The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Xbox One Version Looks Great, Compared With PC Version

witcher-3-343

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt is now available in the Middle East, as stores are selling the PS4 and Xbox One version ahead of the official release. As it is the case with such broken street dates, we are getting Livestreams of the game from various users on the PS4 and Xbox One.

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Xbox One version has been curiously missing from most of the official release footage but now that the retail version is in the hands of users, we are finally getting a look at how the Xbox One version looks and we can have an idea of how it compares to the PC version.

If you want to take a livestream of the game, you can head over to The Witcher 3 Twitch directory. There is also an Xbox One stream live on Twitch but it will get likely taken down.

You can check out a comparison between the Xbox One version of the game and the PC version revealed by IGN in April. Keep in mind that the comparison seen below is not direct-feed but it is rather taken from a compressed stream.

The most obvious difference here is in the character model. PC version has a higher quality character model compared to the Xbox One. The lighting also seems to have been toned down slightly, with the character models sporting a higher quality of shadows and ambient occlusion on the PC version. The cloth textures in general also seem to be a step back from the PC version, which shouldn’t be surprising considering the difference in hardware.

Of course, no one had expected the Xbox One version to match the PC version of the game, but it is nice to see that even if we compare the Xbox One version to the PC version maxed out, the game still looks great on the Xbox One.

Let us know what you think about this The Witcher 3 comparison in the comments below.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases May 19 for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.

  • Truthseeka

    Impossible

  • marcdj

    What happened to PS4 version? It’s a mess!

  • criogen

    PS4 version is by far the worst with frame rate drops and pop in!

    • Truthseeka

      worst version is already spoken for.

  • Necromonger

    Was the pc version on ultra low settings on a 7 year old laptop ?

    Or has the game been downgraded so much you cant tell the diffrence anymore ?

    Lets find out within 10 days when the shitstorm hits the revieuws.

  • Onslaught

    Bitch, CDPR dev said that he actually prefers to play on PC with minimum settings than the xbone version. This comparison is laughable. Just wait and see in 9 days. πŸ™‚

  • Jaime Jorn

    haha. this entire comment section is absolutely awful.

  • jay

    At steam only 55$ how much for the Xbox?

  • Gruntsvigalots

    Why do people even debate if PC is better?
    If the consoles do not have the same hardware as a PC they are not going to be better period.

    The limited space of a console can not compare to the larger size of a PC…hence low-end hardware to fit the consoles smaller space and size…

    I should not have to spell it out..but those who claim other-wise need education.
    By the way I own a PC, XB-one, PS4 and the PS4 beats X hands down on every issue….Like Angry Joe said about TESO…….”You f-ed it up” and that applies to just about everything Microsoft does as they have the bully-on-the-internet attitude about the biggest, badest…we do not need to make great sheet because you lame consumer will buy any piece of junk.

  • Truthseeka

    PC version destroys the full HD 1080p PS4 version and the non full HD 900p Xbox One version

  • DLConspiracy//

    Can you still play the game on any system? Cool. Play it where you can. It’s going to be a great game. If you need to feel like you have the best looking game buy it on PC period. There is no substitute. Tired of fanboy ism and everyone else should be too.

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    LOL, nope. The PC version is clearly superior, there’s nothing great about it compared to PC, nice try though.

  • OC Guy

    A couple of these stills I liked better on the X1…A couple I liked better on the PC. I have a feeling that it is becasue no matter what the fan boys say the game on all platforms will look and play pretty much the same.

  • dead fanboy

    Sony fanboys are the worst this time around. They’re like the libertarians of the gaming world. Very pathetic and I feel sorry for these corporate puppets.

  • Taboo

    I was going to get this for my PS4 but then I saw a stream and sadly it suffers from screen tearing and drops in frames at times.

  • Guest

    To be honest, I think the reason PC gamers bash on Xbox and PS4 gamers so much is because they are just butthurt that Xbox and PS4 is getting closer and closer to PC’s graphics..

  • Lazz

    Lol the title is very misleading..
    in actual fact its no where near as good as the pc version. But a great title to entice console players into reading none the less.

  • aaron

    Wow, just play the game on whatever console and enjoy it, forget the fanboy comments!!! Its a game people!!! Its just a @#$#$@% game!!!!

  • kolr bolr

    1080p are meaningless if other parameters are different!

  • kolr bolr

    It’s official!!! XboxOne version looks much better than PS4 version !

  • The One

    Sony fangirls wanna talk about power, yet the PS4 still doesn’t have a AAA only exclusive, at the promised 1080p 60fps. Sony lied to you morons.

    Remember when Sony said, 1080p 60fps was going to be the standard?? Lmao! The Xbone has already gotten a AAA exclusive at 1080p 60fps. Where’s that PS4 game at?? XD

    • Truthseeka

      PS4 has the highest rated exclusives.
      You mad

      • The One

        So because people have a different opinion to mine, I’m mad? LOL you kids of today put so much emphasis on review scores and shit. It’s fucking sad. XD

        SONY HAVE BEEN LYING TO YOU MOFOS SINCE THE START OF THIS GEN, AND YOU SONY FANGIRLS HAVEN’T SAID SHIT ABOUT IT.

        WHERE’S THAT FREE PS+ EDITION OF DRY CLUB? WHERE’S THAT AAA PS4 EXCLUSIVE ONLY, THAT RUNS AT 1080P 60FPS?? WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY?? WAKE UP YOU COCK SUCKER. THIS “SONY ARE FOR THE GAYMERS” IS BS, AND YOU KNOW IT.

        And breathe… ^_^

        • Truthseeka

          Yeah he mad

          • The One

            What gave me away, the cap locks? Crawl back up mummy’s ass kid. XD

  • cucci scartaxi

    Xbox One version is better than PS 4 version, more details, better light!

  • andy

    PC version screens captured at 900p too???

  • Dirkster_Dude

    I noticed better lighting on the characters models, but if I wasn’t looking at a comparison of the 2 different platforms I wouldn’t have noticed or cared. In fact I still don’t care. Any fool who does care is more worried about a bullet point on a piece of paper than actually enjoying the game on their platform of choice.

  • Guest

    Yuck, I don’t even think the game looks good. And the X1 ver. is already starting to look low res.

  • Dynasty2021

    PC clearly wins here, but come on.

    Comparing STREAMED videos?

    Wait until someone does the 4K comparison. Sorry, not a comparison as the laughable consoles cant do that can they.

  • jopop

    for me looks like shit πŸ™‚

  • vapidwolf1

    I don’t get all these compare consoles to pc especially when they use a machine that’s higher powered, surely they should use a pc of the same spec as ps4 and x1,is it because the pc version wouldn’t look very good next to the consoles if they did this.if a game like the order was run on a pc with the same specs as a ps4 my guess is it would probably melt.

  • PachterStation

    As always, a major factor that always gets missed is the quality of the TV you’re using. Having a Panasonic and LG TVs (both 1080p LED), there’s quite a big difference between the 2. TV settings also plays a major part. But between all 3 versions (more so Xbox One versus PS4), there’s very little in it. But it’s a sad case of affairs when people get off on this sort of thing. If a game had crap or average graphics but was great to play, would you still moan? Probably.

  • zainfazal3000

    It will be on par with the PS4 version. The only difference will be the 900p resolution which may or may not be noticeable depending on your TV

  • Aurizen

    There isn’t a ps4 compairson?

  • Kronos0999

    If this is the case,then PS4 will look better than PC

    • Amith Thomas

      dat logic πŸ™‚

  • Thijs Van Abs

    I really wonder how the XO compares to the PS4 version. The developers keep claiming it looks nearly identical to the PS4 version except for resolution. So that would mean in terms of lightng, LOD, characters models and so on should be similar to PS4. The footage i saw of PS4 looked really good. I only have XO, so that’s good news for me. PC clearly wins in this comparison though, but who ever doubted that?

    • Truthseeka

      And PS4 clearly wins vs the xbox

      • Thijs Van Abs

        It wins when it comes to resolution, but from what i am reading in user impressions who saw good quality streams of both versions, XO is really on par with PS4 version except for yes….900p vs 1080p. It remains to be seen how the framerate will be. In some cases with multiplatform games, the XO had the edge when it came to framerate and anisotrophic filtering as well. PS4 is definitely not always the clear winner.

        • Truthseeka

          On topic… being 1080p on the PS4 vs 900p on The xbox one is a automatic win for the PS4 version from the start no matter how you slice it. Be happy it was delayed because it was going to be 720p on xbox.

  • Mats Leven

    pc > ps4 > xbone

    xbone looks great but ps4 is better ,
    and pc is best

    • kreator

      And yet, my dick is still bigger than your’s!

      • And yet, my dick is still bigger & thicker than your’s!

      • Guest

        Aaahh poor baby is mad. So he’s got to resort to immature ish.

    • Fay_Z

      correction, the ps4 version just has more pixels. the side by side comparison it will show the same thing, with ps4 looking slightly sharper… talk about 50% more power lol

      • vapidwolf1

        Surely if it has more pixels it would look better no matter if it’s slight,you do know that 900p v1080p there isnt a difference of just 180 pixels right?

        • Fay_Z

          side by side yes you will see it.. slightly but it’s no means a good enough reason to pick one over the other. if i really wanted the best i’d go all out on pc. console comparisons are just knit picking.

          • Guest

            And your argument is flimsy.

          • julius collins

            They are just numbers that make people feel better. These numbers meant nothing to them last generation or the one before that.

          • vapidwolf1

            If you have both consoles it’s an extremely good reason,1080p is true hd were as 900p is not,good enough reason for me

          • JerkDaNERD7

            But that shouldn’t factor in for your purchase. The point is playing games you like. If you like exclusives on Ps4 more than XOne exclusives you buy PS4 and vice versa. The hardware specs between either is NOT significant factor to judge off of purchase. If youre really into resolution and frame rates, buy a PC. Never have been an issue for decades now. Also this is new generations right? Let’s see real next gen gameplay and AI. Not this BS talk of 1080p/30 frame rates with mediocre graphics settings. I hit 1080p/60fps at ultra! Shame!

        • Bilal Prince- Ali

          he doesnt understand how resolution works bro lool.. he quite clearly thinks that it really is a difference of 180 pixels between 900p-1080p lool, just look how he replied to you! @vapidwolf1:disqus

          • X-BOT Serial#69

            If there is no difference why do 1080p tvs exist? I’ve never seen a 900p tv.

          • OC Guy

            That was just the standard that was chosen. Before full 720p HD plasmas came out years ago manufacturers didn’t even show their resolution. They were industry secrets. Now I know why.They probably did some research and realized how moronic some people get over the slightest differences that that have little impact on visual fidelity.

          • Bilal Prince- Ali

            why are you asking mee i KNOWWW there is a difference loool

        • Truthseeka

          AFAIK Its a resolution difference of over 40%

        • William Fenton

          As well as being much lower res, it also means the game isn’t running at true native res to the monitor, or has to be upscaled– which has a negative effect further on IQ.

      • Jecht_Sin

        It has more than 40% more pixels. Enough to justify the 40% more power.

        • X-BOT Serial#69

          The PS4 has a 50 percent stronger GPU and faster RAM. Xbox fan boys don’t understand how hardware performance and games work with diminishing returns. The PS4 version could have 50 percent more pixels, probably a 10 percent better frame rate, with 10 percent better draw distance, and 10 percent better AA and Xbox fan boys would be like, “Bu, bu, bu, but where the 50 percent better hardware?”

          • U wot m8??

            This is some high level autism.

          • chillgreg

            Check out the PS4 mess for Project Cars then gaybot

          • OC Guy

            What you don’t understand is every time you bring that up, especially when you have no idea what any of it means is that you sound even worse than those fanboys you are trying to diss. Maybe little boy needs to grow up a bit? Just a tiny bit?

          • JerkDaNERD7

            So you’ve just approved how insignificant the difference is in “playing games”? Do you sit there staring and glorifying the 50% difference in hardware?! lol! Enjoy your games and leave the technical jargon to those who actually make efforts on their due diligence.

        • OC Guy

          What? Pushing pixels alone does not take up significant “power”…there is fps and lighting that will put a big hit on processing…The amount of polygons being used also has a lot to do with it. How much if any AA adds to the amount of power being used/needed. There is far more “math” being generated that goes well beyond just pixels. The fact that the X1 will be most likely identical outside of the resolution just goes to show how similar the two consoles are with the PS having a slight (ye, just slight) overall advantage in the power department. Please stop trying to sound like you know what you are talking about when it is painfully clear you do not.

        • JerkDaNERD7

          You miss the point COMPLETELY! Still no 40% (not even 10%) in visual fidelity difference from Ps4 to XOne. This generation is HILARIOUS! These arguments use to be Nvidia and ATI fanboys and it all made sense. Come back when you can claim a 50% power difference, doubt you’ll EVER!

        • zainfazal3000

          so the only thing that determines power is resolution? lol okay.

      • Guest

        but 1080 is 44% more pixels….talk about ignorant and stupid lol
        And aren’t you dumb fanboys ashamed and seriously letdown that your precious little POSbox can even do that? (hit 1080 on this game). You people are sad. Your brand loyalty is so strong that you cant see that you are rooting for the inferior system and hating on the superior one. You people are regressive.

        • Jason Martinez

          say, “You people” one more time…….

          • X-BOT Serial#69

            You people

        • OC Guy

          Wow, you really do sound like a sad little person…Good thing your PS4 keeps you warm at night because that’s all you are ever going to get lil’buddy! Anyone who goes through life feeling superior over what video game system they decided to buy deserves the crap life they obviously have! LOL!

      • andy

        You know what that means? The next game by CD Projekt Red may push PS4 too while maintaining a 1080p 30fps resolution again. At least we can see (yet again) that PS4 has achieved the maximum output for consoles.

        Now on Xbone, how do they push their next game to go even further when their last game only ran at 900p? Do they drop the resolution again for the console to keep up or do they have to make other sacrifices? Mortal Kombat X is another perfect recent example. Xbone could only achieve 900p 60fps and ON THE UNREAL ENGINE 3 too!!!! What does that mean for the next game that studio does on the Unreal 4 engine? What will have to be compromised to bring an actual next gen looking game to Xbone?

        These are the questions you NEED to be asking as an Xboner, which you clearly are.

        • DLConspiracy//

          If someone needs to justify their game purchase sure. Otherwise play the game and stop acting like the PC Master race. Consoles are sacrificing frames for resolution.

      • Truthseeka

        More pixels equals better picture

      • William Fenton

        People don’t miss what they don’t know.

        Watching highly compressed videos doesn’t give a good idea at all of the differences.

    • Cenk Algu

      hahaha even CDProjekt mentioned something like the XO version can look better due to having same pipeline coding with the PC:)

      The comparison is bullshit while those shots taken from a non quality twitch stream LoL!!

      • vapidwolf1

        Yeah it does look better than that,the conan review looks great,which is not as some people would have you believe the pc version played with an xbox controller,confirmed by the devs on twitter,as for this pc pipeline thing you speak of I have no idea what your on about πŸ™‚ I’m getting it on ps4 anyway don’t even know why I’m bothered lol

        • Cenk Algu

          yeahhh better not bother because the PS4 has another API language while the devs theirselves confirmed that deveolpin on XO is extremely similar for them due their being a PC dev.

          • Guest

            Yes and we’ve all seen what a crappy API DX is hence why MS has been franticly trying to sucker you fanboys into thinking that DX12 is going to somehow be different. When in reality, DX12 is based on the X1s API.
            But keep looking stupid and desperate and saying stupid ish, it serves your dumb fanboy arse well.

          • Cenk Algu

            I have no time for ignorant idiots like you sorry. Dx12 what XO have to be developed with. With dx12 the XO will wipe out your precious PS4.

          • vapidwolf1

            Your a funny guy,are people still going on about this dx12 thing for the x1,first it was the cloud,then some secret elves inside the x1 just waiting to turn on its true power,you’ve got what you’ve got,no need to believe in fairy stories

          • Cenk Algu

            I have no fairy tales only you Sony fans believe in a fairy tale that the PS4 is %50 more powerful.LoL!!!.I did not know the truth hurts that much:) I have heard what DX12 is directly from devs mouth.No need your misrable comments here;)

          • awesomeMo

            I have a PS4 and I don’t believe in that fairy tale. I do believe in the one that is 40% stronger though. You know, the one with the correct number.

          • Truthseeka

            The clueless is strong with this one.

          • vapidwolf1

            I’m a games fan I do prefer the ps4 this is true but always have preferred the ps over xbox,it’s down to personal choice,only a moron would believe the dx12 would do anything regarding games on the x1,oh but wait…… Ha ha ha ha ha nobhead.

          • Cenk Algu

            You people will eat the crow very soon.

          • vapidwolf1

            Yeah let’s eat some crows,ha ha ha ha proper mental

          • awesomeMo

            You clearly have no knowledge of hardware or software. Dx12 will not affect the Xbox One graphics one bit. The reason the Xbox can’t get to 1080p is because the limitations the console has with its shading units. Below is the quote from the Witcher 3 dev himself:

            β€œI think there is a lot of confusion around what and why DX12 will
            improve. Most games out there can’t go 1080p because the additional load
            on the shading units would be too much. For all these games DX12 is not
            going to change anything,”

            β€œThey might be able to push more triangles to the GPU but they are not
            going to be able to shade them, which defeats the purpose. To answer the
            first question, I think we will see a change in the way graphics
            programmers will think about their pipelines and this will result in
            much better systems hopefully.”

            Just face the facts, that you have the inferior platform for this generation. Maybe the Xbox Two can remedy that issue for you in 2020 or beyond.

          • Truthseeka

            Xbox 720P

          • Truthseeka

            DX 12 is nonexistent with weak hardware.

          • vapidwolf1

            What does this have to do with anything,language,Api I don’t care for such things the ps4 is the better console version so I will be buying that one

          • Truthseeka

            Similar in language not hardware power. The Xbox One is like a 5 year gaming laptop.

      • Jecht_Sin

        There is no eSRAM in the PC pipeline for starting. Or you really believe that one can port a PC game to the Xbone and it will run immediately as well with the same performances (given equivalent HW, obviously)?

        Still, I’ve never heard such blasphemy. CDPR made it clear that they were going to optimize the game on each different platform. The last thing they want is to piss off the console’s largest user base.

      • Guest

        Oh shut up you ridiculous fanboy. The fact is that the X1 will have nothing that looks better than the PC version, and will even look worst than the PS4 version if all things are the same except for that lowly 900p res.

        • Cenk Algu

          Lol idiot I never said XO will look better than PC. emmm it will look better than PS4

          • awesomeMo

            XO will look better than PS4. The last time someone said that and it was true, was never. Haha, whatever makes you sleep at night.

          • Truthseeka

            It can’t look better then the PC or Ps4 due to its over 40% lower resolution.

    • Taboo

      Sorry but when it comes to consoles I would rather much play on the version that plays smoothest which seems to be to Xbone version. PS4 has screen tearing and drops in frames at times.

    • Croc

      Who gives a crap, real gamers have a great PC rig, a PS4, and an XBone…

      • Jon Spang

        This, I have both consoles so I can play both exclusives, and also play with friends with either console, and I have to say that the resolution becomes very difficult to tell apart at times for games I have on both consoles, the biggest difference between the two for me is that I will have moments in the in game menu’s, and UI menus on xbox that I can only explain as a pause or lag after selecting something, this is non existent on ps4, but during normal game play I have to look at the controller to remember which console I’m playing.

        • RaginPwner

          Agreed. However, I also find the PS4 UI is much more intuitive than Xbox One’s. I find myself constantly frustrated using the damn Xbox. This all from starting this new gen off with both systems at the get go and coming from a 360. I have my gaming rig just for when I really want to push graphics or PC exclusives, but I find myself playing about 95% of the time on the PS4. It’s just a great little system of what is currently being offered. I do find it funny that these xbox loyalists are so attached to the brand they can’t objectively approach the new gen.

          • RaginPwner

            I sure said “I find” a lot.

    • OC Guy

      Got news for you . The X1 is the best version. Why? That is the version I will be purchasing and therefor that is the only one a care about. Guess what again, the person who buys it for PS4 will also be getting the “best version”… You know what else, the person who buys it for PC will also be getting the best version.

      • Truthseeka

        Keep telling yourself that!

    • DLConspiracy//

      It’s important to know that the PS4 is better. Or else everyone won’t feel entitled to put people down for their purchase.

    • Mr. Wolfy

      the paystation 4 looks almost exactly the same

      • Truthseeka

        Spoken like a true Xbot

  • ChatWraithShichi

    I’d like to see ultra though. Gonna wait till it’s out and someone does a max-settings supersampled example.

  • Malcolm Jamal

    This was captured from a livestream so what i will actually be playing will look better.

  • Gangstalicious

    Pc looks significantly better but the footage is from a compressed stream and still looks great so there should be no worries.
    Xbox owners always knew they’d get the worse looking version

  • Spencer

    That’s actually a pretty significant difference.

  • Something is up with the XO capture device. Check out the very bottom edge of each XO screenshot. Pixels are smeared. Might want to re-capture/upload for an accurate comparison (assuming that those pixel-smears were the only things inaccurately captured).

    • benbenkr

      The screenshots here are not direct feed shots. They are from streams, so obviously there are artifacts.

    • Guest

      Oh shut up, you “victim”. The fact is the PC version is better, period.

      • Nobody said the PC version wasn’t better. All I’m saying is that if you want an accurate comparison, the shots need to be retaken. What we’re seeing here isn’t representative of the XO version. Get over it.

        • Truthseeka

          Rofl

        • Buddydudeguy

          The xbox hase horrible textures and lighting compared to PC. Get over it. Consoles suck.

          • And again, nobody is comparing the textures or lighting. There’s nothing to “get over”. I’m talking about legitimate comparisons. Period. Full stop.

            If you could (somehow) get over your massively inflated ego, you’d understand this.

            “nobody”? I am. As are many people. The PC versions textures and lighting are superior. That is a legitimate comparason, it has nothing to do with my “ego”, and that’s what you need to “get over”.
            Glad to clear that up for you.

          • Well you can talk about it all you want, but you can’t come into my conversation and boast about something that isn’t being discussed and call it a part of the conversation. I’m not talking about anything other than the inaccurate capture.

            It’s basic English. Learn it.

        • William Fenton

          It’s smeared because it’s probably being upscaled,and the textures are lower resolution. The lighting is also extremely flat compared to PC.

          Damage control to the ring.

          • If you think a selective smear of pixels is a result of upscaling (despite the fact that neither image reaches a pixel range of 1920×1080 pixels), then you have no idea how upscaling works.

          • William Fenton

            Oh that banding, who cares about that? As if that’s any kind of point. It is an accurate comparison because you can see everything that counts…. clutching at straws methinks.

            As I said, damage control to the ring.

      • Guest

        Yes we get it, PC is better, now shut up… At the end of the day nobody cares, I’ll be enjoying the game just as much as you on the Xbox one with slightly worse graphics…

        • OC Guy

          The Graphics won’t be “worse” they will simply be displayed at a slightly lower resolution. where 95% of gamers would not be able to tell the difference if they were playing it side by side with another version.

          • Buddydudeguy

            hahahahahaa

      • OC Guy

        How so? Because you say so? I mean do you really have such a pathetic life you have to come on here behind your keyboard shield and act all belligerent because some prefer a console over what you have? Is that your life in a nutshell? You are a sad, little man. That is the only “fact” here.

        • Gruntsvigalots

          oc guy look in mirror as you are talking about yourself! It is what Pyscho-cops call projection. You see in the other person what you dislike the most in yourself….hence stop beating yourself against the wall of others POV you do not like?

  • LarZen

    The colors is so washed out. I have GTA5 on both PS4 and PC. And it’s the same there. The colors and textures are just popping so much more on the PC version.

    • That’s the same with every game really.

      • LarZen

        Yeah… But why is the colors so much more vibrant on PC games? Is it the textures or what is it?

        • Yeah, the PC version usually comes with improves higher resolution textures.

          • LarZen

            But why don’t they adjust colors and saturation to match the warmer picture you get on a PC version? That’s what I don’t understand… probably a complicated answer with texture layers and etc etc…

          • Easier said than done, consoles are limited by hardware while the PC versions are not.

          • jent

            I think it is strange that most websites like Gearnuke make comparisons based on the pinnacle of what the PC is capable. PC gameplay is capable of the images seen above but that in no way means that PC gamers will see that level of quality. I suspect that a small minority of PC gamers have the equipment needed to play games at ultra settings with extremely high texture qualities yet websites which make comparisons rarely point out the obvious truth about PC gaming. You are right that consoles are limited by hardware but PC versions are also limited by the hardware the gamer is able to obtain/afford. A sad truth is that people who frequent this site (and others) are not representative of PC gamers IMO. I would really be interested to know the graphics hardware breakdown of Steam users. Perhaps then sites could post image/graphics comparisons which reflect the real world and not the idealized one.

          • heaving brown

            color depth and saturation have nothing to do with hardware limitations. it’s an issue with the capture, the output color settings, or the tv. pretending to talk about subjects you’re ignorant of just makes you look dumb, Daniel. Try to avoid it in the future.

          • vapidwolf1

            Yeah I was going to say just adjust your tv but didn’t want to sound obnoxious,everything needs to be calibrated properly,for example the xbox one has a higher contrast level than the ps4 out of the box,my pc without calibration has deeper colours than my ps4,nothing that good calibration can’t sort out,the xbox one has a calibration tool built into its software, although its basic it will give you a start before you fine tune.

          • LarZen

            I have a professional THX verified calibrated TV. And both the XBO and PS4 looks nothing like PC versions of the same game. When it comes to colors.

            It’s like Amith Thomas writes a few jumps up. It’s about shaders,resolution on textures and texture filtering etc.

          • vapidwolf1

            On a pc of comparable specifications are you talking about, I hope so because if your not it would make you a bit stupid.

          • Thad Vanity

            ……Words…..There are none to describe how stupid you just sounded

          • heaving brown

            It’s funny, because I have 1 word to describe how stupid you sound: retarded

          • I was talking about the textures.

          • heaving brown

            yeah, you were talking about texture detail/resolution as if that would have anything to do with color saturation/depth. It doesn’t.

          • Amith Thomas

            It’s not a case of colour tone and temperature. It’s more a case of better shaders and higher resolution textures and texture filtering etc etc. It’s not about simply increasing contrast or saturation or something.

          • Kim Marius Falch

            You can do that with you’re tv πŸ™‚ The saturation and colors for the console version is aimed for calibrated Tv’s and will look a bit different on monitors due for different RGB. As PC is full and Consoles is limited. You can go into the settings and change whatever makes it look the best, even though i would get my Tv calibrated πŸ™‚

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

    the xbox version looks better. LOL and they say PC is more powerful.

    • Torbold

      Are you kidding me? I am not a PC-owner, but gosh, am I not blind!
      Don’t you see the resolution of textures, higher quality shadows and details on the models?

    • Uhm, have a look again? PC looks leagues better, especially in the first shot.

      • Cenk Algu

        Of course PC will look better but this is a non fair comparison because shots taken from a zero quality stream.LoL!!!Sorry and PC even in these shots not looking as good as you mentioned.It is the time of the day I guess.Because the XO version totally shadowed while on PC the Sun shines toward to his face!!

      • aawells07

        Lmao Is this your first day on the internet? Hook line and sinker. He reeled you in so easily.

    • Affro-hop

      when was the last time u visited your eye doctor?

    • PeregrineX7

      Here we have the troll, or in Latin, the trollus retardolus
      An indigenous species native to the internet, the troll survives eating other people’s attention.
      To find its food, it usually writes a controversial or rude comment.
      Other species will respond with equally ugly responses, filling the troll and keeping it alive.
      The native troll is a vicious parasite, sucking the joy and fun out of its surroundings.
      Help us keep the population of this vicious creature under control
      Please, don’t feed the troll

        HAHAHAHA thanks for your comment dude. I couldn’t stop laughing while reading it.

      • Torbold

        Ahahh!!! Nice one πŸ™‚

    • PachterStation

      Another pointless debate. PCs can be upgraded, consoles can’t. The Xbox 360 still holds up very well when you consider it’s 10 years old this year.
