HD comparison of Burnout Paradise for the PS3 and Xbox360 from Gametrailer.com
Once you start playing, I don't think anyone would care about which version have the better graphic. This game is fun, and that all that should matter. But I guess some people actually will care about which version look better.
that ps3 version has the graphical edge
and runs faster 60fps vs 40/50 fps
ps3 version has a more stable framerate too.
Gametrailers tweaked almost all ps3 vs xbox 360 comparisons and ofcourse how can you compare when ps3's max setting is HDMI 1.3 and only some xbox 360s support till HDMI 1.2 ONLY
Here is what IGN recommended --PS3 version
@marionz i dodnt need to trust you cuz i know that xbox 360 version has inferior graphics/much lower framerate and less stable FR too
I work for babellgames france. I tried both versions
the framerate is not that different! 60fps vs 40 50 fps? i dont know how you came up with that but after playing both versions i couldnt see any difference so trust me its not 60 vs 40 or 50! i hate made up facts
i didnt say anything
IGN did right on your top
LINK posted again for relief-
Hey I wanted to clear something up in as nice of a way as i know how. THe fact is is that you can hardly compare HDMI 1.3 to 1.2 because less than 1% of the HD tv's as of today use it. In fact 1.3 is a huge marketing scheme and apparently too many ppl have bought into it. I am a huge ps fan but when it comes to 1.3 it was a little "too future" proof. We wont see the benefits of 1.3 until the ps4 comes out...
On the subject, burnout is amazing no matter which way you cut the pie, so lets all thank criterion for making an awesome game instead of pointing fingers... seriously everyone, lets get over the petty fanboyism and realize that this game could have been just another installment. They went further than expected and got great results. Thank you for pushing the envelope Criterion.
Once again i dont mean any disrespect to you, we all live and learn.

The Executive - you've always had well informed information on this website. But this time you have made a mistake my friend. There is actually a huge difference between HDMI 1.2 and HDMI 1.3. There is NO difference at this time when it comes to video games. When it comes to movies there is a world of difference. PS3 excels in this area when it comes to video and audio playback. HDMI 1.3 smooths out color transition to where it is virtually undetectable (term called Deep Color able to have over a billion colors at it disposal). Also takes the max hz from 60 to 120. So the screen refresh rate is doubled, which in turn eliminates screen shudder. As for the Audio...Lossless, Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master Audio, and I believe uncompressed PCM falls in that category too but not 100% certain. All of this is only possible with HDMI 1.3
Your next question is probably do I even own or need of all that? Hell yeah...7.1 Surround Sound in my crib. Only thing lacking now is the 1.3 TV... Onkyo SR 705 is one hell of a receiver. If your looking to upgrade for cheap that is the one.
Finally, there is no reason at all to wait for the PS4 to enjoy HDMI 1.3 now. It is truly up to the developers to implement this glorious technology the PS3 can provide now. But to see Lossless audio in a game at this time is asking too much I believe.
HDMI is BS. It does not have better picture quality than component cable. There is no difference.
check the vid.
HAHAHAHAHAAA!! How can you justify a comparison of HDMI to Component with a piss poor low res video from GT? And worse still, a video that was just a way of back pedalling the fact that they do all their comparisons on Component. They were trying to cover their back and say its ok to use component, when its a common fact that PS3 works at its BEST through HDMI. This video shows jack sh!t at this poor level of detail. I also think their HDMI capturing hardware DOESNT support the Full RGB and Super White modes.
I have seen the difference with my own two eyes on my own TV with my own PS3. I took a component cable and hooked it up to my Samsung HDTV and PS3, the picture looked washed out and a little fuzzy. Plugged in HDMI and saw a difference, it was a little more dark on the blacks and no fuzz. I'd put that down to HDMI being pure digital with no degredation effecting the signal where as Components Digital to analogue conversion induces noise over the coax cables.
BUT, then I set Full RGB and Super White modes on in the PS3 settings menu.. BAM.. contrast and detail levels as well as colour details improved DRASTICALLY even over the standard HDMI setting. All this on the SAME screen. I didn't change any settings on the TV at all. You can't use Full RGB and Super White over Component on the PS3 so they definately AREN'T using it when they do their "Tests".
The problem is not ALL TV's support full RGB and Super White so if you turn it on it might not even show (or even look worse, like really dark). My Samsung was manufactured in October 2006, I would hazard a guess and say if you have a TV thats 1 to 2 years old it should work.
My point, as well as many others have said, is that GT do their comparisons to favour the Xbox 360. What they SHOULD do is take the best levels of each console, otherwise, they might as well plug them both into Composite at 480i because by default thats what PS3 comes packaged with, so the Xbox 360 should be downgraded to that level.
GT lost all credibility when they finally admitted what every PS3 owner was saying. They don't use HDMI or Ful RGB/Super White, so they don't turn on the full potential of the PS3. Xbox 360 was designed for Component and VGA, and it show because it looks alot better than PS3 in this mode. But the PS3 was designed to use HDMI to its full potential, and when you turn on all the extra features HDMI provides along with a modern TV, you're in for a totally different experience, for the better.
Visually it's hard to say, I couldn't tell a difference
I could tell the different between the two different 360 versions...although that doesn't really help
But from the reviews/comparisons done SO FAR I'm still pretty sure I'm *renting* the best version
I couldn't tell any giant differences either.
I am a die hard Sony fan, not delusional though. I don't feel they looked THAT different from each other. I think we should all be a bit more miffed that the game could have and should have looked better overall period. Something about this version of Burnout isn't exciting me and I haven't figured out why.
Followed up by VGA Xbox 360. Component looks terrible for both consoles.
Gametrailers?......are you serious?
May as well have posted the exact video from xbox360.com.
GT is so biased,...like me...AHAHAHHAHA
The PS3 version looks better. Not surprised at all.
not shocked or anything. IGN agrees.
GT and GS tweak almost all ps3 related videos to make them look bad.Even Uncharted looked bad on Gamespot's video review.
However i trust the word of the world's biggest gaming website
We got it zambrota
the Ps3 version is better, graphically
Didn't Criterion say the PS3 version is also superior in that it calculates damage/physics better thanks to the number-crunching cell? ;
yes Criterion said that too back in October,2007
Toughname ---i didnt say anything
I justed wrote what IGN said .
you got it BUT STILL HAVENT CLARIFIED IT
@the person below
IGN is now the biggest gaming website
IGN gets 2m+ more traffic than Gamespot.
Gamespot was once the biggest website but their anti-ps3 stance has caused their downfall

gamespot is dead
"However i trust the word of the world's biggest gaming website"
Actually, in terms of page views, GameSpot is the "bigger" site.
And GameSpot also agrees that Burnout Paradise looks better on the PS3.
"The PlayStation 3 version looks maybe a hair crisper than the 360 version, but that's about the only visual difference to speak of."
Their is absolutely no way gamespot gets more traffic than IGN. IGN has traffic on its main site for info on every form of entertainment. Thats not even counting the tons of traffic their forums get.
Wow, 4 windows of comparison? That is truly epic.
They say the 360 version has pop-in and they actually recommend the PS3 version over the 360 version.
Burnout Paradise is best on PS3,just like DMC4;)
and it is always good when it comes to games we all care about --DMC 4 and Burnout etc
"The PS3 version seems to sport slightly darker blacks and slightly crisper textures, but otherwise it's indistinguishable from its 360 rival"
Its a solid title all around.
Whenever 360 owners see a multi-platform game that is actually better on the PS3, rather than just saying "Ok, the PS3 won this round", they always say, "Who cares, the game is fun on both systems."
As Carlton from the Fresh Prince said, "Tsk squared."
I own a 360 and a PS3, so good try.
Better luck next time buddy.
both look the same. Got both systems to compare noticed no pop up on the 360 nore any slow down
As expected, the XBOX 360 version is riddled with frame rate hiccups, washed out colors and jaggies. This seems to be a continuing trend among multiplatform games as of late. Dark Sniper supposes it's Microsoft's fault for developing such a piss poor console.
Why is the PS3 component footage all purple tinted compared to the PS3 HDMI? Is it because of the time of day in the game?
You mean first tunnel part, right? I think they just failed encoding.
Yeah, the tunnel was an odd color compared to the others
Is VGA the equivalent to HDMI? I know nothing about it
VGA is lesser when it comes to bandwith. More data is able to transfer from console to TV via HDMI cables. So in turn you get better picture quality and sound using HDMI.
A lot of reviews already came out and indeed the PS3 version is better..but its still good to play on the 360..but still im going to purchase it for my PS3..
The reviews say it all. If you want achievements, get the 360 version. If you want the graphics and framerate, get the PS3 version.
lol, quad split screen.
They finally could get any HDMI capture devices?
i am with timewarner roadrunner extreme that sometimes get me 1000kbps download and it takes me 20mins and still...nothing
just after clicking the view video>> link...no waitng.
Where the hell is the Xbox 360 HDMI...these videos will never be the same now that GT has decided to pander to the cry babies. What happened to being objective about the comparisons and showing them with their out of the box settings.
My eyes hurt after watching that!
So in short seeing the video:
PS3 to 360 ports look equal
360 to PS3 ports look like horsesh!t
There are more 360 to PS3 ports then the other way around. So the 360 owners get the better part of the deal!
Better graphics and better frame rate for the PS3 version = Equal? Haha.
please tell me, what's your mission?
no one cares what you say. have you ever seen how many people are ignoring you? i mean enough is enough. ps3 fans love their ps3 games and you love your 360 games. can we please leave it like that?
there's not a single intelligent post from you - you act like a jealous child because you know that there are children with better toys than you.
i think in a couple of years (maybe when you're 18) you will look back and think: OMG what have i done ... i'm such an idiot. and wanna know what .. you're right.
i don't like the 360 and the games for it. do you really think i give a fvck what you're saying?
the world would be a better place if there were less people than you.
it is better on PS3 HDMI (and component)
I can see better crashes on PS3 than xbox 360 (with my careful examination)
But apart from that the gameplay is enjoyable on both consoles.
Better crashes???? HAHA, your an idiot.
thats my view. i have been examining carefully. FirstKnight i know you are a xbot on here and sooner or later your 3rd console is on verge of another breakdown. im still on my first PS3 console.
Anyway, my point is Criterion made PS3 version better than xbox 360 version. They even said so.
I have seen more PS3 Burnout Paradise adverts than xbox 360. Btw, there are no xbox360 burnout paradise advertising in UK.
As expected, both games looks like s#@#it.
Really, It's like people complain about one thing, they go ahead and add another. next they'll run the games in composite.
The 360 can hang with the ps3 but the ps3 can't hang with the 360....Orange Box anyone?
bots are really running out of comments....
I'm still debating over which version to get. I really want this game.
