Where you buy it for the console where you have your friends at. The single player will be pretty good but in the end, you buy these kinds of games for multiplayer and nothing makes multiplayer better than with friends.

BeaArthur3059d ago

Couldn't have said it better myself. I always by multiplayer games based on which friends are getting it on which console. Unless of course one version is severely inferior to the other.


UNCHARTED 2 in the graphics department with their vistas. Thats NOT what I see in these vistas. The game at least looks better than Modern Warfare 2. Also the difference in ligthning is because how each console handles it. I really doubt this game really push the PS3 as hard as Uncharted tough...Anyway I have it pre ordered..


D4RkNIKON3059d ago (Edited 3059d ago )

It is a multiplatform game, the differences are purely graphical and they are going to be just like every other multiplat game.. It will either look identical on both systems or it will look slightly better on one console (PS3 or 360). The graphic differences in multiplatform games are so small that you HAVE to do screen shot comparisons side by side at full res to even notice a difference. That is what is so funny about this. Fanboys on both sides try to argue as if it makes a single difference. The game will play the same on both consoles and every one will enjoy it equally.

D4RkNIKON3059d ago

Oh I am sorry, this game will be so much better on one platform than the other. What was I thinking!?!

superrey193059d ago

They never said BFBC2 was going to look better than Uncharted 2. They simply said they wanted reach their level graphically but that ultimately, you cant really compare the two because of the huge difference in map size and destructibility.

StanLee3059d ago

Is it me or is there something seriously wrong with these screens? Neither seem to represent the actual game.

IaMs123059d ago

Yes ive been playing the 360 demo lately and those screenshots seem really dark. Also DICE have stated that when it launches it will look even better then the Demo. Probably not much but hey better then nothing, either way it looks good

A Cupcake for Gabe3059d ago

It looks exactly the same on both. The point of this game isn't to cause a fanboy war, it's to end that god-awful POS Modern Warfare 2.

pangitkqb3059d ago

But these images are encouraging for sure. I'm really not concerned about which of the 360 or PS3 is visually better, simply because if graphics were my major concern I would Buy on PC (max settings on highest resolution ALWAYS looks best).

So really, where are the most friends going to be and where are the tightest controls will determine all.

"it is a multiplatform game, the differences are purely graphical and they are going to be just like every other multiplat game.. It will either look identical on both systems or it will look slightly better on one console (PS3 or 360)."

Yes, but you get to beat owners of the other console over the head with it! WOW FUN!!!/sarc

PoSTedUP3059d ago

if these screens are true the ps3 version is a mess. am i the only one that cares? i paid $500 for my ps3 and $65 for a game, i want the best. this is the reason why people boycott s***. it is not that i am not a true gamer, i am a true consumer that pays good money for my s***. this has been going on for so long now and i may miss out on a good game because of my beliefs about being equal, i dont feel like i am being treated equal here.

that is if these screen are true... this is my way of venting ok.

D4RkNIKON3059d ago

Seriously? Those screens look better than MW2 and people bought that game like mad. They don't even look bad, I don't know what you are smoking.


"sigh" yeah, i knew from the start the sequel was going to shine on 360. it all started from the first game with it having better textures and framerate, so you can't help to not see the concept of all that porting over in the sequel.

for ps3 gamers id stick with mw2 as ps3's version looks wayyyyy closer to 360's version than this game. :)

Maddens Raiders3059d ago

look right and certainly don't look like the beta I was playing on my BraviaXBR6. meh doesn't matter to me what these people say a/w

day one.

GreenRingOfLife3059d ago

Darn the 360 wins, I have the PS3 demo tho but now I wish I had the 360 one

SilentNegotiator3059d ago

Both console versions are too jagged and have awful screen tearing issues.

jack_burt0n3059d ago

a comparison uses rgb limted shots GTFO

Hanif-8763059d ago

The Xbox360 has higher contrast than the PS3 version. The only thing DICE has to tweak/correct is to put the in-game contrast on the PS3 version to 8 or 75% to match the Xbox360 counterpart "please note that the game doesn't say 8/75% its just simply the contrast bar that you bump up in the options menu" :-)

PoSTedUP3059d ago

im not comparing this to MWF2 and im smokin every developer that can't make two games look the same on both consoles once i see them. >: \

Saaking3059d ago (Edited 3059d ago )

cool. I haven't decided what version I'll get yet. I'll have to wait and see.

badz1493058d ago

because I only have a PS3 and this game is looking way better than the 1st based on the demo. but I might play this on my pc. I think my HD4850 still got some extra juice to push this game to 1080p. or is it?

ThanatosDMC3058d ago

Maybe it's the destructible environments that is making the game act like this... there's screen tearing on the PS3 version, btw. Hope they fix it.

WildArmed3058d ago

but but if MY console version has 3 more pixels then.. then I'll have more fun and and and the gameplay will become better.. and the story will become better!
You know!?
Coz the 3 more pixels allow for extra content and special ending that the console YOU have can't do!

vhero3058d ago

PS3 looks better and they look the same yet when 360 looks better you fanboys are quick to say so *tut* *tut*.

Either way it's going to be a great game.

Pennywise3059d ago

^This matters more to people playing the game rather than whose rocks look better.

hoops3059d ago

Adjust the lighting and contrast and its the same

commodore643059d ago

... speaking of detail, what happened to the fence in the ps3 version?

Is that to do with the lighting?

Motion3059d ago (Edited 3059d ago )

No, it probably has to do with destructible environments. Come on now, you're smarter than that!

Chaos Striker3059d ago (Edited 3059d ago )

nevermind, Motion beat me to the punch.

thewhoopimen3059d ago (Edited 3059d ago )

It's not a lighting contrast difference hoops. Look at this shot in broad daylight:

There are two stacks of pipes on the ground . The piping stack on the right shows the same detail of light between ps3 and 360 versions. 360 is only a shade darker.

On the otherhand, looking at the shadows cast by the left stack of pipes... the blacks are crushed in the 360. The difference between light and dark should be similar if they were using the same lighting model.

This suggests they are using two different types of lighting. Please do not construe this as a console endorsement. Dice might just be experimenting.

Pennywise3059d ago

Commodore - REALLY? A fence? REALLY?

bjornbear3059d ago

been playing for 2 hours, and the fences look great ;)

commodore643058d ago (Edited 3058d ago )

Yes, you guys are likely right.
It probably is to do with destructible environments.

I was initially thinking it might have had something to do with that myself, however, it has happened before on ps3 that textures and detail, as well as objects, have been intentionally left out of the ps3 multiplats.

This is no secret.
A precedent has been set on ps3 in this regard numerous times.

So yeah, it wouldn't have been the first time on ps3, right?
If it turns out it is in fact due to destructible environments, I ask you to please forgive my assumption that past history was indicative of future returns.

hoops3059d ago

Game looks the same on both with respect to different contrast.
Adjust that TV folk and it will be the exact same.

Frulond3059d ago

well... if you look at the screenies in HD you'll notice the 360 version its more aliased than PS3... don't know if they where trying to make this unnoticeable by adding more contrast.

wicko3059d ago

The 360 isn't more aliased, they both do not have AA enabled. Equally jagged.

But yeah, contrast/brightness differences due to OpenGL and DirectX lighting.

Solidus187-SCMilk3059d ago

taht the PS3 version has more fog.

LostDjinn3059d ago (Edited 3059d ago )

Why would you compare unfinished work with unfinished work just to feed the flamewar? It's either for hits or to reinforce the view that gaming journalism is a joke.
Well let me just say...outstanding work gameswire. Maybe next you could write about how a potato makes an excellent HDD.

Pennywise3059d ago

lol... I agree. A compressed BETA is not representative of the final game. It rarely is...

Alcon Caper3059d ago

not the beta, it's today's demo

Solidus187-SCMilk3059d ago

because this is the demo, which should be representative of the final product and some people have both consoles and would like to know the difference.

Pennywise3059d ago

I meant to say Demo. DEMO - Compressed. I guess the 360 version has no worries since They rock out the compressed files, but the PS3 has no reason for compressed anything with Bluray.

I just dont think 1GB of files will represent the final graphics 100%.

Hate me all you want, but do you guys think before you push disagree on me, or you just dont like me because I call you all out on everything stupid you say?

Alcon Caper3059d ago

haha, pennywise is so delusional it's hilarious

LostDjinn3059d ago (Edited 3059d ago )

The demo disclaimer states:

"The preview levels and online performance are taken from a product that is still in development and as such does not represent the quality and appearance of the final product."

If you actually DL the demo you can read it. Funny that. I stand by my earlier statement.
