Ubisoft has told IGN that the lackluster PS3 port of Assassin's Creed II will not be repeated for Brotherhood.
oooooooooooooooooo ok Great! Good news for the gamers on both/each platform/s.
I like when things are good for us gamers as a whole because it makes everything oh much sweeter! I can't wait for this game to come out!
no matter how ya play it! b happy n a bubble popping frenzy to any trollers ;) edit damit to late n for the record ac2 looked n played great on the ps3 doubt anyone could see much difference on the 360...
But we've heard this before too.. Not being pessimistic, but yeah, I hope they pull it of cause 360 to PS3 ports aren't always on par.
either they vsync it or no buy.
i hope thats the truth
the difference is usually sooo tiny. that you actual need so many types of java to help u see the difference. but when u compare the difference between GoW3 UC2 KZ2 to xbox games, you dont even need hd pic to know the that there is a huge difference
@ jack Burton - petty much?
...we've dumb down the graphics and deleted all the cool stuff and game play so now the PS3 can understand the code...at the expense of the Xbox 360. PS3 is ruining gaming this gen. First they try and make movies instead of games because the system is to hard to develop for and now everybody has just decided to ignore progress and settle for crappy games that the PS3 won't have a fit trying to play. We'll see how bad Mass Effect turns out in 10 wks or so. Poor Bioware must be pulling their hair out right now...lol
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! That comment makes your name ironic. LMAO!! OT: AC2 on the PS3 looked fantastic to me. I am unaware of any issues really.
thats the same rubbish they said about ac2. they even demonstrated it at e3 on the ps3, to show that they boyfriend and girlfriend now. we will see, but like grady said, we all know how this ends. who's going to get get the short end of the italian stallion? we already know the answer right
That's surprising because this is the first I'm hearing the Assassin's Creed 2 was vastly inferior on the PS3.
The problem is that not only PS3 ports are worse then their X360 counterparts. The problem is that even games developed first and primarly on the PS3 (Tekken, Assassins Creed, etc) are superior on their X360 ports. The only ones to blame is Sony, for promising us a superior console with DA CELL, and us for actually falling for this marketing ploy.
Really? Final Fantasy XIII disagree's with your statement. Also DA CELL does as well because if you take a step back and look at games such as Uncharted 1 and 2, God of War III, Killzone 2 and 3, InFamous 2 and notice that 360, the supposed easier to develop for system which has a better GPU and multiplats, has failed to even achieve the graphics of Uncharted 1 from 2007, you'll realize how stupid you sound.
Yes, i suppose developers like insomniac, Sucker Punch, Guerilla and naughty dog should "BLAME" sony for allowing the gaming industry to push graphics, gaming and performance to its limits. Take your 2 bubbles and jump of a cliff, troll.
This has been said many times over but apparently you either didn't get the memo or you simply don't get it: If you really want to blame something, don't blame the machine but rather the lazy developers who can't properly work with the PS3's architecture.
less entertainment on N4G D'OH!
i don't know about this lackluster port they are talking about. i plat AC2 for PS3 and the game looked absolutely stunning with NO problems whatsoever. i didn't even have any hiccups while playing.
now just imagine a better looking game and you got the 360 version
Yet further proof that the differences we see between ports of games have zero to do with the hardware and everything to do with developers being lazy. Here you've got Ubisoft admitting that yeah, we didn't focus on the PS3 version until the end then we ran out of time. We won't make that mistake again and instead we're going to make sure it's right at all stages of development. That's the way it should always be done if you had any respect for the product you were putting out.
lol more lazy devs? according to the fanboys on N4G the only developers that aren't lazy are the first party ps3 devs who only have to worry about one version of a game and don't have to worry about release dates(GT5?) that's complete bullshit, i guarantee you that multiplat devs will always spend more time/money on the ps3 version due to its complicated architecture
If they put in the effort they could probably make it a bit above the 360 one, most of the time whent he dev puts in the extra time and effort they can get more outta the Ps3.
They could, but I mean....they really have no reason to. Unfortunately, most developers are in it for the money, not for the sake of passion/quality. The Assassin Creed devs seem to be pretty skilled, so they might be an exception, but don't forget, ACII played better on the 360.
Not if they're porting from 360 to PS3 again. It'll never be the same. But we'll see how they do.
they could definetely put it above the 360. however they dont have the time and money, which is the bad side of being hard to code for. it can make better graphics if you spend enough time on it. just takes time..
both systems are on par with one another
its that they cant
They do have the money and time, though they only care about pushing it out fast enough to make more money. I've learned by now if you want to care about graphics then just look at exclusives, as multiplats tend to not try to max out the capabilities of the consoles and just make things about equal so they can make more money.
^^^^^ how do you know the dev team has the time and money? maybe they dont get the time needed by ubisoft ceo's
awwww so its not gonna be better like always?? :(
nice knowing either fanbase wont get shafted
We all know how this ends.
Ow, somebody actually makes an effort to do a proper job for the money they ask. Pity it's not standard but an exception.
Guys, most of the times when a "jouranlist" says, the 360 version is superior they are lying! and i know this for a fact because for big name games i actually do buy both versions.. The reason? because i have friends that only own a ps3 or 360 and i like to play with all my friends. Ok you know how recently, all the "jouranlists" said "Teh 360 version of Medal of Honor is better" they told a bold faced lied like the scum they are. Infact its opposite. I even had it running on 2 T.Vs, side by side. The 360 version of Medal of Honor has major screen tearing and the colors dont look as vibrant. The PS3 version has no screen tearing the colors pop more. I will say the load times are longer on the PS3 but who cares. This was a BLATANT lie, the 360 version has the screen tearing. Same goes for RDR, RDR looked fantastic on the PS3 and i saw no difference whatsoever.
It's a conspiracy! Everyone, gather around and put on your tinfoil hats.
If what you say is true, why would Ubisoft make an announcement like this?
The 360 version of Medal of Honor runs at a higher framerate than the PS3 version. Proof: http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... http://www.eurogamer.net/vi... The 360 version of Red Dead Redemption runs at a higher framerate & a higher resolution than the PS3 version. Proof: http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... http://www.eurogamer.net/vi... I love both the 360 & PS3 but... You were saying there were no differences??
get a life seriously, its just a god dammed freakin game if your ohh so called xbox is soooo superior to the ps3 will that make you happy? if version x is superior to version y? like that? nice to an idiot ryt? wow.
what does that even mean
Like more vibrant
Dude, I just finished MOH on the PS3. While I cant compare it to the 360 version because I prefere the PS3, there is a fair bit of tearing. Also the frame rate does suffer some hits. Not to the point of detracting from the game, I thought it was an awesome, if short, experience, but dont spout bullshit. You make yourself look bad. Accept the consoles for what they are and move on buddy.
I wonder what that's running on in the video. Because the screen is tearing badly.
and i thought AC2 looked bad on 360 AC1 had better graphics imo
Tbat's great news for PS3 owners, it's bout time they start being on par.
if xbox gets a game which has graphics like uncharted 2 then we can start saying the xbox is starting to get on par with ps3
So why should we be interested? Make the animations, textures, lighting, sound as good as Uncharted 2 and then we'll talk. The trailers for AC2 put me off. I was like.... "Aren't you missing a few dozen frames of that jumping animation?"
While I dont care I would like to know what the issue is. Are dev's programming for the lowest common denominator or is the ps3 still a pain in the arse to code for or maybe its a little of both??
Ezio = Mario2.0
For crying out loud; the Ps3 should have the vastly superior version. Damn multiplats. On par with the 3.....
These STUPID articles & stories always trying to make the PS3 look bad.
PS3 version of AC 2 looked great, more importantly palayed great. Better can only be good. Thats all.
they said the exact same thing about AC II telling us that they wouldnt repeat the half assed port of ACI... guess what...! ;)
yeahhhhhhh right because this games has awesome graphics... I friend got in the Beta... its crap looking.... and apparently pretty boring.
Guys I was at E3 and they said to everyone that ACBH , GR future solider , Driver are all leading on the PS3 to insure even qaulity on both consoles
i didn't have any problems with AC2 on PS3, I thought it was fine. I never played it on 360, but I'm sure it wasn't THAT mush difference. It's not like there were any game-breaking frame rate drops or anything. Anyway, I'm not a huge fan of the series, they're a bit too repetitive for me to go buy, but it was a great rental.
ACII was a lackluster port on PS3? I didn't have any idea. I never saw any comparisons but I wound up having the game on PS3 and I thought the graphics were great, the load times didn't seem extensively long, I didn't notice any frame-rate drops or screen tearing or anything, so what could have been so bad about it?
I never heard any reports of AC2 being inferior on the PS3. Then again, why would Ubisoft admit to it?
Baught it for the PS3 when the game was first released played it and enjoyed it and finished it. I picked up Assassin's Creed II for 19 bucks at Best Buy for the 360 and currently enjoying it aswell I cannot wait for Brotherhood.
let the product speak for its self once released
The only problem the PS3 version had was screen tearing. I'm playing the AC Brotherhood beta and there seem to be no screen tearing anymore.
I did not know there was anything wrong with the PS3 version of AC2.
wtf? is it trying to imply that the ps3 can't usually keep on par with the xbox? in my experience, my ps3 is FAR better than my xbox... if anything, it should be "can xbox fanboys NOT be so insecure about their own console that they HAVE to degrade everything around them every 5 seconds"??
