Some comments from one of the cofounders. "it's more of a PR differentiation"

"We are still working on squeezing the juice out of the consoles and Microsoft are supporting us in this respect," he explained. "The final effect, whether it's 720p, 1080p - we had the debate in the studio about it and actually asked our tech guys to explain how it works, and they sent me some complicated graphs that 'if I have this size of the screen, and I sit one meter or two meters from it, then I might be able to see the difference'.

He later suggests the final resolution will be better on PS4. And that PC will be pushed the furthest.

We know the ps4 version will be better, it's safe to assume.
What we don't know yet is if they'll need to cut dynamic lighting off the xboxone version because of the esram.
(Forza,MGS,SO confirmed it won't have it either etc.)

We don't know about Watch Dogs having it or not either, I haven't seen any articles on that with WD yet.

Does BF4 look identical on PS4 xbone? I have yet to try it. But I do know Frostbite engine works great.

I have no doubt they'll do their best to make the Xbone version presentable but why would they deliberately hold the PS4 version back?

No, the PS4 version is higher res, has better lighting and a more solid framerate to boot.

MS parity demands? Wasn't there news and topics on that weeks ago? Or was that about the "same release date for all games" thing? confused. "release your game on our system as well/same date, or not at all", right?

MS requires release day parity from indie developers, nothing about graphics. I don't think MS is in a position to demand such a thing anyhow the way this gen is unfolding..

Nope. They have said there will no holding back on any platform so that automatically makes the PS4 version better. He wasn't using 720p and 1080p for no reason.

Also CD Projekt Red are all about visuals being a PC first studio so it is funny seeing talk about seating charts that Microsoft sent them!
