Get Even Dev On Xbox Scorpio And PS4 Pro Comparisons: Bit Too Early To Judge On Performance Vs Quality Battle

How Sony and Microsoft’s approaches to augmenting their consoles rank with developers.

15 Ways to Enhance Your Experience on PS4 and Xbox One

The Xbox One Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Pro each add and augment their respective consoles in the middle of the generation- but they approach this in radically different ways. Whereas Sony has opted for a conservative, additive approach to the existing PS4, Microsoft has gone ahead for a full overhaul of the Xbox One Scorpio.

For us as customers and gamers, seeing these two approaches is, obviously, fascinating- but how do game developers feel about this? When GamingBolt had a chance to talk to Wojciech Pazdur, Creative Director for Get Even, we posed this question to him- what approach does he prefer?

“Personally, I have always been an enthusiast of photorealism and pushing the art fidelity to the limits, so I really enjoy the opportunity to increase the visual quality of our games in the future,” he said. “But realistically speaking, it’s a bit too early to judge what will be a final benchmark for the performance versus quality battle in the future.”

He also had some words regarding the PS4 Pro’s increased memory pool, but the lack of a boost to its memory bandwidth- he feels it should not be much of an issue for Get Even, at the very least. “From my experience, I believe it’s still easier to handle the limits of memory amount than any bandwidth issues. Using 3D-scanned visuals for Get Even we’ve been really worried about the optimization issues related to memory usage limitations. But we feel that we have solved this.”

Hopefully this is not an issue that manifests itself over time as the generation proceeds. For now, it will be fascinating to see how game developers approach what are now thankfully becoming two such different and distinct machines, each with their own set of strengths and weaknesses.

    Anything to underplay the power advantage now eh? What were you saying a few years ago?

    • Davey681

      It’s hilarious. The gaming media making a mockery of itself now!

    • crazy_black_man-

      I’m curious guys. 4.2 teraflops vs 6 teraflops. What are you guys really expecting to see? You’re headed for severe disappointment if you’re expecting Microsoft to follow through on their promises, and marketing lies again. I mean, how many times are you guys gonna take it in your bleeding backside from MS, and keep asking for more? How sad.

    • STRIKE

      Its not a surprise or a big mistery what many people expect from the PS4 Pro 4.2 teraflops vs Xbox Scoprios 6 teraflops which is the same situation that we saw with the PS4 1.84 teraflops vs Xbox One 1.31 teraflops, in other words better resolution and frames per second.
      (Though the difference will be much larger)

      So according to you which are the promises Microsoft hasn’t delivered and marketing lies they have done?

      Cheap noisy fan, prone to overheating? Well that’s no surprise since that is something you see on all consoles, I should know since my PS4 Pro gets hot as a stove and the fans as loud as a plane(of course I’m exaggerating but it does get hot and loud)
      Failed One S model? Your opinion so ok.

    • R Valencia

      PS4 Pro has 4.2 TFLOPS FP32 and 218 GB/s memory bandwidth.

      Scorpio has 6 TFLOPS FP32 and more than 320 GB/s memory bandwidth.

      PS4 Pro doesn’t have 32 MB ESRAM to boost it’s lower memory bandwidth.

    • Marty8370

      MS has dropped ESRAM in Scorpio. So your point is?

    • Mr Xrat

      Poor Mark, can’t handle the fact that past Lying Phil’s spin and PR the Shitpio isn’t the beast you want it to be.

      Spam that sad emoji some more.

  • Jimmy DoneGood

    Scorpio is already known as the true 4k native monster machine. PS4 pro since launch has been a disaster because of its half assed approach.

    • Riggybro

      Like he said – it’s too early to tell –

      How can you honestly compare something that currently is only a hypothetical dream with something that actually exists that you can buy in a shop?

      Maybe after June E3 you can add some weight behind your brand loyalty/blind faith.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      Let the sales figures speak.
      Pro price drop in comming

    • Mr Xrat

      True 4K is a marketing term.

      Shitpio is a joke.

    • Davey681

      Absolutely…the “pro” is actually running games as low as 720p. $400 for a new console that is running games at 720p ?!?! Why o why do you think the media hasn’t harped on this ? Lololo

  • crazy_black_man-

    I can’t wait to see Scorpio. If it is anything like the Xbox One S, it will have a cheap noisy fan, and be prone to overheating. It had better have a computer tower case or I’m calling bullsh it on the whole marketing of this “premium” rip off of a midway upgrade of the original failed Xbox One game console. It’ll just be more money for more problems. Just your typical Xbox One disaster that we’ve all come to know-revamped and rebranded like the failed One S model.

    • kee1haul

      xbox is quieter and cooler than your PS4, you know.

    • Marty8370

    • acooper5

      Your entertaining. Yes PS4 is Lord of the gaming realm and it currently it looks like they will be the eternal Lord of Gaming.

      What’s the Xbox One’s overheating rate?

    • Marty8370


    • Tomaterrrx

      XB1 S is quieter than the PS4 dude. And the PS4 is pretty quiet.

  • Mr Xrat

    Nooooooooo! It’s not fairrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Shitpio was supposed to win!

    • kma99

      Excessive crying on the sony defense, 12 upvote penalty , 3rd down.

    • Mark


  • Marty8370

    Scorpio is DOA, PS4/Pro will be too far ahead in terms of sales. By the time Scorpio comes out PS4/Pro might see a price cut, making Scorpio a hard sell at $599/£599.

    • kma99

      Wow you already know thr price and you know it wont sell also. Man oh man i guess we have to save up now since its going to be expensive. Also please give us those ps4 pro sales numbers. Last i checked it didnt break a million yet

    • R Valencia

      PS4 Pro APU chip area size = about 321 mm^2
      Scorpio APU chip area size = about 362 mm^2

      There’s a minor BOM cost increase.

  • Davey681

    Wow….so here is what I am seeing between what the Scorpio will offer me vs the PS4 “pro”…..
    Native 4k vs 720p and an upscaling gimmick
    Back compat vs no back compat
    Game downloading service vs PSnow streaming robbery
    1080p TV supersampling and shader upgrade vs nothing
    4k blu ray vs nothing
    Coop and multiplayer gems vs 3rd person single player hack n slash bores with no replay value.

  • Marty8370

    MS are already cutting Scorpio specs, yet they still say its a premuim console. Expect a rip off price tag of $599+, £599+. Scorpio would be DOA at that price point.
