A PS4 vs Xbox One article?! Things are about to get...
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 ...
None of them to be honest. Same devil 2 heads rofl. Pay to go online, No Bc, No mods, Restrictive policies (its as if you dont even own the hardware).
'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.
@trywizardo Uhhhhm No.... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... "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." http://i.minus.com/ib0gOrDz... http://abload.de/img/i3uk6t... ^^^ The Xbone version of BF4 is a jagged mess... lol
@Trywizardo 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.
@Trywizardo 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.
Ye Olde PS4
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
PS4! Case closed!
ps4 obviously more power for less dough 1080p>720p.
i am getting both release day, i dont prefer one over the other, and i wouldnt say i have a biased opinion, but i gotta say i feel kinda sorry for the xbox one, and the amount of hate and negativity it gets, a lot of people probably put a lot of time and effort into it to get shat on by some harsh people,
I was trying to hit agree and I missed. Stupid ipad. I'd say Xbox one doesn't seem like it deserved the hate it recieved. It isn't perfect, but either is any other system. I'll buy a ps4 first, then Xbox one later, but it's still sad that it doesn't receive nearly any praise.
I think its all on MS tho blame them , coming out and telling every one "game parity" and other BS is what caused the problem, i can bet you there would not be any where near as much negativity towards them if they just told the truth from the start, if MS officially came out and said "Guys we are confident in our product and anyone getting an xbox one will be very happy with their purchase, we have some amazing games coming that will blow you away and feel we offer something for everyone" but instead they lied there arses off about parity and balance and other crap. Thats about as unbiased as i can be about it all and its as honest as i can be too.
Both... Once they get their issues sorted out. 2014 is going to be amazing.
XBONE's issues, Not PS4's ;)
The console who's little brother can do GT 5 and 6 at 1080P, 60FPS, and BF4 and COD and CHIPS at NATIVE 1080P 60 FPS. Didn't have stupid policies, was region free, is cheaper and didn't blow have its costs on a camera.
Obviously the Wii U.
What camera resolution is the PS4 capable? Oh that's right 720p Only on PS4!! Xbox 1080p camera!!
Yay, because camera resolution makes so much of a difference to the games you buy the console for. Huzzah for console cameras.
The PlayStation 4 camera can record in 3D. http://www.youtube.com/watc... xbox camera???
@jediah Awesome for you now you can see your face in 1080p glory when DRM comes backin a year or two.
Your life will be complete once you realize that this conversation does not matter. People are different. People will like different consoles for different reasons. Enjoy whatever you purchase come November!
The major issue we're seeing here is that Microsoft have over 1/4 of their games available at launch, whereas the PS4 offers a little over 1/10th at launch. Now, I've said this before, and I'll say it again, but picking up a console because what you can play on day one alone is a very stupid thing to do. Think long term investment, you may be suited for a day or two, but come a few months you may not be suited at all. Looking at places like Wiki, the PS4 currently has over twice the amount of games announced and developed, with two times the amount of exclusives. Now, I'm not getting either system until the future, but I would rather have the system offering me 130+ games over two years, than 50+ games over two years... That includes Indies and multiplats. I'm not even joking, that's more or less the raw number of new games you'll be seeing for both consoles after release date. To me, the console with 50+ games doesn't seem as if gaming is a priority.
What if its 50 quality Games? How would you feel Then?
Exactly! Quality over quantity every time - I mean who in their right mind could even consider missing out on fantasia, the fighter within, Xbox Fitness and the big one.../drumroll KINECT SPORT RIVALS!!! What is the point in having almost triple the number of games when you've got these big hitters!
And what if it's 130 quality games? You act as if the number of games on PS4 will negatively affect their quality. Well, I know it's just your way of trying to discredit the larger number, since it scares you.
I like how you think, that's why I respect companies like CDPR and s*** on companies like EA. Long term > short term. And Sony really has the best first party studios behind them, not to mention Sony tends to offer more variety rather than FPS, FPS, FPS, kinect game, kinect game.
PS4 is better and Canada need to stop trolling us with Drake and Justin Bieber. Why this community is obsessed with approving the obvious back to back is beyond me.
I don't know much about Drake but I do know that Justin Bieber now lives in the US so he is now YOU'RE problem!
Let's get one thing straight. If you a true gamer you will try and play the games on all platforms. Last gen I played mainly on my PC and PS3. I bought ALL consoles cuz of the exclusives! It should not be any different. Its soooo funny hear the console fanboys battle it out. graphics this graphics THAT. If that was the case GO play on ONLY the PC. It offers MUCH better graphics than a console has to offer. I think the same will apply this gen for ME, pc primary and the consoles for their exclusives. All consoles have their place, depends how much disposible income you want to put into this hobby. We should be glad that all companies are producing entertaininment. It is the fanboys I really hate it makes this hobby horrible at times.
Did people watch the Jacks PS4 footage and not the other ones because they been tamper with and the IGN player does even go up to 1080 only 720P, they would see a clear difference. Is almost night and day, even many reviewers said the PS4 version of the game looks very close to the high setting PC...
the ps4 MP is about as good as you can get, it looks amazing i am very happy with it, they did a good job on the ps4 thats for sure
None. both are closed systems that you don't really own.
Oh i really don't care anymore, i'll get both one day and i'll enjoy them both, you know why ? because i am a gamer. Sony fanboys, Microsoft fanboys, answer this, does it really matter which one is better ? Just play the games and have some damn good fun.
In this particular case it really comes down to which company tried to fuck you over the least. You buying an Xbox One is basically sending Microsoft the signal that no matter how much they fuck you, you'll still come crawling back with open an anus.
People complaining that XB1 is $100 more for less pixel count, while probably most of them trade in their iPhones every year for more than what the XB1 costs without hesitation. Hell, the iPhone 5c costs more than the XB1. The same people will still complain even if XB1 was $100 less than PS4, let's be honest. It's more of a "my personal preference is obviously the best choice for EVERYONE and if not they must be idiots" mentality.
