See how the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Fallout 3 compare.
they really look the same when the trophy patch hits im getting this
the media just likes to declare superior version too much.
That's exactly what I think and the worst of it is that the users follow them faithfully.
There is no need for a comparison, they are identical. I gotta get this game after LBP and I finish playing the hell out of R2. BTW I didnt read the articles and Im just curious but why was it that the PS3 version got a lower score in reviews? Not that it really matters but just curious. Anways looking at it in HD reall caught my attention, this year is just becoming so expensive.
Actually no they are not identical. Sadly, the PS3 version has zero anti-aliasing while the 360 features at least 2x. I don't know what the heck bethesda was thinking.
The game looks the same, period. If anyone was to nit pick at all it would be that the XBox 360 has SLIGHTLY (as in stop and stare) better textures on some of the environment. The PS3 has SLIGHTLY (as in stop and stare) better texture on NPC clothing. OOH ahhh OOOH wow! NOT. The game from what was shown in this side by side video is freakin identical. Again for anyone to say otherwise is being nothing more than a nit picky snot fanboy. When the game is moving and playing there is no dicernable difference at all. EDIT: This story should be approved just to put an end to the which version looks better. It just puts the topic to bed nicely and we can all go enjoy gaming again.
I doubt the versions are all that much differend, there are some framerate problems in Ps3 version but its bossible that x360 has them too but dunno since havent played. There are some odd differences in the game tough, just look at this http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... However Fallout3 and Oblivion are not games you should buy because of the graphics, the graphics are mostly in area of "good enough" but when comparing it to level of detail in Uncharted or Geow youll know what I mean. The real streght of these games relies in their openness, and variety of ways to deal with sitsuations and maybe real roleplaying where you can actualy play as a person that you want to be, if some npc annoys you, blow his/her head off (if the npc is important to main plot or a child, your in tough luck tough)
If you are referring to the one frame rate issue in the video, if you noticed the PS3 user quickly spun around when getting in the level and the 360 user didn't move at all. Obviously spinning quickly when getting in a level will cause the frame rate to fall it is common sense. For some reason the PS3 user was moving a lot quicker than the 360 user. Hey was also get a lot closer to surfaces. I don't know why during the comparison they had the player moving through different times of the day too. With all things considered they look just about the same, except to fanboy eyes.
Its great im havin loads of fun
From The Washed out Colors To Crappy Texture's And Its also Blindingly Bright on the Xbox By Far The PS3 is the Best Version And it's About Time A True Comparison Video was Made To Show how Bad the 360 Looks
Can't you be UNBIASED FOR ONCE?! THEY LOOK THE SAME. AND YOU KNOW IT! You are both pathetic examples of the human being.
I had almost settled with the fact that the PS3-version was a complete mess, because of all the trash-blogs, even though some on my friendlist bought it, and said it looked fine.. still.. I just ordered it, and should get it tomorrow - I have lost all believe in gaming journalism. Its all about politics now :(
Just got my copy in the post today for the PS3, it looks really impressive and runs well. a few framrate problems here and there but apart from that it's great.
you can never rely on journalists anymore.
got to agree on what your saying,waiting till trophy patch first but the game had issues on all platforms yet the gaming sites pointed out ps3.
The good thing about Fallout is the choices u get to make, in my first trip through the game i decided to saved Megaton but when i play it again (with the trophy patch) ill blow it the hell up and thats just 1 example out of a 100+ decisions u can make throughout the game Its got my vote for Goty
lol get a life dude i see ur name in every article i click
There is no problem with this submission, problem lays in flaming, and (sometimes) lame comments. Don't spam, make your opinion clear and based on facts :) Game looks good, as long as not compared against crysis and such ;) Approved.
The future is blu...
everytime I watch a video on this site and only this site, it has to Buffer constantly. Very irritating. What I have seen from the video, it looks the same on both except maybe a few more jaggies on one. Noticeable really only at the start, when walking up to your dad at a year old.
I thought the 360 version was supposed to be miles ahead? It's exactly the same? Hmm... so that means all the PS3 needs is a patch to fix all those lame issues. Geez, why the hell would patches need to be necessary in the first place. LBP, Fable II, GeoW 2, SOCOM, Fallout 3... not that it's a big deal but, still, developers should at least make sure the game isn't glitchy as hell before they release retail copies...
Well that settles it. It's a fact that the PS3/360 edition is the best looking one, and its a fact that the PS3/360 edition is a bit buggy too. Man, those who bought the PS3/360 edition have an awesome game on their hands.
its the only one that's really any better than the others.
What Kevin means to say is, if you have a very high end PC then it superior. But my buddy has a Pc with 512 ram, 2200 amd with a ATI 9800 and the 360 version to him is superior. If you have a mid to low end PC then console version will be better.
Tarasque, I'm sure if your buddy played it at 1280x720 on that machine it would run pretty decently. no?
and I play at 1680*1050, at high. 60fps solid, aa, and it kills the 360 version.
your buds pc is very much low end.
sorry too late, i already bought the xbox 360 and waiting for the DLC and the game runs perfect.
Its a shame Sony couldnt make a box that can do 30FPS
after all the bashing it got...but other than a few jaggies the game looks awesome...ill be getting it when the trophy patch gets released ... look at the last guy on the video he even moves his arm and looks more expressive on the PS3
I bought the PS3 version and often wondered what the issues these journalists speak of since I have had no issues. The only issue I should make note about is the freiends that pop up online in the right hand corner makes the game pause for about 5 seconds. I just turned the notification off and no issues since.
Well.. I recieved a e-mail that the games was shipped, so tomorrow I will enjoy a maybe inferior version of Fallout 3, but as long its not Splinter Cell: Double Agent ( if any remember ) inferior, its not inferior in my eyes
just keep on playing the inferior version on the flopstation3 like always i flopped!
I bought it on the 360 for 2 reasons: 1) The media said the PS3 version was much worse. Turns out that was not accurate. 2) Downloadable content. Unfortunately, the PS3 version isn't going to get the same download love. I'm still glad i bought the 360 version cuz of reason number 2 above, but it seems like i would have been just as satisfied with PS3 version. Game on!
The media made the PS3 version sound like it was massively inferior. I see, i see that's how it's played.
I want to know what the hell the "games journalists" were looking at. I honestly cannot find a difference. The freezing issue however is annoying.
what the game journalists were looking at. Microsoft advertising dollars disappearing from their employers if they said anything bad about the 360. Do you really think it is anything less? Seriously? That is the only logical conclusion one can come to when reading what the talking heads spew out. Prove me wrong. I have the PS3 and PC version and will goad my neighbor into renting the 360 version so I can see it for myself. From the video though I can pretty much determine that there is nothing different on either platform.
Well.. I did notice that in the scene with the dad, as baby, behind him to the left is a light and vent that is not in the 360 version.. so i'll be happy with my PS3 version supporting advanced light and vent rendering technology..
Darkseider: I agree with your point on advertising money, but I dont think its only Microsoft. Activision got a reviewer fired on gamesport (I think) over Kayne and Lynch because he gave it a bad score, and Activision said that they would stop the advertising, so basically the reviewers will favor the console who´s game they are currently advertising for - but they STILL have to do it in disguise because if the site gets a reputation as biased, then they loose hits, if they loose hits, the brands loose exposure, and the site will loose the advertising and money. The end of the spiral - as I said earlier, its politics. :-/
Almost identical apart from the 360 having slightly fewer aliasing issues.
how you do a game comparison! hmmm, tastes good and should serve to all as a standard for judgment in all future console vs. console viewings.
Exactly the same, and all versions have some bugs, there will be patches out for ps3,360,pc. PC actually has the most issues.
ever since i picked up the game a few days before release, i was saying, based off of my OWN HANDS ON experience with Fallout 3, and on my 40" 720p set to boot, that the game on the PS3 looked great and played great, but many people disagreed. many people would much rather have a kneejerk reaction based off of what we KNOW is the bias gaming media with an agenda, and many people were like "OMFG, i'm sick of 'lazy devs' i'm cancelling my pre-order NAO!!" the game is fantastic, and a lot of fun. me and my fiance are both addicted to the game, and we got rid of our copy of Fable 2, because we just didn't play it anymore once Fallout 3 and Resistance 2 came out (our other addiction; co-op mode in that game is SO GOOD). the media blew this so out of proportion, as did the fanboys. and it's pathetic. at their core, the games are exactly the same. and while there may be differences in visuals (afterall, the RSX is basically an NVidia, and the 360 chip is basically an ATI, so you expect them to render things differently), they are so slight it's not important. i hope everybody can learn a lesson from this. the PS3 is not in the same boat it was in in 2007, when ports were laughably bad, and it was perfectly reasonable for PS3 owners to be outraged by the quality they were being subjected to. but ALL THIS YEAR, multi-plat titles have been consistent in quality, with minor differences in visuals that did NOTHING to detract from the game on either console (ie, Burnout, GTAIV, DMC4, Dead Space, Mirror's Edge, and pretty much every other quality multi-plat released so far). the PS3 has reached parity with the 360 in terms of multi-platform development. once next year hits, and all PS3 games are required to have Trophies (Sony has mandated this to all developers), and as the PSN improves with every update, the only thing that will separate the gaming experience between the 360 and the PS3, will be the exclusives. and we all know who will have the most exclusives, being that third party devs have pretty much gone multi-plat (Microsoft has 7 first and second party studios working on exclusives for the 360. Sony has nearly 30 first and second party studios working on exclusives for the PS3). normally, i would be mature, but i TOLD YOU ALL SO, that Fallout 3 on the PS3 was great, and looked great on my HD set. now you can finally see proof.
Getting this either Friday or tomorrow. I get paid! :D They look the same.
dam, i thought there was something wrong with the way my pc was configured. i see the shuddering on the consoles too. :( this happens with or without vsync. its just worse with vsync enabled.
Got the PC version instead, a 9800 is such an old card must be a few years old by now. You could pick up some more ram for dirt cheap and a decent graphics card for quite cheap as well.
100% the same IMO maybe I missed something or have bad eyes but I can't see a difference. Those articles saying the ps3 version has bad graphics seem to be just bullcrap.
They are not the same. I noticed a thread in beyond3d. A member took pics of both versions. And to my surprise the ps3 wins. Much better shaders and normal mapping. http://www3.telus.net/publi... - 360 http://www3.telus.net/publi... - ps3 http://www3.telus.net/publi... - ps3 http://www3.telus.net/publi... - 360 http://www3.telus.net/publi... - ps3 http://www3.telus.net/publi... - 360 Just shows you, the media will tell you anything.
The PC makes a mockery out of both not only in terms of higher res and uber texture details thats totally missing from both consoles, but blistering performance and load time as well. The PC have this awesome feature call a quick load. At one press of the F9 key your last save game is loaded from two, to less than one second. Thats right, less than one second. Sometimes the game load so freaking fast that it's impossible to perceive if you're standing in the same chunk.
snagged the ps3 version
