The AT&T Blue Room has posted a hands on preview of the console versions of Call of Duty 4. While they prefer the PC version o the game it does look like console owners are in for a fantastic game when the game is released in November
ill be getting this day one for my ps3
Call of Duty 4 is on the right track making the game good on both consoles instead of one.
I played the PC demo of this game and it totally kicks ass. But I will probably get this for the 360 because all of my friends play on the 360. Those cheap bastards are too tight to build a real gaming rig, so sometimes I settle for gameplay on the inferior consoles I own.
i heard that the blade of grass on the ps3 has a nicer hue than the blade of grass on the xbox versions.
but then again i heard the xbox 360 loads up 0.000452 millisecond faster than the ps3 versions.
Both console versions will be good to go and nearly identical, so everyone should be happy.
Except those PS3 fans who bought their console $600 to play crap games!
yeah and for the 360 owners that paid $400 for 640p. Not even HD they would have been better off with an xbox.
yeah and for those owners of POS 3 console who paid $600 for a 3 hour game(HS)that my dog can play cuz it was so easy! Freak for $670 I can get a whole day with a hooker!!
Actually PS3 owners paid $600 for a system that doesn't have a 33% fail rate, has a disc drive that can hold all the new games coming out for it, HDMI 1.3, WiFi, and a hard dive that they can switch out at their leisure.
and dont forget built in bluray as well LOL
Don't forget the built in PS2, PS1, PSN, and XBOX360.
Don't forget the PS3 comes with a free xbox360 without the internet fees and RROD. Yes, most games worth buying on the xbox360 are ported to the PS3 or are available on the PC computer like Halo, Gears, and Bioshock are.
All xbox360 owners paid for is the fake reviews amd smoke & mirrors. By the end of this console generation, xbots will have paid for a standlaone bluray player (most likely a PS3) and / or HD-DVD drive (no movies and poor video quality), and internet fees so high that even if they didn't buy a PS3, the internet fees are already equal to one PS3. They're just so stupid.
No wonder they like Gears and Hillary Clinton doesn't.
I'm confident to say that most PS3 owners have a higher Grand Point Average than XBOTS.
XBOTS, why is 2x4 and 4x2 the same? The answer is 8, but explain why both result in 8.
It's a fact that xbots play Gears more than they do homework. That's why they think the xbox is really good. But if they can't pass Algebra class, you shouldn't be taking advice from them. Taking advice from dumb or poor people will only make you dumb or poor like them. Don't do that to yourself.
Thats an expensive hooker.
Try this one save your money and you could still buy a PS3 record her on blue ray and watch it in HD ...
I wonder if they (x-box fanboys)can do specialist or method math cause I think they go crazy just for a formula on the sample page
If the consoles are anything like the owners above, I can see why.
I am clinging to hope that the comments above are from very young owners. I don't think I would have too much faith left in humanity if they were proven to be adults ;-)
joking aside it really is sad that nearly every article has to be drug into the mud by trolls and fanboys.
back to topic:
COD4 literally might be the first game that I purchase for both systems. That way I can play with my friends that have one or the other. That and the people I met online while gamign on both systems because most of my real life friends are like me and don't limit themselves to any one system.
I highly doubt there identical. Game Daily specifically stated that the Ps3 version had better textures, better lighting and resolution. Because both versions were in different rooms in this preview(xbox version in a small room)this journolist probably couldnt get an accurate comparison.
COD4 looks better on PS3, but when they review it they won't take off any points of the 360 or say anything about comparisons. It seem like they only bring up comparisons when the 360 has an edge. It doesn't matter which version is better, multiplatform games are the same and will have the same experiance and you wouldn't know which version is better once you playing it. I do hate comparisons, especially when it's minimal to nonexsist.
Ok Fanboys i am a bit of an xbot.
DOn't shoot me yet!!
I believe all comparative screenshots that you have been talking about were beta builds of the game. I would WAIT it out until the definitive final builds are released and compared. Otherwise we all sound like overzealous geeks trying to trump each other, don't we?
My guess is they will be completely identical.
And if PS3 multi is better graphically, will that be the FIRST TIME?
lol. about time.
anyways let's wait until it is REviewed. NOT PREviewed.
"COD4 looks better on PS3, but when they review it they won't take off any points of the 360 or say anything about comparisons. "
Does saying this stuff make you feel better??
Yes, it's all a big conspiracy in reviews against the PS3 and it's every ones fault but Sony and it's dev's for the reasons the games look and play like sh!t. The typical Sony fanboy is so egotistical that this is the kind of crap they spew and believe.
Stop trying to justify your console choice as better than someone elses. Are you interested in the game itself or it's graphics? They say both versions have smooth framerates, which in my opinion is a key factor in games. If you are that much of a graphics wh0re go play Crysis, it looks better than any console game.
i will be picking this one up for ma ps3.
"the console similarities end when it comes to textures, lighting and resolutions, because those three areas make the PlayStation 3 version definitely excel over the Xbox 360 SKU."
I have never played COD but I will try this one out. Don't know which console version I will be getting yet but I hope they all play great.
which controller you like best since both are almost identical and PS3 will run on servers which I prefer because of less lag and server created rooms and custom rooms. I hate the host thing on xbox live.
But I will get the 360 version, because the controller is better, achievements and Xbox Live.
I've been playing the multiplayer beta the past month and despite the BS about lag.. The game plays perfect.. and who wouldn't want to play it on a unified platform vs that mess that is PSN.
x-box 360 controller have never been better than Ps3 not even one game that feel good with the controller, so how it better since it so last gen controller, everybody know that Ps3 is a next gen controller as well as the wii not x-box 360 which is still the same as the ps2 but bigger and uglier. If you were using 360 controller it like holding a brick in your hands, man that it so last gen ain't like the wii and ain't like the Ps3 and its not even compare to the Ps2 controller, how pathetic is that?
it comes out the 360 version will be the better looking
Shouldn't your name be Microsoft Rep?
Shooters suck without them, kept Fall of man from being a GREAT game. the only one they have btw
remember ps3 do got rumbler and coming on the way and it not last gen rumble like the 360
I played the demo. Worst next gen rail shooter ever. There is no room for battlefield creativity or daring. There is only 'do exactly what the developers intended'. At one point I sprinted past everyone to the farside of the bog. No enemies close to the tank, yet by this act alone I was told the Abrams had been over run. So much for daring.
There are single routes into areas and then doors that magically open once you complete the next objective. And that list of objectives has to be done in order. The sad thing is the game has little replay value in the SP mode because it is a lock to be absolutely the same very single time.
Spawning in the game is non stop. Case and point. If you choose not to grab the Javelin (that no one else can operate and it is just lying out in the open) then you can literally kill hundreds of enemies that never stop pouring out on the bridge. Or, shoot one of the AI that appear as muzzle flashes in a building and another appears. And another, and another. How big is this friggin building? How dumb are these AI that after they see 50 comrades slaughtered in the same way they opt for the same action.
In this respect the AI from MoHA far outclasses the AI in CoD4. The AI here in CoD4 understands only players that come from a set direction at a set time. A very cheap and transparent invention.
Then there is the idiocy with the supposed realism. I wouldn't make and issue out of it except the military advisor for the game was a pompous ass former Colonel that never saw combat himself and had the stupidity to claim the realism is high. They made such a big issue out of the realism but they aren't fooling anyone that has ever been assigned to combat arms. Hey dumbass, you don't use a HOLO sight in that manner and you don't sight it in conjunction with a PEQ2.
You also don't use beacons like that. You keep them with you to mark your own position and then direct fire off of that. That is just one method of several correct ones and they chose to use no actual method. Yeah the realism is high...and so is that wannabe former Colonel. Realism sometimes must take a backseat to gameplay but there are too many methods where realism can be gameplay with an even bigger thrill. It just isn't in CoD4.
I could have easily stopped that Abrams from being over run just by not going through the fence. Many games use trigger points but the art is in disguising them rather than making them so apparent.
The game just feels too artificial. It works like this. Your guys hold up at a door way or a corner. As you approach, they take off into the objective, start a firefight, you join, it ends. They rush to the next point, rinse and repeat.
The saddest thing is people will buy this in droves and that will tell the developers that you want another game that is actually built in invisible corridors with no freedom to deviate from the script. I don't think a sandbox is the route to go but the ability to at least enter a building by taking an RPG and breaching the back door would have been nice but such doors are indestructable.
No, the game looks great but thinking this tops HALO3 for gameplay is a joke. You can play levels in HALO 3 and they will be different every time. You can have a story driven game with objectives that doesn't put you on an oval track and drive you in circles until you hit a checkered flag.
save us the wall of text dude
you played the beta so i wont say your wrong but if your saying Halo3 is inventive in its gameplay then i guess you can just go on drinking the coolade.
Just remember what was said about other beta's! For you to call out a Colonel for never seeing real action is just plain stupid. How much action has most ppl in the armed services really seen b4 Iraq? Even the gulf war was fought with bombs. Unless your a former Marine that has served in Iraq under BUSH #43 u have no right calling this dude out! Wars today are not fought like they where in WW2! Most of us will never know what Modern Warfare is and we should be blessed to never know.
ADD ON: Guy under me
Blow me! You know what a gas bag is dont you. Its a fool who talks out his aZZ and im no fool and i understand more then most about the history of where this counrty has been. I happy you made it back to play some games but just because i dont have a 360 tag doesnt mean i havent played the game. I have around 10 hours online in Halo3!
anyway good to hear you made it back! Just watch out for those mood swings and if u see Chris Hansen of date line make sure u go out shooting
No dumbass I was one of the first guys into Afghanistan and Iraq and one of the main people interviewed in this book:
I have 20 years in and retire in a few months. The guy was an ass.
ADDENDUM: Someone with no 360 gamertag has no right to even open their mouth about HALO3 as they obviously haven't experienced it. Anyone that does so is as pinheaded as an Xbot attacking a PS3 title they haven't gamed. I have run HALO3 quite a few times. On the first Scarab takedown the devs provided multiple methods for taking that beast down. You also aren't penalized for moving to what the devs predetermined was the wrong side of the combat area. You can move wherever you deem you have the best tactical advantage. The AI rocks. It's about freedom and player choice and HALO3 has that in spades.
You can flap you suck about it all day long but with no 360 credibility you are just a mouthy fanboy gasbag. And that statement is true whenever you trash talk about any game on any console or platform you don't own.
Those were some really interesting points you made. Especially since the developers themselves boast about the games realism. I will take that into consideration while playing the game. What are your thoughts on GRAW 1&2 and R6: Vegas?
Are there different ways to kill a scarab? I only know the most obvious piss easy way, jump inside it. I thought for such a big impressive machine in was way to easy to blow up. The spider things in Resistance are a quarter of the size but a lot harder to kill and avoid.
Also interest in your response to Jenzo's questions as I love these games. RB6 is crimanally underated and over looked. Curse you Gears of War (which I feel is OVERrated and came out at the same time stealing alot of RB6's thunder.)
im sure some xbox site will back up your claim. I got a site that says the PS3 version looks better
whatever the case i wont jump on that topic because its going to be great on both systems. This is what a real company does when they work on multi-platforms games
~~looking at you EA~~
I mean, wtf?! I thought it was 6 -8hours?
man you must be good playing it! Can you please send me a tape where you sow off yourself getting through the whole game in 3 hours? Cause I really wanna see it!
BTW, Now you can get a PS3 for 400€. If your an American as I am led to think you are, you'll be able to get one for 400$ in a couple of weeks.
So stop throwing the 'its too expensive' arguement around, cause it doesn't work anymore.
BTW, if you can only play 'crap' games on the PS3, I guess CoD 4 will be crap on the PS3...but much crappier on the 360 as the PS3 seems to be better, according to Gamedaily.
Fine then ;)
I love HALO 3. See my remarks above. But the fact is it took me longer to beat Heavenly Sword than it did to beat HALO 3 alone on Heroic.
"Still, as strong as Call of Duty 4 is shaping up to be in the gameplay department, the most immediately impressive aspect is by far its graphics. The PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions all look surprisingly similar, but that's not due to one platform being the lead; Infinity Ward personally assured us that development occurred simultaneously on all three platforms, and that there wasn't a base system. With that said, the console similarities end 'when it comes to textures, lighting and resolutions, because those three areas make the PlayStation 3 version definitely excel over the Xbox 360 SKU.' Regardless, every console owner will proudly use Call of Duty 4 to showcase their high-definition TV, because COD4 is by far the best-looking console game you will see this year."
Any one home xbots cuz the proof is in the pudding. Xbots are becoming too confident.
I will wait until the final build of the game is out to reach any conclusions. One thing PS3tards do waaay too often.
Great game on either console.
I will be buying this for my PS3, cuz my Gold subscription for the 360 expired and I refuse to pay fifty bucks to play with those fools. What a rip off.
" With that said, the console similarities end when it comes to textures, lighting and resolutions, because those three areas make the PlayStation 3 version definitely excel over the Xbox 360 SKU."
A logic error.
"the console similarities end when it comes to textures, lighting and resolutions"
"because those three areas make the PlayStation 3 version definitely excel over the Xbox 360 SKU."
360 version will be better because the xbox live community is better than PSN's.
they communicate more and know ho to play as a team.
oh yeah, it makes so much fun to play with 12 year ols childs and racists on live
You must get stuck with them because you are one. We dont play with those kids, and if one sneaks in he gets booted.
Dude every game I've played on XBL has had some 10-12 year old kid screaming into the mic and otherwise speaking nonsense.
"I can't say I saw any stuttering or slowing down of the game which is pretty good."
I'm kind of nit-picking the article, but I kept thinking? How is this "preaty good," what would just plain "good" be? Maybe if it was improved to the point that there was no stuttering or slowdown noticable then it would be "good," because how can you get better than that? Ohh wait, that's what he said...
This is not intended to support either consol. On this matter all I'll say is COD4 devs deserve the money they'll be earning from all 3 versions of the game. Way to give EVERYONE what they paid for!
The PS3 version gets better graphics on hardware with no Red Ring problems.
The 360 version gets a special edition on hardware with a better online structure.
Pick your preference, but no one loses.
what do i want with a special edition, this is a ripp of. and live is full of lag. so in every point the ps3 version.
Just because you cant afford anything but dial up, dont talk crap.
I never had any lag on 360 or PS3, it happens about once a month for about a minute or two, which is basically nonexistent.
there wasn't any lag on either psn or xbl both service were great except xbl has more 12 year old kid which is so suck to enjoy the game, better get it for ps3 than 360 perhaps if u want to avoid them
If you have a PS3 get it on PS3 and if you have a 360 get it on 360...It doesn't matter which version is better if you only have one console..
ps3 version, here i come!
I'll be getting the PS3 version too, I think its going to run better by this time in the game.
Before comparing which version is the "best".
Although i doubt the difference will be small (if any, as Infinity Ward said they should be identical, but we`ll see) between the two, it really dosn`t matter that much which one you pick up.
I hope they`re the same though, as it can be shown that you can make multiplatform games great, if you make an effort. The PS3 needs better versions of it`s port, regardless if it`s the hardware or the developers fault.
we can't be happy for good games. This is the way it will be forever. I bet the 360 version sales more copies. Sony gamers don't buy games. I also thought Sony guys did not like FPS?
So we have two different opinions on how the game looks. I don't think I would rush to say one is better then the other until the final build is out.
Funny... how Sony fanboys point at all these non-existant issues ont he xbox 360 version... like.. lag? what the hell are you talking about.. I play Halo 3, COD 3, COD 4 Beta, Gears, .... and 90% of the games I don't experience any lag.
ohh yeah... and about RROD... I'm not affected by it... So.. even if I had an PS3 there is no way on hell.. I would buy the PS3 version... for the simple fact that It does not have achivements..
I'm a very competitive person (can't you tell?) and I like showing off when I beat a game... I want to know which one of my friends be the game and if they got the achivements I have.. if they have one I don't have I will surely replay the game until I get it.
Yeah sure.. bla bla.. achivements means nothing.. bla bla.. but to me.. achivements encourageme to go the extra mile when playing a game.. and not just beat it and put it away.
Multiplayer? No being about to send a game invite to a friend of mine so they can join my team while playing an online game..
The PS3 version simply lacks a bunch of features that the xbox 360 have... that's the bottom line.
when you mentioned achievements points. Seriously, once you experience your first *achievement unlocked*, there ain't no going back.
Both versions are going to be sweet (relax guys), but my money is for the 360... Can't do without those damn achievements. Man, you got me Microsoft.
or any of my friends for that matter. I have 22,000 in achievements points and if I would have pursued them I would have over 40,000 by now. All I care about is gameplay and online connectivity for multiplayer.
I know a ton of gamers. My friends list on XBL is usually full and I don't know too many people that care or chase after achievement points. I'm sure there are a ton of people that do. I am just saying most of the people I game with only care about gaming in general. The only time I care about achievement points is when they are linked to unlockables in games like Halo 3.
you mean that u have the RRoD but dont want to say it because that will add another 360 that has died to the growing # of 360's that have it.
wow just wow i have had xbox live for a month and I didn't like it at all and yes i lagged playing full auto a lot to so I don't know if your just lieing or you don't know what lag is because it does happen on 360 more then 10% of the time
does not necessarily go for everybody else. My 360 works pretty fine, so don't be insinuating (haha!) that I'm some sort of liar. Plus, I think its pretty obvious why YOUR 360 started lagging. Its not like too many gamers actually PLAY Full Auto (Full Auto??!!)
Just kidding, calm down- Still, its not really polite to call somebody a liar because his/her perspective doesn't fit with yours.
