once again these comparison videos are meaningless unless gamespot starts uploading the PS4 videos at 1080p. Thats the biggest difference that we going to be able to see.!!

Wow, console gamers have to buy their games twice for a graphical upgrade. So lets do the math. Pay $60 for the game for either Xbox 360 or PS3, a year later you buy it again for $60 and then have to pay between $400 and $500 depending on what console you have. Seeing as though PS4 sold better than Xbone, I'll use that as a reference. Two games, equalling $120, plus another $400 equals $520. I've had my PC for three years and can already run everything on ultra at 1080p 60+ fps smoothly, and I got the game for $7.00 on a Steam flash sale. Seeing as though I've already payed my PC off with all of those amazing Steam sales, the difference between consoles and PC is $513.00. I'll stick with PC, way more affordable than consoles. I can't believe people fall for this crap. Then again, they're not called peasants for no reason.

Oh Nice! Now it looks almost as good as my PC which ran it on Ultra settings at 1080p and 60FPS........ and I got it for $12.50 during the Steam summer sale. Yay, next gen console nonsense. 

And this was a pretty terrible comparison video.... at least show off some parts with vistas and some action, these were the worst scenes to use.

AWESOME!!! Yet another abominably shitty video that's NOT in 1080p trying in vain & failing from the start to show anything except how shit useless comparison videos are. There's no PS3/PS4 comparison & the PS4 only gets a pathetic token look in for the last 40 seconds. Who's the idiot who made this? Without a doubt THE single worst comparison video I've seen out of every single shitty comparison video you muppets have ever done. I don't know how many times you clowns have to be told, POST FULL RES PICTURES FOR CHRIST'S SAKE.

So, let me think about this one...

Spend 65 euro's (as that's how much it costs here) for a game i have already played on the xbox 360 that only looks a tiny bit more crisp...

Hahahahahahahaha. NO.

Funny that no-one has done a PC vs 'next gen' yet.

I tend to build games up in my head. Seeing them side by side (360 vs X1) I can see the difference, but if I jumped in and started playing the X1 version I would just think to myself, "I remember the 360 version looking exactly like this...what's different?"


It's like watched Standard definition and then switching the High Definition. Without that comparison from one to the other you don't notice. The X1 version looks nice, but not so nice that I'm gonna say "oh my god, this looks incredibly better" because let's face it, last gen's edition still looks great.

why did they change her face so much? On X1 she's very different

I don't like her new face, her "old" one fitted to her personality, this one seems so plain and out of place. Maybe I just got too used to the old one, but still.

Xbox One version looks better than the ps4 version for some reason.

I would have expected to see a comparison with the old PC version - it already had higher resolution textures and better lighting effects. Is this version just a port of the PC graphics to the new Radeon & x86 based consoles, or did they actually put work into the game?

I have a $800 2013 desktop, monitor not included in price, a 20mbps download connection, a freshly defragged hard drive, no other programs running and every video I watch on Gamespot is choppy as hell no matter what browser .So it's not even possible for me to tell. Plays fine on YouTube though. Ever since Gamespot updated the site, everything runs like shit.

We won't be seeing big leaps from last gen to this gen in graphics. Probably the 9th gen will be a big leap if they do decide to make another console. Seeing 4k in person I can say it was like seeing 1080p for the first time after owning analog tube tv.

Her cheeks look more defined on the X1. 
Pretty much all I noticed.

It's just better resolution. Besides that, I don't see better textures or improved character models. This is just ramped up for the next gen. Not really a true next-gen game.

You can't really compare consoles based on this.

I love the ps4, hate xbone fanboys but have to say the bone version looks noticeably better...

@billlabowski  Wow. PC gamers never fail to be completely arrogant. As a PC gamer, I am glad to see that I, myself, am not like this. I don't know understand why you are so judgmental about it. For your information, The Definitive Version was not aimed to be sold towards people that already own it on Xbox or PS3. It was for those who never played it before. Plus it's all about preference, not everyone wants to play games on a PC, maybe that isn't how they like it. We all have our own opinions on what we like so why is this crap still going on?

@hairdieIt really hurts you that, in fact, looks better on a console than in a PC, right?

Good number of websites have already verified it looks better. Deal with it. And what is the problem anyway? it's not like PC gaming will disappear because of it or Gave Newel will close Steam in desperation or Crystal Dynamics is going to take all your games away you know...

@boixwunderGotta love how some of the "master race" seems to expend more time in console realted posts that playing their actual games. xDD

Fanboys, they are so much fun xDDD

@CrouchingWeasel Sounds to me we're having a bit of a bad day.

@CrouchingWeasel yea these recent comparison shots suck so bad because we're really at the point where the resolution of the video makes a huge difference because those subtler effects and jaggies are the only real different between old generation, the new, and PC... and you can't see shiz in this video!  It would be much better off with some high res screenshots...

@billzihang Everyone knows the PC version destroys the console version. So it's better to just compare console to console. The outcome will always upset the peasants.

@themc_7 Whenever I play games I try to put them on as higher settings as I can and get really excited about how good the game looks and then completely forget about the graphics 10 minutes later.

@Dharkanon PC version on ultimate settings still has better lightning, textures and shading. They re-made the Lara model to looks "prettier". That is truly the only thing they changed, and they are selling it for the full 60$. It's pretty hilarious.

Like anyone could see anything in a video that only showed the PS4 version on the bottom 3rd of the screen for only the last 40 seconds.

@virusqgFanboys in general are a disgrace for mature gaming. No matter which system they love.

@Warlord_Irochi No it doesn't. Looks much better and cleaner, with more foliage and tessellation, antialiasing way better anisotropic filtering. Better shadows as well, extremely better, more soft and dynamic. But, you already know that, which is why you're trolling. Envious troll.

@billlabowski @billzihang Yeah, no I don't wanna be gettin all upset. The chickens and horses sense ma stress level and then it's just all I can do to keep em calm during feedin time. And I needs ta finish all ma chores or mama won't let me play with the PS4!

Tommi88

@Onallion@Dharkanonyeah but you need a computer well over the price of a ps4 or xbox one to be able to have ultra settings with atleast 30 fps. Which imo is not worth it.

@billlabowski  That is just how majority of the PC gamers are. They can't be mature like the other group of PC gamers that swing both ways. I have done my reviews on the consoles and PC's as well. PC gamers (arrogant ones) are eating it now because the PS4 and Xbox One are catching up to them and it pisses them off because they were the "top dogs" per say.

@billlabowski Dude, I play on PC too so don't make up stuff when you. obviously, have not checked the game properly.

But if it makes you happy then yes, sure, I'm trolling and I am gealous about a game I already own on Pc too. IGN, Destructoid, Kotaku, gametrailers, Gamesindustry and Rock Paper Shotgun are trolling too, right?

You continue with the self-denial, makes you look really mature...

@hairdie "Waist of time"? what is that? A clock on a belt? lol

Just a joke. As of now also Gamesindustry, Destructoin and IGN agree in that. So it's a fact already. That was the idea after all, make a better version than the previous ones, no surprises there.

@rpea777 @nl_skipper So many people talking out of their asses its funny.  Some games you may be able to play on high ok.  But stuff like BF4, and Titanfall will make most GPUs melt if you try to play them on Ultra with everything on.  Yes we know PCs are better blah blah but i am being honest and at $400 the consoles for now are better value for money........HOWEVER in 2 or 3 years this will change as it always does, and please dont even start on steam machines, just be a big boy ignore Gabe and build a proper PC.

@nl_skipperplaying this on my i7 dell computer that cost about $800. Now I can run ALL of the nextgen games with NO lag with graphics set on Ultra. =)

@CrouchingWeasel  Nope, you can't, but you CAN buy one for the price of the Xone and have it play at a higher FPS and look just as good.  If you want to play it on highest settings on PC it will look much better than any other version, but requires more horsepower than the consoles have.

@Tommi88 @Onallion @Dharkanon  False. With the TressFX Off, I play Ultra with my 450GTX, very old nowadays and very cheap. A very good example: 2 of the 14 Steam Machines are 500$ and a lot better than PS4 and XBOX. All what people can argue is that consoles are optimised, but not anymore just consoles with this Steam project. The CyberpowerPC for instance is still "almost" a PC, "almost" as optimised as consoles are, and it can "almost" double console performance, and for the same prize as the XBOne. Believe what you want. I do need a PC as nearly everybody, I prefer buying a little better PC rather than buying 2 systems. A lot of console-fans just are blind. I can only understand those that have money, or those people that don't need a PC for NON-gaming purposes.

@Tommi88@Onallion@Dharkanon My old PC is a Q6600 with 4GB RAM and GTX275 (7y old CPU + 7y old RAM + 5y old GPU) can run this like XBONE :P. Oh and with 60fps at 1680 x 1050 (15% less pixels than 1080p).

@Tommi88 @Onallion @Dharkanon A 2008 computer can do that man, this thing of having to own THE best computer on the market to compete with consoles, or be a bit better is an old and pure BS. Most companies set those recommended settings for the game on an absurd level (look at Max Payne 3 for example), just so people think it's going to get the full potential of a new technology, hence amazing graphics; Just check some benchmarking videos, the thing about building computers isn't even technical, a simple video-proofing on youtube already hands you what you need to get a functional gaming rig.
