PS4/Xbox One Differences Not That Important, “Unthinkable to Go Back to 720p” – Dev

Spiders CEO talks the subtle differences between both current gen consoles.

Posted By | On 08th, Jul. 2015 Under News


The Technomancer

We’re approaching nearly two years into the hardware cycle of the PS4 and Xbox One, but there are still key differences in how each platform handles its games. One need look no further than third party titles like Batman: Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which run at 900p resolution on the Xbox One while hitting 1080p on the PS4.

Of course, there are factors involved as well. GamingBolt spoke to Jehanne Rousseau, CEO of Spiders which is working on the upcoming current gen action RPG The Technomancer, about the same. Keeping in mind the Xbox One’s memory bandwidth, issues with eSRAM and lower compute count – not to mention how some games are hitting 720p vs. 1080p – what is Rousseuau’s take on differences between the two current gen consoles?

“Honestly the differences are not that important. They are present, it’s true, but we are very far from the technical difficulties we usually faced with a cross platform title on the previous generation. There may be subtle rendering difference between the two platforms but that seems unlikely. Our objective is really to offer the maximum of details in 1080p. And it’s unthinkable for us to go back to 720p.”

The Technomancer will be out in 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. We’ll find out in the coming years whether the divide narrows between the PS4 and Xbox One or not in the meantime.


Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • *Also On PC

    Incoming 900P on PS4, 792P on Xbone with silky smooth 30FPS (Drops to 20FPS)

    Meanwhile an i3/750Ti PC will run it 1080/60FPS (With slight drops). Again.

    • Plerpy

      That’s only a small different isn’t it? 😉

    • Tha-Truth

      Incoming non – gaming peasant tramps on the PC trying to defend their broken version of Arkham Knight. Trashy last – gen hardware on the PC is all overhype and underdeliver that can’t run games properly. Poor baby peasants.

    • *Also On PC

      You mean the Arkham Knight port where Sony paid for parity and broke the game. Lame example there, shill.

      PC will still dominate your pathetic peasant platform :^)

    • Jecht_Sin

      Sony paid for parity, now? If they did the game would run like crap on PS4 (hint: it doesn’t). It has been WB deciding that the PC market for its game wasn’t worth more than a 12 people team to port it. lol

      It’s also funny how it is clear now that the Batman’s demo was running on PS4. You know.. it never stuttered!! 😀

    • *Also On PC

      It runs at 30FPS with drops to 25FPS. It runs like crap, peasant.

      Sony paid for downgrades because they didn’t want to be embarrassed by Nvidia again like with MGS V

    • Tha-Truth

      Keep trying to defend your worthless, dead, peasant platform you illiterate gimp. If you actually believe Sony paid for the PC version to be downgraded then you really are living, breathing proof that PC vermin are the most useless, uneducated, unemployed, unwashed, ignorant sub – human waste that this planet has ever had the misfortune of producing.

      The PC version had to be downgraded because it’s trashy, overpriced hardware always overhypes and underdelivers to appeal to braindamaged, ignorant peasants like you who are too stupid to know any better. Just deal with it and move on, creating conspiracy theories to try and defend your weak, pathetic, peasant PC only furthers the proof that PC gaming is reserved for the most low – IQ morons of society.

    • VoidWalker

      yeha. . . ppl that like playing highly rendered, butter smooth games are total peasants. . . meanwhile console gamers are stuck with frame rates and texture qualities PC gamers have had for over a decade and have moved far past now.

    • *Also On PC

      Poor peasant having a meltdown because he can’t stand the fact he bought a 30FPS brick

      If POS4 is so good. Why isn’t Uncharted 4 in 60FPS

      Go on, explain why your peasant platform isn’t running it at 60FPS

    • Tha-Truth

      Illiterate gimp having a meltdown because his trash hardware won’t let him play Arkham Knight.

      If your peasant PC for low – IQ mongrels is so good why can’t it run a simple open – world game without crashing every 20 seconds???

      Go on, peasant, explain why POSPC can’t run Arkham Knight without constantly crapping out like the cheap, low – quality garbage it truly is.

    • *Also On PC

      WB were paid for console parity because the low end garbage consoles couldn’t keep up with PC.

      Now explain why your trash box is so garbage it can’t run 60FPS and all the games are downgraded.

    • Guest

      Lol, so true. But there’s still difference between the PS4 and X1.

    • Barry Harden

      Such an idiot!

      Game’s not even out and you’re already touting the low end PC’s. Didn’t work so well for Arkham Knight. GTFO!

    • OC Guy

      ….yawn…just PC master waster with nothing good to play so he trolls, trolls, trolls away. Who’s shocked? No one? didn’t think so.

  • XbotMK1

    Xbox One and PS4 are important to Xbox fanboys.

    • TenTonHammer

      i think itll be 900p xbox 1080p ps4 like suusal and like ususal with upscaling and sitting 2.5meters away form the TV its not noticeable

    • Mark

      Bang

    • Guest

      upscaling or not, its still inferior and there are noticeable differences.

    • DLConspiracy//

      Yes it only takes an entire team of people to evaluate the frames and resolution in order to point it out.

    • If it makes you feel better about playing games on an Xbox One as opposed to a PS4… keep telling yourself that.

    • DLConspiracy//

      I don’t need to put other consoles or gamers down to feel better about playing games. I just play them because I like gaming. It’s actually a fun way to enjoy games. Try it.

    • starscream1180

      sure.

    • OC Guy

      I guarantee if someone put out two displays with one at 900p and one at 1080p during game play you would not be able to tell one bit of difference! Of course you will say you could even though you have never compared any two before. I actually have and when I did not spot any real difference in visual fidelity I stopped caring about the numbers game. Maybe you should grow up a little LOL, you 14 year old fanboys are a hilariously pathetic bunch!

    • *Also On PC

      They only drag back the gaming industry, John Derp

  • MadMen

    Stupid, he said nothing towards the obvious, as if 900p is ok over 720p, we want 1080p, period, quit dodging.

    • Mark

      Not if it affects frame rate….speak for yourself

    • Jecht_Sin

      Which is why Batman among many other games has an higher resolution and better frame rates than on Xbone?

    • Mark

      Hunh? I said “IF”, hence Batman’s resolution on PS4 runs 1080p pretty well. Otherwise I’d want the res to drop for stable frames o_o

    • *Also On PC

      If you want 1080P and 60FPS. We have a platform for you. It’s called the PC Master Race

    • OC Guy

      Too bad the PC “master waste” doesn’t have the best exclusives out for gaming, which can only be found on consoles. Until then the argument over PC being “better’ is simply invalid. If your argument is for cross plats PC wins, but that’s the only area it wins at.

    • VoidWalker

      and the only reason that’s the case is because ppl buy consoles over PC .. . if everyone just got a good PC and stopped buying crappy consoles PC would get all the exclusives too. it would be a win-win . . . yet ppl are too short sighted to do that,

    • OC Guy

      “we” do? If I could tell the difference between the visual fidelity of 900p vs 1080p I guess it could be an issue, but I can’ and I doubt most could if they had two screens to compare to in person at the same time.

    • Fayz VI

      i can barely tell the difference between 1080p & 900p, if no one told you the resolution i bet you would say the same.

  • Barry Harden

    Differences are there and will only get bigger as the games get more demanding.

    PS4 is the only console to get right now.

    • DLConspiracy//

      Except there are 3 consoles out currently. So if one was interested in gaming several places. They could.

      You are right about one thing. Games WILL get more demanding and that will also mean it will affect ALL consoles. Not just the Xbox One.

    • *Also On PC

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      Only Wii U is worth getting since it has games. PS4 has no games :^)

    • Barry Harden

      It does? Sales says a lot. So much so that Nintendo has given up on Wii U just like the publishers.

    • *Also On PC

      It tells people will buy the overhyped console which can’t do 1080P 60FPS and has no games over the console that only promised it will have games.

    • OC Guy

      Why is that? The three good exclusives for the PS4 right now are five or six hour, single player only games. Not worth it. Please explain how the differences will get bigger when in the life span of past consoles differences got smaller as systems were optimized.

    • Barry Harden

      3 good exclusives? That’s your opinion.
      As games get more demanding you’ll notice XBone versions will cut out textures, lighting, shading, etc.. just to maintain 900p. These games in the future will demand more of the CPU and GPU resources.

    • Fayz VI

      …. no not really, one will output 900p & one will output 1080p, which will basically mean minimal differences.

    • Barry Harden

      Other corner cutting methods will happen. Have you seen the comparisons between Forza 4 and Forza 5??
      Textures and gaming features will be cut out just to keep up.

    • Fayz VI

      oh like how driveclub is 30fps with jaggies & order 1886 & killzone mp is sub hd?

    • Barry Harden

      oh like how pathetic Gears of Wars remastered for XBone looks worse than the Xbox360 edition?

      http://www.craveonline.com/gaming/articles/870043-gears-war-ultimate-editions-xbox-one-visuals-look-pretty-underwhelming

    • Fayz VI

      yes i agree with you, gow remastered looks awful compared to original

  • aaron

    Happy with 900 p, love 1080, but frame rate really matters. Xbox one has been great so far dx12 should be cool

  • starscream1180

    every game upscales to 1080

    i own both consoles …but if you soley play ps4 due to it having more native 1080p games …thats kinda petty.

    either way to each their own

  • DarthDiggler
    • spideynut71
    • *Also On PC

      Downgraded console versions that had paid parity.

      Wow. How not impressive.

      But then what can you expect from a console so pathetic that Sony had to pay to gimp the PC version and can’t hit it’s 60FPS promise on with its own games.

  • Jason Mounce

    It sure was important last-gen when it mattered more in favour of the Xbox 360 vs PS3, who originally had the issues with multiplatform optimization in the early-years after launch – with every journalist touting how the extra power in the 360 totally matters.

    The tables have turned and now we have journalists and bribed ‘Professionals’ in the industry spouting how it Doesn’t matter when really, it’s the exact same thing that happened last-generation. Just, it’s now Sony who’s the leader of sales and not the 360, who had a 1 year head-start to boot and used a simplistic, PC-like structure.

  • Edonus

    “Keeping in mind the Xbox One’s memory bandwidth, issues with eSRAM and lower compute count – not to mention how some games are hitting 720p vs. 1080p ”

    this quote highlights why Gaming media is a piece of sh!t.

    Xbox 1 has a higher memory bandwidth, the issues arent with eSram it with developers and development cycles. And in truth their its all blubber talk…. is it the Compute count or eSram… the distances between 720p and 1080p isnt wide enough for it to be both…. and what about when games hit 1080p on the X1.

    and 720p vs 1080p is launch games and very special cases like 3…. trying to make it sound like it is a baseline is just bad journalism. It would be like highlighting the few times when the X1 has had better framerates and making it a baseline that Xbox 1 games have better framerates.

    And these ideas come from the site and go squarely against the developer saying “the differences are not important”.

    So Gamingbolt is basically saying the Dev is a idiot that doesnt know what he is talking about…… and just for the record what games have Gamingbolt developed?

  • Cyberats

    Are people so rich nowadays that they are willing to throw their money away on a very proprietary, yet extremely inferior, non-upgradeable solo gaming PC ?
    An inferior machine who is still behind in the flexibility of saving games & storage ?
    Welcome to SLOWARE buy a console governa’ ?

  • VoidWalker

    Can we all just admit that consoles are ruining gaming? If everyone had a PC, we could get all the games, with great graphics and fps . . .
