Xbox 360 vs. PS3 Red Dead Redemption comparison from GameTrailers.com
Comparison shows the PS3's inferior texture and native resolution as well as some missing shadowing and objects in the game world.
ha ha who cares we still have about 20 other studios that can do 720 or up. If the game is fun and your interested in it. Buy it. It's that simple.
No more comparisons, please. Save the space for actual news and articles!
We still have LOT and Digital Foundry comparison left.. Sigh, 2 more threads where fanboys will fight like cats and dogs.
i got it on the PS3 its not as bad as everyone thinks it maybe worse than the xbox but it still looks very good what i hate is they turned red dead into another GTA clone the first red dead was liner, arcady , and you could play with more that one character and there was crap load of multiplayer characters and i really loved the first one but over all the game is great
i know i definitely agree with you, while i havnt played the game yet, it still looks good, but its just not the same as the original to be called a sequel, its an entirely different game all together, the problem with calling redemption grand theft auto though, is the fact that there is no automobiles, so they couldnt name it gta:old west or somethin like that. back on topic. saw the vid, not to impressed with the graphics for the game overall, but for comparisons sake, there is BARELY any differences. i bet that they dont have the ps3 optimized to get the best graphics either, thats why u always get that washed out look. see what people dont know is that you need to go to display settings on the ps3 and change these 3 things (turn ON cross color reduction filter, change RGB full range to FULL from LIMITED, and turn ON the super white settings) although i have a 1080p HD television, so im not sure if this applies to everyone, but it certainly should apply in comparison videos.
Yeah, it's a little depressing to have it in your face. Why aren't there shadows under the piers during the riverboat shot. argh. oh well. i look at p0rn on a laptop instead of an HD screen and it still does the job. agree about the GTA clone comment so far. i can't help thinking of GTA when i jack a wagon or horse from some dude.
@BiggCMan: Red Dead Redemption is not a sequel to Red Dead Revolver. It's more like a spiritual successor. Just like BioShock and System Shock, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus, among other games.
And I haven't noticed any major frame-rate drops, although there is quite a bit of pop-in. Definitely not bad, though.
lol the game is still a pretty ugly game even if it would've been in 720p, if I want to play a TPS with better graphics than anything on the xbox, I can play Uncharted 2 or even MGS4. So who cares about these stupid comparisons, it just proves that R* got lazy with their development, nothing else.
I will say that the alpha issues with foliage really does bother my eye at times on the PS3 version. The game looks good, but not even close to what we've come to expect from a studio like R*.
Everyone needs to know how the consoles stack up to each other, not in a bash you/me kinda way though. Also, It tells Rockstar what they need to clean up in game, even the bugs are found this way. I've already put in over 25 hrs and am only 36% through it. I'm just now on my way to mexico. I have the Xbox 360 version, My friend who has the ps3 version also found a bug with the gamestop pre order. The Assassins outfit it's not available yet b/c he can't find the Mo van barr wanted poster, he has all the other 4 items complete but the game won't produce the wanted poster and he's done now over some 20 bounty's so there are bugs in the game, many but it's still hella fun.
Is it really that bad....Playstation mag gave it a 10/10...They must of played it on a 360...looks PS2 like, like the game BULLY...those mountains....wow...I'd be upset if I paid full price for THAT.... I hope AGENT doesn't turn out like that....This and then Rockstar saying they prefer XBL over Sony....ooouucchh...not a good wk for Sony...
Every time I play this game, I notice the pop-ins and the framerate....What have you done to me N4G?
I'm too busy looking for 5 foxes, 5 skunks, and 5 raccoons to even notice the pop-in. As for framerate, my brother and I were in Blackwater (which happens to be next to the ocean). We started to acquire a bounty, and that's when 10 cops ran in. The game hit 5FPS after that so we had to jump off the buildings we were sitting on to kill ourselves so the cops would go away. Good times. I love this game regardless of the visual impairments though. I've already pumped in 2 days and 9 hours of playtime, and I'm only 50% done. I've only touched the MP four or five times now. I can't wait to get into that portion of the game.
Oh yeah the game is fun, although honestly Im quite lost as to what I have to do or why in the SP(didnt pay attention to the intro). But the MP is fun
*********Spoilarrrrrrrrrrz**** **** - - Elijah, you play a guy that was in a gang that took money from rich people and gave it to poor people (kinda) and also killed people. The gang left you to die, the government took your family and is making you kill the 3 other members of the gang so that you can get your family back.....More or less......I think.......I'm really bad at paying attention to story lines. -_- *********End of the spoilarrrrrrz*****
I've not noticed anything except in the tall tree area pop-in is horrible and its amazing how bad these comparisons make it look but when I play it looks nothing like that
Oh joys unbound. This is only the 5th comparison article we've had in the last three days. Keep fighting fanboys.
my ps3 version doesnt look that flat and colorless, i smell deseption
The 360 version doesn't look that bland either on hardware running on the a HDTV. The point is to show the differences, doesn't matter if we think the web does not do the game justice on respective consoles because no matter on the web or our TV's the deferences are still there. Hell the internet probably hides a greater difference. "I smell deseption" Yes :p 99.9% of the industry are making this up lol. Everybody knows the internet does not exactly match game software running on our hardware hooked up to our HDTV's. LOL at your conspiracy theories, the lifeless pixelated PS3 footage was faked but the 360 interwebz quality pixelated footage is an exact mirror image of the 360 version running on hardware hooked up to a HDTV.
I have finally found love, it happened late last night. She is a scrumptious black beauty with long legs and an incredible athletic toned body. She has long blonde flowing hair. Already we have formed an incredible friendship and i love the way she jumps in the air with her long legs wriggling when i am riding her. We seem to have already travelled wide and far. I have named her 'Dances with records.' She is my Warhorse that i got a free code for. I am playing on PS3. Don't be put off PS3 owners, by what you may have read over the last few days about the playstation version. While it is somewhat disappointing that the developers couldn't maintain visual parity with its xbox counterpart, it certainly does not dilute, nor take anything away from the overall experience. Get the game its fantastic and enjoy it thoroughly on whatever console you may own. Look out for me on the range, i will be the one riding the black beauty!
Comparison number 9999. So tell me, does resolution matter? Or not? Do we bash Alan Wake and RDR PS3? Or not? Tell me!
Super Mario Galaxy 2 or its not fair yet its sub HD ?? hypocrisy...
We dont bash alan wake because there is no hd version of the game. Meanwhile for rdr there is a good version of red dead with a solid frame rate, better graphics, higher resolution and an overall higher LOD , then you have the gimped ps3 version that is inferior in every single way.
who cares, the game is not a graphics based game,is all about the open world and story
I have the PS3 vrsion and it's not exactly a dog. It looks superb and plays brilliantly , don't feel like i'm missing out at all.
after seeing kz3 who really cares about this anymore?
Looking at the "MAG SCANS" I'm not sure what you're seeing but KZ3 looks like KZ2 and there are games out now and some coming that make KZ2/3 look dated.
Honestly, after playing this on my PS3 and on my friends 360, I really don't give a damn. Never had I enjoyed a game where the environment is so large, breathtaking, and the characters are unique, this makes GTAIV and Just Caused 2 a wimp. Yes I notice texture pop-ups, glitches, game crashing bugs and occasional alpha-type graphic. But those are small compares to the scope of the game itself. Still looks beautiful on both consoles. One of the best contender for this year GOTY. As De Santa said, "Go find women, go find drink! ENJOY LIFE!" :D
gta4 with wild west skin , meh
You haven't played it. That's pretty obvious. Lol. It's nothing like GTA.
You know rdr must of really surprised Microsoft as well. They got all the sites running comparisons with thier tvs on dim, no color & rgb off! LoL! This is bull. My ps3 rdr looks fantastic. Pop-in? Where??? Don't let these paid comparisons ruin the game for you. M$ just really wants to sell this one for team America.
Both versions look good. Stop nitpicking.
that comparison didn't show alot of noticeable differences. What i took from it was all this time I could have been shooting the horses and making the rider fly off... why didn't i think of that?
Actually I thought PS3 was a lot worse reading the news on the webz. I start to think that all the ports problems are due to lack of development time for optimization. I would have bought the game in any case, pre-ordered on Amazon from March 5th.
Because now I feel like I should go and buy the Xbox 360 version instead, even though they are basically the same thing.
It's an awesome game that anyone with a PS3 or 360 should get.
Anyone still remember last generation of games? Most games were 100% finished but not these days.
WOW! I couldn't care any less about this. I'm thoroughly enjoying the game regardless. Since when did little things like this actually matter? I played GTA:SA and the graphics were crap in comparison, yet I still enjoyed every bit of it.
You forgot to mention that GTA:SA came out on the Xbox nearly a year later, after the ps2 release, so your comment FAILS!!!
GTA4 looked pretty good to me, and RDR looks better. What more cuold we want? Its multiplatform engine and thats it, it will allways be different on PS3 than X360.
those who are playing the game..realize these vids dont show really how bad the graphically glitches are on both systems.... the pop ins, the melding of players through walls (if I get killed one more time by a gun sticking through a wall) and what about the corrals which appear empty and than as you get close, like magic the livestock populate it. the reviews just ignored all this stuff or where frigging blind.. the game is GREAT and a lot of fun, but the technical issues surely should freeze scores at 95.. perfect scores ... LOL.....not with the technical oops...and than to accept it by saying the scope of the game is just a cop out
...should get some assistance to get their engine optimised for PS3 as clearly they can't do it themselves. However, in saying that RDR is still fantastic fun on PS3 and no one should be put off getting it.
I'm playing the game now on the PS3 on my 20' Sony Bravia HD TV in native 720p. Red Dead Redemption looks nothing bad like some haters are saying it is on the PS3. It looks just fine to me, it looks just like how I expected it to look. The graphics are not the best I've seen on the PS3 but the art direction, environments and natural scenery in the game looks incredible. I did not see any pop-ins or blurriness at all. The textures, detail and colours are just fine and more than good enough. There is a slight framerate issue thats all I've noticed. I really think there has been a big deal made out of these PS3 vs 360 version comparisons. The PS3 version will always look slightly different to the 360 version as they both different machines, it's that obvious. But there is hardly any kind of difference here. It seems like the 360 fanatics are clutching on straws on this one, they know the PS3 in general produces better graphics (especially with exclusives) and they wanna make noise and say one multi-plat game is better on their machine. Try again! There is nothing wrong with the PS3 version, dont listen to these haters. Play the PS3 version in full 720p HD and see for yourself. This is just pure hate, the PS3 version is just fine!
One of the biggest games of the year so far, Rockstar could have done better. Is it me or has Rockstar kinda had it out for the PS3 this gen with timed GTAIV content and now this? Well they are making The Agent so that kinda makes up for things but I have a feeling that it may go to the 360.
