Graphics may be ok but what about gameplay? You can't judge a game through stills, cutscenes, cgi trailers etc.


And if you want really good graphics, you might as well just go to the cinema.


Kids this days...

Comes to thread about Graphics.

Complains about focus on Graphics.

If you want good graphics, I just need to go outside.

idk, kids don't read but adults can be just as silly.

Show me a pc for $400 that will have better graphics than a ps4...

you go.

The PS4 has more RAM, and has significantly FASTER RAM. Not to mention the PS4 has a more powerful GPU, that buid however has a faster CPU, but other than that. No, definitely not more powerful, around the area sure. If it was a 7870 instead of a 7850 then it'd be pretty on par with it.

I KNOW they're impressive, but I can't bring myself to BE impressed with hyper realistic graphics. I see real life every day as it is. I prefer it when games take a unique approach to aesthetics, even if it's not graphically superior. Okami , Journey, and even the original Wind Waker look ten times better to me than Killzone. Personal preference, of course, but I just can't get excited about realistic visuals.

I'm going to have to confiscate your gamer card.

Comparing Graphics to real life is expressely forbidden by the UnWritten Laws.

But then why are some people getting hard-ons for how realistic game graphics are becoming?

You can like realistic graphics, you just can't compare them negatively to Real Life. E.G,

this game looks better than Life. {Perfectly Acceptable}

this game looks good but not as good as Life {Wrong!}

If your looking at what out right now, there doesn't seem to be anything game breaking by any means. We'll have to see what some of these games finished products look like.

Keep in mind, too, that current cross-platform games on consoles perform best on a PlayStation 4, which currently sells for $100 less than an Xbox One. If you were to try to build a gaming PC for $400 to $450, our experience has taught us that you would end up with a machine that can't compete with either next-gen console. Though we both succeeded in our goal, $550 was proved quite limiting when it came to picking components.

If you had a budget of $550, which platform--PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC--would you choose? How would you build a gaming PC on a console-size budget? Let us know in the comments below.

Text based games from yesteryear had the best graphics. Imagination.

You just proved my point even further.  They couldn't do it for $400.  The least they could do it for was $550 just to match it.  $550 gets you the console, a couple games and a ps plus membership which would get you even more games for free.  The ps4 is an incredible value when you look at it without skewed pc vision.

well start posting if you are going to say that.  i always hear that PC's are soo impressive but in the last 10 years i still have only seen crysis as an example of impressive graphics.  otherwise everything seems to be a late port of the console version or indies.

There is true to a extent. The reason why most pc games don't push the envelope is because they are ports of console games or cross platform games. So better graphics simply becomes the ability to run the game at a higher resolution and frame rate than its console counter parts. I don't think its a bad thing, however this shouldn't be the reason to not acknowledge how powerful pcs are in comparison. Because the fault lies on the developers not the hardware.

to be honest,.. that's my entire point.

pc hardware can obviously be put together i a way that runs 10x or better than a ps4.   but games are as much software as hardware.  20 years ago there were tons of examples of how much futher pc games were compared to consoles.   today that advantage has been almost entirely eliminated as games on pc are made to be multiplat with consoles due to massive budget size.

pcs are powerful but almost all that power is going to waste.

for pc to look better it seems to be up to modders these days.  i've seen a few impressive mods but not all mods are stable and it can take a lot of worth to find the good ones (assuming there are any).  and even a good mod is kind of like putting lipstick on a pig.   look back at the skyrim examples,.. amazing textures on low poly assets with stiff, terrible animations.  makes for a good screenshot i suppose but the overall graphics in game are, to me, not so impressive.

I'm comparing them to show that the PS4 is not, in fact, on another level.

And what next-gen game looks better? Ryse? At certain parts, sure, but taken as a whole it doesn't hold a candle to the detail in Skyrim with mods.

I may share the same sentiment that it's not on another whole level but your example is extremely poor for the most part ... 

Doesn't hold a candle, eh ? Then do pray tell what a highly modded Skyrim does better than Ryse or Infamous. 

It certainly has better lighting and textures than Infamous, and while Ryse looks better overall, it's such a compressed world that it's practically a poor model.
