A video comparing the PC version and Playstaion 3 versions of Dragon Age: Origins.
Close, would like to see in HD.
Where's the 360 version in this comparison?
@1.1- They already did a 360 comparison, it's on N4G I believe. The PC version will always have better graphics, I don't see the point of comparing them in this way.
Why did they not support keyboard/mouse for the PS3?
Very impressive for Bioware's first (that we know of, ME 1 or 2 is probably in the works) PS3 title. Great developers. I was iffy on this game until the reviews started pouring in, and while I usually don't give an iota of weight to a reviewer's opinion, the sentiments seem to be unanimous in this case. Waiting for damned EB to call! (Canadian, we always get cross border shipping delays.)
"Why did they not support keyboard/mouse for the PS3? " i guess it would mean having to develop both the console interface and k&m interface when it's much easier for them to just dev the console interface for both the 360 and ps3
Both the Ps3 and PC each have their own games which are graphically superior while compared to this game.
On consoles certain individuals feel that their version is superior because of graphic comparisons and derail from the fact the gameplay is pretty much the same as well.
WOW THE CELL IS AMAZING, the power of the cell with its advanced emotion engine capabilities blow the PC out of the water only on n4g...
LOL PC owns PS3 graphically.
And the open zone is that way >>>
you do realize that PS3 is a console with limited RAM and processing powers. if not then so much for your time in school.
Its the truth I'm not bashing or nothing. I'm getting it for PS3 cause i don't have a good PC.
Durr, im just stating the obvious. PC is always better 99.9% of the time.
Everyone knows the PC handles and plays the game best. The devs infer it, reviews state it, and video confirms it. No one EVER wants to admit the PC version looks better. It's always "unfair" and PC gamers are "elitists" for saying so. Geez. Just give credit where it's due and enjoy your game. It's pathetic to read everyone try to take away from certain versions so they can feel they bought "the best".
Yeah, the PC is for the best graphics, the most complex and responsive interfaces... and the highest cost, most technical issues and, all too often, most obnoxious DRM. The consoles are for decent graphics, standardized interfaces... and lower cost and trouble. There are people who prefer the PC, and people who prefer the console, and even those who don't care. The PC is always going to have better graphics, and you're always going to pay more for that. If it's worth it to you, and you have (or are) decent tech support - go for it, Mazel Tov!
If you call that owning, i just gotta ROFL. It's close even in the low quality vid, PS3 eats the 360 version alive. 360 = old tech. PC = expensive tech. look at the machine u need to run it decently.lol.
PS3 holding it's own just fine. Of course it would be a different story comparing their respected highest resolutions. Bioware seem to have a good handle on the PS3 seeing this is their first game. Edit: Unintentional reply, meant to be a stand alone post. Sorry.
A great PC isn't that expensive anymore. You can get a machine with a quad-core, 4GB of RAM, and an HD 4850 for around $600.
Which is only twice as much as the current gen consoles LOL, and with them you get the benefit of not missing out on games like Uncharted 2, !nFamous, MGS4, HALO 3 ODST, Ratchet & Clank, etc... etc... with that extra 300$ I would buy a netbook and have the best of both worlds, or a sound system for that matter. Fact is if your looking for the most fun Playing a game ( Not staring at it ) then consoles have, and will always win, hands down.
lol, i feel bad for you REALLY i do. Till i see a comparison between the PS3 and 360 version i call your words fanboy foolishnes!
Any reason they just didn't combine video of all three versions?
Still would rather play it on my couch on the flatty. I even got a badass pc (played AoC on highest settings) its alright but im not into the keyboard and mouse deal, always liked the controller console deal. Although i do miss the CS days on 56k lol. And ya where is the 360's, not that i care but if your gonna roll out the carpet. Lets get them all out there.
You know you're version sucks when it isn't even in the same comparison.
OMG there's no PS3 there! http://n4g.com/NewsCom-4214... That means that the PS3 version must be inferior! buahahahahaha
i bought my ps3 after the 1st price drop back in Aug 2007 for $500. i also bought a pc around that time for around $800. guess which will play DAO. i know that the pc is capable of better looking games than DAO. but from a developer's standpoint, there is no reason to do that extra work when the console version will sell double and only a few pc nerds will get to see a significant graphical difference. where is the ps3 versus crapbox?
Low res video comparisons suck. Where's the screenshots and HD video D:
Haha, we're spoiled :D
I'm watching a 1280x720 30fps video here. I guess that is the native resolution of DAO on PS3, how is that "low res"?
1280x720 in PC gaming would be considered low resolution, 1650x1050 would be seen as an average resolution. But obviously to keep a comparison inline thats what has to be used, seeing thats the console resolution, that's why there's little point comparing console to PC.
I mean, the video itself isn't very good quality.
if I ran games at 720p. I'd have to buy a 120hz pc monitor. I doubt I'd ever drop below 120fps in these multiplat games at that res. But then...WoW thank god I'm not limited to gaming @ 720p...that would blow.
Since when do we compare PCs to consoles? Everyone knows PCs have better visuals.
The comparison is for performance mainly not the graphics.
"LOL PC owns PS3 graphically" LOL Uncharted 2 owns graphically dragon age PC version. We all know that Dragon age engine is build for the PC architecture and not the full potential of the PS3 architecture.
anyway multiplats on ps3 uses only 2 to 3 cell cores,so much more room for improvement
Keep telling yourself that the ps3 has "UNLIMITED POWER!", how the hell would you know how many spe's this game was optimised for. Every game is different, every developer is different. Be thankful that the ps3 version is better than the 360 version.
Well how is the ps3 version better? Does it come with exclusive content? If you're going to say graphics well it doesn't make it better. :/
We all know we talking about two differend architecture.
In fact looks many years behind most 360 and PS3 games that use real nex gen engines Gears 2 and Assassins Creed 2 for example look generations ahead, like 5 generations ahead or more So, why not compare ? The game is one of the worst looking i have seen this generation easilly, only art saves it, the engine seems 100x worst than most real next gen looking games, and especically Mass Effect It is really funny that Mass Effect from the same company looks like a DX10 game and Dragon Age like a DX8 one !!!! Unbelievable stuff there, probably it is the multipltform attempt, which now seems like a bad joke than a real try from Bioware part To make the engine multipltform, they had to move 10 generations back as it seems, they could as easilly have made it 2D instead
I guess they did not use a powerful pc, there's clear stutter seen on the PC side.
isnt it strang how the ps3 version shows his hand and the pc doesnt?
Console that's 299 vs something more expensive...I would expect it to have better graphics. PCs are constantly improving, it's no surprise it looks better. -_- Stupiddddd comparison.
pc can win at multiplats but ps3 owns it in exclusives
Yes, that's is what i meaning :) I get one disagree from a loser without a argument :) Funny is that. Hey loser, for being disagree with me explain this. 100% from the multi engine use 100% PC architecture and the PS3 is also 100% PC architecture proof, but it wil not 100% USE the power what the PS3 has.
Half your games are not even hd any game on pc will look better than ps3 this is a fact, hell my rig will make modern warfare 2 look better than uncharted
Fanboys are retatrds for thinking that
if this was aps3 exclusive it might surpass that pc
any multiplat on the pc will look better then the ps3 exclusives. farcry2 asssins creed fall out 3 not going to even mention crysis lol. also lets not forget pc gaming is cheaper then consoles.. so while ps3, 360 users pay a high price they get inferior quality for multiplats thats for sure. hell if ps3 is so darn powerful, why arent most of its exclusives in 1080p? ps3 has like over 300 titles out now.. only 20 of them do 1080 (even that doesnt come with full proper AA).. could it be ps3 has some power limitations and 1080p even on most exclusives is out of reach? naa sony fanboys belive ps3 has infinite power lol.. keep dreaming boys.
The 360 version is not up for comparison since they know it's inferior. No point.
its not like the game comes anywhere near ps3s max on pc with multiplats you can adjust settings on ps3 you cant ps3 exclusives are the best looking on any platform despite price so it is fair if its unfair with exclusives then its unfair for pc ps3 rules
I Have no Idea what you just said. But comparing a Console to the PC is a Low Blow.
ps3 does a decent job but like every1 says can't really compare consoles to pc's (yeh i'm also refering to the 360 to pc dragon age comparison) tbh tho it sounds like a massive game so i'm not too surprised the consoles took a hit graphically (and as ppl have mentioned, to acutally get the great looking pc graphics you need a heafty rig) regardless the games getting a lot of praise so i'd be surprised if the graphical limitations of the consoles for this game would put off a ps3/360 owner from buying it.
ok if Comparing a Console to a PC Makes since then the PC Must be equal to that of the said console in price. Even then It's stupid.
""Everyone knows the PC handles and plays the game best. The devs infer it, reviews state it, and video confirms it. No one EVER wants to admit the PC version looks better. It's always "unfair" and PC gamers are "elitists" for saying so"" If you want a fair fight....try to compare the PS3 version vs.PC hardware of 3 years old. Yes PC is better when you run this game on new hardware.The problem with PC fanboys is the fact they compare consoles with new PC hardware.Some PC fanboys can't even afford new hardware to run games on high settings but the knowledge that there is faster hardware is enough for these guys to brag about it...i just don't get it? I owned a high end PC an few years ago and i was amazed by the Doom 3 version running on Xbox....PIII hardware with 64MB ram.Respect...........
It's perfectly fair to compare a multiplatform game made for three different platforms that takes advantage of three different sets of hardware. Comparing *exclusive games* however is actually pretty useless, imo. Also, use the reply button.
you have to give Bioware a round of applause for doing a good job here. yes the framerate can be choppy on the PS3 version, but it looks great graphically. amazing considering its the first time they made a PS3 game.
It's silly trying to compare anything with the PC since everybody has different configurations on PC's. Some have crappy PC's and some have suped up PC's.
looks the same to me
getting this on PS3, not to say it's better than the PC version but I have a horrible PC from a gaming perspective... So yeah, my two cents lol PSN: BldyShdw
it's the same game on all three equipment
Ps3 didnt do bad :)
What is the point ? It is like comparing pac-man visuals on PC and PS3
dam look at all the ignorant ps3 fanboys trying to defend the cell lol. there about 300 titles out on the ps3 now.. only 20 of them do 1080p (that too with low AA or none at all). if the almighty cell was so powerful why arent rest of the games running at 1080p... lol even most first party games arent 1080, including the latest tombraider 1.5 *cough* uncharted2 runs at 720... why wasnt it made 1080? could it be there just isnt enough juice int he ps3? lol at the end console users be it ps3 or 360 pay a higher pricing for their games *taxes to micro or sony* and end up with lower res games, then they talk graphics lol
You don’t know what you’re talking about... You talk about resolution and AA... If you take Batman on PC at the higher settings (giant resolution and AA)side to side with Uncharted 2, KZ2, Heavy rain, etc… I guarantee you will be very, very embarrassed. Take out the glasses and start looking things strait… PS: please tell me besides Crysis what marvelous (graphics speaking) games PC have?
The PC myth... The only PC game that come close to U2 graphics prowess is Crysis running in a very expensive rig.. No other game on PC comes even close.. Come on open your eyes!!!
