Quaz at Beyond3D offers a comparison between the 360 version and PS3, positing that the 360 is 1024x576 2xAA and the PS3 is 1280x720 2xAA.
Either way this game sucks. Keep in mind that all PS3 multi-platform games are superior anyway so this really isn't news.
teh 360 has teh betterz multiplatformz
screw that, I'd rather have the motion blur that the 360 verson has!
all ran at 1080i native on PS3 and lower rez of <720p on X360 any multiplat game could be made to run at 1080p on PS3. the most realistic game ever made --the GOD OF ALL FPS KZ2 runs at 1080i on PS3 so GTA4 should have run at 1080p on PS3 since the game looked like dogshttt
Thats not motion blur, is just low rez. ;)
360 is too bad..
predatorV4G you chat so much crap i will love to know were u get ur info from
360 stills looks better
Uhmm, yeah....sure :rollseyes: I guess some people just don't want to hear it now but any other time when it's the other way around it's okay. But that's okay here is some more proof people don't want to "hear" 360 http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Tom...

I'm playing them on PC 1920x1200 @ 60FPS+
Another Microsoft exec is going to make another public statement; saying gamers don't care about High-Definition. High Definition is so last-gen!!! Microsoft will once again be riding the spinny go-round!!!!
ya man, I, BIG BOSS, agree. why should we fight over who has a better version of a near-flop? The graphics are bad on both. And who ever took these screen shots is an idiot. Look at the second one, that is just a time of day difference in the game. Imagine taking a picture in GTA4 at night and asking someone to compare it to a daytime picture. [email protected]$$ arguments ensue over a bad game with so-so graphics. 1.9= flaimbait, and I say that as a sony-fan.
xb!tches called it an 'uncharted killer' xb!tches now call it a flop "but but but... teh multiplat..." SFTU xb!tch
It really doesn't matter which console you choose to build and port from when the developer doesn't put enough time in it.
Sure! But wasn´t the X360 version developed in the lead? They even went announcing exclusive DLC for it! This article is a little funny IMO! They didn´t put Trophies in the PS3 version but they go for the trouble to optimize the engine to 720p?! o.O
Multiplat games dont matter at all But this should give readers something about the power of ps3 Uncharted looks 2x as good as Tomb Raider or any x360 game Uncharted 2 looks way better than any game out there Uncharted 1 ran at 920p native not just 720p so this means any dev can actually make their game run at 1080p on PS3 since multiplat games dont require that much of ps3's power KZ2 runs at 1080i too so this should tell everyone about ps3's power
yes x360 was the lead platform for this game Prince of persia also run at 720p on ps3 and 600p on x360 same goes to Dead Space and Farcry 2 DMC 4/burnout/alone in the dark /COD4 all ran at higher native rez on PS3
Also factor in the universal developer excuse into the equation, it goes something like this: "The Xbox 360 Will Upscale Everything to 1080p", I believe the PS3 also upscales content but not "natively" meaning it has to be coded in if I recall. This makes developers lazy which is a shame!
You believe a member from a forum that's a sony fan and take his gossip and though it's the bible? First the pics look the same second I've played it on 720p and it looks great on my Xbox 360, so if this were true lets hear it from Eidos themselves and the reason behind it. Fanboys be them Xbox 360 , PS3, or Wii isn't acceptable as the truth behind what they wish were true or make up to bash another. I've said this before and I'll say it again, "NO" article should ever be allowed to be published on here when it's basis is a forum members only. p.s. OK, with that said , the game is great and a hell of alot of fun in my book. Much better than the games you compare it too.
"But this should give readers something about the power of ps3" What, you mean the article or your custom 1080p Sony underwear? Honestly, spend more time on your schoolwork and less on formulating idealistic throes. In this case, good for PS3. It goes to show that developers don't have to be afraid of the 360s upscaler. .. and seriously, healthy competition aside, some of you just act like M$ slapped your mother and sh*t in your oatmeal. Jesus.
@ XGamer This guy has been counting pixels since this generation started. Alliances aside, he knows what he's talking about. When 360 games are rendered better, he makes it known... ...also, I'm not even sure where you are getting where this guy is a fanboy. The forum is Beyond 3D. Doesn't really have anything to do with either system. They count pixels. They let people know the truth. Check out these pages. http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... XBOX 360 - Grand Theft Auto IV = 1280x720 (2xAA) PS3 - Grand Theft Auto IV = 1152x640 (no AA) See, no bias
That list brings alot to light, it seems like the guys at Crystal Dynamics have never gotten 720p on the Xbox 360, same with the COD series on both!!!! I'm surprised to see even MGS 4 isn't native 720p.
Even with fewer pixels it seems the 360 is just as good at rendering the graphics as the ps3. The colors are more vibrant on the 360, multis seem to have the vasoline effect on the ps3. Who cares though, just play the damn game.
Even though this is the guy who pointed out the GTA4 resolutions, you still don't believe him? lol...
Who the hell cares? Stupid POS Tomb Raider. MS stop wasting your money on exclusive DLC for crap games, and start developing some more first party stuff!
whats this doing on the front page again ?....
The 360 version has less jaggies.
This "PS3 fanboy" as you put it was the one to discover that GTA IV's resolution was running lower on the PS3, as well as the crappy resolution that HAZE runs at. What's your excuse now?
who cares? The game is not really that great anyway..
I just picked this up for the holidays and it's really good! If you like tomb Raider you'll like this one. btw people need to stop comparing Tomb Raider to Uncharted, Tomb Raider is a puzzler Uncharted is an action shooter whatever. The only thing they have in common is the treasure hunting. happy holidays!!
I was actually thinking of getting it as sort of a appetizer while waiting for Uncharted 2.
Not on the PS3 or 360 version. To me, they BOTH look like last-gen titles
@strongbad1441- You are insane. When the game first shows you on the boat surrounded by water and then you dive under the sights are pretty stunning. Anything but last gen. The game is like this throughout with amazing environments. Sure TR isn't going for a realistic look it has it's own TR style in the art more so on character design. Personally I think it looks very good. @JohnnyRotten- I totally agree. It's my favorite since TR1/Anniversary.
I play this on my PC and despite not as interesting as Uncharted, it is still a good game! personally I'll give it an 8. seriously, it's not that bad at all!
The game isn't that bad. However, I think it could have been so much more. The story has potential. But the bike level is a joke, nice environments, to minimalistic character models and the camera drives me crazy. Sorry, not even close to UC. But it has its moments and shines in some situations. And about the comparison to UC. Sure, they can be compared. These are the big "treasure hunter" franchises out there. Not much else that I know of.
The PS3 version supposed to be 1080p, aight?
hows that bubble?
Who gives a flying fuk? Stop nitpicking the freaking games fanboys! edit: And stop approving so much crap too...
OH NOEZ!!!! Come on people, it doesn't matter. GTA IV was a lower rez on PS3 and no one cared, same thing here. If you love Tomb Raider and have both consoles, you might want to get the "superior" version but for everyone else...
TR looks much better than GTA4 though But uncharted 1 easily tops any game on X360 576p is TR's rez on x360
games be less resolution but with AA in them, looks a hell of a lot better than the jaggie games on the ps3 with the lack of any AA. Every game ive ever played on the ps3 has a problem with no AA, mainly multiformats but still saw lots of it in LBP and Home.GTA was the worst, terrible jaggies, also fifa 09 and my god look at pro evo, go to take a corner and the corner flag looks like a ladder its so jaggie. Nah lower res with aa is much better looking.
Well, you'll be happy to know this game has 2x AA on both consoles as well as higher resolution on PS3. Funny that the 360 has a choice between AA or higher resolutions.
Where are all the people who keep talking about how GTA4 had a lower resolution on the ps3 than on the 360?
I blame lazy devs for the 360 version :P
this game isn't that good ne ways besides im sure all of you guys who are gonna talk smack about this didn't even buy the game....so whyu care about minor stuff like this
wait a sec!?
"yes, X360 1024x576 2xAA and PS3 1280x720 2xAA (with quincunx)" ROFL this means Tomb raider would have looked 2x as good or as good as Uncharted 1 had it been PS3 exclusive
This is not surprising as the Sh1tbox 3-Fix-Me is an inferior console with inferior multiplats and isnt capable of high caliber graphics that only the PS3 can produce. Giant Enemy Crab/Lobster: bu bu but teh sales. Me: Too bad sh1thead, Tomb Raider sold more on the PS3. Giant Enemy Crab/Lobster: bu bu but we get exclusive DLC. Me: Too bad sh1thead, the game is crap no DLC is going to make it better.
I simply dont get it why do americans buy that xbox. all its games bombed this year except fable2 and gears 2 all its jrpgs are flops and craps . all its games are crap like too human
This is news? wow most of the games nowadays run ar sub HD resolutions and if 720P is relatively widespread, 1080P the True HD is a very rare native resolution for modern console games.
It's just as valid as any post saying a PS3 game runs at a lower resolution than the 360 counterpart. People don't care how good the game is -- they only care about numbers and technical specs.
Sure people at Beyond3D, talk about resolutions, and frame buffers, and it's all they seem to care about, but News is something new right? while the sub HD resolution is nothing new ever since Halo 3 and COD4.
cuz recently i mean all games including Far cry 2 and Dead space ran at 1080i on ps3 and lower rez 720p on x360 Uncharted 1 ran at 920p on PS3 and it looks almost 2x as good as Gears 2 so with time and optimization any multiplat game could run at 1080p on PS3 GTA4 should run at 2160p on PS3 . same goes to Fallout 3
Actually if beyond3d is to be trusted Far Cry 2 runs at 1274x692 that is to say 692P on PS3 and at 1280x696P on X360. Uncharted runs at 720P not 920 and yes I do think it looks a lot better than Gears and a little bit better than some of the Gears 2 graphics. I don't think PS3 or X360 could run all of the games at 1080P no matter how optimized they will be. And GTA at higher resolutions can barely work on good PCs let alone PS3/X360.
Avto, I agree with you. Not much is 1920x1080 on consoles now a days. Most native 1080 games use less shader power or fewer textures. However, KZ2 runs 1080 lines (but scales horizontally, like UC and some others). Wipeout HD runs 1080 lines with a dynamic line length (anything between 1400 to 1920, AFAIK). I think 1080 has been hardly tapped into yet. There is some space left to exploit 1080 a bit more in the future I think (I am guessing GoW3 could be that milestone). KZ2 is a first for GG and I can imagine, building on what they know now, and possibly getting inspired by others (WipeoutHD?) a 1280+ x 1080 res is possible at some point. I don't think full 1920x1080 at a sustained frame 30 or 60fps will ever be possible, though, with the fidelity of, say Uncharted. But, you never know. I have nothing against a positive surprise.
I find it amusing that this isn't news, yet when it's a 360 game running at a higher resolution, it's "power of da Cell" and "PS3 is difficult to program for". And you're right, this isn't news, JUST AS IT WASN'T NEWS WHEN IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND!
yeah, that's pretty much it. whenever a 360 game runs at 720p and the ps3 version runs at like 640p, these threads spawn like 5 pages of mindless stupidity. whenever it's the other way around, these articles are pretty much quiet. i wonder why? =D
I think I know why. Everybody (especially the Sony Faithful) knows that the PS3 is supposed to blow the 360 out of the water. So when an article pops up that says the 360 is superior, Everybody (mostly the Sony Faithful) comes flooding in with comment after comment like, "The developers were too lazy to properly program for the PS3." or "PS3 should have been the lead platform. When it's the other way around, Everybody (especially the Sony Faithful)knows all is as it should be and should have always been this way. This comment is intended strictly for entertainment purposes and does not reflect the views of N4G.
I could also say it is the "360 faithful" coming here and trolling and bashing PS3 and its owners, which is actually true. But the truth is that it's a mix of both. Funny how you always try to come out as neutral when you're clearly not. I don't care if you own all consoles or not, I own all too, but clearly you still have a bias. Reserve your low quality comments for -------------->
@ baum I definitely prefer my 360 when it comes to gaming and don't see that changing anytime soon. As for the "Faithful" on both sides, I am definitely biased against the Sony "Faithful" as I feel they are full of more crap than the 360 "Faithful". Always crying about the media being biased, lazy developers, PS3 blowing the 360 out of the water and my personal favorite which is crying about exclusives going multiplatform, link provided below. It may happen on both sides but I see this type of thing much more from the Sony "Faithful". http://n4g.com/up/13764/Blo... Allow me to share one last thing. I was in Best Buy on Christmas Eve doing some last minute gift shopping. I was on the PS3 aisle (go figure since I'm obviously biased against the PS3) when I was approached by an older gentleman looking for advice on which PS3 to get for his 21 year old son. I recommended the PS3 Uncharted bundle. He then mentioned that he was going to buy a 360 Elite but was not sure about it because his nephew's 360 just died on him for the 2nd time. I told him that all electronics fail but some fail more than others. I also mentioned that the 360's failure rate was reported to be around 33% and that the PS3's was about 1% to 2%, was not sure exactly but I knew it was low. I told him based on those numbers it was a no brainer to buy him a PS3. I honestly could not recommend a 360 to somebody not knowing if MS has fixed the hardware issues or not. So much for my bias against the PS3. Edit: As for reserving my low quality comments for the Open Zone. I'll take mine there when you take yours there.
If you feel that PS3 fans are "the worse", then you're evidently 360 biased, as you just admitted. All fanboys are terrible. I can't stand some 360 fanboys but I'd be lying to myself if I thought Sony fanboys were better. I bet you that if roles were reversed it would be the exact same situation. Kudos for you honesty
@ukilnme Really if you think the media isnt biased you must have ur head up something dark and smelly all you need for proof is gears of war 2 getting 10 out of 10 from any site what so ever and im not just taking a dig out of the game but how on this green and blue earth can you give a game 10 out of 10 when its online mode is broken beyond repair if thats not biased i guess the definition in the dictionary is wrong.Anyone that says the media is not biased are idiots plain and simple.
@ baum I know it's sad that I have a bias against a lot of Sony fanboys. It's one of my many faults. @ MRMagoo123 I know the media can be biased but it just cracks me up how much people here on N4G complain about bias against the PS3 and that MS controls the media. Oh well, we all believe what we must to get through the day. MGS4 and LBP also received many 10 out of 10s. Are those reviewers biased? Can you tell me those games are perfect or are they perfect for you? What's the big deal if a reviewer's experience with a game is so enjoyable that they decided to give it a 10 despite the flaws? There is no way to say your experience would be the same as taste in games are completely subjective. A 10 for them may be a 6.5 for you.
I have in all honesty yet to find a fault in LBP or MGS i have yet to find a single glitch in MGS in all the hours i have put into it.But my point was that these sites must have been a bit more than biased to not notice the obvious flaws in Gears of war 2, its not like you rarely stumble apon them there apparent every time you play and arent just a fluke when you see them.I can forgive sites for not seeing a glitch or bug every now and again when its a rare thing in the game to happen but when there like they are in gears of war 2 you cant miss them.Ide like anyone to play gears 10 times online and see if its not 10 times youll see a massive bug or glitch because i can bet you it will be 10 out of 10.No one in there right mind can say the media in general wasnt out to get sony the day they released the ps3 even before it came out and the funny thing is even though there are sites now that see that the negatives where mainly false or had been fixed pretty fast some sites still cant let go and are trying everyday to make the ps3 seem worse than it is.Even game shops are biased i have gone in to my local eb games and have heard the staff telling ppl not to buy the ps3 and get a 360 which i think is a basic disregard to work ethics.In a perfect world there would be no biased media but sony sites are gonna steer towards sony and 360 sites to the 360 but the ones inbetween should be neutral but more times than not arent.sorry for the million words.
Lmfao, so true Thom, so true.
It's not that different to be noticed really is it... At the end of the day this is a good Tomb Raider game, with a big nod back to it's original heritage with some great Puzzles. Fans of the original game will like this as I did, regardless of a few tell tale pixels between resolutions...
its more then just resolution. PS3 has better textures and 360 version is missing self shadows in parts check pic 5 in the link.
Tomb Raider wasn't that great anyway. Although I'd have to say Lara was super hot in that game.
Even though i also own a PS3. There are 4 reasons for this: NORMALLY they look and play better They are often cheaper to buy The onine component is always better on LIVE and all my friends always own the 360 version as most don't have a PS3 yet. However, now i'm really pissed. I've also found bug issues with the 360 version(not sure if its just 360 or PS3/PC also) and the save files corrupt) The only saving grace is the DLC announced EXCLUSIVELY for 360! TWO new packs. Looks like with tomb raider, you can't win either these days. While we're talking about tomb raider, you know what would be rerally cool for the next game? 2 Player co-op! co-operative puzzels! Lara needs a companion, a fellow adventuer. A man or woman, someone you can your friend can play as together. And keep the DLC flowing!
