Star Wars Battlefront – PS4 vs. Xbox One Graphics Comparison; PS4@900p vs. Xbox@720p Makes Quite a Difference!

''
Star Wars Battlefront is indeed one of the most optimized multi-platform titles of this generation, as well as one of the most visually impressive ones. DICE have manged to deliver a gorgeous representation of the Star Wars universe, courtesy of the hugely competent Frostbite engine and the implementation of photogrammetry and impressive lighting technologies. Providing great performance on a variety of different PC setups, while offering a 60fps experience on consoles. YouTube’s Candyland provided a video comparison between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Star Wars Battlefront, which can be viewed below.''

''Digital Foundry’s analysis, reveals some impressive performance results, with the i7 4790 coupled with the R9 290X, averaging at a more than adequate 80fps at 1080p. The console versions, do an equally good job, given the limitations of their weaker hardware, striving for a 60fps experience, which for the most part, seems to be somewhat attainable. The PlayStation 4 version of the game renders at a native 1600×900 or 900p, which provides a relatively sharp image, which is then upscaled to 1080p.

According to Digital Foundry’s performance analysis of the PS4 version of Star Wars Battlefront, the console runs at the equivalent of high quality on PC:

The PS4 version runs at the equivalent to the high quality preset on PC – including settings for textures, ambient occlusion, post-processing, meshes, and ‘terrain groundcover’.


Star Wars Battlefront will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 19, 2015.

Played it on all three platforms, obviously the PC version was the best looking and performing. Didn't notice any difference in the console version and strangely no one uses their mics in either version. Is it just not possible?

Not sold on the game. Seems way too simplistic, like they dumbed it down a little too much. Seems like it's going to get old very quick.

I used the mic in private chat on PS4 most of the time. But, when alone I never hear any talking... same as rocket league.

It looks like some people have very different opinions about it...

It look like there's more difference between PS4 and X1 compared to PC high settings and PS4.  

No offence mate but if you don't see any difference in the consoles versions you should seriously consider a good oculist.

Graphics are amazing. And nostalgia for the Battlefront brand is cool and all, but thats about it.

The gameplay might have cut it in the PS2 days, but certainly not today. Its far too simplistic and funnily enough, even the scale is quite disappointing compared Battlefront 2.

It really doesn't feel like your playing against other players, it feels like a bot game. Everyone is running around with the same weapons, loadouts, spawning in the same play etc... there are no engaging firefights. All the vehicles, while cool, are boring to play in.

As for the game modes, Walker Assault is far too mundane. Even with the convoluted set up, there are not enough objectives to actively completely. A BF ''Rush'' style game mode is much needed here. Dropzone is solid though, but again, 90% of the time people are running around doing nothing. Nobody seems to go for the objectives.

Played PS4 beta. Had some fun, but it didn't entice me to buy the full game. I realise this may not occur in the full release, bit I had several issues.

Weapons feel really similar and don't punish for constant fire. I kept trying to reload lol.

It's not always clear what your current game state is. How long till the Walkers make it to their goal? Etc.

It feels like everyone is running around like headless chickens with little to no co ordination.

Had a few sound glitches in the menus, but not ingame. Didn't affect gameplay.

Still could be fun in short spurts, but it seems rather shallow (Judging the beta) .

Not really, DigitalFoundry says both versions are a close match to the PC on high settings. I don't have software or hardware to sit and run frame by frame analysis on the betas, or any need/desire to really. Playing all three, the only one that really stands out as noticeably superior is PC. Of course, I have only played Hoth in all betas. But LOL @ your response. "no offense bruh but if u cant see the difference between these two sub-HD resolutions then you need to see an eye doctor!! no offense".

My eyes are fine, thanks.

You should seriously considered been reported for that post of yours.

Not everyone is looking close to minor details as DF.  Even though I think you haven't read all  the article, we can't take their word as gospel. Normal, healthy playears are not expected to notice every minor detail DF propose themselves to tackle.

I can't see anything in his post that would justify reporting him. He is also very right. The difference between the console and PC versions is quite noticable even at only high quality settings on the PC. I have on PC and played on a console at a friends house. I find it hard to imagine someone not noticing the difference.



I hope they balance the walkers map, do something about the spawing and that stupid light effect when you go outside the hangar it's so dumb to be blinded when you defend it's already hard as it is



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.
