Gears of War. Resistance: Fall of Man. Two great next-gen shooters, but which one to buy? Here's the point-by-point breakdown.
GEARS FOR THE WIN!!! Lets start a list of games that run smoother and look better on the 360, if you don't believe my list go to the reviews on ign, then you will see the light. Call of Duty 3 Tony Hawk Project 8 Marvel Ultimate Alliance Need for Speed: Carbon So far the Ps3 is getting PWNED on exclusive and multiformat games. All more reasons not to buy a ps3.
YOU DO KNOW 360 CAME OUT 1S SO THE DEVELOPERS HAVE MOR TIME OF THE DEV KIT . PS3 CAME OUT LATE DEV. HAS LESS TIME TO DEVELOPE.
much the exact same time. So it doesn't matter since it's been equal time worked on both. So it's only an ok result from sony and to be honest I think IGN was being rather nice on ranking resistance. I mean play them both and you'll see there's only 1 true winner here. Gears of War !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is just plain silly... Devs have had final dev kits for X360 for almost 15 months now, while some devs have complained they haven't gotten final dev kits for PS3 before august this year. Secondly it has been reported for all of the games you've mentioned, that lead development has been on X360 (obviously because they didn't have final dev kits for PS3). Thirdly, don't start with the delay thing, since, as just mentioned, final dev kits weren't being shipped to the majority of developers before august this year.
The dev.s can, are, and have been working on titles LONG before dev. kits came out, they do this on a PC by using system specs and the game engine, It's easy and has been and is being done for a long time, how else do you think almost 2 years ago you saw MGS4 footage, of course which looks like crap today compared to the CGi they mostly showed back then. So no, your wrong, developers have been working on titles for same time frames basically, especially sony duh and the R-FOM title. Sorry, no excuses this time.
So are you saying that Resistance was developed with beta dev kits. Remember, sony pushed the release of the PS3 back at least twice. I'm thinking that the PS3 dev kits were probably out months before that. The only reason the dev kits were not called final kits is because the machine hadn't been released yet. I mean, it's not like much has changed as for as the hardware is concerned since the first promised release date of the PS3 which was spring of 06. All I'm saying is this, don't blame the dev kits, I'm thinking that gears and resistance were both being worked on long before the x360 was released.
both games is awsome 1ST GEN GAME OF PS3 GOING HEAD TO HEAD AGAINTS 360 2ND GEN GAME WOW RESISTANCE U THE MAN. GOW 2 YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT USES UNREAL ENGINE 3.0 RESISTANCE 1 YEAR OF DEVELPMENT BUILT ON PS3 HARDWARE WHICH ITS HARD TO DEVELOP CELL IS MONSTER
IBLOWPS3ALLTHEWAY, considering all of the delays and such, most of the PS3 games have been in development for the same time, making your 1st vs. 2nd gen argument a moot point. Yeah with Resistance's beefed up PS2 graphics LOL and Gears of Wars mindblowing visuals that set the bar for any game visually. Mass Effect will take the crown from gears. The graphics chipset in the 360 is superior, that is why there is such a tight NDA grip o the specs for the RSX, the cell processor is an AMAZING piece of technology, but not for real-time gaming. PS3 is nice, but if you want games and better looking games get the 360. Developers will develop for the 360 more, since it can easily be ported to the PC, they can use a large majority of the 360 code on a PC, especially next-gen gpu's. TECHNICALLY THE GPU IN THE 360 IS A GENERATION AHEAD OF THE PS3 GPU, GET OVER IT, NOTHING YOU SAY WILL CHANGE THAT. IT HAS DOUBLE THE POLY PERFORMANCE, TRIPLE THE VERTICES PERFORMANCE. 360 GAMERS HAVE NEXT GEN HARDWARE PS3 GAMERS HAVE NEXT GEN MOVIE PLAYER NUFF SAID
That's what I'm sayin! Since the PS3 was delayed from spring 06, that gave developers an extra 8 months to "polish" these games, since Sony said the only thing holding the PS3 back was the poo-ray diode, right? So this 1st gen PS3 vs 2nd gen 360 arguement has no truth.
will u shut the hell up. The first gen PS3 game is being compared to 2nd 360 game. What do u have to say to that. RFOM is getting just as good reviews as GOW. So please, shut up. Go play your GOW.
The reviews for RFOM (89%) are not as good as the reviews for GOW (95%), check it out. Actually here, I'll help you. ;) RFOM: http://www.gamerankings.com... http://www.metacritic.com/g... GOW: http://www.gamerankings.com... http://www.metacritic.com/g...
Insomaniac has been working on this title for a while. They are a premiere developer for Sony and are get special treatment from Sony. How long has Sony displayed RFOM? "But the relatively plain-Jane special effects and textures just don't match up with Xbox 360 shooters such as F.E.A.R. or Call of Duty 3, let alone Gears. " Even newer titles that have been in development in a shorter amount of time beats RFOM in graphics.
Sorry.. double post.
Where did you go? ;)
Welcom3 chang3, still dont know how a Duke-Nukem-like game even came close.
The recent post about consumers thinking the PS3 is under $300 shows the lack of information in the general population. Everyone tries to make the argument that "you can't compare two games because one is first gen and the other is second gen." Unfortunately, that is EXACTLY what most consumers walking into a store are going to do. They are going to look at GOW and look at Resistence and assume the 360 has better graphics. THe average consumer isn't going to say "but the 360 devs had more time with the final hardware." They are going to compare the games available and thats it. Period.
RFOM is old school rubbish with dude hopping on wind to get across empty levels while using goop guns that shoot bubbles. It keeps getting high score's because it reminds Sony fans of Ratchet and Clanks wacky BS. 40 players online that offers Unreal style chaos is wack. I agree nobodies going to give a sh*t about 1st vs 2nd gneration tittles. I think RFOM has to get the score's it did out of respect for Sony "sympathy points".
Gears kicks everything in the ass thats come out for the year of 2006. I mean look at these scores, brought to you by Gamespot. Xbox 360 Gears: 9.6 Xbox 360 COD3: 8.8 PS3 COD3: 8.2 PS3 RFOM: 8.6 So judging by this, your precise RFOM for your PS3's is not even better than COD3 or COD2. LMAO. Thats just hilarious. So in no way is it even close to Gears. Its not even close to COD3. Thats how sad PS3 and its games are. 8.6 for RFOM, seems to be its highest rated game right now. LOL
all the same just focus on your onw system not bashing . its all good 360 is just second rate trying hard pu55i c4t lollololololol even 360 wins this war maybe (not) so. P1 PS2 stil selling yah its stil selling over 200 million sold wow 360 5-6 million? lol sory long way to go . PLZ 360 fans just stf^ stop finding excuse the king is coming 1 day left you 360 fans agen wil bow to the king SONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!4 life . 1-800 4 MY XBOX
Jump IN! welcom3 to the futur3 of gaming, Play B3yond.
So you'd rather have sh!tty graphics and buy the most bought machine because 50% off them stopped working so people had to buy them twice or... You buy the machine that has Gears of War On top of that: COD3 with 60 fps compared to PS3 30 fps (and no, it's not out later, developed on the same timepath and even worse: like RR7 on PS3 a year after RR6 on 360, the 360 version looks better???) Rainbox Six with vison cam face mapping which the PS3 doesn't have? The 360 is just the new king. Be ready to have your beloved PS uncrowned
"The build we saw was the very first attempt to convert the game to PS3, since the team got the final development kit from Sony only a week before the event, which was held in Paris last month" http://ps3.gamespy.com/play... Date of this arcticle is Sep 20, 2006 So COD 3 was developed mainly for 360 and ported to ps3, starting in August 2006.
GO Resistance !!!
Shooting goop bubbles riding on wind, with PS2 graphics with less jaggies.
DON'T make me fukin laugh!!! thats not even an equation!!! gears of war would seriously kerb-stomp ALL OVER IT!!!! resistance is mearly a system filler title! i've seen the hd videos (streamed through my 360) and to tell you the truth, the ps3 is a joke!! it's just NOT delivering the 5x power of 360 talk. ridge racer looks like a coder with cerebal paulsy programmed it!!! DMC4........MEH afrika.......WTF only GREAT game will be vf5!!!
I would agree with you on vf5 but if a fighter doesn't support online then im going to just pass it up! As far as rfom vs gow is pretty much a wash because I know I will never play rfom so I can't judge it!
Who really cares what the best system is? Each are powerful in its own right. But for me it comes down to online play and media center functions. MS wins hands down on that.
What's with the excuses? Why are we compairing development time? Bottom line, right now, you pay $200 more to play games and you get less performance and lower quality. I'd be pissed.
Poop! Do-do Fecal matter Sh*t. LOL. #15 Sony's still lieing about the PS3 i seen Kaz H. and another Sony guy on Fox News durring my lunch Hour lieing about the PS3 being the only console to do 1080p and playing HD movies they worded it as the PS3 was only console instead of out of the box. ect..
If you guys keep using this excuse that 360 is on the 2nd gen and ps3 is on 1st gen, when will ps3 games be better? When 3rd gen 360 games come out, ps3 will be on 2nd gen, when 360 4th gen ps3 will be on the 3rd gen. And so on...
It's nice to see Sony humbly taking the #2 spot this generation. At least they're good sports about it. I wish them luck with the PS4.
The PS3 hasn't even been released in the U.S which is the Country with the Biggest Gaming Market, and yet you think the PS3 has already taken 2nd Place? You are one sad little MS fanboy.
If Sony pooches the punt with their much vaunted Blueray player (and from early indications, they have), and continue to offer good (but not spectacular games), I'd be wishing them luck with a strong 3rd place finish. Oh wait...there are only three consoles in this generation. Oops.
Didn't Sony push back the PS3 launch? Both Sony and Microsoft have been developing next-gen consoles for years. Microsoft finished their product first. Sony took a bit more time. Developers were working on computer emulators way before the systems were launched. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like both companies developed their consoles over the course of a few years and developers had about the same time, working with emulators. Furthermore, nobody said Resistance had to be available at launch! The developers could've polished up the game and released it next month or early next year. Developers can choose when to release games, if they want a superior product. That's why Gears wasn't a launch title, it wasn't polished to the amazing game it is now.
Uuuuuuuum, GOW takes around 10-12 hours to finish....I thought Resistance was supposed to have 20 gigs of storage....it was supposed to have atleast twice as much gameplay...isn't that what all the sony boys said??? Alot of sites are starting to say the AI is crappy...gametrailers has a good review on Resistance but the AI is supposed to stand around alot....just like all those videos we seen. I thought ps3 was supposed to have the best AI? And damn, I knew the graphics wasn't that great but a 3.25??? thats terrible..GOW got a fat 5!!!! Yet the sonyboys swear that Resistance looks much better than GOW... ...facts are coming in daily and 360 beats ps3 in every way. I try to have debates with people like dj but they refuse to mention the links that I do provide and keep talking about "Where is the proof???" Well the proof is all over this site....stop being in denial! You lost! I'm tired of hearing sonyboys just complain and whine..."not enough development time"... Can I see some proof??? Google it yourself!!! Its all over the place! Ps3 boys are just in denial....like the lil kid that knows his dog was run over by a truck, but still goes out at night calling for lil scruffy! ...
but I don't think I would call it a tie. I would give the nod to gears, base on what I've seen. although I can't deny I would like more multiplayer options with gears, 16 on some maps would be nice. maybe some slayer options a well.
...how good the 40 person online multiplayer really holds up to real world play. When the connectivity problems start pouring in...Sony fanboys will be crying foul! "I paid $600 for this crap!?"
At first ps3 gamers claimed that the ps3 was light years ahead of the 360 and that their launch games would be vastly superior to the 360's second gen games. And why wouldn't they think so with all the CGI sh!t that SONY was kicking around. Now that the ps3 doesn't deliever they pass the blame on to developers not having sufficient time to the develop the game versus the 360 counter part/game. This is simply bull sh!t. When xbox came out halo had graphics and crap that you simply did not see on ps2. Thats the way it should be. If a system comes out a year later then the thing should be some what superior in graphics. But according to all these reviews this is simply not the case. Not saying that the ps3 is crap or that it won't have bad azz games. Look at motor storm and MGS. Just keep it real and know(Jin) that ps3 and SONY are not the second coming cause we already know that the 360 isn't. Well maybe except for the Mart lol.
I pointed this out in another forum. I'm not saying that the PS3 is bad by any means, if I had the money and/or hadn't already got a 360 I would love to have one. It's just not reasonable to project the power of the PS3 as leaps and bounds beyond what Microsoft has produced. First-gen Xbox games were obviously more advanced than second, and even third-gen (can't remember the exact dates of release) PS2 games. Sony does have a more powerful system, but I think the differences between PS3 and 360 will be less apparent than those between PS2 and Xbox, probably just based on how far the technology has come and how close we are getting to CG-quality visuals. P.S. Gears has some of the most amazing rag doll physics I've ever seen. I still love how individual body parts have unique physics even after they've been blown off, and it's so much fun to kick a body around with such ease. What's most amazing is that the physics keep up online.
no contest. Gears Of War!!!!!
I do not understand why people keep trying to compare these two games. Obviously GOW is better because it offers superb graphics and excellent intuitive game play. Resistance is just a regular shooter-- however, it offers great graphics too. It just doesn't work, the 360 is a year older than the ps3. To compare games this early is ridiculous. When the ps3 is one year old then we can compare a similar tactical shooter to GOW. By the way...... I CAN'T WAIT TO STROLL INTO GAMESTOP MANANA AND GET MY PS3!!!
"VERDICT: Gears of War dominates this category handily, blowing away Resistance's PS2-on-steroids look. Resistance isn't ugly, but its visuals are disappointing for a PlayStation 3 game. In Gears of War, detailed environments, detailed characters, fluid animation, distinct atmospheres, sometimes moody lighting and some dramatic cutscene camera work practically set the bar for graphical presentation. " --> Resistance's PS2-on-steroids look And that's how all PS3 games seem to be. COD3 on 360 is better looking then on PS3 and has double the frame rate on 360 RR7 on PS3 a year after RR6 on 360, RR6 looks better on the 360... How can that be? All the grapnics we see from the PS3 seem blend, less colourfull, plastic kind of graphics, PS2 like... Are you guys sure they didn't put a beefed up PS2 inside the new case? Like a supercharged Gamecube is the Wii? @ Aass: The 360 isn't a year older. They were announced at the same time, the PS3 should have been here spring 2006 and I bet the development kits (not final hardware, but PC's that simulate the console) were out about at the same time. The 360 also got it's games made first on other hardware. No excuse. The 360 just beat the hell out of the PS3. I guess because the 360 GPU is just stronger then the PS3 one. That's why they keep the specs back. It's like the Wii were Nintendo didn't want to have the specs out being a supercharged Gamecube!
Yes we know you sleep with 360 Mart. Placing a sales pitch with every post is getting a bit old though.
Gears of War is the game of the year. Its not fair to compare any game to it. But, Rainbow six for the 360 is better than Resistance according to IGN. And we all know Rainbow six for the 360 is better than the ps3 version. Months ago sony fans were making outrageous claims about how ps3 game would be better than 360 games. Now, they are singing a different song. All we hear from sony fans now is excuses to why a 600 dollar console can't compare to a 400 dollar console. Every 3rd party game coming out in the same window is better on the xbox 360. I mean even Ridge Racer 6 which came out a year ago...Looks notibly better than the ps3's new Ridge Racer 7. WOW.... While sony fans keep making excuses to why games like Resistance don't compare to Gears of War or Rainbow six for the 360....I just laugh at how they make themselves look retracting from the claims they were making months ago. The funny thing is the 360 is the first game console to have 1080p as a native resolution and also the first to have 1080p games. I just bought Sonic yesterday and its native 1080p. And Splinter Cell is as well. WOW. Thanks Microsoft. P.S. Just stop it sony fans. You are looking desperate and sad with all your excuses to why the over priced sony console ain't keeping up with the 300 to 400 dollar xbox 360. And with stores RIGHT NOW offering a 100 dollar cash rebate on both the core and the premium 360 and Best buy and walmart offering a free game of your choice. WOW. Its over folks. Just get the games you want and enjoy the next gen of gaming. I have been for almost a year now and its fantastic. I get my ps3 tonight. 60 gig...but I'm not buying any games yet. None look good to me. I have 4 PC's and 6 xbox 360's...I have seen amazing games....Ps3 hasn't shown me anything amazing yet. But we will see.
If GoW is SO amazing i really wonder why people that actually bought it spend most of their time here to pollute the PS3 news. Are you already bored guys ?
gears of war is way better then rfoam now i havent played risistence but gears of war has better graphics,runs smoother,and u feel like your the locust or cog plus covering is realy cool and hardly ever lags plus no glitches.risistece looks like every other fps u just run around like idiots and fire your gun but in gears you have to cover or youll get pwned but my vote is. GEARS OF WAR PWNES RISISTENCE
I haven't read the article yet, i voted lame because why would they do this? This is a stupid comparison that should never of happened, its just trying to encourage a debate. And now on to the article... Actually, i agree with everything they have said, though i haven't played resistance. I have read resistances storyline, and it does sound awesome, Gears of Wars storyline sucked, but im going to disagree with bad dialogue, i cant repeat the lines that made me laugh on here, as i would lose bubbles.
You should have read it first, it was a fair comparison that highlighted each games good and bad points.
there are more reviews than you 360 fans are showing lets see what happen in a short time...
did u guys read? look, they're compering Resistence which is a lounch title to GOW"the next beast" don't say ps3 sucks just cause GOW is just a lil bit better than resistance. they didn't say GOW is way better than Resistence. the point is that there compering a lounch title to GOW, wich it has all the power of 360 and RESISTANCE doesn't have all the power of ps3, that's what i've heard. by the way, i think GOW is better and will be better than HALO 3 cause i know HALO 3 will be the same [email protected]#$.
Halo sucks! Plain FPS no innovation I really dont know what the hype is about. Love my GOW havent tried RFOM. Id buy a PS3 when the price drops for a bluray player alone . WHEN THE PRICE DROPS. 2008.
360 been out for a year and GOW is the first hit, and ps3 is not out yet (just in few hours) and it already have a hit. belive it or not this is the truth even though i think and i'm agree that GOW is a lil bit better that Resistance.
I'd say 30,000 copies on RFOm's launch day is a total hit. LOL
Strange you say Gears of War is the 360's first hit. Call of Duty 2 has recieved higher ratings across the board than Resistance and it came out at launch for the 360 buddy. And there have been 19 games for the 360 over the last year that have recieved the EDITORS CHOICE award from IGN buddy. There are several games out for the 360 that have rated higher than Resistance. Tell me again sony fanboys why 360 3rd party games across the board are better than the ps3 counterparts...I love hearing your excuses....And while your at it tell me why there have been games out for the 360 over the last year that have scored higher than Resistance which is SONY's flagship title that was suppose to show off what the ps3 can do. WOW.... timmyp53 - Whats your point saying that one place gave Resistance a 9.5? ha ha ha ha...You are aware that Gears of War got Perfect 10's by many many sites don't you. Resistance from what I saw at walmart don't compare to Call of Duty 3, Gears of War, Fear, GRAW or Rainbow six......It looks about the same as Call of Duty 2 from a year ago on the 360's launch...Honestly... And for those that say Call of Duty 3 got lower scores than Call of Duty 2. Well if you read the IGN mailbag you will see that they clearly say that Call of Duty 3 is better than Call of Duty 2...they just hold it to a new standard now that Gears of War is out. And also that there wasn't leaps over the previous Call of Duty 2....But clearly Call of Duty 3 is better. http://xbox360.ign.com/mail...
Call of Duty was the 360's first big game, but it was just as good (or better as some people claim) on the PC. Same with Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion. Better graphics and more customization on the PC version. There's been a few good titles, but Gears is the system's first killer-app. Sure, it took a year, but at least the system has one. Kinda cool that PS3 owners get to chance to play a killer-app on day one. They deserve to considering how long the wait has been.
The h3ll is this flame bait for news??
Has Gamepro really played RFOM multiplayer with 40 players online to make a meaningful assessment of its merits?
Being more of a sony guy, I agree with most of the xbox fans in here. Not going to pay 600 dollars right now when the lineup is absolute crap, sure, in the near future once the released games get better, then compare but for now, I'm enjoying my 360 and GOW because it is what it is, absolutely beautiful... as for RFOM... no so or even close, looks like a cheap first person shooter and chances are, I'd never play it. Not saying ps3 is bad by any means as we will, for sure get our socks knocked off but just not today, or this year.
They will do anything if not everything to keep another system in the game. How could they give sony a point for "story line", why not give them a point for the bullets hanging in mid-air. Give them a point for the less noise the drive makes, oh yeah and how about the finger prints on the PS3 when you touch it, the 360 can't do that. Yeah i'm sure the PS3 looks really good when everything is moveing on the screen,(I'll betcha it's not running in 1080p when everything is moving fast, but i'll bet it's in 1080p when you pause or play it back)
I'm sure you're right, but eventually, I'm sure it can do 1080p.
You know the funny thing is RFOM is a launch titles to be fair lets compare resistants to Perfect Dark they are both launch titles. I think it shows the strength of not only the PS3 but also insomniac that a launch game is being compared to the best second Gen game the X360 has. But as i said i bet if we looked at it more realistically and pit Perfect dark 0 with RFOM the Xbox360 camp would get a better graps of the scope of things to come.
You want to talk about less development time. I'm going to guess that launch titles for 360 had less development time than PS3 launch titles. Where PS3 kept delaying, 360 released. I've seen PS3 developers mention that they started in 2004.
I've seen 9.5's for both games, so I don't know why people are still arguing over this. They're not even in the same genre, let alone the same generation. 2nd-gen 360 vs. PS3 launch title.
you seem to have turned a corner DJ, well done.
Killzone 2 ... lol but seriously Resistance earlier on in the year didnt even look that good then it took a leap in graphics I think Gears should be compared to something else like a killzone if it ever comes out. I really need to get Gears now
I said it earlier: First gen Xbox games were significantly more impressive than 2nd/3rd gen PS2 games, not so when comparing PS3 and 360. Also, the main thing that held back the PS3 launch were blue ray lasers, the cell/rsx have been set for quite a while. Regardless of when studios got their dev kits, these games have been in development for a long time because they originally planned to launch close to a year ago and kept getting delayed.
first gen vs second gen!! thats crap an all you sony fans know it. you all know its just a lame excuse a copout, as to why your games dont look as good as x360 games! what you think that they worked on GOW for 2 years an RFOM for 6 months, well... by the looks of it!!all this talk about final dev kits coming in late! thats B.S as well. its not like they didnt have the system specs on a cpu that was the same or very very close to what the final system was gonna be like.its not like ya'll aint use to having the weaker system, its been that way for 2 generations why should it change now!!
The specs for the PS3 beta kits goes like this: 2.4GHz Cell nVidia 7800GTX PCI connections (2GB/s) between the CPU and GPU. 1GB of ram The specs for the final dev kits: 3.2GHz Cell processor Final RSX graphics chip 512 MB ram Flex I/O connection between CPU and GPU (16 times faster than in the beta kit). The big difference is the fact that Cell's speed was raised by 50%, developers finally got their hands on the RSX GPU, and the FlexI/O connection was put in. FlexI/O is VITAL because it allows the RSX to access XDR RAM at 15GB/s, or have data copied over to the RSX memory at 20GB/s. ----------------------------- - There was a huge difference between the beta and Final dev kits, and final dev kits were only released at E3 2006 and have been slowly trickling to needy development houses ever since. Devs have had over 15 months with final 360 hardware (in comparison). It's not a copout. It's just straight facts.
