Inb4yourafanboy Roy.

What I want to see is the consoles in action. A side by side comparison between how games look and run on these machines. The controllers in action too, I'm hearing sexy things about Sony's DS4.

I'd like to see some direct comparisons of games running, especially a couple of generations of games in.

Either way, it looks to be a better generation than the last, at least for the Playstation because both consoles are more PC-like in architecture, and therefore should be easier to code. And also to make ports to (from PC), or ports from (To PC). TBH, I hope PC is the lead platform this generation. Makes more sense TBH.

There's some footage floating around of BF4 side by side, was pretty interesting. Also there were the specs for what CoDG & BF4 run on each system;
  • CoD Ghosts
    • Xbone: 720p, 60fps
    • PS4: 1080p, 60fps
  • BF4
    • Xbone: 720p, 60fps
    • PS4: 900p, 60fps
Frames may vary, stats I was looking at showed it dip down into like, the 40s at points, but it was pretty consistent on both systems overall.

(Apparently Crytek is targetting 30fps and 720p for Ryse on Xbone as well.)

yeah pretty much.

Superior tech means absolutely nothing for any game companies that want to run on both platforms though, since they'll be made at Xbone's level to work on both.

Wtf is 900p lol

Okay Nov 5, 13
900p is like 1600 x 900 resolution

Lorx Nov 5, 13
Correct, 1600x900.

I wonder if they'll be made at Xbone's level, or made at PS4's and then dumbed down. Last gen we had the nightmare mess of "Cell processor vs The Usual Fare", but this time we have both systems running fairly relatable and understandable specifications. It could be a lot more plausible for companies to build bigger on PS4, and then either cap framerate or resolution on Xbone to make up for it. Which is what we're probably seeing here anyway.

Do tvs/monitors even have that resolution anymore? I thought this was for like laptops?

Well one would think that is the route they will take as it seems the most logical but Micro$oft does enjoy throwing money at people so who knows how that will play out.

Well any TV can show an image smaller than its size, so yeah.

My second monitor is 900p, if that counts. It's...like, four years old or something? TV's I have no idea.

I assume that resolution was chosen because it's the highest the game can handle on that system, while still being based off the same engine and such that's being used for PC, trying to find the middle-ground. It'll be upscaled to 1080p, just like the 720p figures for the Xbone, but as picky as it may sound on surface level, true 1080p is, well, true 1080p, no upscaling is going to match it.

Rabla but that's pretty stupid. I get what you mean but who downscales?

Lorx aye native 1080p is something. Though with the resolutions the pc gamers get to use nowadays that's like 240p to them. I envy them because my gaming rig isn't complete yet.

4k/Eyefinity/etc are all amazing, but honestly 1080p is still standard for PC. Besides for people who spend more time building their rigs (and working to afford the parts), I expect there's very, very few people who run setups intensive to truly dwarf 1080p.

Still perhaps the most impressive rigs I've seen:
That old BF3 simulator. Screens completely around you, treadmill at your feet, you can actually look around and move to direct your character. Fake gun in hands to shoot and aim with, BB guns or whatever they were planted around the screens for incoming fire.
The guy who set up like 20-ish EVE Online accounts to run from one desk. Monitor for each instance. Way, way too many monitors!
