Killzone 3 For PS3: Would Xbox 360 Have the Power?

Killzone 3 is exclusive to Sony PS3. But what if it wasn’t, would the Xbox 360 be able to cope with this type of graphical power? (Killzone 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

Killzone 3 is 43GB, it would fit on 6 DVD's, even then, the 360 would explode at the main title screen.

Even though I have no proof it couldn't (but obviously everyone else here does), I will have to say no (based on the best arbiter of fact -> speculation).

The 360 couldn't even handle Killzone 3 in 2D.
How is the 360 going to hanle Killzone 3 in 3D?

The 360 will probably RRoD trying to render Killzone.

BubbleSniper  +   1641d ago
xbox 360 would not have the power because the CELL is what makes these exclusives stand out above the other consoles and in some cases even some PC games.

behind the code the hardware is the bottleneck for the 360 and is why i don't think i will see a game with as much going on as in KZ3 or R3 on the 360.

edit: CELL is very interesting piece of hardware and is different in the way it handles games compared to XENON.

pls don't crap on the PC or PC fanboys. my comment not to take a jab, Fox_Mulder.

offtopic: i have to show restraint cuz mods are watching me.

peace guys.

"either way, it wasn't a literal statement, nobody thinks it's gonna make anyone literally cry,"

No shit sherlock. If thats your justification for criticising me and not the statement in the first place then there is no hope for you.

"Answering back brely makes you any better than them" No one answered back. I pointed out how stupid the statement was. Again, if you would rather moan about that than the initial statement, my above reply applies to you, too.

Can they look better on five year old PC hardware? Probably not. They can only look as good. They would look a lot better on four year old hardware however. Lets hope PC gamers dont all own five year old hardware then. I'm guessing they dont and your 'fact' is simply your opinion. Thus another ridiculous comment Saga kin. You only have one bubble? Im shocked.

I mean seriously with a super easy to develop system thats more powerful than the PS3 they should produce better looking games than it. As the brits say "the proof is in the pudding"

KZ unique...
How many games on PS3 look and play like Killzone???...NoNe...It's pretty simple...good devs make good games. Killzone 3 is the best looking PS3 game IMO.

Can it be played on a 360 as is???...NO...the game has been designed using the very different architecture of the PS3 and would require extensive reprogramming to run on 360. It would be great to find out if it could but KZ and Guerrilla are Sony EXCLUSIVE.

It doesn't matter...there are many great looking games running on 360 that are doing things that PS3 games are not or can't do...who cares.

Killzone 3 runs at a standard 720p/30fps. Whats so extraordinary??? Don't get me wrong it looks great but people act like it's magic or something.

What game on PS3 can do or is doing what is being shown in this multi-player video...


Halo Reach was a stunning game. The game engine is a heavily modified last gen engine...and it still looks terrific...


Alan wake looked INCREDIBLE. The game engine is built around what the dev wants to focus on...everything CHOOSEN by the dev is chosen to create a game with a feel and look all its own...AW looks like no other...


People get hung up on some technical aspect of the game but miss the big picture. The team behind the games make decisions on how best to present the game to accommodate GAME PLAY. I doubt many devs are sitting around saying lets make a game in 1080p, everyone will love it...lol. At the end of the day, Game play, atmosphere and story will be the determining factor if a game is good or not.

Killzone 2 was heavily criticized for it's game play, not it's graphics. KZ 3 is again being criticized for it's game play and story while pointing out how great it looks..." it's de-ja-vu all over again "...lol.

of Course the 360 have the power to run KZ3 but not for disk space size. This article is nothing more than flaimbait presumably by a ps3 fanboy. Why do they think KZ3 is the holy grail of gaming when games like Brink Rage and Crysis 2 destroys it visually.

Not on consoles. I've just got off the Killzone 3 beta, and had the Crysis 2 MP demo for a week. The KZ3 demo DESTROYS Crysis 2 on the 360 visually. Make no mistake.

Pleeeaaaase open your eyes ... I didn't thought killzone 3 could be such a graphical failure.

Call of duty, halo, etc ... all are a lot better graphically.

This multiplayer beta shows how ugly Killzone 3 is.

I intended to buy it but I prefer to keep my money

Crysis 2 was 10 times better technically. lol

I can guarentee that a majority of the disc space is taken up by video. All they have to use is a better codec to compress it, and it would easily fit, most likely.

When Digital Foundry does their investigation of the game, I will probably be proven right.
Godmars290  +   1641d ago
Thing is, when are Brink, Rage and Crysis 2 coming out on consoles so they can be properly evaluated?

Would also like to know KZ3's file size as well as what's the best graphically recognized title on the 360. If its just a 360 game.

If you have the opportunity to play the Crysis 2 beta on the 360 and the Killzone 3 beta, then go for it. Unless your are 360 through and through the Crysis 2 beta visually nowhere near stands up to Killzone 3. Yes I have both, but my eyes are immune to fanboyism.
Killzone 3 looks better, it's that simple.

Simple answer..Nope. I'm not trying to make fun of Xbox but if it cannot pull off FFXIII as the PS3 does then no way can it handle KZ3. Forget KZ3 just look at GoW III and UC2/3 etc..cannot do that either.

sure , if they tone the game down. Less polygons maybe and less effects on screen at once.

Hell no.

PS3 is 2X powerful then Xbox 360 and has more disc space due to the size of the Blu-ray disc.

PC is just on a whole new level.
(It's always 2 generations ahead of consoles.)

Xbox 360 can barely run Gears of War 2.
byeGollum  +   1641d ago
Why won't the 360 be able to run the game?
both consoles have similar specs... There are games on the same level if not higher compared to Killzone coming this year, one of them is crysis2

these are the kind of articles that cause the ignorance among gamers today.
nycredude  +   1641d ago
please name me those games you know of that is on same level if not higher. That is what they always say and when the games release you don't hear a peep out of it again. time and time again it's proven there is just nothing on consoles that can hang with Ps3 exclusives. you watch it will be the same again this year.

that's what they've made you believe.. 'nothing on consoles that can hang with ps3 exclusive' seriously? I can't even take you seriously lol

go and download Crysis 2 demo .. that game will open a lot of eyes when it releases. Mark my words, but then again some remain in denial ..
theIMP  +   1641d ago
Yea, I'm also sure 5 year development times, and unlimited budgets don't have anything to do with that. Even if a game did look better on the 360, there's no way y'all would admit it. I think Gears looks better, but I will get 10,000 disagrees and lose my last bubble for saying it, even though it's just my opinion. I wish MS would do that, just give a developer unlimited time and money to make a game that’s does look better just to shut you fanboys the fuck up.

Gollum I wil buy Crysis 2 on Pc if it is better than the boring ass first one, which btw I have on my computer. Why would I buy it on console. I get to play the superior version of almost EVERY game wth my setup.

Heck, this looks like a complete new generation of console - not just compared to the 360; but for pretty much every other game on the PS3 as well. 360 couldn't beat what we had in the past. Does someone seriously believe it will ever beat the "next" generation?

I agree Crysis 2 does look better but the PS3 does appear to be able to handle more physics than the 360, but the 360 always looks really sharp, Crysis 2 apart from the physics (what iv'e seen anyway)does look much more photorealistic and sharper, I just think there are things that both do better than the other, I reckon maybe they could even make KZ3 look better on the 360 but without the extra physics, but lets not forget that good physics can often make up for poor textures and add greatly to the overall effect.

You need to go back to the misty mountains and review what you just wrote.

SOrry about the comment, could not resistance3.
byeGollum  +   1641d ago
it's a good thing you stated 'atm', Because there are more Impressive games not far from Killzone's release date.
joeorc  +   1641d ago
well as for one platform running another platforms exclusive's
Its all pretty much Moot anyway.

yes the xbox360 could indeed do a KZ game, but it would not be the same game as the one on the PS3 that's running now! Could GG make a multi-platform game Engine..why yes, but would they? that's another whole Question on by its self.

right now GG is only making Game's for the PS3 right now.

the reason why because the game engine's are designed for Sony's PS3 and not designed as a Multi-platform game engine.

the PS3's design takes the RSX+the Cell processor for it's Graphics render unified render memory sub system.

Microsoft's XBOX360 is not designed along those lines as the PS3 was. there is quite a number of ways you design, develop and produce content for each system.

it's not so clear cut, on one is vastly far outstripping the other in it's abilities when both machines are outputting very close to the same visual, physic's and lighting, rain..etc. in their end rendered enviroment's.

the skill's of your art, an sound technicians play a key role along with the skill's of the programmer's an story an overall game play an art direction with sound to give you that experience.

you can pretty much make any game for any platform, but there would be way's in development that may change the outcome of each platform, if their not the same hardware.

so the Simple answer is right now as it stands ..No because the Game is not made for Multi-platform game engine..could Killzone be made to work on More than one platform, I do not see why not, though it would not be the same Game as it is now.

"right now GG is only making Game's for the PS3 right now.

no, the reason why is because Guerrilla Games are 100% owned by Sony lol.

Killzone does nothing that the 360 cant do. if GG werent owned by Sony, Killzone would be on the 360 and would look exactly the same as it does on the PS3 now.

oh and for thos going on about disk space - remember, KZ3 has over 70 minutes of cutscenes. 70 minutes of 720p (or possibly 1080p, not sure what the FMV is rendered in) takes up a LOT of room. that by itself would take up over 10gb of disk space. then theres the fact that its not localised, meaning its got probably 10 different audio tracks on it, all in uncompressed 7.1, probably taking up another 20gb. then there is the duplication of data needed to improve load times (streaming off the disk especially needs to have the data duplicated all over the disk) adding another few gigs.

all up, the actual game would easily fit on a DVD if they localise it and do in-game cutscenes and drop to 5.1 audio. remember, early reports are that the single player campaign is only ~5 hours long, which doesnt surprise me since i beat KZ2 in about 6 - so its not a long or big game. and if need be, single player on one disc and multiplayer on another. problem solved.

Mission accomplished with the article you have brought out the trolls.

"Technically there isn’t much between the two as we found out thanks to a full breakdown comparison provided by IGN."

I think disc space would be an issue but since GG is a Sony developer we will never know. I would think GG are a talented enough studio they could make it work.

The beta sucks: technically there is 0% improvement from killzone 2 (I even think it's a regression)
By the way, playing with the move is unplayable ... keep playing with the original pad.

Killzone 3 is defenitively a failure ... an advice: keep your money
