Sniper Elite 3 Head To Head Comparison: Xbox One Suffers From Screen Tearing, PS4 Has Better Contrast

But the Xbox One version seems to have sharper colors.

Sniper Elite 3

As with every AAA game, we first do an initial test followed by a full blown tech analysis. After Murdered: Soul Suspect, we now take a look at  505 Games and Rebellion Oxford’s Sniper Elite 3. As usual we have compared the same scene across the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. Since this is an initial test we have not considered the last gen and PC versions, and their analysis will be included in our full article next week.

For now, the Xbox One version seems to be suffering from screen tearing, specially when bullet cam kicks in. Screen tearing is almost non-existent in the PS4 version of the game. On the brighter side, the Xbox One version has sharper colors, something we have seen in previous games as well and on the other hand, the PS4 version has better contrast.

Sniper Elite 3 is now available for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. On a related note, you can watch the full video walkthrough of the game over here. Stay tuned for our full analysis next week.

Note: Each of the GIFs below are more than 20 seconds long so they will take a bit of time to load. Here is hoping that you are on broadband.

    “sharper colors”? What does that even mean? Sharpness and contrast are adjustable by the display.

    I hope you have your Xbox One set to limited color space so it’s not running into the black crush contrast bug.

    Let’s just wait for digital foundry. Again.

      There is so much fail in your comment. Even with Full range selected on Xbox One or 360 you will always get crushed blacks. It is a well documented issue with xbox. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=722069

      It just means that Gamingdolts is being their using dopey selves. Better colors, lol! So pathetic what these fanboys will resort to to make themselves feel better.

    • jent

      Fanboys? Are you saying that people in the comments are fanboys, or that gamingbolt authors are the fanboys?

    • Georges

      lol I thought the same thing.. Honestly what does ‘sharper color’ mean? Yea I only trust DF too and at least they give a ton of details. Anyway it shouldnt be a case for pointless fan wars (yea people still dont understand how pointless it is and that they just waste their time)

  • Rooster41

    Most Xbox One games seem to have better colors compared to the PS4 version

    • John Cooper

      Flashy colors do not always equal color accuracy.

    • Rooster41

      Better colors is better colors there’s no way around that, it seems that the Xbox One version has some screen tearing during the xray-shot/cut scenes but has better colors than the PS4 version

      I’m diffinetly getting the Xbox One version

    • Guest

      And better performance, res, fps, aa and effect is better, there’s no wway around that. Im definitely getting it on the PS4.

    • jent

      Like you have the Xbox One. Lol.

    • Guest

      Like you have a PS4. Lol.

    • jent

      You made the comment as if you had both consoles and were making a choice. I found that laughable since you clearly have animus against the Xbox One. And BTW, I do not have a Ps4 since I cannot justify the expense for the additional value it would give me.

    • jent

      I was saying to myself that you would respond in this fashion. You should read my posting history. You will see that I have never made any negative comments about the Ps4. I recognized your hate a long time ago but you hide it well by concealing your posting history.

    • Guest

      Hmm, you recognize my “hate” from a long time ago, but i hide it by concealing my posting history. Hmm, hmm, hmmm. Nope, dont know what you’re talking about. You have me confused with sombody else. Because im new here. So get your “recognition” right. Now ta ta, old boy.

    • jent

      You have more than 500 comments all of which are not accessible. Yes, I think you are hiding your hateful statements.

    • Guest

      assume way child. btw, all your statements are hateful.

    • jent

      I don’t hide my comment history. If you spent any actual time reading my posting history, you would see that your statement is false. You attempt at infantilizing me only goes to prove my previous points.

    • popo123

      Judging from the gifs above, the Ps4 has more saturation in it compared to the Xbox 1. Yellows are more yellow, greens have brighter greens.

    • Not_true

      You are wrong.

    • Guest

      Its does not have better colors, but it does have a worst framerate, lower res textures on the ground along with lower anisotropic filtering and tearing. Its inferior in every way. You got egg on your face. As does Gamingbolt.

    • Guest

      And most PS4 games seem to have better colors, framerate, resolution, AA, texture quality and effects compared to the X1 version

    • Not_true

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

      Don’t even start with the “sharp popping textures” from the hideous upscaling sharpness filter that they ended up removing. The crushed black contrast bug on Xbox One can be replicated on any display by increasing the contrast and/or sharpness levels. This is NOT an advantage for Xbox, only a hindrance.

    • Fay_Z

      i definitely have to agree with him there, if you have a tv that can calibrate with full range 12 bit colour (deep colour) i find that bones colours are more accurate where as ps4’s tends to look washed out slightly, it could be my tv setting but i have calibrated my bravia w65 pretty well

    • Guest

      Oh please and i defnitely disagree, I find the PS4 to have more accurate colors and just looks better on my bravia w65. And find the Xone’s colors to look more washed out.

    • PC Elitist

      LMAO, what are your TV settings for? It’s no advantage at all

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

    I love owning both consoles it just feels good. no more negative news if something is better on one console I am set and ready, I get to play every game…I recommend if you can afford it to buy both

    • Mr_Blonde57

      It is pretty great isn’t it? Im mostly getting shooters for my X1 so ill probably pick this up for that dispite a little screen tearing. I just don’t like wasting the precious hard drive space on the ps4.

  • PC_Is_The_Master_Race

    Looks like PC wins again. To no one’s surprise.

    • Guest

      Looks like youre repeating yourself again, for the one billionth time. Man, is it tiring. And I know youre upset the X1 version has tearing, I know youre a secret closeted Mx fanboy. btw, I bet you my pc is better than your pc, peasant!

    • PC_Is_The_Master_Race

      Why would I be upset the xbone version has tearing when the PC Version has no tearing and 1080P 60FPS minimum along with more options like supersamlping, Better texture quality and more?

      Is this the new Sony fanboy mantra of calling any PC gamer an xbox fanboy because they literally have no arguments against PC’s?

    • Guest

      “Why would I be upset the xbone version has tearing when the PC Version has no tearing and 1080P 60FPS minimum along with more options like supersamlping”
      Cuz youre a ms fanboy, and you aint fooling anybody, btw its supersampling, learn to spell, troll!

    • PC_Is_The_Master_Race

      Do you have any arguments other than “B-B-BUT NO U”?

      Thought so. Frustrated Sony fanboys with no argument deflecting.

    • Guest

      Do you? All you do is repeat yourself over and over and over and over again at ad nauseum. Its just the same thing over and over. No good points, you just keep repeating the same garbage over and over again. And then we have to hear it from your million accounts. You sir are the biggest loser on the face of the planet. Go make another account or go repeat yourself again for the one billionth time. And im not even a sony fanboy, you twerp. I think both systems are patheticly weak and think the pc is much better. But you are just pathetic about it and give the real pc fans a bad name. And we all know you’re really just some ms fanboy in disguise. Its so obvious.

    • PC_Is_The_Master_Race

      Still no evidence that I’m an Xbox fanboy. Just a bunch of frustrated screaming and trying to deflect.

      Probably derp again.

      Oh and PC version 60FPS and upwards. Console versions. lol.

    • Not_true

      Get help. It’s not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video games on them. God gamers have both a great PC and consoles, and find ignorant mustards screaming their lies and hatred disgraceful.

    • PC_Is_The_Master_Race

      So this is your new account?

      Guess you got embarrassed by the reddit thing, huh?

    • Not_true

      Can the moderators please ban this mustard peasant troll again. It’s been banned multiple times on dualshockers, gamingbolt, cinemablend, onlysp, gamepur, and pretty much everywhere on disqus. All it does is spread lies, ignorance, and hate about consoles and PS4 especially.

    • jent

      What reddit thing?

      He’s been exposed as the lying copy-pasting Sony tardbot that he is. He’s doing it all over the internet 24/7, the ultimate loser at real life.

      A ha, stupid, you thought i was derp. I think you secretly sweat him, since you are always bringing him up. You cant stop thinking of him. And im no Sony fanboy, Im a PC fan, you peasant! My PC will blow your laptop away. Etard!

    • ProAssassin84

      We have a argument against PC,s. We do not want one or will ever wnat one. We do not want sims and Goat simulator.

    • PC_Is_The_Master_Race

      ” Can you remotely play BF4 in another room or outside with a handheld
      device or be in another state and have your PC turn on and download
      stuff for you?”

      All things Steam does.

      Sorry kiddo. You lose. PC wins

    • Demetrius Radford

      They really can with the PSVita you can be out of town playing on your ps4 at home

    • Not_true

      PS4 is more powerful than most PCs and will run Sniper Elite 3 far better.

      Sorry if you hate the fact that consoles are a viable financial market. 8.2+ million PS4s and counting. Nothing you say will stop it, you are helpless. Keep lying and hating while everyone else ignores you.

    • Black H0es are Least Married

      too bad no one plays on PC. keep begging for leftover console ports

  • AJ

    Are we really using gifs as a way to compare games? Seriously, Gamingbolt, if you want to post a comparison article, at least do a proper comparison.

    This site is such a joke for gaming.

  • Guest

    And yet the color look better on the PS4 version on those GIFs and whew! that tearing!

  • ProAssassin84

    LMFAO all these better colors comments. XB1 and PS4 also hooks up to TV,s which offer lots and lots of options to tweak settings. Also PS4 has RGB which most people has turned on which is a no no because that is for PC imputs. Set it to limited and the difference is very noticeable.

    I do like to see XB1 owners grasping for straws looking for any advantage over pS4. It is hilarious and makes for good reading.

    • Not_true

      They’re from misterxmedia’s cult probably.

  • Fay_Z

    his left nut looks slightly smoother on ps4, damn it xbox you so underpowered the differences are as big as pong vs crysis!

  • That’s only the start of the first mission and the screen tearing is really noticeable. I hope that’s pre-day one patch or he had something running in the background. Not acceptable, despite 1080p.

  • Bliss Seeker

    Is this the XB1’s sharpness filter in action?

  • truth

    I just want everyone to know that the game has a VSync option on XB1. I turned it on(never had it off) and notice there is absolutely no screen tearing now.

  • Guest

    Yeah, this guy is a real fanboy, he’s everywhere spweing his PS4 hate. He’s very obnoxious.

  • John Cooper

    You need one of these to set the correct sharpness level on your tv. http://www.avforums.com/attachments/test-3-png.465974/
    As far as setting it to zero or almost off that’s a rule of thumb. LCDs and plasmas have fixed pixels. They are always as sharp as they can be.
    The sharpness control adds digital sharpness processing on top of the image which brings out noise and artifacts in the picture and adds glowing lines to the edge of objects.

    It might look subjectively sharper if your at a distance but it removes depth from the picture because it sharpens things that were not meant to be sharp in the picture. Directors often have some things in sharp focus leaving others out of focus to draw attention to things and turning up sharpness ruins that effect.
