Surprise, Surprise they both look great.
BUT MY CONSOLE LOOKS BETTER no but seriously, the console versions of this game are top notch
Great job by Rocksteady to keep both console versions looking great. Too bad they didn't do the PC version. STILL thinking if I should just go ahead and get the PS4 version now because I don't know when the PC version will be fixed.
yeah they said like ''Hey f*k the PC version, lets make Money on the consoles'' pss will not support them again with this bs
idid the ps4 version and its awesome,feels solid all the way through and only had a couple og glitches. im just suprised how well it ran from day one,considering the mess pc version was in.
Get it on PS4 and wait for a Steam sale.
LOL, judging from the amount of disagrees, it seems like people here don't want me to get the PS4 version for whatever reason. But, my PS4 needs games so what the heck, I will get it tomorrow. Don't want to miss out on a great game. Thanks UKmilitia and Sktae-AK for the encouragement.
The fact is, the PS4 is a 44% higher res (1080 vs 900) with a slightly better framerate and slightly better texture streaming.
Minimal differences, PS4 version is a bit sharper and has slightly better performance.
@Meltic, yeah, to hell with them for wanting to make money. The nerve!
We all know you don't even have a PS4, no matter how hard you pretend. That's why you get the disagrees.
Some say the Xbox has the better color, but you can always tune the color saturation on your tv
PS4 looks 50% better obviously /jk XBO texture streaming seems to be a half a second slower (noticed on the scene with the guy's face on the floor), other than that they are identical. The different in resolution is not that apparent on this game.
PS4 version looks to be way sharper going by the thumbnail on the video above. If you watch the video though I can barely see a difference. In motion is where it counts!
What you see in the thumbnail is not because the difference in resolution, but because of the XBO having slower texture streaming time.
The PS4 is sharper, that's what the higher res does for the image, it sharpens it. And if you can tell from a Youtube video then you can definitely tell in real life where the difference is even more pronounced. Plus the PS4 has a slightly better framerate and slightly better texture streaming. I love how people like to down play this gens bigger technical differences yet last gens smaller technical difference were all blown out of proportion.
@dantesparda yes PS4 version does look slightly sharper which is expected since XBO resolution is 900p.
ive just spotted a MASSIVE DIFFERENCE!!! one says xbox one in the corner, the other says ps4 :)
Actually the REAL difference is the xbone version of Arkham Knight is native 900p while the PS4 version is native 1080p, so it's undisputable that the PS4 version looks better. This was all cutscenes, there is a more noticeable difference in gameplay, i think the framerate is more consistent on PS4, and the PS4 version is the least broken. The best version of Batman Arkham Knight is on PS4, pretty hard to deny that.
You can tell the Xbox One is a hair behind when the dead cop hits the ground. The face renders slower on Xbox One.
No you cannot tell they look the same.
Your name doesn't suggest that you would defend the Xbox One version. Oh wait.
I'm baffled that PS4 owners think there's a big difference Are we watching the same video?? It looks identical
Did someone say there was a "big difference", I'm a PS4 owner and I think the difference is marginal but it is in favor of PS4 as is the case with pretty much every multiplat.
No one said big, but there is definitely a difference, xbone is native 900p and PS4 is native 1080p. Some consider the difference between 1080p and 900p "big", some do not. If you want the best looking version of Arkham Knight on console go with the PS4. We have the numbers, there's no debate which one looks better, it's just a matter of how much. I remember those comparison videos of CoD Ghosts and Battlefield 4 and ppl trying to say both versions were identical, but it was bs - Ghosts was 720p on xbone and 1080p on PS4, cmon.
look like the xbox one looks blurry where its crispy on ps4 sharper details
Actually I agree with you there. Xbox one is slightly blurry but not too much. On and off
Both look really nice.If there is a difference then it is minimal.
Just like most games
Who cares? The games been out for a couple weeks now. I'm sure this sort of thing has circulated for awhile now. Don't see the newsworthiness of it tbh.
Some people need their eyes checked. Identical on both systems.
PS4 version looks little sharper, that's it
1080p looks quite a bit sharper than 900p unless you're sitting too far from the TV. Both looks awesome though and I definitely wouldn't base a console purchase decision on this game.
Everyone saying they look the same are blind... look at the thumbnail ffs, you can't tell me they look the same.
Or are the people saying there is a big difference blinded by bias ?
Not a big difference, just clearly noticeable when side by side. If played just on XB1, you won't even notice.
Is there a technical difference? Are both running at 1080?
"However, it's a familiar scenario in the resolution stakes, and we get an upscaled 1600x900 on Xbox One that causes more pixel-crawl on distant buildings than we see on PS4." http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
They both look great but the PS4 version is slightly sharper and the Xbox One version has some texture pop in.
@formanbradly Typical knee-jerk reaction. If you actually took the time to watch the video you would see that the thumbnail is not a proper representation of the graphical quality of the XBOX One. The author "cleverly" chose a moment in the video at which the XBOX One was still loading textures. The actual difference is much closer with a slight nod to the PS4 which displays a bit sharper of an image due to the higher native resolution.
Xb1 looks darker and stronger color in my opinion..it looks more real i believe....
I don't a thing different other than the lower resolution on the xbox.
Yeah um no thats called crushed blacks, something that the Xbox has never been able to handle and NO it doesn't ever look better in any situation, whereas the colors are natural in the PS4 version as they are supposed to look....
Exactly. To say they look identical is frankly ridiculous. The PS4 handles blacks much better than the Xbone , always has. Since Batman is such a dark game it doesn't take a genius to see the PS4 is the superior version.I think it's called fanboy goggles.
Nope. It's in a much lower resolution.
So here's 900p upscaled to 1080 vs native 1080p. And.....the difference is minimal and almost unnoticeable. Funny, because everyone supposedly can notice immediately in every ps4 vs x1 argument.
And the only people who don't notice a difference are all from the same camp.
I've got both systems and I can notice the difference in resolution when their is a difference. Does It make the games any less playable? No.
Having bad eyesight isn't a very good argument.
The graphical differences this gen have been smaller than ever (from an actual visual standpoint, not technical)
Thank God... for a moment I thought we weren't going to see any more "comparison" articles.
If you could pay less for the difference on the X1 what would be a fair price of the games vs ps4 $60 price?
I don't know, ps2 multiplats looked horrible compared to its competitors, textures looked dull and dry. I remember moving from Dreamcast to Ps2 and I was like these graphics are fugly texture wise, but that didn't impact the price at all.Xbox and gamecube multiplats looked better than the Ps2 version but still remained equal in price, it's not the devs fault
ok? the ps4 obviously looks cleaner. who ever's saying they both look identical is full of it. get real. not even trying to down the other you can obviously tell the difference.
Yup I can clearly see a blade of grass is sharper on PS4....
You should probably go get your eyes checked then cause everything looks sharper in the PS4 footage...
PS4 superior version coz lead developmen console unlike xbone ,1080P unlike xbone, exclusive DLC unlike xbone, less bugged version unlike xbone
Spoke proper England like I used to could.
Well, if you put the full screen with 1080p, you see the Xbone version is a bit blurry. For the rest it's the same.
I can't see any difference...
You can't see the difference because its running in Youtube quality.
Finally, a grahpics comparison showing the SAME parts from both consoles. So many stupid comparisons with one half on PS4, the OTHER half on XBOX. That's so retarded. This video has the same half being played for both. Only way you can actually compare.
Theres a difference in visual quality and the PS4 version has a lot of extras. Im having a lot of fun with my XB1 version still though...
they both look great and the same
Let´s have fun with this game, no matter which console, that's most important.
From the initial screen of the paused video you can see that the PS4 version looks much better. Look at the sharpness of details where you can see pores on the face compared to the Xbox that looks muted. I'm sure they both play well, but this being a graphics only comparison, there appears to be a clear winner to anyone with working eyes.
I see your point, but who plays a game by pausing it every second? When the game is playing they look nearly identical. I still never get this debate. I'd prefer a great game like borderlands which is nothing great visually to a game like Ryse which looks beautiful. To me personally, fun factor is what makes me play any game.
@asadachi Like I said above, what you see in the thumbnail is not because the difference in resolution, but because of the XBO having slower texture streaming time, which means textures load slower on XBO version. The link below is a screenshot of the same scene .02 seconds later, notice how textures already load on XBO version and the difference is really small with the PS4 version being slightly sharper. http://i.imgur.com/PyUoQKP....
Some people just don't get it. It's exactly as you say. If I could give you a smart bubble I would. Edit: have a intelligent bubble.
Come on we always knew that multiplats look better on PS4. Of course the Xbots gonna say "oh its only a little better" lol
