Admit it, you are all looking forward to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 being out so we can compare which version of cross platform games look best.
In the last crossover all the expectations were that the PlayStation 3 was going to destroy the Xbox 360 as it had the superior hardware (THE CELL!), and well because it was Sony. In the end however it took years for the PlayStation 3 to match the Xbox 360 in the cross platform parity.
This time around people are once again expecting the PlayStation to win this battle, but this time because of how well the console has been made with gamers in mind rather than trying to be a technical showcase.
One of the first and most exciting next-gen games on the chopping block is Watch Dogs and The Examiner has been chatting to people close to the game about exactly this and some of their comments are quite telling.
“Right now the frame rate we’re focusing on is a steady 30FPS, There’s always a balance, especially for open world, between the simulation and the rest.
I think for where we are, the most important thing is the steadiness and ensuring that it’s always capped the same so when you play it, it feels right.”
And they go on to state
“720p on PS3/360, 1080 on PS4, TBD on Xbox One”
“Big difference between last generation and next gen. You can see it. PC can hit up to 60fps 1080, but I think they are aiming for parity with PS4”
And while the Xbox One is on the ropes they are floored with
“Both hit 30fps easy. I think Xbox One suffers a few dips from 60fps. PS4 is pretty smooth. Definitive version”
So will the year of the PlayStation finally arrive just a few years past its original intended time? Will the PlayStation 4 be the world heavyweight champion in 2014 or will the Xbox One continue its incredible comeback and take the title into the cloud?
