Are ps3 games really washed out compared to xbox 360?

This should prove that most comparisons where the PS3 seems washed out are wrong. Here's why...

Oh is true I see the change

it's about time someone has proven that gametrailers.com videos use an inferior setting on the ps3 which makes the colors look worse when compared side by side to xbox 360.

over and over we have seen these videos on every multiplat game and it makes me sick. they have the where-withall to record both games side by side with that moving bar in the middle, but cannot adjust the ps3 settings to make a fair comparison.

i own both consoles, and i will not be using gametrailers.com videos for any decisions on what version to buy, there are many other sites out there. do not trust news from n4g either, its always biased one way or the other.

i have a 360 with halo 3, dead rising, lost planet, and gears, xbl gold member. im a captain in halo 3 which is a great game.

i also have a ps3 with warhawk, r&c, oblivion, rb6 vegas, high velocity bowling (awesome game), pain, among others. i plan on getting uncharted for xmas (the demo is awesome!!). i find myself playing the 360 for fps and ps3 for everything else.

im getting my ps3 today, so i guess i leave superwhite and rgb full "OFF".

edit: "on"

Why does turning on Super White make the game so dark you can barely see in some spots?

...if everything looks better with these options on, why does Sony have them in the first place? I'm not trying to troll here. It just seems to me that if it looks better with these options on, why would Sony have them off by default? Why would they have an option at all that would make the video output look worse?

Is it to make the game look better on standard definition televisions?

you all do know that this video is a fake. The video of assassin's creed is the comparison video, the part where he is like limited and full comparisons is just stamped over the 360 and ps3 signs. i remember how the video comparison went, and how it wasn't entirely synced at some parts. These are the exact same parts.

I'm not saying that by changing these settings that (your TV has to support) are not going to make a difference, but just that the video he has running of AC is fake.

Good question, I don't know the answer but here is a better question. Why does the PS3 only come with Audio Video cables? Would it be hard to at least include composite?

this is not a comparison, not a reputable source, just a video blog. not news.

This DOES nothing to retort the Game Reviews poasted by the reputable editorial organizations.

THIS IS NOT NEWS. REPORT AS LAME.

for limited and Full, is because some older HDMI enabled TV's cannot handle the full RGB range (have 16-255 instead of 0-255). If you set Full RGB on a set that doeant support full RGB it will look too dark.

Check this board: -

The original page for testing has been pulled off Gameswank, but it originally let you download a greyscale chart that you could view on your tv through the PS3. With Full RGB on and adjustment to brightness you should be able to see most of not all the boxes to deterimne wether your TV supports Full. I tested it and My TV works well, and looks fabulous with this set on.

When I look at Gametrailers comparisons, first I laugh at the piss poor encoding quality, even the HD streams look SH!T secondly I wonder if they even USE HDMI on PS3. It looks like they are using Component.

I agree, I used to wonder why Motorstorm looked washed out and then I changed to those setting and it was no more washed out(even the PS2 emulation comparison, people used to say PS3 is washed out, this is probably the culprit).

toughNAME3417d ago (Edited 3417d ago )

Microsoft must have paid off Sony to make the procedure more difficult than it has to be, so it SEEMS like the 360 version looks better

Oh, and they also paid off GameTrailers for good measure

...and YouTube

...Just because they didn't want to be carrying around all that change in their pocket
