GameSpot - Which version of Far Cry 3 has the juiciest-looking boar meat, you ask? We did a quick side-by-side comparison of Far Cry 3's opening scene to get quick idea of which one looks the best. What do you think? (Spoiler: It's PC)

PC
Xbox360
PS3

All versions are very close though.

Muffins12231332d ago

not really...1:40....pc version has more than double the vegetation and the shadows are much much more sharper and textures...on pc it looks like a different game

indubitably1332d ago

It looks like the PS3 version suffered from some serious frame rate and screen tearing issues. Also it looked all fuzzy, what I would assume is either how the game is trying to make up for the frame rate or lower resolution.

maelstromb1332d ago (Edited 1332d ago )

360 and PS3 copies both seemed fuzzy and had a ton of screen tearing going on.. However, low quality videos like this one are never a good representation of what to expect.

Having said that, I have been playing the game on the PC with all graphics settings set to ultra, and I can attest to the stunning beauty of the game on that particular platform. Still, Ubisoft needs to address the low quality, blurry backgrounds coupled with vegetation pop-in that people have been experiencing, like me, despite running on ultra settings. I hear they will be releasing a patch or two to fix some of those issues soon, so I'm looking forward to that.

Not that much has changed as FarCry looked great back in 2004 and in 2012 FarCry 3 looks ONLY slightly better!

The CryEngine was a Beast!

Hmm, which is better? Da Vinci's Sistine Chapel, or a picture drawn by Kid Rock, done totally in Crayon?

PC, as always.

KING851332d ago

Don't know why you got disagrees and I'm no "fanboy", but I think the educated consumer should realize that a PC visuals at ultra settings will always be better than the current consoles if well optimized. It's really not that debatable. Some people on here just need to stop the silly allegiance and face facts.

@vortis:

I disagreed cause you said XBots and SDF like a 13 year old in 2005... :/

deletingthis346753341332d ago

I haven't once played a multiplatform game on PC that doesn't play better or look better than on console.

geth1gh1332d ago

@ Sega

That can happen, like dishonered for example. That's really the devs fault though because it really isn't a pc game, just a console emulator at that point.

Either way your still wrong for 2 reasons. First is full 1080p and beyond possible on the pc. Second is framerate. I ran dishonored at 120fps without a hiccup and that makes a difference when your on a 120hz monitor. Compare that to the 360s 30fps...

deletingthis346753341332d ago

I don't really think you understood what I was saying, but maybe I have worded it a little different than what you are used to so let me clarify. I said I have not once played a multiplatform PC game that DOESN'T look better and run better than the console version. Every game I've played always looked and played better on PC.

@SegaKnuckles86

You used a double negative. Thats probably what threw him off. Would have been better if you said "I have never played a multiplatform PC game that didn't look better and run better than the console version."

Hey, Kid Rock is not a master with crayons, but his finger paintings are exceptional.

ABizzel11332d ago

Obviously PC is better, but I'm surprised just how good the console versions look. PC has vastly superior lighting, frame rates, and is the "definitive version" if you have the option, but the console version is ok if you don't.

This goes to show just what kind of leap we'll have next generation. Look forward to better resolutions, better lighting, better frame rates, which will produce better graphics. Just not the same difference from PS2 -> PS3.

KING851332d ago (Edited 1332d ago )

One thing you have to consider when looking at these is if the PC version is set on ultra. I assume most likely it is. Based off of the console architecture you might see differences in how light or dark the game may be on each console. These comparisons I gather are only beneficial to those who own all 3 platforms, but clearly the PC version would always win due to the various mid to high end CPU's and GPU's. I say buy it on the platform of one's choice. If you have all 3 platforms then PC may be the way to go as you have the improved visuals and choice of input device.

vortis1332d ago (Edited 1332d ago )

And it's cheaper.

EDIT: $49.99 on Steam.

Imalwaysright1332d ago (Edited 1332d ago )

Its €70 on the playstation store. Paying more for the dumbed down versions. That is why i recently switched from consoles to mainly be a PC gamer. Sick and tired of the constant abuse of the industry and i love the freedom that the PC offers compared to consoles.

edit; I already got a disagree and i think i know why. The game's actual price on the PSN is € 69.99. My bad!!!

Sp1d3ynut1332d ago

I got mine from Newegg for the 360 for $47.99...no tax, no shpg. Pre-order deal. :)

NastyDaddeh1332d ago

i got it from gamefly for 39.99 usin promo code NOV20OFF... but be warned only certain gamefly games are givin keys that can be activated on steam and far cry 3 is not one them.

Sp1d3ynut1332d ago

LOL..2 disagrees. Why does God let stupid people live, yet take the good ones from us? :(

And no you don't need a $2000 PC to play it in max settings, a Radeon 6950 (a $250 card now) can do it. A Radeon 6850 (a $180 card) can play it at high settings and look so much better than on consoles

shossofe1332d ago

$50 for mobo
$50 for RAM
$50 for PSU
$50 for HDD
$50 for case
$100 for CPU
There. Fixed it. You made it sound like $250 is all you need to play it on high >.>

Hellsvacancy1332d ago

I shall bookmark your comments, after Xmas, as long as I get my compo money (i had a BAD accident at work) I shall be buying a PROPER gaming PC, not really sure what im buying though, so i may need advice

If you read this and is a PC tech head pm me please, I dont really know what im buying

MarkusMcNugen1332d ago

Thats all you need to know my man. Just go to Charts at the top and you can see how the different components stack up against each other, and there prices. Then jump on newegg.com and try to find the best deal for the hardware your looking for.

FYI, dont worry about crossfire or SLI unless your shooting for gaming enthusiast.

Tomshardware.com forums are also a really good place to ask any computer questions you might have when building.

Honestly, a good gaming rid is probably going to cost you around 700-900$ depending on the components. Maybe a little more if you're buying a monitor, case, keyboard, and things of that nature.

bunfighterii1332d ago

Why there are still console v pc comparisons eludes me.

indubitably1332d ago

This is not a vs. video, it is simply so you can see the difference between the three platforms. This video also included the medium PC, which a lot of people might want to see.
