PS3 vs 360 Face-Off: Dead Rising 2 | Digital Foundry

Digital Foundry: "In the case of Dead Rising 2, a new studio also means a new engine: only recently, with the development of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, has the publisher allowed the use of its prized Framework MT technology outside of its Japanese HQ, so Blue Castle Games utilised its own technology for this release. The result is pretty impressive: the tech manages to process the requisite multitudes of zombies rather well and the draw distance and LOD transitions are fairly smooth with only minimal amounts of pop-up.

Disadvantages arrive in the form of sometimes-basic environments and lighting, along with some low-poly characters, but the overall effect is impressive. The question is, does the technical accomplishment translate over to the PS3 version of the game?" (Dead Rising 2, PS3, Xbox 360)

I have a 360 and a PS3, but I decided to get the PS3 version because it's my preferred console.

Besides, I can't download Case Zero because it's IP locked.

It's interesting to me how many multiplat games are out there, and how infrequently we see these types of comparisons, and when we do see these comparisons on sites like Eurogamer - they mainly focus on strong 360 games. What about the other 98% of games, because if reviewer scores speak the truth, the vast majority of multiplat games seem to review better on the PS3, and have since 2008.

Some ports are good on the PS3, some on the 360 but most games are so close you'd never notice. What I hate is the usual crowd that use these comparisons as some proof that their console is better than the other. It's not. It speaks to the developers strenghts. Nothing more.

Still don't understand why they port over the compression! 360 version 6.1GB. PS3 version 5.91 GB.

This is the case with every multiplatform, 360 lead game. Cell is designed to run uncompressed code from a disk format that requires no compression and spares loss of memory, reduced image and sound quality that is synonymous with compression. Yet it is like these devs are just stuck in a feedback loop and can't fathom writing code without it.

"The PS3 rendition of Dead Rising 2 appears to be using an entirely different approach to the rendering. V-sync is disengaged completely, as is the 30FPS frame-rate cap. What this means is screen-tear is an ever-present element of the image"

Well it turns out that 2brothers and 2 sisters blog (or whatever it was called) was right about the pervasive screen tearing in the PS3 version.

It also goes to show that some of the people claiming that the 360 version has just as much screen tearing as the PS3 version were just talking out their you-know-whats.

"there's some good news for Xbox 360 owners. Probably the most immediately apparent upgrade over the first game is that the developer is running with v-sync active, meaning that there is absolutely no screen-tear at all"

StanLee  +   1962d ago
Having a console for just exclusives makes no sense. There are many great multiplatform games and the negligible differences are only worth arguing over by fanboys. The problem is, Sony justified its console's initial price tag by labeling it the most powerful console. It then spent millions within its internal development studios building the software to justify this claim. The fact is, the PS3 is the more powerful console but developers aren't going to change the foundation of how they've developed games for the pass 15 years just to appease Sony's fanboy base. It isn't worth the investment. The compromises made to PS3 multiplatform games aren't even discernable.

It's sad that Capacom, the classic dev, still hasn't stepped up it's game this gen on PS3.
Frankly, I don't understand it. At this point the average performance differences on multiplat Games are tiny. Why isn't Capcom meeting the same quality as so many other devs? It's bizarre they don't understand that releasing sub par versions of their titles is slowly alienating the world's 38 Million PS3 gamers. Come to think of it, I haven't purchased a single Capcom game in the 3 and 1/2 years I've owned a PS3...because Capcom's games ALWAYS require massive installs and the performance and visuals are STILL subpar.

No wonder your revs are down, Capcom. Other devs, that work harder to ensure quality across all platforms, deserve consumer money far more than you do.

I have. Street fighter 4 and Super street fighter 4. Other then that nothing. Big fighting game fan and fan of the fighting game dev's at Capcom.

bjornbear  +   1962d ago

how dare you kratosgirl *smh*

well, this happens when devs port from one platform to the other (and don't do it well)

ported games always suck, its just a shame devs are more used to 360 (more time with it)

+ its Dead Rising 2, the dev team behind it probably used the same "engine/structure" from dead rising 1 and changed things up, thus having it all in "360 code" - which never bodes well on PS3 =|

however, how this is a BAD thing I don't know. It works, and although in lesser quality, its still available on both consoles - more people enjoying the game.

@everyone using this as "proof" that PS3 "isn't" more powerful - you are confusing console HARDWARE with DEVELOPER COMPETENCE to PORT A GAME.
its stupid logic, as stupid yet as valid as saying - is there ANYTHING on 360 NEARLY as mind blowing as Uncharted2 or GOWIII or GT5? no, thus 360 is weaker > retarded arguments are retarded.

in the end, both console owners will enjoy the game =) (as opposed to it being exclusive)

Why is it "developer competence" when it comes to all the multiplatform games, but it's not developer competence when it comes to exclusives?

I mean, we know that Sony has more studios and that several of those studios are known for their technical know-how. Which developers under Microsoft's umbrella are really focused on pushing graphics? Lionhead? Rare?

Honestly, it's easy to see that Microsoft simply doesn't have the kind of studios that are interested in trying to really push graphics.

So why is it that if the PS3 gets a great looking exclusive the PS3 gets all the credit, but if the 360 gets a great looking multiplat it doesn't get the credit and it is all of a sudden because of "developer competence"?

That is an illogical line of reasoning in my opinion.

The problem is that everyone is still using a single Engine to port either PS3 code to the 360 or 360 code to the PS3. In the end, all they're doing is programming for the lowest common denominator which results in both having their faults and usually the PS3 looking worse off because they don't want to take any time to program for more than 3 SPEs.

They need to have two teams that will take the core data and modify it for the strength of each one rather than just cutting out the parts that don't work on one or the other.

Either that or at least put your core development on the PS3 with an engine that is able to translate from 7 SPEs to the 360s 3 cores with regard to data processing and memory management. Going the other way just isn't going to work and will result in more work with lesser results.
IHateYouFanboys  +   1962d ago
the PS3 only has 6 SPEs available to developers.

6 single threaded SPEs vs 3 dual threaded cores = both the PS3 and 360 have 6 threads running at 3.2Ghz.

and you do realise that these concurrent development games - theyre not ports - DO have different teams generally working on the different platforms, dont you? its not just one bunch of people making both.
talltony  +   1961d ago
Your wrong... let me explain why.
All the 6 spus on ps3 run at 3.2ghz.
The 360 has 3 cores that run at 3.2ghz. when the the 360 has 2 threads per core each thread would not run at 3.2ghz. It would be half that so 1.6 ghz per thread on 360 and 3.2ghz per thread on ps3.

Christopher  +   1962d ago
IMHO, it's not the developers. If the developers had time, they make both of them as good as they can for their respective platform. The problem is budget management by the upper management and the desire to design their games in a manner that makes them as equal as possible across both platforms.
mittwaffen  +   1962d ago
Capcom hates the PS3?
Dude please think logically.

The PS3 has strong points, but mainly the game needs to be catered in its favor. Meaning when you port a game designed to run on unified shaders (360/PC's--this is how Schools teach you to design) to PS3 with (vertex/pixel/SPU's) its slightly limited in rendering the same image (If the scene is limited by one of the three). But when you have scenes that uses all three equally (Very hard to do when its designed for unified) would solve this.

Its unlikely however as the first option is much more efficient in time/money for companies. Usually most MPlat comparisons the 360 will win because of this. But you can see that when a game (Exclusive usually) is made for the PS3 it clearly shines when utilized properly because of the additional bandwidth the SPU's allow; but people need to understand that because a exclusive (catered) game looks amazing shouldn't mean all Mplat should either, that is highly ignorant to state without knowing how the PS3 works.

This will likely be the case the whole gen (Since DEV costs have always been on the rise and most publishers push and push to keep them low) with the odd Mplat game being used for the PS3 (but even then, if the engine isnt up to the task the PS3 version might suffer, or the Xbox will be losing out on the additional SPU post processing effects (overlays/particle effects, filets etc might be more limited).

That is the most honest view you'll read on here, anything differently is most likely a little fan girl running his mouth.

The PC version is the superior version anyway so who cares?? The 360 fanboys can say what they like but the PC version blows them both away. Going through this though PS3 hasn't really done that bad and considering all capcom had to do for 360 version was port the original game engine they didn't have much to do. With PS3 version they had to port it to an entire new console. You forget it was on 360 first (the first game) so they ported that engine over and PS3 is NOT built the same way 360 is and vice versa that's why FF13 looked so bad on 360. The PC version seems like it was a new build though and looks dreamy.

Hell, given that they were already treating the PS3 version as a 2nd class port, why didn't they just delay it?

No way is this worse than Bayonetta. The loading times are bad on both the 360 and PS3, but at least they're not increased on the PS3 and the reduced textures don't suffer as much as they did in Bayonetta.

I'm definitely disappointed in the development results. It's 2010, they shouldn't be having this issues in developing for the PS3, let alone the 360 (framerate). Like I said two weeks ago, Capcom lacks in competent developers, IMHO.

it's ok, all PS3 consoles come with a hard drive, so a mandatory install isn't a problem. ¬¬ Dead rising started on the 360 it's common sense the xbox version would be the lead format and the PS version would be the port. 95% of the time ports are never quite as good as the lead. But almost as good when it comes to the PS3.

jambabie69, let me spell it out for you since it is sooo hard for you to understand:

- He is laughing about 200mb more on the DVD.
- He is laughing about a mandatory install.

There is extra content on the 360 version. Compression could be different on the PS3 version because of the install... who knows.

The fact is Sony put a hard drive in every single PS3 and let the devs decide if they want or need installs. This is an advantage as far as I am concerned.

Just because devs don't know how to code doesnt mean the console is inferior. I think that has been proven time and time again with PS3 exclusives blowing the 360 out of the water with graphics.

If this is too hard for you to understand... maybe a few more years of Sesame Street will do you good.

PS3 Blu-ray read rates are VERY VERY slow compaired to DVD9, that is why they force installs of the most used files to speed this up.

Could care less about this game to begin with. Loading times around every corner are enough to put me off. Any dev who cannot make a proper PS3 port in this day doesn't deserve the money IMO.

The reality is guys .. its a port and a bad one at that. Lowered resolution (30% less) and no vsynch and still chugs below 20 fps in some scenes. No visible uptick in improvements despite a heft HDD install -> which means, it probably performs much worse if just run off the disc.

Translation = No Buy

So I have it 1920*1080 with 4 AA ,blur, 16Aniso,..80 fps constantly on my pc ,.. to 56inch TV,.. still looks dated,.. Lol I could run qake3 arena 8k×6k pixles,.. does not mean a donkey dick,..

and to is not even AAA title,..79 at most,.. it is quite good,.. Im level 20 right now,.. and restarted 3 times,.. to get my stats up,.. gonna messup the motorcycle dude as we speak,..

Xbox360 exclusive owners are like mentally masturbating over bullshiet,.. we all know 360 is dead ,.. no AAA exclusives ,.. and ps3 shits on it graphically ,.. GOW3 and unchearted2 shit on any game on pc right now ,..

you played uncharted at 720p right?

so a 5770 with a decent pc will cost you roughly $600 and you can play crysis maxed with 1400*900 resolution. you obviously pulled that $2000 number out of your ****

ps3 version 576p with mandatory 2.8 gig install is unacceptable loss of texture detail lack of dlc screen tear

game should of stayed a 360 exclusive at least then they could of made it run better

should of realized it the entire time it was just a port never meant to be multiplat

Another example that the PS3 really is struggling now. All these comparisons are getting pointless because the 360 wins every time.
bustamove  +   1962d ago
....Did the 360 win with FFXIII, one of the many major releases in 2010? Answer that. Come on, you have enough bubbles to do that.

Please back up your statements. Unless you've played the PS3 version YOURSELF instead of depending on comparisons, then you have no room to talk.
plb  +   1962d ago
Only time the 360 wins is when it's used as a lead platform by devs who don't know how to properly code for PS3. PS3 exclusives speak for themselves. Show me a 360 game that can match the likes of GoW III, Uncharted 2, or GT5 just to name a few.

complete BS....the 360 had a much better lineup of games this year than the least for my tastes....I am not trying to say the ps3 sucks or that some people might not prefer the ps3's lineup this year, the issue i have with people like you is that you are being completely dishonest and acting like your opinion is law.

in my opinion there was way more exclusives i wanted on the 360 this year than on the ps3.
on the ps3 all i like this year is god of war 3....especially after lbp2 got pushed back.
on the 360 i like alan wake, mass effect 2, splinter cell conviction, fable 3, halo reach.
not to mention that i get most of my multiplats on the 360 too.

so this idea that the 360 has nothing to play is simply laughable to me. it's the ps3 that didn't have much to offer me this year.

but hey, to each his own. i'll respect your preferences if you respect mine.
Apotheosize  +   1962d ago
Most games start on the 360 and then get ported to the PS3, thats why we get bad ports. Only recently have developers been switching and starting to build first on the PS3. FF13, Vanquish are all games that first started on the PS3 then moved to the 360. But he is right, its only recently that this started to happen.
DOMination  +   1962d ago | Well said
@bustamove: Okay, FF13 'won' on the PS3 but that's only because the 360 version was rushed out 75% through the development on the PS3 version. This is the ONLY example of a PS3 version being better and it wasn't even a great game anyway!

What does Assassins Creed, Vanquish, Dead Space and Batman: Arkham Asylum have in common? All PS3 leads and yet EXACTLY the same on 360 (better even, in some cases) so stop using this as an excuse. The PS3 continues to struggle with multiplatform titles and ONE title out of the hundreds that have released does not suddenly change that.
360 man  +   1962d ago
wow you actually have a point there.

when theres a lead game on ps3. performance is usually the same on both consoles, but when its vice versa the ps3 always struggles to keep up.

if you disagree please state your reason. and NO Fanboyism
Roonie  +   1962d ago
vanquish on 360 has massive screen tear while ps3 has none.

Dragon age on ps3 looks better 360 looks washed out hence why gamespot gave 360 version lower score.

FF13 576p 3 disc with compressed files on 360.
bustamove  +   1962d ago
Excuses, excuses, excuses. Again. have you played those games side by side to make the comparison YOURSELF? How do you know that Eurogamer isn't doing this just to stir up flamebait? I played those games and they don't look as bad as the media are making them out to be.

Most of the games are optimized for both consoles, even the ones PS3 leads.

Dead rising 2 was made for 360 in mind so was bayonetta, FFXIII was made for PS3 in mind. Its hard to port such games for the other consoles.

Vanquish, deadspace are optimized for both consoles
jambabie69  +   1962d ago
have an agree
the ps3 fanboys have ONLY ONE GAME to boast about being "better" on their console they make love too.

i think its funny that 1 now equals the same as 100 to the sony fanboys. do you guys really want some one to list ALL THE MULTIPLATS THAT HAVE BEEN SUPERIOR ON THE 360?

lol it would take a full page. just accept that multiplatform games 99% of the time are better on 360, and move on. it is a shame that the ps3 is almost 4 yrs old and we are even having these comparisons still anyways.

to bustamove- excuses excuses excuses- you hit it there man, all i have seen from the sony camp on n4g is excuses, excuses, excuses.

some of you need to grow up seriously, and quit acting like it is YOUR JOB to protect/defend the ps3. serious question....HOW MANY OF YOU ON N4G GET A PAY CHECK FROM SONY TO DO THIS 24-7 LIKE YOU DO?

because even if the answer was x amount, it still wouldn't be enough for working 24-7 like you guys do!
gorillaurban  +   1962d ago
wwow you need to think b4 u speak forget to mention some other titles aka borderlands looked and played faster 4 example. but just so u can shut up with your 360 rant, look @ the developer of rage and he even states that the ps3 is quite a bit more powerful than the 360 fact. the reason why some like bayonetta look better are becuz they tranfer the codes aka port and lose small amounts of code fact. ps3 exclusives and more opted for,destroy 360 hands down. dont mistake me 4 a fanboy i aint broke like most so i do have both systems .
talltony  +   1962d ago
I have no problem whatsoever agreeing
That the majority of multiplats are better on 360 but I do have a problem with those ignorant people on this site implying that it's because the ps3 is graphically weaker console. Their are many reasons for a poor ps3 multiplat but that is not one of them.

I really did not mind that this game was a port and that the PS3 is clearly less impressive than the XBOX version... But the fact that Capcom decided to give the PS3 exclusive content that was not given to PS3 users has resulted In me not buying this game... If I hear great things I might rent it... Capcom needs to be taught a lession. I think PS3 users should do the same and not buy a Multiplatform game if they are short changing us.

You keep saying things like "Maybe people should play the games for themselves instead of depending on online comparisons to make a decision."

I own both consoles (all 3 actually) so I use sites like Digital Foundry (and others)so I can buy the "best" version.

Why wouldn't I want to spend my hard earned money on the superior version of a game? I would rather not guess at which version is better and end up buying the inferior one when all I have to do is check out some of these sites. Pretty simple actually.

If you own both consoles, the 360 version is the better version. If you only have a PS3, maybe rent the game first to see if you like the style of zombie action, and make your decision from that.

There are lots of fanboys going on here.

The game developers holding the PS3 down for more than 4 years and that will keep until Microsoft release their new powerfull console.

Don´t get me wrong, the 360 is a console with very limit hardware specification, like no Blu-Ray drive, less powerfull CPU/less faster and efficient RAM/Less powerfull GPU and after 4 years it has inbuild WIFI N.

This why multiplat programmers keep the PS3 versions less quality than the 360 counterpart, they will never use the PS3 the potential, this generation will win by the weakest console and that is the 360.

Even Insommaniac will bumb the PS3 version down becouse they have a agreement with Microsoft.

That´s why Sony use all their money and resource for their own interne studio´s with great succes and proof that no single multi developers can´t match it.

The Xbox360 GPU is more powerful. You missed the memo. It's also mre efficient.
It's the Cell CPU working in tandamn that gives the PS3 the edge.
And FYI. No console ever wins a generation based on power. Ever.
The PS2 won and it the weakest console on the Market.
The Xbox1 was never fully used for its power. The PS1 won its generation and it was weaker than the N64.
Atari2600 won and the intellivison was more powerful...then came the collecovision. It was the most powerful and it lost.

And the PS3 also is very hardware limited. The Xbox360 just a bit more.
When both these last generation systems can run JUST 10% of its games at 1080p running REAL AA at 60fps, then i will call them next generation systems. Until then, they are both limited.
The PS3 and PS3 both use 5+ year old GPU technology. They both use CPU technology that's dated. Only 512 megs of Ram FOR EACH SYSTEM. This is why all console games have a mix of low and high resolutions textures. You can only use so much Ram for it. 512 megs only is a joke.
Total bandwidth for the PS3 and Xbox360 totals less then a 5770 GPU from ATI.
That's what you call LIMITED. They are both limited.

You get actual HD gaming on the PC with frame rates above the locked 30fps or less seen on all console games.
No mods. Pay for online. And the PC version is cheaper. Looks better in all aspect and runs better.

The ps3 did what????? it curb stomped the 360? what are you 5 years old. This title is about the 101 games that look and play better on the 360 and your saying the exact oppisite.If the ps3 was so great then the devs now in the 4th and 5th year of making games for it would of come up with more then 3 or 4 exclusives that look and play better then the 360. Did you not realize that almost every hame that comes out on both systems either plays better or as good on the 360 and in most cases like this one its better by along shot.
jneul  +   1962d ago
@jazz it's because it was ported from 360 to ps3, the same happened with most ps2 games that went multi to the original xbox, however that did not mean that xbox less not as powerful as for graphics nothing on the xbox has done MSAA(16X AA) at 720p at 60fps, so nice try guys, and if you wonder what i'm talking about take a look at GOW III, and soon infamous 2 will be using GOW III methods
what about all the games that run better on ps3 like ff13, dragon age, and batman??
i am tired of trying to explain why to you all, you just can't understand that ps3 is not as gpu/memory reliant and has a different architecture

That's not at all true. The Xbox almost always had the better looking multi-platform games even though they were often ports.

That is why it is kind of silly to use that as an excuse for why multi-platform games usually look worse on the PS3.

If the PS3 was truly more powerful it should have no problem regularly producing the better graphics in multi-platform games. Especially after nearly 4 years on the market. Blaming it on developers is really dishonest and illogical.
