Which Final Fantasy has the finest fidelity?
it only does 576 p :P
next gen they should go for cassette tape! just like the spectrum! amagine how much money they could save!
...LOW STANDARDS!!! ;-D
1080P No installing Superior graphics with no jaggies One Blu Ray Disc No loading times Dualshock3 compatible Superior sound Playstation 3 version is without any doubt superior. Playstation 3, home of Final Fantasy 13, Final Fantasy 14 and Final Fantasy Versus 13. Year of the Playstation 3, get used to it. @below I know. Thats not the first time things like that has happened. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 was vastly superior on the PS3 with much more added content, extra characters, better graphics, improved camera (fixed the bugs) angle, improved action gameplay. And even added a COOP mode (which is one of the main arguments used to deduct points from PS3 games). And look at where that got m from sites like IGN(orant). Their forums exploded that day with angry people questioning their methods and did you know what they said? They basically said that because its on PS3, they are more critical of the game. If thats true, than why are they and every other site always comparing PS3 with 360? I said it before and Ill say it again: THE GAMING INDUSTRY IS CORRUPT.
Gamespot scored Bayonetta on the ps3 lower(rightly so) because it was inferior to the 360 version. But Gamespot scored Final Fantasy 13 for 360 ( WTF!?) the same as the ps3 version. When the ps3 version is vastly superior to the 360. I mean 1080p vs 576p. Really!?
Anyways, ive said it before but this video just enforce my opinions. What a great job porting, the difference is unnoticable to casual gamers. I mean without the xbox or ps3 logo, very most majority of people cant tell which is which. Only fanboys cares about this microscopic difference, hell at times the xbox version looked better. :) @Death2429 have you even look at the video, the difference for FF13 is microscopic. Bayonetta got low score on PS3 is because of peformance and bugs...
For a cheap ass console like the 360 what do you expect? it look like sh!t
Metacritic proves the 360 version is better. The most reliable source in the industry (Edge) reviewed the PS3 version and gave it 5/10. Enough said.
The biggest final fantasy games were on play station...(get over it )and the best ones (with the exception of 5)...Which came out later
really. enough said? lmao. so on metacritic ps3 version has a rating of 50 from EDGE but the 360 version doesn't? lmao am i missing something?
Funny how there wasn't a single mention of the PS3 version of FFXIII being vastly superior to the 360 version in GT's review. Like IGN and Gamespot, GT is at a loss for words when it comes to owning up and admitting that the Playstation actually did something better than the xbox. Whatever. Me? I already know compromises were made to the game in order for it to be xbox compatible. I'll be waiting for the "International Version" that you know is coming within a year or two, hopefully with a Japanese language track. Not like there's a shortage of other great games on the PS3 this year anyway.
Gt have been caught on 3 seperate occassions doctoring videos in favour of 360 and they still act like they are credible? Anyone apart from 360 cheerleaders who believe anything from gt are in one word 'blinded'
People are trying to make the argument that its "buh buh just the performance that makes ps3 versions lower" No, its JUST visual hiccups, lack of resolution, etc. We have been hearing this since day 1. "o ps3 version had a screen tear? FLOP 1/10!"... Sure, versions that have performed barely different have also been scored lower. The point is that its always scored differently for ANY difference. Theres always a PS3 then 360 review. Except for FF13.. its fun but IGN/Gamespot, hell.. everyone just lost their credibility to appease MS. So if they did it for this, what makes you think they haven't been sided this entire time?
People on the site actually believe they look the same Nothing beats having a game at home on your own tv when i comes to comparisons. The only time these two versions look the same is in SD AND on a small screen (at or under 22 inches). There is a world of difference on my 47in HDTV though and that's just in video.
Haven't even played it yet... And it already looks better than the 360 version ;)
@1.4 Yes, the Playstation brand has had more good FF games, so people can quit claiming it's a Nintendo series. However, it seems you are implying that the Playstation iterations are better, except for 5? If that's what you are saying, I strongly disagree. 5 is a decent game, but falls more into the group with FF1-3. FF4 and 6, however, are just as good as any FF released on the PS, with 6 being my favorite (7, 8, 9 and 10 are all a tie for 2nd, unless you count Tactics, which would be 2nd). That being said though, you can find the ps1 version for all the earlier FF games. As for the video, the difference is fairly substantial, especially on a decent sized HDTV (32"+), with the biggest difference easily being the FMVs, which go down from 1080p on the 360, which is barely 1/2 the resolution.
Log-No. Byonetta on the PS3 was NEVER any worse of a port than FF13 to 360 is. Neither have anything even approaching game breaking(even by comparison to the better console version)wrong with them and , personally, I'd have left it at a mention in the words of my review and not marked EITHER port down on the scores. Bayonetta did have some slowdown and some long loads but that was it for what you could ever really notice and the game looked and ran a LOT better than a lot of sites and their screenshots would have you believe. I CHOSE the PS3 version after p[laying a bit of both because the differences were so small that ,my preference for the DS3 over the 360- pad was a way more important factor in my decision! In all honestly there's possibly MORE reason to switch to the PS3 version of FF13 than there was to go the other way over Bayo. FF13 on 360 loses out on resolution and audio and for a FF HD title I think they're massively important aspects of your experience-for such a visually strong series it's poor to offer 360- only gamers a sub HD performance for their long awaited, much vaunted and much advertised by SE's words as either identical or better than the PS3s, version of FF13.Then you have the fact you need three discs to swap around on the 360 and , though that's not the end of the world in any sense it IS another difference that favours the PS3 this time out-how does it NOT compare to the, now patched and near as damn gone, Bayo problems? Certainly, though, there's no way either are too weak to play and given the power I'd, again, never dock a point for such tiny beans,.However, if you as a site , docked one you must do the same to the other or risk looking a little more biased than they really should be able to get away with. I expect a little leaning towards the console of your readerships choice but this is going a little too far as the net effect on Metacritic is misleading to gamers and makes a nonsense of the whole review and meta system. I don't accept, though, for one minute that there were any more or any greater reasons to dock Bayo PS3 than there are to dock FF13 360 because there just aren't. All we want is consistency as n one expects perfection but if you want to make a massive deal of one you really should do about the other. Double standards really are damaging to the credibility of the gaming media-just no need for it at this level where it actually gets to the point where gamers can easily get the wrong impression from Metacritic as a result of a lt of sites only reviewing the PS3 version as those sites also seem to be the ones hammering SE's game in general and adding in GS and GT who SHOULD be docking points off the 360 version(in order to appear fair and even handed)but just aren't is allowing the 360 version to appear to review a little better even though it's easily the weaker(though it's not nearly as world crushingly poor as some make out and will be almost equally enjoyable if not totally unless you're a freak for the HD and lossless auidio or think swapping discs just because MS stuck with DVD9 and then didn't put an HDD on every console, is not OK!)version of the two. It isn't the end of the world but does show a bit of a double standard in effect to me.
Can you spot the Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuge difference between both versions? Come on i was expecting a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuge leap from Blu-Ray Version. well that is what you guys make me believe.
And a huge moron.
Watch bot DF and Lens of Truth's comparisons and you'll see that Gametrailers HD video is badly encoded, making the PS3 version look worse than it really is. http://n4g.com/News-488817.... http://n4g.com/News-486408.... Can't believe anyone trust Gametrailers comparisons, and that nobody calls them out on this...
Everybody knows which version looks better. But unfortunately Gametrailers video quality sucks, so I doubt you can get the full detail within these videos. Gametrailers videos have resolution of 960x540 for their HD videos and are heavily compressed. Source within the first paragraph below. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... The 360 iteration of FF13 is barely above this. Whereas the PS3 version is 720p ingame but 1080p with pre-rendered CG. I do not think that everyone will notice the difference right away. The only way in which you will notice a difference is if you have them side by side. But the PS3 is clearly superior in this case. Anyway the choice is clear if you have the choice, otherwise you can still enjoy the game nonetheless elsewhere.
PS3 is 720p gameplay and 1080p movies. PS3 couldnt handle these graphics at 1080, just like it couldn't handle Uncharted 1 or 2 at 1080p, KillZone 2 at 1080p, or God of War 3 at 1080p. All those games are 720p, this one including.
Well to be honest this video doesnt do either version justice. I watched my friends sync up the open videos on 2 Xboxs and it looked beautiful! even for the 360 version. But from this video i do not see any difference in the 2 versions, i would like to see it first hand.
playing the ps3 version now! good thing i dont have to worry about bad textures and installations
Neither version has to worry about installation. Every Xbox 360 game has optional installation. Texture maps are the same on each version.
texture maps arent. Ps3 has superior texture maps, this is easily seen in previously released screenshots (think it was by digital foundry if it helps)
Game resolution and the resolution of the texture maps used within a game are different. Both games uses the same texture maps. Square Enix didn't have to use lower resolution texture maps for Xbox 360.
Getting disagrees? Weren't the same texture resources were used? Output resolution is gimped on 360 version. (the lower final resolution obviously means the textures won't look as nice on screen...)
texture maps arent the same.. the proof is screen shots.. just look at ground textures in every screenshot.. I found out that SE used lower res textures for ground in 360 version because its not that important (for them I think) and even SQUARE-ENIX said itself that they will use lower textures in FF13 360 version in non-important areas and we wont notice them..I dont remember when or where they said that..
Im talking about the higher resolution texture maps on the ps3 version of FFXIII which, as I said before, is illustrated clearly in the screenshot comparison between both ports of the game. Shame FFXIII doesnt use MLAA (on the ps3 version of course, the 360 version needs it most, but this is impossible to implement on 360)
Come on, did you guys seriously watch the video? I can't see a difference there You can say its technically 567p or whatever it is all you want But when crunch comes to crunch, you dont notice any difference, and if your a real hardcore JRPG fan like most of the FF13 players will be, disk swapping wont bother you one bit because JRPG players have been doing it for years. Time to grow up and breath in reality guys.
Watch it in HD, silly bot. It's clearly obvious once you watch it in HD.
Meh. Both look fine to me. I'm sure if you downloaded it or watched it on a HDTV you could see more difference, but no big deal. It's nothing really game changing. I don't think the graphics would be the decider for choosing which copy I wanted. It would be whether I care about switching discs, trophies/achievements, etc.
look at the difference myself if I wanted to. I love gametrailers and a lotta websites and but I trust only...ME. Thanks
as I said in another compare article.. for those who own both consoles...check your bud list for each....I had about 8 playing FF on my PSN and 1 on Live...the numbers will only grow more toward the PS3 when gaming hits prime time later or at worse stay the same
yeah i find people who play online more have a 360 and people who play singleplayer games have a ps3. 360=online gamers ps3=offline gamers
^ so not true with my budlists....more are playing BadCompany on the PS3 this past week.
i bet the xbox has more playing online alot more. even still to this day halo 3 has more people playing it, than the ps3 best online game. i think even halo 2 has lol
when i went home i noticed something weird.Did i just give the xbox360 a sale lol since they gave it to me over the counter i didn't notice. http://i44.tinypic.com/ddcq... and yeah Ps3 version is better so stop with the damage control lol.
doubt MS had anything to do with that, but still, that's funny if it does lead to the xbox version getting more sales :)
That's funny. I think sales get tracked through the wholesalers and publishers though, not retailers.
thats how pwnage the ps3 is it took over the xbox360's copy of FF
We all know the PS3 version is better, move on.
If you get FF13 on 360 it's ether because you don't have a PS3 or your the biggest idiot in the world.
360 version looks fine (housemate has it) but ps3 version deffo looks better. both versions look amazing but when i play the ps3 version i seriously think this is 1 of the best looking games out there, up there with uncharted 2 imo. i mean yes the cutscenes are cgi, but seriously, they're as good as animated films, as good as advent children. basiclly it's a gorgeos game and i'm really getting into it now. bottom line is if u own a ps3 get it, if you own a 360 get it, if u own both (like me) get it for ps3
I was actually shocked at how good the in gameplay graphics were. I know Uncharted 2 is doing a lot more, but the character models look really amazing in FF13! I left the camera on Vanille and did some messaging back and forth. I read some history in the menu and when I came back, I was blown away all over again!
Look at the crazy slowdown in the open field bit. (360 version)
how the HELL are you going to see the difference between a 720p game and a 576p game when the video comparing them is like 500p?
