The Power Gap Between the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Matters

Over the last few weeks, a lot has been made about the graphical disparity between multiplatform games running on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In the middle of the dispute sits, of course, Call of Duty: Ghosts.

It sure does. In more ways than one.

theBAWSE1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

Corse it matters

it's amazing how bias sites like forbes, Engadget etc are

what does it take for them to stop putting a spin on everything to aid Microsoft?

Microsoft are putting out a considerably weaker console at a higher price and I've read articles stating power doesn't matter? the same sites that crushed ps3 when it came to multiplats

this gen has even started and already we have one site (digital foundry) fixing comparison game coverage to help xbone then when caught out they blame the camera??

we have the countless spins from Microsoft and then them using PC footage but putting an xbox one banner to deceive

Albert and the rest of the funky bunch completely lying to us about resolution or lack thereof..

wtf is going on with all this cover ups for Microsoft? is their advertising revenue that powerful and dependant...

What is better than great gameplay?

Great gameplay with high graphics.

It is simple as that. I do not see why fanboys try to cover this up.

waljaber1898d ago (Edited 1898d ago )

dude wake up.

stuna11899d ago

What?? Someone agrees power makes a difference..... I thought I had just been transported to an alternate dimensions where everything meant the opposite.

Hopeful this can put things in perspective for those who need more proof than others.

sigfredod1899d ago

I want more gaming quality for my money, so yes

NewMonday1899d ago

strange thing is, compared to the XB1 the PS4 gives you more gaming quality for less money

Neonridr1899d ago

It's interesting to see this much of a difference this early on.

Clearly devs are having issues working around the various bottlenecks in the XB1 architecture. The system should be more than capable to take a game like CoD and display it much higher than 720p. 1st party games like Forza are being shown at 1080p/60fps so it's interesting to see the struggles from other devs.

Looks like it could be a reversal of roles this time around where the PS4 will be extremely easy to develop for and devs will have to make work-arounds for the XB1 architecture...

GarrusVakarian1899d ago

I know, i actually thought we would see differences LATER on in the gen when devs have got used to the hardware some more. But differences showing at the start of a gen? The gap can only get bigger from here on....

qu1ckset1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

Racing Games are much easier to make run @1080p 60fps much less detail and textures needed compared to other genres of games hence why a racing game is the only title on xbox1 confirmed running 1080p 60fps. Racing game suck to benchmark what hardware can do!

Strikepackage Bravo1899d ago

Well it must not matter too much since games on XBO running at 720 look better than games on PS4 running at 1080p, I couldn't believe it when I saw that.

qu1ckset1899d ago

Based on what crappy down sampled YouTube videos ? , YouTube butchers the quality of videos , in those comparison videos the xbox1 looked better then both PC and PS4, all the reviewers said the PC and PS4 version looked much better then the xbox1 version!

Strikepackage Bravo1899d ago

The reviewers, much like yourself, are delusional, trust your eyes, not what a bunch of xbox hating Sony hacks say in reviews.

You cant trust anyone bashing XBO these days, everyone knows Xbox bashing gets hits on websites.

WeAreLegion1899d ago

And I can't believe you still have five bubbles.

stuna11899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

He has five bubbles because the "Power of the Cloud" is everywhere!

dericb111899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

Which game is it? We would all love to know.


Just another troll account. For a fact people make them to talk smack without the fear of hurting their real account on N4G.

WeAreLegion1899d ago

Lol. I made a second account once. They deleted the account and banned me for a week for making a second account.

farhad2k81899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

@Strikepackage Bravo

No, you haven't seen it, you've never seen the gameplay of both the PS4 and XB1 running right in front of your eyes, direct from the consoles. Until you do, don't make that statement.

You've seen crappy sampled YouTube videos which you probably weren't even watching at 1080p, yet that still won't make a difference as raw footage direct from the console is what you actually need to make a clear judgement.

Nekroo911899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

What did you exactly saw?!

Xbox one BF4 MP ( Floodzone)

Ps4 Bf4 MP ( Floodzone )

So and now what?
Did i made you cry?! im sorry.. /s

You were comparing a video with 2 compressed images and now you can see the jaggies on the x720 and textures etc

medman1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

Someone give strikepackage bravo a pillow and a hug, he needs a nap his delusions are running away with him. Or give him a swift kick in the ass, either way.

SCW19821899d ago

The denial runs deep in this one.

Skynetone1899d ago

the PS4's software scaling to 1080p leaves a blurry after-taste, whereas the Xbox One stays sharp --albeit with more jagged edges.

As you may notice in our screengrabs, the actual results on PS4 lack the corresponding level of crystal clarity we'd expect of such a significant resolution boost. This should surely be a home run for Sony's console, but what is likely to be a software-based upscale to 1080p delivers less-than-stellar returns, and for better or worse leaves the Xbox One with an often crisper looking, albeit much more aliased image.

its the one and only game running less then 1080p on the ps4 and its seems the ps4 doesn't upscale very well, but all 1080p games on the ps4 will be pin sharp compared to 720p upscaled

Nekroo911899d ago

its actually a hardware-based upscaler, Yoshida confirmed that.

Your just delusional

Skynetone1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )


my comment is about bf4 and this video on youtube, and yes I know that sony said there upscaler was hardware-based, regardless of hardware or software based its not working very well for this game

I was curious my self why the ps4 footage didn't look as sharp, and the above quote was from an article, which to me seems like a logical answer,

gobluesamg1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

@ Strike
Hey at least theres one guy out there that agrees with your nonsensical statements. haha gtfo.

Gore-Content1899d ago

Indeed it does. Only delusional fools would think otherwise.

Strikepackage Bravo1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

Well it seems its more about developers and software when the differences in power are so slight. Maybe we are just witnessing "lazy developers" at work on XBO. Although again, that DF footage proves that on XBO the games actually look better.

obliterator1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

"proves that on XBO the GAMES actually look better."

Which GAMES are you talking about?


Ketzicorn1899d ago

Oh are you speaking of the Digital Foundry article that they issued a retraction on and then a retraction to their retraction? That sounds like a super reliable source you have there.

qu1ckset1899d ago

DF ?? What game is that a short form for ? And you obviously don't know what the bottleneck is on XBO or you would know why developers are having a hard time making XBO titles equal to PS4 , and I'm not even referring to XBO weak GPU , the major bottleneck is the 8GB DDR3 + 32MB eSRAM. The 32MB eSRAM is not big enough to handle the textures for 1080p and maintain 60fps which is why they solve this by using 720p..

10MB of eDram worked on 360 because they only had 512mb or ram..

Strikepackage Bravo1899d ago (Edited 1899d ago )

After seeing this no matter what you people say, its clear that kids on the internet dont understand how specs relate to game development, XBO looks better, period.

EDIT: Im convinced that lowering resolution actually allows XBO to render the games with higher quality, the PS4 footage is blurred in comparison to XBOs, it could also be Microsofts development tools or the XBOs slightly more advanced version of DirectX

Pintheshadows1899d ago

Honestly, you have no idea what you are talking about. It is quite funny to see you claim expertise where none exists.

'its clear that kids on the internet dont understand how specs relate to game development'

Damn straight, you are one of them.

medman1899d ago

strikepackage bravo stands before a mirror every morning and whispers "I'm a tool..I'm a tool..I'm a tool..I'm a tool........."

medman1899d ago

Yes of course strikepackage bravo..that's why all the kids are clamoring for the new 720p tv's and saying to heck with the 1080p flat panels. You make perfect sense. Heh folks, I think stikepackage bravo must be major nelson incognito. That is the only explanation for such rampant buffoonery.
