TMC: First and most important of all, PS3 only owners can breathe easy, according to Nick Breckon, Bethesda Community Manager, the Playstation 3 version of the game is looking very good.
Cool, but Bethesda i really want to see the PC version.
DX11 Graphics =O.
PC = Direct x 11 Xbox = Direct x 9 PS3 is Open GL.It's different and don't use DX (Microsoft's)
PC is where its at. Where else are you going to get patches from the community that fix over 1800 different bugs. http://www.tesnexus.com/dow...
I think it's 100% safe to say this comment was not correct if the 360 is the lead platform -_-
i really dont get why its the lead. Its a lot easier to port from the PS3 to the 360 than the other way around. Expect the PS3 version to be crap cause of this. Cause lately devs have been lying about platform parity.
@Masterchef Exactly, they should have learned by now. However i'll still be getting it for my ps3 because i loved oblivion elder scrolls. If it doesn't have has as many glitches fallout new vegas did i'll be happy.
picking this for my pc
Me too then mabe i will buy the PS3 and 360 ones too if the game is really good as it should , and finish it on all 3 platforms :) i am crazy like that lol :p Pc of course will be the best one for me i love mods (tessource) , but i also like to play on consoles with a controller a lot :) Anyone knows if the loot will be awesome like in Morrowind or boring leveled loot like on Oblivion?
Can breath easy because Bethesda's Community Manager said it looks 'great as well'? Are you high? What did you expect him to say? I think i'll wait for a PS3 footage. Don't get me wrong, I really hope PS3 only owners will get a solid port but come on, this is just PR crap.
He could have stayed on silence until november and piss off a lot of worried gamers like some one else did... *cough* CRYTEK *cough* Be glad they're open to talk about their versions.
Well I don't really care since I have a gaming PC. But I do hope PS3 only owners will get a solid port.
The Ps3 version of Oblivion ironed out a lot of the bugs and look good so I don't have any doubt they will do well with the Ps3 version of this. However I have a pc that can run it so I will buy it there for the mods.
That's true. I do wonder if they'll wait a month before release to show some actual PS3 footage though.
The PS3 version of Oblivion looked better and had less loading area... when going through the world. So i wouldnt see why it wont be the case with skyrim
The PS3 version of Oblivion was better because it came out a year later than the 360 version. This is a simultaneous release, so it will almost certainly not be the case, but rather vice versa.
So what your YodaCracker is that they would have learned nothing from their time producing Oblivion on the PS3. If 360 is the lead platform then I'm sure there will be details that drop for the PS3 if its being ported, but this isn't their first PS3 game, so I'll wait and see ow it comes out.
I think this quote from the developer says it all "We do a lot of graphic development first on the xbox just because it's smoother" Pretty much what we see and here from all of the industry.
PC version is where you should buy this game.
No, you should buy the game on whichever system you like :)
If they have proper support for gaming pad on Pc this time around I don't see why you would buy it on console if your Pc can run this on max. There will be plenty of mods for this game on pc.
Never underestimate the appeal of playing while lying down on your couch.
So you're finally down to one bubble huh? See where trolling gets you?
So now you're automatically a troll if you're not a PS3 fanboy? That makes sense. If Bethesda's track record (and the track record of most multiplatform RPGs) shows us anything it's that the PC version will obviously be superior in any way. You are in denial if you think otherwise. Bethesda games always look better, run better and play smoother on PC with fewer bugs, always. Period. There is no disagreeing with this statement unless you are completely ignorant. It's not an opinion, it's fact. Plus, PC is the only outlet for mods that potentially add hundreds of hours of new gameplay that console owners will not have access to. This is also fact. That's just how the game is set up, period. There is no disputing that. Just because you can't get it through your head that something can be better than your beloved PS3 does not make other people trolls. Perhaps you should look up the meaning of the word before throwing it around.
it's a single player game and a series that's famous for it's mods as well as being very buggy(the PC community usually fix's things faster than the devs)and you can just use a pad if you prefer it that way...PC version is the one to get...unless your a trophy/achievement whore...or have a crap rig...
wow that footage was 360! damn games have come along way. I maybe able to wait a little longer for next gen,lol
amazing work! i actually thought it was the pc version. not surprised to see the 360 version as the lead platform, tho
yeah i thought it was pc too!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yea I was thinking nice PC graphics then I heard it was Xbox and I was like 0O
Wait is those xbox screenshot? Holy shit can't wait to see PC shots then!
Game thumbs wayyy up!
Well Oblivion did look better on PS3,.. then again Fallout3 I think looked better on 360,.. I thought we were beyond pixel hunting,... especially in games that are not really a benchmark for graphics and the differences are almost always negligible.(I am yet to see a multiplat, that is really pushing shit,.. even on pc,except for reso,assets reso,AA and aniso, dx11,.. shit is really never that impressive),.. Plus when you are gaiming on 50 inch tw,.. you are not sitting that close,.. They will always work it out for the lowest common denominator,.. Plus, like you really care when you start playing it ,..
"We do a lot of graphic development first on the xbox just because it's smoother." ahm...That would explain the s**h graphics that was New Vegas. PC ftw!
Obsidian made New Vegas.
Crytek said for a good year that the PS3 version of Crysis 2 was better than the 360 version. We got no footage of the gam until today. And is it better than the 360 version?, I can't tell you because they look the same to me. So Bethesda cut the BS just release a video of the game running on PS3. If you leave it to the last minute I will buy the new Modern warfare game instead, and I know you don't want that.
they came out and said that was at the begining of developement and the final game looks the same on both systems
Basically, PS3 owners expect it to be subpar, much like Fallout. I love how he comes out and says that they run it on xbox 360, but then say it still looks good on Ps3. There is noway this will end well for PS3 owners. Get the PC version if you need it, guys. I can tell you right now it will look ballz on PS3 just from his statements. Disagree all you want, you all should know, after years of developer PR talk stacked up against the final products that the outcome is already written in stone. What I find amusing is that you all have given up on PS3 ports looking better and are now setting your sights on them just looking as good. My how time, trial and error and reality changes things.
http://www.lensoftruth.com/... I was told all versions were bugged out pretty bad, however.
. This is the 360 game play trailer for those that may of missed it... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
stupid question: as we all know, ps3 is more complicated to develop on, than xbox360, due to cell+spus. triple core used on 360 is more like the cpus found on our computers. SO, WHY, whenever a developer goes multi-platform, since xbox360 is more easy to master, thus needing less time and resources than ps3, why don't developers spend that extra time saved on the "more easy to program xbox console", and use it on ps3, so we get the same quality ? somebody can answer this question ? or any honest developer here ? lets say we program something, like a big light effect. for the same result, we will need, let's say, 3 day. since the programmer, in theory, would need 1.5 days for each console, but due to xbox console beeing easier to program, he will only spend 1 day with xbox, still in theory, we would use the time saved on xbox, and use it on ps3, so we, players, get the same quality on both consoles. this, almost never happens. bayonetta, black ops, etc etc, xbox version is, most of the time, slightly better, or better. when, still in theory, the games should have the same quality on both consoles. this means: - xbox360 isn't THAT easy to program, and it takes the same amount of time as on ps3 - somebody wants the developper to use the time saved on the easy xbox360, and reuse that saved time on xbox, instead of using it on ps3. - developpers mainly focus on xbox version, because somebody could "motivate" them, with other things than chocolates, with that motivation they will use all their skills on xbox360, so the "motivator" is happy. - with 60 or 70% of the time spent on xbox360, the 30-40% left is just enough to make a fast ps3 port from the xbox360 version, and when it comes out,we will tell people that even 4 years later, the cell is still hard and complicated to program on, and everybody will blame Sony for that. - millions xbox360 owners happy, with the most polished version, spamming boards saying their console is the best -millions of ps3 users feeling stupid, blaming sony, with the worst version on their hands - developpers clap their hands, because the poor sales on ps3 aren't important after all, the "motivation" they got from the "motivator" covering the losses
That's changeing alot. Look at games like assassin creed brotherhood and dead space 2 and theres alot of others are being built for ps3 then ported to the xbox. Really this goes both ways nowdays. I'd say IMO they feel more comfortable building it for the xbox frist because if they run into trouble they know they can make a quick fix.
Think of it this way. If you speak english as your primary language and you need to write a report that needs to be made in both english and spanish then you would work on the report in the language that you know and then translate it into the language that you need. Why try to conceptualize the idea in your head in spanish and then write it in english after? XBox 360 is just made for game programers from the ground up. PS3 was made primarily as a media visual work horse but the OS and components are not favorable to game programming. Everything that you need to to do on the XBox 360 easily flows into the PC and the PS3 has a propriatory structure that just isn't sound for game design. It CAN be done... but it's like having to work around a mountain when building a road. If you haven't tried to use XNA and found it so easy to pik-up then you just don't get how programming for the XBox 360 feels so familiar from working with my PC. (yes I know mainstream games aren't using XNA for games like Skyrim, but you get the idea)
Chaos vs. Order Any idiot can create Chaos from Order but it takes a genius to bring order from Chaos. The Xbox 360 can handle more chaotic and disorderly code. The PS3 NEEDS orderly code. What developers do is start with the 360 and create disorderly code that will run just fine on the 360. But when they want to port it to the PS3 they have to "un-mix kool-aid" in order to make the code run on the PS3, which is impossible. It would be easier to create a separate brand-new set of code than to properly un-mix the code. They are to too cheap to do that, so they cut corners to reduce through-put in order to make something that will run at all. That is why the PS3 ports are so clearly inferior so often.
lol, we hear this all the time. the comparison sites will be the judge of it.
A community manager is literally obligated to say that. Why? To keep the PS3 community happy and protect potential sales. We'll judge for ourselves when we compare platforms. We will judge. We are one. We are legion.
Jesus, read the comments section on that website. Absolutely atrociously retarded people.
So basically little difference to this site, then.
So basicaly I should get it on 360 then? Since thats the lead platform?
If the PS3 version is not at the very least equal to the 360 version, I am not buying. When will devs learn that they should be leading on PS3...oh well...
you are so not a gamer you take your ps3 to bed every night right?
*looks at both the comments* No more trolling?? Oh the irony
im not trolling
What is wrong with wanting the version that I would buy to be at least equal to the other version....nothing wrong with that. No one wants their version to be inferior...sheesh...
HEADLINE #1: "Skyrim Looks Great On Playstation 3" HEADLINE #2: "Skyrim Trailer Was Captured on Xbox 360" ...Good to see you fanboys are finally getting along now :)
As long as it is good I know I won't waste a single second nit picking about which version has the best textures/draw distance blah blah blah! There is a big difference between one port being slightly better than another and a bad port.... and I think we can be pretty sure that all 3 versions will be good so that's all that really matters.... unless of course you are a whiney anal little bitch with a tiny dick who needs to brag about smoother textures on "YOUR" console to make yourself feel like a big man! If it's a good game and I enjoy it, that is pretty much all I care about!
If I recall the PS3 version of Oblivion looked better than the 360s, but that was after a year of tweaking so it could go both ways.
I already have Skyrim pre-ordered, and it's still more than 8 months away from release. I just hope that the PS3 port is at least decent, and doesn't suck ass royally. That about all I can hope for as a PS3 gamer, from a multiplatform game. Hopefully, Bethesda really is committed to making the PS3 version look great, and this isn't just more typical developer BS.
