Mafia 2 graphics comparison: PC vs. PS3 vs. Xbox 360

Hand made screenshots from Mafia 2 have emerged. PC Games compares graphics details and textures via several screenshots with identical scenes. The PC version has the best graphics, even with the same resolution. Console versions look look stunning, though. (Mafia 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

How can you tell anything with such small blurry screenshots? Is there any way to make the screenshots larger?

I also want to know if there are any differences like screen tearing, anti-aliasing, frame rate or other performance differences.

Edit: Nevermind, I found the way to see the full sized versions.

Click the button lower right of the shots.

Zoom in to spot the differences
You can easily see sharper textures on the pc version. As expectec, I might say ^^

PC version wins, I'd say.

The game where this is not the case is a firm indication that the dev just did not care a lick about the PC version lol.

those are some bad jaggies on both console versions, slightly worse on ps3

in fact the pc version has jaggies too but that can be fixed, not the case for consoles

NVidia PhysX for Mafia II exclusive to PC


Mirror's Edge was the best example of PhysX use, this clearly dethrones that.
Chris_TC  +   1905d ago
Mirror's Edge is not the best example at all.
You should play Batman Arkham Asylum with PhysX all the way up. Now THAT will blow your mind.

Cynamite has posted 6 articles on the same subject with the same screenshots. I'm confident all of them will be approved and hit the first page. I'd be disappointed if they didn't :)

Not sure if this is the right kind of attention you wanna be attracting to your site, brodawg.
asdf12  +   1905d ago
They all look the same to me.

PS3 version has no AA.

Not that it seems to make too big of a difference, but you can see it on the trees.


Would you believe, the guy who lost his bubble being a 'PS3 fanboy' is having to make this call first.

Mmm xbox 360 doesn't seem to have anymore AA applied! Looks slighty blurrier I must say! Did not expect to be saying this but from these screenshots the ps3 version looks to be the more appealing of the two console versions. (actual screentear/framerate not included in the analysis off course) Either way I think (hope) that 2K did a good job on both the console versions.

LOL @ PC screens at 720p, you can't even buy 720p monitors...

They also always bench without AA and AF...that's like playing a blu ray over vga cables on a 1080p tv...

PC has a larger FOV in those shots. They're just scaled down from higher resolution to match the resolution of the console shots... :/

In this shot


The PS3 version is missing two cars. Why? Doesn't make sense. It'd make sense if one console could render more on screen objects, sure. But only one car at a time? :P

If you look at them in full, the PS3 version was taken slightly later.. The cameras in slightly more, check the ladies shadow. Therefore the car's out of view and the other has drove on by

I always thought these review sites would play the same game on different consoles and platforms - visit the same place and take a screenshot at an exact location. I can't see how they manage to port the game from on machine to another :S
sayonara89  +   1905d ago
360 (probably 1152x576) sub hd with MSAAx2, PS3 720p with no AA?

360 version has a higher FOV than the PS3 version which suggests higher screen resolution.

PS3 version, no AA, 640p. Hard to tell, none of the shots provided are at native.
sayonara89  +   1905d ago
FOV is the same and screenshots are 720p native. 320 version looks sub-hd to me (more blurry), I'm waiting for pixel counters verdict.
Chris_TC  +   1905d ago
I agree with sayonara. The 360 is definitely sub-720p, you can tell that the framebuffer has been upscaled.
It will be fun when the pixel counters confirm this. It's plain obvious, but everybody will become upset about the pixel counting anyway.

The PS3 is native 720p without AA. Pick your poison.

I wish they'd have used higher-res textures on the PC version. It looks like they ported the textures straight from the console versions. PC still looks the best, though.
xg-ei8ht  +   1905d ago

If you can see that, then you should have gone to spec savers.

360 looks blurry and it's colour is off.
ManGastaS  +   1905d ago
so easy to see
PC >> 360 >> PS3
roccohateskittens  +   1905d ago
Hand made screenshots? I'm curious about how this is possible. Anyone care to explain?

Why involve PC version anyway? It was obvious that it will look best.
Anyway no big differences between xbox/PS3. What about pop ups?
The PS3 version of RDR caused allmost bleeding eyes at tall trees...
Thats the only thing I really want to know.
kevnb  +   1905d ago
some of us want to compare the pc
its nice to see the differences.
NnT3291  +   1905d ago
Consoles look the same, PC is the best looking version.
NYC_Gamer  +   1904d ago
its common sense that pc would look better
