Dead Rising 2 Screen Tearing, MASSIVE one... on the PS3

4 guys, 2 girls and a blog writes: It is extremely disheartening when such a famed developer/publisher like Capcom would allow buggy final products to be marketed.

Long story short, the PS3 version of Dead Rising 2 is plagued with VERY VERY nauseating screen tearing throughout the map. Even when the map is devoid of any objects, it tears like hell.

I have tried the Xbox 360 version and notice no such issues on the platform.

Capcom, what the hell are you doing with QC? and DR2 is supposed to boost up your company's sales performance. *Sigh*

Please release a patch soon, the game is really unplayable with all the tear.

For now... 0/5. (Dead Rising 2, PS3)

4guys2girlsandablog DEFINITELY has an advanced copy of both versions of the game. DEFINITELY.

"the game is really unplayable with all the tear"
Definitely made-up BS. We've already seen PS3 footage, definitely FAR from "unplayable".
Some screen-tearing? Yes.
Unplayable? Hardly.

So far, I agree that 4guys2girlsandablog.blogspot.c om is a no name blog that could be making stuff up.
However, I have heard other websites report similar findings.

I guess when the game is finally released and if the screentearing on ps3 is found to be an issue in reputable analysis, then we can conclude 4guys2girlsandablog.blogspot.c om is to be trusted after all.

I bought this game on friday for ps3. Sadly the game does suffer from a pretty hellish amount of screen tearing but for me it has not detracted from my enjoyment of shoving a coat hanger down a zombies throat. The boss battles are quite tricky and the game suffers from a heck of a lot of loading screens when you travel around the map.

I have had this game since since its release on friday and there is tearing but its not as bad as this clearly flamebait "blog" is making out.

The moron who wrote this surely can't be that stupid to think that there would be no tearing when there are thousands of zombies on screen at once.

Also to those complaining about the graphics not being amazing.... Get Real! With the amount of Zombies and the amount of weapons and clothing customisations and vehicles along with the psychopaths that you fight, i think the graphics are damn good and the developers should be proud of this AAA Game.

The game is really great and i urge people to at least rent it just to try it out. I've not encountered a single bug yet which shows how well the developers did with the multiplatform development.

In opposite dreamworld 360, where fanboyz have only one thing to play : ridiculous differences beetween two multiplatforms (but only when something is superior on 360, helping to forget all the inferiors things in the same game)

"The 360 has better performance or graphics on most multi-platform games. "

yeah yeah right, if you feel better with your inferior experience believing that, why not :) (but only with 200X zoom, with comparisons made by others biased fans like you.)...by the way, screen tearing is a 360 speciality (fact !), ps3 do that way less often.

since more than 4 years, ALL the great games are most of the time exactly the same (or have very little differences for ps3, or 360), but i agree it's not a good thing for ps3, who should have better version every time, with superior hardware and exclusives..

@Jazz4108 (new desperated fanboyz multiaccount) lol, you are the joke of the day :
"ps3 fans only like exclusives because its the only thing they can brag about since they have nothing to compare it too. " you can compare ps3 exclusives to ANYTHING you want (but don't, you're gonna cry)

el zorro  +   1643d ago
Burnout Paradise was exactly the same on both consoles. I don't know why you PS3 fans are so confused about that. Go read the Digital Foundry face off.

And yes, there are a few games that are better on the PS3, but it is the other way around most of the time. The 360 has better performance or graphics on most multi-platform games.
moparful99  +   1642d ago
No el zorro thats a miguided conception that everyone has.. 95% of the people that play these games will not notice screen tearing, frame rate dips, and other post effects that pop in and out... Nearly every multi plat runs near identically on either platform but for some reason all of these arm chair critics come out of the woodwork with these obsurd claims and expect everyone to believe them to be true.. Most of the digital foundry comparissons are sooooooo tecnical and the differences that they find are very minimal but they are there so they give the nod to either platform and suddenely its a win for said console... This crap is getting very irksome...
gamer2010  +   1642d ago

Completely false. I have done lots of comparisons myself and the differences are very often not minor and are in fact quite noticeable and actually impact the visual quality of the games.

Sites like Digital Foundry have to be fair and impartial otherwise it would be easy for someone else to come along with their own analysis tools and prove that they were inaccurate. Nobody has ever been able to do that.

You can claim most people won't notice the differences, but I think that is false. I know that many gamers, myself included, notice and are annoyed by things such as screen tearing, framerate slowdown, jaggies, and low res textures. I notice these things easily and without trying.

The reason the comparisons are getting "irksome" to you is because you are a PS3 fanboy and you can't stand that the PS3 versions so often turn out to be inferior.

It really depends. I've heard that both versions had screen tearing, but it was not massive the way he or she described it. You will notice in some areas in the game, but other than that it's fine in most areas. Oh yea, every time I go to youtube to watch playthrough videos, the guys are always laughing when they are playing. I am not going to miss those moments, so this is not going to stop me at all.

If it were as bad as this blog was claiming, "unplayable", I'm pretty sure it would have been mentioned in the reviews. Which it hasn't.
SaberEdge  +   1643d ago
Reviews almost never mention any differences between the different console versions of multiplatform games.

For one thing, most reviewers only play through one version, so they have nothing to compare it to.

The other thing is, most reviewers don't really see it as their role to judge the differences between versions of multiplatform games. They are simply judging the game on its qualities as a game, not performance differences between the consoles.

Reviewers only rarely will comment on differences between both versions of a multiplatform game, and then only if it there is a wide gulf of difference between them.

This is the reason that technical comparison resources like Digital Foundry exist. I for one will never rely on reviews to tell me of any differences because, as I said, they almost never do. For this reason I am glad that comparison sites exist; they help me to determine which version of a game I should get.

That is stange usually Ps3 games are v-synced,.. it is the 360 versions that tear like a mofo,.. but judging by case zero,.. 360 version has like f*** 20 secs loading screens,..every half a minute

I stopped it already ,.. Playing it on pc,..(and it is not very well optimized,.. maybe it is the drivers,.) got bored after few hours,.. couple of bosses have awesome vibe to them,.. tough owning them,.. is pure luck ,.. and preparation,.. just retarded,.. Like you have to die just to see what is new,.. gets really old really fast,.. and repetitive,.. stoped at level like 16,.. and all what Ive been dooing is grinding,..cases 1,2,3 for cards and stats,..wtf is this shit,..

hint(there is a casino with big slot machine you can get like 100K,..)

I think that is why they added all the time-pressure,.. just tried the trainer with time freeze(or slow down),.. it was fun for half an hour,..

how this game gets 8.5s is beyond my comprehension,..should be 7.9 at best ,..and that is because, there is something charming to be able to pick up so much shit,..

Just try to bash the 360. U can have your fun when kinect launches. But this is the last time I will state this because its obvious. Devs have trouble with the ps3 because its os is very slow and the bluray drive is slow. You have to install almost evedrything to make up for the slow reading and installing is painfully slow. Just admit that sony really messed up with the cell. It would also be a lot better if it did not split its memory. You can make a good looking ps3 game but it takes years of time and millions of dollars. Its obvious as to why the 360 runs so much smoother with 0 installs with its fast dvd9. 360 needs a larger storage medium for next gen and more memory and it will be killer. Sont needs to scrap the cell and hire someone to make a good operating system as the one they have. fails on every level. On topic multiplats will be better on the 360 for these reasons as bluray actually is good for movies but hinders development since its so slow at pulling info from the disc hence all the installs to harddrive. Ms now made a bad choice on sending out faulty hardware but my god there system does work now and its really fun to use and its a pleasure to program on for the devs. Dead rising will be good not great but I hope they at least made it playable on the ps3. Now I know why ps3 fans only like exclusives because its the only thing they can brag about since they have nothing to compare it too.

Dude this whole argument was thrown out the window a long time ago... There are far more games that do not require any form of installs.. (Fun fact: I did a search to shut someone like you up and in my findings I discovered that only 65 games required any form of mandatory install out of hundreds of titles.) In fact installs were a trick that developers used as a shortcut early in the ps3's lifecyle because 1. It's easier. 2. Every ps3 comes with a hard drive.. Developers have openely admitted that they would have done the same with the 360 but not every 360 has a hard drive meaning it would be unplayable for alot of people... Look at games like uncharted 2 a tecnical masterpiece and not a single bit of data has to be stored to the hard drive.. This is because, yea the cell is complicated but it affords sooo much more power then the xenos ever could. Its evident in just how much the gap between ps3 exclusives and 360 exclusives has grown.. OHh and years of development and millions of dollars? So you mean like allan wake, too human, splinter cell??? Lmao you realize that the ps3's best game and arguably one of the best this generation only took two years to develop right???

Ice tryn Allen Wake is a fun and beautifull game. Can you say Bayonetta, dead rising, madden, dead space, boarderlands, call of duty, and so many morethat all reviewed better on the 360. I have a ps3 and its such a pain to even turn on with its updates. Uncharted was good but not impressive for a cartoon like boarderlands, heavy rain and metal gear just a movie with some gameplay and god of war what a mess.
P_Bomb  +   1642d ago
For starters, it's ALAN Wake...not Allen. BORDERlands, not Boarder. An expert such as yourself with such an eye for detail should surely know this.

Furthermore, if an arbitrary one point difference in Meta' score means that much to you I'll just point out that COD and Madden 11 reviewed exactly the same on both systems while Assassin's Creed 2, Street Fighter 4, Super SF4, Fifa 10, NHL 11, Just Cause 2, Blaz Blue, MK vs DC, Castle Crashers, Dragon Age Origins, Unreal Tourny 3, Resident Evil 5, Prince of Persia, BF: Bad Company, Split Second, Prototype, Singularity, Dante's Inferno, Transformers: War for Cybertron and many more all scored higher on PS3.

This isn't the first, second or third multi-platform game that has played worse on the PS3 than the other system. This may explain why PS3 owners rely and boast so much on their "exclusives" since most everything else plays better elsewhere.
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   1643d ago
There may be slight differences in multi-plat games, but only a couple are different enough for anyone to notice. Bayonetta and The Orange Box come to mind. Both were patched later as well, to improve the issues.

Going by your so called Fact.

If I made a PS3 game poorly and didn't put much work in it Vs putting a lot of work into the 360 one.

That would mean that it's the PS3 that was the problem and not me for not working hard on that version.
maxcer  +   1643d ago
that is probably is never the case, if anything the developers will have an equal budget for both platforms.

In the end it always seems like the ps3 version needed more time which means more funds spent on that one version than the other.

Proves the blogger's right
That video just proves what they say is true. Screen tearing was prominent all the way through that especially in the scene where he throws the knife at the zombie in the kitchen. Also when he exits the kitchen with the chainsaw the framerate takes a big hit and continues when he uses it. The low framerate is much more noticeable in the more open and populated areas which your video is conveniently devoid of. Please stop with the misinformation because it only confuses people into buying a poor port which this definitely is

This video is a better example on how bad the screen tearing is and what happens to the framerate in the open populated areas.

There isn't even any screen tearing in this video. Do you know what a screen tear looks like? It's not a frame skip which there is a bit in spots of the video but you are showing people a giant video showing the EXACT opposite of what they sayin.
