    Lightbulb Next Gen Vs. Current Gen Graphics Comparison

    IGN has posted a great graphics comparision between PS4, XB1, PC and Old gen using splitscreen. It really gives you a good idea of the difference in graphics.

    I think last Gen versions hold up very well.

    IGN missed an obvious one (i think everyone is). PS4, XB1 tessellate the rivers/sea. Would have been an obvious point of comparison/difference imo.

    PS360 can't render that technique at all.

    i don't get a point of these comparisons.

    the best way to compare would be to compare two games that are similar in the time interval they came out in, similar genre, similar sort of development (compare two first party games, compare two games made by skilled developers or the same developers).

    comparing a cross-gen game together means...nothing. last-gen versions hold up, which means nothing. this game built from scratch for the X1 or PS4 alone would've been a game in a totally different league. better yet, compare Watch Dogs 3 that may come out by the end of this generation (as this is at the end of PS3/360 generation) and hopefully it doesn't support last-gen consoles...and then compare that game to the last-gen versions of this game.

    The point is quite clear. Compare the different platform so viewers have even more information on which to get. Hey, it looks that much better on the PS4. I might just buy a PS4, and get the game on that system.

    OR

    The game doesn't look that much better on the XB1. I'll just get it on the 360 and wait for more "next gen" games are released.

    i get that point. i meant that we know what they are all going to look like. PS4/X1 version will undoubtedly look better than PS3/360 versions, PS3/360 versions will undoubtedly hold their own, PC will be the best.

    the casual gamers don't care about all this so it's not for them. the not-so-casual don't need this because they know better.

    comparing last gen versions with next-gen versions makes no sense to me.

    The purpose of these comparisons is not to show which console has more power. It's to show differences for those who care -- probably for the IGN audience.

    If you have a next-gen system, you're going to get the next-gen version. The price of the last-gen version isn't cheaper than next-gen....it's the same price.

    EDIT

    Oh I see Sufi, yeah I agree comparing current gen with last gen is a bit pointless, but I can see the IGN audience may want to compare, specially if Watch Dogs was a game they were waiting for, before upgrading.

    It's nice for those that are still trying to decide on if they want to get into the next-gen.

    From the way you said it I thought you were saying the opposite. If that's what you meant then yeah....for someone who hasn't upgraded yet and Watch Dogs was the game they were waiting for to decide, this comparison can be a factor.

    This game doesn't look like it's next gen on either system, or pc for that matter.. so a comparison isn't really telling the story.

    true that it may make some people jump but really...i kinda feel like it may give some people the impression that next-gen isn't that powerful...because the last-gen versions look fairly ok compared to them. for reasons certain peeps do not understand.

    and well, if you already have next-gen then pshhh...things are pretty clear cut.

    just an FYI, in Canada there is a $10 difference between "last gen" and "current gen" games. Pretty ****ed up but whatever.

    Because the new gen is mostly about resolutions and framerates which is what I've been saying all along. There's hardly any games you see that are really only possible on the new gen systems yet. Both consoles held back on the hardware anyway with PC being ahead even now in their first 6 months on the market. The 360 was pretty close to PCs with the likes of Oblivion back in 2005/6. Lower framerates and resolutions sure but overall it was amazing for a console to pull off at the time and wouldn't have been possible on 6th gen systems.

    And on the topic of price, any new PS3 release at this point should be $39/$49USD. I think Activision (of all the publishers lol) is actually starting to do this. They did it with Spidey 2 at least.

    Seeing comparisons like this i feel fine that i did NOT jump into the ps4/x1 generation early and i should stick with the ps3 a little longer. The watch dogs ps4 version surely looks better than ps3 but not 399 usd better. Yeah it's a cross gen game so it's not bound to look way better but even with the exclusives built from the ground up for ps4, i haven't been all that impressed so far. I'll let the ps4 mature a bit more before making the plunge.

    I personally feel both sony and microsoft should've held off the ps4 and x1 till november 2014 and come out with stronger hardware specs than they did.

    ...I personally feel both sony and microsoft should've held off the ps4 and x1 till november 2017 and come out with stronger hardware specs than they did...

    They can always hold off on releasing and keep upping the specs, but they have to release a console at some point.

    The game looks the same on PC, PS4, and XB1. Using this game to judge the consoles would be stupid. The hardware in the new consoles is just fine.

    Even with the more powerfull hardware in the PS4 compared to the One, there isn't that much difference. Does anybody know what the lead platform is for this game?

    Most likely the PS3 or 360. The weaker platforms are 99% always the lead platform.

    Depends on what games youre talking about. Some games there isnt much difference and in other games the difference is very noticeable. At least that was my experience.

    No surprise that you disagree. Name one game that's not possible on PS3 with some dumbing down like Oblivion on 360 which was impossible on PS2/Xbox.

    If it needs dumbing down then its not possible on PS3 or 360. Since the thread is about graphics.
