Game: Need For Speed Rivals

Platform: PC, PS3, XB360

Publisher: Electronic Arts

Release Date: 15/11/2013

EA continue to saturate their video coverage of the forthcoming Need for Speed: Rivals, with a new pair of videos showcasing gameplay sourced from both the PS4 and Xbox One versions. 

As the only racer available for both next generation platforms at launch, the footage is bound to come under scrutiny as feckless fanboys unite to compare and find fault with their rival platforms. Fortunately, unlike the releases of Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 where the PS4 version came out on top with its higher resolution, the disparity between Need for Speed: Rivals PS4 and Xbox One is very negligible. Both run at a native 1080p, both perform at 30fps consistently and both look superb from where I'm sat, benefiting from EA's Frostbite 3 engine and some next generation polish. It's a far cry from the days of Need for Speed: Carbon, a launch title for PS3 that looked inferior to the Xbox 360 version at a time when developers were struggling to get to grips with the new hardware.
