Today marks the public Beta of Star Wars Battlefront and there has already been a great deal of discussion regarding the technical differences on various platforms. Often, game publishers showcase the PC edition at events to demonstrate the best possible visual quality and this can make the final console versions look rather disappointing. In an open Beta, consumers can experience first-hand how Battlefront performs and it’s quite easy to make graphical comparisons.
There has already been a video released containing side-by-side footage of the PlayStation 4 and PC Betas. As always, it’s best to judge with your own eyes, but the PC version features an enhanced depth-of-field and increased sharpness. Rather oddly, the PS4 edition relies heavily on motion blur and can cause nausea. Obviously, it’s unfair to directly compare a top-tier PC with the PlayStation 4 but it’s certainly an interesting talking point.
Please note, that YouTube compression horribly impacts on the captured footage and makes the final product look fairly mediocre. Unsurprisingly, the PC utilizes a wide range of complex graphical effects and aesthetically pleasing Anti-Aliasing. Furthermore, many high-end PC gamers will be opting for 2560×1440, 3440×1440, or 4K monitor setups which vastly improves the sharpness and overall clarity.
Do you think the PC version is visually superior by a significant margin?
