Best on PC.... Sorry I couldn't resist.

$10 cheaper too. Glad they aren't charging $60 for the PC version like the Ubisoft and EA games.

Yes, but there's no resale value in PC games. I could easily resell a $60 console game a month later for $35-$40. Who's going to rebuy a $50 PC game for that amount? Not Gamestop, that's for sure. lol!!

I'm still impressed that Creative Assembly (Total War series) can make such a good-looking game like this.

It does look a little "clean" and simple in some areas, but the lighting and mood is there.

I'm not a troll, but that isn't true at all.

The PS4 GPU is 1.84 TF. The ONE GPU is 1.31 TF.

XB1 has 768 shader cores (12 Compute Units) vs PS4's 1136 shader cores (18 Compute Units).

XB1 GPU clocked @ 853 MHz vs PS4 GPU clocked @ 800 MHz.

The GPU's are both AMD GCN architecture and have the same rendering technology in them for the most part though. On paper the PS4's GPU is 45-50% stronger than XB1 GPU taking into account everything. This power difference also translates into real life with games like TR:DE. 1080p 30fps on the ONE and 1080p 60fps on the PS4. Need I really go on? Not to mention the GPGPU compute on PS4. Now that will make PS4 pull ahead even further. It's the unspoken PS4 advantage. But then I does all this really matter? How strong hardware is? We should all be one as gamers. Stick together through thick and thin.

Oh like that makes it any better... the same Creative Assembly that made Total War: Rome II? I could have been referring to either developer and it would make no difference to my point.

That's just ridiculous. you're saying this game is gonna be bad just because the last Aliens game was, despite it being made by completely different people and going for a very very different approach.

I am more referring to the publisher more than anything, they have the final say over all quality control. And they do not have a very good track record recently. I little rule I have, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice...

Not sure how I feel about this game. On one side I want to see a good Alien game, on the other CA broke my heart with the release of Rome II.

As a big (I mean really big) Alien fanatic, I'm eager to see what comes of this. It looks good and I'll be playing on PC where I can set my own graphics to my own priorities (aka at least 720p with AA and 50fps with high textures, until I have a better card, though I bet I can reach 900p).

I hope they focus on fixing the difficulty of the game. If it's too much then it stops being fun to play, and they need to remember they are still making a game.

If this is based on Alien, I guess the sequel will be based on Aliens and will be a mindless shooter because that's all the movie was.

Wait, what? Do you mean you aren't some 15 years old teenager yourself? You're an actual adult? That makes your posts even more sad and embarrassing. I actually feel bad for you.

Game looks great. I hope it's more "atmosphere" and less "pew pew".

Yes, of course. Great film from perhaps the greatest era of film, period. How that denotes to this game I don't understand. The atmosphere in film works differently than in games. If you are insinuating that this art direction is good because it tries to mimic something else--well, that isn't art direction at all. That is more of a cash grab trying to bank on die hards of the films.

If they finally make a great Alien game (how hard can it be?) we need to move on to making a modern great Blade Runner game. With open world, noir feel and flying cars.

on paper the PS4 gpu is not a true 45-50% faster....

PS4 is only 29% faster in total TFLOP performance.

Then Texture rates the PS4 is again only 29% faster

Now with Pixel rates then PS4 does have 47% lead on the X1.

so on average on paper PS4 is only around 35% faster.

Using TR is wrong since that game was developed by two totally different dev's for both consoles we have no idea if the one team was as good as the other etc. Also TR has a gpgpu based physics system where then PS4 had the resources to run the feature better.

I don't think we have actually ever had an "alien" game. We have had "aliens" games, AVP 1999 got aliens pretty much perfect imo. But "alien" which is a totally different movie and (arguably genre) I haven't seen.

What's to argue. It will look better on PC's as PC's aren't a stagnant system. lol!! If consoles could be upgraded like PC's it would look exactly the same on consoles and PC's. Most gamers don't care if it looks better on PC's is my point. Gamers will still flock to the console versions and enjoy it as much as PC gamers.

if you mean the 2010 one i agree. The one Sega released in 2010 is actually quite good with the marine campaign been memorable and quite intense and at times scary (partly thanks to great sound design and good A.I). Even the graphics were better ( at least on pc ) compared to colonial marines plus its goretastic . Best $10 bucks i spent on a game last year
