It's true, Xbox gamers can't stop talking about resolution & pixel counting. I have an X & PS4 exclusives still look better than almost everything offered in 4k on the X. Disappointing to see the same group who used to focus on games take up the argument that they once hated & now can only talk about 4k

MasterCornholio89d ago

Sony set up some really good policies that allowed their 1st party studios to produce these results. Microsoft and Sony don’t handle gaming the same way.

Skull52189d ago (Edited 89d ago )

The low resolution of the base XBO didn’t do games justice. Now with XBOX enhancements you can put games like Halo 5, Quantum Break and GoW 4 up against anything Sony has to offer and they stand strong.

Hell, if they patched up Ryse it would easily still be one of the best looking games of the generation.

Razzer89d ago

I've played Ryse, QB and GoW 4 on PC with superior hardware to One X. No. Simply no. They fail in comparison to HZD, God of War, and Uncharted 4.

I own both a Pro and an Xbox One X. I have a subscription to GamePass so I'm able to play many of Microsoft's console exclusives.

With that said I haven't found any game to be clon par with titles like God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn on the Xbox One X.

It's not just resolution that makes PS4 exclusives look so good. It's many other graphical features as well.

@Razzer

Completely agree with you there.

Skull52189d ago

And I own and have played all those Sony exclusives, they aren't any better looking. You're fanboying out to say that PS4 exclusives are in this whole other realm of graphical fidelity, it isn't remotely true.

Razzer89d ago (Edited 89d ago )

"You're fanboying out to say that PS4 exclusives are in this whole other realm of graphical fidelity, it isn't remotely true."

I didn't say they were "in this whole other realm of graphical fidelity". I said they were better looking than Xbox console exclusives on more powerful PCs. And they simply are. This is why Sony's studios are unmatched.

@Skull

"You're fanboying out to say that PS4 exclusives are in this whole other realm of graphical fidelity, it isn't remotely true."

And I own an Xbox One X and PS4 Pro so I can directly compare the exclusives that each has. There's no need to insult me just because I have a different opinion than yours. Thankfully being a multiconsole owner makes my opinion legitimate since I'm able to experience all that each platform has to offer.

With that said I said "With that said I haven't found any game to be on par with titles like God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn on the Xbox One X. "

Here's the meaning of "on par"

"On (a) par with definition is - at the same level or standard as (someone or something else)."

https://www.dictionary.com/...

Now as you can see I clearly stated "not as good as" however I never specified how much better the games look which is what your implying. Your the only one who mentioned that by exaggerating what I've said.

Hopefully that helps.

MS really owes its die hard fans some huge games... I think they care more about subscription numbers than games though...

JesusBuiltmyHotrod89d ago

They don't owe anyone anything, they keep buying xboxs out of some twisted loyalty instead of a better product, they have themselves to blame. It's like the xbox fans who always whine about the lack of Japanese games on Xbox...why are you buying xbox if you want diversity and Japanese games ...

fiveby989d ago

I also own a Pro and an X. As much as I like them both, I will surely be getting RDR2 for the Pro. Image fidelity on both consoles is very good on the Sony 900E television. But the games library on the Pro is just so far superior I generally game there. I can't just walk away from Sony who has encouraged their 1st & 2nd party studios to take risks and create amazing games. Maybe MS will allow new studios they acquired to spread their wings some.

Baza89d ago

Does Xbox X owners even care? All I hear about is the power of X.

ILostMyMind89d ago

@JesusBuiltmyHotrod
Or why do someone wants play with PS gamers if he bought an XB console...

FinalFantasyFanatic89d ago

I'd rather just give my hard-earned money to Sony since they keep giving me what I want.

Lol ok. I have a One X and a PS4 Pro running on a 65” OLED 4k HDR screen. Not only does the One X make literally every game look sharper but it also brings better rendering: more particles: better shadows, higher res texture maps, more consistent frame rates, sometimes it does 4k/60 on AAA exclusives with actual real graphics.... I’ll agree that PS4 has a higher number of quality exclusives but when it comes to graphics the X beats the Pro hands down. The truth is those PS4 exclusives would look even better on an X.

Even RDR2 with Sony’s exclusive marketing rights will still look better on the X.
This doesn’t even take into account all the extra stuff you get on the X vs the Pro: 4k Blu-ray, Atmos, custom controller configuration per controller per user, hdmi 2.2 support with auto lag and variable refresh rates etc.

dRanzer89d ago

Ps4 exclusives will look better on the X? Well you could only wish
If ppl want 4k/60fps games they play them on pc.
Ps4&pc are the best choice imo

bluefox75589d ago

Yet there's still nothing available on X that looks as good as HZD or GoW...

fiveby989d ago

Frankly very few could tell image fidelity differences when viewing at couch distances. So ultimately it comes down to games library, track record, and who do you trust. To date, Sony has been far superior with creative studios producing amazing games. Temporary pixel count superiority for X1X is not enough to sway from the vastly superior library. And once next gen launches in 12-24 months then pixel counting will be a wash. Don't get me wrong my X1X is really nice but I still gravitate to my Pro more than my X.

Razzer89d ago

All that power and the wizards at Sony studios are able to somehow surpass it.

richie007bond89d ago

100% agree, since the PS4 launched it was 1080p this 1080p that , now that the tables have turned resolution doesn't matter anymore lol you couldn't make this stuff up, X1X GAMES that utilise the power blow any PS4 game out of the water and no matter the excuses by the fanboys X1X is a beast, i have a ps4 pro also and have all the exclusives and i was more impressed by Tomb raider graphically than i was by any PS4 pro game and that includes god of war which looks good but textures on the snow and ground look like soup, the characters look fantastic dont get me wrong but everything else suffered due the base model ps4, i was not impressed with god of war.

Baza89d ago

Funny cause the best looking games this gen are Pro exclusive.

Razzer89d ago

“i was more impressed by Tomb raider graphically than i was by any PS4 pro game”

LOL. It is getting deep in here.

AspiringProGenji89d ago

Xbox X does render 3rd party games better, but this is about “exclusives,” which PS4 is leading atm. It is a shane that all that power is being helf back by only enhancing third party games and not the exclusives, which should have been Ms focus from the start. Sony exclusives look esy better than Xbox despite the weaker hardware. That’s because they got the talent

JesusBuiltmyHotrod89d ago

Someone never played GOW, Uncharted or Horizon, all look better than anything on Xbox.

Hungryalpaca89d ago (Edited 89d ago )

Literally none of what you said is relevant to the topic at hand.

“Sony exclusives look better than anything on the competition” - topic

“Well all these third party games look better than they do on PS4”! - you

That’s off topic dude. You’re coming off as REALLY salty.

Ceaser985736189d ago (Edited 89d ago )

Still with the Powaah of Xbox X , The Xbox is far behind?? Xbox X should have picked up the pace rt? but it didn't. Do you know WHY?
Yes no denying the powaah of Xbox x and why it shouldn't. The spec are higher than that of the Pro... but again its no denying that games looks good on PRo too.. And exclusives looks better than anything from the Xbox campaign.. You can't make it sound like X makes the Pro looks bad.. If that was the case nobody would have bought the Ps4 and With X launch, the Xbox would have dominated.. But that's not the case..

Dude comeon! you don't have lie here... If you are now comparing Tomb raider with the GOW quality.. That's blasphemy.. lol! either you haven't played GOW or you are just hating the game for doing better than your expectation and better then any games Xbox has to offer.. I understand an exclusive selling 3.1mil copied in 3 days is something unbelievable..

That's because there's more to visuals than just resolution. Raw horse power doesn't automatically make Lara Croft's facial expressions more believable than Nathan Drake's for example, 4k or not. That takes talent.

MasterCornholio89d ago (Edited 89d ago )

This guy gets it.

And I love your example with motion capture technology. Naughty Dog are masters at animations.

Nintendo and Sony have the best exclusives IMO, and Sony has the best looking exclusives on top of that. The only way I could justify getting an X is if I just plain do not care about exclusives.

PS4 Pro: All multiplats with great exclusives in Dynamic 4k with pro support.

Switch: Great exclusives with some multiplats and the option of portability.

X1X: Best 4k image for multiplats, lackluster exclusives, lackluster Japanese support.

Opinions may vary, but this is how I see it.

Razzer89d ago

Shouldn’t be a surprise. Sony simply has better studios.

JesusBuiltmyHotrod89d ago

It makes the X a pointless machine imo...had one and sold it, best looking and best games were still on playstation..Not sure what MS is thinking as a platform holder not having any games to push their new 4k box.

_LarZen_89d ago

Hehe, so you got a powerful PC for all the multiplatform games then. Because for those who dont then the X is THE place to play everything else until 2020+.

JesusBuiltmyHotrod89d ago

Really? I cannot play GOW, Horizon, Spiderman on the X and it look,s better than anything on the X....The PRO is the best place to play the BEST games. The Xbox lacks them.

mkis00789d ago

Best looking games, or the ability to play all those games + ps4 exclusives...

TheSaint89d ago

Do you fanboys realise that only a small percentage actually own an X?

Or does that important piece of information not matter?

Tankbusta4089d ago (Edited 89d ago )

I don't have a ps pro so I cannot comment(day one og ps4) but Gears 4 and forza horizon 3 are pretty darn good looking with their upgrades on the X.

Also I understand this is going to get down votes from petty people... The Xbox onedoesn't have the amount of great exclusives like the ps4 does but it doesn't mean the exclusives they do have look awful. Grow up fan babies

Razzer89d ago

“petty people...”

“Grow up fan babies”

Irony

Hungryalpaca89d ago

Seems like you’re the petty fanbaby here.

TheSaint89d ago

I don't think it's about how they look, it's about getting the same Halo, Gears and Forza over and over and over.

There is very little diversity on the Xbox, I own both a PS4 and an Xbox, I choose to play on my PS4 far more than I do my Xbox purely because there is more choice in games.

People seem to like to forget that they are GAMES consoles. Not resolution consoles.
