Wow. 1800p vs 1080p......i was told the difference would be negligible, but i’m sorry, 720p worth of resolution is not negligible

sazselesbon215d ago

This is what happens when you more than double the resolution.

Sonic_Vs_Mario214d ago

"Wow, 35fps vs. 55fps."

Only if you want a stuttering experience. I rather play locked at 30fps with fluent gameplay

Aenea215d ago

Sure, this game is the definitive power difference test! /s

One X is more powerful, devs can make silly decisions and/or support a console less/worse than on another, big whoop, just move on!

Obscure_Observer214d ago

@Aenea

"One X is more powerful, devs can make silly decisions and/or support a console less/worse than on another, big whoop, just move on!"

Is that so? According to you, devs are supposed to give better for support the console with the larger install base, no? I could swear that you said that Bungie would give the PS4 Pro the better treatment. Native 4K on the X vs Checkerboard 4K on PS4 Pro must have gotten you disappointed.

Aenea213d ago

@obscure

Huh? What are you on about?

Where did I say such silly things? I don't say crap like that, I leave that for the crazed fans.
When people were grabbing pitchforks because Bungie didn't say anything about One X support for Destiny 2 I said that people needed to relax and that I was sure they would do the best they can, I even compared it to the Battlefield 1 situation the year before where DICE wasn't saying anything upfront if and what improvements the Pro version had. Turned out I was right all along, huh? While you probably were the one who was willing to boycott the game entirely upfront...

Thing is tho, devs don't always support all consoles equally and I know you're an Xbox fan but isn't it weird there are no differences between the X1 and PS4? And isn't it also weird that the upgrade the Pro gets is just from 900p to 1080p over the base PS4? Does that make much sense to you? Tells me they just didn't optimise it so well for the PS4 family of consoles. Heck, even makes me wonder if they couldn't have gotten more out of the X1 and One X as well if they put their minds at it!

TankCrossing215d ago

It isn't "720p worth of resolution". It is far far more.

Belinker300214d ago

This is a game where frame rate is better than resolution.The grim setting and stylised film grain in visuals don't lend well to higher resolutions

XboneX doesn't have 60fps mode like Pro. But Pro is more stable in 30fps mode than XboneX. Btw. Patch 1.03 on Pro downgraded res from 1260p to 1080p

TankCrossing215d ago

Stop calling it 1080p. It is "very dynamic 4k". Thanks.

Tis good to recognise that they're both full of crap.

Lokii215d ago

Ps4 pro is the true beast

TheCommentator215d ago

If you consider that an informal definition of a beast is, "an objectionable or unpleasant person or thing," then I totally agree with you. If you're talking about power... LOL.

KionicWarlord222215d ago

Another knockout blow by DA X.

Da hits just keep coming.

morganfell215d ago

PC True 4K 60+ FPS. I thought the X was a 4K machine. Looks like it isn't.

DA X and it's fake 4K knocked out by PC. Da hits just keep coming.

TankCrossing215d ago

PC has been his rock since the X came out. He was quite satisfied with his PS4 until then lol.

morganfell215d ago (Edited 215d ago )

No, gaming is my rock. The PC is just the rock I use to hit people with that think resolution matters more than anything. I could actually care less. But since you insist on lying to yourself about what is superior, I decided to enlighten you. Apparently the truth hurts. Well...good.

EDIT: Speaking of the PS4, think on this. Kratos wiped out the toughest gods on Olympus. He doesn't give two craps about 4k and neither will the fans buying God of War.

EDIT 2: Since you are big Xbox fans, help me out. I have two Xbox One S consoles here. One is a dust magnet and the other is a glorified Amazon Prime Video machine. Point me in the direction of a true Xbox exclusive game to play. Oh wait...there aren't any because they are also on PC. Yeah, the PC. You know, the device you love to brag about with Play Anywhere. I guess Play Anywhere is no longer a rock for you.

TankCrossing215d ago (Edited 215d ago )

See? Pretty much said it himself. He uses PC as a "rock to hit people with" cos he sees people enjoying a console, and feels a need to attack them.

Precious.

dreadz74215d ago

Except not even gtx 1080ti runs this game @ 60fps . @ 4k it runs roughly 40fps on gtx 1080ti..

BigWan78215d ago

@morganfell is the “im gonna go get my BIG BROTHER” kid when he’s in a fight...

He bragged about PS4 horsepower day in and day out... once the One X dropped... he runs to PC..

noticed he never brought up pc or even talked about playing games on pc until the one x came out...

but whatever...🤷🏾‍ ♂️

Legacy212215d ago

@Morgan aren't u the same guy who would shout from the roof top when a game was 900p vs 1080p on base Xbox and playstation and when people said they just cared about games and not resolution you would slam their opinion. Such a hypocrite. Let me guess your one of the guys who have a "super pc" but play all your multiplats on your base ps4. Lol too rich

morganfell215d ago

Nope

nope

and nope.

I love dealing with assumptive people that run faster when they think they are right so I can watch them take a header. Well down you go.

I began my gaming on the PC. Yet I buy a lot of games on the PS4 but the reason I buy more PC titles now has nothing to do with what you think and I actually had a fairly lengthy discussion on this site about the matter with an Xbox supporter long before the X1X appeared. Things for me are about convenience and I began to buy more PC titles when I picked up a Nvidia Shield TV.

Now I can stream my games from my PC to the living room and play them with a controller without the need to have my PC in the living room. I am not limited to Steam games as I was with the Steam Link. So you see it has nothing to do with either the PS4 or the X1. So there you are. Have some water with that wrong sandwich or you'll choke. But you made it so you get to eat it.

Once again, and as usual, you were wrong in your assumptions.

And for the record I still think the PS4 is a far superior gaming platform to anything MS has produced including the X1X. If resolution is all you have to hang your hat on then you have a great deal to learn about gaming. And you do have much to learn. There is a lot more than resolution that matters. Capabilities like Share Play blow Redmond completely out of the water. It is just one thing Sony has done to build a far superior community. You do not build games around your machine but rather you build a machine around your games. Its always been about the games. MS and its core supporters fail to see this yet cannot understand the pain they feel from being game poor.

I do not feel the need to attack people but rather defend against the mountain of disinformation from a group of bullies that have an extremely narrow view of the game community and what matters. No one on this board has demonstrated this more than X1X supporters. And all without a single exclusive to play nor do they have the superior platform and I do not just mean the PC. As I said there is so much else that matters more than resolution.

But when you want to play the resolution game you are outclassed there too. The PC has your number.

Black0ut215d ago (Edited 215d ago )

I'm honestly not sure if youre trying to convince yourself or others on here morgan. It's quite sad.

Edit: but of course you bring up your super duper $5k pc rig in an article about the pro vs x. You're no better than Jaguar

TankCrossing215d ago (Edited 215d ago )

This is my favourite bit:

"MS and its core supporters fail to see this yet cannot understand the pain they feel".

The guy actually thinks people using the Xbox are suffering pain lol.

Then follows that jem with another platinum piece...

"I do not feel the need to attack people but rather defend against the mountain of disinformation from a group of bullies that have an extremely narrow view of the game community and what matters."

Defend against exactly what??...Kionic didn't leave any disinformation, he didn't bully anyone, he left a comment about as commmen as the cold by N4G standards. But then you admittedly uses PC to attack him.

How embarrassing.

Obscure_Observer214d ago

The topic is about Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro and insecure people feel the need to bring the PC into discussion trying to donwplay the X while making damage control for the PS4 Pro. Lol.

Obscure_Observer214d ago (Edited 214d ago )

@morganfell

Hmm... so you STILL have two Xbox One consoles AND a powerful PC and now is asking about "true" Xbox One exclusives? I think you should ask yourself that question before asking anybody else because... i could swear that you were talking about the definition of insanity just other day.

I could be wrong though.

morganfell214d ago

@Obscure. I purchased those at the same time when the MC collection came out to run coop in the house when friends came over. And I love HALO....or rather I loved HALO before 343 decided they needed to try and destroy everything Bungie had built and make Call of HALO. I also played Quantum Break and ReCore. Other than that....dust on one and the other is used to stream Amazon Prime in another room. That's it. So you see that is hardly the same thing, you fail to comprehend again what happened because you made an assumption in stead of gathering facts. Reminds me of Redmond chasing power because they assumed that was the path to victory. Or how last gen they dumped their core gamers to chase casuals because they thought that was the solution.

aawells07214d ago

Yeah but you dont have the PC to do that. Not many do. Agree or not its still my opinion and it can't be changed.

morganfell214d ago

"Yeah but you dont have the PC to do that. "

Who doesn't have the PC to do what?

ShinnokDrako215d ago (Edited 215d ago )

When a console that is praised to be so powerful (X) underdelivers... is that a knockout? Ok. They had to sponsorize it as "fake 4K native console", since 90% of the games there aren't 4K native.
Weren't the Xbone fanboys the ones that said "resolution doesn't matter" and now they bark like happy dogs when a game has more res on the X than on the PS4? Not because of that fact, only because it's another "my console has more res than yours".

EDIT: and by the way, PC > Xbone X anyway, that's a real knockout. I don't mention the PS4 because of course, on multiplats, PC is better for sure. But at least there are gorgeous exclusives, something unknown on planet X.

shaggy2303214d ago

"But at least there are gorgeous exclusives, something unknown on planet X"

The majority of people don't buy exclusives, the vast majority of people buy multiplatform games, games like COD, BF1, Assassins Creed etc.

Just look at the most bought games for the PS4 from last year, only one game is an exclusive.

1.Call of Duty: WWII
2.Destiny 2
3.Friday the 13th
4.Horizon: Zero Dawn
5.Grand Theft Auto V
6.NBA 2K18
7.Rocket League
8.Minecraft
9.Madden NFL 18
10.Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands

Now I admit, that one exclusive is a fucking awesome exclusive, but its still only one. When I see the Sony fans on hear shouting from the rooftops about how many exclusives the PS4 had, its a little depressing that they don't actually buy them, at least not enough to make it into the top ten anyway.

Aenea215d ago

Huh, I forgot you even still existed on this site, perhaps the positive One X articles are becoming less and less....

Just a quick looksie confirmed that you've not posted for over a month, interesting, the positive X news has been lacking then it seems!

KionicWarlord222215d ago

Ive been playing games.

You should try it sometimes.

Tazzy214d ago

DA X it would be THE X and what hits keep coming??? Games from the original Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One with outdated game engines thats what you have for the Xbox One X and you don't much about technology I mean you hype the Xbox One X BUT.... its a more powerful console of course its going to run those older games good. The first Unreal game is an old game on an outdated game engine that game would run waaaaaaaaaaay better on PC using a GTX 1080ti graphics card compared to a weaker GTX card do you understand how it works now???

There sub clearly a difference. But for PS4Pro owners it’s hardly a $500 difference.

BigWan78215d ago

good thing its only a $100 difference...

TyrellCorp215d ago

So since I already own a PS4 Pro, a 1X will only cost me a $100? I had no idea! /s

fathertime4464215d ago

@Tyrell
Nice that ya own a pro, guys probably referring to the 100 difference if ya are going to buy one. Now saying another 500 or even saying 100 on top of another 400 could imply ownership of said ps4 pro. However 100 more simply implies a decision between the two

BigWan78215d ago

thank u fathertime4464 for that... much appreciated

Aenea215d ago

He probably meant to say "... hardly worth a $500 investment" which it would be for anyone already owning a current gen console, let alone a PS4 Pro...

Graphics on the pro are not as good as graphics on the one x and it does not matter.

It did not matter when graphics on the Xbox one were not as good as the PS4. And when graphic on ps2 were not as good as graphics on Xbox, that did not matter either.

Graphics between PlayStation and Xbox each generation are so similar. They are like 90% the same and people make such a big deal out of the hard to notice 10% deviation that favoured PS4 earlier and now favours one x.

I maintain these small differences do not matter becuase the majority of gamers did not choose PS4 over Xbox one this generation due to PS4’s better graphics (at the time). They chose PS4 over Xbox one because:

1. It was focused on games - not forced always online, media/TV Kinect box.

2. It costed $100 less.

3. Sony has more 1st party studios and 3rd party Japanese support and therefore have more high quality games like Neir, Nioh, Bloodborne, Persona 5, that do not come to Xbox in addition to exclusives games and franchises only found on PlayStation like Uncharted, The last of us, God of War, The last guardian, Gran Turismo etc.

4. Sony’s reputation for creating new franchises and games. Like last generation uncharted, infamous, heavy rain, journey, The last of us were all new. This generation we’ve already seen new things like the order, bloodborn, days gone, Horizon zero dawn, Detroit become human, the new game by sucker punch (ghost of something) and a really high caliber looking Spider-Man game!

Sharky231215d ago

I totally agree with everything you said! Microsoft needs to make new ips with there own studios. They don’t need to buy exclusives! I still say not having a true exclusive hurts the Xbox! If you can play it on pc then if you have a pc that’s where your gonna play it! No need to get an Xbox. It’s plain and simple!

LoveSpuds215d ago

This is spot on chief, and Ninty are reinforcing that message with the strength of the Switch's popularity. Resolution is great, but it's isn't the determining factor for most gamers, good game design, interesting gameplay and solid art direction are all far more important to a games quality than technical prowess.

fathertime4464215d ago (Edited 215d ago )

Only the resolution was different between the ps4 and x1. There are many graphical and even fps differences between pro and x along side of the resolution gap

Aenea215d ago

If that idea makes you feel better about your $500 purchase, good for you!

fathertime4464214d ago

I feel great about both times I played 500. Og launch and for x. I still don't get why y'all think 500 is alot... how much you think ps5 is gonna set you back? Probably 5-6 hundred
