N4G member Cartesian3D made this picture for screen comparison between the PS3 and X360 versions of GRAW 2... Images on the left side are from the PS3 version, images on the right side are from the X360. Source images are courtesy of IGN.com.
... EDIT : Thx TNS for your help ( for EDITing the text ) :) and to guys said its not a good comparison : I HAVE NOT GRAW 2 PS3 version in my HANDS RIGHT NOW , so dont say BS "they are not in same location,Lighting,blahblah... " there is no lighting in many of 360 screens.. I DID show u that LIGHTING sux in 360 version ... and GRAW 2 devs Fix that problem, they polished it and make it so much better in my eyes.. anyway I said many times that I DONT WANT TO SAY PS3 is MORE POWERFULL , look at Virtua Fighter, oblivion and now GRAW 2 .. its about BRAIN . EA hasnt one. thats all
But where are the pictures? Edit: Ok, you attached it.
These are the worst pictures I have ever seen to compare with. There not even taken at the same time of day or same exact spot of the game. They don't even look like there from the same source. If you're going to compare something, you have to compare from the same setup not from 6 or 8 different setups. Next!!!
no offense but the only thing to really go off that is the same......... is comparing the grass. Big whup. Flame bait article number ___40002193
Bad pics to do a comparison with. I mean you can´t even get a good close look at the grass....(remember Dirt comparison?)
yeah... Im confused by you whole statement....Let alone the fact that all the images used are IGN images you did no comprison images...this is not your creation..... And from your first post its like your saying, I have the 360 version and ps3 version and I did these direct captures my self... this is ign, and you did a sucky image comparison.
Are you even speaking english? I can't understand a single word that you write, your english skills are just about as bad as your comparison photo's.
Still doesn't justify me spending an extra $200.00.
Bad comparison...but if you do go by the pics PS3 looks better, as it should since it had more dev time. Compare games that came out the same time like Stranglehold or The Darkness, Madden etc. (actually dont use any EA games). Flamebait, moving on.
Just listen to you 360 fanboys, you people are pathetic! "One of the worst comparisons ever!?" are you people fvcking kidding me? this is one of the best user created comparisons i have ever seen on this site, and especially when you consider the fact that he did it by using pictures from IGN's site. Good job Cartesian, dont listen to these little mad fanboys. That's why they are all talking sh!t about this. Cuz they are man cuz they cant stand the fact that the PS3 version does look better on these pics. They are nothing more than rabid fanboys, that cant take it. If anybody can show me some better "user created" comparison pictures on this site, then you can prove me wrong. Otherwise, shut the fvck up and stop your little b!tch fanboy whining. "Fanboys" are pathetic!
I've played the 360 version. And I've played the PS3 demo, I can say hands down that the PS3 version looks better. The shadow effects are a lot better, and it makes a big difference. I know theres a difference in the pictures but thats actually what the 360 version and PS3 one looks like. 360 ones you notice the lack of shadows in the plants. And when you walk up to vehicles, your shadow dosn't cast on them like they should etc. But shadows in general are better in ever object in the PS3 one, ranging from people, landscape etc. And I'm not sure if there's more jaggies in the 360, but you notice it quite a bit the in the 360 version. Although I think that has to do with the better shadows on the PS3 version, and because of that the jaggies are not so noticeable. Over all 360 one looks more washed out than PS3 version. Oh yeah, and if you turn on the Full RGB setting on the PS3 it makes a little difference too the looks in GRAW2 also. The RGB settings are Supported on most Hi-Def TV's, most TV have it set low. Makes a huge difference in most games, Resistance exceptionally. And you need HDMI. Go to your PS3/settings/display settings/RGB full(HDMI) and set to full.
lol .. I had a big mistake.. didnt upload in ADD MORE IMAGE ...fogive me guys..
just wanted to know why you have put the channels in the PC and PSP section? ..... oh and also the comparison you have done is one of the worste i have seen.
The ps3 version does look better. I'm suprised. Nuff said
Yup Bout time Ubisoft started doing a good job. looks good, may pick it up
thx for your reports.. I fixed those problems.. now Approve it if u want .. or use that picture and make your own News with non problems.. I dont want any point in this site.. lol just show that GRAW 2 devs did a good job on PS3 version and They improved LIGHTING( I didnt see any lighting in many 360 screens, I saw it just in some outdoor screens from Jungle ) and they improved Trees,grass.. and so on.. GRAW2 Ps3 version is alil bit better than 360 with more content :)
wow a this is one of the best ubisoft ports i have ever seen. Ps3 wins. yes they had more time Makes me think now will dev like this recon team will start making ps3 games ground up and porting them to ps3.
PS3 does have more real lightning, the last pic reminds me of the new lighting effect they use for Killzone 2. Xbox version isn't bad, i am sure fans of both console can enjoy this equally, wont' notice the graphics once bullets start to fly
yeah both look great but ps3 looks better... i think they improve this because the demo looks horrible
They use the exact same assets(geometry,polygons, textures). It is a port. The only differences will be framerate, lighting, colors(BC of GPU differences), AA....etc.
No,it's absolutely not a port.
the design part was same as 360 and they didnt change anythin except add some features to 360 version ( some new exclusive New MP maps and sixaxis and blah blah ... ) and the difference is in Lighting and AA and framerates....etc.. all of them are changed becuz PS3 team can make it in their way..may be completly different compare to 360 in my opinion they make it so much better in term of lighting.. I know that 360 proved itself with Gears of war..I DONT WANT TO SAY PS3 is BETTER guys.. with this post I want to say EA is just a CRAP dev with no brain and no expert engineer .. they just want to make games with LOWEST possible money and make for 1234454 platform at the same time..
Said above. Graw2 PS3 was written by Ubi's Shanghai studio, the 360 version in the US. Different teams, not a port. PS3 version was re-written from scratch. (But, sure, same art department, AFAIK)
u said they arent in same Lighting situation.. I didnt see any Lighting in 360 version except Jungle screens in daylight.. and there is no PS3 version screen on that location and time.. those screens are the best choices for comparison .. in my opinion.. thx for your report..
2 screens look better on the 360, and 2 screens look better on the PS3, doesnt really show much, show the in-game cutscenes for the best comparison. I played it a while back on 360, so I wont be getting this again. It was fun, but nothing new really, except a drone view.
The voice acting in graw are so cheesy, it ruins the believability.
I wish they'd talk to EA and see what they can teach them about that old rumored, magical secret called "working". 8| -good job Cartesian
Out of nowhere I see your post and start dieing laughing. Good thing to because Ubisoft is EA's #1 competitor, and my favorite thing out of France! I loved this game on 360 but the grass looks 100x better on the PS3. The best part is the 16 player co-op, I don't no why more games try something like that.
I feel you on that MaddenRaiders. EA has made me very dissapointed.
so you are willing to get madden 5 months after the xbox 360 version and have it be completely identical to the xbox 360 version 5 months later.
I am not. I don't know why it would take 5 extra months anyway, if what I outlined above was applied to this situation. And really socom, what about the 360 version besides the 60 frames per second is so compelling about this game? What? The 60fps should be an afterthought and other features in the game should rise far far above it. 4 players in usnison doing the same thing at once on the sidelines is not cool. 8 black guys earing white Polo's and kakhi's on the sideline should not be doing the same things all at once, and taking the same stances over and over and over again. Where is the endzone contingent of busy cameramen, stadium and NFL personnel? Something as simple as a full compliment of refs on field (that's in the game)? Let's just leave the crowd out of the comment for now - pathetic. Are all things about this year's Madden bad socom? No, but even you can admit that there is a little left to be desired for a game that's been around since 1989, now -- on next-gen technology -- not to mention N.A.'s biggest sports game by a longshot. This sports game should actually seperate itself from all others (as Madden did back in the PS2 day and even XBox 1 days) on this generation of consoles letting us know for sure that we're playing something special. Do you feel that way? Would 5 months be annoying enough for me while waiting? Yes, of course, but if it meant that we were playing a superb rendition of photorealistic football with the full gambit of nuances (at least an attempt) in the game and a HUGE REDUCTION IN UNACCEPTABLE GLITCHES -- then hell yes I would wait 5 months and know that, that template was in place for the years going forward. You would hear a resounding YESSS!!! from the masses and EA would be heralded as one of the best of all time. Period. But money rules the day unfortunately and that will never happen. Vacations will be taken, status quo accepted, and the line of programmed drones will fork out their hard earned cash each year for more EA vomit and THEIR vision of NFL football. ~Not Me~ Ok, now I'm in a dream state.....dreaming what a Polyphony Digital rendition of NFL football would look like with the NFL license. Don't wake me up........don't do it........ W O W it looks amazing...just W O W
OMFG the 4th pixel from the top in the first picture IS OFF BY 0.2 mm OMFG!!!!!...sd;lfjsl;fksl;f sigh..stop with comparison plz...
I agree, I dont see how people can make an accurate comparison when those screenshots are so not even in the same area for most. Game was cool had some of the best explosions ive seen thus far.
Oblivion came out a great port...so GRAW2 is gonna a great port also!
Perhaps I misunderstood your comment, but Ubisoft didn't have anything to do with Oblivion...
lmao it better look better on the PS3!
And it does XD
It is expected that the better hardware would produce a better looking game, so yes it does look better on the PS3.
Good thing! Developers are starting to understand the PS3, great work! Even though the comparison pics aren't from the same setting, i'd have to agree that the PS3 version looks a little bit better. Hope this is a sign of things to come. And I am not saing that in a "Xbox 360 sucks way", I am saying that in a "good for all gamers" way.
PS3 wins this one. RB6V went to the 360. I am glad that they took their time on this game. I am not sure if I am going to purchase it though, I will be spending to much time with Warhawk and I still need to beat Ninja Gaiden and kill some people on Resistance and Rainbow 6. :)
no chance r6 vegas looks better on ps3. did you even see it on the ps3 ? edit: skinfan then you never played the xbox360 version. alone the better lightning on the ps3 makes the game far better on the ps3, this bloom on the xbox360 version is far too strong.
Hi Achira, I play the PS3 Version all the time :)
ps3 hands down, then again the situations in the comparisons are different so can ny1 really say which is better
Graphics and image quality comparisons between consoles/settings are useless unless you can get screenshots in, at the least, relative locations. That's why it's called comparisons. The lighting and environment is different in every shot.
I'd like to say... the PS3 version (from those screenshots) look better...but there's no losers in this topic. 360 owners played the heck out of this game already and the PS3 owners get motion controls with better lighting, everyone is happy. Good job to UBISOFT. EDIT: i always thought EA and UBISOFT took way too much heat for "bad" ports to the PS3, they've had 3(+) years to work with the Xbox360 and around 1 year with the PS3, give them some time before you call them lazy. The recent games shows that the developers are starting to understand how to optimize the PS3 more and more. It ain't easy folks. BTW: Wait for the final version of the PS3 GRAW2 before we start real comparisons. remember R6 vegas looked really similair BEFORE the squad got into las vegas.
Hopefully Ubisoft is setting an example for other companies who make multiplatform games(especially EA). Ps3 graw2 looks so vivid. i've played the 360 version at my friends crib but I want to get this game for my ps3 so I can see the improvement and i alays been a graw fan ever since the first one. rock on ps3
This game looks awesome. I envy 360 fans who got to play it first. But now its finally our turn:-)
all of the environments are not even the same. some of these screen shots could be different days at different times in different environments with different people. just look at them.
I game in 1080p all ways with this same game and i could give you my screen shots and they will say different.
Well go ahead then, do your own comparison and post it. I´m sure the guy who did this comparison did the best he could.
Then ps3 has oblivion, darkness, dirt, graw 2, possibly rage engine games look better. Not doing too shabby for new tech that has been out for under a year now.
Oblivion: OK The Darkness: With all those jaggies in the PS3 edition, i Would say 360 looks better. DiRT: Each person has their own opinion about this game. But the fact that some scenry isnt there in the PS3 version i would say 360 here as well. GR:AW 2: Maybe, if we could get an comparison with screenshots that is from the same place, we could find out. possibly rage engine games look better: Wait and see.
There is no way this can be called a comparison, not even remotely. Whoever did this had the clear intention of making the PS3 look better. Anyone can do a comparison like this and make each system look better. The only way you could tell would be to have the same levels/positions, etc... to compare. This thread FAILS in all levels.
I got one Disagree and no Agree for saying the same thing in a different way.
why didnt you say that in threads where the xbxo360 screens were better ? its ok when the xbox360 screens are better, but when the ps3 screenshots are better, the comparison sucks ?
Exactly. Very poor "comparison"
Just plain bait!! Like your 360, like your PS3, like your Pee-WII. i don't care. just stop with stuff like this!
There is a problem with the reliability either way. Ubisoft often issues cross platform shots. Secondly, they photoshop their work. Fact.
I really like how 360fanboys will quick to jump to the photoshop card or the "unfair comparison" card every time a PS3 game might look superior visually. The fact is that GRAW 2 was developed on both 360 and PS3 simultaneously. GRAW 2 is NOT a port. Secondly you need to realize the obvious obvious fact that GRAW 2 for the PS3 is developed longer than the 360 version, so it's only natural they have more time to polish up. Gameplay looks to be identical with the little SIXAXIS gimmicks added on. The 360 had the superior Rainbow Six Vegas, but a lot of PS3 people really didn't care. They were just happy enough to get RSV regardless if the 360 version was better or not. It's still a lot of fun gameplay. So please take your heads out of your asses real quick, and just get some sunshine. Because your bigotry hearts is stopping you from realizing that it's not because a game might look better on the PS3, that it'll take away the 360 version. It just means everybody gets to play great games regardless of what consoles they are on. UBISOFT was criticized for "poor ports" and now they are working really hard to turn that around.
mistertwoturbo is 100% right.
I am not a 360 fanboy. In fact a lot of people think different. But having dealt with Ubisoft before I can tell you it is their practice. On top of that if you examine my past posts, I stated that having seen the PS3 version personally, not just the demo, that it would look better than the 360 version.
Good job ubisoft
Although I agree with your points, those screenshots can't be called a comparison anyways. Sorry but that is the plain truth, regardless of any other details.
Yeah, There are someshots on the 360 version that look similiar to some of the shots on the PS3 version. Overall it looks like they made some changes, but ... then I see some on the 360 version that don't look flat, so maybe the sun was on a different side. Really...it is a complete waste of time doing these stupid comparisons if you can't get screen shots from the same position.
blah. And then you see this 360 screen shot... I think this is a crap comparison.
Is that your display waffle or did you find the pic on the net? If it's yours what type of display are you using?
on my PS3, and i thought it was cool, but i think i'm going to have to go with Bioshock on my PC for my game purchase next week. then the week after that is Warhawk, and the week after that is Lair, and the week after that is Heavenly Sword, and the week after that is Stranglehold... *sigh*
