Final Fantasy XV has finally received a brand new update today that adds support for the Xbox One X.
I can notice a difference even on my 1080p monitor, not sure why other than the XB1X clearly has better draw distance but in 4K those differences will be even greater. But even close up like the yellow truck the grill is much more defined. This is how comparaisons should be in the fact they are using the same TV settings and exact same scenes.
No denying X version definitely looks Sharper - a lot better shadows. best looking version. As expected.
@Cupofjoe You mean NVidia 1080 GPU not PC. Have you noticed when talking about the consoles we clarify what is being talking about (Xbox X or Pro not a broad Xbox or PS4 because that would false) but, for some reason PC gamers us this broad term that includes every PC, most which can barely keep up with the base consoles. So I think maybe PC gamers should be honest with your actual statements as well. I would hate for you to be misconstrued as actually believing most gaming rigs will run graphically better than X or even Pro. So let's hear it, say it truthfully : PC NVidia 1080 soon (better knowns as less than 2% of actual gaming rigs)
Well i have a 1080 so
That is why I am getting Kingdom Heart 3 on the X.
The lime green box should look horrid as usual next to all those awesome PS2, PS3 and PS4 copies of the previous games in the series and I bet you want it no other way. :) I kid I kid, you clearly have never played the others. So while Xbox fans are delighted again to be getting a beloved franchise of other consoles for the first time, I'm sitting here praying to the Japanese dev gods that its not the utter downfall of another of my beloved game franchises like what happened when Resident Evil or Final Fantasy first came to Xbox and have been sucking hard since.
@Andrew Digital has no box :) But yeah I bought MGSV on Xbox and FFXV on Xbox and will be buying KH3 on Xbox (if it ends up coming), but they are all digital so they don't mess up the look of the previous sets haha
"The lime green box should look horrid as usual next to all those awesome PS2, PS3 and PS4 copies of the previous games" Easy solution, just swap out the sleeve from the green case and replace it in a case that say PS on it. You get the benefit of having it fitting in with in your nice collection with the added bonus of the "4K Ultra HD" logo on the box art itself. ☺
Higher resolution textures, already confirmed and attributed to the increased memory capacity.
@moldy I noticed no difference on my monitor they're basically the same at 1080p. Maybe at higher resolutions it's different but not at 1080p
Nah, I can see a *small difference on my cell phone at 1080p nothing massive though. A nice big 4K screen should show a big difference.
The floral pattern on his shirt is enough to tell me the Pro is inferior here.
Why do the comparison videos keep zooming in on objects ? When someone is playing the game, will they get a magnifying lens and do so ? Stick to the default magnification.
A lot of people view these videos in 1080p, and zooming is necessary to properly illustrate the differences in detail for those people.
OR it is so much of a difference that you need to increase the zoom by 400% just to be able to display how much extra detail there is for people with displays that can't handle it in full screen. 400% isn't an exaggeration, if you were wondering. You literally need to zoom in 400% if you want to map the pixels properly on a 1080p screen.
Because sometimes you can see the difference at default, but want to see how pronounced or conversely subtle the effect is by zooming in. I can tell that One X is slightly better, but I have no intentions on buying one for this game.
Becuase Youtube video compression is horrible so by zooming in you dedicate the entire video "budget" to just that part so it's much easier to see the difference, in person, you will see it much better because the image is not compressed.
Nobody plays zoomed in games. No doubt the x1 will be crisper but difference isn't huge or game breaking. There's absolutely no reason to rush out and buy a new console just to get zoomed in added effects
Looks very close to each other.
...but the X version clearly looks better.
The X looks better when you are standing one inch from your tv.
@XtreemGamer If tats what you have to tell yourself, but like the title says...the difference is big and the X version has now taken over as the best version on consoles.
I would hope so. Only took Xbox 4 years to catch up. PS5 will be beast
"Only took Xbox 4 years to catch up. PS5 will be beast" So it's bad that it took 4 years for MS to catch up, but it's ok that it's now going to take Sony 3 years to catch up?
Aconnellan. Sony’s ahead of the game. Look at all the titles they get. Xbox was weak from the start and it caused them to lose tons of games. PS5 is a next gen console. Technically XbX is a current gen system. So your point?
I actually stopped playing this around Chapter 9 because they were fixing a ton of the story and such so I guess this will be a good time to hop back in. Should see a big difference on this compared to my launch Xbox One.
Gearnuke, I've always played my games and never once analyzed them. Not even with OG PS4 and X1. You and DF have a good time with the microscopes but they look damn close to me. I did check out one DF video and found that 360 games still look like 360 games and OF Xbox games still look like OG XBOX games. Make sure to do a comparison video on Spiderman when it's out..
I'm shocked that the newer, more expensive and more powerful console has more improvements. 😱
Truly. What the heck is this world coming to?
PS4 Pro holds pretty well. X is too expensive for what it offers
This about sums it up for me. The X1X doesn't deliver enough for its price tag. MS is definitely going to need a vast library improvement for this thing to be worthwhile.
Xbox one x in this game have better res, higher quality shadows, better draw distance and detail level.
Just watched this on my 55 inch 4k hdr tv & the comparison is minute.XBOX version looks 20% clearer than the Pro,it's a no brainer that this is absolutely no deal breaker in the slightest.
Exactly and multiplatform games will be. I never gave DF videos the time of day during the PS4 and X1 first few years and I'm not going to now. It's kind of a sad state of mind if all your interest lies in "my version looks better in analysis ". And then throw it in the backkog. Try and stop and enjoy this hobby. Can't wait for HZD frozen wilds tomorrow.
Lol at disagrees. Where in the he'll are all you Xbox gamers that for years screamed Resolution doesn't matter, I like the controller, all my friends are on live. I'll tell ya where your at, your screaming OMG 4k textures, everything will look better, it's the graphics king of the world. Lol I'm out.
Well, I disagreed with you because I care about graphics AND I fully enjoy playing games. Those things aren't mutually exclusive. You made it sound like you can only do one. For example, I loved playing Horizon Zero Dawn but I also enjoyed how visually stunning it is. Likewise, I play all my multiplatform games on my PC and I enjoy the graphics and performance my PC is capable of in those games. The truth is, single console fanboys ALWAYS downplay the importance of graphics and performance when "their" console turns out to be weaker than other platforms. That's all most of these sour grapes comments are about.
@star child. At least you answered me so I appreciate that. Both can be done but I was just making a point of the hypocrisy the past few years. Just be real people. You can go back in my history and see posts like both versions like identical in motion..
Of course it is not a "deal breaker". It is just a better looking version of the game. You can still play it on your base PS4 if you don't care about the visual quality.
Better looking how? By a very small margin which is only noticeable by a microscope. Some folks here are acting as if the comparison is night & day or comparing 420p to 1080p & it's not.The comparison is absolutely minor.
@Elda Sorry, you definitely need glasses. I have several people here at work looking at it right now (most own a PS4) and not one used minor differences to describe the comparison. We all agree the differences are easily visible. Some cases very striking and obvious. Other times not as drastic but, clearly evident the X has cleaner graphical fidelty. But, not once did anyone ever here say anything like "minor" for the comparison.
"Better looking how? By a very small margin which is only noticeable by a microscope" LMAO. Pulling out the microscope from the war chest I see. 😂
@GNCFLYER "making a point of the hypocrisy the past few years. " You do realize the hypocrisy works both ways here. Strange how PS4 gamers are now taking a completely different view as well. But, accepting that argument would defeat your narrative of solely an Xbox fan issue.
in the end, you're still playing a rather unimpressive FF game. The game looks good on any system IMO, and the pro enhancements themselves came early enough that it was a good example of what was possible. Those graphical improvements didn't improve the game though, and they won't here. Decent enough game play overall, but a terrible story, and empty boring world to play in.
I thought it was fine I'm waiting for the Ignis dlc to dive back into it to play the 3 characters back story & looking forward to playing the dlc Comrades.I have a few complaints about the games as well especially the implementation of summons which I thought was done horribly wrong among other small things.The best looking FFXV so far is on the PC next year.
The only saving grace of this game was the actual game play IMO. It was pretty solid, and pretty fluid. Unfortunately, it just existed in a bland empty world, and was coupled with a poor story that IMO was completely botched compared to how the story seemed like it could be good from the movie. Going back to play the story DLC's doesn't interest me, because I feel those would have been more prudent to put in the actual game to begin with. That whole section where Noctis sleeps for many years, and you only hear a bit about what happened during that time was the kicker for me, and then suddenly, it was over, and it didn't settle well for me in the end. Graphically yeah, the game wasn't bad at all. But I feel it didn't set a higher bar for graphics like many FF games have in the past. Whether good or bad, you could always count on FF graphics being top of the ladder upon release. Anyhow, enjoy the DLC's, I won't judge you for wanting to play them.:)
Um... what's the X1X version running at? 20 fps? Why does this video open with the X1X version stuttering? Look at the pan over the back end of the car as the camera rises, and that horrid frame dropping. The resolution increase is not worth the trade off by any means.
I was a bit alarmed by that too. Watch it pan a bit further and you see similar extreme stuttering on the Pro while the X is smooth though. In both cases I suspect (or at least hope) it is a problem with the way it is captured, rather than a real performance problem. Time will tell.
Good detective work.
It definitely looks more crisp on the X.
Why do I keep seeing PS4 PRO vs. XBOX ONE X comparison? PS4 PRO vs. XBOX ONE S should be a better/fair/correct comparison no?
I don't even think the video is legit. Did you see how blurry the car was? I've never seen a PS4 game look like that. It's compressed or something.
It works out good for everyone then as FFXV looks awesome running on my Pro on my 65 inch Samsung KS9000. As does Assassins Creed Origins, Wolfenstein 2 and so on. Good times!
If you need to zoom then there nothing more to talk.
I could see the difference even without the zoom...but something tells me you were one of those PS gamers yelling from the roof tops the superiority of PS4 vs X1 when you could only see the difference through zooming 4 years ago
That argument is being used over and over to try and justify nothing. 4 year ago two consoles were launched one cost 499 and another 399. The problem started when the most expensive run games at 720, 792, 800p and even exclusives didnt run at 1080p. Microsoft start to use dynamic rez. Now, the same that didnt see the diferences of games running at 720p or 800p on big screens, are saying that games running at much, much higher rez on 4k tv have a huge diference, that the games are blurry, night and day diference....
None of what you said changes the fact that one could only see the difference once zoomed in...so why is it a issue now?
Fuck tons of damage control on the 1x OT at gaf right now. A couple guys with pros and 1x are pretty much saying it's not blowing away the pro. Hardcore x guys are saying BS or even though patches are out they aren't the right ones etc.. Not going to accept anything less than it blows everything away including PC. I mean the difference has to be no less than a Ps2 to PS4. Go check out the 1x OT thread, it's funny. Disclaimer. I'm sure there is a difference it's just not big enough for the hardcore x crowd.
Haha...I try my best to stay off of Gaf for a reason...looney doesnt even begin to cover it.
If you like blurry, just go and get the Pro...saving you a little bit money, so you can invest it to a few new games that also play blurry...deal of the day..month? "Play one blurry game" to get 2 new blurry games.
Im waiting for DF to do a headto head with AC: origins cause ms were touting that as being better this n that but when i played it at an event nothing was obviously better.
