is taking forever to load.

OMG just watched the vid, and crap that looked sick. When he blew that car up that was chasing him i yelled WOAH. Oh and both versions absolutley the same.

InMyOpinion5841d ago

Both versions look great and that's what matters. The physics look awesome.

ps3 looks like there's more stuff going on, on-screen... paper flying, boards collapsing, boxes tumbling, explosions are bigger, tires flying.... all i seen going on in the 360 clips is tires being moved around and ok explosions that don't look good as ps3's... also ps3 black/shadow colors look better

and i might add.. ps3 explosions looks like it last longer than 360 explosions.. you can see 360 explosions just fades away quickly

Relcom5841d ago

Watching that guy who was on fire was just perfect. I don't see to many people on fire but i'm sure thats what it would look like.

pharmd5841d ago

i think it looks great regardless of console..... another great FPS on the way :D

poopface15841d ago

Mine is better, no Mine is better. Grow up. This game isnt even close to released yet and we already got comparisons.

dan-boy5840d ago

the game engine for far-cry2 is pretty damn good, and if behind killzones, it's only by a whisker....good job ubi, let's hope it plays well on-line though.

that looks great great on both consoles! just reading some of the comments on here...laughable!

perhaps people see things differently?! coz both versions looked identical!

ZeroBlitz5840d ago

Very lame fanboyism. I prefer the PS3 and that's the only console I have, but what's wrong with you?

Other than that, the physics and graphics look amazing. Looks like it'll be a great game as long as they can keep the long walks from being boring.

madestar5840d ago

why the disagrees???? i only spoke the truth

it was pretty much the exact same post I was going to make, if they didn't want us to compare they wouldn't show them together. Like you Im not here to blow sunshine up the beehind of certain console owners just cause they get butthurt over the truth.

dan-boy5840d ago (Edited 5840d ago )

i didn't actually get a stop-watch out and time the explosions, but i couldn't really see much difference. could the ps3's last a bit longer because the frame rate did seem to stutter, and it was definately not running as smooth as the 360 version!

i dont know? in all honsety, they look identical graphically! even if the "explosions" are slightly longer, or there was a few more "sheets of paper" in air(we didn't see that bit in the 360 version so how could you tell there was more paper in the ps3 version?????), it's an achievement on both consoles!

i cant see why fanboys need this little victories.

@Dan-boy

Gotta disagree man. Yeah farcry2 looks good. Really f***ing good, particlarly for a multiplat, but it aint kz2. I cant put my finger on it but theres just something about fc2 that isnt up to it. Pretty though.

Yep ... here we go again... more comparisons.

Well i guess i have you say this... THE PC VERSION WILL BE THE BEST, AND IT'S THAT ONE I AM GETTING.

At least it will be in FULL HD (oops i was not going to say that... it just come out :) )

dexterwang5840d ago

Agree with above... FPS on PC FTW!

Statix5840d ago

More like, "don't have to spend a fortune on videocard and multi-core CPU" to run the same game, ftw ;)

Bolts5840d ago

Since when is a $1200-1500 PC a fortune? Oh and you can download mods for the PC version instead of getting ripped off for DLC. Basically the PC end all the pointless fanboyish about which version is the best. In the rare case when the PC version isn't better today, it will be better in a few months from now. It always, always win.

Statix5840d ago (Edited 5840d ago )

It may not be a fortune per se, but compare it to spending $200-400 right now, and play this and other great games like MGS4, RE5, Resistance 2, Killzone 2, GTAIV and GoW2 (when they come out, not 10+ months later), and so on. The more economical choice seems pretty clear to me.

fermcr5840d ago (Edited 5840d ago )

If you do not have money to buy a $1200-1500 PC ... you can buy a $500 PC ... you can play games in the same resolution that are on consoles. And PC games are cheaper.

@Statix "MGS4, RE5, Resistance 2, Killzone 2, GTAIV and GoW2"

Out of those games, i would only like 3 games from the list
Killzone 2, GTAIV and GoW2 (GTAIV and GoW2 sooner or later are coming to PC). Other games that i would like on the PC are LBP, Uncharted and the god of wars series... the rest, you can keep it.

As for the other way around, i bet you would also like some PC exclusive going to consoles. It go's both ways. The PC has more then enough games that are exclusive, wished by the consoles fanboys.

Statix5839d ago

It's unfortunate that you don't care for games such as RE5 and MGS4, (both of which will both probably get 10/10's out the yin-yang), but most gamers do. It's your loss. On the other hand, I honestly don't care about anything that's available for PC. I couldn't think of one game if you put a gun to my head.

SUP3R5841d ago (Edited 5841d ago )

The 360 version looks really crisp and bright while the PS3 version looks "warm" which I guess translates to a more natural look?
I'm going to leave this one up to performance since both are on par graphically IMO.
Might I also add that the physics engine is freakin amazing!

mistertwoturbo5841d ago

Same thing was said about GTA IV.

Perhaps Far Cry 2 on the PS3 might be running in a lower resolution.

I'm just theorizing. Disagree all you want folks.

Fishy Fingers5841d ago

Compare them when they're on the store shelf. Still early days.
