Eurogamer Portugal published an exclusive video comparing the two versions from Call of Duty: World at War. Enjoy!
Hmmm how much enjoyment can one really get from watching these comparisons. Its gotten stale and i have grown tired of them
I agree, does anyone really care anymore?
Apparently so, so much in fact we'll have it twice http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... :/ But at least this one doesnt have any ads.
Buy the one u want.All this ps3 v 360 every time a new multiplat game is released is getting lame.
Nope, don't care about video comparisons. Whenever I know that graphical beasts of games like KZ2 and Heavy Rain are possible on the PS3, I don't need to see comparisons of 3rd party games whenever those developers clearly aren't utilizing the PS3 to a much higher capacity, they are just scratching the surface. If 3rd party devs. were using the PS3 to the capacity that Guerrilla has then I would care about video comparisons, but since they dont use the PS3 in the way that Sony 1st party devs. do, I could care less about them.
I F-ING CARE! i'm a dual console owner and wanna know which version is best! so there are people out there like me that care!!! the comparison videos are never gonna stop. i'll make them myself if i have to!
who the f.. aprove this? please stop it. I think I have seen like 4 videos of this meaningless cod5 comparison videos..
@ 22 seconds...I only noticed because the video stalled there...but the PS3 version has much sharper cloth texturing on that guys shoulder, closest to the camera... I'm only bringing this up because that is normally an area where the 360 takes an edge...but I would never have even noticed had it not stalled there and started buffering again... either way...its the cod 4 engine...both systems are beasts at running that engine (despite being sub HD, CoD 4 still looks great)...and I guarantee, unless there are frame rate issues with one version, no one can tell them apart when you are actually playing the game...
I understand what you mean but at the same time if you need a video comparison to see the differences what's the point? I only see this needed if at all is when you can see the differences without multiple versions side by side. When you can see the difference without it being side by side you have something other than that I find it leading to bias thinking.
The problem with that theory is that these low quality internet videos actually don't show the full extent of the differences that you will see on a high def TV. I have seen a lot of videos in the past where in the relatively small internet videos you couldn't tell any major difference, but when I later got the game and compared it to a friend's copy of the other console version I found that there were fairly large differences. People said Dark Sector looked the same on both platforms and so I bought it for my PS3, only to later compare it to a friend's Xbox 360 copy and find that the PS3 version did not look as good (fuzzier image quality and more jaggies). People also said that the demo of Mirror's Edge looked the same on both consoles, but when I compared both versions I thought the 360 version looked a lot cleaner and sharper (less aliasing and screen tearing). Those experiences, and many others like them, have taught me that people's judgment regarding multiplatform comparison videos is not reliable. Even when you can see clear differences in a video many people will claim that they see no difference. I can tell you one thing for sure, if you can see a difference in one of these low quality internet videos I can guarantee that you will see much larger differences if you compare both versions on a HDTV. I own both consoles and I paid a lot of money to get both of them (around $900.00), so of course I want to get the best version my money can buy. It's just common sense. I can see why single-console owners might get annoyed with comparison videos because they don't like to see it when their console's version looks somewhat inferior. But it pisses me off to no end that people can't seem to understand why many of us care about these comparisons. Thank god that there are some sources out there that are willing to provide this valuable service to us multi-console owners. Edit: BTW, why am I not surprised that every single person above me that complained about these comparisons is either a PS3 fan or leans that way in their preference?
if you really F---ing care. you should have been playing this on a PC since its pretty pointless to compare a multiplat game on those 2. PC will own them both. from your post you really dont sound mature and makes me think you are just another kid that likes to ignite war between fanboys. if its purely on the console side, there's usually almost no difference to very minor ones which doesnt justify as the definitive version. unless pc doesnt have the game and its only available via the 2 consoles then i might agree a little on comparing but over all its still pretty pointless as i can tell you no multiplat games can ever utilize those console hardware properly since those engine are build to work more generic as thus you can ever gain console specific advantage. and for such game where pc is also another avaliable platform its even more waste of time to do a comparison. PS: Traveler - regarding Mirror's Edge from your comment you pretty much saying that IGN's reviewers are blind. putting the look of the game aside, its a known thing that PS3 controller handle the game better than the xbox controller too. so maybe i should ask you do you buy a game to play or buy a game to watch? althou you claim you own both console but it seems that you cant even get your priority right.
they both look like sh|t to me. i hate the new cod engine and its hideous textures.
Didn't we just see about three or four of these articles posted up over the past week for other sites? Is that what exclusive means these days?
Nice.. so it takes all of that just to match the 360 version.
Another one? Wow. It was more fun watching the comments back when there was an actual difference to be seen in these multi-plats.

Pretty lame game anyways... Ps3 has better clothing textures and the xbox 360 has better ground textures. Take your pick... since we don't see the guy your playing as I'm sure it won't be too hard.
so I know which one I will be picking up
You are on a negative roll today, arent ya...
You realize that you may see people that you play against a bit, but you see the ground the whole time? Oh wait, you are one console owner. Sorry about your luck. enjoy only owning a ps3.
wow...you PS3 fans are really trying hard to get rid of that stigma of having mostly the inferior versions of multiplatform games aren't you? Why deny reality though? That is stupid. If a game looks better on a certain console, it does. Denying it just makes you look like a desperate fanboy trying to protect your beloved console at all costs.
Who'se in denial? For every game that looks (slighty) better on XB, theres another one that looks (slightly) better on PS3. We just dont crow on about it for 400 comments. Most dont even look better or worse, they just look a little different and it comes down to preference. You can say you like red more than you like blue, but you cant say red is a better colour. Its just preference. If you like your version, then enjoy it, and let others do the same.
Another video comparison!! WOOHOO!! NOT! These things are getting REALLY old and tired now.
look at 44 secs at the guys face, there is alot more detail and more sharp in the PS3 version, this is pathetic i agree i just wanna get in before pp
I think they should only publish these comparison if the difference is truly significant without using fanboy goggles, and they could help a gamer pick the best version of the game. otherwise this is lame as hell.
It is worth reporting, and its not the reporters fault that so many of us cannot handle the results like mature gamers. Why censor the news just because a bunch of PS3 fanboys are afraid that yet another comparison will prove that the PS3 is NOT really superior to all other consoles like Sony has told us.
It's lame because it's just promoting another useless flame war. You don't judge something on what it can't do, you judge it on what it can do. Learn what that means please.
and you also can't judge on what a console can't do based on a multi-plat game.
like one of my reply above i totally agree its really pointless. if you really own both console, which version to buy for such game solely lies on who you gonna play with. your psn friends or xbl friends. simple as that. thats how i deal with it. so neither would be definitive. on the worst scenario i probably play it on my pc and drop both console for this. only fanboys will like to compare such lame thing. and jeremy you dont judge what can a console capable off via multiplat games. you have to remember those game engines aint build ground up to give an edge to a specific hardware. you dont build a game engine that work that way for a multiplat game since usually different platform have different architecture. so multiplat games are usually pretty generic in the way their engine work and thus they work for all platforms which almost no graphical difference to very minor ones that doesnt even worth mentioning. unless on one you can see your gun while another you can only see a stick instead of a gun shooting then yeah i would call that difference.
You can try to downplay it all you want, but the differences are often fairly significant. You ask who cares? I care, and I don't give a sh!t if you don't think I should. If you don't care, nobody is forcing you to read or watch these comparisons, just ignore them and go on living in your ignorant bliss. What completely blows me away, though, is the hypocrisy of some PS3 fanboys who act like a HD download is just completely horrible and does not in any way compare to a Bluray, but don't seem to mind when one version of a multiplatform game has blurrier image quality, screen tearing, and jaggies galore. When the truth is, the typical difference between a Bluray movie and a HD download is more minor than the the differences we often see between versions of multiplatform games. I care about the image quality of my movies, that is why I buy Bluray movies for my PS3. I also care about the image quality of my games. The fewer visual imperfections, the less I am distracted and the more I tend to enjoy myself and become immersed in the experience of the movie or game.
Jeremy is right...there are noticeable differences that anybody that is being honest can see very easily. I dont know why people deny the obvious...when the truth is right there staring them in the face.
that really boring.. they make billiong of comparison on every multiplatform game. :S
i have the pc version which looks pretty decent. Still playing the beginning level.
holy crap WHO-CARES!!!!!!!! JUST ENJOY THE GODDAMN GAME i have the PS3 version so i could play with my friends plus much prefere trophies over achievments so didnt get it on my 360 im sure theres people who got it on there 360 instead of the PS3 or who dont have a PS3 or dont have a 360 f*cking hell what is wrong with you people it doesnt matter, people spend more time debating which version of the same game looks better these days than they do playing it im going to play zombie nazis this second kthnxbai
Also getting the PS3 version here as well. Nothing against the 360 version, I just have the PS3 and enjoy playing that with my friends online.
Im sure i counted one extra bullet in the 360 version.
lol ok u deserve a bubble
they look identical, I think whenever a multiplat looks identical on both consoles like this, it is because they dumbed down the 360 version to a level that the PS3 could handle, sucks for 360 gamers.
for us that you're in the gamer zone. Take it to the right please.
sucks that has to be limited to DVD space, due to the last gen tech.
Killzone 2 says "They toned down the visuals to a level the PS3 could handle"
this guy is hopeless... he should stop talking once and for all and go back to open zone. lmao
Killzone 2??? LMAO, We had 3 gorgeous COD games while the whole time KZ2 has been doing nothing but talking. I'm sure if any developer had about 5 years of development time and a mass amount of resources they can easily create a gorgeous game.
Man you are thick. Didnt the dev from Halo Wars say he was working on that game for 4 years? Oh yeah, and Too Human says hi. Regardless of your thoughts on that game, I doubt anyone would call it gorgeous. I'm not going to spout the 10 year dev time as the focus of that game shifted many times, but it was in development for the 360 for probably close to if not more than 4-5 years. (and just for the record, being a Canadian, I was pulling for Silicon Knights) Dev time does not necessarily equal a better game, especially when you are buliding a new engine.
I always see people write about "StOp thIs ps3 Vs. XboX comparison crap!" You guys are starting to get annoying, just as much as those PS3 v. Xbox 360 arguments people make. I know that you guys get upset from your interpretations of these comparison videos that might lead to the PS3 vs. Xbox 360 fight, but think people. These are just videos comparing a game on different systems, its kind of like going to an electronic store comparing T.V. screens to decide which one you want. I personally like these videos because I can decide which version of the game I want to get. Sometimes games look the same on both systems and there isn't a point to these videos, but that is totally up to the individual who is looking at them.
Seriously, videos like these are getting boring now. If a guy has a PS3, he'll buy the PS3 version and same goes with the 360 one. If a guy has both, he'll buy where his friends are at. I guess we have seen enough games and videos of games of both consoles to acknowledge their power, so why waste time on nit-picking small things, whose real reason is only known by the developers?
bubbles for you :)
Well, actually...as a dual-console owner I consider all aspects: graphical performance differences, how many friends on each console have the game, the online service, the controller, achievements/trophies--all of that. I don't know why people try to reduce it down to one thing. Guys, like myself, that have both the PS3 and 360 consider a lot of things when deciding which version of a multiplatform game to get.
but what if you are like me. I own both consoles and have no friends! Woe is meeee! I dunno wut to do! Oh wait...I'm not buying this game any time soon anyway if ever. Still haven't picked up Gears of War 2. I'm behind!
Shut the F*ck up ALI. You aint got no freinds.
Lmfao?!?! oh the irony see, pp, i have friends, you know frieeends, actual, REAL-LIFE friends Unlike you sorry but that guy you met online doesnt count as a friend Lmfao
awww looks like pps mad that it looks better on the PS3
your one to talk pp!
Posting comments in the comparison video news threads makes their degrees go up. When their degrees go up, more people click to see why it's hot and then the site gets more hits. If you want these sites to stop posting comparison videos, stop posting comments in their threads.
then why are you posting? sorry but you cant stop the unstopable fanboy power. :/
Will get R2 and KZ2 before getting this one though...
Look as good as this on both systems, why can't other people?
They're using the Call of Duty 4 engine, it was designed for PS3 and 360, so it's hard to mess up either way.
both look fine. at last we PS3 owners get decent third party games!!! =) from now on i just expect multi-plat games on par with X360 or better not less.
PS3 has graphic advantage in some areas of the video. While XBOX 360 is a little brighter. Either way both copies are winners!
OH I want to see which is better because that's the one I'm getting, PLEASE, if your bestfreinds have a 360 only, you would get that version even if the PS3 is better. I have more friends on PSN, so I'm getting the PS3 version, multiplatform games have minimal differences and I haven't ran into a multiplatform game on which I was like man, I which I had the PS3 or 360 version, that's just stupid people..I don't put all my faith on multiplatforms game like 360 fanboys. PS3 is the better console quality wise and more powerful based on exclusives, it's just got catching up to do on both online features and marketing, but overall I like playing online for free..COD no problems playing online and it's free
WHY GOD WHY, won't you make these videos stop?! All they do is give fanboys a reason to sound a troll battle-cry and wage war. The differences are TYPICALLY so minimal that even if you could eke out the difference on a 55" TV, there's no way you could differentiate on a lower-than-hd res 20fps streaming video. I'm personally more interested in frame rates/jumps and control issues anyways, and these videos do nothing to dispel those concerns.
You may need glasses are you are colored blind, the Xbox 360 version is better just like 99.9999% of every game ported. Say what you want but 10 years form now you ask what console was better, 99.9999% the Xbox will be the answer.
Hard to have an fair opinion with a name like that. You are exactly the fanboy (in your case fangirl) I was talking about. I can say with all confidence that 99.9999% of the statistics in your comment are unfounded, and made up on the spot. You have no idea what the future holds. In the next month some hotshot code monkey might make a breakthrough in multicore programming or raytracing that unleashes unknown potential in the PS3 and leaves the 360 in the dust. Or the PS3 could expose a manufacturing defect that makes the RROD look like a papercut. What about the Wii? Can you deny that it is an explosive phenomenon that worldwide has almost sold more than the 360 and PS3 combined? Take your BS opinions to the open zone, and leave this section over here to people who can at least attempt to be objective.
