GS:This rich, action-packed space adventure is immensely entertaining on its new platform, though the transition isn't wholly smooth.
Lesser visuals, and a little bit more content for the price of a new game? No wonder. Your best bet is to buy an Xbox 360. You'll get to play the better version and you can play with your friends. /
theres only 1 part in the game where he said the visuals were lacking...and it was 1 of the DLC levels.. ps3 version is identical to 360 version... so calm down kid
for a couple graphical glitches in the DLC dont spend £40 on the game noooo no no no by ubiquitious's logic spend £200 on a 360,£30 on me2 on multiple discs and that way your better off? where have the smart fanboys disappeared to? seriously
woah woah woah... ps3 version is identical to 360 version? No, That is a lie. @ below, Indeed.. but it is a shame that the PS3 version also has some terrible anti-aliasing issues.. which is shown in that pic. As well as frame rate issues. Edit 2: I'm not talking about the pic though, See this video here: http://www.eurogamer.net/vi... Notice X360 version is at 30fps all the time?
@enkeixpress Yes that is a lie, the PS3 version has better shadowing, texturing, blood effects and lighting in some places http://www.play-mag.co.uk/w... http://www.play-mag.co.uk/w... are you serious? Look at both pics again. The aliasing is identical, the 360 screens poor shadowing is covering part of the jagged surface is all xD Either your blind or you're grasping at straws, the 360 version has frame rate issues too btw. [email protected] above "but it is a shame that the PS3 version also has some terrible anti-aliasing issues.. which is shown in that pic" "I'm not talking about the pic though" Lolwut? Notice how I never said it didn't have frame rate issues, only that the 360 version has frame rate issues too. Read up on it in the face-off http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... they're both far from perfect performance wise.
the best bet is to enjoy this game on any of its 3 platforms
well said. But I don't think anyone can get through to people on this site.
Actually most of my friends own a PS3.
Yeah, like it makes any difference for a single player game.
LoL @jammydude comment. Genius, the Xbox pic was taken before the mec shoot the girl, that is why there is no blood.
Guess you missed the bit where I said "better" blood effects, not that they were non-existant in the 360 version, "genius" In fact you're such a "genius" you replied to the wrong comment....
I get pointing out the DLC issues... but in a comparison of this to the 360, you gotta realize that it's in addition to what you got, not in place of. So, while it may have some very minor graphical glitches on one of the DLC and Kasumi isn't in from the start (on any platform), I see no reason to score it as low as they did in comparison. Yes, it was a different reviewer, but that reviewer represents GameSpot and his score should be reflective of what others have scored other games, IMHO. Anyway, I'm just glad that BioWare is working to get their games out to as many people as possible and hope this is a step in the right direction to seeing some stronger WRPG games on all platforms.
X-bot, your programming stinks. That is all.
since i bought ME1-2 on xbox360 in November 2010. great great games every must play ME seres is a must play by itself
Can't wait to give this game a shot!
It's been quite a long time.. but It's great that PS3 users can finally play this gem of a title..
Best Armor = Blood Dragon Best Weapon = Geth Pulse Rifle Best Heavy Weapon = Collector Particle Bean/Arc Projector Best Companion = Archangel =)
I've found the Collector to be greater than Blood Dragon most of the time that I've played. But, some of the other armor pieces you buy during gameplay tend to be even better, especially if it increases my ammo capacity with heavy weapons. I become heavily reliant on heavy weapons on harder difficulties. And, Kasumi is tied with Archangel for best companion for me. I tend to take two of Archangel, Kasumi, or Samara. Samara's loyalty ability is great against all enemies and she also has the better bio ability lineup along with assault rifle proficiency.
Graphics seem to be the same overal, with that overlord DLC being teh only thing that sounds like theres noticeable difference. All in all a great port.
it's best to wait for Digital Foundry or Lens of Truth to do their respective analysis b4 coming to a decision *edit* Digital Foundry said the PS3 version has a lower framerate than the 360. Bioware didn't even use the extra space on the bluray disc. Both versions are the same size. Bioware just plain lied about it being the best version yet or whatever....
It's more than obvious at this point that UE3 caters to X360 hardware better. It's a shame that it's such a popular third party option considering that making an equal port is almost impossible with it.
this version is as Bioshock, inferior PS3 late port i will get it on summer just for the trophies, and at bargain price
You are an example of a person that jumps the inferior bandwagon. Look at the facts instead of being blinded by your fanboysm. Mass Effect 3 for ps3 is a BETTER game than the 360 version because of an updated graphics engine (a graphic inconsistency on a small level doesn't count), and a better deal overall since the game includes all the DLC. There should be NO ARGUMENTS about this FACT. People who debate this are either stupid or 360 fanboys. For once bioware made a superior port of their game unlike Dragon Age
ubiquitious Did you mean lesser visuals as in the PS3 version has blood and shadows missing from the 360 version. Oh i get it, your a troll.
The reviewers from Gamespot and Eurogamer are just lying are they ? Get over it, its a year old game and a multiformat, so it's gonna run better on the 360, RDR, Mafia2 and the list carries on into 2011. I just stick to exclusives on my PS3, everything else is just better on 360, that's why I have both consoles.
