Battlefield Hardline Will Run At 1080p/60fps On Xbox One

Visceral Games will be aiming for parity between the PS4 and Xbox One versions.

battlefield hardline

Visceral Games are working on the next entry in the Battlefield franchise which will be titled Hardline. Although different in theme than the main Battlefield series, it will still remain true to the roots that the the franchise is known. GamingBolt was able to get in touch with Ian Milham who is the Creative Director on Battlefield: Hardline at Visceral Games.

Battlefield Hardline is already confirmed to be running at 1080p and 60fps on the PlayStation 4, so where does that leave the Xbox One version? Ian confirmed to us, that ‘it should be the same.’

“If you look at the games that Visceral Games has made before, we have always strive for total parity between our platforms,” Ian explained. “Of course, the PC version, it will do whatever your PC can handle, and the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will obviously not be as high res as compared to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. But those two [PS4 and Xbox One] should be locked in together.”

Battlefield Hardline will be available later this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3 and PC. Stay tuned for more news and updates.

    This plus dedicated servers. Xbox all the way.

    • Hates bad writers.

      Everyone gets dedicated servers, the only problem is that it DOESN’T use Xbox servers, which are likely better than EA’s.

    • http://ninsci.weebly.com/ Deeboy

      I might be wrong but I swore I saw somewhere that Microsoft stated that all their games will use their dedicated servers.

    • Hates bad writers.

      Any game that doesn’t get servers will get theirs, gratis. EA provides their own servers, which is a bad thing. But crappy to good servers won’t make a difference simply because the net code baffles them on a day to day basis.

      I don’t expect this game to run properly, and anyone who buys it only has themselves to blame.

    • http://ninsci.weebly.com/ Deeboy

      They had a ruff start with BF4 but they may follow titanfall and use MS servers this time. Who knows? One can only hope I guess. Either way its good to see devs starting to take time to make quality games for both consoles.

    • Guest

      Wait for Digital Foundry. It’s amazing how quickly some of you grasp at straws.

      Anyone with technical knowledge knew PS4′s game graphics performance would be better for the entire generation as soon as the specs were official. That was well over a year ago.

    • http://ninsci.weebly.com/ Deeboy

      Lol. I haven’t seen anything coming in the future to proved that. The ps4 is easier to develop for because of its last Gen unified architecture but going forward. Think again.

    • Guest

      LOL how did those misterx insider “megatons” work out for you? You just keep blindly believing everything he strings you along with.

    • http://ninsci.weebly.com/ Deeboy

      Lol. I’ve got plenty of megatons at E3 none of them from misterx and none of them you’ll be able to play because you’re still waiting for greatness. Derp. 9 of them matter of fact plus the best games that will be available on both systems.

    • Michael Norris

      Sony wanted a console that was easy to develop for and had some secret sauce which is GpGpU.The xbone has it, but it’s nowhere near as good. Yes i copied and paste it…

      ”Cerny, “The original AMD GCN architecture allowed for one source of graphics commands, and two sources of compute commands. For PS4, we’ve worked with AMD to increase the limit to 64 sources of compute commands — the idea is if you have some asynchronous compute you want to perform, you put commands in one of these 64 queues, and then there are multiple levels of arbitration in the hardware to determine what runs, how it runs, and when it runs, alongside the graphics that’s in the system.”

      “The reason so many sources of compute work are needed is that it isn’t just game systems that will be using compute — middleware will have a need for compute as well. And the middleware requests for work on the GPU will need to be properly blended with game requests, and then finally properly prioritized relative to the graphics on a moment-by-moment basis.”

      This concept grew out of the software Sony created, called SPURS, to help programmers juggle tasks on the CELL’s SPUs — but on the PS4, it’s being accomplished in hardware.”

      You guys really should keep track of who you troll. We’ve been through this over and over and over again. For the last time I’m not interested. Only in Xbox my friend. You seem to be too because you’re always on Xbox articles.

    • Guest

      This is a multiplatform article.

    • http://ninsci.weebly.com/ Deeboy

      Specifying the Xbox. Now stop trolling me. Thanks.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      “P-P-POWER OF THE GDDR5!”

      Sony can sell you garbage and you would claim it’s caviar. Hilarious. PS4 has limited GPGPU capability as you would need a much higher end more modern AMD GPU like the R 280 or 290 to try it and even then Nvidia cards will be able to unlock it’s true potential with CUDA cores.

      The secret sauces is as fake on the 900PS4 as it is on the xbone.

      PC is the master Race :^)

    • Guest

      You still believe all his nonsense secret sauce conspiracy theories about Xbox secretly being more powerful. As soon as you get called on it you move the goalposts to games. Typical fanboy twisting around like a snake to avoid reality.

      PS4 games not on Xbox One revealed at E3 2014: LittleBigPlanet 3, Entwined, Bloodborne, The Talos Principle, Let It Die, Rachet & Clank, Infamous sidestory, Kingdom Under Fire 2 and tons of indie games. No Man’s Land, Grim Fandango, and ABZU timed exclusive.

      For the rest of 2014 PS4 has the best visuals on every AAA multiplatform console game, TLOU Remake, Driveclub, LittleBigPlanet 3, Infamous sidestory, Oddworld, Natural Doctrine, Tropico 5, Samurai Warriors 4, and other indie games (Hohokum, Entwined, Helldivers, Guns Up!, etc.)

    • http://ninsci.weebly.com/ Deeboy

      Hey creepy troll stalker. Do you know how many Xbox related articles I visit? Not nearly as many as you so you think mentioning one site and one comment from that site discredits me then you’re really full of it. What’s worst? Me visiting sites pertaining to Xbox or you stalking me at those sites. Actually you’re pretty damn creepy for doing that.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      Thats a lot of games that will be on PC and run better with higher resolutions and framerates on PC there derp

      PC truly is the master race :^)

      Is Hardline really using MS servers? EA’s servers were painful in Bf4

    • http://ninsci.weebly.com/ Deeboy

      The last time I heard Microsoft said that all Xbox games will use their servers going forward. I’m not sure about mmos though.

    • Rai

      They will be used if the devs decide to use em. Bf4 used Ea’s servers so I doubt Hardline will :/

    • http://ninsci.weebly.com/ Deeboy

      Who knows. Titanfall used Azure they are EA also. We’ll see.

    • Rai

      True. Hopefully they will.

      oh its you again, one of the stupidest fanboy and its EA hosting the server nitwit not MS, gid your stupid, Stupid fanboys just the way MS likes em.

  • Lord Akki

    “But those two [PS4 and Xbox One] should be locked in together.”
    NO, PS4 does not need to be locked in together with the pos Xbone. It is a far more superior gaming machine.

    • LGK

      “far more superior gaming machine” lol

      If superior graphics is so important to you, just get a PC.

    • Michael Norris

      No he is right,don’t bring Pc into a console conversion.

    • Mine

      If you are going to brag, then yes we need to bring pc into this.

      Both consoles are weak

      “ju-ju-just buy a PC!”

      Meanwhile 8+ million and counting PS4s sold.

    • http://www.xboxonedaily.com TheRedButterfly

      lol Site your source. That number is bullshit.

    • Guest

      LOL common sense and reality is the source, something you lack. Another fanboy in denial.

      7 million as of April 4 2014, it’s been more than two months since then. They’ve been selling about a million a month on average. Even if they only sold 500k in those two months (sales dropping by half) they’re at 8 million right now.

    • Michael Norris

      That number is quite close actually thank’s to Watchdogs Ps4 got quite a boost.I am going to say 8.1-8.2 million.I found it odd that Sony didn’t bring up any sells figures at E3…if it was MS we would have got a whole teardown.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      Hi derp! You still suck at this! PC is the master race!

    • Guest

      That’s a lot of lies and hatred over PS4′s stronger console hardware, ~3.5 million sales lead, large number of 1st party developers, more games, and more developer support. 8+ million and counting. Nothing you say will stop it, you are helpless. Keep lying and hating while everyone else ignores you.

      Mustard peasant spreading lies and hatred. You must have issues to literally hate a piece of plastic and people who like gaming on consoles.

      The real “god gaming race” owns both a good PC and consoles, and they find your lies, hatred, and ignorance disgraceful. Keep crying and squirting that mustard everywhere.

      Mustards don’t have “a point”, they just hate anyone who doesn’t have the time, money, or interest in building and maintaining a PC, and hate the fact that consoles offer a comparable gaming experience and exclusive games they can’t have. Unless they grow up and buy a console themselves, which isn’t that expensive compared to their imaginary quad SLI 4k PCs.

      The most hateful, demented mustards have laughable mid-range PCs with GTX 650 Tis that can’t even run the latest games at 1080p 60 fps very high/ultra settings. They’re mostly poor peasants who pirate all their games and hate anything they can’t download off a torrent.,,

    • R3S0LU710N_M34NS_N07H1NG

      Compared to how many gaming PCs out there?

      Besides, when you compare the number of countries PS4 is available in to XOne, it almost seems to me that PS4 probably doesn’t have as much of a substantial lead as you are blindly willing to believe.

    • Michael Norris

      No you don’t bring a Pc in a console discussion.MS made a weaker console than Sony so get over it.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      Yes we will bring in PC because it’s hilarious to see you fling feces when the real powerhouses come to play :^)

      Yes you do when talking about graphics. Whether you like it or not, neither console is in the position to say “my games look the best.”
      I can agree on Xbox having more features, but never on the earlier statement for either one.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      It’s hilarious the shills for the 900P TVStation 4 don’t want PC to be mentioned every time they insult the xbone.

      Almost all PC revenue comes from MOBAs and MMOs running on PCs less powerful than a PS4.

      Keep hiding behind PCs, most people will keep buying PS4s over Xbox.

    • Dan

      Not content with PS4 hardware being a bit more powerful than Xbox One, now PS4 gamers are trying to get one over on PC gamers.. Haha!

      As a console gamer I can admit that consoles will always be behind PC’s in terms of specs. What you’re doing is futile!

    • Guest

      No I’m just pointing out that most people are buying PS4 over Xbox anyway.

    • Joseph Lan

      This isn’t about PC versus PS4. It’s about PS4 destroying the Xbox One. Both in sales, and in performance.

      Consoles will always be the best source for great exclusives as they usually have big budgets provided by Sony or MS. You don’t get that on PC.

      But.. I don’t like fanboyism no matter what platform you support. And you’re clearly showing it. The PS4 might not have been what it is today if it wasn’t for the 360 you know.

      MS did everything right with the 360 (except for the RROD fiasco lol) but the PS3 was a mess. Now it’s the other way around..

      Don’t hate the competition. Competition is healthy.

  • Michael Norris

    Developers always say this crap yet the Xbone version suffers from less effects/lower frame rate drops or screen tear.

    • Hates bad writers.

      By all means, show us. The games run the same across both platforms, it’s just you who has a hard time dealing with it.

    • Joseph Lan

      And there goes the fanboy myth that games “have better framerates” on Xbone.

    • DGfishingtime

      True, but they also run at a lower resolution.

    • Guest

      Wrong. Digital Foundry proves that PS4 multiplat games consistently run at higher res and/or framerate.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      Digital Foundry always declares a PC victory with the PC version running at a higher res and framerate but you always ignore that too derp.

    • Joseph Lan

      Huh? Nearly every multiplatform game runs with a higher average framerate on the PS4 than the Xbone version. This was true with Battlefield 4 as well; just watch the Digital Foundry performance comparison video on Youtube.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      The one where PC completely smokes both at 1080P while the 900PS4 stutters with effects on low?

      PC is the master race :^)

  • Bozo Sapien

    Fanboys are just going to have to accept the fact that there really isn’t much power differential between the two consoles in real world scenarios. This is what happens when you listen to armchair developers on NeoGAF and Twitter.

    • Guest

      If they’re both running at the same resolution the Xbox version will have lower framerate and/or visual effects, or the PS4 hardware isn’t being pushed. There will never be parity.

    • Bozo Sapien

      The developers themselves say otherwise. I think they would know better than you.

    • Guest

      No. If they’re running at the same res/framerate there will be visual differences if PS4′s hardware is being pushed.

      We saw all this nonsense with Wolfenstein – they both run 1080p 60 fps! Then the truth comes out and the PS4 version has higher average resolution (Xbox version drops down to 960×1080 at times) and higher shadow quality over Xbox.

      Once again, wait for Digital Foundry. You’re making the same dumb arguments by authority the fanboys always make.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      Digital Foundry confirms all the time the PC version is the best version.

      But then Sony fans are so beta they have to settle for second place constantly. PC is the master race :^)

    • Bozo Sapien

      At least you admit you can’t the difference without Digital Foundry telling you what to think.

    • Bozo Sapien

      The game is currently 900p on PS4. Digital Foundry believes both versions will end up identical.

    • Michael Norris

      Just because they say it runs at 1080p 60fps does not mean their won’t be a difference between em.The Xbone version will come up short compared to the Ps4 version so get over it.

    • Bozo Sapien

      That’s not what the developers themselves have said.

    • Guest

      The Creative Director said “it should be the same.”

      I guarantee you if they’re both tagged as “1080p 60 fps” PS4 will still have a higher average framerate (less drops) and better visuals like higher quality AA, shadows, etc.

      There is no escaping PS4′s more powerful hardware unless the dev doesn’t take advantage of it.

    • Bozo Sapien

      You might want to call the developers and let them know that you know more than they do about their game. Maybe you can snag a job.

    • Guest

      Its not about knowing more than they do, its about the facts. And i love how you cant seem to deal with it. They said it themselves, they strive for parity. Its already been said that Hardline doesnt look as good as BF4, they obvioulsy coded to the lowest common denominator. And if the X1 version comes out and its not 1080p i will be right there to remind you and rub it in. I wouldnt trust anything these devs and PR guys say. But you fanboys just keep on being stupid.

    • Bozo Sapien

      I’m a fanboy because I’m repeating what the developers of the game have said? I guess that makes them Xbox One fanboys as well since they are the ones who said both versions will be the same. This comes from the developers themselves so, I hate to tell you, that is a FACT. Any other scenario you’ve dreamed up is not.

    • Ian Williams

      Bit like you, stupid.

    • Kiyashi

      Didn’t help out watch dogs much at 900p 30fps though eh ;)

    • Ian Williams

      wait there pony said 1080p on that, what happened? Bu Bu Bu bu

    • Joseph Lan

      The developers will always say any lie or half-truth for the sake of creating an illusion of “parity” between platforms. That’s because they don’t want to burn any bridges with any of the platform holders. If you’ve been a gamer for the last 8-10 years, you should already know this.

      Developers last gen also swore that the PS3 and 360 versions of multiplats were “about the same.” And yet, almost all multiplats looked or performed better on the 360 (mostly due to the better GPU, & easier development than the Cell processor).

      This generation, the gap in GPU horsepower is even BIGGER than last generation (i.e., HD7790 versus HD7850/7870). Draw your own conclusions based on that fact.

    • Bozo Sapien

      I would it that were actually a fact.

      The PS4′s GPU is better than the 7850 and would be equivalnt to a 7860. Which is still alot better than a 7790. Wile the X1′s GPU is actually inferior to the 7790. So its even worst than people have been saying.

      Yet another truthbomb from the PC master race :^)

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      So you are basically confirming the PS4 is inferior?

      When did i ever say the PS4 was superiro to the PC and with Mantle and DX12, these consoels are going to look even weaker and moe pathetic than they already are. But that doesnt change the fact that the X1 is the weakest and most pathetic of the bunch. Now buzz off wack job.

    • Bozo Sapien

      I’ve been a gamer since the 1980′s and employed in the industry since the 1990′s. I have a pretty good idea about how things work.

      Your analogy about last gen hardware is not applicable here since the PS3 and Xbox 360 were completely different architectures. Whether people want to admit it or not the current gen systems are very similar when it comes to real world performance. The major differences lie in the available resources and toolchain. Microsoft is working to improve theirs and closing the performance gap seen in early post launch titles. The proof is in the pudding.

    • Guest

      “That’s not what the developers themselves have said.”
      Yeah, cuz devs never lie, they always tell the truth. Love how naive you are, you bozo. And they be differences the X1 will probably have worst AA and lower quality effects. At the same time, these devs need to stop developing to the lowest common denominator. Also, just cuz they are saying this now doesnt mean it’ll actually happen. Just look at UFC, they said they were running at 1080p and now the demo comes out and its running at 900p

    • Bozo Sapien

      I love how you have to make excuses to avoid to the FACT that the developers themselves have said the versions will be the same. The game doesn’t look that good, developers always lie, it will have worse AA and lower quality effects. That is all a fantasy in your mind. Have I missed any? Thanks, but I’ll stick to the FACTS of what the people actually making the game have said.

    • Guest

      Wow, you’re even more delusional than i thought, you go on believing nonsense, it serves you right. Just another dumb naive, gullible fanboy.

    • Bozo Sapien

      No, I just prefer to listen to the developers making the game than some anonymous PS4 fanboy on a blog. You hold on to your fantasy and I’ll stick to the FACTS.

    • Guest

      The fact is, the game isn’t even running at 1080p on the PS4 but you think itll be 1080p on the X1, yeah, you don’t believe in facts you believing in fantasy.

    • Bozo Sapien

      You obviously just want to crap on the Xbox One regardless of what developers say. I get it. You’ll grow up some day.

    • Ian Williams

      copy n paste

    • Ian Williams

      Ps4 can’t handle it.

    • Fay_Z

      you’re right all ps4 owners will need is a magnifying glass to spot the difference, oh look we found wally!

    • Kiyashi

      Really? How about you get over your trash fanboism. They said it’s going to be the same and going for platform parity. I guess you don’t know what parity means. It means the same. Sorry you can’t use this one for your ignorant resolution gate fanboy war garbage on the comments sections or forums.

    • Porcu Peth

      the difference is huge. XB1 is a turd and this article doesn’t confirm anything about XB1 res and framerate of battlefield hardline.

    • Bozo Sapien

      It’s a good thing that developers don’t agree with you about Xbox One being a turd.

    • Porcu Peth

      clearly they agree or they wouldn’t be so hesitant to give information. Notice how they said 1080p/60fps on PS4 and only talked about XB1 when asked about it and didn’t even confirm that’s it’s going to also be 1080p/60fps. TRASH HARDWARE CONFIRMED

    • Bozo Sapien

      Developers don’t seem to be having a problem getting their games running on par with the PS4 versions since the SDK updates. I think you are going to be in for a major disappointment.

    • Porcu Peth

      haha you’re the going that’s going to be majorly disappointed

    • Bozo Sapien

      I won’t be disappointed at all since I own both consoles.

    • Porcu Peth

      then you’ll end up selling the xb1 cause it’s useless

    • Kreten

      Just as COD doesn’t talk about PS4 version, I wonder why? PS4 is ducktaped together with Laptop cooling from a company that has been on a road to bankruptcy. Laying off ppl, selling buildings, spinning divisions off and still losing over a billion each year. I wonder why is Sony copying everything from microsoft, gaming only console just announced tv stuff at e3 strange, gaming only console that only has indie games hahahaha. “Xbox watch halo” something you will never be able to do with or without the remote lol

    • Porcu Peth

      that is the saddest comment ever, you should be ashamed of yourself.

    • Kiyashi

      The only confirmation I’m seeing is that you’re a dumb ignorant fanboy. TRASH FANBOY CONFIRMED!

  • Flare Demon

    Downgrade confirmed. This game will not look as good as Battlefield 4. I’m calling it right now.

    • Dan

      Yeah, unless you’re a Battlefield dev, you can GTFO for now.

  • David

    Most people knew it was only a matter of time. First Destiny and now battlefield. Knew the disparity wouldn’t last

    • Guest

      PS4 will have better performing games for the entire generation as it has more powerful hardware, you can’t overcome a hardware gap with better drivers/SDKs. Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.

      There will never be parity.

    • David

      People have been saying that all generation but please show me one game with a jaw dropping difference? And some games even have better effects and are more stable on xbox. It can have a power advantage. Everyone knows that. But it isn’t showing in the games.

    • Guest

      It doesn’t matter what you consider “jaw dropping”, PS4′s hardware is more powerful.

      Nope, again Digital Foundry.

      PS4 version of Watch Dogs has higher shadow quality, higher resolution, less screen tearing, higher framerate, and far better ambient occlusion over Xbox.

      PS4 version of Wolfenstein has higher average resolution and higher shadow quality over Xbox.

      PS4 version of Thief has higher res, framerate, and mostly higher visual effects. It’s superior in almost every way aside from trilinear filtering being traded off for parallax occlusion mapping over Xbox.

      PS4 version of Trials Fusion has higher resolution and framerate over Xbox. Texture data is identical with texture streaming times dependent on hard drive speed.

    • David

      I don’t care about pixel counting. If the game doesn’t look any better than there is no reason to brag about it. But either way the resolutions will start to match pretty soon. So your argument doesn’t really matter

    • Guest

      If they’re the same resolution PS4 will have higher average framerate and better effects.

    • David

      Possibly. But maybe not. There have been games with better effects and more stable frame rates on Xbox. And vice versa. So we shall see. But clearly the xbox is getting better.

    • Guest

      Every major AAA multiplat console game runs better on PS4. Higher framerates, res, and/or better effects.

    • David

      Thief, battlefield, and ghosts were all said to be more stable on xbox. And thief and watch dogs were said to have better lighting effects

    • Guest

      You need to read Digital Foundry more.

      PS4 version of ghosts has higher resolution, framerate was patched.

      PS4 version of Watch Dogs has higher shadow quality, higher resolution, less screen tearing, higher framerate, and far better ambient occlusion over Xbox.

      PS4 version of Thief has higher res, framerate, and mostly higher visual effects. It’s superior in almost every way aside from trilinear filtering being traded off for parallax occlusion mapping over Xbox.

      PS4 version of BF4 has higher resolution, higher average framerate, and better effects over Xbox.

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      Digital Foundry has declared PC Victory for everything you mentioned including sgiwubf a low powered 750Ti GPU that costs less than $150 running Battlefield 4 at 1080P 60FPS on high settings and doing it better than both xbone and 900PS4

      Keep shilling, derp. I’ll be here to remind people of the truth after your lies :^)

    • Guest

      That’s a lot of lies and hatred over PS4′s stronger console hardware, ~3.5 million sales lead, large number of 1st party developers, more games, and more developer support. 8+ million and counting. Nothing you say will stop it, you are helpless. Keep lying and hating while everyone else ignores you.

      Mustard peasant spreading lies and hatred. You must have issues to literally hate a piece of plastic and people who like gaming on consoles.

      The real “god gaming race” owns both a good PC and consoles, and they find your lies, hatred, and ignorance disgraceful. Keep crying and squirting that mustard everywhere.

      Mustards don’t have “a point”, they just hate anyone who doesn’t have the time, money, or interest in building and maintaining a PC, and hate the fact that consoles offer a comparable gaming experience and exclusive games they can’t have. Unless they grow up and buy a console themselves, which isn’t that expensive compared to their imaginary quad SLI 4k PCs.

      The most hateful, demented mustards have laughable mid-range PCs with GTX 650 Tis that can’t even run the latest games at 1080p 60 fps very high/ultra settings. They’re mostly poor peasants who pirate all their games and hate anything they can’t download off a torrent.c

    • Joseph Lan

      Thief and Battlefield were both more stable on PS4, with higher average framerates during gameplay. Just watch the Digital Foundry performance videos on Youtube.

      “Better lighting” on Watch_Dogs and Thief? Who told you that? Misterxmedia? Xbox fanboys? Completely incorrect; again, read the Digital Foundry comparison articles.

      Ghosts had occasional framerate issues during the single player campaign; multiplayer is fairly consistent and fluid. The PS4 version was also running at 220% the number of pixels as the Xbox One version, so that’s somewhat understandable.

    • Kreten

      From people who “confirmed” KillZone as being 1080p60fps when it’s actually 900×1080

    • Joseph Lan

      Watch this video before spreading myths about how some games “have higher framerates on Xbox One.”

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M4gaVvHXNC8

    • Joseph Lan

      They look better if you have decent eyesight and a relatively modern HDTV.

    • Kreten

      You mean if you put them side by side use 5x magnifying glass and then in the end find out you thought that one of two 720p version was 1080p (COD IGN)

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      Digital Foundry also declared that all four of those games run better and look better on PC.

      But maybe you blanked that part out in your mind derp because you never want to face the truth.

    • Kreten

      Bull, just as same 720p clip of COD was better looking and “visibly higher res on ps4″

      Just as DF stated that Killzone is 1080p60fps LOL

      But in the end did you enjoy Killzone anymore because you thought and believed that it was 1080p60fps?

    • Joseph Lan

      What multiplatform games have “better effects” on Xbone? You’re making things up now.

    • Kreten

      Thief!

      Why doesn’t PS4 still have a single 1080p60fps exclusive? Even drive club being delayed a year and still 30fps

    • Dan

      Wah wah wah :) I am loving this! Just accept it and be happy. How does it improve your experience with this game if someone else plays it on a different console and gets a different experience to you?

      Clutching. at. straws.

    • Guest

      Yes, you’re having a wah wah at the reality that PS4′s hardware is more powerful.

    • Dan

      Hahaha, you are a riot!

      All I care about is, Battlefield Hardline & Destiny will be 1080p on my console of choice. XBOX

    • Guest

      If they’re the same resolution PS4 will have higher average framerate and better effects.,

    • Psionicinversion

      btw destiny will be similar on x1 cus itll be more CPU bound and both have $h1t CPU’s so cant push it to hard.

    • Kreten

      Ohh but haven’t you heard ps4 sdk doesn’t use all the threads in the cpu and DX12 does

    • Psionicinversion

      well seeing as the X1 wont be using DX12 till the end of next year at least there on par with each other CPU wise then

    • Forever_Flat_Out_Peasant

      PC will outclass it. Probably have extra effects on BF Hardline like Nvidia phys-x. Not on consoles. NEVER on consoles.

      What with weaker cpu, slower ram and worse sdk? Does Sony have money for cloud? They are laying ppl off and selling buildings. What makes you think that the’ll still be around in 5years?

    • Kreten

      What kind of hardware? Most of the hardware is weaker and only has slightly stronger gpu. Sales lead? How many more countries is ps4 available in? How about 43! Where are more games at? As all I see is everyone complaining of no games and xbox having larger aaa lineup, oh ur counting Joe Danger as more games? Lol!

      How about you learn the facts first before making up stupid bs? Take off your sony zombie hat and learn some actuall stuff how it works and what it actually does, software is more important than hardware always was always will be, that’s why games look worse at beginning than at end of cycle

    • Kreten

      If that’s the case then why do games look better at end of generation than at beginning? They still have same hardware and only thing that changes is drivers/sdk? Please provide the answer that makes sense.

    • Joseph Lan

      Sorry to disillusion you, but the disparity is permanent. That’s because hardware is permanent. You can’t make hardware appear out of thin air, and magically make up that performance gap, unless you release a brand new hardware SKU.

    • jacksjus

      No there will be a time when the X1 is capable of producing the same quality as the PS4 now. The question is where will the PS4 be by that time?

    • Kreten

      Hardware is permament but software is not and cloud is not, that being said they are both stuck with same hardware and xbox stuck with #1 software in the world (DirectX) and with expanding cloud for which sony has no money.

      If it’s all about hardware then why don’t devs have equaly good looking games at beginning of gen as they do at the end? Hardware never changed but tools do and they are as important.

      What you are saying just because one car has v8 engine and another v6, that v8 will always be faster despite v6 having more capable team to tune it and get better efficiency out of it (DirectX)

      Ps4 only has 6cus more that run at slower MHz and that’s the only advantage, but it has slower overall bandwidth, slower cpu, and no compression engines for very fast data transfer from DDR3 to esram etc.

    • R3S0LU710N_M34NS_N07H1NG

      Apparently someone never saw that cloud computing demo….

  • LarZen

    Am I the only one who reads this as the devs will not take advantage of the extra hardware in the PS4 because they are going for parity between the XBO and PS4 version?

    • Mitch

      Well, hopefully PS4 will have something like better AA or lighting.

    • Gene

      EA and MS are close friends now (money talks!)

    • MrSec84 .

      It depends if that what they’re actually doing, or if they simply mean they want the same res & frame rate on both consoles.
      There could still be a difference in effects, overall Image Quality & the frame rate could be actually locked on PS4.

      Perhaps it could be just like with wolfenstein, where it’s a full 1920X1080 on PS4, but it’s 1280X1080 or some other variation, while maintaining 60FPS on both consoles.

      IMO devs should be striving to make the most of both platforms, if one happens to have better hardware then it should be used IMO.

    • Joseph Lan

      Not necessarily. The resolution could be the same 1920x1080p on both platforms, but still take advantage of the PS4′s extra power with additional fidelity in other areas (shader complexity, lighting quality, texturing, and effects, etc.).

    • Kreten

      Or they will not take advantage of microsoft cloud to keep parity?

  • HisDivineOrder

    “Should be the same”

  • Malacath

    I’m glad to see that devs are finally getting to grips with the next gen hardware and we are now starting to see 1080p more on the x1.
    I just wish console fanboys would spend less time badmouthing the console they dont own and more time playing the games.
    All this fanboy console bashing is rather sad and immature.

  • Guest

    Sony paupers are still the most desperate losers at real life.

  • Guest

    ‘it should be the same.’ is not confirmation of anything, cuz if thats the case then UFc is 1080p since EA thinks it could be. Fanboys are dumb. And i thought that resoltuion didnt matter, now suddenly it matters again. And res isnt everything, now lets see how all else compares

  • THU31

    There is a cactus growing from my hand.

  • zainfazal3000

    Wonder just how they are able to pull that off. BF4 on Xbox One was only 720p. Even the PS4 version didn’t run at 1080p it was only 900p. So what’s going on? Have the developers finally figured out how to code the ES ram properly? Are they able to utilize more power from the GPU because it’s not reserved for Kinnect anymore? or is BF Hardline just a less demanding game? (smaller maps, lower player counts) How many games on Xbox One run at 1080p? Not that many, it’s getting to the point where we are thankful they can even get games to run above 720p.
