Unreal Engine 4: PS4 vs PC real time demos

By Posted 1 Apr 2013, 06:24

Epic Games were once again in attendance at this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The company unveiled a brand new real-time demonstration of Unreal Engine 4 running on the PC and now we have the stunning video for you to watch, letting you see how the visuals compare to a real-time Unreal Engine 4 demo running on the next-gen PlayStation 4.

Next-gen really is the key word for Unreal Engine 4, as if you haven’t heard the big news – the Nintendo Wii U won’t support Unreal Engine 4 which is another massive blow to everyone. This is coming off the back of another recent blow, in the fact that Battlefield 4 or any other Frostbite 3 game will not be releasing on the Wii U either.

Back to Unreal Engine 4 though, as Epic has unleashed their new Infiltrator tech demo at GDC, giving a true glimpse in real-time into what the new technology will bring to the table in terms of cutting edge graphics. The result is very impressive as expected and can only be fully appreciated for those that can run the video with no problems in 1080p.

The big talking point over the last few weeks, is whether the Sony PS4 hardware really can be defined as next-gen or not compared to existing high-end PCs, especially since Sony has been trying to emphasize this very fact with the new PC-based architecture unlike the cell-based PS3 before it.

You can draw your own conclusions on what you think about this debate, by viewing the new Unreal Engine 4 demo which is now available in real-time running on PS4 hardware. Don’t forget to bump up the video quality in HD and it’s the same video that you may have already seen glimpses of during Epic’s initial UE4 reveal.

Which video looks the better? Is the Infiltrator video on PC the clear winner, or is the Sony PS4 hardware proving that the system can definitely handle true next-gen visuals?
