'Rayman Legends' Xbox One vs. PS4: 'Can’t tell the difference,' says Ubisoft

A question people always want answered when it comes to a game that hits the Xbox One and PS4, is what are the differences between the two versions of the game?

Examiner.com wanted to know the same about Rayman Legends and had the chance to catch up with Rayman Legends' lead game designer Emile Morel and he talked to us about the differences, or lack thereof, between the two versions as well as what it has been like working on the PS4 and Xbox One.

"And yes it’s true that the architectures of the two consoles are similar which has definitely made the development of the next-gen versions quite easy.

"And that’s also one of the reasons why the two versions are very similar in terms of visuals and performances. I honestly can’t tell the difference between the versions when I see them running side by side… until I finally see a tutorial showing the buttons from the controller.

"It was great to get to work on these consoles; for developers it’s always very exciting to be among the firsts to work on new hardware. We really wanted to play around with the new features and possibilities these consoles provided, like the challenges on Xbox One, or the Remote Play and the Share button on PS4.

"Microsoft and Sony are bringing exciting additions like these to next-gen gaming and we see so much potential for creating fresh, new gameplay experiences to players," Morel said.

We certainly were not expecting many major changes to come to the game's fundamental gameplay, especially since it was nearly perfect when it originally released back in September of last year. However, Ubisoft did see this as an opportunity to make certain tweaks and improvements to the game's visuals and certain peripheral features.

The differences between games on Xbox One and PS4 will no doubt continue to be seen, but you can't go wrong with Rayman Legends on PS4 or Xbox One. The game drops into retailers this coming Feb. 18th.
