completely agree.. as I sad anyone excepting a PS2/Xbox difference this generation is going to be disappointed. Sure there will be the odd game but these games will be rare.

uncharted drakes fortune and ratchet kill any 360 games in visually..

Xbox was a lot more advanced last gen, but PS2 won because it is more popular. Wasn't it Ubisoft that said Naruto could only be done on the 360? LMAO is all I have to say to that...

hollabox3456d ago

I would not say Drake and especially Rachet kills any 360 titles. COD4 looks better then both, and the PS3 version in terms of textures and complexity.

He actually made that statement at a stockholder conference - to the company's board and stockholders as part of his financial report and forecast.

So he's not making a PR statement to the media or press or anything like that.

So does this mean the PS3 actually can achieve the lighting in 360 exclusive Splinter Cell game?

MK_Red3456d ago

They said that kind of lighting in SC5: Conviction (360 exclusive) can only be done on 360 hardware (at the time).

While Ubi is a studio that has worked on both PS3 and 360, I still think that tech pro studios like id, Criterion and Epic are the ones that should talk about these things not business men.

so does this mean that the 360 will ever have anything looking close to ratchet,uncharted, HS, KZ2, MGS4, FF13/versus,or GTprologue/5?

...I love it when fanboys stand on their soapbox and spiel out the same list of games time and time again. If it was all about visuals then the PS2 would have lost last gen. If it was all about visuals then consoles would never gain a foothold on PC gaming. If it was all about visuals then the Wii would not be kicking butt in terms of console sales.

Slightly off topic but if movies were all about visuals then movies like "Independence Day" would win Oscars for being the best movie, best actor, best director, etc, etc. Same would go for Episode III. However, the best movies most typically go to those that have substance and style over just style.

There is nothing wrong with great visuals but as any gamer knows, great visuals are the icing on the cake when there is great gameplay. Even the best visuals cannot save a game that has average or tired gameplay, regardless of what platform its released on.

By the way - Halo 3 had fantastic visuals. There were moments in that game of sheer stunning brilliance and just because it was in upscaled 720p did not matter one bit.

Oh yes, perhaps you should hold off listing games until they are released. I say this as people like you were probably listing things like Lair a few weeks back as well....and well, where is that now?
