Destiny: Graphics Are Different from Platform to Platform

NowGamer: Bungie president Harold Ryan says the 'graphics are different, platform to platform' for Destiny.

What isn't clear is whether this means between the PS4 and Xbox One (as is asked in the question Ryan's responding to) or between the next-gen and current gen versions.

That's good. Ps4 graphics vs. Xbox one graphics. May the best one win.

They didn't say it was the PS4 lol.

They obviously meant from the current generation (360/PS3) compared to the next (One/PS4).

The X1 and PS4 have comparable power.


mario193759d ago

Omg mystogan. You are very defensive. You used all your bubbles up posting the same thing

thechosenone3759d ago

XB1 is sporting a weaker GPU, will only use 6 out 8 cores the other two will go to OS/Kinect; will only use 5 of the 8GB of RAM for games the rest will be taken by OS.

TRUTHFACT: MS having eSRAM yield problems on Xbox One, RUMOR:downclocking GPU

comparable doesn't mean equal.. :P

Montrealien3759d ago

After last gen being completly dominated by the WII in sales, are we really gonna start thinking that 2% power difference (completly made up number, but you get the point) is going to make a difference? come on people, we are better than that.

AngelicIceDiamond3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )

OMG these dense ass fanboys...

The PS4 maybe 50% faster so lets make it sound like it will be night and day PS1 graphics X1 vs PS4 graphics super duper high end graphics.


"The graphics are different, obviously, platform to platform."

From platform to platform use your your little brains this is a current and next gen game geniuses. So I would expect the game to look different and better on next gen consoles on X1 and PS4 than on PS3 and 360.

You can insert this same statement here regarding Watchdogs. "The graphics are different, obviously, platform to platform."

Whaaat? Reeeally? Oh yeah that's right Watch dogs engine designed to be scalable just like Destiny's.

baby steps fanboys, baby steps.

And its obvious a misleading headline for more hits. No where in his statement did he say PS4 will look different, nor imply look better than the X1.

You can mold and sculpt any kind of fanboy logical fiction you you all want. Its a misleading title.

@bzdine "Tretton said that during one of his post e3 interviews. Destiny looks better on PS4, most powerful and easy to develop for."

OMG did Sony really say that? You'd give in to any PR by Sony. Well damn MS said the same thing about its games also.

So it has to be true right, Right? Why in the world would Sony say otherwise?

Fanboys don't know nothing, nothing at all...

MysticStrummer3759d ago

"Fanboys don't know nothing, nothing at all..."

You just said fanboys know something.

; )

BallsEye3758d ago

Yep, but of course sony fanboys want to believe it's about ps4. How disappointed they'll be. You guys are making fools of yourselves. This site became hilarious.

It's the game that matters, not the graphics. When did graphics matter? Sure they're nice, but it's all about gameplay. I would rather have both versions be functional than be pretty.

SpinalRemains3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )

Me too, man.

Hey if you want to play a fantastic-playing game, download Vanquish from the PSN store if you haven't played it yet. Its free and its a total pisser to play. Very fluid and all around fun.

It has the perfect mixture of character cheese and great gameplay. Now it's free :-D

Why o why3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )

Not for me....if that was the case I wouldn't be spending money on a new systems. If I didn't want better graphics, amongst every other improvement, I would of stuck with the ps2 and many wouldn't be talking about next gen consoles.

Graphics alone don't make a game but they sure as h*ll improve many of them. Good graphics + physics + story ....is better than only having 2 of the 3 depending on the game type obviously.

Montrealien3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )

having a comment like that get 4 dissagrees and 0 agrees reminds me how shit this N4G community can be. Lots of great people with balanced opinions, but a crap tonne of people ruled by hate.

wait I take that back, a half dozen rotten people with many accounts.

@spinal I bought Vanquishe on my 360 the day it came out, great game, glad more people can enjoy that gem. :)

@why oh Why

gameplay>story>graphics and I will takegood gameplay and good graphics over good graphics and good stroy anyday.

Why o why3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )

Way to miss the point montrealien. I wasn't using '>' because I wasn't putting them in any order even thought I stupidly forgot gameplay, I was just saying I would prefer all features if possible ie the last of us. Of course there are games where only gameplay is needed, tetris, puzzle fighter, or story like ico or whatever. A healthy mix of the 4 would be great. Thing is the most important improvements, from a hardware standpoint, from gen to gen are those to the physics, graphics and AI. I'm not sure where the hate or dislike for better graphics or the celebration of them is coming from. Do you still rock a crt or something....smh

Montrealien3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )

I was just pointing out that two together is just fine as long as gameplay is one of them.

jmac533759d ago

If I am spending $400 - $500 on a new console, I expect some damn good graphics.

hadouken0073759d ago

Graphics always matter, because no one is buying these big screen TVs with the best picture quality for Nothin, though game play is first in my book but Yeah I doubt anyone's still using an 13'' TVs or slightly larger, and nowadays any gamer has a TVs just for gaming.

jmc88883759d ago

Except you're going to have the same game, and the worst looking one is on the Xbox One which happens to be more expensive.

At least you'll be able to see that's it looks poorer only if your and MS's internet is working, and Microsoft via the Kinect will be able to tell if you're happy or not.

BLAKHOODe3758d ago

Graphics are the backbone of modern gaming. Why do you think next-gen consoles have so much RAM? The majority of it is for graphics. That's why we pay hundreds of $$$ to have the latest consoles.

Don't get me wrong - game play and innovation is important, too, but you can get that playing old NES games.

Is this game on pc?
If not I think the best version will be ps4

torchic3759d ago

they are "considering" a PC version

Simon_Brezhnev3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )

Probably means between PS4 to PS3 in the interview.

s8anicslayer3759d ago

And being that they showed the game running on the PS4 I'm guessing that it looks better on the PS4. Just a hunch

Heartnet3759d ago

It will look identical if the developers are smart economically..

THere is little point creating 2 seperate versions of the game for near enough same spec Console, as it would be a waste of money unless Sony paid em to do it.

They probz means for current and next gen console.

limewax3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )


They won't be making separate version of the game, that would be ridiculous. They also won't look identical either.

They will optimize the code across the platforms and see what can fit into what systems, not unlike this gen where sometimes AA may be in one version but missing in another, just this time it will be a more exaggerated gap.

They never have built separate version unless they literally rebuild the game from the ground up. It's literally just optimization and turning the settings up.

Ju3759d ago

In all honesty, I don't actually care if it looks better. What I have seen so far it looks just freaking awesome. The best video I've seen was the behind curtain presentation from Bungie themselves - not so much the quality, but because it is a full hands on at Sony's "dark room":


Jump to 2:10 and listen what he's saying. Most impressive that he actually turns around and shows the world which just looks incredible.

thezeldadoth3759d ago

sony trolls. its gonna be another 5 years of looking at lens of truth articles to spot the minuscule differences between the games, with very obvious differences between the ps4/xbox one tier, and the PC.

insomnium23758d ago

Well since it was the x360 people who laughed at PS3 for the lousy ports it got and used LOT it is guaranteed that we will hear all about PS4's better graphs. Ain't payback a bi*ch?

thezeldadoth3758d ago

payback to who? I owned both consoles and haven't played either one of them in over a year. I don't know why you guys need "payback" and all that. What the hell is with this war between two mildly outdated electronic boxes.

LoveSpuds3759d ago (Edited 3759d ago )

"I expect multi plats to be better on the PC like they have always have with graphic settings, no limit on resolution, mods and no limit on framerate."

Who the hell mentioned PC's in this article? I have a pretty sweet gaming rig but have never felt the need to be a complete bellend and mention it in articles about consoles.

"'Graphics Are Different' Between PS4 And Xbox One"

Have they ever been the same?
