The Digital Foundry blog at Eurogamer returns with round 28 of their PS3 vs. X360 technical game comparisons.
The Xbox 360 is without doubt, the best console this gen. Thank you MS.
in summary the PS3 and 360 are pretty much equal in this comparison I guess
these are still going on? WOW. I gave up comparing them a long time ago. Maybe that was back when i got both. I guess some will never be satisfied with 2 great consoles this gen. It is like highlander to them. "There can be only 1"
Digital Foundry is fully satisfied with both consoles. They are tech freaks who look into how the consoles differ, though, because they are both based on different firmware/hardware, etc. They are not trying to say which one is better (they pretty much agree that they are nearly identical, on a technical level, besides blu-ray) and compare and contrast how different developers meet hurdles in game development on both consoles. No, they are not here to perpetuate a pathetic console war, but to explore the technical aspect of gaming. Anyone who cannot see that either can't read, or is a fanboy.
@kancerkid Totally agree I love reading Digital Foundrys comparisons. They have great information about the technologies being used in the games and how its implemented on both systems. Not like Lens Of Truth which is all about feeding the flame war.
@ Maj0r Too bad the games they've chosen for the comparison are garbage and not worth a weekend rental.
You've obviously never played a PS3 exclusive then.
is playing just exclusives a requirement to being a gamer? Good ps3 exclusives, yes...just as there are good 360 exclusives. Get over it.
I wouldn't say playing exclusives is a requirement for anything. But since majority of the best games are exclusive on one console or another...everyone sort of does it lol. And yes there are a few good 360 exclusives...yup I agree.
Did darthv72 ignore the context? Oh yes he did! The response by jessupj was to Terror_B. No one said anything about gamers being gamers.
The ps3 exclusives use up a lot more power than the multiplatform games. They have no limits of power but the 360 has limits and that will be forza 4.
Of course not darth, I never said that. PS3 exclusives are just of a higher caliber than 360 exclusives in general. Of course that's an opinion, but most people would come to that conclusion if they really thought objectively about it
shame that the the 360 beat the Yugo GV as the most unreliable consumer product of the century. It's about as great as it is reliable. I would have never though I would see the day that ANYONE would thank a company for screwing them over with a broken product. THat is like thanking a chef for adding excrement to the dish of food you just ate.
"The Xbox 360 is without doubt, the best console this gen. Thank you MS" You should fucking blush saying that about any multinational profit based organisation. edit: Excellent post Darthv72. Shame that stupidity seems to blind a lot of people to countless games potential or value - regardless of console.
Yes because they have the best games right? Thats what your referring to when you say 360 is the best right? Regardless of everything thats ever been shown about ps3 being the more powerful console, when it comes down to it...it's game quality that matters. And no...360 is simply not the best. It's good enough to still be alive, but not the best.
Its funny to see a post like after all the 360 give us, no good exclusives (excep Halo and gears), RODD, controllers that use batteries, no free online, limited audio settings, fake motion controller, no future plans (im talking about the lack of games for 2011) what else what ohhh yeah by now you should know that lazy devs made ppl like you believe that 360 its the thing with loads of buggy multiplat titles thank god bioware exist to show those lazys (ninja Theory, etc) how the job is done...
Terror_B by looking at all your disagrees I have to agree, apparently not too many people are playing what they think is the superior system, weird people on here claim the PS3 is the best console but always on here all day long, they don't realize what their doing to the sales of the PS3 by doing this.
Ohh thats nice Thanking a company for screwing the consumers with high percentage failure rates and taking them 5 years to release a more reliable one.
ps3 multiplats gimped because of 360 limititations.
LOL WHO PLAYS THAT JUNK? YOU? THEY WERE ALL RATED 6 OR 7/10. EXCLUSIVES IS A CONSOLES REAL POTENTIAL AND YOUR 360 HAS NONE. NO AWARDS FOR 360 IM SORRY. YEP MULTIPLATS LOOK WAY BETTER THAN A 360 EXCLUSIVE.
Stop, please. I can't take more comparisons!
Just insert Killzone, Uncharted, GOW, Heavy Rain etc. into this conversation to make these comparisons moot.
Even just one of them, could be the decisive factor :D
Why do they compare useless games so often? If the point of a comparison is to see which is better, why eliminate the things that make either thing better?
If you take Wade, James, and Bosh from the Miami Heat they aren't much better than the New Jersey Nets. Is that how they should be compared?
hey it's been about 5 years and 90% Multiplatformers still look better on the 360 I'm sorry try again
exclusives don't count because there exclusive and sony owns the rights which means there never see light on the 360/Wii let alone the PC
Why do people go on about 60fps when even at 24fps games run smoothly. Obviously it's great to advance this technology but people throw these numbers about as though they are gospel.
That's not true. When I play on PC there is a HUGE difference between 30fps and 80 fps. Maybe some people are biologically not able to see the difference though, I don't know.
The first vid was hardly unplayable and was running rather smooth wouldn't you say, even when it dipped to 24fps. People are on here all the time slagging games off when they can't keep at least a steady 30fps, why? If these videos show anything its that the difference is negligible.
can't we all just get along ?
I wish but hey this is like a world war in the gamming world
Who cares? Enjoy the console of your choice, and stop wasting time ripping somebody elses choice.
- Splatterhouse - Nail'd - James Bond 007: Blood Stone - TRON: Evolution - Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Those games are truly the benchmark of what is technically possible /s
i know there were many multi plat games that look better than those. Best examples are vanquish and Castlevania and both have been proven to be slightly better on the PS3. I said slightly fanboys which means very little.
THIS IS THE ULTIMATE REASON WHY I HAVE A PS3
Exclusives- thats the point of buying dif. consoles. If you dont have exclusives then whats the point of buying a ps3? All xbox has is halo and gears, 90% of xbox gamers has more multiplats than exclusives.
Graphics- I want realism in gaming, Wii fans in thier heart wants a game with amazing graphics. Xbox has decent graphics but not those heart stopping visuals UNCHARTED GT5 AND KZ3 has.
Everything in box- Controller, charger, free online service, power brick inside ps3.
Cost- No pay for online, no buying batteries over and over or buying a charger that cost you half the money to buy a game.
ITs simple as that, I dont even know why there is a round 28, it should have stopped at ten
"Wii fans in thier heart wants a game with amazing graphics"... Wii gets ragged on so much here. If your a fan of Wii its not because of 'teh graphicz'.
Yes indeed so BUT they have low tech motion accuracy with a terrible CPU and GPU that most games thatll come out will suck cuz of the lack of tech and accuracy and graphics which are three major factors. If you have low tech, you are restricting your gameplay abilities.
This is the ultimate reason why I have a PS3 and a 360 Games. Novel idea isn't it?
This belongs to sony because a ps3 can be our ps4 that is how powerful the ps3 is, plus blu-ray2 and the external graphics update.
stupid article. They should just compare exclusives between the 2. Exclusives are designed to take advantage of the hard ware capabilitys of one console
anyways i thought about it a bit and since i am a PS3 only owner (but i used to own a 360 check me out on xboxlive i am Fallendamnation with a gamerscore of over 11000 points so i did invest a lot of time into the 360). Anyways i got rid of my 360 because i prefer PS3 games and the dualshock 3 controller plus the free online over the 360. And i really dont feel the need to own more than one console in this house i get my game fix from my PS3
And i agree with you sure what an incredible point you made. WTF why am i replying to myself?
you know talking to oneself is never a good thing.
The PS no doubt has a slightly better set up from a graphics stand point but it isnt as big as most make out. As for the other comments about the PS having large untapped reserves that is just rubbish as the graphics and CPU in the PS are way dated and most likley running at there full potential with the PS exclusives .

The Xbox 360 is without doubt, the best console this gen.
Thank you MS.
If this was true, how come the 360 has no games?
The best console is determined by the amount of quality games on the system and sorry but the PS3 absolutely destroys the 360 in this department.
Go to metacritic and count how many games are above 75 on the scale for both the 360 and the ps3. Then give it a rest.
360 CAN BARELY EVEN HOLD THESE GAMES ON DISK. LIKE 200-300MB LEFT. WHEREAS PS3 HAS GB LEFT TO USE. MULTI GAMES DONT LOOK GOOD DUE TO 360 LIMITATIONS AND FUCKS UP PS3'S END. BUILD THE GAME ON PS3 AND PORT TO 360 YOU DUMB FUCK DEVS.
They do. Most multiplatforms have to lead on the ps3 so they can get it to work respectably before porting to the 360 and the games still run better. Tough break.
