or will PC always dominate

ac4, battlefield 4 all look better on super end pcs

#2 Edited by CrownKingArthur (4060 posts) -

i think that nba 2k14 game was an exception due to the way the versions were developed.

obviously, pc has the most potential - more graphics, bigger worlds, richer audio, different controllers etc so domination is an appropriate word.

Of course PC will always look better, it's more expensive hardware that introduces hundreds of new parts over the lifespan of a single console.

Consoles never will

lol ya sure if we are talking about your average mom laptop from 2005

Thats completely dependent on the developer.

#7 Posted by Syn_Valence (1347 posts) -

If the game is optimized like shit, then yes

#8 Posted by lostrib (33006 posts) -

I'm sure there will be the occasional shitty port, but in general no

#9 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16744 posts) -

Don't know and don't care. I will own both.

Every multiplat game would be better on ps4 as compared to pcs if you run it on a shitty or mediocre pc. There is no standard pc configuration with which you can compare the performance. On high end pcs, obviously they would run much better on pcs.

Diablo III.

No always-on DRM

No RMT Auction house

Sticks for roll maneuver.

Any more questions?

How exactly do you expect this to happen? Of course not.

#13 Posted by blamix99 (1607 posts) -

we never know.. but it will always be PC>PS4>X1>WiiU

PC wins graphics

PS4 will win exclusive games like the PS3

X1 will... well i don't know

WiiU will be fun with Mario,DK,Zelda

#14 Posted by Gaming-Planet (13870 posts) -

AC4 is pretty shitty on PC. So poorly optimized that I'd rather get it on the PS4 than my PC.

Imagine he sexy the optimization will be in Watch Dogs oh god probably gotta need a 780 to even reach 30fps...

The PS4 version may look better than a mid-range PC, but definitely not a high-end PC.

#17 Posted by KarateeeChop (4590 posts) -

doubt it. it still needs to beat the Xbox One first.

And yet only less than 1% of hermits can actually play games with similar graphics to the PlayStation 4, this is a proven fact thanks to the Steam survey.

cool i've never been in a 1% minority before. anyone else?

#20 Edited by Basinboy (10976 posts) -

well, yeah, if a developer does a sh*tty port (and modders don't clean it up)

but generally no, it won't (assuming you have a rig that can outpace the performance of a PS4)

They do AND they don't.

PC gaming is what one makes of it. Consoles can have better hardware than a person's PC and they do have better hardware than most PCs. Some have gaming PCs with top of the line hardware. It's an unfair comparison since a console has set hardware from a certain point in time. They can't and won't change its capabilities mid-cycle as that would screw early adopters. Nobody owns PC gaming and the hardware is varied and always changing.

Basically, the only people who make the comparisons have some petty compensation issues and need to assure themselves of the obvious.

Of course it will but when it comes to Ubi you know they will do a pure shit job... wait, what job? they won't do shit, they won't optimize it at all and just release the game so pc owners don't bitch. That's how Ubi goes.

Did you know that back in 07 ZERO PERCENT of pc owners had a DX11 card? that's right! zero percent OMFG!!! Dumbasses these days...

#28 Posted by kalipekona (2296 posts) -

Considering the PC platform is already ahead right at the beginning it's obvious that it is only going to pull further and further ahead.

And, console fanboys, please stop using the lame excuse that "not all PCs can play at the best settings". All I care about is the fact that I can play games at those settings. Most of the people in System Wars and on other game sites that you would call a PC gamer are people that are enthusiasts and game primarily on the PC. 95% of those people have PCs that beat the consoles in performance.

I've been a Steam user since 2004 and I've never been in any Steam survey. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Steam requires the user's permission to include PC information on its surveys and I've always said no.

AC4 and BF4 also look an play better on my $450 PC with an FX 6300 and an R9 270. Consoles will never outperform PC, never.

It plays and looks better on PC, control on this is clunky and the fps gets low. Which is why PC still has a higher score and way way more players.

Furthermore no one knows when ROS is going to come to console version, if at all due to super low sales.

Anymore poster not doing his research?

#34 Posted by ni6htmare01 (888 posts) -

of cause PC will always look the best. look at how many new video cards coming out. This Gen will be PC>>>PS4>>>XB1 for multiplatform and we all agreed that Wii-U is getting no 3rd party support!

1. You do realize 1% of PC Gamers is still several times more than total PS4 Gamers?

2. That % has increased drastically since 2010.

You just smashed his dreams of trying to pass off info from nearly 4 years ago and compare it to today in a vain attempt to trump PC gamers........

unoptimized or not a $250 7950 is so much more powerful than either console that it plays the game better. Imagine in 2-3 years where pc hardware will be. A dev will actually have to try and make a pc port worst

well first off running directX 11 in 720p isnt exactly impressive

second off we dont have any dx11 games yet because we had to wait for you guys to upgrade your hardware

Yeah that's probably not the reason. And we do have games that support Dx11

@kalipekona: It's not an excuse, it's a fact. Your not liking low end computers doesn't make them cease to exist. If you want to brag about the positives, you must accept the negatives as well.

This is true.

Should I feel special being part of that 1%?

I don't have to. It's already been done. Both the CPU and GPU as well as the PS4 CPU and GPU have been benchmarked, but as usual I suspect every reply of yours will be along the lines of :"Prove it!!!!1111one"

#46 Posted by NFJSupreme (5119 posts) -

Consoles will never run games better than a competent pc. It's not just max settings. It's performance which these new gen of consoles still lack. Only game I can think of that run at a steady 60fps is forza. All the other games that claim 60fps average in the 50s with drops to the 30 or lower. Whereas on my pc all my games run at 60fps. For example bf4 at a rock solid 60fps with no dips looks amazing. Especially when explosions are happening everywhere. You don't get this performance on consoles even on the ps4 which is the most powerful.

Well, if that leaked picture turns out to be real, it looks better than the console versions even though the picture was taken with a 2 MP phone camera while moving and unfocused, That should give you a rough estimate.

the computer platform offers people the choice of a low end build, around the specs of a PS4 with like a 7870 or something for about the same price (reference farrel2k's build) , right the way up as high as you want to go.

so where is the negative? if someone came to me with the money to buy ps4 and two games i will build them a better pc and get them four games.

these weaker computers are probably around the wii u's price, or were built pre-8th gen, in which case i dont think the comparison is fair unless we're comparing dollar for dollar, and if we compare dollar for dollar the pc is going to win. especially if you want to play online with xbox one or ps4. i mean, come on.

would you tell a ferrari owner that cars still suck because ferraris are cars and robin reliants are cars and robin reliants suck? ferrari driver you must accept the negatives of your platform as well.
