NowGamer: Dead Space 2 hits consoles this week, so NowGamer pits the 360 and PS3 versions of the game side-by-side to see which version is visually superior...
Here we go again...
Ha, yep, although you'll have to be pretty anal to actually look at the comparison, I've never seen one so poorly laid out.
Hate these things but I agree nowgamer have the worst layout for these things.
Hands down the worst screenshot comparison I've ever seen.
except the brightness setting on ps3. But PS3 is getting Extraction with Move control. so in essence, PS3 is getting 2 games for 1 price.
It's a decent port so will consider picking it up.
@DualConsole Uh...yeah in a way.
they look exactly the same, well done viseral games.
I clicked on link: "Where are teh screens?" Ah not another link... *click*: *Me sees tiny pictures* - rage quit -
If it comes from EA expect them to be identical, EA does the job right in terms of graphical equality. It's hard to believe but I think EA has become the best 3rd party publisher this gen, I have more of their games than anything.
They look fairly identical for once. Still going to get it on PS3 though.
me three for dead space extraction
me four since you get a free rail shooter
I was going to, but I played the first on PC with headphones. And nothing beats that experience in my opinion.
me five for extraction..
woah they are actually identical. nice!
They're the same. Maybe people can stop with this kind of thing.
If Sony stop saying that the PS3 is as powerful as Skynet. Every one of these comparisons is a slap in the face for Sony. Even when they look the same the 360 wins a moral victory. Because its always portrayed as the underdog.
not for multiplats
well if developers made the game to the strengths of each system you will see the ps3 version will be superior but they are not going to waste money doing two different versions of the same game and hence they try to make it look equal on both platforms to not piss anyone off. so stop with the moral victory bs because they are not going to spend time on one system to make it look superior like exclusive studios do. Please show me an exclusive game that looks as good as god of war 3 or uncharted 2 on xbox and then we will talk. Geara of war is the only game that comes close.
@ The Meerkat.....Sony saying their system is powerful has nothing to do with multiplatform games. If I made a game multiplat I would try to make it identicle. WHY? So both MS and Sony will have the same game for their customers. Now if Sony says I want to make a game just for Playstation thats when they can brag about how powerful the PS3 is because they could make that game using all the PS3's capabilities. So thats why you get games like KZ, GOW, Uncharted etc, and thats why Sony can say the PS3 is powerful.
whats more of a slap is that theres barely a 360 game that looks better than old ps3 exclusives ex: MGS4, Uncharted.
when your faulty console can reach killzone 3 and uncharted 3 level call me please.
"moral victory"... oh dear. I'll be getting an identical game on PS3, with HD Dead Space Extraction... Sounds like I come out better off, sunshine.
"Even when they look the same the 360 wins a moral victory. Because its always portrayed as the underdog." When it comes to multi-plats the PS3 is always the underdog. I enjoyed your silly little impassioned speech though lol.
Not as powerful as skynet, just more powerful than 360....
Meerkat !!! llliissteennnn toooo mmeeee veryyyy careefullllyyy and ttryyy tooo gettt it throouughhh that thickkkk skulll offf yourrrss !!!! multi-platform games do not utilize hardware to their full potential because its on both platforms meaning they both have their advantages and dis-advantages that is why multi-platform games look the same.... on the other hand exclusives take advantage of full hardware capabilities .... like you see with god of war 3, uncharted 2, killzone 2, etc. DOOOOOO U UNNDDERRSTTANNNDDDD ??? YESSS ? MEERRKAT !!! DOOOO U UNDERSTANDDDD ??? MEERKAT !! X360 IS LEEESSSS POWERFULLLL THAN PS3 !!! DOOOOO U UNNNDEERRSTAANNNDD ??? MEEERKATTT !!! LOL
LOOOLLLL meeeeeeerrrrkkatttt sttayy withh mee ...I hope you understand ... dooo uuu undeerrsttannnddd ? UU MMUUSTTT unnndeerrstannddd mmicccrooossooffttt isss brraainnnwassshiinggg uuuuu !!!! muhahahahaaa
It's funny that the myth of PS3 being weaker on multiplats still exists after all these years. What is this even based on? Back in 2007, the majority of reviewers agreed, multiplat games were better on the 360. In 2008 things started to even out and when we looked at average scores, multiplats on the PS3 and 360 pretty much tied. In 2009, things shifted with the majority of multiplats scoring the same or higher on the PS3. During this time we had sites like Eurogamer and Lens of Truth running comparisons of a fraction of games and for most of their comparisons we simply had to take them at their word because the changes they were talking about were mostly imperceivable unless hooked up and run through special software. Occasionally we had games with noticeable differences, like Final Fantasy or Bayonetta, but these games were few and far between. Yet despite what the vast majority of reviewers are telling us over and over again, that the PS3 is most certainly not getting the short end of the stick overall, there is still a segment of the gaming community that choses to ignore hundreds of professional reviewers opinions in favor of sites run by 3 or 4, twenty somethings that talk about differences so unnoticeable that the average gamer doesn't have a hope in hell of ever verifying if what these people are saying is actually true - and ignoring the fact that they only do these comparisons on a handful of multiplats released each year. I just don't understand how this idea has persisted over the years despite the evidence to the contrary.
i'm glad to know i'm not the only one who is sick of these retarded comparisons.
Why do they make us click on a small screen shot, just to click on another small screen shot to finally direct us to the full sized one?!?
Hits, hits, hits.
They seem to be identical. EA has experience, doesn't surprise. Probably pick this game up in a few months, still working on Demon's Soul and RDR. How I long for the day's of undergrad when I could game all the time, now with work, a gf and other responsibilities my beloved hobbie has taken a back seat. The good old days, lol.
Demon's Souls any day to be honest. I firking love that game!
Caligamer or anyone have a friend ring they can drop for me so i can get my platinum? I messed up on getting it and dont want to play NG++++ to just get that ring. Anyone please ;)
What is a friend ring? I don't think I have that yet, lol. You talking about Demon's Souls? I barely found out how to use spells last night, hahahaha. That game is a beast.
in the beginning of the game you have to go talk to the monumental and accept his offer. Then at the end of the game if you have Pure White world tendency in the nexus he will give you a ring. I missed it on my first play thru and accidentally hit no instead of yes on his mission so i screwed my self. Now im afraid ill play a whole 3rd time and not get it since i killed everyone in the nexus at the end of my first playthru unknowing that it carried over so im in black int he nexus and im pissed lol. I hope you get it and not get stuck like me one ring froma trophie. I have beaten it twice so to correct myself NG++ If you can get the Firestorm spell from the 3-3 boss the yellow demon soul you can pretty much kill every boss in 5 seconds that are weak to fire.
they're the same EA knows what they're doing
I feel safe with the 360 version I won't look at the pics because I'm getting the 360 version. Watch I will get disagrees while #2 gets agrees.
You must have a self-esteem problem if you are worried about people disagreeing with you. @below Skyward did not whine about getting disagrees. You did, and that is why you got my response.
It's not that you feel safe loll it's because you have no other choice... while we enjoy extraction
I feel safer with the one that includes an extra game.
Yep Number Two got 11 agrees and left alone I get disagrees and kids complaining about it.
You come in here knowing that you would get attention for saying you'll get the 360 version and then complain about the disagrees and responses you get? Are you bored?
now if you had just said they both look identical and you will get the 360 version and stopped right there you wouldn't be getting disagrees. but you had to use the word "safe" to make it look like 360 version will always be the best no matter what and because of that we decided you were a troll and disagreed.
he's just jealous that the ps3 is getting more attention these days. anyway, i may buy this today but i'm not sure yet.
U ever think people disagree with your whining and victim role. I know i gave youa disagree for it.
I did as well. I get bored to tears when people play the victim role. The world doesn't owe you anything people.
I know, its crazy how much these guys hate the 360 and MS.
Identical enough. Thread closed.
Except it won't close... ...it never seems to close.
Doesn't the PS3 version run in native 1080p and the 360 version upscaled to 1080p? Or am I wrong about that?
you are wrong, neither is 1080
So why does it display at 1080p on my TV? (PS3 set to all resolutions, not set to force 1080p upscale)
Who cares....You can rarely ever tell which version is better by screen shots alone anyway. waste of our time..
I get sick for those useless multiplat comnparing, we all know that multiplat always the same.
LOL, who cares.. Both look identical.. But there's one with Dead Space: Extraction tho'.. ;)
frame rate is more smoother on 360 version..
But not on the free 360 version of Extraction. *wink*
Yeah...that's a real prize. Lol. I played it on the Wii. Awful.
lol No it isn't.
The first Dead Space looked a little better on PS3 and it looks like the trend continues. Same thing with Dante's Inferno also. Visceral obviously takes pride in PS3 development and that's without the added bonuses they keep giving the PS3
Identical. PS3 version please!
The Xbox version is just a tad darker. Other than that, pretty much identical.
Looks exactly the same to me. I'm getting this game soon, LOVED the first one. Playing it at night, all lights turned off and volume up is the only way to go when it comes to Dead Space =D
Can we all just come together and enjoy a game? Just this week, we don't have to hate each other's systems. DS2 seems to be a good translation to both consoles. Just once let's play the game and wish each other well. *Receives a slap to wake up*
Really great game. The heavier emphasis on characterisation is wonderful and i've found myself becoming drawn in ever deeper into the workers, their plight and the horror that's surrounding them. I completed chapter 3 last night, which was a world of suspenseful. Running through ventilation shafts that are covered in dead ..necromorph..blerg.. jumping like a loon, but bringing the added courtesy of a flamethrower to the party. The fact that this is free with the PS3 version is a real steal. For those who have Move, I think you're going to find yourself having more fun than you'd expect. Plus, with the DLC announcement for Dead Space 2, a great way to get to know the characters before you play them int he main game. ^-^
The PS3 version often seems to look slightly lighter.
