Wow that is a blur fest on the 360.

decrypt2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

Comparison is pointless.

Console gamers.. Dont care about graphics. Its why they game on 6 year old hardware.


Bickering over pixie differences doesnt = caring about graphics.

kevnb2093d ago

sure they do, look at what happens when 360 and ps3 games are compared. Or even when a new console comes out. Or better yet, when a new uncharted game comes out.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

"Console gamers.. Dont care about graphics."

You have said that 11 times I think.

Console gamers care about graphics.

I think the 360 version of the character is drunk. Everything is so blurry!
Alan wake is the same.

540p 30fps on 360 lol.

Bimkoblerutso2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

I think console gamers are just aware that "graphics" consist of more than simply the sum of a game's tech.

ZeroX98762093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

console gamers prefer buying a system and having support for it for more than 5 years without having to buy new hardware at a not too high price.

PC Gamers prefers buying a system with high specs to run their games to the max and are ready to pay a bit more for a whole different experience of gaming.

Console gamers just prefer getting the more bang for their bucks (console-related), hence why the comparison between 360 and PS3. Or they're simply just fanboys

inveni02092d ago

This comparison is bull crap. The PC has been sharpened, the 360 blurred. It's quite obvious.

showtimefolks2092d ago


we care about graphics but we are not dicks about it like some of you pc gamers. PC is better than console there i said it, i am a console gamer only.

its like every article pc gamers have to come and tell us how awesome pc games are, yeh we get it but do you get the MS,Sony,Nintendo exclusives? do you get a lot of games from RS day one at launch?

do you have DRM?
Do you have Piracy issues?

Isn't PC's piracy the real reason we have online passes?

we care about graphics but with our games to e God of war looks stunning, to me the snow in Uncharted 2 looks stunning, to me halo 4 looks stunning

go ahead tell me how great those games would look on PC, But guess what we have em on console while y'all don't so you win some and you loose some

can't wait to Buy ps4,xbox720 while you buy a new PC or keep upgrading it every 2 years, yet my 7 years old console keeps delivering stunning games

its not about the tools but how you use it lol

BitbyDeath2092d ago

Gameplay should always come first over graphics.
If you're only into graphics then you really shouldn't be playing games.

juandren2092d ago

If you care about graphics and not about gameplay why do you even game? Just step outside. The world has amazing graphics. I can send you some photos of the environment and REAL LIFE PEOPLE if you want?

NewZealander2092d ago

i couldn't care less about the graphic difference, lets face it theres no point, we all know the current gen has got old.

for me as a console gamer anything released now is just filler until the next gen consoles arrive, thats when ill care about graphics again.

Nafon2092d ago

There is a reason you only have one bubble. go sit in the corner.

AO1JMM2092d ago

All of you fed this troll.

knowyourstuff2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

It isn't that console gamers don't care about graphics, it's that they want to get the best graphics that they possibly can given their financial means. If you can't afford a 1000 dollar PC to get Crysis 3 running on max settings, labelling that person as someone who doesn't care about graphics isn't exactly fair, nor smart. It's like labelling starving people in Africa as "people who don't care about food".

mynameisEvil2092d ago


Long story short: I don't hate consoles. But they do represent some very old hardware and they constantly show the limitations of such old hardware. Don't get me wrong, some of the games on the systems are fantastic, but it's stupid to pretend as though they're just as good as PCs. The thing with PCs is that they are constantly evolving. The thing with consoles is that it's just not their nature to evolve. It's for THAT reason that PCs are better gaming systems.

Before people mark this as trolling and hating on consoles, keep in mind that it was a comment explaining what is mostly wrong with console gamers and some of their inane arguments rather than the consoles themselves.

PS. My comment was too large to post. But none of your arguments are either factually incorrect (concerning DRM and PC piracy causing online passes, since Uncharted 3 and Resistance 3 had them) or your statements cross over to consoles, too (console piracy is incredibly rampant, the least so in PS3).

d3nworth12092d ago

True console gamers dont care about graphics. I game on both PC and Ps3 but mostly the Ps3. Not because i dont care for graphics but because it more convenient. Plus I know every game that comes out for it will run. No need to worry about system specs. At the end of the day its the same game. I dont see the point of nagging over pixels.

the xbox version look like a ps2 game when you put it aganist the pc version ...
even if you compare it to top 3rd party titles on consoles
it doesn't look good at all
as you said this is a "blur fest"
....what the hell crytek ?
crysis 3 look worse than crysis 2 on consoles ?!0_o?!

pc version for me

angelsx2093d ago

Where is the promised DX11 graphics on consoles?

mr_kubrick2092d ago

I bet 1000 bucks u havent played it.
The MP on 360 looks way better then Crysis 2. I was quite surprised how crisp and sharp it was. AA looks good, Lighting is easily the best on Consoles.

But a Sony Guy with TLOU as an avatar....well, that explains everything....usual trolling....

GearSkiN2092d ago

looks like a ps2 games? sounds to me that u havent played game much, as you can see xbox360 from ps2 xbox1 era is a huge job. even for an old console. comparing it to pc the graphics is not as low as you make it out to be... and yes my whole house is a gamefest PC, anc console. so i know.

ExCest2092d ago


Those will not come until next-gen. Consoles barely run games on a DX9 equivalent.

Ezz20132092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )


wait what ?!! i said i'm going to buy pc version
did i say "teh ps3 version is teh best " ??!
i know both ps3/360 version will look and play the same
but i'm going with pc

.. how is that makes me a ps3 fanboy or a troll??!!
because i have different opinion than you ??

and this a multiplat game not xbox exclusives
and if you even look at my account you will see i own xbox

as it seems logic and commensense left N4G long ago


mr_kubrick2092d ago

@ ezz

So u "know" they play the same and the final product looks like a ps2 compared to pc....again I ask you: DID YOU PLAY BOTH THE PC AND THE XBOX-DEMO????? I doubt it....but looking at you post history shows u cleary are a sony slave and you will NEVER every say anything good about the Xbox...

slaton242092d ago

of course thats not what the image looks like the 360 is a little better than that...sure it has 2005 tech but its not that bad at all this is just somethinga pc user more than likely did.....go ahead pc gamers disagree i do not care

IAmLee2092d ago

probs require a few extra texture packs..

ATi_Elite2092d ago

WoW the Xbox360 version looks like utter GARBAGE! The player is either drunk or has cataracts cause it's so blurry and just imagine how crappy the PS3 version may look as multiplats usually are better on Xbox360.

.....and just think the PC version is not even running on MAX graphics so it will only get better and then a High texture mod will come out and COMPLETELY destroy Ultra settings.

Consolers don't care about graphics.........Cool Story Bro cause if that was true then Xbox and PS2 would still be the consoles of Today!

This comparison is just further proof that New consoles are LONG over due for updated GRAPHICS, Better A.I., and MMO capabilities!

so Yes it's more than Graphics cause console A.I. sucks and consoles need to be able to handle MMO's next Gen.

Also you consolers NEED games driven by Gamers like Eve Online, DayZ, Wasteland, etc. and current consoles can't handle this.

Orpheus2092d ago

I think the single player will look even better :-)

ThatGuy22092d ago

Hell yeah,crysis has made a come back for pc players.Thank god its not a port like last one

charted2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

Are people that thick in their head, that a 7 year old console is being compared to a updated pc?

If compared to a 7 year old pc hardware, then it would've broken down.

A more sensible comparison is console vs console.

Why does BF3 look great on a PC then on a console? Because people update their pc whereas console don't.

Some comparison are just retarded.

AngelicIceDiamond2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

Yeah it is a blur fest but what u expect its PC VS console. PC wins

It'll be interesting comparing next gen games to current PC though.

There's no real graphical difference just blurry on the 360 like looking through a semi foggy lense or something.

Tsar4ever012092d ago

why no show on PS3 comparison? I tell you why. It looks even worst than what were seeing on the 360.

2092d ago
indubitably2092d ago

I would be willing to bet it had at least a little to do with the capture technology used. Still entirely possible the blur is just to make up for a really low resolution possibly.

Baylex2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

LOL that was funny ahah xD

But anyways, about the pc and the console... I bought my laptop over 2 years ago and still plays most of the games in high settings.. like Borderlands 2, DmC, Batman Arkham City, even Far Cry 3 I can play it with normal and some high settings with no problem.
And when I bought my laptop it wasn't a big laptop it was an avarage laptop.. and after 2 years is still running strong!! You don't need to have a FU*KING power rig to run most of the games... just a medium pc will max out like 80% of the games ;) that's why I din't by another xbox 360

mcstorm2092d ago

@chukamachine I agree and looking at the pics I don't believe the graphics will look like this on the 360. If you look at the pictures in detail the full 360 picture is blurred out where you would expect the distance to be but not the gun and health items.

I don't expect the 360 version to look as good as the pc but I don't think the 360 version of the game will look like this web site has made it out to be.

1nsomniac2092d ago

What do you expect on a console that's coming up to be a decade old it's done amazingly well. Definitely on its last legs though.

The disapointing point out of this comparison is how little the PC has moved on :(

Still getting it on 360 , not becoming a jerk again or a self-centred tool on PC again such a sad thing to be .

raytraceme2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

Getting it on pc. No annoying kids, dedicated servers, and next-gen graphics. What's self centered about playing on a pc??? Cost me $200 to get a great gpu to add to my pc. You don't need a lot of money to game on a pc ;)

RuleofOne343 2093d ago (Edited 2093d ago )

Just tired of putting out cash so I can yap up my Rig & about how my system can do this & that. It's an endless cycle of my dad can beat up your dad mentality that got old for me.
so I just give it up & went to consoles where I just buy & go about my gaming time no concern or added expense.

@RuperttheBear when I gamed on PC .

SlyFoxC2092d ago

$200.....thats really not that good of a GPU... just saying..

Sarcasm2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

^$200 is a great gpu. Not everybody can afford $500 or $800+ monsters.

Although I admit I have a GTX 680 but got it for $400 last year. I don't ever see myself paying above that for any GPU ever. The last one I did was a GTX 580 for around $550 when it was first launched only for a couple years later for it to be worth $250.

So yeah, $200 for something like a GTX 660 or Radeon 7850 is Grrrrrrrrrrrrreat!

kevnb2093d ago

because gaming on pc turns you into an asshole...

pr0digyZA2092d ago

Well apparently it does, it warps your mind and makes you become something else entirely, it's like you have no control over your own personality/s

Hes obviously just trolling, trying to make himself feel better.

RuperttheBear2093d ago

'not becoming a jerk again'

When did you stop being one?

sourav932093d ago

You've never owned a gaming PC. If you did, you wouldn't have said those words.

FlameBaitGod2092d ago

He just mad he doesn't have one.

Eldyraen2092d ago

@SlyFoxC: $200 can get you a respectable graphics card these days that stomps today's consoles and more than likely are on par or possibly better than next gen--especially if you pick them up when on sale. You don't "need" to spend the $500+ that some of us do.

It just depends on how much you're willing to spend and at what settings you want to play at. When it comes to PC its all about choices. I've known people that bought "weaker" cards that still max out most games just to play at lower resolution (especially useful if hooked to tv as not as close as a monitor anyways so difference isn't as pronounced).

Still, probably not near as strong as a high end card (unless used and good deal), but its all objective when it comes to PCs and their users anyways. It could still have been a great upgrade on what they had been using ;)

Qrphe2092d ago

So you'll get it on the 360 to avoid becoming a PC master race jerk?

If not you should've worked your sentence better pal.

Obviously the console versions don't look at good as the PC but those X360 shots are wrong.

Look at these pics attached which was taken from the 360 beta today.

raytraceme2093d ago

xbox shots are correct. The webite is showing a True PC-Xbox comparson. They are showing the difference that you would see on a 1080p hdtv. The blurriness, lack of detail, etc... is how different the xbox version would look compared to the pc version on the same screen.

AAWELLS092093d ago

Completely agree and i knew that without looking at the screenshots you provided. I play on PC only and i know that the console versions will not look that bad.

ThatGuy22092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

at 1080p they will....those screens where in 1080p

landog2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )


ok now streach those images you posted to fill your 32" to 50" screen that you play your console games on and that is EXACTLY how bad it will look on console

your looking at the screen minimized i bet which is compressing the shit out of it and it will never look that crisp on an actual tv while playing

and even while compressed in the images you posted, you can see how very low res the trees, the brush, the cement, all looking like last gen, ancient, 8 year old textures becasue that is exactly what they are, everything on console looks 8 years old to me.

now imagine that screen you posted with 10x higher textures, lighting, shadows, anti aliasing and resolution and thats what it will look like on pc

Ve3tro2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

I know how low res the console versions are since I've taken my own pics in the X360's 1080p setting with my own hardware and yes they are blurry but this site has made them look even worse.

They look more blured and the contrast looks weak as shit. It's like they've purposely chosen the worse settings for X360 in regards to Reference Levels, HDMI Colorspace and thats if they even used HDMI.

Going by the pictures it looks more like Component was used and well Component isn't the best quality picture in todays world when you can use HDMI.

Qrphe2092d ago (Edited 2092d ago )

1080p is so 2007. Why not play at the glorious 2560x1600 resolution?????

Edit: lol at all those saying that graphics are "reaching bottlenecks" and graphics won't improve in general.

steve30x2092d ago

Because a monitor that does that resolution is very expensive. I want a monitor that is 2560 x 1440 but the cheapest one is over 600 euro.
