Except the pixel count, both versions are almost twins.

DarkOcelet1187d ago

Unless you have two TV's standing right each other then you will barely notice the difference.

CDPR made an excellent job optimizing the game. Respect!

Why do people keep saying this?

" 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."

They are not twins.

Transistor1187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

Double post.


@ Transistor, Im sure CDPR will come out with a stability patch for X1, they did say they were working on that one up too last minute vs the PS4 which reviewers had out for a week or 2 before release.

If the X1's framerate stutters between 30-40fps I don't see a problem for them capping it at 30fps in the future.

Besides that and the native 1080p on PS4, they looks identical graphically.

Transistor1187d ago

The PS4 version seems to be capped at 30. Since, the Xbox One goes over and is not capped, it would seem the reason it's not capped at 30 is because of the attempt for "dynamic resolution".

It just makes sense.

super_bruno1187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

They should make the X1 version 900p and cap it at 30fps, problem solved.
Who cares about tittle screen and cutscenes at 1080p if the rest of the game is just 900p.


"They are not twins."

Yes they are, only that one of them is slightly faster ;)


"It's 40% more pixels from 900p to 1080p. That's a fact, regardless of your opinion."

44% to be more accurate, but the difference in reality is not significant. Most people can't tell the difference anyway. I remember seeing some people saying they could noticed the Dynamic resolution on the game, little they knew the game is 99% at 900p. People some times see what they want to see.

Transistor1187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

I completely think they should cap the resolution and frame rate on Xbox One.

Games that run at different resolutions are not twins, no matter how bad you want them to be.

It's 40% more pixels from 900p to 1080p. That's a fact, regardless of your opinion.

Absolutely, Fantastic game. Performance is also good.

Christopher1187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

720p video comparing games that run at 900p and higher...

Seems like a good idea.

Edit: Looks like it was YouTube processing.

DarkOcelet1187d ago

Then maybe we should stop comparing the game and start enjoying it?? :)

That sounds like an awesome idea.

gameseveryday1187d ago

Must have been processing!

It's now 1080p and 60fps!

700p1187d ago

because it is pretty much the same. The game looks great on everything.

gameseveryday1187d ago

@Transistor we did not see any stuttering issues during FMV sequences. Both versions were running silky smooth.

They are almost twins. Similar graphical assets, draw distances etc.

If 1080p really matters for you, go for the PS4 version but the Xbox One version is fantastic as well.

Transistor1187d ago (Edited 1187d ago )

No offense, but I don't think you know what your talking about when it comes to these things.

Gamersyde says the Xbox version stutters, Digital Foundry says it stutters and NXgamer says it stutters.

Gamingbolt says it's silky smooth.

They all have frame capturing tech, do you?

Svinya1187d ago

Teansistor - stfu and go away. Seriously. You contribute nothing. EVER.

frankdrebin721187d ago

@transistor it's a sad state of affAirs when you need a site that has frame capturing tech to Prove a point.
You are of course correct, no one here has that tech so in reality you argument is mute.

I own a ps4 but I think xbone looks better.

poor_cus_of_games1187d ago

Nah the ps4 version is sharper and has better colours and contrast.

xHeavYx1187d ago

Imaginary PS4s don't count.

Gamer19821187d ago

no you don't go away! Shoo!

MasterCornholio1187d ago

Only difference that i can see is that the framerate seems more steady with the PS4 version than the Xbox One version especially during the horse riding part.

But graphically they look almost the same.

Clown_Syndr0me1187d ago

Been playing since Saturday and still not found basic beast oil diagrsm. I have advanced ones but can't use them without the basics.
Does anyone know where it is?

buttclown1187d ago

I haven't found any but then again, i just got out of white orchard lol. Too busy running around to those stupid question marks. I did buy a few diagrams, and alas have no money to every repair anything but my sword

Clown_Syndr0me1187d ago

I found it about half an hour after writing this. Won't say where in fears of spoilers but it wasn't hard to find.
