Not really a difference.

Just the gauges look different for the xbox 360 .

G3TDOWN3717d ago

Show me an Xbox 360 game that beats Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 graphics, then we can talk about which console has more power ;)

None of PS3 business that noob developers make games for it

Greywulf3717d ago (Edited 3717d ago )

Its like you hear the door from the bombshelter slowly creak open... they flock out gleefully with their Microscopes in hand to prove that again the well known truth that the only time a 360 game looks better than a ps3 one, is when the developers mess up the ps3 version.

You want to compare racers as being technical indicators.. i mean.. do we really want to go down that route?

I mean.. really?

Let me know if you realllly want to do that. I think Sony has most beat with a handheld, let alone a console title.

(not at you kionic)


G3, ah beat me to the punch :)

G3TDOWN3717d ago

EA has been around FOR A LONGGGG TIMEEE looool look at their games !! Only 2 out of 10 games are good

now lets look at Naughty DOG ! I never heard of Naughty dog until Uncharted 1. Now look at uncharted 2, THE BEST looking game on console

Why is it photos provided by sites like this look so differently then they do on my displays?

People don't fall for flame bait comparisons articles like this.
Be your own judge / critic.

poindat3717d ago


Am I reading that out of context or something, or does it just not make any sense (in relation to the article)?

Bereaver3717d ago

I actually like the ps3 version better but just because of the lighting.

To me, this game feels like an "Arcade" style game. Bright colors, flashy cars, great surroundings. It just seems like bright colors makes it more appealing.

Anyway, it's almost even. I just like the brighter lighting better.

Again, just my opinion.

DERKADER3717d ago

Don't let this be another Ghostbusters situation. I'm getting this game on PS3 because I have Logitech wheel. I need to invest in a good gaming PC then I won't have this problem.

a_squirrel3716d ago

They both look pretty :)

there, fanboys happy, developers happy, my job here is finished

JokesOnYou3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

Sorry bro, there is a noticeable difference here and its not just the gauges on the 360 version...ps3 version looks blurry, most the comparisons we've seen lately have been *almost identical...this one has some issues, for now lets just blame it on the site, until we see the game running...sigh, EA. [shakes head] lol


LONEWOLF2313716d ago

Exactly no real difference whatsoever!
Ohh and G3TDOWN fanboy much?? Mass Effect 2 looks just as good as Uncharted 2 so i wouldnt call Uncharted 2 the best looking on any console!

bushfan3716d ago

X360 look sharp..Ps3 a little Blurry...BUT the Game look really ugly in both consoles

Forza 3 and GT5 will be better options to pick up that NFS:shift

ape0073716d ago

the 360 version looks a bit more sharper\crisper

I'll get it on 360

lociefer3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

ps3 is darker, and u can feel the speed of the game just by looking at the ps3 screenshots+ the trees at the ps3 look better, even in blur

randomwiz3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

gimped images. In 99% of the ps3 images of the exterior, the vehicle is going faster creating the sense of speed blur effect in Shift

otherwise, both are extremely similar

SupaPlaya3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

He's one of the 360 fans here that isn't afraid to show his preference without fanboyism.

SaberEdge3716d ago

Screenshots are not a very effective way of comparing games. Performance is far more important, and unfortunately you can't see that in a screenshot. In fact, differences have to be pretty substantial before you will notice them in a screenshot.

beavis4play3716d ago

i think both look good. i may get this sometime, but not now.......i've got too many games in the next month and not enought time!

slayorofgods3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

The speeds in the comparisons fluctuate way to much to give an accurate comparison.

Speed = blurriness (Keep an eye on the speedometer while browsing)

Microsoft Xbox 3603716d ago

The 360 looks really blurry compared to the PS3.

gintoki7773716d ago

how could you not have heard of naughty dog until uncharted. Crash bandicoot and jak & daxter games ring a bell?
crash bandicoot series were some of the most popular games on ps1

randomwiz3716d ago

I think you mean @ G3TDOWN, not greywulf

"I never heard of Naughty dog until Uncharted 1"

are you serious? how old are you? My personal favorite game made by ND has to be Jak and Daxter, the original, which sold millions of copies.

princejb1343716d ago

let me put my fanboy goggles on, "the xb360 version looks much better than the ps3 version, just because the wheels on the cars shows extra textures and lines around the rim, making the car more realistic" takes of fanboy goggles, they both the same, play which ever version you feel more comfortable with and enjoy=]

Marceles3716d ago long as it looks better than NFS: Undercover, it's alright with me

thewhoopimen3716d ago

I see a huge difference between the two. Something called reflections off the roof and hood of the car. Look at the first two pics, and look at the third two pics.

In the first two pics... why does ps3 have branches reflecting off the roof but not the 360? 3rd set of shots shows a sun reflecting off the roof.

BIG difference... not just blurry, not blurry, dark or not dark.

shadow27973716d ago

Why doesn't the PS3's BMW have side-mirrors? O_o Check both the interior and exterior view, those things are MIA.

Environments look good, but car models look GT PSP level.

vhero3716d ago

Why dont you wait for shot by a respectable site if you really want to compare? Though if you really need comparison shots of multiplatform games you are obviously a fanboy.

ginganinja3716d ago

The bonnet's crumpled as well.
Comparing a brand new car to one that's been subtly damaged and one that is cruising to one racing in the first few shots.
Methinks the chap doing the comparison has an agenda...

Syronicus3716d ago

Websites that post comparison pics are douche bags. Seriously, this comparison stuff is so over rated. When I DL the demo of some of the games compared, I see no difference on my TV and it makes me wonder what it is that makes some of the screen grabs these guys post up different. There must be something because in reality (i.e. my own home) there is little to no difference.

peeps3716d ago

"now lets look at Naughty DOG ! I never heard of Naughty dog until Uncharted 1. Now look at uncharted 2, THE BEST looking game on console"

:o really?? first console this generation or something lol for a start ND were the guys behind crash bandicoot

LizardLicker3716d ago

"I never heard of Naughty dog until Uncharted 1."


iistuii3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

PS3 version of a multiformat has much more jaggies and a worst framerate.When oh when are they going to even get the games on par. I'm not talking about the exclusives as we all know most of those are fine, it's the majority of games, remember the exclusives are a very small amount compared to the total amount of games released on a system each year, and the ps3 versions are lacking STILL.. It's not me saying this its the 4 reviews ive seen so far all state it.

Valkyre3716d ago

@ jokesonyou

Ahahahaha indeed the joke's on me hahaha
Dude you are such an amusing retard that i really love every bit of your comments please post some more!! hahaha it is never enough with you man... damn... RESPECT... simply respect! ahahah

3716d ago
PS3istheshit3716d ago

i see is the lighting
ps3 has better contrast and 360 got better shading
but who cares i want another NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND SEQUEL!!

inveni03716d ago


Are you serious? Mass Effect 2 does NOT look as good as Uncharted 2. Period. Even the PC version of ME2 doesn't look as good.

Sad, sad, sad. You're so sad...

Valkyre3716d ago

[quote]ROFL No matter how many games look better on xbox the clones all say the same thing," yeah but Killzone 2 and Uncharted." ROFL. Well I guess you clones have at least two games that to use in your arguments for ps3. ROFL. Score PS3:2 360: All the rest....ROFL.[/quote]

Oh really?Just Killzone 2 and Uncharted huh?
You must be forgetting about Gran Turismo 5...
or even Metal Gear Solid 4 , or maybe even Ratchet and Clank 2 , or God of War III , or Heavy Rain , or The Last Guardian or ... or... or...

And i am asking you , what was the last shockingly good looking (ie :exclusive unless some morons here believe multiplatforms to be better looking than exclusives) game you had on your precious 360?

Ah yes... Gears of War 2 , 1 year ago... since then?Yeah thought so.

If you feel insecure about PS3 fanboys calling all the time about uncharted and Killzone , oh my God you are in deep trouble... because soon all Playslaves are gonna be rubbing in your face killzone 2 , uncharted 2 AND ratchet 2 , AND Gran Turismo 5 , AND The Last Guardian , AND Heavy Rain , AND God of War III... and i presume by then you will be kinda desperate...

BTW try playing all the above games on your PC... i dare ya :D have fun! :D

nycredude3716d ago

Before I even look at the likely BS comparison shots, let me ask.

Who the fvck cares about this comparison, let alone this game from "EA" when we will have GT5 (for 360 crowd Forza 3)?

stevenhiggster3716d ago

In all non fanboy honesty, I think in some pics the Xbox looks better and in some the PS3 looks better. All in all, I don't think there is any difference, at least none that anyone would ever actualy notice.
And anyway I think these articles are pretty pointless other than to incite flame wars. Most games are identicle on both consoles now or at least so similar that no one really cares.

Monsker3712d ago (Edited 3712d ago )


Those aren't branch reflections, they are scratches on the roof, anyone whose played the game will know that. Overall this game has crappy graphics anyway.

and get closer to the screen, there is some blur on a tree on the PS3 version. The Xbox360 version is light years better now, Ps3 is fail anD doomed. /SARC

hay3717d ago

Actually on 7th and 8th screenie in that building on the left in the Xbox version there's janitor cleaning floors. Obviously, janitor is worth getting definitive version of the game. Pick wisely. /jk

Megaton3717d ago

PS3 is last-gen tech incapable of janitor processing, confirmed.

coolirisGB3717d ago

The "/SARC" out of your comment and it will be spot on.

Megaton3717d ago (Edited 3717d ago )

lol @ the people who took my comment about "janitor processing" seriously and disagreed. I guess sarcasm tags really are necessary at N4G. Scraping the bottom of the barrel for intelligence around here.

TheBand1t3717d ago

lol ok Why Dis/Cooliris.

coolirisGB3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

lol ok TheBand1t/Nasim/Saaking/Greywu lf/The warrenty/N4G king/Microsoft Xbox 360

What's so funny about the PS3 version being inferior? You got nothing hence the spam reply lol Say otherwise I dare you.

LOL no matter what day or week I comment here you are always replying with-in minutes of my comments. You never fucin leave this site using 10 of your accounts bubbling them up and when you see me you jump into your *THEBANDIT" account lol.

Does work applications and fresh air mean anything to you?

TheBand1t3716d ago

Until I see a video comparison I'm not going to waste time comparing screens. Video games are meant to be seen in motion, not as a slidshow.

Now disagree with me with your other accounts of POG, Why Dis, Really duh, I did not murder him and of course, your latest cooliris. 5 disagrees from each account and five disagrees within moments of your comment. Coincidence?

My 1 Alt account is banned btw. My joke account Robert Kotick.

coolirisGB3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

As I Said. He never leaves.

You use some accounts for 360 bashing and at least one so that you can make shady smart ass stealth troll comments to 360 fans.


Pathetic! just enough time in between visits to sleep, sh*t & eat.

TheBand1t3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

Funny how you didn't post your comment page and my comment page next to each other.

Who is the troll here, exactly? And who never leaves?

F N A Pepper3716d ago

did you seriously just say that when your on this post! do you strive to be that intelligent really? bottom line is everyone here is busting xbox 360 fans first and because some post says that 360 version and ps3 version have considerable differences, wow! that is all i have to say, as much as my ps3 community rags on 360 about fanboyism, they sure are showing their faces here right now. way to go community way to act just like the 360 fanboys. as for the game who cares honestly this is a worthless post.

Xbox360Elite3717d ago

Due to poor ps3 ram and graphics processor ps3 will always fall behind in Multi-Plat and Exclusive's as you can see in these comparison screens xbox360 version is the superior version as always.

Nitrowolf23717d ago

you are funny and possible the most dellusional bot ever. Killzone 2 looks better then all 360 exclusive. MGS4 looks better then all of 360 exclusive. And Ucharted 2 blows everything exclusively to 360. Those arn't just my opinion they are facts.

AngryTypingGuy3717d ago

How about that, the 360 version looks better, and the PS3 fanboys mention the same 2 or 3 titles. How surprising.

Elvfam5113717d ago

It's funny because those two titles the Xbox 360 can't beat and you guys have to go to multiplatform let me say it again MULTIPLATFORM games to justify what the xbox 360 can do lol

Saaking3716d ago

Hang on to multiplats bot yet GT5 looks miles ahead of flopza. How do you explain that?

PlayStation X3716d ago

GT5 > Forza < Shift

multiplats > 360 Exclusives

randomwiz3716d ago

are we looking at the same screenshots... oh i see the problem... you have your fanboy glasses on. Seriously, take them off, they don't look that great

Nitrowolf23716d ago

did you read Xbox360 comment? He mention multiplat and exclusive fall behind for PS3. Shift looks lighter on ps3 and darker on 360. I think 360 has the edge here. But Why did he have to go on and say that other stuff? Its only common to defend your console.

AngryTypingGuy3716d ago

I didn't read any comments, I just looked at the pics. That's all I needed to do.

And to Elvfam511, I'll give the PS3 props and say that graphically it puts out incredible exclusives. The 360 hasn't had exclusives that truly take advantage of it graphically yet except for Gears, but I predict that will change with Splinter Cell and especially Alan Wake. But you have to remember that 90%+ games are multiplatform, and even the biggest PS3 fan needs to admit that most run better on the 360. That doesn't necessarily mean that the 360 is more powerful; it could just mean that it's easier to program for, which it is. But that's still a plus for the 360.

Not to mention, every time I have seen PS3 games in person, it always seems that the PS3 has more jaggies than the 360, which my critical eyes can't help but notice. Maybe it's just the screens that are on display in the stores, but they're Sony's own TVs. You'd think if it were the TVs that Sony would use a different one to make the PS3 look the best it can for potential buyers. I'm thinking about getting the Slim eventually for Blu Ray and 4-5 exclusives I want to play, but I'm going to be pissed if spend the money and the graphics don't blow me away when I get it home.

JonnyBadfinger3716d ago

are you seriously comparing Gears with Killzone!!?!

WOW i didnt know it was even possible to do such a thing, thats like comparing your foot with a chickens.

And that Gears screen hasnt been captured properly cause on my tv it looks far better than that. but the same goes for that Killzone picture, ive seen far better screen grabs of both.

But seriously comparisons have to stop, IN ALL multiplats the graphics and geometry of the game are exactly the same! only difference being the default gamma settings, which we all know if you prefer it on a darker/lighter setting all you gotta do is go into the menu select options and display settings.

But Im not interested in Shift, more focused on GT5 and Forza 3

AngryTypingGuy3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

PlayStation X - Yes, I'm aware that Killzone looks great, although it didn't look as great as I expected in the link you provided.

And for the record, I think Gears has great graphics...although, Gears has "cartoony" graphics - I prefer realistic style graphics, like in the Darkness, Condemned 2, Resident Evil 5, etc. I will say for Gears though, that when it comes to intricate details in the environment, Gears is awesome.

And I still stand by what I say...I see too many Jaggies on the PS3 every time I see it in the store. I guess it wasn't nicknamed the JaggieStation 3 for nothing when it came out. I think the 360 has better anti-aliasing.

napoleon_ist3716d ago

look you at your so-called superior exclusives, halo? a 640p FPS with fluo characters for kids!! forza?! forza 3 is a clone, has ugly graphics, 8 cars and 720p, gran turismo 5 is the original unmatched racer with unrivaled graphics, 12 cars, 1080p and a promising facial recognition system.

this article's pictures are sh1t! what are they offscreen SD? have you noticed the bmw is new on xbox360 and crashed on ps3 and you call this a comparison? i call this a damn fake.

AngryTypingGuy3716d ago

You're making an excuse because the car is slightly banged up in one of the comparison photos? Ha. You can still compare the background, and the cars in the other photos.

jack_burt0n3717d ago

I tell u whats failing is wonky comparisons there is no point in doing sreenshots at all as each one is different, the same minute odd of footage captured over hdmi so there is no brightness difference give u a much better idea.

edhe3716d ago

Point is - there is brightness difference. PS3 has always put out, at default, a "brighter" picture than the 360, washing out colours.

N4PS3G3717d ago

ps3 version is more blurry...still both look like $hit

JOLLY13717d ago

The c0ckpit gauges are quite blurry on the ps3 pics.
