Some of these comparisons are atrocious, not all but most of them. This is a shock when viewing on "The Worlds Most Powerful Gaming Console".

The sacrifices to get that magic "1080p" number driven into the minds of "core gamers". Enjoy!!!

that game looks rough. All the animations are the same that the show has had for years. the framerate also goes to shit any time they do close ups

The game is great. I picked it up yesterday and it looks and plays wonderfully on PS4. Stop damage controlling because Xbone doesn't have a baseball game or 1080p games.

Did you watch the video? I think you should then try and delete this thread.

Yup watched it. That is why i say most of the comparisons fail. If you watch all the video it has a ton of fail in it. Did you watch all of it?

Thank you for your prediction. Cows cant even DC this one so it might get overlooked very quickly.

Go play baseball on your xbox, and stop worrying about how impressive the ps4 tech is.

Yeah TC, how are you enjoying those amazing baseball games on 360? LOL

agreed. the graphics are a little better but animations and faces arent what i was expecting. they dont even have toe taps done correctly for a lot of players

that said, i love the game and some of the new changes to rtts are a welcome change

Go back to OT, you are better suited there.

Back on topic. The gameplay looks good. Are you satisfied with the end result of the graphics being sacrificed to achieve 1080p? Stop deflecting the core issue.

#15 Edited by musicalmac (22813 posts) -

We were just discussing yesterday how unimpressive the PS4 version is. It's likely going to be much better next year. At least you'd certainly hope it will look better.

Go play Kinect sports baseball LOL

you should watch the comparison video, it'll be easier for you to take this backfire in good system wars spirit.

Did it twice. Those graphics really scream next gen. But then again we are going from a $600 PS3 to a $400 PS4.

So which one is it? Do you want me to go, or answer your asinine questions?

You're the most delusional user in sw.

I'll give you time for you to actually watch the video then think about your topic lol.

I'll sit back and enjoy this backfire. I'll get the Iodine and rubbing alcohol.

I also have a pic you might have overlooked for people who are in denial after they see a few scenes in the vid that doesnt make you vomit. Thread still going strong.

I swear people on this board are intentionally starting threads they KNOW will backfire.

#23 Posted by misterpmedia (3363 posts) -

@FoxbatAlpha post the pic then. So far your thread doesn't make much sense. Even adding a video for self ownage is pretty remarkable lol. I'm sort of impressed.

#24 Posted by chikenfriedrice (9675 posts) -

The game is great. I picked it up yesterday and it looks and plays wonderfully on PS4. Stop damage controlling because Xbone doesn't have a baseball game or 1080p games.

Forza 5 is 1080P

The pic is posted before the video. Maybe since you are on your flip phone, it doesnt show up.

15 tracks, no day-night or weather cycles and the worst looking fans ever seen in a game. Not impressive at all. It can only run a ugly ass game like Titanfall at 792p which is pathetic.

Did you actually watch the video? that image in ps4 is from an empty space but nice try.

#29 Posted by IMAHAPYHIPPO (2555 posts) -

Ahhh yes... It must be hard for an Xbox fan to understand. But MLB the Show is a baseball game. That's what the hell is going... It's a sport.

please tell us all about that picture and how it proves your point. Especially when there's a video right under it that shows the opposite lol. Must be just some subjective vision you have. But you are a lem at heart.

edit: Do you think there's supposed to be a crowd behind the batter in the PS4 version or something? If so LOL

So what you are saying is that the $400 is well spent. Got ya. Do you even own a PS4. I think not.

#32 Edited by chikenfriedrice (9675 posts) -

Okay I watched the entire video and the PS4 looks better....is it the next gen leap that I was hoping for? No.

And if the framerate is bad like people are saying, I will pass until '15

Sure whatever you say but is it 1080P? Yes and it's not the only one so stop damage controlling.

The only thing wrong with MLB is that its not on Xbone.

#36 Posted by lamprey263 (22650 posts) -

I don't get it, in many instances in the video the PS4 version looks better. What was the point? Are you trying to say the PS4 version is graphically worse? Or just that it's not a substantial enough upgrade from the PS3 version? Lost of those shot by shot comparisons might look better just because of their framing, for instance in one shot there's just not very interesting background of the close up shot, and in the other there's a crowd, they're obviously two different fields, and I imagine that'll change things like lighting and the helmets reflective surface.

About the only shocking moment in the video comparison was at 1:11 when you see the training net for the PS3 and PS4 version, in this instance the PS4 version raised an eyebrow, mainly that the training net's netting seems too wide to contain the ball, looked more like a cargo net... is that not normal? I'm not sure.

Everyone's got a 'chute to bail out but TC. He has to go down with his ship.

About what? its well made, has good architecture and it's more powerful than the other 2 consoles.

FACT: It's early in the Generation, developers need to time to optimise there game engines For Any of the consoles.

Educated Guess: I'ts a Port of the Ps3 version.

still waiting for your run down explanation to back up your claim lol. You might as well do it now before the whole topic is ablaze. I'll grab some more gasoline to make it a quick one for you.

Should've bought a ps4 if he wanted to play baseball. Making dumb threads, and being delusional isn't going to fix anything.

#42 Posted by getyeryayasout (7032 posts) -

The GS review says it's the same game as the PS3 version, but spends the first three paragraphs talking about how much better looking the PS4 version is than the PS3 version. I'll be picking up my copy soon. Go M's!

#43 Posted by darkangel115 (1470 posts) -

the PS3 version looks better. Seems like a bad port

I already explained the thread. IN "SOME" scenes the PS4 version is better. There is a sad denial but it is the truth that this is even going on. I might go buy the superior PS3 version.

screen cap the 'some' scenes and let's discuss this further. Judging by your club card to the lem church I think everyone here is willing to call BS on these claims :p.

Please elaborate.

#47 Edited by edwardecl (1950 posts) -

So the video shows the PS4 version is a port of the PS3 version but with slightly better graphics and a higher resolution... shocking.

#48 Posted by Aljosa23 (24541 posts) -

PS4 version is fine but the online is garbage.

#49 Edited by GoldenElementXL (2706 posts) -

Does anyone here actually own the game? I Do.

WTF is up with that install/data download time the first time you pop the disk in? It took over an hour for me to actually play the game. As for the graphics some players look better than others. Overall its a good step up but not as jaw dropping as NBA 2K14. The crowd looks great except why aren't they watching the action? On replays they are cheering and jumping up and down but aren't even facing where the play is. That's a little nit picky I admit, but when games are trying to look real, things like this can be jarring. I haven't noticed too many frame drops. The animations all look pretty good

I haven't played enough yet to give it a score or anything. Maybe this weekend.....
