Battlefield 4 “Flood Zone” Gameplay Incoming This Friday, Xbox One and PS4 to Follow

It looks like eager Battlefield 4 fans will not only be able to look forward to some brand new gameplay of one of the game’s more recently introduced multiplayer maps, Flood Zone, but also a first peak at Battlefield 4 running on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

You may remember the urban-set, flood-able map from an earlier developer demonstration with EA’s FTW, as well as from a few short clips from some of the game’s multiplayer trailers.

According to YouTube personality JackFrags, incoming footage of the new map can be expected by this Friday, with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 gameplay to follow shortly.

Screen Shot 2013-10-23 at 8.25.58 AM

We can also confirm that we’ve received tips from other YouTube personalities regarding incoming footage later this week.

The news is certainly exciting, as the only console footage we’ve managed to witness so far came from shaky, off-screen video from various Battlefield 4 events. This will be the first time we’ve seen Battlefield 4 running on one of the next-gen consoles in high resolution.

You can catch what we’ve seen so far from the PlayStation 4 here and Xbox One here.

  • paulinacio

    will be Awesome to see actual gameplay of BF4 on Next Gen rather than some poorly recorded off screen footage =)

    • 8inister

      Pretty sure the nextgen footage won’t actually be this Friday though. It’ll simply “follow” – which could mean next week or next month.

    • Pepe Lepew

      Just watch some PC footage on Youtube at 720p, I’m sure it’ll look just like that.

    • Payy Odoor

      Its going to be on PC tomorrow. As he said the PS4 and Xbox will follow so probably not Friday.

  • Ryan Schulze

    The 360 Beta soured me a bit on the game, but JackFrags’ “Only in Shanghai” video brought back the excitement and the trust that the NextGen versions are going to be a lot closer to the PC side of things with 64 players on those giant maps. With Watch Dogs delayed, BF4 has become my top purchase for the PS4.

    • MrSunshine

      Yeah, you gotta remember that the 360 & PS3 are running off hardware that’s reaching a decade in age. 2005 is when the 360 came out, I think.

      • Ryan Schulze

        Yes, it certainly concerned me for the current gen version of the game. If I wasn’t buying a ps4 Day One, I would not be getting BF4 for console. Maybe PC when it goes on sale. The 360 / PS3 could barely handle BF3 and if Shanghai lends any insight, Conquest will be unplayable on current gen.

        • Jake Jeckle

          I do not get why people hate on BF3 on current gen so much. It played fine for me for 2 years. BF4 will play fine on current gen. The Frostbite 3 has been better optimized since then. The only thing truly hurting BF4 on current gen is the small player count.

          • Ryan Schulze

            I agree on BF3 and the player count, but that’s what concerns me. I played BF3 on 360 more than any game I’ve ever played (and I’ve been gaming for over 30 years), but I just couldn’t get into Shanghai with 12 players per side on conquest. Domination was a lot of fun and I’m sure Rush will work out well, but if they are pushing maps out to Shanghai size, then it may be a lot of Armored Kill like experiences again.

            PS..I should correct that. I probably played Combat or Space Invaders on Atari 2600 more than any other game, because that’s all I had for a long time.

            • Jake Jeckle

              Yeah I agree 100% on the player count. When I have got to capture objectives by myself 90% of the time there is a problem.

          • XFistsClenchedX

            BF3 is the worst Battlefield game ever. There are tons of problems with it.

          • NinoBr0wn

            Because it’s completely gimped from what the game is really supposed to be. The player count is a big deal yea, but it sure as hell isn’t the only thing hurting it on old consoles.

      • ROCKMONEY

        Looking at GTAV on my PS3 makes me think sometimes devs be making excuses. Or is Rockstar just that good that only they can make this gen look like next gen…

        • That guy you might know

          I kinda have to disagree on that, I play GTA V on a PS3 as well, it looks great but there are better looking games.

          Crysis 2
          Dear God that game looked amazing, I never played 3 so I can’t say anything on that.

          Once there is a legit video of BF4 on PS4 I intend in giving it a side by side comparison, just to see how it looks compared to Crysis 2 on a PS3

          • mechcell

            Crysis 3 on 360 easily look Crysis 2 on high for PC. I not know how this games looks amazing.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              Crysis 3 on 360 probably runs at sub-HD resolution

            • mechcell

              Every current gen game is running in 720p or less.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              I know. That’s what I’m saying. PCs run at more demanding resolutions.

        • Jake Jeckle

          GTAV on current gen as well as Last of Us just proves it really just comes down to the developer if they want to push something graphically or not. GTAV, God of War 3 and Last of Us proves that point.

        • NinoBr0wn

          I love GTA V, but there are plenty of games that graphically trounce it. It shouldn’t be a question is R* so good to do really anything, but GTA V doesn’t do anything “next gen.” I hate that that’s become a buzzword. My point is they made a great accomplishment, an amazing game, but nothing that makes anything look a whole generation ahead.

          • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

            Have you see. The Witcher 2 on. Xbox 360? That Gabe looks amazing! Way better than GTA and that was 2 years ago!

        • jj16802

          DICE is mainly a PC developer, and Rockstar is mainly a console developer. They can work magic on their preferred platforms because they have extensive knowledge on it. It’s why BF4 on PC will look the best while Rockstar has to release the PC version of GTA games later on.

          TLDR: It depends on what platforms the developer are good in.

      • Michael W

        2Month old build, no HD texture pack.

        Xbox 360 was November 22, 2005

        PS3 one year later.
        So 8 years when the Xbox One launches!

  • Katana67

    Next-gen footage will be exciting.

    Although, this map looks profoundly boring. The earlier video we saw was cool, as it has rooftops with defensible positions. But I just can’t help but think that this map -screams- CoD or MOHW. I’m reserving final judgment until I actually play the thing, but just superficially from what I’ve seen, only about three or four of the maps look decent.

    • Gannon

      For real. What’s with all the rooftops.

      • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

        Reminds me of a map on Combat Arms called “Waverider” or something like that.

        Plus your in a near completely flooded over town, so where else you expect to fight?

        • Gannon

          Yeah, and I understand it for this map. From what we’ve seen between this map and Siege of Shanghai though, I’m just a bit worried about the maps having too much vertical game play. We need more urban environments.

          • Joseph

            Screw that, we need a dense forest map or something!

            • Gannon

              Hah shit. I meant rural. Idk wtf happened there. Changed it.

    • Cole.

      I honestly think in terms of art cod has always had better maps. By that I mean variety not the actual graphics because obliviously bf3/3.5/4 look better. I think this is a step in the right direction.

      • 8inister

        COD has better maps? LOL. Okay, then go play Nuketown and run around a schoolbus playing hide and seek.

        • Cole.

          I said the art style. Battlefield fanboys are such immature little assholes about everything.

        • Jon Cameron

          To be fair, BF’s Metro is basically comparable to CoD’s Nuketown. At least in terms of how shitty the maps are. Don’t bring map size into this as it’s clear that one of the two games are made for large/huge maps.

      • Jake Jeckle

        This comment made me speechless.

      • LoLicker

        Most if not all BF3 maps are based on real locations.
        I think, someone can correct me if I’m wrong.

        Nothing better than taking the battle to real places.

        I know some of CODs maps are inspired by real places but I’ve never really liked the the layouts and I certainly didn’t see them as “art.”

        • Cole.

          BF3 just reuses tons of things on every map and bf4 doesn’t look like it will. Cod doesn’t reuse things all over the place and neither should battlefield. Thats what I meant but mentioning cod in a bf article is like signing away your life.

          • Michael W

            Keep talking… your only digging a deeper whole of WRONG!

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LN6BekPEACc
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXIdCuLioos

            • Jon Cameron

              I didn’t watch all of both videos but I’m still going to call those videos stupid.

              The first part of “recycled maps/map areas” is ridiculous. Okay, so a map for zombies takes place in the same area of the world as a map for multiplayer. Why is this bad?

              The second video brings up a comparison between the Uzi and PM9. Why? It’s not “recycling”, considering the PM9 is a real weapon and probably fits the time that MW3 took place in.

              I’m not going to sit here and call you or them stupid, but you/they need to try harder.

          • LoLicker

            Ah, I see your point. lol We’d see the same crane and construction pieces used across multiple maps. BF4 does seem to have reduced the number of reused objects drastically from what I’ve seen and played.

      • Katana67

        I disagree, BF has always had maps with an “on-par” art direction to CoD. As for the actual substance of the maps, BF is ahead by a mile. CoD4 is the only one I’d even consider mentioning in the same breath as BF maps, although, BF2 really had the best maps for BF.

  • http://Youtube.com/user/lallyofthevalley Nemesis_96

    “highest fidelity for infantry combat”
    Just say Team Deathmatch dude, it’s on the screen…

  • markopolo

    this map looks amazing with the storm and all the rain and lightning. cant wait to see more of it but i want the unseen maps to be a surprise when i play the game next week…oooo cant wait

  • Joseph

    Gonna feel shitty playing this on a 360 for the foreseeable future….

    • Rosemeadshredder

      Same man. I can’t justify buying a Ps4 for one game. I’ll wait till 2014 and just upgrade my BF4 copy for $10 (If the promotion is still available).

      • LoLicker

        You can find the dates the upgrade promotion will run until by going here: http://www.ea.com/news/buy-now-upgrade-later-bf4
        Most retailers offers end at the end of the year but the code provided in the case with the PS3 version will be good until March 28, 2014.

  • WomenAreStupid

    Can’t wait!

  • Aria68

    The most important thing is that BF4 on next gen gets 60 fps … The only thing i love about COD on current gen is it’s butter smooth controller, for next gen however there will be nothing to like about COD (For me at least)

    • cheeseburger eddy

      This is possibly the first trailer I watched for this game on this site and I come down to the comments and see only 1 person bringing Cod into this. I just gotta ask why? I dont want to start something here because I remember your name from months ago when I last commented but also just why you always gotta mention it. Its honestly just unnecessary

      • Jon Cameron

        You’re acting like he’s trying to start a flame war. He simply said he enjoys how fluid CoD players @ 60 FPS on current gen consoles.

        • cheeseburger eddy

          Um no. I am not acting like he is trying to start a war..? I just asked him why. In the past he was one of the biggest trolls on cod articles and still today he has to mention cod someway somehow. His post wasnt horrible no, but seeing as he STILL talks about cod on battlefield articles I simply asked why he does it. So sorry if I hurt your little feelings dude..

          • That guy you might know

            If you see who the current CoD representative is, you would see why the rep is so horrid here.

            Nothing wrong with CoD fans, but there’s this one guy…..
            He thinks CoD doesn’t get milked cause they started porting to Wii-U, but then bashes Mario because “They constantly milk him”
            Starts flame wars and when he gets in trouble he’s like “Hurr sure please don’t ban me”
            What a shining light on CoDs reputation

            Blame him for all the hate here now.

            • James Mulhall

              And what about all the Battlefield representatives on this site? Am I the only person who remembers that “Battlefield Support” guy? He hated on every CoD article and boasted about BF3/4 whenever an article was posted on it and people still do it on this site MUCH more then CoD fans do, I’ve seen more reasonable CoD fans on this site then I have BF fans.

            • That guy you might know

              I don’t think I was here for this Battlefield support guy.
              I’ve seen BF fanboys here before, yeah they’re horrible. But the logic that comes from this guy makes you think “Wow, this guy seriously thinks that”

              I think there was one guy here who was spouting nonsense about the typical crap, “blah blah destruction and vehicles”
              But it didn’t last that long.

              Ever try having a discussion with a fanboy, like talking with a mentally challenged brick wall.
              Sure, I have my reasons for disliking CoD, but I’ve given it plenty of chances. I’m only saying this cause I look at some stuff I post and I come off as a BF fanboy at times.

            • Joseph

              You guys are worse than a bunch of women on lunchbreak. STFU

              That gif is going to kill my jaw for the month. XD

            • One point

              battlefield fans are waaaay worse, I only know one guy who bashes battlefield on this site and thats Codforever. There are countless amount of people who bash cod when theres no need to comment about cod,you cant blame him.Blame yourselves.

            • That guy you might know

              I don’t think anyone should bash anything unless they give it a try. If they have, at least have proper reasoning, I’m gonna play Ghosts at some point, if I enjoy it then it’ll get props

              If it’s a reminder of previous CoD titles in a big way, then how I feel about the series will remain unchanged.

              The problem is all the people who bash it, don’t play it. Hence why there are still people dropping fish AI jokes, rather than specific points. Plenty people here do that, but there are some people who just jump on the bandwagon

            • cheeseburger eddy

              Well one sour apple shouldnt ruin the bunch in my eyes. And honestly I could be ripping this Aria kid a new one because I dont know if you were here a year ago but he was a complete douche. I can say much much worse things about him but I won’t. You know at one point I tried to fight for cod during BLOPS2 season but the battlefield people on here are unbearable. I understand that each article should only have comments towards that specific article but we do have people like these guys. All I am trying to do is figure out why..and trust me Aria started this way before CodForever did..I assume you were talking about him

            • That guy you might know

              Yeah
              There are times I’ve been able to have a reasonable discussion on some things, mostly CoD related

              But everything else is apparently bad. There were plenty of things that were complete and utter nonsense, so when it was ever called out, it was a huge thing.
              I’d defend BO2 as well, but apparently “it’s the worst CoD yet”

              But I’ve never seen how bad a BF fanboy gets, but everyone says they’re way worse than CoD fanboys

            • cheeseburger eddy

              I think black ops 2 was the best or at least my favorite cod to date but yea those kids get out of control. Haha if you were to ever find a cod article from a year ago your mind would be blown. They are just stuck up kids. (Fanboys) not normal battlefield fans

            • That guy you might know

              I only traded in Black Ops 2 cause of the probation

              Making an emblem in the menu, and my connection apparently “was no longer detected”, though I was still completely fine. I tried to go back into a game, and I apparently quit too many games so I had to stick with probation yet again. While my friends were quitting left and right and no probation. It really pissed me off.

              I planned on borrowing Black Ops 2 again from my friend, seeing he isn’t playing it then bring it back when BF 4 was released.

            • Payy Odoor

              If you look over at CoD videos and some battlefield videos you get plenty of there fanboys making naive claims about the games. I would say the true fanboys are just as bad as each other.

            • jj16802

              I don’t personally bash on any game, but if you were on any gaming community website during the Modern Warfare 2/Bad Company 2 period, you would have seen COD fanboys bashing on every non COD game. Even today, there is someone on YouTube named “IntelligentCODFanboy” that goes on and troll on every video game trailer he sees.

              The current BF fanboys are currently trying to emulate their past behavior to get back at the COD community, which is just plain idiotic. The only way to beat fanboyism is to ignore it and don’t feed the trolls. Just dislike and move on, and they’ll troll on some other site if no one replies to them. If you try to argue with them, it’s like arguing with a wall.

            • cheeseburger eddy

              I dont either. If you were here during the black ops 2 period you woulda seen the trolls on all COD articles from battlefield. I am also sure on other websites the same goes toward battlefield fanboys going on to other articles to troll. You can’t pin it on just cod fanboys. And your theory, in theory, should work but you still have people who will never give. Sad but true. :/

            • jj16802

              I honestly do feel that if the COD fanboys didn’t terrorize the other communities, situations like this wouldn’t happen since gaming news websites nowadays doing more to instigate flame wars like this to gain more publicity on their websites. Take a look at what IGN or Gamestop’s comment sections have become today.

              Before the release of Modern Warfare 2, the console wars took up most of the internet arguments in the online community. I don’t remember seeing any singe game vs. single game flame wars. But that’s just my viewpoint.

            • cheeseburger eddy

              I understand. That is your viewpoint. Mine is battlefield people started all this. Again its all on who you ask for me I saw bf players causing trouble in cod places first but if you saw cod ppl doing it first then we just have have two different view points on the subject. Either way its all bull regardless of who started it

      No need to invite it.

  • Guest

    cool

  • CoDforever

    Looking forward to seeing Next gen gameplay ! Current gen was a dissapointment, tbh.

    • Jake Jeckle

      Quit Lying. You hate BF. Your a disappointment. i thought current gen BF was great for what hardware they had to work with. Still made COD on current gen look like Pong.

      • CoDforever

        Im giving the game a chance bro, i might like it on next gen this time around !

      • CoDforever

        Current gen BF3 was good to an extent, but it wasnt good ENOUGH you know what im saying ? If they wanted the game to be played casually for a short while, than they succeeded but if they wanted the game on current gen to be played mainstream all year long, they failed. BF feeling on current gen did not have that long-lasting appeal. All i can hope is for BF4 to be better on Next gen.

  • CoDforever

    i cant stand when youtubers get insider information, they already make easy money with gameplay/property which isnt theirs..

    • //$$$@”””//

      true but it is a great way to advertise

      • CoDforever

        yea but if they are advertising a game which isn’t their property and no one asked them to then they shouldnt be making money expecially the ppl that reupload trailers and get hundreds of thousands of views

        • 8inister

          Write a letter to your congressman, kid. If the publisher didn’t like it, they’d have the video nuked within the hour.

        • //$$$@”””//

          The thing is that allot of the time publishers want youtube videos especially before release of a game or dlc.

    • ROCKMONEY

      I’m not hating – make money however you see fit. What I don’t like about this frag dude is that he is a hypocrite PC gamer who around the time BF3 first came out was talking about how he could never play on consoles because of framerate, resolution, lag, yada yada yada. Quite a few months later guess who was on his channel stating that he was gonna have PS3 footage of the End Game dlc soon because he wanted to take advantage of the fact that Playstation was getting dlc earlier than everyone else and he wanted to be one of the first youtubers with gameplay. It’s a fact that most PC gamers have this negative view towards consoles and my issue with it was don’t talk down on something but then change your mind just for a few views.

    • 8inister

      You cry about everything. If what they’re doing is so easy then show everyone how its done. Of course you won’t, you rather just sit around and squirt years.

  • XFistsClenchedX

    Too bad the Next gen version can be played on my cell phone. The next gen consoles are so outdated. Next gen will be outclassed by cell phones in 2 to 3 years. prove me wrong.

    • CoDforever

      huh ?

    • Jake Jeckle

      Here we go again.

    • That guy you might know

      You should totally pop this into a Q&A for a phone site, I wanna know what they’ll say when they look at it. Not even being sarcastic.

      Do you see what games on mobile even look like? Nothing like this stuff, so to think these games will be playable in such a short time span is beyond far fetch.

      So I’m not completely shutting your idea down, just the time frame. But if it were to actually happen, I’ll eat my words and call it a loss .

      • XFistsClenchedX

        I dunno who that is, but it isn’t me. It’s definitely a PS4 fan struggling with reality. It’s probably Jake Jeckle.

          • XFistsClenchedX

            It’s pretty pathetic.

          • James K

            You should have been there when there was a Aria68′s imposter lurking around the real one.

            It was somewhat comical.

          • jj16802

            It shouldn’t be this easy to use someone else’s name… why can’t one person just have complete ownership of a username in Disqus?

          • B_Boss

            Well if Fist isn’t promoting/defending/gloating over MS or Xbox then I know it isn’t him lol….he’s defending mobile CPUs lol…..

            • XFistsClenchedX

              That’s because mobile CPUs are pretty much what are in the next-gen consoles. They’re CPUs designed for Netbooks.

        • BroJ

          Like PC and Xbox fans are in reality. Give me a break.

    • 8inister

      You’ve gone full trolls ahead now eh, its official. Better get back on your medicine.

      • XFistsClenchedX

        That’s not me. Some no-lifer is impersonating me.

        • BroJ

          So he is impersonating you to the tee.

          • XFistsClenchedX

            He’s a less intelligent version of me.

      • mechcell

        He was half right by the way. Right now smart phones and tablets are already surpass current gen like Razer edge and Kindle Fire HDX. For smart phone will surpass current gen in about a year. In about few more years tablets will surpass next gen console and smart phone will surpass next gen in about 5 years or so.

        • BroJ

          When phones and tablets run BF4 at 60fps with 64 players at the same quality as Pc or Next gen then we will talk. But right now this is all dreamland.
          A professional technical expert would probably laugh at this. If this would be true then who needs PC or Next gen consoles when we can play al the games on are phones in 5 years. lol

          • XFistsClenchedX

            It’s not ludicrous at all. Mobile phones are already starting to come out with CPUs that can match what the next-gen consoles have (at least the netbook version of the Jaguar CPUs).

            Check out Infinity Blade III, a mobile phone game running at 1080p.
            http://youtu.be/6ny6oSHyoqg

            Now think about how many advancements will be made in 5 years and imagine what games will look like then.

            • BroJ

              It will not happen.The CPU is only one part of a whole system to run the games we see today.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              The CPU isn’t the only thing advancing.

          • mechcell

            If i was tell you a year ago. a tablet going be out here can be able to run Battlefield 3 at 1366 x 768 on high at 30 FPS. You will most likely going to laugh at me and called me “you are living in a dramland.” The tablet called Razer edge Pro.

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU2JM7HXfuw

            Not bad for only a tablet for running a game design for mild/high end PC. It why DICE are made a game engine for mobile called Frostbite GO.

            Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios has say; “Speaking of the ultimate goal, we would like to deliver PlayStation games to all devices,” “So we’re considering various things like PC, TVs, Blu-ray players, smartphones, and tablets,” and “We hope to continue to expand not only to Sony devices, but even to devices other than Sony’s,” Yoshida added.

            Also, Katsuhiro Harada, the producer at Tekken has say; “I think in the future, it’ll will be a contest services instead of hardware,” “When there’s the PS5, it will probably be just a controller and a monitor ,” and “Then, the thing that will be left is the name of the sevice.”

            I did talk to few professors at my university today, who had 10+ years experience being professional technical expert. By the way, they all laugh at you. And my professors i had him for managing technology & innovation. He did laugh at you and he got 20+ years experience being technology foresight. I got 4.0 GPA in his class and i got an 94 for 50 pages research paper on technology changes.

            Please do not a comment on technology changes or unless you know what you are talking about first.

            • BroJ

              It still does not change the fact that games of Bf caliber or console games will never show up on your tablets or smartphones. The consoles make to much money.

              Tablets and Smartphones do way more damage to the PC platform then console crowd.

      • XFistsClenchedX

        Here is the Jaguar up against some mobile cpus. The Jaguar hit 18642 in the 3D Mark Ice Test.

        Now look at how other mobile phones and the nVidia Shield do with that same test.

    • XFistsClenchedX

      You know that the CPUs in the next-gen consoles are CPUs for a netbook, right? The Snapdragon 800 pretty much matches what a standard Jaguar CPU can do.

      • BroJ

        The Jaguar in the PS4 is totally different then the standard one you are talking about. It is supercharged version of the Jaguar.

        CPU: low power x86-64 AMD “Jaguar”, 8 cores
        GPU: 1.84 TFLOPS, AMD Radeon™ Graphics Core Next engine

        • XFistsClenchedX

          You’re mildly retarded if you think the PS4 is going to be on par with PC for the next few years. The PS4 is not even on par now. What do you mean “Developers are unlikely to create a game that runs well on the PS4, but chugs along on the Xbox One and PC”? Do you actually believe that the PS4 is more powerful than a PC? Like a PC is going to struggle to do PS4 games? HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA.

          HAHAHHAHAHAHAA

          There will always be a difference. Even though developers stopped pushing what PCs are capable of, you could put a PS4 game onto an average PC gamer’s rig and they will be able to run that 30fps game at 60fps or even run it at 1440p instead of 1080p.

            “Developers are unlikely to create a game that runs well on the PS4, but chugs along on the Xbox One and PC”? This can go all 3 ways moron.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              But for an engine to chug along on the PC and not on the PS4, the developer would have to be completely incompetent. You should have said, it is unlikely that they’d create a game that would run well on the PC, but chug along on the Xbox One and PS4.

            • BroJ

              That goes for Multiplatform games yes. But when a developer pushes a console to its limits it can go far beyond what PC has to offer at least at first.(Not talking about last gen vs current PC specs). It is because of the developers that you will hardly ever see more demanding PC games then consoles. Unless developers like DICE or Crytek releases a game to maximize PC then you will see a difference.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              If a developer pushed PC capabilities, the PS4 and Xbox One wouldn’t even be able to run the game. Consoles cannot touch the limits of a good PC gaming setup. Console games never push what PC is capable of in the slightest.

              “When it comes to the PC, the eight-core Jaguar appears to get about half the performance of a current generation Intel Core i7, ExtremeTech said. And the AMD Radeon 7790 is currently used in a $150 graphics card.

              “In short, then, today’s PCs will stomp all over the Xbox One (and PS4) in terms of raw computation power,” ExtremeTech said.”

              “But the PC has been increasing its performance at a compound annual growth rate of 48 percent since 2005, according to Jon Peddie Research. The high-end PC will outperform the graphics of the PS 4 and the Xbox One by 250 percent to 300 percent when the consoles debut later this year, according to Jon Peddie Research.”

            • BroJ

              If I remember Crysis 3 ran fine on current gen and that developer pushes the PC to its limits. Also BF4 will be nearly identical on next gen. I get that PC graphics cards are getting more advanced but the developers will never be up to date on that power considering they started developing games 1 to 2 years ago for next gen and PC. Also that is why consoles can be pushed farther then PC because of the hardware never changing. They can get familiar with it and improve unlike PC where you have to be up to date every year on the new tech. That is why you see PC only devs gravitating towards consoles more.

              It is not like they can scrap there game and start new for a new graphics card. If you have a PC that matches a next gen console then you are good for another 6-7 years. By then we will be talking about another batch of consoles.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              http://youtu.be/1V21VQaFd_s

              Battlefield 4 won’t be nearly identical. It doesn’t matter whether the developers are “up to date” on that power or not. A PC could run Killzone at a far higher resolution than the PS4 could. Consoles having hardware that never changes is why they can provide graphics with more punch than a PC with equivalent hardware, however, the next-gen consoles are using 2 year old hardware. The hardware outdated from the start. At launch, gaming PCs will be 2.5x more powerful than either next-gen console. Developers are gravitating towards consoles because that is where the money is these days, for the most part.

              If you have a PC that matches a next-gen console today, you’re in dire need of an upgrade. You certainly won’t be good for another 6-7 years unless game developers choose to not push PCs in any way.

            • BroJ

              To bad nobody supports this technology. When they show next gen footage of BF4 on Friday what excuses will you make then when it is nearly identical.

              http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Steam-Survey-Most-PC-Gamers-Have-Weaker-PCs-Than-PS4-Xbox-One-58833.html

            • XFistsClenchedX

              That article means nothing at all, plus its conclusions are hilarious. Because the PC graphics cards use DX11 just like the Xbox One and PS4, that means they’re the same thing? Hahaha. The AMD Radeon R9 290X is over 3 times more powerful than what is in the PS4.

            • BroJ

              That article means everything. You think when a monster of a graphics card comes out everybody goes and gets it. Not the case. But guess what everybody does go get resulting in them selling out. CONSOLES. Keep trying.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              That article doesn’t mean anything because it was written for idiots. That graphics card is 3 times more powerful than what is in the PS4. Period. The consoles are way, way behind in power.

            • BroJ

              We can play this game all day but I am done. Bottomline is consoles is here to stay along with all the amazing award winning exclusives for consoles. Deal with it.

              It is a survey by Steam of 50 million subscribers. Proves everything.

          • BroJ

            I get the feeling any thing that is positive about PS4 you will never agree with. If it is Xbox1 or PC everything is true. In this regard I will leave you alone.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              I’m just telling you the truth. You don’t have to accept it. The truth doesn’t much care whether you believe in it or not.

            • BroJ

              Considering your comments have more down votes then me tells me nobody believes the truth.

      • B_Boss

        I’m not sure what the comparison means lol…Imagine what you could compare the NES or SNES, etc, to? Yet they still had creatively genius games released for each…Its these kind of comparisons that are irrational when you think about them for a moment. A comparison of PS4′s chips say nothing of the potential creativity of said platforms.

  • Chuckz28

    Doesn’t the ps4 have a lack of external video recording support for a little while? To clarify, if they have to use the built in recorder for posting videos then it will only be 720p regardless of what the final resolution of the game is. The Xone might end up looking better on YouTube videos but may or may not be indicative of real world visuals.

    • 8inister

      It’ll be a cold day in hell before XBONE vidcap looks better than PS4 vidcap. There’s simply more horsepower on PS4 to handle it internally.

      Regardless, if someone’s truly concerned about top quality Youtube videos (lol) they wouldn’t be wasting their time on a console.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        Lol, keep telling yourself that. Maybe one day it’ll be true. But you should prepare yourself for them to look identical.

      • XFistsClenchedX

        That’s not true. If I remember correctly, the Xbox One will be able to capture video using less resources than the PS4 does.

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

    Xbox One BF4 will look better, calling it now.

    • jj16802

      No, it’ll look the same as the PS4 version and the PC version will look slightly better.

      • XFistsClenchedX

        I have a theory that the reason why DICE isn’t saying what resolution the PS4 version is running at is because the Xbox One and PS4 are both running at 720p natively. I think they want to keep that under wraps in order to keep the PS4 fans from flipping out.

        • jj16802

          They had a short time to develop the game for next gen systems. They probably had to rush optimization. Like they said, they almost delayed the game for the same reasons Watchdogs was. Maybe they may update the resolution in a patch (If they can.).

          • XFistsClenchedX

            They won’t update the resolution in a patch and I’m sure they’re rushing things, but I think that supports my theory that both consoles will be at 720p.

            • jj16802

              Hopefully Battlefield 5 will be true 1080p. They’ll have more development time on the next gen consoles then, along with Mirror’s Edge 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront.

            • XFistsClenchedX

              Since I will have an Xbox One, I just hope all games are in 900p. 900p is good enough for me. 720p is also, as long as all the effects are there and there is good AA.

        • BroJ

          The console crowd could give a shit less about resolution. 64 players 60 fps is the only thing that matters. TVs and Monitors are way different something PC fanboys do not get. It will upscale anyway. I imagine the PS4 and Xbox1 does up-scaling a lot better than the past.

        • B_Boss

          Fist….of course you would say that.

          • XFistsClenchedX

            It makes a lot of sense.
