These screens were taken from a Head-To-Head video feature.
While both games are reported to be content-identical, the IGN narrator points out the quite noticeable visual differences between both versions.
My take, they both look like crap.
Back to Resistance
Ah are you sad because another port looks like sh!t on the PS3?
"Back to Resistance" is right now I'm back to... ok let me look into my library of 360 games that all look better on the 360
Ok we have Rainbow, The Darkness, FEAR, Spider-Man 3, Armored Core 4, Def Jam Icon, NBA Street Homecourt, Virtua Tennis 3, MLB 2K7, Need for Speed Carbon, COD3, Madden, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, NBA 2K7, Fight Night R3, Tony Hawk, Tiger Woods, Splinter Cell DA and Ridge Racer
And now to the PS3 you have Oblivion and then... (sounds of crickets) and you have... (more crickets) well you have Blu-Ray movies.
I know what your Droids excuses are. "devs are lazy" or "you cant use ports for compairing graphics" I say, there you go call the guys who make 90% of your games lazy and unless you can run Gears on a PS3 then the only posible way to side by side is with ports.

EDIT: PSTripleOG I know I'm a prick, I don't know how many times I have to say it before you learn what kind of asshole I am.
Edit: Asshole or Prick, I dont care. Your LINKS mean SHlT to me.... But if it gets you off, Fair is Fair hehehehehehehehe.
Its simple xbots..
360.. i mean 180 = crappy hardware.. Don't expect MSG4 on The Ringer cause it ain't powerful enough..
Ya'll better get used to 1 hour campaign games with same environments from start to finish... "IF" and only if, you can play at least 10 minutes of a game without wrapping your precious 180 with a towel..
you moron, you give xbots a bad name and that's almost impossible...lol
We don't need a billion links.
How many of those games look better than Heavenly sword?
Really makes me wonder why I paid $600 for the PS3, when my $400 Xbox360 performs most multiplatform titles better...
F*CK SONY! I'm glad they fired me!!
I argree with you 100 percent. But by saying what you said will just cause flame wars. So try not to make sony fans feel to upset. If your going to say how the 360 is better at least say it in a nicer way.
pluss why are the Xbox 360 vs PS3: The Darkness Comparison only have picture there not even at the same frame... i think we should still wait for a video.
PS3 version looks sharper and exciting. I played the game and this article is taking shot a bit away from the comparing shot on the other console. There is not a fair straight up comparion.
Plz ppl, don’t back away from this game looking at this level. There are some really crazy scary good stuff in this game.
Edit: The screenshots do no justise to the game. The game looks very very good.
The game looks "sharper and exciting" on my HDTV than these screenshots.
Actually, the game looks FAR MORE "sharper and exciting" on my HDTV than these screenshots.

You don't do JUSTISE to the word JUSTICE... retard
Almost the same with the 360 version's lighting is barely more vibrant and little less blurry world and the biggest difference you can see between them is the jaggies in the PS3 version when i say biggest difference i mean hardly any at all. Although people are doing comparison with HDTV's with the console side by side which pics on the net usually handi capp a clear picture by default so the differences might be more profound.
Most will not see and difference(look at bed, edges of walls, street lamps) PS3 looks like it has last genertion over all lighting(alley shots).
360's police cruiser shots look darker when things are suppose to be dark and bright when things are suppose to be bright the PS3 version is over all washed out so to speak" in darkness and brightness.
The kitchen shot i cant tell if both version are different because the charectors are in different parts of the area or if the PS3 version has inferior lighting+ shadowing(like devs said we give up on shadowing just make the PS3 version room all bright forget showdows).
i would need to see them be shown side by side.
Though the 360 version seems darker(no pun intended)
I say both look great.
Is that allowed?
You are such a PU55Y... You really love to play it safe and throw your PC response out there... How do you really feel, or are you THAT afraid of losing some bubbles?
Is it really that surprising that the Xbox360 version looks better?
This is the case time and time again.
The PS3 just isn't as developer friendly for multiplatform titles.
1. You don't give the man in your avatar justice. Though you are crazy.
2. Maybe i am just not a fanboy but just a gamer who really doesn't hate any side.
Has that really occurred to you?
From what i see no.
Believe it or not, and get this...
There are actually people who don't hate any side.
As for fear of losing my bubbles, i don't really care.
Maybe i have a high bubble rate because i am not a fan boy, and actually have something intelligent to say.
I guess i can't say the same about you.
As for the screenshots, they basically look the same. Big deal.
My time is money so quit wasting it. Thank you.
Your time is money?
Is that why you spent so much of that time posting 7 comments to this single article?
You're an attention wh0re that likes to play it safe so you feel warm and fuzzy and accepted by everyone.
I'm an unbiasd gamer, go ahead and do some research.
And at face value, it's pretty clear to see which game has the edge graphically here, you're just afraid to say it because you might end up having someone not like you, and you just couldn't handle that :-(
interested in games.
Now i am sorry if you don't like the fact i post a lot certain days. More recently i haven't really been on the site till a few days ago.
So i am kinda making up for lost time.
And i like this site.
By the looks of it you recently joined N4g.
But really man, whats sad is how immature you are, though not as much as many here. You are so confrontational. Very insecure, and frankly i don't know what else to say to you, but i really don't see a difference aside form darkness. Bad eye sight? Brightness on my monitor not good enough, i dunno man, and frankly i don't care.
So really if you want to stay on topic and talk about this game or other games for that matter, sure.
And frankly if you don't take what i say seriously after this then, fine.
_____________________________ ______________________________ _ __________
AS for the screenshots the 360 version looks a little darker and the PS3 version looks brighter. Not much of a difference.
I suggest looking at in game play on both consoles.
Wouldn't that be the best course of action?
Fantastic, cool-headed response as usual, Snoop...it's beyond me how you never fail to lose your bearings...although I can't understand what kind of jollies someone would get from needlessly attacking you of all people - quite likely the most diplomatic and unbiased of all members (Neutral Gamer also comes to mind.)
Rest assured that your input is an important part of these threads and is (obviously) appreciated and respected by the majority; pay no attention to all that anger and noise.
Sean would've been proud...unless, unless you ARE...
BTW: It's funny how those who are so quick to accuse one of committing an innocent typo, are often the very ones who could benefit from a decent string of phonics, grammar and spelling lessons.
Ken aint got no mo bubbles.....too bad.
Not having a fanboy position? I really don't know, has that been done before on N4G? I'm so confused.
I agree though both look good and they look pretty much a like so get over it i say.
So many of theses lemmings take the easy out, and don't man up to how they really feel. I have more respect for a Bill "wannabe" Gates then a Deep(brownnoser) or Snoop_fizzle because they try to play the sideline to often, when its obvious (to me at least) where they really stand. I would much rather have 1 bubble and say what I really feel, then have 100 bubbles and say nothing.
@4.1 Bubble for you sir.
Yeah the PS3 version looks better but no wonder beacuase PS3 is the superior console.
The 360 has less jaggies. Both look like doggy poo IMO.
Don't make stupid comments. The article just said that the 360 version looked better, so by saying yeah it infers that your talking about the article and agree, and when you say that the PS3 version looks better and say yeah to the article it just makes you contradict yourself and seem dumb. So if you disagree with the article for some reason then say "I disagree with the article". Because what you said did not make sence. Also I havn't played eiter versions yet so I'm not sure which versions better, so I'm not getting upset because I think the 360 versions better I just think if your going to post you should do it correctly. If I did have to assume which versions looks better I would say the 360 version just because the fact that all the ports that I have seen so far have looked better on the 360. Oh ya and in no way is the PS3 a superior console.
Aquanox, why are linking to a forum thread that you made???
Wow, I feel stupid. Nothing like news from a fanboy, from a forum, from a thread he created. With pictures, that aren't even at the same location in the game when comparing...
True but the link to the ign article is from the 'premium' section. I assume he has a membership and knows that others are not able to see it so he made a forum post with the highlights... Fair enough in my books...
Another article comparing graphics?! I rather not say which one looks better. I don't have my anti-flame shield on. "360 looks better" (Runs out the room)!!!!
they both look good, just that the ps3 has more jaggies, but that is not going to mnake me want to buy the 360 and not play the ps3 version
Those pics look like they were taken with a walmart disposable.
I would like to see video from the same tv from both systems.
I have the Darkness on 360 and it looks great on my 50" samsung.
on both systems and they both look GREAT. This game rocks and to quote my friend black barney:
--"Hmm.. In the last screenshot, the 360 has less blood.. so PS3 version is obviously better..
Seriously though.. Who cares? Multiplatform games will hardly ever look better one from the other.. Unless it's a 360/PS3 vs. Wii comparison..." lol Aquanox you're hilarious mate. Love the work.
How are we suppose to judge if the screenshots look like garbage? >.>
i have seen the gameplay on the 360 or PS3 im not sure, and it looked great, but considering that the screenshots look practically the same, i am assuming both basically look the same.
version yet again. With its highly advanced more powerful GPU. It has been shown time and time again that the RSX just can't compete with the Xenos.
This is yet another trophy to add to the virtual landslide of games that are graphicly superior on the 360.
Not to mention the 360 has an architecture that is optimized for game coding that leads to smoother overall framerates and generally better overall game performance including online functions.
Really man quit with the flame bait talk.
Considering how biased you are, i am very skeptical on your view of this.
I'm sorry I can't sugarcoat everything to appease the masses like you. The funny thing about it is that I actually own a PS3 as well as a 360 and a Wii.
I'm sorry if I feel the need to take a stand and call BS when I see it. I have been a gamer for quite some time and I am also a fan of technology. But I am sick of Sony's overhyping of their products.
The simple fact is if the PS3 20 times the power of the PC and capable of all these great things you would have seen a giant leap over the 360 in graphics even at launch.
So don't try and use you dribble to try and downplay everyones intelligence. This is a debate you know. Albeit not a very serious one.
The funny thing about it is that some of the most intelligent people on this website are afraid to say what they really think bc of bubble issues.
Bootsielon and Madden's Raiders come to mind. The funny thing about people like you is that you are so transparent. Its obvious you favor the 360...you, Koolkat007, Feral Pheonix. And on the other end of the Spectrum is Satanas, Virtual Gamer for PS3.
Its all in good fun so stop trying to do damage control and make everything PC. It really isn't necessary.
i will say for now i do like the 360 more, but i will gladly buy a PS3 when the time comes. I have said that countless times.
I ask you this question.
Compared to everyone else and some posers might i add. Why should i take what you say seriously? Why not i get the info from a developer? Why you.
I mean ill give you the benefit of the doubt that you are a real gamer, but can you blame me for being skeptical?
Really i didn't much of a difference in the screens honestly.
And do i really want to hear a walking billboard for a console? No.
The reason why recently i am getting pissed at people starting flame wars is because its the same thing over and over. After a while it just gets boring. I come here when i can(fortunetly i have been able to recently) to see some news on games, not see immature 34 yr olds fight constantly, though admittedly it can be fun. Thats all.
Edit: The one thing i do agree with you about though is sony over hyping. They did underestimate Msoft this time around. But i see BS on all sides, not just sony. Look who speaks for Msoft and Sony.
"With its highly advanced more powerful GPU. It has been shown time and time again that the RSX just can't compete with the Xenos."
With a comment like that, you would think the 360 version would be far more advanced than the PS3 version, which of course it isn`t.
Jaggies all over the PS3 version.
EDIT: Hey snoop_dizzle you going to use up all your bubbles "trying" to spin this news? Can't spin when the wheels are broken.
That's crazy, b/c you have as many bubbles as Ken, none.
Ya'll need to quit attacking people who don't participate in your idiotic "wars." Snoop had an honest opinion and obvioulsy, judging by the bubles, you two don't.
I'm just not seeing much of a difference between either version. I'm not going to look for something that isn't there to nitpick. The game looks cool either way.
You obviously have a heart full of NEUTRALITY!!
Glad you caught it :)
They look the same. In all honesty if I post 2 identical screenshots and state one comes from ps3, and other comes from xbox 360, most of you people will state xbox 360 looks better, and others will state ps3 looks better. Give it a rest.
Maybe this isn't what you intended, but it did give me an idea. Next time I'd like to see a "vote for which screenshots look better" where there is a blind implemented and the fanboys wont know which consol they're voting for. There would still be argument afterwards though. "It looks 10 times better on my 360 than it does in those screens!" -or- "They were using component cables with the PS3, no wonder it looks like crap!" All this, of corse, would begin when you revealed which system was voted the better looking.
both looks identical..mulitplatform will look the same..the exclusive game will show the difference
see... can you see now
I played it on PS3 and 360 and they both look the same, but really why would you give a F&^k unless you were about to buy one of the systems just for this game. If you fit this description then you are a dumb a$$. It's a great game but its not that big of a deal. I'm tired of the comparisons of 360 ports to PS3. Wait until a PS3 game is ported to the 360 before you put up another post like this or just wait to compare the top games on each platform that is similar so we can discuss what we like about each one instead of examining photo that are irrelevant because we have no idea of how they were captured and what the settings on the systems and tv sets were. It's like watching dogs take a $hit and comparing which one looks the best.
but maybe during gameplay they are not noticeable.
well, i will wait for eurogamer.net comparison, they do best VS at that point.
The screenshots aren't even identical. They show the same area of the game not the same screen as each other. I want to see the same garbage can, street light, etc in the same part of the screen. They could've done better matching screens
Bravo! (that's a bubble folks!)
Yes, a bubble for you from me as well! Although, I often don't agree with you, this comment is spot on, and one of the most relevant I have seen in this thread so far. The comparison is BS because the shots are not exactly the same.
I don`t care for this game but both versions look good.
Should probably at least give it a rent, while it can be done in a weekend or so it's still a good story and such.
Seriously...They both look great. I am so tired of the mine looks better than yours arguments here. Lets be honest...Sony fanboys tout theirs either looks better or looks a little worse due to lazy devs in order to save face on their choice and justify the PS3 right now. Xbox fanboys are no better... you see the same comments...Oh another title that looks better on the 360...and even if its hardly noticable you wouldnt' know it by their comments. To them it sounds like an 8 bit game being compared to modern day games. This again just to justify their purchase of a 360 and to back up their reasons why they bought a 360.
Fact is this game looks great on both systems. PS3 may have minor slow down but honestly unless its really, really bad I have personally never been truly bothered by slowdown in a game.
I just wish both sides would face the fact that both systems are great and neither one is going to be justifiably better than the other, not now...and most like not in the future. Arguments to buy each can be reasonably made on a number of factors. Really its about which games you want to play because performance wise...they really are pretty much equals.
this site has become flame wars to the 'enth degree
its funny how these kinds of topics flame up.....but for me i could care less about which version as long as i get to play the game
i like jaggies, slow framerates and sub par online play so I am gonna go with PS3 version.
Because comments like this are from usually people with 10 to 12 ignores. :). I'm going to for some reason lose a bubble for this. Oh well.
i am amazed you have a p3nis since you whine like a little girl.
all of this comparision crap is just going over board just like all of the freaking 360 will die on you crap mess! There just isn't anything here big enough to compare because they both look so identical even with the jaggies!
Just watched GTA4 2nd trailer in HD. In regular version jaggies were very noticeable, now when i watched HD version, i almost didn`t see them.
Atleast in motion, it`s not that noticeable.
If you don`t believe, just watch both and you will see.
It seems we just can't get enough!
Developers are always going to try to make them as close as possible on 360 and PS3 - any differences we might see are only an indication of their failure to do so, not a reflection on the hardware.
360 version look darker when things are suppose to be dark and bright when things are suppose to be bright the PS3 version is over all washed out so to speak" in darkness and brightness.
You can't really tell untill dude posted new pics of the charctor in the night with the gun in the leather jacket PS3 is clearly inferior the light is better in the 360 version better showing off lighting reflecting of the skin and the black leather coat; looks more natural.
I want to know what kind of tv's were used. was hdmi used and was it 1080p capable. Hdmi would definitely smooth out the jaggies. you can tell this reveiwer is bias "Online gameplay is better in the Xbox 360 because of Xbox Live" since it's the same game mode online how would it be better. Just to prove a point I'm going to rent the 360 and the PS3 version and play it on my 40" samsung 1080p and see if there is any visual difference. I'm sick of all this comparisons, especially when I see the pictures of the PS3 and they look washed out and I'm playing on my screen and they look more detail and colorful. So I think alot has to do with them using component cables since the 360 premium doesn't have hdmi, but that's not Sony fault.
HDMI smooth jaggies?
On what hardware?
Sorry, but, if anything, HDMI *introduces* jaggies that aren't there on antialiased games.
You ever hear of overscan? It totally kills anti-aliasing. And the majority of HDMI-equipped HDTVs out there stupidly overscan everything except VGA.
Of course, for some reason, PS3 developers *don't* appear to use anti-alisiasing at all, which makes things worse once overscan on HDMI and component kicks in. Wish somebody would explain why anybody would think resolution is better than antialising or higher frame-rates...
if you guys have to look that close for differences, its not worth trying to say which ones is better.
Theres something wrong with this site because I agreed with you but it said disagree!This isn't the 1st time either where I agreed and it still popped up disagree!
