Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - PS4, Xbox One and PC Graphics Comparison

IGN compare the PC, PS4, and Xbox One versions of Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Do you see any differences?

Looks nearly identical to me. With the lack of info for Xbox One version I was getting a bit worried but was all for nothing.

This comparison video is really compressed

Army_of_Darkness1478d ago

In terms of sharpness:
XBone- good
PS4- Better
PC- Best

But overall, they all look nearly identical.

You're not going to tell how good they actually look running on a direct feed by looking at a 1-2mbps video. It just isn't going to happen. Why these sites don't give direct downloads to higher quality videos, I don't know. Otherwise it kinda defeats the purpose of comparing at all. At least with DF and the like, they give you statistical analysis with their highly compressed videos.

That's why these videos are usually useless, the video is too compressed to even notice the differences, small as they are. Looks like they all look similar enough to not really matter though.

Still going for ps4 over xbone for higher res.

Keep this in mind... The video is compressed for us, which makes it hard to tell the difference. The individual writing the article hopefully saw direct feed when reporting, because their really isn't a way to properly report on the differences from this video.

The xbone version to me looks a bit blurry compared to the ps4, is there a rez difference because it looks like that. I have it on PC so I have no clue.

thereapersson1478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

There is a resolution difference in that the PS4 version runs native 1080p; The One version does not.

There's your difference.


It's really minute in the grand scheme of things, especially looking at this video and not being able to tell much of a difference.

fr0sty1478d ago

If the Xbox rendering at 720p is true, there will be noticeable differences on a real Xbox One hooked up to a TV vs. a real PS4 hooked up to a TV... not a super compressed comparison that many people probably aren't even watching on 1080p screens.

720p is less than half the res of 1080p, and we saw what the difference looked like in COD: Ghosts.

starchild1478d ago

Oh come on. I'll be the first to say that there definitely are going to be differences between the three versions, but you can't tell me that with such a low quality video you can notice much of anything to distinguish each version.

These video comparisons are usually pretty pointless. When all three have the same art, same basic contrast and color balance, and the video is this compressed there is no way that you are going to be able to distinguish any significant difference.

netnow661478d ago

Yes, it does appear to be a little blurrier to me also which I'm assuming is the resolution difference. It's visible to the naked eye, not something you need DF to confirm.

alb18991478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

That's the differences that PS4 fans are bragging about?
Come have to be kidding me!
The only way to justifice this nonsense is if you have a projector with a 150" screen.....if You have a 60" or less there isn't differences worth talking about.

Remy_Chaos1478d ago

Calm down, it's a multiplatform game and it also depends on whether the developer puts forth the effort or goes for parity on all (though PC gamers can push ahead obviously if they want.)

Of course though its obvious what you're after...

alb18991478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

What I am after?

I'm just saying that I don't see a significant difference between them to buy one better than other.
I have seen a lot of comments about this game......about how good will be on PS4 vs X One and when finally see the differences now you say: "calm down is a multipataform game"
Why didn't you tell to all your compadres of PS4 to calm down when they did does claims?
Now I have an agenda?
I'm just glad that in multipataform games there isn't such a difference to be sad about.
This gen will be defined by exclusives and until now I have enjoy more my XONE than you and all your compadres together because of fun games.
I hope SONY understand soon that isn't just about graphics so I can buy my PS4 finally and you and your compadres can have some fun too.

This game does not even begin to ultilise a PCs power properly at all.

The textures for all the VRAM they use are quite low resolution, they are just uncompressed which is why they take up so much VRAM.

The game also has no AA method or option and does not allow for AA to be forced through the Nvidia control panel.

This is not a good PC port so comparisons are fruitless when clearly the lead platform was PS4 by a mile.

It runs great on high and looks pretty good in areas but horrible in others, ultimately though it chugs up PC performance with its demanding VRAM requirements so it was held back in that regard.

Bring on the silent disagrees.

Allsystemgamer1478d ago

The AA method is down sampling. It will kill performance but it always looks much much nicer.

-Einhert-1478d ago

They do not use down sampling in game, there is no option for it.

So many jaggies.

Allsystemgamer1478d ago

@ einheart

In video options go above your native res. it will fix it

Qrphe1478d ago

>This game does not even begin to ultilise a PCs power properly at all.

And barely any games will, get ready for yet another gen of unoptimized console ports like always.

dreamed1478d ago

Its comments like this that make me wonder why pc is called master race? offence to you buddy,its just i see on n4g "master race" said so much and agree that pc get loads on shitty ports?.

Look at ubisoft titles for example.
