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...

RBlaze2390d ago

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?!?

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.

BattleTorn2390d ago

I know. How can the Xbox360 verson look so washed?
Even the HUD seems faded

buddymagoo2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

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.

RBlaze2390d ago

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!

"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.

Cerbus2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

Not true.

d3nworth12390d ago

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.

According to the developer it doesn't matter if its installed or not.

MultiConsoleGamer2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

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.

RedDead2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

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%!

decrypt2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

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.

d3nworth12390d ago

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.

WetN00dle692390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

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.

WetN00dle692390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

Dont be a coward. Tell me the reason why you disagree with me??? Those are the facts my cowardly friend like it or not.

Shanks2390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

I didn't disagree with you but now I feel like I should have.

edit: done.

The Meerkat2390d ago

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.

WetN00dle692390d ago

@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.

WetN00dle692390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

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.

WetN00dle692390d ago (Edited 2390d ago )

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.
