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

Isn't Planetside 2 like 3 years old?

PC's are more powerful, PS2 wont run at Ultra settings on consoles, unless the devs move the goalposts so to speak.

There's different spec PC's you know

They aren't all one spec.

Some can run Planetside 2 on ultra, some can't.

I don't see what this proves, or what the point is, other than PC's being flexible enough to use whatever hardware you happen to own.

Planetside 2's graphics suck...Although I still doubt your claim unless you can provide some kind of link.

maybe because planetside 2 is more CPU based and the PS4 has the 8 cores

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

Planetside wont run on ultra settings on consoles. Planetside is cpu reliant and PS4 has what is essentially a low end low power laptop cpu

wait for it to release

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

Planetside 2 is not a new game and even when it was it still wasn't a demanding game.

The game's like a year old. I would hope it could run the game fine. My PC was powerful enough to run it on Ultra 3 years ago.

PS4: 720p 30fps

My PC: Ultra 1600p 60+fps

Great game though, unparalleled in certain areas.

No, it released last year and lol at TC for not grasping how things work.

throwing cores at a game doesnt solve anything on its own

Its a laptop CPU. An AMD from 2009 can run rings around it.

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

PCs are a lot more powerful, don't be stupid.
