360 Vs. PS3: Which Console Offers The Most HD Gaming?

Ironstar: "Our very own James 'Wip3out7' discusses the true resolutions of "HD" titles released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Wip3ou7 reveals and categorizes the actual resolutions of a test bed of over 400 games released across the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles."

Even 360 exclusives end up being 540p or 576p. lol

ps3 is the future and the future is ps3

The PS3 is the clear winner...FACT. However, I question why the 360 is being set up to fail in this article? EVERYONE(N4G community) knows that the PS3 has more HD gaming, yet Ironstar decides to make a fanboy article to get hits.

Watevs, fanboys will be fanboys...already we have Obama talking about online gaming despite the fact that it has nothing to do with the article...OH N4G, when will u learn?

Icyhot3030d ago

The really worrying part is that we are nearly half way through 2010 and the 360 has had 3 major Sub-HD releases including FF13, SC:C and Alan Wake. I know all you will jump on me and say res doesn't make a game great looking, but still just ask yourself what would you prefer, a 540P game or a 720P game.

I still wonder why the hell MS took off the restriction in the first place.

badz1493030d ago

he includes GT5: Prologue as 1920x1080 = full HD game! last time I checked, it's 1280x1080! plus, this is not even a good comparison! more like he only compares games he played!

young juice3030d ago

true words my friend, true words.

i think there was a 360 game announced a few months ago that was "1080p". but the graphics were mediocre.

HolyOrangeCows3030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

Developers/Publishers that spend more time and money on marketing than the creation of the game (Eg Activision, Bungie, EA, with Call of Duty, Halo, Madden, etc) are the 360's best friend. Pump out an under-optimized game that's basically an extension of the last installment, market it until kids program their brains to take it up like crack, collect fees, repeat.

Listen to his list of sub-HD games (for both consoles), then listen to the list of 1080p games. The sub-HD's are FAR superior in overall quality. There may be a few good 1080p games, but they can't compare to the sheer number of high quality, sub-HD games.

Also, nless native 720p games are considered, the question in the title cannot be answered in this video.

The video only discusses sub-HD (less than 720p), over-720p, & 1080p. He fails to list the number of native 720p games - which is, by definition, high definition.

evilmonkey5013030d ago

Actually 1280x1080 is an actual anamorphic high definition resolution.
Its weird, but its still hd. The ps3 converts it into 720p then upscales it into 1920x1080. This looks MUCH better than doing a game in 720p.

blackmagic3030d ago

Is it me or was the lists of sub 720p games loaded with many proven hits and exclusives while the lists of over 720p games was loaded with shovelware and mini-games? boogey bunnies? Sudoku? come on. Give me metal gear, halo, call of duty, etc, etc any day.

720p is clearly the sweet spot for both consoles with some notable sub 720p exceptions.

badz1493030d ago

if you watch the vid he said 1920x1080 not 1080p! - which is not true for GT5:P! I know some games use unorthodox resolution like GT5:P(1280x1080) and MGS4(1024x768), you can't call them 1080p or 720p although they are displayed at those resolution on tv due to to the console! 720p = 1280x720 & 1080p = 1920x1080 period!

commodore643030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

... I had to laugh at this guy!

according to him, the total number of games (on 360, in any resolution) is 43+5+5= 53.
according to him, the total number of games (on ps3, in any resolution) is 50+11+32=93

Now, correct me if I am wrong, but the total number of games on both consoles is 300+, isn't it?

Anyway, after I finished laughing at this (oh-so-slight) oversight, I realised that this guy hadn't even bothered to use the same sample size for both consoles, on which to base his comparison.
SO then, I had to laugh at him once more.
Dear oh dear oh dear.
It's laughable, but at the same time, this stupidity made me want to cry.
Surely ps3 fanboys can do better?

Has Video game journalism sunk to a new low?
Or is this guy handicapped?

Or both?

Wip3ou73030d ago (Edited 3029d ago )

I would like to note for those of you completely freaking out over this video... The test bed for the systems were roughly equal size at over 200 games per system. The reason the 360 had less total games listed at the end then the PS3 did is because the 360 had less games out of the 200+ that were tested that fell into those catagories. Also, for the 1080p catagory, I clearly stated "Games with a maximum resolution of 1920x1080" which one of you said gran turismo does not do. Gran Turismo DOES INDEED have parts of the game which run in true 1080p while other parts run slightly lower. This still qualifies it as a game with a maximum native resolution of 1920x1080.

Hill_billy3029d ago

Yes and there is a reason for it. There is a market for such lowly journalism and that market is the scourge of all gaming, the fanboys. Without fanboys to feed, you would never see such dribble come from either side of the fence. Xbox articles are just as bad as Sony articles when they are written to fuel the fanboy wars.

IMHO this simply indicates how resolution is not as important as it was said to be and that great games come from both camps and that in many cases, 1080p games are just low poly games and the 720 and sub-HD games are just the opposite.

ProjectVulcan3029d ago (Edited 3029d ago )

The consoles dont do 1920 x 1080 all that well, even from the day they were launched it was pretty clear to most Pc gamers out there that full HD was beyond reach realistically for most games running on these machines. Developers were always going to aim low with resolution knowing that their game will probably look better in press shots and such even though on a full HD screen it wouldnt necessarily look better than a native full HD title. 360's upscaling abilities signalled microsoft's intentions, clearly, it was only ever 1280 x 720.

However that doesnt stop some developers having a go, arguing that GT wont be full HD is mostly beside the point when you realise that 1280 x 1080 is still a not insignificant 50 percent MORE resolution than every 1280 x 720 game out there. Wipeout too, arguing that its dynamic framebuffer means it isnt full HD, but the MINIMUM it ever runs is the aforementioned 1280 x 1080 anyway! The human eye cant detect rapid frame to frame resolution changes well at all (example: you try spotting the differences between any two photos given just a few milliseconds to view them!!!) but sees slowdown quite easily, its how the eye has evolved. This is why i consider wipeout HD to be an absolute work of genius, to the human eye its as good as 1920 x 1080/60FPS, practically undetectable to anyone with vision inferior to a pigeon......I.e all of you reading this

im on fire! help me tom cruise ps3 is better!!!!

mikeslemonade3030d ago

Unfortunately most of the games were multiplatform shovelware which don't matter to the hardcore gamer.

ape0073030d ago (Edited 3030d ago )

gta IV?


ps3 gets the upper hand in arcade games, other than that 720p is the sweetspot in big games in this generation

starvinbull3029d ago (Edited 3029d ago )

PS3 has the best looking game this generation. Fact!

PS3 has more HD games and more games at a the highest console HD resolution. Fact!

360 exclusives often don't run at 720p. PS3 exclusives are lambasted for not running at 1080p.

If your comment is about graphics overall, PS3 wins. If your comment is about the graphics of the biggest exclusive games, guess what? PS3 still wins.

Don't want to come across as a fanboy but until Halo Reach comes out these graphics debates are just pointless.
