GameTrailers compares the Xbox 360 and PS3 version head-to-head. Which version is better? You decide!
Here's the HD version. - http://www.gametrailers.com...
I have played both on 360 and ps3 and believe me when i say this..
THEY ARE THE SAME 99%
I'm sick of this crap!!!
but base on this video, no one can say either is better! fanboys lets all accept the fact that most games that are multiplatform are identical now on both ps3 and 360! even if one version is a little bit better, it dosnt change the experience in a bit!
lol there is no difference... BARELYYY
This port really isnt that bad...at least from what they just showed. O and by the way. Unreal Tournament 3 PWNS!
If this is accurate, then I can officially say there is something wrong with the review sites that gave this game 2 points lower because of framerates issue, and load time. Because if this is what I'm seeing then, the difference is really miniscule, compared to what reviewers have said. That said, I would agree there is a difference, but the difference isn't worth even taking away .5 or a point.
The 360 version is clearer and the PS3 version has been dulled down. We see this eveytime :)
A blind Xbot... (probably hasn't even watched the video)
The Zhuck version is clearer and theMart version has been dulled down. We see this eveytime :)
Another fanboy comment from another typical fanboy. Who cares what he says. Its not a honest opinion. Its a biased one!
God you are so COOL for making such an awesome and enlightened comment. I wish we could hang out. There's such a huge difference between the two and it's really important to point it out, because people will only see the difference if YOU MAKE REALLY PHUQING INANE BULLSH;T COMMENTS!!!
The Reviewers made it sound like a day and night type of difference..maybe during heavy battles the frame-rate shutters...dunno still thinking of buying this or ut3
2 is better then one :)
I don't see any real difference between the two.
I'm sorry to say this but i think the wash out 1 right now is the 360 version, and by the way i'm difending any side, but in this 1 there is a difference, "there is no worst blind, than the one that don't wanna see".
wow another stupid comparison OHH shiit fanboys fight begins here again!
with their pointless comment
btw game video comparison are pointless kuzz one or another u still end up playing the damn game
becuase until MS drops the Elite to under 400bucks and i stop seeing RROD happening i wont own a 360
let me say
A price of 350 for the Elite would be hard to say no to
but right now i have Unreal COD4 Warhawk for my shooters. Might get the OB in a few months used...
the PS3 version does stutter...but not as glaringly so as reviewers have made it out to be.
Remember, people, this is EA's fault, not the fault of the PS3.
Valve chose to hand off the development because they were too lazy to perform parallel processing optimizations for the PS3.
Funny, how recently, Valve has been going on and on about how the Source engine is getting support for multi-threaded processing.
Well....the PS3 and 360 are MADE for multi-threading....yet Valve can't even get a THREE YEAR OLD GAME to run at more than 30 fps on EITHER console.
THAT pisses me off, and shows that Valve has not yet put their money where their mouth is.
How lame, man....
Also, don't tell me the Source engine needs lots of memory to run extremely well.....that's what Hard-drive caching is for on the PS3.
It's LAZY when you let "business" get in the way of making a game to its fullest.
I no longer buy any games that were made in more of a corporate atmosphere than a creative one.
That's not what we deserve as consumers.
I despise Valve now, and I have given my steam ID and password to my little brother, who really couldn't give a rat's @ss about all this.
Its business dude - accept it. If Valve did the sums (which no doubt they did) they probably calculated a certain level of profit from porting to the PS3. Using EA to do the migration probably made the deal a little more palatable as it would also free up Valve developers for something else.
However, where Valve and Sony have failed is not to impose stricter quality controls over what's released on the PS3. I cannot believe Valve were ok with this release or maybe its a protest to how little Sony has aided developers in coming to grips with the PS3. Who knows, either way you can't call Valve lazy or EA. Game development is a business and if it means wiping another 2% off profit margins because its going to take an extra 3 weeks to get to market, well, I can see what project managers and the accountants would say.
"However, where Valve and Sony have failed is not to impose stricter quality controls over what's released on the PS3. I cannot believe Valve were ok with this release or maybe its a protest to how little Sony has aided developers in coming to grips with the PS3."--------
There's a whole lot of assuming going on there, buddy
And to your comment below (13)
"However, this means nothing to the general consumer who see's a slightly inferior release on a more expensive piece of hardware."------
That sounds like a straight up fanboy comment (which you are). How can you look at this video and say that the 360 version looks better? The PS3 has a little bit better colors in this comparison video and a little less aliasing on the "lines" like the power lines, and sh1t. You're probably just going by the other videos that showed the PS3 roughing up because of the quicksaving and the loading times. Either way, this game is graphically weak by todays standards, and it should have looked a lot better on both systems
...Nothing fanboyism about my comments. Orange Box is scoring lower (by around 10%) than the 360 version. The PS3 is also more expensive. Watching a short video does not represent the quality of the complete game.
Anyway, lets say the two versions are identical. If you played them side by side in the store and then put the respective price tags up for the PS3 and the 360 which would seem a better deal to the average consumer?
I hate stupid f**ks like you that read what they want to read in a comment and then make out that everyone must be a fanboy.
...the Orange Box has not been optimised for PS3 hardware it looks pretty damn good. However, this means nothing to the general consumer who see's a slightly inferior release on a more expensive piece of hardware.
Its easy to see why the 360 is the current gaming nirvana however, will the PS3 flex its much touted muscle in 2008...or will its 10 year lifecycle be another piece of marketing propaganda.
We know that the PS3 can produce as good a quality as the 360 on multi platform games, so I wouldn't worry too much there.
Hopefully now that the developers have the correct dev kits for the PS3 and have had time with the system, the poor ports will become a thing of the past.
Unless of course companies like Valve can't be bother moving with the times and learn processors like multi thread processing.
I seem to remember the jerk who run valve saying not too long ago the PS3 forces developers to use tech they will never use in the future with things like multi threading...and yet here we are now and all the latest processors coming out are using this technology.
I just get the impression that he does not have the technical skill to move with the times, so all he can do is complain.
Only if the consumer knew slightly inferior release compared to the release on the faulty inferior hardware that is the 360!
anyway felt like flaming your comment a bit
oh yea i will be buying this game for the PS3 in the new year
I just watched the HD version and its clear as day that the PS3 version is indeed a bit on the blurry side, lighting seems to be ok but textures and colours are better on the 360 version. Look at the bit outside with the trees and foliage it looks more refreshing on the 360 but the PS3 version lacks colour.
And now the replies I will get are obvious but this doesnt change that what you have right there is PROOF of what I have said hell I am getting soo angry on the BS I might start to take people to court on here to prove I am right.
The 360 GPU shows that its features are able to give better visuals and this has been the case with every cross platform game.
What is funny though that this game came out months ago on the 360 and its now old and can be bought cheap if you look around but I guess PS3 only owners like waiting and paying more...
You obviously don't understand cross-platform issues.
Porting from 360 to PS3, and then comparing, is like having a native english speaker (360) and a hispanic (PS3) that was taught english at age 25 to compete for top score in a grammar (visuals) and english comprehension (gameplay) exam.
Obviously, the native speaker of English (360) will achieve greater scores, because that language is what his CPU (brain) is programmed (taught) to understand from conception (youth).
On the other hand....the non-native speaker (PS3) may eventually learn to be fluent in the same language, but will never have the same natural predilection (good performance) towards it that the native speaker does.
Is this getting through?
(looks into analogy bag) yep...I got plenty more if you're confused, still....
Lol, good one.
But i have to say that most Native English people cannot speak, spell or even write correct coherent english. For the most part they are lazy retards, Dropping `TH` for `F` and slurring words into one giant incomprehensible nightmare. However most Foreign English speakers that i've meet, who have learnt and practiced english for more than 5 years have a better grasp of the language than most native 20 - 25 year olds.
I know, I was in USA for about 3 months and I went to school there for about 2 months. Guess what grade I got in my English class- B, could have gotten an A, but I was to lazy to do my homeworks :D
and it not only looks great, it plays smooth too (zero slowdowns on HL2 and TF2, havent played the others yet)...great port
It ran smooth even during the part GT used for their video that supposedly showed slowdown...
PS. and to think i almost passed this one because of the reviews
both of us has OB, I can honestly tell you that, there is virtually no difference between the two. Don't believe what you read on the internet, especially when it's PS3 related. PS3 OB is a good port.
Do you both live in the same house and if not do you two have the same TV's useing the same settings on the input channels? are they both HDMI consoles?.
Sorry but We do this all the time using exactly the methods I stated above in my circle you're wrong.
we both live in the same house, I have Sony 37 HDTV and he has a Samsung 37 HDTV, we've both compared it, Half-Life 2 to be exact, and they were the same, the only difference we noticed is that, when you die in the PS3 version, it takes it longer to load than the X360 version, other than that, they were the same. Also, we both use HDMI.
Unlike Assassin's Creed, when we compared them, the X360 version looked a bit better and did not suffer from frame rates like my PS3 version. But as for OB, they were the same.
Yes ps3 version is a excellent port..UT3 is a awsome game but that halflife 2 story line sucked me away for the time being lol.
ps3 owners spoke with their wallets...xbox 360 is better...move along now. The real story is since this ps3 version was made specifically for the ps3...why the problems..why the long wait...why even bother?
I would say the 360 version has it, purely for the lighting and texture detail. Frame Rate is much more solid as well on the 360, although to be honest the port from Ea, Isn`t brilliant, it is acceptable, they have done a better job than i would have thought.
Although like i have stated before, even if i had a 360 i wouldn't buy the Orange Box, this game is ancient and forking out £45 quid just to play Episode 2 (the only one i haven`t played on my Pc) is Day light robbery. Is Episode 3 going to be downloadable content purely for Orange box i do ask?! Or are they going to release the `Newell Box` with Lard and episode 3 ;).
and orange box only cost me £24 from asda so even if you have played HL2 and HL2-EP1 your still getting portal team fortress and EP-2 for just £24 and in my opinion the graphics are as good as any on the 360 especially ep2 it's alot better than halo3
to be honest it looks identical to me. would be nice when there would be cs on the ob. by the way ut3 rocks very hard!
1-PS3 version looks better than 360 version ( look at the colors you blind wankers )
2-As an honest person Xbox 360 has better FPS. If you disagree me, you are lying to yourself.
If you think both versions are the same then good for you, buy the 360 version.
Another lame comparison video! YAY!!!!
I can vouch for the 360 version being incredible and the PS3 version looks pretty good too.
I see Gametrailers finally learned how to set the PS3's HDMI range to full :)
Paractically no difference between the two, except the PS3 version looked as if EA touched it up a bit, the colours look a little better.
Looks like EA did an alight job after all. Maybe they're actually starting to learn how to work the PS3. We can only dream...
PC Version is the best!
it was made on pc first, ps3 exclusives crush pc exclusives and thats the BOTTOM LINE
the ps3 take 5x longer too load a crapyer version that the xbox loaded in 15 sec
Actually the PS3 only took approximately 4 to 6 seconds longer to load the same areas.
Exaggeration will get you nowhere here.
well obviously the video wasnt long enough to show the framerate issues on the ps3. the videos on gamersyde showd a bunch of framedrops during the boat parts
Who cares ?!? Orange box is not that great, the graphics are craptastic on both consoles, the MP is glitchy at best with 6 freakin maps. I cannot believe this game was ever mentioned in anyone's GOTY awards. And I really dont care for the fat guy that developed the game & thinks consoles are trash. Screw that fat bastard, Halflife was a great game in it's day, but that day has definately long since passed. I'll take COD4, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Uncharted, Assassin's Creed, ...even HS or R&C over the Orange box of crap. Peace out.
Framerate is where we know the ps3 version suffers most. There's a smooth frame rate for the Xbox 360 version and a stumbling frame rate for the ps3, but even with that it's still a great buy for any console.
The 360 clearly takes it again.
ARE RIDICULOUS. WHO GIVES A SH;T? IT THERE IS ANY DIFFERENCE IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO BE TALKING THIS MUCH ABOUT IT. IF YOU SEE IT, FINE, DO WHAT YOU FEEL AND PLAY THE ONE YOU WANT TO PLAY.
The 360 version looks a little brighter and sharper. Other than that they are virtually the same, except the 360 version runs smoothly during vehicle sequences, while the PS3 version is choppy.
The 360 version also gives achievements. It's the superior version.
