i hear the ps4 will be able to play planetside 2 at ultra settings
so its essentially PC version maxed...why is this? i thought pc's were more powerful
This topic is locked from further discussion.
Planetside 2 has huge environments, so it can't be graphically that detailed. Still, it's below-average (graphically) on PC too.
As a game, though, cows should celebrate. It's very good for a free game, but it kinda does have that pay-to-win flavor to it. You can still have a lot of fun without ever spending a dime. I did.
What res and framerate is it running at on the PS4?
Huge optimisation improvements are a big help too. It ran like total shit when it came out and it's been getting better (still pretty crappy) but it's getting a massive optimisation upgrade soon to coincide with the next gen systems
maybe because planetside 2 is more CPU based and the PS4 has the 8 cores
CPU on Ps4 is really weak. A low power laptop cpu with lower ipc ( instructions per second ) compared to even AMD's old phenom II line of cpu's. Couple that with a low frequency and you get a weak cpu 8 cores on not . Of course Planeside was running like s*** thanks to no optimization but a huge optimization patch is coming and the ps4 version i'm guessing wont have those optimization issues at launch
Thread starter is in for a face palm..
1) Planeside 2 got delayed on ps4 because they were having optimization issues so its now pushed back to 2014 ( it was initially going to be here on launch of the ps4)
2) planetside 2 devs have admitted the game runs like crap on pc, Its not because of pc hardware but because of poor development code. So the dev team has been at work revamping core parts of the engine for better performance.
The devs released a patch a couple days ago with this fix that grants +30% more performance to pc http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/planetside-2-performance-update-01-adds-30-percent-increase-in-fps-video-13-11-2013/
3) The engine has been largely re-written, and now can be played on mediocre pcs quite comfortably. The ps4 is a mediocre pc, so i see no reason why planet side 2 cant play on high settings for ps4
