Well there you have it. The PS4 is an inferior POS, and cannot compete this gen.

 

:rolleyes:

EDIT: Nevermind.

 

I think Sony just got owned by MS and the consoles aren't even out yet :laugh:

Just to make sure, are these reviewers playing a final copy of COD on a retail console?

Maybe its an issue that can be patched day one when the console is released.

Still, its not the next gen first impressions anyone would want to have.

There's an NDA on the X1, which is why there's no review.

 

EDGE is saying that there are drops at checkpoints, but never in gunplay.

 

I won't bring up the interview with the IW dev.

I think people underestimate the engineers working in Xbox, heh.

Here's what Gamespot has to say about the PS4 version in their official review.

 

Ghosts is even more impressive on the next-gen hardware of the PlayStation 4. While the current-gen versions are just as competent as ever, rendering the chaotic shootouts at a smooth 60 frames per second, the PS4's next-gen artistry creates a much more immersive battleground. Those effects are most noticeable in the levels that emphasize lighting: the soft bokeh effects of floating embers on a burning oil refinery, or the way moonlight refracts and ripples while underwater. It's essentially the difference between a PC game running on high versus low settings. Each version is functionally the same, but all those extra effects add up to a more engrossing experience. (Note: Our review of the Xbox One version remains under embargo until a later date. Activision did not provide access to the PC and Wii U versions.)

From Giant Bomb review

The PlayStation 4 version of the game looks very sharp and feels very effects-laden, with a lot of good-looking lighting and reflections. It has a long draw distance, while the current consoles occasionally fog things up a bit to reduce the amount of geometry on-screen at a given time. The campaign has an early moment where you come up and see the state of the world by looking at a shot of the Hollywood Sign, which is way off in the distance.

[...]

Additionally, the PlayStation 4 version has a handful of noticeable dips in its frame rate. This usually seemed to happen when a lot of smoke or other effects were on-screen, but occasionally it occurred in multiplayer for reasons I couldn't even guess at. Judging graphics on a brand-new platform can be tough, since we don't have a lot to compare it with at this point, but I will say that I had hoped that it would look a little better across the board. Whether that says more about my expectations or the quality of the game will have to wait until we see more next-generation games in action.

Its strange that some reviewers would be seeing frame rate issues and others only see it at say checkpoints.

How is that possible when everyone is using the same setup?

From what I'm seeing the pc version has some pretty serious issues as well. I don't think it's exactly a problem with the PS4. Seems to just be an overall poorly optimized game. Who'd have thought..

 

And a 40gb install..what were they thinking with that.

There will most likely be patches released to fix this problem anyways.  It's kind of how games are now anyways: "Get it mostly running, patch it later!".

The issue seems to be less with the console, more with the fact that the game isn't very good.

I've been wondering how they've managed to bloat CoD up to that kind of size when a game like CoD has no business being that big.

40GB?

 

And I thought BF3 + all extra maps was big.

 

What the heck have they put into the game? Super-amazing dog and fish textures?

My working theory is 75% of it is fluff stuffed in there to deter piracy. Who in their right mind is going to download a game that requires 40gb? It sure as hell isn't textures because the textures look like they belong in a 5 year old game.

I've seen a lot of youtube reviews of this game on pc and people seem to really be panning it from many angles. Some are bored with the gameplay, some are turned off by the low res textures, etc, etc.

Most seem to agree that BF4 is the more visually demanding (i.e. higher quality) game easily.

If that is true, it might explain why neither the PS4 or X1 could hit 1080p/60 for BF4.

40gb won't deter piracy

For that matter, a lot of PC's are struggling 1080p/60 for BF4 high settings

 

In order to achieve an average frame rate above 60 fps you need an I7 4770 and a Geforce 770 at an estimated cost of 700 bucks for CPU +  GPU alone..

Curious though if the mantle support coming in a later patch is going to be pushed to X1 / PS4 as well

I'm aware of that. But considering devs and publishers keep insisting on all kinds of stupid DRM that never works I'm sure bloating up the download size of the game to deter people from pirating is something that has been discussed at one point in time or another.

 

Though I honestly don't think that's what's going on with this game I still wonder what is included in that 40gb. Much better looking games have had smaller install requirements by a large margine so it can't be textures or meshes.

yeah, no idea why its as large as it is for how mediocre it looks compared to other games with much smaller installs

Probably just lack of compression. The developer now has blu-ray and hard drives on all the next gen consoles. So they don't really need to invest in compressing textures, audio etc.
