I didn't realise how badly those graphics compare.

Those visuals look NOTHING like the Far Cry 2 graphics I've got on my XPS with DUAL Geforce GTX 280 SLI video cards, seriously that's shocking!

Play the PC version on maximum and then look at these graphics........the console version no offence look like trash on both versions compared with maximum on PC.

I had no idea....wow!

Hmm, strange...

Even though I own a PS3, I think the graphic card in Xbox360 is a bit stronger.

in some of the scenes I thought the x360 was mildly better, but in others I thought ps3 was better. when it was mid range normal, I thought the 360 had slightlly higher def, but in the close up, the ps3 one had less jags, looker a lot sharper without degrading the picture.

brodels5657d ago

i don't know what you guys are seeing but the ps3 looks better IMO. less jaggies and the explosion effect was better. not to mention the shading is weird on the 360 version, but someone said that's due to the video being in slowmo? in any case, that's just what i'm seeing. but i'm sure the pc version looks amazing if you got a good enough gaming rig

PC graphics >>>>>>> console graphics. Always.
Whilst a console version of a game might suffer from framerate problems or pop-in, on PC you can adjust settings/upgrade in order to alleviate these problems.
PC games often support more players online and get free added content, especially in the form of mods. Take COD4 for example; it supports over 50 players online and we got the map pack for free.

The main disadvantage of PC gaming is that it costs an awful lot.

The Killer5657d ago

yes but thats if u have the latest PC specs, and very few people upgrade their pc's every year, besides there is one or 2 things about pc gaming i dont like

1: the controls(its only good for shooting or strategy games)

2: the texture always have sharp edges while consoles have smoother edges than pc games and that a fact!

SeNiLe9115657d ago (Edited 5657d ago )

I have it and it looks just the same as the video is showing. At first I thought it might have been the art direction they where going but later I found out it wasn't the case with the PS3 version.

The game is good either way and I won't say either is better since they both have their plus and minuses.

I am sure both have the same irritations when clearing a base of enemy's, leave, come back a minute later and the enemy's have re-spawned again. I can't stand that!!!

gameraxis5657d ago

please trust i'm not a fanboy, i don't know what version is better... but when i'm playing FC2 on my ps3 sandbags and cars (and everything else) DOES NOT look that motion blurred or blurry in general, i'm calling tom foolery right off the bat here!

thor5657d ago

No textures do not have "sharper edges" on PC games, unless by that you mean the textures are higher res and look better.

If the flaws in the game's textures are more apparent on PC then that's because you're viewing it at a higher resolution than the consoles (typical console resolution is 720p which PCs were doing over 10 years ago).

You can tweak (if you want) the PC version's settings to look almost identical to the console version. Lower the resolution, lower the texture resolution so they don't have "sharp edges" as you put it.

I agree with you about the controls - for many types of game the keyboard/mouse setup just doesn't work that well. It's the keyboard that lets it down though, and of course, you can always buy a controller for PC.

DaTruth5657d ago

Does anyone's PS3 version look like that; I know mine doesn't look that blurry. They must have changed the settings to force 480p.

theEnemy5657d ago

consoles doesn't require a good processor, ram, and videocard to get good - great framerates and graphics.

Most high rated games are very beautiful.

MGS4 looks astounding and in close textures it's kinda similar to Crysis on Max settings, but ofcourse Crysis is still the most beautiful and demanding game.

Not to mention it's on a $400 console with a video card a bit less powerful than the 360.

Oh well, as for Far Cry 2, I got a bit dizzy when using the sprint. The motion blur effect or whatever is a bad addition IMO. :D

buy a ps35657d ago

the graphics cards have nothing to do with this. devs that make games for both consoles still are having allot of trouble making games for the cell processor. if you just take a look at any MGS4 video or Killzone 2 video you will notice that devs that know how to use the cell can make the 360s graphics card look like trash.

Sergeant Osiris5657d ago

video comparisons from eurogaymer are no better than the trolls you find on n4g, full of distortions, agendas and fanboyism.

ind15657d ago

@The Killer,

PC controls are only good for shooting and stradegy games?

Well, for starters, the majority of the games that are played on these consoles are shooting games. Secondly, have you ever played an RPG with a mouse and keyboard? Take WoW for example, you may have 20-30 skills - How on earth are you going to do that with a controller?

But regardless, you can use an Xbox 360 controller or even a PS3 controller on a PC anyway.

And don't try and come here with some "facts" when in fact they're just made up garbage.

theEnemy5657d ago

Buubuhbuhbut teh Cell! :D

I wonder where are those idiots that said that lines now.

yesah5657d ago

obviously the best graphics would be on the Wii.

Bolts5656d ago

The console version looks like crap, what a shocker! Even more of a shocker, Farcry was designed to be a console game from the ground up. Now you see why there isn't a Crysis port for the console.

ps3 looks fine with no errors but if u look close at xbox u see missing pixels when showing on the computer focus on the xbox side
also if u look a more closer xbox looks like a cartoon in some parts

air15657d ago

omg, so i been playing a cartoon this whole time?!

i noticed clearer texture on the 360 side ps3 looked a little fuzzy.

The Killer5657d ago

who cares which one is a little bit better? u cant realize it if u dont have both versions running side by side, but it matter if one version is broken and full of bugs or not!!

normally ps3 version should be better since its more powerful but that also depends on the devs and which they choose as a lead console for their game!!

if the game is one disk then it sucks, this gen should be about 15GB and plus for any next gen game!! anything under us just a last gen game with improvements

pwnsause5657d ago

"omg, so i been playing a cartoon this whole time?!"

well you do seem to like Power Ranger Games

"normally ps3 version should be better since its more powerful but that also depends on the devs and which they choose as a lead console for their game"

Ah you came up with it yourself or did ken told you when you were riding his bicycle? YOur fking ps3 is the weakest console this gen even wii beats it with innovation and availability of games. PS3rd will flop and remain third this gen. Keep jerking off thinking its Teh most powerful console but in reality it sucks donkey's a$$.

snakeater35657d ago

weakest console ? yeah right ....it it makes you sleep better at night kiddo
btw have a good long look at killzone 2 and repeat what u just said .
btw the 360 is also good, im not dissing any console like the fanboy you are.
