ThisGenGaming says "The Witcher 3 PS4 Pro update has arrived, and we have captured images of before and after the PS4 Pro patch. Here's how the PS4 Pro patched version looks to the non patched version."
Too hard to tell without a 4k tv, but can definitely see improvements.
Trust me, it's incredible. I've been waiting for this patch so that I can go through the story again. I popped it in last night to see if the update was there and I was blown away. The frame-rate seems pretty solid too. It looks way better than it did on my 4k. It doesn't look like it's native, but it looks DAMN good, really tough to tell the difference. I was comparing them to native on PC through the youtube app on the TV and you can tell the slight difference. CDPR did an amazing job and Im surprised they were able to squeeze that resolution out of a game that massive on a console. A true developer. Here we go again back into the world of man and monster!
Can concur. Got back on yesterday. It's definitely noticeable. I'm actually extremely impressed by was CDPR was able to do with this game considering the scale and the fact that it already looked great. Can't wait to what kind of wizardry they come up with on Cyberpunk 2077.
Very very good to know, thanks.
Hold on a sec... are you here to try and sell us 4K TVs? Because if you are, I think you just did right there ;-)
I too have been waiting for this patch so much so that when I got the Pro I wanted it. When I heard CDPR wasn't doing one I was bummed but when I read they were going fourth with it I was estatic! It looked good to begin with but now it's crystal clear. My wife even walked by and said "wow that really looks good!" These pics do nothing to convey how it looks on my 65 KS9000.
Cool. Cool. Getting an Xbox One X, So Im glad to hear that
It is marvelous and noticeable right away on a 4K TV. I played this game on the same TV I have now (KS8000) prior to the Pro patch and when I played the game again last night after the Pro patch, it is OMG eye-candy. I am checking the screenshots on my work computer now (non-4K monitor) and I will say it looks no where near as what I witnessed for myself last night. It is a really well done Pro patch and I highly recommend everyone to try for themselves if they have a Pro and a 4K TV. (Also a 1080P TV too, since it also supports supersampling, though I am unsure how that would compare to what I saw on my 4K TV) Another welcome thing is now the texts for the game are sharper and much easier to see/read. Overall, it really is like a brand new game to me. It made the game look like it was recently released IMHO.
The difference is clear on my 4k tv
lol, stop lying.You just happened to be browsing N4G on your giant 4K TV? I'm looking at it on my 4K monitor. barely any difference. with barely I mean no difference at all. Same draw distance. Textures don't look any sharper. Lighting looks just as good. Particle effects(looking at the fire) also barely any difference but need to see in motion to confirm. This is just a resolution boost. Nothing more.
Also obvious to see on my 4k tv. Check your eyes?
Just so you are aware, my Desktop Montior for browsing is a 40in Samsung 4k TV. So yeah, some of us just happen to be browsing on a 4K TV.
It's more than just a resolution boost and even if it was just a resolution boost that's awesome. Resolution boost is why we have 4K TVs
Someone yet again doesn't take to time to actually look at the details nor actually plays it. Yet we are discussing screen shots. Like with any game in 4k, pixel shimmering is completely gone. No more jaggies (which you could see immediately if you'd actually zoom into those edges). And then there is simple the higher details resolving textures.
I have a PC hooked up to a 4k tv. But you know, just instantly react with a "lol, stop lying."
Think you need a new monitor. I have my TV connected to a 55" 4K TV. Even though there is not a massive difference. But the difference is noticeable.
@ morganfell, Maybe he was referring to the actual game...on his PS4 Pro and 4K TV...not the screen shots.
"Leave those home channel monitors along get you a view sonic or a dell bro u got robbed its a difference you played yourself" dj khaled voice
Nice to see lots of people want better performance.
U don't have 4k sorry .My Lg oled says wowwww!!!!!!!!!!
pro performs better and has better games .. thnx Moldy
@morganfell - I hope you don't sit like 2-3 feet away from that thing like most of us do with conventional computer monitors :P Otherwise show me your bottle-top glasses ;)
@Neon, Ha ha no glasses but yeah, about 3 feet. Its a Samsung 7000FXZA and so far no side effects...so far... @smooch, No that isn't what he meant. Ne said, "browsing N4G on your giant 4K TV" The key word is browsing. Not playing a game. Browsing.
Clear as day on my 5k iMac screen too. Interested to see how the one x patch compares...
Saw no difference with these screenshots for some reason. But I just looked at some digital foundry shots. I can definitely see a difference there. The image looks quite a bit sharper. Although like I said. It doesn't have the 4K Assets.
I’m sure some trickery will have been used particularly given the sheer size of this game, but it looks great nonetheless. Good to play a great game looking better than ever.
"though the base assets - including art quality - look to be the same as the game running on the standard PlayStation 4" http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... Oww... guess I was right. No 4K assets. I was wrong about there being no difference I couldn't see it from these screenshots but I can definitely see it from the DF shots. Images do look sharper but like I originally said there are no 4K assets. Everything looks the same but a bit sharper. No extra details or effects.
Doesn't need to. Assets are high enough. Watch this https://www.youtube.com/wat... and see the details which pop out all of a sudden which weren't there before.
looks the same to me.. I'm looking at it on a 4K monitor. It appears they just upped the resolution with no actual 4K assets. Hopefully Xbox One X gets different treatment.
And this is an example of a troll folks. That may need glasses.
Nah you're delusional.
So sad that he feels he needs to lie. It must be upseting for him to see that the Pro is capable of this
Looks great on the Pro with the patch. I don't have the PS4 Pro but hopefully the XB1X system that I'm getting will see even bigger improvements over the standard PS4 and XB1.
"actual 4K assets" isn't a real thing. Go home, you're drunk.
with 4K assets I mean 4K textures. Which this clearly doesn't have. Otherwise you would immediately be able to see the difference. Just like Tomb Raider. Wait for Digital Foundry to get on this and prove me right. Ya'll sony fans are looking desperate right now.
yup, No 4k assets, like I said. " though the base assets - including art quality - look to be the same as the game running on the standard PlayStation 4. " http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
It is... but Im not taking his side :P
Q: How much memory do you suppose a 4096x4096 texture takes up? A: 64MB of VRAM and 64MB of system RAM. Q: How many textures are in a given scene? A: A LOT. With "4k textures", you could have as many as 125 textures in 8GB of VRAM, assuming you leave nothing for the actual frame buffer, bumpmapping, or anything else the GPU needs its memory for. How much VRAM do you think the PS4 or XB1 actually have? haha, good Lord. All that article says is that they didn't improve the assets in the 4K patch. That doesn't mean "4k textures" is a thing or an option. Thats asinine. Of course having textures with higher than what you have in the 1080p version of the game would look even better, but so would better textures in a 1080p game. Why do DVDs @ 480p look so real? You're literally looking at a 480p texture. Unbelievable.
Textures are improved as shown in other places. They might have been there all along but have never resolved in its full resolution. This usually happens dynamically. Not all textures need to be 4K; this is overkill; and they include multiple resolutions. It really depends on the engine and power which one gets resolved in game. It looks stark improved over the standard PS4 version.
mystogan i bet you gonna Praise X for sure even if it has no differences... i am waiting for the X to release to prove so many "X gonna tear everyone apart" fanboys how wrong they are .
Lol we already seen some Xbox One X comparisons. In rise of the tomb raider. The X version looks night and day compared to PS4 Pro. It even looks better than the PC version. But admittedly that might be because PC didn't have the 4K assets.
mystogan "Lol we already seen some Xbox One X comparisons. In rise of the tomb raider. The X version looks night and day compared to PS4 Pro. " LOL! and you proved me right... You guys never learn... Good that you found vast difference between the Pro and the X.. Well its Not true... A few difference here and there may be but nothing ground breaking but you gonna exaggerate...
this is why people hate Microsoft, "4k assets" is such a stupid term. The assets already in the game are high enough quality to look great in 4k already. I swear people think games are just big giant textures.
No such thing as 4k assets/textures....
HDR or nah?
I just relized yesterday that Infamous Second Son has HDR. I had no idea that was included. I have to say, more than resolution, this is where its at. Resolution is one thing but I think there is so much inspired artwork that we missing out on because we don't have a compatible set.
I want 1080HDR. 4K can suck a fat one.
The game just looked blurry on larger 4K TV's but with this update its extremely sharp, hard to tell the difference from a native 4K image.
I'll wait for Digital Foundry's take, thanks.
Can't wait for it on the x1x
Salivating for 3rd party games, MS fans are a strange bunch.
And you just can't let any opinion for xbox go huh? How about this, your delusional in thinking sony has good online on the ps4, been hacked what about 8 times now. See it's easy to sling mud, just let him be excited for the system he enjoys, you sony fanboys are some of the worst.
A company that releases dodgey tech (RROD), doesn't support it's own consoles throughout a generation, a greedy manipulative company that attempts to monopolize any industry the participate in. Sounds like the kind of company I'd support /s
Yep and sony has stolen ideas from tons of companies. If you really want to start a war in this thread for no reason go ahead, but neither company is above reproach, just let people enjoy the system they like. Does like sony pay you for every good comment you say about them or something? But food for thought, sony has been hacked and lost customer info, stole the dualshock controller idea and was in a lawsuit for 7 years, copied off of achievements from xbox, copied party system from xbox, copied the wii with the move, and copied the kinect with the eyetoy. So like I said both companies suck in their own rights.
meka2611 - Sony introduced dual analogue sticks first, the rumble feature was what got them I courts. Achievements, Party features all that was in PC first. The Eyetiy actually released on PS2, way before Kinect was even spoken about. And if you improve on something (move), why wouldn't you release it? A 7 word comment about the X in a Ps4 thread and you call Sony fans the worst? You're just working yourself up lol, relax and enjoy whatever system you play on.
Almost impossible to see any difference on the captures this site has done. If you go to Digital Foundry's early look then you can clearly see the differences. Hopefully Digital Foundry will upload a 4K video showcasing it soon.
How can you not see the differences? Clearly in this image for example, you can see the sharper colors and better textures side by side. You're kinda not doing the patch justice by saying false stuff like that. I mean anyone can clearly see it unless they are trolling. http://thisgengaming.com/wp...
I don't see it.
@Mystogan Look at the boots for example. Colors are way different.
How can you say it's clearly in that image. My face is almost up in the screen looking for differences and besides some slights color difference there is nothing. But if you look at the images Digital Foundry have you can clearly see there is a difference. But not on your image or the others on this article. Here's Digital Foundry's article. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
@DiceAndRice I dont think those pictures show the difference clearly. I see some small differences, but if you were to hold those two pictures up to my head and ask me which was PS4/PS4Pro, it would be a coinflip.
These pics don't do the game justice. Looks very good!
Honestly I didn't notice to much of a difference when I tried it last night. It did look a little bit cleaner but overall I didn't notice much. To be far I was in the middle of the ocean without much to look at so maybe when I get to a town I'll see the improvements. I would have much rather preferred 60fps at 1080 or some checkerboard. TW3 desperately needs a performance buff over anything else.
I hope they do more than resolution boost on Xbox One X. This game already looks amazing on all current hardware. It will melt our eyes off on Xbox One X if they take advantage of the hardware.
increase draw distance and a slight texture update but is that worth the unstable 30 frames? if I only own the PS4 pro I would have taken an increased frames over this slight update but I guess it's a good thing I have a high-end rig so I comprise nothing and mod support to push the game past it's limits https://www.youtube.com/wat...
You are totally right!Even the standard PS4 haves better performance than the PS4 Pro version.And with Boost mode thies game used to run lock 30fps something that stop happening after this patch. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
"If you would only own a Pro"....you would probably understand. It's a petty it drops to 29fps in some really rare occasions, but a full 2160pCB is quite an achievement and the way I'd prefer it in a game like this.
Well im seeing 25fps in the bog zone so stop saying it only drops to 29fps on the PS4 Pro.I have one and i know what im talking its not only in the Bog were you feel the jerkiness of the framerate on the PS4 Pro.
Ju---- I don't get your comment I said if I only owned a PS4 which I own more than one platforms but as I was saying an increase in frames over this update is something I would take rather than the increase in draw distance
So how comes that you don't mention Novigrad where it runs actually construction 30fps while the slim tanks to 25? Really, stop whining, people.
