The neverending debate over which console makes prettier pictures continues with Bethesda's epic Fallout 3. GamesRadar has played a bit of each, scrutinized the footage, and now present you with their findings.
hahahah, that video cannot be serious... look how absurdly grainy and blocky it is. As I said, the Ps3 version looks like ass... I've played it and I own it and I'm trying to give it away in a contest as we speak.... I can't speak for the xbox 360 version, but the engine just isn't here for a great looking experience. I'm sorry.
I warned u. Those were pretty low-res solution, so it's impossible to decide. But Conclusion is: They look the same.
yes the 360 version kinda looks better in THAT VIDEO ! THAT VIDEO
I think this was a bad comparison video.
the funny thing is if they used the ps3 cell propley they will not be any need for all this videos!!!
Cant make a reasonable comparison from that clip, the resolution is about the same as a gameboy colour. Will still pick up both version to make my own decision before commiting my time.
The game in general isn't impressive visually so I don't care. I care more about the framerate in this situation. It's like GTA4 who cares if you have the better looking version when the game looks ass average.
You know it! They both looked better than the other in different situations. And besides, as long as they keep porting from 360 to PS3, it'll never be exactly the same.
How can anyone take them serious with that type of quality video? Were they playing gamecube on a 25" floor model from the 70's? That was such a waste of time like all these comparison articles and vids.
trying to save your own credibility. Don't worry, no one cares what you wrote on your biased site.
The PS3 and the 360 are so close in capabilities (typically) that the comparisons really need to stop. If you want a real comparison of the consoles then you should compare both the PS3 and the 360 to the PC version to see how well the consoles are holding up a few years after their release. ( I think they are both doing great for no more than what is under the hood of the consoles )
No punt intended about the "cell" phone either! That has to be the crappiest video ever!! There nothing worst, even on youtube, quality wise! Some people have too much time on their hands obviously! P.S.: If they are really that crappy, I'm even happier since I got the PC version, and it does look awesome (I didn't even crank the graphic because my video card is 1 year old).
wow they both look like crap if they really look that bad then who cares
Dude, I have both versions (360 & PS3) - I work at a Gamestore and was able to take home a used version of the 360 someone brought in, they were saying something about bugs...so first off the 360 one already has its fair share of problems. Visually...the two, they are not drastically different...one doesn't look like ass compared to the other. This game, visually, is not amazing by any standards. Hell, I should put a video comparing the two, it would entirely better quality than this is. If you're saying the PS3 version looks like ass than you have to say that the other does too...if someone were running the two on two different TVs and you didn't know which one was which you wouldn't be able to tell. Honestly, you wouldn't. After adjusting in game lighting, making sure your HD TV is all specd out right in terms of HD graphics with the PS3 they look damn near identical. But this game in general is nothing to marvel at graphics wise...that goes for the PC version too...which I've seen in action for a few hours at a friends.
spoiled by Wipeout HD ,GT5 and XMB,and Bluray!! We are beggining to expect quality stuff!!! After viewing the Incredible Hulk on BLuray and Wipeout HD!! Can you blame us for expecting a PS3 game to look like well a PS3 game,I.e not a friggin low budget hand me down PC engine port of the 360!!!
This is gameradar we are talking about.
Since the Ps3 version is the only version with true HiDefinition graphics,it is in fact the best looking version of Fallout 3.
How are we supposed to notice any difference in a low quality 5 inch video?
another typical comparison...first word is that the 360 gets the jump with 'slightly better and more consistancy'...then several reviews don't even mention it...then the comparison videos show nothing of the sort... that video was crap though...I hope it was the video and not the game because both version chugged at numerous times (think it was the video though, because when it would happen both 360 and PS3 version seemed to be moving at 5 fps)... I also innitially though the 360 had a much further draw distance...but then saw how it was simply the camera was centered differently on the horizon between the two...the PS3 version the horizon was just lower on the screen compared to the 360 at numerous times...but all the background detail was there for both... neither looked overly impressive though...as far as open world games go right now, it still looks like GTAIV is the best looking one...and thats saying something, but GTAIV doesn't even look that ridiculous...Far Cry 2 was a pretty big let down for both consoles imo...the pop for both systems was just too much to take, and really hurt the immersion of the world...
I would trust what they write if they could back it up by posting a video comparison that's actually watchable.
the ps3 version is more vivid and bright while the 360 is darker,overall on a standard tv bout version will look similar,while on a full hd 1080p tv the ps3 will show more vivical improvement,which is clearly shown thank u and have a wonderful day
"we’re sorry to say that neither console looks consistently better than the other. Some textures look better on PS3, while others look broken. Some colors look more vibrant on 360, but some look more washed out. "
The video quality sucks so probably we should wait for Gmaetrailers even though they'll probably make the PS3 version look even more crappy than it is... ne ways the game isn't that graphically astounding ne ways so who cares which version looks better aslong a gameplay is tight thats all that matters.....
Is it the same experience? So long as that holds true then whatever. Unless someone has a hard on for DLC then it doesn't matter. You buy this game for Story not graphics. If I want graphics I'll get Alan Wake or Killzone 2.
Looked like I was watching something even a PS1 could do. :|
It looks best on Ps3
I don't give a truck which looks better i just wish they release a patch to fix all the bugs in this game soon. The bugs make the game feel rushed and i think it needed a few more months in the cooker.
i cant see the difference.
i always new 360 had exclusives in the bag. but now multiplatforms to? it appears that yes sony is killing the ps3
thats old days PS3 has a better exclusive library for Fall some recent multiplats look better on PS3 too eg DEADSPACE X360 is already killing itself. even with a price cut which is perhaps x360's last weapon it got outsold by ps3 last quarter in global sales plus LBP and Resistance 2 havent been launched worldwide
Maybe because videos of this quality and size should be used for Nintendo DS vs. PSP comparisons.
Lol, what exclusives? Gears and Halo, thats all thats worth while. And both are sub par.
Better exclusives? Well for one, that's an opinion, and 2, what else is coming out other than LBP and R2 for the Holidays? There's still 3 games that are to come out on the 360 for the holidays, and by the way.. Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts is awesome (been playing the demo). Now I just need to play Left 4 Dead and Gears of War 2.
Oh wow a half-life 2 mod sold at full retail counts as an exclusive AAA. And yikes, a more limited LBP with only customizable vehicles but no level or physics editing is most certainly an exclusive contender. Finally a game based off a 3D engine built in 2004-2005 must be the unquestionable latest and greatest. None of these titles outclass anything already available on even multiplatforms this year (exluding geow2). Get over it. I guess if you want you could include Valkyria Chronicles, Naruto Storm, Motorstorm2, and Wipeout HD to the PS3 lineup. But like I mentioned b4, it makes not a whit of difference.
Ken Kutaragi truly created a masterpiece
after this whole thread is over the one thing we would definately have figured out is that you FBI are a very funny person you should try doing stand up
@360 man Yeah FBI is a hoot.
Someone else who doesn't realize that the fact that they use a blu-ray disc doesn't make it anymore HD than a regular DVD. It's all 'ones and zeros' buddy.
This is seriously one of the worst game's i've ever played. I spent the last hour just walking around doing nothing picking up scrap metal ..just to throw it away 10 minutes later cause im "encumbered" And yet i can't stop playing it... Damn you Bethesda!
And yep, you get hooked. (PC version in my case)
Just as i thought xbox360 version is superior in sharper graphics and everything .The ps3 version displays awful graphics and is blurry due to poor hardware.
SHE IS A LOSER! TAKE ALL HER BUBBLES! All hail Xenu
pp you just love to leach on attention. Guys, we seriously have to ignore it. It likes attention. Don't even touch its bubbles, don't touch its disagree button, don't touch its ignore button. You can read it's comments but DON'T respond or it will be happy.
it's you again. read this.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... this could help you
The outdated hardware thus has the inferior version of Fallout 3.
Blah who cares, I got the best console version on my 360. I'll leave the crying up to the last place gang.
You're crying right now soo? Your the last place gang?
Even you have to admit, if you are going to do a comparison of a PS3 and 360, do it with a freaking HD source that is properly setup and calibrated for both systems. Enough of this low rez bullsh1t.
just a question...who exactly is the last place gang?... I am sure you are referring to overall installed base (biased, as not all consoles have been on the market for the same time)...and of course, not the obvious last place in annual world wide sales...which paints a very different picture... any logical person who takes out advantages put in place by releasing a console, that is available world wide some 1.5 years before the PS3 is released world wide, would simply factor which console is selling the least since all competition was fairly available to consumers...and the logical answer then becomes the 360 being in last place...I'm sure that is not what you meant though... hell we can leave out that the PS3 wasn't available in Europe until spring 2007 for argument sake... So say since late 2006...each console is available for purchase 'everywhere'...annual world wide sales to date as of: 1st Wii... 2nd PS3... 3rd..I can't remember the name of it and it would be rude to say that during all of 2006 the 360 couldn't even manage to outsell the PS2...that was when the 360 was the ONLY 'next gen' console available...absolutely no real competition from any rival competitor yet...so to put it bluntly: the 360 has not once come in first place in overall annual sales for this planet since it was released...not one time...thats hardly the market leader you fanatics make it out to be...and it has never on a single occasion out sold a Sony branded console world wide either...it wins a territory here, a few months there...yet never outsells any competition overall...welcome back to reality sir... its even funnier that the thing has ALWAYS been cheaper than the PS3... honestly...does stuff like this bother you crab?...I would not have brought any of this up...its just that you and your bretheron constantly chime in with how the PS3 is 'third'...and comments like that generally come from fans of a leading team...no Xbox device has achieved 'first place' in anything...save for having a lead over unreleased systems...which is hardly anything to brag about...it got kicked around by the PS2 the entire first year it was released...then got kicked around by the Wii and PS3 the next year, even though the PS3 was the 'most overhyped pos ever' according to you guys...and the trend continues...if I were you I would simply be happy that the most ghetto console in history is still getting support from ignorant fanboys and from 3rd parties... thanks again, tissues are behind the bar...and I'll be here all week...
Ps3 is 3rd.
Ahh, here we go. 7.1: Sorry, it took me so long to respond but I was busy playing the superior version of Fallout 3 on the 360. If you think I'm crying because I'm playing the best version maybe those are tears after laughing so hard at the power of the cell that has been overhyped over and over again which here we are basically 3 years into the PS3's life and it still hasn't shown. 7.2: You are correct, we should at least be comparing an HD source and really this comparison is rather flimsy. However, the consensus seems to be the 360 version is better with even a major PS3 magazine acknowleding it. 7.3: You know I'm referring to the PS3 which no matter how you want to spin is sitting in last place in install base; which this fictional console war is based on. You do a good job painting a positive PS3 picture and bad one for MS. But let's look at it from how sorry it is for the market leader for the last 2 gens can't hold on to it's market share and who thought because of a 120mil install base they would coast to first place. You know it's funny I don't hear these excuses from the Wii who launched when the PS3 did. MS is the underdog here and they needed an advantage of first launch and it worked. Because despite how you paint a rosey picture here is the truth in the "next gen" console war. 1. Wii 2. Xbox 360 3. that system I can't think of the name. PS2 was cheaper and had a library of games that the 360 could not compete with when it launched and that is the strategy MS is working with now. Cheap cost and a huge library, even though it still is small compared to PS2's library. If/When the PS3 overtakes the 360 in total install base then you won't hear about it from me again. The most ghetto console? Sorry, but after you've been thru as many PS2's as I have with DRE issues and NO problems with the 360 at all I can't agree with that statement. I know the RROD is seriously lame but at least MS fixes the problem for 3 years. While $ony told me to piss off when I told them it was their console that had the problem and still to this day they won't admit any fault. Lucky the internet wasn't as prevelant as it is today or the PS2 would of been getting the sh*t that the 360 gets now. Now I'm going back to playing the best console version of Fallout 3. Hang on to them tissues you can pass them out to the last place gang sitting in the back of the bus.
haha nice to see a reply...I figured it was just a loaded original comment to stir things up, and you wouldn't be back to check out how fired up any of us got... thank you for appreciating how hard I worked to paint a rosy picture for the PS3...I'll admit, it definitely did surprise me how many times they blundered so far this generation basically by their own sword... interestingly though you state how the 360 losing to the PS2 in 2006 was because of price...yet the PS3 is consistently outselling the 360 worldwide since launch...and has not once been cheaper...just needed to point that out... but yeah...360 is last in overall installed base still...you are right about that...and the ghetto comment was a low blow, I apologize...
That is a crap video for a comparison. N4g should change the sight from News for Gamers to Fanboywars.com or something.
THANK YOU! Am I the only one who sees that this site completely revolves around the PS3?
But the one on the left looks like Sh!t or Gears 2
You dont like my game!?!?!?! It's OK, because neither do I.
this vid is a joke .. cant see a damn thing... Y BOTHER.. EVEN LOOKING..
1) What the hell am I supposed to compare with this teeny, tiny video? Give me a REAL comparison, HD footage, properly calibrated for each system and setup they are on. THEN compare, IF you must. This is just pathetic, sad fanboy fodder. 2) Gamesradar. LULz.
im buying this one on for my pc trying to break it up. The game looked cool on both consoles too me. Good job bethasda
This video just shows the might of the Playstation 3 compared to other consoles. It just reinforces the notion if you truely want a next gen experience you need to "Jump Out" that other system and fully embrace the richness of the Sony console. Would you really want to look back in this gaming era and regret not making the obvious choice? Stand with me
purely for the fact that it comes as part of a bundle ( 360 Elite, Fallout 3 and Fable 2 for only 250 quid!) ---W00T--- play.com ---W00T---
360 looks better. get over it
Does the irony of your name ever get to you? Anyway, how can anyone tell the difference with such a low quality video and the stupid logo taking up half the PS3 side? Troll on though, I guess. EDIT: The reviews may say so(and even then, most say slightly better), but you're saying it on a post that has a tiny, sh1t-quality video like the video proves the 360 version is better.
how am i trolling. all the reviews says so.
Look everyone, a PS3 owner who will admit that at that part of the video, there is a big difference...look at the red signage. But......notice how depending on the light source (brighter light) the graphics in turn look better, so for comparison this is useless except maybe to appease PS3 fans. The graphics look sick on my 720p by the way, but if you know anything about Fallout, it's that story and immersion that really gets ya. And we all got the same story, right? -f-ing exclusive DLC- *patooie*
blowed. Non hd video comparison? Like comparing one glass of muddy water to another. It's not nice till you put a filter on it. I think we should wait till we see this on hd. My only question. Why was the sky in the 360 white?
d/l content, that's all ms has got,hahahaha
And the fact that it runs and looks nicer on the 360 version.. which is what reviewers are saying.
