A graphics and frame rate test of Anthem's demo shows that BioWare's new loot-based game actually runs better on the PS4 Pro than the Xbox One X.
Somebody tested a buggy demo to make an article....yikes it really has been a dry run for gaming i see.
A demo is supposed to br a bite to taste the full meal ... if doesnt taste good the cook doesnt get to say oh but i am not done cooking yet ....
Terrible analogy. In that case it would be a test dish. A mere taste of an incomplete dish.
But the demo was based on a beta build. So it doesn’t tell shit.
This is a slanted comparison because they aren't running at the same settings.
How do you eat a meal before its finished? Not a good analogy at all.
Love my pro. Best frame rates you can get for multiplat games on average. (Not counting PC)
@Babadook - you keep telling yourself that if it makes you happy. The rest of us will deal with the reality.
Either way it won’t be very different no matter which one looks slightly better. So everyone calm down .
In this case, the dish was a beta but they called it a demo.
@Chris. You are the one unable to deal with reality. The track record at DF is crystal clear at this point. I could probably name 50 examples where pro had the more stable frame rate. Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Monster Hunter World, Ace Combat 7, Anthem demo, Apex Legends. And on and on and on. Amazing that for each title this happens the xbox fanboys will deny the trend. Lol.
To all those saying it was a beta - you clearly don’t know the difference between a beta and a demo! Maybe it isn’t your failt as so many developers bring out beta tests now so they get free QA. However, this was a demo - final code at that point but just a small chunk of the game. Sure, changes may have been mad eBay now based on feedback, but that build was the latest code at the time, not beta.
A demo is a demo ... it is representative of the final product and if it is not then it was a private beta .... either wanted to mislead ppl with this incentive pre order but couldn't bother to release a demo with the final code or are just using this being based on early code to mislead us... yes a cook wont ask you to taste a meal before it is done but thas what they dis by caling this crap a demo
LOL bad analogy
Let’s use the same logic Sony fanboys use when there’s countless articles that are in favor of the Xbox One X version of a multiplat: Sony must’ve paid for Anthem to run better, or paid for the article to favor the PS4 pro lmao
lmaol omg they are going off of a demo lmaol wow... thank you next
Well, it's a demo. But not only Pro version runs better than XboneX, also base PS4 version has more consistent performance than XboneX. Of course, base Xbone is the worst : https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Digital foundry found significant flaws in the demo for both versions but they even noted it's not final code and they would hold off on casting W verdict until retail Basically ps4 has an unlocked frame rate but greater frame pacing issues one X is frame rate locked at 30. But you can force the PS pro to run in 1080 getting up to 50 fps
X version is locked to 30 fps? LOL It's not. You can't twist what is showed in BOTH videos. Richard from DF said in video ( around 1:30 ) : PS4 Pro was running at the higher framerate than the X1X and this is something i wanted to reconfirm..." At the beginning X version can't hold 30 fps for more than 1 sec. and has drops to 25 fps. How is that locked 30 fps? Also X1X vs. XIS DF video : https://youtu.be/GXD2rUzI0l... X1X can't hold 30 fps. It's not locked. Also, not so close to 30 like PS4 ( Pro ) version John Linneman : "I think when we first posted our findings on X1X there was a lot of surprise out there that the performance seems to be subpar..." Stop lying! Thanks!
Also Richard said here : https://youtu.be/GXD2rUzI0l... "I'm not particularly satisfied with the Xbox performance level here and there was lot of controversy about the fact that the X1X IS OUTPERFORMED by the PS4 Pro, but the bottom line is that the base PS4 IS FASTER than the X1X as well..."
Dry is an understatement
Great scientific method you used right there!
This is maybe a new low in gaming!
Its a low but it sure as **** is not new
Not really. They are running the game at a Native 4K on the Xbox One X. If they wanted better performance they could always lower the resolution.
But the XBX has the "True 4K Power". It can not play a game in sub "True 4K".
Yeah but 20fps difference? That's alot.
But I thought that resolution was the most important thing in gaming? /s
Yeah did they seriously write an entire article based on two different preview builds?? Xbox One X version will surely have performance options in the final build. Who let this guy finish writing this article
:Sees Game Rant: :moves on to next article:
Are they both running at the same resolution?
No, higher on X.
which is sort of the point. If the One X was given the same performance options that the Pro has, then there would be no discussion. Saying that the Pro running at something like 1080p is a better option than the One X when it's running natively at 4K is ridiculous and straw pulling at best. If they decide to give the One X the ability to run the game at 1080p for non-4K owners, what version would be the best?
Pro still runs better at 1800p
...well, it does. Little crybabies
In a way PS is not frame rate locked but the X is when the PS pro is changed to 1080p itbcw. Output at 50 fps but if you run at dynamic 2160 you'll get 35 fps X is frame locked which means always 30 hard lock but native dynamic 4k not 4k locked
No. It's sub 30.
Who gives a crap games crap on any platform
Interestingly I only played the PS4 pro version and thought it ran/looked like a$$.
Then I guess one X its 4K ass because the DF comparison showed they were near identical
Of course you did lol.
Seemed like it was moving in slow motion. Maybe servers were overloaded. I flew around for a few minutes and switched to Apex.
Runs fine on PS4 pro,.. looks like ass though or nothing really special. PlayStation exclusives will do that though.
I personally believe years of hard work went into this, I don't know the development length but Im under the impression that it dates back to before Destiny 1 released.
@Jakens Don't quote me on this, but I want to say that development on Anthem started once Mass Effect 3 released.
Lol, I see you lelo!
No you can't. I'm invisible :)
Gah! Then who was that!!!!
I played it on both and I didn’t see much of a difference. It makes zero sense for a game to run better on inferior hardware. This will be fixed I’m sure. The game ran like crap on both consoles imo.
Actuall I’m certain it’s cause they aiming for 4K on X they should just scale the resolutiondown sure it will resolve that
You know this whole article is about the demo of an old build, not the actual final game, we will see on Feb. 22 and there will be plenty of DF videos about it.
Lets be honest, the demo ran like ass regardless of platform, I tried it on the PS4 Pro and on my gaming PC and it's poorly optimised. Supposedly it's an old build though and the final product should be better optimised, I hope that's true for the sake of those buying it.
Uhhh yea....DEMO is the keyword here. Dont jump the gun when it comes to benchmarks. Whoever wrote this clearly only has a ps4.
Huh it did run better on Pro but X has the resultion beat. I’m sure it will be fixed by launch
We can only hope.
I am not gonna blame Microsoft for this one, as much of a Sony fanboy as I might be. This just means that Bioware has done a shit job optimizing the game for the XB1X, pure and simple. This bodes badly for the game as a whole on BOTH platforms.
I don't know if it is optimization. It is more of the fact that they value visuals over performance.
"It is more of the fact that they value visuals over performance." So, they're not OPTIMIZING the game?
Does anybody care that much anyway? It's EA for God's sake... People should be united in not supporting them, not fighting over pixels.
