No need for such comparisons, Console gamers dont care about graphics(atleast they claim not to, specially when PC versions are added to comparison lol).

And yes, the PC version wins again.

That's odd.

This is the hottest Sleeping Dogs article in a while. It's like people that didn't care much about the game now suddenly pretend to because it's a graphical comparison. You guys sicken me.

There's no lack of DOF. What you are seeing is the sharpness in PC textures vs console. What you think is DOF on console is actually a low res blurry texture.
TBM  +   1194d ago
comparisons meh i beat it yesterday on the PS3, and not only did the game look great on my 46" plasma with the best settings it was fun as hell. more fun than when i played GTA4.

these comparisons are worthless and are just for those people who like arguing back and forth like little children.
Anon1974  +   1194d ago
tordavis said "There's no lack of DOF. What you are seeing is the sharpness in PC."

Yes, the PC is sharper but no - the DOF is obviously lacking. It's too bad too. I don't care if the PC version is capable of higher resolution textures, the DOF they pull of in the console version gives a much more impressive, cinematic feel overall. I'd rather they use lower resolution textures in the background and employ depth of field then make everything so sharp everything looks unnatural. That's just my personal preference though.

The PC version does lack depth of field. tordavis obviously doesn't know what they're talking about, console games have had good DOF effects for years now, it's not exclusive to powerful PC's, the only areas the PC outdoes consoles in terms of graphics is anti-aliasing, resolution and sometimes tessellation (when done well). Considering how much more powerful a good PC can be the games don't look much better than the best on 6/7 year old consoles, I guess this upsets PC gamers who wasted all that money on only marginally better visuals when they could have just bought a console and had access to the best games in the industry which are mostly not available on PC.
Sarcasm  +   1194d ago
Of course someone like you who has never played on a good spec PC would say something like this.

There are a few options in the PS3's video settings that take care of the washed out look, not many people seem to know about them but when switched, everything becomes much sharper. I guarantee you that any comparisons from any websites never have these options changed.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1195d ago
I have the game.
PS3 version looks great and is FAR from being washed out.
Its dynamic range allows your TV's own contrast, color and brightness preset to not "damage" the overall picture.
Your TV will not display a flat image. So even though a noob's eyes may be tricked, more contrast does not equal better picture.

On the other hand, why is the 360 version so damn dark? It loses detail in dark areas.
And why is the PC version like depth of field (from these pics)?

A more in-depth comparison than just screenshots of cut-scenes.

"On Microsoft's system, Sleeping Dogs adopts a native 1200x720 presentation, with an 80-pixel horizontal upscale to 720p, while on the PS3 we're looking at a much lower 1152x640, which has more severe implications with regards to overall image quality."

"Generally there are lower levels of screen-tear on the Xbox 360 too. Conversely, the tearing can be quite unsightly on the PS3, with the tear-line moving up and down the screen creating a juddering effect, and this isn't helped by the more variable frame-rate which drops lower - and for longer."

"The Xbox 360 game appears to enjoy higher-resolution normal maps and textures (top) and has less aggressive LODs, as you'll see in the bottom shots."

And so on. Seems like the PS3 version is gimped. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone anymore looking at 3rd party console games.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1195d ago
60 lines less? Sorry. Couldn't tell the difference while actually playing the game on a TV.

Only thing noticeable was how dark the 360 version is and how any detail in dark areas is lost.

Pc may win in graphics, but lack a lot of other things. Rockstar games come on console first and sometimes don't even make it to pc, plus pc doesn't have some of the good exclusives like uncharted, little big planet, gears of war, and so on. No disrespect towards pc I'm just pointing out that pc isn't perfect either.

PC has tons of exclusives, a lot more than you apparently think, and a lot of them are equally as good (I won't say better because I enjoy both my PS3 and PC). Dota 2, Total War series, Star Craft 2, Amnesia: The Dark Descent [ I <3 Frictional Games ].

I love my ps3 exclusives but if i had the choice id rather play uncharted or the last of us, killzone on a gaming PC in native 1080p with dx11 and msaaX16 etc...the one thing about pc that pisses me off is having amazing hardware but faulty drivers and poorly optimized games lead to graphics glitches. Im not the greatest with computers i love the graphics benefits but damn the maintenance on pc to make it possible sometimes is a pain in the ass.

PersonMan  +   1194d ago
I can't believe people are disagreeing with you. There are more complications on PC. It isn't all plug and play. You upgrade graphics drivers which sometimes fix some things, but at the same time make older games worse.

On console, you turn it on, stick the disc in and press X on your controller to play (or A depending on which system you're playing).

The hardware has stayed the same the entire generation so you can literally take a game that came out when the PS3 launched, stick it in and play it and experience it the same as if it just came out.

Maybe because you shouldn't have to go f#$k with a bunch of settings to get it to look right on a console. I bet they didn't do it to the 360 version, so why do it to the PS3. This argument never makes sense to me. "But, but, but, if you change all your settings for each and every game it looks a LITTLE better."
I always thought that was a benefit of consoles. Get home, put the disk in, play. Not get home, put the disk in, go to settings and get everything set right, then play. Weak as hell argument. It's not like they do anything to the 360 version and not the PS3 version. That wouldn't be fair, but they don't. It's just a fair comparison, and 360 was better in this case.

I don't like the fact that some developers don't put that much effort into the PS3 with the capabilities that the PS3 has. There's no way it would look like this. But I don't care that much about graphics, I really care about gameplay. Why do people compare the PC to consoles. Consoles have limitations compared to PCs unless they not high end PCs.

-Forza Horizon is the 4th Forza this gen.
-Steel batallion sucks balls with the use of that useless Kinect crap, sucky combination between Microsoft & Capcom....
-The Kinect features like voice command & that gun upgrades, are things that aren't needed, why would I waste my time using something that is more useless than going to the system's menu..

Obviously you have exclusive IPs, but it's the same IPs over & over, where's:

-Crimson Skies
-Project Gotham
-Killer Instinct
-Too Human(crap)

Not only as retail, but some can be XBLA as well, so it is a more known fact they're relying mostly on same IPs & multiplats!!!!

@ Tito08

Your comment is irrelevant to the argument that OooHJohnny was making.

You even said so yourself that he is incorrect.

"Obviously you have exclusive IPs, but it's the same IPs over & over"

You are looking to make a completely new argument, an argument that has been going on for years now by a certain group of people on this site.

The only ones that seem to complain about the exclusives on the 360 are those that don't own a 360. Judging by your comment where you say "Obviously YOU have exclusive" only confirms my comment that those who complain about the exclusives on the 360 are those in which don't have one.

Yes MS has IP's that were once on the Xbox from last gen not seen this gen but if you noticed, MS would rather release IP's that they know will sell vs. creating new IP's that won't sell eventually leading them into a negative financial position that can be seen with other highly popular console and game makers today.

If 360 owners truly had an issue with the amount of 1st party exclusives on the 360, then nobody would buy the exclusives causing MS to have no other options than to create new IP's. If MS's exclusive IP's continue to be some of the highest selling and reviewed IP's on the market, why would they put aside money making product for products that may not make any money?

pr0digyZA  +   1194d ago
Theres actually quite a big difference if you see gameplay and not cutscenes, the high res texture pack really helped and the extra effects were great too.

Anyway they will always cater for consoles, its where majority of the money comes in, only a true PC exclusive that tries to push graphics will be way ahead. Same reason why many exclusives on consoles can look better than multiplatform games as they will play to each platforms strength. (I feel like people can't think logically here).

Textures are the same, but the 360's darker images make it look like it's better texture imo.

The ps3 version has better ailiasing if any1 caught that:)

Other than that they are exactly the same! It's all about the performance though!

EDIT: It seems from the face off that there's more than meets the eye when it comes to game play and the 360 version is actually better than might just be because these were just cut scenes and they might look closer to each other during cut scenes.

Oh and ofc, PC blows both out of the water. @Tucky equivalent?

Just because the picture is of the same scene doesn't mean they are equivalent, and also please don't be everyone knows most multiplatform games are VERY similar because they are developed with the consoles in mind.

Much like exclusives with the PS3, the exclusives for PC would blow the console games out of the water....ARMA 2 and metro any1?

Also if you actually looked at the pictures, you'd also see much better texturing and a game running at 60 fps. Also if you look shadows are much better, backgrounds are much less blurred and the ground actually looks 3D unlike the paper you see on the consoles.

Don't be a troll!

360's seems kind of dark, PC seems to have more shadows and PS3 looks about the same as PC but alittle light an lack of the added shadows.

Look at the first pic an you will see for PC a shadow on his neck that doesn't show up one the other two. Thats what I'm talking about.
