IGN Compares Current Gen and Next Gen.

This topic is locked from further discussion.

#1 Edited by PonchoTaco (2175 posts) -

First off, this is in no way a thread about Battlefield 4. I don't think this is necessary to post in the Battlefield 4 sticky. The video happens to be featuring Battlefield 4, but its purpose is to compare systems.

IGN has made a video that compares different versions of Battlfield 4.

1) Current Gen vs. Current Gen

2) Current Gen vs. Next Gen

3) Next Gen vs. Next Gen

What looks the best to you?

Video comparisons with shitty quality are pointless, and it doesn't show the framerate difference.

But we already know PC > PS4 > Xbone > current gen

I'm aware of this, but SW goes bonkers for these kind of things. Might as well make their day.

Can't wait for the first real crop of next gen looking games to come out... when Devs start flexing their muscles on the new hardware....

Xbox 360 vs. XB1

720p vs. 720p

LMAO

Next gen has more detail but won't be a big enough difference to sell the casuals. It's like comparing DVD to Blu-ray. The difference is there, but the average Joe won't notice. Hardcore gamers will obviously want the latest and greatest, but I see the casuals sticking to their PS3 and 360's for now.

Interesting. Both PS4 and Xbox One versions look clearly better than the last gen versions, and this is just the start. There were pleny of examples, but the scene starting 4:14 really stands out.

well.. BF4 isn't exactly a good game to have a start next gen.. being honest it looks quite good for the current gen.. and it doesn't do it justice for the next gen. But if anything you can clearly see a cleaner picture even if it is a youtube video.

I hardly saw a difference.

If you aren't playing this game on PC you're doing it wrong.

this is absolutely pointless because of compression but you wanna know what i noticed the most about this video? Xbone's jaggies are more visible than ps3 AND 360's version. i mean how f*cking sad is that? What are these 8gb of ddr3 doing inside xbone? No AA and 720p so W----T----F?

#13 Posted by blamix (204 posts) -

Lol.. The xbox360 and XBone, 720p vs 720p

#14 Posted by Gaming-Planet (14022 posts) -

Why is the contrast on the Xbone One different?

It's like some instragram effect.

Anyone notice how the next gen games have curtains with physics? The small things are cool like that.

#16 Posted by Netret0120 (2210 posts) -

I could care less at this point. Lol at launch games.

if i read somewhere the X1 runs at 720p so i doubt there is much diff btwn the 360 and X1

So basically in PC terms.

360 & PS3 = High.

XO & PS4 = Very High.

More like

360 & PS3 = low

XO = medium-high

PS4 = medium-high with AA

LMFAOOOOOOOOO

No sane person buys a next-gen console that can only do 720p properly.

I wouldn't call a game running in 720p without any anti-aliasing or ambient occlusion and rgb-problems medium at all.

Effects do make a significant difference to the atmosphere (like the birds) and how powerful the weapons feel (particles etc). Resolution is pretty much irrelevant.

Have you even bothered to watch the video?

The difference between Xbox 360 and PS3 is pretty much the same as the difference between Xbox one and PS4. The increase in resolution doesn't really make that much of a difference.

The difference between 360/PS3 and Xbox One/PS4 is night and day.

If all the differences in games are this close I'll take Xbox one with the lower resolution and all the extras it brings any days.

What extras? Kinect and some other gimmicks? LOL

You keep your inferior, casual cablebox then. I'll get a superior system, the PS4

By terms of actual features related in game, they are the same and AO has already been confirmed to be in final game. RGB issues has nothing to do with the actual game... both PS4 and XO are running a higher setting FXAA with the PS4 being at a higher resolution.

Jeesh...come on...

Someone at IGN needs to hire a person who knows how to properly capture and compress a video before uploading it to YouTube.

Even I can do a better job than they can.

Why does the PS2 to Original Xbox gap look bigger than the 360/ps3 gap to X1/PS4 gap?
