Holy screen tearing! That's just a tear-ible job by Techland.

Corax2207d ago is just one of those sites that keeps the fanboy/console war fueled

That's only if your a "fanboy" yourself. Some mature people who own both systems don't like wasting their money on crappy ports.

In the case of Dead Island, both versions are pretty crappy.

except the pc version :3

1st day they gave Steam the XBOX 360 debug version.

So in actuality, the PC version was WORSE.

Just sayin.

I don't know anybody who buys games simply for there looks going back and forth playing on this system then that console. They buy the game for the system they mainly prefer then buy the exclusive for the system it's exclusive for. doesn't make sense to say "Oh that game is coming out! I gotta see which system it look better on so i can play it on that one." It simply doesn't make sense.

Oh come on Soul Train, AKA Lens staff member, you can count the crappy ports the past couple years on one hand. Most multiplat titles have miniscule differences at best.

There is more to a game then graphic performance. What about sound differences (visual is half the experience of ht gaming. sound is the other half. yet no one talks about that), online performance, input response with controller (some games have issues with input response), etc....

"You're" acting as if graphics decides whether or not it's a make or break for a consumer than owns both consoles. There have been some games that looked better on one console but played smoother on the other even thought sites like yours said there was no frame rate difference.

Besides, the games in these comparisons rarely ever look on my display the way they do from these comparison sites.

BTW what about PC version. You say those that have both the 360 and PS3. Most gamers I know have both plus a gaming PC as well. Seriously, just stop. You guys do this for hits and you do fuel the fanboy wars.

I know a ton of gamers that have both and spread the wealth regardless of what sites like yours say. Most of them judge for themselves and don't trust sources online. I am one of them.

Wow that's some pretty bad screen tearing. This far along into this gen that shouldn't be happening.

I'm afraid of your avatar. :-(

Jake_Butler2207d ago

I like it where do I get one like that.

EdwardS0872207d ago

Anyone play this? is it good?

Son_Lee2207d ago

The game is fantastic! I have it on PS3 and haven't noticed this level of screen-tearing. Nothing even close. It really is Fallout 3 with zombies, but the quests are way better and the game is just more fun. It's actually scary and presents a great atmosphere. I'm playing it solo, and it's a complete blast - adds to the scare factor, as well. You would be doing good in purchasing this game. Well worth the full price, and you can't say that about a lot of games this gen.

Best zombie game ever! :D And yeah, I never noticed any screen tearing, except near the beginning of the game
