Pick your poison.
Not a game to judge by graphics...its pretty but the game play I tried (PS3) was awful. As for the comparison...what's with the 'fog' in the X version? Looked like PS2 draw distance issues! Are we debating the setup for the comparison or is the X version 'washed out' like that?
Yeah, I see what you mean about the "fog", the PS3 version definitely looks a lot crisper or something
Depth of field? Anti-aliasing?
I tried the demo and I couldn't handle it either...I was hoping they were going to do a comparison between NHL 09 and NHL 2k9
My copy of NHL 2K9 should arrive in the mail today. The demo looked beautiful on my 360. Crystal clear and the colors really popped. The sounds in this game are awesome, as well. They really nailed the sound of players getting sent into the boards! I have a very nice 5.1 setup and when playing the demo at high volumes it really sounds like you are at the rink. Very cool.
I wonder what all those past comparisons would have been like if they had turned on RGB full. The PS3 version looks slightly more vibrant but no major difference. The minute difference is inconsequential.
Wait a minute. So if this magical RGB is supposed to make all the games superb looking than why isn't it always on? Why did Sony have it off to begin with?
Switching on Full RGB over a HDMI connection can actually make quite a difference. As for why it doesn't default on, I dont know, but when first buying my PS3 I went thrugh and set up the settings how I wanted them, including Full RGB. Once switched on, it remains on. It's hardly a hardship.
It's not on default because not all TVs support the Full RGB setting. They should have programmed it to adjust automatically to your TV set, as the 360 does. Instead you have to do everything manually with the PS3.
Because some people actually prefer the RGB setting set to Limited. As some TVs, automatically going to Full will cause crushed blacks, especially if the TV in question has an HDMI "low" setting. And typically, people who calibrate their TVs for optimal picture quality would rather use HDMI low over RGB Full. Both being on, will cause inaccurate colors and crushed blacks. Changing the brightness doesn't adjust just black levels alone, so having a higher brightness will give a washed out look. THAT'S WHY.
PS3 for the win.
Why do these videos exist? for people that have either one console their only option is to buy it for that console. For those that have both, buy it for the one in which the controller seems more natural for
There's games like GTA IV where there is a difference; a person with both consoles who doesn't care about DLC gets the better-looking and smoother-running PS3 version, while the person who wants the extra DLC gets the 360 version. Because there ARE games with noticeable differences, comparisons exist, even if 80-90% of them are just to fuel flame wars.
Mitchell, your wrong buddy. I personally have tested both version on my 60 inch Sony and the ps3 version looks awful compared to the 360. Remember, the 360 version is the only one that is in true hd while the ps3 isn't. And you can totally see it on a big screen.
not to star a war ..but your claim is false..GTA ps3 could run better on ps3...that i don't know...but it does not look better
"Remember, the 360 version is the only one that is in true hd" 360 version ran at 1080p? That's news to me.
360 version ran in 720p, PS3 version 630p or something. "1080p is the holy grail of gaming". You can say that again ;) How many PS3 exclusives this holiday supports the 1080p resolution that Sony used to brag so much about?
Personally, I wish they made the 360 version in 640p like the PS3 version. Not for sake of fanboy arguements. But the fact that the 360 one suffers from some heavy dithering effect being in 720p. Don't believe me? Well then see for yourself if you truely have both consoles Skadoosh. Run them on the same TV. Then look for a sign in the distance in GTA IV 360 and look at the same sign for the PS3 version. You will see the 360 version pixelated and scatterd, while the PS3 version is more clearly defined. Blurrier yes, but not dithered like the 360 version. So, it actually makes the 360 version look like crap. Even being in a higher resolution. Here are some samples of what I'm talking about. http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... And again, if you truely have a 60" Sony TV and really have a PS3. YOU WOULD SEE THIS. I have a 46" samsung and it bugs the hell out of me. Another example: http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... And if you're wondering why it does that, it's because of the rendering technique that rockstar uses. And for some reason, when it goes from 720p upscaled to 1080p, it gets worse. So if you have a 720p TV only, you might not see this. But on a 1080p TV, oh yes. Crappy dithering.
not very pretty on either console honestly. Not that it was an ugly game at all. It was amazing for a Grand Theft Auto but both versions had serious problems. I completed the game on both and the 360 version stuttered and had bad pop in issues at high speeds but the ps3 version looked way too gritty and dark so the more stable frame rate didn't make it any better.
Where is a NHL Hitz sequal or better yet a Wanye Gretsky 3d Hockey?
wayne gretzky 3D hockey for the N64 was AWESOME. NHL hitz was good also. their is a gretzky hocky game coming out exclusive for the ps3 in the future....
Is it me or does the 360 version look blurry when compared to the PS3 version? Both are looking good it seems like the days of PS3 getting inferior ports are gone and these comparisons should go with it. I guess it could benefit multi-console owners but still seems like they cause more flames than help.
Times change.Some multiplats are better on PS3 than 360 while others are vice versa.I think UT3 was better on the PS3 than 360 but Rainbow Six Vegas 2 was better on the 360. PS3 Burnout>360 Burnout PS3 Mirrors Edge>360 Mirrors Egde 360 Bioshock>PS3 Bioshock 360 Fallout 3>PS3 Fallout 3 Either way I've got choices and could not be more satisfied.
No, UT3 on 360 was better than the PS3 version. I have both versions.
PlayStation 3 is sharper with better colours, but that's if you're being picky. If this was slightly better on the XBOX 360 you would be hearing from editors he XBOX 360 version is the best to get crap, lol. From the users you'll most likely hear the XBOX 360 is cheaper with better mutliplatform games. Also talking about the library etc. so this video should shut some people down. In the end I think these videos are pointless unless there is a significant difference like in Quake Wars (vehicles) or Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas (Sharpness).
[[PS3 for the win.]]
Ps3 looks better,and I'm still not going to buy the game
PS3 for the win
PS3 for the win!
wow am i seeing PS3 looking better than xbox 360? Xbox 360 version is blurry. Looks like GT used Ps3's Full RGB this time.
What is this magical RGB you guys talk about???? If it makes games look much better than why isn't it always on? Why did Sony choose to have it off by default?
Wait didn't you claim you have a PS3? And you don't know what the RGB setting is? What a load of rubbish you got going on here.
Not everyone knows about these things, I didn't have a clue untill all the fanboys started crying about these comparisons and how full rgb wasn't on. Not everyone has the knowledge or the will to know about these things, most people just wan't to plug it in and play.
its the option where colors pop and blacks are black. Funny how no one cares about the game only the rivalry
Better, sharper, juicier:)
you manually customize your ps3 in settings to best suit your display & audio copabilities. if you rocking a a 1080i or 1080p hd tv then go to settings & turn off rgb. Its really noticable with games like gta4, warhawk & mgs4. Look in the distance of these games. its blurry. Now go back to settings & turn RGB on. Look at the distances & see how much farther you can see. that's draw in distances & the clarity is sharper. That makes colors look more defined as well. If you play a game check the back of its box to find its native resolution. Ps3 games are built for hd. you have to make sure that you manually select the proper resolution or the distances will be blurry again. 720p select & then de-select the others. 420p is locked though. Xbox360 has a chip that does this automatically. I'm hoping for a Sony update like that but it might be patented by m$. Idk. This is why comparisons by gametrailers in the past was so very frustrating because they acted like they didnt know. its pretty ridiculous as well to argue about colors as well when they left rgb off. All they had to do was turn it on or fix the settings on the tv to match xbox360. RgB on would have destroyed most of xboxes multiplats back then.
both look ok to me ! Bit weired all the comments are ps3 kids ! 360 guys must be too busy playing games !
lol, PS3 for the win
whatever makes you feel better lol.
does anyone even know anything about hockey on here? and do you know how to play hockey in a game? If you dont know any of those, you shouldnt even be on here talking about a game, that you will more than likely not even buy, or a sport you for a fact havent even played. (I realise how GT always wants to start flame wars, but seriously, they need to cut that sh!t out and let ppl talk about the games normally. I know it might be hard for ppl to do on this site, but at least TRY!!) On Topic: I tried the demo of this on PS3, and yea the controls are horrible, compared to the NHL 09 demo on 360. Me personally, Ive always liked NHL 09 over NHL 2K9, simply because its made in my hometown of Vancouver, and the EA Studio here, everyone on the staff knows everything there is to know about hockey, and thats why its always a more superior, cleaner hockey game than 2K9. Thats just my opinion. I cant believe im actually praising an EA Game!!
I do! It's like soccer on ice I think.
No I've only ever been to Canada once.
