Saboteur, the last game of Pandemic, is now available. And which version has the best graphics? A new graphic comparison shows that the PS3-version is the loser. PC wins.
awful to me on both systems and pc hope the gameplay makes up for it O_O
You must be an ever loving blind as hell sand in your vagina fan girl. ps3 version is the worst of the bunch easily sceene by the naked eye.
If you see the same that I do, PC is the worst version of all! Sure, it is the most sharp, but look at it, is f*cking jagged! On the other hand, the best version might be PS3 because it is the only one that has some AA and also the best DOF, although it looks blurry and has the shortest shadow draw distance. The X360 is also very good: more jagged than PS3, less blurry and more shadow draw distance. I wonder why lighting looks so different (but both good) between consoles. PC the is the worst version imo. Check all I say is true.
You know you can easily turn 2-16X AA on any PC game. I'm guessing they just didn't use any here for some reason. But by just looking at the screens there I'd agree PS3 looks the best.
its hard to make out with just pictures. i am sure in the end pc will be the superior version. even running on a 2 yr old gpu.
I tried looking at these to see what they're talking about and I can't tell the differences. The PS3 version looks, as most PS3 ports do like it has some kind of lightly blurred effect which I think softens the image and makes it look that much more real. Other than that, I can't really spot a difference between these. Although, I have to admit that Saboteur wasn't really on my radar before this and from what I've seen here I might have to pick this one up. I'm intrigued. This comparison is close enough to render it meaningless. Just out of curiosity, I wonder what performance is like. For sure if this were running on my PC I'd be pushing 6 fps.
what are the specs on your pc? whats the gpu on it?
serisouly, they look the same, sure they differ a lil. But taht's normal and common sense that due to the different AA methods cgu and cpu architecture the games will differ slightly. but if you think you can say that one is better then the other then you seriously mistake your personal taste for technical knowledge. i nearly throw up by now with all those gamers, that think only because the play video games they know what a game looks performs or plays by some lousy screenshots. as allways only ONE rule applyes. BUY THE GAME FOR YOUR PLATTFORM and shut up about the plattforms you dont even own. if you own both i can assure that the choice of plattform is more about the controller and what plattform you envy most due to ertain aspects as if you want live or not.
NOOOO!! All of you guys are wrong! The Turbo Graphics version looks way better than the PC, 360 and PS3 version! Anyways yeah the PS3 version looks great. This is the first time that i see a 3rd party 360 game that looks like most 3rd party PS3 games..... look at that blurry mess on the 360....wow
How can anyone take these silly german comparisons seriously?
I just come for the kranskies
Bubbles for the avatar!
The PS3 is the clear loser? I don't think so. The PS3 version has FSAA while the 360 version has no AA (more jaggies); also, in most of the screenshots, it seems as though the PS3 version has more contrast and deeper colors.
shows how petty we can be... squabbling about a 6/10 piece of crap. File this one under, WHO CARES.
PC version (With decent GPU) > PS3 Version > 360 version (More jaggy) So much for the "Better multiplats" argument.
Fail! The point of jmmurillo is why to post a substandard PC screenshot. This isnt even a video. You just need to max out, putting at least 4xAA, and grab the screen. Is this a openworld game? it doesnt look very hot in any platform.
Anyway, I was talking about the screenshots.
It's a fail. jmmurillo obviously isn't a pc gamer...and knows nothing about pc visual settings. You can tell that by the terminology used. I think you're giving more credit than is due. The win is the pointing out the capabilities of a capable pc to a console gamer. Their false sense of superiority is... disappointing to say the least. Not that there is anything wrong with consoles. I love them too, but please inform yourself.
PS3 looks washed out.. nothing new.
What else is new
sony version inferior and cost $4.7 billion extra to make
360 has RRoD.... nothing new. 360 down in sales.... nothing new. Microsoft Entertainment division, never made profit, down $6.7b.... nothing new
This is especially prominent in the 4th screenshot. But then again without those MS fanboy glasses that would be impossible to see.
Ps3 losing again.Who is suprised?
xbox loses to the pc too. its just not the ps3. now if you are comparing the ps3 to the xbox, then they will be about even.
i wonder if this game will be worth the purchase. guess i might wait if steam has it on their christmas discount. i might pick it up. cant be bad for 24usd.
Well PC will always win I will be forcing 16x qaa and Vsync, hopefully getting 5870 soon, 5760 by 1080p here we come
Man i want a 5870.......you wouldnt happen to know which version of the 5870 would be best? I am really interested in the Powercolor version but then again the Sapphire interest me as well. Spec wise they are pretty much the same. BUt its been known that there are companies out there that tend to add a bit more horse power to their version of that specific card.
Currently all models of the 5870 from every manufacturer have the same clocks, they call the ones varying from the standard clocks 'non reference cards', and they usually take a few months to bring them out, otherwise no one would buy the standard ones. ATI also has a policy of not letting any of the smaller vendors release non-reference cards until the larger ones like Gigabyte or Sapphire have released theirs So in short, clocks are the same across the board, and from what i've been told Powercolour is a great brand, they are also usually cheaper than some other brands because you do pay for the name. But whats in a name?
Can't wait for Bayonetta, Darksiders, Dark Void, Army of 2 40th Day, Bioshock 2, and Dante's Inferno comparison in the coming months. I only buy the best version. Batman AA on PS3 and Borderlands on X360 for example.
batman AA and borderlands were both best on the pc. unless you ment on consoles. Both were about a tie on either console.
Lens of Truth said Batman was better on the PS3. Eurogamer said 360. IGN said the graphics were better on the 360 but not enough that anyone would notice but the PS3 version had the joker and that was cool. 19 times out of 20 the differences are so minuscule that if we didn't have comparisons hooking them up to measuring equipment no one would ever be able to tell the difference between versions. Personally, I play games on the console that doesn't charge me extra to do so and has reliable hardware. Those two factors are infinitely more important to me then the odd blurred texture.
still unsure whether to go PC or ps3 for this one, can't make my mind up from a few screenshots. I need to do some research...
My god, I don't care which version is the best, the graphics look like pilotwings off n64 on all platforms, no amount of AA can save this abomination, I especially won't buy it after pandemic released my personal most hated POS game of all time, LOTR conquest, that game right there explains why they went bankrupt. BAAAAAAAAAAAD quality games
/agree with #8. This looks bad on all platforms. Pandemic hasn't made a decent game since the first Mercs. Mercs 2 had so many problems. Mercs Inc sounds like an attempt to fix Mercs 2 and throw in multiplayer. Don't get me started with LoTr. Add Saboteur to the rental list for 2009.
I don't know why I got a disagree, is it because this game is, according to you, "teh best", or is it because I didn't say that your platform of choice is the best. I can't get much more neutral than saying they all look terrible...which they do. I also dare you to play LOTR conquest and then tell me something positive about pandemic, it is simply not possible (this is not directed at you Cysquatch) @ below that doesn't change the fact that their last few games have been terrible. Chances are this game will be as bad considering that they were still under EA until the end. Or does the EA scapegoat come and go as is suitable, and this game will be a miracle that defies the odds. 2 great new IPs have come out from EA in recent years, there is no one to blame but pandemic
@ dchalfont Sorry but back in 2005 when Pandemic released Mercenaries Playground of destruction, Star Wars Battlefront II and Destroy all Humans it was one of my best years of gaming and I'm sure others will agree. Pandemic Made some amazing games when they were independent, EA killed them like almost everything they touch.
xbox and ps3 look almost identical, the only difference are each plattforms + and -. if you really dare to see a difference that has any effect if the gam eis better or worse on either console. then you are an approved fanboy. make up your mind, its about the game not the 0.5% difference. the days of differing multiplats are long gone. ....
Yay, the MS zombies have another (allegedly) superior multiplatform to skip around with hands held tight and are crowing about it once again. There's something seriously wrong when the best a console owner can offer is "best (by a few pixels) for multiplatform games". Even then it isn't EVERY one, and when it is it's usually such a marginal difference that only anal tools such as them grasp onto to such things and blow it out of proportion. They really should learn that when you're hanging from a cliff by your fingers, you don't go waving your arms about. And these sad, shuffling 360 robots are most DEFINATELY dangling by their fingertips... The yawning abyss awaits.
Now its just a matter of what version has the best loading, framerate and less screen tearing. If I get it, I'll be getting it for Playstation 3 most likely. My 360 won't read disc and that makes me sad.
One time I ate 6 burritos in one sitting...true story.
METALGEARISING and STREWTH2009 say burritos taste better when playing the 360. Eat them while playing PS3 and they taste "washed out"...
I think the real moral of the story is that burritos taste good, no matter what platform you play while eating them :S
i don't wanna scroll to see everything, ill get this on ps3 no matter the graphics
I wish they would take advantage of the pc and throw in some serious bump mapping. The game would look soooo much better...
agreed and anyone who thinks different is a whiney little cunt...just enjoy your burritos and stfu lol
Needless to say, they all suck ***.
