Eurogamer: Xbox 360 vs. PS3 Face-Off: Round Five

Once more Eurogamer returns to the front line trenches of the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 console war with the latest in their continuing series of cross-platform confrontations. This time the coverage is bigger and better than ever before, featuring more games, more comparison shot galleries, and more detail on the behind-the-scenes technical trickery employed.

So, onto the line-up of games then - five highly rated 'original IPs', and four not-so-impressive summer movie tie-ins:
* Virtua Fighter 5
* Transformers: The Game
* Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
* Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
* Colin McRae: DiRT
* Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
* SEGA Rally
* FIFA 08

You know what, I haven't looked at these images, but I don't think such comparisons should be approved on this site. It's fuel for the flamewars so I'm personally boycotting approving them. Maybe one day others can see the logic in that.

ive looked, read what eurogmer say and i think it was 6- 2 to the 360, but they did say it was hardly anything inbetween them, ps3 development is getting better.

I do understand your point of view, and even approve of it as too many threads are hijacked by fanboy flamewars.

But this is a good and informative article, well written , and suprisingly unbiased.

Its of no suprise that the PS3 versions of many games suffer as they are often quickly ported from the 360/PC version. What is heartening for that platform, is that its becoming increasingly obvious that if you spend a little more effort, some decent parity can be achieved without having to rewrite your engine for Cell. Sega Rally, dirt and Harry Potter all show this is the case....

It's an article written by professionals who try to thouroughly compare PS3/xbox versions of multiplatform games. Links to articles like this should definitely be approved, read and discussed. I like reading them, although I'm a PS3 owner and most of them so far are not favorable of PS3. What I hate is seeing people discuss obscure fanboy blogs comparing pictures of 100x50 size, taken from 10 meters away from an SDTV set with a crappy camera. Or blog articles that are 1 year old. These should never get approved and discussed... :)

3rd party devs are really improving with PS3. very good comparison indeed. although 360 takes the win this time, the difference is barely seeable. Expect them to disappear ( or yet crossed ) within 2-3 months.

mighty_douche3729d ago

The day they lose the LOTR and Harry Potter games (God willing this happens), there actually will be awesome games on the way based on these movies/books.

AnalFace3729d ago

I have to say dirt looks better on ps3

BadTaste3729d ago

The rest looked identical though.
