http://kotaku.com/tomb-raider-on-ps4-is-more-definitive-than-on-xbox-o-1508613136

PS4 runs around 60 with drops in the 40s in the more heavier sections - x1 runs around 30 with spikes when nothing is happening. Also PC is the worst version

I hope this isn't like Battlefield 4 where critics just with a placebo statement and then had the rug pulled from under them.

At least I think it was Battlefield 4.

Yeah it's a bit unfair to compare the PC version... it's only the original version.

Anyway, I'll be picking up my copy on XB1 next week. Might be a rip-off but it's one of my favs from last gen so it's worth it to me.

I loved the game on PC but won't be paying for it again.....not after they destroyed her face lol

xbox is 45 fps with lo action and 35 higher action. ps4 dips to 50pretty much its 10-15fps difference.

#7 Posted by BlessedChill (676 posts) -

PS4 is mainly 60 fps dips to 50 with heavy action.

Xbox one is mostly 30 dips above with no action points and below to 20 sometimes with heavy action.

#8 Edited by GrenadeLauncher (4918 posts) -

Bu bu but lems said that it would a locked 30fps on the Xbone while PS4 frequently stuttered!

Even if it was (which iit isn't) at 6X the price, have fun with that.

How many of you are actually going to pay 60$ for the exact same game that's available at 5 - 6 times less the price?

I am, but I'm not paying full price, that's for sure.

I want the game(again), but not paying $60 for it. $30 sounds about right.

Was my second favorite game last year after TLOU and the only game I completed 100 percent.

Xboner Tomb raider should downgrade to 720p for smoothness. Its struggling at 1080p on a last gen game with a bit og graphic enhancement. Fps Dipping it low like a fat lady shaking her butt on the floor.

#18 Edited by StrongBlackVine (8418 posts) -

I would not be surprised if the Xflop version dips below 30fps. Can't wait to see 343i plans to pull a 60fps Halo out of their ass. Will definitely be 720p which is a joke.

#19 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

I can't wait to pick it up on Monday for PS4. I'm liking the graphical improvements in the definitive version so far.

No native 1080p was the right decision for this game. It was always meant to be graphics showcase. ACIV on PS4 runs great at a locked 30fps. The fact that PS4 is hitting 60fps is just an added bonus of having superior hardware.

I wish I was too, but can't just spending $60 on this when I bought the CE for PS3. I'll get it when it hits $40.

Xbone running hot on last gen games lol

#24 Posted by spicymeatball27 (64 posts) -

Hm so the Fraud Edition of Tomb Raider isn't a smooth 60fps on ps4 like everyone thought during huge battles & dips to 40fps during the shawnty town level & any other levels with action which more or less will be half way towards the game where it does get more crazy. Hm guess not even the ps4 could hold the Fraud Edition to 60fps lol unless theres probably like 2-4 bad guys on screen. The xbox one version go's a little above 30fps which is maybe around 35fps tops since thats what they stated.

So overall the Fraud Edition is just a rip off on both versions since it's still the exact game that we all played & got full 1000GS on. Laras has a fucked up face that nees botox but at least both versions are better looking then the PC version which is a surprise but overall still a complete rip off for $60.

#25 Edited by Sagemode87 (998 posts) -

Great time to be a PS4 owner :)

#26 Posted by GoldenElementXL (3209 posts) -

Any one who saw the character model changes knows that this version of the game is crap. Cross eyed Lara isn't worth $60 to me. I will stick the the PC version @ 1440p and 60 fps locked thanks.

So this is how Kotaku does a PC vs console comparison: with a low quality, badly compressed gif.

Gaming journalism at its best !!!!

Bwahahahahaha

#28 Posted by 2mrw (4986 posts) -

Still not worth the full price ... didn't get it for the current gen. and won't get it for the next till its half price or less

#29 Edited by FreedomFreeLife (2454 posts) -

PC worst port and worst frame rate? BULLSHIT. TC REPORTED FOR LYING!!!

#30 Posted by bobbetybob (19276 posts) -

What a joke. Yes it has a few extra effects that the PC version doesn't, but no sane person is going to pay $60 for some fucking wavy trees.

Below 30 the lag is very noticeable .. at below 20 i consider it crap and below 10 is unplayable. Period.. We are in 2014 ffs !! Games lag on next-gen products that much in unacceptable.

#35 Posted by HaloinventedFPS (4727 posts) -

I remember when Kotaku said Crysis on Consoles ran silky smooth, despite it running at 15-20fps

#36 Posted by HaloinventedFPS (4727 posts) -

Lol paid review, taking screenshots on low settings with no tresfx to make the definite edition look much better, i hate gaming "journalism" so corrupt

How many people have said they want the last of us to come out on ps4, how many have said they want gta 5 to be re-released, how many topics on here start by saying which games would you like to see re-made for the next gen, and finally how many people go out and buy the game of the year eidition on the same console with the exact same graphics for the exact same high price

#40 Edited by Puckhog04 (22606 posts) -

I don't understand the fascination with FPS. I would rather have an amazing looking game locked at 30FPS than an average looking game at 60FPS with frame dips.

I love how you scorch the PS4 version for going under but you say sh** about the xbox one which who knows if it goes even under 30,most of your ammo fire at the PS4 one.

He say 40 to 45 but he is not measuring,either way most of the time is 60 not 40 or 45..

I hope you have something very powerful because on a 7970 you will not get that max out...

And you will certainly will not get that with a even lower GPU like 660Ti or 7870 or 7950...

It was quite clear in the video that wind barely move trees on the PC version vs the console version,but that is not the PC version fault it was CD on one.

@Scipio8 said:

The video comparison was done vs the xbox one version, not the PS4,so hardly they are sony shills.

And you can clearly see the console version has more things moving going on,and even the image quality was there with PC,rip your eyes out if you didn't see the difference.

We all know this version done properly on PC will kick consoles ass,but that video there do show irrefutable facts the console version has more things going on and feels more alive,this is not because the consoles are more powerful is because CD probably put more effort into the console version,maybe the dead line for PC didn't allow for it,and i am sure is nothing they can't fix with a quick patch.

Yeah they also turn off the motion of the trees and air simulation right.?

My god...

Tress Effect does make the hair look better but if not like the PC version will look horrible without it that is a joke.

Lems are apoplectic. This reminds me of when Sony announced 4.2 million sales and PS Now: lems were crying about it for a week afterwards.

Moron one of the game developers confirmed the game was 60 FPS on PS4 no such confirmation exist for the xbox one...hahahaha

If BF4 can be call 60 FPS when on xbox one version is 10 FPS slower across the board than the PS4 version,this game surely is 60FPS.

Those tears of you are delicious...hahahaha...

The videos didn't work for me. So all that I saw was gifs, which is a stupid way to do a graphics comparison. Especially coming from a game journalism site.

Anyway, they said they could launch the definitive version on PC as well, if there was enough interest for it. But I doubt there is, as the difference is so minimal and PC gamers have been enjoying this game maxed out for almost a year. I doubt trees moving and a better skybox is worth having a new version.

Having said that, however. I think this version is great for people that haven't played it yet and want something to play on their PS4 or Xbone.

#48 Edited by Telekill (4604 posts) -

@hrt_rulz01: Agreed. It is unfair to have the original PC version compared with the rebuilt next gen versions.

I'll also be buying TR but on PS4 and only after a price drop. I still have the original copy and considered it just shy of GOTY. Had The Last of Us not released last year, TR would have taken it easily for me.

The added benefit of the PS4 version such as remote play with the PSV justify the rebuy for me.

#49 Edited by AM-Gamer (3937 posts) -

I picked up the ps4 version last night and it looks amazing. The subtle facial expressions during gameplay look insane on Laura's model. Never really played the other versions but it looks amazing on PS4.
