Either way, the videos from last night made me doubt for a split second my choice of BF4 on XB1. BF4 multilayer is the main game that I will be playing for at least 1-2 years to come, so I obviously want it to look the best.
I game on a 1080p 50" Samsung Plasma that was calibrated to the best of my ability with one of those calibration DVDs from back in the day. I sit about 10-11 feet from the TV. at the viewing distance I am at, will I even notice a difference?
At the end of the day I just want to play and have fun, I don't plan on pausing the game and counting pixels.... but I want it to look damn good, we have been waiting 8 years for this new gen
Here are the facts then:
1) BF4 on PS4 is at a higher resolution
2) BF4 on PS4 has better frame rate performance
3) Every outlet that did captures/reviews stated that the PS4 was clearly the superior version
These are all facts. The videos and screen shots that you have seen likely came from Digital Foundry. They've released an official message stating that the capture wasn't correct. The result is the crushed blacks due to RGB Limited versus Full Range.
If you care about the look of the game and consider performance just as important (frame rate), you'll want this on PS4.
That being said, there are other factors that may make you want to pick up the XBO version. Things like controller preference, invested in the Xbox ecosystem, ect. That's fair and fine, but if you put performance in a vacuum, the PS4 is the appropriate choice.
