Rise of the Tomb Raider releases in a couple of days, and NeoGAF’s ‘MaLDo ‘ (better known for his incredible mod for Crysis 2) has shared two comparison gifs between the PC and the Xbox One version.
The PC version looks amazing.
Yes it does. The XB1 version looked amazing as well. Still not sure why people are arguing and complaining about this game. It'll be a great game on all 3 platforms in the end. Those are the facts.
Yep sure does. As expected. Glad people are going to be able to play the game everywhere. @nowitzki Knock it off dude.. You acting all excited is behavior no different than the ones you talk about.
Both versions looks amazing
Yep. They did a great job making the Xbox One version look that good. Fair play.
They used a Xbox 360 screenshot for this comparison though. Not indicative of the xbox one version.
Definitely a gorgeous game. The Xb1 version held up nicely.
Both Look fab
Looks awesome! A lot more detail and the lighting looks really good. Any chance this is free on pc for xb1 owners of the game??
I played a nice chunk of this on my brothers Xbox, it has improved on the previous in every way. Looked great on the Xbox already can't wait to play it on pc.
What do you expect? :)
I would never pay an extra £300-400 for slightly better graphics.
I think you're paying £300-400 for more than just slightly better graphics lol.
Are you literally that blind? Or did you not even bother to click the link?
Better graphics and framerates. And probably cheaper over time since online is free.
Games are really cheap as well. Steam sales always have way better deals.
Not really much in the way of comparisons. Besides, PC's SHOULD look better than either console. It would be an insult if it wasn't the case.
It's NEOGAF the home of trying to stir the communities pot. Some people just want to shadow one version over another to say it's not worth owning an XBOX ONE. This is why we see so many top articles about ROTTR. Bitterness and hatred. I own the game on PC and Xbox.
What I find most interesting is that it seems they even upped geometry by use of tesselation!
Both look incredible, I already have it on XB1 so I wont need the PC version however I am loving Homeworld Deserts of Kharak
The XB1 version looks glorious and the PC version look perfect. GGWP 4 Crystal Dynamics!
this is clearly comparing 360 vs xboxone, the x1 version looks nothing like that but does look like the so call pc shot, those who actually played the game knows
Is this true? I don't know but seems more possible. The "PC" version looks a LOT better than the "X1" version...more than it should unless the dev's did a nice overhaul for the PC version. Yeah, I'm not educated enough to know if what you say is true but it certainly seems more probable.
When playing on Xbox it looks much better than that.
Yes the XBox version does look better, looks like a filter has been applied to the xbox version to make it look dull and muddied. It does indeed look like 360vs X1 version of the game, but then again, I am not a pixel counter and would rather just play the game and have my fun. Neo-Gaf has changed for the worse. I remember going there to discuss certain topics and now its lost its way. The PC version will undoubtedly look much better. Its not even a question to think it wont.
The lighting look over saturated on the X1 version. THe PC version does have much better detail on the textures and better detail in the environment itself...which would be expected. I was surprised at the difference though, as the X1 versions looked off compared to what it's capable of, and I felt it actually looked worse than the remastered versions which came out at launch...so I'm skeptical if this comparison is actually worthwhile or done in such a way that is legit.
Probably because they are using XBox 360 screenshots not not really XB1. No doubt the PC version will look better, but when a game already looks amazing when it launched, does it really matter? I find no reason to even touch the PC version at this point. Maybe when it's on STEAM for $5 I'll check it out again.
The only way I could get the original screenshot would be if I started again, instead I went to a base camp and got the same area on my Xbox now http://s21.postimg.org/hvt9... Way better then what they were showing
Don't fall for that bais article, this is clearly the Xbox 360 version.. That resolution is horrible, and look at those textures.. Even in the second gif, foliage, skulls and textures are missing from the so called Xbox one version.. Play through the game on that level, and you'll see.. Start at 27:00 mark http://youtu.be/snSbguhHCic
looks like you "found them out." It just bugs me as to why people do this. Is it because its not on the other platforms as of yet?
People just hate Xbox, then they make articles like this and people run with it because most want to believe it anyway. Maybe to say, see we told you it's underpowered! Just shows you how blind people want to be..
The video you posted looks more like what I'd expect from the X1. I noticed the tree disappearing in the one shot, and wondered why given that the only reason to take it out was memory contraints. The foliage should have been better in the supposed X1 versions as well, and while I can see the PC version looking better, it was hard to believe it was such a significant amount. The lighting I could understand being better on the PC, and that to me, was why I questioned the comparison because it seemed way too over saturated...even for an 360 game TBH. Texture detail I could accept overall, but the rest just didn't add up.
I noticed it looked too bad to be the X1 version as well. I never ran into any textures that muddy. Its one thing to not like something. But when you have to lie on it, that's a new low.
How is this even a fair comparison?
My guess: They're two unedited images of the same location, shot from the same angle, shown back to back.
Wow, wasn't honestly expecting it to be this different. I mean, it's a given that the PC version would be better resolution and frame rate wise but I never would have thought that they'd include much better textures, tessellation, more and higher detailed props and assets, etc. I was just expecting sort of a X1 port...not something that looks like more a "true" PC version. Very impressive.
I advise you to look at on your on TV. The Xbox version is 1080P and it looks beautiful. Whomever uploaded those images it doesn't the the Xbox in justice.
We all know PC us king, but Xbox did a good job considering it still provides 720p or 30fps games.
I have a high end PC and an xbone but I bought this on the xbone just because I'm an incredibly impatient person. It does obviously look better on the PC but I was pretty happy with how it looked on my console as well. Well, the first part of the game anyways. The environments seem to get really boring and lackluster once you get to the middle of the game unfortunately :(
I think these comparisons are pointless, but to a point it shows that although PS4 and Xbox One are "underpowered" "PCs" for their price they hold a good spot for gaming. I love my consoles, but also love my PC.
I am Running 2 gtx 970superclock z87x oc motherboardand 16 gigs of ram and a 4k 55 inch Samsung tv all my games run in 4k all day ever day
Finished it on Xbox One & it really is a nice looking game. I couldn't wait for it to come on PC & I have an Xbox so I got it on release day, but now it's here I will play through it again as it was so good & I got a cheap Nvidia code. It will obviously be the best version without doubt, stupid comparing a console to a gaming PC.
PC pre-load is now available.
Ridiculously immersive game and beautiful to boot. We got hit by a blizzard this weekend so I ended up playing for 14 hours straight. I haven't done that in a very long time. That's how good this game is. I almost wish I had waited for the PS4 version. Will probably look better.
That aint the xbox one version, i played it myself and this isnt the xbox one game. It is the Xbox360 version of the game.
Yes, I think most gamers realize that now. The game looks great on the XB1 and on the PC. I honestly don't see the problem. XB1 version definitely looks a lot better then the XBox 360 version they are showing. I'm glad I didn't have to wait for anything.
I played it, I loved it and beat it on my XBOX One, I don't want it on any other platform. It looks great and played great all the way through. These articles are from journalist's and web pages that really need hits and don't have anything real to contribute.
It is actually pretty alarming how far ahead PC is than consoles right now. But then again the graphics cards that produce those images cost double what consoles cost. I still think it is worth it though!
As with 90% of the fan base, I'll wait for the PS4 release
It's all about 60 fps for me and that widescreen 21:9 2560x1080. It hurts to go back to regular 1920x1080. PC gaming isn't cheap, just for the monitor and video card I have it cost around 700ish
My video card was over a 1000 haha. But so worth it. Not just gaming but it also renders scenes in Blender, Maya etc really nicely which was the main reason I got it.
PC, no contest. Xbone version just looks bad. Ive seen it in person and people are trying to damage control this hard but xbone doesn't come anywhere close to PC. Should have waited for PC or PS4 version.
...except that's the 360 version, and if you had seen it in person you'd know. It appears you were in such a rush to bash the game you were willing to lie.
http://s21.postimg.org/hvt9... That is the same area on my xbox yesterday
Naturally, PC *can be* the definitive platform for games, so the results here really are not at all surprising. Unfortunately, that also means that, when the PS4 version is released, it'll be underwhelming relative to PC, period. Regardless, I'm sure every version of this game will have clarity and run well. If the frame rate and top resolution options are your priority, by all means, PC is the way to go. For the rest of us, we're pretty content with the fact that the game plays great.
That's the Xbox 360 version of Rise of Tomb Raider. Enough of the Xbox One bashing, it's getting old.
This looks like 360 version?
Considering the source of the GIFs it wouldn't surprise me if it was the 360 version just to troll people
Comparing the PC version to X1 Version is like comparing Beyonce to Solange one will impress you the other one not so much
Serious question....are we sure this is legit? Really it just looks like one has a massive contrast problem and the other doesn't. Is the one that's extra bright the PC version? Because that isn't even close to what it looked like on my 70" Samsung 4k. The game looked fantastic (and more importantly was an amazing game with fantastic gameplay).
Both look good to me. But it is obvious this is the 360 version and considering the source of the GIFs it shouldn't surprise anyone that they r trying to pass off the 360 version as the Xb1 version. Good old NeoGAF
Neogaf is a cesspool of ponies. You can't be seriously trust them for anything regarding Xbox One? You talk bad about XB1 = sure okay no problem but it's instant ban if you talk poorly of the PS4. Going there is like reading about vaccination on an anti-vac website. Or learn about evolution on a Scientology website. Consider the source. Neogaf is anti-Microsoft, anti-XB1. It's a propaganda site for Sony.
agreed. But those articles will get clicks so they show up on here
This look more like 360 vs One comparison tbh. Yup that one is the 360 and the other is pc or XO. Coming from someone that has actually played the game and own.
I love Pc !
