So inconsistent

This. Never seen one game look amazing/like shit on different systems.

Infamous SS looks at least a generation ahead of this 4k or not. It might take titan sli to get the quality of lighting in Infamous to Watch Dogs.

@remiks00: true dat, it is amazing looking and my pics prove it.

@remiks00: I have nothing against the pc. I just don't like some of the hermits and disagree with some of their views. They make up 'facts' among themselves and preach it as bible. They correct developers comments without any real knowledge. This all irritates me. I just like playstation. Always have. It's harmless. I'm just quite argumentative is all. chill your beans mate.

Aren't they from the photo mode which are almost bullshots?

#158 Posted by I_can_haz (6443 posts) -

@ChubbyGuy40: nah photomode doesn't add any extra effect or AA and they are not bullshots. The game actually looks like that. My screenshots are also from the photomode, all I did was change camera angles and DOF to focus on the textures

#159 Posted by scottpsfan14 (2211 posts) -

@ChubbyGuy40: Depends what you mean by bullshots. All I know is the graphics remain the same in photo mode. just different camera angles and dof. But I guess you could call it a bullshot creator.

I have no idea if after-effects are added. I don't think I even used that mode.

No idea, bro. Hence why I asked.

Due to being uploaded through GS, the source becomes unknown.

The water in this game is incredible.

The water in this game is incredible.

Water is the true benchmark for current gen plats. So guud.

#165 Edited by I_can_haz (6443 posts) -

I think one of the main reasons WD looks weak next to ISS besides the fact it's a cross gen game is the weak lighting engine in WD. The game would look so much better if Ubi used a daytime lighting system as advanced as ISS....

True, WD definitely has the best water out there IMO.

there is no pc game that uses physically based shading, they are all just upressed ps360 games. only killzone, ryse and infamous use it. its why they look better than everything else. pc software is still gen7

#169 Posted by lunar1122 (654 posts) -

i think what a lot of stupid consolites don't realize is that, You guys are playing Watchdogs at high settings 900p 30 frames per second. Im playing it at 1080p Ultra settings with a fluctuation of 44-70 frames per second( depends how busy the city is when driving)

If you do the math in this example im about to make, simply going from 900p 30 frames to 900p 60 frames is going to require a 100% increase in power . Thats 2 playstation 4 equivalents . You up the resolution and the graphic settings and still getting 60 fps.. thats means you are way over 2x playstation 4's in performance..

The fact of the matter is, Watchdogs is still a good looking game .. To me it seems its CPU bound and not GPU bound.. Lots of people can play this on ultra with mid range cards as long as their cpu is up to snuff. If its not up to snuff then it dont matter how strong your gpu is. I'd really like to see the difference mantel or dx 12 would have made.. Probably would have been huge.

It's likely due to attempting to push the hardware. There are plenty of software analyses running around. PC is usually slow out of the gate, but pulls ahead tremendously. For example, Cryengine now offers physically based shading.

Still, do you have links for inFamous and Killzone?

It's an extremely good looking game. I agree about it being CPU bound but it still runs really well.

@lundy86_4 There's a PDF about K:SF using it from their website. You'll easily find it with Google.

link me to the store i can go buy them at..oh wait

@lundy86_4 you can also find info about it on digital foundry.

@lunar1122 and yet it still looks nearly identical to the ps4 version, just at a higher res/fps. infamous still walks all over it. its the typical high res gen 7 software you get on the pc. wonder how long till the pc gets a game that isnt a ps360 port.

I asked for direct links, not general directions. Bro, common courtesy... Don't make me ask for directions to Toronto, whilst you point me in the direction of Ontraio. Shit, son.

Most games are going to look largely identical , The difference for pc has always been cleaning up the jaggies/higher framerates and bigger resolutions with some better draw distances/lighting techniques, The game is going to look largly the same in screenshot compares but believe me the fluidity of the game when you actually playing it makes a big difference. I dunno what people are expecting here.. Totally different assets?.. I just capped watchdogs to see how it plays at 30 frames per second.. I wanna vomitttttttttttttt . congrats on welfare settings?

You talk about ports, When infact PC was the lead platform for watchdogs.. all other versions are technically "the ports".

Lets put it this way, If i put watchdogs at 900p on my monitor at high settings.. Im getting wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more performance than a ps4, Far less for the Bone at 792p. 30 frames is a joke

pc was clearly not the lead platform for watch dogs. that much is apparent. the lead platforms were ps360. im aware that pc games will always just be console ports of cross platform games with better IQ and framerate. thats kinda what ive been saying on this forum all along.

I'm going to have play the game to see more for myself. However, I have feeling things like the foliage or lighting won't be anywhere as good like Arma which is literally the best I seen in most large open games.

Uh so, I could care less about exclusives because Guess what? Thats not what the other poster I quoted was talking about and neither was I, and Guess what? Consoles will only raise the bar for console graphics because........ Guess what? Well because these are next gen consoles.

Oh Guess What?

Actually consoles effect PC in a lot of ways considering most games are made with consoles in mind. So guess what? PS4 HAS raised the bar for PC's because now ports won't focus on last gen consoles. So the lowest common denominator is now much higher. Get it?

The ONLY reason consoles are devs main focus is because...........Guess what? Money. The console market is much bigger than the PC market so its a no brainer why devs main focus are consoles, and for that reason we have dumb down games thanks to these weak consoles that you say so call raise the bar.

LOL. Far Cry 3 had that before next-gen and only on PC. And not only that, but Far Cry 3 was probably the first open-world game to feature global illumination, too. Even Infamous doesn't have that, does that make Far Cry 3 a generation ahead of Infamous?

Actually Far Cry 3 did have it. The next game after that to feature it was Remember Me, if my google skills are correct.

#190 Posted by MiiiiV (227 posts) -

A lot of people here bring up Infamous SS, while it looks great it's brought down a bit by it's poor lod distance. As for lightning, it sure looks like ISS has a more spectacular lightning display than WD but from what we've seen so far both ISS and WD only has one light source at a time that is casting shadows.
To really compare two games we have to look at all the aspects like textures, anti aliasing, lightning/shadows, draw distance, lod distance, geometry, world density, scale, physics, how many things are going on at the same time and how advanced are they, resolution and frame rate etc. It can be difficult to accurately compare two games that have different focus points. So its best to wait until we can play both games before we can speculate that one is more advanced than the other.

#191 Posted by gpuking (2653 posts) -

@lundy86_4

Of course they're from my PS4, photomode is 100% realtime tho. No added AA, higher res lighting or anything, just different camera angle that's all.
