OK can you guys help me here? i've spend 500 euro exactly on PS4, Killzone shadow fall and Assassins Creed Black Flag.
I have a couple of problems so far.
1) I though next gen meant next gen.. where id turn on a game like assassins creed black flag. Knowing that the PS3 only has 256mb of ram, id see a MASSIVe increase in texture detail because of the amazing amount and speed of the new systems ram.. but no.. literally, it looks almost the same... like not even worth the upgrade. There's still jaggies everywhere, there's still low res textures all over the place. The people's faces look like thy're all sick with some hideous disease, and the amount of mesh's underneath the textures that havn't been smoothed out is heartbreaking.
conclusion to part 1. I've payed 460 euro for assassins creed to look approximately 15% better than on my ps3. That massive boost in memory, memory speed and CPU performance offers me NOTHING gameplay wise over my PS3 version. Is this a joke?
2) It's clear that black flag and the like of those games have been designed and build for the 360 and PS3 and then simply upscaled in certain areas to look a bit better for the new consoles. Literally thats what they've done. So i thought "well killzone is exclusively made for the Ps4, so this should be amazing.
i was flabbergasted when i turned on KZ shadowfall... Literally i was looking around thinking wtf have i paid for? again, im using a "10x" more powerful system, a next generation console with futureproofing for at least 5 years, and it hardly looks that much better than KZ3.. run up to any wall or look at the floor anywhere and you can see that the textures are only slightly more detailed than that on the older consoles. They're still blurry etc. I'd say they increased texture resolution by about 15%. With 10x more power i honestly thought we'd be seeing photo realistic textures. Im devastated.
Look at the first image here that you can slide the slider on for Assassins creed. Comparison between the xbox360 and Xbox one version. WTF is next gen about that?? there's nothing different, it only barely looks any better.. seriously.
3) Why have i paid 500 euro's for a 10x more powerful console, when they've just continued making the same games. They havn't thought "Right, let's boost the content in these games massivley so they'll be blown away by the pure scale of how powerful these machines are, let's add all these amazing features and effects to melt their minds".. no.. they just continue to make the same games. EXACTLY the same. Same size, same stories, same gameplay, slightly better graphics. There's nothing next gen... i've paied 500 for 15% better graphics and nothing more.
What are my advantages in having a PS4 over a PS3? 15% better graphics, is that really what they've done to us?
