Skyrim PS3 vs Xbox 360 Comparison Video.
That was quick. I take it the 360 version they are showing is without the HD texture pack installed? Every other gameplay video I've seen on 360 looks way better than this...
Lol! This is the most ridiculous "comparison" I have ever seen! All the time they compare the ps3 and 360, they have not used the hd installation for the 360! they use it once to compare the 360 "mit" or "with" the installation to without it! That is so pointless! Well, obv the ps3 full install looks better than the 360 no install. But for the five seconds of footage of the 360 version with the textures, it looked nice. Ps3 version looked v.nice too tbh. I'm glad all owners get a great looking game. If this game is even half as good as oblivion, it'll be freaking awesome! Any lucky person here managed to get their mits on it yet?!? X
The texture pack could very well be installed, apparently the 360 version goes into low res mode when you visit the menu for it to load quicker but there's a bug that prevents it from loading the textures back again when you get out of the menu. Apparently there's a patch to fix this.
the hand at the end on 360 has no textures, its a return of gourand for you.
I know. How can the Xbox360 verson look so washed? Even the HUD seems faded
Shouldn't you compare the base of both as that is most likely what people will play? Outside us gamers people don't understand the need to install texture packs.
Yeah I see what u mean... But they should say they are comparing the install ps3 to the non install 360. To compare the two is bias, as one is installed and the other is not! It's like me making a comparison video of ps3 non install, verses 360 install. Obviously, the video would just be blank for the ps3 because it needs the install! But that's my point, to do a comparison, it seems fairest to either put them on a level playing field, or at least make it clear that there are different results depending on different scenarios! X
"It's like me making a comparison video of ps3 non install, verses 360 install." But that wouldn't be the base standard for both consoles.
I think they did install the 360 version. I read that there was a weird issue with 360 version for some reason the textures don't load right when you install the game. It actually looks better when you don't install.
They talking on neogaf about this... http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
According to the developer it doesn't matter if its installed or not. http://www.examiner.com/vid...
You're right. I have both console versions. There's obviously no HD texture pack used in this video.
wow PS3 version looks so much sharper.
Yeah it does by alot, I take it the 360 version really doesn't look as bad as this vid though, whether it be a bug or no HD texture pack, i'm seriously surprised, the Ps3 version looks amazing. Yes...66% decrypted on Pc! So close. And to disagree's Seriously? That doesn't look nearly as good as any previews or leaked gameplay Ah 100%!
Maybe but console gamers claim not to care about graphics. However when X console maybe looking slightly better you will see all the fanboys supporting it. Yet when a low end PC is included in the comparison and it beats both the consoles by a mile stone, they will say... graphics dont matter its the game play.
Oh please you PC fanboy praise nothing but graphics. But even with the PC pushing better graphics its console games that get most of the media attention.
There is no HD pack. The thing is that according to many there is a bug on the 360 side of thing. This bug rears its ugly head everytime you open the inventory menu. What it does is that it fcks up your textures everytime you leave the menu. The game looks much better than this. Something tells me that the person that made that video might be a fanboy of sorts.
Dont be a coward. Tell me the reason why you disagree with me??? Those are the facts my cowardly friend like it or not.
I didn't disagree with you but now I feel like I should have. edit: done.
Because you said something that could be viewed as positive about the 360. By blaming the Devs and not the hardware What you should have said is the 360 version is worse because of inferior hardware and DVD9. It doesn't use MSAAx4 Full RGB filters etc. Then you'd get lots of agrees.
@The Meerkat lol, i cant blame it on the hardware mainly cause ive been watching videos upon videos and stream on this title since the game first got leaked to pirates. And the footage ive seen looks nothing like this.
True i shouldnt have. It was my mistake! I Apologize to all that might be offended. Now upon further watching the video. Yes its true the 360 version of the game is missing a few details such as fog on the mountains and whatnot. BUT some of those textures are ugly something which i never saw in the streams and videos ive seen before the game released. Now maybe this was my own mistake for not paying proper attention or maybe its that bug i previously talked about. We will see later once a proper comparison gets released.
LOL, I got 3 disagrees for my comment. I'll wait till a proper comparison because the 360 version looks horrible here and definitely way off from all the vids and streams I've seen. It likely is that bug you refer to because I see people complaining about it at neogaf as well.
Exactly. Ive been watching lots of streams and videos as well and the game looks much better than this. Same here ill wait for a proper unbiased comparison. In other words ill wait for Digital Foundry's comparison.
I bealive Ps3 is better.
360 starts showing its age again this year, first was battlefield 3 . PS3 FTW
Er no. I have BF3 on both consoles and with HD texture pack installed both look identical. You can even go to lens of truth or other sites for comparison vids
To be fair I think it was FF13 then L.A Noire then Portal 2 they all looked better on the PS3 before Battlefield.
BF3 looks identical on both consoles. Yet another trolling fanboy.
I've watched the video twice. It seems its not only a matter of textures, but there appears to be some graphical effects missing, ie. the fog around the distant mountains seems to be there for the PS3 while not present on the 360. I thought there was no "HD" texture pack?
There isn't, but they have said there is some glitch causing issues with texture loading on the 360. Sounds like something a patch will fix. Hopefully they get on that soon..
Im laughing my head off at all the blind fan boys on Xbox the game is good what ever the console
Looks like someone is trying to get back to 2 bubbles
this is so ironic. remember when they used to compare games on the PS3 with the full RBG turned off and people used to call it 'muddy' graphics? now here we have a more serious situation that some people won't be able to rectify without buying a hard drive and it's just a matter of a simple instillation and the differences here are not the type you'd need a magnifying glass for. don't worry though, we PS3 owners have been on your side of the fence for over three years, don't you think it's only fair that devs start actually using the PS3 properly?
that's called double standards my Friend, xbot tried to downplay anything PS3, but after this I think they will stick to PS3 exclusives don't sell argument..oh wait Uncharted 3 sold 3.8 million day one, it crushed Gears 3 in Quality and SALES.
are you sure about that? i could have sworn UC3 sold just over a million on it's first day.
Most of the time I say in these comparisons that the games look virtually identical, but here, the 360s textures made it look a lot worse.
Looking for attention?
I will wait for lens of truth and digital Foundry for a proper comparison. I only get the best version since I owned both consoles. It is a single player game so online preference and other Be is thrown out the window. If the Ps3 version is better then I will get that version. I like having choices.
Well isn't the 360 version 3.5 gigs or something and the PS3 version is if i remember correctly 5.8 gigs. Is it possible they were able to pack in better textures on the PS3 because of blu-ray? And didn't the PS3 version of Oblivion look better as well?
360 textures look like crap. While i believe that the PS3 version might have slightly better textures because its larger than the 360 version. I do not believe that textures are as bad as in the video. It has to be that famous bug that people are complaining about. It will get fixed.
