Congrats on the new TV..

I have a fairly new TV as well, not 4K, but when asked about HL and I too thought the graphics look very good. Well at least I know now I'm not the only one who's crazy.

Congrats on the new set! Pics!
I had a 1080p DLP that was 8 years old so not sure why it changed so much but I'm happy.

When I went back to BF4 this week after playing Hardline the night before I immediately noticed sharper graphics I believed.

I'd have to compare them to be exactly sure, but I just happened to feel like I noticed a fairly big difference when I went back to BF4.

But it could just be a different design aspect as well and not just graphics.

But to me Hardline seems to have a "haze" or "blur" about it with dark tones, where BF4 is seems more crisp with sharper edges and brighter, more vibrant maps.

I've probably not played all the maps on Hardline.

Hardline reminded me of the Close Quarters DLC with some of the maps btw.

Also I seemed to notice some weird aim assist buggies or something where my gun was not going where I aimed it.

I've barely played the game though.

Curious to see if Best Buy lowers the price this weekend to where I could get some $ refunded to me, as I still have not returned it yet. That way I might keep it a little longer. I might want to try the campaign since the first mission I did seemed okay. But I'm not much of a campaign guy.

Both games look good to me now. I'm still baffled why certain Hardline maps looked bad on my old tv but whatever. Think I'm gonna catch Hardline on sale and buy it. Probably wont be anytime soon. Think my buy point is $30 since I'm renting anyway. I'll do digital if its a good enough sale but doubt thats happening soon.

It was my quick opinion on a "audio / video science" forum in which I have no current proof to what the differences that I noticed might be.

I went on to describe what could be possibly affecting my perception between the two games' graphics.

Of course I may not have all the settings exactly the same for both games, especially brightness.

IDK, what do you think between the two games?

Shouldn't Hardline have better graphics considering BF4 arrived at the launch of PS4 and Hardline arrived a full year and a half later?

But it doesn't...right? And initially, to me, Hardline just seemed duller most of the time or something along those lines.

I'm sure if I play Hardline again I will be able to have a better opinion of the graphics between the two games, but currently I've not spent too much time with Hardline.

I wish my DLP still worked so I could take a picture. Hardline looked seriously bad on that TV. Well let me say the Glades map looked atrocious where the city maps looked like BF4. It was noticeably bad. Now, with this 4k set both games look about the same. I'd probably give a slight nod to Hardline now though. I tried BF4 today on Silk Road and it had amazing detail as well but that was the only map I tried. So my verdict is your display can make a huge difference. Why I don't quite get. The picture should be the same for every device. What I mean is its all PS4 so its all the same back end. I'm not running a high end nvidia card like a PC. All I changed was TV and Hardline looked much better on the worst looking map. Its just remarkable. A friend of mine always said his plasma was magically better than what he saw from LCDs which I always cried bs but I'm seeing this with my own eyes.

Nah...garbage in, garbage out.

Edit: might be my viewing distance. Apparently 4k works better closer. I'd need to be about twice as far away from my 65" to make it look right which I knew that when I moved it to another room. I have no problem in saying I was too close to the old one. I just don't quite get the difference in Hardline.

Battlefield 4

So at this low price who's going to pick it up? Hapi, Trail, Crav, Shmoopy, Jeep...Ben? Easily worth $40 or $32 with Gamers Club.

Sorry Neo, you don't have Best Buys in Germany.

I just bought a moving sale LG 47" LH90 from a neighbor for $150.


I literally have nowhere to put it except in my garage. I am eager to see if 240 Hz looks like puke compared to my plasma.

Hardline for $33 huh. Hmm. Is it playable without the premium?

Its tempting. Im hesitant since i will be traveling a good bit in the next few months and wont be able to play much. It would be nice if there were some good options for online gaming while on travel. The hotels i stay at struggle with playing youtube videos on my phone.

I returned my original copy to Gamestop (since they don't price match) and picked it up at Best Buy for $40. I might get to play tonight.

Assuming everything goes according to plan, tonight I'm going to break the seal on Hardline. Hopefully someone is still playing when I log on.

You can put down Bloodborne for one day, especially considering that I'm probably not going to play anymore for the rest of the week.
