Re: PS3 vs PS4 game differences

At the start there will not be a huge difference other then graphics but 8 months from now everyone that held out on getting a PS4 will be running out to get one as the gap widens between the PS3 and PS4

I believe fps is better, loading times are reduced, and I would expect there to be better draw distances. There's probably more stuff.


This probably sums up everything..probably.

Everyone will eventually get a ps 4 but I would rather have a good choice of games than the games that come out on the launch games and maybe get the games that come out at launch for cheap.

Compare the last few games on the PS2 to where the PS3 was about a year later after its launch. Expect the same type of thing. The realism is going to be a big factor. Such as instead of a tree waving in the breeze you will be able to see individual branches moving in different directions VS the whole tree moving in the same movement. Does not seem like a big deal until you see all kinds of things like this happening on screen and it just adds so much more the the realism game experience.

Think of it in pc settings as

Ps3- low- medium. Exclusives like the last of us and heavy rain - high.

Ps4- ultra

What is the real difference between games that are available on both the PS3 and PS4? Are the differences really that big if they are the same game on different consoles?


I'll give you one Game for example...

 

During a conference held by Nvidia in Montreal we learned further details on the differences we’ll see in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag between the next generation versions (including PC) and the versions on previous generation consoles, introduced by Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier

According to the presenter all the technology has been created on PC first and then ported to the consoles, and next generation versions will include the following visual goodies:

 

  • Dynamic foliage (foliage will also be far denser and rendered at a longer distance).
  • Rain/Wet Surfaces with 3D rain and particles independently lit. Puddles will be created as it rains. Rain will move with the wind.
  • Parallax Occlusion mapping will make objects smoother.
  • Screen Space Reflections with full reflections on surfaces, like the ocean.
  • Volumetric Fog with fog rendered through locations, impacted by lighting.
  • Lighted particles with smoke from cannon fire lit up over distance, such as ships battling at night.
  • High Resolution textures.
  • HBAO ambient occlusion.
  • Improved shadows.
  • Motion blur, depth of field, lens flares, god rays, etc.

Proof is in the pudding, lets see some screens!

Digital Foundry will soon be HAPPY to let you know the differences between current and next gen versions of titles, it's going to upset a few current gen owners here and on the web though (expect "Lazy Developers" to be a norm word soon despite the obvious power differences).
