See how the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Ubisoft's open-world FPS compare.
Looks the same?
they look nearly exactly the same. Am I the only one tired of these comparisons?
If you look better @ 00:39, you see the Xbox 360 version has jaggies or something like that just watch the Yello Car's hood
Thats called being nitpicky... Who cares they are close enough.
Actually I was expecting a way worse PS3 version, but actually its not. I think the framerate looks lower in the PS3 version, but the details are higher. Most visible on the leave texture which has a way higher resolution on the PS3 version, for example. Also the hand uses dithering in the 360 while its smooth shaded on the PS3. So, while in recent comparisons you couldn't tell a lot, here you can.
The 360 version has sharper textures The Ps3 Version has softer shadows The PC version looks better than them both And Crysis is still the best looking game to date /discussion
They are virtually the same as far as this video goes. You can't go wrong with either version but I picked up the 360 game due to friends choices more than anything else.
These comparisons are really getting old, they serve no purpose other than flame bait. Oh and please tell these people to switch their RGB to full range on the PS3.
the ps3 has better textures for once
Violator is right!!! although a PC loser! Hope you enjoy clinging to your PC library for now cause this game may take advantage of PC RAM advantage but in terms of diversity and quality .PC games are getting very same old same old..
there is one biggish difference. the ps3 version as tearing. noticed it towards th end and couldnt be bothered to look again to see if there was some on the 360 version. did anybody see any?
At first I couldn't see a difference, but I knew for a FACT there would be differences between things like LOD. DAMN IM GOOD! 00:29 Notice how the white chairs fade in on 360 FIRST, a couple of seconds BEFORE the PS3 version. you can see they are at the same distance because of the tire on the left of the road is at the same distance from the car. another WIN for 360's MUCH superior CPU/GPU. apparently TEH CELL wasn't powerful enough to render a few chair polygons down the road. WHOOPS!!! and u can GUARANTEE the rest of the PS3's LOD is closer in than the 360's, too. everything like, dead bodies, guns, trees, all LOD, fade ins, tree shadows, etc. they had to pull everything in just a bit to get a stable framerate on PS3. FACT. 2:51 HAhahaHAHAHah normal map resolution FTL!!! HAHAHAHAHHA BACK SEAT OF THE CAR HAHahahAHHAHaha http://img355.imageshack.us... DAMN, I hate being right all the time. HAAAAHAHAHahahahaAAHAHAHAHAah ahaAHHAA SPIN It!
if you had or have issues with the 360 call cable law office at 1-916-608-7995 and they will give you what you need to be a part of this civil suit. im on my 6th 360 ring of death and im tired of it and im on my 1st ps3-wii-ps2-psp-and ds- even my dreamcast and ps1 still works .
Was there ever any chance that you would find the playstation graphics better. Fanboys... sheesh!!
Ubisoft always makes mediocre ports for the PS3
One of the version has 2 extra pixels!!! I won't tell you which one though. But that's a huge difference. I could notice it even if I was driving a car at 149 mile per hours while shooting rabbits 100 yards away. C'mon, those 2 extra pixels make a whole lot of difference! That's where we are today. How sad!
"TEH CELL wasn't powerful enough to render a few chair polygons down the road. WHOOPS!!!" I think because it was cloudy day on PS3. (see picture)
Well said! Bubbles to you! Im fed up of these stupid comparisions and people arguing over very minor differences! These look more or less the same! I have it on the 360 as I dont own a PS3 yet but I would be more than happy owning either of these versions! People need to just enjoy the games they buy rather than having to try and prove their version is better!
I'm not even gonna bother viewing this. Frankly it's pointless, it looks fantastic on every platform. When you first put in the disc and started it up were you impressed by the visuals? Id wager yes so who cares what it looks like else where.
How long until the first person claims there is a difference? These video comparisons are ridiculous, play the damn game, enjoy it...
I can't see it,looks rad!
I think that the PS3 version has slightly darker colors than the 360 version does. From 1:50- 1:55 when the guy was adjusting the watch, to me the watch dial looked a bit more darker on the PS3 and the watch on the 360 version had a slightly lighter dial. Also in that same scene when he's adjusting the watch, the guy's hands/fingers look slightly darker on the PS3 than 360 to me. But, both versions look good regardless.
who says their console looks better is truly deranged. Even the pop-in is th same. Good job Ubi Soft. One to shut up the fanboys. Enjoy! Hang on there is one difference. The time on the 360s watch was faster LOL! darkequitus: PSN/XBL/Xfire/Steam/WoW
Awesome as always xbox360 version comes out on top with better and sharper graphics compared to ps3 version with washed out colors.
lol, idiot. you must be blind. go kill yourself and do us favour.
You give decent 360 owners a bad name. THEY'RE BOTH THE SAME.
PP How can you say the PS3 version has washed out colours, when its darker than the 360's. Edit: Pennywise. Yeah I think your right. They all must be pre teens.
This guy is a joke. Wouldnt it be funny to find out the 360 and ps3 spammers are all the same person.
that the tags on the two videos were switched around, then watch PP "uhm I mean yeh the other one has washed out colors".. I bet he didn't even watch the vid. He's a one script bot!
The game itself looks and plays way better on the ps3. The controller for the ps3 suits this game way better. The run and slide combo move works way better on the ps3, the 360's controller is not as smooth on this important move. The run is kinda choppy on the 360 version. The colors looked way better on the ps3 as well as the smoothness of the game. Like I said I played both, but only bought the ps3 version, cause the 360's version didn't play as with the controller.
dont you think the controller is a matter of prefrence more than anything? xbox 360s controll is designed with FPS in mind ya know i cant say for the other 2. i prefer the 360 controller for cod 4 etc. but then again thats my prefrence lighten up next time yeah :) as for perfomance. ps3-9/10 x360-9/10
I dont think so fuk face. Did everyone see that pixel problem in the 360 version ?? On the yellow vehicle squares pop up, and when the guy walks out of shadows, those squares appear again on the weapon. Yea its sharp, too sharp - you can see all pixels. PS3 looks much better, 360 looks ..broken ? Patch Pl0X
If you HONESTLY cannot see that the Xbox 360 version is superior here, I really don't know what to tell you. I'm hoping you're just joking around by saying PS3 version is better, because if you are actually serious.. dang. I don't know what to say. Go to the optometrist?
Some reality is required http://img355.imageshack.us... Btw, i didnt originate that image, but thanks to whoever did. The image shows once more that the ps3 multiplat version is always a little more gimped than competing versions. Again, why would you spend more moolah on a ps3 when the best version is on the 360?
Ha. These are so pointless. No difference.
I knew it. Who didn't see this coming? They look the same, except that the PS3's version is slightly darker. I'm considering this game because it looks like fun.
yea the ps3 has darker colors. >.> same thing happened in armored core 4. -nai-
Looked great on both systems.
Haha I was actually going to lean slightly towards the PS3 as everything seemed smoother. But yeah it was funny even the pop-in is the same on that safe house.
FANBOYS! START YOUR ENGINES!
PS3 looks like its using a Vaseline again like in GTA and it is washed out to hell 360 whoops "BUM" once again. Ps3 most overhyped & underachieving product of all time, FACT.
...I think you idiots say things like this to start fanboy wars. Pathetic.
Another one who didn't watch it. If anything the 360 version was slighty washed out. FACT
What else do you pull out of your Arse besides facts?
watch the video again. washed out colors. right... they look almost exactly the same color-wise. but wait, why are there no clouds in the 360 version? nvm i guess it's still better cause you say so. Noob....
A brown substance known as poo.
HAHAH YOU CANT ! no more bubbles for you poor kid, anywho if you look at the ps3 verson there are clouds at 0:15 -0:20
when he opens the hood look at the shadow on the xbox it looks pixelated
got a lot of your hidden feelings cumming to the surface there.
... but other than that, I honestly dont care all that much. Just pick whichever version has the lowest loading-times, and which controller you prefer for a 1st person shooter. edit: it will be interesting to see these comparisons once the Xbox allows you to install the game to HDD. Also, is there a site somewhere that keeps track of which version of a multi-console game is better on which machine? Pretty soon I'll own both consoles, meaning I'll just be buying the best version of a certain game, regardless of platform. A site with that kinda info would be most helpfull.
I personally think the PS3 version has better graphics (not that I care). Why are there barley any clouds on the 360 version? The beginning takes place at the same time with the same weather (In the game). There should be no reason there are clouds in one and not the other. Unless one has better graphics than the other.
that is all I noticed...both have the texture change issues, you can easily see it at the beginning when driving...the grass and rock walls texture maps change drastically at certain distances... the PS3 seems to have more V-sync problems...and the 360 was seemingly lacking clouds and had slightly different particle effects (the fire looked different in the burning checkpoint, not better or worse, just different)... some where saying the PS3 version has more draw distance problems...and this video totally proves that wrong...as well as having a stuttering framerate...I have trashed entire towns already in Far Cry 2 on the PS3...and not a single noticable hiccup in the frame rate whatsoever... its a great game, but I would recommend anyone wanting to play either wait for a demo or rent it first...it has ALL the problems that every open world game has, which annoys the hell out of me...some missions are not fun...at all...and you spend more time getting to the locations that you need to do your work then you do actually doing your work... and the save system is 100% broken crap...but at times, the visuals are insane (although other times it looks pretty bland, depends on the time of day and your location)...i'm enjoying it, but pretty happy I didn't buy it so far...
Looks sweet on both systems. Thumbs up to UBISOFT for not half @$$ing this game for the PS3. And whoever said that the PS3 version was inferior to both the PC and 360 needs to buy glasses!
the console versions both don't handle this game they way you would like.
max detail 1920 x 1200 50 fps, sweet
Yeah how come we never see console vs PC version videos. Oh I know why because it is pretty much straight forward the PC version would blow the console version away.
Kevnb, why would anybody disagree with you. Hmm let me see, a PC with 512mb+ Graphics memory and main memory 2gigs+ or a console with just 512mb total. Its a no brainer really.
Oh you would be surprised what some people on this board believe digger18. I know some people that still claim a $4,000 PC can't match a PS3 or 360 when it comes to graphics and horse power ..... Oh wait sorry that was the retards at Lucasarts. The fact is if you want your games to look the "best" then you better get a decent PC. Both the 360 and PS3 are evenly matched as we are seeing so the only format that leaves consoles in the dust graphics wise is the PC.
your PC has no spyware/virus or else your big memory/cpu will hinder your game dramatically! damn I downloaded all those porno's and now my Pc is a piece of crap!
Yeah you don't by a console for the graphics. You do it for the lower price and the less amount of hassle.
consoles are less hassle and everything, Im talking about Far Cry 2 in particular though. The pop-in in the console versions is pretty bad, alot of other little glitches too.
Only comparison I am making is how much time I'll spend with this or LBP.
just noticed from 0:17 to 0:36 there are alot more clouds in the sky than the 360. hmmmm, looks strange check it out.
This game has dynamic weather lol.
Regardless of it having dynamic weather changes it wouldn't take effect until sometime in the game moron. Both games start off the same so there shouldn't be a difference in weather change. Also that was an ingame cut scene running at the same time LOL.
and i love this game
I don't think it looks different on any platform except the PC - I have the PS3 and PC versions - but that is natural. I will say I am not blown out of the water by any version though. The engine has definitely taken a hit since Deunia was first introduced. While the game has been a blast I find some of the design choices perplexing and frankly somewhat idiotic. One need look no further than the convoy ambush missions you get from the arms dealers. When you accept a mission, you travel to the marked location on the map and there you will find the convoy. It will either be traveling in a continual circle or else driving back and forth relentlessly between two points a short distance apart. It kills the realism approach that was originally trumpeted for the game. A better approach would have been to provide the player intel on travel times of the convoy the fact they always hit certain checkpoints for refueling. It isn't just that one incident either. Blow up a checkpoint, kill everyone, load up on ammo and supplies and leave. Drive by later and the checkpoint is fully rebuilt with the same security and look. How about beefing up the security there the 4th time I destroy the place? Other locations such as the Lumber camp, the fort or anywhere are the same way. How about briefcases left lying in the middle of the savannah with diamonds in them. Or the one behind the waterfall? Seriously there were more realistic ways to put currency out for gathering. And anyone that has been to Africa can tell you the black market in gold is far more prominent that the one for diamonds. Or my biggest issue, where are the gunmen in villages of innocent bystanders? Where are the civilians in this country? Having been to Africa several times I can say this isn't close. It reminds me of GRAW...only bad guys around. I took a few rounds when I started the game before I realized there isn't a single innocent person in the game so far and I have been all over the place. And the human smugglers are not innocent either. Even with the flaws it is still the main thing I am playing though I did have to get a MGS4 fix in last night for a few hours (I find MGS4 to be the greatest achievement in gaming to date). But when realism is one of the founding ideas it is sad to see such a feature abandoned when it could have been included as part of some very insightful game mechanics. Do not misunderstand me. This GTA IV in Africa is very enjoyable but there are some glaring design flaws that stop the game cold from moving into high gear. I wouldn't care about the lack of realism had it not been pimped by the dev team or the fact that certain mechanics demonstrate some fairly brain dead ideas. On the other hand it is refreshing to see AI that does not have xray vision and you can flank them as they are busily searching for you. Of course I haven't seen one AI with a weapon that failed or jammed. They can also be a little suicidal at times.
You said some things that I noticed too! Right on mate! And most of the issues were kind of easy to solve, thats what pisses me off! The respawning of the post guards is realy ridiculous! Bubbles to you for saying what I was thinking when I'm playing it
Notice the big ol' "O" when it says xbox 360 version and reload? Then it has an "X" about 4 frames later by the reload. This was 1 version of the game, guys. This is a common thing nowadays it seems.
