With Call of Duty 4 just hours away for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, many people are curious to see which version has the edge. Here are some comparison pictures taken from SPG.com. Both look great, but which one has the edge? You decide.
validation of your beliefs Fact is none of these are comparable and the game is great on both consoles.
Screen shots don't mean crap! I wonder which one has better frame rates and better online MP!
I hate most of these screen shot comparisons.. I would only like them if there were exactly the same shot or almost the same shot on both systems... BUT I would rather see comparisons on some good old HD Video from good old gametrailers :)
Violator you are right these pics aren't even taken in the same spots This is retarded and I have a feeling this was set up to make Sony fanboys look like idiots.
no need to argue
See, I'm a Playstation fan (not a fanboy, notice the difference thank you) and I still think this comparison is stupid, not even the same f*cking shots...
lOl do you guys see the name of the site? ill wait for a gameradars or ign comparison. much better then this madness =)
I can see why Evil0Angel has 1 bubble. Dude, you're a douchebag, and a fanboy, so go f*ck yourself. As for all the douchebag fanboys on both sides, why don't all of you go stroke your c0cks for your respective system and let the rest of us have decent FANBOY-LESS conversations.
I'd like to see both running side by side ONLY so I would know whether to buy it for my 360 or buy it for my PS3. Screw the fanboys who use stuff like this for ammo in their flamefests.
All of the other websites say that the 360 version has a slight edge on the PS3 version, while the PC version blows the other two away in visuals. After seeing the screen shots, I can say that if the 360 does have an edge, it is not going to be one that most people would ever notice.
copied the images and run both format ones through a resolution upscaling program and then altered the contrast on both images and zoomed 12X. Everything is almost identical except for the normal mapped texture of one of the stones, which one the Ps3 version has 5 more grains in the texture. The 360 had 128 such grains which i individually counted in the stone texture while the ps3 had 142. therefore if you work this out as a percentage, 128/142 *100 = 90.41. Therefore the ps3 is 10% better visually in the texture department.
the guy could have at least taken at the same point in the game..
ya wth at least show the same point... still gonna have to wait for some better comparisons that and we need some feedback on the online and actual gameplay. Hopefully form a more reliable source has well lol. btw seen the blue tinge on other xbox screen shot is it gonna be in the retail too?
those were the worst 360 shots they cud get and it even looks better than the ps3 version amazing
sonyprotectiongroup.com..... I bet the 360 pics are from some early beta phootage. It's ridicolous that "news" from extremely biased sites like this gets approved. You Sony fanboys just end up hurting your beloved brands credibility even more. P L A Y B 3 Y O N D ! (look, I have to write like that so the fanboys can read it. Easy-to-read lol!)
its SPG one of the worst biased and spin facts, and outright lieing site on the net.
SPG was EXPOSED as being owned by an xbox site. Joystik I think.
damn i hope dats biased cus the difference is a lot more than i expected.
It would help if the images were taken side by side on the same locations, but a good comparison none the less. It seems both shots were taken off screen too.
These aren't even comparable... and they are both off of a screen. They both look great, except the ps3 looks better.
You were doing so great till you had to throw in "except the ps3 looks better." I mean, so so close to making an intelligent non-fanboy post. *sigh* Maybe next time. :)
Everyone KNOWS which version looks the best ; ) Toobad 2 reviews have already said the PS3 version looks better and graded accordingly. You lose junkbots.
I just looked at the screen shots... This is by far one of the worst comparisons I've seen.... lol Honestly, there pics weren't even close to being in the same location or having the same gun... pitiful.. AND they weren't even direct feed... just a fine digital camera..
both look great. enjoy!
The PS3 looks better still..!!..
maybe better luck assassin's creed
the ps3 has a slight edge based on textures but i can't be for sure due to different locations
Are people blind? It's clear in these pics that the Xbox 360 version is made to look superior. I believe these imagies were put together by a xbox 360 fanboy as they seem unfair to the ps3 version.
based on these screenshots, is pure stupidity.
what? this was put together by the sonyprotectiongroup or w/e...doubtful they would do anything to make the 360 look better... I don't know...the 360 shots look great...the PS3 shots are of a level with more detail though...just looks like the camera wasn't as good, or the picture was scaled differently or something...there are screenshots around of the PS3 version that look much better than that... either way...the game looks great on all platforms...that is all that matters...
No, It was posted ON SPG but by a NEW member, with 1 post only.
at first I thought u were joking then I actually looked at the pics.. this sony fanboy f***ed up lol
They look the same. Which is good news for both systems considering how much "weaker" everyone seems to claim it is.
What kind of comparison is this, at least take the same photos. why is so hard to get definite answer.
The game isnt still pictures...its moving...in action. Until we see video or even more peoples reactions it dont mean nothing.
So out of curiosity, why do the ones who claim there system looks better even care. If you own a 360 your getting the 360 version and if you own a PS3 your getting the PS3 version.So unless your egos are so low that the only way it can be uplifted is to have a "better" game, why do you even care?
Ok, how about people like me who own BOTH systems? Why can't we actually get some REAL comparisons (unlike this shrill) so we know which version to buy. Someone needs to start a website for people who own all 3 consoles so we can see comparisons with multiplatform games that details the differences in a NON FANBOY way.
I don't count you lucky jerks into my critical thinking on this issue. :)
Guy please stop this already, every single website said they both look identical. come on guys just buy the game and enjoy it. Man some of you guys are more of a fanboy then gamers.
I'll have to wait till Friday. Hopefully some store will break the release date and sell it early to me. Probably not.
If you own both consoles (ps3 xbox 360 like me), you have the right to buy the better version of the game. If the PS3 has better whatever I need proof and the same go for the Xbox version. After all the smack talking towards the PS3 and how developers are have problems porting games, there is no way both games are idenical. BTW why has every review so far been copy and paste.
@18.2 Bubbles for you. We multi-console owners actually DO need to see REAL comparisons. If online is better on one and graphbics better on the other (not saying thats the case here as I haven't read anything about the differences with CO4) then I'd like to know.
FLAME ON!!! This site is so much about flamewars it is pathetic. Come on already. I agree with the comment "Real gamer 4 life" made above. Infinity Ward did a great job by dedicating individual teams to each platform. It shows in the results. Frame rate on both the PS3 and 360 is great. Enjoy the game and stop the bickering...it is getting very old.
C'mon, seriously, lets compare a shot of a helicopter in city to one of a forest full of red trees!! WTF, and you guys can say which one is better!? The pictures aren't even high res, so half the friggin details are lost right off the bat!
Meh you'd need someone who was unbiased to buy it on each system. Maybe JC will be on and can give us a clue as to which really is. All sites are biased... This is just a fight not worth fighting. Side note. if you dont have the game yet go buy it.
They used blue more than any other colors.
maybe my 20/20 vision is starting to fail me 'cause I don't see much difference but either way this isn't exactly a worthy comparison, I'm a 360 fan of course, but what if, what if both of them actually look identical or so close you couldn't tell which is which= identical. nah, thats blasphemy 1 version has to be the better than the other, its a fanboy law, right? JOY
because i have played the game and it looks awesome Thumbs up to the dudes at Infinty Ward
Sony Protection Group... - ROFL
SPG was exposed as being owned by 360 fanboys.
Tim Robbins: Let me explain to you how this works: you see, the corporations finance Team America, and then Team America goes out... and the corporations sit there in their... in their corporation buildings, and... and, and see, they're all corporation-y... and they make money.
I mean, both the same game, at least they could have given us comparable shots. ANYWAYS, gametrailer will have a video up soon
The comparisons are not even in the same locations nor is the guy's character holding the same gun. You'd think that someone would have the common sense to take these picture on the same levels while holding the same weapon... >_> It would make the whole comparison thing more tangible.
I was thinking the exact same thing. The weapon modifications on the weapons are different... The environments are very different so there's different shadows and lights bouncing off everwhere. This comparison is a joke. Just wait for the Gametrailers comparision if you're really eager to fight. They do the 4X zoom in and play the exact same parts at the same time and run the games right next to each other in splitscreen (1 side PS3, one side 360) This news post is a joke...
It's sad what kind of junk gets approved.
Sure, trust screenshot comparisons from a site like the SPG. Jeez, who approves this crap?
Why are these screen shot taken from different area of the game. Why not take the same screen shots from the exact area of the game to have an actually comparison. But who cares, this game is fun and graphical differences should matter in which version you are going to get. Get PS3 version if more people who you play online with are getting it for their ps3. Get the 360 version because of the same reason. Or get the version for the system you own(PC, 360 and PS3).
I've got to play all 3 versions... but not online (yet). In my honest opinion. All of them have the same look and feel, at first impressions. The PC definitely spanks them both when it comes to image quality, resolution, etc. And it is much smoother and of course the mouse+keyboard combo makes for much smoother gameplay. Simply put, PC > Consoles, of course you need a decked out PC to get that result. On the console side, the PS360 version look almost the same. The PS3 has some rough edges in some spots, and more *blurrier* texturing in other spots (having the lowres, stretched look). Not that the 360 is doing any more better, but the spots where PS3 suffers, the 360 does a bit better, but you would only notice it IF you were actually looking for it. The lighting is about the same, but the 360 seems to be doing a much better job with some of the effects. And it seems the 360 version has some lighting effects not even present in the PS3 version, at all. Both games get hit with some slow down, the PS3 just a little more in specific spots, but even the 360 slowed a bit in other spots the PS3 did not. Otherwise they were both smooth and consistent. On controls, this is subjective. Personally I loathe the Sony controllers, so to me, it wasn't as smooth a ride as the 360 controller provides. The audio is the same for both, loud and banging. Otherwise, this is probably the BEST multiplatform PS360 game out so far. A much better effort than other companies had done. Definitely better than Halo 3.
It is a richer better Multiplayer than Halo 3 but Halo 3 is still very fun to play and has some features that are great for competitions. I prefer COD4 but just wanted to point that out.
it is very interesting that you point out issues with the PS3 version that not a single credible reviewer has...blurry textures, PS3 version being scaled more (so now its the PS3 running at a lower native res?), and framerate problems...have not been reported by anyone else... whats that smell?...
It is set this way to intentionally make the PS3 version look bad. Doesn't anyone remember that SPG is owned by Wii60.com ?? Hello?? It is a frickin' joke site made to make Sony fans look ridiculous and clearly it is working based off some of the comments in this thread. If this were a proper comparo, it would be video side by side of the same areas.
I have the game on the PS3 and it is the best game I have played online so far. Before this all I played was Rainbow 6 vegas and Warhawk. It looks great on the PS3 and The Xbox360. I have both systems but chose the PS3 version because I didnt want to renew my Live account if I could play for free. I haven't played the 360 version so I wont judge it but some people I have been playing online with have said that it looks better than the 360 version and that it looks better than the PC version on the PS3 unless you have an expensive rig. this guy said he had a 8800 something card in his PC. They game runs with no Framerate issues, no issues at all on the PS3 version so far. No matter what version you have the game is great and enjoy.
These shots are not comparable, the PS3 shots hardly has any geometry at all. Most of the shots beside one, does not show nothing in the distance, I wonder if the PS3 version has a low draw distance. The 360 shots has a wider and longer draw distance, enemies on screen, smoke, destruction, special effects that are not present in the PS3 images. So based on the images I say the 360 version looks better because there is something actually going on screen then just ground shots with a few trees.
Staring at the ground? What are you talking about.
Anybody getting a website down message?
well those comparisons suck! they are way too different! but i have to say this game looks so much better than i thought it would. I kinda regret my boycott on COD games. i guess i'll rent it.
Sony Protection Group is owned by Wii60.com Either way, these particular comparisons are worthless. We all know the game looks great on both systems. =]
Thanks DJ, I tried to point that out to peeps earlier :p
Didn't see that till just now, hehe. =P
