PS4 Xbox one

Microsoft UK marketing executive Harvey Eagle has once again stirred the pot regarding frame rates and resolution differences between the PS4 and Xbox One. Eagle stated to CVG that gamers would be hard-pressed to find differences between either console’s resolution and frame rate on a display smaller than 60 inches.

“If you put third-party games side-by-side that are running at slightly different resolutions or frame rates, then unless you are using a screen that’s more than 60 inches big, I defy you to really see the difference. I personally struggle to see the difference.”

Eagle does believe that Microsoft needs to overcome the perception that the Xbox One is less powerful than the PS4. “I think it’s a perception challenge, absolutely. It’s important, certainly. It’s something the media has certainly picked up on. If that leads to the perception that one machine is more powerful than another, then it’s important, and we’re trying to allow developers to bring games to Xbox One at the highest resolution and frame rate as possible.”

    Damnit I knew I should have bought a smaller TV. At 70_inches some games you can see a difference. Early games. Newer games that difference is so small unless you compare side by side you generally can’t tell which is which unless one of them has a big frame rate problem.

    I have a 32inchTV and I easily see the difference.Microsoft should get their eye’s

    I’m a Xbox One owners and even i’d have to admit that most gamers can tell the difference between 720p VS 1080p,

    900p VS 1080p most gamers can’t tell the difference

    But hey with the 10% GPU boost we’re starting to see frame rate and resolution parity between the Xbox One and PS4 multiplatform games

    • Not_true

      No we’re not.

      If they’re both running at the same resolution the Xbox version will have lower framerate, more screen tear, and/or less visual effects, or the PS4 hardware isn’t being pushed.

      Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.

    When it comes to resolution distance to screen size is the biggest factor. You sit close enough on a big enough screen you’re going to see the difference. You sit 2 feet away from a 60 inch screen yeah its easier to see the difference. You sit 8 feet away you’re less likely to see the difference.

    I did a test with Metal Gear Sold V, I have a 60″ plasma and I sit about 8 feet away. It was tough to notice the difference between them. Had I not been actively looking for differences, I don’t think I would’ve noticed really noticed much difference.

    Framerate on the other hand can be notices regardless of screen size.
