With next-gen PS4 and Xbox One consoles now out, it’s time to take a look at just what a difference those resolution discrepancies can mean – if any. This week, we look at Assassin’s Creed 4 PS4 Vs Xbox One, with a graphics comparison showing the 1080p native game on PS4 compared with the 900p Xbox One version.
It goes without saying that a lot has been made about the resolution differences in next-gen consoles between the two systems, but the jury is still out on whether the advantage on PS4 versions are significant or not.
We have a gameplay video to show you now, giving you the exact conclusion on what the Xbox One version of the game looks like at 900p. To the average gamer, this is probably going to be mean nothing – but tell that to the tech enthusiasts out there who treat videos such as this one like gold dust.
On first viewing, the easy answer to say could be that there are no clear differences whatsoever between the two. Both versions look almost identical to each other, although some of you will probably disagree.
We’ve already seen feedback from some of you who believe that the PS4 version looks more ‘natural’. In comparison though, we’ve heard at the same time that the Xbox One build is more ‘sharper’ than PS4, despite running at a lower resolution.
Honestly speaking, we don’t think there is a ‘clear winner’ here. That is probably a good thing, despite the resolution differences. It will be interesting to see how other multi-platform games with resolution differences fair – we’ll be taking a look at other titles this week.
Watch the video below and tell us what you think. Do you agree that there is no clear winner here – is Xbox One more sharper than PS4 or not?
