Amazing screenshots showing exactly how much extra detail the PC version has over the lowly 360. It's like comparing standard definition to high definition, except that the 360 is already high-def! So what does that make the PC? Expensive.
looks like the pc version pictures here and my 360 was alot cheaper than a pc capable of running this game !
The point is not the quality of the pictures, but rather the fact that it looks better on the PC. Really there should be no surprise there, as the PC has always been superior, unless you got a sh!tty setup, which most people do (but think they dont) and it doesnt have to cost thousands. I can put together a PC rig for under $1000 that'll blow away the 360.
Yea you might be able to do that but the variety of games associated with consoles is more dynamic than a PC by a huge margin.
that is bs look how choppy the screens are for the 360 esp the second screen, there is no way the game looks like that and I have it for 360, I am sick of all these meatheads trying to make the 360 look bad.
in HD it looks the same if not BETTER than gears of war if your gonna post a comparisson then dont do a fake one showing sh1tty screens that have been taken with a camera i shud b1tch slap you
this is very old
don't look comparable as pictures. Higher-res screenshots of something like the environment possibly could prove more of a point.
When he did the comparisson...did he have the 360 hooked to a standard def tv via composite cables? Because on my 1080p tv and my ELite via HDMI look waaaaay better than any of those screens. When people do comparissons...they should at least explain in detail what type of set up they are using...When they do PC comparssions of video cards...they always explain in detail what type of computer, ram, processor, monitor, ect.... With the Elite available and HDMI....they should let people know what they are using to compare. But I know one thing for sure....On my Tv with My Elite....Lost Planet looks spectacular and very very sharp.
OMG! Consternation! Horror! Shock! Please... High end PC tech is already far ahead of everything Xbox 360 and PS3 can offer and that's no surprise, that's the way it always works out.
Well that's what they are, the game looks nothing like those stupid 360 shots, well yeah if you use a freaking phone camera at VGA mode picturing 640*480 and using a standart-definition TV, yeah 360 version might as well look like that. Hell, I could just make Gears of War look like first-gen mario games with my V3's VGA camera. Some people are just stupid, like anyone would believe that crap? Lol I pity them.
well regardless resolution and graphics are not the same thing. The computer version should look better since it came out later plus computers are still more advanced than consoles. I didnt have a 360 when this game came out and was going to get it for the 360 but looks like i am going to wait for the pc version and at least wait for more conclusive evidence.
Gow has an edge with skin(mainly the Lucus) and shine from armour. Who's to say what weather conditions both these pic were taken in(if have played the game you know what i mean). Iv' played this so much i know for a fact the PC version of the Snow pic above was not taken durring an white-out, weather plays a big factor in what a pic will look like at any given time in LP, I'm not saying the PC version doesn't look better but take some comparison pics with the Aliens at the same distance or of buildings and Architecture. Never seen LP look like the bottom 360 version of those pics(maybe in 480i?).
Its just obvious more dev time, and the simple fact most gamer pcs recent ones outpower the 360, but those screenies are just stupid the game doesn't look like that at all.
Hey I have know doubt that a high end PC version would look better than whats available for the 360, but I have this game and I've never ever seen it look that bad.....there's no doubt in my mind that this is comparison is bull....yeah like I said a expensive PC should look better but come on those 360 pics look grainy and terrible. This guy should "try" harder next time. -lol
Crysis! Let’s face it Lost Planet and Crysis for the PC are running on DX10, which the 360 doesn't and never will have, which results in better detail. So 360 fan boys, not you FeralPhoenix, stop kidding yourselves.
NO ONE and that means NO one here claimed the PC version wouldn't look better, the topc of discussion was that Lost planet 360 doesnt look like the crap comparion pics he used, unless you use a crappy VGA cell phone camera, and run it on an SDTV using Composite or even an RF tuner...
I do know what I’m talking about since I'm majoring in computer science :) and were does it say that the pics are done on a cell phone or a tuner card? The topic of the discussion is "Lost Planet PC Demo Comparison Screenshots Show Inferior 360!" smart guy lol.
Not only are the textures at a higher resolution, other things such as Ambient Occlusion (GPU functions) aren't running on the 360. Even snow imprints are just textures in the 360 version, while the PC version has physical footprints in the snow. While some prefer to defend the 360 console by stating that the developers had more time to add features and programming to the PC version, that still doesn't explain why the 360 version shouldn't look better. Triple-core vs. Single or Dual-core. Dedicated Shaders vs. Unified Shaders. This seems to go against the very rhetoric that Microsoft has been spewing for the past 2 years. Then again, the obvious truth is that the 360 just isn't that powerful and recent footage of titles like Forza Motorsport, Too Human, and Halo 3 are showing that. It's an adequate system no doubt, but nothing special in terms of flexibility nor capability.
that you simply ignore the fact that Lost planet has been in dev for near or is it over a year now over what 360 had on the pc. AS well most pcs are more powerful then the 360... last time i checked microsoft never said 360 is more powerful then every pc, past present and future. yet i'm pretty sure i've heard sony allude to this.
Beat it geek! Go mix some lame music!
Biggest pile of bullshi!t. I have lost planet at home and in HD i can tell you there is no way in hell 360 version looks like that. Deliberate attempt at flamebait by ninamyers, by the way i think lost planet PC version is using DX10. But apart from that the 360 and pc version are pretty damn close, with PC version only showing slight improvements. Let me go post now the amount of games where 360 version is far superior to the PS3 version. Double agent anyone? No moon in the PS3 version.WTF???
iam a ps3 owner and i have to say... absolutely BS!!!!!! never saw such bad grafix in LP even on trailer or gameplay videos. maybe he connected his xbox360 on his mobilephone ... on high definition tv lost planet looks amazing.
360 is good PC a year and half old PC but a good one by now most PC can already do better graphics then that its not a super computer future proff like PS3. 360 is already showing facts of being an old console with old technology, brake downs everywhere, dvd that isnt enough to handle real next gen. system lack of HDMI and 1080p and ofcourse no hard drive.
Amazing in what way, that the setup for them is crp? I mean it would be expected the PC version would look better then the 360 version. So why would you have to create crp 360 version pics to compare and then somehow classify it as "amazing"? Take a real HD comparison the PC version will still look better (it better, at least) and there still will be nothing amazing about it.
Lost Planet: Extreme Condition is the first game demo that takes advantage of NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series DirectX 10-compatible graphics processors.
I have posted not photoshopped screenshots 1 month ago. http://n4g.com/News-35127.a...
On my self assembled $2000 machine built 7months ago, I will say that overall the graphics are really amazing. Compared to 360 they are sharp and more clear but then again, the settings I chose were mostly high with multi gpu and multi core options enabled. Avg pc's wont be having $700 GPU and $300 CPU (priced in sept 06) However the controls and movement felt laggy and not as responsive as 360 version. And having played with a controller, kb playing felt different. Fair to say that this is demo version and final version should have tightend the controls. But if i had to get it for either pc or 360, i'd go for 360.
its obvious that PC version looks better.. becuz they have more time to OPTIMIZE it for DX10 and they knew they will have more ram available on pc.. higher res texture ,footprint .. and may be more things to do... they had extra time with a more powerfull machine.. so who cares.. we enjoy LP with beautiful details (enough to blow a HDTV) right now.. and if someone hasnt 360 he/she can buy DX10 graphic card and play it on PC later
Bullsh1t. Whoever Post this bullsh1t needs a slap. PC version is what 360 was created on geniuses. If anybody played the the game you would know that 360 version does'nt look like that grainy and ashy. end of discuss close topic.
Wrote an open-minded, non-biased headline <sarcasm>. It's a sad statement about what this site is becoming when a story with a headline like that gets approved. The Timmies are taking over.
This is a NO BRAINER, of course the PC will look superior, particularly if its a DX10 card running at a high resolution, but this is also much more expensive than a 360.
Hey DJ alias LoveHateTragedy (WTF are you doing with that [email protected] name dude? Oh wait I saw that little movie of you on your website. Actually it fits ya) "LoveHateTragedy - 2 Hours ago 12 - I remember these. Not only are the textures at a higher resolution, other things such as Ambient Occlusion (GPU functions) aren't running on the 360. Even snow imprints are just textures in the 360 version, while the PC version has physical footprints in the snow.

It's an adequate system no doubt, but nothing special in terms of flexibility nor capability. " DJ first off: do you know which PC they used for the PC version? They might have used a multicore also. Plus, the pictures of the 360 version are not upto the level that is reality on my screen. Thus probably made by some Sony droid like yourself with a mobile phone or something like that. Last thing to prove you're always full of sh!t. Why don't you mention Gears of War? That looks better then anything out on the PC or let alone the PS3. Thus makes me say: the 360 is so powerfull the PS3 can't touch it. The PS3 is a sh!tty Bottleneck 3 with bad hardwaremix, you could call it the N64 rev2 actually. And please drop us some DEV info from that cute site of yours. Oh yeah everybody this is DJ so you can start clicking the negative button again so he will change his name. Pathetic
seriously.... how old is this? a year? i would like to see the PC push that out to my HD so I can hook up 1080p while I'm downloading an mp3.
you pay 300/400$ for x360, and you get low version of Lost Planet. you pay 500/600$ for some high end pc feautures(everyone have pc, just for upgrade for many games ahead like crysis), and you get the high version of Lost Planet. it`s simple. :)
The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Oblivion are 'inferior' graphically to the best gaming rig PCs... Well I guess both consoles suck right? Oh, what do you mean I don't get to play Ninja Gaiden on PC? oh... This is obvious (i.e. not newsworthy).
These screens are not a proper comparison both need to be HD.
and as a current PS3 and PC owner. The game doesn't look as bad as they have shown it to look on the 360. There are several factors to take under consideration here like what resolution was the PC version running at? How was the frame rate? And what were the in-game settings. For those proud high end PC owners (who only work to keep up with the 6 month up grade trend). There's not much to be proud of, the expense that it takes to run a next gen game with all settings maxed and at high resolutions. Doesn't really mean sh!t! As us console gamers can just look forward to buying the games we want without worrying if our console will be able to run it to begin with. So we can look forward to good games and good food without having to worry about living on raman noodles and playing in a dark lonely room by ourselves.
IF you think about it PC's really have no limits so why is it so amazing that the game may just look better than on the 360!!
Ok I downloaded the dx10 demo and the graphics look much cleaner!One problem frame rates.I have the game for 360 but it did not chug like this at high resolution!I set all setting to max with a display res of 1280 x 960 and I was getting about 16 fps average! My rig: OS : Win Vista Home Premium(32 bit) processor : Amd 5600+ X2 dualcore 1.81 GHZ Ram : 2gb 800mhz dual channel GPU : Geforce 8800 GTX
I'd say you're getting 16FPS for this game because: 1. Vista/Nvidia drivers are not so hot right now for DX10 2. Your processor is inferior to C2D 3. You probably have the game at 4xAA and you really only need 2xAA BTW, I downloaded the demo too, but for DX9. I had everything turned up too at 1280 x 960, but had it at 2xAA. I had an average 36FPS.
Isnt it obvious since PCs can be loaded up with 2 Gigs of ram which can hold much more textures than the xbox 360 or ps3. But bang for buck the 360 version is still the top, people reported than this game chugs even on an Nvidia 8800 GTS with 2 Gigs of ram and an intel core 2 but those are typically running at higher resolutions but none the less it was hard to even make it playable.
Its BS, i play mine on HD LCD and looks sharp and killer. The moron that posted this has blurred out the 360 version to make it look inferior. PC gaming is on its way out anyways. Get a life man!
Actually, PC gaming is just starting up with DX10. You'll see from now on, anything made for DX10 will look better than anything from the 360. Don't worry about the PC market, it's doing great. :)
PC's are still the best place for casual, RPG, MMO, FPS, and RTS games. PC just doesn't have anyone championing their cause. Just look at the revenue from Warcraft or PopCap games. Sorry if our version looks better, but thats what happens when your not constrained by static hardware.
even if there was a difference which there isn't for me anyways, a 360 costs 499.99 canadian, a good pc STARTS at 2k$ so id rather have 1 350 and 1500$ of games n accessories than 1 pc and nothing else. Id like to see a pc running 512mb of ram and 256mb video card and similar processor try sumthin like that, the details wuld make it look like crap.
ok i am NOT joking, i dont own the game so i am not sure if these screens are correct, but even on the demo i have never seen bad screens on the Xbox 360 like i saw when looking at the (small) pics on the link. so with this in mind i am thinking this isnt right. does anyone have links to a HD or at least just a decent size image of the both?
For a high end PC rig it better look better than the 360 version.
OMG screw the 360...I'm totally getting a PC setup...hey just by any luck does any have like 1500 bucks to spare...how lame is this article...this just in BMW is better than KIA
1.1 "The point is not the quality of the pictures, but rather the fact that it looks better on the PC.

I can put together a PC rig for under $1000 that'll blow away the 360." WOW....for more than TWICE the price of a 360 (technically 3 times, since the Core will run the game as well), you can assemble a PC that will "blow away the 360". Congrats....you've just shown EXACTLY why the console market is flourishing, and PC-exclusive gamers are largely considered to be Geeky dinosaurs in the games industry.
-Intel C2D 6600 (2.6 Ghz/core) -256mb Nvidia 8600 GT DX10 -2 gigs ram Simply put, my 360 put this to shame, performance wise. Sure, some of the textures and effects were a tad cleaner, but the drop in framerate ruined that fact. It only makes sense that the DX9 PC version outperforms the DX10, since the 360 is DX9-based. I'm glad I bought LP for my 360 back in January; I'd have been pissed if I waited all this time for such a disappointment.
Update: It should be noted that these screenshots are official ones from Capcom. Some people have been surprised at the difference in quality and speculated that the 360 shots were somehow altered. We assume Capcom would have no reason to make their own game look bad, so this comparison would appear to be legit.
well duh developers make games out of Pc's dont you think the PC will have greater supiority?
If you look at your statistics more people are playing PC FPS MMo's and many more games they have the most played MMO WOW and FPS counter strike from what i see PC online games have a longer life span the an online game for a console mostly because of mods which consoles due not have at the time.
