Head to head comparison between Xbox One X and PS4 Pro versions of Assassin's Creed Origins.
Why the PRO colors so vibrant? Is that really how they each look?
I guess it depends on how the RGB is set on each system. It's possible the Xbox One X isn't using the same RGB range.
Gamingbolt isn't exactly saying much here that we don't already know= X looks and performs better in every category as DF already confirmed, the caveat is it's not as noticeable compared to other comparisons. No big deal, it's a huge heavily optimized game and they both look great.
@4Show Don't spread lies they said it looks slightly better with clearer shadows but performance was the same over both systems...
@TFJWM - the resolution boost in Assassin's Creed is up to 100% in some cases. That isn't slightly better.
@Neonridr 96% actually but that is before checkerboard rendering which MS themselves admits is true 4k...That is why it is still only slightly better... Eye test proves it
@TFJWM - a 96% resolution boost is a crap ton of pixels. Nothing that you would notice on a standard TV, but on a 4K set it would make a fair difference.
@tfjwm it is not checkerboard rendered on the xbox one X as stated in the article
Well regardless of what numbers are being mentioned, we can SEE that there isnt much of a difference between the two. “There are 3 types of lies: lies, damned lies, and Statistics.” Mark Twain
@S2Killinit - by watching a compressed video feed most likely on a 1080p monitor you can see the differences?
A more helpful comparison would be a xbox one s vs xbox x comparison. They would sale more xbox x this way. Ps4 owners not gunna drop the investment especially if they bought a pro and see the minor differences. Vs the xbox one s you'd see just how much more powerful the xbox x is to the people who will buy it.
It would have a chance to push more sales but why would Gamingbolt care about that? This will get them more clicks...
Why not? That’s all people got was minor differences when they upgraded from PS4 to PS4 Pro yet they still spent the $400.
Might have they opposite effect when they see the differences are still marginal in that case as well.
But if Microsoft convince Xbox one S users they've gained nothing. They need to convince PS owners, and they need to convince multi-console owners to get games and services on their side.
Exactly KINGTHRASH the gap between the OG xbox one and X is huge then the Pro and X. And OG PS4 and Pro...
I wouldn't purchase X if i already have the pro, but i would purchase it if i was upgrading on either console, i would buy only PS exclusives for the Ps and all other games on the X, it has better everything.
I paid twenty bucks out of pocket for my PS4 pro thanks to a deal eb games had at launch. Traded in my regular PS4 and 10 games I didn't play anymore and 20 bucks cash and walked out with my Pro. I don't think I would've bothered if it wasn't such a sweet deal at the time. Consoles are getting pretty expensive. Anyway, I really like it and it looks and plays great. Hopefully the new XBOX owners out there like their shiny new system as much as I like my Pro! The games look pretty good on it!
Buying a games console is not an investment
I already got the Scorpio Edition along with the Pro for my 4K TV. Got to get the best of both worlds. Like the play anywhere with my PC to Xbox One X feature in certain games.
@jasonpugh........On a 4K tv differences are more than marginal from OG to Pro. Get over it. From 1080p to 2160 checkerboard, 1800p, 1600p, and even 1440p are more than minor differences. Also some games run smoother, have better texture filtering, and better AO. If you dont want a Pro dont buy it, but dont lie.
@kingthrash ... ok but this isn't Microsoft pushing these comparisons it's gamingbolt
Stop being cute. You know full-well that Microsoft pay the media and/or hold their families hostage.
It also depends on monitor your looking at this on? Are you using a 4K HDR monitor. That doesn't even put into play how compressed this video is.
They're crushed, slightly. It's the same problem Xbox One had in the beginning, though not as pronounced here. Xbox's colors resemble PCs more closely now, where it used to be the other way around. No more high contrast or crushed colors for Xbox.
"Why the PRO colors so vibrant? Is that really how they each look?" they're using the wrong colour gamma.
Well I like the PS4 better on this comparison lol
The colour gamma used in the X version looks far more natural. I don't have two TVs side by side to compare, but the PS4 Pro is either set to 2160p - YUV420 or 2160p - RGB. I don't know which one makes things look slightly more "vibrant" (if there's a difference at all), though. I know on the 4K TV I have, there's two different colour gamma settings - BT.1886 and ST2064 - and the latter punches up the colours more than the former (BT.1886 looks closer to the standard, more natural REC.709 that's utilized on 1080p displays). Either way, it's definitely a colour gamma setting from the source. It could be the RGB range setting, but you would see that in the black levels, which are pretty much identical in both versions shown in the video.
Right? Most be playing the Xbox One X version on a crappy tv. If not, no way is the extra $100 justifiable for supposedly better graphics. Introduce great exclusives and some Virtual Reality hardware and they may match the value of the PS4......and the PS4 Pro.
Better color and illumination in the PS4 version, sorry xbonex.
Don't think that's an Xbox One X issue bud
You tried, but the One X version is superior all around
Cause you say so? Looks like you're trying even harder than he is.
No look at DF's comparison and you'll see why the One X version is superior I'll give you a hint its cause its a much more powerful device
You did try, though. It's overcontrast or crushed colors. The OG Xbox One had this very problem in 2013 when everyone said Xbox looked more vibrant. In reality, this isn't the case at all. If you saw it on a screen, you wouldn't actually think that.
The problem wasn't the Xbox One, though... it was setting the wrong RGB mode, which should always match type of display you're using with the console (Limited for TVs which have a 16-235 range, and Full for computer monitors which have a 0-255 range). When you have the incorrect setting, the image will either look way too dark resulting in crushed blacks or way too washed out resulting in a milky-looking image.
Haha 🤣 Sorry masterfox- you're not winning this one
Of course it is..... lol
After this comment Masterfox, you would be best changing fox to baiter
I'm going through this game now running on my Pro on a 65 KS9000 and it looks amazing! Surprised I'm enjoying it as much as I am but yeah it doesn't look "good enough" or "okay" it looks AMAZING on the Pro and as I've stated before amazing is good enough for me at this juncture!
im a little disappointed that neither system can give us 60 fps, oh well.
Still using an old laptop CPU is why.
I own an X and am enjoying everything it does for games! It is a fantastic console but lets face it, games on the Pro are going to look too....Just a little better on the X ;)
With you there. Got a Pro and a Scorpio. Both good consoles when you take the limitation of architecture in both. Never abandon Sony for foreseeable future with its line-up for 2018 and it's no worse now than it was at launch. But X is clearer. Space it's using is insane! Quite taken to Forza. It's not a sim in anyway though - nowhere near the intricacies of GTS. And people say how good Live is...I'm missing something cos I'm getting terrible throughput on my internet. Lucky if I get 20mb on my 300mb broadband. Another thread - off topic now!
id say its your side rather than msofts. I get 30-34mb/s throughput on my 36mb/s connection
Cheers DJStotty. Nothing else was struggling - but been like that since X was connected. Reset router and getting about 180-220 now.
Better resolution is a good thing bonus on X but those 4gb of Ram were unused.
The colors are much more vibrant on the Pro.
More vibrant does not necessarily mean better. The footage of the X version looks more natural. My guess is that there’s a colour gamma setting on the Pro that is set different than the X.
It does look better especially if this game is in HDR which is supposed to make colors look bright & vibrant not bland & washed out..
It does not look better to my eye. It’s a shame people think a properly colour-caibrated image looks worse than some oversaturated/high contrast mess.
Been playing on the base PS4 and it looks fantastic and weirdly I'm enjoying it even without the extra resolution, who would have thought it possible. Ubi did a great job making a beautiful world. The differences in the comparison here for the premium consoles is marginal, bone x may have some technical advantages but its clear from the video its nothing major.
See thats what.. A PS4 owner wont quickly shift to the Pro becoz the diff aint much.. But OG xbox one owners will want to shift to the X since the gap is huge.. So if X makes good no. Its for this very reason... The diff between Pro and X aint huge either but fanboys with over hype it and talk false trying to prove that X produces realism gfx.. Anyways let the Xboys have their moment..
The difference will get even bigger overtime. Shouldn't matter if visuals aren't important to you. Once Sony releases it's exclusives we will hear nothing but how much better they look over anything on the X until MS announces it's exclusives of course.
you ar eright,also hamburgerhill when the exclusives are out on ps4 and the pro all those will look better then 3rd party enchant for the X....so ya if you only have xbox i think you will lose a lot of great games...and if you say it is not true i dont belive you are here for the games....
keep dreaming hAMBURGERHILL.. Until MS announces its exclusive.... lol! such pity... and the difference wont get bigger .... "Once Sony releases it's exclusives we will hear nothing" Really?? do u even read what you write?? Just becoz nobody cares about xbox exclusives doesn't mean you gonna throw that on PS exclusives...
it looks literally the same to me...
Why is there no PS4 v xbox1 comparison. This is what most people will ever have. I feel they use x1x purely to win arguments
Lmao! So is that the issue you have? You want them to use the vanilla comparison so you can 'win'?
gangsta its funny how people like you forget about the og xbox once once the release of X... such a shame!!
Exactly when did I forget about the og Xbox?
Got this on the pro my bro got it on the x he said he likes the look of the pro colors better tbh thay look the same both look great just enjoy it on whatever you have there is not much in it
I don't see a leap the game looks the same to me I mean when they did a side by side of Forza 7 on both Xbox One and Xbox One X I didn't see a huge leap either it looks the same.
How am I supposed to tell anything from this video? When will people realize that compressed video is not a good way to compare graphics.
Well to actually notice some sort of a leap I guess you need to lick digital foundry's ass and asked them to show you every frame of the full game zoomed in at 300%...the game is the same on both consoles..just enjoy it and that's that....now I'm going back to dead nation ahah ye I still play it =)
actually if you look at more then 1 game you will see a 50 to 100% increase on the xbox one x. a game here and there not reaching its peak at launch is expected, games are getting patched and some will look better the others but that will change over time and games will look better and better on the x. instead of nitpicking how the difference in assassins creed isnt as much as wolfenstein 2 or others people who are diehard sony guys should be asking sony wtf? is up with the pro, whats its purpose other then a res bump
