The Darkness has invaded two next-gen powerhouses and GameTrailers.com has lined them up so you can decide which has the graphical edge.
that the PS3 version has a nice hint of color to it. But an impressive game overall.
don't say that. Everyone knows the 360 is superior in all ways shapes and forms. You trying start a flame war
*Rabble Rabble RABBLE RABBLE*
Hey he was just kidding the 360 version has polygons so sharp his eyes are bleeding right now. Nothing to see here.
The 360 version is dull!!!! hahahahahaha Disagree if you want xbots. LIL [email protected]
There is a Video quality setting were you have a colour correction option at the start of the game. This does add a more vibrant colour scheme. And you can choose a colour scheme that does looked washed out.
It must be said the PS3 version did have more colour in this video, but my 360 version which I have just watched again at the same starting sequence, isn't as washed out as the game appears on the Game trailers video.
This could be just a video setting more than anything else. If not then the PS3 version does have a bit more colour.
I also have a PS3 but wanted the 360 version because I have more of a friends list. It had nothing to do with graphics.
360 still has the AA edge slightly but neither version look bad and in motion not many people can tell the difference....
Enjoy the game, its pretty cool on either console.
to me. I'm not saying its a fact but to me the PS3 version looks cleaner. The X360 version has way too much blur.
outdoes the PS3 on, it's a next gen image blurrer....lmao
there goes that "anit-aliasing" that the xbortions keep yapping about.
oh and as far as color, that's what RGB FULL does for the PS3 you xmorons, I would put my PS3 up against ANY 360 anyday because I know which console has the better graphics. I can see it with my own two eyes and don't need these bought and paid for sites like 1up to tell me which game "looks better". Even the idiots here know that but use it to get under PS3 fans skin.
this is also what happens when an unbiased website doesn't cripple the PS3's output. When you use HDMI,1080p,RGB FULL and super black/white contrast on a flatpanel display, THE PS3 VERSION DESTROYS THE 3FIXME IN EVERY GAME THEY HAVE IN COMMON.
to see these idiots carrying on and patting themselves in the back like they already won the war is comedy gold. I always knew in time the truth would come out and now it is. Suck on it xbots, you had it coming for being ignorant fanboys.
wow, I ask my friend to first look and tell me where the ps3 and xbox sign is, then i try to block it out for the whole video so i can be unbiased. I gotta to say, the color this time i have to give it to the PS3, i surprised myself there. I thought the xbox version would have better color bc it usually does, but this time PS3 has better color, it doesn't look as wash out as other ports. The xbox version on the other hand had a film of piss-green/yellow tint to it, wtf. TV setting?? or what
Starbreeze dedicated two teams to each console when developing this game. Thats why the game looks equally stunning on both consoles. The minor variations being the Xbox360 not having the AA issues in certain areas, and the PS3 having a sweeter/deeper color palette.
I think the differences are minimal, unlike splinter cell. Regardless, it is an awesome game.
PS3 has jaggies but better color. 360 has no jaggies but lacks color in the faces.
Ps3 version looks lighter and has more colors, surprised i thought 360 has better lighters, but not always. Maybe it's because the game originally was a ps3 exclusive, then announced multi-platform, so originally ground-up for ps3.
I saw the video, PS3 version is more vivid than the 360 version in terms of color and all (Not washed out like the other ports, awesome!!!), but PS3 has jaggies, not really noticable though, the 360 takes the win on that part, but both games look really good
Finally we can see what that other post was talking about.
wow I'm surprised the ps3 version looks slightly better, thought it was the other way around... now the ps3 version needs AA fixed and it's perfect, both look good
It's almost surprising, but the ps3 version has better lighting, and is more clear. I think with these multiplatform games it's going to keep going both ways, especially when developers get the grips with the ps3.
PS3 version looks better.
what the hell are guys talking about. The 360 version is SOO much clearer. Nice try sony fangirls, LMAO "more color" come on seriously.
uh, almost everyone on this forum is agreeing so far, especially the Microsoft and SOny Fanboys, dont be blind
did this retard even look at the video or is he still ogling the screenshots?
why don't we just copy and paste the flamewar from the similar post yesterday and save everyone some typing?
It's going to be the same thing.
I agree but due to timezones some people may have missed out on that flamewar and everybody deserves seconds if they want.
Wii version FTW
This time around, the 360s version looks to be the washed out, greenish tone looking one. Also sligtly less sharp and deep in contrast.
Often times, it's the other way around so don't hate. It's just an opinion base on my observation of the low-res video.
The 360 version looks more green. Is that on purpose?
Green 360 but Gates sees only red on paper.
theres no new info here
it doesnt matter how many different sources point of that the 360 version looks a little betterl.....the sony fanboys will always deny
Overall...I don't care much for this game
looks like your the one in denial
They both look great but the PS3 version has way better colors. The 360 version looks to greenish and a tiny bit unpolished. Nevertheless a great games for whichever console you have.
PS3 looked so REALASTIC AND NOT FOGGY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a huge contradiction to the earlier comparisons this morning. The 360 guys where flaming like crazy. It goes to show. What goes around comes around. Awesome work on Starbreeze for making both versions look so close.
Can anyone tell me what rez the Xbox version runs at? Is it 1080i maximum?
I too would like to know.
That IGN has pictures with the xbox leading the comparison and then this video comes out. The PS3 is clearly the better of the two in this video with better color, and clarity.
Funny how these comparisons can go both ways. Can we put a rest to this now and just concede that both systems are nice, and that both are virtually the same for 3rd party multi plat games?
They both look pretty damn good , But in this video PS3 has the clear edge!
yea ps3 has better color nd edge...
So ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha........my ps3 ver. looks better and this is vid footage not some crappy still pics. purposelessly taken to make the ps3 look bad.
The only thing that stands out to me is the PS3 has better skin tone saturation then the 360 ver.
Besides that they both look the same to me.
the ps3 version hands down is sharper, and doesn't have the burry look to it.
360 version looks sharper, PS3 is jaggy.
ps3 jaggy and blurry are you high or just stupid the ps3 version is clearly better lookin dont be so upset bout it tho cmon it was juss a matter of time b4 the ps3 started to pull ahead
iam a ps3 owner but i must say i am not biased towards my brand. Although it seems that the ps3 version has an edge here. more color means more life.but the xbox360 is also good though.
However, I have never heard or read that PS3 (or 360) has any advantage in colors. This comparison has a completely different results from IGN and GameSpot.
BTW, just so you know, IMO, GameTrailer does have a bias for PS3. If you go over to its forums, you will see that the place is run by Sony fanboys, and many moderators show in their profiles that they are PS3 fans and dislike Microsoft. And a couple more extreme GameTrailer moderators would ban people for just saying "I would never get a PS3 (until it gets cheaper.)"
That's the situation in GameTrailer forums. The main section is under different management.
Hm, so let me get this straight, Gametrailers is biased, but this site isnt? This place is crawling with 360 fanboys, and more so than Sony ones. And this is coming from a 360 owner. They both look pretty much the same.
R.I.P my 2nd 360 (died on May 29th), lasted 1-yr and 3 months. And come on, 3rd one (that's costing me $35 to fix, cuz thats how low i got MS to bring it down to). And please last more than 5 yrs (yeah right!)
PS3 it is, the public has spoken....stick to crappy OS's bill.
Ps3 is def better, but both look great.
If I see it in my area I'll pick it up, but does anyone agree that these differences in most of these multi-platform games are so minimal as to not have a strong impact regardless of what platform you're playing on? It seems that the worst of the ports and multiplats have passed, and developers are starting to lock on much more efficient methods of coding for both machines.
I won't even comment on which looks better, because the game just looks flat out good, and that's the most important thing IMO.
At this point, I think the best method to go about choosing which system to get your multi-plats on would be based on your preference for their online gaming and the comfort of the controller. If you like Live and the 360 controller, get a 360, if the same applies for PSN and the SIXAXIS, go with it. Hats off to Starbreeze for delivering a stellar game on both fronts, and this bodes very well for their upcoming Riddick remake.
I got to agree that the PS3 has more color. I'm a PS3 owner first off, but really these comparisons are pointless. Somebody will try to spin this and say something like "Well, they may have turned down the color for the Xbox 360 version so that the PS3 version will look like it has more". Look at Ktchong's post(btw, no hating and disrespect to you), he said that gametrailers are sony-biased. Whether if its true or not, who knows really. That's why the best way to compare is just to do your own side-by-side comparison "if you can" with the TV settings in default. That's what I'm going to do tomorrow. I'll bring my PS3 and the Darkness that I rented to my friend's pad (who's an Xbox owner and just bought Darkness)and just compare it myself in his HDTV.
You can go there and see for yourself.
I know what you're trying to say, dude and I'm not saying your lying or anything. Regardless, if their Sony-biased, Xbox-biased, Wii-biased, or even Dreamcast-biased, it is still better to just do the comparison yourself if possible. That way you can really judge it yourself because you're right there watching it.
Well, is the graphic in the PS3 version $200+ better?
For the one game no, for what is out before Christmas yes. The PS3 will last 7 years at least, I know the $200 was worth it. When they start filling Blu-Ray disks with larger games with unrepetative scenery I will also know it was worth it. I am not knocking other consoles neither, but that is why I chose the PS3.
This game is slightly better on the PS3, but come on the 360 has had it all one way till now.
37 - Depends which you prefer, Driving Rally Cars or FPS. The most polished is Dirt in my opinion.
Which game should I get?
because it is awesome.
Some moderators are Sony-biased. Just to give you an example:
Someone posted two very similar threads: one in the Xbox 360 forum, the other in the PS3 forum.
For the Xbox 360 forum: "What PS3 exclusives do you wish are also on Xbox 360?" And the people in that forum actually had a healthy discussion and started posting their wish lists.
Then, about a day later, the same person posted in the PS3 forum: "What Xbox 360 exclusives do you wish are also on PS3?" It's almost the exact same counterpart topic, right? The message includes the same content with the last message, word for word, with the words "PS3" and "Xbox 360" switched around.
The guy was banned immediately for supposedly starting a "flame bait", and the moderator who banned the guy said: "We don't want any Xbox 360 games. They all suck." And he locked that thread. It's incredible. Just goes to show ya how open-minded the PS3 fanboys are.
So I checked the moderator's profile. In his blog, the guy was bashing Microsoft and singing praises of Sony and PS3. And then I got curious and wanted to check on other moderators. So I checked a few more moderators' profiles... and read their blogs and "favorite lists" and their past comments. Some were fair-minded people, but there are a few "bad apples" who were PS3 fanboys who really hate Microsoft. It's quite shocking. How the heck did those people even become moderators?? (And I haven't been able to find any moderators who are "Xbots" -- I suppose it would have been fine if there were moderators who are 360 fans; that would "balance" things out.)
After having read those moderators' blogs and known who they are, I seriously question their impartiality and neutrality in moderating the GameTrailer forums.
That's the FORUMS. I have no idea who or what kinds of people run the main website. I believe the main site is under an entirely different management.
Is because it is fixed? Ganetrailers are a bunch sony fanboys, and would lie and deceive their members in a video? Great conspiracy you got there :).
talk about being desperate, anything else you want to report on this conspiracy theory.
to me they were pretty much identical most of the time with xbox winnin some scenes but ps3 won more scenes especially the slower scenes where i could actually see
The graphics are sharper and the light was more vibrant. THeir was no framerate problem for either game, and no noticable jags. Actually this was the first game that really had a clear victor for ps3. I think this is on the same level as call of duty 3 for xbox 360, and playstation 3.
When I say jaggies you say Sony.... jaggies..... Sony... jaggies Sony... haha!
You Sony fanboys should not be complaining.... at least you get extra jaggies for $200 more.... jaggies are next gen.... jaggies are next gen.
There really aren't jaggies. But the ps3 does have sharper graphics, and better lighting. You even have to admit that the ps3 version clearly looks much better.
being an xbox 360 owner, the video does appear to show the ps3 with better lighting and more vivid colour. I also own this game for 360 and play on an HDTV (it seems most do these days). Interestingly the colour can be changed in the game (there are presets which do provide a considerable change in the colour). This may have an influence in the appearance, but one can not refute the truth the ps3 has the power, I just wish it had a more high-end GPU. Thankfully the CPU helps make up for that.
both games look great but... IMHO I'll give the nod this time to the Ps3 because it has alot better colors going this time!!
another thing(off topic) its been said that the Ps3 is a more powerful gaming system than the 360, well... what I want to know is how did people come to this conclusion. what have we seen that says "wow"the PS3 is definitely more powerful than the 360. is it because it can play Blu ray movies,or because it can fold(non gaming application)what? I really want to know what gives sony or anybody else the idea that the Ps3 is more powerful!! is it because it says it on paper!! example!! if I can bench press 500 pounds an you can only bench press 350 pounds that makes me stronger than you!! if I can run 100 meters in 11 seconds an you run it in 14 seconds that means I'm faster than you(you get the idea) what has the PS3 done to SHOW that its stronger than the 360. I know one thing, alot of sony boys claim it, but by what grounds!! everybody KNEW the xbox 1 was stronger than the PS2 because it showed an it showed convincingly. so whats the problem here. was there any dispute that the SNES was more powerful than the sega genesis, nope!! it was obvious when you looked at the games. so with that being said, what are you guys going by when you say the PS3 is more powerful!!
Ps3 version is slightly better due to more realistic lighting and colour.
The 360 version does everything the Ps3 one does, but it seems to be almost coming through a 'filter'. The black screen on the 360 has a greenish brown tint to it. Having said that, the anti aliasing on the 360 is always on. Do you think this effects blacks/whites and colours?
Ok we could all tell that the original xbox was more powerful than the ps2. The reason being is because the the Xbox hardware came out 2years after the ps2, and was also easier for western developers to come to grasp with because of the Direct X development environment. Which is pretty much the standard in america. Now lets look at the PS3 and 360, The same strength for the 360 comes into play again, the Direct X environment. Now the PS3 might be more powerful, im not sure IMHO opinion i think they are about equal, back to the topic the PS3 is harder to develop for so its going take more time to get the graphics out of the PS3, just like the PS2. PS2 graphics were butt compared to the XBOX1, till the latter half of it life cycle when devs finally got the hang of the machine, Games like GOW1&2, and GT4 are signs that developers finally got the hang of the machine cuz the graphics on those games were of xbox quality and i will even go as far as to say GT4 look better than forza 1. Also these machines started there life around the same time, so they hardware was at the same limit for both. Where the xbox had hardware from two years later than ps2. so for the most part the games are gonna look the same.
I am kind of surprised IGN and Gametrailers comparisons are so different. However, color saturation aside, just pause the video when they're in the car. Notice how this time around, the wall detail is sharper and clearer on the PS3. This is VERY surprising as previous multi-platform games always led me to believe the Xbox360 had the edge in terms of texture and detail. Guess devs are finally figuring out that whole multi-threading process for PS3.
I wouldn't read too much in this comparison anybody with half a brain knows somethings wrong with the video quality on the 360 side. Quality is worse in this 360 vid than in other comparisons all the otherS show the 360 is more vibrant THE PROOFS IN THE VIDEO QUALITY YOU SEE HOW PIXELATED THE 360 SIDE IS COMPARED TO THE PS3 VERSION SOMETHINGS NOT RIGHT ABOUT IT(ALTERED VIDEO FOR SOME PERSONAL AGENDA, THE 360 VERSION'S NOT WASHED OUT WE'VE BEEN PLAYING THE GAME AT MY BUDS HOUSE HE HAS BOTH CONSOLES)
You would have to be an idiot not to see the two versions car scene through the tunnel the PS3 video is better quality and is clean and the 360 video is more Youtube quality. We've been playing the game on both consoles and i agree with IGN from proof the PS3 verion gets beat. Nuff said have fun with this BS post fanatics
Defend to the hilt huh? Put yer dummy back in!! Ignorant fangirl.
Watch it a few times you'll see the 360 version's video's so pixelated it looks milky even though in realality the 360 version has deeper blacks, color and richer lighting. I do agree there is an un-natural orange glow in the PS3 version that does not match the light sources in the enviroments(white light orange reflections).
Sorry but that video's quality isn't matched up evenly in quality. Go by IGN.
If you fanatics pay attention to the video of the car scense driving through the tunnel it shows the PS3 verion first with little pixelation than you get hit by a mack truck when it switches over to the 360 side with faded milky film of dancing pixelated squares fading out even the black colors. lol
((((((((kevin1122))))))))) I came here watched the video and after the first time i commented; you tell me to get a life for that? its my opinion fool!, a Chimp can look at the video and see most of that video has the 360 version with quality so poor its a wonder even the morons couldn't see it(Youtube looks good compared to that ok not as bad). Watch it again look at the dancing squares hovering around making the video milky and faded and foggy(like is some MAss Effect videos vs the HD ones), thats all i can do and say it doesn't really matter only fools would think otherwise, no need to get ass-hurt.
Theres no place like home...

The 360 version's video quality isn't worse...

If you say it enough it might come true. lol
