They're identical. So much for true 4K MS is boasting about.

Angainor7539d ago

It's up to the developers if they will take advantage of the specs. Some choose not to because simply don't have enough time but i guess it's very hard to understand it.

It's actually pretty easy to change a few sliders within your engine.

Show us documentation on these easy sliders

bouzebbal539d ago (Edited 539d ago )

identical and Pro is cheaper..
Pro version is therefore the best ONE! (no pun intended lol)

LexHazard79539d ago

nx is a sony developer and know all things game development requires. 🤣😂

MagicBeanz539d ago

When the "its up to the developer" excuse runs out what will be next?

Ulf539d ago


Sliders are easy. Marketing deals with the leading console marketshare holder are not so easy to change, if you get my drift.

The grass looks a bit sharper in the xbox image. But why are neither images in 4k? These are 1152p. Doesn't show resolution then.

fr0sty539d ago

look at the ground textures on that second image, XBO:X vs. Pro, Pro's are actually sharper. Probably has to do with variations in the camera angle, though, there is no technical reason this should be the case. Otherwise, identical. As for those saying the images aren't 4K, this is true, but isn't that super sampling at 1080p on all games supposed to be an advantage of XBO:X?

indysurfn538d ago

I was about to comment that PS4P looked better then I realized that I'm looking at it through my 1080P gaming laptop. I need to see it on my 4k tv instead.

LAWSON72538d ago (Edited 538d ago )

Developers are not taking advantage of the boost, and it costs more than the Pro. That is is kind of the problem. Just because the system is more powerful means nothing when it runs game the same because devs don't put any effort into it.

XanderZane538d ago

Because the game hasn't been patched yet for the XBox One X. This is just the XBox One game running on the XBox One X without any patches or enhancements. It's upscaled to 4K. If SquareEnix patches it with native 4K and other enhanced features, then we can compare both games.

snoopgg538d ago

No its just hard to achieve this even on the beast. This is what you fail to understand.

Babadook7538d ago


That would explain things if that was confirmed. It's not though. The assets would be worse than Pro not very slightly better.

I like how MS is at fault for all things bad in the industry. Lol not matter your argument the facts remain there will be more native 4K games. The ones complaining either wasnt follow Scorpio or just want to stir shit up as usual.

Aenea539d ago

Am sure those 4 games will be worth the extra $100 to $150!

mcstorm539d ago

I think as time goes on we will see better games on the Xbox one as the developer can now make it for Windows 10 and port or to the Xbox one x and s easer that from the ps to Xbox so I see more developers using this over the next few years.

freshslicepizza539d ago (Edited 539d ago )

"Am sure those 4 games will be worth the extra $100 to $150!"

4 games?

"Yeah, I've noticed I've been a tad less objective lately, I will dial it down."

Well that didn't last too long.

mandingo539d ago

@Aenea. I mean, 400 dollars for a half way decent 4k machine plus 100 dollars for a 4k blue-ray player is a pretty damn good deal in my book. You wont find that anywhere!

Rude-ro539d ago

Hard to say since Microsoft has less games.
Sony actually could still have more 4k games.
As far as power... a turd in 4k is still a turd.
Games are what matter and Microsoft can not touch Sony on that end as far as quantity or quality.

Aenea539d ago


At least I try when was the last time you did, hmm?

nicsaysdie538d ago

The thing about facts is, they have to be provable. Right now everything anyone is saying about X1x is speculation.

Si2k78538d ago

DRM, forced always online, forced Kinect bundle, $499 starting price of Xbox one at luanch.. etc. Microsoft has built quite the rep for themselves, and its not a good one.

snoopgg538d ago

The sometimes native true 4k beast. Lol

FinalFantasyFanatic538d ago


Microsoft dropped the ball alot at the beginning of this gen, but they should have built up more moment by now, it's not the WiiU we're talking about (They really need to secure some more exclusives and stop gutting themselves by keeping some games only on Xbox and have them playable no where else).

PistolsAtDawn539d ago

They never ever ever said it would be every game. In fact they have gone out of their way to say it's up to devs. There are other ways to boost game performance other than simple pixel count. Chances are you aren't even looking at these pictures on a 4k screen. The real test is in motion...but I can already see that shading is much better on the X1X version

iDadio539d ago

Caught in a very strange place where they can't win.

If they came out and was pushing the native 4K then every game that isn't native would be rammed down their throat.

If they push that's it's all down to developers then your asking people to spend all that money on a luck based system of some games being 4K and some arnt.

Either way people are going to kick up a fuss, but seeing as the console is aimed at a niche market it doesn't really matter, generation is already over in terms of market share and publishing power.

Aenea539d ago

So far it looks like the devs think it's a waste of your money....

Saigon539d ago


Ummm...isn't that what happened when Sony. For months before the system was announced and months after it was announced many kept throwing that narrative against Sony. But now that the shoe is on the other foot, suddenly it's ok; or they, MS, get a pass.

AmUnRa539d ago (Edited 539d ago )

Shure you everybody knows you are an Xboxfanboy, thats what counts.

xfiles2099538d ago

No what they said was 4k no compromises well if they are using checkerboarding then that is a compromise so as usual Microsoft is a liar

darthv72538d ago

MS said no compromise 4k. As in THEIR games. 3rd party devs can use compromises or not. It's their choice.

foxdie2014538d ago

x1x aint worth the extra 100 bucks not includig taxes they got no games every year lieing phil talks about new games 1st party and exclusive but never shows shit every year same sob story he cancelled scalebound and said hyped got it cancelled and also said by himself why do you care about 60fps good job phil

JackBNimble538d ago

Would you say that advertising a console as the only "True 4k" is a lie or just misleading?

rainslacker538d ago

If the support that comes to the PS4P is any indication, it's probably not going to be so compelling to write home about. 1st party is where it will shine. There are some devs which do make the extra effort, but otherwise, the bare minimum is usually what we see.

Are you watching this in a 4k monitor? because you can't see 4k if your screen isn't 4K. So how do you know the difference?

MegamanXXX539d ago (Edited 539d ago )

343_Guilty_Spark face 😁

It's because of the laptop cpu that's why they look identical😅

solideagle539d ago

is your computer/laptop 4k to identify the difference?

Zeref539d ago

No they're not. I bet they only upgraded the resolution. But you can clearly see more detail in the foliage on the XB1X

xfiles2099538d ago

I can not tell a difference Games will pretty much look identical from a visual Stand point on the Pro and X1X
If you say oh I can see a difference you are lying to yourself

shiva1538d ago

After final evaluation i confirm that you have no issues with your eyes or the glasses that you have. There is no issues with the screen/monitor or tv. There is an issue in the brain, processing the image and the thougt of a mobile screen capable of showing 4k image is at fault. Please change your phone or view it in 4k tv or monitor

JasonKCK538d ago

DarkZane helps to actually know what you're talking about before posting.

headshotfrosty538d ago

Might want to go check again. Not trolling but there is definitely a sharper image on the X1X side. Just look at the assets with open eyes not goggles.

538d ago
Trekster_Gamer538d ago

Darkzane don't be a dumbass even you should realize it's up the developers to take advantage of the hardware and let's not kid ourselves the Xbox One X is head-and-shoulders more powerful than anything the PlayStation has to offer.

Xb1ps4538d ago (Edited 538d ago )

Just as identicall as the launch PS4 and Xbox launch games, right!?

XanderZane538d ago (Edited 538d ago )

The XBox One X version hasn't even been patch yet. This is just the XBox One version upscaled to 4K on the XB1X. If they are identical without a patch, imagine what the XB1X version will look like after it's patched.

The PS4 version has already been patched (Since Final Fantasy XV already supports 4K resolution on the PS4 Pro with additional enhancements like a higher resolution running at 1800 Checkerboard and improved ambient occlusion, anti-aliasing and anistropic filtering on PS4 Pro).

Come back with a comparison after the Xbox One X has been released and FF XV is completely patched like the PS4 Pro version.

They even tell you it's not patched at the bottom of the article.

"It will get support for the Xbox One X once it launches although there is no confirmation whether it will be native 4K or Checkerboard 4K, just like the PS4 Pro."

More like an unpatched version running on the Xbox One X that looks like the PS4 Pro. Pretty amazing that they can just put the XBox One disc into XBox One X and the game looks as good as the PS4 Pro without any enhancements or patches.

jrshankill538d ago

It's developer choice. Nothing to do with Microsoft. Try harder fanboy.

StormSnooper538d ago

Not any discernible difference to justify paying an arm and a leg.

Ashunderfire86533d ago

Yes look identical but most likely run the best out of all console versions ever!

Razzer539d ago

The first two pics are very different in view so hard to say, but the second two are more similar and look about the same.

Mbofa6om539d ago

Final comparing is framerate, i'm sure there are many people can see the frame rates with pictures only like theyvdid last three years ago
They saw the different between 900p & 1080p, 30fps and 24fps only with pictures

Bigpappy538d ago

It might actually be the same video. Hard to tell with E3. I would wait until the games release and see then if there are any differences.

CyrusLemont539d ago

Not even kidding but I saw one extra bush on the Xbox One X lol, at the moment they look identical but there might be improvements elsewhere, we'll have to see some footage. X1X might have a much more stable frame rate. It might operating at a native res as well, instead of checkerboarding.

frostypants539d ago (Edited 539d ago )

But what does checkerboarding vs. native matter if it looks the same? If moving forward MS can't present actual distinguishable visual advantages in games that reflect the price tag of the system, they will have a problem.

343_Guilty_Spark539d ago

They shouldn't look the same, especially in motion. Similar is not equivalent to same.

Grap539d ago

"checkerboarding vs. native"
it does matter in 4K tv.

BrettAwesome538d ago

Checkerboard 2160p looks amazing on a 4k set. I have a samsung un65ks9000 and a pro. I have seen plenty of both checkerboard and native. Checkerboard is sooo close to the real deal. But hey, even 1600p looks great! So much better than 1080p

CyrusLemont538d ago

It's not a big difference, although I know that it reduces distortion of picture in motion. Sort of like interlaced imagery vs progressive.

A stable framerate without judder would be a huge difference compared to PS4 Pro, as I know that version is plagued with it because of Digital Foundry and finishing myself on Pro.

Other improvements might be seen later towards release as we don't know just how far Square Enix is in optimising the title for the 1X. We've still got 5 months for Microsoft to convince us it's worthwhile purchase.

I think the biggest limiting factor for the 1X will be the assets on disc due to the 1S having to utilise the same stuff. If the 1X can use higher resolution textures, it might require a download pack? Wouldn't it? Especially if it can't fit on disc.

OmnislashVer36538d ago (Edited 538d ago )


There is no way they're remastering all of the assets for XB1X. Now if they're doing a PC version with upgraded assets they might. But they're likely not remastering a huge open world's assets when the game just came out. Honestly much of the FFXV team is probably switched over to S-E Business Division 1 now for FFVIIR.

rainslacker538d ago

"Similar is not equivalent to same"

Yeah....that's why Sony is selling more TV's than Samsung who's TV"s aren't quite as good.

People aren't always nitpicking minor differences. In fact, most people don't, and most people don't even notice.

$500 for a new bush seems like a good deal.

OmnislashVer36538d ago

I doubt native res. PS4 was dynamic 1080p and XB1X is 3x as powerful. Wouldn't it need to be 4x as powerful for 4k? And even so, it'd be dynamic.
