Fallout 4: PS4 Version Performance Will Please Fans, PC Will Have Other Data Than The Installer

More information on Fallout 4 PC revealed by Pete Hines.

fallout 4 explosion

As we get all the more closer to the release of Fallout 4, it appears that Bethesda is making sure people understand just how good the game is going to look and feel when they get their hands on it. When it comes to a bit of housecleaning, Pete Hines was working overtime on Twitter making people knew that on the PS4, the game is going to have a solid 30 FPS and even added that he thinks people will be pleased.

When it comes to the PC version, he said there will indeed be a game disc, if people want to go that route. He further clarified that there will be other data on this disc besides the installer. He was also asked why the the game was put on a DVD copy as opposed to a Blu-Ray disc but he said the disc simply didn’t have enough of an install base to warrant that move. So for those who were expected a situation similar to Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, rest easy.

Hines wasn’t just having conversations about what kind of info is going to be on the game disc though. He was also asked about why the company set the release date in November, as opposed to a date like October 23. Hines responded they set the date they did because they wanted to give the development team as much time as possible to have it finished. That of course, means there will likely be a decent amount of content added with the inevitable launch day patch. Fallout 4 gets it’s official release on the PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 10, 2015.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • XbotMK1

    I hope the performance pleases everyone and quest breaking bugs are kept to a minimum.

  • Dirkster_Dude

    A game with more than 400 hours worth of quests and things to do will definitely have bugs. They will never find all of them even after the release of the game even if they have years to find them. The best you can really hope for is no game breaking story bugs.

    • A Glass of Water

      Bethesda has been working on polishing the game for the past 5/6 months. So heres hoping that FO4 is largely bug free.

    • TweekTweakXD .

      There is definitly going to be some bugs but at one time bethesdra games were the only games with bugs now EVERY game has bugs at launch and sometimes forever, lol.

      I’m used to bugs as long as they are not game breaking.

    • Senna4ever

      “but at one time bethesdra games were the only games with bugs”

      No they were not. Not at all.

    • J_Parx

      They had the most obvious and prevalent bugs.

    • TweekTweakXD .

      The nes, snes, ps1 and ps2 featured almost all bug free games.

      Sure, there were bugs but you would rarely see a game with any actually hit a shelf. The reason why you didn’t see bugs was because these system couldn’t be patched by the masses. Only the ps2 had a network adapter and very few people bought it. Even the beginning of the PS3 generation was pretty good but slowly it became obvious that bugs were starting to be pushed through as games were not getting poor reviews for bugs anymore and the first couple weeks after a release nowadays is more of a massive beta to get all the bugs out of games.

      Bethesdra games always had bugs because of the sheer size and difficulty to test the games but now I finding every game has bugs at launch. Why? Because it’s easier to test them through a massive amount of people.

    • Detonate

      No they have bugs, because there is just way too many combinations of systems available to test in house. Different OS’s, gpu’s, cpu’s, controllers, etc. Most patches are nothing more than compatibility issues.

    • TweekTweakXD .

      Games have been coming out on more than 1 platform for years. Do actually think a game can succeed with a game breaking bug when there is no way to patch it?

      Developers are still using PC gamers to beta patches due to how easy it is to patch a game through services like steam. Compatibility issues are also different then bugs and the majority of times are solved through Nvidia and AMD. That’s why it’s important to upgrade your drivers when you buy a game. I have numerous PCs and they almost all run games the same because they have high enough specs. If they run into issues I can almost guarantee all the PCs with nvidia GPUs or AMD gpus will suffer from the same issues.

      Bugs however are shared among both consoles and PCs and are not due to comparability issues. Games are just getting larger and it’s easier to fix them with millions of people playing the game over a small group of testers.

    • “The NES, SNES, PS1, and PS2 featured almost all bug-free games.” Are you kidding me?

    • A guy

      No matter what company, no matter what game, it’s bound to have bugs. However 5 months to polish a finished game seems to me that this game may be relatively bug free 😀

    • Senna4ever

      5 months is almost no time when it comes to game development.
      Especially when the game being developed is all new built from the ground up on a new generation of systems.

    • A guy

      You do realize the game is completely done, and 5 months, while short, is plenty of time to polish a game for bugs, right?

    • Fenrisfil

      I would be shocked if there was any game breaking main quest bugs. Quest breaking bugs on minor side quests – maybe. Glitch bugs on random non-quest events that are so rare to come across no one has seen it yet in play testing – entirely possible. But main quest game breakers? Nah. No way.

    • Dirkster_Dude

      Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Skyrim, and Elder Scrolls all had story game breaking bugs. They were eventually fixed, but the bugs were there when I played those games. Didn’t prevent me from finishing the stories, but that was only because I could go a different direction and complete the story that way, but they weren’t my first choices.

    • Detonate

      Better call the whaaaabulance.

    • Dirkster_Dude

      I have no idea what your comment even means.

    • Fenrisfil

      I think we have very different definitions of “game breaking bugs”.

      Personally I played all those games and had no problem completing the game. There were bugs, but none broke my game. Admittedly I came to FO3 late, but had no game breaking issues. I ploughed my way obsessively through Skyrim and New Vegas without a single issue and had those on the day of release.

      Also Elder Scrolls is not a game, it is a series of games, none of which are without a sub title, so you need to be more specific there. If you meant Oblivion, then I was late to that game too, so if there were game breaking bugs, I missed them.

    • Dirkster_Dude

      At the time I played all those games 1 of the main story arcs for those different decision trees stopped me because I couldn’t complete the quest or mission due to the glitch or bug. I had to reload and replay 5-10 hours worth of game play in some cases and the bug didn’t appear again. In other cases it came up continuously so I couldn’t choose that path and had to take a different one. As for Elder Scrolls I do indeed mean Oblivion. The fact that you didn’t come up with any problems means nothing because I did have game breaking bugs. I still completed most or all the games, but in some cases I had to wait for patches. I still liked all the games I mentioned, but they had bugs that in any other genre I would have simply returned the used game for money.

    • Fenrisfil

      Well, experiences differ I guess. But then I’ve never played any game that I felt was so bugged I would have returned it. Well unless you count ET, but back in those days it was hard to tell the difference between bugs and game design anyway.

    • Joe Blow

      So you’re a “toilet is half-empty” kind of guy aint ya?

    • Dirkster_Dude

      Not sure what your comment is supposed to mean. Maybe you can explain it to everybody?

    • Joe Blow

      toilet/glass of water.

      Come on, really?

    • Dirkster_Dude

      Then you have read way too much into my comments

    • Joe Blow

      sigh. some here get it, you obviously don’t. please don’t infer more into it then was meant, ffs.

    • Dirkster_Dude

      It’s not my job to understand you when you comment on something I posted. I also consider the toilet and glass of water being half full 2 completely different things because for obvious reasons I would never drink out of a toilet.

    • I’d say more of a realist. In the face of the oft-relentless marketing and expectation that accompanies a game release of this magnitude, a sobering slap is sometimes needed.

    • Abbie Hoffman

      As much as I love the Fallout series, NO! There is never a excuse for a buggy game! Before you sale a product you should make sure it functions as it should or else the customer does not get what they paid for! It’s people like you that blindly accept everything that is to blame for this! And also why they can now get away with this crap! Nobody has a spine anymore!

    • Dirkster_Dude

      You say that like it’s size is similar in content and exploration possibilities is like the recent Rise of Tomb Raider. It has a far greater amount. Do I wish all the bugs were fixed? Yes. Do I expect a game this large to come without bugs? No. At what point does self interest and the demand of economics meet to release a game that might never be completely fixed?

  • mark_parch

    why did he only mention ps4 is it not solid 30fps on xbox one?

    • Stereotypical_White_Fella

      Their games have always been crap on Playstation, so they wanna make it clear it’s not a problem now.

    • wesley hollis

      “Always been crap on PlayStation” the ps3 uses completely different architecture than the 360 and PC. They never made their games work well on it.

      Both the ps4 and xbox one use x86. He only mentions the ps4 here because its hardware is better than the Xbox one. It will likely have a higher resolution or better frame rate performance.

    • Grant

      The hardware isn’t better, it’s the same. Why don’t you grow up and stop arguing about the damn internals of the console and realize PS4 and Xbox One are practically the same thing.

    • gameplaymedia

      nope , Ur wrong , an u are the one who needs to grow up and do some googling before talking !!! I’m not saying which one is better , but the ps4 hardware is better than Xbox one’s , and both are too weak against PC .

    • noah

      Maybe you should learn some stuff. Yes the Ps4 does have a higher gpu but the the xbox one has a higher cpu clock rate. So on games with more npc’s, those games will work better on xbox one. For instance Assassin’s creed unity

    • Joe Bro

      . 1 isn’t a big upgrade at all the ps4’s gpu is more powerful by a good margin. Most games now days you need a “decent cpu” and a great gpu.

    • noah

      uhh yeah ok keep thinking that when you go to play pc games and you realize how important cpu vs gpu

    • Mike

      Did you seriously just use Ubisoft to try to prove a point?

    • gameplaymedia

      ur talkin about a problem that has to be solved on PC not consoles , “cpu overhead” , on consoles , a couple of MHz’s doesnt make the difference , and the witcher 3 and ACU cases even devs found it odd !!!

    • Matthew MacGregor

      They aren’t the same internally, its been proven multiple times on multi-platform titles. The PlayStation 4 either plays a game at a greater resolution and/or better frame rate than the XBOX One. Their memory configuration and specification is different and the PlayStation 4 has a higher specification APU.

    • Grant

      Post processing is better on Xbox.

    • Barry Harden
    • Grant

      Better graphics doesn’t mean better games numbnut.

    • Barry Harden

      I never said it did asshat. The PS4 has the hardware capable of much better graphics than the XBone. When there’s a multiplatform game you should always buy the PS4 version since it’ll likely have better graphics. It also doesn’t hurt to own a PS4 for the variety of exclusives.

    • wesley hollis

      Hahahahha! Golden. Sorry fanboy I play PC. I’m telling you the PS4 hardware is better because its GPU (the most important aspect to a gaming machine) is a solid step above the Xbox 1’s. How ironic you are arguing facts with opinion and telling me to grow up.

    • LarZen

      I though even the most hardcore Xbox fans knew that is not the case by now….?

    • FreeRyu

      Nah last gen their games weren’t even worth getting on the PS3. Btw the resolution is the same on both consoles and the X1 usually has better frame rates. It would be nice if both of them were exactly the same so there isn’t any graphics wars.

    • wesley hollis

      Lol really? Uncharted, and the last of us say hello.
      God I cant believe I’m having to defend the ps3 from idiocy.

      Oh look some more misconceptions spread by fanboys. The only time an xbox one will run the same game at a higher frame rate is BECAUSE the ps4 is running a higher resolution. Is simple hardware factors that cause this. Neither console has a bottle neck issue with their CPU . which means all the strain is being put on the GPU. The ps4 and Xbox one basically have the same GPU except the ps4’s is better.

    • FreeRyu

      What do you mean you have to defend the PS3 lol corporate slave. Btw why did you mentioned Uncharted and TLOU?

    • wesley hollis

      I feel obligated to defend many things from bullshit spread by fanboys on the internet. I’ve defended the Xbox as well.

    • FreeRyu

      So what in my first statement was bs?

    • wesley hollis

      Apparently you can’t read. I already explained. I’ll quote you “BTW the resolution is the same on both consoles and the x1 usually has better frame rates”

    • FreeRyu

      Yeah the topic was Fallout 4. Apparently you can’t read.

    • wesley hollis

      “Nah last gen their games weren’t even worth getting on the PS3. Btw the resolution is the same on both consoles and the X1 usually has better frame rates. It would be nice if both of them were exactly the same so there isn’t any graphics wars.”

      nothing in your first comment was related to fallout 4. don’t be a hypocrite.

    • FreeRyu

      I was talking to wesley lol

    • wesley hollis

      yea, and i’m wesley. are you high bro?

    • FreeRyu

      When I said the resolution was the same on both I was talking about Fallout 4, which was the topic.

    • wesley hollis

      So you are trying to argue that by having one piece of relevant information in your comment i should ignore the rest since its “not on topic”? in the same comment you gave a generalization on the xbox ones framerate performance.

      hmm so with that logic i can say the moon landing didn’t happen and you are just supposed to pretend it wasn’t said. got it.

    • FreeRyu

      Well u said it had nothing to do with fallout but it did. Not trying to argue anything btw lol it says it right up there

    • wesley hollis

      “Nah last gen their games weren’t even worth getting on the PS3. ”
      ” It would be nice if both of them were exactly the same so there isn’t any graphics wars.”

      “X1 usually has better frame rates”

      why are you pretending this has anything to do with fallout 4? you’re pulling straws man.

    • FreeRyu

      ” It would be nice if both of them were exactly the same so there isn’t any graphics wars.” What game can you asume I’m talking about, going by the topic this article is on.”X1 usually has better frame rates”. This being an article on a certain multiplat(with the name in the description) what game could I possible be talking about?

    • wesley hollis

      when i refuted your point about the xbox one supposedly having a better frame rate, you said i was off topic. you realize how much that conflicts with what you’ve said right?

      if you want to argue that the xbox 1’s frame rate performance is relevant to the article, then my comment about their potential to give said frame rate is as well.

    • FreeRyu

      When did I say you were off topic?

    • wesley hollis

      “Yeah the topic was Fallout 4. Apparently you can’t read.”

      scroll up.

    • FreeRyu

      Yeah when I said “BTW the resolution is the same on both consoles and the x1 usually has better frame rates” the topic was Fallout 4.

    • wesley hollis

      Then so are my comments regarding the consoles hardware to give them said frame rates. what are you arguing about?

    • FreeRyu

      The real question is what are you arguing about. Everything was all good till you called my comment bs, I asked what about my comment was bs and then you started going in depth about comments.

    • wesley hollis

      so you’re just upset i called out bs and explained why its bs.

      good we got to the bottom of this (:

    • FreeRyu

      Nah after that you said “Apparently you can’t read. I already explained. I’ll quote you “BTW the resolution is the same on both consoles and the x1 usually has better frame rates” Which is true you just didn’t want to understand I suppose.

    • wesley hollis

      The line in question was “x1 usually has better frame rates” i didn’t want to take what you said out of context is all. (:

    • FreeRyu

      So why are we arguing ya fvckhead :/

    • wesley hollis

      lol oops did i rustle your jimmies? relax buddy.

    • FreeRyu

      People still say that? Sheesh dude lol I’m relaxed btw hence the :/

    • wesley hollis

      you seem pretty upset. “ya fvckhead” rofl its ok i forgive you. peace

    • FreeRyu

      Wasn’t askin for forgiveness but I guess if you wanna give up its cool. Peace

    • wesley hollis

      aww you dont like my forgiveness 🙁

      give up? 😮 are we playing a game? did i miss out on a prize! oh darn! xD

    • FreeRyu

      I didn’t ask for it so I wouldn’t call it forgiveness lol. Don’t worry about a prize u didn’t win :]

    • wesley hollis

      welp too bad you have been forgiven anyway!
      jesus forgives you 2 lel. i think my prize was gratification for calling out how retarded your first comment was. i’d say that’s an awesome one.

    • FreeRyu

      Nah I didn’t ask for forgiveness and what I said was facts

    • wesley hollis

      its too bad saying it doesn’t make it a fact. so annoying right? well ive explained exactly why your statement was false. refer to previous comments if you need a refresher on that (:

    • FreeRyu

      Go on digital foundry and almost every game has a better fps on X1 over PS4- FACT

    • wesley hollis

      ill try and use simple words so maybe you understand this time.

      the xbox one can only perform at a higher FPS in the same game if the PS4 is running a higher resolution or better graphical settings. if they are running the same or it was the other way around (ps4 was running lower res) the PS4 WILL have a higher FPS. its a matter of hardware and software similarity. they are using the same architecture this generation. (x86,- PC basically) and they have nearly the same hardware. the difference is the PS4’s GPU. its better, by a reasonable level.

    • FreeRyu

      But that wasn’t my point. Now we got down right to it. I said the fps is better on most multiplats. That’s it, done deal. I never asked for an explanation, or anything lol that was all you blowing everything outa proportion.

    • wesley hollis

      oh then please, enlighten me on your point. specifically in your first comment to me.

      my comment was explaining the tech difference for why bethesda’s games ran pretty bad on the ps3 and what the difference would be this gen. while yours looks like xbox fanboy defense.

      “Nah last gen their games weren’t even worth getting on the PS3. Btw the resolution is the same on both consoles and the X1 usually has better frame rates.”

    • FreeRyu

      You left out “It would be nice if both of them were exactly the same so there isn’t any graphics wars.” I don’t see why you would say “specifically in your first comment” and leave out that part, then say I look like a fanboy lol like what?. If I was a fanboy I wouldn’t have said that in the first place. Btw I said their games weren’t worth getting on last gen, you explained(which I knew). Then you go on to bring up TLOU and Uncharted as if they were Bethesda games. Guess you didn’t read it right. This all pretty much started because you said I was spreading misconceptions which I don’t know what you mean by that. Bethesda games ran and sold better on the 360 and PC than the PS3 and the X1 does have better frame rates. I understand you want to defend the PS3 but the facts are there. I see that you even acknowledged that the PS3 didn’t run Bethesda games well so wth? To answer the other question, the Xbox One Usually Has Better Frame Rates. I Was Not Bragging Or Boasting. I Was Simply Stating It Because You Said The PS4 Would Probably Have A Better Frame Rates But At The Time You Didn’t Know They Were Both 1080p 30fps So You Edited It When You Found Out.

    • PeasantSmasher

      Guys, shut up, stop arguing about corporate asshats, build a PC like a big boy, and game at whatever resolution you want at 60FPS+, which is the only acceptable way to game.

    • Stereotypical_White_Fella

      they are both 1080p 30 fps.

    • wesley hollis

      If they are both locked at the same frame rate and resolution than the ps4 will have a slight graphical difference whether its lighting or textures or rendering distance. Not that it really matters. PC is for glorifying graphics in this game not consoles.

    • DLConspiracy//
    • David Jordan

      You sir, are a hooginanny

    • TweekTweakXD .

      They are going for a solid 15 frames per second on Xbox one. Should give it a more “cinematic” feel, lol

    • David Jordan

      That would be a reason.

  • All I know That this game is going to be AAAAAmazing!!

  • This game sucks dont get it. Get Call of Duty Black Ops III instead.

  • 297146007

    I wonder how making new quest mods will be effected by the voiced protagonist.

    • Fenrisfil

      They’ll fall into one of four categories, with the first two by far the most common

      1) Unvoiced (protagonist wise anyway), so you basically just revert to FO3/NV style for those quests. May not fit in overly well with the rest of the game. I expect this to be the most common, especially with quests set in unique locations, so you aren’t constantly changing from voiced to unvoiced.

      2) quests where the protagonist says minimal things such that can be recycled from vanilla speech (so a lot less emotion and depth but still passable) which will require a lot of work to do for both genders if a lot of dialogue is required. This is no different to what was done to turn NPC’s like Bittercup into a full companion, just on a larger scale, so I expect this to happen, but not as much as the unvoiced version.

      3) The crazy option, which is all fully voiced but created by chopping up individual words from vanilla speech and pasting them back together to form new sentences. The downside here is that it’ll sound bizarre and take a tonne of work. But someone may still do it.

      4) Someone manages to find people that sound a lot like the two protagonists and records new material. This option would net the best results if the voices are indeed similar (and the worst if not), but most modders just aren’t going to be able to source that kind of thing so it’s highly unlikely.

    • 297146007

      I bet one of the first mods will revert the conversation style back to the way it was with 3/vegas; with a silent protag and word for word options.

    • OriginOfWaves

      One of the first mods? That’s highly unlikely. Bethesda said that there are over 110,000 lines of dialogue, so someone has to go through listening to all those audio files, transcribe them and type out all those hundreds of thousands of lines word for word. The silent protagonist thing is probably easier to pull off though.

    • veneratu

      I’m sure the game has subtitles

    • Fenrisfil

      Almost 100% it will. But subtitles won’t make it like FO3/NV. In those games the protagonist doesn’t have dialogue outside of the player choices. So all you’d end up getting is silence while text flies across the screen at a potentially rapid pace for a long period of time.

      Frankly, it would be a rubbish experience. So while I think we will have 3/NV style mod quests and extras, I think people will likely leave the Vanilla dialogue alone.

    • Fenrisfil

      The biggest problem there is that most games with voiced protagonists have parts where the protagonist speaks without getting a speech option (usually in continuation of a previously selected conversation path).

      So to change the dialogue to FO3/NV style you’d have to not only delete all the protagonists parts, you’d have to edit you’re dialogue options to better reflect the conversation and edit the NPC’s dialogue so that it doesn’t have weird long gaps where the protagonist was automatically butting in. So basically it could involve editing almost every piece of dialogue in the game (given that a lot of it will be conversations with the player).

      With that in mind, I don’t think we’ll ever see that mod, let alone one of the first.

  • Rubix99

    Taken a few hours ago!

  • micksture

    I hope it isn’t too “clean” before release. A Bethesda game with no bugs at launch would be unspeakable. Bugs make the games less realistic and in games like Fallout and The Elder Scrolls, where you can be absorbed for hours in the game, a little bit of an immersion break to bring you back to reality is helpful.
    Now, excuse me while I finish making my Radroach poached in Nuka sauce

  • JoinTheRest

    Atleast ps owners will find something to play that’s worth playing this year lmfao

  • This Guy

    Sooooooooo how about the Xbox one version… You know, just asking.

    • David Jordan

      The XBone is trash. You get .5 fps, and you will be grateful!!!

    • Jen Jackson

      the only thing thats trash is peoples like you with this bashing xbox one crap. its getting old.

    • This Guy

      Oh yeah? Well the PS4 is trash. Take that tough guy.

    • Ahmad Ajlouni

      720p star wars anyone 😉

    • This Guy

      900p star wars more your style? 😛

  • Guest

    Wow, a whopping whole 30 fps!? And with those graphics? You don’t say, we are so lucky. Honestly, we are not worthy. And who says you need a pc with specs like that?

    End/sarcasm

    • “…the game is going to have a solid 30 FPS and even added that he thinks people will be pleased.”

      Unintentional comedy, at its best.

  • Ocelotty1

    Is there a 4K PC option?

    • Fake Name

      Yes but your GPU will choke at 4k unless you’re running 2 or more gtx 980 sli. 2k is doable.

    • Ocelotty1

      Just picked up a Zotac gtx980 ti AMP! Extreme yesterday, now all I need is a reliable 4K curved panel

    • PeasantSmasher

      This is complete bollocks. You can game at 4k at decent settings with 1 GTX 980, Titan, 390X, Fury, etc. Don’t spout nonsense that you don’t know about unless you’re trying to be one of those “DAE PC GAMING SO EXPENSIVE??” douches.

  • Nobody get this.

  • Good.

  • Fred

    We’re talking about Bethesda here, of course there will be bugs lol, doesn’t mean I’m not NERDY level excited about this game though haha.

  • Zootopian

    Journalism tip – if you’re going to write a story about what someone has said, it’s generally good practice to quote them, rather than just vaguely interpret their words into reported speech, along with a link and expect your readers to do the work you should have done.

  • SpaceJockey

    Was looking for some mention of the xbone version but then I remembered no one cares.
