PS4 Blu-ray Outputs Poor Quality Videos Compared To Xbox One, PS3

By   /   Dec 18, 2013

When information regarding the BLu-ray and DVD compatibility of both the next generation consoles was revealed people didn’t really like that Xbox One didn’t playback recordable discs unlike PlayStation 4.

Now that both the consoles are out in the market, the story is pretty much inverse. Though the Xbox One plays original Blu-ray discs perfectly, the PlayStation 4 is pretty bad at doing the same.

If you play 1080i content on the PS4, you’ll find that the system deinterlaces it pretty badly.

The entire screen gets deinterlaced with no semi advanced motion adaptive deinterlacing. It doesn’t mean the whole video sucks; the details somewhat flicker and resolution is still lost.

Furthermore, most of the films are stored at 24p so you don’t need to worry about those too. It is going to be the video based concerts or documentaries that are usually pretty high-res that you will meet the problem in.

Despite these assurances, if you compare this quality of performance with PlayStation 3, you will be surprised. PS3 could easily run 1080i natively and never had to face the troubles that PlayStation 4 does.

On the upside, there will be no noise reduction, unwanted processing, loss of resolution in brightness or color channel, pixel cropping or jaggies when running 24p.

Well, one thing is certain; PlayStation 4 was surely rushed into the release. These issues would not have been there had Sony given enough time to the complete polishing of the product.

I am assuming Sony won’t let the problem last for long though, an update sometime in the future will be released to fix the problem – though facing it is still a downer.
