GearNuke: "Check out a comparison between The Evil Within on current generation and PC."
FTW A.K.A "Fail To Work" ?!
I don't understand how a game built on an engine coded for 60fps can't provide a smooth 30fps experience on current gen. Some shoddy work I'd say.
NOW YOU KNOW HOW THE PC CROWD HAS BEEN FEELING SINCE 2004! Consoles have been ruining PC multi-plats because the devs can't be arsed to make the PC version properly. And console games are made on PCs for god sake. "PC version sales are too low." Err, yeah, because you can't be arsed to make a proper PC version. If you can't be bothered to take the time to make the PC run properly, or edit the engine for it, then maybe we can't be bothered to give you money for it. Look at Skyrim. Ran and looked great, yeah it needed some menu mods, but it was fantastic. And sold over 6 million on PC alone, out-selling consoles.
I don't understand why people disagree with you. All what's you say is true, but prolobly that true hurts this peoples because they can't acepet the consoles are way behind of Pc...
Yeah, don't mind the disagree votes. All that you said is true m8.
You and other PC gamers should be feeling lucky this time that TEW is on PC too (good for you Mikami is in Tango/Bethesda), Mikami usually make games only for consoles... So, while you have right to complain anything, at least this time, consider it as as a treat...
Another good example is Valve games and Civ5. Truth hurts.
People who are disagreeing are console delusional fanboys.
Dynasty would that not be the fault of devs....Why the hate for consoles...Consoles don't develop games...
I just got the 360 version and im blown away by how good it looks for last gen. I was just about to say this is one of the best games to show off idtech 5. Did not hear about the performance issues on current gen though :/
the title should also read "PS4 and Xbox one Versions Looks Great But Has Performance Issues" cause its misleading because both, and in the article stated that they suffer from some framerate issues and pop in not only PS4.
Its misleading in that it sounds like PS4 would be the only 'current gen' XD So it kinda says PC better than new gen better than last gen.. what a news.. anyway Digital Foundry might be the only one worth checking.
DF will always be the only one worth checking when it comes to comparations
So if ps4 is in the title, to you that means ps4 only. When you read current gen in the title to you that means ps4 only. Got it. You see when I read current gen. That means current gen consoleS..... That's just me though.
This website seems to omit any news about the X1 unless it's negative news.
Very Misleading title. I'll await the DF faceoff.
I used to do the same thing... then I read their review of Destiny where they clearly stated that PS4's framerate stayed at a perfect 30fps even though their own video showed it drop to 28fps THREE separate times.
Ps 4 multiplats seem to have these performance issues alot.
Nowhere near as bad as performance issues found in X1 multiplats.
I wouldn't be satisfied with many multiplats on either the PS4 or XB1, although its true the PS4 versions are usually better. I'm happy to have a gaming PC for multiplatform games, since I wouldn't be satisfied with the way many of them run on consoles. Other people have different standards, though, and that's fine.
I love this game but not a huge fan of the aspect ratio. For anyone who is intrested check out my lets play of it here :-) https://www.youtube.com/use... :-)
Anyone else pissed that the ps4 and x1 are have problems running a cross platform game, I mean come on they're suppe to be vastly superior than last gen right?
I have both this gen consoles, and why in the hell would I be pissed, as I did not build either console, and making games is not as easy as gamers seem to think as this gens architecture is much different than previous gen and there are many variables that go into making the games. Pissed, I am not not, I keep my gaming simple, I play what I like and what I don't like I move on to another game. In the grand scheme just games, if you have an issue with either console there is the PC option. I am fine with both consoles. They are what they are and you getting pissed cause the specs are not closer to the PC aint changing that, so why waste the energy.
Sorry buddy, but that argument is one big FAIL. Developing for PS4/Xbone is easier than ever since they both use x86 architecture which has been the PC standard for over 20 years. Developers have absolutely no excuse for lazy programming. No more blaming it on the complexity of CELL or the way RISC processors compute information. If a game runs like crap, it's because they did a crap job.
Yes, indeed there has been talk of a patch as of late, but isn't that another case of what you referred to as " woulda ,shoulda, coulda"? :P I mean, if the game wasn't finished, then maybe they should have delayed it a month or so to work out the kinks, instead of releasing what they considered to be an unfinished product, then patch it later. Now, I get how the industry works to a certain degree: developers have deadlines, publishers can make demands, and like you said: videogame development is hard! I understand that there is a lot that can go wrong during the process of developing a game. I do appreciate what Tango has accomplished. The Evil Within is a great game (a very subjective opinion, since I like these kinds of games), but that doesn't change the fact that the game does have performance issues. I just find it weird, since it's an old engine running on "brand new" hardware. As far as I know, this is the only game using id tech that isn't developed by id. I wouldn't go so far as to say that this issues annoy me, but I do definitely notice them when they do occur.
Idk why waste time building a console that struggles to play a game that can be ran on last gen hardware.Imagine if ps2 struggled to handle games that were built for a PS one engine.I'm just saying ps4 and Xbox one are mid gen consoles stamped with an 8th gen tag.#gen 7.5,I'm considering switching to PC now Cuz this is just Redonkulis!!!
Considering that Wolfenstein The New Order ran at a silky smooth 60fps on both current and last gen consoles, I was surprised to hear that The Evil Within would run at 30. But then I thought, "hey, it doesn't really matter as long as the framerate is good and the game plays smooth". Well, I'm sad to say, it doesn't perform very well. I'm playing it on PS4, so I can't comment on how any of the other versions run, but yeah, the game seems to have major problems keeping up the framerate, especially if you turn the camera around fast, and when there's a lot going on at once. I'm not commenting on the game itself, as I think it's really good! It's been ages since we've had any games of this sort, and it's wonderful to see Mikami and his team put so much love into making a real survival horror game again! Having said that, the game performs quite poorly! I mean, come on! Even RAGE ran at 60fps on the 360, and that was on the same engine 3 years ago (even more if you consider how long the game was in development). I think this is one of those cases where they either should have kept it last gen or current gen only! Imagine what they could have accomplished, had they put all their time and effort into developing the game for PS4, X1 and PC only!
We can woulda ,shoulda, coulda, every game. This is what we got, all that other speculation is moot. Is the framerate issues enough to kill the game for you? I thought I read somewhere the devs were working on patches to improve performance issues. Have you heard anything about that?
Turning around wasn't that idtech5 Achilles heel? Yepp.. http://www.reddit.com/r/Gam...
Playing on the X1, looks fine to my eyes, and the performance hits have not ruined the game, so I am loving the game. Is it perfect, hell no, no such thing as that, this is the closest we have gotten to RE1 since RE1.
yeah its actually really bad abd noticibke the texture pop in on os4
Crap game. Resident evil rip off and that was shi.t aswell
I'm surprised to see how it's very well optimized on PC. Especially after a couple of weeks ago when they announced that 4GB VRAM requirements. Turns out you only need 2GB to play on high lol.
PC always wins
True, but I didn't quite expect it to win this dramatically this early in the generation. Games like Thief, Alien Isolation and The Evil Within all have performance issues on the consoles despite only targeting 30fps. The PC versions look much better and I can run those first two games at well over 60fps. I haven't played The Evil Within yet, but word is it isn't too demanding and runs much much better than the console versions.
gtx 580 1.530Gbvram,i5 2500k stock game runs 30fps lock without dips on Max setting 1080p.The game uses 1.5gb vram on maximum settings and no more than 2gb of ram.Frankly dont understand how the game run with poor framerate on new gen consoles Ps4,Xboxone when a GTX 580 a three generation old card run better than the new consoles.Lazy work from developers! Not to mention that the game for consoles cost $60,69.99€,£40 and i got it for PC for 27€.Paying more for console version and having worst performance is just playing with consumers money ,theres no respect from developers and publishers,thats the reason people should not support certain crap releases.
barely any difference lol, if sony or microsoft could afford to lose money and made these consoles high end pc gaming would cease to exist, lol I dont hate pc gaming but that is the truth
Frame rate is where the real difference is at.
