GEARS vs. Resistance

Gears of War. Resistance: Fall of Man. Two great next-gen shooters, but which one to buy? Here's the point-by-point breakdown.

The story is too old to be commented.

GEARS FOR THE WIN!!!

Lets start a list of games that run smoother and look better on the 360, if you don't believe my list go to the reviews on ign, then you will see the light.

Call of Duty 3
Tony Hawk Project 8
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Need for Speed: Carbon

So far the Ps3 is getting PWNED on exclusive and multiformat games.

All more reasons not to buy a ps3.

PS3alltheway3927d ago

YOU DO KNOW 360 CAME OUT 1S SO THE DEVELOPERS HAVE MOR TIME OF THE DEV KIT . PS3 CAME OUT LATE DEV. HAS LESS TIME TO DEVELOPE.

TheXgamerLive3927d ago

much the exact same time. So it doesn't matter since it's been equal time worked on both. So it's only an ok result from sony and to be honest I think IGN was being rather nice on ranking resistance. I mean play them both and you'll see there's only 1 true winner here.

Gears of War !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is just plain silly... Devs have had final dev kits for X360 for almost 15 months now, while some devs have complained they haven't gotten final dev kits for PS3 before august this year.

Secondly it has been reported for all of the games you've mentioned, that lead development has been on X360 (obviously because they didn't have final dev kits for PS3).

Thirdly, don't start with the delay thing, since, as just mentioned, final dev kits weren't being shipped to the majority of developers before august this year.

TheXgamerLive3927d ago

The dev.s can, are, and have been working on titles LONG before dev. kits came out, they do this on a PC by using system specs and the game engine, It's easy and has been and is being done for a long time, how else do you think almost 2 years ago you saw MGS4 footage, of course which looks like crap today compared to the CGi they mostly showed back then.

So no, your wrong, developers have been working on titles for same time frames basically, especially sony duh and the R-FOM title.

Sorry, no excuses this time.

So are you saying that Resistance was developed with beta dev kits. Remember, sony pushed the release of the PS3 back at least twice. I'm thinking that the PS3 dev kits were probably out months before that.

The only reason the dev kits were not called final kits is because the machine hadn't been released yet. I mean, it's not like much has changed as for as the hardware is concerned since the first promised release date of the PS3 which was spring of 06.

All I'm saying is this, don't blame the dev kits, I'm thinking that gears and resistance were both being worked on long before the x360 was released.

both games is awsome

1ST GEN GAME OF PS3 GOING HEAD TO HEAD AGAINTS 360 2ND GEN GAME WOW RESISTANCE U THE MAN.
GOW 2 YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT USES UNREAL ENGINE 3.0
RESISTANCE 1 YEAR OF DEVELPMENT BUILT ON PS3 HARDWARE WHICH ITS HARD TO DEVELOP CELL IS MONSTER

marcusfenix3927d ago (Edited 3927d ago )

IBLOWPS3ALLTHEWAY, considering all of the delays and such, most of the PS3 games have been in development for the same time, making your 1st vs. 2nd gen argument a moot point.

Yeah with Resistance's beefed up PS2 graphics LOL and Gears of Wars mindblowing visuals that set the bar for any game visually. Mass Effect will take the crown from gears.

The graphics chipset in the 360 is superior, that is why there is such a tight NDA grip o the specs for the RSX, the cell processor is an AMAZING piece of technology, but not for real-time gaming. PS3 is nice, but if you want games and better looking games get the 360.

Developers will develop for the 360 more, since it can easily be ported to the PC, they can use a large majority of the 360 code on a PC, especially next-gen gpu's.

TECHNICALLY THE GPU IN THE 360 IS A GENERATION AHEAD OF THE PS3 GPU, GET OVER IT, NOTHING YOU SAY WILL CHANGE THAT. IT HAS DOUBLE THE POLY PERFORMANCE, TRIPLE THE VERTICES PERFORMANCE.

360 GAMERS HAVE NEXT GEN HARDWARE
PS3 GAMERS HAVE NEXT GEN MOVIE PLAYER

NUFF SAID

Scrumptious3927d ago

That's what I'm sayin! Since the PS3 was delayed from spring 06, that gave developers an extra 8 months to "polish" these games, since Sony said the only thing holding the PS3 back was the poo-ray diode, right? So this 1st gen PS3 vs 2nd gen 360 arguement has no truth.

JIN KAZAMA3927d ago

will u shut the hell up. The first gen PS3 game is being compared to 2nd 360 game. What do u have to say to that. RFOM is getting just as good reviews as GOW. So please, shut up. Go play your GOW.

Munky3927d ago (Edited 3927d ago )

The reviews for RFOM (89%) are not as good as the reviews for GOW (95%), check it out. Actually here, I'll help you. ;)

Insomaniac has been working on this title for a while. They are a premiere developer for Sony and are get special treatment from Sony. How long has Sony displayed RFOM?

"But the relatively plain-Jane special effects and textures just don't match up with Xbox 360 shooters such as F.E.A.R. or Call of Duty 3, let alone Gears. "

Even newer titles that have been in development in a shorter amount of time beats RFOM in graphics.

Welcom3 chang3, still dont know how a Duke-Nukem-like game even came close.

UrbanJabroni3927d ago

The recent post about consumers thinking the PS3 is under $300 shows the lack of information in the general population.

Everyone tries to make the argument that "you can't compare two games because one is first gen and the other is second gen." Unfortunately, that is EXACTLY what most consumers walking into a store are going to do. They are going to look at GOW and look at Resistence and assume the 360 has better graphics. THe average consumer isn't going to say "but the 360 devs had more time with the final hardware." They are going to compare the games available and thats it. Period.
