G4TV: Crysis 2 Xbox 360/PS3 Single Player Comparison

Crysis 2 is out on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC with Crytek's new state of the art multiplatform game engine, CryENGINE 3. This stunning high-definition engine can be used at the highest quality on PC, only if you have a high-end optimize computer that is. In all, PC wins over the consoles, but what about the people who don't have the best PC out there?

That's why G4TV is comparing the Xbox 360 and PS3 version to see the differences and similarities when running Crysis 2. Don't get mad, just enjoy and look closely as you see the CryENGINE 3 in action on the consoles.

LOOKS exactly the same, only thing is ps3 is a bit brighter than 360 version. everything else looks to be on par. good job crytek. But we all know that ps3 can do more but they aren't because it's a multiplatform.

I'm trying to figure out why Nowgamer gave the XBox 360 a higher score. They're the only ones that did it. They claimed the graphics and sound were better on the XBox 360 but all the comparisons I've seen, they're the same.

I don't know why anybody thinks they are going to see anything in a simple video comparison. The differences would have to be massive for you to be able to see them in a video.

Even if you put the PC version next to the PS3 version they are going to look nearly identical in a video like this, except for the higher framerate in the PC version.

That doesn't mean that the console version looks as good as the PC version of course. When you actually play them on your screen at home you can automatically see big differences between them.

This is why simple video comparisons have never been all that helpful and why actual technical analysis is necessary to help us know what we are actually going to see on our monitors or HDTVs.

I think Digital Foundry does a pretty comprehensive analysis. For those interested in comparing the two versions, just wait for their faceoff. In the meantime, if you have an interest in the game, get it for the console of your choice.

The second part of the video inside the warehouse...*facepalm*....the xbox video is being shown on the PS3 side and the PS3 on the xbox side.

The PS3 is only brighter because of the settings on your tv or game.

MaxXAttaxX2800d ago

That DARK crush and harsh contrast seen in 360 games is a bad attribute.

The overall visuals (detail, lighting, contrast, etc) on PS3 look closer to the PC version than 360.
Losing detail in shaded areas is not my thing.

Further proof:


Seeing as how the PS3 version comes closer to the PC version, I'll get that one.

Your links are broken and you keep posting them in every Crysis 2 article. Please stop.

MaxXAttaxX2800d ago

Just checked.
Links work just fine.

Right at 7:37 the Xbox 360 screen has the PS3 square button. The guy is pointing the gun at the dead guy on the floor. At 7:57 the playstation screen has a xbox 360 button. Wow.

@gameps360 don't be a sheep. IGN got called out by Crytek so of course their going to say that the PS3 version is worst than the 360. When they both look identical.

PhoenixDevil2799d ago

Yh good spot, I'd actually want to purposefully do a video like that and show it to IGN see if they see that the labels have been swapped would certainly be interesting ;)

THANKS G4TV. I was woundering about the truth concerning the PS3 and 360 comparison. I see all the fanboy comments and I tend to get caught in the middle and dont know how to believe. Glad to see the both version looks pretty much the same. Good Job!

tacosRcool2799d ago

The PS3 has way better shadows

I still think Killzone 3 looks better. I don't know why or how, I'm no expert, I just like the way it looks, feels and plays. Crysis 2 looks hot, I bought it for ps3, but kz3 looks better.

look at the 7:33 mark you can clearly see that g4 mixed the versions up. It shows the ps3 version where the xbox 360 version is and vice versa.

G4 couldnt even tell the difference when they made this and obviously got confused lol. Just goes to show you how identical they really are.

StarScream4Ever2800d ago

Hey... what gives... They got it right during the first game scene before the cutscence transition.

Laika2800d ago

haha wow. didnt even notice that the first time. nice catch

Persistantthug2800d ago

Good catch talltony.

Bubble for the eagle eye.

Masterchef20072799d ago

LOL funny they got the 2 mixed up. Plus bubbles.

Yeah Crytek did a pretty good job in making both look the same. Cant wait to see the XBOTs to say that they dumb down the 360 version so it would look the same as the PS3 one.

Who wants to count pixels? Let's see which version dropped one framerate!

Ingram2800d ago (Edited 2800d ago )

The framerate.It comes from "frame" "rate".
I'm sorry to nitpick but, perhaps you wanted to say "dropped one frame"
...or instead you could say "has better framerate"

On topic: I hate Crysis 2 since several days now, this morning my milk n`kellogs started shouting at me with a tiny pokemon voice : "camarillo has something else to say!, camarillo! camarillo!" "PC BEST VERSION!"
