A split-screen comparison of F.E.A.R. on the XBox 360 and PlayStation 3
If this video is truly genuine, I have a really, really hard time understanding all that hyped-up non-sense that the game was poorly ported to the PS3. With the exception of some brightness/contrast differences, the games are damn-near identical. At least from what I can tell in this video. Once extremely pumped for this game, all the bad wrap about the PS3 version actually discouraged me from wanting to picking it up...Looks like I'm gonna have to reconsider my decision and add it to my library after all. Serves me right for not relying on my own judgement instead of others'; I should know better.
torchy is a saint. They don't seem to be struggling that much...once they get the hang of it multiplatform games should be very comparable.
The PS3 version has better Anti-aliasing but a choppier framerate (which is probably being caused by the higher AA quality). While the 360 version has a less rough spots (framerate). @GaMr: Damn GaMr, that's the best a$$ yet
I find the whole argument about the graphic capabilities of both systems interesting, but yet a little misguided. The war on graphics is not really about the x360 and the ps3 it should be about nVidia and ATI. Last gen the Ps2 had a graphics card that was made by Sony. To compare how Sony did against nVidia and the xbox was a good argument, but now both have graphics card made by third parties. I have used both boards in my PC along the way. I have found (at least I.M.O.) ATI cards are better. The only flaw of ATI cards is the drivers. Since no drivers in consoles its no surprise to me the x360 is better at graphics. Finally, wasn't the ps3 supposed to support dual monitors in HD. If it can't do one well how could it do two. I have both systems and I actually play PS3 more than x360. I just think people should understand what I feel the real graphics argument should be which is nVidia vs. ATI and not x360 vs. PS3.
Well again. Before all the fanboys attack it and start thier ramblings about...PS3 has limitations and Xbox360 has super intelligent embbedded GPU and why do I need a PS3 and Xbox360 wins again etc. etc.... Let me be the first to say it. No thier is not 2 hundred dollars worth of difference here. No their is no reason to re purchase this on PS3 unless you have never played. Stop judgin the PS3 on ports. You will not see a $200 difference through a ported game anytime soon. If comparisons like this one are going to be your determining factor on wether you should throw down on a PS3 or not. Well let me save you 600 dollars. Based of these and a few other ports. Thier is no reason on Gods Green earth to buy a PS3 if you have a 360. But if you wanna talk exclusives. Thats a whole different Story all together. " I know I just took the wind out of atleast 4 regulars that come to mind".
best avatars on N4G
dam gamr, its hard to concentrate with that avator in my face...LOL
you are already a Fanboy with the news you post, posting more of your SDF propaganda will only makes this "self esteem-war" worse. edit: then again without you and Deepbrown the Mart & co are nothing. Sr you complement The Mart existence completely. Without you this universe would be so boring.
I have this booty fetish and your avatar is always distracting at work. hahahah By the way, was your first avatar on N4G.com an image of a big booty chick having sex with a guy? the view was from the back of course.
Gamr is a fanboy... Of is avatar like the rest of us becoming bigtime fans of that keyra pic or whoever it is hehe. Thats a heck of eye catching avatar lol
He's right. Exclusives are probably going to be the best measure of a system's true capabilities. Look at Gears of War, for example. Great gameplay, and a visual treat that is easily on of the best looking games ever, for any system or PC. That said, I think the best is yet to come for the 360, and for the PS3. We'll see it when games like Halo 3, Alan Wake, and BioShock hit the 360. We'll also see what the PS3 is capable of when FFXIII, Heavenly Sword, and Gran Turismo 5 are released. I watched the video. Small (but noticeable) differences between the two, mostly in terms of color/lighting. Negligible, to be honest. Just enjoy the game.
avitar, mooving. its late but i appreciate that $hi+. oh yeah ports are always gunna be ports as a ps3 owner im not concerned with these things for now. Whoopi for the dvd muncher
horrible video, the whole game video was pretty much too dark to bother watching
...It looks great to me. If you prefer, you can view larger version: Click the source link and to the right of the video box, you'll have an option to view or download the higher-res versions (in mov or wmv formats). I would have added the notice to the story body, but didn't see the higher-resolution links till now (after the story became approved.)
I don't use ports to come to the conclusion PS3 is not as capable as Sony wpuld have you believe, i think this is a repeat of last generation when it come to hardware claims. Xbox1 was powerful and proved it from day one.
But that's just me. =/ Not interested in this game at all after that video.
XBOX 360 looks better to me...
PS3 and 360 games look identical... What is this, the 100th time? Oh, but these are just ports. And PS3 just needs more time. And developers just don't know how to utilize PS3 yet. And Ken Kutaragi keeps a magical set of keys to unlock the true potential of Cell, but he's waiting for the Blue Fairy to tell him when... [edit: Sorry to be so flamey, but c'mon, the evidence is becoming a bit overwhelming at this point]
mulitplaform game will probaly always look the same..since many devopers keep on sayin they want their games to be identical on each system...but the exclusive games is different story..Lair blow away any games on the 360 right now..the cell is capable of doin amazing things once they take advantage of it..this is only the begining of what the cell can do and the rsx..
you speak of evidence that is absolutely nonexistent. Neither the 360 nor the PS3 has come even close to their peaks. It doesn't matter one bit where either is at right now because they will both be in much better places a year or more from now. Which will be better then, only time will tell.
360 doesnt look that bad, ps3 is somewhat brighter and clearer..
The game looked great on both systems. Although the 360 version showed slightly better detail. (perhaps because being darker, it added more contrast to certain areas.) If you look at the scene where the guards are being killed and look at the Black leather Chair that has fallen over you should be able to see what I mean. Notice how in the dark scene the 360 users needed to use his flashlight, but in the PS3 version in some cases the person didn't use the flashlight. I wonder which way the developers actually intended it to be. But, overall no one is getting ripped off, the game looks good on bother systems. After seeing this video I may need to go and buy a copy of this one, looks pretty creepy.
nothin is different ..i thought it would be a bad port but it doesnt seem like it at all in the video..i guess ill get for my ps3..im jus lookin forward to all the ps3 exclusive games..because all of it goin to be takin advantage of cell and rsx. 360 always hold down the ps3 power..thats why i hate multiplatform games..
you say lair blows away all 360 games. Hows that when it's not even done yet? The video I have seen of the game Lair don't impress me. This is what i wrote about the game. This game has some pretty cool ideas but that is about all. How much longer till this game comes out? Because it needs allot of work from this and other videos I have seen. I have seen: Lot's of pop in scenery and jaggies. When the dragon lands notice all of the men not only look the same but move the same and at the same time. The Dragon control on the ground sure looks jerky. The fire effects look horrible as do the particle effects. Look at the smoke it looks like something rendered from the gamecube. Backgrounds look pretty bland also. It does look like some of the action sequences will be fun but get old quick. I expected allot more from such a powerful and expensive machine. Should have been a game console first.
Maybe the developers should port the games the other way around. Make the PS3 version first then port to the 360. Especially since (as you put it) the more powerful version would be the PS3 version. It's easier to take away than it is to add. Hmmm.. I wonder why they are not doing it that way. It will be nice to see a PS3 game get ported to the 360 so we can compare them the other way around.
if you read one of the dev interviews with the developer of Lair they he said the entire structure of the PS3 benefits creating games for both platforms if the game is designed for PS3 first, search for the interview it has it somewhere(maybe one of the vids)
all 360 games look darker? Or is it all PS3 games look brighter? Thats the only difference I can see between the two versions.
The Ps3 version is on par with the 360 version from the reviews they make it sound horrible... It obviously is not, nor does it even look like a bad port. This is another way reviewers are costing game sales. I would have got this had I known it looked and ran like it does. Thanks for the video going to go pick it up... Way to exaggerate...
The chair looks flat with a greyish green color for the PS3 version but as the camera pans the chair transforms into a black leather looking chair on the xbox version. It is at the 1:13 mark of the video. Sorry PS3 fans
Reviewers tend to be a bit bias towards the 360 don't know why, tehcellownu... I played gears and if you have played through all the game there's no way you will say lair looks better even though the ps3 is the better system...
And I really only have one conclusion to draw from them...these systems really are very close in power. Bottom line neither system has any "superior" edge that I have seen todate. They both put out some great games...and some not so great. Really it all falls on the devs shoulders to make or break these games. Honestly both versions looked great. I played the 360 version and it ran very nicely so I dont know what to say other than if you have only one of the systems get this game on the cheap for 360 and wait a litte for the PS3 price of the game to fall given its a game that is a few years old. OK...one thing I have noticed. Almost all the comparisons I have seen show the 360 versions of games being darker than the PS3 versions. Now in some cases this is good, but in some its not so good. Oh well...again...its a wash. lets all just enjoy the good games.
this gameis from 2005, both systems suck for having it on their systems in the first place. As for the whole 360 Vs PS3 debate, I promise you, you will never see a 200 dollar difference, its a freaking trade up, the PS3 has only 64 Mbs of free ram to play with while the 360 has 512. (No the PS3 has 256 but most of that is used by the Graphics card, and the actual system) They both have DirectX 9 Graphics cards, and MS went for raw horse power with 3 processors while PS3 went for flowing calculations.
The old $200 difference everyone is looking for, is the fking Blu-Ray drive. Why is it so difficult to understand this?
