Gottig10 of E-mpire Forums noticed something peculiar when they looked at the graphics comparison Gamespot.com posted of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of popular title Madden '07. Apparently the photos shown did not match the words printed above the photos, and this is what the member had to say:
"gamespot did there camparison of the ps3, and the other system games, they [tried] to state the the other system graphics of madden was better than the ps3, because of the stadium shadows that appear when you play. I played madden last night and i noticed the the ps3 version did have showdos and infact they where deeper and sharper than the other system version. The setting that puts shadows out, is when your playing in [the] 4:15 mode for the time of day.
so when GS did the comparison they purposely put the 360 version on the 4:15 time of day mode and didn't for the ps3, there for making the shadows appear on the the 360 and not the ps3 version. I emailed them last night, telling them how bias they are and everything,and look what they did."

Also view the photo for a quick and direct comparison that Gamespot threw together after the Playstation 3 launch, one which included many other titles. Whether this was done on purpose, as some believe, or just an honest screwup has yet to be determined.
