In August I got an early chance to play the latest instalment of Skylanders on a PlayStation 4. I thought it was just the prettiest thing ever. After reviewing the game on the PS3, I thought I might have just been seeing things. Nope. So much better.
The difference, which might not show up quite as well on video as it does in person, is pretty much night and day. The PlayStation 4 version is crisp and clean and clear, running a smooth 1080p at 60 frames-per-second. The PS3 version is 720p and quite a bit muddier when seen side-by-side.
I said there was no going back, and I was right. If you're planning on grabbing a copy of Skylanders: Swap Force for Christmas, you might want to consider picking up a PlayStation 4 as well. It's not like you wouldn't just spend the money on toys anyway.
