Some DOOM Nintendo Switch vs PS4 comparison screenshots have surfaced based on the Nintendo Direct Footage from yesterday.
Obligatory the downgrade is real post.
Ehhh on a bigger screen at 900p it's gonna look bad. And you know the footage is probably doctored up.
Happy that the switch is getting this. I don't notice much of a downgrade as far as the graphics go.
On the switches screen it will look awesome, hopefully the FPS is good also.
A bit of a downgrade (as to be expected) but I'm actually pretty impressed
Not bad at all, there is a difference but Switch owners will be happy with what they are getting imo.
This is one of those games that I feel will look and play better on the screen vs. the TV. I think a lot of the little downgrades will be more noticeable on a larger screen (like texture resolution).
Glad to see this game running on the switch. Looks horrible compared to the ps4 version, but at this point what do you expect? Great for switch owners i guess. This game was released may of 2016 so i def expect framerate to be solid. Im excited to see how the switch handles newer and more demanding games.
You can tell that it's a lower resolution and some textures are downgraded. Other than that it looks great!
Why is this necessary, if you see anything that's ported to the switch you're going to see a downgrade. Isn't that common sense at this point, I mean do we really need an article on it?
We need to know how bad the downgrade is in some cases there using entirely different engines.
I was very surprised by this announcement. Nintendo is really trying to get third party's on the switch. Which is great for the consumers. It looks good but definitely not as good as athe ps4 version. This game is prob going to be watched by other third parties, to see how it sells and how it actually runs on the switch.
I've almost bought Doom a few times recently but always held off thinking "next time" glad I waited, preordered on Switch today along with Wolfenstein II.
Should be interesting to see the price of the Switch version of Doom since you can get the PS4 version quite cheaply now and that is not second hand. In Australia, I can get Doom for $40 AUD ($32 USD) via PSN or on special (two for $40 AUD) at JB Hi FI at $20 AUD ($16 USD) on Bluray media. Doom for the PS4 and XB1 was released 13th May 2016 so for most consoles and Microsoft Windows it is an old game although IMHO it is a surprisingly fun game and that is coming from someone who normally has no interest in first person shooters.
GameStop has Doom listed at $59.99.
I got Doom on Amazon on Xbox one for $13.99 yes it was used but works great!
why even compare a home console game to a portable? its like comparing pc to ps4
But people say the Switch is a home console.
Because people still compare a home console to a PC. Your own post should've answered your own question.
yes but they're in two different leagues, seems unfair to compare them and them criticize the lesser spec'd portable for the game not being as good as the ps4 version.
@steveo123456 How are the PS4 and XB1 in different leagues to PCs? As I have said previously they all have the same X86_64 architecture and the XB1 does run a Windows 10 operating system which is run on about 30% of all PC's (Windows 7 is run on almost 50%). The PS4 does not run a Microsoft operating system but instead runs a variant of FreeBSD which is based on Unix of which Linux is an offshoot. I actually have a fairly powerful desktop PC which I built myself, however, I don't run a Microsoft operating system on it but a Linux based one instead. I do have a virtual machine that can run Windows 10 although I have not run it for over a year and see no compelling reason to run Windows 10 preferring my Linux distribution instead. Sure I cant run (or should I say I can't be bothered) the latest "Windows" games but that is my decision and pretty well any application you can run under Microsoft Windows I can run an equivalent Linux based one or a workaround and I am not just talking about home usage since I can do this in Enterprise conditions as well.
It may come as a surprise to you but you can compare the PS4 and XB1 to a PC since they all have X86_64 architecture. Sure a high-end PCs will outperform the PS4 and XB1 but most cheaper PC's sold today don't even come close to the overall performance those consoles. Don't believe me. Go to a store that sells PC's and look at the sales lineup. Most are laptops and while you can get laptops that are powerful (eg Alienware) they are expensive.
ps4 are the cheaper pc's sold today, basically, spec wise, you can see many videos on youtube of how to build a pc with the same power of the ps4 for a slightly higher price, 50$ higher, but in return can play destiny 2 @60 fps 1080p
When I say two different leagues, I meant that the ps4/xb1 are in a different league to the Switch, making the comparison unfair. When I used the analogy of PC to PS4, I meant a full blown maxed out gaming rig, costing a couple of thousand $, with at least two of the best gpus available, rather than PC in general. Again, making any comparison to a home console unfair Apologies, I didn't really get the point I was trying to make across very well
Not too shabby, and its compressed. Shows that the Switch packs more then enough to do the job.
Playing DOOM at 30fps... Lord.
Has it actually been confirmed to be that? I'm not doubting you simply that I haven't really seen much confirming the framerate yet.
