Loot Ninja has put in a lot of time with both the PS3 and Xbox 360 demos of Tiger Woods 08. Their average score is 5 under for the 3 holes (They did get a 7 under once). Comparing the two, they would have to side with the Xbox 360 version.
The 360 version clearly looks better to me. I have both my PS3 and 360 hooked up with HDMI to my 1080p DLP. The 360 version looks sharper with better colors. The PS3 version seemed a bit washed out with less defined lines and edges.
you just copied and pasted lootninja's comments and made it your own. Totally Extreme!!! Who is loot-ninja again? and Why is this news?
Since I'm the author of the original article, it's my own to being with
You disagreed with me because why??! I simply stated something obvious and then continued to ask who loot-ninja is.
Why is this news??? Because 360 vs. PS3 comparisons are the bread and butter of N4G. Every article that pits fanboys of both consoles against each other is an instant hit.
Now I see why this was posted. Which takes us back to why this is even considered news. GHEYYY!!!
how dare you form your own opinion. You can only say PS3 rocks on this web site.
did anyone else find the demo extremely EASY?
except the last hole
~better on the 360? not surprised
Yeah the demo is MUCH easier than the 07 game. I think it was needed for a mass market appeal. The Tour Pro mode still exists in the final game, which will give more difficulty for experienced gamers.
Well since it's not the PS3's fault but the Dev then I don't think this game is worth my time. I don't care for sloopy seconds.
regardless of which system it looks better on, its crap, i read a review on here yesterday that stated that the game is full of bugs and £uck ups! just your usual EA wank!
How the hell can you review demo versions of a game? obviously the complete noob who write it just wanted to start a flame war, which it will even tho 99% of the people who say 'ha xbox is better' probably wont even buy it...
$60?? pfft, just go buy some REAL golf clubs!
edit @: drunk pandas , why not go and read the other thread and you can read what they have said about the complete build not a demo, they list at least 6 faults with it, one of which is the fact you can put your face on a golfer as EA's server didnt work which was the main new feature of 08!
The Xbox 360 version has a bug that causes the game to freeze at one point during the Tiger Challenge, making it impossible to finish the game until EA releases a patch. I'm amazed that a bug of this nature was not found, especially since the bug seems to be affecting every copy of the 360 version.
A major crash bug found on the X360 version makes it .5 points worse than the PS3 version. 7>6.5. Oh noezzz. In other news TW07 is exactly the same as TW08 no matter what platform its on. This one is for all the conscious consumers who will no longer tolerate EA's shovel ware. Don't buy EA's garbage
"360 version is better" but there's a crashing bug that prevents you from completing the game!!!!!!!!!!
I just sharted!!
I can't believe how fvcking incredibly terrible that is. EA blows and you're a raging, flaming fanboy for giving the 360 props for looking better, when that version is fvcked up royally!!!
Why would they release a game that is flawed?
"So if you’re debating, based on the demos, I’d say get the Xbox 360 version. EA has stated they don’t put much effort into the PS3 versions, which explains the graphical differences."
(cough) even though the 360 version has the crashing bug, preventing you from finishing the game. (cough)
What fools they are at EA. This is just another EA title that I wont be buying. Lets see if they can go the whole hog and half arse Fifa 2008. I will have spent a total of zero Euros on EA games this year!
This company keeps one eye on its share price and the other on games development, is it any wonder that the games they release are borderline beta versions! Produce a game on one console cash in on the port over. Well I wont be suckered into buying any version of this game.
only one EA game ill be buying and that CRYSIS, luckily tho, EA have absolutely zero to with the development, which obviously shows!
Same with Burnout Paradise -EA is just publishing it
How can they side with the 360 version if it has a known bug that freezes up the console and does not allow you to even finish the game? Dumb comparison FTL! Btw, GS admitted that the PS3 version was better than the 360 version. Not that it means anything. Both versions suck!
Man im sooooo glad I stopped buying EA's games all together cause once again its just a waste of 59.99 plus 1 year of some poor coders life.... OWNED
the PS3 demo looked liked it still needed some work on the colours and the textures and alround it looked naff but saying that i had both versions last year and the PS3 looked a lot better but wont be buying the o8 version waiting for everybodys golf
Never said anything of the sort. Sure they said they'll work on getting the 360 version out of the door first and have gotten some of the games to run more complete but they never said they'll be graphiclly handi-capping the PS3 version.
The issues that are pointed out have nothing to do with EA these issues have to do with PS3 design and are problems with all games and many devs. lol
DON'T EVEN TRY AND BLAIM EA THIS IS A STANDARD DIFFERENCE AND HAS TO DO WITH HARDWARE NOT DEVS.
Bottom line is Tiger woods looks plays and feels better on the PS3 which is why GameSPot gave it a higher score than the 360 version. None the less the game is just terrible anyways. EA is just sucking right about now. I will wait for Mina no Golf 5, or as we yanks call it HotShots Golf 5!
LOL, You dissagree acting like idiots saying this graphical phenomena is EA exclusive when every game on both consoles gets tagged with these same Observations.
Blaim EA!, no one believes this is just an EA issue although its easy to blaim them making up excuses due to the fact EA is so well known and makes many games.
every game that EA has made has looked bad on ps3 its as simple as that, other developers can make great games which look good on both systems but EA is the only one who is having such problems developing for PS3, so yes they are being lazy and yes they are ruining their reputation...
yes they are well known...but do you know why that is...because they used to put a great ammount of effort into their games and make them look good but recently they half a@@ some of their releases and fail to adapt to changing technology
I hold my controller a little unconventionally for Tiger Woods Golf so I can hit more accurately and get more boost when I need it. It just won't work with the 360 controller.
You rabid Sony fans are fascinating. Not even worth repying to. Blaming EA for this. Even PS3 first party games or PS3 only games have the three shades of Brown art style and when a game does have some color its saturation is poor, faded, lifeless and has poor depth.
11.1 So they say others say different.
"360 version of it has a known bug that freezes up the console and does not allow you to even finish the game"
You are right. Many reviewers have commented on the poor color scheme of PS3 games. Lair is a good example of this. It probably has something to do with the GPU the PS3 uses.
As for Tiger looking better on 360. It comes as no suprise bc it is a port to the PS3. As ar most other 3rd party games
EGM on Lair: graphics were good and he said “its High Def” and he didn’t like the colors used,everything was brown and Grey. ...
I know you haven't played Lair on a HDTV in 1080p. I have and I own the game. It sucks that the reviewers didn't use the training mode to polish up their sixaxis skill because Lair is a game all PS3 owners should try out. (rent it first)
On topic: EA sucks. They'll get noone of my money till they steip their game way up.
Slightly off topic from the tiger woods games but I've just finished downloading the Nascar08 demo.
WTF how is EA getting away with this crap? With the power of this generation's consoles and this is the best they can do? On the PS3 demo they can't even be bothered to have a intro screen on the XMB!(actually from looking through the demo they've released none of them have one.) If ever a PS3 game looked like a PS2 one, here it is.
I personally thought from playing the 3 holes on the Tiger demo that this franchise is going backwards. Absolutely no improvement on graphics. This is a game that should I ever buy, it'll be from the bargain bin at some store. It is looking more and more like EA sports is becoming the Lada of games producers.
