As we’re sure many of you guys are aware, Bungie’s upcoming Destiny will be released across multiple consoles and console generations. It will be playable on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, as well as next-gen consoles like the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Naturally given that the hardware on the PlayStation 4 is more advanced and superior compared to the PlayStation 3, what sort of graphical differences can we expect?

Well the folks at Digital Foundry have put it to the test by comparing the beta versions of Destiny for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4. Upon first glance the differences aren’t that obvious, although later on it becomes more apparent that the PlayStation 4’s version of the game is more detailed, and the lighting is more dynamic as well, making it look more “realistic”.

However this isn’t to say that the PS3 version is bad, it’s actually pretty decent so if you don’t see the need to get a new console just for the game, you can rest assured knowing that the PS3 version actually looks pretty decent. No word on how the Xbox 360 version will compare to the Xbox One, but we expect that it will be revealed later.

However we should point out that even if you were to get the PS3 version and upgrade to a PS4 later, you will be able to transfer your saves over, so it’s not like you have to start from scratch again. In any case if you have a few minutes to spare, check out the comparison video above. In the meantime what do you guys think? Are the differences between the PS3 and PS4 obvious enough for you to get the PS4 version?
