Hard to tell which looks better but at least the 360 version works.

yeah im waiting for the 1.4 patch to arrive for the ps3 so they can fix the problems.

another thing i want to point out is many comparison videos do not have in particular the ps3 version set to full rgb so it makes them pointless.

anyways in this comparsion the 360 version and the ps3 versions both look fantastic.

I'm glad I got a new pc, bye skyrim ps3, hello mods!

Does it really matters? pixel-counting this game is pointless, the PS3 version is broken, I care more about Devs fixing it than if it has more/less pixels on other versions...

Gotta love me PC. This is an Elder Scrolls, i couldn't play it on a console. Saying that Bethesda have consistantly underdelivered on PS3- Fallout 3 was horrible on PS3 it was clear they didn't take enough care with it.

This is likely to be the last epic size Bethesda game this generation though, so it has taken forever to fix it on PS3, hopefully they can do better on the next generation.

Most of this is just down to the fact they lead on 360. Microsoft's advantages have often come down to them benefitting from being the lead platform.

The PS3 version is not broken. It has a few bugs, as do all Bethesda games. I have it on PS3 and my roommate had it on 360. He suffered similar frame drop rate after playing for an extended period just like I did. Its not really game breaking anyway, at least not for EVERYONE. My Skyrim is still totally playable.

The PS3/360 looks the same but goddamn...

My savefile was 16MB in the end and in almost all battles I only had 2 3 fps!

I recommened everybody to NOT play this buggy game. Crapthesda need to release a working game or don't release anything at all.

Still my brother got the platinum trophy for it, shame, this POS doesn't deserve to be in my trophy list.

Want some cheese with that wine?

The game aint buggy plays flawlessly on my PC. Infact even my laptop plays it at 60fps. I think its just the dated PS3 hardware struggling.

bodybombs2345d ago

my xbox played it fine. never had a freeze or low framerate.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh SKYRIM )) )

Each night I sing to this disk in the moon light , a rose , a balcony on the second floor . .........One lingers hopefully .
If only it would still play with my PS3 ..................

Looking at you Bethesda 1.4

PetitPiPi2345d ago

Sony needs a new console. The PS3 is having issues. It`s great at linear games though!

itsallgud2345d ago

This game runs flawlessly on the 360. Great framerates, long draw distances, great shadowing. No mandatory installs. No complaints.

Why aren't you still playing Rage instead of Skyrim?

Yeah, because no one can play the PS3 version huh? Some might just be blowing it up far more then it ever is.

I did it in 199 hours and 54 mins in 19 days straight.

Btw, liked it so much I went and got the Collectors Edition after getting the Plat on the reg game copy.

disagree all you want. Just fools and BS kids in here anyway. Stories like this are made for one reason only. For view hits.

AngryTypingGuy2344d ago

It might depend on the model of PS3 you have too. I have one of the newer ones and it works fine. It gets a little choppy in Whiterun but that's about it. Still can't wait for the 1.4 patch.

SyluxPT2344d ago

Xbox version is better.

ZBlacktt2343d ago (Edited 2343d ago )

I have two 80g PS3's both versions that I got when both came out. So it has zero to do with model.

As for as your opinion SyluxPT. It's kind of pointless seeing that I've beaten it and enjoyed it. Then Afterwards I still own the Blu-ray playing console with all the best exclusives. But for the record, I have 13 consoles going back 30 years. Even a new Xbox kinect. So it's all good.

StraightPath2345d ago

apart from the limited ram problem causing awful framerate and lag problems on the PS3. It looks nice on PS3 aswell.

but i guess its

1. PC
2. Xbox 360
3. PS3

zero_cool2344d ago

Bioware's game's work on PS3 just fine & never suffer the amount of technical problems every bethesda game has on playstation 3.'s bethesda's developers lack of experience with playstation 3's hardware.

Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!

I used to play Skyrim, but then i took an arrow to the knee.
And just to make this funnier, i must post this video! xD

cochise3132345d ago

please, no more of that arrow to the knee garbage. the novelty has worn off.

SignifiedSix2344d ago

So sad you guys cant see sarcasm. Why do you think i posted that video???

SnotyTheRocket2344d ago

@JellyJelly I still dont get that, I beat Skyrim, did lots of side quests. And I only froze twice, which is to be expected because of the large scale of the game. No lag, nothing. My PS3 loves Skyrim I guess.

BiggsnWedge2344d ago

meh I honestly wish I could downsize the graphics for better load times.. I swear I wait on it loading more then playing the game itself

There's not much of a graphical difference between them - except the framerate issues on the Playstation 3.

They both look pretty awesome. And that was a pretty dumb comment Bundi...even for you.
