PS3 Underdelivers Again - FarCry 2 Gimped?

After all this hullabaloo about how the PlayStation 3 is the only "true" HD console, here comes the release of FarCry 2 to slap Sony's PR in the balls. In addition to people complaining about the messed-up widescreen and mandatory 3.5GB install, the PS3 version falls short of its Xbox 360 counterpart by only supporting 720p while the 360 version supports full 1080p.

Ripten noticed this themselves just by looking at the back of the case for the game, a photo of which they've conveniently provided for you:

Misleading information, both consoles the game is 720p native, all games by default can be up scaled, Halo3 is 540 but the box still says 1080, article worded only to be flame-bait.

The statement about 1080p is completely false and using GIMPED in the headline is just plain exaggerative. http://www.videogaming247.com/2008/10/06/far-cry-2-720p-but-no-60-frames-a-second/ http://www.videogaming247.com/2008/10/06/far-cry-2-720p-but-no-60-frames-a-second/

Seriously ripten. You KNOW the difference between upscaling and native resolutions. Far Cry 2 is native 720p on both consoles (or somewhere near that resolution). The 1080p is merely upscaling, something the 360 can do much more easily than the PS3. Sigh. Ripten, you were better than this. Sigh.

Every xbox game has 1080p on the package, but it does not mean that it is 1080p native. They are both 720p native, so no difference!

The 360 version doesn't actually support full 1080p, its just unscaled to 1080p. Many games say 1080p on the back but don't actually support that resolution.

FC 2 is 720p on both consoles
Ubi Montreal themselves confirmed that

1080p mode could be upscaled mode which will be supported by PS3 too since PS3 upscales games too

@rad
No x360 games support 1080p native . It only upscales to the rez
PS3 on the other hand has 6 games at 1080p at 60 fps

FC 2 is 720p on both consoles
It upscales to that Rez

Is fucin retared don't listen to that nut. lol

NBA Steet HomeCourt, Virtua Tennis and Geometry Wars 2 runs at 1080p native on the 360, off the top of my head.

EDIT: Yes Jolly I'm startiing to think a huge part of the PS3 fanbase is are users with multi accounts.

180p native:
NBA Street Home Court
Virtua Tennis
Geometry Wars 2
FIFA street
Boogie Bunnies

I'm sure there is more but no one cares and MSFT doesn't boast the differece between upscaled or native so 99% gamers are ignorant to the number.

lwhatee5714d ago

No games run 1080p natively on x360
Wipeout as u have seen in 1080p native at 60 fps
same goes to ridge racer 7, and Gt5p and some other ps3 games

no game on x360 run at 1080p native cuz x360 doesnt have the bandwidth to support that rez.
ps3 on the other hand has like 26 games at 1080p with some running at 60 fps

isn't it weird that roshambo and iwatee both post the same links? I am sure it isn't the same person. I am completely sure that this isn't nasim. So I wonder who it could be.

GiantEnemyCrap5714d ago (Edited 5714d ago )

Ha ha ha we decive all of you. It was easy to use lies like this to sucker dumb 360 lemmings and now these stories are starting meaningless brushfires.

pog, you are giving us 360 fans a bad name. If you cant spell retarded then you should shut up. Otherwise you look retarded. Wait, you are. Oh why bother.

poopsack5713d ago

All I have to say is your pathetic. Posting this false crap here, believing it, making a big deal out of it, and then defending it after the author himself says its incorrect. Im surprised you passed the test to become a contributor. When you just posted an article thats flamboyant, incorrect, and unnecessary.

someone is so enamored by Giant Enemy Crab, that they wanted to mimmick them and start a new account. Seriously dud, you are a crapping loser.

power of Green 5713d ago

News update from the site.

"UPDATE: Some articles about FarCry 2’s resolution have been brought to my attention, but upon reviewing them, I don’t think anything has changed. Articles mentioning the native resolution of the game, on PS3 and 360, as being 720p are only talking about the native resolution, and I made no mention of native resolutions. It is irrelevant. Yes, both consoles run the game at 720p native resolution. The 360 can upscale it to 1080p, but the PS3 does not do so naturally. While it may be possible to “trick” your PS3 into outputting in 1080p, the game itself does not actively support it. Many PS3 games that I have seen clearly show that they support 1080p, not necessarily natively, on the back of the box — FarCry 2 is not one of them.

I find it odd that if the PS3 could support 1080p on all games that it is not mentioned on the game’s case. Requiring customers to resort to some backdoor trick to achieve what is supposed to be built in to the console and that other games (on both 360 and PS3) more clearly support — it’s ridiculous.

I explicitly said that the game likely plays just as well, so I don’t know what the fuss is about. Sony has clearly done it’s job convincing some people that the PS3 is obviously superior, but I’m still left wondering why they wouldn’t help advertise that on the games themselves."
