Msxbox-world conducted an interview with Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling who was very clear on the differences between the Xbox and PS3 versions of Modern Warfare 3.
There's almost always a difference. Why try and match them side-by-side, I'd rather the differences be present and have the game play to each consoles strength.
Well at least MW2 worked on PS3 unlike Blops
ye mw2 was on a par in terms of multiplayer on the ps3, black ops was and is a disaster on the ps3.
more like mw2 was a disaster on both , between bugs and hacks , for quite a while
I believe that there is no difference... They both suck!
Didnt play much of MW2 on PS3, but Bops on PS3 vs 360 was a farce. PS3 version even now has severe issues with host migration and frame rate issues.
Bops was just horrid on the ps3, i have no comparison to 360 as never played/seen. But i do have lvl 70 10th prestige on mw2 to compare. By far was 10 times better than bops. Only stopped playing mw2 due to some cheap ass mother f*cking hacker who cleared my stats along with 2 of my other friends. All i had left was level 70 10th prestige. BTW happened prior to the big ps3 hacked fiasco, i heard thou online got really bad after for mw2.
But it's hardly ever a difference the average gamer should even care about. If you have to put the versions side-by-side to see the differences, you're nit-picking.
I hope that MW3 turns out like MW2 in terms of performance between both versions. They need to avoid another black ops situation at this moment.
So ps3 will have custom soundtracks and multi psn sign in then? Both features it can do but probably won't be in mw3. So not identical after all...
LIES! Where is the map packs, huh, no maps for ps3 yet, that means its different. HOw is it the same if you got more maps F the New IW and activision Greedy ****
Actually I can't care less about COD but I believe you may have a point there... I don't think the performance differences between versions is a big deal unless it's a bad performance making me not enjoy the game, and even so, it's not the difference being the problem, but the performance itself. If one version perform better than the other it's ok, it's still the same game on both platforms, the good experience on a platform will still be a good experience on another if the game itself is good. But the moment I'm playing a part of the game that you can't access, the game we are playing is not so equal after all. And if this part in special make the game much different, than definetely it's a different experience. I'm not saying this exclusive DLC crap the industry have going on is a big deal (90% of the time it's not even worth a foot note), but if they are so concerned about reafirming that both versions will be the same, as they do to almost all high profile multiplatform games now, they should take priorities and the first should be to make sure both sides can enjoy the whole game.
Exactly. It makes no sense to me why people think making sure the games are absolutely identical is a good thing, when the PS3 and 360 aren't identical. They're very similar, but not identical. When you aim for making them exactly the same, it has to be developed to work on the weaker system. I'd rather see the 360 version have it's advantages over the PS3 version if it means the PS3 version has it's advantages over the 360 version. Having both platforms benefit in different ways is better than neither benefiting at all.
hit the nail on the head there, dont think anyone could put it any better, bubs for making the best point so far.
I will believe it when I see it. I know business, I know if u have a multi million $ deal w one companyy, whose console relies on a particular genre and its fanbase, now more than ever...also, i hope there's a beta to work out the rediculous number of bugs. They are not invincible any longer.
Such a liar. 360 version will get DLC a month before the Ps3 version if thats not a difference what is?
He even says this later on in the interview. Go figure.
LOL. Surprised the interviewer didn't call him out on it and embarrass him. I just don't get this DLC a month earlier thing. What's the point of it? It's just stupid.
@StanLee microsoft paid big bucks to get timed exclusive content
I'm pretty sure he's talking about the quality of the game in regards to things like gameplay, graphics, etc.
im pretty sure treating ps3 gamers like second class citizens affects their quality of gameplay.
Well with how much the PS3 COD crowd has grown. I mean, the 360 version only sold a millions and change more. MW3 will sell the same on both, I can guarantee the PS3 gamers will buy this just as much as the 360 gamers when its all said and done. Activision should stop crapping on the PS3 gamers.
@evrfighter: Never said I agreed or disagreed with what Bowling said or whether I thought he was just talking out of his backside or not, just trying to point out to dangert12 what Bowling was talking about.
Can you imagine the reaction DICE would receive if they attempted the same bullshit with BF3? ha And yet PS3 users continue to support Act/IW.
I am going out on a limb here, but I think he is clearly talking about GAMEPLAY aspects.
Like they said no difference between 360 and PS3 version on World at War, Black Ops and MW2? Lol, over and over again the PS3 version was weak compared to the 360 version. Same engine this time again, expect the same weakness as all past versions for the PS3. Its better to leave COD anyways with that stupid paid Elite stuff and get Battlefield 3.
The controller makes the 360 version better.
Totally agree! The Controller makes the X360 Version superior. Best Contrl. ever!
I have no problem using the DualShock 3. Lrn2aim? I like the 360's controller (way better than that old big-ass Xbox controller, but the Controller S was a way of life), but I have no issues aiming at all on the DS3. The triggers are the only thing that sucks about the DS3.
nobody complained about the ps2 controller which is pretty much the same as the ps3 one, but now its the worst controller ever? i've had no problems with the ps3 controller whatsoever.
i can aim faster with L1 and shoot faster with R1
Sure, if you like the joysticks on an irregular diagonal angle. Most normal people like symetry.
I absolutely loved the duelshock 3 controller and people complaining why they don't like the DS3 are hypocrites whoever owned a PS2.
I have to agree with TheMART. PS3 version is usually weak compared with the 360. This is usually the case. Not bashing at all. Just stating the facts. Therefore when Dice says that they'll be exactly the same then I have to say, "I'll believe it when I see it." I just hope they don't cut out effects from the 360 version because of PS3 RAM problems or Bandwidth problems just to make the EXACTLY the same. IN the same thought I also hope that physics effects don't get cut out of the ps3 version to make up for xbox weakness in this area. You see what I mean? I hope that they make the MOST of Both systems. But it's likely that they won't.
. When Sony was in crisis recently with the PSN hack, it was Activision that came out and announced a Black-ops-PS3 bundle that did not go unnoticed in the world of gaming. A very powerful and profound vote of confidence from Activision for Sony. Add to that the sales of COD on PS3 dwarf everything on that console...nothing even gets close, so the COD fanbase is massive and if Sony ever releases any numbers of the online play, there is no doubt COD OWNS PSN by millions and millions of hours. M$ pays a premium for the timed exclusive DLC because COD is the biggest thing going on XBL. The top ten has at least 3 COD games in it at any given time...well worth the investment on M$ part to make the XBL COD community number one. If you have 360, you get the maps first and that can not be understated. Sony is cheap and still, after all their problems, ignores third party devs. Go read how the Batman dev had to chase Sony and practically beg them to have exclusive content for the PS3 fanbase with the Joker dlc...it`s crazy!!!
You're actually wrong about Batman. It was the exact opposite, where Sony mentioned to the team that they were pushing exclusive content on the PS3 version of games. That's how Red Dead & many other titles ended up with exclusive content in the first place (one of the things you hear them say at events like E3 & Gamescom). OT: I doubt that there won't be any differences, but I usually buy my Call of Duty titles on the 360 because I have more friends playing it there and I agree, to an extent, that the controller is better for FPS titles.
yawn... this is like so old at this stage in the lifespan of consoles....the graphical diff is negligible and in motion when playing a game vs staring and looking for diffs..
Right... I'll believe that when I see it. I still want to buy the game, but this does not reassure me very much.
PS3 controller is flimsy, thin, weak and has no feeling. The 360 controller is the best controller I have ever held it is solid, responsive and has better vibration, not only that the sticks are in the right place and feel responsive. The triggers are proper triggers that again feel responsive and feel good. No doubt the 360 version of both BF3 and MW3 will look superior compared to the PS3 version also coupled with Xbox Live it is a perfect match.
@SuperSaiyan4 - 360 is unreliable and 360 controller is shit.
I like how he came up with a garbage comment and you countered his comment with another garbage comment. You counter trolled a toll. It's magical.
You have your own opinion and preferences, but try not to sound like a dick when you're giving it. And... In my opinion, the 360 controller is awful if you have small hands so it's not necessarily suited to everyone. "has no feeling" That bit made me laugh. And as for this... "No doubt the 360 version of both BF3 and MW3 will look superior compared to the PS3 version also coupled with Xbox Live it is a perfect match." What are you counting pixels or something? Prove it. Back it up with something. Anything. No? Can't back it up? Well then your point is invalid, sir.
I agree with you the ps3 and 360 joypads are good but depending on your hand size depends which on fits you best. I have both consoles and can play the 360 for hours without having any problems but I can only play on the ps3 for an hour as my hands start to hurt but thats because I have big hands. My gf likes the ps3 controller better as she has small hands.
I cant stand the PS3 controller for racing games or FPS games. The other genres play fine on the ps3 pad.
I like how on the ps3 controller, r1 and L1 are aim and shoot, but on the 360 the triggers are used to shoot (on cod anyhow). It just seems like r1 and L1 should be quicker. I guess I just wish we could assign aim and shoot buttons.
been using PS controllers since PS1, dont own a 360, but i use the 360 pad for my PC. and imo the 360 pad is superior in button/analog layout and comfort.
In the end, Keyboard and Mouse FTW!!!!
Whoa I'm 6'4 with giant hands and my hands can fit comfortably around a DualShock 3 controller, the 360 controller is weird seeing that it has 3 analog sticks and 2 of which that has a "dead area"(At certain positions, the analogs won't register) And if I wanted to play with a Dreamcast controller, all's I have to do is goto my attic and find it...... Pffft
ps3 controller aint weak, i've droppped that thing so many times its unreal and it still trudges on. the ps3 controller battery also lasts a long ass time, beats having to charge my 360 one every 20mins and heck if you dont have a recharger go and put a couple of double A batteries in it. dont get me started the pathetic d-pad. the only thing the 360 controller has on the ps3 is the trigger buttons at the back, which is good because the 360 has nothing but shooters. pretty usless on ff13.
I knew a time like this would come, so I took the liberty of finding a guide for all N4G users to facepalm without injury to the face. here is a pictorial guide on facepalming etiquette http://www.likeitfirst.com/... Remember, totally retarded comments are on the rise on N4G, remember how to properly perform the facepalm in any moments like this one here. Oh and always stay in school and all that, you don't want to end up making comments like the one SuperSaiyan4 made. This PSA bought to you by HeavenlySnipes, keeping N4G safe :D
there is hardly a "right place" for the sticks . Only personal preference . For starters the ps3 is hardly fragile . It worked for 3 gen of consoles for a good reason .
360 controller? treating it like a fucking dildo if you ask me " I have ever held it is solid, responsive and has better vibration, not only that the sticks are in the right place and feel responsive. The triggers are proper triggers that again feel responsive and feel good. " if people have used the controller of the ps3 since ps1, why are they crying now after years it came out? funny huh. Both controllers are good
someone is in denial
I can guarantee you that the console version of BF3 will equally run like shit on both PS3 and 360 compared to the PC version
is it bad to like both? dont know about anyone else but i grew up with a dual shock, the 360 pad feels near enough the same, the triggers are definatly better but thats about it, i can switch between the two an not really notice im doing it.
I'm not sure why this game gets so much attention. There are much better shooters on both systems yet people flock to this. Kz and crysis2 and resistance3 are much better choices imo and both controllers have there strengths with the ps3 being familar and a great d pad and the 360 for its triggers. Don't fall into the hype of this game and force the dev to spend some quality time to fix the outdated cod engine and I guess be more like dice. That's not a bad thing.
Best Online FPS games hands down are Halo and COD series. I own the other games you mentioned and they are fine games but nowhere near the fun level of COD and Halo online.
"Best Online FPS games hands down"... opinion will only get you so far with that said.
It gets so much attention because it's the biggest selling FPS franchise by a country mile, i don't see how you can compare a game like crysis 2 with Black Ops, Crysis 2 had such shockingly bad sales numbers so comparing it to a tile thats sold over 20 million copies and claiming it's far better you are clearly in a minority with that trail of thought. I don't understand the Anti COD fanboyism, if you donm't like the franchise fine go play Crysis 2 with the other half dozen people playing it online.
killzone 2/3 are so effing fun! love em!
good to hear that, but i would much rather have evidence of that
Why do you guys need evidence saying it's the same on PS3 as it is on Xbox 360? I mean everyone is saying Battlefield 3 is the same on Xbox 360 and the PS3, could those people be wrong? (gasps)
Single player will prolly be the same but Xbox Live is so superior I question why anyone that can afford xbox live would want to play on an inferior service such as the psn.
because actual online performance is superior on PSN
LMFAO, only a PS3 fanboy could say something as ridiculous!
DrFUD I have both consoles and I NEVER play on PSN. I don't think it's a bad service by any means, but it's not nearly as interactive/user friendly as LIVE. I buy all my multiplats on 360 to play on live. I still do enjoy gaming on PSN with PS exclusives. Real question, no troll/fanboy crap, what is it about PSN you feel offers a much more superior service?
BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Thanks for the laugh DrFUD.
OK jeff Sure, I believe you. You own a PS3 and don't play over the PSN because Live is more user friendly (or shall we say Advertisement friendly). And you buy all your 3rd party games for 360 so you can play them over Live and only play exclusives on PS3. OK, so you never played any of those exclusives online? Well since you have a PS3 why do you need me to give you proof as to why there's less lag and better overall performance on the PSN (not to mention less annoying kids talking tough into mics)? You can go turn on your PS3 and try PSN for yourself without having to think too hard if you need to renew your Gold membership so you can play online. Go ahead it's there for you.
last time i checked, i run 4 bars on mw2 ps3, and thats a free service lol
I have a 4 bar connection on the 360 version of MW2. Cant really say the same about BLOPS though. That THING is a laggy POS.
