Speaking at Play.com Live, Far Cry 2 designer Peter Redding told Ripten that the common expectation was that the PC version was going to be infinitely better than either the PS3 or 360. He also told us why that's a load of rubbish
what the hell r u serious but fps games are better on the consoles and the graphics would be better on 360 and ps3 then the pc.
didn't even know it was already runnin on consoles. well the 360 anyway
They said that console version would look as good as PC version running on 7800, 8600 or 7900 cards (if you got 8800 then buy the PC version) and there is nothing like PS3 version would be less stellar (he was referring 360 for representing console version) but if anyone of you have watched the November trailer might know that it looked much better than COD4 and was near abt crysis and if they can do better than that on consoles than its something unimginable and the game is still being optimised. Just think abt the possiblities. This will be shooter of the year 2008 for sure.
is that so... and you still believe in Santa Clause?
Yeah right, wait till you see this game running DX10 on a PC then tell me the PC version is not better looking. As far as being fun, I am sure it will be the same core gameplay on all systems, and that is the important part anyway.
I don't care about Far Cry 2.
I'll believe it when I see it.
Framerate dips and washed out colors PS3 owners will experience. 360 version however will, once again, be on par with its pc counterpart.
*Waits for the lemmings tears*
You need a girlfriend, here five bucks.
maybe it your washed out eyes that see the world at a bad framerate.
The game would be out already if they just made it for 360 and PC and it would be amazing. Instead we have to wait an extra year for the garbage PS3 version to be finished.
Where do you shop for your girlfriends? Do you import?
Just kidding btw.
Just LIKE GTA4 this game will also be better on PS3
Multiplat games that matter are all better on PS3 --COD4,DMC4,BURNOUT,AC etc
That DEFECTIVE TRASH BOX 3 FIX ME is suitable only for REPAIR SHOP not in anyones house
GT5 --The most realistic game ever runs at 1080p NATIVE at 60 FPS on PS3. Unfortunately x360 cant even do 1080P NATIVE not to even mention 1080P at 60FPS
FAR CRY 2 will also look better on PS3.
However with HAZE,KZ2 and RESISTANCE 2 there is no reason for PS3 gamers to get excited this multiplat FPS which will look better on PS3 (vs x360)
Not only that but the graphics seem a bit PlayStation 3-ish. Hope they don't hold it back and they do what the Dark Space devs are doing *making the best game they can and then trying to match the PS3 version not giving a fuc about the PS3 version being able to handle the 360's capabilites or not* Darkspace devs said that not me.
PS3 being the lead would be easier but the game would be gimped by default.
1.5, you're not talking about that BS story that was rejected the other day were that guy got cought lieing are you?. GTA4 PS3 version was said to be behind the 360 version the last we heard and it was said to have two differnt looks one having the xbox look(deeper color range) and the other having the classical PS3 look(color filtered powdered look).
UNCHARTED makes anything on x360 look like aPILE of trash
COD4/DMC4/BURNOUT are all wayyyyyy better on PS3 . BUrnout runs at 2x the speed on PS3.
The game is already gimped by default you GARBAGE BOT since X360 cant do 1080P NATIVE.
X360 will never have any game to challenge UNCHARTED graphically not to even mention KZ2/GT5
The XDR ram alone is 4.5x faster than X360's slow and inefficient GDDR3.
Too bad the GARBAGE BOX 360 verison gimped even the PC version
@POWER OF F*G
GTA4 is better on PS3 in many areas said by T2 execs themselves
"According to Gamasutra, executives in a conference call with investors first noted that the studio would be first be working on GTA IV downloadable content - exclusive to the Xbox 360 - available through until 2009. Take-Two also said that both the 360 and PS3 version of the game be visually almost identical, with the PS3 coming out slightly on top in some areas. "
@PlayBOY aka Snukadaman aka InyouMOm
did you play Burnout on your GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME?
why would i play Turok when i have UT3/COD4 and above all when i have UNCHARTED--- a game that makes all garbage box 3 FIX ME games look like pile of crap
Call of Juarez had better graphics , texture and gameplay than your lovely Uncharted, and it was exclusive to the 360 So,no need to hear your Bull$hit about Uncharted anymore the Fact is we have better games than the PS3
Why do games with PS3 in mind can't ever do this?.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
#1.8, I agree Call Of Jaurez and Prey looks better than anything I'v seen on PS3 Expect URT3 360 to look better for a number of reasons too.
whofarted on the ps3 looks better then this.
bu but but we have got another lazy port.
bu but kaz phil sniper.
were are u
my buu ray wont work.
c how stupid the fan boy section is on this web site
Power of Green:
"Uncharted was taxing PS3 lol they had to cut alot of the *****Unreal engine's***** features to get Uncharted running.lol"
- Well umm...hmm...yea, the Unreal Engine...rrrriiight...jackass. ..
Call of juarez looked like an N64 game and got 2/3 from most websites and it is compared to Uncharted???????
Uncharted is the best looking game on consoles---said by
GAMESRADAR,RIPTEN,GAMETRAILER S,GAMETAP,GAMINGAGE etc
I wish that 70% DEFECTIVE XBREAK 3 FIX ME could have 1000 enemies per screen , could do 1080P native, could have games at 1080P @60 FPS
HS --1000 enmies on screen. 10 XENONS would be needed to do this
That XBREAK 3 FIX ME as everyone has said is fit only for repiar shops/
comparing UNCHARTED to x360 games????????????
Your x360 will never have anything in its lifetime to rival UNCHARTED graphically
“The expectation is that for someone playing on a really good high-end PC, it is going to be amazing. But the console version is going to be fanastic.” So....the PC version will be superior though.
Let's face it, a vast majority of PC gamers don't ahve the kind of rig power to brag about.
Most PC gamers won't be able to see this game in the sort of quality that'll be on consoles cause they jsut dont have those super rigs no matter how much they like to lie that they do.
It will run nicely on an 7800 GTX and still look like Crysis. PC gaming has got cheaper if you look carefully. But games are relatively less in amount now, but there will be a rise from now on.
Not enough to override the comfort and enjoyment of playing this game on the couch and big screen, with a 5.1 surround and controller. I'll take the PS3 version over the others.
I have that kind of power. And about 20 of my friends do. And the ones that don't will soon because of the drop in price of hardware. I had a buddy upgrade his CPU, RAM, and Video Card this week for less than $500 and he can play anything out right now at top settings. PC gaming is cheaper than what people think it is. If you factor in the cost of an HDTV in console gaming it is actually cheaper in a lot of cases.
My PC won't be able to run this game. Fortunately I have a 360 that will be just as good :)
Roughly translated they couldn't be bothered to do the work on the PC version to take advantage of it's strengths. So they just did a quick dirty port of the 360 version after all we can treat PC users like crap.
Ho well another PC franchise bites the dust, Farcry was a flawed classic. It looks like Farcry 2 will just be flawed. Think I will take my money elsewhere (yes believe it or not some of us PC users still buy our games, shocking isn't it).
I mean, you can really pull a crysis and act like everyone has quad 8800gtx setups with 4 gigs of ddr3 can you? The real strength of a console is they're all the same(everyone with a ps3 has the same system) and these new consoles, especially the ps3, are capable of doing amazing things in both the visual and physics department. the real-world capabilities between a ps2 and a midrange PC really favored the PC last gen. however, it seems by putting an "over priced" console on the market has its advantages. It can easily hang with the high end PC systems. BTW I consider myself a PC gamer that owns a PS3 too. I don't have an interest in the x-box because my PC runs windows and is way faster than 360 and has free online. I don't hate any gaming platform.(although the Wii IS a toy) AMD FX-62 nVidia 7950gx2 OCZ 4GB ddr2 800 Reaper HPC
Far Cry 2 started out as a PC exclusive. The console versions weren't being worked on until, I think, pretty deep into the development of the PC version. I think Far Cry 2 will be perfectly fine on the PC. It's the console versions that people should be worrying about.
gijeff change ur comment as tbeir is a lie in it the 3670 is more capable than the ps3 in physics and graphics the dev tools +the gpu which i sstart of the art tech + the 3 core is much better for gaming as the cell has only 1 core and has a lot of threads that act like core its not suited for gaming but formedia processing.
The Cell is an extremely powerful processor with 8 CPU cores and is actually very well suited in particular for graphics and physics processing applications (i.e., game processes). It's actually its general processing capability that is in question (general OS tasks and operation).
"The Cell is an extremely powerful processor with 8 CPU cores and is actually very well suited in particular for graphics and physics processing applications (i.e., game processes). "
Thats not exactly correct. The Cell has only one general purpose core. The SPEs are specialyzed cores; you can think about them as specialyzed co-processors and they are not suited for every kind of task. General game code, AI, etc, don't run well in a SPE environment.
Also, the Cell in the PS3 doesn't have 8 working SPEs. One is disactivated to increase production yelds. Another one is reserved for OS tasks. That leaves 6 for gaming use.
So what I understand from this is...
1) The game has been passed thru the consolisation process..
2) The game wont be the best on PC...unless you have a high end PC
It's a well-known fact that this game started development as a PC-only game, and has been a PC-exclusive for the better part of 3+ years. Console versions have only began very recently when R&D testing with engine showed that the game could feasibly be ported over to consoles. In other words, the existence of the console versions have had virtually no effect on the PC version of the game. No such "consolation" process has ever occured.
Theres a reason the 360 was designed like a PC( and double releases of course). 3 full cores and 6 threads.
each core cant handle 2 full threads because of CACHE penaly and weak power.
PS3 has 9 cores ( 1 PPE(upgraded core of XENON)+ 9 super powerful and super efficient SPEs) cores in total
The CELL is 10x more powerful than the XENON
each SPE alone is more powerful than the XENON
no x360 game runs at 1080P NATIVE
LOL XTARD arent you even ashamed to talk about XENON which is a massively downgraded POWER PC CORE and is 1/10 as powerful as the CELL
Power of Pee, the master of the lame excuses and the river of tears
Far Cry would have run at 1080P if it was PS3 and PC.
Unfortunately just because of that TRASH BOX 3 FIX ME version the game would be downgraded to 720P
cuz X360 doesnt have the power to do 1080P NATIVE. It cant even do that with its LIVE games not to even mention that it would have been 1080P @60 fps had it been PS3 exclusive
Did you play Turok on your PS3 ??
did you played halo 3? *cough* 640p *cough*
if the 360 was never made we would never see games like gta4/farcry2/oblvion/fallout3 /and many mor emultiplats as there is no way those games could have been made to console witout the 360 dev tools i know sony trolls know this it must be scaring them
If I choose the console version, I will go with the 360, it has better control for fps games , less framrate problem , better lighting and texture oh one more thing superior online service
yeah, everybody have problems with the framrates
This only seems to confirm the game's content is the same. The fact that some computer displays can run at over 1920x1080, use FSAA and/or AF for improved graphics, mouse and keyboard, more expensive and so on. Blah blah, same old console vs PC arguments.
I predict that, as with most instances, the primary differences between the versions will consist of the ability to ramp up the AA and resolution on the higher-end PCs. I also surmise that the extra total RAM of said PCs will allow for slightly higher resolution textures. Other than that, I expect the game to essentially look very similar regardless of the platform you play on (as is the case with every game in recent memory).
I just noticed from the links I posted that *HarryEtTubMan* trolls all over the web lol.
He trolls Youtube lol.
Tidus mentions Uncharted lol UCDF looks like a cartoon with painted taxtures and poor bump mapping.
ala gears of war
but uncharted looks MUCH better than anything youll ever see on the 360. But since youve never actually played through the game, you wont even know. Oh well.
Uncharted will look miless better than anything you will ever see on x360
Uncharted was taxing PS3 lol they had to cut alot of the Unreal engine's features to get Uncharted running.lol
Uncharted had painted looking textures. lol
PS3 and its taxtures making it chugggggggg.
its not even using the Unreal Engine. BTW, UT3 looks WAY better than gears. Why? its running on the PS3.
Uncharted doesn't use the Unreal engine and it looks a lot better BTW
OMFG! Says the man whoose opinion is ALWAYS right, and everyone else is classed as a "malice driven spite counter comment trying to spread fud against MS and its pixie workers", and has no idea why he gets so many disagrees? I thought you knew everything about games POG? I`d love it if you could find me a few reviews of UDF mentioning the not so hot bump mapping, im just curious you see as i think its graphically right up there with Gears in the GFX dept, aswell as countless reviews (unless you think they were paid off by Sony?). If you had played right the way through (or played at all?) you would of seen it, but seeing as your one of the worst fanboys on this site who thinks the 360 is be all and end all of games machines, well........... Your credibility is zero, your knowledge of the industry is zero. You Sir fail on SSOO many basic levels. UDF using the Unreal engine is it? and a gimped version of the Unreal engine at that? Im also curious, if you say your not a "fanboy" why don`t you comment in the gamezone and not the fanboy zone? Why is that i wonder?
Uncharted doesn't even USE unreal engine 3 re-re. =/ It has it's own engine. Durp.
So this game is up and running on the 360 and looking good according to the game designer, nice very nice. But no mention of the PS3, I'm smelling lesser version for the ps3, just like Rainbow Six Vegas 2 due next week..
Wilester asks: PS3 supports up to 14 players and Xbox 360 supports up to 16. Why the difference?
Phil Therien: Dedicated server support and a lot of very complex technical stuff. I probably cant give a good answer on this but I know that the limitations come from technical issues and not design decisions.
myiagros asks: Not wishing to start a fanboy war, but are there any differences (performance or otherwise) between the console versions, apart from the aforementioned number of players online?
Phil Therien: Not really. A few minor differences in graphics as usual, but nothing major.
2 more AAA games that will be better on the 360, yet again.
PS3 online limitations comes from tecnical issues? Are you having a laugh? Why dont you try telling that to Insomiac who seem to have no problem with 60 online.
Yep straight from the game designers mouth...
now go eat a humble pie.
Console players including me got the face the fact that pc always going to be better then consoles. IF you dont like it your cant face the truth.
I have a quad core with 6gb of ram and a x1950xtx .
Should be able to run it on medium hopefully.
It's important to frame in what ways, however. I'll concede the ability to set higher screen resolutions and FSAA levels (which aren't terribly substantive in my personal view). However, I favor the overall console experience for single-player games usually, primarily for things such as the comfort and enjoyment of a couch, controller, HDTV, and 5.1+ surround sound system.
6gb ram? na! i smell something, maybe its a 360 burning.
4gb of ram and u need vista/xp 64bit, no other system can read 4gb of ram, let alone 6. 3gb of ram is max readable in any 32bit systems.
Another question, quad core? and 1950xtx. you need a gpu update.
quad is overkill, you'd get much more fps from a 8800gtx, or higher.
Another thing is Dx10 is nothing special. Too many ppl have been sucked into the dx10 trap. Get a dx10 card, but its better to use it for dx9. Faster fps. Higher rez.
Dx10 effects, can be done on ps3 using spu's. Its pretty easy. and actually fast.
u can run crysis in dx10 mode on a dx9 card(I ran it max on a 1900xtx), its slower, because you need alot of bandwidth and a kickass shader card. i.e 8800gts/x/sli, or ati 3800x2 etc.
Point is, You will be hard pushed to see any difference, other then res and max aa, which are not adjustable on 360/ps3.
i know i need a gpu update. But want the point if the 9800 x2 out soon?
And i have got 6gb. you can believe what you want but i dont bullshit.
i did get a x2900xt but it sucked and i send it back lol.
I know dx10 nothing special. but some fall in to the way in ment to be play logo by nvidia. Well the 8000 series are good cards.
So you think ps3 and 360 are as powerful as pc today? lol
why the hate on the 360? Yes both can do dx10 features.
Also i have vista 64 bit.
e.g sniper believes the development is on the leading console which is ps3. the developers are saying this too hide up the worst version which is on xbox 360. ill will be playing my lag free version on my perfection 3.
Depending on your rig its always going to be the way I mean if the game is designed to support certain features which can only be achieved say by a 8800GTX in Sli then yeah there you go.
But console version of games are not that far behind even the most high end of PC's now when you compare the graphics, take Bioshock for example there is hardly that much difference on a high end PC and an Xbox 360...
The best value in gaming will always be the games console, and in the next generation after this one I think we will see monsterously powered gaming consoles for around £300 or less.
360 in everything !!!! thats final !!!! the BOSS has spoken now drop your 360 and buy ps3 :P
lol, fanboys. be happy that this game comes to consoles. i am sure both versions will be ok. but i hope that the ps3 version is better (the hardware is witout doubt better, but programmer must use it).
The comparative not is with Bioshock , is with Oblivion , or Just Cause . Not is posible the same game with 256 mb of RAM and with 2 gb or more . Oblivion is the better example . Just Cause for example, in PC not has HDR and nex gen features, but has clearly more draw distance and better textures than the console version . This is easy in PC . Yes, this games has streaming, but the RAM of the PCs is decisive in this style games . Assassin's Creed , only use 1 gb of RAM in XP ,or 1200 - 1500 MB in Vista , and not is a FPS - a FPS needs better textures- and not has many vegetation in game, is a desert ;) - this also needs very large space in the RAM and VRAM And we have a example of Far Cry / Far Cry instints in PC / consoles . The RAM space is a big problem for these games .
The rain and thunderstorms dnt look that believeable.living in South Africa, watchng thngs on the rest of africa.visited austrailia on holiday.and ive never seen rain fall like that. Well,when starting
Unfortunetly with Piracy on PC its not a very attractive platform to release exclusively too, even the 360 has its piracy problems but still will probably generate more sales than the Pc version easily, chuck in the yet to be hacked PS3 and the sales will be much better all round. If you want the PC version to be superior then Piracy has to be stamped out..... LOL there's no chance of that happening, so why should dev's waste ALOT of money on making it when someone can download it for free.
I will buy this game.
