Video Comparison between PS3 and 360 Orange Boxes
the framerate on the ps3 version is really bad.
buying UT3 over this i suggest everyone do the same if you only own a ps3 also it only lags because THE PS3 IS QUICKSAVING DURING THE TIME IT STUTTERS THAT IS WHY what a pathetic piece of sh$t xbox fanboy thought it would be funny to start a flame war?
Why even release this game? Who at EA thought this would sell, and who the retard that allowed this to be released. Makes EA look like amateur developers.
...would it be better to have not released it at all on the PS3?
You have to think about how many copies this would have sold on the PS3 even if the game engine had been optimised. Lets face it, there is a real issue with PS3 attach rates. I'm thinking EA did the math and projected that with or without a smooth framerate there was only so much profit to be made.
This is however a real shame. Half-Life 2 and the follow up episodes are brilliant but the choppy frame rate is a complete and utter put off. I wonder what Valve make of all of this - do they not care that their trademark franchise has been lost in translation?????
Look in the corner, it says "QUICKSAVING...." The game is stuttering because it's saving your game. The framerate goes smooth again after the quicksaving is done.
"You have to ask yourself...
...would it be better to have not released the PS3 at all, until it was ready?"
Anyhow a good question nevertheless..
Agreed, I noticed the same thing, the only place where it frame drops was while it was quicksaving, after that it was a smooth ride
On this video the frame rate problem happens when on jet ski funny that the person playing pressed for a quicksave to be done! 360 version
does it have quicksave?. LOOK AT TOP LEFT CORNER STUTTERS BECAUSE OF
QUICKSAVING WHEN THAT STOPS FRAME RATE OK YOU HAVE TO PRESS KEY TO START
"Who at EA thought this would sell, and who the retard that allowed this to be released." Answer, Peter Moore....
The 360 version autosaves too. But they did not have to add that icon to make you feel better about the drop in frames per second.
Wow, if you have to squint in order to see differences then who cares. Half Life sucks anyway. It was cool back in 1999, but FPS have since changed. Driving a car, boat, and having a squad couldn't make that game any worse.
agreed...even though its not as bad as i thought it was after reading some of the main websites previews...
Agreed I expected it to be horrible on the PS3 because of all the negativity around this game. But after seeing that and a few other videos. I might get this game on the PS3 because I just beat Uncharted and COD4 and need a good single player game. I bought Unreal Tournament III today and I love this game but I mainly play it online.
You need to get this game. I never played any half life games until I got the Orange Box for 360 and I have to say it is one of my favorite games. Everything is really well done as far as story and graphics. Plus you get Portal which is a really fun puzzle game and Team Fortess is pretty good mulitplayer.
From the looks of this vid the framerate should not deter anyone from a truly amazing game. If anything give it a rent first, but at least play 3 or 4 hours into HL2 before you give up on it. The story gets better and better the more you play.
i only noticed the framerate during the bike scene. 360 version is smooth thru out but frame rate only got bad on the water bike thing for ps3. visually they are almost the same but 360 has the upper hand. textures look better on 360 version IMO
that is why it stutters what a cheap shot who ever made this video
Chalk up another game for the 360. I wish they did a quality job for you PS3 only people, though. I mean, Half Life 2 is one the the best games ever!
I thought the PS3 version had the slight upper hand when it came to the visuals; colours looked vibrant, particularly at the start of the video. Frame rate is an issue in that game however.
I have to agree, I got it on my 360 bc I didn't want to wait, and the PS3 looks the slightest better in visual, yet in the most important factor it skipped in framerate. You can take away visual so the gameplay is silky smooth.
at the beginning was because the 360 was on the dark side whereas the PS3 was the left side where the SUN WAS SHINING...
man, no one else thought of that??
This game runs alot smoother than Mass Effect on the 360. Mass Effect has the worst Frame Rate and texture loading issues of any game I have ever played. If i can deal with that then I can deal with the Orange Box on the PS3.
PS3-spin in effect
"Hey, the ps3 version looks better because the sun is shining on our side"
Mass effect does not have the worst frame rate issues. I've played that game through and through, and everything from the conversations, to gun fight battles are no frame rate issues. The only time I've seen a hint of frame rate issue was the auto save, which drum roll please... Is the same thing that's happening with HL2. a game with frame rate issues was oblivion for xbox360 now that's a game with frame rate issues, and the game was still incredible. Shrimpboat, let me ask you a question, would you by HL2 over Mass effect?
What kind of *&^t you're smoking?! Mass Effect has more load times, but frame rate issues?! Naa, bro!!
360 version is better, who's surprised?
but hey its a great game so enjoy it for whatever console you own, I actually haven't pick this game up yet, It's getting so hard to find enough time to play all these great games.
Both look great, when it isn't in motion, but once things start moving, the frame rate dips, the long loading times really hurt it. And those are inexcusable, especially considering that the PS3 version is only running at 720p and that the PS3 has a fvcking HDD that could have been utilized to minimalize loading times, which makes this port a no buy for me. Plus, this is footage from fvcking Half-Life 2, a three year old game! WTF EA?
The 360 does not render ANYTHING at 1080p, smartypants.
It renders at 720p and scales it up.
*you can research that too, if ya like ;-)
Although if you weren't referring to the 360 rendering it higher than 720p, then you can disregard my comment =)
hmmm simpsons suck and must be the reason for your delusion.
your exact words we're
"Xbox 360 does not RENDER ANY THING at 1080p"
But then again Microsoft didn't bank alot of their hype by saying all games would be 1080p;)
Actually, there are some 1080p native games. I believe Virtua Tennis 3 is rendered natively in 1080p, as well as an EA sports game.
gabe may have made a great series but he is definitely stuck on old ways of programming and thus badmouthed the console his game was going to come on (ps3) he must really hate money because if he had kept his trap shut i might have still bought the game but his badmouthing coupled with crappy EA port just makes me want to buy UT3 on my break from college after my exam tomorrow.
Gabe Newell is an @sshole.
I've got it rented on 360 right now and I'm almost done witth Half life 2 but the turret guns in Team Fortress are SOOO annoying... next I'm looking at UT3 for my new PS3!
The PS3 version surprisngly looks visually better the colors are vibrant..but it has frame rate probs..honestly I was expecting EA to really fvck up on this one...but why can't they just get the damn thing right everyone else has...
The 360..version looks kinda washed out
it's a tie...ps3 has better graphics....the 360 runs lil smoother..!!
but the PC version wins...lol
what does that mean??? explain the logic in a statement like one company deserves the money more than the other? pretty sure the company that made the unreal engine 3 has made plenty of money. and their product isn't as good...of course that second statement is an opinion but i'm sure most ppl agree that half life 2 will go down as one of the best games of all time. and that bundled with a ton of expansions, portal which is pretty much loved by all, AND a great multiplayer game just not sure how you can say a rehash of a game that came out 8 years ago only now runs on a diffy engine is the game that deserves the money.
What he said, its a tie. They both look great but they both have one different problem. 1 demerit each equals a tie.
Actualy, the PS3 version suffers from long loading times AND frame rate issues. While the xbox 360 does NOT looked washed out. I bought the game and finished it. You PS3 fanboys are seriously in denial. Just accept that the PS3 got another crappy port from EA and move on. It doesn't mean that the PS3 is bad, it's just a crappy port.
Don't buy this game!
UT3 deserves your money 10x more than this game.
I say get UT III and Orange box. I have UT III and decided to get Orange Box also after I beat Mass Effect. I hear Half life is a must play and Team Fortress looks very cool.
Another multiplatform game better on the 360. You can add this to recent releases of Assassins Creed and COD4 that is better on the 360. This is one of the highest rated FPS ever created. Graphics and framerate are best on the 360.
Sucks for ps3 owners!
cod4 is way better on the ps3, the developers admitted it. saying "they put there better developers on the ps3 game and it shows." as for this, its just a crappy port what do you expect.also i have assassins creed for the ps3 and it runs amazing i have no problems with it. and if games like these make you think bad of the ps3, i have one word for you. "uncharted"
uncharted the AA game that was hyped AAAA......hmmmm and is still selling like crap in japan.
Does not matter if it's AAA or AAAA or AA or A. Uncharted is a great game, plays great looks stunning. Unless you played through Uncharted don't bad mouth it please ;)
Uncharted is definitely one of the most under-hyped games this year. If you want an idea of what it's like, think of a fast-paced next-gen resi 4 with platforming and less horror. It's a fantastic game with a brilliant story.
... do they always have to compare multiplatform games on the 360 and PS3? why???
A good pc will blow away the 360.
And empty most peoples pockets in the progress as well. But yeah, it would do it.
lol... duhh Sony fanboys will say the game looks better on the PS3... lol.. I think the game look Identical.. one thing I did noticed.. and I'm sure you Sony fanboys noticed to... is how the game loads faster on the xbox 360... mmm.. I wonder why.
that.. and that the PS3 version look like is going in slow motion.. due to all the frame rate issue... probably beacause of the xbox 360 superior Memory.
I think we have a record here. We got this far with mature conversation until this fanboy comment. Keep it up folks.
"that.. and that the PS3 version look like is going in slow motion.. due to all the frame rate issue... probably because of the xbox 360 superior Memory."
Are you just retarded, or do you choose to come across as an idiot? On what planet does the 360 have superior memory? Do you not understand anything about memory? You rent-a-fanboys are getting annoying.
I'm glad you are trying to be observant but watch the clip again. Notice how the top left of the PS3 version clearly states the game is quick saving during the water scene near the end. Do you think it is a fair comparison to compare the framerate of one game that is saving, to one that isn't?
If it had anything to do with memory then the PS3 would win in that category. the PS3 moves data in and out of memory 10x faster than the 360. But it has nothing to do with memory it is the time it loads from the disc. If you choose the install option (which they did not use in this video which lets me know a 360 fanboy did the comparison) the PS3 version loads way faster than the 360 version because it caches data on the hard drive.
Don't let this video fool you. THE PS3 VERSION LOADS FASTER THAN THIS FANBOY VIDEO.
I never noticed that quicksaving bar before you said that. And as soon as the quick save is done *poof* no more bad framerate...amazing. good eye foliage.
that a game as stellar as half-life should have to deal with an @sshole like Gabe Newell, AND suffer through an incompetent PS3 port with shoddy framerates.
I will NOT, I repeat, NOT, play this game without having a fully smooth experience. That's the only way this game should be played.
I shouldn't have to deal with the game slowing down to 15 fps while driving the watercraft. That's just shoddy developer work.
Yeah, so the game looks slightly better on PS3, but give me a rock-solid framerate ANY DAY instead of having to compensate for that god-awful laggy sh!t.
Screw Gabe Newell and his disrespect for Sony and their new system; I will not buy it for any console, period.
I only way I ever played this game was on a gaming PC at 100 fps (how it SHOULD be played), and I'll never play it on anything else.
100fps how it should all ways be played *laughs hard* lol there is nothing that can be said to that, just laughing at you is enough.
at the beginning.
They even tried to help the PS3 out evidently b/c they gave it
the sunny side of the canal, it is not more vibrant,
that was a real stupid comparison considering they weren't equal shots, they should have switched sides in the middle b/c it gives the illusion the PS3 is more colorful, when in reality it was just the lighting from the sun casting on the left side.
i was going to get this game when i bought a PS3 too, but yeah only if EA at least fixed up the framerate then this would have been good. but damn just the framerates and some textures. BUt for sure i would probably get this one for 360, the orange box is one thing you need to fully enjoy ithout framerate issues
I'm never able to play those gametrailers movies....I don't know why...
I just noticed that whoever was playing the PS3 version had just pressed select to QUICKSAVE the game while on the watercraft!
Didn't anyone notice that?
No WONDER the framerate sucked ass there....he was saving the goddamned game!
Watch it again....look at the PS3 screen.
The 360 version wasn't quicksaving....well, actually, the 360 version doesn't have the quicksave feature.
and that would definitely account for a drop in the framerate... seems a little suspicious. I mean, the framerate wasn't 100% smooth on the ps3, but that was the only section that I really noticed as being bad. Hardly makes for a fair comparison.
The 360 guys are trying to pull a fast one on PS3 owners again. They guy who created this video saved the game while riding on the boat to slow the game down. Look at the video guys. Good catch CoeusTitan
wow quick saving must take 2-3 minutes on the ps3 because thats how bad the frame rate dropped in that sequance...lol sorta defeats the purpose of quicksave...
then everything went downhill from there. Framerate is very noticeable.
Watch the video again.
I just noticed the quicksave icon as well. Why would they do that? the gameplay seems to speed up once it's done quicksaving.
Whatever, it's a great game for both consoles regardless. just like mass effect, the positives far outweigh the negatives.
I don't know why they did it. Really weird when you think about it.
Honestly PS3 version looks better ( 360 a little bit washed out ) but I can see FPS issues on PS3
I only have a PS3 and I can not run orange box on my PC. So I have made my choice. I bought UT3, no dips in Frame rates, pretty as a playboy playmate. I will pick up Orange box for ps3 after it drops in price to like $30. I am not paying $65 ( after sales tax) on a crap port. No thanks.
I got UT III also and it is a great game. I will get Orange Box when its time to trade something else which will be this weekend.
I also wantted this game for my PS3 after My xbox360 got the Red ring of Death... But after I heard about the Ps3 version I will rather wait and bay it when it is cheap...
The only place in the video that I notice there were some frame issue was when he was ridding the Moterbike...
