When you take into account the DLC situation, there's a damn good reason why the PS3 version isn't selling as well. Just PS3 gamers showing some sense and initiative is all.

I'm sure a good part of that is for the reason you gave. Bethesda even sucker punched the PS3 fanbase by waiting to announce the move only days before the game releases. I'm sure some people are picking up the PS3 copy unaware that they are being toyed with again. Honestly I put a cancel on my pre-order when I heard about it because of the way it was handled.

Actually it's more to do with how, Amazon.com only facilitates America, and the 360 install base is 2:3 over the PS3s, in America.

Very, very few people are going to look at DLC for the game, before they purchase, and even then small only a minority actually have both consoles to be able to choose from.

Why are people so defensive about sales? It doesn't matter!

Oh for f'n Christ's sake, who gives a rat's arse? Really, shouldn't it just matter that people are enjoying a good game and not where they're playing it?

Boody-Bandit2586d ago

In the real world? Yes
On N4G? No

TagMeIn2586d ago

But you as if you're saying Amazon is an unreliable source. Why is this?

I bought my copy for PS3, but I also have a 360. I'm not sure which console has the better version. 360 has AA but PS3 appears to have better textures. So far no screen tearing or other graphical issues.

Blacktric2587d ago (Edited 2587d ago )

Just wondering, did you played the PS3 version of Fallout 3? If so, how New Vegas performs against it in terms of performance? I noticed constant FPS drops for PS3 version in a gameplay video I've watched. One of the 360 gameplay videos had a similar problem but it wasn't constantly happening.

Christopher2586d ago (Edited 2586d ago )

There's not as much screen tearing, but there are occasional stutters as you move throughout the world. In general, a lot of the issues seem to be in the design and not in the engine, such as camera angles when talking to some people.

Overall, I'd say it's a very slight increase over the original. Not up to par with other Open World games like RDR on the 360, but it's still a fun game and even better this one has a lot more reference to FO and FO2 if you take the Wacky Wasteland trait when you create a character, which is definitely worth it if you're a fan of those games. Kind of sad that they had to put in a trait to enable the references in the game because they were split on the decision. When in doubt, developers, you always want to make classical references to the former iterations of an IP. It's what your fans desire and new gamers aren't going to be thrown off just because they don't get the reference.

I only played Fallout 3 for a short time on PS3. I bought it originally for 360 and completed it. The PS3 version I bought was the GOTY, but by the time I bought it and started, I realized I didn't want to go through the storyline again since I put over 100 hours into the 360 version.

I've been playing New Vegas for a couple hours, should've been longer but I didn't know what kind of character I wanted to create, and I forgot to save a few times and then died and had to start back a ways... but I don't notice any low FPS.

seen them on both consoles at the same time and the ps3 version is king all day i play wii/ps3/pc/ds i hate microsoft since the xbox 1 because they basically bought there way into the industry ie why microsoft have crap 1st party devs compared too sony and Nintendo have the best talent in the buisness end of but ps3 is better than 360 in my eyes wii/ps3 are a good match in any household 360 is for idiots that want to play on LIVE

Well it's good to know that you're a nonbiased source :)

yippiechicken2586d ago

coolstuff2587d ago

Wow I guess exclusive DLC really does make a difference.

SuperStrokey11232586d ago
