What does more power give you between X1 and PS4

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What does more power give you between X1 and PS4

Well, if they used both consoles to their full potential, there would be a difference, but most 3rd party companies are too lazy to do that.

A Stable game.

Depending on how much of it is true, not a lot to somewhat a lot. The example that was given was that PS4 could get 60 fps while Xbox One get 30 fps with otherwise same graphics.

This would be interesting if such a range happen but I believe we will not see that much of a gap.  If you compare simular graphics cards today based on the released and rumor specs between the X1 and PS4, the gap is not that large.  I guess one of the keys would be how much each company gets close to optimal performace out of the system.

Mostly exclusives looking much better on PS4, but some multiplats may up the graphics (like Assassin's Creed)

I have always wondered if the exclusives look better because of the studio behind the exclusives or the hardware.  Design plays just as much a role in making a game then the pure grunt of the hardware.  One of the main reasons I purchase a Sony console is because I believe they have some of the best studios in house.  Its the main reason I will be getting a PS4 at some point once those exclusives start to hit the shelves.



By itself? just bragging rights on here, but coupled with the $100 difference and it creates value. A cheaper console that's more powerful, with a cheaper paid PS plus plan which gives more discounts, incentives, "free" games etc. Put the pieces together and the console puzzle is a better value, which is likely why pre-orders are in PS4's favor atm.

Was about to post what you said in bold. Higher specs + 100$ lower price combination will sway a lot of buyers in PS4 direction.

ps4 can be native 1080 while one might be sub full hd. One can maintain a better framerate than the other. Pretty much all I can think of in terms of multiplat games due to them needing to be on Parity.

Forza says hi... I think you are just making thing out of nowhere...

You know that the Xbox 360 can do native 1080p at 60sec without any problem right?... While displaying a single black box :)

Same for the PS4/Xbox One, there is no : "PS4 can do 1080p native, while Xbox One can do sub-HD...., both can do native 1080p and it will depend on game developpers now...


I did specify MULTIPLATS didn't I u should improve on your reading comprehension. It's probably going to be like this gen sometimes you see the x360 version having a better resolution/framerate in some games so I don't see why it can't happen this gen.



Regarding most games, next to nothing - particularly if things like this continue to happen:

Okay, first being a jerk in your replies will not help in this conversation (like implying I cannot understand what you are saying in english) :)

Also, what I'm saying is RELEVANT to multiplatform, you know, MANY factors can change in multiplaforms, textures, number of polygons, number of players, size of the world, number effects, etc...  Even with a bit less power, both can be at 1080p but with some other differences... So saying that PS4 would be 1080p NATIVE and Xbox HD-Sub, is just talking out of you ass...

Even though the gap is not that large, often times developers will lock frame rate to 30 fps even if the game can do 45.  The reason for this is for screens that refresh at 60 hz, we get an even signal  101010101010, ones are refreshes and 0 are not.  If we get 45 frames, we get less consistency.  So if the Xbox version of a game is capable of 45 fps, they'll lock it to 30 and if the PS4 version of the game can run 60, they'll run it at 60.

With that said,  I doubt we'll see many or any games that do this.  I think they'll try for the same frame rate on both systems.
