Here is Gamespots review of Splinter Cell Double Agent for the PS3 which for some reason Gamespot decided to give it a lower score than the 360 version.
Before PS3 FANBOYS start attacking my comment section I am just posting a review and I did not make this review so if you have any hate or need to cry go to Gamespots website and wine to them.
I suggest this for a description
" Splinter Cell makes a solid debut on the PlayStation 3 by delivering more of its signature stealth action gameplay along with its unique multiplayer modes.
The Good: Stealth action gameplay remains tense and exciting; rich multiplayer suite improves on the spies-versus-mercenaries gameplay; campaign's trust system makes you think your actions through.
The Bad: Missing some of the graphical features seen in the Xbox 360 version; some frame rate issues and long load times."
That has all the flamebait you need DK
The title clearly says "PS3" yet all these Xbots flood in here talking about US flaming.
Go back to waiting for Halo and stop flaming.
Its not sonys fault that the developers cant do the same game twice right. Maybe Ubisoft needs to get some outside help to developing ps3 game4s like thoes people making killzone.
that makes no sense...ubi is hands down one of my favorite companies, when they do stuff, they do it right and when they have to do it again, they do it better and still include all the great stuff from before
graw and graw 2 perfect example
rainbow 6 another good one
i only wish ea could be as good.
my point is, this is in no way a fault of ubi, they do a bang up job every time, don't even start putting blame on them.
Dark, if I were you I wouldn't lose sleep over that. Unless the news you post are not praising the PS3, Sony fanboys will start the flame. Just post the news as you get them. They will never be happy unless it's what they want to hear.
@Sony fanboys, if it makes you feel better. The developers who made this game suck and made this game suck at purpose. Heck, gamespot sucks to for making this review and are bias Microsoft fanboys. [excuse my sarcasm].
ubisoft sucks, they are MS fanboys, they did it deliberatly, they needed more time, they are lazy programmers, you just wait till MGS and kill zone are out, gears sucks.
that should save the fanboys some posts.
Not the PS3s fault?, you made beer come though my nose.lol
There is more technology in one SIXAXIS controller than there is throughout your entire console.
Get over it...
Splinter Cell's why too advanced!.
its been proven plenty of time the ps3 has alot of potential its the developers fault if teamn ninja can run a game at 1080p at 60fps and selfshading its not the Ps3's fault its ubisofts
You guys weren't MS fanboys yourselfs,anyways,Bethesda is king of multiplatformers!
i would have said this even if the title were the other way around
"Splinter Cell Gets 8.5 For PS3 While 360 Gets 8.0".
I am sure most of the readers, including both sides of fanboys agreed on the following two statements:
1. PS3 and Xbox360 are about equally strong but they have very different architectures (this is GENERAL statement, ps3 processor stronger, xbox GPU stronger, whatever, u know the old arguments, but stay with me though, don't flame yet).
2. Splincter's Cell did NOT push the boundaries of either machine. (as compare say Gears of wars/Bioshock or Hevenly Sword/RachetClank footage we have see so far (I guess the most update to date stuff i can use to cmpare on the 360), which ever game you are comparing to side by side)
Now if those above two points are true, in essence, both machine should be able to Re-create the Splincter Cell's world in equality in theory, if NOT better on the PS3 due to its extra development time (you can agrue that programmers are not as familia with Cell processor).
Now if you believe 1 and 2 to be true, why argue about this score? Is it the problem with PS3 hardware in way that it is inadequate to output the same qaulity?
think Oblivion, many ppl think the PS3 version is probably the 'better' version, those guys really did try to max out as far as they can at the amount of time they had.
I think if you have stay through my reasoning thus far and put down all your flame shields and think through everything quite calmly you will see that the only difference here that can affect this above-average game that pushed no boundaries are due to the difference in programming and architecture, and not in the difference in the power of the machine.
So this is a lazy port, like many other. There is no need for PS3 players to defend this any further, and of course, Xbox players are not gona grow more meat for winning the argument either right?
So play nice, and good night guys..(i have a feeling after i press submit i will get flame up the ass, but I have an opinion just like the rest of you; so, flame shield is up; embrace!!)
Very good comment, here comes the..err...bubblegun!
I didn't know Gamestop did reviews.
which for some reason Gamestop decided to give it a lower score than the 360 version. After the comparison pics...I wonder why welcome to the no-shyt train.
More excuses Sony fanboys?
For how long? And you have one multiplatform game, Oblivion, to prove your case? A game that came a full year after the 360 version? If the 360 version had that extra time and launched simultanously I bet ya the 360 version would look better then the PS3 version.
All the other games look best on the 360. And you're still making excuses.
Yeah it's the game producers, they don't know how to program. They don't know the Cell. It's the game reviewer, they don't know how to review. They're paid by MS.
Oh wait, it's the weather! It's because my girlfriend has her period! It's because Barbie Ken doesn't wear his pink skirt and did his Sony dance today! It's because...
THIS IS WAITING
I have no idea how much longer Sony fanboys can't wait without switching over to the 360. If they don't, they're just braindead and swallow anything even having N64 graphics on their brand new PS if you ask me, these kind of posts on articles prove it.
To the posts replying mine
So all of you made clear I speak the truth. When you start calling names, and start posting posts that say nothing at all it's clear. You can't give facts, you can't give a normal reaction on what is just happening right now to ya.
Sony sold you a BluRay player that can do some games on top. But the lesser versions. I know it's sad to admit that.
Plus, probably you are scared for Halo or something like that? The game is nice, but it's not the nr. 1 I am waiting for. Forza 2, Bioshock, Mass Effect, GTA4, Assassins Creed, Stranglehold I think I'll be playing those even more often
We're not going to touch your Xbroke360. We've made our choice, live with it.
You have fun being Micro$oft's puppet.
Enjoy your "Shiny" next gen graphics. They are soo realistic. I never knew light reflected off of people's skin...
why should I buy a console that bricks 4 times in a mounth and I have to pay $1200 (if not more) to get a full console. and all that for what?? Halo?? god damn no....
Mart you dont play your 360 because your always on here tying to justify your purchase of the 360. YOu come across as a 12 year old kid wjo is jealous of the PS3 because muumy and daddy wont buy you one. Grow up you cUnt, also Halo 3 This is Waiting.
why cant i vote for lame for this very lame boy ? i ask myself how much money he gets from ms.
Themart,I feel sorry for you,please stop crying and stop posting lies.
Have you read the previews of Heavenly swords or seen the videos of Lairs to see what the PS3 is capable of ?Or OBLIVION,MOTORSTROM,....Poor Mike,you feel so unsecure,you should seek psychiatric help because it's getting worse everyday.
well if your post did anything TheMart you got all the 1 bubble losers to use up thier only post... so umm congrats.
Yea Marty u!
The game looks crappy for the ps3,don`t buy it so next time they will learn how to better port games.
an cancel them. Think next time.
The rule(s) seem to be:
1. If its developed first on the 360 and ported to the PS3, chances are the PS3 version will be inferior.
2. If its developed first on the PS3 and ported to the 360, chances are the 360 version will be inferior.
3. Most current gen titles will be coded on the 360 and ported to the PS3.
Basically, you want the best version for multi-platform games then buy the Xbox 360. If you hanging out for the handful of exclusives on a given platform then buy that platform. This continuous bashing of the other persons system is pointless and its not going to make anyone jump from one system to the other. For pure gaming Xbox provides a better solution due to its current price point. For those who disagree, fine, I don't give a sh*t as you're not going to convince me of otherwise just like my point has not done for you.
you are such a tool
this is coming from the guy that has both a ps3 and x360.
you make me want to return my ps3
bladestar your a tool
MGS > Splinter Cell
What the? I never said that!
Ofcourse "MGS > Splinter Cell" Hell I said it many times, I'm getting a PS3 the day MGS comes out. As of now there there aren't any games that pushes me to pay $600(Yes no more $500 sku) for the PS3. Notice: I said, "pushes me" or that offers me anything that the 360 is not already offering me. Ofcourse for some of you Motorstorm is a system seller or resistance but as a 360 owners there are plenty of games in those 2 genre for the 360 at this moment.
MGS is one of my favorite games, heck I would rather have MGS than Halo (I am not a halo fan), hopefully Halo 3 will make me get in to it. Didn't buy a 360 because of halo, it was pretty much because of COD2 which was a launched title + Multiplayer(xbox live). By the way I don't even own Splinter Cell. You may think I am a M$ fanboy because I don't agree 100% on what Sony fanboys think and because I honesly like the 360 (so far), but I am not. The problem is that unlike many of you I buy a console for todays games not tomorrows. If tomorrow a game that offers me an experience that I can't find on the 360 I already own I would buy the PS3 as a default. It will not hurt me having both consoles. Right now there are 2 games on the PS3 that kick @$$ (resistance and motorstorm), but every @$$ is different; none of those games apeal me. What do you want me to do, buy the console and buy the games anyways!? Wouldn't that make me a Sony Fanboy?
Also, if you already own a PS3 don't buy a 360 just to play this game(SC), eventhough the 360 is better it's not $399 better. People are forgetting that 8.0 (B) is not bad for a game.
So GameStop reviews games nowadays? The professionalism of this website continues to amaze me.
Splinter cell sucks the big one, on all consoles and pc. Total and utter suckage.
As usual, we have the ignorant comparing a port of a game(optimized on one system) to another(not optimized). Developers have had xbox 360 much longer than ps3 and know how to achieve the full potential of that system. It will be at least another year or two before we see the sheer power of Ps3.
However, there are developers who still know enough to produce great games like Virtual Fighter, Resistance and Motorstorm. As they gain more experience with Ps3, Resistance 2, Motorstorm 2 will simply rock all.
Killzone2 won't look as good as the trailer but Killzone3 will, once the system is mastered.
So stop being TWITS by comparing ports unless the developers have achieved the full potential with BOTH machines, not just one. If the same game gets a different score then they obviously haven't.
Fools can only be fools. You know who you are....
What's that old saying?
"Never argue with idiots, they'll only bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience."
I think that covers pretty much the majority of this sites userbase.
This goes for all fanboys... M$, $ony, Nintendo, Sega etc etc... you're all just as bad!
Grow the f*ck up and stop acting like whiney little boys!
It's no wonder gen pop think gamers are loosers....
do many people care about this game??
who will remember this game after 2-3 years ?
i still remeber MGS2 after 5 years..
"There is more technology in one SIXAXIS controller than there is throughout your entire console."
I'll bear that in mind the next time I'm playing Oblivion, and an unseen ranged attack scares the crap out of me when the rumble kicks in.
LMAO nuff said!
All this makes me want to vomit.
Isn't there someway that when submitting a story we can add a template comment section, so that I don't read through the first 30 people saying exactly the same thing every time!!
On a side note - Splinter Cell has always rocked - mainly due to the amount of effort put into the sound engineering - simply amazing sound FX. This one was good too - but let's face it, old fish now.
you guys keep talking about ONCE developers get use to developing with the cell the games will blow away xbox360 games, thats crazy an you guys know it. the Cell can not make the graphics better than what the RSX can produce, an we all know the xbox gpu is better than the Ps3 gpu, its been stated many times.now once developers figure out how to get ALL 3 identical cores of the 360 to run the best, I still dont think the PS3 is gonna out do it!! I agree developers needs time to figure out the CELL but at the same time they also need to get use to programing for a triple core processor. an dont forget the xbox mas a bigger memory pool because its not split!!
Splinter Cell is one of the best franchise around. Consistenly getting high reviews. The ps3 is just a mess to develop for. I see why Ubisoft decided to bring the next Splinter Cell to the 360. Oh well...sucks to be a ps3 owner.
They have no reason to lie. The developers has a very long time to make a better product but they could not. So what if you do not like the bad reviews get the console that get the most good reviews or just get them both.
We all know why this crap is happening it is just the fan boys who post BS like the developers are lazy. Do you not understand that the developers make the games for ((YOU)). If I read this thread and broke my neck to give you Sony fans a decent game I would be livid.
don`t base your opinion`s off of a review of a port that came out a year ago(about)
it`s old news.
Robert22388, you seem to be blinded by the fact that all or most 360's brake or something. I haven't seen any statistics on this, and well it doesn't really matter, but my 360 hasnt had one problem. But since you mentioned that i could mention that the PS2 had so many problems. But still none the less it was a good console. As for calling someone a Microsoft puppet, your as much of a puppet for sony as they are for Microsoft. Quit being such a hypocrite.
AS for this game, its not the end of the world.
But sony fanboys, you kind of created this backlash yourself. So quit your whining and take responsibility for your own words. But that goes for any other fanboys as well.
Oh and uh Robert22388, graphics aren't everything. How is it possible that goldeneye 64, older FF games, you name it, are fun if the graphics suck now?
I'm soooo tired of people saying
"IT'S NOT THE PS3 FAULTS, ITS THE DEVELOPERS"
Why can't just be OK fine it looks better on X360
I know alot of X360 users on this website act the same way when a game looks better on PS3 they say things like
"THEY HAD THIS MUCH AMOUNT OF TIME TO MAKE THE GAME BETTER"
All these damn people cannot just except things why is it so hard to believe that some games will look better on PS3 and some games look better on X360????
The game looks better on the 360, that's it. No-one cares why, a consumer see's a better looking game and buys that version.
They don't care why it doesn't look better on one console, they just want the best.
Lied about Madden being better on the XBox 360 version when they just changed the day time on the PS3 Madden version so this goes to show any website can do that to multiplatform games and even switch names for the PS3 title and the XBox 360 title and putting them on Splinter Cell. and make people think that the Splinter Cell version of the XBox 360 is better when its not and making the Splinter Cell version of the PS3 not better.
You are wrong here (the Madden comparison that is)....the particular pictures used may have been at different times of day in that review, but I have both versions of Madden and I can testify from 1st hand experience that the PS3 version looks "flat" and lacks texture and details and shadows that ARE in the 360 version, in fact its really not all that close overall, the 360 version is simply prettier....that is just as plain as the nose on my face when viewing the two versions in an A-B comparison.
The fact that the PS3 version is slightly better playing (OK, to Madden fans, you know that the freaking game is poorly designed from the beginning so being a slightly better piece of crap is still being a piece of crap...lol) and the PS3 has some additional gameplay tweaks that did not make the XB360 version just shows that the game mechanics were improved by EA in the 5 months between the 360 release and the PS3 release, but the graphics are3 essentially tapped out on the port from 360 to PS3.
Old news though....WOW, you mean the 360 version looks BETTER than the PS3 version??? IF the question is on a specific port (especially one made for the 360), then the answer is YES.
The biggest difference I can see when playing games on the two systems is this - the PS3 works better for giving the illusion of larger, more expansive physical space in the game environments (think of some of the levels of Resistance for example or look closely at the backgrounds of the GT-HD demo - PS3 games just "feel" bigger is all I can say) and the 360 really excels at the more up-close, visceral action type scenes (think pretty much anything in Gears or some of the scenes and levels in Rainbow Six - 360 games seem to be more about smaller, more intense areas and less about spectacle). Of course, this could change with some of the upcoming games....Mass Effect does not seem to be a "small, intimate" title by any means and MGS4 would be a stretch to say that is anything but a combination of the huge landscapes and intimate close-ups of espionage games and action.
In the end the games just need developers to play to these strengths of each system when making the games, much more than a generalized cross-over game that doesn't really fit.
The fact that so many people seem so emotionally vested in who is "winning" is going to make a fascinating doctoral thesis for someone looking to get a PhD in Pyschology...
It's like a soap opera in here.
seriously, its like daytime TV.. ok, splinter cell is better on 360..I can agree, now I'll go back to the LAIR gameplay demos.
i am really tired of having to put you weak minded wanna be tech specialist in place you keep saying that the ps3 and 180 are equal are you really still taking that methanphetamine please say no to drugs you have completely forgotten how the ps3 was built and you ps3 fake fans just side with these 180 fans like the systems really are equall thats a joke the ps3s design is to make cutscene graphics in game and it is infinitely possible on the sony ps3 you see you say that the specs of the two machines are equal dum dum dum dum first of all there is a supercomputer inside of the ps3 i dont even see any pcs comming close to the ps3 for years thats why phil said that no one will max out the ps3 and let me fill you in on another thing when RSX and Cell are simultaneously working together any match that you saw with these two systems specs will overly dissapear you are right back in e3 05 when sony said that ps3 is 2x the power of the 180 that was a very understatement keep in mind that ps3 is already doing future technology that pcs arent even doing just on the cell like Ray Tracing and even folding home and now that ps3 have the utilization of the EDGE TOOLS i really dont see the 180s graphics being equall with the ps3 very much longer you already dont have anything compared to motorstorm, F1, Lair, Metal Gear, Definately KILLZONE 2, oh and have you seen the screenshots of Final Fantasy 13 it looks better than the e3 06 trailers and this was actually in realtime on ps3s hardware as good as all of these games will look this will still only be the tip of the ps3s power and besides have your little fun talkin trash about these first games that are hand-me-downs your rejoicing will be short lived this e3 especially an ps3 fans guarantee you will see much less 180 fans afterwards guarantee let me show you yet even more reasons that ps3 will go into unseen teritory with its graphics I have already gone over how the ps3s true power makes 180 and anything else look like super mario but let me give you the last piece you see heres how i know sony built this machine for movie level graphics and above ok here goes:
1. RSX (a highly underestimated piece of hardware that many idiots thank that 180s garbage chip is more powerful than just because of ram but im curious if thats so true i would highly doubt they would make such a weak chip to be able to cooperate with the power of a supercomputer thats like the part in Dragon Ball Z when goku was fighting buu and had to choose to fuse with if he would have chosen Hercule you see goku was a super saiyan 3 and couldnt use a person that had a powerlevel under 200 they would be incompatible there is something secret about the RSX that isnt on paper and trust me it will over last 10 years they even said the hardware some kind of way grows as it ages thats just for the cell and the RSX not the bootleg 180 hardware or even pcs so next time you make a comment about the RSX think about the games that are on the ps3 in the first 5 months of its life cycle like motorstorm and formula 1 and even resistance that cannot be done on the 180 im drueling to see what is to come for this monster down the line and even for the rest of 2007. (thank you)
2. CELL ( i hear you say that the 180s chip is more optimized for gaming and that some kinda way you came up with a bogus idea like what is it called zenos was more powerful than cell a you mustve really been on that crystal meth and extacy when you came up with that who is paying you and the people who originaly come up with these hopes and dreams of yours they are quite funny saying the 180 is more powerful or can produce more powerful graphics than the ps3 is like saying united states is bigger than russia i dont see the 180s graphic chip or cpu being used in medical work and for ray tracing it originaly required a cluster of highly powered computers to produce the resources needed to do medical research and the new tech ray tracing but thanks to the ps3 that has been eliminated oh and pc people you think your big bad pcs that have very high LOOKING specs have really surpassed the ps3 WRONG WRONG SO WRONG just because they may cost more doesnt ever mean more power and besides why try to judge something that you didnt build if your information is so right then you are saying your even smarter than the japanese that built the machine along with IBM and NVIDIA i gat news for ya you aint not close americans have never been smarter than the japanese for instance they come in our own American schools and outperform us and in there own countries and wherever else they go they easily outsmarted the americans in pearl harbor what more can i say for one i can say that how do you expect an american hardware maker to come up with smarter stronger hardware, what they gonna do use money resources aint gonna help some people even say that the ps3 hardware is old WRONG WRONG WRONG WRonG even if the hardware was built close to 2 years ago the japanese technology is far beyond our own tell me what american has built a supercomputer on a chip i will answer it for you no one there cities even look far more advanced than ours and they are an older part of the world than us we would have an excuse if the indians were still on top and in charge but no excuses ps3 is technology of the future, the cell still has 15 years of life in it just for the current ps3 yes dissagree all you want but it is true it is the true next gen.
3. Blue Ray ( now the biggest mistake to the idiot mind but to a genious like sony this time around is going to lead to 4d real time graphics ill explain:
- cell a supercomputer (supercomputers are the machines behind movies and cg films and produce the closest things to real life graphic rendering this is a giant part in the ps3 reaching the 4d era let me tell you the truth when killzone 2 surpassed the trailer the system is still just getting started they are litteraly tickling the ps3s heart at this point and i have proof in e3 05 the killzone 2 footage was shown and yes it wasnt real time but it was to ps3 spec it was a representation of what a game would look like if the right money and time and minds were put into the ps3 guerilla games will be the first to put money time and minds into the ps3 with 120 developers and 21 million dollars with a movie making machine you must have movie making money to make movie level graphics and please dont try and say that the 180 can do the same because it is maxed out glitches of ware did that and they spent over 40 million dollars total on that Bill Gates even said glitches of ware is what the 180 is built for meaning its all the hardware was built to withstand this is why sony called the 360 a 180 because since thats the best the machine can come up with then it really is 180 please it would be in your best interest to stop comparing the 180 with ps3 and start comparing it to the wii and even pc now killzone was being rendered to a ps3s incomplete spec neither the cell nor the rsx were complete and blue ray was being finallized and was only using 80% ps3 output and it is documented i even have recently heard that someone has seen the latest build of killzone 2 and definately looks better than the trailer sony will wipe unbelievers out shortly oh and did i mention that the ps3s finalized hardware came out stronger than anticipated not only that but ps3s hardware is getting stronger because ps3s folding home numbers have ascended ps3 has no limit no this as far as graphics go ps3 is the roof and over the roof understand.
-RSX ( a highly underated piece of hardware on the ps3 that will soon bless you by killing all of your unbelief like i said there is a secret in side the rsx that makes it the most powerful GPU its like in yu-gi-oh slither the sky dragon the card appears farely week but with each card drawn becomes more powerful many of you believe the ram makes the 180s GPU more powerful WRONG WRONG WRONG WronG dont you realize things are becoming smaller but more powerful like say the supercomputers use to be huge so huge they were never mass produced and sold on the market and were super expensive but, now there is a supercomputer on a small chip known as a CELL just my consumption but never the less this RSX will overcome your claims a whole lot.(wait and see)
-Blue Ray ( this is what many people see as stupid and unneeded but it is very needed more so than you know its main purpose is not movies but much more of the bleeding edge graphics that rest inside the sole of the ps3 the intention of sony with the new playstation this time around was to eliminate the need of cutscenes and make them availible while playing or make the gameplay indistinguishable with the cutscenes this could only be done with the help of the blue ray think of it why is every ps3 game on a blue ray disk its not the high definition i assure you that soon ps3 will have games that will look so good it wont need HD but blue ray + RSX + Cell = 4d sometime down the road it will happen talk trash all you will but when a developer steps up and is willing to make a say 60 million dollar game on the ps3 you will see why ps3 is beyond next gen and beyond 3d.
In the end you will see sony's sacrifice pay of they are riding their industry on this machine it will not fail.
And i know even after this TRUTH WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH document their will still be haters and fake tech specialist that will try to sway many that the 180 or anything else is more powerful than the ps3 well you can believe them or believe the truth ill just give you knowlege dont believe paid spokesman for dicsofts weakbox 180
thanks for your time
WAY too long...i didn't even read it keep it short or don't post.
You're THE most full of ship Sonyfan I've seen yet.
You lost all creditability by calling the 360 a 180!
all you said was I love sony and hate the 360....blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah ...
Fanboy or Fanboi is a term used to describe an individual (usually male, though the feminine version fangirl may be used for females) who is utterly devoted to a single fannish subject, or to a single point of view within that subject, often to the point where it is considered an obsession. Fanboys remain loyal to their particular obsession, disregarding any factors that differ from their point of view. Fanboys are also stereotypically aggressive and hateful towards the opposing brand or competition of their obsession regardless of its merits or achievements. STOP BEING FANBOYS JUST PLAY THE GAMES AND ENJOY THEM IF YOU CAN"T AFFORD BOTH DON"T JUST TURN ON THE OTHER
A CENTER TO CURE FANBOYS, COMING SOON
First and foremost, the lack of periods, and Colons and Semi-Colons hurt my brain. Tried to read it but a big long sentence.
