Behold! Assassin’s Creed 4: PS3 vs PS4 Comparison
We all know there really isn’t that compelling of a reason to rush out and buy either Playstation 4 or Xbox One just yet. That won’t happen until sometime early next year when Watch_Dogs finally drops, assuming it launches ahead of Infamous: Second Son of course. Until then, the interesting TV features of Xbox One and the vastly improved interface of Playstation 4 aside, almost everything you can get on either console has a version also available for previous-gen consoles.
“But surely,” you’re shouting at me, “surely there must be some differences between the next gen and old gen consoles. Otherwise, releasing games for both platforms would feel like a tremendous waste of time and also money. Otherwise, our entire civilization might be a lie!” And you’d be right, straw human I erected to avoid actual substantive questions about next gen tech! And to prove it, our man James Heaney decided to compare Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag on PS3 to the same game on PS4. Spoiler alert: Graphics be better on PS4.
Here’s how it went down:
True fact: Despite fairly substantial graphical differences, Ubisoft spared no expense to ensure that both versions of the game contain the exact same level of plot incoherence.
But enough about that, if you’re still recovering from Thanksgiving, let us know in comments what you think about the differences.
