Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4 Screenshots Look Beautiful; Runs At 1080p With Unlocked 60 FPS

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is an upcoming game from Monolith production, which is being published by Warner Bros. Games. The game is supposedly very demanding on PC requiring upto 6 GB of VRAM for its optional “Ultra” quality textures, and about 3 GB for “High” quality textures. These requirements might not be a surprise since most of the current generation PC ports demand a higher VRAM size for the best quality preset on PC.

NeoGAF user [NaK] has got his hands on an early copy of the game and he shared some lovely screenshots directly from the PS4, which you can check out below.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor was confirmed to be running at 1080p and 60 fps on the PS4, but does the frame rate hold stable 60 fps for the most part? According to the impressions from the reviews, this doesn’t appear to the case. The frame rate does appear to be 60 fps but it is also fluctuating. IGN’s reviewer confirmed that the game is 60 fps, but it is not constant 60 fps.

It is quite reassuring to see the PS4 version of the game holds up quite well compared to the PC footage of the game that we have seen so far. The demanding requirements of the game on PC means that it is atleast well optimized for the consoles this time around.

Are you excited for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor? Let us know in the comments below.

    60FPS master race :v

  • Arjun RD

    60 FPS unlocked I think this is not true or can anyone explain??!!

  • Arjun RD

    Hey Recently I saw a Video OF Shadow Mordor FPS Test footage On Youtube from Digital Foundry for PS-4 vs XBONE and they showed that unlocked 60 FPS is not true for PS-4 and that it ran just 30 FPS never more all the time how could this be!!???

  • Lara Croft

    I am pleasantly surprised. It looks pretty good.

  • Guest

    Im not usually into these games (LOTR) but this one looks really good. Im definitely going to give it a try. Hope its good. Will be a definite buy if it is.

  • Manoj Varughese

    That’s it…after Infamous and shadow fall…some neat next gen stuff to get my hands on. Can’ t wait!

  • Matt Kaya

    Lol high settings on pc at locked 60fps and low settings with unstable 60fps on ps4. They have to lower down the texture quality so the ps4 can run it at unlocked frame rate. Know your tech. Do you really think a $400 machine can even begin to hold up against a high end gaming rig? The answer is always NO and the difference is always day and night. How do i know? I play on both platforms.

    • andy

      You have the game on both platforms already? Well done you.

      • Matt Kaya

        I dont have to i have had enough comparisons.

        • skratchy

          Here’s what I learned about PC gamers: they like to sit in one spot. Where do they play their games? Same place they jack off.

          • Matt Kaya

            Sure thats not you?

          • gamer

            typical pc fanboy.
            the moron doesn’t know the games are optimized for consoles and on pc they’re just ports.
            And yeah i play on both systems, and no, the difference is not day and night

          • Matt Kaya

            Sure you do. Playing on your mums laptop doesnt count dckhead. Not all games are ports and even the worst port perform much better.( higher resolution, framerate, antialising and other extras)

          • GotNews4Ya

            Such an angry person over nothing.. You have a sense of superiority because you have a higher income bracket than me? Congratulations.. I can’t afford high end pc’s or their constant upgrades.. and My consoles always look pretty top notch.. and my 3-600$ each generation feels a lot more well spent..

            Not to mention that these games are so demanding on the PC because they have so much other things it needs to do at the same time.. the PS4 / Xbox One doesn’t need to compensate for that. It just gets to dedicate almost all of its ram towards making a nice game. That is why they are always close in comparison.. I don’t have a 4K Monitor or Setup.. and will never really see the difference, I bought a brand new Alienware computer 3 years ago.. and it struggles to run the Witcher at Max Settings.. WTF? lol..

          • Matt Kaya

            I never mentioned anything about who affords what. I am talking about capabilities of the platforms. Witcher is a demanding game, thats normal and Ram is just part of the memory and doesnt really have anything to do with graphical fidelity.

          • GotNews4Ya

            Every Time I read ANYTHING about making a video game.. they always say the most important part of a good game is have a LARGE amount of RAM so that they can put so many things into it.. Oh well..

          • Durka Durka

            Actullay the only one i see getting angry here is you guys he merely stated the facts.

            Alienware are overpriced crap

          • GotNews4Ya

            How did I get mad? or Angry? I didn’t say anything rude or anything that could be taken harshly, yet I am the Angry one? Okay..

            As for Alienware: Who Cares What you think?

            I enjoy the custom cases, and they are built for me.. and just because it is over priced compared to building your own.. Which I don’t want to try in fear of messing it up.. doesn’t mean the parts are any less efficient.. I mean they are the same as what other people put into their system.. just have the Alienware name that you hate.. Obviously you meant to just say Overpriced.

            Have a nice weekend.

          • Durka Durka

            “As for Alienware: Who Cares What you think?”

            its not what i think anyone who has build a pc in his life knows that alienware is overpriced crap.

            You can get the same thing in almost half the price if you build it yourelf.

            ” don’t want to try in fear of messing it up.. doesn’t mean the parts are any less efficient..”
            No you just pay more for them and you cant mess with the hardware to make it more efficient.

          • GotNews4Ya

            See, you took it upon yourself to read into my response more than you needed to.. That was the end of the discussion I am going to have with you on the PC end. I don’t care what you think about Alienware gaming systems. I enjoy them. I know they are over priced.. but as I stated.. I don’t know anything about building my own PC. It was not me being “angry”. It was more or less, I don’t care if you think Its over priced or not.. I like it, and that’s all that matters. Obviously I was wrong when I assumed I was entitled to my own opinion around here? Or are you going to just say that I am angry again and quote something else that you will read into.. :-/

          • Durka Durka

            i just dont see why anyone would be ok with overpriced systems.

          • GotNews4Ya

            lol.. I like how they look and I don’t want to build my own.. Obviously Alienware is still in business, so I am not the only one’s.. right?

          • Durka Durka

            Well there are shops that will put in the hardware you want, basicly build the pc for you. Unless you dont even know what hardware to buy, in which case, i understand you but thats the problem, they price the hardware more than they actually cost. Thats the problem with prebuilts and especially alienware. They rip you off

          • Hamburglar

            1. Alienware is “Dell” garbage. you cant afford a decent gaming rig and you bought an Alienware “lol” mind me asking how much you forked out for it?

            2. Factor in every game you purchase for $60 throughout a consoles lifespan. I bet it’s more than what you’d pay for a gaming rig and games you’d buy in the long run.. Robble Robble

          • GotNews4Ya

            LOL Nah.. New graphics cards come out all the time, and you need to upgrade them at least once every few years.. Computers as Top Notch, always top quality graphics are expensive.. and constantly run you up in money.. I never once said I couldn’t afford a Decent gaming rig.. I just said that I can’t afford to fork out for the best of the best all the time, if you plan to play the top of the line games on your rig at max settings or good quality, You are forced to upgrade or be left behind… Now, Why did You feel the need to jump into the conversation? He is already infuriated.. He really doesn’t need you to encourage him.. You’re just breeding Negativity.

            Also, PC Games at release are normally only 10$ cheaper.. and I don’t like to wait to purchase them.. I also said my main reason was that I don’t like to build my own PC, because I am almost 100% positive I would mess it up. That is not something you can change.. So why attempt to? I have debated about building them several times.. and always end on the same conclusion.. I’d rather stick to Console gaming.

          • Hamburglar

            Yes, new GPU’s come out all the time. Seeing as most PC gamer’s play @ 1080P you don’t need a flagship card to run 60+ fps..

            A perfect example currently would be the GTX 970 @ 1080p there isn’t a game the GTX 970 cant fully push, including Middle earth SOM. So, $330 for “top quality graphics” as you put it, isn’t to shabby..

            I wasn’t trying to breed more negativity, I simply don’t understand why anyone would buy an Alienware, PC building isn’t exactly rocket science.

            You can get most of the top games on steam for $30 or under, Steam also has over 3000 titles.. I’m sure that trumps the xbox1 and PS4.. While I’m on the whole steam topic, you could build a steam box for around $500 that would utterly destroy either console..Robble Robble

          • GotNews4Ya

            I will probably purchase a nice steam box when they launch.. but I’m not sold on the controller yet.

          • Durka Durka

            Too bad consoles have the same architeture as pc and the consoles dont have the same graphics as the pc version so it stands to logic that games are actually ported from high end pc to consoels and get downgraded.

          • Durka Durka

            Here is what i learn about console gamers, they are insecure with their purchauses and they like to live in delussions that they beat high end pcs.

      • Durka Durka

        He simply makes a prediction based on what we have seen so far.

        No game so far reaches the visuals of the pc version not even 1080p 60 fps games like wolfenstein and usually xbone runs game on 900p.

        As for textures? They are very selective, some are hd others are blurry even with the optional texture pack

    • Dikan45

      Nobody thinks that apart from the Sony fanboys and it’s PC fanboys like you that feel the need to tell people any chance you get! Why? Who knows maybe you’re insecure about something!!

      • Matt Kaya

        What can i be insecure about when i have a rig that pulls off games at 4k60?

        • Ward

          Penis size, since you’re turning this into a disk measuring contest.

          • Matt Kaya

            I wouldnt be too concerned about other peoples penis sizes. Unless ofcourse you are gay.

          • Gary Flowers

            4k is resolution, not disk

        • Yup

          Wow…..wow. Y’know, if you wrote a script about loser basement dweller Comicbook-guy types and had one of them say that the editor would probably ask you to take it out, it sounds like too much, like nobody’s actually enough of a loser to really say that.

          • Matt Kaya

            Wth r u talking about?

          • Durka Durka

            the comments on this site…. they reek of insecur dbaggery

        • Iphonedroid

          yes … but to playing what ??? the sims ??? minecraft ? age of empire ? hahahahahah 3k to play shit… is good for you .. is good for everyone..

          • Matt Kaya

            You really are clueless arent you? Apart from couple of exclusives its all on pc buddy. And for the ones i care about i got a ps4. Minecraft and sims… There goes your knowledge on pc gaming.

          • Gary Flowers

            PC has the most exclusives and 95% of the games consoles have. Including Shadow of Mordor. I’ll rape your gay little 12 year old ass because you’re retarded and no one will believe you

          • Durka Durka

            pc has more exlusives and games in general coming out every day than all consoles combined.

          • Matt Kaya

            Fck off you know nothing.

        • Dikan45

          How would I know what you’re insecure about? But your posts REEK of it!!!

        • Guest

          BS, you liar. And even the new NV cards cant run BF4 at a constant 60fps at 1080p on BF4, weak!

          • Matt Kaya

            I dont know what planet you are from but even a low to midrage pc can max out battlefield at 1080p60.

          • Durka Durka

            They can but apaprently running 900p high settings and 50 fps on consoles is better?

      • Durka Durka

        What is “that” you are talking about?

        I read his post and i dont get what is “that”

        The truth is ps4 doesnt have magical uber duper optimization and provides a similar perfomance to similar specs on pc.

        Is ps4 a beast? No is it outdated? Even sony said so. Will ps4 run this as well as a powerfull pc? Propably not.

    • elMAGiko

      I would saye the same, LoL… Learn some tech first and then judge and proclaim stupid concslusions. Even if PS4 has same RAM memory and CPU similar to PC the architecture works a bit different. On PC you got main bridge which transmits the information to the other components and vice versa. That means we’ve got a bottleneck. On PS4 CPU and GPU is an API unit which are connected and informations between components are traveling immediately from one to another. Thanks to that PS4 can squeeze actually more power than PC worth 400$ 😉 or even more. No a high end but its not a LOW for sure.

      • Matt Kaya

        How long did you have to google all that info? Unified or not its already outdated and cannot be upgraded therefore you will never ever get the same quality in graphics or performance. Yes it is set to low quality to reach higher framerates. Read the analysis for the tomb raider definitive edition, last of us or mgsv gz you will see in all cases they had to either lower down shadow quality, lower texture quality or turn of antialising to reach tbose frame rates. You know it or you ignore it to justify your purchase. Proclaim stupid conslusion? How butthurt are you?

        • Iphonedroid

          it’s always funny to read this statament from people… people that dont know nothing and dont have the correct skills and knowledge to talking about graphics .. api and optimizations.. talking only about pc pc pc pc.. pc is the best… pc are upgradable.. hahahahah

          just like you. hahaha……
          you read some shit article on beyond3d and think you know everything in deep ???? hahahahah…. read some forum posts and become a hardware designer and a coder optimizer ?? hahahah

          • Matt Kaya

            I gotta stop rubbing it on people’s faces then huh? Saves me from dealing with noobs like you.

          • Iphonedroid

            guy… my payroll is 86k per years.. i really know what are talking about … end of discussion for me.

            Who cares about your payroll? Speaking of insecurity…

          • Z k

            Well damn. Reading all that made my nether regions itch

          • Durka Durka

            I think he is stating the facts, HUR DUR ps4 OPTIMIZATION and TEH POWER OF DA CELL are the same garbage we heard 100 times over, the truth is that more or less similar hardware on pc provide similar perfomance. There wasnt a huge diffirence before that console hardware were weird, why would it be now they are so similar?
            Also more and more games get downgraded from tomb raider to mgs v.

          • Guest

            6GB of VRAM to run this sh*t? PCs are the most unefficient POS on the planet. WEAK!

          • Matt Kaya

            See the side by side comparison after the game release then spill your sht here. Even the comparisons wont be able to show you the flactuations in the unlocked framerate on the consoles.(xbone is probably still either 30fps or lower resolution. At least ps4 is unlocked so thumbs upfor that)

          • Durka Durka

            no 6gb of vram to run an optional texture pack not available on consoles.

        • Guest

          Dakan45? Wow!

          • Durka Durka

            nope thats me

            Nope, not him, try again. Not even close btw.

          • Durka Durka

            meh.

      • Thad Vanity

        As much as Matt Kaya is talking crap……..your talking way more! What’s a hardware API? You mean APU? API is software.

        Further more modern CPU’s have integrated memory controllers which means they don’t transit over the North Bridge. Couple this with the North Bridge having the bandwidth required as part of the PCI-E spec (x16, x8, x16+x16 etc) the motherboard was built with and your only bottlenecks are the actual components. Same as current consoles. The only benefit fully integrated SoC have right now due to their lower FLOPS is latency….

      • Durka Durka

        Yes but the thing is the perfomance is more less the same, ps4 cant magically beat superior hardware.

        • Matt Kaya

          Thats what i am trying to say but the article really annoyed me. People just simply to want you to talk smack about the purchase. A person who really expeienced thw best f pc gaming wouldnt even be arguing about it because its a fact that gaming rigs are way ahead of consoles. Everytime there is this argument they push forward all this unified memory and optimisation crap and that could only go so far.

          • Durka Durka

            ” People just simply dont want you to talk smack about their purchase.”

            Happens every gen, they pretend the next gen consoles trash pc and agressively push that propaganda when infact they dont.

        • Guest

          but it can with magic

          • Durka Durka

            magical optimization bs

          • Guest

            now, not “optimization”, you think im stupid? Im talking about with real magic fool.

          • Durka Durka

            lolwut?

    • keon

      You own both systems. So why all these yellings!?!?!

    • arbbles berglers

      you need a gpu with 6gb of vram to take advantage of the high res texture pack. meaning 99.9% of all gaming pcs can’t handle it, either.

      • Durka Durka

        99.9% of gaming pcs? More like 99%.9 of pcs in general. Id say 80% but not 90.9% it still is insane and useless a hd texture pack wont make a unimpressive unreal engine game look any better.

        Seriously as far as graphics go, those screenshos only had hd textures the rest are not imrpessive.

    • Durka Durka

      Quite possibly something like medium 1080p 60 fps or high with unlocked framerate.

      There is no way this goes anywhere near the pc vesrion.

    • TrueSpartan_Gaming

      price comparison is what handles those decisions though, don’t forget that. You cannot make a similar PC build that matches the EXACT specifications of the new gen consoles. I constantly hear that people have “equivalent” builds that are still generally $50-$100 more than the consoles, so it’s still more expensive in that minor sense, but then those same PC build DO NOT have an on board streaming capability, you’d have to pay another fair amount extra for the capture card on that “equivalent” pc build. Bottom line is that for the EXACT SAME specs for the new gen consoles, they are at a great price point, MUCH cheaper than any pc build, which is attractive to most people, and not the “PC Elitists”
      Just play the damn games on the console/PC of your choice, since what friends you have on that same device also helps sway those decisions. Get over this damn console/PC war already, I fucking hate this shit.

      • Thad Vanity

        You don’t and have not for some time needed capture cards. It’s all software…..so you can strike that “cost” from your list.

        But for that $100 more you have a FULL PC environment. There’s nothing a modern console can do that a PC cannot. There is a comically, stupidly long list of things a PC can do that a console cannot.

        Ignorance, simplicity and exclusives. These are the only reasons to buy a console. And that is fine. But lets not pretend that consoles are better value because they just simply are not.

      • Durka Durka

        “You cannot make a similar PC build that matches the EXACT specifications of the new gen consoles”

        True i tried once, i couldnt find a cpu as weak as the one on ps4, its even weaker than the ps3 cpu.

        I am talking about pc. Wtf r u on about? Who cares about xbox its even worse than ps4. Noob

        • Durka Durka

          the stupidity of those mountain dew dorritos eating dudebros is amazing.

      • The XBO version is 720p@60FPS.

    • Damon Tarklin

      I’m trying to move on to PC land myself. The biggest obstacle right now is all the contradictory information about what’s the absolute bare minimum for high end gaming and future proofing a rig. The GTX 9xxx was a no brainer until I saw the 6GB requirements for Shadow of Mordor. I also have to increase the VRAM to 16GB, buy a bigger SSD, and make sure that the system will be compatible when ever I can get around to buying a GPU with 6GB of VRAM or more.

      • Matt Kaya

        Dw about the 6gbvram crap. With a gtx980 you will max out all games at 1080p60. I play mine like a console its connected to a 55inch 4ktv with an xbox controller on. So in a way its like a NEXT GEN console. Its an amazing experience. I want to move onto 1440p120 gaming next though. 120fps is exteremly smooth and only can be experienced by seing one in person (there are retards who think the eye can only see 30fps)

        • Damon Tarklin

          Yeah, that’s what I was aiming for. 1080p60, but I was leaning towards the 970.

          What would be the downside of going with two 970s instead of one 980? Besides the price obviously.

          Are you really good with a controller? I would think it would be difficult to play with a 360 controller on PC without aim assist.

          I’m not really good with shooters. My K/D on COD might be 1/1 on consoles. I highly doubt I could play against PC players on a controller sitting on a coach.

          • Thad Vanity

            Controller vs Mouse is a predictable blood bath….. You might find your better with a mouse than you thought. But at the very least single player games are totally do able on the controller. It’s just Multi-player where the gulf becomes obvious.

          • Damon Tarklin

            The main reason I asked about that was because of all the talk about auto-aim on consoles for controllers and not on PC’s. Also, autoaim comes in a few different flavors. The magnet type, but also the type that slows you down when your crosshairs gets close to an opponent.

          • Matt Kaya

            I am suggesting in terms of future proofing your system. I heard they even have the overclocked versions of 980s now but couple of 970s would perform great aswell. As for the controller it depends on how good you are using it. I dont keep tracks of ratios but on titanfall i have been doing great. Using a mouse and keyboard wont make you any better if you are more comfortable using a controller.

          • Damon Tarklin

            Thanks, they have a thread on neogaf about the requirements for Shadow of Mordor. Basically they decided to use down sampling instead of AA so basically the 6GB requirement is because of downsampling + Ultra Res textures. So that’s pretty much 4k (as far as the stress you are putting on the GPU) + Ultra Res textures.

            Most people are just turning off downsampling and the images look pretty bad.

        • Thad Vanity

          You’d be wasting your PC doing that….. while there would be some difference it would be for the most part near imperceptible. The advantage of 120fps is not in motion fluidity its in response latency. Double the frames means half the input response time.

          You would be far better actually using the 4K part of that 4K TV you allegedly have…..
          But you’d know that if you weren’t just pulling numbers out of your ass.

          How old are you BTW? Because your weird psuedo knowledge bullshit makes it a hard guess.

          • Matt Kaya

            How is it psuedo knowledge? I do my research regularly as i care a great deal about graphics. I can say the same about you. There is a massive difference between 60 to 120fps just like 30 to 60. Obviously you need a 120hz monitor to know the difference. After seing one in motion at a friends house i noticed that i rather hve that fluidity than extra pixels. Still there are monitors out there at 1440p120, best of both worlds. I am 28.

            And I would be correct in that statement. Again, once you hit the >75fps mark your not gaining much motion fluidity your reducing response latency and its an easy thing to misinterpret as additional motion fluidity if you don’t understand how your brain interprets moving images. Think of it as a feedback loop.

            I don’t doubt people could run 4K games. I know I can. But you say two things. You say you play games at 4k60 then you say you play them at 1080p60, that you want to “upgrade” to 1440p120. What are you on about? If you could play at 4k60 you can sure as shit play at 1440p120. Its that simple.

          • Matt Kaya

            Do you have problem reading or understanding? I am after more frames and again you are just talking shit. If that was the case they wouldnt be making monitors running at 144fps which is the maximum right now. I have 4k60 but i am after 120fps. 120fps AGAIN is much more smooter than 60-70-80-90 fckever you wanna find. Experience it yourself then come talk to me, not just out of your ass.

          • Thad Vanity

            Thanks for your insight into nothing…..

          • Matt Kaya

            All those companies making 120-144hz monitors must be stupid then. Have you ever played on a 120hz screen? Ofcourse not beause if you did you would know the difference. Its not about the latency its the fluid motion.

          • Thad Vanity

            LMFAO.

            Do you understand the relationship between frames per second and latency? No.

          • Matt Kaya

            Lmao. The tech is obviously too much for you to understand that i am talking about fps and you keep talking about latency, what latency? 120fps on a 120hz monitor with a killer rig. Stick to consoles dude… I dont know what you are trying to prove here.

          • Thad Vanity

            LMFAO. Thanks for proving my point….. how blissful you must be!

          • Matt Kaya

            What point. Dont be delusional.

      • Durka Durka

        I feel for you the evil within requirments are complete bs/

        The 6gb is for a optional texture pack and you dont even need 6gb.

        It honestly doesnt make things look much diffirent.

    • Damon Tarklin

      They have the screens up on Neogaf. Low settings are really low. Much lower than the lod of the PS4 version. I would say the PS4 version is somewhere between medium-high. There might be some occlusion culling or some other stuff going on, but the differences are barely noticeable. The biggest difference is the framerate. PS4 framerate isn’t bad, but the PC is buttery smooth.

      Also, there is no AA on the PC version. They are using down sampling instead. So people are turning off the down sampling and using the Ultra res textures instead. It’s working fine with a few instances of stuttering.

    • Damon Tarklin

      They have the screens up on Neogaf. Low settings are really low. It looks much worse than the PS4 version. I would say the PS4 version is somewhere between medium-high. This might be do to the fact that the PC version doesn’t have any AA options. I don’t think I’ve seen a single screenshot with downsampling enabled on the PC even though that’s the only option available for dealing with jaggies. Everyone is too focused on using the best possible textures available.

      • Matt Kaya

        I am certain that it wont be high but could be medium. Look up on neogaf there are alot of tweak options and pc always has that extra anti alising options too. Fxaa is god given and as far as i know its requres less power than straight AA. We will have to wait for performance analysis once the game is fully out. Then we will really know the real differences.

        • Damon Tarklin

          Nope, there are a no aliasing options. Just downsampling. That was confirmed.

          • Matt Kaya

            There has to be a post process filter enabled by default. Some games do that. Look at all the other options, why would they leave that out?

        • Durka Durka

          its either high or medium-high, the game is graphically unimpressive to me. Textures are detailed and there is a decent geometry. Other than that its unimpressive.

      • Durka Durka

        You are wrong, the 6gb requirment, well its not even a requirement, anyway it is for a optional texture pack not available on consoles.

        Also from what i heard this game doesnt scale back to the old consoles on pc.

        • Damon Tarklin

          No, I’ve seen low settings. Pretty much all the details are gone. They did that for really old cards. People with a 580 can basically run the game with a mix of mid-high. On the PS4 it is high mostly with a bunch of options cut. Tessellation, for example, isn’t in the console version.

          • Durka Durka

            wanna link me that because i cant find it and i heard the game is 60 fps.

          • Damon Tarklin

            It’s on eurogamer.

            Add this to the domain:

            Sometimes they put comments in moderation if you post a link so that’s why I decided to do it that way.

    • FXAA is an NVidia technology. So, how do you suppose this found it’s way into MGS:GZ, on the AMD based consoles? (hint, it didn’t, you’re talking shite)

      Consoles have the advantage of having direct-to-the-metal programming built into their SDK’s. PC games have to go through Mantle and DirectX, which adds latency. Instead of a programmer talking to the GPU, you’re talking to a piece of software and asking it to pass the message long.

      It’s probably best you stop trying to tell people this because someone who knows what they’re talking about will very likely come and put you to right, and I guess it won’t be pretty.

      • Matt Kaya

        Maybe someday but you are not that person. I am talking aa in general. Look at you software engineer. Is that going to make games run at 1080p60 with aa and ultra details? Wait dont have to answer and humiliate yourself.

        • Hilariously enough I am a Software Engineer/Developer/Computer Scientist.

          And you said FXAA, thinking it was just a general AA technology. If you get that simple thing wrong, what else could you be wrong about?

          The fact that games console have direct hardware access, rather than going through a software API to attain this does mean they can squeeze more out of the console than a comparable PC could. The PS4 also has the advantage of having unified memory with GDRR5 which uses less power than DDR3 and has double the I/O capacity.

          A £350 PC cannot achieve anything near what a PS4 can.

          Does this mean a £350 console can achieve what an £800+ PC can? No, of course not. The only games that will look and perform the same on both the PC and games consoles are dull ports that simply port, and not add anything special for PC versions.

          The main issue here is how much of a prick you were being and trying to sound like you knew something.

          • Matt Kaya

            Yea asshole we can be anything we want to be in cyber space:) You will still come down to my point. Can any console compete against my rig with i7 3770, 16gbram, dual gtx 780ti oc? Nope. Can any console output 1440p let alone 4k resolution? It can hardly output 1080p. Spare me the lecture. There is only so much they can do with whag they have.

          • I don’t think anyone claimed that console games can run at 4k. So you’re like a man fighting a cause no-one started.

            And just because you can be a massive dickhead in cyberspace, it doesn’t mean you should be. I mean, if you really, really wanted to, you could cut your dick off and post pictures of it on Facebook? Should you? No. Can you? Absolutely.

          • Matt Kaya

            Whats with people and their obsession with dicks? Are you insecure or something? Hahahha Well Lets just enjoy whtever the fck we are running.

          • Maybe you should’ve taken that outlook in the first place 😉

            Game looks great on the PC as well.

  • Trim Dose

    Can’t wait to get this game!! osssummmmm 😀
