Eurogamer: Xbox 360 vs PS3 Face-Off: Round 14

Eurogamer writes: "No introduction is necessary for our latest console comparison feature; you all know the deal by now. Top notch 24-bit RGB screenshots? Check. HD-derived streaming video with crystal clear h.264 quality? Check. Flame-retardant clothing capable of withstanding the Human Torch's nova-blast? Double-check.

Just a couple of notes before the rows and bitter recriminations commence. Beginning with this latest feature, we're now embedding larger videos. There are also extended versions with even higher resolution available as clickthroughs via Eurogamer TV. Make sure you hit the 'high quality' button to get the full benefits of h2.64 encoding. If the cropped, slow motion videos are not good enough for you, full 720p 60FPS downloads optimised for playback on both 360 and PS3 are available on the author's blog."

wow. idiots.

i played Mercenaries 2 on both systems and i can tell you the ps3 version looks way better and has much better textures and less aliasing than the 360 version.

i don't trust anyone but myself...

lolol. Mercs 2 better on the 360 .. lolol

RoidRage5476d ago (Edited 5476d ago )

People need to just accept that the 360 is capable of slightly better graphics.

I see ps3 fanboys every were using the "well lets compare exclusives". Pretty convient that a 360 version of these ps3 exclusives will not ever exist, don't you think? I wonder what excuse ps3 fanboys would pull out of their ass if a 360 version of these ps3 exclusives were made. How the hell are you supposed to accurately compare two games running on two different engines, using different development techniques, with completely different game assets? You can't, and any normal person knows this.

What we have seen time and time again, is the ps3 being edged out on games that are comparable. Even the last years 360 version of Bioshock is visually superior to this years ps3's version according to Sony's own official ps3 publication PSM3. The question is how many more times is the 360 going to have to kick the ps3's ass before people are going to accept that the ps3 hype train that they have been riding is just that, hype.

Any PS3 fanboy to post videos of PS3 exclusives that look better than the 360 videos below.



juuken5476d ago

Blip...this is a video that's what...two years old?

Any PS3 game (MGS4, Uncharted, Heavenly Sword, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue) would make this game look bland right now.

Blip Blip5476d ago (Edited 5476d ago )

Post some vids of these "uber" PS3 exclusives if you are so sure of their quality.

How does a game being 2 years old make it's graphics less impressive? If anything it makes the PS3 look worse, because a 2 year old 360 multi-plat looks better than anything in the PS3's library, including the PS3 version of the same game.

Go to GameTrailers > Search Killzone 2 > Pick a video.

Done :)

Jamie Foxx5476d ago (Edited 5476d ago )

poor games but if fanboys want to gloat over those games,your really reaching

If you do need to pointlesly thump your chest like you got something to prove its the console EXCLUSIVES where it needs to be done...LBP,gears of war,resistance2,killzone,mgs4 then thump your chest but please...kungfu panda,mercenaries2,facebreaker ,hulk etc....... LMFAO+2

ericnellie5476d ago

Are we still having these discussions? LOL!
Actually, I sort of like them!

Lumbo5476d ago

easy, Blib:


but of course you in your fanboy deluded world won't accept it that this game looks about 10 times as good as the overly steril SC and the animations blow SC directly to old gen suffering. The stiff robot like animation sequences simply can not compare to procedural animation blending.

Bnet3435476d ago

I just want to go on a record and say that owning both a PS3 and an Xbox 360 is the best thing ever. If everyone owned both, I don't think there would be no fanboys. You don't miss out on anything I tell you, ANYTHING!

thewhoopimen5476d ago (Edited 5476d ago )

The gametrailers HD comparison of Mercs2 showed better textures on the ps3 as well as slightly more framerate hitch on the 360. Is it me or does Richard have an increasingly obvious platform bias?

"How the hell are you supposed to accurately compare two systems running on two different architectures, using different development techniques, with completely different strengths? You can't, and any normal person knows this."


Xelai5476d ago

The comparison is valid, not losing the focus of comparing multiplatform games and not exclusives.

Multiplatform development is easier on the 360 and usually gets better results, if you want really good results on the PS3 get ready for being an exclusive, have a long development time, have a massive team, and have loads of cash, if not your results will be lackluster, with resources,obviously, the PS3 shines.

But this is multiplatform development, optimised for getting the best results with adjusted budgets, teams and resources, and in that aspect it is a fair comparison.

Blip Blip5476d ago (Edited 5476d ago )

You just proved two things.
1 -360 games look better than PS3 games
2 -PS3 fanboys are liars

KiddyBrownTurd5476d ago

lmfao. POOOOOOOOR DROIDS still think MGS4 looks or plays better than SC4 LMFAO!!!! HAhahaHAHAHAa

and don't even get me started on Gears LMFAO!

pooooooooor delusional droids :(

RoidRage5475d ago

You don't have to be fanboy to see that the game you posted is in no way better graphically than what Blip Blip posted. It would take a fanboy to say that it is. I f**king horse laughed when I watched your video after watching Blip Blip's.

Man_of_the_year5475d ago

Oh please dont tell me the link he provided leads to uncharted...if it is i will never understand why PS3 fanboys always bull the uncharted card...it wasnt even on the radar for any awards for graphics or any other category...if it was so good then tell me why not a single nomination was for the game graphically wise huh..i guess MS bought the whole judging panel right...

You PS fanboys are making me and other PS3 owners look bad every time you pull the uncharted has the best graphics on any console card...please stop embarrassing me and yourself.

dantesparda5475d ago

Just look at the MS-sh1t-talking-force go! And to the fanboys some comments down from me who think n4g is such a PS3 haven. Just look at how many disagrees the PS3 fanboys have in comparison to the 360 fanboy's comments. And also look at how many bubbles the 360 fanboys have vs the PS3 ones. You people are all fanboys and all your opinions are biased, PERIOD!

According to the Article, the Best versions are:

Soul Calibur: Xbox 360 Reason: Higher Res, Better Lightning.
Kung Fu Panda: Xbox 360 Reason: 60FPS versus 30FPS on PS3.
Mercenaries 2: Xbox 360 Reson: Depth Field and Superior Refresh Rate.
Guitar Hero Aerosmith: Xbox 360 Reason: Higher Res, Better Refresh Rate
Beijing: Xbox 360 - Reason: Many, i.e. Higher Rest, AA (absent of PS3)
Hulk: PS3 - Reason: Better image Overall due to post processing.
Face Breaker: Xbox 360 Reason: No many, just better AA (4XAA), subtle effects. Better upscaling
Madden, NHL and Tigerwoods: Tie


Xbox 360 6 - PS3 1
Tie 3

Winner Xbox 360

P.S. Loading times aren't considered since the Xbox 360 will soon be able to install ANY game.

Eurogamer=The site for 360 fans to chest thump over.
It's obvious that Eurogamer will do everything in their power to make PS3 multiplatform games look bad.

Blip Blip5476d ago

Yeah, my eyes are lieing. It's all just a big conspiracy against the PS3.

PimpHandStrong5476d ago

are your eyes seeing what i see? I have a 1080p TV with a PS3

is that what your eyes are seeing? Or are you talking about the video you get to see online that someone else had control over

juuken5476d ago (Edited 5476d ago )

They've been doing it for a while because I have an account there. They take a bunch of mediocre games (save Soul Caliber IV)and compare them against the PS3 version.

It has nothing to do with conspiracy. It's just something I've observed over there. And I wouldn't be surprised with the disagrees because apparently 360 fans love these types of unfair comparisons.

Man_of_the_year5476d ago

well i am watching it on my 46 inch samsung in 1080p on my PS3 and even i can say the 360 looks better...and sorry Juuken but i disagree that eurogamer is tampering with anything to make the games graphics look worse than the 360 - to me making that statement is just plain ignorance but if you feel that eurogamer is the site for 360 fanboys than i guess N4G is the counter balance for Sony Fanboys - the universe once again balances itself out

power of Green 5476d ago (Edited 5476d ago )

I see all the pics on the Series 6.

360 pre-launch HD testing was done on Sammy's, the 360 hardware is talored to samsung LCD tech. The contrast ratio, color and the dynamic mode allows you to see everything. Samsung the official HDTV of the NFL and the Xbox 360(showing 360 on Samsung LCD sku's is not just about MSFT's and Samsung's marketing partnership).

"It strikes me as a real shame that the 720p downscale has been included at all in the 360 code, when that extra resolution could have been used for all manner of better things - for example, an improved image at 1080p, better picture quality on 1360x768 LCDs and plasmas or a cracking picture on the forthcoming 1440x900 mode coming to the next dash update. Instead, all that effort seems to have been pretty much wasted."

Xelai5476d ago

It is so tiresome when we have to constantly read about conspiracy theories against the PS3, all media is bought by Microsoft against poor Sony, that has no money and no power. That is incapable of pushing its own format or muscle its almost omnipresence into retailers worldwide, the Sony brand is in great peril!

One site is awesome one day when they bash Microsoft, and the next they are soldouts to the evil empire, Gameplayer AU anyone?

It is just incredible the amount of conpiranoia people believe, Mulder would be proud.

Eurogamer is one of the most respectable, professional and independent websites out there. Bashing them is not going to change the facts.

Nevertheless it must be sad to begin to hate almost all media believing there is a global conspiracy against Sony, in the end you got almost no sites to go and you become dependant of biased bloggers for your information, and obviously n4g, the ultimate haven for PS3 lovers.

PD Just go to Google, type n4g with no intro, wait a bit and see how the term "n4g ps3" is above even "n4g com", how can it be? :-)

Now lets the hate and disagrees roll.
