Dragon Age Inquisition PS4 Versus Xbox One: PS4 Has Better IQ And Performance

Our initial tests suggests that the PS4 versions holds itself well in intense scenarios.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition is Bioware’s most ambitious game till date. The game has been released across five platforms and that in itself is some heavy lifting by Bioware. We played a few hours of the game on both the PS4 and Xbox One and  we are pleased to report that except a few minor issues on the latter, the performance on both the versions is pretty much identical.

It’s already a well known fact that the game runs at 1080p on the PlayStation 4 and 900p on the Xbox One. This immediately gives rise to a superior image quality on the PlayStation 4. Having said that only keen eyes will notice the difference. During our play through, the PlayStation 4 version was very smooth with no lag in frame rate during the initial battles. The Xbox One version, although keeps it steady on most occasions does lag a bit when the action gets heavy. It’s not a show stopper and most users won’t even notice it.

On the technology front, the character models and the environments are the biggest gain on the PS4 and Xbox One. The Frostbite delivers a decent upgrade to the visuals of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. The anti-aliasing and global illumination seems to be similar across the board and the shadow maps have been beautifully rendered. We also found out that there is the odd jitter when custcenes kick in, due to which the frame rate suffers on both the versions. An explanation for this was given by Bioware’s Allan Schumacher on the official forum and it won’t be patched in the immediate future:

“You’re not controlling the characters (especially not in spinning around in circles) in conversations either.  At least, the “full conversations’ that are cinematic.  The conversations that you still have player control over won’t do this.  At least they shouldn’t, because the cinematic system isn’t taking control. ”

“This is done mostly because the animation system can behave oddly for complex animations if something happens that causes them to be updated asynchronously.  So we synched the two during cinematics to work around this issue.  Fixing the problem would be a lot of work, and likely won’t be patched (definitely not day one) unless other, more serious issues end up manifesting as a result of this system.”

Our initial tests suggest that PS4 version is in the lead but there is a lot of to explore in Dragon Age Inquisition and we will make sure to keep you updated on our final verdict. We will also like to add that our final verdicts on Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Grand Theft Auto 5 will be published soon. We understand that they have been delayed but we have been bombarded with a lot of game releases in the past few days.

In the mean time check out some comparison shots between the PS4 and Xbox One versions. On the left we have Xbox One version and on the right we have the PS4 version. Below the screenshot you will be find a video comparison in slow motion between the two.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • Some youtube video showed this game running at 60fps on PS4 is that true or false?

    • Иван Мордор

      false of course..

    • corvusmd

      The game is 30fps…the you tube vid may be 60

    • Psionicinversion

      The games do not run at 60fps…. the PS4 cant even run FC4 at 60fps which is laughable. the youtube vid may say 1080p60 but its not

  • kftgr

    Weird that in the first pic (Image110.png), the right (PS4) side has a much more jagged doorway.

    • corvusmd

      Yeah, there isn’t much difference in them at all, but the only picture where I think the one on the right looks better is the last one.

  • vishmarx

    that lighting diference …holy crap

    • corvusmd

      I know…there isn’t much difference at all, but I wonder if by going 900p X1 was able to better optimize the lighting….if that was what did it, I say keep doing it.

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

    Dont care, still getting this on my XB1. PS4 is for exclusives only

    • corvusmd

      I’m the same exact way. I love all the systems, but My X1 is the one that’s on all day every day….and since there is no need to have both XBL and PS+….I chose the better and do all my online gaming on XBL…and with this gen being online centric for the most part…all my multiplats go X1. It also just so happens to workout because the exclusives on PS4 that I care about are all known for their offline play.

    • Mario Porfírio Souza

      PS+ is so much better than XBL

    • d0x360

      Is it? I download at 65mbps from Xbox live. The max i get from psn is about 8mbps. Xbox live has free dedicated servers for all games. Xbox live works most of the time. So how is + better?

    • Barry Harden

      You’re a lying sack of crap. XBL has been having issues even suffering an outage yesterday.

      Don’t believe me? Read about here:
      http://n4g.com/news/clickout/1623987

      As for “free” dedicated servers you’re a joke. Most companies don’t even use it as it’s not free. All the big publishers use their own dedicated servers.

    • Starman

      LOL , You’re delusional …..

    • Barry Harden

      You’re a joke.

    • Posting articles from n4g really doesn’t validates facts. When Xbox live has issues. Its only a small number of people at once not the whole online network like psn. Stop believing every fanboy article you read. I haven’t had issues for weeks on my end and whenever it does its resolved right away not hours or days later. They want you to believe that so you won’t regret that you’re actually praising an inferior network on PlayStation. Xbox doesn’t crashed because too many people are downloading a demo.

    • Malacath

      N4G is not a reliable source for information.

    • Barry Harden

      N4G doesn’t write the articles. It gathers and provides links to other sites with the information.

    • Malacath

      Actually xbox live doesn’t have free dedicated servers for all games.
      Only exclusive games like titanfall and forza seem to use them. 3rd party games like COD tend to use the same lag prone p2p system as the ps4. I know this because I own both consoles.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

    • WellWisher

      PS exclusives have been pretty bad though so far. I’ll wait for Uncharted to go PS again.

    • tplarkin7

      Uncharted is not a great series. The gameplay is old-school and the game is almost on rails. I played all 3 games back-to-back recently to see what the fuss was about. It’s way overhyped. Enjoyable, but not great.

    • 54nakaD

      If it’s the first time “recently” then yes the games are a few years old. But the next one will be epic. The LoU is better.

    • 54nakaD

      Could say the same for xb1 exclusives but good thing Bloodborne, the Order, Planetside 2 are all coming out early next year!

    • Starman

      Really ? It’s so bad in the playstation nation , you guys don’t even know what a real/great game is anymore.

    • 54nakaD

      Last great game for Xbox was Halo 3. 4 was just…meh. Sony has had the LoU, Uncharted, GOW, GT6. Btw Bloodborne will be epic as well. Xbos never had an exclusive like that.

    • Psionicinversion

      Bloodborne well pends if you liek that game, The Order will be on rails, Uncharted whereas the story maybe good that will be on rails to and the teaser trailer you saw, if you think the game is going look like that your deluding yourself. if it was on PC it would have a chance but not on the PS4

    • 54nakaD

      I loved the Dark Souls games, so yes it will be great. What the heck is “on the rails”? You must be from the UK. Well anyways, as for the Order, you can’t judge a game before it has even come out. As for Uncharted, you are in the minority, because the majority of people loved the game…wait…your an xbox/pc lover. You probably never played it. Also you are delusional if you think Uncharted will not look like the trailers. 1.No xbox to hold it back. 2. Naughty dog made the Uncharted and LoU games look incredible on ps3.

    • Psionicinversion

      Hey if your saying uncharted will look like the trailer that was made by one person and had no level info loaded up no world physics AI dynamic lighting and everything else that makes up a game at 60fps I’ll keep hold of my PS4 BUT I guarantee you now it won’t look like that

    • 54nakaD

      Well tou will be eating your “guarantee” because if anyone can pull it off, it’s Naughty Dog. They have been working on this game since 3 was finished. So no, it was not “made by one person”. One person might have been in control of how it was put together.
      As for your guarantee, “Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will.”

    • Psionicinversion

      They probably though they’d have more power to work with and this is all they’ve got. Feel sorry for them

    • 54nakaD

      Don’t feel sorry. Just hope it will be that good. Just remember that because they had more time to work with ps4 than anyone and as we know with ps3, figuring out the architecture of the machine and how to better optimize it is the key. That’s why ps3 games looked so much better near the end. Plus look at MGS4. That game still stands out, graphically, compared to most last gen games. They only had to work with one machine and utilize the ps3 at its full potential even in the early stages. Ps4 is easier to code for than ps3 so it is not just possible but inevitable. The problem with PC is that devs are having to make one game for a multitude of PCs, while ps4 is one machine to work with. So that is the reason ps4 and PC multiplats look similar.

    • Psionicinversion

      its not because they look similar its because to have little things that make the game stand out like more lights, better shadows, better reflections better AI better tessellation all require more and more power to power the little things that make it different. also ultra textures when they are ultra are far superior to high anyway.

    • demderp

      PS4 has plenty of good games with more on the way. Check listwar or metacritic. All 3 consoles have good games worth playing, it depends on the consumer’s interest.

      2013-2014 exclusives: Killzone: Shadowfall, Knack, Resogun, Infamous: Second Son and First Light, MLB: The Show 14, The Last of Us Remastered, Samurai Warriors 4, Guilty Gear Xrd, Driveclub, LittleBigPlanet 3, Natural Doctrine, and many more critically acclaimed digital games. Final Fantasy XIV and Injustice are on PS4 but not Xbox.

      2015 exclusives: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Rime, Let it Die, Deep Down, Alienation, Helldivers, Wild, The Tomorrow Children, more.

    • demderp
    • Tom Kirk

      I agree……I love the always on always connected Xbox one

  • Another save the PlayStation article.

    • corvusmd

      They are all great systems, but it does seem like the fanboys of the PS variety are clutching onto these articles like the last straw….it’s kinda sad really. Instead of bragging about having better games its “see if you freezeframe here, and look at this angle….it’s clearer on this version” or “if you go to this corner of the map and look at the ground, there is more grass” It’s like people have lost the enjoyment of gaming, and it’s all political now. Either way…I had the option for either system, and 5 days head start was MUCH more important to me than any graphical difference seen here. (esp because I ended up thinking the X1 version actually looked better anyway before reading which was which)

    • I couldn’t have said it any better. I was going to get both consoles at the beginning of this generation until I got on the internet for information about both. The PS fanboys really changed my mind about joining their community. Maybe things will change in the future I’m hoping for the sake of all gamers. Its one of the best times to be a gamer and also the worst.

    • corvusmd

      Yeah, it’s sad. The systems themselves are all great, true the X1 appeals to me the most, but if someone gives me a LOGICAL reason as to why they prefer another over the X1, I take NO issue with it, I understand….but usually it’s just “Xbox sucks” “Xbox is underpowered 720p machine” blah blah…it’s like they have just eaten up marketing/slander gimmicks SOOOOO much that they no longer are in touch with reality…and it’s hard to take them seriously….either way it’s a shame, I love the PS4 itself, but her fanboys are pushing me away from wanting to be associated with that crowd at all….her fanboys (not fans) do NOT represent what gamers are about, and don’t even realize they are doing more to hurt PS4 than help it.

    • Guest

      Actually I disagree, both systems are not great and are rather mediocre to letdowns really. And the X1 is very underpowered and even til day has to many sub 1080p games. Not that the PS4 is much better, but at least its better. And as for fanboys, I think the X fanboys are far worst. Much bigger a-holes. Both are the same, except the X1 fanboys are in far more denial and are full of s h*t and say more obnoxious s h*t. And you say that PS4 fanboys are doing more to hurt it than heklp it, yet it continues to outsell the X1 (see just another example of the delusion and denial in fanboys like you).

    • I rest my case.

    • corvusmd

      Exactly….someone stole his last piece of candy.

    • Mike

      I don’t like Xbox exclusives. The only games I play online are co-op, not competitive.

    • Mike

      The controller too. I can’t stand the offset analog sticks, the Xbox one controller seems small now too. I remember the first Xbox controllers were huge. I like the new dualshock4 alot, can’t stand the dualshock3 now. The controller could be a little bigger yet.

    • d0x360

      So then…you should like them cause every xbox exclusive has coop. Who you think started that coop trend lol

    • Mike

      Not Microsoft. I remember playing Double Dragon coop way before Xbox existed.

    • d0x360

      Modern online console coop… Jesus Christ dude. If you go back far enough every “original’ feature in a game has been done before.

      Whatever then. The original point stands. Pretty much every exclusive Xbox title ever since the launch of Xbox live in 2001 has been coop. So if coop is your thing and you aren’t on an Xbox you are doing it wrong.

    • Mike

      Because they have coop doesn’t make them good. I said I play co-op when online usually, destiny is my favorite right now, it’s better on ps4. Uncharted series is my favorite. There are no games as good as those on Xbox in my opinion

    • Failz

      Destiny is better on PS4? If you like having more downtimes with PSN. X1 has tge superior online infrastructure, Destiny has less problems and looks the same on X1 plus X1 controller is better for FPS games sincr its features relate more to the genres like rumble triggers. I say X1 is the better version hands down.

    • Mike

      And I say you are completely wrong, I have only had destiny down once when I wanted to play. The Xbox controller sucks to me also. It’s uncomfortable. I have more weapons to collect and an extra strike.

    • Andy Stephenson

      Haha this guy… I think you’re confused buddy. You have been able to do this on pc for almoSt twenty years

    • The Xbox supports eight controllers at once. Its basically made for co op on and offline.

    • Mike

      I still don’t like the controller. I play co-op online. No one to play at home with unless my brother is over. Play knack with my kids once in a blue moon when they beg enough

    • Andy Stephenson

      Haha even the supposedly adult games in Xbox are childish like halo and that awefull cheesy gears.. People who play sonys machine have been on playstation since the 90s. Even the interface on the Xbox is childish

    • Andy Stephenson

      Actually It was designed never to be offline

    • Guest

      Same thing with me, I was gonna buy a X1 til I started hearing and seeing how the MS fanboys are, then I was like, screw that, I want nothing to do with those d-bags. Im sorry, but you people are messed up and delusional and made me not wanna buy it. How can so many of you deny the facts and be so d ouche? Also, why would I want to pay more (when it first came out) for a system that is obviously inferior. Especially when I could care less about stupid s h*t like Kinect and TV, TV, TV and fail to see how Live is so much better, (so therefore do not want to pay more for it).Its still behind in terms of performance (just look at this game) and has less games.

    • corvusmd

      You seem WAYYYY to emotional about this. It doesn’t seem like you are approaching this with any sort of logic. It’s like I murdered your family or something. Clearly whatever is bothering you isn’t about videogames, you’re just using this as a tool to vent frustrations. Chill out, enjoy gaming.

    • Guest

      Says the guy who is constantly whining and crying about it. Are you ok? Nice try though, its what you do, is deflect and project. You’re the one that needs to chill out and just enjoy your games, rather be on here all day long, every day on every site, crying about how people are acting, cuz they don’t sweat your beloved X1. Good try though 😉

    • corvusmd

      ….I’m not the one here whining and crying about it.

      I will continue to love my X1, PS4 and Wii U….thanks I guess.

    • Guest

      That’s polygamy brother

    • corvusmd

      The more the merrier

    • corvusmd

      Being a “better looking” game does not automatically make it the “best version” of the game. You are picking ONE of the MANY MANY MANY aspects that make a game great…however, you’re ONLY looking at the one that suits your opinion. Graphical differences have always been minor, true they typically go in PS4 favor, but have yet to make a real difference in the final product. So if I like the X1 controller better, the fact that I can play it 5 days eariler (like this one) and then keep my progress into the final game, or I like the UI/multi-tasking of the X1 better, or if the game has an online component to it…..don’t ALL of those things trump any minor res difference here?

      What if, like in this case, bumping the res comes with a cost and the lighting ends up looking better on X1…or in some cases, X1 keeps a better FPS…wouldn’t that be more important as well?

    • Guest

      You liking the controller better or it coming out 5 days earlier or the systems UI doesn’t make it better. Cuz what if I thought that the 360 controller and UI was better, would that make the 360 version better? You are desperately grasping at straws. This is how bad you’ve deluded yourself. You actually believe all the excuses and reasons you’ve giving yourself. End of the day, the fact is the PS4 version is the better one, period. Now stop trying to twist the facts. It’ll make your life better. Its worst to try and fight reality.

    • corvusmd

      So if my reasons for why I prefer a game don’t count….why does yours? Especially since yours is so negligible that it has to be debated so often and heatedly as to if it even exists at all…..

    • corvusmd

      Keep in mind I have all the systems and see them all first hand…I have a firm grasp on the reality of the situation….and the more you write, the more it reinforces my statement about ignorant fanboys making me want to disassociate myself from their crowd.

    • Shawn

      Dude both communties have massive annoying fanboys, To make it seem as if XLive more mature holds no validation. All this sympathy for the Xbox One need to stop, because when the PS3 launched, Xbox fanboys attack it and the PSN relentlessly. Now it’s awww the Xbox One , crap on every damn article I see, when Xbox One fanboys kicked it off last gen lol.

    • Last Gen. I just played games. I had no idea what a fanboy was let alone even heard of one at that point. You’ve been doing this since last Gen? Wow. So you are definitely a fanboy then.

    • Guest

      But by having the better looking and running version of the game, they do have the better game/s. Its been the case for like a 100 multiplats already. You x bots are in some serious denial. Its serious! You look stupid trying to downplay one version looking better than the other.

    • Shawn

      I swear people seem to forget how Xbox fanboys were bashing the h.ll out of the PS3 Lmao. I remember every bit of now I don’t feel sympathy for the Xbox One nor it’s fans and yes I own both.

    • bardock5151

      The PS3 gave everybody more ammunition to be used against it. These current gen consoles actually require a freeze frame to pick difference’s for the most part and even then it’s either non existent or minuscule.

    • Shawn

      So that made it cool for the Xbox fanboys to bash it LMFAO.

    • Andy Stephenson

      Yeah but you can’t bad mouth an American company that markets a Korean Xbox 😉

    • corvusmd

      This is also true…I didn’t really visit gaming sites then, but having both consoles….you could tell immediately the difference between 360 and PS3….not so much with the new consoles. I remember getting Black Ops for both PS3 and 360 so that I could play with my work friends on PS3. It was shocking how fuzzy and non-defined it was on PS3 compared to 360….I actually thought something was wrong with my PS3 for a bit.

    • corvusmd

      I wasn’t on gaming boards then….I didn’t start visiting gaming sites like this until right before X1 and PS4 dropped. I like knowing all the news quicker….but honestly it’s made me lose faith in the gamer community….how many people make decisions with no logic and just pure bias, uninformed emotions.

      It’s all like joining an online gang….just to team up and pick on “the little guy” I gues last gen it was PS3 and this gen it’s X1…EITHER WAY it’s retarded. Like a bunch of pathetic little wimps that can’t make a difference in real life, so behind the wall of the internet they band together to pick on the minority trying to beat them down with false logic, name calling, and trolling. It’ pathetic…and spoiled gamers make me fear for the future of gaming. I’ve been playing for 25+ years and having the best time now I ever have….and spoiled brats are going to ruin it. Maybe we should make a law that all gamers have to spend their first year with an NES.

    • tplarkin7

      I have PS4 and X1. PS4 is severely lacking in games (unless you only play multi-plats).

    • Shawn

      Sure you do , I have both nether one pumping 1st patry Exclusives I’m tired of the Xbox One has a Million Exclusives bs. Most them are playable across the entire MS platform so spare me the Exclusives talk.

    • tplarkin7

      X1 is doing better in exclusives, but it’s not that great. Dead Rising 3 was the only true standout exclusive. The other games were nice efforts, but missed the mark. PS4 has MGS:GZ, but it’s too short (as good as it was). Infamous did not appeal to me, at all.

    • dfbgdsdfbdzdfdzfdzzdgbdfzvdzvb

      Forza Horizon 2 is a standout game, its the most promising racing game I’ve played in a long time and PG did a great job showcasing the Xbox One with it… I haven’t played Sunset Overdrive but that’s supposed to be good and i give Insomniac credit for having the balls to try something new there… Halo MCC doesn’t concern me but again thats a huge release for some… The Xbox One has had a good time of exclusives this past 2 months too, unfortunately for shared third party titles it usually gets abused for being the weaker console

      What are ps fanboys clutching onto? It’s not like this is the Dreamcast. Ps4 is outselling xb1 globally by a count of 2 to 1.

    • Andy Stephenson

      Hey! The dreamcast was beautiful.

    • 54nakaD

      I agree but it flopped in sales compared to ps2 and it lost so much money.

    • Andy Stephenson

      It was a sad time

    • Daniel evans

      Are you a little blind? In what world is the left pictures better than the right pictures, i can see clearly enough. Are you one of those people that thinks crushed blacks make for a better picture or something?

    • someguy-_-

      Any “fanboy” on either side are horrible. Xbone and ps fanboys are just crude fan boys seem to spam lies. They are blind to the truth for any system but their own. Both really need to keep their opinion to themselves. Only people worthy of hearing comments from are people that own all systems and comment good and bad on all of them, these people are called gamers. I fully admit that since I like them both, I like to play devil’s advocate with these fan boys. If you hunt the comments for these post you see me playing both sides LOL.

    • Andy Stephenson

      Aye they dust do it because it’s hilarious watchin the supper over confident Xbox community squirm.

    • Guest

      Another deny the truth statement by a hateful fanboy.

    • 54nakaD

      Yeah because ps4 needs saving after selling almost 13 million consoles, the fastest in history after a year.

    • And here is the infamous sales comment. You know I’m glad that I have a product where the company producing it announces more games than sales statements.

    • 54nakaD

      Im not sure what your getting at but MS is too afraid to release numbers. Last I remember the next few AAA exclusives are all going to be on PlayStation only. Bloodborne, the Order, planetside2, etc. I don’t think MS has another good exclusive until Quantum break and thats not til like the end of next summer. Good luck waiting 🙂

    • demderp

      PS4 has 64 more released games and far more announced and upcoming games. You are wrong as usual.

    • Andy Stephenson

      We’ll the Xbox department has lost 500 million so far this gen and you know what happens to departments at MS that don’t make money? They conveniently disappear. I’d worry more about that kid

  • corvusmd

    HAHAHAHA …so I didn’t read the article…just went straight to the pictures…thought PS4 was on the left and X1 on the right. I was like “there are tiny differences, but the PS4 version (thinking it was on the left) doesn’t look THAT much better”

    Oooops… I guess this is only proving that 1080p vs 900p is ONCE AGAIN a stupid argument. HAHAHAHA….I can’t stop laughing now. Either way the game looks great, you can’t tell which is which…I’ve been playing it on X1 cause of the 5 day early trial…and I just wanted to keep my same character instead of starting over….I don’t know what the FPS details are, but it’s NEVER gotten even remotely sluggish for me on X1…..so just play the game it’s a great game, and it appears that once again there are no graphical differences worth trying to brag about either way. Happy gaming.

    • Guest

      HAHAHAHA and you’ve just proved once again, what a insecure little salty fanboy you are. You care way to much about this stuff, and you and that other phony clown DLConspiracy are all over the place doing y’all usual defending, deflecting and downplaying just to defend your way to cherished X1.
      First of all, if you were to see both games in real life, you would definitely be able to tell a difference in res, and second these are 2 images in one pic, thereby halfing the res, even though the pictures are 1080p. So that is going to cut into the res difference, and they are also compressed and the X1’s 900p image is also upscaled. All factors making harder to see the difference between 1080p and 900p. But either way, the X1 version is inferior, period! Its running at a lower res and and worst framerate. Now stop being such a insecure little f *ck and follow your own advice and just enjoy your game. And stop denying the truth,

      Almost every multi plat on Xbox one looks like plastic figurines. That bugs me. Some may think it looks better because it’s brighter but it’s not how it’s supposed to look if you know anything about HD

    • corvusmd

      They look identical here….

    • Failz

      They both look plastic compared to the PC versions. If only you knew what its suppose to look like.

    • Mike

      I could have a high end gaming rig if I wanted one. I don’t care for gaming on pc though.

    • Midori Inaba

      You know what you remind me of? When PS3 owners couldn’t accept 360 multiplats looked better.

    • corvusmd

      Ok. Good thing I bought them all.

  • corvusmd

    Well, you’re a sony fanboy….

    The reason I’m not saying anything to Xbox fanboys is because they aren’t being belligerent douchebags like yourself. People on both sides are jerks, but here no one on the X1 side was picking a fight….YOU were.

    • Guest

      Are you crazy? They are a million times worst. And the only reason why you don’t think so is because you are one of them. And the only reason why you don’t like me is because im calling you out on your stupid hypocritical s h*t. And me a Sony fanboy! Ha! try again. I think the PS4 is a weak POS (just not as weak as the X1) too. So put that in your MS pipe and smoke it. And you’re the belligerent manchild always crying on these boards. Not me.

  • Egla

    You will definitely notice when you actually have 900P upscaled to 1080p on a TV screen.

    • bardock5151

      If you’re told about it, even then not really. 720p to 1080p yes, that is noticeable.

    • corvusmd

      Only after you read an article telling you which it is….and even then, you’ll need to know which version you’re looking at.

  • d0x360

    Makes no difference now. Ill buy every ea game on Xbox due to ea access. Getting 10% off every game and any dlc plus playing everything 5 days early is enough added value for me

    • Malacath

      Same here. I own both consoles and even if the ps4 version does have slightly better graphics I will get it on xbox one due to EA access 5 days early trial as well as the 10% discount.
      The only time I wont is if the ps4 version gets exclusive extras.

  • Head Blackman

    it’s sad when a person needs to be told what to think! sony fans look for a site to compare and tell them what to see because they can’t actually see it with their own eyes. and knowing what ps4 specs say on paper, their mind is already geared up to think that 1080p is the standard and cause it to look better for the ps4 when that’s clearly not the case. im still waiting to see this so called 40 to 50% power over the x1. im still waiting to see this so called greatness. im still waiting to see this so called gap start to close. (not going anywhere for a while?) :-/

  • Lennox

    I don’t understand these new gamers. How could anyone be mad at the image quality of either version. Both look great.

  • justerthought

    Well I guess this shoots down all the MS fanboys that keep falling back on the claim that the gameplay is the most important and that frame rate rules over resolution.

    Here we are with a game that has higher resolution on the PS4, and a smoother frame rate and better gameplay via superior AI. There is no argument. Fanboys will just have to bury your heads in the sand and pretend it is not happening.

    The rest of us can live in the reality.

    • Psionicinversion

      Better frame rate?? 30fps is pathetic as it stands nothing to shout about

  • Sharp021

    Oh my god, I thought most o the pictures were on the ps4 side (even thought both incidental to human eye during game but then i watch the video shows i was mixing between x1 and ps4. means the graphic comparisson is stupid, wrong unnecessary and made by and for Fanboys. it looks the same for god sake.

    I’ll be getting it for PC. Looks like the Xbox One version is able to use more filtering the detail looks sharper in the bricks and such. Which, it makes sense. If you stuck a 7790 GPU in a PC, you couldn’t run it at 1080p and high settings, with anti-aliasing and all that post processing. Heck, even with AA and post processing off, you’d struggle to reach 30-35fps. Dropping the resolution down to 1600×900 is the sweet spot for that quality of GPU, as now you have a ton left over for AA and filtering…and if you still didn’t elect to use those features, you could put the extra resource in maybe upping the shadow, lighting and texture detail and at the end of the day, you’d be hard pressed to see the difference between 900p and 1080p…depending on your display. You’d see it in landscape, though, distant trees/ grass would appear more jagged.

    Inversely, the PS4 uses a 7870 equivalent GPu, though, I think right now it is capped down as a 7850, as they are not using the spare GPGPU designated CU’s. On this chip, you can run games more easily at 1080p and achieve higher frame rate, than a 7790 and have a little more left over for post processing/ AA, if both GPU’s were competing for 1080p,, but should that 7790 be dropped to 900p, it becomes a competing GPU, feature for feature…plus the 7790 suddenly has left more over resource to up IQ.

    The 7870 is a good GPU, but can’t perform miracles if you’re striving for 1080p picture. The question is, just how much are you missing out on, in the console versions? To have a similar experience as PC, you have to have both consoles running at 720p or lower, to have enough to dump into added water effects, light source counts, ambient occlusion, extra shadow detail and interactive vegetation…meaning, when you walk through grass, you can see it move at your touch.

  • Psionicinversion

    hahahah theres no difference. Wheres ya power gone, wheres your power gone…. you seen the x1 vs PS4 on GTA5 DF said they look pretty much the same except the PS4 version has more grass!!!

    Lmao that extra 0.53 TFLOPs of power means more rendered grass… i couldnt stop laughing

    • whateverblah

      How many xbox fans are this moronic? I wonder.

    • Andy Stephenson

      They have an inferiority complex. It’s understandable

  • JoeDaniel

    Most ambitious game “to date”, not till date…till isn’t a word either… All due respect, good article but quite a few places this article needs editing!

  • eplugplay

    I think every systems have annoying fan boys. I love PC gaming and I build one for myself every few years as well as owning a (PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, probably will pick up an Xbox One during black friday) but to me the PC fan boys are the most annoying and smug. I understand the Xbox vs the PlayStation rivalry but the PC gamers always comes in to shoot both down as the superior system. Who cares?? If the system has the titles that you want to play then get it. They are all very close in performance and sometimes graphics alone doesn’t dictate the best experience for a game. I got all the systems because there are good exclusives for every system and I don’t want to be limited in my selections.

  • such.wow

    Stop using screenshots captured from a YouTube video, they look like doge crap.

  • Suv

    Wow a digital foundry author just called this article crap. Xbox version is 30fps locked While the PS4 version suffers drops

  • Ash

    Digital foundry is saying Xb1 has better performance.
