Lens of Truth - Head2Head: RAGE Screenshot Comparison (PS3 & Xbox 360)

Lens of Truth writes - "Welcome back for another exciting Head2Head! This week we take a stroll through the mutant filled wasteland of RAGE on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. There’s been a lot of speculation on how id Software’s latest creation would look consoles, and here’s your chance to find out." (PS3, Rage, Xbox 360)

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

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

looks the same! Xbox 360 wins!!
Korix  +   1520d 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.
slayorofgods  +   1520d ago
The only difference I'm seeing is that they have different gamma adjustments. So really they are identical.

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.

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.

Washington-Capitals  +   1519d 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.
Blitzed  +   1519d 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.
Blitzed  +   1515d 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'.

guigsy  +   1519d 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.

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

Xbox 360 for the best experience
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".

"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.

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.
SilentNegotiator  +   1520d 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.

cjflora  +   1519d 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.

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.

In fact, a signal on ps3's hdmi goes directly, while 360-signal a lot of times processed and re-encoded. Therefore ps3's games gamma closer to the developer's idea. You also can check this in Crysis 2 platform comparison, where is pc and ps3 gammas a closer to much.

Why is it then that in pretty much all previous comparisons of PS3 vs 360 multiplatforms, PS3 fans would always complain and say to just modify the TV settings for the PS3 game.
DaTruth  +   1519d ago
Because 360 fans were the ones complaining the PS3 looks washed out compared to the heavier contrast of the 360 version! Thus, if you like the darker contrast better, just modify the settings!

It could have gone either way, but nobody was complaining the 360 version looks too dark! In those comparisons, the only way to make the PS3 version inferior was to say "it looks washed out"!

That doesn't mean the PS3's gamma wasn't the developers intention, it just means 360 fans were grasping at straw!

I just saw the pics and both versions look pretty much the same. There is a slight difference in resolution and draw distance but its so minor that its barely noticeable.

However if i had both consoles i would choose the PS3 version due to the free online, dualshock 3 controller and single disk format.

I thought Carmack would screw up the PS3 version because he complained about Sonys console in the past. But i am happy that i am wrong.
Oldman100  +   1520d ago
If you're wondering about the blurriness in the distance in the second to last rollover of the ps3 version i'm pretty sure it's the result of depth of field. Which to me seems to give the ps3 version an advantage.

How is that a good thing?

It like having a Ferrari and a Lamborghini handling exactly the same. Not using there respective strengths but the least common feature.

No you can't go faster than X km/h (mph)
No you are not allowed to accelerate more than Y m/s^2
No you must not take corners that tight

I want to know why this should be considered good.
DaTruth  +   1519d ago
In a perfect world both cars would use their respective strengths and the race would be even. But what usually ends up happening is one ends up using all its strengths and the other ends up using none of its strengths!

So it's just nice to not see that Lamborghini disappear into the distance when you know under the right circumstances your Ferrari could have done much better!

Sadly, this is the most we can hope for!

what do you mean, "how is that a good thing"?

the PS3 has a history of getting the short end of the performance and visuals stick when it comes to multiplatform titles, mostly due to dev laziness and their unwillingness to learn how to properly optimize their game or the system.

the fact that both versions are more or less equal (at least visually) means that the devs *did their job*. i means that they spent as much time making sure that their game ran at its best no matter what system you own.

if the PS3 is capable of doing everything that the Xbox 360 can do (and vice versa), why would you not expect the exact same product for either system?
RegorL  +   1519d ago
@DaTruth @ziggurcat So you are saying that

it is better that Xbox gets a worse game than it could have got?

And/Or that

it is better that the PS3 got a worse game that it could have got?

both got the same?

I earlier got the impression that it was PS3 that was the lead platform. If PS3 really is superior - as you imply - then iD has removed features to come down to Xbox level... (MS rule in effect?)

360 to me looks ever so slightly sharper in some shots, but the difference is absolutely miniscule.
