In an article on IGN, the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the upcoming MLB 2K7 are briefly compared. Somewhat surprisingly it seems that there are some significant differences between the two...
Looks like they built this one on xbox360 again then ported it over to PS3, that's the advantage for 360 because it's easyer to develop for good job i'm not one bit interested in this game. bring on Sony's inhouse games and i can always pick this up for my 360 if i'm really desperate...
Oh please SimmoUK even if it is made on the 360 and ported to the PS3, start to get used to it then. Which still means multiplatform games (which are the large numbers of games over the lifecycle of the consoles) will be best on the 360. Seen in the past (COD3, FNR3) seen in the future. Anyone would be best of buying a 360 if one likes games. Even the exclusives are most and best on 360. SImple. If you like BluRay movies buy a PS3. Gaming is second on it. But games nowadays are made on PC and then optimalized for PS3 or 360 or Wii. Not even ports. The PS3 just ain't a gaming machine. How many times have to be made clear to die hard Sony fanboys the PS3 just can't cope the next gen games??? What about the online part? 30 players on 360, 12 for PS3? That's not problem of a port, that's problem on a online bad service. What about missing the rumble in the game (see page one of the article!) SimmoUK you don't own a 360.
"SimmoUK you don't own a 360." - Because of course, you'd know better than he would? http://live.xbox.com/en-GB/... Looks like he plays on this non-existant 360 quite a bit, to me. Maybe you shouldn't catagorise people so quickly in future. And maybe you could tell me what "optimalized" means, because the dictionary sure as hell can't! And while you're busy looking into the future ("seen in the future") at what ports are going to be inferior on PS3, do you think you could give me the lottery numbers for next week? As for the story, I think this is obviously bad news for Sony (and fanboys, don't you dare try to spin it as good news!) but it's definitely not the end of the world. Let's be honest they have shrugged off much larger problems than a slightly inferior port of one single game in the past. Like most Brits, I really couldn't care less about baseball games anyway.
hey doinky, just to let you know, you cant "seen into the future", LOL! (oh that's rich!). And if you can let me know, i have a couple of stock picks i'd like you to do, and some lottery tickets to make out. There'll be some money in for you. You said "seen into the future" LOL!
Legendairymark Who says the Simmo UK on Live is the same that registered on this site??? I mean come on, a guy defending the PS3 that much you should think he'd own a PS1 and at least a PS2 also, but: "Consoles Owned PC, Xbox, Xbox 360" Bet that's a totally different person there
who cares? 2k7 franchise blows worse than EA. MLB the Show will have everything I need, just like NBA '07 and NHL '07 rock the house, period. 2k7 can keep those "989" leftovers in the doghouse where they belong. =]
NBA 07??? I guess you dont mind playing crap! NBA 2k7: 84.9% NBA 07: 64.2% But what would you expect from a Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiders fan! ;)
Yeah I would make fun of your sports game choices, but seeing that your a raider fan I feel sorry enough for you already lol.
NHL07 is garbage. NHL2K7 is real hockey...but then again, I doubt you have ever laced up a pair of hockey skates in your life so I don't expect you to know the difference between arcade style hockey to a sim. I've said it once and i'll say it again, if you want a true hockey experience get NHL2K7.
WTF are you smoking you obviously never picked up a basketball either. Cuz Live is BBBBBBBBBUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLL $$$$$$$$#########!!!!!!!!TTTTTT TTTTTTT
..... idiots, still comparing ports
news for Sony but hey, I'm NOT going to make too much of this.....yes, alot of multiplatform games look better on 360, but honestly I don't think its a "significant" difference that takes away from the fun of the game.....for example: I was watching a friend recently show off FNR 3 on his PS3, and yeah I thought it looks better on my 360, but it wasn't like "wow" mine is so much better.....he thought it was great and loves the game....still I have to admit its ironic(and funny) that ALL the Sony claims of raw power, superior graphics, the cell, 1080p, etc. that 360 games simply look better....don't worry Sonyfanboys, I know you're going to tell me yeah BUT, dev's need more time to optimize/gain experience with PS3, and yes I do agree that the games will start to look more and more impressive on the PS3, BUT that goes for both consoles....well at any rate, like I said, as long as the games are interesting and fun this isn't a "significant" problem....at least I don't think so.
"PS3 launch titles will be significantly superior." -Ken Kutaragi We're just holding them to it.
this is good to know being that i like the xbox360 already anyway but it's nothing unusual :/ sony just needs to step up there weak game console :) oh my bad their computer entertainment system :/ (YEAH RIGHT)
Seriously who gives a sh1t about ports... of course developers are doing the easiest thing right now and thats porting games to the PS3... the system just came out 2 and half months ago... baseball is corny is hell anyway.... won't be buying this for 360 or the ps3
how can you still be a sony fan after all the lies they have fed you ? get some self respect people. fool a fanboy once shame on you, fool a fanboy twice shame on them, fool a fanboy three times shame on them, fool a fanboy four times shame on them, fool a fan boy five times shame on them, fool a fan boy six times shame on them....... do you see where this is going ?
Dude! that was seriously stupid, your point was made stupid, by how you put it, sorry
will be better on the Xbox 360 due to its familiar PC like architecture. The PS3 requires a completely different approach to game development. Hence the reason why developers have been angry as to why they have to learn something new when you could have made it more familiar. The only reason why games can be ported in the first place is due to the Cell's PPU. But I really doubt they have taken the time to fully use any of its SPU's. Especially when they are just trying to launch a game on several platforms at once.
i wish EA still had the rights to MLB games. they were so much better compared to 2k baseball game. Maybe 2k will do a better job this time around, because MLB 2k6 blew.
....how many multiplatform games there are and will be? In fact, most games are multiplatform. It's plainly obvious that these multiplatform games will be developed for the 360 and then ported to the PS3. Let's, just for a second, buy into your fanboy logic, and it's not that the 360 is a better console, it's that the PS3 is receiving ports that explains why the 360 versions are better. Who cares? The point is that the 360 versions are better and will continue to be better, for whatever reason. Since most games are multiplatform, why buy a PS3? So far, the 360 exclusives are putting the PS3 exclusives to shame. Additionally, the PS3 is losing many of its exclusives due to its lackluster start. So whats left for Sony fanboys? Well, the few exclusives that Sony may or may not keep, may or may not be better than 360 exclusives some time in the future......possibly. Wow, this is a far cry from what people thought the PS3 would be like a year ago. Oh yeah, and the PSN is still very inferior to LIVE. Maybe if Sony started charging for it, they could actually hire some software types to make it worthwhile. Just a thought.
Xbox 360: out first, larger installed base, easier to program/develop for. PS3: Out second, overpriced, and not selling. Gets ports from 360 for ALL multi-platform games, games which will look and play bette on 360 and have more features (especially online). Last gen: ports from PS2 to Xbox. This gen: ports from 360 to PS3. Welcom Chang3!
it's be being developed on the ps3 and 360 at the same time - that doesn't necessarily make it a port... why don't you think the 360 version is a port and they're dev'ing it first on the ps3? (oh, yes, that's coz the ps3 is a nightmare to code for, i forgot).... besides, have any of you guys tried to port a game between two wildly different h/w architectures?... thought not. please go out and learn something about game development before you post messages about game development. (and yes, before you ask - I have developed games before).
I guess that just means that developers can make better games on the 360 than on the PS3. Whether it's due to porting or the 360 just being a console better suited for gaming, the end result is the same. Multiplatform games are better on the 360.
And how many more month of development time do we have? I know the PS3 version of NBA 2k7 ended up being superior to the 360 version in graphics, animation, and AI processing.
Actually no... http://sports.ign.com/artic... Quote "The 360 version simply looks better. The colors pop. The animations, at this point, run smoother. So much for spending $600."
looks like evidence to me! BURNED ; ] >
Which one was supposed to be better DJ? X360 (84.9%) XBOX (82.8%) PS2 (81.1%) PS3 (80.6%)
he always does this talks trash then runns away . well DJ u've been court with ur pants down again :) . DJ = LIE
Getting average scores from Gamerankings doesn't actually prove that I was "lying", as you so eloquently put it. The development team itself has stated in interviews that they were able to achieve more natural graphics because of the RSX GPU, and more AI functions for the crowd. The PS3 version came out about a month after the 360 version, so if they spend a little more time on MLB it's quite possible that they'll get the same result with this title. 2K sports has separate teams for each sport though, so we'll see if the NBA team brings over some of their experience over to polish up the PS3 version.

Cuz he just nailed it in the head!! Perfectly said Dusk! Multiplatform games look better on the 360! The 360 has better exclusives! The 360 has a better online service! The 360 is $200 cheaper (soon to be $300) I CANT see why anybody would want to waste $600 on a system full of lies! Well I guess you can still watch Talladega Nights in HD! :)
PS3 will be inferior too the 360's, hell for that matter all PS3 games will be! Defiant Jackass
gamerankings all you want. I play games based an WHAT I LIKE, not some pencil head sitting in a room pouring out his opinions to me on his keyboard. I've made this argument so many times, its like microwaved vomit now. Ugly, stinky, and no one wants it. So continue to bask in w/e 2K7 MLB "glory" -- I'll take "the Show anyday. P.S. - you guys might wanna actually play the games first instead of referencing gamerankings, blah, dot, blah, com that way you can have an educated debate about the pros and cons of particular said games instead of screaming from the rooftops "mines better" see, see, see? Its so primary shcoolish. Case in point -- my friend works for one of the most premier high-emd electronics dealers in the U.S. Right here in Texas. What does the owner choose to display in his shop on the Pioneer Pro Plasmas and SNE Bravia SXRD2's? hmmm...the PS3 running NBA '07 in stunning 1080p on a 70" inch screen. People just stop and stare at the wonderful eye candy. He's either playing that or Blackhawk Down is running and looks and sounds kick ass! And guess what? He doesn't even sell the PS3. He's got it in there to show off the blu-ray player and superb picture quality compared to any other blu-ray player on the market. It looks great! Believe me. The place is called Bjorn's. He knows Spielberg, Lucas, (I mean really knows them)Hollywood and Washington Insiders and does installs for the Spurs, Mavericks, TEXANS, Stars, Cowboys and Rockets players. He might know a thing or two about picture quality. You can dog MLB 2k7 all you want -- I could care less. I'm not a 2k7 fan (not big on ports, except for Madden and it's getting worse each year on all platforms) anyway. Like I said -- if I WANT to buy a baseball game anyway it'll be SNE's "The Show". Besides I'm not sure how my Dodgers are gonna do anyway this year with Schmidt (the traitor) out there so I'm not all that hyped up about it anyway. Besides, one of the Cardinals should've been on the cover of this game and the SHOW (namely D. Eckstein) -- seeing that they waxed San Diego's, NYCE's, and Detroit's Asses last year. I bet half you guys on here don't even know what hitting for the cycle is much less what division your team is in (if you've got one). You're just pissin' in your pants 'cause youre so happy that a game for the PS3 has gotten a bad review so far vs. the 360. So you feel you need to put in your 2 cents worth to try and make a point. Point well taken. MLB the Show will be my game IF i decide to pick up the 'ol pasttime, and if not I'll still be draining threes with 24 on '07 and feeding your goalie puck-cakes evertime I hit the zone with John Madden from the mighty NJ Devils. That game is something else. =] P.S. - NHL '07 is the Truth
Seriously...puck cakes? What that supposed to be smack talk?
A virgin megastore lol hahahahhahahahahaha!
Damn Juevani/ Zues, you laugh at your own jokes?
Maddens Raiders, So your saying you would buy a TV with bad reviews? You would invest in a car with bad reviews? You would purchase a cell phone with bad reviews? If you answer yes to any of those questions than your as dumb as the Raiders owner for hiring a 30 year old coach!
Your right why would i buy anythign i felt wasen't all that great, that's why i have a PS3 and not an Xbox 360, you jacka+sses really need to get over the 360, it's nothing but an overated piece of garbage, i don't like the exclusive games on it, i love my PS3, the controller is better to play games with for a start, even the ridiculous FPS, that's always been a dumb justification for your console but hey, if that's the case your all crap at video games because you need a spoon fed controller to play games with, or wait it's just like any other controller there all controllers, they can play any game .............................. ..........
All I have to say is GameRankings.com averages every single review of a game ever listed. If you don't have money like me to buy every game for every console and compare them head to head....GameRankings is the place to go. Now from my personal comparissons...I am right on Par with all the reviews and head to head comparissons stated on many web sites. Every single game I have for the 360 looks and plays better than every sinlge ps3 version of the same game. Thats the Truth. Its not even close in most cases. I have come to realize that the ps3 most likely will never match the 360 in regards to graphics and game performance. Now, I know that won't sit well with a few sony fanatics...but it doesn't change the fact that I own all 3 next gen systems and every single game out for the 360 and the ps3. And the 360 is clearly better for games and its online offerings. But, I'm still hopefull for something great at some point for the ps3. But I'm super elated about my purchases my 360's. Its amazing even to me that a 400 dollar console outperforms a 600 dollar console.... Next gen is here...its now...its exciting...and its affordable.
he makes me laugh, he thinks he's some gams journalist, i can think and see for myself thanks very much, there's a reason i'm a Sony fanboy and decided to buy a PS3, it's because there is nothing better dumba+s!
knows that a lot of its games were over-hyped and got much higher scores than they deserved. Tell anyone who's played Perfect Dark Zero that the game got almost unanimous scores of 9.0 and they'd freak. Either way, I don't buy Topgamers claims of "360 games look and perform better than PS3 titles", especially after seeing the new footage of Lair, Motorstorm, and F1 championship. Hell, Sony hasn't even shown us their really big titles for the year and we're already seeing a noticeable power gap. Those E3 '05 specs were a lot more truthful than many people realize. Come on, we're only two months into the console's life cycle and we're already seeing a PS3 power advantage? I can't imagine what the gap will be like within a three-year period.
Of course you wouldn't buy my observations from my personal experience actually playing the ps3 and the xbox 360. ha ha ha ha ha .... You are blind buddy. And you are ignorant because you don't even own both systems. So you are speaking with no first hand knowledge what so ever. I'm not talking about games to come...I'm talking about what is out now...and me actually buying and playing the games for both systems. The 360 games look and play much better. Just like all the head to heads say...just like the Spike Tv at the Apollo games comparisson concluded..... You can't see can you DJ...ha ha ha ha ha...Get over it buddy. Everyone who has played both systems knows and understands fully that the 360 s much better for games and online in every aspect. Get over it. The war is over. ha ha ha ha ha P.S. I loved Perfect Dark. The graphics are beautiful in HD and the gameplay is fun. Online is a blast as well. The average of 9.0's for that game are right on. And with it selling over a million copies...I know I'm not alone.
perfect dark zero was a good game , i still play it on and of the on line is fun and the game was very good all round . DJ u must be the biggest sony fanetic noob i have ever come across . the 360 IS better then the ps3 this is fact . live with it lol :)
top gamer is right as far as ive seen, 360 games just look better. im not a computer person i dont know all the specs and crap from either. but i know what looks better and thats all i need. ps3 can have all the power in the world (which i dont believe either) but if the games dont look better then they just dont look better. GET OVER IT DJ
