Falout 4 released today, and already people are scrambling to upload videos showcasing what they have found within the game. Fallout 4 was even featured on the Conan O’ Brian segment, Clueless Gamer. However, one of the biggest things showcased has been comparisons between Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
Fallout 4 runs in 1080p across the board. It also has a 30 fps framerate on all three platforms, but it does dip in some areas to as low as 20 fps. However, during a performance analysis by Digital Foundry, they found that at several points the Xbox One version had a “stuttering issue” where the fps dropped drastically to 0 for up to a second.
Digital Foundry said in their review, “On top of this, Xbox One is unique in its suffering of a stuttering issue, halting the game experience for up to a second during play. It’s a glaring hitch downward, and matching runs to the gates of Diamond City shows Xbox One dropping to a record 0fps (zero) while PS4 turns the same corner at 28fps. Each has their blips, but having tested two separate Xbox One and PS4 consoles, the results are always the same across the world at large; we get sizeable stutters on Microsoft’s console that aren’t present on PS4.”
Candyland did a video showing the graphics comparison of Fallout 4 on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One. They show the three of them side by side so you can directly compare how they look. However, because of the places this video was shot, it is not a good comparison of framerate.
The overall consensus from Candyland is, “We compare the graphics of Fallout 4 on PC with maximum graphics settings and PS4 & Xbox One – the consoles are identical. The main difference between consoles and PC I noticed are Shadow Distance, View Distance, Shadow Quality and godray Quality. The latter consumes a lot of performance on PC while the difference between low and ultra settings on PC for godrays is visually not huge.”
So the games are basically the same across the board, except for a framerate issue on Xbox One, that is mainly apparent when directly comparing it to the PS4. So, do you prefer Xbox One, PS4, or PC for playing Fallout 4?
