Xbox One Vs. PS4: Which Is The Fairest Console Of Them All?

By Erik Kain: "As part of my ongoing Xbox One vs. PS4 series, I wrote recently that console games aren’t really about high-end graphics and that if that’s your priority you should just fork over the cash for a gaming rig."

The less cost but run games at 1080p

I think it's pretty dumb that opinionated X1 vs PS4 articles are even allowed to still be posted to N4G at this point.

We all know where N4G stands on the issue. No reason wasting everyone's time with articles like this.

1080P doesn't mean it run smooth or even better
BF4 on X1 is just 720P but looks waaay better than 900P on PS4 and remember that most games run at 1080P on 360 and 720P on PS4 but no body was talking about that ...

'remember that most games run at 1080P on 360 and 720P on PS3 but no body was talking about that ...'

You've only been on here since June this year trywizardo (cool name) so I will let you in on something.

EVERYONE was talking about that every time a multiplatform game released early in this generation. Every DF article was swarmed with Xbox fanboys who would attack you for saying something along the lines of 'I just got GTA4 on PS3'. That would be met with the likes of 'hur hur hur inferiorz sub HD suckage'.

To be honest the turn around on this website from pro Xbox to pro Sony just amuses me more than anything. They brought it upon themselves. It is basically a complete reverse of 06, 07, and 08.

Uhhhhm No....

"the PS4 version delivers a whopping 1600x900 resolution in all modes, giving it a 50 per cent lead in output pixels overall. As well as cutting down on jagged edges, this reduces the amount of pixel shimmer we see in motion on complex shaders or thin geometry, with distant power lines, scaffolding and other elements with sub-pixel elements creating unwanted flickering on Xbox One."

"the PS4 regaining 60fps much faster than the fluctuating Xbox One code. We see occasional XO wins in like-for-like testing too, but in our single-player tests, it is clearly the PS4 code that is in the ascendant"

"the PS4 offers a superior experience on several fronts. The resolution is higher at 1600x900, as compared to the tried and tested 1280x720 on Xbox One, suffering as it does for more visible aliasing artefacts. Visually, the PS4 has a marked advantage with ambient occlusion effects too, which simply isn't matched on Microsoft's platform with the build we played."

The Xbone version of BF4 is a jagged mess... lol

Any native 1080p games you want to list? I can name Wipeout and GT5/6 off the top of my head right now. Also, Journey and Super Stardust.

BF4 doesn't look better.

You do know most if not all of the games on the 360 are upscaled via the upscale chip that sits pretty in the 360. This, imhop, is the reason why I think MS choose to go this route with the Xbone. They played a guessing game thinking their fan base or gamers wouldn't care about native resolution because they have an upscaling chip that can do 4k. Just to let you know, there is a big difference between an upscaled version of a game and a native version.

For me I've got the X1 pre-ordered with about 5 games pre-ordered for it. Il be getting Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Forza 5 and multi platforms.

I did originally have the PS4 pre-ordered but i decided to cancel it because i don't like any of the Launch titles. I hate killzone, Drive Club has been delayed and everything else looks mediocre. Il get my PS4 when Infamous Second Sons comes out.

Lmao couple comments down and things begin to get tense. So much hate between the fanboys. It's pretty much the same recycled arguments over and over.

Manic20142027d ago

Both Look great so far and will be success, Xbox one still need Dev's to settle in to create games of the same resolution of PS4. Overall PS4 has the edge, The Exclusives will now be the deciding factor........Cant wait until 22/11 and 29/11

Themba762027d ago

ps4 obviously more power for less dough 1080p>720p.
