NowGamer: Which Crysis conversion is the best, and can PS3 or 360 come close to the PC version?
Why would you take upscaled 1080p shots, when game runs at 720p? It just makes thing look muddier since its upscaled, not native. Anyways, looks hot.
The game can be played at 1080p I believe, but I don't think it is native.
Dude that flare in the first level used to KILL my pc. that flare was like the most intensive thing in crysis. im not saying anything about crysis in general its just that damn flare was like OOPS you cant run this flare at more that 10FPS. Screw that flare.
Absolutely 100% agree morganfell. It's an absolute shame you continue to only have 1 bubble. Your posts are true comments with valid information for proper discussion, whereas the same cannot be said about quite a handful of others who have more bubbles and speak a lot of BS. + Agree & + WellSaid for someone who deserves more than just 1 "bubble" to speak their mind about valid things they are well informed about .
Must we have this articles every time a new multiplat game comes out???...Oh my God a line is misssing on the gun in the 360 version so its crap...Jesus get a life!!!!!
Yes, yes we do, cuz i like em and have both systems and would like to know. Normally i would just get the PS3 version because of the free online (cuz i wont pay for Live [principle!] and i want my whole game [the online component]). But in this case there is no online. But then again, Im more into trophies now than achievements. So that's tilting me towards the PS3 version.
^ I agree I too have both and like to know which is best, even if the differences are negligible. I got it on 360 cause my 80 gig PS3 is getting full and my 250 gig 360 has plenty of room left so I hope they're identical in every aspect (including 3D).
dude buy a new hdd for ps3... you can get a 500gb for aroudn 30 bucks -_-
Another terrible comparison from NowGamer, stick to news, thanks.
This article is tagged as "News", when it's just a screenshot comparison.
Why are there these diagonal lines on the PS3 pictures? is that the game or something going on with their shots/setup. And i also cant tell if the 360 looks sharper because of the PS3's gamma setting or because its higher res like Crysis. I hope not, i hope they are equal. Not that these little differences make a big difference to me, but still.
Not even close to Killzone lets move on to real 1080p stuff??
And Killzone is native 1080p? Killzone never was anything special in terms of graphics for me.
Well that would explain everything then. I've been playing the game on a 1080p monitor, and for some reason it still looks 720p despite what the guys at Crytek said. So it's nothing more than upscaled I guess.
Only the 360 version will run at 1080p and that is due to the scaler. The PS3 is 720p only. Where did they get these images from? Smells rotten to me.
Wrong. The PS3 version also can be upscaled to 1080p... Im currently playing the game on my PS3 at 1080p but im prob gonna switch back to 720p cause i prefer to play most games at there native resolution.
Are these even captures? They almost look like off-screen camera shots.
LOOOOL.... hahaahahahaahahaaaa.... WTF what kind of joke it is NowLamer?
my thoughts exactly. some of the PS3 screenshots have strange lines going across it. especially this one: http://www.nowgamer.com/sit... EDIT: and this one (look at this face.) http://www.nowgamer.com/sit... looks a lot like off screen shots. weird.
Im wondering about that to. Is it just the shots producing that or is it the game?
they are basically identical and not the best quality pics either, maybe offscreen ? Just play the game and enjoy!
Lol they literally mean screenshots
the game on both versions still look great to me
yeah i have the ps3 version. it looks pretty good to me and im havin fun with it. its worth 20, but i wouldnt pay anymore for it.
i will never know why would any one trust "nowlamer"
Man I am really looking forward to playing this on my ___! Still need to get me a PSN card thing.
Achei um pouco melhor no Playstation 3.
Só podes estar a brincar,pelas imagens a 360 têm uma imagem mais limpa e crispy.
Drop the Chalupa lol
Drop the attitude lol
they are speaking french, get your facts straight son!
@DuEvilRyu Im sorry but both version looks great! Its not either or!
How do you bump your comparison story to the top? You make a red circle on the thumbnail.
xbox direct stream screen grab , ps3 , camera in front of tv? ive got a ps3 and havent noticed scan lines...
720p native resolution looks better than upgraded 1080p. Clearly the 360 version looks much better than the washed out PS3 version.
360 still the Mplat king. But crysis on consoles is so dull compared to the Pc version, seems like a much more hallow game. Glad I have it for pc, as it looks drastically better and plays even better.
PS3 requires mandatory installs to run most games whereas the installs on the 360 are optional. Even without installing the game on 360 it runs just as good as the installed PS3 version. 360 has a better graphics card than the PS3 and does not suffer from the games graphics being washed out. PS3 has a much faster CPU and a Blu-Ray to make up for its weaker graphics card. PS3 upgrades the game from 720p to 1080p but looks washed out. I will stick to playing the game in native 720p and avoid the washed out effect that comes with upgrading to the 1080p. PS3 is only good for its exclusive games. I prefer the multiplatform titles on the 360 and the 360 has achievement score in games.
Who cares? I play games, not specs. Trophies are better than GS, because there's trophies of different values compared to a number. The total amount of your different trophies tell a lot more than the total amount of your gamerscore.
There's a lot more involved in visual fidelity than what graphics card you have.
@numonex360 Did you Google that? We're gonna need to have a nice long talk because you clearly have 0 idea what you talking about. And the only reason I have a 360 is for gears lol, even got the 320 gig gears 360. And I don't mind mandatory installs because I can always find something productive to do while I'm wait and I got a 750 gig harddrive. Its when I start actually playing a game that I hate having to switch back and forth between games. And even when I install 360 games it doesn't improve that much and is still = with ps3 90% of the time. But again talk to me because you have no idea what your saying!
The game looks stunning, but physics are horrible, the way trees fall down is just weird.
i never liked the physics of crysis... as you said they look mostly weird except when it comes to a building falling apart.
This game could run on Nintendo 64 if Crytek wanted it to. Don't you remember the jungle level in Goldeneye? Anyways, here is the latest and greatest video showing the differences between console and PC's Very High and low settings.
Fantastic video. Finally someone who puts a console game up against a PC game on PC's terms- i.e native 1080p. This illustrates the true differences. Set that video to 1080p and enjoy....
Thank you very much! Finally a nice person who states his logical, fair opinion!
You put a lot of work in, i like how you did one very low, but i wouldn't mind seeing a video where they are compared on say just medium settings across the board. I realise this is time consuming- however i think most anybody with a reasonable graphics card can manage medium settings on the PC version. It would illustrate how even medium is better than console settings.
Wish I had heard from you earlier. I told myself not to do any more Crysis 1 comparisons, lol. I have I think 8. Currently working on an 'evolution of Uncharted 1 - 3' video. You will be able to find it along with my other video game videos and live action short films here: http://www.youtube.com/user...
i have this on my ps3 and i dont spot any of those strange lines.. nowgamer has setup gone wrong lol..... btw ps3 version can be run 1080p as well. ( upscaled)
Cant tell the difference.. How about a vid comparison?...
The AI's a bit disapointing. Too often you are spotted just because they have line of sight but there no way you would have been seen. It ruins the cat and mouse type gameplay.
Why does this look like there's jaggies everywhere and muddied out? God PC version is best version.
pc version on low-medium in 1024x720 is what it looks like to me The pc version in real 1080p even at medium low settings rocks the console version! Turn a few things up to high and add 4x AA and the console version is left almost a gen behind! Go DX10 at 1920x1080p 16x anti with everything very high and add a modd or two and you are seeing something like this; http://www.youtube.com/watc... Next gen consoles will probably not even loook that good!
