Ubisoft had an Assassin's Creed Unity panel at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, but the game also showed up at the Xbox booth as well. Xbox fans were treated to a gameplay demo presentation that showed off eight minutes of Unity running on Xbox One. The video shows off the game's combat and stealth elements, while also demonstrating how seamless the city of Paris is in the game, with no loading screens going from outside to the inside of buildings or from one section of the city to another.

One of 2014's biggest games is the hotly-anticipated online shooter Destiny from Halo creators Bungie. Destiny will have current gen and last gen versions, launching on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 9. The general gameplay experience will be roughly the same across all platforms, but there will be graphical differences, as the newer machines are much powerful than the last generation ones, and there's even a bit of a power gap between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. 

If you're curious to see how its graphics look across the different versions, we have a comparison video showing side by side footage of the Destiny beta on all platforms. Keep in mind that these graphics aren't final (the Xbox One version is aiming for 1080p in the final release but is currently only running at 900p), but the video will give you a pretty good idea of how the versions stack up against each other.
