The Division – The console comparison that we had to make

2 min read


By now, you’ve most likely had your fill of The Division. But for some reason, console pissing contests always manage to draw in a sizable crowd. This past weekend, I was tasked with mapping every single texture in The Division. All the bump-mapping, instructed to look any artifacting, jaggies and pop-in textures. Naturally, I said testicles to that idea and did the real console comparison test that you’ve all been waiting eagerly for.

I’m talking about Jumping Jacks! The most strenuous of physical exercise activities, put to the test on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Of course, only one console could jump Jack the best:

And I still have no idea which console did it best. Although I’m pretty sure the Wii U comparison was cheating. The Division is out in March. Expect an even more stringent set of tests in the pipeline, as we examine which console version is the best possible version of The Divsion, because these things truly do matter in the grand scheme of the universe.

For more info on The Division, check out our rather handy game hub. Or go do some more Jumping Jacks and see how that compares to the console versions.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • The Grand Admiral Chief Prime

    There is no Division, there is only XCOM2

  • Hammersteyn

    Hehehe nice video Darryn

  • WTF?

  • Still a better story than The Division.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      You mean Destiny?

      • Hammersteyn

        Division is a prequel.

      • Snap, no, really. That’s what I’d do to the disk.

        • Hammersteyn

          It’s your Destiny to apply Division to the disc.

          • Hammersteyn

            fixed, f**k my life!

          • hahahahahahahaahahahah FAIL is EPIC!

          • Hammersteyn

            This is what happens when you ramble a comment off before you need to Alt + tab

          • Pariah

            Makes me curious as to what the original was. XD

  • Original Heretic

    Here I am, sitting behind my desk at work, attempting to keep a grin the size of…something really big…of my face. No sound, but damn, the mere thought of what might be said is enough to induce peals of laughter.

  • I had some graphical glitches after opening the map on PC, that forced me to restart the game or my GPU threatened to melt itself.

  • Guava_Eater


    • Hammersteyn

      Could’ve been Darryn in his mankini doing jumping Jacks?

  • Ghost In The Rift

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Off topic: – This ad, what is the link between Telkom and star wars?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      You can blow up Telkom if you know how to take down their shields?

    • ElimiNathan

      The connection between them is like anyones Telkom connection on an average day, non existent
