The demo makes it painfully obvious by ending with the words "Converted by Sega."
I don't get it? is this suppose to be damage control? It's not that Sega did a piss poor job on the PS3 version I'm sure both teams worked together on some level. I think the team that did the 360 version simply didn't hold back the 360 version to match the PS3 version as most devs do now, so that they can claim they have a handle on the PS3's hardware. PS3 versions of games are always missing textures & objects, run like crap with lower resolution. This time the devs didn't have Sony breathing down their neck forcing the quality of the game so PS3 can run it while looking decent.
Not all devs can be skilled like Naughty Dog. So you can expect all devs to pull the same performance out of a platform. I mean if your gonna sit here and tell me that Halo 3 has the best gfx on 360... right.. There is a reason why there was only one Einstein. I'm not sure what the point of the article is.. Anywayz, the demo was amazing on the ps3. I dunt see any reason not to get it on the ps3. Unless... you're a blind fanboy and need a reason to justify your purchase by claiming 'mutliplat superiority'.. which is sad in it self.
You can't be serious... These graphics are hardly any good. There is nothing holding anything back. Until I see a single 360 game look as good if not better than a PS3 exclusive such as Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2, then it's complete BS that the PS3 is holding back the 360. Ps3 ports aren't always sh!t compared to the 360 versions. Nearly all games are identical now. No, don't give me that Lens of Truth or Digital Foundry BS. When it takes complex technical equipment or still images to find the differences between the two versions then there is nothing superior about one or the other. The only major differences I can notice while playing a game is the screen tearing. The PS3 may have its share of screen tearing but so does the 360. You already made yourself look like a complete fool by posting a link to a video of Bad Company 2 and claiming that the PS3 wasn't holding back the 360 this time. The first Bad Company game was identical on both systems. Why should this be any different? Sega did a horrible job on this port. There is no denying that. Devil May Cry 4 looked and ran better on the PS3 than this.
Whats wrong "I did not murder him" Why dis, really duh, POG etc. All those accounts finally banned? :)
Kindly do us all a favor and shut the f*ck up. Seriously, do it now. While the demo did have some issues, it wasn't mind blowingly bad. I see that 360 fanboys would rather brag about multiplatform games than actually ask for new IPs!
So the ps3 can run the same code as 360? The ps3 has dev kits just as good as 360's? The PS3 is not hard to develop for? The PS3 has the same architecture as 360? This game looks better than Uncharted 2 which only took 2 years to make? hmmmm...
I'm getting the xbox360 version anyways. I can't wait to play a Devil Mcry Type of game after so long.
I KNOW! Man its been so long since i played such a fun game DMC4 was a blast. Dont get me wrong, Ninja Gaiden 2/Sigma 2 were great games, but doesnt compare to DMC4 action :) Bring on bayo! (just for the record, will be picking up ps3 version ^^ )
i just finish playing the demo last night. Now idk what this demo has done to me but it took me a full hr just to complete it. In fact, this just may have been the greatest demo i have ever played. This game is what DMC4 was supposed to be. in fact it is so good i am gettin the CE edition if one exist. I HAVE NEVER EVER EVER BOUGHT THE CE EDITION TO A GAME I was so caught up in what was happening in the game i almost cried. This is the epitmoe of a Video Game, its pure action, sexy, over the top, and pretty. This game right here has restored the gamer inside of me and i cannot effing wait til it drops. Sega, i am not worthy
@1.2 haha. Well I'm glad people do appreciate it. Coz its gonna be the best action game out this year :) (Better luck next time assassin's creed D: )
it's odd how the wheel of fate turns for both gamers. you got loyal xbox fans who have always appealed to Ninja gaiden and it's way of style, and then you have loyal sony fans who have always appealed to DMC4 and it's fashion sense. but the question is IS either one willing to give it all up to go back to what they had before this odd switch.
when I heard that this was a port, but after seeing videos of the 360 & PS3 version in action, I barely saw any difference. As a matter of fact, they look almost identical when in action so I guess sega is doing a better Job than I expected porting it to the PS3. Now I might re-consider buying it.
you need to try the demo out yourself to see how "good" of a job SEGA did
AKNAA. He's right. DL the demo from the JP PSN store and prepare to NOT buy the game again. SEGA really butchered it. Pics cant show you that horrid frame rate and dont get me started on the textures.
To be honest I only tried the demo from the Japanese PS Store. I don't care which version looks better. The PS3 version looked fine to me. Sh!t, the way she sways her hips as she walks won me over as a big fan of high heels. I played the demo through and I already prefer it over Devil May Cry. If 360 fans enjoy it, then great. I'll be getting the PS3 version simply because I like the controller better. Disagree all you like, but I've been a PS gamer since 1996. I know where my interests lie.
After playing the ps3 demo, it looks like it rushed. I mean the CGI looked like FFVIII graphics, it was choppy when the camera turned. For a game that is supposed to be better than DMC4, I'm disappointed..but I may be jumping the gun. It's good cool combat, cool combos and cool bosses, but for a game that came a year of DMC4 I would expect more.
I tried the demo on the Jp Store yesterday and it was well made and fun there was no problem with it
did you try the demo , lol ? Either you're joking or you don't know how to compare things
skv007 Same here man same here, i could care less which one looks better cause in the end they are the same freaking game! Besides ill be importing this game mainly cause the North American version doesnt come out till next year if i am not mistaken.
I cant believe some of you guys are actually looking forward to this game? I mean cmon, I can name 20 games coming out next year that Bayonetta doesn't even hold a candle to.
Do you even own a PS3? If you have both, get the one you want, but there are just too many people saying which version they're getting to believe that they have both systems. And I'm noting a lot of post in other stories are from the same people saying there's no difference between NG2 and NGS2. I mean the hypocrisy levels around here have gotten ridiculous.
lol if NGS2 n NG2 are the same. Then GeOW 1 n 2 are the same. -.- lol N4G has the biggest clowns around :)
I've got both consoles, and I'm getting neither version. Theres to many other good games about to hit to waste time/money on this.
Well i dont plan on getting this on release date either. Too many games coming out and not too much time to play. For now Demons Souls is gonna keep me busy till I'm satisfied with it. Then i'll move to uncharted.. then Rachet.. rawr too many games o-O Too little time.. stupid college
Yeah I'm Gamefly-ing it. I didn't notice the OMG WTF HORRIBLE AGHAHGAH framerates, but the gameplay was ok enough to at least give it a rent.
I have one system (PS3) and after seeing the hack job Sega did, I just won't be getting the game. Not going to support shoddy ports like this.
i co-sign what he said,not encouraging nor supporting this dilemma.
The frame rate looks crippled and those textures are piss poor and disgusting. I deleted that crap demo within 5 minutes of playing it. Buying this will only encourage devs to pull this shoddy PS3 port crap on the regular. Did sega even try? LOL
get it second hand =) but if they fix it i will be more than happy to get it on day 1
It's not the port. Both versions look pretty bad. They PLAY AMAZINGLY though!
The graphics weren't anything to brag about but I liked the gameplay very much. I may get this at a discounted price sometime.
Lol. Platinum Games was probably not happy with the port and wanted to make it clear that Sega made it to wash their hands of it. Shame that Platinum Games is still linked with the quality of the title due to their oversight of the project. You can't pretend you did nothing wrong. Hell, Platinum Games should be ashamed since they didn't step in to try to fix the PS3 version when they saw its framerate issues. I hope the title bombs in Japan (360 sales are gonna be pretty low in Japan regardless of quality) to teach Sega and Platinum Games a little something about quality.
I hope it bombs altogether in Japan to wake bout P* + Sega up
Actually, people doesn't know how to set gamma, contrast and lighting on TV/monitors. Because if you set up your TV well you won't see a lot of difference. 360 version is superior but both of the demo are not the latest builds. Anyway the difference is not enough to prevent people from buying the game since the game is so relentless that you don't have the time to notice a subpar texture. And PS3 version is clearly heavily UNoptimized. I don't know how much Sega will pull out, but this is clearly not the latest build.
Maybe, maybe not. It could be at least two months old (was shown back in August). However, the game is coming out in Japan this month, so unless they pull their heads out of their ass, this may be the quality of the title. Framerate is the number one issue. Not differences in textures of some walls (I actually don't think people give a rat's ass about that).
Gamma, contrast, lighting has NOTHING to do with texture mapping and frame rates. I mean have you played this crap? I have. SEGA SUCKS AT MULTI PLAT CODE. Period. Sonic is their flagship franchise and they cant even get that $#it to run on the tre. So how in the hell are they gonna makes someone elses' code shine? That "converted by SEGA" disclaimer is P Games way of saying- WE DIDNT DO IT! LOL Latest build or not, If its in SEGA hands, Bayonetta for PS3 is royally phuct! and that it is Sirs.
Actually I don't know how SEGA ports games since this gen the only Sega product I bought has been Valkyria Chronicles. The only thing I can say is that today if you make a multiplat game with many differences, you're just lame, you're a sub par develeper, and people should laugh at you. They should have waited some months even to release the game in Japan. I think PS3 will sell really more than 360 version even if it's worse. (consider that many will import the game for PS3, since 360 is region locked) Then I don't know how much the game will sell on the 360 in the rest of the world, in January/February when the average gamer will buy Mass Effect 2.
Lool . he demo was fine ..sure there were times when the frame rate dropped but it wasn't during battles .. In fact i only noticed a drop -when the flowers bloomed ... that's it . Clearly it's not the last bluid ..and sega already have time to pull this off correctly ... they better not give me a sonic unleashed -like conversion ( awful ) but it seems that's won't be the case .. Strangely this demo isn't configured the right way . The camera speed is on low setting ( why ? ) same as numerous graphical tweaks ( again why ? ) Once you set them right .. the game is way more enjoyable. Also ( good thing ) the loading times are slim to none .
and i got this feeling Bayonetta will disappoint too. Then again,i'll still try the demo before passing my final judgement. But really, Sega/Plat* screwed up majorly this time. This fall and Q1 2010 is so packed with exclusives and big-name multiplats like DragonAge,AC2,NGS2,etc... that most people will be perfectly fine if they skipped this game, and it really seems that it will turn out that way.
It's just plain fun!
They might as well put "We suck at porting games".
This was happening to multi-plat games early on. When a game was made for 360 hardware and then ported to the PS3's hardware, the game was compromised. I played both and to the naked untrained eyes you could hardly tell the difference. But to those like myself, there is some slight differences but nothing to be so over analytical about.
The game is stupid GAY..opionion..lol
Anyway, the low amount of comments here just highlights how much "average gamer" care about this game and this will reflect on the sales. I also want to point out that DMC4 has sold less than 3 millions of copies in 2 years, and it's a well known series. Bayonetta really risks to flop and it's a real shame. Developing it with blindedly focused on 360 won't help at all since a lot of PS3 owners won't buy it. Devs have not understood yet that PS3 owners are more nitpicky than 360 users. The 360 users buy a game even if it's not top notch and has flaws, the average PS3 user instead is a ball breaker that nitpicks everything since he's used to a certain quality standard, so if the game doesn't match the 360 version, he won't buy it. Devs are losing a lot of money because they're not smart and have not understood how the market flows.
This game really wasn't on my radar anyway. Between Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, God of War 1&2 pack, and God of War 3 next year I'll have more than enough of this type of gameplay to satisfy me.
I saw photos that made the PS3 version look like crap, then i went i dl the demo in 360 and PS3. There were differences but not enough to warrant the ridiculous bashing. But now i have no 360 (sold it) and if the PS3 version sux then i wont have this game, no way i will support poor efforts by lazy developers, specially when Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, etc are redefining the PS3 as a whole new gaming generation
I'm a huge fan of story driven actioners. I have played all Ninja Gaiden's (NES included!)...I have pre-ordered and paid in full Darksiders, Dante's Inferno, GoW Collection & Gow3. These are the games I like most - some adventuring with my action! And yes i have Bayonetta on my radar - I will be getting it day 1. My concern is all this talk about 360 being far superior due to Sega bad porting to date. I loaded up the PS3 JP demo...immediately I noticed nothing! It looks great, jaggies are very minimal, textures are very decent....not great like Uncharted 2...but what other games are? The framerate - I noticed very, very minimal screen tearing. It was almost non-existent. I tried to notice what "everyone" is talking about. Playing NGS2 the screen tearing is some of the worst I've ever played - and the game is still amazing! (for the record 360 version I played had it too....though it was during heavy action. Ps3's seems connected to vertical camera movement by the user. Very strange...but in no way affecting gameplay.) So I'm confused or blind. LOL But I like the PS3 version. The screens I looked at comparing PS3 to 360 shows that the 360 version has better fixed lighting. Which is easily corrected in the options menu I'm sure. Or your TV...though I doubt that would be necessary. And actually the difference is largely subjective...i like my lighting harsher while my buddy loves the soft look. Anyways, I'll be getting the PS3 version. I like trophy hunting. Game looks great and plays great to me.
Anyone who buys this is a disgrace to the poor, homeless, diseased and utterly starving children of crack addicts and morons. I'd rather use my money for toilet paper or give it to Bill Gates.
The real sad thing is that all this negativity is poisoning the PS3 version of the game. Even if Sega manages to fix it, reviewers will likely rate it lower regardless.
Im defiantly getting this one on 360
Its like: If you don't like this game, don't blame us point your finger to Sega
