VideoGamer.com has put together a video comparing the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of EA DICE's Battlefield: Bad Company.
The contract seemed higher on the 360 but that's prob just down to some settings. Good port. Love the way the physics work on both.. Especially the tree splitting..
yeah tree split looks good. looks impressive on both, dunno whats going on with ps3 version though, summit dont look right with colour. probably just way its filmed / tv is configured. what does it matter? pick up the game for whatever console you have.
Ill get the PS3 version cause the best part of BF games is online. And PSN is free (and thats an advantage for ME, i dont want to start a fanboi war)
I didn't think there would be any doubt about your statement..
Dowloaded both demos and compared side by side and the 360 version is better. Heres what I found if you plan on buying this game. 1. All the textures are identical, but the PS3 version has no normal mapping on all textures example ( http://www.driverheaven.net... 2. When I shot down a tree the reaming stump on 360 version had shredded pieces of wood, PS3 version has the texture but the alpha was missing (need to see for you self). 3. Missing props, on top of the hill where all the smoke and fire is, the fire on the PS3 version is comming right out of the ground, 360 has something there I'm not really sure what its is but the fire is not comming right out of the ground. 4. EA is a POS publisher and developer and things listed above are not limitation of PS3 just lazy porting.
where are the articles about how broken the connections issues are? When is Dice and EA going to get on it? It will work flawless for a few hours and then BLAM you get booted from the game and can't connect for hours. It works. Then it doesn't. Then you can connect, get booted (after a few minutes), connect, get booted, connects, get booted, runs fine four hours, rinse and repeat. WTF! I want to play this game online! The odd thing is it seems to happen more during the day. You would think the problem would be worse at night when everyone is off work.
I really, really wish they would do video comparaison like those, but saying A and B (for about 2 days) instead of 360 and PS3. Instead of seeing fanboish comment like: Version A look WAY MUCH BETTER or Version B as way more leaves in the 4th tree on the left, we would finally get comments like: Wow, both version look almost identical. No fanboy would take a chance to pick one version over the other. Then, 2 days later, those guys could say which console was A and which console was B. Only a fanboy, looking at this video, would say one version is WAY MUCH BETTER than the other. Personally, I don't care if one tree has more leaves or not, or if one explosion has to more sparks. While playing, I don't have the time to count leaves. Both game look very, very good. Keep bringing them on. P.S.: There's one more peeble on the ground, around 1 minute 37 seconds and 12 hundred of a second, but you have to freeze frame to see it. ENJOY! Me, I'll be playing the game!
Both versions look like sh!t compared to MGS4.
If you can't see that the 360 version is superior in more ways than one you're lieing to yourself. Even some of the effects and objects are missing in the PS3 version.
how this gamer site when doing video comparing they always seen to turn off the PS3 RGB FULL RANGE(HDMI). i have both the PS3 and the 360, just got a 360 to play lost odyssey lol and have play both demo. believe you me both game looks and play the same, only different is my ps3 has RGB FULL RANGE so both looks the same. @power of green: every game is going to look better for you on the 360 bro, let face it you a 360 fanboy. i read almost all you comments here on N4G and all you ever talk about is how the 360 better, how the 360 more power, how the 360 this and that, etc...its hard to imagine you every saying anything good about the PS3 ever. after being here on N4G so long and reading you comments they have become boring and repetitive to the point that they sound like advertisements for the 360, just how much is Microsoft paying for?
Also, super white is not turned on......
This website seems to be full of fearfull sony loyals that are always logged in and ready to make the first "spin" posts in every news piece that makes the PS3 look bad but the thruth is that: THE XBOX 360 VERSION LOOKS BETTER THAN THE PS3 VERSION.
Let's not exaggerate, they look almost exactly the same, however, i do have to say, that the 360 version does look a little bit better overall, but we are talking just slightly better. The main thing that the 360 version has over the PS3 version is less screen tearing than the PS3 version and better textures (especially the ground textures), otherwise they look basically the same. And why do all PS3 games always look so washed out on these comparison videos? the same is not true in real life on your tv.
I still dont understand why we are doing frame by frame comparisons of ps3 and 360 versions of games to look at minimal brightness and contrast settings and then claim that one is better than the other due to a slight increase. Dont you all think its kind of sad ? They are the same game regardless of what platform its on, and any increase/decrease in brightness shouldnt be a reason not to buy it, and if it is your a joke. Just buy the game and enjoy it. All these videos do is attract viewers to their site and get alot of gamers arguing over "which platform is better"
I own both consoles. The 360 always has better colors and rougher edges. The PS3 has smoother edges and washed out colors. I prefer the 360 version. Also the 360 tends to have better textures.
Xbox is superior in softlocks and hardlocks.
except that thay havent changed the colour and contrast on the ps3 version.
I wonder if they even attempt at configuring the TV.... T_T
if they didn't configure the TV, that means they didn't configure it for the 360 either, so now what is your excuse? Games look better on 360, why is that so hard to beleive, why do people literally make excuses for an inferior product? If graphics are so important to you, then just buy as 360. PS3 exclusives still look great, so whats the big deal?
GT has a comparison of the game and its the exact opposite of whats shown here...check it out http://www.gametrailers.com... i wonder which comparison is true?
But you're right that the PS3 version looks much better than it does in the demo on this site. It does seem with adjustments to the TV the PS3 can look as good, but if you have to make adjustments for each game or for gaming and then for when you go back to TV, that's a pain.
No need to get so worked up hahaha. @2.2 Well thats what my comment was based on. @2.1 Why are you getting so defensive? Its not like im eating your children. I merely asked a question in form of a question, take it as rhetoric if you must.
Is it a matter of adjusting your TV every time you switch games? Or just a matter of taking 10 seconds to turn full RGB on and be done with it, forever?
oops in form of a comment, that is.
i going to get the 360 version. just looks better IMO
haha I guess 21 people don't believe you have an opinion.
No dumbass, 21 people disagree with his opinion... what's wrong about that? -.-
GianyEnemyCrab is apparently not familiar with the definition and appropriate usage of the term "disagree".
I got the xbox 360 version yesterday after playing the demo on both and seeing it was far superior. The xbox 360 version has way more particles and debris and the textures are more detailed. It's just, once again, the better version. It's normal for the xbox 360 to have the best version cause it isn't a port. Bank on xbox 360 multiplatform games, guys.
Siligon That's just the devs incapable of making the game on a superior complex hardware.
PC? Right ;)?
Silogon, whne did you become a raging fanboy? Nevermind. Dead Space is leading on PS3, lets see how that turns out.
First of all do you really think the developers would spend all that time and money making new, lower res textures for the ps3 version? They use the exact same textures. Besides, texture resolution isn't even that important for making a surface look good. What's important is the shader programs that go on the surface. Without shaders there would be no normal maps, specular maps, parallax maps, reflections, or refractions etc. Without shaders he surface would be just like looking at a flat, fuzzy, low res bitmap image. And the developers would not spend time writing new, less expensive shaders for the ps3 version. The shader program is just recompiled to run on the two GPUs. Since they are two different architectures the pixel comes out slightly different on each. Even if you ran Crysis on two PCs that are identical other than one has a Radeon HD4870 and the other has Geforce GTX280, even with all the same settings, the two screens would look slightly different. The GPUs simply have different ALUs for pixel processing and different algorithms for anti aliasing and so on. Secondly, the games use the exact same physics code. And particle physics processing scales extremely on virtually every type of processor from the 360's Xenon to ps3's Cell and even graphics processors. My point is that no developer would have any problems getting physics to run on the SPUs, in fact they are extremely well suited for it and it is one of their strong points. The fact is that you are an outright fanboy. Actually more like a fanbaby. Scratch that you are most like a fanweed. That's it fanweed. FANWEED As part of your fanweed ability set you have this strange ability to hallucinate better graphics on your favorite console. Man I wish I could do that.
Both games are the same just get over it, now it just comes to online. Free or a paid service because it seems now developers are better with the PlayStation 3 hardware. I'm with the free service so I can save that $49.99 on game add-ons.
I have to agree with you. I have played the demo on both consoles as well. At the same time actually. The PS3 version has much more jaggies and less vibrant colors than the 360 version. It also had less particle effects(visible in the explosions in the video).
Agreed in the video 1:20 in look at the ground when the video pans through each version despite the PS3 version looking like it has a layer of jelly the textures are rubbish the 360 versions ground looks 3D and is far more detailed.
Siligon's like Mart's clone or something. Like at the end of Mgs4 at the cemetery... oh my bad, 360 doesn't have MGS4. And you have a "PS3" too right? Well I got an Xbox720, not hard to lie over the internet is it.
PoG, to notice something like that, you must have been looking for it, and that is beyond sad, my little friend.
I also noticed the superior console's softlocks and hardlocks consistent rate.
The 360 version has better colours & possibly specular lighting highlights on the artillery.
they both look good, look at this http://www.gametrailers.com...
Another game of spot the difference for the mentally challenged, that game is great on BOTH consoles, the rest is just semantics.
I hate it when u are on ground and u grab out a rocket launcher and shoot the tank 2 r 3 times and it still doesnt blow it up. I mean what good is all this destructable invironments and then u cant even blow the damn tank up with a missle launcher. Also they need to do the same for the grenade launcher. Only way I found it easy to kill the tanks when on foot was when u were a sniper, using the above view rockets being dropped on the tank, usually takes them out if u get a direct hit. Edit: Other then that the game feels like call of duty 4, but I think this one is a bit better because of the tanks and vehicles and big area and the weapons are pretty cool, but thats just my opinion.
As for RPG's vs Tanks. I know they purposely made the tanks tough against RPG's so it will take a good 2 or 3 hits to kill one but that was to keep the demolition class from being too powerful. Also, all the tanks...especially the light tanks have vulnerable spots where the armor is lighter (see backside of light tank) and should allow for 2 hit kills.
There are two guy's in the tank, one jumping out to repair the other shooting. Get out of there, he will probably kill you.... PS:I am the one shooting;-)
What do destructable ENVIRONMENTS (at least get the first letter right, please.) have to do with tanks? Tanks take 2-3 hits to destroy so the game is more balanced. How would you benefit tactically from driving a tank and only being able to shoot off a couple rounds before being taken out by a single rocket (which are much easier to get than tanks)?
In a real war a missile launcher is more then enough to take out a tank. Atleast make it 2 shots and the tank is dead. Because it just seems unfair when u hit a direct hit on the tank and then while u are reloading the tank turns around and kills u. That doesnt seem fun at all, especially if u are trying to catch a base and they have tanks gaurding the areas. I think everything else in this game is awesome but they need to change the missile launcher to 2 shots and the tank is dead. I just got off playing it again online and shot the tank 3 times direct hit and didnt kill it. I am the one who got killed for blowing my cover. They need to fix that.
I think on the PS3-version the RGB Full Color mode is turned off.
why do you have to set up the PS3, does it not have the best setting out of the box? you shouldn't really have to play around with settings... lets say if you are a total dim-wit and want to play best settings, then you have a problem......... any way, the game looks great on both... beside's from color 'adjustments' on the ps3 no real big difference; such as framerates.
Because Some TVs (the majority of owners) don't support the best features, and having them on will make it look worse.
"lets say if you are a total dim-wit and want to play best settings, then you have a problem........." Well now that you know about full RGB I can't see it being a problem for you.
thanks for the tad bit of info....
Not sure how they have their ps3 setup but mine doesn't look like that.
repressed anger much?
no bubbles for you
You get bubbles for a MASSIVE DISPLAY OF ANGER! HULK SMASH!!!! But seriously, I have a great therapist who you should talk to.
"This section is heavily moderated by the N4G staff, so leave your fanboyism at the door please. Using words such as Xbots and Sony droids, or other words from the console war vocabulary, is strictly prohibited in this Zone." I'll see your baseball bat and raise you a 9mm.
No the bat isn't for me, I wanted to make it as fair as possible. Without making it a sissy fight with guns and shlt. Any moron can fire a gun, real men fight hand to hand. BTW I wasn't posting a reply to anyone but the hidden Ninja's from the Disagree clan. I call them Ninja because they are some how in my house watching me play games without me noticing them.
I don't know if its just a case of the TV settings needing adjustment for ps3 version but in this vid 360 version definitely looks a bit better. Cool this game looks pretty good, gameplay with destructible environments is interesting, some humor too, I might just check it out. JOY
Why do people care? I've played this game on both consoles and it sucks really, really badly. Terrible game.
Obviously, you haven't played it.
I don't know why in all of these 'comparison' videos the PS3 versions color palette always looks so dull. On top of that, I'm not impressed with the game as a whole on either system. Very disappointing for me :(
Yeah, we already saw it with Assassin's Creed and GTA IV comparison videos, there was always a bit less color on PS3, and once you buy it, there is strictly no difference between both versions.
this vid has a good representation of both http://www.gametrailers.com...
Mhmmm looks brighter and more Colorful on 360 but the Ps3 the Graphics look more Sharp and Clear
EXACTLY. Basically, the graphics are the same, just the classic washed effect in the PS3. if you can deal with it, what is the problema?
As some have said, I don't know what they did to their tv, but my PS3 version looks nothing like that. In fact, it has the deep colors and contrast that the 360 version has. At least going by the demo on LIVE. But I take these "comparison" videos with an eye of skepticism
......what is for sure though is that this game is a blast online, its sooooo much fun. Love it.
If you are a 360 fanboy then the game will clearly look better and more rich on the 360 If you are a PS3 fanboy then this game will be a sharper and better looking on the PS3. If you are a gamer the game looks great on either and it really just comes down to which console you will prefer to play it on. Edit: I love that I got 2 disagree's when my comments are spot on. both versions do look good. Sure there are differences but honestly they are not enough on either system that someone who buys the game on theirs is going to be upset because of them. The game is good on either and only the true fanboys are going to come on here and start barkin about how their version looks vastly superior and thus makes their system of choice justified and makes the other system a bad choice. This stuff just cracks me up. Just enjoy a good game people.
