Which system gets the graphical short end of the stick?
WARNING: There's a spoiler in the video. Watch at your own discretion.
So what's with GameSpot's review??
The difference between Xbox 360 and PS3 in the 250x and 300x zoom comparison is quite... drastic.
THERE is a massive defference tbh i didnt exopect there to be thids much of a defference but there is a game changing defference in my eyes the 360 version looks 6 steps ahead od the ps3 not to sound fanboyish but i find it odd its been a year know and muliplats and 1 with amazing vissuals is looking better on the 360 ? maybe its the 360 gpu?
this is pure bs, i have assassin's creed for ps3 and the colors do not look washed out and dull like that. theses fanboys must've turned off game mode and changed the settings to standard on their televisions while recording the ps3 version, then turn on game mode and changed the settings to vivid while recording the 360 version.
maybe every gamesite isnt actually out to get sony kid...keep up that attitude and the only site left would be sonyfanboy.com or somethign...honestly when they split the screen is when i can really see the difference but when they show them individually its hard to tell....its only evident (atleast to me) when they are put next to eachother
Color differences are trivial and can be adjusted.
Shall I hook a 360 up to a B&W CRT-TV and hook a PS3 to a Bravia and then compare the two? Save the color difference, they are the same.
And I like how mesh tried to sound somewhat neutral in his post, but we all know he's a PS3 hater and has no credibility.
haha i dont h8 the ps3 or love the 360 as i think bothare the same tbh but it annoyd me to read lies AND when this site is 80% sony fans and 20% 360 fans i feel there an unfair ness going on as thissi a sony site and tjhey twist 90% of the storys so i feel i have to make sony boys snap out of[
Obviously doctored to make the PS3 version looked blurrier and washed out. My copy on my PS3 looks very vivid and clear.
great comparison vid, sonykids are not going to like this, I'm just glad I own a 360=
vvvvv hey gamesblow, Gametrailers doesn't change anything they just compare the games side by side, maybe you are just used to the "way" games look running on your very nice ps3, dont blame Gametrailers for that, lmfao.
uh oh, here we go again, ADD gametrailers to the list of micro co-consprirators, this comparison vid is fake they obviously did "something" to the ps3 version, oh well another day; another site bribed by micro
Denial...Denial ...Denial... ppl cant cope with Reality so they say dumb$hit like ooo "gametrailers hate ps3 so they are makin it look bad on purpose" blah blah blah ... the only game that i can say looks practically identical is COD4 i can barely see the difference so good job to Activision ..to the rest of u in denial ..its ok how could the minor color difference really upset u ? cmon just enjoy it
And if you get around to it, you can spend about 15 seconds in your TV menu and eliminate the color difference, then they really are the same. :D
i have a 360 and ps3 and my friend brought over his 360 version and i put it on and they look i dentical color and all ps3 has more partical affects than 360 and runs smoother so how did they do that they used deepfield imaging and turned it of on the ps3 to make it look colorless and thats some 360fanboy trying to put down the ps3 i did it and thats how it looks i did it on both it makes it look bad .i have them both a and you have to admit it games are looking better on the ps3 and it will only get more better as developers get to know it .
Hmmm... My Assassins creed looks nothing at all like that Ps3 version there. That's strange. My Ps3 version litterally looks nothing like that. These are nothing more than tampered with. Color, contrast and sharpness has all been messed with on the PS3 version of these pics, clearly.
just call customer service and say its too dusty
MY NEITHER SAMSUNG 61 1080P DLP
I have this for the PS3 and it looks NOTHING like in that video .. i have a 360 too and my gamestop friend popped his in .. they are pretty much identical with the xbox version with a slight advantage in lighting, although i like the more shaded perspective of the ps3 .. anyhow somethings off here. Sharp Aquos 42" HDMI.
of course its not going to "look like that on my ___" hdtv" because the difference is this is a side by side vid comparison on the *internet,(it also depends on the TV and quality vid capture) which is definitely NOT going to look as vivid as you watching it LIVE in person on your hdtv, same holds true for 360, no sh!t it looks better in person, the point is both comparisons use the same setup= again 360 version comes out looking a little better,
i dont have a clue as to why this is happenin but there is no way the ps3 version looks like this. the graphics colour and framerate all looks well on my set up. something fishy i think. am waiting for my neighbour to get this game tomorrow for his 360 then ill do a comparrison myself
got mine today and it looks way better than that. Playing it at 720p with the brightness turned down one notch. Framerates solid and the game looks fantastic.
Trust me, I don't even like the game as my review dipicted and I'm not fond of the Ps3 much right now, either... Those vids are doctured. Plain and simple...
I chose the PS3 version of this game and it doesn't look anything like this video to me. Either way, it's a great game.
Can anyone tell me when the spoiler starts cause I don't want to ruin the story for myself
right at the start tbh if u had a brain as soon as th ementioned the scifi twist u wud have known the spoiler
Why on the back of the box is 1080p listed for the 360, and 1080i for ps3?
Its not, don't know about the xbox 360 (it died again) i had to get the PS3 version, n it's got 720p on the back.
My cousin is a video game freak, he bought both versions to compare them and we noticed the same thing as this video, The PS3 version looks less clearer and the colors are more dull compare to 360. He still loves the PS3 version cuz of the remote but i prefer the 360 version. and Wow already a disagree??? Fanboy lerks..lol
teh celll wins againg
Both look the same except for the unsually high brightness for the PS3 version.
ps3s frame rate and pop up's says hi
The horse ride is where you can tell the difference in frame rate. Another thing about PS3 versions is they tend to be blurry.
I haven't had any framerate problems at all, but there is a bit of tearing and pop-in, which usually happens during the countryside areas on horseback.
The only other problems the game has are the crowd A.I., which can feel very mechanical at times, and the lack of side quest variety. Saving citizens plays out exactly the same every time and the guards always say the same thing over and over ("stop thief,' 'I'll have your hands for this"). I'm really really surprised that the guard and crowd dialogue and objective variety is so limited for a game that's as big as GTA: San Andreas.
I still love it though.
Oh, the futuristic stuff isn't so bad after the so-so intro. The main character's acting and dialogue is really the only thing that hurts it.
Has Ubisoft made a game yet this gen that didn't have a F'd up framerate..
Looks just like the 360 version shown in this video on my TV.I don't know how they came up with that look but it has bright colors and a lot less of a faded look when I play it.Anyway I'm on memory block 3 right now and I really like the game.For awhile I thought I sucked except for in the beginning because I couldn't counter and then I realized I had to earn it back.Now I got it again I'm kicking ass and forgetting names.
Haha yeah I had the same thing, with earning the counter back.
The thing here is that these review sites have clearly craned the brightness in the game up to about 8 on the ps3 version. Dropped the xbox 360's to about 4. Then tamped with the contrast on the ps3's tv. I cannot believe Ubi or Sony doesn't step in and demonstrat for themselves what it actually looks like on their sets. This is out of control, folks. Plain and simple.
Screen tearing, texture pop up and choppy frame rate aside... Assassins Creed doesn't look like that on the Ps3. I'm sorry... Well, not my tv it don't.
its nothing to do with brightness as we can clearly seeeee the texture/lighting on the 360 is far sharper and better than the ps3
Is it just me, or the graphics for AC seriously awesome! Jeez, I might have to go out try out this game (I would rent... but that just ain't my thang).
Regardless of how "butchered" or "rushed" you think AC's gameplay is, there's no denying that this title is a graphical powerhouse.
contrast, brightness and sharpness settings make a huuuuuuuge difference! Just try turning all the sliders to wonky settings in any PS3's uncharted demo and you'll have washed out stuff that doesn't look like screenshots at all. I expected Ubisoft to favor developing on the xbox platform but there is clearly some TV calibration issues at work in this comparison video.
I love the comments, "that's funny, i have the PS3 version and it looks nothing like this, yada yada yada".. Thing is, if you had the 360 version, it'd look that much better. how would you know if you have nothing to compare it to, plus you're sitting some 10 feet away when you play it.
If you look up close on a side by side comparison, i'm pretty sure this is a good representation b/c ALL comparisons by MANY different sites look like this, PS3 is always washed out and blurry when compared to 360.... geez..
Also, PS3 version, check out that ladder shadow just POP right up, nice effect. Saw some nice tears and stutters too.
what a piece of crap, glad i didn't get one b/c i was so close...
come on PS3ers, give me some disagrees, live in denial, i don't care..
I will call you an idiot.
I to have this for the PS3 and the colors are fantastic, not sure whats going on there in the video but it doesn't look like that.
But you don't have the Xbox 360 version to compare it to, do you? Sniddles pretty much made a good point.
gotthe ps3 version looks a lot better than that vid yada yada got a 360 too and my dad brought over a copy. With the brightness set down one notch on the ps3 it looks better and has less tearing not to mention a noticeably better draw distance. Still the xbox version looks great and the glossy parts are certainly a bit brighter...
You dummies... of course is not going to look like that video... when you put HD videos over the internet like that it loses quality. Same with the 360 version, both lose quality... and all things being equal... 360 slightly edges out the PS3 version graphically.
P.S. Sony fanboys stop being in denial, the PS3 isn't all that it was hyped up to be... the sooner you admit this to yourself the more quickly you can get to enjoy games and not waste time trying to defend this type of things.
Their handling it better than you guys!! they said that theri something wrong with the video settings!!anyway who cares wat xbots say!! did you guys see that awsome tv ad for assassin's creed sony did for europe.

is nothing new. When a more powerful system comes out the graphics are better day one. Don't try to convince people that are not brainwashed into thinking that it as unlimited power propaganda wait til they unlock the power meanwhile 360 multiplatform games continue to look better. Don't be biased. Like I said nothing new.
The Xbox 360 version looks better. Moving on.
You all should get a f**king life. You're so blinded by your fanboyism, that you don't even notice one thing. You're subconscious is so used to the same old "360's better" or "PS3's better" that even if your version of a game was lower, you'd still end up saying that it beats the competing version.
On another note, maybe they're using different setups for comparing the game. I mean maybe they use component for the 360 and HDMI for PS3 or vice versa. Though HDMI is digital, i've read that it tends to make things look brighter (hdmi signal also degrades over time and length). As for component, although analog, is much more reliable, thus maybe providing a bit more colors since the technology is a LOT older than digital. I may be wrong, but just a thought.
Why would they use different sets and signals? Then it wouldn't even be a fair comparison. GameTrailers would lose all credibility and respect from the many users who attend to that site.
Either way, I doubt that they would do such a thing. That would just be sabotage.
There is a version of the Xbox360 without HDMI out there. See where i'm getting at? although I doubt reviewers still only have the "Core" model, it could still be a possibility.
I am aware of that. Since I'm an early adopter of the console, mine has no HDMI port. What I am trying to say is that would be unfair and uncalled for if GameTrailer's really did what you mentioned earlier. I'm pretty sure they are using the same television with the same settings and same digital signal.
the fact that some of you girls are arguing over nothing just proves how pathetic some of you are.
whatever happened to playing games? so sad it's come to this....
To those of you above claiming that the PS3 version looks nothing like that on your TV, congratulations on revealing yourselves to be total asshats. That is not the relevant comparison. We don't care whether the PS3 version looks better on this or that TV. What we are concerned with here is how it compares to the 360 version on the same TV, all other things being equal.
The normal human eye cannot discern such subtle differences in shading and image quality without a direct basis of comparison because the human brain is geared more towards recognition than comparison. If two images resemble each other closely enough, your mind will tend to convince you they are the same instead of allowing you to remember the slight differences. We evolved this way because recognition is more useful in the wild than subtle comparison. Hence, the only way normal humans can make fine distinctions between images is if they are placed side by side. Only if the difference is so obvious that two images look more different than alike will most people be able to differentiate things based on pure memory.
Standing by itself, the PS3 version should look wonderful with respect to the contrast and brightness settings. It only begins to look pale when it is played alongside the 360 version. You won't pick up the nuance if you play the PS3 before the 360 (or vice versa), even if it's just a few seconds apart, because your mind has been trained to tell you that the PS3 image stored in your head is the same as what you're looking at on the 360 (or vice versa). You have to see both images at the same time to notice the slight difference in brightness and other small details.
Framerate stutter and pop-up, on the other hand, are completely different matters. Your mind will record a dropped frame or pop-in more as an incident instead of an image. You can remember that it happened even if you don't remember exactly how it looked. Incidents are more easily remembered than images, and I don't think I have to prove that to any of you because your own personal experience should tell you that is so. For this reason, a slightly washed-out look or loss of detail isn't as big a deal as an inconsistent framerate.
I don't have a PS3 yet, but based on what I've seen of the quality of the comments here, I'm inclined to believe my own eyes instead of listening to what you dolts say. Based on what I can see, the side-by-side comparison tends to bolster the IGN review and makes the Gamespot review look like a bald faced lie. If you want to counter this evidence, put up your own side-by-side comparison. Otherwise, shut the hell up.
since Sony folk claim HDMI is so much better, how would this further the PS3's cause in this respect?. I've heard that component can have better color also, but, then why HDMI if you can do 1080P over component?
SO, with 360 using an "inferior" (up for debate) interface, it still looks better??? I think PS3's backed into a corner, and i don't ever see it changing.
It will one day be seen that Sony was killed by a closed platform, with shoddy hardware, and overpriced perpetuals. I guess the consumers made their choice...
I guess you haven't heard of something called the "Red Rings of Death". What about Microsoft's overpriced accessories that should come standard with the system? Proprietary HDD? Play and Charge kit? Proprietary 100 dollar wireless adaptor? Give me a break!
Both systems have their shortcomings, but i'm tired of hearing about how people think one or the other is god-like. Just play your freakin' games!
edit: I should have guessed it was sarcasm, lol, though it doesn't translate well to the internet.
I was playing with the OPs idea that Sony is in trouble. I was being sarcastic suggesting that 360 would defeat PS3 and be the consumers choice despite it's shoddy hardware and questionalbe policies.
it's funny because i was playing AC while watching this video and did notice it looks quite different, even side by side since my computer sits parallel to my tv.
i might it rent for 360 and try to compare but i don't even think there's a need for it. the games are close enough only fanboys will argue the differences.
sniddles: try doing a research on HDMI 1.3, you will read about something called deep color. by the way ps3 HDMI is version 1.3, microsoft is not. so to answer your question, component truly is inferior to HDMI 1.3. whether it makes a difference on this game s debatable.
I can't believe anyone even argues over it.
It doesn't work that way Sheng. In every experiment, try to cancel out or quantify all variables. You have to make the comparison on the same TV screen. Don't compare the computer image with the TV image because that may just reflect that your TV is better or worse than your computer monitor.
EDIT: Also, with respect to your point about "close enough only fanboys will argue the differences" I can say the same thing about component vs HDMI image quality. I personally cannot tell the difference without a direct side-by-side comparison, and even then hardly notice it.
The Xbox is able to produce more realistic HD(Color, contrast and lighting)seems like the devs are learning how to clear up 360 titles.
Xbox 360 = Discovery HD club 1080 = MoJO =HGTV.HD = MHD
Ps3= History channel HD = USA HD = A&E HD(looks clear but lacks the other 75% of what HD actually is, is really HD?.
People say it doesn't look anything like that at home but the differences remain the same and the two versions would still be as different if you had both versions to see at home.
Actually, you people need to realize that because the difference in hardware, their native contrast and brightness output will be different. If you ever own both, you'll know that TV setting on either one are fairly different if you want the best out of them.
I'm playing right now and the ps3 version isn't like that.
Wich crappy tv are they using?
P.S. I've tried desperately to slowdown the framerate, rotating camera, jumping and running like a crazy but nothing happens. The ps3 framerate is solid like a rock. So wtf with IGN?
N4G - the place to own a sony fanboys - over and over and over again. No matter what you can't deny the 360 has better textures AGAIN and mops the floor with PS3 AGAIN.
If only sony fans wouldn't talk so much bullsh*t, FUD and lies all the time we would not have to rub it in their face every time a game comes out.
Open your eyes and quit being blind sony lemmings !
A game that started on the ps3 looks better on the360. Ps3 owners just got seriosly pwned! Another mutliplatform better on the 360. COD4 and now Assassin's Creed. Great times for 360 owners and just more complaining and excuses from the ps3 owners.
I'm just saying the truth. And sometimes the truth hurts. So if you don't like it, just put me on ignore. But a recent comparison has given the edge in COD4's graphics to the 360. Time and time again the 360 prevails while the ps3 fails. Attack me all you want sony boys but I just give u facts.
COD4 looks identical on both systems you fanbat
People complain about this site "being run by PS3 fanboys", but then xbox extremists like yourself somehow manage to keep your bubble count intact.
Like I said, this site is a big joke.
.... The guy is complete loser, seriously folks, do your self a favour and ingor him, I know I will!
Even with video comparisons, people are still in debate on which looks better. Then again, you won't even bother with the PS3 version so you wouldn't know what it would look like in person anyway.
It doesn't matter to me since i'm not getting this game due to its single-player mode seemingly being tacked on at the expense of multiplayer (and before you jump on my nuts, I still haven't bought Heavenly Sword either).
