Forums - Sony Discussion - Blown away by PS4 ACIV. 1080p matters.

The resolution difference is really noticeable. When I changed from gaming on my 1280x1020 monitor to my full-HD TV like 2 years ago, it was amazing without any PC upgrade or similar.

PS4 version of Assassin's Creed IV has received a 1080p patch and holy shit... it matters. The graphics are so crisp and detailed I can't help but think how much better this is than 720p presentation.

How come people can't notice this difference? It's absurdly better than 720p.

Bacause 90% of those people who own a HDTV's bought HDReady. HDReady TV's are capped at 720p. Many places in the world TrueHD is regarded as a luxury commodity, and since cable providers only offers 720p broadcasting they end up not caring too much about upgrading to TrueHD.


There is no such thing as "TrueHD". That's nothing more than a marketing slogan to try an get people to buy TVs. Think about it. If 1080P is "full HD", then how can 4K be Ultra HD? By definition, you can't get fuller than full.

There is no cap on resolution apart from the human eye.


Quoted for the truth.

Personally, 720P and 1080P is something I expect from a 5-6" mobile phone, so to me 1080P doesn't matter, it's honestly low resolution to me these days.

1280x1020?

What kind of a weird ass resolution is that?

But I don't notice a change really at all worth mentioning.  I have every AC game but 4 on my PC.  My PC runs them at max settings and would be full 1080p.

I'm playing AC4 on the Wii U and on a tv that only does 720p and they seem the same to me.  I'm not flipping balls over the games on my PC or bummed out on my wii u version.  People make too big a deal about resolutions or a few graphical things.  My preference for PC gaming in most situations is not because of graphics or resolutions its due to other factors, whether it be controls, modding, ect.   AC4 I felt would be best played on Wii U so got that version.

The gamepad map is so damn convenient for looking around on islands for treasure chests, song sheets, enemies, boats, ect.  I love not having to bring up map and pause game.



Us PC gamers have been saying that for years

Anyone have input on how game looks at 1440/1600p? Would be interesting to compare.


Ive been playing it a bit on PC at 1440p. Looks BADASS!!!



I mostly play RTS and Moba style games now adays as well as ALOT of benchmarking. I do play other games however such as the witcher 3 and Crysis 3, and recently Ashes of the Singularity. I love gaming on the cutting edge and refuse to accept any compromises. Proud member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race. Long Live SHIO!!!!

lol, no

there have been hardly any non "Full HD" TVs at stores around here for the last 3 or so years, those 90% only exist in your head

Most people dont give a crap. How is it that you cant understand that, hm?

Wow, I never even said they did.

Just this, HDTVs sold hundreds of millions of units in the last years and the by far most of them had "Full HD" displays, because "HD rdy" ones are hardly even in production anymore. Just by that it's plainly obvious that far more than 10% of HDTVs out there are native 1080p, I'd wager it's even the majority.

I don't get what your saying. Aren't all T.V.'s HD ready. Don't you have to get HD,through your cable provider? It's not like HD just comes out of the box. lol  I have a  simple 32 inch flat screen,but I don't have HD. resoulution doesn't really matter 2 me. I just care about the game being fun. I don't think I'll ever bother getting HD. I"m just 2 lazy and cheap.
