Textures on miles at :45 look better on ps5.

Yeah his face looks better, but on the next comparison :48, it's weird, his suit and the building under him(with the cross) and the one he's leaning on looks noticeably more defined or higher res on PC, but the two buildings further in the distance are obviously more detailed on the PS5. I think PS5 is just more consistent while PC is putting more detail/res on closer objects.

Every Time I paused any frame, the PS5 side looked clear and PC side was blurry

andy8563d ago

What settings is this running on? Because nearly every comparison PS5 version looks more defined. Look at the windows at 0:48. Jacket and hat 0:36, even the image of Miles is far more detailed.

I think the first Spiderman showed that PS5 visual settings were equivalent to PC very high. But even then texture quality are just one factor to performance on PC.. I think we are going to need to wait and see what's being offered on PC before jumping to any conclusion.

andy8563d ago

It is one factor, of course there will be higher frame rates which is always amazing. But it'd strange to me that it looks graphically worse. Surely it isn't high settings there

BrockEmSockEm62d ago

It also looked like PS5 had HDR on and PC didn't

Father__Merrin63d ago

Look same to me pc depending 9n GPU obviously could do better effects but overall looks same. Ps5 £399 amazing value

Consoles are good bang for your buck, but comparisons like this are dumb in cases like this. With Sony games they do try to make improvements, but Sony is obviously looking for parity.
It also doesn't take into account all the tweaking you can do in the background that can make games look far better in general. Mods that will come out that will make the game look insane years down the road while the console version will always just be the stock console version.
They're obviously not trying to make the PS5 look underpowered, but the truth is the PS5 is about on the performance level of a 2070 and we're still early into the generation.
They could do so much more if they wanted to.

Plenty of 3rd party games both look and play better on a relatively up to date build. Not even top of the line.

By the time the new consoles arrive they're literally going to be 3 generations of GPU behind, with the fourth on the way.

''Consoles are good bang for your buck, but comparisons like this are dumb in cases like this.''

Not at all, it shows how much optimization can inherently help when it comes to overall results in single-piece of HW to series of different HW configurations.

''It also doesn't take into account all the tweaking you can do in the background that can make games look far better in general.''

I see quite often people throw around these terminologies quite lightly for well over a decade now. ''Huge difference'' ''by a landslide'' ''far better'' ''generational difference'', but little do they understand is that not everyone has the same perception. For you it might be a ''big difference'', to others that watch these comparisons its ''minimal'' or ''barely a difference'' that you need to 400% zoom in to appreciate.

''Mods that will come out that will make the game look insane years down the road while the console version will always just be the stock console version.''

If this was a PC centric game like the ones of Bethesda (which make the majority of the modding scene) or CDPR, which have modding-support/modding tools, your argument might have held water. And yet again the terminology (...) ''look insane down the road'' is questionable, since again different people = different perception. Horizon Zero Dawn has been released 2 years and represents the oldest AAA first party PS4 game in SONYs history that was natively released on PC and what did we get from it? Shader mods, character swaps, some minor QOL tweaks, cheat menus and NSFW mods (no judgement from me). None of which i would even deem impressive or ''groundbreaking'& #39;; especially when compared to the likes of Bethesda games (which i have been actively modding and using since Bethesda released the very first Contruction Set).

''They're obviously not trying to make the PS5 look underpowered, but the truth is the PS5 is about on the performance level of a 2070 and we're still early into the generation.''

If consoles were just a Low-Mid range PCs, yet again, your argument would hold water. But like most, you forget one factual thing. They are not. Starting from different development environment set for each platform, both hardware/software wise as well as their IT management and structure instead of keep repeating the PC component spec given by manufacture without knowing what they actually means and their roles in a middleware development.

To add up, on paper, console hardware is a simple piece PCB in SOC architecture where all CPU/GPU/Memory are glued together, it operates NOTHING like a household PC, smarter architecture aside, the most "powerful" element of console is their constantly updated framework/SDK provided by first party's R&D team while PC development is always restricted by Microsoft tools and GPU manufacture's driver. All the power in the wrong place. And as such, the comparison to a 2070 or 2080 ti are just that (...) comparisons on paper, and does not represent the actuality of things nor case-by-case basis for majority of games.

Also, ''diminishing returns'' was and always will be one of the greatest banes of PC gaming.

''They could do so much more if they wanted to.''
The same applies to the PS5. As we will see post years of 2023/2024.

''Plenty of 3rd party games both look and play better on a relatively up to date build. Not even top of the line.''
Again, different people = different perspective on the terminology.

''By the time the new consoles arrive they're literally going to be 3 generations of GPU behind, with the fourth on the way.''

Re-read the third point.

“but the truth is the PS5 is about on the performance level of a 2070”

Nah. 2080 would be closer. With plenty of examples where ps5 is still stronger.

yeahokwhatever63d ago

I think it's less about "parity" than it is about "releasing the f-ing software to more customers with as little as possible investment". It already looks AMAZING on PS5, better than probably 95% of PC games out there. Why dump another x million on modeling, texturing, etc. when they can just release what they already have, which is already better than most?

@Babadook7
Deluded. This has been covered multiple times. It's a 2060super in terms of performance, at best.

Babadook763d ago (Edited 63d ago )

“Deluded. This has been covered multiple times. It's a 2060super in terms of performance, at best.”

It’s been covered multiple times and just like this game, pc rarely is competitive with a 2070super never mind a 2060super.

Oh, and just a follow up.
Consoles end up being almost twice their ticket cost if you factor in the audacity of wanting to play your games online.

Can build a pretty damn good PC for a grand, even today.

Father__Merrin63d ago

Free to play games are free online. It's any other game you have to join a service but tbh the ps5 only has a 350w PSU where as pc power draw is much higher I'd say pc on for a year costs so much more than console way negating eg Xbox live cost

MrVux00062d ago (Edited 62d ago )

''Consoles end up being almost twice their ticket cost if you factor in the audacity of wanting to play your games online.''

Not sure which metric or statistics are you using to make such conclusion, ESPECIALLY on the ''almost twice their ticket costs'' past.

First i will make one thing clear, for people that have no interest to play online games and have monthly sales / monthly game selections, things like PS Plus is a shit deal (and scummy move by Sony).

But secondly, not everyone shares the same mentality. I've been paying for PS PLus even before it was turned into paywall, since i saw it as a good value (it was pretty much the closest thing to a proper humble bundle on Playstation). 2-4 monthly games all for a measly 20-30$ a year (never paid full price for it, thanks to legit places like CDKeys), that alone has already put me in good place financial wise and game wise.

Thirdly on the PC part, especially late PS3 gen the games on PSN sales alone have been much more consistent and same as the likes on Steam or GOG. Just one google search away to check sites like AreThereAnyDeals/SteamDB/GMG/A llKeyshop vs PSNDeals to see the sales history, and you will indeed see that most of the games released have been pretty close overall, some being better on PSN and some better on PC.

And this is overlooking the fact the second hand market, that trumps both (IMO) by default since you can always resell the same copy of the game later.I can't remember a single (New) third-party game that i bought over 20$ last gen for example.

If you stated that the deals on PC happened SOONER than on consoles, i would agree, but yet again, it does not represent how much you will spend as a rule ... especially if you are smart with your money (patient).

Lastly, lets look at the hard numbers here. At the time of PS5 launch which was 22-23 months ago (near 2 years now), it cost 400$-500$ ... to get an equivalent and comparable performance on PC side of things you could have cashed anywhere (depending on the world) from 1000$ to a whooping 1500$ (in some parts of the world, even more). Even today, as we are moving past the crypto problems, its not so simple to get decent GPUs at MSRP. Granted, today PS5 costs more by 30$ and it still has availability problems, so i'll detract from that last point.

So PS5 by default was already in advantage, by a good amount on that regard (600$-1100$). Factor in that you pay 210$ for 7 (Seven years) of PS plus in which you get 2-3 (possibly 4 down the line monthly games a month), that is 390$-890$ advantage on money saved.

But please, do share with me some hard numbers if you could prove me wrong.

PC brightness is a bit better while PS5 sharpness and detail are a bit better.
