Destiny 2 PC vs PS4 Graphics Comparison

by Kyle Hanson


During my recent trip to Bellevue and Bungie HQ, which was provided by Activision, I got to check out Destiny 2 on PC. The game arrives tomorrow, but I was playing the final retail build a solid PC. As a mainly PC gamer, this was like a dream come true, and solidified that Destiny 2 PC is the definitive version of the game. Still, I had to do a full comparison against the PS4 version I had at home. You can check that out below.

Just recording the footage for the PS4 version, which was done after playing through a mission on PC, was tough. The resolution and clarity was diminished significantly, but the main thing that was totally apparent was the lower framerate. Destiny 2 is 30fps on PS4 and I had been playing at a buttery smooth 60fps for a whole day. The choppiness hurt my eyes, despite the fact that I’d been able to play multiple hours of the game on PS4 before. There’s like a switch that gets flicked in your brain after playing in 60fps and you can’t go back after.

That’s not to say Destiny 2 is a bad, or even bad looking game on PS4. It’s a solid visual presentation, but it pales in comparison to what can be achieved on PC. Now, I will admit that I’d like to see how it runs on PS4 Pro, but I didn’t have one handy for the comparison. Still, there’s way more regular PS4’s out there than Pro consoles, so it’s important for potential buyers to see what they’ll be getting.

We’ll have a full review coming up shortly, but be sure to check out my impressions so far, as well as some of the news that came out of the event.
