Bioshock 2: PC vs. Xbox 360 vs. PS3 - Screenshot comparison

Bioshock 2 is available today for PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. But which version is the best looking one? After we've seen some console-only comparisons, now it's time for a big roundup including the PC-version of Bioshock 2. The pictures are taken with all details and in 1,280 x 1,024 pixel. As you can see, Anti-Aliasing has only a low impact on the quality of the graphics.

the 360 version looks sharper

but nothing to complain about :)


cigarette and the sky is green !

SebTh3660d ago

PS3 looks sharper imho. Look at the letters on one of the comparisons.

All versions seem to have better graphics (PC is a close one though) than their respective predecessors so I'm happy.

On a different note: Bungie, I have to ask. Are you working on a commission basis or does MS pay you a salary?

JasonPC360PS3Wii3660d ago

Look at the stairs and the floor the PS3 clearly is inferior

Max settings pc will win easily.

its also about the frame rate, while consoles are limited to 25-30fps. even a 3yr old pc will be pulling 60fps.

Bought the game at 33usd from steam.

Better price, superior graphics and performance pc is the obvious choice.

You should ask the PS3 fanboys on this site, including Hiphopgamer if they're being paid by Sony.

PC version should look a lot better, I guess they held it back.

ps3ftwin3660d ago

Bought the Pc version @ 45usd from steam, that price cant be beat. Got bioshock 1 free as well.

Pc obviously will be superior to both the console versions.

LostDjinn3660d ago (Edited 3660d ago )

Why would I ask PS3 "fanboys" if they're getting paid by MS?

As for being a hypocrite, go check my history.
How's that taste?

Edit:Stealth edit Sack_boi? I'll leave my post the same. See what happens when you think before you act. ;)

It seems they both have their ups and downs.

Look at where it says "FALLEN FALLEN IS BABYLON" and the PS3 one looks sharper.
edit: tried to link to the image but for some reason my links keep going to the same page. Anyway, look for the image with the graffiti that says "FALLEN FALLEN IS BABYLON".

This one as pointed out by Jason360 shows the stairs better on 360

edit 2:
The previous game had pop-in issues so it may just be the same problem again coming up differently on the two different platforms.


@ LostDjinn

he didn't say you should ask MS, he said " You should ask the PS3 fanboys on this site, including Hiphopgamer if they're being paid by SONY. "

Pennywise3660d ago

Jason360... Unreal. Because of the stairs the PS3 loses!

We all know Bioshock has a main character that is shy and insecure causing him to look at the ground most of the game while walking. Had this been a game that makes you look forward while moving and shoot things, your observation wouldn't of mattered.

Plus, we all know the objective of the game is to climb stairs the whole time.

Nice catch!! Totally not trivial and stretching.

SL1M DADDY3660d ago

If I were to list in order from best looking to not-so best...

PC > PS3 >< Xbox 360

SullyDrake3660d ago

I was gonna type up some elaborate post explaining how some PS3 screens are better and some 360 screens are better due to how close the character is to certain objects and textures, etc, but c'mon - THE GAME IS OUT NOW. QUIT ARGUING, GET OFF YOUR LAZY ASSES, AND PICK IT UP.

HighDefinition3660d ago

Look at your comments, your clearly inferior.


A Cupcake for Gabe3660d ago

Between the PS3 and 360...the PS3 looks better in 6 of the 9 shots.

The PC version looks the worst in half of these, so I am a little confused.

I'll just say it's the same game across all platforms.

vilanova3659d ago

yes the letters, the only thing better on PS3

fantasygamer3660d ago

both look good in different pics and both look bad in different pics o.o but wow.. they sure didn't show the PC version with its settings on MAX

SebTh3660d ago

As far as i have seen and read they have put the PC on max details but only on 1,280 x 1,024...

Raf1k13660d ago

There doesn't seem to be any AA on the PC version screenshots.

ProjectVulcan3660d ago (Edited 3660d ago )

Wow. Thats one crappy looking PC game if they are maximal settings....

Desperately in need of some forced AA, ALTHOUGH i think the aliasing is a side effect of running the game at 1280 x 1024 (4:3 v 16:9???) and then squishing it down to match the console versions. It has made pixel edges much more noticeable and nasty.

Just look at the nurse sign on the left of the shot on the PC version! Even with NO anti aliasing, it shouldnt look as terrible as that. Awful comparison, they have done a massive disservice to the Pc version. Why didnt they just set the game to 1280 x 720 on Pc too and have the correct aspect ratio for the comparison?

Anyways....Nhancer to the rescueeeeeee!!!!!!

Letros3660d ago (Edited 3660d ago )

PC version doesn't even have AA running, so your description is bogus.

toaster3660d ago

Seriously, what the fuuck kind of comparison is this? PC version isn't even on max res "The PC Screenshots emerged with all details and a resolution of 1,280 x 1,024"
Atleast have the PC version on 1600x1200.
Console vs. PC wise these comparisons mean nothing to me as the PC version isn't as good as it could be for a comparison.

Letros3660d ago

look below I uploaded a 1080p shot.

Hakimy3660d ago
