Dang they look pretty close if you ask me. I guess performance will be the deciding factor... 3 disks or 8 gig install pick your poison

Shanks2390d ago

Well rub my nipples with sandpaper and beat my wiener with nitroglycerin, somehow they look the same.

Zephol2390d ago

looks the same! Xbox 360 wins!!

Korix2390d ago

Why the hell does the 360 win if they look the same?
For me, I'd rather install 8 GB than switch between 3 discs. Depends on your harddrive in the end.

slayorofgods2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

The only difference I'm seeing is that they have different gamma adjustments. So really they are identical.

phinch2390d ago

can people not see that zephol was joking....

Sitdown2390d ago

If they both look the same...why do you prefer minutes of an 8gb install over seconds of disc swapping....while keeping your space?

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32390d ago

I'm too anxious to not be able to just pop the disc in and play. Patience isn't a virtue that I have....

zeeshan2390d ago

Holy sh**!!! They look the same! GREAT JOB!

Corepred42390d ago

No matter people say or think. Having to swap discs is so barbaric! Especially in an era where we have discs with bigger capacity and HDD available! Not joking, not 'trolling'. Truth.

juggulator2390d ago

It's pretty crazy but they look identical. Looks like id just set the bar.

NewMonday2390d ago

is this after the PS3 super texture pack?

pixelsword2390d ago


I really doubt it; unless the super texture pack actually means "id's a pack of liars".

ChrisW2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

I dunno... it seems that the Xbox version looks greener and the PS3 version looks redder.

Literally! And I don't think it's because of the color of the boarder around the pictures.

I have 1TB HDD in my PS3 I bought for 50bucks.

I have a XCM adapter to use a keyboard and Mouse/360 controller for any PS3 game.

So the PS3 Version for me.

slayorofgods2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

I have the exact same, only on my pc so it will be a hard choice between pc and ps3 version for me.

kevnb2390d ago

unless your pc is crap, get it for pc hands down. If for nothing else, there will be mods.

sikbeta2390d ago

1TB? I thought the max was 750GB, I read it somewhere :P I have a 320GB with 55GB left, next time I do a change I'll go for the bigger available...


Looks the same to me, everybody wins!

Washington-Capitals2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

The 1TB drives on the market currently won't fit in a PS3. They're 12.5mm so are slightly too thick. PS3 needs to be 2.5" & 9.5mm.

Clearly people on this website lie for some f*#$ reason that that i really cant explain. Stupid fanboys. And all those people agreeing with him are clear blinded fanboys who think sony will brick their ps3s if they say something negative or dont blindly approve of everything pro sony.

NoOoB1012390d ago

@ washington-Capitols
Theres ways to get a 1tb in ur ps3 if u didn't know. You shouldn't call someone a liar before asking them how..
u can check google on how to or go to the playstation forums and plenty of members on there tell u how to get a 1tb hard drive in..but it involves breaking the hard drive caddy inside the ps3 to make it fit.

motherboop2390d ago

Actually, you're all wrong! The first 9.5' 1 TB 2.5 drives have hit the shelves in early August - I have a Samsung in mine, and it works flawlessly!

Pedobear Rocks2390d ago

@Washington Capitals.


It took me 5 seconds to see that you are wrong.

oh...Ovechkin sucks

Washington-Capitals2390d ago

guess im mistaken and i apologize. But $100 with shipping is quite a bit of money, and the way people here are saying "oh yeah i have a 1TB hard drive also" seems like EVERYONE has one. Thats definitely not true.

Anyways, i didnt want to respond to that. to the NOOB who said ovechkin sucks. Alex Ovechkin is the best player in the NHL hands down. Cindy Crosby is too pussy to play cause he has headaches. OV is still the only player in the leauge to have scored 60+ goals in a season since 1993. He has won 2 MVPs (Hart Trophy), 2 Goal scoring (Rocket Richards), Art Ross(Most points) 4 Pearson awards (Voted as the best player by his peers) in ONLY SIX SEASONS IN THE NHL. Please you know nothing about hockey, cause ovechkin DOES NOT SUCK.

Blitzed2390d ago


I am not going to be ignorant and say OV sucks, thats just stupid. However you shouldn't be calling anyone a pussy while backing OV. I will never forget him leaving the game agianst Canada in the World Juniors. He was crying and complaining that he was being 'picked on'. Sure, he has sinced toughened up, but he has the beating the Canadian juniors gave him to thank for that.

Blitzed2385d ago (Edited 2385d ago )

@WashingtonCapitals Since you blocked me after PMing me like a true 'pussy', I'll respond here.

Sorry about the 'cursing', I didnt realize you were so sensitive. Ill try and tone it down so I don't hurt your delicate sensitivities.

I could fill you in on the credentials of my hockey knowledge, however this is the Internet, I could say anything. Im sure my opinion doesn't carry much weight with you anyways. How about the GMs of the league? Do they carry any weight? They like Crosby better too. Check it out since you like TSN polls so much.

Also, It wasn't that OV was hurt, he quit. He could play, he just choose not to. He was crying because he was being 'picked on'. Those were HIS words. Oh and he was 18 idiot, not 16. Regardless, did you sulk and cry alot at 16?

Still talking about Crosby's first year in the leauge when he bitched at the refs? I'll give you that, drove me nuts too. He has since matured though, and no longer is known for that. That's probably why he has an Olympic gold medal and a cup, what does OV have again? Oh that's right, individual awards. Crosbys got those too. I guess that's all you get though when do things like steal the puck of Semin's stick; His own teammate! I bet you loved it when he pretended his stick was on fire. Lol His own teammates skated away from him!

Enough OV bashing though. I actually think he is an incredible player (like I said in my original response), just not the all round player The Kid is.

You want to bash Leaf fans now? How often do the Caps sell out? With all your superstars in the 'top 50' and you couldnt win a playoff round! You talk about the Leafs being at the bottom? How old are you, 8? How do you think the Caps picked guys like Semin, Backstrom and OV? Toiling in the basement for years!! You should really think before you type, your points of argument make you sound like a fool. Send me another PM when the Caps win a cup. Ill receive it since I dont feel the need to block you. You see, Im not a 'pussy'.

HA! Good luck seeing this in the next 24 hours if you haven't already. Their servers are poooooopy.

Cmon you cheapskates, sort it out already....

TheBossMan2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

I think it's time for "Clock of Truth" where we pit the time it takes to load the site against the time it takes for peanut-butter to fall out of a jar hanging upside down.

EDIT: Really? It loads for you guys? Cause if not, I don't understand the disagrees.

dantesparda2390d ago

^^ LOL!!! god stuff, good stuff. You hear that LOT?! you are becoming a joke. Shape up!

Prophet-Gamer2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

IMO, the install is better, sure it'll take a while but after that you don't have worry about having to switch disks. I wish that there was an option to install all 3 disks and only need disc one to access the whole thing.

TheXgamerLive2390d ago

That should be exactly it as the disc in this case is only used as a security measure. download all 3 and play with disc 1 in the tray.

regardless, enjoy Rage my friend. it's gonna be an all night experience tonight

sikbeta2390d ago

Install are better IMO because of how easy is to swap a bigger HDD in the PS3 and the back-up utility is a wonder...

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32390d ago

Uhhh...yeah...that is an option, lol.

guigsy2390d ago

This could be done, whenever you install a game on the 360 the disc is only there for validation. That's why it stops spinning after a couple of seconds. I guess it's to stop people sharing discs.

cjflora2390d ago

Yay! They both look exactly the same! Which can only mean they made the game for the lowest common denominator! Wait...

TheXgamerLive2390d ago

actually, remember the Xbox 360 can instal/download all 3 disc to it's Hard Drive and play seemless from it.
This will make it a greaat play through....and the ps3 has an 8 gig instal, that's going to make it play great as well.
Not sure about the PC's choices, however ALL who will be playing Rage tonight after the midnight release will be the real winners as this game is going to "KICK ASS".

2pacalypsenow2390d ago

Even if you install all 3 disks on the 360 you still need to swap disks

zeddy2390d ago

without doubt the slowest site on the world wide web.

Boody-Bandit2390d ago

The site doesn't load at all for me.

zu4G2390d ago

for me its a tie..

too bad for id, Dark Souls and Nba 2k12 will outsell this game..

Wow! Carmack and company are gods amongst their peers! These two look nearly identical. Can't wait to see how they perform!

SilentNegotiator2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

"gods amongst their peers"?

Come on now, it's great that they made both versions identical, but then both of them lack AA, and the "megatextures" are pretty blurry.

Seriously, some of the textures are an eyesore:

Their peers might create a game with 60fps too, if they allowed the graphics, especially textures, to take such a hit.

Zynga2390d ago

Game looks amazing so quit being a graphic whore. Let me know when a PS3 EXCLUSIVE does 60 fps otherwise shut up and game on.

SilentNegotiator2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

"Game looks amazing"
Obviously you haven't looked at any of the pictures in the link I posted.

If you just looked at LOT's selective tiny screen captures (a site that wouldn't exist without publisher's ad dollars and early copies of games), then sure, it looks amazing. But if you look at raw, HD pictures such as the ones I linked to, you'd see a different tale.

And why would I want a "PS3 EXCLUSIVE" to run at 60fps if it meant such muddy textures and no AA? 30fps is very playable, and GOW3 ran at around 45fps on average with absolutely amazing graphics (no muddy textures, had amazing AA, fluid animations).

I'll take a ps3/360 game at 30fps with nice textures (and maybe AA) over a 60fps game with muddy textures. Any day.

I just think its insulting to call John a "God among his peers" when his peers have made very impressive games. Games that weren't 60fps, but some as high as 45fps with spectacular graphics and no short comings just to get a marketable framerate.

dontbhatin2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

@ Zynga

Wipeout HD 60 fps
Warhawk 60 fps
GT5 prologue and GT5 60 fps

need i say more?

NukaCola2390d ago

Ratchet and Clank Future series
Critter Crunch

gumchewinasskikr2389d ago


Rachet and Clank, GOW 3

And even though COD is not exclusive it is 60fps.

It isnt magic bro and it's obvious that there is a trade off. Look at the textures man they are shit!

cjflora2390d ago

Making the game fit the weakest link isn't exactly an accomplishment. I would have been happier if they'd spend the time required to make each one full advantage of each system. Although I do understand the why that might be more costly I would be curious to see if it made any difference in sales if a company tried it once.

Ulf2390d ago

If you see it in action, there's more of a diff.

Ulf2390d ago

I wonder who the disagrees are from, the PS3 fans, or the 360 fans?

popup2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

You have purchased the game on both platforms and compared them on the same screen? Great!

Can you explain what differences there are please? I am amazed at how good the game looks and both claim 60FPS. I could not see much tearing on the PS3 video I saw.

Ulf2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

No, I saw it at PAX.

PS3 -- Some tearing in the outdoor area. Not much, just a little, really.
360 -- Some texture pop-in. Looked slightly blurrier, implying a sub 720p framebuffer... but it was a trade show. The screen could have just been worse, or had odd settings, relative to the PS3 station right next to it.

kevnb2390d ago

screen settings create pop-in? I would go ps3 for this since its opengl and this is carmack, but of course the best choice is pc even if its held back by consoles.

gamingdroid2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

Carmack said that he thinks Direct3D is better than OpenGL:

"'I actually think that Direct3D is a rather better API today.'"

"Direct3D handles multi-threading better, and newer versions manage state better.'"

WetN00dle692390d ago

The game is basically identical!
Many props to John Carmack and Id!
cant wait to play this and Dark Souls tonight!
