Shadow of the Tomb Raider offers both PS4 Pro and Xbox One X support. There is no change in the visual modes, both support high resolution and high frame rate mode. The difference is in the performance and overall image quality for the game.
Obviously 4K is better.
Not so much, many people prefer 60 FPS to higher resolution. Good thing we have options!
I'd rather have frame rate myself, personally. I don't have any of the enhanced consoles though, so I have no stake in this.
Yep, but they are talking about images not frame rate. There is an option too to play with 60fps so
I prefer 4K with 60fps myself.😆
There isnt too much of a difference in resolution either. Neither is actually 4K by the way.
@AnubisG I would settle for 1440p 60 fps, I dont have a huge tv anyway. At 50 inches and 8 or so feet away I can notice 1080p vs 1440p, but 4k I have to sit closer.
Id rather take the gpu power from 4k and get highly enhanced visuals at 1080p. I hope, if they are targeting full 4k next gen, that they have something to mitigate the power drain from just increasing the res. 60fps is up to the dev and has always been. Any game ever made could have run at 60fps if the devs had turned down effects or settings. Devs choose visuals over fps 90% of the time.
@mkis007 on console they do, on pc the target is still really 1080p 60 fps for most people/devs. The masses have been somewhat resistant to move on from 1080p, we even see more 1080p 120hz gaming laptops this year. Oh, and I actually saw an hdr 1080p tv yesterday. Right now people wanting 4k content is really a niche market, but atleast there is enough of us to make it a market. Half the people I know dont even know what 4k or hdr is, they stretch older tv shows with no worry about aspect ratio, they watch movies recorded in the theater etc.
I'd personally rather 60fps than 4k if I had to give one up. but then again I don't have a TV for it. 1080 is just fine in my book for now I'll make the jump soon I think though. edit Can we even see the real differences on say a mid grade phone or scenario that's not 4k?
I really depends on the game for me. I thought hitman was way better in high frame rate mode but preffered to play rise of the tomb raider in high resolution. It depends how much you're in motion as you only really get the full benefits of high resolution when the screen is perfectly still at 30fps. going off of digital foundry I will most likely play this at 60fps
Too bad Tomb Raider is getting disappointing reviews. Currently a 78 Metacritic.
Is it lower than previous entries on meta? sure. Is 78/100 disappointing? No.
A 78 isnt dissapointing. A 68 is dissapointing. A 78 is a slightly above average game.
It is 82 on Xbox, the PS4 score is skewed by a random 4 from Telegraph. Also some of the negative comments seem to be that it is "more of the same". For me that is a good thing.
Thank goodness I dont let reviews on games decide whether I buy a game or not!
the game in your profile pic has a 69 Metacritic
Luckily for me, and many others I suspect, most of the really low scoring reviews said that gameplay is good/great but that the main problems are the story and Lara's imperialist ways/selfishness. Others say one of the problems is that it's 'more of the same', which is great considering how much I liked the last two. Honestly, I really don't care that much about the story, nor do I care if Lara is 'culturally tone deaf', heh.
It has a higher score on PC and Xbox One. And I really don't care about metacritic scores. The average of 40 or so particular reviewers doesn't represent any kind of objective metric that everyone must bow down to. Shadow of the Tomb Raider received dozens and dozens of 8s, 9s and 10s. Given how much I liked the previous reboots I'm pretty sure I'll tend to agree more with those higher score reviews.
Both not 4k, Eurogamer states X is 2016 and Pro is 1860.
Not really... Xbox One X 4K mode (not true 4k at 2016p) has framedrops and lots of screen tearing. Same goes for the 60 fps mode. I don’t blame the console.. I blame developer Eidos Montreal. They didn’t develop the last 2 games..
If I was playing the game on PS4 (nor am I playing it on Xbox either) I would choose 1080p 60FPS over 4k 30FPS or lower anyday.
Obviously X1X version isn't 4k native. Looks like PS4 Pro is more stable 30fps in resolution mode with same 4k assets like X1X version and also with less screen tearing. Digital Foundry barely gave the edge to X1X version in their comparison https://www.eurogamer.net/a...
Ermagerd!!! 4K!!! Arrrrgggghhhh!!! Did you know that only about 25% of Americans have 4K TVs?
25%? That's quite a lot actually! You sure it's not lower?
The only verifiable number that I could find was 19% from early 2017. So I bumped the number up a bit. Still 1 in 4 is not very much for something that's purportedly so spectacular...
So minimal diff and one console cheaper with a ton of high triple a amaing exclusives and 1 with well 3rd party looking tad better
Busy rather have more games and ps4 is king in that
Exactly! The X was very overhyped. A slight sharper image quality does not beat having amazing games
I think you're looking at the isolated incidents and running with them as the standard. The gap between One X and Pro is wider than the gap between PS4 and Xbox One. Let's not mince words here. For a good amount of multiplatform games, One X has a pretty pronounced advantage. In terms of first party titles, keep in mind that wizards work at Sony's studios which is why God of War, in my opinion, is uncontested. It's a legitimately ridiculously great looking game on Pro and I've yet to see anything like it on X. Doesn't mean that it can't happen though. Most games however are multiplatform and they do look/ run better on X, oftentimes more than a little. To say X was overhyped and writing off the image quality as slightly sharper is a bit disingenuous.
I think owning a PS4 is necessary at this point. God of War and Spider-man just recently released, how could you miss that? PS4 also gives you the option for VR. Not everyone can afford all console, so if you must choose, i'd go with a PS4 Pro. The best console on the market.
Every graphics comparison I see is just a sharper image quality and that’s it. The gap between the X and pro is bigger sure, but with such gap you would think the graphics discrepancy would be much bigger, hence why the 6tf thing was just hype. The X is being held back by the Xone and devs not wanting to push further to not alienate anyone. All that power is just to give a res bump. You will still be playing games at the same FPS as the pro 🤷🏻♂️
AspiringProGenji, Wait.... so you have not seen both running on a 4K TV with your own eyes? If you rely on watching the things on your computer that isn't 4K or YouTube, you're definitely not going to see the difference the way it really is shown. Both look really great when seen personally, but the differences are also more pronounced. I don't disagree with your assessment of frame rate, but aside from Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, Shadow of Mordor, and MGSV: GZ, frame rate has never been a distinct advantage for anyone.
Daxyde. From the perspective of an all platform gamer, ( x1x, pro, switch, vita, 2ds, and gaming pc)xbox 1x differences vs ps4pro is very slight when compared to most pc versions. Almost every comparison I see shows a zoomed image trying to show the increased res on x vs pro. 4k is expensive. I Play on a 55 oled and the X does not live up to the hype or promise of that 6tflop shouting.
Its just the microsoft pr machine really, the x and even the pro are fairly niche products compared to the regular models.
Yes I feel like the difference would need to be way higher in order to give purchase a machine just for the purpose a slight visual boost.
So if one has both pro and x which platform should the person buy this game for as it is the same cost on both?
"So if one has both pro and x which platform should the person buy this game for as it is the same cost on both? " The one that goes on sale first.
Yeah, because ONE game is all the two consoles share together :)
I wouldn't buy both unless the X had some exclusives I wanted to play. If that was the case I would single player multiplat game on the X and multiplayer games on the Pro (since I already have friends and pay for Plus on PS). Without games specific to the X that I wanted to play its just a waste of money when the difference isn't worth another 500 investment.
It really is hard to justify the x for a ps4 owner, even if you only have an og ps4 game library is the most important part.
Yep but it is a magnificent choice for people like me that have both consoles. Multiplatform are a sure Xbox buy for better performance. Is good to have choice.
Lol you guys are so defensive. I have a Pro and an X and my X is more than a "Tad better" looking. I did buy my Pro strictly for Exclusives
Tad...... Keep telling yourself that
Well, these are the same people that will claim PC versions are only slightly better. Just a bunch of childish, defensive fanboys. Instead of acknowledging that each platform has different strengths and weaknesseses they feel the need to make it seem like their console is the best at basically everything, and anything other platforms do better is just "negligible" or "slight" and therefore doesn't really matter.
give 'em a break bro, while we're busy with Yakuza Kiwami 2, DQ XI, Spiderman, and now this, SoTR is their one new high profile game since.. uhh.. State of Decay 2?
X is better as usual
I'm getting the PC version because it looks better as usual. I'm sure my gtx 1080 can run this game in true 4K 60fps and 1440p 60fps
Yep. Same here. When I do get around to this game, my GTX 1080 will handle it nicely.
PS4 Pro fps mode is better since it doesn't have screen tearing like the Xbox One X version and is only a few fps less. Screen tearing is worse.
Buying for the Pro along with other 1st,2nd & third party exclusives.
I would also if I had time, but Spider-man and Firewall Zero keeping me busy.
I have Spiderman as well...lol.
is it hard to just say which one looks better, but we have to add games too, lol
Looking forward to this on my Xbox X. Still playing SpiderMan still but TR will be next,
I never understand the need for ignorant fanboys who bring up exclusives and other NON-GRAPHICAL talking points into an article about GRAPHICS loll Article: " Xbox One X runs at a higher resolution than the Pro" N4G Users: Okay but let me tell you about those exclusives not related to this game Get some help
insecurity. You forgot to add, ''I'll be getting this on my Uber PC". All unrelated to the topic. Any lengths to discredit the better performing console and justify their own purchase.
lol......wow. Talk about insecurity.
@Oliver True, its just sad as you'd think the lots of these people are children who are casual gamers, but its not, sites like these are dominated by grown ass men lmao, which makes it even sadder.
Geez. Cool your jets, fellas. There is plenty of TR to go around. If you want to talk graphics then PC is part of that discussion. If you don't like that well guess that is just too bad, huh?
@Carl On an article about XBOX ONE VS PS4 PRO? Adding PC for no reason whatsoever is troll, troll
lol....oh bullshit. The topic is TR visuals. You guys just get butthurt about PC because your One X is no longer top dog in the conversation and all your insecurities come rushing out. Cry me a river with all your whining.
Foreal!Then they say the difference is minimal ,meanwhile their playing find the difference between Pro and Ps4 it's a challenging game lol the base Ps4 sometimes even performs better
Get it where you play and come together and talk about that experience.
Yes! Couldn’t agree more. Regardless of which looks better, let’s come together and talk about how excited we are to play the game, the gaming experience we have with that said game, putting aside the fact that we all game on different platforms of choice.
Exactly!!! The game still lokks the same, and the layout is the same
One more game that looks best on Xbox One X :)
yeah....about that. "It's just a shame that the enriched mode featured in Rise isn't available here as there is additional fidelity in the PC game that you can't access on consoles. " https://www.eurogamer.net/a...
Yeah of course a PC has the potential to look and perform much better. I forget that after the consoles have gotten so good that some games looks close or just as good as a PC. That consoles now suddenly competes with far more expensive PC's.
