Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 to PS4 graphical leap

If you are comparing graphics between gens.. The Last of Us 1 and 2 would probably be a better comparison

And Detroit:Become Human, that game has astonishingly good character models. You can see a HUGE difference between that game and Quantic Dreams last game - Beyond:Two Souls on the PS3.

Yup. No need to go as far as GOT though. Horizon, GTS, GoW and detroit have all released and proven console games are not only and massive leap ahead of PS3 but also leading ahead of vanilla, unmodded PC visuals in current day. GoT just looks like it could be for the next gen of consoles,I know sony and I know they wouldn't do that but it looks like a double gen leap to the ps3. I'm quite amazed.

Battlefront II would like a word with you. :)



                                                                                                                                                           

I played AC:FC the other week and cringed at how bad the graphics were compared to games releasing now. Obviously, they needed to downgrade for last gen.

I also just played Metro last light... Ulgh. Bad

You must have played that on last gen consoles (or the Redux, which is still miles behind the maxed PC version).

You could have made this same case with Horizon and/or God of War. Hell, I could make the case with The Order.

You can make the case with The Order, but with how short and linear it was There's always that bit of doubt to how good the larger, more vast games can look. Horizon, Uncharted 4, God of War, and DMC 5 most recently really put everything into perspective as to how much these systems can handle.

Exactly,. Ps3 ps+ game. Freedom Cry was ps4 ps+



We'll get the same thing when the PS5 releases because people will compare the very last generation of graphics on the PS4 (this) with the very first generation of graphics on the PS5. But, that gap will be smaller even though it will still be noticeable.



 

The PS5 Exists. 


I've been saying since day one that the leap from PS3 to PS4 is massive. Killzone: Shadow Fall showcased that at launch, and then we had the same kind of next gen graphics on inFamous: Second Son, which was open world. Those two alone quickly showcased that PS4 was much more capable than PS3.

Anyway, it's the same old shit every gen.

-> Console gets announced
-> People say specs are disappointing
-> People base the capabilities of said new console based on cross gen ports saying stuff like "huh, it looks just like last gen, just a bit better"
-> When truly next gen titles hit, these same people still can't recognize that they look vastly superior to last gen titles and say stuff like "it looks a bit better, but it would be possible on last gen with a few concessions"
-> After that, we have the phase in the gen where people get used to pretty new games and forget how ugly and outdated last gen titles look now, so they glorify them with nostalgia goggles
-> And finally after 3 or 4 years into the generation people admit that it indeed looks stunning

Looking forward for this cycle to repeat with PS5. .-.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Next gen is actually going to be a bigger one, visually, to this one. Trust me. And I don't say that based on a guess.

The problem is when people compare the tail end of the old generation (when they've mastered the hardware) to the start of the new (that they're only just getting to know). Cross gen and launch games won't make the most of the new hardware. Comparing early to early or late to late software provides a better measure, and in that regard it certainly does feel like a generational leap.

Exactly, this happens every generation.

I remember back when 360 launched it was getting called Xbox 1.5, most of the 3rd party titles were cross-gen, the 1st party titles started development on previous gen hardware and adoption rates of HDTVs were still pretty low so we werent really seeing the full potential.
