GB: "Our in-depth look at how the PS4 and PS4 PRO managed to deliver top notch looking exclusives from early 2016 till recently."
It's true, Xbox gamers can't stop talking about resolution & pixel counting. I have an X & PS4 exclusives still look better than almost everything offered in 4k on the X. Disappointing to see the same group who used to focus on games take up the argument that they once hated & now can only talk about 4k
Sony set up some really good policies that allowed their 1st party studios to produce these results. Microsoft and Sony don’t handle gaming the same way.
The low resolution of the base XBO didn’t do games justice. Now with XBOX enhancements you can put games like Halo 5, Quantum Break and GoW 4 up against anything Sony has to offer and they stand strong. Hell, if they patched up Ryse it would easily still be one of the best looking games of the generation.
I've played Ryse, QB and GoW 4 on PC with superior hardware to One X. No. Simply no. They fail in comparison to HZD, God of War, and Uncharted 4.
@Skull I own both a Pro and an Xbox One X. I have a subscription to GamePass so I'm able to play many of Microsoft's console exclusives. With that said I haven't found any game to be clon par with titles like God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn on the Xbox One X. It's not just resolution that makes PS4 exclusives look so good. It's many other graphical features as well. @Razzer Completely agree with you there.
And I own and have played all those Sony exclusives, they aren't any better looking. You're fanboying out to say that PS4 exclusives are in this whole other realm of graphical fidelity, it isn't remotely true.
"You're fanboying out to say that PS4 exclusives are in this whole other realm of graphical fidelity, it isn't remotely true." I didn't say they were "in this whole other realm of graphical fidelity". I said they were better looking than Xbox console exclusives on more powerful PCs. And they simply are. This is why Sony's studios are unmatched.
@Skull "You're fanboying out to say that PS4 exclusives are in this whole other realm of graphical fidelity, it isn't remotely true." And I own an Xbox One X and PS4 Pro so I can directly compare the exclusives that each has. There's no need to insult me just because I have a different opinion than yours. Thankfully being a multiconsole owner makes my opinion legitimate since I'm able to experience all that each platform has to offer. With that said I said "With that said I haven't found any game to be on par with titles like God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn on the Xbox One X. " Here's the meaning of "on par" "On (a) par with definition is - at the same level or standard as (someone or something else)." https://www.dictionary.com/... Now as you can see I clearly stated "not as good as" however I never specified how much better the games look which is what your implying. Your the only one who mentioned that by exaggerating what I've said. Hopefully that helps.
MS really owes its die hard fans some huge games... I think they care more about subscription numbers than games though...
They don't owe anyone anything, they keep buying xboxs out of some twisted loyalty instead of a better product, they have themselves to blame. It's like the xbox fans who always whine about the lack of Japanese games on Xbox...why are you buying xbox if you want diversity and Japanese games ...
I also own a Pro and an X. As much as I like them both, I will surely be getting RDR2 for the Pro. Image fidelity on both consoles is very good on the Sony 900E television. But the games library on the Pro is just so far superior I generally game there. I can't just walk away from Sony who has encouraged their 1st & 2nd party studios to take risks and create amazing games. Maybe MS will allow new studios they acquired to spread their wings some.
Does Xbox X owners even care? All I hear about is the power of X.
@Jesus Go change your diaper!
@JesusBuiltmyHotrod Or why do someone wants play with PS gamers if he bought an XB console...
I'd rather just give my hard-earned money to Sony since they keep giving me what I want.
Lol ok. I have a One X and a PS4 Pro running on a 65” OLED 4k HDR screen. Not only does the One X make literally every game look sharper but it also brings better rendering: more particles: better shadows, higher res texture maps, more consistent frame rates, sometimes it does 4k/60 on AAA exclusives with actual real graphics.... I’ll agree that PS4 has a higher number of quality exclusives but when it comes to graphics the X beats the Pro hands down. The truth is those PS4 exclusives would look even better on an X. Even RDR2 with Sony’s exclusive marketing rights will still look better on the X. This doesn’t even take into account all the extra stuff you get on the X vs the Pro: 4k Blu-ray, Atmos, custom controller configuration per controller per user, hdmi 2.2 support with auto lag and variable refresh rates etc.
Ps4 exclusives will look better on the X? Well you could only wish If ppl want 4k/60fps games they play them on pc. Ps4&pc are the best choice imo
Yet there's still nothing available on X that looks as good as HZD or GoW...
Frankly very few could tell image fidelity differences when viewing at couch distances. So ultimately it comes down to games library, track record, and who do you trust. To date, Sony has been far superior with creative studios producing amazing games. Temporary pixel count superiority for X1X is not enough to sway from the vastly superior library. And once next gen launches in 12-24 months then pixel counting will be a wash. Don't get me wrong my X1X is really nice but I still gravitate to my Pro more than my X.
All that power and the wizards at Sony studios are able to somehow surpass it.
100% agree, since the PS4 launched it was 1080p this 1080p that , now that the tables have turned resolution doesn't matter anymore lol you couldn't make this stuff up, X1X GAMES that utilise the power blow any PS4 game out of the water and no matter the excuses by the fanboys X1X is a beast, i have a ps4 pro also and have all the exclusives and i was more impressed by Tomb raider graphically than i was by any PS4 pro game and that includes god of war which looks good but textures on the snow and ground look like soup, the characters look fantastic dont get me wrong but everything else suffered due the base model ps4, i was not impressed with god of war.
Funny cause the best looking games this gen are Pro exclusive.
“i was more impressed by Tomb raider graphically than i was by any PS4 pro game” LOL. It is getting deep in here.
Xbox X does render 3rd party games better, but this is about “exclusives,” which PS4 is leading atm. It is a shane that all that power is being helf back by only enhancing third party games and not the exclusives, which should have been Ms focus from the start. Sony exclusives look esy better than Xbox despite the weaker hardware. That’s because they got the talent
Someone never played GOW, Uncharted or Horizon, all look better than anything on Xbox.
Literally none of what you said is relevant to the topic at hand. “Sony exclusives look better than anything on the competition” - topic “Well all these third party games look better than they do on PS4”! - you That’s off topic dude. You’re coming off as REALLY salty.
kumakai Still with the Powaah of Xbox X , The Xbox is far behind?? Xbox X should have picked up the pace rt? but it didn't. Do you know WHY? Yes no denying the powaah of Xbox x and why it shouldn't. The spec are higher than that of the Pro... but again its no denying that games looks good on PRo too.. And exclusives looks better than anything from the Xbox campaign.. You can't make it sound like X makes the Pro looks bad.. If that was the case nobody would have bought the Ps4 and With X launch, the Xbox would have dominated.. But that's not the case..
Richie "i have a ps4 pro also and have all the exclusives and i was more impressed by Tomb raider graphically than i was by any PS4 pro game and that includes god of war which looks good but textures on the snow and ground look like soup, the characters look fantastic dont get me wrong but everything else suffered due the base model ps4, i was not impressed with god of war." Dude comeon! you don't have lie here... If you are now comparing Tomb raider with the GOW quality.. That's blasphemy.. lol! either you haven't played GOW or you are just hating the game for doing better than your expectation and better then any games Xbox has to offer.. I understand an exclusive selling 3.1mil copied in 3 days is something unbelievable..
That's because there's more to visuals than just resolution. Raw horse power doesn't automatically make Lara Croft's facial expressions more believable than Nathan Drake's for example, 4k or not. That takes talent.
This guy gets it. And I love your example with motion capture technology. Naughty Dog are masters at animations.
Nintendo and Sony have the best exclusives IMO, and Sony has the best looking exclusives on top of that. The only way I could justify getting an X is if I just plain do not care about exclusives. PS4 Pro: All multiplats with great exclusives in Dynamic 4k with pro support. Switch: Great exclusives with some multiplats and the option of portability. X1X: Best 4k image for multiplats, lackluster exclusives, lackluster Japanese support. Opinions may vary, but this is how I see it.
Shouldn’t be a surprise. Sony simply has better studios.
It makes the X a pointless machine imo...had one and sold it, best looking and best games were still on playstation..Not sure what MS is thinking as a platform holder not having any games to push their new 4k box.
Hehe, so you got a powerful PC for all the multiplatform games then. Because for those who dont then the X is THE place to play everything else until 2020+.
Really? I cannot play GOW, Horizon, Spiderman on the X and it look,s better than anything on the X....The PRO is the best place to play the BEST games. The Xbox lacks them.
Best looking games, or the ability to play all those games + ps4 exclusives...
Do you fanboys realise that only a small percentage actually own an X? Or does that important piece of information not matter?
I don't have a ps pro so I cannot comment(day one og ps4) but Gears 4 and forza horizon 3 are pretty darn good looking with their upgrades on the X. Also I understand this is going to get down votes from petty people... The Xbox onedoesn't have the amount of great exclusives like the ps4 does but it doesn't mean the exclusives they do have look awful. Grow up fan babies
“petty people...” “Grow up fan babies” Irony
Seems like you’re the petty fanbaby here.
I don't think it's about how they look, it's about getting the same Halo, Gears and Forza over and over and over. There is very little diversity on the Xbox, I own both a PS4 and an Xbox, I choose to play on my PS4 far more than I do my Xbox purely because there is more choice in games. People seem to like to forget that they are GAMES consoles. Not resolution consoles.
Those exclusives look better than anything available on the competition's more powerful hardware. Very talented studios under the Sony umbrella.
Agreed Sony is leading the charge, I have ps4 and X both look incredIble on my 4K TV. Forza 7 looks amazing!! so does the gears collection, Detroit looks amazing as well on ps4.
Honestly, ever since PS2, I've noticed they have taken pride in 1st party games. God of War, SOCOM, etc....every PS 1st party title was amazing. I remember actually thinking that too while I was starting a game of SOCOM one night. Since then nothing has changed with the exception of the games getting better and there being more of them. I am a Sony fanboy for a reason, they have floored me for the last 20 years with games.
The short answer is that the PlayStation base model is stronger than the XBOX ONE’s, therefore can meet at a higher median. The XBOX ONE X is too powerful in comparison to the base model in result it won’t be utilized as much, and is for marketing only.
This is very true. The X1 is holding the X1X back. If they designed games at 1080p on the X1X, we could see some next gen shit. The gap in power is there. However because it is a mid gen refresh, it will only ever be a resolution and FPS booster. Same with the PS4 Pro, to a lesser extent.
They should never have suggested the x as a 4k console. The power could have boosted the visuals so much more than just using it for res boost.
there's a Charge?
seriously, when was the last time microsoft took your breath away like sony does?
So true. Pretty much every PS4 exclusive has had a wow factor when revealed, Ghost of Tsushima has it in spades.
I might be picking up an HDR tv just for that game alone
When I saw how much they were charging for Microsoft Office.
So gamebolt is relevant now. Got it,
I don’t see how stating the obvious has anything to do with their relevance.
There is no relevance. He’s an xbox fanboy who’s crying wahhh and is insinuating PS gamers are being hypocrites beacause most PS gamers with brain all agree GB is irrelevant, but with agree with this article which is factual. Even a broken clock is right once a day, so like I said pay him no mind and let him keep crying
The truth is that there are only a handful of developers that are on the same level as some of Sony's first party studios Rockstar and CD Project Red come to mind other than that many other developers don't come close. So many third party developers just tow the line in theory the X should be getting awesome looking games but that isn't happening because games that push the hardware always come from within house so unless MS develops a top notch game showcasing the X, I wouldn't hold my breath for a third party developers to go the extra mile spending extra resources, time and money to make their game look and run exponentially better on the X than the Pro.
They have and will continue to for years to come.
They didn't forget what matters most in gaming, something their competitors could take a few notes on
Just bought an X and already had the PS PRO. I bought the X mainly for backwards compatibility as I have a large library of original Xbox and 360 games, 4k Blu-ray player, to play Halo games again and a few exclusives, and some titles which may be a bit better on it than the Pro. I don't see it becoming my primary console over the Pro as I have a large PS4 library and PSVR.. So sad MS never released a Fable game for Xbox One, that was my favorite MS game.
"Our in-depth look at how the PS4 and PS4 PRO managed to deliver top notch looking exclusives from early 2016 till recently." Driveclub and infamous ss are still some of the best looking games, particle effects ss and weather DC, this gen. They are 2014 releases so i disagree with this statement. oh, and as much as i love GT Sport the graphics aren't even close to Driveclub. https://media.giphy.com/med... https://media.giphy.com/med...
Batman Arkham Knight looks incredible on the Pro as well. I havent upgraded to HDR 4K yet (waiting for those crazy Boxing Day sales), but the performance boost it gives is wild IMO...
agreed, but they are talking about exclusives.
Very true! I don't know why people keep ignoring Driveclub. Though it's gameplay is nothing much to write about, the graphics was fantastic.
Can’t go wrong with PlayStation
Sony's first party games are truly a wonder to behold even without "true" 4K they make some of the best looking games on the planet as opposed to something like PUBG, Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2 etc.
Sony is killing it. Spider man is around the corner to add to the list as well. PS4 exclusives are fun and are graphically superior to ANYTHING on any console. Even giving PC games w max settings a run for their money.
Playing through horizon dawn again at the minute, it's more stunning than I remember!
