The Japanese analyst Hatena has done the comparison between the 2 versions of Bioshock. See the screenshots to see how the 2 versions fare against each other.
hmm... was that other site lying?
oh wow. its obvious the 360 version looks better, I mean just look at the textures in the second pictures with the water. on the ps3 version the ground is blurry while the 360 version is clear. you must be an extreamly dedicated ps3 fanboy to not admit the truth.
i've played through the 360 version twice now, trust me it looks a ton better. but seriously......who cares? its a fantasticly terrific game, now you can get it on any platform you want, so get it on whatever platform you want. Its all goood. Smile and be happy =D
lol only fanboy geeks would even notice the difference. i dont really see much difference there.
yea these minor differences aint gunna take nothing from the game or the experience, just play the damn game and be happy, whos gunna buy both games for both systems and have two HIdeff tv's side by side the whole time wile they play? yall gunna do that? and criticize every little difference??? cmon : /
different rendering methods. the game was developed on 360, from what i see in THESE pics is that the ps3 version is lacking a little in sharpness, that's about it. http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... i like to see both versions in motion at 720p, before i can say anything more.

Everyone seems to be forgeting that the ground textures are what made this GOTY.
Ground textures did not make this GOTY. The great story and gameplay did. It isn't that the textures are bad on the PS3. It is that they used a filter to make up for aliasing issues in porting. They didn't build the game from the ground up again on the PS3, It is a rushed port. The game still looks great, just less shiny. It really is too good of a game to get caught up in graphic comparisons of a PORT.
whatever you say, bud. The fact that the 2007 game of the year took a year longer to end up on the PS3 and still looks considerably better on the X360 doesn't matter. Heck, 2K should have just pooped on a piece of tissue paper, called it Bioshock, put a PS3 label on it, and all would be good and wholesome in Sony nation. Sony defense force stay strong!!! TEH CELL HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
@ 1.8 How is this a rushed port? It was in development on the ps3 alongside the 360 from the start, but got shelved while the 360 version was being finished (some cash from MS probably helped there ;-) ). And remember the 360 version has been out for a long time now, so they've had lots of time to sort any issues out. I agree the different architectures don't lend to quick and easy porting of code, but come on, they've had loads of time and again the PS3 is showing how its not dev friendly. Its only kind to devs who use the PS3 as their lead platform or are exclusive to the PS3. Nuff said.
@ 1.9 Are you like f**king 5 year old? Eat your sweets and get a life.
I see washed out Ps2 quality textures and a comparable color pallet. That's what I see. Sony's system just isn't made to game on, guys. Face it. All the games you want should be played on more capable hardware. All there is to it. Ps3 is good at things like folding, blu-ray watching and listening to music while not in game. Basically other household items you have rolled into 1.
You are dead wrong there. what about exclusive games ?? or cod 4 or oblivion. You are judging from multiplat game(s). Why MSG4 is still the best or Uncharted graphic ?? PS3 is for gaming or not but it has best games graphically. Gameplay wise, its opinion of players. Those Screenshots are miles better on 360 though. edit : Not sure those screenshots are real th. 'coz both compared shots are same angle with right on spot, not even 1 mm difference. More like photoshop work.
Silogon, you are a joke "Sony's system just isn't made to game on". If the PS3 wasn't meant to game on then it wouldn't be getting other FPS games like Resistance 2 and Killzone 2 now would it? The PS3 wouldn't be getting Final Fantasy XIII, White Knight Chronicles, Heavy Rain, God of War 3, Infamous, or Uncharted 2 if the PS3 wasn't meant to game on now would it? The PS3 wouldn't be getting nearly the EXACT same multiplaform games that are on the 360 if it wasn't meant to game on now would it? Shut up Silogon. A 360 port to the PS3 that doesn't end up looking good has nothing to do with the PS3's hardware or the PS3's incapabilities. If anyone should be blamed, it's the developers themselves not the PS3's hardware.
my library begs to differ, but then stops begging because your not worth it.
no silogon, it's like trying to ride an elephant when you only learned how to ride a pony. Of course you will look worse on the elephant.
/FACEPALM will you STFU you ignoramus. Its not the Ps3, its the devs and their understanding of the hardware.
pays attention to this kids posts, he flops back and forth more than a comb over on a windy day.
I can't agree with your post about the PS3 not being made for gaming. I don't own a PS3, mainly because I got a 360 from launch and the games are fecking great plus the cost of a PS3 is still ridiculous. I'm sure I'll get a PS3 sometime down the line when prices come down (maybe they will) and then enjoy the large back catalogue of games for that system. I wouldn't get multiplatform simply because the 360 versions always seem to be better looking, and sometimes by a noticeable margin. One of my good friends has a PS3 and I've had a number of gaming sessions on the system and have been fairly impressed with what I've seen and played (but not with that strange feeling controller). However the posts after this have likened games such as MGS4 to be the best examples of graphics on PS3 and 360, well I don't think so my friend. Its very easy to say comments like this when wearing rose tinted glasses. My mate agreed with me that the game was way over-hyped in terms of graphical glory, gameplay great, but the visuals were good but certainly not stunning. And this was running on his fecking brand new state of the art Sammy tv! Uncharted was a very good showcase for the PS3 but come on, its not head and shoulders above 360 games. And as for PS3 owners blaming lazy devs, shut up! If Sony wanted their machine to be well recieved amongst the development community they shouldn't have made it so bloody difficult to work with. Saying devs are lazy is a damned insult to those hard working people. Its like a car company designing a car with square wheels and forcing people to find the best way to drive it and then calling them lazy when the public say f**k you and they go and buy a car with 'easy' round wheels. Finally for the PS3 owners who continually say the games that are coming out soon will show the true power of our system, you really need to question why you bothered to buy the PS3 in the first place. Did you get it out of pure blind loyalty to Sony? Most likely. Or did you buy it to enjoy games? Maybe. You can have a go at MS about buying up loads of games for the 360 and hence being ported to the PS3 all you like. Personally I'm glad they have done this because it's forcing Sony to get off their arse and step up to the plate again, like they did with PS1. The games coming out next year and the year after that will NOT continue to be massive leaps in graphical glory. The simple fact is that both the PS3 and 360 are memory limited. 512MB of RAM is nowhere near enough to produce games on par with PC's output. I'm a PC gamer at heart and I know you need lots of RAM to hold bigger and more detailed textures and then to preload many of them to keep a decent frame rate. In the memory stakes the PS3 is worse off than the 360 because of the splitting of the 512MB of RAM. But hey when it all comes down it, and I've completely went off my original point, the PS3 can game and it can game very well. Ports of 360 games will never show the PS3 in its true light. PS3 will only show its strengths with exclusive or lead platform titles but even then they are not head and shoulders above the 360. 360 games are really good looking, especially the Unreal 3 powered games (Gears etc) and PS3 owners having digs at EPIC saying their engine is sh*t because of its relatively poor showing on their system, really need to understand that devs will create middleware that requires minimal development time and cost to produce the best possible results on the majority of systems. What PS3 owners should be doing is questionning Sony as to why devs are finding it difficult to produce consistently good games on their system, even after 2 years or so!
PS3 Bioshock textures are non existent :O also it look kinda blurry .. that's about it
PS3 version looks better here:- http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... PS3 version sports better colour depth here but has some aliasing issues below :- http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... @EDIT why disagree? the screenshots are right up there for u with FULL RGB setting
IT LOOKS WOOOOORSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! SPINNNNNNNNN ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!
http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... sucks to be a BOT please note that BIOSHOCK has been ported to PS3 from x360 It runs on Unreal engine 3 which doesnt run well on PS3 too WASHED OUT BOX 360 thats the name . everything is washed ou also another take http://brutalgamer.com/2008... "Don’t get me wrong here, in my opinion the game looks better than the Xbox 360 version no doubt, and on par with the higher end PC visuals, but for some reason it detracts from it."
http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... really?? looks better? oh yeah ..must be the missing ps3 windows your pic is just darker..against everyyy other pic witch looks better ..have better textures and its not washed out! SPIN IT ALLLLL NIGHT LOOONG!! looks better on 360 and you KNOW IT!! HAHA
Now let's compare the features...and use a site which someone on planet earth has actually heard of before.
nasim is such a loser! I bet he think what he writes is true. Get a grip on reality child. Eventhough the ps3 has worse textures, it will will be a great game on the ps3.
I love when nasim sends me pointless pms (10 / 5 10:00 Addendum http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... http://forum.beyond3d.com/s... B3D???????????????PS3???????? ??????????????????????????? BIGGUDADI B3D of the mosaic-like texture to the PS3 version alone has not been confirmed because of what I tried. http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... http://yoda.dip.jp/Game/Bio... ???????????????????? The mosaic is certainly BIGGUDADI. ?????????????????????? Paste the delay, rather than waiting, even if KAWARIMASEN. sucks to be an XBOT Guess what nasim the devs already admitted it, get a grip kid
So why then does KZ2 look washed out and it's not made on the unreal engine? There are a bunch of games that look washed out on PS3 so whats your excuse now? Exactly you don't have one because no matter what you can't spin this.
Hes absolutely right
Nasim's going postal again, get ready for the PM BOMBS.
Remember that other Bioshock comparison thread where it was claimed that PS3 sucked compared to 3rd60? Hahaha that thread is NOW PROVEN to be made by an xbot who is lying his ass off just to lie to the world that PS3 sucks. Hahaha these fking delusional xbots.
ZBIMBO AKA NASIM/LENHART/SMEE/TANOD And whatever accounts you had/have more... You're one pathetic creep, when proven the PS3 had another bad port, you still try to lure PS360 owners to buy the PS3 version? If you own both consoles, get the 360 version. If you only have a PS3 still get Bioshock, it has great gameplay. Nontheless, the 360 version is graphical on a higher level. Just take it as a loss and go on dude.
Hey giant enemy crab/lobster/pog/jason360 aren't you late for your Steve Ballmer mindless acolyte worship party?
Looks fantastic on Ps3
trust me,I have both systems and the matter of fact I love ps3 more cause of the awesome AAA upcoming exclusive(lbp,kz2,r2 heavy rain,gow3) and the blu-ray being the future for games. but guys,you got to say the truth I have bioshock on 360 since last year and I finished it 3 times and am now on my forth run on hard and..the 360 version looks much better,trust me am not a fanboy,yes 2k did a bad job porting the game not only looks better on 360 but runs better as well,ps3 version seems so blurry
BIOSHOCK CAME OUT ON THE PS3! A few months ago it was Xbox and PC only owner's pride and joy that they held against PS3 converts/lovers/whatever like myself. Now? It's out on the PS3. Who cares if its a little worse looking than the 360 version?? Seriously, just get it on the PC. Whoever thought that a PORT from PC code to the PS3 with the UE3 ENGINE would make the PS3 version look better? seriously... if your that much of a graphics slut just get it on the PC or just get MGS4, Gran Turismo Prologue, Resistance 2, Uncharted Drakes Fortune, Killzone 2 or even Heavenly Sword, or just wait a bit for God of War 3 and the other games. Seriously, Bioshock is one MAD ASS GAME, if you don't have a PS3 get it on the PC or 360, if you don't have a 360 get it on the PS3 or PC, if you don't even have a PC, bad luck lol
you said it right and straight bubbles for being honest and brave.
thanks a ton mate, bubbles for you too bro!
i will be renting this when i get time from lbp, farcry2, motrstorm, fifa 09, resistance2, tomb raider this year.
Exactly. The 360 version is probably better but there's nothing wrong with this game on the PS3.
All I see is spin, excuses, and denial about how it looks on the PS3. The PS3 was hyped to be the premier graphics console this gen, but has failed to deliver the same quality experiance of gaming found on older "cheaper" machines. The fact the all of you need to defend a game that "supposed" to be superior on the PS3 platform, tells me that the PS3 is realy inferior. To top it all off, the majority of all multiplatform titles accept mabe 3-4 are like this. Only Sony's exclusive games have shown quality graphics, and those are still par or "sub par" with the 360. The PS3 is "still" losing about 90% of the time when it comes to graphics, and Alan Wake is just another nail. I'm sorry, you guys can play the "can't we all just get along" card all you want. The fact to the matter is, there is somthing wrong here and it's that the PS3 isn't "all that" with games. Like it or not but truth is truth, Xbox fans have learned to live with the RROD, it's the other side of the fence that is in extreem denial. Go to the open zone ---> and you will see what I mean.
Jason, I sure as hell wasn't hyping Bioshock because it's not my cup of tea. I knew the game was running on Unreal Engine and most of the time, the Engine works against the PS3. I played the demo last night and I didn't see anything wrong with it. Oh wow, one texture popup! I didn't have any texture popups in the demo I played so unless someone was close with a magnifying glass to watch ever single pixel, I wouldn't call the game unplayable. And how sad is this comparing a demo to a full game? The full game for the PS3 isn't out yet and already there's a comparison?! Bioshock on the PS3 looks a bit more colorful to me.
May I have to remind you ppl how well Unreal Tournament 3 was done? The graphics and frame rate was beautiful :D
I'm going to pre-order it for my Ps3 in about an hour
Ouch. Ow. Thats blurry.
There are issues with certain textures as reported already, 2k are working on that. Other than that they are identical +added blur on PS3 for edges(loos very nice in motion in my opinion)
So I could decipher what people are saying in the comments box! lol...
Are better. The Big Daddy one is correct though, I found the details on Big Daddy to be a little...lacking. Other than that, some of the water images are blurred a bit, not true.
The 360 has better textures, but if you were already gonna get this for the PS3 this isnt going to stop you.
So I see some people saying the 360 version is better because it has better graphics. I disagree. I think the PS3 version is better because it has exclusive content that the 360 version doesn't have. I would gladly give up better graphics for more content as the gameplay is what makes the game. I just think that people who only have a 360 are still butt hurt about losing a good exclusive.
I hope you feel that way about the 360's version of GTA4. you would GLADLY take extra content over better graphics.hell the 360's version has more content(coming) AND better graphics!! @16 an why is it always, wait until this game releases then people wont care about the 360. LBP may be a awesome game but its not for everybody, RFOM 1 sucked so I dont have highs hopes for part 2,the same goes with KZ2, so far it LOOKS good but what else, the first one was medicore,so again dont have high hope for part 2. now god of war IS A BAD A55 GAME an I definitly waiting on that one. but if you think those game are gonna make people forget about the 360 your just being a fanboy!!
I thought GTA4 was garbage regardless of what console it was on and it sacrificed the fun gameplay that was in the previous GTA games for realism. The series pretty much died to me after that game so i'm anticipating Saints Row 2 more as it seems more like a good GTA game than GTA4.
Does anyone care anymore about slight graphics difference? We cared back in the launch days but now? Meh. It'll feel exactly the same. You won't even notice.
The 360 version looks better. It has better colors and looks less blurry/washed out, but this shouldn't stop you PS3 only owners from getting it.
How can you compare the final released 360 version of bioshock. To the ps3 demo version?! This demo could very well be an old build of the game. Fracture did that with there demo.
When will it be possible to pre-order Bioshock 2,I want to pre-order it for my Ps3 as well
ok so they are comparing a demo to full release on 360? is that a fair comparison even if difference isn't much
so compare the demo on 360 then. looked identical to the full game. no difference. stupid n00b. u think they are going to suddenly DOUBLE the normal map resolution on your BSsh1t PORT? did BS3 suddenly get more video ram or something?!?!?!?! stupid, delusional droids! :( HAhahaHAhahahahAHAHAHAHAhahaa hAH These BS3rd-place pics are SAD!!!! TOO BLURRY! CAN'T SEE ANYTHING!!!! L;OOOLOOLOLOLOLMFAO!!!!!!!!!!! !! POOOOOOOR DROIDS!!!!!!!!!! HAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahah Looks like they took the ULTRA SHARP 360 pics and put a BLUR filter on them to make the PS3 pics, LMFAO!!!!!! I mean, we all knew PS3 sucked, but HOLY SH1T!!! LOOL!!! WOW!!! LOOLOLOLOLOLOLOO hahaahhaAHAAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAh a h ahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHA H AAHAHAhahahahahahahhahaahhaAHA A HAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahha h aahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahaha h ahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAH A HAhahahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAh a haHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahhahaah h aAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahaha h ahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAh a hahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaH A HAAHAHAhahahahahahahhahaahhaAH A AHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahh a haahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahah a hahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAA H AHAhahahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHA h ahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahhahaa h haAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahah a hahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHA h ahahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhaha H AHAAHAHAhahahahahahahhahaahhaA H AAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahah h ahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhaha h ahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHA A HAHAhahahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAH A hahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahhaha a hhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahaha h ahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAH A hahahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhah a HAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahhahaahha A HAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahaha h hahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhah a hahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAH A AHAHAhahahahahahahhahaahhaAHAA H AhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahhah a ahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahah a hahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHA H AhahahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAha h aHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahhahaahh a AHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahah a hhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAha h ahahahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHA H AAHAHAhahahahahahahhahaahhaAHA A HAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahahahahahahha h aahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAHAHAhahaha h ahahahhahaahhaAHAAHAhahaHAHAAH A HAhahahahahahahhahaahhaAHA
Are we still comparing the PS3 demo to the full 360 game? Everyone might want to curve the urge to compare once we get our mits on the actual PS3 game. Its just a suggestion though... ya know, if you want to post something a little more credible.
How could the full game be any different? The PS3 version is clearly not running at the same resolution the 360 version runs at.
Wow dude, your right... I'd be more angry at the developers, but gee golly willikers, this game blows. I played it on the PC in 1920x1080p awhile back, and still didn't enjoy it. PS3 owners. Do not support lame ports like these. Just don't even bother.
Then developers won't have to waste money trying to port something to the ps3.
Those ground textures blow KZ2 away wow. I guess the value for your PS3 is really showing and I doubt any game even exclusive to PS3 has ground textures better then this or the average 360 game. Please prove me wrong or just hit disagree you angry little fellows lol. Heck even NG2 is blowing Bioshock and KZ2 for PS3 which says a lot about the quality of the console.
Its still a good game regardless, but yes I agree the 360 version does look better, but thats because it was made for the 360! But no matter what console you own, you should get this game because this is one of the best games ever made! That being said if this game was released on the wii it would still be a great game even though the graphics would never match up to the 360 or ps3 versions.
The 360 is Anne Hathaway Hot, now back to SNL, it's funny people don't know the 360 is more powerful. Devs had to sell an year old game somehow(hyped the PS3 BS express).
this is a crap comparsion
I played this game and its weak! Yes Weak! I can't believe this title even has the hype it does. Omg, ps3 graphics on a "ported" game aren't as good. Ummmm once LBP, KZ2, R2, GoW3 come out, who the hell cares about a xbox 360??? anyone that does is just mad they spent money on the weaker system.
