The differences will be hard to spot when the two versions are running side by side, as depicted in the video below, but it is evident when the two versions are compared via static images.
OK! It's Gamingbolt.
They forget that xbox one has an sharpening filter
@Muerte2494 It used to, but they have removed it around the lunch of titanfall. The only thing the sharpening filter did was cause jaggies to be more noticeable and made the image look more like sub hd because of it.
GamingBolt needs a sharpening filter on their opening video logo. That hurt my eyes.
To all those saying the video is null and void because it's youtube, don't forget, that BOTH of these vids are being displayed through the Youtube player... so your argument that is the player's fault is vapor. If there was more detail to show on the PS4 version, it would show. (Albeit at the mercy of the player's ability to render the detail) So basically, if both videos are being shown using the same capture device, media player, compression rate, and resolution- it would STILL carry over to this comparison in these "low quality" video players ... just at a lower level of detail for both videos being compared. It is, however, uncertain if the creator of this video is using tit-for-tat Exact neutral and balanced capture methods, compression resolution, etc.. etc.. but if it is a honest capture, then the graphics ARE indeed a tiny bit sharper on XB1. That or the videos are swapped to fool viewers. I wouldn't put it past most gaming journalism site to tamper and be dishonest tho. The same rule of thumb applies to ALL graphical comparisons to be honest, and unless we can PROVE that a genuinely un-biased comparison is being made, than we could ALL be played for fools. Anyway- who really cares THAT much about more detailed emblems on a horse carraige? Just enjoy your games people! Stop worrying so much about 3% more image quality.
Its sad just how dishonest and dumb both Gamingdolts and the Ms fanboys can be. They both know that there is nothing in that video that shows that the X1 version has better image quality. Yet because of their pathetic fanboyism, they wanna pretend like there is. Gamingdolt should be ashame of itself, either its that dumb or that full of sh*t. DF has already said that image quality is the same on both. The X1 has a slightly better framerate while running around but the PS4 has a slightly better framerate during the cutscenes and quite possibly during the fighting scenes too and the framerates seem to dip less on the PS4 version towards the edn of the video. But both are a disgrace frameratewise. Whats even sadder is how complacent and ok with the MS fanboys have become with sub-HD resolutions like 900p and sub-30fps framerates. Also while its true that the sharpening filter was toned down during the Titanfall update, it wasn't 100% completely eliminated (just like how they still haven't fixed the black crush problem).
Game comes out on PS4 with more than 600,000 pixels per frame resolution difference over the XO version... XO Fanboys: "Who cares, it's all about gameplay. You can't tell the difference in that extra 180p anyway unless you have a TV the size of my house." Article comes out saying that a game that was purposely gimped to run at the EXACT SAME RESOLUTION as the XO version is sharper on the XO version (which is an oxymoron in itself when you consider that resolution is what gives the image its clarity, and they both are the exact same resolution)... XO Fanboys: "It's way sharper! Devs cut back due to PS4's CPU being weaker (which it isn't, that was debunked long ago)." (again ignoring the fact that CPU bottlenecking will not be helped by reducing the number of pixels the GPU is drawing per frame.) Make someone look long enough for something they really want to see, and they will find it regardless of it is really there or not.
How the hell has Gamingbolt survived on this site for this long? Seriously, I've never seen such shoddy, lazy videogame "journalism" in my entire life. You're pausing YOUTUBE videos and making comparisons from the images? Are you kidding me? Even at 1080p, YouTube compresses the hell out of their videos. Making any claims about a game's IQ based on YouTube captures is beyond amateurish. You would need direct-feed PNG's for a fair comparison, you know, like what Digital Foundry uses? This is an image of Driveclub, the left image is taken from direct-feed gameplay from a Gamersyde, and the other two are taken from 1080p YouTube footage, and 1080p IG-player footage: http://i5.minus.com/iFERVz8... Bonus GIF: http://abload.de/img/1ahhkc... Between this article, and the "PS4 has no framerate issues" article (when it clearly DOES have framerate issues), and the countless other garbage reports, they should be embarrassed. Not to mentioned banned.
Click on the name of the website " Story quality? WTF" "Like the website? No"
Well done. http://img.pandawhale.com/1...
Despite your damage control outburst, that's beyond the point. It's clear the devs had to cut things back because of the CPU issue and since the PS4's CPU is slower, among other things, the PS4 version suffered the most. What makes a console capable, is more than simply counting pixels(GPU parts) This game is very advanced with scale and AI never done. The game is hardware taxing. Lets see how fast Eurogamer comes to the PS4's rescue with lies or more PS4 favorable spin. It will be interesting to see XB1 2015 SDK builds and the use of them in games by 1st and 3rd party devs. EDIT Oh and I hate Gamingbolt with a passion but the rest of gaming media has been no different. Oh and I was making a comment on reasons why not trying to prove it one way or the other i can see with my own eyes what looks better not here fighting hardened PS4 fanboys over what my eyes already know. DX12 will pull XB1 ahead and many other things vs resolution.
@MPOG Hey buddy! Long time no see! Haha. "Despite your damage control outburst," No damage control done here, just calling out a crappy site for their crappy tech comparisons. It has nothing to do with the fact they're saying the X1 versions looks sharper than the PS4 version. http://n4g.com/news/1619388... ^^^ Would you class this as damage control, too? I could have just not said anything, but I spoke out against them, despite the fact they were showing the PS4 is a POSITIVE light. But yeah...dat damage control bruh! "It's clear the devs had to cut things back because of the CPU issue and since the PS4's CPU is slower, among other things, the PS4 version suffered the most." Where's your evidence that the PS4 version has suffered the most? One look at the OT for this game over at NeoGAF and you'll see that both the X1 version and the PS4 version suffer from terrible pop-in and framerate drops. Jeez, after all this time you still deal in baseless, empty, accusations? "Lets see how fast Eurogamer comes to the PS4's rescue with lies or more PS4 favorable spin. " Haha, oh, now I get it. Gamingbolt = GOOD...but Digital Foundry = BAD, right? Why doesn't that surprise me one bit? You favour the site that uses compressed YouTube stills over the site that does professional, in-depth analysis articles purely because the former favours your console. I mean, I guess it has nothing to do with the fact that the PS4 is simply more powerful, no, it's ALL Eurogamers fault. Because reporting the facts as they appear = biased, right? *Rolls eyes* You're unbelievable. "It will be interesting to see XB1 2015 SDK builds and the use of them in games by 1st and 3rd party devs." Haha, the classic: "can't wait to see *insert magic sauce and date other than the present here*" comment. You really need some new material. Edit 2: "over what my eyes already know" Then why are you still here, posting the same old self-reassurance comments that you've been doing for literally years on this site across multiple accounts? Your comments don't match your actions, hombre. "DX12 will pull XB1 ahead and many other things vs resolution." Whatever you say! Lol.
@MorePowerOfGreen Holy Sh*t!.........this is your worst one yet now Im sure your one of misterx followers. You call Eurogamer/digital foundary liers, okay so all of those victories the xbox 360 had over ps3 last gen were lies too huh? Even with evidence that the ps4 is the better machine this time you somehow think the xbone is more capable, why? I don't get it. As always Ill wait for DF analysis, I wouldnt be suprised if the ps4 wins again as it should be because it has "better hardware".
So Power of Green believes the accuracy of youtube screen captures from Gamingbolt over an actual in depth analyst from Digital Foundry if it paints the Xbone in a prettier light? Credibility LOST. Stop talking PoG, youre hurting your side more than helping it.
@ more power of green the ac unity vid looks the same to me btw im sure sony has there own version of dx12 why wouldnt they it a common sence funtionalitty for gaming. and bro all i got 2 say is look at the parity of games like tomb raider, dragon age, etc its clear 2 see the ps4 has an edge with its hardware cus these r multiplats tht could look even but they dont. idk maybe im wrong maybe its harder 2 make games 4 x1 and devs r still figuring out how to utilize it maybe thts why thers parity in some multiplats to this point . Who knows
MorePowerOfGreen and you think dx12 will make multi gmaes better on xbo than ps4 ? well hello sony also working on somethin similar...team ICE say hi
There are a handful of sites on N4G that qualify as the worst. Gamingbolt is definitely near the top
Kind of ironic that the same could be said for some posters who troll every article of the console they don't support, eh, thewatercooler.
This site is always making up junk as usual, I am just glad I cancelled my pre order on this game the day the devs said they went for parity to avoid debate and stuff. Turns out they must have gone for lower than 30fps to avoid debate and stuff as well. I feel I dodged a bullet not getting this game. thats not ironic at all chris12.
Lol I knew straightaway it was gamingbot just reading the headline. Suprised these clowns don't say xbone has 'sharper colours' ;) Not clicking even checking that site no way
Someone got paid b/c Unity doesn't look near as good as Black Flag on PS4. Kinda sad.
Excellent analysis! Amazing! Best out there! /s
i could not see any difference?
Yeah, i don't see the difference.
Are you blind or just ignorant?!!! The Xbox version has subtitles.
Lol, I'm dead. Too funny Volkama.
Whups. Was not intended to be fatal lol
Honestly, it doesn't matter as better graphics aren't going to make this game a better game. I have been pretty disappointed in it, black flag was better.
Ubisoft cannot into character models.
I'll be honest and admit I don't see much of a difference.
What difference does it make oh my polished turd looks better than your polished turd
Question: Does my polished turd smell better than your polished turd? If not, then it doesn't make a difference.
how can one have better graphics when it has inferior hardware. If this is the case, we should boycott xbox and Ubisoft.
Apparently we're not missing much by boycotting this game lol. A man is happy they chose this one and not BF to start their BS. That one was fun but a man is burnt out on AC for now. Maybe in a few years.
Are you kidding me ? XBOX one looks better ? just play 1080p and press pause and you'll see a BIG difference. Here you go people who dont have eyes. http://oi61.tinypic.com/2mw...
Now that is sad. I play most of my games on pause. I can't believe they released a game as broken as this. PS4 for superior pause game play.
lol, so what you are saying is everyone is wrong and you are right? Early reports are the game is having frame rate issues on both consoles. You are the only one claiming that pausing the game somehow shows the Xbox One version being inferior in some way. Let's be honest here, when someone has to explain the difference and then somehow prove it, it's not very significant in the first place. The game looks and plays the same on both consoles according to what people are saying.
its the lower frame rates on xbone you should worry about. you will be playing those.
@S2K, http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... It looks like the PS4 version is the one with lower frame rates according to Digital Foundry.
"@S2K, http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... It looks like the PS4 version is the one with lower frame rates according to Digital Foundry." I can predict comments that say Digital Foundry has always lacked credibility. Either that or people will barely talk about DF's analysis since it doesn't say that the PS4 version categorically outperforms the X1 version. It is very interesting though, maybe the things Ubisoft were saying about CPU load holding back the PS4 version were true and the parity wasn't just them being lazy but that the X1 version is 900p because of it's GPU and the PS4 version is 900p because of it's CPU.
I see a lot of "crushed blacks"....LMAO! If I had some more bubbles I would have let that one fly but I was just kidding... But seriously, I don't see any sharper image for the Xbox One. These look exactly the same. And from what i am reading both versions are having a lot of framerate problems. In the earlier demos I saw a lot of clipping and collision issues. Maybe this Unity was a little too ambitious for Ubi to handle.
As an Xbox One fan I have to ask this question... Regardless of the platform why do we care about this shit when the graphical differences is so minor.
Because people want to be able to assure themselves that their console outperforms the competition. I've made comments before about it being a good thing that devs have been able to achieve the same on both systems in some games (e.g. GTA5) and have had a ton of disagrees. I've even read comments where people are saying they will boycott a game on PS4 because it performs the same on X1. It's pathetic and childish. If a game is the same on both systems, and not because of politics but because the devs were able to achieve what they intended on both, then that has to be a good thing. The only time it is not a good thing is if all you want to do is throw it in the faces of the people that haven't bought the same console as you and being bummed out by something like that is laughable.
waiting for patches to fix the frame rate issue before I even touch the game... A game that can't even run a solid 30 FPS is inexcusable in today's gaming world
But... movies run at 24FPS :O This is a sign our gaming industry is maturing and now can be accepted a mature entertainment industry like movie biz!
I've always been "mature" about my games. Why would I touch a game if all I hear is negativity from it? Its baffling. They rushed this game out the door. I'm a patient guy... I can wait for patches haha. Especially when I bought the digital gold edition for $89.99
I would disagree with that. PS4 looks sharper even at 900p at 11 seconds- you notice the mans shirt and the wall the PS4 image is more defined.
Are you feeling alright, mate? ;) But seriously, these look identical. Gamingbolt is grasping at non-existent straws here.
You forgot to add "/S" at the end my friend. You usually sit on the green side of the fence.
he's trying to get more bubbles
The Ps4 version is better from this video hands down, if you stop the video you will see, the Xbox one version is blurry every time the video is stopped and the picture on ps4 is more clear
I'm pretty sure that's motion blur.
Yeeaahh.. no. Definitely not buying this (imo) awful AC game btw. I'll be playing LBP 3 and DA: I next Tuesday instead ;-) #PS4NoParity #ScrewUbisoft
I think that Gamingbolt is on its way to being a banned site on here.
I own an X1 and I say meh. you can barely see. Still not sure if it's in my mind. They look pretty much exactly the same. What are we really comparing here?
Does anybody realy see a significant difference? If any please show!
Xboxone. The only next gen console that can't do ginger.
So you are telling me the x1 has more soul? as you know, gingers don't have souls http://media-cache-ec0.pini...
How the game or runs or which is better??? I don't understand why this would matter to a PS4 owner IMO no PS4 owner should be willing to trust giving the Ubisoft AssAsin's Creed Unity game developer and dime after what The game developer said about the Xbox One and how they didnt want the X1 users to feel "second class" and then blamed the console war "bullshit" on PS4 users. It's not that the developer said they didn't want the X1 users to feel second class I'm not sure why that needed to be said the X1 is the AC lead platform I'd hope they don't want "ANY" gamer to feel "second class" but the AssAssin's Creed Unity developer team did not clairify this so if you have a X1 and you don't mind all the issues that are being reported since the game release Framerate runs less than 30fps and constantly drops and runs choppy, screen tearing and has been reported as "unplayable" and that's on the X1. This PS4 is no better if not worse and you should expect it to be worse because the AssAssin's Creed Unity developers clearly could careless about the PS4 platform so you'll get what you pay for if you get this title. IMO no PS4 should want or get this title........... But it's your money!
I just hope that gamers are not buying this crap from ubisoft!!!
I'm just wondering why anyone bothered to write a story about a rehashed version of an average to below average annual franchise.
Sweet very cool.
Gaming bolt has as much credibility as a packet of twiglets!!!
But I like triglets, proper ones tho not the ones MR bean made.
twiglets* stupid phone lol and too late to edit
This shit is as stupid coming from pro-Xbox fanboys as it is when it comes from pro-Sony trolls. It is indistinguishable.
