See how the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of EA's sci-fi horror title compare.
Here we go again. Only difference I saw was the 360 was brighter, hard to say if adjustments on the TV, in-game would have made them identical. Otherwise, I saw no differences, then again, I never broke out the magnifying glass.
These comparisons are getting ridiculous. Are they trying to imply that if I have a PS3, but the 360 version of a game looks slightly better, that I am going to buy another console just for the minor visual difference that may or may not be seen on MY television?
To be fair the PS3 version looked better.
Better contrast, better colour. Especially when it (the PS3 screen) cuts in when 'Isaac' is running away.
I barely see a difference. I like the darker PS3 version but that could be the just the contrast on the tv.
the version that looks best depends not on the actual version but on the eyesight of the player and the TV and setup of the user.
HONESTLY: when i play on my xbr5 with all my custom settings, my screen looks WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAy better than what these SO-CALLED journalists put up. then ill turn OFF: theater mode, motion flow, rgb unlimited, and superwhite and a laundry list of other video options OFF....and still end up with a better picture than what is posted by these sites. When will the b1rds#1t from these birds, cease to cover the gaming industry?
Usually, in such video comparisons, we see the 360 version have deeper colors and an overall darker gamma. However, in this case, we clearly see that it's the other way around, for once. This is probably because the testers actually did the right thing and turned on the "Full Range" option on the PS3 settings, and they also seemed to set the 360's black level setting to too low of a setting (yes, the 360 has Range controls as well).
I always purchase multiplatform games for my 360 for one very important reason: the controller.
I hate the PS3's controller, plain and simple.
I have to deal with it when playing PS3 exclusives, but I will not use it if I don't have to.
I dont care what anybody says, i like these comparisons. The games look the same, the PS3 is actually darker, and therefore looks more colorful, but you really cant judge the graphics on that basis, because you dont know how their color settings are or the systems output is. But they look the same.
I think they looked the same. If you want to do a real comparison - compare the console versions vs the PC version. And when you do you will know why I am buying the PC version! : ) Seriously - who cares? Just get it for whatever console you have. And if you have both get it for he one you think has the better controls.
These video comparisons are for two things. 1. It allows multi console owners to decide which version they'd rather pick up based on visuals. Or, if it shows framerate differences, or whatever else these stupid video comparisons show. 2. It's bragging rights for fanboys to say that their console version looks better.. even though half the time you can't tell the difference.
...of what could be when a developer actually puts forth the proper effort so one game on two different systems are mirror identical versions of each other. Looks the same to my untrained eyes. Good job EA.
Thought both looked good lol or that just me
360 version looks better... to 360 fanboys. The PS3 version looks better... to PS3 fanboys. The versions look identical to real gamers, but we didn't bother to watch.
i saw no differences, well, only 1 thing, when Isaac was escaping the 360 version looked brighter. but, if you look at the vid again it's cause of the smoke effects. that was the only thing i saw.
my god, this game is scary as hell!!! gonna have to pick up a copy later. on which system? i'll never tell. lol.
I thought the atmosphere on the ps3 version seemed brighter but everything else looked the same (apart from the extra 3 stars on the x360 version )
yea same here although the ps3 had more space then the 360 did.......get it more space.
Good luck to our resident specialist opticians on N4G who seem to be able to see things others do not. Looking with my eyes i say........................... everyones a winner.
Tv settings would make it identical.
That video was so choppy.
at least on my machine.
Yea. I know, right? They should get payed for that sht. Just like.. analysts. They get payed for BSing. Haha. =) @bouncybullet Yea.. It was choppy on mine, as well.
Maybe the PS3 has a better contrast in the end of the video... Anyway it's pretty the same thanks to the leading on PS3 Leading on PS3 then port the game to 360 is a lot easier and it's a win-win situation for both consoles
hopefully that stays true with MGS4.
Identical, stop imagining things, all you accomplish is to attract flamers.
not very good with sarcasm are yea....
these aren't necessary any more.
They never were... They've pretty much always been used for one thing. And, that would be for fanboys to have bragging rights about how much their console version looks better.
oh good grief, here we go again... Fanboy 1: OMG, t3h button on t3h 360 version looks better! lawlz Fanboy 2: STFU j00 n00b, ps3 version looks better! gtfo [email protected]
The 360 version blew the PS3 version away! In before the flames! j/k Both are dope! This is the new Bioshock! I can't wait to get my hands on it now.
I DEN TI CAL! Edit: Oh, it was a joke, sorry.
its only in 720p because that all the ps3 version does....720p like LBP 720p...i can name 27 games easily that are only in 720p on ps3....including resistance uncharted and soul caliber....full HD gaming my a$$
No it is in 720p because that is all they capture in. If you had any awareness then you know that Gametrailers had to write a very detailed explanation concerning this when they were caught intentionally screwing Sony with their video capture.
You have 2 bubbles for a reason. PS3 has plenty of games that run 1080P - You fail at trolling.
Full Auto 2 = 1920x1080 (4x AA) GT5 Prologue = 1280x1080 NBA 07, NBA 08, NBA 09 = 1920x1080 Ridge Racer 7 = 1920x1080 World Series Of Poker 2008 = 1920x1080 (2xAA) Virtua Tennis 3 (demo) = 1920x1080 (2x AA) Wipeout HD = 1920x1080 1942: Joint Strike = 1920x1080 (2xAA) Blast Factor = 1920x1080 (no AA) Calling All Cars = 1920x1080 (4x AA) Commando 3 = 1920x1080 (2xAA) Echochrome = 1920x1080 (2xAA) Elefunk = 1920x1080 (4xAA) Go Puzzle = 1920x1080 GTHD = 1440x1080 (no AA) - Vehicle selection is rendered at 1920x1080 High Velocity Bowling = 1920x1080 Locoroco Cocoreccho = 1920x1080 (2x AA) Mainichi Issyo = 1440x1080 (4xAA) Pixel Junk Monsters/Racers/Eden = 1920x1080 Rocketmen = 1920x1080 (2xAA) Snakeball = 1280x1080 Stardust HD = 1280x1080 Sudoku = 1920x1080 Super Rub-a-Dub = 1600x1080 Tekken 5 Dark Ressurection (screenshot) = 1920x1080 Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 = 1920x1080 (2xAA) http://forum.beyond3d.com/s...
enjoi, do you have ANY idea what the hell you are talking about?
Only thing about your "a$$", enjoi is the hot air blowing out when you bend over to state "facts".
...*whistles quietly* You have no idea what you're talking about, do you? :/
Most of those games are simple titles or mondane in nature when it comes to prossessing needs.
I hate to say but I agree with POG most of those are simple PSN titles.
True they are mostly PSN titles. but we get full fledged disc games in PSN unlike you guys. Also, just because MS blatantly puts 1080p on the back of each of their games doesn't mean you have any bragging rights to speak about. Upscaled 1080p from 720p is not 1080p. Look at this list of true 1080p 360 titles: Fifa Street 3 NBA Street Home Court Boogie Bunnies Virtual Tennis 3 from: http://forum.beyond3d.com/s...
Yeah but hes right. I have barely seen any 1080p ps3 games, i know there 1080p ps3 games but whenever i go shopping for ps3 games with my mate we always look at both 360 and ps3 games and the ps3 version 80% of the time is only 720p
That's exactly what I'm saying. MS preys on the consumer's ignorance. You don't even know that the 1080p on your 360 game isn't TRUE 1080p. It's all 720 upscaled. That's what this list is about. True 1080p games. There's even less 1080p games on the 360. The PS3 can default upscale to 1080p but Sony doesn't "market" the game as 1080p on the back of the box.
Yeah dumbass the 360 doesn't do 1080p either, it uses an upscaler. You really don't know anything about console hardware do you?
POG says "oh it's only PSN titles that don't require a lot of processing power" If it's so easy, then why doesn't all XBLA games do 1920x1080? Makes you think doesn't it? The only known XBLA game that does 1080 is boogie bunnies. Yeah time to get rid of your PS3 for that game folks! /my name
Waiting for those Eagle Eye 360 fans who notices every tiny pixel difference, but then magically cant tell the difference between Blu-Ray and DVD.
I can tell the differnece between a $30 BR and a $0 BitTorrent, a $2.00 HD Download from Marketplace.
Yeah, i can tell the difference all-right.
@Sarcasm ~ Classic reply! You got a chuckle out of me on that one. Bubbles.
Very astute observation! Bubbles
Hilarious. Great comment.
I thought they were both scary!
the 360 version got this one.. but not by much..
Sure it did! In CRAZYland! Repeat after me: Identical, I-DEN-TI-CAL, identical!
I-DENT-ICAL How did I do?
The PS3 won this one end of story. It had a bit more color to it.
In saying the above, can any of truly trust a video comparison? Everyone of us would prefer to check it out for ourselves and that's just what you'll have to do, to be sure.
That's if you can be bothered.....
Looks good, reckon I'll buy this.
I-I-de den-ti tic-ica ica ical. did i say it right? pls tell me i said it right
I would say very close. looking at around 1.50, the guy running down the corridor looked a little better on the PS3.
Do you play all your games with a magnifying glass to the TV? Pausing every 2 seconds to check the pixels? Or perhaps you're superman, with super vision!?
No. The guy running down the corridor on the PS3 only served to highlight how DARK the PS3 version was, and how much detail is lost because of the inferior volumetric lighting.
That Volumetric lighting is what brough dynamic light (and the general feeling of being better-lit (less dark)) overall on the Xbox 360 version.
You == wrong, but nice try.
I'd really like you to repeat what you said on the beyond3d forum. Let's see if they don't laugh at your *cough* BS *cough*
ummm yeah sure there mate sureeee. pffft not the PS3 version was better compared to the 360 version but that could of been cause of how they set up the T.V's
I just had a heart attack. that game sure has some shock value. How am I going to survive.
I never watch them!!! ;-D
(I don't trust internet sites)
I can see with my own eyes how REAL Looking Next-gen games look like on my PS3...
i.e MGS4, Uncharted, GT5:Prologue, WipeOut:HD, R&C:TOD, LBP, MotorStorm, KillZone 2(the Videos) etc etc... ;-P
Oh, they seem to be all PS3 Exclusives to!!!;)
Looks much better on Ps3
...it looks better on PS3. First thing I noticed was the lighting effects, they look much better on PS3, overall it looks like a good game on both consoles.
i was thinking the exact opposite. no fanboyism i honestly think the 360 version was brighter, had better textures, and had a nice glow off the material when the light hit. if you watch the first part of the video were there on the ship. look at the guy standing up on the right. you can clearly see that the 360 version has a nice solid shine off his back. while the PS3 version looks a bit fuzzy and the lines aren't as defined . PS3 handles the shadows a little better.
