8.5/10 For Both PS3 & 360 Madden NFL 08 from Gamespot

One of the big points of contention about this year's Madden has been the difference in performance between the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions. It was announced some time ago that the 360 version would run at 60 frames a second, versus 30 on the PS3. When you compare the two games side by side, yes, there is a noticeable difference. The PS3 version is certainly choppier and slightly more prone to hitching up in-game than the 360 one. However, simply taken on its own merits, the PS3 version isn't suddenly awful because of this one issue. The choppiness rarely ever distracts you from the gameplay, and for the most part, the 30 frames a second number holds pretty steady. If you have a choice between the two, certainly the 360 version is the preferable one from a visual standpoint, but the PS3 version isn't unplayable by any means.

The review says "PlayStation 3 version's frame rate is much lower than the 360's" and says PS3 is choppier in second page but gives them both an equal score of 8.5?

I was thinking the same thing,I guess they dont want the PS3 fans to get mad and start crying.

Funky Town_TX3546d ago

PS3 fans will kill you if you give a PS3 game a low review. Okay Madden 08 PS3=10 xbox 360=2.

crck3546d ago

So they would have to drop the ps3 version to a 8 if they lowered it. I guess they assumed it wasn't a big enough deal to merit the reduction.

ShiftyLookingCow3546d ago (Edited 3546d ago )

I think Gamespot has a policy of giving same generation multiplatform games the same score

[edit] my bad I was wrong,

MK_Red3546d ago

You have a valid point but GameDaily doesn't even have .5 so they gave PS3 version 8 and 360 version 9. 1UP Gave 8.5 to PS3 version and 9 to 360 one.

daveman33546d ago

no they dont, just look at any of the other multiplat games they have, most of them have different scores in which the 360 version is rated higher

Bloodmask3546d ago

can a reviewer blatantly come out and say the 360 version is better. And then give them the same score??

In my book Gamespot loses credibility.

toughNAME3546d ago (Edited 3546d ago )

its like there trying to be a good judge...but at the same time they want to keep everyone happy :D
?
bad journalism/reporting w\e

MK_Red3546d ago

Agreed. Gamespot lost credibility in my book long ago when:
1.They gave WarioWare higher score than Zelda TP (I think 8.7 for Zelda was fair but 9 for Wario was seriously too much).
2.They gave Mortal Kombat: Armageddon 7/10 while it was much more than than. (Not the best MK but still...)
3.When a lame movie based game comes out and they give Wii version the same score as PS2 & PSP score while Wii is supposedly stronger console looks on par with PS2 and has worse controls thanks to lazy devs misusing Wiimote.

akaFullMetal3546d ago

still sucks that the ps3 keeps getting second place to 360 on multiplatfrom games

WaggleLOL3546d ago

LOL!

* RidgeRacer PS3 version 1080p 60fps vs lowrez 720 for the 360

* Oblivion PS3 had better graphics and faster loading

* Dirt PS3 version has 1080p and better driving controller support and faster loading

* Stranglehold PS3 users get a free HD movie right on the BluRay disc

* Unreal Tournament Epic has already stated the PS3 version is running better than the 360, complete support for pc mods, mouse and keyboard support, possible future PS3/PC cross platform play

* Burnout PS3 lead platform 1080p

* DMC PS3 version 1080p

Oh, yeah Ubisoft put out some crappy PS3 port. Yawn...

"If you have a choice between the two, certainly the 360 version is the preferable one from a visual standpoint, but the PS3 version isn't unplayable by any means."

"The PS3 version is certainly choppier and slightly more prone to hitching up in-game"

Madden 360 @60fps
Madden ps3 @30fps

The ps3 always second or third place.
