Battlefield 4 PS4 Vs Xbox One graphics to end debate

In continuation of our graphical comparisons, it’s time to look at another PS4 Vs Xbox One multi-platform game showdown. Earlier this week, we showed you how Call of Duty Ghosts looked on both next-gen platforms, so now it is only right that we take a look at how Battlefield 4 fairs in comparison.

Right away, you’ll need to know that Battlefield 4 is running at 900p on PS4 and only 720p on Xbox One. It’s disappointing that both games cannot hit full 1080p HD resolution, but you’ll be pleased to hear that both still look fantastic in the graphics department and 10 times better than what was possible on the console versions of Battlefield 3.

How does the PS4 slight advantage carry over though against the 720p version of Battlefield 4 on the Xbox One? Like other Xbox One multi-platform games though, we’re hearing that Microsoft’s version is sharper than the PS4, although the PS4 version runs a lot more smoothly.

A video we have added below gives you an analysis from the experts over at Digital Foundry. They have used the final code of the game, ie after all of the day one updates for both systems to determine which version runs best.

You can also witness frame rate drops in this comparison, showing moments when both versions cannot maintain a steady 60FPS. Would you agree that the Xbox One version of the game is sharper than PS4, or do you think the opposite?

Although we hear many are saying that the PS4 is the better version overall, we think both versions still look great. There’s no debate that the PC version is the better graphically, but just think about how poor console versions of BF3 were in terms of cut content from PC, compared to console versions of BF4.

It’s a massive improvement either way you look at it. Enjoy the game and let us know your own opinions on the fierce debate that we still see going on.
