The PS3 version of RDR isn`t that much different than the 360 version, I`ve played both on the same TV.

Graphic Fail. Crackdown 2, the game looks worse than Crackdown 1. How that`s possible, I don`t know.

i'm glad N4G is so popular in Germany but this translation is kinda strange

mikeslemonade2589d ago

Splinter Cell, wow..., that is a fail right there. Heavy looks good but should have looked better. God of War 3, I expected it too exceed Uncharted 2 but it didn't. Mass Effect 2 does the xbox 360 justice. Alan Wake, pretty good for a 360 game. Red Dead looks alright for a sandbox game. Crackdown 2, what a freaking joke! Final Fantasy 13 looks bad on both systems and it's Microsofts fault for convincing Sqaure Enix to make it multiplatform.

i always find this website community similar to my memories of being in elementary school.

we'd play games and make S%$t up and pick on the weaker guy and act like we were the best and take sides and pull FALSE/facts out of our ass to justify our selection on who the better group of friends was because the other group was gay. when in reality we were just a bunch of kids spouting s%^t about stuff we didn't know or understand because it was what everyone else was doing.

Any Excuse to feel superior. ps3= popular group leader 360 = less popular group leader. Fanboys= either kids groupies (Followers)

PC=daddy comes to pick them up from school

what other reason do you have to pick on an inanimate object? to feel better about your little retarded clan.

Very well said. Bubbles to you.

Commander_TK2589d ago

Last Rebillion is the worst graphic fail in 2010.

PS3 fanboy: Wait, it´s a PS3 exlusive! How´s that possible??!!

Intelligent and open-minded gamer: Well, not everything PS3 exclusive related is god´s gift to gaming. Oh, and if u take those Sony fanboy glasses off, then it would help.

FFXIII doesn't look bad on 360 when you compare it to other 360 games. In comparison to the PS3 version, it is a fail though. Some people who own bought consoles actually bought the 360 version. I can't understand these people. Maybe they think the lower resolution = better. Lol.

"Some people who own bought consoles actually bought the 360 version"

I assume you meant both. I bought it for my 360 instead of my PS3 for the achievements and the controller. Also to support RPGs on the 360.

Ocelot5252590d ago

that's just dumb

inferior shadows
VHS quality cutscenes


720p gameplay
better shadows
1080p uncompressed movies

and you choose the 360?!

nickjkl2590d ago

woah ocelot when did 720p become vhs quality

besides final fantasy 13 was not all that the white engine only used 4 of the 6 spus

Ocelot5252590d ago

where do I state that FF13 has very good graphics on the PS3? I said it was much better than the 360 version but it has poor graphics when you compare it to KZ2

and btw, the cutscenes of the 360 FF13 are heavily compressed(in the dusty old bink codec) 576p quality

PirateThom2590d ago

Yeah, the 360 version doesn't even have HD cutscenes. 1080p cutscenes, 720p gameplay on PS3 vs 567p on 360 for both.

CernaML2590d ago

"and the controller."

I don't see how that 360 controller is good for anything other than shooters.

Spydiggity2589d ago (Edited 2589d ago )

it's a weak comparison. the game looks crap on both systems. the fact that the resolution is better and the cut scenes are a little better means very little. if he wants to play it on 360 over ps3, that's up to him...not you.

i got it for ps3 over 360 and after playing it i thought to myself, if this is the better version, i'd be scared to see it on the other system...then i did and i barely saw a difference. somewhat noticeable, but hardly a deal breaker.... FF 13 is a crappy game regardless of what platform you play it on.

and don't give me that "it gets better after the first 20 hours." it got a little better, sure. but why on earth should a person have to sit through 20 hours of a little cry baby kid and a buncha characters that make no sense go through one of the worst "turn based" combat systems just to get to a slightly better part.

lets drop the ps3 vs 360 thing when it comes to ff 13...doesn't matter which system you got it on, you got screwed.

@Cerna: that's YOUR preference. i really don't get fanboys. the way something feels to you is not how it necessarily feels to someone else. how is that hard to understand?

sikbeta2589d ago

Definitely, the x360 version of FF13 was a complete shame compared to the PS3 Version...


·Alpha Protocol was lame in both versions
·RDR, I give you that, it isn't the first time R* do a non favorable version for the PS3, they did it with GTA IV as well
·AW, Idk...
·FF13, the x360 version is completely awful compared to the PS3 version
·Dark Void, Idk, besides the game was lame, so no-1 cares
·Nier, Pffft, another lame game that no-1 cares, arguing about its graphics is a waste of time
·Pure Football?, [?]
·Sniper: Ghost Warrior, Idk
·Singularity, Idk

" assume you meant both. I bought it for my 360 instead of my PS3 for the achievements and the controller. "

Are you BSing here? FOR THE CONTROLLER? Are you THAT of a delusional fanboy? The pad on the 360 SUCKS for Final Fantasy, you must be new to Final Fantasy to be playing it on the 360. I've played it on the 360 and GOD DAMN that PAD sucks ass. Feels great for shooters, but really frustrating as hell to use for Final Fantasy. Crap makes you move your thumb

Also for achievements? Have you NOT done your research? On the PS3, there's actually free unlockables that come out of getting the trophies. Achievements give you jack #&^*.

"I don't see how that 360 controller is good for anything other than shooters"

Yeah has anyone actually used the 360 controller in fighting games ? its absolutley horrible, especially in SF4

CernaML2585d ago

lmao Yeah! It's MY preference. Why are you getting your panties all up in a bunch about it? Why call me a fanboy? I was just being honest. I don't see how that controller is good for anything other than shooters. FFXIII + 360 controller..? They just don't go together. Excuse me for having a preference like YOU stated. lol

CaptainMarvelQ82590d ago

they made crackdown 2 way too cartoony looking

gypsygib2590d ago

I definitely agree that Crackdown 2 should be on there, it looks like crap but PS3 RDR deserves a spot on that list too, it is noticeably worse looking and sub-HD.

RonRico2590d ago

way better than than the last GTA and everybody thinks that game looked good for some reason.

ranmafandude2590d ago

how is it possible for a sequel's graphics to look worse than it's predecessor?isn't the game like 3 gigabytes in size that's the smallest dvd game i ever heard of lol.

Kleptic2590d ago

haha thats not much more than FFVII on the PS1...

Buller_Proofish2589d ago

only two cutscenes might have something to do with it lol.

gtamike2590d ago

crackdown 2, any Halo and games running HD as low as 500p range

SOAD2590d ago

Halo games look really good. Low resolutions, yes, but the game looks great.

MysticStrummer2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

Gotta love it when people say "graphic fail" about a game when a side by side comparison is needed to see the difference, as in most 360/PS3 multiplats. PS3's RDR should not be on this list and neither should Alan Wake. My God, Google... get a new translator.

ElementX2590d ago

I don't mind the Crackdown 2 graphics. So many haters don't even own it but they comment based off of reviews and screen shots. It's not a beautiful game, I'll give you that, but I like the cel-shading even if it is simplistic.

scar-leg2589d ago

My girlfriend's brother has it, and when I was round there, he was playing it. I have to say I was shocked at the graphics. It felt like the PS2 days :P

gypsygib2589d ago

Or maybe rentals and demo's proved the graphics are arse.

HolyOrangeCows2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

Alan Wake's resolution (960x540) was just pretty much a few pixels away from being SD. I don't care if it had 4xAA, that's like giving a ps2 game 4xAA.

Pretty sad, considering it's an exclusive.

palaeomerus2590d ago

It's really stupid that you say stuff like that.

320x480x2 is NOT a few pixels away from 960x540, Alan Wake's main frame buffer is 960x540 but it does a LOT of post with that, does more lighting than most other games, and best of all, Alan Wake doesn't look ANYTHING like a PS2 game. Anyone who says it does is a freaking brainwashed idiot who probably never even looked at it.

Sony3602590d ago

This is the dumbest, most ignorant post I've read all week.
