Flower On PS3 Vs PS4

Flower is often cited as an example of how beautiful games can be. Part something about flower petals instead of guns, but it's also to do with how beautifully the environment moved and responded to you. So, as a PS4 launch title, it's a good example of how visuals have improved since Sony's last generation of consoles.


    Doesn't look that much better...

      The depth of field, the clearer texture, sharper colour, and better anti aliasing.

      Youtube video doesn't do this game justice

    Wait what? Improvements are way minor.

    Watch it in fullscreen HD.

    There's honestly no difference. Did not notice a single change.

    I wouldn't notice the difference if they weren't side by side. But as others said above, it's hard to judge exactly from YouTube video instead of seeing the full 1080p picture.

    But to be honest, I don't really care if it's identical to the PS3 version. It's a great game on PS3, and due to lack of backwards compatibility, the best thing about this PS4 version is just the fact that it will enable me to keep playing it on the new console after my PS3 gets retired.

    Given that they're doing this with Flow and Flower, I hope to god they also do a PS4 version of Journey.

      I loved all three, but damn journey was amazing. I hope they bring it to ps4 too.

    Sooo Ps4 has Flower and Xbox One has Killer Instinct as launch titles... anyone that buys a ps4 must be severely downsyndrome

    I disagree with the author in that this is not a good game to compare PS3 and PS4......
    In fact, any game which is on both ps3 and ps4 is a bad game to compare, simply because the two systems are just architecturally so different.
    Either the games will have been made at the same time, in which case there's a chance they will just make the game for the lowest common denominator and add extra shiney's for the ps4 version, or in the case of flower, the game was written and optimised for the CELL processor, and not x86.
    I'd argue that there are some instances in which the CELL will perform better than the Jaguar chip [The Jaguar is still a MASSIVELY better choice for gaming still].

    A real comparison of PS3 and PS4 won't be available until the first Naughty Dog [or similar dev] game is released for the system. We need to see two games created and optimised for the system.

    You can't really compare the difference between two console's graphics from a yotube quality video. Even 1080p videos go through the yucky YouTube conversion and dont come out as good as they go in. The difference in this video did seem pretty minimal though. I thought they would have been able to pull more realism out of the grass on the PS4.

      Yeah I expected more of the difference between AC4 on both systems but its very minor here
