Borderlands: The Handsome Collection PS4 vs. PS3 vs. PC Direct-Feed Screenshot Comparison

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is a remaster of Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Prequel for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game’s visuals have been updated to run at 1080p resolution on the current generation consoles, in addition to having almost all of the DLCs released for Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Prequel.

The question on everyone’s mind might be if this collection is a worthy remaster or just a quick crash-grab? The resolution has been upgraded to 1080p and the game now runs at 60 fps, but are there any other graphical enhancements in this collection compared to the PC release?

First up is a slider comparison between the PC, PS3 and PS4 version.

In term of performance, it appears that while Borderlands 2 is a pretty good port on the PS4 and Xbox One, The Prequel has issues on both platform including screen tearing on the Xbox One and frame rate drops on both consoles. Gearbox has confirmed that they will fix the screen tearing in a new update on the Xbox One.

Let us know what you think about this comparison in the comments below.
