More powerful console = much better performance.

This is hardly news at this point, but there it is.

Moving onto performance, the PS4 puts in a superb effort, offering up a practically locked 60fps experience that hardly ever deviates from its intended target. The action remains solidly v-synced, so we never see any tearing, while interruptions in smoothness are kept to a minimum. Hectic scenes that see copious amounts of particle and lighting effects thrown around the environments sometimes cause rare interruptions in fluidity, but as we're only looking at one or two frame drops at most, these mild dips in performance go by mostly undetected.

Indeed, despite pushing 44 per cent more pixels on-screen, the experience on PS4 is more consistent than on the Xbox One when the engine is under stress. When all hell breaks loose we see a heavier drop in performance on Xbox One, while the PS4 usually maintains its solid 60fps lock without any fuss. In these scenes Garden Warfare displays an extra layer of fluidity on the Sony console - although we should point out that the core gameplay never feels compromised on the Xbox One. PS4 simply offers a slightly more refined version of the same experience.

Xbox One owners: "We get all games first. I played first, i won, you lost. We have homemedia and no other platform has it"

PS4 owners: "No way. PS4 is more powerful than PC. You can´t see the differences!!! You lying. PS4 is clearly best version"

Wii U owners: "Who wants to play this crap game anyway? We don´t need this crappy game"

88% of PC gamers will play it below PS4 level period,the majority will play it worse,and only a few will play it better.

Your constant damage control and total hiding on PC is a joke,we all know you are a lemming in Hermit suit...lol

I would hope that a game the PS4 gets 6 months later would look better regardless of the spec differences.

It's a fun little game which would be equally enjoyed no matter what system it's being played on. These differences mean nothing

P-vs-Z:GW was created way before all the SDK updates on the XB1. If the developer went back and updated the game using all the new tools and extra power, it would run exactly like the PS4 version. It's funny that when OutLast was released on the XB1 and DF said it was better then the PS4 version Cows claimed devs had more time to improve it. LMAO!! So i guess the same can't be said for P-vs-Z:GW

Doesn't change the fact that 1080p 60FPS solid >>>>>>> 900p with sub 60FPS.

Hahahahaha, all this delusion. It took months of extra optimisation time to get Outlast to 1080p/60 on the Strugglebox and even then the frame rate still dropped more on it than the on the PS4. Love a good Crackace meltdown

Wonder how much better Peggle 2 will be, I remember reading about that game having frame rate drops on the fucking Xbone.

Sniper Elite 3 uses the xbox one SDK update and runs better on PS4 in fact as much as 30FPS advantage on PS4..

Where the fu** DF say the xbox one version is better.? Where.?

In fact watch the video the games drops a hell of allot more on xbox one than on PS4 specially on gameplay scenes.

Even with the extra time the xbox one version deeps more..lol

Bolded part : They both got a fair share of drops, and only place wheres ps4 is actually in the "lead" (saying this because you use "drops hell of allot *Which is alot* but alot more xbox one) which is pretty much only in the fire scenes..

Underlined/bolded part : ps4 got the lowest drop, which is under 30 fps 28/29fps.. i would say pretty much equal in this game, only a minor fps win in "some cases" for xb1 and some for ps4.. just look at the whole video el tormented.. don't even try to make this a "win" for ps4 either. if anything its a draw..

I guess you missed the part about it not using any of the updated SDK tools. lol!! It can easily run at 1080P 60fps right now if the devs went back and updated it. Give it a rest troll. Keep the tears flowing. Every smart gamer knows the XB1 launched bareboned with lots of important things missing that weren't going to be ready until now. XB1 was suppose to launch next month. Why do you think the XB1 is getting updates almost every month? WhyI keep saying "Greatness is coming."

They had months of extra optimisation time. And that's not even taking into account Sniper Elite 3 and Metro Redux which were on the new SDKs and still underperformed on the Strugglebox.

It can easily run at 1080P 60fps right now if the devs went back and updated it.

Prove it.

Every smart gamer knows the XB1 launched bareboned with lots of important things missing that weren't going to be ready until now. XB1 was suppose to launch next month.

The leaked Xbone road map from 2011 showed that MS expected a new Nintendo console in 2012 and a new PlayStation console in 2013, and aimed for a 2013 release as a consequence.

Why do you think the XB1 is getting updates almost every month?

Because their engineers had to spend all their time pre-launch rewriting the Bone's shitty OS to get rid of the DRM.

Give it a rest troll. Keep the tears flowing.

Bolded : Care to find me a link to that ? tried some google searches.. didnt find anything ..

Also for the underlined part : it seems that cows are using the fire scene for "xbox drops more", but the funny part is when i press play on that analysis video, it starts with ps4 dropping ? and for being a better machine its seems that its underperforming for being sooo much stronger as cows says (stronger yes no doubt, but im really not seeing a THAT (soooo much stronger) massive jump from ps4 to x1 imo, ohh also ps4 is the one with the lowest drop ? (i think its under 30 fps)

Lay off the trolling dude. the ps4 isnt that magical :P

XB1 original launch date was Sept 2014 dumb dumb. Keep your tearing and damage control flowing. They were no where near ready to launch in Nov 2013. They still have things in the XB1 that are under NDA. All these updates are proof the XB1 isn't where it was suppose to be at when it launched in Nov 2013.

I literally just showed you an official MS document showing a projected late 2013 launch. When was the Xbone released again? Hmmm, let me think.

It's time to stop making excuses for your shit brand's shit console. It'll be a short generation so you won't have to be in purgatory for too long. For your sake, anyway.

Check out tormentos' video above. PS4 drops frames harder during cutscenes, but at least it doesn't hit during gameplay. Thief had the same problem too, for some reason.

Talk to AMD as they are the ones with the NDA's. Yes, the projected date was 2013, but they wanted to push it back to Sept 2014 because they weren't ready. Do some more research troll. Yes, you are definitely owning yourself GrenadeLicker. Very sad. Just as delusional as the rest of the cows on here.

Which is the video i'm using/referring too, the cutscenes is still in game fyi, and based on the video its also on gameplay, same x1.. only that x1 doesnt really drop near as much in "cutscenes" as ps4.. which doesnt really help your point or w/e :), which i also was referring too.. a drop in frames is a drop in frames - but it seems like cows/fanboys only want to use that in favor for ps4.. makes me wonder, i would say if anything its a draw, despite ps4 being a better machine (for outlast).

Buy yeah, i did notice that in thief, weird stuff.

also did you have a link for the peggle part ? just curious.

You could argue that if you wanted to, you could also argue that if you're gonna have frame rate drops on consoles it may as well be during the uninteractive parts. Either way, it's not a good reflection on the Xbone for an indie game like Outlast to do the same or worst with more optimisation time.

As for Peggle 2's issues:

Peggle 2 on Xbox One has graphical issues. On at least a handful of levels, the framerate takes a huge dive. This isn’t some 3D-intensive first-person shooter. Peggle 2 is still just a 2D physics-based puzzler with the occasional particle effect. Regardless, PopCap must have still struggled to optimize it for Microsoft’s latest console.

That pedantry still lives in a few places, then, but are they the very best places? They would have been more welcome ironing out the annoying frame-rate issue that very occasionally crops up at exactly the same time you fire the ball,

Expected and I'm not surprised on PvZ performing better and being in a higher resolution considering the hardware differences.
