7 32 bit using a razer imperator is F*ckd up as vertical movement will happen in a wildly exaggerated jagged manner as if the game thinks vertical axis mouse movement translates to horisontal movements also. Not to mention some visual aliasing or bugs due to slight incompatibility with modern GPU's and API's. (weird colours/lighting in certain places) Its pretty bad for me at least, and Rebellions AVP did get the HD release treatment so why not? I would love it. Anyways, I'm eagerly awaiting my copy of Alien to arrive in my mailbox. haven't been this excited for a game in a long ass time.
Im pretty sure shadow of mordor is 900p on xbo, gamespot just got it wrong
No one could tell the difference between Shadows, which is why the usual suspects stayed out of all the articles because they had no confirmation from the Devs themselves. Shadows is identical and if it wasn't no one knows unless told. Again, just more high level trolling from a sony camper pretending there's this huge difference in visuals. And the excuses are even better now this gen. If a game runs equally on both systems then the dev doesn't want to "piss off MS". Last year it was lazy devs, this year is don't make MS mad. Why? If MS is so far behind in sales and Sony is crushing and dominating the console market then who cares if you piss off MS? Why piss off Sony when they are the king of the castle? Why is it that these campers think it's ok to piss off Sony and Nintendo but please not MS and aim for parity?
Looks pretty damn close to me. Don't think this title is really putting either machine through its paces. Plan to pick up once the price drops a little.
It has been known for 10 years or more that you can't tell the difference between 1080p and 720p unless it's on a huge screen, at a very short distance. 900p vs 1080p is indistinguishable. Resolution isn't the most important GFX effect, but for a multi play it's the only thing they can change. The aren't going to put more enemies on screen or anything.
I hope you're joking, I cant really tell.
trolling in 720p or 1080p the difference is hard to tell , depends on the distance ...
...see, that's just not true. You can see a clear difference between 720p and 1080p. The image size alone on my laptop screen is staggering.
What are you smoking?
Thats bs. You have tons of computer users on here that try to get the best com[puter monitors, also with high rez. bcus even on a small screen they notice the difference. As for me, that isnt my situation as i game on a 140 inch Favi projector screen and own a optoma 1080p projector which is awesome. I notice immediately when games arent 1080p because all the sub hd ones look noticebale different on my screen and all the 1080p games look gorgeous!!!!
I can tell even with smaller monitor sizes around 28" from across the room 12 feet away. I guess some people's eyesight is better than other's.
Are you all blind? Clearly the version for my system has better pixels! /s
My pixels come with beer
Maybe something with the lighting and the particle effects but other than that both look the same to me. I'm not surprised at the results since the game isn't graphically demanding unlike a recent title like shadows of mordor. Good job on both versions.
Ahh, the new excuse "Not graphically demanding". You're so transparent.
Cross gen game, isn't very taxing technically on any of the consoles, thus it looks just the same.
Well Alen Isolation got a higher Metascore on PS4 than XB1 and I assume that's to do with either the controller adding immersion (developer came out and said the the PS4 version was his favourite for that very reason) or perhaps graphical superiority? Probably the former since developers are driving for parity theses days. Anyone want to enlighten me?
It's largely useless to compare the Metacritic score between different versions of the same game. The PS4 version has more reviews included in its score. No reviewer gave the game a lower score on the Xbox One considering the two versions are identical. It all depends on which reviews get included on each page. Some reviewers specify what platform their review is for and Metacritic will only include that score for that one platform. With only some scores being included for each version of the game, this creates a discrepancy. For example, there could be one guy who hated the game and just happened to be reviewing the XB1 version. Thus, his score would only be posted for the XB1 version of the game, bringing down the average compared to the others.
Good point. Though since more people own a PS4 that would make it more likely to be getting the worse scores.
I'm actually curious about what the game looks like on a PS3. I wouldn't actually *buy* it for PS3, of course. Unless it was $2 in a discount bin, for grins. I'll pick it up for PC, probably. Still, I wonder how much of the experience they managed to squeeze into 256MB of RAM...
Probably it looks about the same as the 360 version give or take some frames or tearing here and there. Its youtube, but it'll give you an idea of what it looks like and no the Ps3 has 512MB ram. I just picked a random part, so I don't know if there is any spoilers. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Those fps are not good. looks like 20 or close.
Ill just grab it up on the pc. Screw consoles or their comparisons. Its like fighting a war between 2 small countries while the third country is the super power who no one can touch.
PS4 looks better as usual but I heard the game isn't very good anyway.
