IGN : Xbox One & PS4 & PC go head-to-head with Xbox 360 & PS3 in an epic graphics showdown.
Dat Black Crush!
My God, check 2:11, the difference is shocking. Ps4 wins again... Ps4 is closer to Pc !
http://thecrazyfanboy.blogs... Some points highlighted.
Easy PS4 win. We're going to see alot of this.
Ps4 and xbox one are on par with each other pc looks a tiny bit bitter but dam look how far consoles have come
The 360 version beats the PS3 one from what I can see. The PS4 beats the X1 version.
Yeah, the XB1 version is crushing black detail. The next gen versions have better textures, better lighting (with light shafts), better alpha effects (fog, etc), real time screen space reflections, higher quality shadows, higher display resolutions and better framerates. The last gen versions also seem to have screen tearing whereas the current gen versions don't. As far as I can see the hierarchy would go like this: PC>PS4>XB1>360>PS3
Those crushed blacks are terrible. I'm calling Al Sharpton!
Them Crush Blacks tho this is mainly PS4 vs PC tbh they almost look identical.
True, but this video makes them all seem closer than they really are. If you see them on a full size display and at full quality the differences will become much more obvious. The PC version definitely has better anti-aliasing (SSAA, the best there is), better texture filtering (16x anisotropic filtering vs trilinear on PS4), better framerate (smooth 60fps on my HD 7950 vs 30fps with drops on the PS4) and what seems to be fuller alpha effects (like fog) in some areas. The PC version also has tessellation and contact hardening shadows and I'm not sure if the PS4 version has those things, or if it does have them, whether the quality of those graphical elements is the same.
You can't see the crushed blacks if you sit further from the TV ... This proves emphatically that you don't need native 1080p because the scaler works miracles! Seriously, MS need to sort that out pronto.
Didn't they remove the over sharpening with a patch? Which means that the developers are over sharpening the image on purpose to hide flaws in the image quality.
Yes, they removed the sharpening filter but the black crush is another issue. This looks terrible and the lower resolution clearly effects that nose: http://i.imgur.com/iVOhLsw.... Imagine what that looks like on a 40" TV.
@Gribble it is way to dark on X1. But in that picture the X1 doesn't look saturated like the others. It actually looks black not a grayish or whatever the 360 version is lol. Not like it matters this is mainly a last gen game with an old engine. Its not doing the next gen justice at all with 30 frames that's not locked in on next gen consoles. That's pretty bad.
@AngelicIceDiamond: Sorry but that looks terrible and if you and others like you don't start complaining MS won't do a thing about it. Do you really want crushed blacks to cover the loss of detail? Come on, put pressure on MS to rectify this by complaining. It's something that CAN be put right.
@Modi It looks darker on X1 but for some reason there seems to be more detail and color instead of saturation like the others. At least that's what I see. Imo the X1 actually holds up quite nicely.
angeliclie I don't know what video you were watching can you give that link to that video. This was the worst video i ever seen for X1 it was dark and muddied. The lighting effects were so much better on PS4 and PC . The PS4 and PC were indistinguishable .
@Punch And here we go. How bout you allow me to have an opinion instead forcing your? The X1 is darker in which is a downfall but if you go to 3:22 the model actually looks high res and not muddied on X1. The colors pop a little more when your looking at it seems. If you wanna talk muddied features look at the 360 version that one looks worst out of them all imo especially when compared to the X1, PC and PS4 its night and day. Like I said the X1 holds up ok at least when its compared to PS4 and PC. I'm not gonna do the usual routine and automatically say PlayStation at every single turn unless PlayStation does genuinely and fairly look better (in which it has in all the lens comparisons so far). Considering this sites ongoing track record of fanboyism. I don't take anyone's word here when comparing, lol no way. Yeah allow ME a user that doesn't have any time type fanboy eye where to tell you which version holds up well and which one doesn't hold up to well.
Angeliclie it's not fanboyism to state the fact that the PS4 and PC versions are superior to X1 . Number 2 when you use a caveat to explain your opinions there is it something wrong with your opinion and not valid. The X1 is darker in which is a downfall but if you go: caveat .The gamer should not have to look closely to see details in the game.go to 3:22 the model actually looks high res and not muddied on X1. Nice try though
The xbox 1 version is just seriously over saturated
ps4 smashes it as usual,so glad i backed sony with my cash
No wait, which gen is this again?
What is crush black
When the contrast of the machine creates an oversaturation of black color in dark scenes. Either due to a crappy RGB filter or done purposely to hide poor detail/jaggies.
actually, it has more to do with the RGB range. there's 2 different ranges: limited, and full. limited is a range of 16 - 235, full is a range of 0 - 255. people often set it to full thinking that the blacks are "better", but the reality is that when you're using your console (which ever one it happens to be), you want to set the RGB range to limited since that is what needs to be set for your TV. RGB full is what you would set if you were outputting your console through a computer monitor. i think people have the option to set it to full or limited through the xbone OS, and it just looks to me that whoever captured this video has their xbone's RGB range set to full (since it often results in crushed blacks).
You do realize that properly calibrated LCD TVs (even low-end) have been able to display RBG settings at full since at least 2008 right? Your PC monitors are not as elite as you think. The crushed blacks seems to be more evident in some xbox games than others. It sounds to me like a developer choice.
at 4:14 with all the bird cages the ps4 looks a lot better.
The PS4 version looks closest to the PC version. The Xbox One version has really nasty crushed blacks though.
the xbox one seems to have higher rez textures
Darker blacks tend to make the image look sharper. But its just a trick, you could easily darken up the PS4 image and it would make it look sharper too. But the darker images on the X1 are causing black crush. You dont want that.
Not sure if serious....
Something has to be wrong with the SDK or the coding. The XBone is the only one with the crushed blacks, even when compared to the ps3/360. Is it a direct screen grab? Are the monitor/tv settings correct? I don't think it's the hardware causing the crushed blacks as I said, it's not there in the current gen. Gotta be software that Microsoft has to get sorted out.
Its the X1, it crushes blacks, we've seen this same thing on alot of other games. I think MS does it on purpose, i think they think it looks better. It could be easily changed by them but i dont think they want to
could be an issue of the person having their xbone's RGB range set to full instead of limited (which is what it should be set to instead of "full"). full should be used if you're running it all through a computer monitor, limited is best for TVs. http://ca.ign.com/wikis/xbo... edit: and if you set it to limited, and it's still crushed, then the TV settings need to be adjusted (usually by turning off any black enhancements, dynamic contrast, etc...). it's insane what people think looks good versus how it should actually look.
Ah, ANOTHER graphic comparison "article", wonderful. Can we cover the more important matter of performance for a change. Many I see criticise the Wii U for not being current gen, even though it quite obviously is by definition, the Wii U yet has a couple of games running at 1080p/60fps and a good few more running at 720p/60fps (locked). Now, can we agree performance is the defining factor and both PS4 and Xbox One are currently under-performing?
@ higgins It doesnt work that way, just cuz the game is 1080/60fps or 720p locked 60fps doesnt mean its on the same level as the PS4/X1. And if you dont know this, then i dont know what to tell you
This game's frame rate dips to 9-10 on ps4. I can't focus while I play something like that. And the game is mediocre at best.
Ok, I accept that, but what is this level which both PS4 and Xbox One are CURRENTLY operating at that far surpasses anything available right now on the Wii U...I'm yet to witness it on the ground-level.
Who really cares? You're not going to enjoy the game any more at 1080p than anyone playing at 900p
Funny how it most certainly mattered last gen when Xbox had better looking 3rd party games than the PS3.
It didn't matter then either. It's just food for trolls and fanboys
Only real difference is in the brightness.. prefer xb version with a better framerate though.
You dont know that the X1 definitely has a better framerate. It was only that one site claiming that and all the other site have only said that they both roughen up. Wait for DF of LOT to do their comparison. then we'll know the truth
Well you would not see any shit of the difference form 720p youtube video anyway,.. They both mostly have the same assets ,.. And PC and PS4 version are running at higher res,.. with few more effects like smoke and fog and stuff Lower res will be crappier and jaggier by default,.. not as crisp and jaggier,.. no amount of AA will fix that much,.. usually even make somethings worse Anyway,.. Why even bother with these... At least xbox version is not running at 720 ,.. because that would look really bad. PS: Game is great, if you like Thief ,.. don't believe all the crap they are spewing about it on the web,.. yes it has glitches,.. but overall it is exactly what I wanted form a Thief game,. it is better than 3 at least,.. and missions are long and incredibly well designed.
xbox one looks like the 360. ps4 and pc are identical.
I had to double check bone version and 360 version look nearly identical.
Are you serious . Are you really serious
To be honest, this is the smallest leap between generations I've seen since I started playing games befor almost 30 years. Please don't blindly disagree.
lol so true XD
I can't seem to find the PC specs used.
It is maxed out and runs at 1080P ,.. So it really does not matter.
i was assuming that but it would of been nice to see the rig used...no?
the reason you all see crushed blacks on XB1 is their tv in comparison does not support 32bit coulors and full rgb so they are getting the black crush if your tv supports the high settings no black crush if you experience the black crush use rgb limited or lower colur bits cause ur tv if not fairly new probably not supported its that simple.XB1 has lots of tv settings more than PS4 i have both. the fix for blk crush on tv's that do not have proper support is on the way in next update..The XB1 version has higher rez textures and a better frame rate the ps4 version but ps4 has better AA.I would wait for DF to do face 2 face then a proper comparison can be done.I remember not to long ago IGN screwed up the colour settings on Xb1 COD comparison and also said 1080P was obvious in ps4 when the devs revealed they wher 720p version(pre patch) that they where actually looking at..Reports from other XB1 owners is that they have no Blk crush..
They need to disable the rgb full on the xbox one.I had rgb full on and dead rising 3 was so hard to see the details limited is the way to go well for my taste. colors look better at times but it's a bad trade off for picture quality.
Ohhhhh Man, those bird cages on Xbone had no AA at all.
Once again PS4 Version is washed out, Xbox One wins hands down.
Xbox one wins in my opinion
Why is it that when these comparisons are done the PC and and ps4 versions are always so similar, especially with regards to lighting and shading...but the xb1 version is always slightly tinted darker?
Is there really any need for these comparisons? the game was made in UE3 so the PS4 & Xbone versions are basically running on high settings with Direct X 11 effects tured on.
