This is getting beat to death now.
As it should...as gamers, it is our job as a community to bring up these topics so developers can address these issues. And as hardcore gamers, why should we expect anything less than the best?
7 of the same article on ONE gaming news site. Hell maybe if there was something different in each article, but they are pretty much the same thing reworded and restructured.
As humans, we need to realize what these are. Only games. And the difference is almost nothing. The only people who would notice these differences are the people that care too much. Those people aren't gamers. A 'gamer' would be too busy enoying the game to be worried about something that 'looks a little blurrier' on a different console.
i agree good post. I game for the enjoyment i understand wanting the best product but when the difference are this small and the general whole the core of the game is untouched etc i see this as a disservice to gamers on both sides sure i understand your reasoning but in the end if your enjoyment is cut in 1/2 because of a blurry texture and not the core game play then i see that as a problem with the gamer not the devs. I mean ive been gaming since card machines so i have a little different taste in my mouth to say someone who started with Xbox 1 and ps2. I will not try to understand them as much as ill just let them go maybe its a generational thing i don't know. You want to be happy in life lower your expectations
Wow, the hypocrisy of some people is outrageous. This routine is getting old. Whenever a multiplat looks better on the 360 certain fanboys try to convince themselves that the differences are "almost nothing", but then these same fanboys turn around and try to claim that there is a huge difference between PS3 exclusives and 360 exclusives. Absurd! I have played Alan Wake and Uncharted 2 and although they look very different I honestly can't really say which one I enjoy more on a visual level. They both look so good that I become totally immersed in them and if one looks better than the other it is so subjective and subtle that I can't really decide. Nevertheless, we continue to have people playing this game that PS3 exclusives are supposedly vastly better than 360 exclusives. But when one version of a multiplatform game has lower resolution, worse aliasing, and missing effects or objects we are supposed to pretend that the difference is so small as to be insignificant.
@C64 - how nice you actually pick the games that suit your argument what about dragon age annd FF XIII, and trust me the differences on FF XIII version was far bigger but certain fanboys spun it and said they could not tell the difference so 720p versus 540p yeah the xbox really is better than ps3/ sarcasm you do realise all of the games you listed was not maximised towards using the SPU's which is why the games was not as good on PS3, look at FF XIII it was maximsed to use the SPU's it had 720p and 30fps, the x360 version 540p ad actually sunk to as low as 20fps on grand pulse (on a lower resolution) which tells me x360 is actually much weaker
lol @ commodore PS3 doesn't measure up? If it were for these idiotic articles you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between multi-plats. These articles are written so fanboys like you can use them to spout your dribble that you can't even see with the naked eye. I'll enjoy playing RDR on my PS3. You play it on your 360 and you try to convince yourself that you are playing the better version. I will continue to laugh at your fearful shortcomings.
It's not there yet, what only about 3 articles including this one? The average 360 sub-HD article gets 10 to 15 articles. I do think this site should be banned from N4G though their doctored or strategic cherry picking tactics to make each version seem on par as much as possible is wrong. videogamezone has been caught switching pics
If that's the case, then I think we're 14 articles short on the Xbox 360 version of Split/Second. But if you're referring to that ridiculous barrage of articles about Alan Wake, that game was supposed to "show the true power of the 360", "blow Uncharted 2 out of the water" and kick start a "new era in game engines for the 360". So yeah, it had it coming. But back on topic, RDR looks better on 360 just like GTA4. End of story! Features, gameplay and the experience itself are exactly the same across both systems. This is not another Bayonetta.
hahaha i was just about to say the same thing ^_^ this is being beat to death worse than [insert long running franchise that should've been killed off years ago]
Don't blame me I reported it as Lame.
I agree with FlipMode, it's overkill. Besides, why are we surprised? The 360 version of games are usually a little sharper while the PS3 version tend to be a tad blurrier. If you look at past games, that's just usually the way it goes.
@FragGen - No need to hate either version, the differences are minimal. This will end up being one of the defining games of this gen.
I'm zooming in on these and looking at the differences and I'm trying to make myself hate the PS3 version and think it "sucks" but I can't because the game is friggin awesome. Am I doing something wrong?
yes look at the missing grass and rocks
this horse has been beaten to death, then raise back to life with black magic, then beaten to death again in exactly the same way, then beaten to death some more and more...
The only thing worse than beating a dead horse is betting on one.
because it isnt like you didnt know it was coming.....again.
RIGHT Iv had enough of this.... ive made my decision.. Im buying the PS3 version, and not going to look at a single more comparison as they are driving me mad!!!!! End of!
First the game runs at 720p on the PS3 that is not sub-hd, that is HD. Second the screen shots if anyone cares to view them show the game looks pretty much the same on both systems. Look at the image of him shooting at the cooking pot on the PS3 image you can clearly make out 3 different people in the background, but can't even tell if there are people in the 360 version. Oh, and PS3 version special edition no extra charge.
Ok up close rt now on my PC monitor the difference is noticeable. However, when move back to 4 ft away, its kinda hard to tell especially if its in motion.
That's what i was thinking. Yesterday looking at them zoomed in i was starting to get a headache looking at the ps3 one. it is a good thing im not going to be sitting 2 inches from my tv. It doesnt look bad from a normal viewing distance (at least the screenshots on the comp, i havent rented it yet for my ps3).
Everybody already knows. Technically, 360's is better: more resolution, better draw-distance, more grass. PS3 is blurry but shows prettier color palette, at least in these shots. Both look equally beautiful. Get any version and enjoy.
Damn... This comment SEEMS to start as a pure trolling attempt but then you realize it's actually very well said after you've read it all. :)
The PS3 hAs flexed it's GRAPHICAL muscles over and over so why are fanboys nitpicking multis is this all they have left to do now?
I love how PS3 fanboys think the PS3 is sooo superior. If you look at these shots, the PS3 pics colors are so vibrant that they look fake. The 360 version looks the part. Both look good, the 360 version just looks better. Why do the PS3 fanboys have to hate when they lose a battle, and then try to rub it in when they win? PS3 = a glorified bluray player
idk whose making these comparissons. its like they switched the ps3/360 screens we saw in previous comparissons. the ps3 version look a little better in here
720p<660p END OF THE STATEMENT!!!!
That doesn't mean anything, except the sharpness. Resolution means SHARPNESS, it doesn't mean lush colors and such. Idiot.
That is why PS3 fanboys post screenshot comparisons articles from videogamezone @snake3 Alan Wake is (4xAA) and has vastly superior graphics to RDR(360, 2XAA) I can't wait for Eurogamer and Lense Of Truth to put this to rest and kill any attempts to mislead the public in a damage control effort. I don't think videogamezone's trickery can convince 99% of the industry that sees and excepts the truth.
they upped the brightness on the ps3 shots and lowered it on the 360 shots . zoom in the screenshots (gameplay) and you see a massive difference . looks like the 360 is 1080p and the ps3 version is 480p . its that bad . blame rockstar or ps3 or whatever!!!
My my...isn't this that site that posted the MW2 pics and reversed the labels? uh ohhhhh
well, i pick the version with exclusive content
with ALAN WAKE 540p? Disbarred from GOTY nominees? Yeah fck it. From now on every article on RDR non noticable differences i will reply with... ALAN WAKE 540p /5 Years /8.0 GAME.
holy shit your down to one bubble already?
i had to give u a bubble ha ha
Remedy (about 30 to 40 employees), new open-world game engine, and a excellent game, which is new IP... 5 years? Pretty good I say. And on topic, I don't get it. If the resolution is 660, 720, 540 ... Really, does it matter if the game looks good. I doubt anyone playing the X0 version of FF XIII, or PS3 version of RDR hated the game becouse of the resolution. "I won't buy X game becouse it's not 720p, I hate you (developer here)! I'ma gona never buy your game again!", all thinking that way should grow up, and enjoy the games these people make for them with hard work.
....................... . The PS3 screens seem to have more color and better lighting. . .......................
Aliasing is definitely worse on the 360, but has sharper textures. http://img100.imageshack.us... Look at the railing on the boat.
And it beats a lot of x360 720p games in gfx department.
Too bad the game sucked.
thats why it got game of the year sevral times.
Wasn't even a game.. was more a movie.
Its your boy Hip Hop gdblose. Looking and comparing these screenshots are just starting to get old now. Yo! Yo! Check It...Huhhh Huhhh... Yo! Yo!... You should get the version that pleases you period. Enough already!!!
Yo, gdblose, that's one tasty lookin' burger!
Yo...Yo...Thanks Bro! Got a small Diet Coke to with It. Bubbles for you.
I like how someone disagreed with me about expressing my appreciation for giant hamburgers. WTF?! HAHAHA! Thanks for the bubb btw, gdblose. Small diet coke? Were they trying to choke the crap out of you? You need a bigger drink to wash that monster down.
omg, can't wait till this gets in the mail this is the opnly comparison were i have seen PS3 looking better, guess the only way is to play to see what it really looks like
Beating a dead horse. :/
worst port ever there is no way to buy it
No, the worst port ever this gen goes to Bayonetta and then The Orange Box. I don't see why you're so pissed. The game isn't unplayable, and you should be happy it came to your console. Wii owners have been getting the shaft.
The PS3 version certainly looks "blurrier" BUT, looking at all these picture comparisons, i don't think it looks worse than the 360 version in any way! Just blurrier/smoother (call it what you want) up close. And i personally think the PS3 one runs smooth enough considering the size. I haven't played the 360 one but apparently the performance is a bit smoother from what i read. But keep in mind the latest GTAIV update noticeably improved the frame rate on the PS3 version. Oh, and the grass thing, I would guess it's placed out randomly so it's hard to compare the amount difference.. Not that it really matters when you actually play the game.. You're not gonna go; "hmmm.. sure would be nice with a little bit more grass around here" when you're riding around on your horse exploring the plains..
When the 360 version of a game has issues the last thing that's blamed is the hardware, and the first if the PS3 version has them. Why is it never coding?
Where is it? I challenge anyone on here to show me concrete evidence and I will gladly conceded and admit defeat in this debate/argument, honestly I will. Because from what I can see, NONE of the online reviews that I've read of Red Dead Redemption from most of the main gaming websites had said anything bad about the PS3 version. IGN, Gamespot etc, not one of them have said anything bad regarding the PS3 copy. Read them yourself if you don't believe me and you will see it's a fact. So please help me and anyone else out here by providing some real, concrete and undisputed facts that say the PS3 version is 640p, sub-HD. Go on, I dare you. And by concrete evidence, I do not mean those bunch of no-life, supereme geeks from NeoGaf that sit in front of HD TVs all day counting pixels and comparing them to each other to determine what console has the best graphics on a multiplatform game. And I'm not talking about simple hearsay or rumours either. I'm talking about providing me with an official quote or statement from the actual makers of the game (Rockstar) that actually says the PS3 version is sub-HD at 640p. Just like when Remedy offcially stated that Alan Wake was not 720p. I wanna see evidence of similar nature from Rockstar - they would be the best people to know, they made the damn game. If no one can do this, then I as far as I'm concerned Red Dead Redemption on the PS3 is a native 720p game if it officially says so on the back of the game's box. I will also see how good it looks on the PS3 for myself when I buy the game on this coming Saturday, May 21st (UK release). I will see what the fuss is about all for myself then. Who can do this? Go on, lets see what you got! EDIT: Whats with the disagrees? Why not show and prove, rather than disagree with me? I'm not asking you to agree with me, I'm asking you to show me concrete evidence, it's a simple instruction - can you not do that at least? Before disagreeing? Damn, some people got no sense.
the proof is on the screenshots they are so blurry i dont know if even is 640p and not 576p
I said concrete evidence, like an official statement or quote from Rockstar saying that the PS3 version of Red Dead Redemption is sub-HD in 640p. Thats what I wanna see. I asked for that kind of evidence. I don't want your personal opinions or online screen comparison shots that are not to be totally trusted. I want concrete, undisputed evidence like I've stated above.
"so" blurry, its honestly not bad atall. i do like how the colors look better on ps3 :]
I really don't care about this stupid comparasions, and in my honest oppinion, REAL gamers don't care too! This is just getting ridiculous, at the point to say the PS3 is like unplayable, because it's not HD and the graphics sucks, because the version has a MINIMAL difference of Xbox 360 one...it's more blurry, it's more sharp, it has more colour, it has more AA, it's smoother...What a hell! Please guys get a life!
Seriously the games problem is not the 640 rez but the QAA. I'm not really sure why Rockstar has it on at all. Hurts the image when looking at ss. I've seen the game today on the PS3 and it does not look like that on Tv, weird. Think Alan wake looks better in motion as well tbh. Depends on tv, settings etc. But Rockstar do yourselves a favour and turn off the blur.
The ps3 version looks better when I seen the first pic I assumed the 360 was the top and ps3 on bottom until I read the caption. I dont see any evidence that ps3 looks worse than 360 here.
The colors definitely look better on the PS3 version but some of the textures are sharper on the 360. But for me, still playing on an SDTV, I go for the content.
From what I see the PS3 version looks better. Did they mix up the images?
you must be blind mate... I'm getting this on PS3 but I'm disappointed in this particular comparison. When all's said and done though- I think GTAIV looks great on PS3, its still a game I regualarly play, so I aint worried RDR will look crap, because face it- it will be better than GTAIV which for an open world game is the beez kneez
you must be blind. look at the colors on the ps3, they look better. 360 looks faded
the light effects are better on ps3...but looks smoother on 360
The time of day its different of cource it will look different.
yet a lot of you bashed it, said it was fail, said we dont need all that console power, or new discs formats. You guys even said we dont need the best games and innovative games and different genres. Its our job to support and back sony so that M$ will get off its butt and stop cheating gamers. A lot of you arent doing your job becuase you dont support the games. You support cross game chatting and haveing little kids and racist screaming in your ear the stuff thats said on youtube comments. You all chose some reality tv x360 crap and said forget you to games that are freaking master pieces that are on the ps3.
Just report these stupid posters when they do these bogus comparisons!!!
Is FF13 playable on the 360? Is RDR playable on the PS3? That's all that matters. Move on!
