Comparison assets demonstrate just how close these games look. There are actually two galleries to peruse this time around - a dual-format PS3 and 360 selection along with a triple-format offering that also includes the PC game.
Your whole post, including your avatar, is hilarious.
According to EG, both versions pretty much performs the same. The only things that makes the PS3 version superior is the lack of disk swapping, surround sound and another game called Dead Space Extraction is included in the disk. Getting this game on PC. I've already played Extraction on the Wii
What's the PC version like? I was tempted to get it on PC as it was half the price of the PS3 version but after the first game on PC and it's problems like being limited to 30fps, keyboard and mouse lag, I decided not to go for it.
Haven't got the PC version yet. Just got LBP2 and I'll get DS2 about a week from now. I heard about that DS2 is similar to DS1 on PC because of the 30fps lock. If you have problems with that, just use force v-sync on your Catalyst Control(ATi) or Nvidia Control Panel so that it runs on 60fps. It works on the first DS and it will probably work on DS2.
I havent bought dead space 2 yet. However i did buy dead space 1 from steam at 10usd like last year. however I am only playing it now. I have it running on 3 screens(5760*1080) in Nvidia surround. Runs at an average of 200fps maxed out on my rig. Like Kharma said you can diable vsync in game and enable it in the ATI or Nvidia control panel, works great specially with Mouse keyboard.
There is only lag in Dead Space 1 if you enable Vsync in the game options. They somehow messed this up. Enabling Vsync through the graphics driver works fine.
PC version has controller input support so just use that. I heard it has a lot of bugs though...
Playing the PC version right now maxed out with everything looks awesome, not a very heavy game to run if you look at specs too. Theres a little mouse lag but not NEARLY as bad as DS1 and if you hook up your PS3/360 controller its awesome. Ive found no bugs yet, but im also probably only half way through the game, either version will be awesome to play.
PC version http://forums.n4g.com/PC-Sc... It is not limited to 30 frames, the in game vsync is glitched, use vsync through NVCP or CCC. Keyboard and mouse is awesome in dead space but it supports gamepad, just like the first.
Same graphics, same framerate, however the PS3 version is a single disc, includes higher quality sound, and also includes the Dead Space Extraction game. 360 version is on 2 discs, no freebie extraction game, lower quality audio. I'd say PS3 wins this easily.
Why exactly would anyone disagree with you on that?
dead space 2.. really is on 2 disks? for 360?
Karl, my question exactly. What on earth? That *really* sucks.
Exactly! More bang for your buck
1 mwillion twoopers
Yeah both look identical, which is good. Does installing the game on 360 eliminate the disc swapping?
I doubt it. The 360 needs to identify the disc in order to run it.
I tried to do that trick but nah its lame. it would of been nice. -______- yeah I wonder how the pc version looks like.
have all systems PS3 version for me!
WELL worth it. At least to those who want more than just the visual experience. -End of Line
Especially considering the sound design is one of the best around. The lighting is incredible as well.
i really cant believe the 360 version is on 2 discs. im sure the first one wasnt. that sucks.
ps3 version for me too.. lpcm 7.1 make diffirense
What I never understood about all these comparisons and reviews is rarely ever do they talk about sound quality differences between the two consoles (360 & PS3). This is one area the PS3 is superior in nearly every way with nearly every title. I tried so many multiplat titles on both system on the PS3 always has better clarity, richer hard hitting bass and can be driven at higher db's with less ear fatigue. Dead Space 2's sound quality is incredible on the PS3. It is what draws me in most to the games creepy atmosphere. I didn't play the first but now after having played the sequel I am definitely going to go back and play the original.
Great! I think one of the best looking MP games. The lightning engine is pretty unmatched for cross platform games. I would be curious about the tech details, though. I am actually surprised that the 360 can keep up with a deferred engine; they did a great job on both platforms. If MP games would lock in at that quality, that would be great.
PS3 looks slightly more jagged, not a big deal though. Pretty much identical other than that.
7.1 LPCM Automatic win for the PS3 /discussion
I have purchased the superior PS3 version...loving it
nuff said ps3 version wins.. 1 blu ray game that includes ds extraction all in one baby.. on 360?? psshhhhh 2 discs? with no extra bonus? thats really sucks men..
