Doom Switch vs. PS4 comparison

Posted on September 13, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Images, Switch

Bethesda announced two new games for Switch today. Along with Wolfenstein II, the publisher also intends to release Doom on Nintendo’s console.

Based on what was shown during the Nintendo Direct, Doom on Switch seems to stack up favorably to the PlayStation 4 version. Here’s a comparison of the two:

    I noticed it during the Direct as well…

    Lower textures and lighting. More blur and less viewing distance.

    However, it’s likely 60fps, which is most important for a game like this. On a mobile console, it’s impressive, and it looks more than decent.

    • Zedthered

      that’s what you get in 1080 p wit ha real screenshot not one that is the resolution of the iphone 1

      Try “incredible”. Have any mobile games ever looked this good?

      (Honest question… I’m not into Android/Apple games and I’m not really familiar with the graphical output of devices such as the NVIDIA Shield, tablets, or any similar technology.)

      • Liam Freeman

        To answer, no mobile games have, at least if they’re going for realism.

    • Scott

      It’s 30fps.

  • Coloring looks more vibrant on the Switch. Good on them.

    • Zedthered

      It’s the same… switch looked wash because of the blurry textures.

      • metalpants

        Lol, ever heard of online video compression? Especially how it’s worse on a live feed?

        No one will know how well does the Switch version stack up to the PS4 version until Digital Foundry makes their usual analysis with DIRECT FEED footage from both consoles… or anyone with the right equipment for that matter.

        Why bother trying to argue when you don’t even have the right settings for it?

  • WTFISTHISSHIT?

    Perfectly understandable. Switch is weaker so it wouldn’t be the same as the PS4 ver but it stacks well to the PS4 ver.

    • Zedthered

      Not really

      • WTFISTHISSHIT?

        Not really what? Did you expect the Switch to match the PS4 exactly?

        • Zedthered

          Nope but some people are apparently believing that it’s gonna as good visualy.

      • Ektoras Kalderis

        Switch is a handheld device. What did you expect. Seriously you don’t know your sh*t

        • Zedthered

          I do.

          • Re4gNarsil

            No you don’t lol, it stacks quite well considering it’s on such a portable device

  • GoldenTriforce

    Seems like a slight downgrade in texture quality and a decent drop in lightning quality, but overall still very impressive. Of course this is trailer or live stream footage, so there is likely a good bit of compression. We should wait until the final game releases to judge.

    • Kenshin0011

      Games ALWAYS look better than their YouTube videos, even in YT 1080p

    • Justmadeanaccount2

      It looks the same…..

      • Mr Objection

        Never…. Compression versus raw is always different, I record videos on my pc, and I started recording on 4k because I couldn’t stand that horrible video compression that YouTube put to videos at 1080p, detail is lost massively, also a livestream has a lower bitrate than a normal video

        • Velen (Not WoW)

          The differences between the two screenshots are minimal.

          • Zedthered

            becasue the resolution of that “screenshot” is also minimal in term of resolution so you lose information of the picture and you try to make things look similar even when they really are not xD here you go there’s a 1080P screen for you https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/34436d4681e19dafbc62a2a4e645a96aae2cd6dfc5c5104c553b1f6e92ecf4b2.jpg

          • Busterblade

            You’ve reposted that same screenshot 3 times now, are you quite finished? From the depths of what troll cave did you even emerge?

          • Zedthered

            It’s not a troll it’s just to show that if you take a good resolution one things can look different. And if the truth hurt the little snowflake that you are I’m sorry i can’t do anything about it.

          • Busterblade

            You think people don’t know that? You think people are unaware of the hardware difference? And you still haven’t justified reposting the same screenshot 3 times, people go through the comments and see your troll the first time. Are people not allowed to be happy they’re getting DOOM, without you throwing crap like that around? Back to your troll cave.

          • Zedthered

            Actually looking at some of the comments i guess that yeah a couple of people don’t know it. Again it’s not a troll it’s the truth if this website was a serious one, they should have made theyr own screenshot and not taking the low res one of a tweet. People can be ahppy to get doom, but you gonna have the choice of a 60 buck low res verison or a 20 buck actual decent one, and if you can afford a switch you can easely afford a ps4 or a pc.

          • Game_God

            cuck my sock!!!

          • SpectralDynamite

            Only snowflakes call other people snowflakes.

          • Mr Objection

            There is difference, obviously ps4 is superior

          • Velen (Not WoW)

            It honestly doesn’t really matter so long as the game looks good, and it looks good on Switch, end of story.

            Yeah the PS4 version has more bells and whistles as far as graphics are concerned, but don’t try to pretend the game is butt ugly with less of them.

          • Zedthered

            If less effect and blurry texture is you definition of looking good… Then “good” for you. It’s just not gonna look as sharp as it should and that’s it, and i was talking abou tthe pc version because playing a FPS with sticks is a bit stupid for this kind of nervous action.

          • Game_God

            Ko gill yourself!!!

          • Mr Objection

            I never said it is ugly, ps4 version is superior, but the switch version is great for what it is, a portable console

    • Zedthered

      Seems like a Big downgrade if you compare a 1080 screenshot of both version and not a 360P one.

  • ben

    I have only played it on the pc at the highest settings so both the switch and ps4 look a lot worse…at the same time.. one of these I can bring to work with me and play at lunchtime.

    • DexterMike

      Exactly.

  • smashbrolink

    Not a bad job, considering it’s on a hybrid. Looking forward to this one; it seems that a lot of people are overestimating just how much of a graphics downgrade AAA ports really experience on Switch.

    • They absolutely are. Some Switch-positive people do it, but I’ve been seeing a lot of Sony fans (fanboys, I guess?) act like the Switch could never handle any game on the PS4 that isn’t indie. Pretty wild, and very silly.

    • Billy Bob Throrton

      I think it’s more laziness,they’re accustomed to making one game for pc,xbox and ps4 ever since ps3 and they don’t want to spend money on dev kits and time on programming,which is their job…

      • Zedthered

        You know nothing john snow.

        • Game_God

          Got sh*t between the ears salty-boy???

  • Zeebor

    “So long as it runs, it counts.”

  • YoungTheFish

    Seriously impressive. Can’t even run that game smoothly on my mid-end laptop.

  • Wow….I’m just excited that this game is on the Switch and the visuals look impressive for the type of device that the Switch is

    • TDude73

      You’re not the only one who’s excited. Bethesda have truly earned the fullest support compared to CAPCOM and EA.

      • Storme Prince

        it’s capcom bringing like 5 games vs bethesdas 3?

        • SpectralDynamite

          More like 3 and the ones we want are coming out literally everywhere EXCEPT the Switch.

  • Kind of reminds me of that Lego Undercover comparison video, where the Switch did have a few hits to quality, but a couple of (smaller) things were improved.

    I notice that even though the hand looks way less detailed for the Switch, the armor looks more detailed. I don’t mind these kind of trade-offs, either.

  • TDude73

    Both the Switch and PS4 formats are almost dead even. DOOM for the Switch is truly a definite must. Bethesda truly earns the fullest support to all Switch owners.

    • Michael C

      with both announced games coming months and months after the release for the two main systems…. lower graphics, and doom is even missing a mode… but be excited for the scraps i see.

      • Game_God

        Michael Cuck my sock salty-boy!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUaGPEoPTLY

      • Thiago Romam

        Sure it’s a shame. they should had release Doom for the Switch in 2016.
        Next time they should hire Emmett Brown.

  • awng782

    Very impressed.

  • FutureFox

    If it weren’t already $20 on PS4 I’d get it for Switch.

    • Gemmol Lewis

      if i could play it anywhere i would get it on ps4

  • Reggie

    I don’t give a crud about the dip in graphical quality. It only becomes noticeable when compared side-by-side anyway. The fact that I can play Doom anywhere is more important to me. Bonus if this means a steady, high FPS.

  • Wanderlei

    Looks virtually identical.

    • Zedthered

      Open your eyes then.

      • Game_God

        Shut your mouth then.

      • Dude we get it, your vision is so crystal sharp that small texture and lighting differences bother you to no end- at the end of the day though the layman won’t notice any difference, get over it

  • Supercow12

    Another comparison: https://imgur.com/a/PW1X5

    tl;dr: lower resolution output, and removal of high frequency details from normal/gloss maps on the horns and chest so those textures can be stored at a lower resolution to reduce storage space.

  • Addy

    A one-year port, full priced, on inferior hardware. Looking forward to this game, it looks fu- Yeah, no. Not happening.

    • Tlink7

      There are people who could not play the game before because they didn’t have a stronk PC or a PS4, you know 😛

      • Michael C

        well it also came out on x1…. So with the PC,PS4,X1 …. if you wanted play it you would have.

        • Tlink7

          Nope. For some people, buying a PS4/XBone/PC is not worth it for a game. They may still want it, but the costs aren’t worth it. I want to play the game and I haven’t done so yet 😛

        • Game_God
        • Cypher

          I wanted to play it, but there were better games for me, I had too little time. Now I can play it on a plane, waiting for an appointment or, you know, that other moment everyone’s playing mobile games. I think that’s the idea of the Switch for me. I played Zelda on the dock for, idk, an hour total?

      • Addy

        Stronk?

        • Tlink7

          Strong

    • metalpants

      Lol Your loss ;). I haven’t played it, and now, not only can I play it for the first time, but I can take it with me? Um… sounds like a win to me.

      • Zedthered

        for 2 hours :E

        • metalpants

          Watcha mean? Does it go open-world after 2 hours? And if so, does it have the draw distance and exploration freedom that BOTW and XCX offer?

        • metalpants

          Not if you have a 20,000 mAh power bank ;).

      • Addy

        I’m not really into first-person shooters. But the thing is the Nintendo Switch is getting older released games at full price. Yes I am aware they can be played on the go and have all, if not, most of the downloadable content.

        • metalpants

          Fair enough.

    • Michael C

      thank you for telling the truth.

    • Game_God
  • Paddy Alfan

    Think of the children!

  • Zedthered

    Maybe you should post a 1080P screenshot of both and not reduce it to a crappy image to tell there’s no difference cause i just did a test and compared it to the pc version what i got is alittle bi different from your “comparaison” Cause yes other people dont plays in 360 P so if you put a real 1080 P comparaison…. Well, Huge drop in texture quality, lighting quality, effects including particles for exemple, low resolution models of the character and monsters etc etc… Good for the people wont only have a switch, but since it’s gonna be cheaper to get it on othe platforms with a better result it’s not because it’s gonna be portable for 2.5 hours that it’s a great port, it’s gonna be decent, but it will not look good compared to the original version that came out one year ago.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      “How about I rain on everyone’s parade!!!”

  • Operative

    It’s a YouTube video, and I won’t be entirely convinced what they showed was running on switch until someone gets actual hands on. A single image won’t convince

  • Tlink7

    Looks pretty amazing! Shame not all games on the Switch seem to be able to get noice graphics (*cough XC2 cough cough*)
    Can’t wait to blast some demons 😀

    • metalpants

      Lol hmm, I don’t think an open-world game with HUGE draw distances should be compared to a corridor-based shooter, lol.

      • Zedthered

        indeed.

      • Tlink7

        I know I know, but BotW is a game similar to XC2 and is much prettier in my opinion. I just think XC2 looks so similar to the Wii U prequel and that is rather sad considering the Switch is a much stronger machine

        • PikaPlayzHD

          XC2 looks gorgeous

          • Tlink7

            I’m glad you like it, but opinions and all

        • metalpants

          I get you. Granted, I do think that last trailer showcased a very refined and polished version of what we’ve been shown in gameplay footage up to now.

          That said, IIRC, XC2 was a project that was initiated around 2 to 3 years ago, so the assets, engine, etc. were Wii U based from the get-go. Not to mention, wouldn’t this be Monolith Soft’s second full game in the HD arena after XCX? I’m cutting them some slack for now, lol.

          • Tlink7

            Yeah, there are definitely some parts that looked really nice. At one point in the trailer they fought some big furry animal and damn, it looked fluffy xD
            Hope you guys enjoy this one 😀

  • Ektoras Kalderis

    Who would have thought that Bethesda would support Switch with 3 high profile games. Take notice Capcom and EA

    • Michael C

      that come a year to 6 months after the release on PS4/X1 …and doom is even missing a mode, they are giving scraps.

      • WTFISTHISSHIT?

        A mode that was deemed to be a** by the majority of the players. Also you can make the same argument for Okami HD, an 11 year old game.

        • Gamingfan

          who’s hyped for okami on the other consoles?

          • WTFISTHISSHIT?

            You being serious? Take a look around GFAQs, Gematsu, YouTube, Eurogamer etc and see for yourself, plenty of Playstation and PC gamers excited for the game (Not so much Xbox gamers.)

          • Gamingfan

            pretty weird if they are lol.

  • Michael C

    Switch version looks washed out, obviously not as good looking as PS4/X1 visually… and its missing a mode. Only on the switch can things like this be celebrated as a win.

    • PikaPlayzHD

      Its only missing a level editor thats it, it has everything else even all of the dlc and updates

  • Rafael Bueno

    The game will probably run at 720p but if it still runs a solid 60fps even on Portable mode I’ll be so happy about it

  • Cesar Miyamoto
  • Looks amazing, plenty of salty fanboys eating crow today and moving the goal post, it’s cute 🙂

    • TDude73

      Look at all the seats already. Ha ha…

  • Radish

    I mean, it doesn’t look as graphically sharp as the PS4 version, but close enough for me, and way more accessible. Then again the PS4 version doesn’t look nearly as graphically sharp as the PC version, yet PS4 owners seem perfectly fine with that.
