at 0:50 mark xbox deforested version confirm ?????

tinynuggins1183d ago

Wow, they look identical. Very impressive, can't wait.

reynod1183d ago

Please just enjoy the game. Its awesome on all platforms. All these comparisons turn into fan wars in the end.

Transistor1183d ago (Edited 1183d ago )

Identical is a bit of a stretch.

"UPDATE 19/5/15 14:03: We've now had the opportunity to test the 1.01 patch on PlayStation 4, and can report that the FMV stuttering issue introduced in the Xbox One day one patch is much less of an issue on the Sony platform - video playback is much more consistent. Engine visual settings appear to be a match between the two consoles but curiously, the PS4 version does appear to run with a capped 30fps, giving a more consistent update than its Xbox One counterpart. We can also confirm native 1080p resolution throughout. We'll have head-to-head performance tests online as soon as possible."

Not quite identical.

AngelicIceDiamond1183d ago

Consoles hold up strongly against PC Ultra.

tinynuggins said looks, not performed. What you are referring to is performance.

"Engine visual settings appear to be a match between the two consoles "

This line from the update you posted back up what tinynuggins said.

I dont believe anything DF says after reading there comparisons this generation.

"Engine visual settings appear to be a match between the two consoles "

I'm sure they're talking about effects, the visuals are not identical since 1 displays in 1080p and the other does not.

These are not just made up numbers with no relevance.

BallsEye1183d ago (Edited 1183d ago )

Now as long as performance during battles etc is good
then I'm happy. Been in the game for just an hour on XBOX ONE and so far it's great! So xbox one version runs at average 35 and goes up to 40. ps4 is capped at 30 and never goes over it. Interesting. As for Eurogamer, funny they always favoured unlocked FPS in some multiplat games on sony console when XO was capped at 30. Now that XO has the edge, Eurogamer says 30 capped is better and delivers smoother experience.

Guys are blind if you disagree with sigfredod. Look at the video at 0:50 and at the bottom left those trees on the X1 are thinner. That's a night and day difference!

And this is dissapointing for PC owners. They should rate the PC version a 88. My rig is like 4 times stronger than PS4 and I get like 3% better graphics. I hate parity!

BeefCurtains1183d ago

Identical? What?! Clearly the PS4 version shows 312 blades of grass and the X1 only had 311! Then didn't you notice that the Ps4 version showed at least 3 or 4 more trees in the mountains in the distance.

JK - but seriously, all the versions look outstanding. I think the only thing the PC Version will have that consoles don't is 2k or 4K resolution if they have a good enough GPU. Otherwise, unless the story is somehow different across platforms, all gamers are in for a treat.

Pixelart1183d ago

I agree. There's barely any difference between them. There's been some massive parity going on here. PC should smash the PS4.. and PS4 should smash the X1. But going off this video there is stuff all difference .. at least if viewing at 1080p

They look very close indeed.

PC Ultra > PS4 > XBO

I think PS4 has slightly better lighting than XBO. PC Ultra looks slightly better all around.

We can conclude that all versions look really good, it all comes down to performance now.

umair_s511183d ago

Holy shit, they all look so good

Eterna1Ice1183d ago

Wow, turns out that PS4 and X1 versions don't have any music at all......

stiggs1183d ago

...and here come the kids.

ninjahunter1183d ago

I like to call it the industrial version.

They all look bloody great. Can we end this debate now?

sigfredod1183d ago

Big mistake on the video, should upload a new one

remixx1161183d ago

Damn, why are we still doing these.....


Looks great across all platforms! I have it on X1 and even at 900p there are no jaggies, they must have good AA

proudxgamer1183d ago

X1 is 1080! Nice try....but the FPS is what matters kiddo.

Man this and MKX I killing my time!

super_bruno1183d ago (Edited 1183d ago )

X1 version is not 1080p. Most of the time runs at 900p with the cutscenes running at 1080p.

the_dark_one1183d ago

no its not 1080p. its 900p with dynamic resolution to 1080p, but even then its only on cut scenes and the title screen

SgtSlaughter2121183d ago

Nah dude. It's 900p.

Not a big deal though. I have it on PS4 and my buddy has is on XB1. From what I can see, they look exceptionally close.

Don't kill me for this, but it did seem like the PS4 version ran a little smoother. Granted I saw different parts of the game on each console so it wasn't a perfect comparison. That might have been the reason. Who knows. Either way, the game looks great on all platforms.
