Here are several 1080p screenshots of the Planetside 2 beta on #PS4, showing how the formerly PC exclusive MMOFPS by Sony Online Entertainment looks on Sony's own console.
I do have an account on this game from when I tried (and failed catastrophically) to play this game almost two years ago now. If I download it, can I just use that profile on my PS4?
I know you can play cross server, so if that's the case I assume you will be able to use the same account. However I don't know for certain. I imagine they will, or already do, have a FAQ on their site with an answer to a question like this.
No cross platform play unfortunately. http://www.gamespot.com/art...
Wasn't this game promised to rival hign end PC when running on PS4 and this: http://www.cinemablend.com/... PLANETSIDE 2 FOR PS4 CONFIRMED AT 60FPS "We're running right now [at] 1080p, peaking over 60 frames per second. We still have a lot of optimization to do.” So why does the graphics look not so high end and what happened to the "peaking over 60fps" talk when it is only 30fps at the end? More promises and more failed from Sony just like The PSN plus version of Driveclub and H1Z1 "you will never have to pay for weapons and ammo". I love my PS4 but Sony tend to open their mouths too much with big promises that they can't keep time and time again. This is indefensible.
"This is indefensible." I guess you'd better get to work organizing a picket line. Good luck with that.
Out of all the things you say that make me laugh, "I love my PS4" had to be the best. You sure don't sound like you love it. I see you in PS4 threads all the time and it's always complaining, never praising.
Says the developer here.
@Bathyj Just because you love something doesn't mean you have like everything it does, you have a right to complain. I love my girlfriend and daughter but damn I moan about them alot!
@Bathyj , "You sure don't sound like you love it. I see you in PS4 threads all the time and it's always complaining, never praising." you are not looking hard enough. I never have issue with the PS4, as 1/2 of my game collection is on that system but I am simply making valid points of why Sony isn't keeping their words on a few titles that they promised or claim it will be something spectacular but ended up being the opposite. For Planetside 2, I was stroked when I heard this: http://n4g.com/news/1353472... PS4 offers visuals 'that rival high end gaming PCs,' says PlanetSide 2 dev if you check my history, I was excited by it last summer: http://n4g.com/news/1530610... PlanetSide 2 PS4 Confirmed To Run At 1080p, Targeting 60fps, Won't Drop Below 30fps No_Limit + 227d ago "Nice!!...Have to try this one out myself." #2 and this just a few days ago: http://n4g.com/news/1657947... No_Limit + 4d ago "Actually my most wanted game for the first 1/2 of 2015 is MLB 15 the Show..the best Sports series EVAR! Only on PS4! If you want to play the only baseball game in town, you'll need a PS4. Like I always say, If you limit yourself to a single console, you're cheating yourself. Actually, the top 3 games on the first half of 2015 are all reserved for my PS4 as I also have the Witcher 3 and Bloodborne preorder on PS4 as well." Happy now?
The only valid argument you have is the H1Z1 debacle, but Driveclub and Planetside 2 not so much. There is a reason they said the game was running at 60fps, and that reason is that it actually was running at 1080p 60fps. So let's wait until the game releases and see if it runs at 60fps. And if it doesn't, I hope they give the reason why not, maybe I'll understand. And as far as Driveclub goes, you know well enough the PlayStation Plus version is delayed for a good reason. Do you think they'd foreseen the network issues DC has been troubled with? It's only logical from a business standpoint to please the paying customer before giving it away for free you know (even if only partially). Just wait and you'll get the PS Plus version, but it's worth the buy if you ask me, especially for the price you can get it at right now.
There's no way it looks that good. Most of the PC footage doesn't even look that good.
If your PC is good enough it can look better than the PS4 version. I've seen direct screens of the PS4 and it really does look that way.
No that looks like PS4 gameplay.
How is the game? I know you played it. Is going to play like MAG to a degree meaning teamwork and command
I never played much of MAG, but you'll need a good deal of non-verbal communication if you want to succeed in a game with the scale of PlanetSide 2.
Definitely looks better on PC. That said, it is surely not that impressive looking regardless. Other than the some of the weapons, lighting and a few Character models the textures are pretty terrible, compared to other games so far this gen. Basically, graphics are hardly the reason to play this game, player counts are the main draw.
It does look that good. I'm jonesing for a damn beta code.
You and me both. :U
It actually dont look too bad! Deffo looks better on my PC, going by them pics ( I also get the benefit of 60FPS @1080P with most of my settings high). But If I dint own a custom rig, I could live with this version. Have fun, fellas!
One of the most level-headed responses I've seen.
So much for the promises of the the PS4 version being on the same level as the PC. Not even close.
No action screenshots aswell I see bad fps drops in the future
Sure you do.
Yeah people playing it on gaf are complaining about sub 20 fps and bad screen tearing during action. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... It's beta though so a lot can change before release.
I will say this looks on par with pc but the only difference is the aa has been turned down possibly to keep frames steady. As for pc even with sli gtx 670 overclocked, i5 3570k 4.5 16 gigs of ram maxed this game dips below 60fps during major gun fights so pc isnt a god. So the aa is the only difference Between pc and ps4 where pc is maxed If the rigs can handle it.
So much salt in this comment.
You can't be serious..? Do you even know what being salty means?
@KwietStorm Ignore him man he dosen't know what he's saying most of the time He's salty himself when someone criticizes a game he likes
No, Foxtrot, I get annoyed with people like you who are negative about nearly everything. 90% of your comments are of the negative, hateful variety. And you're not reacting to somebody else, you come out of the gate fresh being that way. I'm not the only one who has noticed that about you either. Yes, ironmonkey's comment is full of salt. He's always ultra defensive of the PS4 when it comes to comparisons with the PC. He continually tries to downplay the PC in his comments and it's just sad. Of course you two would defend him.
" I get annoyed with people like you who are negative about nearly everything. 90% of your comments are of the negative, hateful variety " Because you only look for those comments so you can make an argument. Anyone can do that, people do it all the time to different people so they have something to say to them in an argument. Besides says the guy who's just been marked recently for a "Personal Attack" Salty Salty Salty
It actually runs pretty smooth. It felt higher than 30fps to me.
"It felt higher than 30fps to me." I've heard lots of streamers say this. Some people were speculating that this beta build wasn't locked at 30 so maybe it does go higher.
Hm that's interesting. I know when I jump from Destiny to Battlefield or Warframe, I kind of have to re-learn my aiming, because even though Destiny doesn't drop frames, the difference is immediately noticeable. I noticed the same thing when going from Destiny to PS2. It just feels so much smoother or closer to my reaction.
I've never played this game, so whether its a 'quality' port or not doesn't change the fact that I'm excited to play it. My team has a good number of people that are looking forward to giving it a shot. Several of us were big MAG fans so this kinda brings that concept that we are looking for. Anyone interested in a good group of 18y.o. up people can check us out at http://digitalking.enjin.co... Been around for just under 2 years now.
Looks like a last gen game.
Its funny how in a beta from a game of sony everything must be already perfect, and run at perfect rez and frames, textures, BUT when is another game from the biggest franchise of another console that runs at 720P and the graphics are dated, there is no problem because the game isnt out yet.... and its a beta. Another week and another troll attack. Lets keep bashing the games from sony. I know, its better to talk big about how this and that will make the console stronger then to have games and play betas...
seems to be a lot of pc fans who are bitter, I can imagine them being extremely pissed in fact they always are, I would recommend them looking out for the next indiegala bundle for $1.99 including nostefaratu 1&2 whilst us PS4 gamers look forward to the next AAA title
I played this on MY pc and it did look better. But this is a beta and is 5gb in size. Wondering if they have left out a lot just to check the game is stable and fix bugs. Should be judged as full game. I could never really get into it. I would Prefer BF5 In space, other planets etc.
Honestly feels like the frames are higher than 30 to me. The only time it dropped on me was during a massive battle where we had everyone going at it in one area, and a ton of vehicles were in the area too. Other than that it was actually hard getting used to how clean it was moving in comparison to other titles. This is a beta, so the frame drop during the battle was expected.
