Compressed youtube video makes it harder to tell, but difference exist and are huge.

Sarcasm3596d ago (Edited 3596d ago )

The author is trying to articulate that compressed youtube footage isn't the best method of trying to view comparisons. I actually agree. In order for these comparisons to have any real weight, they need to start pumping out high bitrate videos for people to download just like the ones at gamersyde.com, or similar to the video Guerrilla games released for KZ Shadow Fall.

That's probably where a lot of these silly comments about "There's no difference between 720p and 1080p" comes from.

Digital Foundry would be wise to start using direct feed methods of comparison. As visual fidelity improves, it will be harder to discern any real difference with those small patches of muddy pixelation.

Unless there's a huge difference between any versions, I would only take a graphics comparison seriously if it were direct feed footage captured from both versions blown up on my '46.

Because chances are XB1 is going to wind up losing most of them.

They really didn't matter all that much with the PS3 and 360, but they were still used as a deciding factor when buying games.

It will always be PC > PS4 > X1

In my house it will be PS4->PC->PS3->Vita -> PSP->HTC Android->iPod->Texas Instruments Calculator->Microwave owen.

"but they were still used as a deciding factor when buying games.'

Realistically not all the time. But you are correct this gen was the pinnacle or "deciding factor" when it came to which version to own.

But in the whole grand scheme of things it wasn't as black and white as many were thinking. PlayStation fans still bought COD for their system despite problems on that version.

And I think the word preference should be used strongly as well.

But again you are right though.

Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 Tips for Creating a female V Character

CG writes: With the arrival of Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 update, we created yet another female V character for the next playthrough, ahead of next week’s Phantom Liberty expansion. CDPR suggest starting the game again now, as the systems are different and there will be new references to the missions prior to the Phantom Liberty storyline. Take a look at our video to give you some pointers, or you can just copy our rather sexy looking female V. We have also listed some of our older character creation videos in case you prefer those versions of V.

Not digging this character. I prefer something more gothic/punk.
