Holy ice balls! That looks awful man!

The PS3 version does.

CoD always looked worst on PS3 for some reason. But they still didn't figure out how to make them look equal after all these years. It's like they are making CoD on the PS3 for the first time.

I'm a PS3 gamer myself but in this case PS3 is the clear looser. Terrible lighting and those jaggies are painful.

guitarded772567d ago

Have to admit the jaggies on the power lines are horrendous... and they are shot at the same angle. I pre-ordered on PS3 because I have more friends there, but I knew the XBOX would look better... still looks pretty bad on both though.

darthv722567d ago (Edited 2567d ago )

I dont think the main focus of the game is how well the power lines look. In fact, it isnt about the graphics its about the run and gun and trying not to get killed.

So if you have time to stop and smell the roses and look for jaggies then you will be an easy target to level up on.

Good for you guitarded. You at least can admit you got the game for the platform you have more friends on. If it were only so simple for others to make the same decisions.

@ares. that wasnt directed at you specifically. It is more of a general statement. There are those players that will literally stop in the middle of a game just to look around at stuff.

Pixel_Enemy2567d ago

What do you expect, the engine is at least 4-5 years old and showing it's age. Year after year the game adds new maps, perks, features and game types onto what is essentially still COD4.

Ares84HU2567d ago


First off, this article IS about the graphics and not the gameplay. I'm sure it's the same exact game and can be enjoyed the same exact way but we aren't talking about that.

Did I ever say that all I care about is graphics??? No, I did not. So how did you came up with the idea that I stop in an online match to look around and admire the graphics is beyond me.

But, we don't have to worry about that because I won't be getting it. When Activision decides to actually make a proper new CoD game that doesn't look and play exactly like CoD4 than I might be thinking about getting a new CoD game. enough is enough. I'm tired for paying for the same game year after year with none to minor improvements.

They didn't even bother ... and I mean to say didn't even bother at all with PS3 Version ...

And I mean to say Developers ... for the love of God .. u didnt even manage to port the game for PS3 and simply made it Wii version.

A-Glorious-Dawn2566d ago

what saddens me is that this shoddy port, and game will be one of the best sellers on PS3..

To be fair (and I'll wait for DF before I judge)
if this port is as shoddy as those screens make it seem, then I fear to admit that Treyarch actually did a better Job with their shoddy port..

Infinity ward made the game equal on both platforms and as much as people hate on MW2. I had huge respect for what they did with it..

Since MW2, CoD has been and insult to gamers...

buddymagoo2566d ago

It's the community and gameplay that sells this game and not the graphics. Knowing there will always be a large amount of players playing online makes you feel comfortable in the purchase. It may not have a graphics increase but neither do games like Fifa, Madden and even Mario but they sell well because of the community and the gameplay. People should know this by now.

Ares84HU2566d ago


I think Paper Mario is very different from Mario Galaxy, don't you think so???

As for FIFA, I only buy a FIFA game every 5 years because by than there are noticeable differences. But CoD have not changed AT ALL since CoD4. Maybe different modes or "new guns" and new maps but it's the same exact thing over and over again. I agree with the saying which is "what's not broken don't fix it" but also "What's become stale and boring needs a breath of fresh air".

Next time I buy a CoD game will be when there is a brand new engine a tons of change. while still keeping the CoD spirit.

At this point, they could make whatever and slap the CoD name on it and it would sell close to 10million on it's first week of release. So why don't they try???? I tell you why, because it costs more money to make something new instead of using the same exact thing OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER again.

You want to be confident that people play online and the community is good?? There are other, better alternatives out there like BF3.

megacowdung2566d ago (Edited 2566d ago )

They have been making games on 360 and PS3 forever. There is absolutely no way the ps3 version can look that bad. I'm 110% sure they made ps3 version look worse on purpose. If you look at the tech specs, ps3 is more powerful than 360 but it has a different "BIOS" if you want to compare it to computers (I think BIOS is the wrong term but i hope you understand what i'm saying, basically they script for writing the games is different on ps3 than 360).

MaxXAttaxX2566d ago

PS3 has poor anti-aliasing.

They both look shit.

Wow. Did they even try with the PS3 version? I mean WOW it looks bad. And we all know that the PS3 can do much better than that.

Kur02567d ago

I'm not one for conspiracy theories but it honestly seems like Microsoft is actually paying money to Activision to make the PS3 version look worse because MW3 doesn't even look that impressive in the first place so it shouldn't have these kind of problems on the PS3 this late in the generation.

Gamer-Z2567d ago (Edited 2567d ago )

The game looks last gen plane and simple but since its COD it will get a pass like always.

Persistantthug2567d ago

Microsoft pays Activision extra for Call Of Duty games, and the final product always shows this.

It's complete bullsh17 and PS3 peeps need to stop buying this nonsense every freakin year just to get sh177ted on with this lazy ass port.

It's a damn shame is what it is.

*goes back to playing BF3*

SSultan2566d ago

One of the reasons I own a 360 now so late in its life cycle is due to the frustration that comes with multiplats and the PS3. I hope you're playing BF3 on PC though... Any other way and you are gimping the real, true experience.

zeddy2566d ago

well thats unanimous. i was looking forward to playing sp later but i shant bother now.

ps3 version has WAY BETTER LIGHTING.
360 version has less jaggies. i give it a tie.

look at the first pic, i can see the ps3 version has more detail on the guys face, i can see it clearer.

on the same pic, the 360 version has way less jaggies though.

WetN00dle692567d ago (Edited 2567d ago )

To be honest, i cant see any shadows whatsoever on the Ps3 side of things.

capcock2567d ago

"Ps3 version has way better lightning"

are u blind? 360 has bloom and tbh everything looked better on 360, textures looked higher res, less jaggies etc. and I'm pretty sure that it will perferm better also.

DonaldBeck2567d ago

wow, calling me a retard is pretty harse and disrespectful huh? reported for personal attack.

Tonester9252567d ago

Bloom? They put the sun... in a lamp! lol I never seen a lamp shine so bright lol They should've done without it to be honest

AntBoogy902566d ago


Where do you see the word "retard"? :|

Venjense2566d ago

While I think 360 looks better, it's lighting is pretty bad.

Excessive bloom + Crushed blacks= No detail

It's like the 360 is stuck on super-high dynamic contrast which is a very bad thing if you looking for a quality visual image.

It gives it more pop but you can't see any details, it's like a TV at Best Buy's store version settings agains a calibrated.

well the LOT poll disagrees with you.

let them, i dont give a shit

Ares84HU2567d ago

Actually, the 360 version has way better lighting. The 360 version has way better everything.

The PS3 version looks like that there is a constant fog. Looks washed out. Shame that after all these years they can't make the two versions look equal.
