Gametrailers: "Does one console rest in the other's slipstream?"
Let the beatings begin!
They look the same. It is interesting how the PS3 version looks lighter in all of their comparisons yet I suspect that with every game, it will look equally dark when you play it on your own HDTV. These comparisons have lost their edge and are a waste of bandwidth these days.
not sure they even have their PS3 on the proper settings. I'll wait until I see the game running in front of me. What am I saying. I'm not buying this game anyway. GT5 for me.
does it matter anyway? Forza and GT both kill this game.
Now GT just has to put the right settings on the PS3, and you wouldn't even see the lighting difference.
I never see the point of these comparisons. If there are differences in gameplay, fair enough. But if its a case of "that pixel is bigger then that pixel", seriously.......who cares?
Is the frame rates. That's all I worry about. If one is cripplingly slow...then that matters. Other than that, not too much matters.
Um...multiplatform owners care? For $60 you always want to get the best version of a game you can get and thats who and what these comparisons are for. If you (not you specifically) are a single console owner then stop coming to these comparison submissions and complaining since it has nothing to do with you. Its like comparing which TVs are best, which internet service provider is best, what car is best etc etc. You pay for something you want the best possible version you can buy. So if you (not you specifically) own both a 360 and a PS3 these comparison videos may...or may not...help you ultimately choose which version to buy. If they didnt do a Orange Box comparison, I wouldve bought the PS3 version. Glad I didnt though.
lighter? darker? thats the only difference. Pretty good port I think.
Ok i suppose it matters if you own both consoles. This is the first time i've commented in this type of article, because these don't interest me. But i am keen on NFS shift. Its just to me most of the differences that exist are always usually minor, so i don't think it matters that much. I agree with what you said though, if you got both consoles you'd want to buy the best version
I, as a single console owner, have every right and reason to view these vids as a multi console owner. My reason is slightly different. I don't want to pay full price for an significantly inferior version of a multiplat game and I think it goes the same way for a 360 owner. If Modern Warfare for some crazy unprecedented reason is substantially inferior on the PS3 I would not buy the game until the price dropped in a major way. I would see as much via one of these vids.
If you've been paying attention, you'd know that they actually have stated they were running their PS3 on settings that aren't exactly conducive to getting the best picture quality. Furthermore, just because someone is a "professional" doesn't mean they're above making a mistake. The guys at 1up and Gamespot were professionals according to your definition of the word. And they were blatantly biased to the point that a major overhaul occurred. Some sites like Kotaku were so biased that they were black balled. I give credence to sites that continue to justify me doing so but if this gen has taught me anything it's that even the big sites, the professionals, can and do make mistakes that lead to an improper representation of a game and a console's worth.
what they done to 360 version its not that dark on my 360 :P but i see no difference. One the best nfs so far in my opinion.
i swear to god i didn't notice the split screen at the first time i saw it ( at the start of the vid ) the second time i saw the Playstation3 and xbox360 logos then i knew it was a split screen they both look identical just the 360 looks a lil darker
Hardly a difference. The lighting and contrast seems to be slightly darker on the 360. But the PS3 version looks to have better anti-aliasing as seen at 1:34. Overall though, it's a stupid comparison and goes to show that Black Box was terrible working on the PS3. Kudos to Slightly Mad studios for making both versions look and run great.
The only thing I see is, its a gorgeous game, regardless of platform. Surprisingly, tbh. Not a big NFS fan, but this one I will get.
And the war begun... the fanboy war :s
ps3 version looks a lot better than xbox and the poor screenshots haha NAI
They look pretty similiar to me apart from the slight difference in brightness but what happened to the damage on the ps3 version? where is it? maybe they had it turned off?
I don't usually post on comparisons but I do view the stories on N4G and this just shows that the comparisons are a complete waste of time. I saw the comparison the other day where the PS3 was too blurry and you couldn't see the needles on the dials. WOW! They must have fixed that for this reviewers build. The 360, DAMN! It's so dark I can't see what is going on! Now looking at the other comparison from the other day, it's quite a bit different! Maybe... JUST MAYBE the settings are different from the other comparison, MAYBE they are using different inputs, MAYBE they are using a different TV. If the settings make such a difference then who is to say who is right and who is wrong? I gotta say this, when I play a game on my system, it usually looks a lot better than a screenshot or a video shown on the net. Maybe I just have a special version of the console... I can see the point to these articles for multi-console owners but they seem to be so skewed one way or the other they end up being pointless... And I just wasted 15 minutes commenting on something pointless /sigh
Yeah the point is for multi console owners, but u have to be careful of the source it has to be captured over hdmi. Least GT has some decent hardware to do them. Never listen to opinion just watch as much stuff for yourself then decide.
If the Reference level on the 360 is set to "expanded" instead of "standard" it tends to get overly dark and loose some of the detail because of that. I would be curious to see what theirs 360 is set to.
ps3 version looks better and yes damage was turned off
The lack of proper lighting and the blurrier textures really makes it shine.
@soda Watch the zoom in, notice the better reflections? LOL u are in need of a new monitor.
he needs to see a new psychiatrist never mind a new monitor. Get well soon soda.
They look the same, really. The only difference I noticed was that the 360 version was way darker than I would normally expect. I wonder why that happened?
maybe its a poor tv then again u wonder why splinter cell has the best shadows lol yes cause xbox has default darkness
There are so many low resolution textures in both console versions, however there are equally as terrible textures in the PC version.
need for speed in a few week s and will be buying the ps3 version then after that im on the way to get my uncharted 2 paid and be ready when it launches
I prefer the look of the 360 version. But the difference is only slight, you wouldn't be missing out if you bought either versions.
I have never see the 360 screen to dark... i think its something to do with the settings they have it on, other then that not much difference.
i prefer the ps3 version 360 version is to dark its unrealistic it looks like you're constantly driving in a storm if your looking from inside
Maybe it's one of those days where you have dark clouds which means the 360 version is more realistic. ;)
