According to CodeMasters, DiRT for PS3 is more complete on the PS3, demo coming soon. check out the Video.
I hope it looks better and runs better. Give any game developer over a couple more months to polish a game and this will happen. This is saying nothing to the difference of the Xbox 360 or PS3. EDIT- More Time = More Polishing It doesn't take a rocket scientist
PS3 had been getting some jacked up ports in the past. I just hope it continues to get some pluses just like VF did for 360. I think it makes sense to improve a game after it releases late for a console as it would improve sales.
Actually most of the games that have arrived later on the PS3 suffered in quality with the exception of Oblivion & most recently R6V. Hearing that the framerate is improved for the PS3 version is the main plus in this case.
Saying RB6 look sbetter on PS3. It doesn't. I have played both.
RB6 looks the same on the PS3 as the 360 when played at 720P. 1080i on the PS3 looks bad, even the text is blurry. But in 720p the text and graphics are very clear.
Because it had more devtime, which is good Those ugly blureffects (or "bloom-effects") on the 360 were removed (though the 1080i wil bring the blur back:D) which is a big plus If DiRT wasn't looking better on PS3 despite the extra devtime I would never buy any game from Codemasters again...
... Try to read some game engine book to know how it work before writing about it. PS3's is better and newer technology. Will not only be better on DIRT, lot others already are and soon you will get more reasons to trash your 360. Don't cry.
it doesnt matter anyways, sega is the only 3rd party developer that knows how to make kick @ss graphics on any system. Codemasters has always made sh1tty graphics on the xbox systems. they suck
Added dev time is always a plus, but if you watched the video, he states that things like uncompressed 7.1 surround sound were ONLY ACHIEVABLE on the PS3 -the 360 can't produce high-quality surround sound like that. Get used to it, within a year, the 360 will be getting the ports and all the best editions of games will be coming out on PS3.
...the best bit of information in that video. They have support for the G35 as well as the Driving Force Pro & Pro 2 steering wheels. Sick!
good to hear all this positive stuff about ps3 these days. everything will be fine so we all can be friends .. 360 and ps3 .. and Wii.
But you gotta admit. Some of you 360 guys do it to yourselves.
Just as the PS3 folks do... Seems like the only decent ones on this site are the Wii people.. haha
the 360 is in a complete tailspin right now. every minute theres like more bad news.
I completed DiRT a few weeks ago on my Xbox 360 so why would I buy it on PS3 and play it again? Seriously Codemasters, you should have just released the game on time, not 3 months later.
I'll buy it for my PS3 since I don't have it for my 360
sajj316, here is another example, I want Burnout for my PS3,because I know its going to much better on it than 360,so I dont want Burnout PS3 to ship much later than the 360 version. It will be much better if developers release their titles simultaneously so we can choose the best. Dirt is going to better on PS3, but Tommie had no idea of it, he wanted to play it early so he got the 360 version and finished it, now it really doesnt matter a dime if PS3 version is better for him
not all games will look better on the 360. Sony has apparently started doing a good job at getting the tools in the hands of these devs. Devs have had over a yr with the 360 and about 8 months with the ps3 offcourse the ps3 hardware will prove tricky but as we can all see the ports are getting better. I honestly cannot believe some of you thought the 360 could overpower blu ray and cell. Stating numbers about pipelines blah blah. No matter how you see it the ps3 has excellent power, barely limited space for games, and a built in hard drive. Its only a matter of time before devs start to take advantage
due to Blu-ray diode shortages.. The devs had the kits at the same time as they did for the 360. Please get off this Cell and Blu-ray superiority trip, nobody is buying it.. I will say yes the Blu-ray can hold more space, but even that is answered with compression.
Did you ever think maybe if the devs apply that same compression to Blu-Ray then you have freakin MASSIVE games?!?! Think, xbot, think! Devs are already saying how quickly they're making full-use of Blu-Ray, and how their game would never fit on a dvd -and who wants multiple dvd's anymore? It's so last generation.
Nice interview. He says the PS3 version looks fantastic compared to the X360 version. That's good to know. Also he says the games supports 7.1 uncompressed audio. Looking damn good I must say. This has been a great week for the PS3 and from here it only will get stronger!! PS3 power starting to show :o)
i also expect haze and unreal 3 to be better on 360 due to extra time. its not rocket science. if you disagree man up and tell me why !
keep dreaming....DVD9 and an sku without a hardrive is not helping the 360. as time goes on these games will be getting bigger and bigger.
with haze thats anybody's guess but it was built from the g up on ps3. With ut3, unless they include key n mouse support and allow mods then other than graphical tweaks i cant see it being better. And then theres always updates for the first released version of any game on any format. maybe its spin from the devs because of the delays, only time will tell but the part about the uncompressed sound is something that will always be thorn in the 360,s side because of dvd9/no guaranteed hdd. As we move into hi def and surround systems these things will increase gamers immersion. Never underestimate great sound.
I didn't click disagree either... but UT3 I think only has the potential to be equal or "better" in terms of graphics...and that is if Epic and Sony still don't get the engine optimized correctly...Interviews with Epic earlier this year made comments on how impressed they were with the PS3's hardware, but that it was taking more time than they thought to perfect... but who knows...the 360 version may end up looking better...but MS still won't allow the user generated content to make it onto XBL...and anyone familiar with the UT and original Unreal series understands that that is a very bad thing...If the PS3 and PSN support this through Home, or however they claimed to do it, and MS does not...There is absolutely no way to say that the 360 version is better than the PS3, even if it looks slightly better... and who knows about Haze...They are still being wierd about the other platforms...the websites shows nothing on the PC and 360 anymore...for whatever reason... But UT3 has the potential to be the absolute best fps for consoles...bringing everything that made PC gaming like this so great...free mods...free map editing...It really suprises me that this game hasn't been getting a huge amount of attention...Even if I owned a 360, I would be all over this compared to Halo 3...This is the first thoroughbred franchise to go up against Halo on a console, aside from Quake...and aside from the Q3 on the DC, they all sucked...
well the lads on the MS side of the fence are getting a COD4 beta, not sure they're gonna be to bothered about the ps3 getting a demo of this! WHERES ARE FU*KING BETA SONY HUH?! HUH?!?!?
I have to give you credit, you are true to your name.
I'll bet M$ paid more bribe $$ to get the "free debugging", er, I mean beta testing only on 360. They waste their money on dumb stuff like that instead of fixing their console. Next will be the Viva Pinata-edition 360, and the Mass Effect 360... different on the outside, same faulty innards.
your probably right SlappyMcTaint, still, i could live with finding a few bugs to =)
OMG, the 360 is getting an ass-kicking this week. the bad news train just keeps a rollin'...
Nice, i wanted this game for my ps3 My x box v looks buggy to me
dirt hasn,t sold well its really a european game but they exspected bigger sales on the 360 so i hope there true to there word when they say this and not just looking to increase numbers it has always been big in europe on playstation
uh...I don't know if sales have slowed down considerably...but it sold extremely well its first couple of weeks...like over 500,000 or something on the 360 pretty quickly...One article said it, and Forza2 which was selling at a similar rate, were the fastest selling games since Gears...
Finally, a usefull delay afterall. Aside from Oblivion on PS3, most delays didn't add much to the game but if the frame-rate issues are solved then it will be definitly a better version. But we'll have to wait to play it to judge.
Why does everything have to become a 360 vs PS3 comparison, they both look good and have better features than last gen games so how about not worrying about whats happening on the other console...
Is Dirt as good or better then Motorstorm because due to some of the difficulty on some levels of Motorstorm I have been extreamly entertained with Motorstorm.
it lacked something that motorstorm had. i'd say if you want to play dirt it aint worth buyting. if you've got a friend that has it play it there or just rent it when it comes out. but you aint missing much. Motorstorm is still the premire and perfect offroad racing game you'll be happy to own. just think what MStorm 2 will look like OMG
yeah I have only played the PC version...and it just seems floaty and not right...it looks great, easily on par with motorstorm in parts...except for the layer manipulation, where in Motorstorm you break through the crusty dirt to nasty mud underneath...nothing has touched that yet... But motorstorm's online is far superior to Dirt's...Dirt has the equivalent of Motorstorm's recent Time attack update released a few weeks ago...where as Motorstorm lacks split screen (I don't know if the 360 version of dirt has this), but has the time attack leaderboard thing, and a true race against other people mode...which is fantastic... Motorstorm shipped not quite complete...but through the updates has turned into one of the best arcade racing games on consoles right now...still...and next month they will finally release the new track and some new skins I guess...which to some might be nice...
Excited about the ps3 getting a better version of a 2 month old game? It still hasn't been released yet. Do you expect them to say...this game looks worst compared to the 360 version. They are selling a port...they have to spin it
Your seeing things clearly
I don't really care about this either, It's taking longer so it should look better and I already have it on Xbox, but why not just give credit where credit is due and let it slide. Theres no reason to downplay this unless you're THAT insecure but I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt.
Why is everyone... Excited about the 360 getting a better version of a 6 month old game? It still hasn't been released yet. Do you expect them to say...this game looks worst compared to the PS3 version. They are selling a port...they have to spin it All the 360 fanboys are exited for some blurriness and online content. As stated by gamepro the 360 version of VF5 doesnt look any better than the PS3 version and yet every fanboy is using it as an example. Worst is that when VF5 was only anounced to come for the PS3 they said, believe and kill, because DOA 4 lokked way better. LOL fanboys. For Tommy wathever: I agree with you Im not going to buy VF5 again for my 360 when the PS3 version is 6 months older and the only things the 360 version add ( sincerely anybody truly knows) is a more blurrier image!. Fanatics play fair for both sides or eat your words!!!!!!! BTW: KILLZONE 2 LOOKS AMAZING!!!
First of all, I am an audiophile, so besides ps3 having SACD and blu-ray support, all of these games(this and killzone specifically), having uncompressed 7.1 surround, (the uncompressed being really appealing--i.e. better qual than dolby digital or DTS) is really pushing my buttons. I'm sure 99 percent of xbox people dont care about that, but that's just a different perspective I guess. You're right that these ports for ps3 have not been great, but if they come out later they do tend to get a lot better, such as oblivion. After E3 though, I think we are starting to see that the best quality games of all systems are ps3 non ports, Ie games developed first for the Ps3. Also, don't you think that it is a little ironic that you have a ken logo as your avatar and super street fight II HD is coming out for Ps3? you might want to reconsider you're loyalties...
Warhawk beta was the first game I have played that had 7.1 uncompressed TrueHD sound...and holy crap...That is the single place where absolutely no other video game device can even come close to the PS3...A TOW missle slowly burning from behind, over your head, and then wrecking the other teams base in 7.1 surround sound is one of the coolest things I have ever heard in a video game...
Codemasters thought they would sell bucket loads on the 360, they didn't.so, now they gotta hype it for PS3,i'm not saying it won't look better or anything like that,i'm just saying the main reason Codemasters are saying this is to get someone to buy a game they thought would sell itself, but didn't.
I wasnt too impressed by Dirt in the first place. I dont think a game like Dirt even scratches the surface of what 360 or PS3 can do.
I own a PS3 and 2 Xbox 360s (Premium & Elite) and there is little doubt in my mind that the PS3 is more powerful. But.. the development community has had more time with the 360 and right now, they are making games that are as good, if not better, for the 360. This will change, probably next year, as the developers get going on PS3. You don’t need to be the most powerful to win the console war, but you do have to offer the best value.
everyone should expect the PS3 VERSION of Codemasters games to be better,Chris Deering is now chairman of Codemasters- the previous Head of SCEE for(10 years), this guy was head of PlayStation Europe since the PS1- he believes in Sony and will make sure games for Sony console are better than competition. "PS3 will be looked back upon ten years from now as a fabulous, life-changing invention..." (Chris Deering, July 9th 2007 article) http://www.gamesindustry.bi...
"8 - PS3 version looks fantastic compared to the X360 version Nice interview. He says the PS3 version looks fantastic compared to the X360 version. That's good to know. Also he says the games supports 7.1 uncompressed audio. Looking damn good I must say." Yes we have ears so we did hear that part; I have never heard anything above 5.1 so cannot comment on the 7.1 sound (any good?), with regards to the game being better on PS3 well I have played it a few times and I think it is a nice pick up and play racer but agree it is missing somthing, maybe worth a rent? it looks nice but nothing mind blowing. PGR4 is coming so why would we worry. Besides the future is looking good for both consoles now, Xbox-360 is going to have a great 2 years, then I think the PS3 will have it's time with Xbox-360 holding strong. I wont even go into the following generation because I don't know what will happen, besides I will be 40 by then lol so I better enjoy this one.
"Ken Kutaragi may have been the father of PlayStation, but when it came to making the console a success in Europe Chris Deering was the big daddy. It was he who founded Sony Computer Entertainment Europe in 1995, and who went on to ensure not only PS1's success but that of its successor." http://www.gamesindustry.bi...
Well I think this is a very good thing overall. I mean, this kind of thing should be the rule, not the exception. It shouldnt be a news story when a system that is more powerful and more expensive makes a game look/play better. Last gen it was no question that the Xbox version of most games looked/played better than the PS2 version. Hopefully this will become a trend because Sony needs thier prospective customers to see a difference in the experience between PS3/360 otherwise there is no reason to shell out the extra change.
Chris Deering is a fanboy lol. Just bring on Rallysport challenge and Sega Rally.
1.) Sony helped Codemasters DEVELOP the engine, so if it DOESN'T look/play better, they'd be crucified for it. That's the ONLY reason there was a delay. 2.) After renting this game, I can honestly say I don't care anyway. I spent 4-5 hours with the SP, and was ready to jump on LIVE and kick up some dust. When I realized CM had been lazy and left out head-2-head racing ALTOGETHER, I took the game back and exchanged it for The Darkness. Unless they've added online to the PS3 version...which I highly doubt...I don't give a rat's ass about the other "improvements". BRING ME TOCA 4, DAMMIT!
now we should begin 2 c some better ports
games get delayed they are adjusted and fixed for the specific console. Lets wait and see if it delivers guyz =)
Hardly a surprise considering Codemasters' Neon is first and foremost a PS3 engine. http://www.developmag.com/n...
DiRT (at least for 360) is a good racing game but it wasn't quite amazing. And yeah, especially compared to Forza 2 (and probably because of Forza 2), DiRT didn't do so well in sales.
Well it should be better. Developers had more time to work on it and to fix and change a few things based on the response they got from the gaming community from the released of the xbox 360 version. Just like it happened with Sega's Virtual Fighter... the xbox 360 version will be better... Samething here... anybody that implies that hardware is the reason this game will be better on the PS3 because of hardware.. is an idiot.
people boast about hardware specs(making it seem impossible on any other platform) but when it comes out looking better, the excuse is it had a delay.
and when it comes out on the Wii in a year, it will be better than both the PS3 and 360?
sony deserves the positive media.
Looks like i will be getting this for PS3.
While this is good news, I doubt Dirt will compete well with Motorstorm...that's enough off-road driving for me, I don't think I need 2 dirt games
I see a trend happening when it comes to 3rd party games when it comes to games not being released during the same time. Now that 3rd party developers are getting on the same page and learning the inner of the Playstation 3 as much as they know the xbox 360 here is what to expect: Games released at the sametime will be nearly Identical with the exception of little stupid things like.. one looks darker than the other. And ofcourse maybe you will see xbox live specific features on the xbox 360 version or Sixaxis features for the PS3 version. For games released first on one of the consoles... don't be surprise if the console getting the same game at a later time get more features or polished game... They developer will have more time to work on the game.. and it's on their best interest to show people that this game is not just a port. Sometimes developers want people owning mutliple consoles to be potential buyers even if they already purchased the game for the othe console already. And example of this is Gears for the PC... Some people that own the XBox 360 may even buy the PC version. So, when games like UT are released on november for the PS3 and then later for the xbox 360... don't think it's because of hardware that the xbox 360 have more features or look better... It was because of the points I made. Since I am going to have both a PS3 and an xbox 360... when it comes to 3rd party games that are not exclusives... I will most likely weait for the version that will come at a later time... If you only have one console.. then duhhh get the one for the console you have... it's a given... If you own both consoles and you don't mind waiting or have other games to play... then wait for the better version.... I would like to point out that there are 2 main reason why a game may be released on one console before another... Need more time - when this happends... the console getting the game later does not necessarity means they will be getting the better version... since the game are defined already.. and no new features are added... We've have seing these in some XBox 360 games ported to the PS3 where no new features are added. Timed Exclusive - This is good and bad... good that you get to experience the game before the other people... but bad because you will get less than those waiting... it's the nature of things... Since both games were probably developed at the sametime but one of them is put on hold for exclusivity reasons... developers have the oportunity to put more time on a game that it's already considered complete... developers get user input and get to fix bugs and suggestions that gamers that already purchased the game have. Also developers try to add features hoping that a fan that already bough the game for the... xbox 360 may be a potential buyer of the PS3 version if they own both consoles if they add new content or levels...
holy smokes, they will include uncompressed sound. Nice. taking advantage of blu-ray. Also, the engine was optimized for the PS3 thanks to sony so there's no question it will be superior to any other version. The guy said it himself.
Thats a clincher for me! I never realised it was officially FULLY useable on the PS3!! Six speed Gear shifting and a clutch! If GT5 Prologue uses the G25 wheel (to its full potential, Not just backwards compat with the Driving force) which I fully expect, then i'm going out to buy one of those crazy wheels!
Codemasters said your crapbox can't handle 5.1 sound & better graphics.
Just wow. The fanboyism runs deep with this one.
It doesen't matter which system you like really. If your talking specs, basically its like this. The cell&rsx beat the [email protected] to a pulp. Ever Played dirt on the pc. Everyone moaning who has a 7800gtx, 1950xt etc. That it runs too slowly. The game demands a hefty processor, dual core,quad core, just as crysis will need to run it properly. Yes it a fact, Dual core is needed now. The Cell inside the ps3 is complex thus needs more time, its got nothing to do with polish. xbox360 is easier to program for and basically you can get everything out the system pretty quickly. Gears of War uses 3cores, not 1. As some idiots think. Its got nothing to do with fanboyism. Its a plain and simple fact, that cell is a radical new processor, which is paving the way for alot more on screen at one time. Back to DIRT. My friend has a 8800gts 640mb. Dual core and 4gb ram. Top notch only higher is gtx,and ultra. That is the kinda of system you'll need to play dirt full up, and smoothly. If you don't believe me, try the dirt demo.
Doc, Let me get this. You paid $200 bucks for slighty better graphics on a game no one cares about? Why don't you mention R6V (which all outlets agreed looks better on 360), or other relevant games. Call it crapbox if you want, but 360 outsells PS3 2:1. This odes little in terms of effects etc. With your extra $200 I could almos get a Wii. Period.
