Initial reports pegged PlayStation 4 as more powerful than Xbox One. But, will the differences between the two consoles make much a difference? Apparently, two big multiplatform games both run at a higher resolution on PS4 than on Xbox One: Call of Duty and Battlefield.
"Wanted to confirm that for Xbox One we're 1080p upscaled from 720p. And, we're native 1080p on PS4," Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin said on Twitter, confirming rumors that were bubbling online. "We optimized each console to hit 60 FPS and the game looks great on both."
Digital Foundry also had a chance to take a look at both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Battlefield 4. Once again, the Xbox One version runs at 720p, while PS4 runs at 1600x900, giving it about 50 percent more pixels.
It does appear PS4 has the edge in terms of power, but will the difference between 720p and 1080p sway the average gamer? Or, will customers look at the price tag, for which PS4 still holds the advantage against Microsoft?
