Kotaku: Let’s Compare Modern Warfare 3 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC

Last time a big war game hit store shelves, we ran YouTube user Robbaz' Battlefield 3 comparison video. For this week's release of Modern Warfare 3, there's another, helpful companion reel courtesy yet again of Robbaz. Which version looks best to you, readers?

The story is too old to be commented.

PC>360>PS3 like all previous versions.

It's really apparent when they show the sub scene starting at the 1:33 mark. Look at the lines on the building in the center; the one to the right of the player's crosshairs. They're jaggy and move on the 360, wildly flashing on the PS3, and extremely clean on the PC. That PS3 footage looked really bad there. And, I say that as a PC/PS3 owner. If I were to get this game, it would definitely be the PC version.

This is a large benefit to high resolution and AA, no jaggies anywhere, if there is one thing that drives me crazy visually, it's the shimmering effect seen from jagged edges on those buildings.

Anyone remember when, months before Gran Turismo's release and after a week of bashing GT5 for any reason they could possibly come up with, Kotaku went so far as to post obviously faked video of GT5's "loading issues" and then use it to launch another of their "Why GT5 sucks" articles?

And then, when busted on it they didn't retract the article but just left an update saying "Oh. We didn't know it was fake. We don't verify our videos. Who does that?"

Yeah... Video footage from Kotaku. Have fun with that.

I don't play these games, but even the PC version looks pretty 'meh' to me. Is the gameplay really that good that graphics, even from a technical standpoint, get completely thrown aside? I think I have CoD4 that I can pop in and try out, would that give me a good idea of the current CoD games?

Majin-vegeta2412d ago

Yes they all look the same just the newer ones have seem more dead in color than cod4-_-.But all the fun you will have in cod4 is gone in the newer versions.

PC at high resolution looks clean but pretty unremarkable. All the effects in place to allow the game to run on console at 60FPS, stuff like low polygon counts and flat textures, lo res alpha textures.....none of them have had any effort put into them on the PC platform.

The upside is that you don't need a great PC to run the game maxed.

The downside is if you have a great PC then sit back and see all that power going to waste. Watch as your 2600k and GTX570/6970 etc chew this up to the tune of a MINIMUM framerate of 70FPS+ on max @ 1080p. http://www.pcgameshardware.... 1080p being nearly 3 and a half times the resolution this renders on console!

I really do not like to see zero effort put into PC ports.

CoD 4 is amazing. The rest are very meh. I would just play that one over the newer ones.

killcycle2412d ago

They all look average, nothing next gen here

yea im a huge ps3 fan but cod looks better on 360 for some reason. the graphics still look like a 2007 game though.

Same as all the other comparisons, the video just shows the minor differences in brightness and contrast between each platform. PC version will obviously look smoother due to higher resolution but you can't really see that in a YouTube video.

TheIneffableBob2412d ago

Do 1080p full screen, the differences are very clear.

Pc - 360 - Ps3 in that order.

Imo IW need to patch the ps3 version of mw3 didnt stop them charging people £89.99 for the hardened edition.

This, its to hard to develop for bull don't wash anymore. Uncharted 3, BF3 just a few of the exsamples of why i know its bull they talk.

There was improvments with the black ops patches so hopes are still held out for the ps3 version imo. But its still a shame IW won't get there act together for the gamers.

End of the day that beyond all this fanboyism crap etc i buy my games for each console. I want the consoles i buy my games on to preform to what they are capable of. To have a company that is blantantly holding back because of an exculsive deal is just out of hand imo.

How hard is it to port a game thats still running on a bloody modified cod2 engine ey -_-. End of the day we are all paying customers and we all deserve better imo.

Thank god this is the end of the Modern Warfare saga maybe the nest game will bring with it a new engine.
