That does look like The Last of Us.

Never heard of it.

Thats because the title name wasn't translated before. The title used to be "Moo mooo moo moo".

I'm guessing by this that you disliked The Last of Us?

Its a cross gen game... a multiplat cross gen game i might add... They don't really have the overheads (360 being the lowest common denominator) to really take the game too extremes in terms of engine capabilities. So all thats left is slight visual tweaks which only a core gamer could spot (resolution, AA etc).... once we get a PC/Current gen only game.. then we will see a bigggg difference. In terms of what the engine can do with physics, massive jump in graphical fidelity (no need to tailor an engine for 360 power and therefor limit the engines overall potential on current gen) and content... detail...particulates etc.

Lets see what the witcher looks like on PS4 vs X1... then we can really talk :)

@walloftruth: Okay lets give you a quick breakdown of upgrades

Original Rig (back a few years ago now but you'll get the idea)

AMD Phenom x4 9504GB 1066 DDR2 Kingstom RAM

nvidia GTX380

lets leave out HDD and MOBO as at least one HDD gets bought a year (so £100 yearly insrtantly) and MOBO is a who rig upgrade really so thats a minimum of £500 for a new rig

So year one, upgrade the GFX to an AMD Radeon 4970 .. at time of purchase thats a £200 quid card, + HDD = 300

Year Two, Upgrade the CPU to a Phenom II (which actually required a new Mobo but nevermind, we shall leave that out too ;)) that was £150 at time of purchase, plus 8GB of Decent DDR3 Ram, thats another £150 at leats.... so thats 300 easy there

Next year... well we need a new case and PSU! but we have to add on the new Mobo here as it cost over 120 quid at the time, so thats easily 250 quid

3 years ... £850... not including games. Shit i could have bought a PS3 at that time for 300 quid and saved myself £550!.. and still be able to play the games i wanted too. Agreed graphical fidelitry wasn't the best but regardless.... its cheap... which is the point of our discussion

1. You need to buy a new HDD every year for £100?

2. You have a graphics card that doesn't exist?

3. You need to upgrade your hardware yearly for what reason?

----------------------------

1. Nope, you don't, bad trolling.

2. That statement already proves that you have no idea about PC gaming. Someone who thinks a GTX 380 exits clearly never build a PC or looked for parts online.

3. Nope, just another bad troll attempt. Hell, a PC that I've build 7 years ago still outperforms the Xbox 360 and PS3 im every multiplat when it comes to FPS, screen resolution and graphics settings.

And my newly build PC that cost me $730 will easily beat the Xbone and PS4 for this generation. It already does in games like Watch_Dogs, Thief and Battlefield 4.

do me a favor, read my other posts before spewing your absalute s**te

This again? A $2000 PC can turn out to cost less than a Xbone or PS4 depending on how many games you buy; the most important part of the equation which you conveniently left out.

You can last a whole console generation with one PC, if you buy a mid-high end PC. Without upgrading anything. I know that, because that is what I do.

you telling me a PC from 2006 can run Battlefield 4 at a reasonable framerate / visual fidelity? no.... sorry but it can't

Also if you buys 3 games a year (120 quid minimum) and i buy a PS4/you buy a £1200 PC ... the console will work out cheaper.. this is basic maths

you cannot argue that buying 50 indie games for the same price as 3 AAA games makes it more cost effective.... games don't come into this conversation.

Also whether i got the part names correct or no is mute... the maths still works and its still WAY more expensive to play on PC than PS4.... show me a breakdown to prove me wrong (including benchmarks to show BF4 running at at least 30fps 720)

So you upgraded from one gpu that doesn't exist to another gpu that doesn't exist.

Apologies... 4870 ... and can't exactly remember the GTX version of the original card but thats all besides the point... care to comment on the actual subject of the post rather than being pedantic?

The gtx 380 doesn't exist either so what card did you have before the 4870?

you actually made me look back at my old shit.... GTX260 ... back in the day of the orignal footlong cards that took a small power station and pleanty of cash to run.

Now... care to comment on the post? no thought not :) so be quiet

Troll much? The 260 and 4870 have almost identical performance.

yesss.... but my 260 blew.... and thought the AMD chipset on a Radeon card would fit well with my AMD motherboard chipset... and they are far from identical my friend.... ah well if you wont play the game... you are will just be ignored :)

I like how the article left out price... which is the most important factor.

I switch from PC gaming about 3 years ago. I was sick of having to keep up to date and upgrade at least one component a year (around £300 minimum PER YEAR) just to keep ontop of that ever breaking wave of games.

PC gaming has its fedelity and yes its impressive (BF4 on PC is an entirely different beast to PS4) but the drawback of PC are massive and cannot be ignored

Personally... i'm happy i shifted to console. Spent what i would have in a single year on hardware for one product which will keep me happily gaming for the next 5 years at least. I'll use the other £1200 MINIMUM saved on somthing more worth while. This is the major issue. Who has that much money just to throw around.... and any hermit who banters on about PC superiority and doesn't recognise this fact is either an ignorant bellend with lots of money, or are just trolling. So can we put this topic to sleep again for the 500th time?

Hmm, where to start here. First of all, I've had my gaming rig for a little or five years now. I haven't had to upgrade a single component. Only just now am I finding that I need to upgrade to a new machine. Yeah, it will be costly, but I'll keep that same rig for another few years. I don't know what you are going on about here saying you had to minimum spend that much money every single year. You don't have to do that unless you were upgrading the gpu once a year. Even then, you do realize that most pc games allow you to adjust the settings so your machine can run it without being brought to its knees. So much fail in your post, so much fail.

So if you turn down your settings just so you don't have tpo upgrade your rig yearly why don't you just buy a PS4? your knocking down the visuals to the same level anyways... so much fail.. so much

Your trolling is awful.

Its not a troll honestly.... I understands that PC gaming is much more than just Graphical fidelity... but poeple forget the cost... which is massive (and nobody can deny this) and the trouble with drivers/hardware ... shoddy developer support (most AAA games these days have a console as a lead platform) and therefor PC usually get shoddy ports... at least at launch until they release stability fixes and that could take months if not years.

Its more cost effective for the average gamer to play console, much more casual and far more enjoyable for the most part..... did i mention its cheaper? wayyyy cheaper...... most of us have families to support and stuff... and i don't mean IMVU girlfriends ;)
