PS4 now stands at the same level as PC, as master race

Since PS4 is the only console game that can achieve 1080P constantly, it's pretty much the same level as PC, as the master race, looking down on gaming peasants like Xbone and Wii U

In your head? I agree.

PC shat on 1080p years ago.

#3 Posted by Sword-Demon (7001 posts) -

meanwhile, PCs will be transitioning to 4k

#4 Posted by BPoole96 (22814 posts) -

My PC achieves 1440p constantly. PS4 is still for peasants, just not as poor as the XBone peasants.

PCs are now doing (have been doing) 1080+p (like 1440) for years man.

That on multiple screens and in 3D as well. Although I am happy where the PS4 is, that price being comparable to running most multiplats on the PC equivalent of High settings makes the decision between either even harder for me.

Congratulations. After nearly a decade of PCs being able to do it, a console is able to do 1080p.

Maybe in another fifteen years you can do 1080p and 60 frames per second! That'd be somethin'.

Cows are the new master race. We get to play BeastZone: Shadow Fall :0

900p = 1080p?

c'mon PC-ers, you should be welcoming the new master race member to the club

The master race, by default, wouldn't accept lesser beings. Cows are a lesser being.

Its doing it right now, and No the pc hasn't been hitting 1080p for nearly a decade unless you wanna count PS2 graphics.

Cows are last on my invite list to the Master Race Ball

They're below Apple fans, and those people that think 'yellow mustard' is for lesser beings.

I will literally let those people into the party first, and I will put a bottle of French's on the banquet table just to spite them.

That's how low Cows are.

#21 Posted by Evo_nine (2099 posts) -

except for the fact that ps4 cant do 1080p 60fps.

Forza 5 would like a word with you.

Did the PC hit 1080p? Yes or no?

#23 Posted by SonofK (1088 posts) -

The next Halo is stated to run at 60 fps and 1080p so it's possible consoles can do this in a few years. But even then consoles will never come close to PC so this entire thread is retarded

Perfect for the thread.

1080p On a Plasma currently the pinnacle of gaming.

Wipes the floor with 1440/1600p LCD monitors

#27 Posted by silversix_ (16194 posts) -

PS4 is 2-3 years behind PC. Xbone is 5 years behind pc. WiiU is 10 years behind PC. The story of life all delivered by me.

#28 Posted by FPSfan1985 (2174 posts) -

Fuck 1080p it's all about 120hz.

#29 Edited by Murderstyle75 (4412 posts) -

Don't know how many times I have to say it but 1080p has little to no benefit on a console.

PC gamers are hunched over a desk enjoying every last detail. In a console environment as well as a PC hooked up to the living room HDTV, you cannot see this detail at a logical viewing distance.

It's a benefit to some people

So I guess you agree that the PC is at the highest level, and it is something consoles aspire to be.

Peasant.

Wow, this is a new level of reaching

#33 Posted by GioVela2010 (4300 posts) -

@Murderstyle75:

Umm you're flat out wrong. U can see the same details sitting 8 ft away from a 60" 1080p will resolve the same detail as sitting 3 ft away from a 23" 1080p monitor.

Only thing is the monitor will have shit motion resolution, shit contrast, and a shit sound stage for audio

When you have to use words like "pretty much" then its definitely not master race. Besides, 1080 is so last gen for PC, i already run my games at 2k and once I add in some newer video cards in a year or two I will run them at 4k res, which we know ps4 and x1 both can't do anywhere close to the same level (if at all) as PC.

Hell, my BF4 is maxed out at 2560x1440 and it puts the ps4 version to shame... to SHAME!

@lostrib:

The only people it benifits are people with very large sets which is not most people.

Even on a 50 inch set, 1080p vs. 720p doesn't become apparent until closer than 9.8 feet and becomes full apparent at 6.5 feet. 6.5 feet is closer than most people will sit to their 50 HDTV (even through the THX recommended viewing distance for a 50″ screen is 5.6 ft). So, most consumers will not be able to see the full benefit of their 1080p TV.

On other words. Most console gamers who bought into 1080p and demand 1080p games pretty much wasted their money.

Isn't 1080p a thing from the past on PC?

Or people who sit close to their screen

Ironic considering Wii U has more games running at 1080p 60fps than the PS4 and Xbone.. but ofc the fanbois will damage control

Why would you not count PS2 graphics.. What were you playing 10 years ago? PS2 derp

@lostrib:

Most do not however meaning it only benefits a minority of people. My 12 year old sure does though. Is that how people really view their 40 and 50 inch sets? Like a middle schooler? There's really no point going that big if you are only going to sit a few feet away. In a logical viewing environment, 1080p is nothing more than a marketing gimmick when it comes to HDTV owners. Its going to get even more ridiculous when TV manufacturers try and push 4k on 30 to 60 inch sets.

#43 Posted by mastershake575 (8364 posts) -

I was running games at 1600x1200 (8% less than 1080p) with 60FPS back in the early 2000s. Are consoles really bragging about getting a tad higher resolution on SOME games with half the FPS 11-13 years later ? (lol)

#45 Posted by Gaming-Planet (14441 posts) -

Almost, but not quite.

It is the better value when it comes to hardware. For $400, that's a good value although PC has cheaper games, better video cards, and can play from 1080p-4k natively.

plus it can optimize its games better.....

R9 290X is comparable to Titan and it has AMD Mantle i.e. "console like APIs" for PCs equipped with GCN.
