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 QUICKSAVE!!!!! Rob.
"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. JOY
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. Sorry! =D *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. http://www.makeyougohmm.com... 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
