Gameswire has compared screenshots of the recently-released PS3 and Xbox 360 demos of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 to see which version has the early lead.
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.
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.. PEACE AND GAMING!!!!!
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.
Scale > Graphics imho APOFISBORICUA ex: Mag
Oh I am sorry, this game will be so much better on one platform than the other. What was I thinking!?!
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.
Is it me or is there something seriously wrong with these screens? Neither seem to represent the actual game.
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
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.
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
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.
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. :) http://www.gameswire.net/co...
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.
Darn the 360 wins, I have the PS3 demo tho but now I wish I had the 360 one
Both console versions are too jagged and have awful screen tearing issues.
a comparison uses rgb limted shots GTFO
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" :-)
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. >: \
cool. I haven't decided what version I'll get yet. I'll have to wait and see.
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?
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.
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!
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.
^This matters more to people playing the game rather than whose rocks look better.
Adjust the lighting and contrast and its the same
... speaking of detail, what happened to the fence in the ps3 version? http://www.gameswire.net/co... Is that to do with the lighting?
No, it probably has to do with destructible environments. Come on now, you're smarter than that!
nevermind, Motion beat me to the punch.
It's not a lighting contrast difference hoops. Look at this shot in broad daylight: http://www.gameswire.net/co... 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.
Commodore - REALLY? A fence? REALLY?
been playing for 2 hours, and the fences look great ;)
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.
Game looks the same on both with respect to different contrast. Adjust that TV folk and it will be the exact same.
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.
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.
taht the PS3 version has more fog.
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.
lol... I agree. A compressed BETA is not representative of the final game. It rarely is...
not the beta, it's today's demo
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.
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?
haha, pennywise is so delusional it's hilarious
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.
Totaly agree with the gamerzone right now. This matters to no one. get the game and play with your friends. if you dont have friends get the ps3 version and save money on online fees for dlc or another game entirely.
Once again the 8 core beast fails to deliver what a RROD mini PC can do ...
funny how 360 fanboys go crazy about tv settings changed... they're comparing demos retard...
If you really look at the shots then up close the PS3 version looks better, the stuff in the distance looks better on the 360. Just look at the gun, the PS3 version has loads of detail, the 360 version looks black, but if you look out into the distance then the city looks crisper on the 360, and the PS3 version looks a little foggy. So how can this be? If these shots are comparing the two demos, well the ps3 beta was out two months prior to the demo being relased on the 360, that's alot of time to improve things.
IMHO The Xbox360 version is the one that fails hard. If we are to look at realistic point of view & based on first pic, how is it possible for someone to see such small particles in full building or even the clear mountains from such a far distance?! Unless your telling me his wearing a microscopic goggle lenses or something. The lighting had all gone wrong.. Xbox360 version = Unrealistic graphical fiction
On the 8th screenshot with the ladder, it shows one of my buddies, dofens getting a kill! What are the chances of that...!
Wait for Lens of Truth or Digital Foundry's in depth analysis
Where is videogamezone.de's comparison? lol! I don't like the in-depth comparisons that measure framerates, v-sync etc. They always favor the 360 version.
Yep from what i see both are the same only ps 3 is brighter why it looses its details in textures. Both look the same. And at 6.1 is that the reason you don't like those in depth comparison. Graphics isn't all about that one frame but you need to look to the complete package.
Screenshot comparisons are the most superficial kinds of comparisons you can do. I too will wait for the more in depth comparisons. I already played the 360 demo and I have been trying to download the PS3 version, but it hasn't shown up in the store yet (or at least a few hours ago when I checked). Does anybody know when it is going to show up in the playstation store? I want to do my own comparison. That is what I usually do.
This has to be the worst comparision I have ever seen. None of the images are reflective. Just in the general area of it's opposite. And Dice has already said that the final product will look better than the ps3, PC beta/demo and the 360 demo. So who cares for this so called comparision.
Looks like it's being made on PC or 360 in mind, n the PS3 as the port, but it's best to see how the finished product will turn out, in each demo, it looks like one has something the other is missing, and vice versa!!!!
I bet Xbots will treat this as an exclusive since they don't have one. Failbox 360. Test in.
confirmed, Xbox exclusives are not only better, they tell 10 times more !!!! So that's exclusives AND Multiplats now ... Did you get your teeth whitened yet you stinky droids?
They tell 10 times more? What does that mean?
But more importantly, they both suffer from the lack of AA, JAGGIE. That's one thing that annoys me more than a dash of lighting effect or small texture differences. When you look at a fence or building or box it looks terribly jaggie.
They already said its built for each system separate... so the way you see it is WRONG.
another great work so that no fanboy can complain! :D good job Dice for delivering the same awesome experience to both console (and pc too, but I'm still waiting for Battlefield 3 for that one)
wtf! why does 360 look better? I wonder if this is fake, IF THIS IS REAL SCREW YOU DICE!
Why are you so surprised? Bad Company 1 looked better on the 360. Mw2 also did. So...
They said they prefer the ps3 version for its better lighting. But whatever get it for whatever system you like more I dont care.
I can tell right off the bat that the ps3 version has much much better lighting. Everything else looks exactly the same but the 360 demo isjust soo much darker in some places. It hides alot of detail in the darkness. I swear the lighting differences are huge! Don't beleive me download both versions and see for yourself. I totally thought this would be the other way around this time.
